Strike Back
It's a new month, and a new episode of Strike Back: Origins. Episode two of six airs tonight on Cinemax, and we've got a teaser for you, as well as some brand-new behind the scenes material.

Porter (Richard Armitage) continues his attempt to infilitrate the terrorist group that kidnapped a journalist in the hope that he can then bring her home, while his former colleague turned new boss Collinson (Andrew Lincoln) watches with a wary eye, mostly because like all TV bosses, he doesn't have any other options.

Here's a clip of Porter trying to stop a planned execution.

But that's not all. ...

50 Hottest Celebrity Guys Of 2012

December 8th, 2012 8:33am EST
Hottest Guys of 2012
Who are the sexiest guys in music, film and television? We narrowed our picks down to 50 in our annual list, spotlighting those who made our hearts skip a beat when we watched them perform.

Channing Tatum and Matthew McConaughey bared quite a bit in "Magic Mike," while "The Avengers" actors got our blood flowing with their explosive action scenes.

We lusted after Chris Hemsworth in "Snow White And The Huntsmans" and felt a little bit giddy when rumors swirled that Justin Bieber broke up with Selena Gomez (he didn't.)

British imports The Wanted and One Direction also caught our fancy, as ...

'The Walking Dead' Recap 2x06 'Secrets' Is Filled With Secrets, Secrets And Even More Secrets

Last time on The Walking Dead: Andrea shot Daryl because she’s a hot-headed moron and Glenn discovered a horde of Walkers in the barn. Also Lori is pregnant.

Carl and Lori feed some chickens. Patricia feeds some chickens to the horde of Walkers. What is going on over here?

Glenn tries to get Maggie to tell him why Hershel is keeping the Walkers, but she just tells him to keep a secret. Dear, sweet Glenn is a horrible liar. I predict he’ll tell Dale within 30 minutes.

Andrea apologizes for shooting Daryl. Daryl is a much nicer person than I am and forgives her... on the condition ...

We open with a flashback. Before Rick woke up from his coma, when Shane and Lori and Carl were on the run from the Walkers, a crowd of people waits on the freeway. Carol offers to share some food with Carl and Lori. Carol’s jerk of an abusive husband (whose name I’ve forgotten because he’s such an abusive jerk) intimidates Carol into keeping the food. Shane and Lori venture up the road to investigate. Carl and Sophia start to make friends. Helicopters fly over the highway. The ‘copters are dropping bombs on Atlanta--Lori fears for Rick’s life.

Real time: Lori wakes up, prepares for...

When we last left our plucky zombie fighters, Shane used a not-quite-innocent-but-probably-still-nice man to save Carl's life. Sophia is still missing, but Rick and his crew have found refuge with Hershel Greene and his family at their farm.

The gang rides up to the Greene Farm. Carl wakes up. He’s alive! He asks after Sophia, so naturally Rick lies through his teeth and tells Carl she’s fine. They bury Otis (also known as the idiot who shot Carl). Shane feels ridiculously guilty that he basically killed Otis. Otis’ wife asks Shane to say a few words. Shane doesn’t want to... but...

Shane and The Idiot (I’ve already forgotten his name), run from the Walkers in the high school. In a voice over, Rick tells Lori about the time Shane stole the principal’s car while they were in school, drove it three miles away and ran back in time to finish his lunch. Rick tells Lori that Carl will be all right--that Shane will make it back in time. In the RV, Daryl patrols for Sophia. Andrea joins him.

Shane and the idiot are cornered on the top of the bleachers in the gym. The Idiot selflessly offers to get off the bleachers and give Shane cover while Shane escapes through a wi...

AMC's Darabont Free Season 2 Premiere Emotionally Empty - My Goodbye To "The Walking Dead"

October 17th, 2011 8:10pm EDT
The Walking Dead
I must admit the only reason I got into "The Walking Dead" in the first place was the creative team of filmmaker Frank Darabont and KNB effects maestro Greg Nicotero. (Sorry AMC – you’re not that great on your own!) Being a movie guy all the way who doesn’t watch much TV, I was interested to see if the dynamic duo could convert a cinema lover like me to the boob tube week after week. The pilot episode was some of the best TV I’ve ever seen, not to mention pure Darabont, with zombie fun but also a distinctively dramatic and emotional through line you can only get with a director of that c...

The Message From 'The Walking Dead' Premiere - 'Expect More Of Everything With Heightened Suspense'

October 5th, 2011 1:00pm EDT
THE WALKING DEAD SEASON 2
"The Walking Dead" red carpet premiere was filled with juicy tidbits about the season to come, as well as insights into the characters we grew to love. I had the honor of interviewing many of the cast and crew of AMC's hit show (season two premieres Sunday October 16, 9/8 central).

Perhaps the most exciting new development in season two is that the gang, having left Atlanta, will take shelter with Hershel Greene and his family on their farm. The Greenes are also characters in the comic books, so fans of the original series will recognize some familiar faces. The new family means new dynami...
