The witching hour is upon us as "Witches of East End" returns next month. The show’s producers, as well as Rachel Boston who plays Ingrid, sat down with Starpulse at the 2014 ATX Television Festival. What they revealed on the upcoming season has us feeling as though the show will be better than ever. “We take advantage of all things the fans love about the show. Flashbacks, mythology, life and death stakes and an ending that launches you directly into season three. The way we end is the most unexpected season ender of any show I’ve ever heard of,” writer and producer Richard Hatem says. But...

Orange is The New Black: Uzo Aduba, Danielle Brooks And Lea DeLa
By now, everyone and their mother have heard of the show “Orange is the New Black.” If you are a diehard fan, you must have seen some, if not all, of season 2’s stream on Netflix. What made last Friday such a grand day for OITNB was not only the premiere of season 2 but also their screening and panel at the 2014 ATX Television Festival.

After the panel, Starpulse had the opportunity to sit down with Uzo Aduba (Crazy Eyes), Danielle Brooks (Taystee) and Lea DeLaria (Big Boo) for an intimate OITNB discussion. Of course, we made it our goal to get to know the rad chicks firsthand. But before ...

Costa Ronin Talks His Role On ‘The Americans’ And His Upcoming Part in ‘Extant’

Costa Ronin Talks His Role On  ‘The Americans’ And His Upcoming
Costa Ronin is not unlike the character he plays on FX's The Americans. He's not a KGB officer, but like Oleg Burov, he's disarmingly charming and incredibly smart. It's not surprising that Oleg went from the character we loved to hate, to the character we kind of loved. We had the opportunity to chat with Costa recently about joining The Americans, his upcoming part in CBS's big-budget sci-fi show Extant, and the journey of an actor to watch out for.

What was it like for him to be a part of the most intrigue-laden show on TV? Unpredictable might be a good word for it. "You never know what...

‘Ray Donovan’ Star Eddie Marsan Talks About What Happened In Sea
Showtime's Ray Donovan broke ratings records when it aired last year; now the titular South Boston fixer and his dysfunctional family are headed to Blu-Ray and DVD. We recently spoke with one of the series' stars, prolific English actor Eddie Marsan (who plays Ray's brother Terry) about the tumultuous first season and what he's hoping happens when season two starts next month.

"I've never done an American TV show before," he reflected. "As soon as I did the pilot, I was told the history of the family and the way it was all going to be revealed. It was fascinating, because [the cast] did a ...

Lindsey Morgan Talks 'The 100': Which Scene Shocked Her?
The CW's post-apocalyptic teen drama The 100 completes its first season tonight, so we checked in with actress Lindsey Morgan, who plays recurring character Raven Reyes, to find out what to expect and how it's been for her to step into a totally different role than her Daytime Emmy-nominated one on General Hospital.

What has she enjoyed most about the show so far? "I guess the "WTF" moments that we had in the season to where you're like 'Did they really just do that? Did they really just go there and show that?'" she told us - and there have been plenty in The 100, with characters missing ...

Rick Hoffman On 'Suits' Season 4: 'I'm Having A Blast'

Rick Hoffman
Suits is returning tonight with a top-notch season premiere - and before we get too ahead of ourselves, we recently asked series star Rick Hoffman for his perspective on what's ahead, as well as what he thought of the turbulent way his character Louis Litt ended the third season.

Louis got a particularly rough break at the end of the third season, as the episode "Heartburn" saw him suffer a likely long overdue heart attack, then become engaged to longtime love Sheila (recurring guest star Rachael Harris), only for her to break off the engagement when they disagreed over whether or not to s...

Don Stark Goes To The Dark Side In VH1's 'Hit The Floor'

Don Stark Goes To The Dark Side In VH1's 'Hit The Floor'
Playing domineering NBA owner Oscar Kinkade on VH1's Hit The Floor might seem like a bit of a reach for Don Stark, considering that TV audiences still associate him with the loveable Don Pinciotti from FOX's That 70's Show. But this veteran actor has played all sorts of roles over his considerable career, and as Hit The Floor starts its second season, BFTV joined Don to discuss his current role, shaking his old one, and life imitating art.

"The show is so carefully crafted and [creator] James LaRosa and the writers are just amazing," he enthused, although he was limited in what he could sa...

Brannon Braga Talks Concluding 'Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey'
As Cosmos comes to an end, BFTV had the opportunity to talk to the super-producer who helped bring this amazing miniseries to life. Brannon Braga is best known for his work in the Star Trek universe, but he also brought us shows like FlashForward and Terra Nova. We talked to him about the challenges of Cosmos and what it was like going from working with Neil deGrasse Tyson (pictured above) to his current series, WGN America's witch drama Salem.

How was it like for him to return to FOX, with that pre-existing relationship? "It was great," he told us. "Terra Nova got cancelled, obviously, [a...

Lisa Rinna Talks Becoming Bieber For 'Sing Your Face Off'
ABC's Sing Your Face Off became our jaw-dropping guilty pleasure of the summer last week, watching celebrities transformed into music superstars, but what's it like to actually be on the show? BFTV asked soap star Lisa Rinna to tell us about her experience so far in what might be one of the quirkiest competition shows we've ever seen.

"I read the synopsis of the show and I thought, this sounds like the most fun, and what a genius idea!" Lisa enthused. "I just thought what a challenge to become pop icons. I think I have a secret rock star living inside of me. Doesn't everyone?"

But the sho...

Henry Hereford Takes To The High Seas With NBC's 'Crossbones'
Pirates have taken over NBC's airwaves with the premiere of Crossbones, the new high-seas adventure with an impressive creative team and a cast led by John Malkovich. English actor Henry Hereford has a recurring role as Frederick Nightingale, and we touched based with him last week to talk about how entertaining it is to play in a pirate's world.

"[It's] very cool. It's very exciting," he enthused. Why did he end up taking the plunge? "I think there were so many factors involved. I'm a massive fan of Luther, which is the TV show that Neil Cross wrote for the BBC [that] is done incredibly w...
