The Gallagher family isn’t necessarily a traditional one. It’s laced with sex, drugs and felonies. At the heart, though, there is love. Well, some of the time anyway. As they approach season three, the cast—William H. Macy (Frank Gallagher), Emmy Rossum (Fiona Gallagher), Justin Chatwin (Steve/Jimmy), Jeremy Allen White (Lip Gallagher), Cameron Monaghan (Ian Gallagher)— presented at Comic Con and Mike O’Malley (who acts on Glee and writes on Shameless) moderated the panel. Hit the jump for a bullet point recap.
Everyone’s favorite serial killer, Michael C. Hall (as Dexter, of course) will be on hand to open up festivities for Comic-Con 2012. The SHOWTIME panel will also feature a Q&A with Hall, Jennifer Carpenter and special guest, Yvonne Strahovski (Chuck) who will be joining the seventh season. Fans will witness an exclusive first two minutes of the season premiere, along with a new chapter in the animated webisodes, “Early Cuts: All in the Family.” SHOWTIME will also screen a trailer for the second season of Homeland and will host a Shameless panel. Dexter returns September 30th at 9pm on SHOWTIME. Hit the jump for the full press release.
On the Showtime drama series Shameless, actor Justin Chatwin plays Steve, a handsome and charming guy with a lot of money and a rap sheet a mile long. After a heartbroken Fiona (Emmy Rossum) was forced to choose her family over him in Season 1, Steve left for Costa Rica alone. But now he’s back, which is sure to throw a wrench in Fiona’s love life.
While at the TCA Winter Press Tour, Justin Chatwin sat down with Collider for this exclusive interview about what his character has been up to this season, what’s coming up for Steve, that getting past his own psychological barriers of being naked in front of people was part of the initial appeal for the show, finding out how different his character’s backstory is from what he expected, and that he likes Shameless because it brings up important issues, in a smart and funny way. Check out what he had to say after the jump.
On the Showtime drama series Shameless, actor Jeremy Allen White plays Phillip “Lip” Gallagher, the second and by far the smartest Gallagher child, who has a penchant for trouble and a relationship with wild child neighbor Karen (Laura Wiggins) that is always threatening to break his heart. With an even further strained and more contentious relationship with his father than ever, Lip begins to realize that the more he fights to be his own man, the more he may end up just like his father, Frank (William H. Macy).
While at the TCA Winter Press Tour, Jeremy Allen White sat down with Collider for this exclusive interview about how lucky he feels to have such amazing material in Season 2, how the relationship between Frank and Lip will change this season, what he’d like to see Lip do with his life, how bizarre all of the sex scenes can be, and what working on this show with this cast has taught him about the craft of acting. Check out what he had to say after the jump.
Comic Con 2011: At the Showtime Preview Panel, Michael C. Hall and company talked up the 6th season of Dexter; William H. Macy, Emmy Rossum and John Wells teased the second season of Shameless; Morena Baccarin and Howard Shore discussed their new show Homeland. For all this, plus new trailers for Dexter and Homeland, hit the jump.
Fox is one of the better companies when it comes to Blu-ray, but they generally don’t add much exclusive content to their Blu’s. So when they put out an older title, you can expect not much more than what’s already been released. Such is the case with Towering Inferno, and My Cousin Vinny. Where Dragonball Evolution is pretty cut and dried. These are what I’m about to review after the jump.
