TCA Buzz: FOX Moving Forward With 'Prison Break' And '24'
It's official: FOX is moving forward with its plans to resurrect more cancelled TV shows, formally ordering a new Prison Break "event series" and a pilot for a new 24 that won't star Kiefer Sutherland. The network made both announcements Friday at the Television Critics Association press tour.

Dominic Purcell and Wentworth Miller (pictured above) will reprise their roles as Lincoln Burrows and Michael Scofield in the new Prison Break, so fans can start theorizing as to how Michael apparently didn't die at the end of post-series TV-movie The Final Break.

No other cast members are confirmed...

Fox Execs Confirm Talks Of Bringing Back 'The X-Files'
Following the success of bringing back hit series "24" for a 12-episode run last spring, executives at the Fox network are now considering resurrecting a pair of shows from the TV graveyard: 90s paranormal series "The X-Files" and serial drama Prison Break, which ran from 2005-2009.

"I think it's been reported and it's true that we've had some conversations on 'X-Files,'" Newman said. "W...

Wentworth Miller
Prison Break star Wentworth Miller has come out as a gay man via a letter to a Russian film festival director.

The actor was recently invited to attend the St. Petersburg International Film Festival, but declined the invitation because of Russia's highly-criticized anti-gay laws.

The 41-year-old wrote an open letter to festival director Maria Averbakh, saying he'd love to attend, but because of the way gays are treated there he has no future plans to travel there.

"Thank you for your kind invitation. As someone who has enjoyed visiting Russia in the past and can also claim a degree of Ru...

The CW is hoping to startle you with Cult, its new series about a TV show that's garnering a loyal - and potentially deadly - audience. It's a concept that demands an intimidating actor at its Robert Knepper, who's best known for making viewers more than a little uncomfortable as Theodore "T-Bag" Bagwell on Prison Break.

Knepper plays a dual role on Cult; he's actor Roger Reeves, but Roger's job is playing a cult leader named Billy Grimm on th...

Actress Annalynne McCord has put to rest rumors her on/off romance with Kellan Lutz is back on - she has been photographed kissing former Prison Break star Dominic Purcell.

The 90210 beauty split from Twilight hunk Lutz in October after two years together, and the couple sparked speculation of a reconciliation in April when they were snapped together in Vancouver, Canada.

Mike Royce, Beckett’s former mentor returned last night on Castle! For those who had forgotten, in Royce’s last episode, he turned out to be a dirty cop that took bribes and impeded Beckett’s progress on a case. She was also in love with him, so his betrayal was especially harsh. Royce drags himself across pavement while an ominous man stalks him with a gun and a silencer. The man shoots Royce.

Lane Garrison
Lane Garrison is urging partygoers to think twice before driving drunk, because the prison sentence he received after a passenger in his vehicle was killed when he crashed was his "worst nightmare."

The former "Prison Break" star was jailed for two years in 2007 after pleading guilty to vehicular manslaughter and driving under the influence (DUI) following a 2006 accident which claimed the life of a 17 year old.

He regained his freedom in 2009, but insists he will be scarred for life after serving 22 months behind bars.

Aussie actor Liam Mcintyre has been picked to replace cancer-stricken Andy Whitfield as the new TV "Spartacus."

TV executives initially considered calling off the show due to Whitfield's health setback, but then decided to recast the lead role of gladiator slave Spartacus.

"Prison Break" star Wentworth Miller was an early choice but now McIntyre has been announced as the new lead...

Demi Lovato's new album "Here We Go Again" premiered at number one on the Billboard charts a few weeks ago. At just 16, where does she go from here? She joined us to discuss where she sees her career going and who she admires in the music industry.

Land of the Lost
I'm ashamed to say I still haven't gotten a chance to see "Terminator Salvation," but it's my top priority to see it this week. I also need to get out and see "Drag Me to Hell," because I continue to hear nothing but good things about it.

This week is a big week for comedies, with four premiering. We have "Land of the Lost," "Away We Go," "The Hangover," and "My Life in Ruins." I'm very excited because I will be seeing an advanced screening of "The Hangover." I have high hopes that it will be very funny, but I'll let you know what I think after I see it.

TV Wish List for 2009

12/29/2008 12:37pm EST
True Blood
It is time to bid farewell to the television of 2008 and welcome 2009 with open arms, but let it be with a sweet, friendly warning. TV viewers are fickle. One day we'll love your show, and the next we'll hate it. Sometimes all you have to do is steer a little off course, or introduce an irritating character, and then we abandon you to the cold. Yet TV viewers can be fiercely loyal, sticking to a show through seasons of awful dialogue just because we remember when it was great. The Writer's Strike put a real damper on new shows and old shows alike this year, but 2009 has a clean new slate to...

Mama Scofield Enters The Picture On 'Prison Break'

12/23/2008 10:58am EST
Prison Break
It's fall finale time on "Prison Break," folks. Thus far, the season has been chock full of revelations, lies, betrayals, plot twists (both conceivable and far out) and of course, deaths. Plenty of deaths. Did the body count continue to climb in this final episode of 2008? Have we been provided with some answers, or just more questions? Most importantly, has T-Bag's facial hair changed for the third episode in a row?

Winter TV Watch: Catch Up On Some Current Favorites

12/22/2008 9:18am EST
Big Love
Television networks are so fixated on ratings that there is usually a dead period through the holiday season up to mid-January. Now is the perfect time to try something new that you may have skipped out on in the past.

In spite of airing on the CW, Supernatural has more in common with long-gone shows like Buffy The Vampire Slayer than the network's current rich girl programming. In the beginning of "Supernatural" Sam and Dean Winchester were searching for their missing father and the demon that killed their mom. Like Prison Break, the major arc was laid out from the start. But the s...

Spiritual Visions And Company Men On 'Prison Break'

Prison Break
As we head towards the fall finale, things on "Prison Break" continue to heat up. Allegiances may have shifted (again), but Scylla remains the focus of nearly everyone's attention. When last we left our old friends, Michael (Wentworth Miller) had been taken in by The Company, and The General (Leon Russom) had struck a "bargain" (word of the day, right Pee-Wee?) with Lincoln (Dominic Purcell). The deal? If Lincoln and his friends are able to successfully return Scylla to The General, Big G will remove that nasty tumor from Michael's brain. Seems reasonable, right? Let's see if everyone...

The Chaos Continues On 'Prison Break'

12/9/2008 10:54am EST
Prison Break
Say what you will about "Prison Break," but if there is one thing that it has not been these past few weeks, it's predictable. While the series has always been prone to wild plot twists, quadruple-crosses and plenty of violence, things have really elevated to another level ever since the gang got the best of The General (Leon Russom) a few episodes ago.

Word of the Day: Gas

Things pick up right where they left off last week, with Self (Michael Rapaport) needing a final chip for Scylla, a chip that Michael (Wentworth Miller) possesses. Last week Michael invited Self to "come and...
