LeVar Burton
LeVar Burton may be the closest thing that we have to a superhero in the entertainment industry. On camera, he's a talented actor who always impresses, whether he's playing Paul Haley on TNT's Perception or Doc Greene on The Hub's Transformers Rescue Bots. Off camera, he's beloved by generations as the public face of one of TV's best educational programs, Reading Rainbow, which just raised more than six million dollars to help childhood literacy. And he's also one of the nicest people you could ever meet. LeVar took time out of his busy schedule this week to speak with us about all of his c...

Scott Wolf On 'Perception' Season 3: 'I've Had More Fun Than Eve
We'll admit it: when Perception introduced Kate Moretti's ex-husband, we were all ready for a one-dimensional jerk. Then Scott Wolf showed up. And now we find ourselves actually fans of his hard-driving lawyer, Donnie Ryan. So we were thrilled to connect with Scott last week to ask him about Perception's third season, and his own perspective on the Assistant U.S. Attorney viewers seem to either love or hate.

Season two ended with the show's crime-fighting team split up as Dr. Daniel Pierce (Eric McCormack) went to Paris, so how exactly is the band going to get back together? "It becomes ap...

'Perception's' Eric McCormack: 'Some Of Our Strongest' Episodes
TNT's Perception is back to air the final four episodes of its sophomore season, with Dr. Daniel Pierce and his FBI partner Kate Moretti out to close more cases. BFTV spoke last week with series star Eric McCormack, who plays the crazy brilliant Daniel, about the remaining installments and the evolution of Perception.

After all, between the first and second seasons, we see many series find out what works and what doesn't, leading to tweaks and alterations. How has Perception changed over its sophomore cycle? "The biggest change has been introducing Scott Wolf to the show," Eric said, refer...

Their characters might be splitsville on TNT's Perception, but Rachael Leigh Cook and Scott Wolf get along famously. The charismatic pair - who play FBI agent Kate Moretti and her AUSA ex-husband Donnie Ryan on the drama - joined BFTV recently to dish on the season finale, which puts both characters in hot water, and if there's any chance for fresh sparks between the former spouses.

What did Rachael think when she got the news that Scott would be playing her ex? "I was thrilled that he took the job, of course. Please," she gushed. "Like, nobody in town has a better reputation than Scott Wo...

Experience an original twist on the classic crime drama as Eric McCormack stars as an eccentric neuroscience professor whose revealing visions help him uncover what lies beneath conscious emotion.

Though recruited by the FBI for his masterful understanding of the human mind, Daniel's odd and offbeat view makes it difficult for him to get close to anyone. His former student, Agent Kate Moretti (Rachael Leigh Cook), is one of the few people willing to accept Daniel's pec...

What's got Dr. Daniel Pierce looking so worried? I asked actor Eric McCormack, who plays the crime-solving doc on TNT's freshman drama ​Perception​, for some clues to the show's season finale, what it's like playing a paranoid schizophrenic, and where he'd like to see Pierce and company go in the forthcoming Season 2.

"I was so excited," he said of playing the two-part season ender. "We shot the whole thing like a big movie so it was intense. It was so good to have a character that has these various disorders, conspiracy theories, and is suffering from this condition but we've o...
