Here is my list of supporting actors and actresses in television right now that I think deserve a shot at a leading role. Feel free to nominate your own favorites in the comments.
At times, Supernatural's ninth season has felt like a show groping for things it hasn't done before. (Sam already got addicted to demon blood and lost his soul, so why not have an angel possess him?) There have been odd decisions, like that attempted spin-off. But at least the season finale was a darn solid ending.
The meat of last night's Supernatural was a "buddy-comedy" adventure in which Crowley, the King of Hell, replaces Sam as Dean's partner in crime. The result is awesomeness, the likes of which this show hasn't served up in ages. Spoilers ahead...
Syfy is apparently racing ahead at speed Standard by Six with its remake of Blake's 7, the classic British show about criminals who join a political prisoner to fight an evil space empire. This show will live and die based on the character of Avon, and there's one actor who's uniquely qualified to play him.
With his recent appearance on Doctor Who, Mark Sheppard cemented his place as science fiction's greatest character actor. But we've been loving Sheppard for years...and we assembled this video of every last one of his scifi roles to prove his awesomeness.
Doctor Who comes back on Easter, and the opening two-parter sounds like one of the most ambitious things the show's ever done — including the first ever proper filming in the United States.
We've seen Doctor Who's time-wimey take on "A Christmas Carol", and now it's time to look ahead to season six. Let's examine the new trailer and learn what's in store for the Doctor and his friends. Spoilers and speculation ahead!
The inevitable (and awesome) has finally happened: Mark Sheppard, the man behind Badger/Romo Lampkin/Benedict Valda/Crowley/Manservant Neville/every other shifty but strangely lovable science fiction character of the last decade is playing a "huge role" on the next series of Doctor Who.
Last night's Warehouse 13 was a Pete-centric episode, which could have been pretty horrifying. But it was actually a pretty fun episode — especially the first half, in which we got to see Pete being both paranoid and competent. Spoilers!
We caught up with actor Mark Sheppard at Comic Con, and he explained why Battlestar Galactica's Romo Lampkin really was a good guy — and why Romo's pet dog was the ancestor of all other dogs on Earth.
The Middleman, one of the greatest and craziest shows ever to bludgeon television with awesomeness, finally got the finale it deserves. The cast read the unaired finale script, and it was like the greatest rock concert ever.
Now that the news we posted about Dollhouse's mysterious Alpha is looking more like a rumor, Joss Whedon has let slip another crucial detail: the actor who plays Alpha may, himself, be a huge spoiler.
