'Homeland' Hits Another Season High As Finale Nears

Homeland's recent ratings growth continued Sunday with a penultimate episode that delivered the thriller's biggest audience of the season. Showtime's espionage drama had 2.1 million viewers - the eighth consecutive season high for the show. It also marks Showtime's most-watched telecast of the year.

Homeland has enjoyed a creative revival in season four, though hasn't been able to recapture its peak viewership - its biggest number remains the third season finale (2.4 million). But since Sunday's episode was higher than last year's second-to-last episode, perhaps we'll see a new all-time record set during next week's finale.

As it stands at the moment each episode of 'Homeland' leaves you wanting more and more. This season has been completely mesmerizing outstanding story-telling. The cast have been absolutely awesome.

One thing that I can't seem to get my head around is the ratings of this show. I'm quite shocked that the viewership is so low for a show of such high quality plot-lines and top-notch actors in 'Homeland'
I can't wait for next week's finale.

Time Flies: Firefly Is Twelve Years Old!

Quote
Glau was a classically trained ballerina, and also studied tango and flamenco. Unfortunately, a broken toe ended her dance career, but then she exploded onto our screens as the deeply disturbed and talented River Tam. She appeared as a ballerina on the episode "Waiting In The Wings" in the Whedon created series Angel, and the rest is history. She can most recently be seen in Arrow and Sequestered.

The Best Movie Sequels Ever Made

'Terminator 2: Judgment Day' (1991)

Like the initial "Terminator," "T2" made a virtue of Arnold Schwarzenegger's acting limitations by casting him as an emotionless robot, but this time, he's the hero, not the villain. 

The new villain, Robert Patrick's T-1000, was not only terrifying but a special-effects milestone, making "morphing" the signature F/X breakthrough of the 1990s. 

Director James Cameron effectively expanded the nightmare universe of his original, and Linda Hamilton (as the buff but now-unhinged mother of humanity's savior) found new heroism and depth as well.

Surprise! Jennifer Lawrence Is 2014 'S Top-Grossing Actor

This probably won't come as a surprise to anyone: Forbes has released its annual list of the top-grossing actors in Hollywood, and the number one champ for 2014 is none other than Jennifer Lawrence. With not one, but two huge blockbuster movie franchises, the Oscar winner's a big part of grossing a combined $1.4 billion (X-Men and The Hunger Games).

Sitting at number two is Chris Pratt, an actor whose star power is equally obvious in hindsight, but far from a given at the start of the year - no one expected The LEGO Movie to be a huge hit, and Guardians of the Galaxy had plenty of people nervous.

Rounding out the top three is Scarlett Johansson, an actress who had a very big summer with Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Lucy, and Under the Skin all in theaters over a relatively short period of time.

Glamorous, Attractive and only 24 she has the world at her feet.

6 Of Cinema's Best Robots, Androids, And Cyborgs

We've been making movies about robots since Cinema's very first sci-fi movie, Metropolis. Whether it's their cold, calculated demeanor, or the image of a future where we become their slaves, for whatever reason we've been fascinated with the idea for decades now. In recent years though, our robots have progressed from "utterly terrifying" into "cute and cuddly," and if District 9 director Neill Blomkamp's latest movie Chappie is to be believed, we may have a taste of both coming soon. Chappie is set to release in March of next year.

6. T-800 101 From Terminator 2: Judgment Day, 1991

The distinction between Arnold Schwarzenegger's cyborg from the first Terminator Installment and the sequel is important to make. The first edition was a murderous robot intent on taking out an innocent women destined to give birth to the savior of humanity. For the sake of this list, we're glorifying Judgment Day's T-800 that attempted to save that same woman and her son. Arnold may very well have peaked with his performance as the no-nonsense destruction machine from the future, but his role will always be remembered for his monotone catch phrases and his thumbs-up exit.

Is 'Boardwalk Empire' Heading To The Big Screen?

Boardwalk Empire might be getting a second life on the big screen. Though the HBO drama's five-season run came to an end only recently, Mark Wahlberg - who served as a producer for the series - is reportedly already looking to continue the story with a movie adaptation.

The actor brought up the possibility of a Boardwalk Empire film, during a recent interview with NJ.com. "My next goal now is to get the movie made," he said, also revealing that he hopes to transition the critically acclaimed series to the big screen similarly to the way Entourage recently did with its upcoming movie. Wahlberg also served as a producer on the popular HBO comedy as well, before it wrapped up in 2011. 

Wahlberg also apparently already has a prolific director in mind: Martin Scorsese. As Boardwalk Empire fans know, Scorsese directed the pilot episode of the series, back when the show first made its debut in 2010. His effort won him an Emmy for Best Direction in a Drama series. Though that episode was his only directorial contribution to the show, the famed filmmaker was reportedly involved in helping to establish the feel of the show alongside creator Terence Winter and also stayed on as one of the executive producers throughout its time on the air.

Viola Davis Talks Playing Amanda Waller

Amongst the two dozen or so upcoming movies over the next few years based on comic books, one of the most interesting is David Ayer's "Suicide Squad" film. A big reason for that appeal is not just the concept, but the characters including government agent Amanda Waller.

Waller is a fascinating creation, a tough as nails government agent and pragmatist who cares about getting the job done no matter the political and moral implications. Several strong actresses have played her including Pam Grier, Cynthia Addai-Robinson, Angela Bassett, and still the best to date - C.C.H. Pounder.

The casting of beloved actress Viola Davis as Waller the other week though is an excellent choice. Davis herself tells Nerd Report that scheduling around her "How to Get Away with Murder" series commitments are still being sorted out, but she's very excited about the character:

"I'm fascinated by her. I'm fascinated by her in this world of superhero-ness because she is not a woman that you would expect. I think that she is a massive contradiction. She's this big powerful black woman, hard, ready to pick up a gun and shoot anyone at will. I'm fascinated in exploring her psychology, just put it that way. And I'm excited to pick up a gun."

Shooting on the "Suicide Squad" film begins in April in Toronto.

10 Supposedly Formidable Film & TV Characters Who Sucked In A Fight

1.  T-X (Terminator 3: Rise Of The Machines)

This is a really obvious one I'll admit. The most advanced terminator is noticeably worse than the predecessor and is beaten in a manner that would have been easily avoided by the T-1000. This villain is even worse in the hand to hand combat scenes than the T-1000 with Arnie actually holding own more than really makes sense for the story. A minor point maybe but the terminator in this film is a T-850, a slightly upgraded model from the previous two films, but this should have been a very one-sided battle. Terminator: Salvation didn't fall into the trap of trying to recreate the first two films and that was where Terminator 3 failed, and to have Terminator Salvation as an improvement is not good.

Terminator 3 failed to follow its predecessor in both the main villain and the plot, and the T-X should by definition be the ultimate killing machine. Unfortunately the T-1000 had that distinction and what we had here was a supermodel in a leather bodysuit who never seemed the present any real threat and this was as much to do with the laziness of the plot as the character herself.

This model of terminator had the "advantage" of built-in weapons which Arnie and friends promptly sabotaged. The T-1000 was very close to indestructible and was resourceful enough to just attain weapons and in any event a hard pinch would have killed off John Connor once the T-850 had been incapacitated. In short, having built-in super-weapons is like buying an assault rifle to kill a fly rather than a fly-swatter and then shooting yourself in the foot (profound analogy being made here), It's obviously a flawed approach to say the least. As underwhelming as the T-X is in ability and effectiveness, she/it also lacked the menace of the antagonists in the previous two films as well which didn't help one bit.

Ranked: How Superhero Stars Fared After Giving Up The Cape

The list takes a look at 20 ex-superhero stars to see how they fared after leaving an iconic comic book role behind. 

20. Billy Zane 

The suave American actor looked set for big things in the '90s thanks to impressive roles in Dead Calm and Tombstone, but his time in the purple Phantom costume ended up being a box office misfire. 

Following on from The Phantom, Zane forged his own luck in Titanic as Rose's slimy fiance' Cal Hockley. Despite James Cameron's epic becoming the then-highest grossing film ever, it failed to provide a springboard for Zane. His recent work includes The Scorpion King 3, Leprechaun's Revenge and the upcoming Zombie Killers: Elephant's Graveyard.

19. Wesley Snipes

After leaving the role of Marvel's vampire hunter in Blade: Trinity, Snipes has largely been off the radar due to his three-year prison sentence for tax evasion. 

Nevertheless, Snipes still managed to appear in the underrated Brooklyn's Finest and a part in last year's The Expendables 3 suggests there might still be more to come from him as a big screen action hero.

18. Chris O'Donnell

A hot property in the in the early '90s, O'Donnell shared the screen with Al Pacino for the screen icon's Oscar-winning Scent of a Women and led Disney's lavish Three Musketeers movie.

He allegedly beat out Leonardo DiCaprio and Christian Bale for the role of Robin in Batman Forever, and after reprising the part in the much-maligned Batman & Robin he headlined The Bachelor and Vertical Limit. Since then O'Donnell has been more successful on the small screen - for the last six years he's been appearing in NCIS: Los Angeles. 

17. Brandon Routh 

Plucked from relative obscurity to step into Christopher Reeve's shoes for Superman Returns, Brandon Routh looked destined for big things thanks to his under-appreciated turn as Kal-El.

Sadly, Bryan Singer's franchise relaunch wasn't embraced by Man of Steel fans or the wider cinema-going public and this marked Routh's only outing as Superman. A part in Scott Pilgrim vs the World followed, as did notable guest spots on TV. He's now back in the limelight with comic book fans thanks to his well-received turn as Ray Palmer (aka Atom) on Arrow.

16. Val Kilmer

Val Kilmer was something of a hot property when he took over the role of the Dark Knight from Michael Keaton in 1995's Batman Forever. He only played Batman once, but after departing the role he never quite managed to build any post-superhero momentum. 

The Island of Dr Moreau, The Saint and At First Sight, all released in quick succession, didn't quite hit the target. Kilmer has, however, been impressive of late in supporting roles (Palo Alto) and a part in Terrence Malick's upcoming untitled project hints that he still has much to offer. 

15. Ioan Gruffudd

Once tipped to play James Bond, Welsh actor Ioan Gruffudd has mainly been a presence on the small screen since waving goodbye to Fantastic Four's Reed Richards.

He's currently the lead on ABC's Forever, playing a 200-year-old man who's cursed with immortality. He'll soon be back on the big screen with a role in Dwayne Johnson's disaster epic San Andreas. 

14. Christopher Reeve

The daddy of superhero movies, Christopher Reeve's brilliant portrayal of Clark Kent in the '70s Superman set a standard that arguably hasn't been surpassed. Reeve never quite managed to escape the Man of Steel's shadow, but he did seek out top high calibre directors that led to impressive supporting roles - The Remains of the Day (with James Ivory), Deathtrap, (Sidney Lumet) and Speechless (Ron Howard) were particular highlights.

Reeve's tragic horse riding accident meant that in later life activism took precedent over acting, but before he passed away he'd embraced his Superman legacy with a memorable guest role in Smallville.

13. Michael Chiklis

Chiklis's legendary status is secure thanks to his role as The Shield's hard-as-nails cop Vic Mackey, a role he continued with for a year after his final outing as Fantastic Four's Thing.

Post-Ben Grimm movie fans haven't really seen much of Chiklis, although he's been a familiar face on the small screen thanks to recent roles in Sons of Anarchy and American Horror Story.

12. Eric Bana

Remember that five-year stretch when Eric Bana was in every movie? Despite appearing in Black Hawk Down, Troy, Munich and Hulk, Bana never quite managed to propel himself onto the A-list.

His recent roles have been in lower profile fare such as Deliver Us from Evil and Deadfall, but a return to his comedy roots(Bana began his career as a stand-up) with Ricky Gervais's Special Correspondents this year could put him back on the map.

11. Jessica Alba

The triple-whammy of Dark Angel, Sin City and Fantastic Four set Jessica Alba on the path to stardom. After Sue Storm Alba shifted focus from acting to her family and business interests, but has still cropped up in diverse fare ranging from The Killer Inside Me to Little Fockers.

Alba is still an ever-present on glossy magazine covers, suggesting that she doesn't need a superhero part to keep a high profile.

10. Jennifer Garner

JJ Abram's spy show Alias propelled Jennifer Garner to stardom and for a time she was being touted as the next Julia Roberts.

Garner was one of the standouts in the uneven Daredevil, but the spin-off movie Elektra bombed at the box office. Though she might not be a go-to name for lead roles, Garner has still featured in critic-pleasing dramas Juno and Dallas Buyers Club and continues to crop up in good supporting roles. 

9. Ryan Reynolds 

After faltering with comic book movies Blade: Trinity and X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Green Lantern was supposed to be the role to cement him as a big-time movie star. It wasn't to be, The film didn't catch on and Reynolds has struggled to find a part to successfully harness his wise-cracking skills. 

He'll get a fourth shot at superhero stardom in 2016 when he reprises his role as X-Men Origin's "Merc with a mouth" Deadpool. 

8. Halle Berry 

Halle Berry bagged an Oscar for her blistering performance in 2001's Monster's Ball, which led to her toplining Warner Bros's Catwoman spin-off movie in 2004. This proved to be the biggest superhero disaster since Batman & Robin, but Berry managed to survive her Razzie-winning role thanks to impressive work in the underseen Things We Lost in the Fire. 

Berry's post-Catwoman parts seem to swing between the sublime (Cloud Atlas) and the ridiculous (Movie 43), but her big budget TV comeback Extant shows she still has currency as a leading lady.

7. Tobey Maguire

Tobey Maguire's Spider-Man success has afforded him the opportunity to be a bit pickier with his post-spandex career choices. 

When he has taken on a role it's usually been to good effect. He slimmed down and brought intensity to Brothers, provided steady narration for The Great Gatsby and plays chess champion Bobby Fischer in the upcoming Pawn Sacrifice. Maguire also has his hand in producing, with credits for Rock of Ages and hotly-tipped YA  adaptation The Fifth Wave. 

6. Edward Norton 

A squabble with Marvel meant that Edward Norton's tenure as Bruce Banner was short-lived. The Incredible Hulk upped the action from its more thoughtful Ang Lee-directed Predecessor, but its box office clout was still lacking and Mark Ruffalo took over the role for The Avengers. Norton may not be at the level of his Fight Club heyday, but he was excellent in Wes Anderson's Moonrise Kingdom and Grand Budapest Hotel. 

Like superhero refugee Michael Keaton. Norton is among the cast for Birdman, riffing on his reputation as a spiky, difficult performer. It's a strong performance that's thrown him into the conversation for this year's Best Supporting Actor Oscar. We wouldn't be surprised if he made the cut.

5. Chris Evans 

Chris Evans is a curious case. Perhaps the most impressive star of the original Fantastic Four quartet. Evans continued to dabble in comic book movies after leaving the Marvel franchise (The Losers, Scott Pilgrim), but never managed to land a big box office hit. He returned to super-heroics (after much to-ing and fro-ing) with Captain America: The First Avenger and the ongoing success of Marvel gave him the chance to star in Joon-Ho Bong's Snowpiercer. 

Evans has admitted that once his Captain America deal runs out he'll likely retire from acting and move into directing. Right now he's in a strong position, but he could go even better and find filmmaking success ala Ben Affleck. 

4. Michael Keaton 

As the lead of the first superhero franchise that truly went seismic, Michael Keaton had his pick of roles in the early '90s. Results were mixed, with the excellent Pacific Heights sitting alongside the Saccharine My Life. 

A revival was briefly threatened thanks to Jackie Brown and Out of Sight, but that fizzled after the disastrous Jack Frost. Slowly but surely Keaton has been climbing back to the top - he was a scene stealer in comedy The Other Guys, brought nuance to an antagonistic role in RoboCop and cemented his comeback with Birdman.

Playing on his role as a former caped crusader, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's film played to Keaton's strengths as an intense, dynamic performer. We wouldn't be shocked if he scoops the Best Actor Academy Award next month.

3. Christian Bale

Bale shed his child star tag thanks to his dark turn in American Psycho, be he never really took off as a movie star until Christopher Nolan's Batman Begins. An Oscar win for The Fighter came between The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises, with further acclaim arriving post-Batman thanks to American Hustle and Out of the Furnace.

Bale's name is still top of every big Hollywood director's casting wishlist. He led the recent Exodus: Gods and Kings for Ridley Scott and was heavily courted for the Steve Jobs biopic. Next up he'll reunite with Terrence Malick for a pair of interconnected films, starting with Knight of Cups later this year.

2. Ben Affleck

When it comes to rollercoaster movie careers, nobody's had more ups and downs than Ben Affleck. After collecting a screenwriting Oscar in 1998 with Matt Damon for Good Will Hunting, Affleck was ushered into a succession of high profile roles with mixed results. Daredevil very much falls into the "miss" category of that Affleck era.

Ironically, his career rehabilitation started with his role as Superman TV actor George Reeves in Hollywoodland before his directorial debut Gone Baby Gone marked him out as a filmmaker of some talent. Behind the camera Affleck has only got better - The Town and Argo both bagged multiple awards nominations, with the latter scooping Best Picture in 2013. As he observed in his BAFTA victory speech in 2013, film careers can have a "second act" Affleck will do the superhero dance all over again in 2016, playing the Dark Knight in Batman v Superman.

1. George Clooney

There really was only one choice to top this list. George Clooney's turn as Bruce Wayne in 1997's Batman & Robin was a franchise-killing disaster. It could've turned him into a throwaway pub quiz answer, but instead he rebounded with a string of critically acclaimed roles in Out of Sight, Three Kings and O Brother, Where Art Thou?

An Oscar win followed for Syriana, and behind the camera he had a hand in Good Night, and Good Luck (as writer/director) and Best Picture winner Argo (as producer). 

Unfortunately no David Lyons for his role in (The Cape).

CBS Renews "Scorpion," "NCIS," "Secretary"

CBS began its Television Critics Association's winter press tour with the news that three of its four new drama series have all scored second season renewals.

"NCIS: New Orleans," "Madam Secretary" and "Scorpion" have all been picked up, CBS Entertainment president Nina Tassler pointing out that the shows are, respectively, the first, second and third ranked new series among total viewers.

"NCIS" is broadcast TV's No. 2 drama averaging 18.1 million viewers an episode, "Madam Secretary" is Sunday's most watched scripted series with 14.9 million viewers an episode, and "Scorpion" pulls in 14.5 million viewers an episode.

Two shows that didn't score a renewal were "Stalker" and comedy "The McCarthys," but both are said to still be in contention for next season. The network still has three series - "Battle creek," "CSI: Cyber," and "The Odd Couple" - yet to debut.
