RJ Mitte: After 'Breaking Bad,' A Great Example In Hollywood
We know and love RJ Mitte from his role as Walter White, Jr. on Breaking Bad. What you might not know is how remarkable of a person he is, both as an actor and as a representative of the disabled community in Hollywood. We had the pleasure of speaking to RJ last week to discuss building his career after Breaking Bad and how he's doing his part off-screen to make the world a better place.

How do you follow up starring in what's widely considered to be one of the best TV series of all time? "The biggest thing is to keep working. Work will beget more work," he told us. "What's lucky is Breaki...

The lovely and multi-talented Carrie Preston has accomplished a lot since she first took on the role of Arlene Fowler on HBO's True Blood. She's directed feature films, won an Emmy Award for her work on The Good Wife, and created some memorable characters. We checked in with Carrie last week to talk about how True Blood has shaped her enviable career and what could possibly happen next.

When we connected, she'd just come back from appearing with her cast at San Diego Comic-Con, where True Blood once again commanded a huge audience. "I'd never been. It was a great way to go in and go out," ...

Emma Kate Debuts "Neon Yellow Hearts," Chats About Her Upcoming
You can't help but want to dance and sing along when you hear Emma Kate's latest single, "Neon Yellow Hearts," a nostalgic song about her high school group's last night together. I recently had the opportunity to speak with the singer-songwriter about her music and upcoming EP prior to last night's showcase at The Bitter End in New York City.

How did you get your start in music?

I've been singing my whole life in school, in barber shop quartets and in a cappella groups, but in tenth grade I had the opportunity of meeting singer-songwriter Matt White through a mutual friend who had gone to...

'Guardians Of The Galaxy': Meet Screenwriter Nicole Perlman
Everyone's talking about Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, but do you know who wrote it? That'd be two people: director James Gunn and the woman it all began with, Nicole Perlman, who joined us during last week's San Diego Comic-Con to discuss exactly how one puts together a Marvel blockbuster and what it's been like for her to have her name associated with a truly major motion picture.

"I don't think when I first started that I had any idea that the project was actually going to get made," she told us. "I think it was very much a long shot. I was in the Marvel writing program, and they ga...

'Graceland's' Jamie Gray Hyder: Rest Of Season 2 Is 'A Whirlwind
Jamie Gray Hyder is keeping things interesting on Graceland. The True Blood actress plays Lucia Solano, the sister of Carlito Solano (Erik Valdez) and daughter of the head of the Solano drug cartel, who doesn't know that Johnny (Manny Montana) is actually an undercover agent. We caught up with Jamie last Wednesday to talk about her Graceland experience and how it stacks up against playing a werewolf.

"What I love about this part - and something that's super important to me - is to make her a real person and not a caricature of herself," she told us. "[Lucia]'s got such a cool, complicated ...

Marin Ireland: Meet 'The Divide's' Dynamic Leading Lady
Last week, The Divide arrived on our screens with a thought-provoking. emotionally wrenching story that all started with Christine Rosa. To get further into the story, we sat down with the woman who brings Christine so beautifully to life: Marin Ireland. Here's what the Tony Award-nominated actress had to say about co-leading this complex and challenging series.

Even though she's one of the show's two main protagonists, Christine is far from likeable; in fact, on multiple occasions, she's been downright infuriating. Was her character's thorniness ever a concern for Marin? "It never is," sh...
