TV used to have rules. On pay cable- your HBOs, your Cinemaxes- anything and everything is fair play.

Want to turn a TV show into softcore porn? Watch a man's skull pop in the grip of a man-mountain? Replace an entire scene's worth of dialogue with nothing but F-bombs?

Go for it. It's pay cable- no one can stop you.

But the other TV stations- the kinder, gentler ones that don't cost a bundle on top of your normal cable bill each month- those are supposed to tone down the violence.

Not anymore. Now, the same network that once brought you "Friends" brings an assembly line of severed faces...

Mo McRae knows how to handle himself amongst heavyweights. He's gone from standing next to Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson in the film Gridiron Gang to joining the One-Niners as Tyler on FX's Sons of Anarchy. But don't let the filmography fool you: he's only a tough guy on-screen - off of it, he's a pleasure to be around. So who's the real Mo McRae?

His story began at a young age. "It started in high school," he said of when he developed his interest in acting. "I played basketball in high school and pretty serious about that [but] we had a pretty good drama department at my high school a...

Something must be going right for Boss: Starz renewed the Kelsey Grammer-led political drama for season two well before next Friday's series premiere. I recently sat down with star Jeff Hephner to find out what's so intriguing about Chicago politics and how his character, Ben Zajac, fits into the picture.

Ben is an idealist, who grew up in Chicago and whose passion for his hometown caused him to leave a lucrative law career for the murky world of public service. His charisma is not scripted; it's courtesy of Hephner, who is as affable and charming as they come. If that's not ende...
