Damian Lewis won the Golden Globe last night for Best Actor, in his role as Brody on ‘Homeland’. (Which he totally deserved.) Without spoiling too much before the jump…. Damian’s character was definitely left hanging in the season finale. Will he be back for season 3? Click on more to find out!! (more…)
I’m so bummed! ‘United States of Tara’ was by far one of my favorite shows!! Darnit!
At least they’ve renewed ‘Nurse Jackie’. If they would have canceled both – I’d have no reason to keep Showtime! Still, major bummer!
Showtime is losing some of its personality: The pay cabler has canceled United States of Tara.
A Showtime rep confirms to TVLine that the Emmy winning dramedy’s current third season — set to conclude on June 20 — will be its last.
On the bright side, the cable net has renewed Edie Falco’s Nurse Jackie for a fourth season.
Tara, which netted leading lady Toni Collette numerous accolades including an Emmy and a Golden Globe, has been averaging just north of 300K viewers a week this season — down from 560K for Season 2. By comparison, Jackie has been attracting 762K viewers.
Showtime’s serial killer drama ‘Dexter’ has landed a new star. No word on the role he’ll play, but Colin Hanks has signed on to join season six!
Traditionally, the show has had one main villain that its titular character — the disturbed, justice-seeking medical examiner/serial killer Dexter — battles until the final episode. Past adversaries have included Jimmy Smits and John Lithgow, whose performance helped the series reach new heights and earned him an Emmy.
As TV Line notes, however, the show’s executive producer has said that there will not be one core opponent in the upcoming season, so there’s no clear clue as to who Hanks could play.
Hanks, who guest starred on “Mad Men,” as a Brooklyn priest, starred in the police show, “The Good Guys,” with Bradley Whitford; it was cancelled after one season. He’ll feature in the upcoming film, “Lucky,” to be released later this year.
This isn’t the only news out of “Dexter,” today; Showtime released a new teaser trailer, which you can see below. Needless to say, they’re hyping the upcoming season pretty heavily.
Fresh off her turn in the summer blockbuster film “Sex and the City 2,” Emmy® and Tony® Award winner Cynthia Nixon has just signed on as a guest star in four episodes of the new Showtime dark comedy series The Big C, starring Laura Linney. Nixon will play “Rebecca,” Linney’s flaky, long-lost college roommate who re-enters her life and shakes things up in a wild way. The 13-episode series is currently shooting in Stamford, Connecticut for an August 16th at 10:30p PT/ET premiere, immediately following WEEDS.
Okay can we take a minute and talk about her extensions? How did I miss this picture when it came out!? She showed up with this doll hair woven onto her head at the London premiere of SATC2 back in May.
