James Wolk
James Wolk is the best actor whose name you don't know. But you've seen him. You've seen his performances, which have been great from the start and have just kept getting better. Not only is he consistent, but that intangible quality that others aspire to, he has. Whether it's a supporting part in a movie or a leading role on television, he's elevated every project that he's been in. Oh, and he's also one of Hollywood's true gentlemen. Now, in 2013, there's no limit to what he can do.

He's no overnight success, either. He's worked his way to the top of his craft, and the rise began with a ...

February 8th, 2012 6:00pm EST
Happy Endings
ABC's Happy Endings is celebrating Valentine's Day early - and giving us the gift of James Wolk as Max's (Adam Pally) ex-boyfriend, Grant.

Best known as the lead on FOX's critically acclaimed but very short-lived Lone Star, James recently dropped by to talk about what it's like to work on a show that you're a fan of and what he thinks of the holiday.

What attracted you to this character?

I was a fan of the show prior to being on it. I had just finished working on a play and we started to talk to the Happy Endings folks. There was interest from both sides, which was exciting, because ...

January 11th, 2012 3:42pm EST
Happy Endings ABC
Happy Endings producers Jonathan Groff and David Caspe joined their colleagues at Modern Family, Suburgatory and The Middle for a panel of ABC Comedy Show Runners for the Television Critics Association. Pulling Groff and Caspe aside at ABC’s evening party, they revealed a few funny tidbits about upcoming episodes of the show.

“Max gets a boyfriend,” Caspe said. “He runs into the guy he used to date that broke up with him on Valentine’s Day. He runs into him on Valentine’s Day so that should be fun. Dave struggles with a very weird addiction to a certain type of clothing.”

Pop Culture Thanksgiving: 10 Reasons To Give Thanks

November 17th, 2011 1:00pm EST

Thanksgiving is a time to reunite with families and be grateful for the good fortune and of course, maul your fellow man for a ridiculous deal on a plasma television. As a lover of pop culture, I’d like to look back on the gems of entertainment that I’m thankful for from 2011.

Beyonce’s Pregnancy

Just when we thought singer Beyonce couldn't be any fiercer, she wordlessly and fabulously revealed her pregnancy at the 2011 Video Music Awards. Since the announcement and the bizarre rumors surrounding the validity of her bump, Beyonce continues to push the fashion envelope and has establi...

TV Book Club Q&A: Danielle Turchiano Talks A 'Pop Culture' Life

November 12th, 2011 11:20am EST
Danielle Turchiano
Danielle Turchiano has a dream job: she turned her love of TV into a career in production and later journalism. Then she decided to share her stories with us.

In her second book, appropriately titled My Life, Made Possible By Pop Culture, Danielle speaks frankly about her passion for the small screen and how it has influenced her relationships over the years.

I've gotten to know Danielle fairly well as our careers have crossed paths, and have found her to be one of the most engaging fellow journalists I've gotten to spend time with. I couldn't resist asking her about her newest book and h...

Fall TV Progress Report: Grading 10 New And Returning Shows

October 14th, 2011 1:00pm EDT
dennings, behrs
Fall is one of my favorite times of year, and it’s not because of everything from, lattes to cakes, is pumpkin-flavored and stores are stuffed with caramel apples. It’s because there is a fresh, shiny crop of new and returning shows to devour. Most shows are at least three episodes in, so it’s time to grade 10 new and returning shows to gauge their progress in this burgeoning season.

NEW SHOWS

“2 Broke Girls” CBS Mondays 8:30 P.M. EST

“2 Broke Girls” is a snappy, odd couple sitcom about Max (“Thor’s” Kat Dennings), an uber-sarcastic and cynical waitress who takes in Caroline (Bet...

'Supernatural' Recap: There's A Devil On Sam's Shoulder

October 1st, 2011 11:30am EDT

Just in case last week’s episode didn’t completely destroy you, our favorite show returned to scrub your heart over a cheese grater and give your soul a few gut-punches with an episode jam-packed with “Supernatural’s” unique brand of campy special effects and life-ruining angst. “Hello Cruel World” picked up right where the premiere left off: Sam was in a secluded part of the demonic laboratory succumbing to all-too real hallucinations of Lucifer, and Castiel’s vessel was just taken over by those sinister Leviathans that tossed Dean and Bobby around like a couple of hot potatoes.

TV Cancellations, Renewals And Shocks, Oh My!

May 14th, 2011 3:04pm EDT
The Event
They’re goin’ down like flies.

This week, FOX tear-gassed its on-the-bubble shows, and NBC and ABC have taken similar approaches. Either pilot season has produced some very promising material, or the networks are getting violent. Either way, there are a lot of casualties.

Let’s start with the good news: Among shows in trouble, NBC’s ‘Chuck’ has been renewed for one more season, but the caveat is that it’s just one more season, and a 13-episode one at that. Still, it’ll provide plenty of closure for fans. NBC’s ‘Parenthood’ was also granted another wish from the network’s genie, with i...
