Spoiler Chat: Scoop on Scandal, Hart of Dixie, The Mindy Project and More!

September 6, 2013 Leave a comment
Spoiler Chat

Gladiators, are you ready for the new season of Scandal? Because based on the scoop we’ve been getting, we don’t think anyone can adequately prepare for what’s ahead.

We’ve got some info on Scandal‘s new season that’s all about our fearless leader: the POTUS. And we just spoke to Jaime King who spilled some Hart of Dixie details. All that, plus scoop on The Mindy Project, The League, Two and a Half Men and more in today’s Spoiler Chat:

Shawn D.: Wake me up when September ends…because it means Scandal is back! Got any scoop on the new season to help make the wait more bearable?
You know what everyone seems to be forgetting about in the midst of all craziness due to the reveals of Olivia’s father and the press finding out about her affair with Fitz? The fact that Fitz is still going to be running for reelection in season three! Of course, that isn’t such an easy task now that his affair has not only been outed, but confirmed. And yes, you can expect to see his opponents have a field day with the scandal. Well, not a field trip, more like a debate where the issue comes up. Awkward!

Trista: Bluebell me! I want to know what’s coming up for Hart of Dixie in season three.
What a coincidence! We just hung up the phone with Bluebell’s most sassy resident, the wonderful Jaime King, and she says that season three is going to really shake things up for our ladies in the love department. “I’m really excited for Hart of Dixie fans because we have a lot of new developments with the characters.” King continues, “And we have great new guest stars! Robert Buckley, and Josh Cooke are really awesome actors that are coming on to play love interests and to throw some curve balls for Zoe and Lemon.” Looks like there’s a lot more man-candy moving to Bluebell! Are you as excited as we are? Answer: No. No you’re not.

Jackie C.: Scoop on New Girl or Mindy Project….or both!
Don’t be greedy, we’ll just give you some Mindy Project scoop. It’s a pretty standard rule that there shall not any horsing around on planes, because TSA has no patience for that nonsense. Too bad Mindy doesn’t care about that rule and will find herself in hot water after flight attendants find her “threatening”. We’re talking the type of hot water that puts you in handcuffs. Plus, Mindy-Danny shippers will be bummed to know that he will get asked out by a really hot woman quicker than you can say “gyno” in that same episode.

Drew: You guys never give us any scoop on The Middle. What’s a guy got to do to get some spoilers on TV’s funniest comedy?!
Dinner would be nice. Maybe flowers? We jest, we jest. About the flowers anyway. But let’s talk scoop, shall we? The ABC comedy’s milestone 100th episode is coming up and the episode will appropriately be titled “The 100th.” And what do you know, Orson is always celebrating its centennial with a big parade, complete with a John Mellencamp tribute artist and town slogan contest!

Revolution

Jenner: Thanks for the Revolution scoop in Spoiler Chat! Might I trouble you for s’more?
Who has s’mores? Oh, you mean “some more” scoop. Don’t get us excited with talk of chocolate goodness and then take it away. Jerk. Anyway, Revolution is looking to add a new ally to the team around episode seven, and this character is definitely around for the long haul. This new guy will be smooth-talking, likeable and an all-around good guy. He’ll probably rub someone the wrong way, but you don’t want to go to blows with him. The new dude will be in shape and ready and willing to throw a punch or two.

Aron: Please tell me we’ll be seeing some girl on girl action on Two and a Half Men. I love Amber Tamblyn!
We’d call you creepy, but we bet the rest of America is thinking the same thing. We do know that there will be an episode involving Amber’s character and three of her girlfriends going out partying. Whether that will lead into a more-than-friends situation is not quite clear, but at the very least we’ll see a drunk girl fall down?

Ashton: The League just added season four on Netflix, and I burned through half of the season. Gotta know if the beautiful Kristin Cavallari will be in season five?
As a matter of fact, Mark Duplass just told us that her husband Jay Cutler will be popping up in the new season, but his lovely wife probably will not be joining him. Unless there’s another breast milk debacle on the horizon. Isn’t the Chicago Bears quarterback what you really want when you watch this show? No? Well, count on other NFL stars to appear as well. Hint: a Defensive MVP and a kicker will be in the premier episode.

Shania: I know you guys love Workaholics as much as I do, so what do you got on the new season?
Can you imagine hiring one of the guys to entertain at a child’s birthday party? It will happen in episode five of the new season, and we’re both excited and terrified to see how it goes.

Want the latest TV scoop? We got it! Tweet your Spoiler Chat questions to @KristinDSantos or email them to tvdiva@eonline.com!

The Newsroom Has Been Renewed for Season 3, According to Jeff Daniels

September 6, 2013 Leave a comment

HBO’s The Newsroom, which is currently seven episodes into its nine-episode second season, has been renewed for Season 3, at least according to series star Jeff Daniels:

The actor tweeted as much on Tuesday night, saying, “It’s official. #Newsroom coming back for a Season 3.”  HBO still hasn’t confirmed the news.

I obviously don’t work for HBO, and God knows that if I was in charge of renewing shows, we’d all probably still be watching the crew of Battlestar Galactica attempt to build a new life on Earth, but I think it would be very off-base to not renew The Newsroom at this point. The series has enjoyed a jump in quality in Season 2—due in large part, I like to thinkto its new title sequence and Olivia Munn continuing to be fantastic.  I don’t think you’ll find many people who don’t consider Season 2 to be a major step up from Season 1.

Defiance Season 2 Adds Die Hard Menace — Plus: New Love Triangle Ahead

September 6, 2013 Leave a comment

Defiance Season 2 Casting NewsThe Earth Republic of Syfy’s Defiance has further fortified itself for Season 2, with a pair of new castings.

TVLine has learned exclusively that Die Hard franchise alum William Atherton will fill the role of E-Rep official Viceroy Mercado aka Major Pottinger’s commanding officer. Described as ruthless, sarcastic and fond of peppering his sentences with “old Earth” references, Mercado is harboring a dark secret that would shock both his colleagues and the people of Defiance.Defiance_Anna_Hopkins

Also boarding the show’s sophomore run is Anna Hopkins as Jessica “Berlin” Rai, a soldier and documentarian who makes propaganda films that shine a positive light on E-Rep’s occupation of Defiance. Watch for this tough, fearless lass to form the center of a passionate love triangle.

Atherton’s more recent TV credits include guest gigs on Workaholics, Castle and The Glades, while Hopkins appeared in a February episode of Nikita.

When Defiance opens Season 2 in June 2014, E-Rep has assumed control of the titular town with far-reaching consequences — including a new mayor — while Nolan is traversing the badlands to find Irisa, Amanda assumes an unexpected role as she searches for Kenya and the Tarr family desperately tries to keep control of their criminal empire.

Enlisted: Hart of Dixie’s Mircea Monroe Tapped to Entertain the Troops

September 6, 2013 Leave a comment
 Enlisted Cast Mircea MonroeFox’s Enlisted will be whistlin’ dixie in Season 1, when Mircea Monroe makes an appearance.

TVLine has learned that the Hart of Dixie scene-stealer will guest-star in an episode of the new fall comedy(premiering Friday, Nov. 8 at 9:30/8:30c). She’ll play a civilian liaison who books entertainment for the troops.

Monroe’s alter ego dated Geoff Stults’ leading man for eight months — and they might actually still be together! (Turns out, Pete never really broke up with her before his deployment, leaving the feisty coordinator understandably enraged.)

In addition to her recurring role on The CW’s Dixie, Monroe co-stars on Showtime’s Episodes, which returns Jan. 12.

Once Upon a Time in Wonderland: Keith David to Voice Cheshire Cat

September 6, 2013 Leave a comment

Once Upon a Time Wonderland Cheshire CatWell, this is purrrrfect.

ABC’s Once Upon a Time in Wonderland has called upon a very cool cat and voice work veteran, Keith David, to voice its Cheshire Cat.

Alice’s feline foil will first “appear” (or, you know, not) in the premiere episode of the Once spin-off’s freshman season.

Elsewhere “behind the scenes,” John Lithgow (3rd Rock from the Sun) voices Wonderland’s White Rabbit, while The Who’s Roger Daltrey is reprising his Once role as the hookah smoking Caterpillar.

In addition to David’s on-camera work on TV series (such as the upcoming Fox comedy Enlisted, The Cape and ER) and on the big screen, his extensive voiceover resume includes the Saints Row and Marvel’s Heroes videogames, narrating History’s The Bible miniseries and Community‘s “Pillows and Blankets” episode, and the animated series Gargoyles and Spawn.

Wonderland premieres Thursday, Oct. 10 at 8/7c.

TVLine Items: Beast Adds Arrow/Lying Game Actors, True Detectives Launch Date and More

September 6, 2013 Leave a comment
 AnnieIllonzehBoth Beauty and the Beast are in for a blast from the past, when an Arrow actress and a Lying Game alum drop by during Season 2.

Annie Ilonzeh has landed a potentially recurring role on the CW saga, TVGuide.com reports, playing a high school friend of Catherine’s who is now a news reporter tracking a beastly scent.

Blair Redford, meanwhile, will guest-star in an episode as an Army buddy of Vincent’s who becomes “a terrifying opponent and a dangerous threat” to the beast.

Fun fact: Both Ilonzeh and Redford recurred last season on Switched at Birth, albeit separately.

Ready for more of today’s TV dish? Well…

• True Detectives, HBO’s new right-episode crime drama starring Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey, is slated to bow in January 2014. A full-length trailer for the series — which centers on two detectives whose lives collide during a 17-year hunt for a serial killer — will debut this Sunday ahead of the Boardwalk Empire premiere.

It’s official: Mistresses Alyssa Milano will host Project Runway All Stars‘ third season, launching Oct. 24.

Starz’s new Ron Moore-helmed series Outlander has added Graham McTavish (The Hobbit) and Gary Lewis (Gangs of New York). The project follows a married combat nurse from 1945 who is swept back in time to 1743 and forced to marry another man (played by UK actor Sam Heughan).

Animal Planet has renewed My Cat From Hell for a 16-episode fifth season, to bow in 2014.

News Briefs: Walton Goggins Is Guesting on Community

September 5, 2013 Leave a comment

… Get ready for awesome news in 3… 2… 1… Justified‘s Walton Goggins will guest-star on Community. He’ll play Mr. Stone, a mysterious man who tempts the study group with an interesting offer. Could it be… the opportunity to erase Season 4 from memory? Community still doesn’t have a return date, but now it has Goggins, making the wait even more painful. [TV Guide]

 

BUSINESS TIME

… A&E has ordered the reality series Crazy Hearts: Nashville. It’s another one of those shows that follows musicians as they try to “make it.” [A&E via press release]

… NBC is developing Former Fat Girl, a comedy based on the book 10 Lessons from a Former Fat Girl. The series is being produced by Jason Katims’ True Jack Productions, and would center on a woman in her mid-30s who’s lost a lot of weight and is entering the dating scene with her new trim body. [Deadline Hollywood]

… Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage are responsible for fifty percent of television created today, and that figure might increase now that ABC has purchased First Timers, a comedy from The Neighbors producers Elizabeth Berger and Isaac Aptaker. The series would follow a guy and a gal who form a business partnership. [Deadline Hollywood]

 

CASTING NEWS

… The likable Jason O’Mara has time-traveled for three of his biggest gigs, warping back to prehistoric days and fighting dinosaurs (and viruses and birds) on Terra Nova, zapping back to the 1970s in the occasionally outstanding U.S. remake of Life on Mars, and whooshing over to the 1960s in CBS’s Vegas, but his next role will see him journey all the way to 2013! O’Mara has landed an important recurring role on CBS’s legal drama The Good Wife, playing an Irish lawyer looking to join the corporate ranks. You know what this means: native accent! [Deadline Hollywood]

… More native accents! Starz has added a pair of Scottish actors to its upcoming series Outlander, a drama about a WWII nurse who time-travels back to the days of highland warriors in Scotland. Graham McTavish (The Hobbit) and Gary Lewis (Billy Elliot) will play nephew and uncle in Clan MacKenzie. [Starz via press release]

… Elizabeth Hurley will next be seen on E!’s pilot The Royals. The drama is a rare foray (for E!) into scripted television, and follows a fictional royal family. Hurley will play the Queen. And because Hurley is British, you know what that means… another native accent!!! She last appeared on Gossip Girl. [Deadline Hollywood]

The Arsenio Hall Show returns to televisions on Monday, September 9 (check your local listings for channels), and he’ll have guests! Including Chris Tucker (Monday), Ice Cube and Lisa Kudrow (Tuesday), Magic Johnson and George Lopez (Wednesday), Mark Harmon and Penn & Teller (Thursday), and Angela Bassett (Friday). And they’ll all be using their native accents! [Arsenio Hall Show via press release]

 

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT

… Remember! It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The League, and Totally Biased with W. Kumau Bell return tonight on FXX (the second X is bolded for effect). So reroute your DVRs, search your cable guides for FXX, and don’t panic. There’s a good chance FXX is still listed as Fox Sports Soccer. [A message from me to you]
