Colm Feore Is The Dollmaker On "Gotham"
Colm Feore ("Chicago," "Thor") has scored the role of Batman villain The Dollmaker in Fox's prequel series "Gotham".
In this take, Feore's villain is named Dr. Francis Dulmacher, a man with a "zealotry bordering on madness, and aided by his genius-level intellect and vast medical expertise," Hints about The Dollmaker have already been placed in the series.
In the comics, he first appeared in 2011 where he cut off The Joker's face and saw his father killed at the hand of James Gordon as a young child. He also wears his dad's skin as a mask.
This would also seemingly put to bed talk of a shared "Arrow"/"Gotham" universe as Michael Eklund has already portrayed The Dollmaker on "Arrow".

Rachael Taylor Is Hellcat In "Jessica Jones"
Australian actress Rachael Taylor ("Transformers") is joining the cast of "Marvel's A.K.A. Jessica Jones" series on Netflix. Taylor will take on the role of Patricia 'Trish' Walker.
In the show, she's a syndicated radio talk show host, former model and child TV star known to her adoring fans as 'Patsy' Walker. As Jessica Jones' closest friend, Trish helps her embark on the most dangerous case of her career.
In the comics, the character became the superhero and Avenger known as Hellcat. Will we see the same here?
Taylor joins a cast that includes Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones, David Tennant as Kilgrave and Mike Colter as Luke Cage. "A.K.A. Jessica Jones" is slated to premiere on Netflix later this year.
I thought she was one of the most grounded characters in Transformers. I would pretty much say it makes sense to have Hellcat around. I wonder if others will follow?

It looks like Skydance has heard the complaints of the Terminator fans and has decided to release a Arnold-centric teaser for Terminator:Genisys.
The film has not been rated yet but I have the feeling it will be a family movie, with no blood, no horror scene...and no fear for the fate of the main characters(?). The music they used for this teaser does not help. You can also find me on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr or Youtube

# 1101 No-offence to Arnold but that little voice in my head is saying I don't think 'He'll be Back' I may be wrong but I have a gut feeling the film might be a complete washout. Don't get me wrong the teaser was quite impressive in it's own way. But as a Terminator fan I do hope it isn't a family movie, that's all we need! Yeah the music was crap!

Former "Heroes" star Milo Ventimiglia has scored a recurring guest starring role in a multiple-episode story arc that encompasses the last few episodes of the first season of Fox's "Gotham".
First appearing in the season's nineteenth episode, Ventimiglia will play Jason Lennon (aka the Ogre), but NOT the Ogre from the DC Comics canon. In this, his character is a handsome, wealthy and seductive serial killer who has been preying on the young women of Gotham for nearly a decade.
Lennon confronts these women with a series of 'tests' to find his perfect mate, and when they fail to live up to his impossible standard he disposes of them quickly and viciously. His obsessions and Gordon's determination to bring him down send them both on a course toward tragedy.

A&E To Revive 'Unforgettable' For Season 4 Following CBS Cancellation
The producers of "Unforgettable" may want to change the series name to "Unkillable," with A&E expected to revive the canceled CBS drama for a fourth season of 13 episodes.
CBS axed the show after its freshman year before reversing course and picking it up for seasons two and three, which were aired in the summer. The show was canceled again last October, but A&E has stepped in to revive the series, which hails from Sony Pictures Television and stars Poppy Montgomery.
A&E recently cancelled one of its own popular procedurals, "Longmire," only to see the Robert Taylor series resurrected at Netflix.
I started watching this show at the beginning but gradually lost interest. I liked Poppy Montgomery but that was about only thing that lured me to this show. I didn't know the show had lasted as long as above mentioned the show seems to be having a charmed life.

David Morrissey is the latest new cast addition for the upcoming second season of CBS' summer drama series Extant.

In season 2, astronaut Woods discovers she has unwittingly put the human race on a path to destruction and that she and a mysterious stranger might be the only hope for survival. As part of the series' evolving storyline, which now will focus on Molly's efforts to track down her alien son who is threatening the human race, the series is revamping its supporting cast. Besides Berry, coming back as regulars are co-stars Pierce Gagnon, who plays Molly's android son, and Grace Gummer, who plays an assistant on the Humanichs Project. Season 1 series regulars Goran Visnjic, who played Berry's robotics engineer husband, and Camryn Manheim, who played her friend and co-worker, might return for a couple of episodes. Hiroyuki Sanada and Michael O'Neill are not coming back.

'Walking Dead' Star Emily Kinney To Menace 'The Flash'
Emily Kinney is trading zombies for meta-humans, securing a villainous guest role on The CW's "The Flash."
"The Walking Dead" actress will appear in episode 118 of the superhero show, titled "All-Star Team-Up," which will also feature a crossover with "Arrow" as Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards) and Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh) travel from Starling City to Central City so Ray can get some help on his ATOM suit from STAR Labs.
Kinney will play Brie Larvan, a reimagining of the classic DC villain Bertram Larvan, also known as Bug-Eyed Bandit. Brie is a narcissistic tech wizard wreaking havoc in Central City. When Felicity and Ray arrive, Felicity recognizes Brie as her nemesis, and the two women engage in a hacker battle for the Flash's life.
"In episode four of 'Flash' when Felicity came by, it wasn't just a gag to have Felicity come by. It really was integrated into the story," previewed "Flash" exec producer Andrew Kreisberg. "When you reach what's going on in 'The Flash' at that point in the season, Barry is really at a crossroads. Having Felicity come by exactly when he needs her really plays into the whole storyline --- [And]Ray Palmer is all about technology and STAR Labs is all about technology. We get to see Ray so happy to be in STAR Labs --- With Cisco [Carlos Valdes] and Ray, they're new best friends. The STAR Labs team is going to help Ray further his ATOM project."
"The Flash" airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on the CW.
