Abbie Cornish Remakes The Hero's Wife In 'RoboCop'

Abbie Cornish Remakes The Hero's Wife In 'RoboCop'
One of the coolest movie moments so far this year was the return of RoboCop to the big screen. The long-awaited, much-buzzed remake of the sci-fi classic has now hit home video, and BFTV had the opportunity to chat with star Abbie Cornish - the woman behind Alex Murphy/RoboCop's loyal wife Clara - about her own knowledge of the RoboCop franchise and keeping her character away from being the cliched spouse.

"I grew up with RoboCop," the Australian actress told us. "We had it on VHS when I was a kid. I was very familiar with it. I signed on to this not only because of the nostalgic reasons, ...

'Motive' Review: 'Overboard' An Entertaining Story Of Secret Romances

'Motive' Review: 'Overboard' An Entertaining Story Of Secret Rom
Motive has gotten even better in its second season. The show's "whydunit" instead of "whodunit" aspect was a nice concept, but ideas only take a series so far. What made the program stick was that it nailed the fundamental of all good entertainment: it created characters that we cared about. In season two, we're continuing to learn more about these folks we enjoy spending time with, and for once the new guy is actually a valuable addition to the team.

If the title didn't clue you in, this week's murder involves a yacht. It's the worst evening on a boat since Speed 2: Cruise Control. When t...

Mary Murphy Previews 'So You Think You Can Dance' Season 11
FOX's So You Think You Can Dance is back for Season 11, and we recently checked in with the show's most entertaining judge to see what's going on. Here's what Mary Murphy had to tell BFTV about what we can expect from the show, the evolution of dance on television, and how she's able to always be so high-energy!

"It's another great group of kids. I think it'll be a totally different season than last year, which is kind of refreshing," she said, teasing the new season, which is still in its auditions phase. "I think we're going to have a new influx of ballroom [dancing]. I will say that we'...

Roma Downey On 'Son Of God': 'We Had Something Very Special'
As we prepare to celebrate Father's Day, Fox Home Entertainment has released Son of God, the feature film telling the story of Jesus which was adapted from the hit miniseries The Bible. Last week, BFTV spoke with Son of God producer and star Roma Downey to discuss the transition from miniseries to film, working professionally with her husband Mark Burnett, and how they are building on their success with future inspirational projects.

How was Son of God pulled together from the epic ten hours of The Bible? "It began while we were filming the Bible series," Roma - who stars in the movie as M...

'Top Gear' (USA) Recap: Testing Out 'Muscle Cars' In Florida
After some auto racing, a promotion and a baby, the guys from Top Gear are finally back with us for some more automotive adventures. This week's theme is American muscle cars, so naturally, the show opens with a race. "How insane was that?" Rutledge comments. "I'm so glad that road was closed."

They're in Gainesville, Florida - home of the University of Florida Gators - with three resto mods to put to the test. There's a 1967 Ford Shelby Mustang GT500 (courtesy of Tanner), a 1972 Dodge Charger SE (Rutledge), and a 1968 Chevy Camaro (Adam, duh). As the guys examine each other's rides, there...

Brendan Fehr Talks Working 'The Night Shift' For NBC
NBC is once again re-entering the medical drama genre with The Night Shift, which details the exploits of an ensemble working the late hours at a San Antonio hospital. One of the members of that ensemble is veteran TV actor Brendan Fehr, who joined BFTV on Monday to talk about how the series aims to set itself apart from your usual medical drama and what he loves about his character, Army medic turned civilian doctor Drew.

What would he say distinguishes Night Shift from others in this well-traveled genre? "What we tried to do was, we have the take of the military, which I think gives it a...

Finish Line: 'Top Gear' Returns For More Season 4

June 3rd, 2014 12:15pm EDT
Top Gear
You can stop crying into your beer. After a six-month hiatus, History's Top Gear has mercifully returned with new episodes to make us laugh, smile and cry in the name of love of the automobile. From muscle cars to rally cars, the Grand Canyon to Germany, it's going to be one crazy summer.

To prepare for this momentous occasion, BFTV scoured the country (okay, the state of California) to catch up with hosts Adam Ferrara, Tanner Foust and Rutledge Wood, and talk a little Top Gear.

Are they as upended by the split seasons as we are? "It can be a little confusing," Rutledge laughed. "We're ve...

'24: Live Another Day' Episode 6 Recap: '4:00 PM - 5:00 PM'
First of all: isn't it wild that we're already halfway through 24: Live Another Day? After the months we spent waiting excitedly for Jack to come back, how time flies. But some things stay the same, including something that you're either going to love or hate.

We open in the immediate aftermath of last week's major explosion, finding out pretty quickly that Navarro and Erik are still alive, but that a bunch of other CIA agents are not so lucky. The ambush doesn't go over well with anybody on the political side of things, and Prime Minister Davies gets even more upset when his aide Caroline...

'Justified's' Cathy Baron On Season 5 And Dares For Charity

June 1st, 2014 4:01pm EDT
Cathy Baron
On Justified, Cathy Baron is playing a woman of ill repute. Yet off-screen, she's tirelessly working on behalf of a number of good causes. Last year, Cathy partnered with LifeKraze to promote healthy eating, and now she's on Darelicious raising money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. She rejoined BFTV to talk about her latest venture - which involves a gangster rap video (?!) - and her return to Justified this past season.

Darelicious is a different kind of fundraising platform; instead of offering rewards for contributions, those raising money are, as the title suggests, dared to do ...
