Rick Cosnett Talks THE FLASH, Trading Quips with Grant Gustin, Balancing Drama with Humor, THE VAMPIRE DIARIES, and More

the-flash-rick-cosnett-interview

Viewers were introduced to Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) during Season 2 of the hit CW drama series Arrow, in a way that made the character both likeable and intriguing, and it was easy to see why he immediately got his own TV show.  With The Flash having made its debut to huge ratings, Barry is now getting his own backstory and mythology and villains to fight, while also playing into the bigger DC universe and, at times, characters will cross back and forth between the two shows.

During this exclusive phone interview with Collider, actor Rick Cosnett (who plays seemingly perfect Detective Eddie Thawne) talked about how he won the acting jackpot with this show and role, making his flawless character likeable for audiences, how deeply he delved into his character’s story, being the unexpected foil for the hero, the easy chemistry he has with Candice Patton (who plays Iris West), keeping his character’s background a bit of a mystery, balancing the light moments with the really heavy moments, and the feedback he’s already hearing from fans.  He also talked about how much fun he had playing Dr. Wes Maxfield on The Vampire Diaries, and that he would have liked to have seen what would have happened, if Dr. Wes had been turned into a vampire.  Check out what he had to say after the jump.

San Diego Comic-Con bags aren’t really good for everyday use beyond Comic-Con, but every single year I still manage to squeeze it into my suitcase so I can take it home and never use it again.  Perhaps it’s a little silly, but the designs tend to be pretty cool and when I score one for a show I like, I’m hanging on to it.  And this year will probably be no different; I’ve already got my eye on a few.

For the fifth year in a row, Warner Bros. Entertainment teamed up with Comic-Con to create 13 different bags to be distributed upon check-in.  This year, the line-up includes designs for Arrow, Constantine, The Flash, The Following, Gotham, iZOMBIE and The Originals.  Hit the jump to check out all 13 Comic-Con 2014 bags.

Ian Somerhalder and Producer Caroline Dries Talk THE VAMPIRE DIARIES, Upcoming Character Deaths, Unexpected Consequences, and More

Ian-Somerhalder-The-Vampire-Diaries

With just a handful of episodes left to Season 5 of The CW series The Vampire Diaries, there’s no way to predict who will make it out alive.  Enzo is seeking an eye for an eye, The Travelers sole focus is on finding a permanent home, the Other Side is disintegrating, and Caroline is suppressing a crush that could hurt a friendship.  And in Episode 19, “Man on Fire,” viewers will get to flashback to 1960 and finally learn what really happen to Enzo’s true love, Maggie.

During this recent interview to discuss what’s still to come this season and into the next, actor Ian Somerhalder (“Damon Salvatore”) and executive producer/writer Caroline Dries talked about how the events of this episode will affect the friendship between Damon and Enzo (Michael Malarkey), where Damon and Elena (Nina Dobrev) will be for the rest of this season, where The Travelers are at, at this point, what the disintegration of the Other Side will mean for those already dead and the deaths still to come, that there will be at least three character deaths before the end of the season, how these characters will have to form a united friend to fight for a common cause, the fate of Tyler (Michael Trevino) and where Caroline’s (Candice Accola) love life is headed.  Check out what they had to say about The Vampire Diaries after the jump, and be aware that there are some spoilers.

Thursday TV Ratings: COMMUNITY Finale Tops PARKS AND REC; SCANDAL Finale Surges

Thursday evening’s TV ratings are in.  Here’s a brief look at the highlights:

  • The season five finale of NBC’s Community saw a slight ratings uptick, rising 11% from last week’s series low 0.9 rating to a 1.0 rating in the 18-49 demo and scoring 2.9 million viewers.  It barely edged out Parks and Recreation for the night, but that’s still far from a “solid” ratings performance.  And yet, a sixth season renewal is actually looking pretty likely since it would put the series in a lucrative position for syndication.  If NBC doesn’t renew Community and “Basic Sandwich” ends up being the series finale, we’ll all just have to assume a giant asteroid destroyed all life on earth.  It is canon, after all.
  • Over on ABC, Scandal closed out its buzzworthy third season with a 3.4 rating and 10.45 million viewers, rising 13% from last week and marking the show’s highest rated season finale yet.  A fitting end to what’s been a breakout season for the Shonda Rhimes soap.
