What Was The Most Important Panel At San Diego Comic-Con

7/18/2015 4:02pm EDT
Pop Culture Hero Coalition Fights Bullying At San Diego Comic-Co
The most important panel at last week's San Diego Comic-Con happened on Sunday morning, when the Pop Culture Hero Coalition hosted its annual panel to combat bullying and promote everyday heroism.

Coalition founders Chase Masterson, Carrie Goldman and Matt Langdon were joined by a roster of contributors including Arrow star John Barrowman, Impractical Jokers' Joe Gatto, NOH8 campaign founders Adam Bouska and Jeff Parsley, United Nations Association President Bettina Hausmann, and Entertainment Weekly senior writer and author Anthony Breznican to share their observations on - and experience...

10 Badass Moments From Last Nights 'Arrow'

'Arrow' Recap: 10 Badass Moments From 'The Offer'
"Arrow's" back from hiatus! And while "The Offer" may not have blazed in with the same DEAR GOD factor as "The Flash's" "Out of Time" last night, that's not to say "The Offer" was a weak outing. Just not one that includes 800 plot twists.

Team Arrow tensions rise, Ra's al Ghul's endgame creeps closer, and Merlyn just kinda dozed on the couch the whole time. Shall we count 'em down?

10. Ra's al Ghul's Sales Pitch!

Oliver Queen becoming the next Ra's al Ghul sounds... well, a little ridiculous. But we've gotta say, Ra's makes a pretty convincing argument.

As Ra's al Ghul 2.0, Oliver could...

'Arrow' Recap: 10 Bromantic Moments From 'The Return'

'Arrow' Recap: 10 Bromantic Moments From 'The Return'
Compared to this week's episode of "The Flash" (which brought out every single major storyline the show's been working towards, then exploded them with a psychic gorilla), our corresponding "Arrow" episode comes off a little subdued.

That's not entirely fair, because "The Return" is nowhere near subdued.

The action was top-notch, and there was plenty of it. Other than a few moments with Laurel, everything was either Oliver kickin' butt with Maseo in the past, or kickin' butt with Thea in the present.

In both cases, Oliver got to strengthen his emotional bonds. He and Thea definitely seem...

'Arrow': 10 Can't-Stop-Sobbing Moments From 'Left Behind'

'Arrow' Recap: 10 Can't-Stop-Sobbing Moments From 'Left Behind'
We kinda figured that this first post-midseason-finale episode of "Arrow" would be an intense one.

Oliver Queen did die, after all. That's cause for some intense emotions to bubble up to the surface of this already very emotional superhero show.

But by no means were we expecting that much emotion. "Left Behind" was like a superhero funeral dirge. The equivalent of a small mountain of superhero-strength Kleenex.

Some serious sad times.

Alright, enough moping around- let's get to this week's list.

10. Diggle is the New Arrow?

It sure seemed that way, didn't it. Crooks are doing crook-li...

John Barrowman Dishes On 'Arrow' Season 3, New Album, And Concer
There's nobody busier than John Barrowman. The multi-talented star recently hosted ABC's summer series Sing Your Face Off, then released his first independent album You Raise Me Up, and starting October 8 we'll be able to enjoy him as a regular on The CW's hit Arrow. If you're keeping score, that means he can wow studio audiences, cover a Demi Lovato song, menace Starling City, make time for his legion of fans, and look fantastic doing all of it.

We caught up with John earlier this week to discuss the reception to his album, his plans for a corresponding concert tour, and what fans can loo...

John Barrowman Dazzles As Host Of ABC's 'Sing Your Face Off'
Who wouldn't want to spend your Saturday night with John Barrowman? Our favorite multi-talented entertainer is showing off a whole other side of himself as the host of ABC's Sing Your Face Off, in which celebrities are transformed into various singing superstars. We couldn't resist catching up with John on Wednesday to ask him about getting to do something completely different, as well as his own forthcoming album.

Those of you who know John from Arrow or Torchwood might be thrown to see him as here, but his background is in theater; he made for an amazing Albin in La Cage aux Folles in 20...

Susanna Thompson Shines In Season 2 Of The CW's 'Arrow'

Susanna Thompson
The CW's Arrow picks up its second season tonight, which means more of the talented Susanna Thompson, the veteran actress behind Moira Queen. During the show's midseason break, BFTV had the opportunity to talk with Susanna about finding out Moira's big secret earlier this season, the other roles that she's loved, and the actors and actresses whose work she enjoys.

Audiences were surprised in November when it was revealed that Moira's daughter Thea (Willa Holland) was fathered not by her late husband Robert, but by the villainous Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman). What was Susanna's reaction ...

John Barrowman stunned fans yesterday when he posted that he and his longtime partner were on their way to California to get married.

The U.S. Supreme Court struck down the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and overturned California's Proposition 8 last week, and the "Torchwood" star and his partner Scott Gill decided to make their union official after nearly 20 years together.

John Barrowman: Master of the Universe

John Barrowman
John Barrowman is best known for his heroics across space and time as Captain Jack Harkness on Doctor Who and Torchwood. But if that's all you know him from, you don't know half of the story. A multi-talented performer for more than 20 years, able to thrill and inspire and even sing, he's well on his way to the top of the acting universe, if he's not already there.

On Arrow, you know him as Malcolm Merlyn, alias "The Dark Archer," a high-ranking member of an enigmatic organization who also happens to be the father of Oliver Queen's best friend Tommy. But, as John points out, to categorize ...

The Geek Closet: Doctor Who Edition!

12/11/2011 3:01pm EST
As we reopen The Geek Closet this month, it's all Doctor Who: I look at the new releases from BBC Books, and check out some out-of-this-world wardrobe!

To make it into The Geek Closet, I'm looking for merch that's different from the usual - something that stands out in a collection. For fans of the Doctor Who universe, the replica wardrobe from the good folks at Abbyshot Clothiers definitely fits that description.

Since 2002, they've been designing clothes modeled after the ones you've seen and pined for from TV, movies, video games and anime. The Doctor Who line is but one of their man...

After waiting more than two years for a Season 4 greenlight, Torchwood stars John Barrowman and Eve Myles are quite giddy to be back on set. On a windy day in April, shooting one of the season's final episodes, they may have actually even reverted into school kids.

Torchwood hits America: Captain Jack and the gang get racy, explosive in Miracle Day

"You're stupid! You're stupid! Stuuuupiiiid!" Barrowman called to Myles, cycling around in a bright red bicycle, while she told stories about Gwen's adventures since Jack left Earth last season. "This is very, very normal," Myles explained. " H...

Captain Jack Isn’t Done With ‘Doctor Who’

Captain Jack Harkness
Russel T. Davies recently revealed in an interview that Steven Moffat, the current “Doctor Who" showrunner, would like nothing more than to bring back everyone's favorite omnisexual immortal, Captain Jack Harkness: “Well, Steven said he'd love to see Jack in Doctor Who. So if Steven says that, Steven will make it happen, I would think. That's not inside information, but I bet one day it will happen. I'd love to see it. It would be marvellous."

What does this mean for “Doctor Who,” or “Torchwood” for that matter, the spinoff series that Jack has helmed for over two seasons? It means that we...

Eva Longoria Parker
Eva Longoria unveiled 'herself' at Madame Tussauds Wax Museum in Las Vegas on Wednesday evening. Eva was accompanied by her husband, NBA basketball star Tony Parker; and the event was held at the "Desperate Housewives" star's Eve Nightclub.

Both Evas attended the event in red dresses, the real one in a short one shoulder dress and tan heels and the wax version in a flowing gown with a giant bow on her shoulder. Her wax figure's dress is the same dress she wore to the 2008 ALMA (American Latino Media Arts) Awards, which she also hosted.

We can't decide who's cuter: Eva Longoria Parker or the white dog posing for the paparazzi!

Eva, wearing a blue floral dress, left Toast restaurant in West Hollywood earlier this week after having lunch with friends. On her way out, Eva petted the dog near the front door and signed autographs.

Actor John Barrowman recently got up close and personal with Eva on the set of "Desperate Housewives." He explained, "She's amazing. I gave her a good grope. We were doing some booty-dancing and I said, 'Show me some of that Latino a*s!' So she did. And then I was like, 'Your boobies are doing alrig...

Former Dr. Who star John Barrowman wants a gay old role on Glee - as one of character Rachel Berry's homosexual dads.

Neither dad has been seen on the show yet and Glee creator Ryan Murphy is considering keeping them away from the camera - but Scottish-born Barrowman has submitted his name as one of the fathers should he change his mind.

He says, "I have no idea if I'll be in it, I met with their casting people and I said I'd love to be in it - I'd be good as one of Rachel's gay dads."

Barrowman has already proved to be a hit with TV audiences - he played the ex-boyfriend of Drea DeMa...
