Elijah Wood Says Goodbye To 'Wilfred' - Saves Bear And Gatorade
At four seasons strong, "Wilfred" has had quite a successful run. Elijah Wood has been playing Ryan, a guy who visions a dog as a man. How is that even possible? Who really knows. Given an answer to this bizarre behavior or not, the part psychological and part comedic appeal is what has drawn a unique audience to tune in since its premiere. But, there is an end to most every show and "Wilfred" is at its doom.

Elijah Wood recently took some time out of his busy schedule to chat all things "Wilfred" and Ryan. "Wilfred" is currently airing Wednesdays on FXX at 10 P.M., and the series finale i...

We caught up with Jamie last Wednesday to talk about her Graceland experience and how it stacks up against playing a werewolf.

"What I love about this part - and something that's super important to me - is to make her a real person and not a caricature of herself," she told us. "[Lucia]'s got such a cool, complicated ...

Marin Ireland: Meet 'The Divide's' Dynamic Leading Lady
Last week, The Divide arrived on our screens with a thought-provoking. emotionally wrenching story that all started with Christine Rosa. To get further into the story, we sat down with the woman who brings Christine so beautifully to life: Marin Ireland. Here's what the Tony Award-nominated actress had to say about co-leading this complex and challenging series.

Even though she's one of the show's two main protagonists, Christine is far from likeable; in fact, on multiple occasions, she's been downright infuriating. Was her character's thorniness ever a concern for Marin? "It never is," sh...

Tony Goldwyn
It's no wonder that Tony Goldwyn has co-created a TV series. Over his acting career, most recently as President Fitzgerald Grant on Scandal and Andrew Prior in Divergent, he's consistently been at the top of the game. As the director of films like Conviction and shows like Justified, he's made sharp choices that have enabled projects to shine. Teaming with Richard LaGravenese to create The Divide, then, is a natural progression for one of entertainment's smartest and most thoughtful voices. We sat down with Tony at the recent Television Critics Association press tour to take a closer look i...

'True Blood': Bailey Noble On Saying Goodbye To Adilyn Bellefleu
Life hasn't been very easy for Adilyn Bellefleur, but Bailey Noble is enjoying her time playing Adilyn on HBO's hit series True Blood. With the seventh and final season of the show underway, we caught up with Bailey last week to talk about her promotion to series regular status and how difficult it is for her not to tell anyone what's really going on in Bon Temps.

"I'm not quite ready for it to be over yet!" laughed the actress, who joined True Blood in a recurring capacity last season. "I want to spend more time with [Adilyn]. When the show's done, she's done."

And hopefully not 'done' a...

This week, the RiffTrax guys are taking on one of their best choices over: SyFy's cult sea life-disaster movie, Sharknado. We chatted with Mike recently to ask him how such a feat of genius happened.
