Intellectual Rocker Wes Cage Prepares To Release First Solo Albu
In 2014, Wes Cage is blazing his own trail. The musician and actor is preparing his very first solo album as we speak, striving to cement his unique identity as an artist. He's also a devoted husband and family man - Wes and his wife Danielle are expecting their first child - and a little bit spiritual, too. BFTV connected with Wes to get his take on music and on life before his new music hits our ears later this year.

"Music is my passion, along with thespian arts," he told us. "And I do it in order to empower others, just like music empowered me. It's really a gift." And he wants to disp...

Laura McCreary Takes Us Inside The 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' Writers
Brooklyn Nine-Nine was a surprise hit for FOX this past season, including raking in two Golden Globe Awards. So what's it like behind the scenes at the fictional 99th Precinct? BFTV sat down with writer Laura McCreary to get some insight into the show's explosion of popularity and how all the laughs come together.

"It's definitely exciting," Laura said of Brooklyn Nine-Nine's success so far. "We had no idea. Obviously FOX is always behind the show, and there was great promotion to start, but we really had no idea if people were watching, how the momentum was doing."

She called working in ...

Meet The 'Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey' Editing Team
We continue our look inside the world of FOX's Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey by chatting with editors Eric Lea and John Duffy, to discuss how they and their fellow editors pieced together this epic miniseries. Needless to say, it was no small work order, so how did they divide up the episodes?

"On this show, shows were assigned initially to each editor. We each had sort of our allocation of shows," Eric explained. "But what made it so different and unique is that all 13 episodes of Cosmos were being shot and edited simultaneously over about 15 months, whereas [with] a normal TV show, you'd s...

Delaine Moore: Meet The Real Woman Behind 'Secret Sex Life Of A
When you're watching Lifetime's The Secret Sex Life of a Single Mom tonight, you might not know that it's based on a true story. There is a real Delaine - and her name is Delaine Moore, author, columnist and life coach. BFTV had the pleasure to talk with Delaine on Thursday to discuss the transition from her memoir to movie, and what it was like to have people bringing to life her deeply personal story.

"My first reaction, it was like pinch me, definitely," she told us. "But that being said, I'm the one who had actually come up with the idea or had thought that my material would translate ...

BFTV connected with Warren on Friday to discuss his recently busy schedule.

Ashley Jones Dishes On 'Secret Sex Life Of A Single Mom'
Lifetime's newest original movie The Secret Sex Life of a Single Mom premieres tonight, with a title and trailer that have already generated plenty of buzz. But what's hype and what's the film really about? To find out, BFTV checked in with star and producer Ashley Jones, who plays titular single mom Delaine Morris, the character based on the real-life Delaine Moore.

How did she wind up attached to this particular project? "A lot of the people who have seen the trailer are asking me the same thing. The trailer looks much more risque than anyone who knows me believes I am," she laughed. "I ...

Lacey Chabert Shines In Hallmark Movie Channel's 'The Color Of R
Last time we talked to Lacey Chabert, she was getting stuck on an airplane. Her latest movie is a much happier experience. In The Color of Rain, she plays Gina Kell, who loses her husband to cancer but forges an unlikely bond with another parent, Michael Spehn (played by Motive's Warren Christie), who's similarly dealing with the death of his wife. Based on a true story, The Color of Rain is a project close to Lacey's heart, and so BFTV reconnected with her to discuss it prior to tomorrow's premiere.

What made it strike a chord with her? "I read the book, actually, before I read the script...

Alex Carter Discusses 'The Sex Life Of A Single Mom'
Catherine Willows might be a bit jealous. Alex Carter - best known as Catherine's love interest Detective Lou Vartann on CSI: Crime Scene Investigation - is about to take on a decidedly different character in the Lifetime original movie The Secret Sex Life of a Single Mom.

He plays "The Duke," a mysterious man who intrigues titular divorcee Delaine Morris (played by True Blood's Ashley Jones) when they meet online. Alex recently joined BFTV to chat about the movie, and his long history as a dependable character actor we always enjoy seeing on TV.

"I'd worked on a movie that [executive pro...

John Barrowman Dazzles As Host Of ABC's 'Sing Your Face Off'
Who wouldn't want to spend your Saturday night with John Barrowman? Our favorite multi-talented entertainer is showing off a whole other side of himself as the host of ABC's Sing Your Face Off, in which celebrities are transformed into various singing superstars. We couldn't resist catching up with John on Wednesday to ask him about getting to do something completely different, as well as his own forthcoming album.

Those of you who know John from Arrow or Torchwood might be thrown to see him as here, but his background is in theater; he made for an amazing Albin in La Cage aux Folles in 20...

Scott Gamzon: Meet The Man Who Pieces Together 'Sleepy Hollow'

May 29th, 2014 2:09pm EDT
Sleepy Hollow
If you like the distinct look of Sleepy Hollow, one of the many folks you can thank for that is Scott Gamzon, one of the editors who helps piece FOX's supernatural action-drama together. Scott spoke with BFTV recently to discuss his favorite sequence that he's put together, and the art of editing.

What would he consider his Sleepy Hollow highlight? "There's an episode called 'Necromancer,' where the Headless Horseman was captured and they're figuring out a way to interrogate him. They use Andy as a necromancer to basically channel the voice of Headless," Scott told us. "We learn in that ep...
