'Twilight' Star Christian Serratos on 'Walking Dead's' Rosita: 'She's Feisty' and Carries 2 Pistols and a KnifeYahoo TV19 hrs ago
You might have known her as Angela, one of Bella's friends, in the "Twilight" movies or from her regular roles on "Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide" and "The Secret Life of the American Teenager." But it's a safe bet that her role as Rosita Espinosa, friend to Eugene, lover of Abraham, on "The Walking Dead" will become the most talked-about entry on 23-year-old actress Christian Serratos's résumé. At least, once we get a closer glimpse into exactly how the popular "TWD" comics character is going to fit into the series.

About that: As usual, Serratos isn't allowed to share much about her new gig — she's appeared, briefly, in two episodes so far, and reportedly factors heavily into the March 30 Season 4 finale — but she chatted with Yahoo TV about landing the role on "TWD," about how those short shorts she sports aren't short enough, and about how the show is helping her get over a serious phobia.

As we're reminded in the exclusive AMC video clip above, most of the major characters on "The Walking Dead" are now headed for Terminus, the "sanctuary" where, it's promised by various signs tacked up throughout the Georgia countryside, "all who arrive survive."
But, as has been one of the major themes of the show's fourth season, merely surviving the zombie apocalypse isn't enough, and you certainly can't trust every promise of a safe haven. Just ask the Woodbury citizenry who trusted the Governor … only to be wiped out by him when he attacked the prison.

Terminus, which was first teased in the Season 4 episode "Isolation," when Daryl, Michonne, Bob, and Tyreese heard some mumblings about it on a car radio broadcast, is the destination where Rick, Michonne, Carl, Bob, Maggie, Sasha, Carol, Tyreese, Mika, Lizzie, and Judith are all headed.

"Doctor Who" star Peter Capaldi has his first villain: British actress Keeley Hawes will play Ms. Delphox, a banker who intends to do the Doctor wrong.
Hawes, who currently stars on the BBC2 drama "Line of Duty," will pop up in a Season 8 episode as Delphox, "a powerful out of this world character with a dark secret," according to BBC America.
Says "Who" producer and writer Steven Moffat, "Anyone watching Jed Mercurio's amazing 'Line of Duty' will know that Keeley Hawes is having one hell of year. And now it's about to get even better as she achieves the greatest villainy yet attempted on Doctor Who: She plays a banker."

Who Is the Whole 'Girls' Cast Crushing On? Plus, 7 Other Things We Learned From the TV Academy PanelYahoo TV2 days ago
With just two episodes remaining in Season 3 of "Girls" — and the cast ready to begin working on Season 4 next month — the Television Academy hosted a live panel with series cast members Lena Dunham, Allison Williams, Jemima Kirke, Zosia Mamet, and Andrew Rannells, and executive producer Ilene S. Landress in Los Angeles Thursday evening. Moderator Dave Karger covered everything from how each character was cast and the actors' most memorable storylines on the show to what fans can expect from the end of the season and whether or not we'll ever see a "Girls" movie on the big screen.
Here are eight highlights of the panel:
1. Of the final two episodes of Season 3, Dunham said Marnie will perform, we will see Adam's play, and Adam and Hannah's relationship continues on a rocky path. Also, though the March 23 season finale is titled "Two Plane Rides," no one actually takes a plane ride.
2. Squee alert for Adam fans: there exist photos of a "disoriented" Adam Driver holding Kirke's son, Memphis, on the set, Dunham says.

His co-workers and his wife kicked him to the curb at the end of Season 6 … but new promo pics for the upcoming seventh, and final, season of "Mad Men" suggest Don Draper has managed to find his way back to both.
In a newly-released trio of photos from AMC, Don (Jon Hamm) is shown at an airport with wife Megan (Jessica Pare) and co-worker Peggy (Elisabeth Moss), and on an airplane (first class, no doubt) with fellow ad man Roger (John Slattery).
"Mad Men" creator Matt Weiner told Vulture this week that the air travel photos are ad shots, not photos from episodes, so we shouldn't take them literally in terms of storyline implications.
But, AMC also released a 30-second teaser for the new season that was airplane-themed, and, just for fun, if ever there were a TV leading man most likely to join the mile high club, it is one Donald Francis Draper.

SPOILER ALERT: The recap for the "Alone" episode of "The Walking Dead" contains storyline and character spoilers.
That didn't take long: Beth made that comment last week about how Daryl would miss her when she's gone, and thanks to a honey trap of a house, now she is.
Things worked out better for Sasha, Maggie, and Bob, as Sasha realized the only thing worse than trying to survive the zombie apocalypse is trying to do it alone, a realization she came to before she and her group were permanently disbanded (or dismembered).
The Bob Backstory
Bob was traveling alone, dejected, fashioning makeshift homes for himself, downing bottles of cough syrup, and staring at walkers as they tried furiously to get at him. He didn’t seem especially afraid of walkers, and didn't seem to especially care if he continued to evade them or not.
Vera Farmiga on Portraying Norma Bates: 'I Don't Want to Present a Story That Is Just a Dark Dead End'Yahoo TV8 days ago
Star Vera Farmiga, who earned a lead-actress Emmy nomination for Season 1, says trying to make viewers forget about the movie, and to see Norma as a more fully realized character than she was in the film, continues to be a challenge for the new season.
"For me to get sympathy for Norma is, sometimes with some viewers, a task of herculean proportions," she says. "They come with such reticence and such presuppositions stemming from the original 'Psycho.' That visual of her, just a bag of bones in the basement, just automatically engenders this feeling that she was a bad mother. That she was a wicked, wicked mother of supervillain proportions."

How busy is chef and Food Network star Bobby Flay? So busy that he's talking to us about his new show, "Beat Bobby Flay," from Gato, a Mediterranean restaurant he's opening later in the day in downtown Manhattan. He also recently opened the 18th outpost of his Bobby's Burger Palace, in Las Vegas.
And then there's "Beat Bobby Flay," the new competition series that will find chefs from across the country challenging Flay in a one-on-one cook-off. The twists: His friends — like fellow chefs Scott Conant, Giada De Laurentiis, and Sunny Anderson — are trying to choose the contestants who can beat him, and then he must, on the fly, prepare his version of his opponent's signature dish.
"Beat Bobby Flay," where did the idea come from? It's something I've wanted to do for the last three years, and it finally came to fruition after all the tweaking and brainstorming and conversations.

He wants to fill his father's shoes, and then some, but will John Ross Ewing — aka J.R. Ewing Jr. — be able to wheel and deal his way to the top of the business world without alienating the people who love him, like mom Sue Ellen and wife Pamela, and even the people who tolerate him (like Uncle Bobby and cousin Christopher)?
John Ross's portrayer, Josh Henderson, talked to Yahoo TV about John Ross's motivations and his bold business and personal moves — and how he loves playing John Ross's naughtiest moments.
