Taraji P. Henson And 'Person Of Interest' Cast Give Insight On Season 3

November 20th, 2013 2:54am EST
'Person Of Interest' Cast
The 'POI' cast appeared more subdued when I interviewed them at NYCC this year, contrasted with last year. There were hints in their interactions with each other and their responses to questions which hinted at a coming change. While last year, Taraji P. Henson and Kevin Chapman hopped onto the red carpet and traveled between tables like two Mardi Gras revelers, this year they appeared quieter. Although I can guess why, I still appreciated sitting down with the stars of my favorite TV show.

I've enjoyed Taraji P. Henson's portrayal since day one. I loved when CBS increased her interaction ...

Sarah Shahi
Sarah Shahi attended the "Bullet To The Head" New York City premiere earlier this week looking sexy in a curve-revealing lavender dress.

In October the former "Fairly Legal" star was named Maxim magazine's hottest girl on TV, and we can see why. She has also starred on the NBC series "Chicago Fire."

"Bullet to the Head" centers on a hitman (Sylvester Stallone) and a New York cop who team up to get revenge on the killers who murdered their partners. Along the way they uncover a lucrative conspiracy in New Orleans. It opens in theaters this weekend.

'Fairly Legal' Star Sarah Shahi Tops Maxim's 'TVs Hottest Girls' List

Former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader turned actress Sarah Shahi sizzles in her spread for Maxim magazine's October "TV's Hottest Girls" issue.

The gorgeous 32-year-old was named TV's Sexiest Star for her role on the USA Newtork's drama Fairly Legal.

The versatile actress got her start in Old School in a scene where she had to do a certain something with a cucumber. She also got to see Will Ferrell naked.

" Oh, I got to see Will in all his naked, hairy glory," she says. "Todd Phillips, the director, told us that Will was really nervous, so we shouldn’t look at him. But my eyes were drawn to ...

Why USA Shouldn't Burst 'Fairly Legal's' Bubble

September 14th, 2012 11:15am EDT
Fairly Legal
Given its success with original series, USA greenlit quite a few not so long ago - and now, there's not room for all of them. Reports suggest that four of the cable net's more recent shows are in danger of cancellation: Fairly Legal, Necessary Roughness, Common Law and Political Animals.

Of the four, it's Fairly Legal that it would be the biggest shame to lose. It's a not that uncommon case of a series that didn't find itself right away, and this one is on the verge of doing so. While it's understandable how it ended up on the bubble, the show has plenty of potential and a charismati...

Michael Trucco: 'Fairly Legal's' Secret Weapon

March 16th, 2012 2:00pm EDT
Michael Trucco
USA's Fairly Legal returns for its second season tonight with one big ace up its sleeve: co-star Michael Trucco.

When is a series regular a secret weapon? When he's doing fantastic work and still playing second chair. Yes, Fairly Legal belongs to the character of Kate Reed (Sarah Shahi), but there's something about her not quite ex-husband that sticks.

As played by Trucco, Justin Patrick is that hard-working, dedicated Assistant District Attorney that you'd want fighting for you in court, and he's also the voice of reason in his complicated relationship with Kate. In a conventional legal ...

'Fairly Legal' Star Sarah Shahi Calls Paris Hilton A 'Horrible Excuse For A Human Being'

Paris Hilton, Sarah Shahi inset
Fairly Legal star Sarah Shahi had a few choice words for Paris Hilton over the weekend. Apparently the actress had a run-in with the socialite and was nearly run over after Paris didn't see her and then ran a stop sign.

Sarah took to her Twitter account on Friday and Saturday to call out the hotel heiress over her skills behind the wheel, and let us know how she really feels.

"Paris Hilton- worst driver ever. Almost hit me, then ran a stop sign.what if there was a kid around that corner, you dumb b*tch," she Tweeted.

Afterward in a series of follow-up Tweets, Sarah said things like, "Par...

'Fairly Legal' 1.10 'Bridges' Review

March 24th, 2011 11:05pm EDT
Fairly Legal
The Fairly Legal season finale is upon us. It ends up being a fair reflection of the entire first season: while there are some highlights, ultimately, it ends up being merely a passable diversion.

Kate is brought to the Croatian consulate to handle a custody dispute. Veronica's soon-to-be adoptive father Pete (that's Scott Holroyd, aka Chuck's evil CIA agent Justin Sullivan) wants to keep the daughter that isn't biologically his from being taken back to Croatia by his mother-in-law. The frustrated father and the protective mother-in-law eventually realize that they want the same thin...

'Fairly Legal' 1.09 'My Best Friend's Prenup' Review

March 17th, 2011 11:02pm EDT
Fairly Legal
I've heard it said that you can learn a lot about someone from their friends. Well, this week we meet one of Kate's friends, Julie (Brittany Ishibashi), who's about to get married. Lauren is working on the prenuptual agreement with Julie's father Joseph (Clyde Kusatsu), who's more concerned with protecting his family business from Julie's husband-to-be Eric (David Alpay) than his daughter's happiness. Yes, you've pretty much heard this story before.

The show tries to throw a wrench in there by revealing that Eric's supposedly dead mother isn't really dead, but it doesn't really work...

'Fairly Legal' 1.08 'Ultravinyl' Review

March 11th, 2011 10:29am EST
Fairly Legal
One way to make a good show? Bring a great guest star.

Chris Vance can turn up on my TV anytime he likes. I liked him as Mason Gilroy on Burn Notice (anyone ever notice how these USA shows tend to share guest actors?), loved him even more as Dr. Jack Gallagher in the short-lived Mental, and am glad to see him in this week's Fairly Legal as Paul Shelton, a former rock star who needs Kate to help him mediate a business deal with his two old bandmates. Unfortunately, Mack and Sherry are married, raising a family, and want nothing to do with him. As if that's not harsh enough, he's dying.

'Fairly Legal' 1.04 'Bo Me Once' Review

February 11th, 2011 7:20am EST
Fairly Legal
Last week's Fairly Legal was another so-so episode in my book, so I was curious to see if the show would rebound this week. One way to do that is to open the episode with the always amazing Michael Trucco. Justin's being called in on his off Sunday, which he'd hoped to be spending with Kate, who's been roped into a case between a TV chef named Bo (Warehouse 13's Eddie McClintock) and the company manufacturing his barbecue sauce. Great, five minutes in and I'm feeling a Famous Dave's craving coming on.

Bringing the two arguing parties together, Kate gets them talking and seems to iron ...

'Fairly Legal' 1.03 'Benched' Review

February 3rd, 2011 11:02pm EST
Fairly Legal
After last week's pretty good episode, I had high hopes for this week's Fairly Legal, which sees Kate trying to settle things between a difficult high school football coach (Dean Norris) and angry parents who dislike his controversial treatment of their children. This plot makes me think of deposed Texas Tech football coach Mike Leach, but we don't have time to completely mirror Leach's complicated story (thankfully). Instead, we're left with a fairly light portrayal of a question that comes up a lot if you follow high school or college football: is the coach too tough, or are the kid...

'Fairly Legal' 1.02 'Priceless' Review

January 27th, 2011 11:03pm EST
Fairly Legal
I had high hopes for the second episode of Fairly Legal based on the guest cast alone. "Priceless" features Paul Schulze as a man who wrongfully spent more than two decades in prison. Anyone who saw Schulze's run as Ryan Chappelle on 24, or even his guest appearances on shows like Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles or Standoff, to name two of my favorites, knows that he's turned in some great performances.

Justin personally hands Kate her next case: Steve (Schulze) has spent twenty-two years behind bars only to be found innocent, and now she has to mediate a settlement between hi...

'Fairly Legal' 1.01 'Pilot' Review

January 20th, 2011 11:18pm EST
Fairly Legal
I want to like Fairly Legal more than I do.

There's a lot to love about USA Network's newest original series, beginning with Sarah Shahi, who proves that her outstanding performance as the cynical recovering alcoholic Dani Reese on NBC's late-but-still missed Life wasn't a fluke. As lawyer turned mediator Kate Reed, Shahi has plenty of charm, a winning smile and an earnestness that's infectious. Kate is almost the complete opposite of Reese - except for maybe the father issues - and Shahi plays both roles equally well, proving that it's about time someone gave her a series of her ow...

'Fairly Legal' 1.01 'Pilot' Advance Review

January 13th, 2011 4:45pm EST
Fairly Legal
All of USA Network's series share one quality: distinctive lead characters who become media personalities in their own right. For example, there's no doubt that while White Collar is a great ensemble piece, it's Matt Bomer's Neal Caffrey who gets most of the attention and promotional exposure. So it is that the network's newest series, Fairly Legal, is resting on the shoulders of Sarah Shahi. If you're one of those people still annoyed at NBC for cancelling Life, you know that she's more than deserving of her own series. She is a very talented actress, and though she doesn't get to s...

Casting Call: Who Should Be The 'New Wonder Woman'

October 12th, 2010 9:00am EDT
The Next Wonder Woman
Any time a movie or TV comic book adaptation is announced, the internet becomes instantly abuzz with casting ideas, and when it comes to a character as iconic as Princess Diana of Themiscyra, those opinions are STRONG!

David E. Kelley’s new "Wonder Woman" show (presumably designed to fill the gap Clark Kent will leave when he finally becomes Superman at the end of this final season of "Smallville") is the latest attempt to bring live action resurrection to comics’ pre-eminent superheroine. So who can fill the red and white boots so memorably worn by Lynda Carter in the 1970s? Here are a fe...
