'White Collar's' Willie Garson Gets Historical In 'PERIODS.'
For years now, Willie Garson has entertained us playing TV's ultimate quirky sidekick Mozzie on USA's soon to be concluded White Collar; he's been a great foil for every other member of the ensemble, directed for the show, and had another Mozzie-centric episode last week.

But he's found time to bring his talents to other projects, too. One of them is PERIODS., a hilarious semi-improvised film that turns history and literary classics into something not quite so serious. We had the chance last week to ask Willie a few questions about his newest and decidedly different gig.

"I love the idea ...

Danny Griego got his unexpected start in music after he was struck by lightning. Literally. In order to rehab his right arm and hand, both paralyzed after the strike, he learned how to play guitar and the rest is history. The Arizona bred, Texas based singer/songwriter has worked with country legends like Hank Cochran, Red Lane and Max D. Barnes and cracked Billboard's Top 10 "Hot Sales" chart twice in 2014 with his single, "The Coast Is Clear," penned by Red Lane and Scotty Emerick.

Frank Spotnitz is the man who's now driving (pun intended) Transporter, and he also has a track record as one of the best creative minds in television. He's responsible for some of the most memorable episodes of The X-Files, and also helped lay the groundwork of a little show called Strike Back. On Monday, Frank took the time to walk us through the journey of Transporter from season one to season two, and explain some of the show's big changes.

Brooke Burns Takes Us Inside The High-Stakes World Of GSN's 'The
If you like your game shows with a little bit of bite, you're in luck. GSN's The Chase, spun off from the hit UK series of the same name, is back for its third season pitting would-be winners against Mark Labbett, the trivia genius they call "The Beast." Overseeing the battle is Brooke Burns (Motor City Masters), who joined us last week to give us a look behind the curtain of this fast-paced fact fight.

Having hosted The Chase for all three seasons, she spoke about how it's evolved into something that stands separate from its predecessor. "I think the more familiar you are to a format, the...

Ruth Connell: Meet The Actress Behind 'Supernatural's' Rowena
The holiday season is all about family, and that includes on Supernatural. Viewers were recently introduced to the devious witch Rowena, who - in addition to causing trouble for the Winchester brothers - was revealed to be the mother of one of fans' favorite characters. Naturally, this requires some discussion!

Last week, we sat down with the lovely Ruth Connell, who is unsurprisingly nothing like her diabolical alter-ego, to talk about Rowena's revelation and what it's been like for her to land a pivotal role on a series as wildly popular as Supernatural.

SPOILER ALERT - If you're not ca...

'Scandal's' Jasika Nicole Talks Kim: 'She's Always At Level Ten'
She's the woman that Huck can't let go of, no matter how hard she tries to make him. The character of Kim has been breaking Huck's heart (and the audience's) since her first appearance on Scandal way back in season two, and for that we can thank actress Jasika Nicole, who brings her to life.

We had the opportunity to talk to Jasika last week about what it's like to play the emotionally wound up Kim (not easy), plus discuss how she was able to move forward from her best-known role as Astrid Farnsworth on Fringe.

"I did [my] first episode [of Scandal] and it was kind of like a dream," she e...
