March 21st, 2011 3:37pm EDT
Big Love
Last night, HBO ended its series "Big Love" with a bang to say the least. For those of you that followed the show and haven't seen the series finale yet, (spoiler alert) the star and main character, Bill Henrickson, (played by Bill Paxton) was shot and killed by his neighbor. The word on the street is that it was a very fitting and a decent ending to the series. HBO has provided us with a behind the scenes reaction to the series conclusion.

Check out the video above and hear how the creators and writers came to the series conclusions, as well as Bill Paxton's initial reaction and thoughts...

Chloe Sevigny Is An Animal

September 5th, 2010 9:00am EDT
Chloe Sevigny
Chloe Sevigny went to HBO's Post Award Reception for the Emmy Awards wearing a short, leopard print dress. Sometimes a star wears the dress, but in this case the dress is wearing the star. And we don't like that Chloe matched her lipstick to her clutch.

Chloe made headlines earlier this year for blasting the latest season of her show "Big Love." She was reported as saying, "It was awful this season, as far as I'm concerned. I'm not allowed to say that!...I feel like it kind of got away from itself..."

The actress moved quickly to play down her remarks, blaming the media for blowing the si...

Top 10 TV Bad Guys

December 27th, 2007 10:06am EST
Prison Break
They're sneaky and snarky. They scheme and slay. TV is full of bad guys (and girls), from those who make being bad look like fun to those who make us clutch the pillow to our chests.

It takes some excellent writing and an excellent performance to make a bad guy who is a worthy opponent but also one that the fans don't want to see defeated. It's no easy job, but these guys and girls met the task:

1.) Angelus (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) - Buffy was full of bad guys and villains - vampire duo Spike and Drusilla, rogue slayer Faith, Angel's sire Darla and a new Big Bad every season li...

Best TV Shows You Aren't Watching, Part 4

October 22nd, 2007 11:48am EDT
Big Love
Don't let the patriarchal overtones of HBO's polygamist drama fool you. It's the women who rule the roost in Big Love. Sure, Bill Henrickson (Bill Paxton) has three wives, but he only appears to be in charge of his family and life.

Whether it's his compound past forcing him to deal with his crazy family and cult leader Roman (a fantastic Harry Dean Stanton) or the wives banding together and withholding sex, Bill's always got his hands full, juggling business, family and plenty of lies. The show walks a tightrope and is tenser and more tightly written than most action programs because ...

June 6th, 2007 6:30pm EDT
Luke Wilson
Luke Wilson was left embarrassed when Lance Armstrong visited the set of his directorial debut The Wendell Baker Story - because the cycling champion first saw him shouting at elderly actors Harry Dean Stanton and Seymour Cassell.

Wilson co-directed The Wendell Baker Story with his brother Andrew and was angry with cult actors Stanton and Cassell for not knowing their lines.

But the 35-year-old was unaware Armstrong was on set when he lost his temper. He recalls, "I just thought they hadn't done their homework. I was talking to them the way I talk to a friend, and you forget tha...
