'VANish' Star Tony 'Candyman' Todd Gives Insight On His Amazing Career!

February 24th, 2015 12:20pm EST
Sometimes the hardest job for an actor immediately associated with a single standout character is to move past such a notorious notable and keep working. Fortunately for character actor Tony Todd, who is of course most recognized for his arresting work as former slave Daniel Robitaille turned hook wielding legend "Candyman," it’s truly been a success story. Having done some seriously stellar work both before (see "Platoon," "Lean On Me" and the Tom Savini version of "Night of the Living Dead" to name a few) and after ("The Crow," "The Rock" and of course the "Final Destination" films!) th...

Coby Bell On Concluding 'The Game,' Returning To 'Archer'
The Game is heading into its fourth quarter. The long-running series is airing the last few episodes of its eighth season on BET, with its ninth and final cycle to follow. That unfortunately means we're parting company with Coby Bell, who's been one of the busiest - and coolest - actors on television for the last several years.

We caught up with Coby last week to discuss wrapping up The Game, how strange it is for him after so many seasons of balancing the show with his starring role as Jesse Porter on USA's Burn Notice, and his long-awaited return to Archer in January.

It'll be awhile be...

Need something to do with your weekend? How about getting caught in a sharknado?

'12 Monkeys' Takes Amanda Schull To Number 1

Amanda Schull
SyFy's 12 Monkeys has been one of the biggest surprises of the new TV season: a smart, legitimately suspenseful science-fiction thriller that's already blown the movie out of the water. Within that, one of the best things about it is that its main ensemble is comprised entirely of actors who've been doing tremendous work elsewhere and are now really getting a chance to shine.

One of those is Amanda Schull, who won us over as hard-charging lawyer Katrina Bennett on USA's Suits, and is now playing a strong woman of a different kind as Dr. Cassandra Railly, the woman who may hold the future o...

Carlos Pratts Gets The Spotlight In Disney's 'McFarland, USA'
Disney's McFarland, USA is all about inspiring young adults to do amazing things, and it's a case of art imitating life for actor Carlos Pratts, who co-stars in the film as Thomas, one of the members of McFarland High School's 1987 cross country team.

Like his character, Carlos is getting his chance to shine in this heartwarming sports pic opposite Kevin Costner. We sat down with him on Tuesday to discuss what it was like for him to make McFarland.

You probably haven't heard the story of coach Jim White and the McFarland High runners, who come together out of unlikely circumstances and th...

Linus Roache Returns For Another Season Of History's 'Vikings'
History's Vikings is back, which means that we get to enjoy another season of Linus Roache as the brilliant but always devious King Ecbert of Wessex. Last seen defeating the Vikings in battle, Ecbert still has plenty up his sleeve in season three - and whether or not he can be trusted is always up for debate.

After our interview with him from last season, we caught up with Linus recently to learn a little bit more about what Ecbert may be up to in these upcoming episodes and what it's been like for him to portray the character for his second season.

"With King Ecbert, you never quite know...

Interview: 'My Way' Documentary Rock Maven Rebekah Starr On Insp
Nothing says inspirational like a documentary featuring someone going after their dream. But when that person is a hot and talented kick ass female rock star with laser focus the ante definitely gets upped. Boldly dropping out of corporate life, grabbing a guitar and hitting the road to reach the famed Sunset Strip or bust, musician Rebekah Starr is the fetching focus of the ruckus and real new flick "My Way" that documents Starr’s willingness to risk it all – including her life and marriage - in search of a dream. The event filled road trip flick follows the Pennsylvania native and her ...

'The Americans' Star Annet Mahendru: Nina Is 'Going To Face Her
On The Americans, Nina Sergeevna may be gone, but she is definitely not forgotten. The foreign agent who moved two men to fight for her life was finally glimpsed last week incarcerated in a Russian prison, having been convicted of various crimes.

But Nina's far from done, and last week Annet Mahendru joined us to discuss what's going on in her character's mind and what could lie ahead now that Nina's storyline is starting to be put in motion.

SPOILER ALERT - This interview contains references to events in the current season of The Americans. If you are not caught up with the series, proce...
