'Strike Back': 6 Things Fans Should Watch Before Cinemax Season 4

'Strike Back': 6 Things Fans Should Watch Before Cinemax Season
On Fridays last August, we were glued to our TVs watching the explosive third season of Strike Back. This year, though, Section 20 is on a break - and we're in serious withdrawal. Even with the brand-new video just released by Cinemax.)

What's a fan to do if you've seen every episode? If you've already seen Strike Back: Origins and read the Chris Ryan novel it was based on? Never fear - there's hope for your Scott and Stonebridge fix. We've been watching a lot of film recently, and here's our list of the six projects starring either Sullivan Stapleton or Philip Winchester that Strike Back ...

Philip Winchester And 23 More Awesome '24' Guest Stars

July 14th, 2014 12:04pm EDT
24
One of the most awesome things about 24: Live Another Day is Philip Winchester.

For the last two episodes, the Strike Back star has been serving one of President James Heller's military advisors, and we're loving it. For one, as anyone who's seen the Cinemax show knows, Winchester is one of the most criminally underrated actors out there at the moment. He makes the entire political side of the story cooler just by being there to argue about threat levels and nuclear superiority, and he's one of the rare actors who can make all that jargon actually interesting to hear.

Secondly, his appear...

Preview Tonight's 'Strike Back' Season 3 Finale!

October 18th, 2013 12:04pm EDT
Strike Back
Sadly, tonight marks the end of Season 3 of Strike Back. The Cinemax action-adventure series draws to a close this evening with a bang - or more like several bangs - as plenty of questions remain unanswered.

Will Scott (Sullivan Stapleton) and Stonebridge (Philip Winchester) be able to stop Al-Zuhari's plan before it's too late? Can Stonebridge get through the action in one piece? Will the questionable measures Section 20 must consider as time runs out cause a rift they can't recover from? Will Locke (Robson Green) survive so that we can keep enjoying his addition to the unit, or will he s...

We're getting down to the wire on Strike Back. With just two episodes left, the men and women of Section 20 are hot on the trail of terrorists - and this week's installment features the bang-up action sequence on a train that we've been telling you to watch out for all season.

'Strike Back' Star Philip Winchester Cast In 'Undrafted'

October 3rd, 2013 4:40pm EDT
Strike Back
He's one of our favorite action heroes on Strike Back - but now Philip Winchester is taking on a very different role, as he's landed a part in the independent feature film Undrafted.

Philip, who plays Michael Stonebridge in the Cinemax series, will appear as a baseball player in the flick, which is the directorial debut of actor Joe Mazzello (The Pacific, The Social Network).

Mazzello also penned the script, bringing to the screen the story of his brother, a successful college baseball player who - as the title implies - wasn't drafted into the major leagues. Suddenly, an intramural baseb...

'Strike Back': Is This TV's Best Action-Adventure Series? Watch Exclusive Video!

August 9th, 2013 12:27pm EDT
Strike Back
If you were to look up the definition of the phrase "TV action series," you should see a picture from Strike Back.

The Cinemax drama has all the right ingredients for a production that'd make Michael Bay green with envy. Continuing on from a successful British first season, which was itself based on a sharply written novel by Chris Ryan, it is a veritable buffet for the action-adventure crowd. Over two seasons, there have been various exotic locations, lots of big weapons, hails of gunfire, plenty of explosions, several fistfights, and numerous deaths in the line of duty. This year, there'...
