'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...

Laura Spencer Doubles Her Success In 'Big Bang Theory' And 'Bone
What's better than a recurring part on one hit TV show? How about recurring parts on two hit TV shows?

That's what's happened for actress Laura Spencer, who not only plays Raj's girlfriend Emily Sweeney on CBS's The Big Bang Theory, but also wears the lab coat of intern Jessica Warren on FOX's Bones. That means on any given Thursday, more than 20 million TV viewers could be seeing her.

We caught up with Laura last week to get a little dish on each series, talk about how she pulls off double duty, and ask her how she's going to program her DVR on Thursday nights.

After all, what's a girl ...

'Pawn Stars': Rick Harrison On TV Fame, Business Sense And Givin
On History's Pawn Stars, you know Rick Harrison as the no-nonsense, all-knowing owner of Las Vegas' Gold and Silver Pawn Shop, who can appraise an antique gun one moment and deal for a piece of movie memorabilia the next. That's not a character: Rick is just as smart and shrewd as he appears on TV - not to mention tremendously funny and doing plenty of good deeds.

We had the opportunity to chat with Rick at last week's SEMA Show to discuss what it's like to be a reality television star, how that impacts running his actual business, and his work with the Epilepsy Foundation.

Pawn Stars, no...

Last week, we had the opportunity to visit him backstage before his live show at The Mirage Hotel & Casino to discuss exactly what goes into Terry and his cast of puppet "friends" entertaining thousands of fans every night.

You might remember Terry as the winner of season two of America's Got Talent, but that's a distant memory now. Unlike many performers, he has been able to establish a successful identity completely separate from reality television. What does he think allowed him to do wha...

'Robot Chicken' Remains Awesomely Irreverant

Interview: 'Robot Chicken' Remains Awesomely Irreverant
Everytime I interview the 'Robot Chicken' cast, I wonder if there's ever anything new I can ask them and if there's anything new they can do, idea wise. Considering they've desecrated almost everything in our 80s childhood from Disney to Nancy Drew to Hasbro since 2005, is there REALLY anything else they can mock, satirize or defecate upon? According to 'Robot Chicken' writer, Breckin Myer, yes. Yes, there is. As long as TV continues to release new shows, companies release new toys and studios release new films like 'Guardians of the Galaxy' they will always, ALWAYS have new stuff. So, eff ...

Jeff Eastin Previews The Final Season Of 'White Collar'
New York's classiest crime show is about to come to an end. Tonight is the premiere of White Collar, kicking off the USA hit's sixth and final season. To help us say goodbye to Neal Caffrey, Peter Burke and the gang, we recruited creator and showrunner Jeff Eastin, who spoke with us about the decision to end the series and how things have changed since its premiere five years ago.

What made this the right time to wrap things up? "You can probably guess it was never the creator's idea to wind it down," he laughed. "For USA, I've got another show on their network, and I think the network's s...

TNT's 'The Librarians' Is Your Next Guilty Pleasure!

November 5th, 2014 8:08pm EST
TNT - The Librarians
I am a major fan of the original made-for-TV movie series, 'The Librarian' including a post-'ER' Noah Wyle's surprising involvement and portrayal of the multi-degree nerdy slacker, Flynn. The 'Librarians' is a guilty pleasure, but it's a full-hearted pleasure. So, when I heard TNT planned on turning it into a series, OF COURSE I wanted to interview the cast at NYCC.

About the Show
The 'Librarians,' produced by Dean Devlin ('Leverage') and John Rogers ('Transformers'), surrounds an organization hidden beneath the Metropolitan Library dedicated to protecting the world from mystical artifacts...
