  • 'Secrets and Lies' Star Juliette Lewis on Playing an Unsmiling Cop and Working With Ryan Phillippe (Again)

    Carrie Bell at Yahoo TV 2 hrs ago

    A lot changes in 15 years. The last time Juliette Lewis and Ryan Phillippe crossed career paths, on a bloody kidnapping caper called The Way of the Gun , she was the victim and he was packing heat.

    Now, for Secrets and Lies , Lewis is the heat and it's Phillippe who winds up in her cross hairs. You can get a tiny taste of the shift in dynamics in this exclusive clip from Sunday's premiere of ABC's 10-episode remake of an Australian series about a cul de sac turned inside out after a child is murdered and the neighborhood father who found the body becomes the prime suspect.

    Lewis spoke with Yahoo TV exclusively from her home in New York about reteaming with her tormentor from 2000, who she says has "gotten better with age"; the "tough challenge" of being detached detective Andrea Cornell; shooting (literally and figuratively) in North Carolina; and why she is so excited for audiences to watch this "slow-building whodunit with a ton of human drama."

    Secrets and Lies premieres Sunday, March 1 with a two-hour special from 9 to 11 p.m. on ABC.

  • 'Fresh Off the Boat' Sneak Peek: Eddie Gets Crushed

    Victoria Leigh Miller at Yahoo TV 4 hrs ago

    Things are looking up for the Huangs. Well, at least two of them. On the upcoming episode of ABC's Fresh Off the Boat, Louis and Jessica (Randall Park and Constance Wu), have finally scored an invite to the country club, but their tween son, Eddie (Hudson Yang), is thinking more about impressing his girl-next-door crush Nicole (Luna Blaise).

    In this exclusive sneak peek from the episode "Showdown at the Golden Saddle," Eddie opens the front door and feigns surprise that his fantasy girlfriend has stopped over. Unfortunately, the Casanova Kid's tweenage dream turns into a full-on nightmare after his parents rattle off babysitting instructions to Nicole, whom they've actually hired to babysit him and his brothers. That's right, babysit.

    "What is happening?" a mortified Eddie asks as his parents tell his dream girl about his gentle bowels and favorite Flintstones Chewables flavor.

    Fresh Off the Boat airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on ABC.

  • Leonard Nimoy, Actor, Director, and 'Star Trek' Icon, Dies at 83

    Ethan Alter at Yahoo TV 4 hrs ago

    I Am Not Spock proclaimed the title of Leonard Nimoy's 1975 autobiography, in which the veteran actor tried to distinguish himself from his most iconic role, as Star Trek 's emotionless half-human, half-Vulcan science officer. Twenty years later, he published a follow-up entitled, I Am Spock , in which the actor-director warmly embraced his pointy-eared alter ego. Like it or not, Nimoy — who passed away on Feb. 27 at the age of 83 from end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease — was Spock to generations of sci-fi fans, so much so that when J.J. Abrams rebooted the franchise in the 2009 blockbuster, Nimoy was the one original cast member he made sure to bring back.

  • 'Parks and Recreation' Exclusive: Watch the Cast Wrap the Series Finale [Video]

    Warning: Fans who teared up during Parks and Recreation 's supremely satisfying series finale will definitely get misty watching the seven-minute look at the making of the episode above.

    There are some laughs, of course: Retta leads a lunchtime dance party in the makeup trailer, Jim O'Heir gets dressed as the coffee pot ("This is fitting, yeah this is how this should end"), and Rob Lowe uses one last "literally." But the overall mood is best expressed by Adam Scott: "I feel like it's not particularly emotional yet, but everyone's on the brink. It feels like an international incident is about to go down."

    It'll likely happen for you when executive producer Michael Schur announces series wraps for the actors individually. (If you find yourself applauding along with the cast and crew, know you're not the only one.)

     

  • 'How to Get Away With Murder' Recap: The Honesty of Liars

    Price Peterson at Yahoo TV 6 hrs ago

    It's only OK to populate your story with unlikable people if they suffer for their flaws. Additionally, as David Fincher proved with Gone Girl (and every movie he's ever made), visual flair goes a long way in making you forget that you're not actually rooting for anybody. If the first season of the similarly stylish-and-sociopathic How to Get Away With Murder could be fairly faulted for something, it's that most of its characters are stuck firmly in dick-mode, if only because that's the most efficient use of their screentime. To be frank (lower-case 'f'), we STILL don't know tons about these characters' lives, even after inviting them into our living rooms for the past few months. But what we do know is that even among narcissists and sociopaths there is the possibility for redemption, and therein lies one of HTGAWM 's most consistent pleasures: Watching unlikable people struggle to be good.

    I mean, what's a more powerful aphrodisiac than suspicion of murder?

  • 'Penny Dreadful': Meet the Dark Forces Behind Season 2

    Ethan Alter at Yahoo TV 7 hrs ago

    The first year of Showtime's 19th century monster mash-up, Penny Dreadful , was overflowing with vampires. Season 2, which launches on May 3, is all about the witches. A pair of new Penny Dreadful posters spotlight the villains, Evelyn Poole (Helen McCrory) and her daughter, Hecate (Sarah Greene), who will be casting a spell on viewers — not to mention the show's characters, including Reeve Carney's eternally youthful Dorian Gray, whose screaming visage adorns the third poster.

    Eagle-eyed fans will no doubt recognize Evelyn as the spiritualist Madame Kali, who presided over a memorable séance in the second episode of Season 1. This year, she'll let her powers off their leash. "She becomes the antagonist for not only [Eva Green's] Vanessa but all the characters," executive producer John Logan explained at the Television Critics Association winter press tour. "She believes she is on the side of the angels, even though she's serving the devil." Hey, like the song says, you gotta serve, somebody .

    Season 2 of Penny Dreadful premieres May 3 at 10 p.m. on Showtime.

  • 'House of Cards' Season Premiere Review: How Low Can Frank Go?

    Ken Tucker at Yahoo TV 7 hrs ago

    If the new season of House of Cards seems, initially, slightly less engaging than its two predecessors, it's only because people in power tend to be less dramatically engaging than those grasping for it. And power — nothing less than the presidency of the United States — is what our anti-hero Frank Underwood has achieved. Yes, Kevin Spacey's drawling, camera-glaring manipulator is now a mendacious Commander in Chief. In the unlikely event that we've forgotten that Frank is an unforgiving, shriveled soul, series creator Beau Willimon has Frank pee on his father's grave in the opening moments of the season premiere.

    But Underwood is also under siege: low public approval ratings, an intransigent Congress, a stalled jobs package — why, the man can barely find the time to go for a sweat-breaking jog with the First Lady, Claire (a Robin Wright so coiled to strike, she's starting to look like a cobra with a blond bob).

  • 'The Big Bang Theory' Recap: Penny and Sheldon Fall in Love With Each Other?!

    Kimberly Potts at Yahoo TV 14 hrs ago

    Warning: This recap contains storyline and character spoilers for "The Intimacy Acceleration" episode of The Big Bang Theory .

    For the most reliably funny characters on The Big Bang Theory , you can't beat Sheldon and Howard. But when it comes to the most reliable comedy duo on the series, forget Sheldon and Leonard, or even Howard and the dearly departed Mrs. Wolowitz (RIP). Nope, the title belongs to Sheldon and Penny.

    Remember the one where Penny procures for Sheldon the DNA of his hero, Leonard Nimoy (who had wiped his mouth on a napkin at the Cheesecake Factory where Penny worked)? And the one where Sheldon helps Penny launch her Penny Blossoms barrette business? Or when Sheldon had to help a naked Penny get dressed when she fell in her bathtub? And, a true gem, when Sheldon bans mooch Penny from the apartment, resulting in a game of one-upmanship that, ultimately, sees Penny one-up her alleged intellectual superior? All great episodes, and all because of the Sheldon/Penny adventures that are front and center.

  • 'House of Cards': The F.U. Plots That Led to a Presidency

    Kimberly Potts at Yahoo TV 1 day ago

    SPOILER ALERT: Storyline and character details for Seasons 1 and 2 of House of Cards ahead.

    F(rank) U(nderwood) plots, that is. When Season 2 ended, the Machiavellian politician had maneuvered himself right into the Oval Office, with two seasons' worth of lies, backstabbing, mayhem, and murder. As we prepare to binge-watch another season of Frank's scheming with the Season 3 House of Cards premiere on Feb. 27, here's a look back at his greatest hits (jobs) along his path to the presidency.

    And the Plotting Begins… House Majority Whip Francis "Frank" Underwood helps former Colorado Gov. Garrett Walker win the White House, with a deal in place that POTUS Walker will appoint Frank as his secretary of state upon taking office. It took two full seasons — much more on that follows — but woe to the man who dares to cross ol' F.U. Walker's reneging on the deal is what sets the machinations of the entire series in motion.

  • 8 More Classic Cartoons That Need to Be Revived After 'Duck Tales'

    Ethan Alter at Yahoo TV 1 day ago

    It's been a big week for TV fans that spent much of the '80s and early '90s glued to afterschool and Saturday morning cartoons. On Wednesday, Disney XD announced that they would be bringing back fresh episodes of the 1987-1990 favorite Duck Tales starting in 2017. Not to be outdone, Netflix revealed that new versions of Inspector Gadget (1983-1986) and Danger Mouse (1981-1992) will be coming to the streaming service in the near future. The timing couldn't be better, of course, as the kids who watched those show in their original runs now have kids of their own. And there are still plenty of shows from that era that are just waiting for a comeback.

    Here are eight cartoons that aired alongside Danger Mouse , Inspector Gadget , and Duck Tales between 1981-1992 that we’d most like to see again. Are any of your personal favorites missing? Let us know in the comments.

     

    OK, cartoon fans — what did we miss?
