Chow Yun-Fat shows how much he enjoyed smacking Justin Chatwin in Dragonball. Plus there are new videos of Battlestar, Chuck, Heroes, Reaper and Kyle XY. Smallville season-nine casting! Plus Lost, Chun-Li, Dollhouse, T:SCC and Pushing.
Chow Yun-Fat did an interview in Mandarin, and they showed a few new super-brief clips of him kicking Justin Chatwin's ass. It definitely looks like Chow had fun making this film. [DB The Movie]
Street Fighter: The Legend Of Chun-Li:
Here's how rapper Taboo describes his character, Vega:
He's the one character that you don't know if he's mortal or immortal. In the movie he wears a mask all the time, and he has a claw, and he's in and out. He does his dirty work, and he's gone before you know it, and you're looking to see more. It's a small part, but it's a huge role because it has a legacy and it has an enormous cult following.
We already featured some preview pics for Friday's episode, "Someone To Watch Over Me," but here they are in better quality, and with a few new ones. What's going on with Sharon, Hera and Tyrol? And where did Sharon get such a snazzy polka-dot dress? [Dryope via Battlestar_Blog]
And here's the reliably spoilery Canadian trailer for the episode. How many times can sparks fly out of every surface on the CIC before they run out of fuses? [Galactica Sitrep]
Here are descriptions for the four episodes after this Friday's:
"Gray Hour": Echo (Eliza Dushku) isn't the only one stealing things when she is imprinted as a safe-cracker whose art heist goes awry after her memory imprint mysteriously vanishes. Plus, Agent Ballard (Tahmoh Penikett) gives Lubov (Enver Gjokaj) an ultimatum.
"True Believer": Imprinted as a blind girl, Echo must infiltrate a heavily guarded cult run by a charismatic leader (guest star Brian Bloom) before a Waco-like tragedy strikes.
"Man on the Street": Agent Ballard's investigation takes a surprising turn when he comes face-to-face and fist-to-fist with Echo for the very first time.
"Echoes": A deadly virus outbreak on a college campus sends Echo back to school where pieces of her past come into focus.
Juliet is not the "major-ish" character who's going to die this season. But Penny has no such assurance, especially since Sonya Walger just scored a role in ABC's Flash Forward. (Although a Lost insider says Walger will "juggle both shows.") Meanwhile, we'll meet two new characters on Lost: Jason, a former soldier with loads of gravitas that makes people want to follow him, and Samuel, a sharky J.R. Ewing-esque businessman who's never happy unless he's taking something over. [EW]
Fionnula Flanagan says we'll learn a lot more about Mrs. Hawking's powers in an upcoming episode, probably 3x14. She says Mrs. Hawking can come and go where she pleases, but won't say whether she's able to control those movements. And she says Mrs. Hawking's spiritual beliefs are not of this planet. Also, Jin and Sun won't reunite until the end of the season. [ E! Online]
Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles:
Here's info on the last six episodes of the season:
"Ourselves Alone" (March 6): The return of Cameron's (Summer Glau) glitch results in regrettable consequences for everyone, and Riley (Leven Rambin) fears Cameron has discovered her secret.
"Today is the Day, Part 1 of 2" (March 13): In the first part of a game-changing two-part installment, Jesse (guest star Stephanie Jacobsen) flashes back to a life-altering mission aboard her submarine, the Jimmy Carter. Meanwhile, Sarah (Lena Headey) and John (Thomas Dekker) decide they can't continue living in their house and make plans to leave.
"Last Voyage of the Jimmy Carter, Part 2 of 2" (March 20): The exciting two-parter continues as Jesse's submarine mission in the future takes a fatal turn that has unforeseen consequences for John, Sarah and Derek (Brian Austin Green) in the present. Also, Sarah deals with Cameron, who has become a liability, and John steps up and makes a life-or-death choice.
"To The Lighthouse" (March 27): Fearing for her life, Sarah stashes John in a safe house with the only person she believes she can rely on, Charley Dixon (guest star Dean Winters). Cameron and Derek struggle to work together after she reveals a big secret, and Weaver's (Shirley Manson) entire effort is at risk when John Henry (Garret Dillahunt) is compromised – but by whom?
"Adam Raised A Cain" (April 3)
"Born To Run" (April 10)
Here's a sneak peek from Monday's episode, "The Tell-Tale Heart":
Apparently that baby that Hiro and Ando were carrying really is "baby Matt," Matt Parkman's kid with his ex, Janice, according to fansite Heroes Television's sources. Baby Matt appears in five episodes, starting in 3x19. And he has a superpower: "when baby Matt gets bad, stuff happens!" (Shoot me now.) And here's a sneak peek from Monday's episode. [Heroes Television]
Here are four clips from Monday's episode, highlighting the scrape-your-eyeballs "supermodel casting couch" subplot. And a few seconds of Adam Baldwin awesomeness. [SpoilerTV]
Here's what happens in episode 14, "Coffee Tea Or Annie":
When Valerie Palmer, a Pan Atlantic air hostess turns up dead, Annie volunteers for a dangerous undercover mission, posing as the murdered woman to help solve the second in a possible series of brutal homicides. Annie, Sam and Ray, working one of Valerie's flights covertly, uncover an unlikely suspect. Then, an invitation to a lurid swingers' party leads to an evening full of sensational surprises - not just for Annie and Sam, attending undercover as a couple, but Lieutenant Hunt also arrives with a special guest to mix it up. Juicy sexual escapades bring the swingers' party to a fever pitch, but will the murderer be revealed? Finally, Annie confronts Hunt with the courage of her convictions about her future at the 1-2-5.
And here are some pics from the episode. [SpoilerTV]
All of the show's cast members are back for season nine, with the possible exception of Sam Witwer (Davis Bloome). [EW]
Here's a sneak peak from the season opener!
EW's Ausiello has seen the final episode, and he says it pits Vivian and Lily against their former synchronized swimming rivals, the Aqua Dolls (Wendy Malick and Nora Dunn). "Inspired silliness ensues." There are Jaws-themed scene transitions, bitchy one-liners, and cameos by Wilson Cruz and Josh Ryan (playing the Aquas' bleach-blond manager.) It's not a totally satisfying end to the series, but Bryan Fuller and co. pieced together a prologue using CG and existing footage. [EW]
Season two strays much further away from the book source material, says Carrie Preston. It's hardly like the book at all. [The Vault]
