Brendan Fehr Talks Working 'The Night Shift' For NBC
NBC is once again re-entering the medical drama genre with The Night Shift, which details the exploits of an ensemble working the late hours at a San Antonio hospital. One of the members of that ensemble is veteran TV actor Brendan Fehr, who joined BFTV on Monday to talk about how the series aims to set itself apart from your usual medical drama and what he loves about his character, Army medic turned civilian doctor Drew.

What would he say distinguishes Night Shift from others in this well-traveled genre? "What we tried to do was, we have the take of the military, which I think gives it a...

William Sadler
If performance prowess is measured in amount of diverse work created, then actor William Sadler is without question one of the greats. His amazing characters (Bill & Ted’s Grim Reaper anyone?!), memorable movie moments (a little naked martial arts via the opening of "Die Hard 2!") and sheer quantity of notable credits ("The Shawshank Redemption" – need I say more?) has made him one of the most recognizable faces in film and TV for over two decades. Plus having worked with the likes of Renny Harlin, Walter Hill, David Nutter, Bill Condon and even Frank Darabont (three times no less!) has s...

Prom season has begun and there's much speculation about what some TV dramas are planning for their prom-themed episodes.

There's also rumors Rebecca Black will guest star herself. This "Glee" prom episode may turn out to be horrendous for some, but will be memorable to others. Likewise, there have been many TV shows in the past that have provided us with dramatic and romantic prom-themed moments. Here's a countdown of the bes...

Best/Worst Movies Of Katherine Heigl

October 22nd, 2010 2:54pm EDT
Knocked-Up-movie-17.jpg
Katherine Heigl is a well known actress now, but earlier in her career she struggled to find the right films to get involved with. It was really television acting that helped her climb the ranks of popularity, from the sci-fi drama Roswell and then eventually the multiple Emmy award-winning show Grey's Anatomy. It was after gaining a lot of recognition for that show as Izzie Stevens that she got offered a big role in Judd Apatow's new film Knocked Up, and her career just took off from there. Although her newest movie has not been doing exceptionally well, Heigl is still in the spotlight. Sh...

If you've ever been to Comic-Con, the names on this list should come as no surprise. These are the truly dedicated, those who don't hesitate to dress up as their favorite characters, debate for hours on the Internet with faceless strangers over continuity issues, or mail random objects to studio heads when their shows are threatened with cancellation.

Below are just a few of televisions brightest that have inspired some intense fan followings:

August 5th, 2008 12:35pm EDT
Writer Dee Doyle
On behalf of Starpulse.com, I was invited to attend the ABC Family Party on Friday, July 25, at the beautiful Omni San Diego Hotel. The annual comic convention was sold out and full of exciting exclusives, hilarious panels, and brand new information, but I was surprised to find that the ABC party turned out to be my favorite part.

There were several of its best known stars wandering around the terrace, including stars from "Kyle XY" Jaimie Alexander and Matt Dallas, and they were greatly encouraging the press to learn all about their brand new show "Samurai Girl." The lovely star Jami...

CBS Cancels 'Moonlight': What's A Vampire Fan To Do?

May 14th, 2008 1:37pm EDT
Moonlight
CBS just announced its 2008-09 schedule with one glaring absence: "Moonlight." What are fans of the fanged persuasion going to watch now?

There are rumors the CW may step in to rescue the beleaguered series (which has a corporate connection to CBS), but it's a slim chance. It's happened before - "Roswell" aired on the WB and moved to UPN before cancellation and ABC just picked up NBC castoff "Scrubs" - so it could happen again. Oh, and what about "Jericho?" But maybe that's not a good example. It was canceled. Twice.

So what can a "Moonlight" fan do? Many have already poured thei...

Back from the Dead: TV Shows That Survived Cancellation

May 8th, 2008 8:22am EDT
Jericho
Shows are canceled all the time. This time the victim was "Men In Trees," a show that jumped timeslots, disappeared for months at a time, and was finally put out of its misery by ABC. It wasn't exactly a surprise the network canceled it. Who knew it was still on? (Fans can catch the final few episodes when it airs again beginning May 28.)

But what doesn't happen all the time is second chances. Once a television show is canceled (a.k.a. axed, yanked, cut, punted, escorted off the premises, etc.) by its network, it ceases to exist. Normally, that is the case...but not always. After al...

Out Of This World: Top Alien-Centric TV Shows

March 18th, 2008 2:33pm EDT
Farscape
TV has often succeeded with shows that focus on the fish out of water. Whether it's an awkward youth in high school or a maverick attorney/police officer, nothing provides the character depth that new circumstances and surroundings can provide.

In some cases a character's defining trait might be minor (a hair color or accent), but in other situations it becomes more important - like, perhaps, being from another world.

Not counting sci-fi heavyweights such as Star Trek and The X-Files, the following shows provide a rich tapestry of different cultures and societies. That's right, ...

From The Small Screen To The Big One: Many Stars Make The Leap

January 22nd, 2008 2:08pm EST
Will Smith
Television actors must deal with the stigma of being TV stars instead of movie stars. However, some of our favorite movie stars started their acting careers on a TV show. So there is hope for all the celebs who have big-screen aspirations. Here is a look at some of the biggest stars in Hollywood who have made the leap from the small screen to the big screen:

Will Smith

Will Smith should be labeled "The King of the Box Office." His movies often make millions. His latest film "I Am Legend" broke all December opening records at the U.S. box office with a staggering $72.6 million openin...

Power Of The Fans: How Enthusiasts Have Saved Their Favorite Shows

Veronica Mars
Every year TV shows come and go, but you don't have to let your favorite show get canceled without a fight. Several series have been saved through fan campaigns, which often include more than just online petitions. From bottles of Tabasco to an air plane banner and thousands of nuts, see how dedicated fans saved their favorite series from being canceled prematurely:

Roswell

The campaign "Roswell it Hot, Hunger is Not" made over $28,000 for a world famine charity (series star Brendan Fehr's favorite charity). That wasn't the only campaign that saved the ratings-challenged WB series. "...

Is 'Quarterlife' A Cornerstone?

January 3rd, 2008 12:33pm EST
Quarterlife
Marshall Herskovitz and Edward Zwick's "Quarterlife" begins with its main character, Dylan (Bitsie Tulloch), asking, "What is a blog?" and following it up with, "We blog to exist, therefore we -- are idiots." Living up to her answer, Dylan then proceeds to post videos of her friends and roommates online without their consent, as well as videos of herself pondering the existential questions plaguing her mind.

With her introspective narration, Dylan seems to be channeling her inner Angela Chase, but the series' exploration of the minutia of life and love makes it feel more like the cousi...

Supernatural
It's hard to imagine with the multitude of shows on network and cable television and the increasing use of DVRs that there's something good out there that you aren't watching. Surely, the number of hours logged on your TiVo would suggest otherwise.

But on that channel that you don't really watch or sandwiched between megahits CSI and Grey's Anatomy, there's some hidden gems that maybe you haven't given a chance.

One such hidden gem, sandwiched in the most competitive time slot of the week, airs Thursdays on The CW at 9 p.m. The CW was formed partially out of the remnants of The ...
