'All Hail King Julien' Brings 'Madagascar' Favorite To Netflix
After the big-screen success of The Penguins of Madagascar, DreamWorks is giving another character from the popular Madagascar film franchise his own spin-off - this one a TV series on Netflix.

All Hail King Julien brings back Danny Jacobs as the voice of King Julien, the larger than life lemur, as audiences will get to see what he was like before the movies and before the Central Park Zoo animals descended on Madagascar.

While Julien still has lovable Mort and right-hand man Maurice to keep him company, he's also joined by "special ops" expert Clover, voiced by India de Beaufort. We rece...

Matt Bomer And Tim DeKay Talk 'White Collar' Finale: 'Do Not Wal
Tonight's conclusion of White Collar means that we also have to bid farewell to one of TV's best duos: Matt Bomer and Tim DeKay.

In addition to making a dynamic team as con man Neal Caffrey and his FBI minder Peter Burke on the USA drama, they are also a fantastic partnership off-screen, showing what magic can be made when two hard-working actors come together to form one great unit.

We spoke to Matt and Tim on Monday to ask them why they think they've worked so well together - and what their own opinions were about White Collar's ultimate ending.

Naturally, hints about tonight's last ep...

Alysia Reiner Talks Women In Film and Television

Terry McDermott Talks Lotus Crush's Impending World Domination
Season three of The Voice was livened up by Terry McDermott, the Scottish rocker with the winning personality who started off the season, joined Team Blake, and ultimately came in as runner-up on the NBC show.

Having worked steadily since then, Terry has reunited with his band Lotus Crush for their second album, Rabbit Hole, which is set to make waves with audiences in the US and UK alike. While they may not take over the world, they're certainly poised to win over a large part of it.

We reconnected with Terry (pictured above center) last week to discuss why we should be excited about the...

Penn Badgley Talks 'PERIODS' And His Own Historical Significance
Gossip Girl, this is not. Penn Badgley, best known as Dan Humphrey on the upper-crust CW drama, has moved well on since that show ended two years ago and now he's cracking wise in PERIODS., the film that pokes fun at history and classic literature in every way possible.

Penn connected with us last week to give us his perspective on being a part of the unique short film series-turned-feature film, and his really epic thoughts on what he'd want his own place in history to be.

Like Willie Garson, Penn became part of the PERIODS. ensemble through a shared connection with co-creators Victor Qu...

Interview: 'White Collar's' Willie Garson Gets Historical In 'PERIODS.'

December 11th, 2014 12:06pm EST
'White Collar's' Willie Garson Gets Historical In 'PERIODS.'
For years now, Willie Garson has entertained us playing TV's ultimate quirky sidekick Mozzie on USA's soon to be concluded White Collar; he's been a great foil for every other member of the ensemble, directed for the show, and had another Mozzie-centric episode last week.

But he's found time to bring his talents to other projects, too. One of them is PERIODS., a hilarious semi-improvised film that turns history and literary classics into something not quite so serious. We had the chance last week to ask Willie a few questions about his newest and decidedly different gig.

"I love the idea ...

Danny Griego
Danny Griego got his unexpected start in music after he was struck by lightning. Literally. In order to rehab his right arm and hand, both paralyzed after the strike, he learned how to play guitar and the rest is history. The Arizona bred, Texas based singer/songwriter has worked with country legends like Hank Cochran, Red Lane and Max D. Barnes and cracked Billboard's Top 10 "Hot Sales" chart twice in 2014 with his single, "The Coast Is Clear," penned by Red Lane and Scotty Emerick.

On Monday, Frank took the time to walk us through the journey of Transporter from season one to season two, and explain some of the show's big changes.

If you like your game shows with a little bit of bite, you're in luck. GSN's The Chase, spun off from the hit UK series of the same name, is back for its third season pitting would-be winners against Mark Labbett, the trivia genius they call "The Beast."

Ruth Connell: Meet The Actress Behind 'Supernatural's' Rowena
The holiday season is all about family, and that includes on Supernatural. Viewers were recently introduced to the devious witch Rowena, who - in addition to causing trouble for the Winchester brothers - was revealed to be the mother of one of fans' favorite characters. Naturally, this requires some discussion!

Last week, we sat down with the lovely Ruth Connell, who is unsurprisingly nothing like her diabolical alter-ego, to talk about Rowena's revelation and what it's been like for her to land a pivotal role on a series as wildly popular as Supernatural.

SPOILER ALERT - If you're not ca...
