Anthony Melchiorri
We caught up with Travel Channel’s Anthony Melchiorri, star of the hit show “Hotel Impossible.” While chatting, Anthony shared the key to a hotel’s success, where he gets his tough love mentality, and what’s the grossest thing he discovered in a hotel room this season.

Tell our readers what you have been up to?

We’ve been shooting season five of the show and we have been to Woodstock, Pennsylvania, North Dakota, and Canada so far. You would think after the show being on for this long and my working with 50 hotels that the owners would be prepared for me or fake that they have it together,...

6 Secrets of 'The Strain' We Learned from Kevin Durand

October 3rd, 2014 2:30pm EDT
The Strain
There are just days to go before "The Strain" airs its season finale. And for a brief hour, we'll all revel in sludgy, slime-drenched vampire goodness.

Maybe someone will be killed off. Maybe Eichhorst. Maybe the Master! Maybe the entire vampire-killing crew (which would mean a fairly uneventful second season).

But after that hour: nothing, for almost an entire year. So while we still have that last little bit of "Strain" left, let's enjoy ourselves.

Recently, Kevin Durand (Vasiliy Fet) held a conference call with reams of writers from sites across the Web, where he detailed the ins and ...

David Tennant Talks 'Gracepoint': 'It's Been Brilliantly Told'
FOX's Gracepoint is notable for a number of reasons. There's the writing of Chris Chibnall, who helped launch Law & Order: UK into the impeccable series that became. There's Anna Gunn, fresh off her Emmy win for Breaking Bad. The biggest plus, though, is that it's a weekly dose of David Tennant - one of the finest actors to come out of the United Kingdom. He leads the ensemble as Detective Emmett Carver, after he did the same as DI Alec Hardy in the critically acclaimed original series.

We spoke to David before tonight's Gracepoint premiere to discuss translating the show from its British ...

Tamala Jones Previews 'Castle' Season 7: 'This Might Be My Favor
Fan favorite Castle left audiences with a shocking ending last season, as Richard Castle never made it to his third wedding. But now we can finally get answers: tonight's season seven premiere, "Driven," picks up right where last season's finale left off.

Earlier this week, we sat down with Castle star Tamala Jones - who plays medical examiner Dr. Lanie Parish - to quiz her about the premiere episode and what else might be in store for season seven.

What was it like for Tamala to wait for resolution to the cliffhanger? "It was torture!" she laughed. "I say this all the time, I'm a huge Ca...

Interview: Jeremy Renner Talks 'Kill The Messenger,' 'Avengers:
Jeremy Renner is an actor's actor. At least that's what we've come to believe. In the short time since he's exploded into the mainstream with an Oscar-nominated performance in Kathryn Bigelow's "The Hurt Locker", Renner has become something of a multi-purpose performer. He's proven his capabilities in a variety of different genres, from bank robbers to superheroes, and he seems keen on stretching his talents as far as they can go.

In his new film, the politically-charged thriller "Kill The Messenger", Renner takes on the true life tale of San Jose Mercury News journalist Gary Webb, wh...

Interview: 'Run Like Hell' Actor Canyon Prince Talks Tough Guy

September 24th, 2014 1:30pm EDT
Run Like Hell
Most great genre films have an element of surprise. Be it a clever twist, witty dialogue or a character that captivates, a strong story device out of left field can certainly raise stakes. Such is the case in the new horror movie “Run Like Hell” (now available on VOD from Gravitas Ventures), an old school homage that mixes “The Devil’s Rejects” with “The Hills Have Eyes” all with a John Carpenter-esk vibe. The film follows a group of two couples stranded in a small town where nothing is as it seems. But the interesting thing is one of the four folks Luke is a red herring of sorts - a mi...

ABC's Dancing with the Stars is back for Season 19, and Emma Slater is hoping to score a Mirrorball Trophy win with her new partner, world.

Last season, Emma's stint on the dance floor was cut short when Star Wars actor Billy Dee Williams retired from the competition due to health issues. With that limited amount of time, was she able to learn anything from working with Billy Dee that's helped her in working with Michael?

"Loads of things," she told us. "I think it's really about just choreographing to your partner's ability and your partner's needs. What I learned with Billy, I learned ...
