Anna Gunn On 'Gracepoint': 'It's Quite Hard To Drop It Sometimes'

Anna Gunn On 'Gracepoint': 'It's Quite Hard To Drop It Sometimes
Anna Gunn knows good drama; she starred on HBO's Deadwood and recently won an Emmy for her work on AMC's Breaking Bad. Yet her starring role on FOX's Gracepoint is more than just good drama. Anna is impressive in the role of Ellie Miller, the steady and opposite to David Tennant's aggressive Emmett Carver as they investigate a child's murder.

And for the actress, it was something more than just another complex character. Anna spoke with us last week about her thorough preparation for her Gracepoint duties and how the series was slightly hard for her to shake.

"I think that it can strike p...

Actor Undercover: Meet 'Scandal's' Double Agent Brian Letscher

Actor Undercover: Meet 'Scandal's' Double Agent Brian Letscher
Don't worry, Brian Letscher's only pretending to be lethal. As Secret Service agent slash B613 operative Tom Larsen on Scandal, the actor's complicit in the death of President Grant's son Jerry, tried to kill former boss Jake Ballard (Scott Foley), and is on the hot seat with the nefarious Rowan Pope (Joe Morton). And tomorrow, he might just add to his body count with a juicy new role in NBC's supernatural thriller Grimm.

But in real life, he's the nicest guy you could ever hope to meet. We caught up with Brian last week to discuss how much street cred he gets from playing the bad guy, wha...

'Top Gear' (USA) Season Finale Recap: 'Appalachian Trail' - End Of The Road?

'Top Gear' (USA) Season Finale Recap: 'Appalachian Trail' - End
Every journey has a destination, and so it is that season four of Top Gear is finally coming to an end. But before we say goodbye to Adam Ferrara, Tanner Foust and Rutledge Wood, we get to join them for one last ride, and it's a big one: trying to drive a portion of the famous Appalachian Trail in a mere 24 hours. Driving all day without crashing or dying is hard for normal people - for these three guys, it might be darn near impossible.

After Adam gives us the rundown on the Applachian Trail (and we laugh at the idea of these guys hiking anywhere), it's time to meet the rides. Tanner's br...

'The Voice' Recap: Who Did Gwen Stefani Choose To Save?
We've reached the end of another phase of competition on The Voice. Just six more battles remain, and Gwen Stefani will have to choose one of the six losing artists to add to her squad. Who will be the lucky singer to get a second chance and which five will go home for good? Here's what happened on Tuesday night.

Team Pharrell: Ricky Manning (turned 2 chairs in blind auditions) vs. Brittany Butler (2 chairs), "On Broadway"
Pharrell has matched these two because one's R&B, one's jazzy, and they're both "scary" - so here's a jazzy tune about the difficulties of making it in showbiz. That's f...

Michael Trucco Books Intriguing Guest Role On 'Scandal'
Everyone's favorite ex-significant other is coming to Washington, D.C. next month.

Michael Trucco, who's played (deep breath) Sarah Shahi's ex-husband on Fairly Legal (pictured above) and before that Stana Katic's eventually ex-boyfriend in season two of Castle, and also recently guest-starred as Meghan Ory's former significant other in an episode of CBS's short-lived Intelligence, can add another ex to his list now that he's been cast in a November episode of Scandal.

Per a report from TVLine, Trucco has been cast as the previously referenced but never-before-seen abusive ex-husband of A...

'Top Gear' Season Finale Preview: Racing The Appalachian Trail
It feels like we've just gotten started, but in reality History's Top Gear is finishing its fourth season tonight. It all comes down to one last road trip for Adam Ferrara, Tanner Foust and Rutledge Wood, as they're tasked with driving a road version of the infamous Appalachian Trail in 24 hours. We say "infamous" because the actual Appalachian Trail runs from Maine to Georgia and spans more than 2,000 miles.

Can the guys find enough ways to speed up their trip and get to the finish line in time? Will they manage to arrive in one piece, or end up hurting themselves - or each other - in the...

'The Voice' Recap: Which Coach Has The Only Steal Left?
We're now halfway through the first set of battles on The Voice, with Monday having brought us six more head-to-head matchups and three more steals as Blake Shelton informs Gwen Stefani and Pharrell Williams that to win the competition, one must upset Adam Levine. On that moment of Zen, here's what went down in part three of the battles.

Team Adam: Damien (turned 4 chairs in blind auditions) vs. Kelli Douglas (3 chairs), "Knock On Wood"
Adam wants to see how these two close friends do when they're playing against each other. But forget the friendship issue, both of them are struggling with...

'The Good Wife' Recap And Review: 'Shiny Objects' - Hackers, Pen
With it having been established that Alicia will run for Cook County State's Attorney, it's time for The Good Wife to get her back into the courtroom. The show does that with a flourish, bringing back some familiar faces to give her some stiff competition, while Diane tries to deal when a hacker gets into the Florrick/Agos/Lockhart computers and the political process drives another wedge into the Florrick marriage.

Elsbeth Tascioni (Carrie Preston) is back and still as quirky as ever, which is driving her co-counsel Rayna Hecht (Jill Hennessy) a little crazy. Especially when the company t...

'Transporter: The Series' Recap And Review: 'Dead Drop' - The Man Behind The Curtain

'Transporter: The Series' Recap And Review: 'Dead Drop' - The Ma
The sophomore (sort of) outing of Transporter: The Series sends Frank Stateside to deal with a figure from his past who, naturally, needs his old acquaintance to save the day. You may have heard this plot before, but when it includes our first look behind the curtain at what shaped Frank Martin, plus some entertaining setpieces along the way, one can't seriously argue with traversing some familiar territory.

There's a street race going on in Philadelphia, and not even a phone call from Dieter can derail Frank's best Fast & Furious impression. But of course, this isn't just a joyride; there...
