Actor Robert Hays has a huge amount of film and television credits, including the title role as an alien with a half-human son in the TV series version of STARMAN. However, it’s likely that the Maryland native will always be best-known and loved for his role as disaster-plagued Captain Ted Stryker in the comedy classic film AIRPLANE! and AIRPLANE II: THE SEQUEL. Hays has once again taken to the unfriendly skies as an airplane captain, this one named Bob Wilson, in Syfy’s monster hit SHARKNADO 2: THE SECOND ONE. For those who still don’t know, like last year’s SHARKNADO, the …Read On »

In TNT’s new series LEGENDS, Wednesdays at 9 PM, Sean Bean stars as Martin Odum, an FBI agent whose long-term deep-cover assignments call for complex false identities known as “legends.” Morris Chestnut costars as FBI agent Tony Rice, who is with the division of transportation security. Due to some security camera footage, and because the higher-ups don’t want to “out” Martin, Tony believes Martin may have stabbed a man to death on a train platform and breaks the rules to investigate the truth. Chestnut’s most recent feature film outing, 2013’s THE BEST MAN HOLIDAY, saw the Southern California-born actor reprising …Read On »

Plenty of creative people have their own production companies. Filmmaker Robert Rodriguez, of EL MARIACHI, FROM DUSK TILL DAWN, DESPERADO, GRINDHOUSE, SIN CITY, MACHETE, the SPY KIDS films and more, has been one of the stars of American independent cinema for decades. Rodriguez already has his own Troublemaker Studios in Austin, Texas. Now Rodriguez has branched out to having his own cable television network, El Rey. El Rey continues to showcase the kinds of movies and TV shows Rodriguez loves – martial arts films, action flicks, reruns of the original STARSKY AND HUTCH and DARK ANGEL – but it also …Read On »

Composer Brian Tyler gets busy with scoring TEENAGE MUTANTS NINJA TURTLES, EXPENDABLES 3 and INTO THE STORM – Interview

When it comes to musical testosterone, Brian Tyler’s work is the equivalent of a soundtrack Stairmaster playing at top speed. Whether he’s scoring Viking gods, international speed racers or not-so over-the-hill brothers in arms, Tyler’s dynamically percussive rhythms blast multiplex speakers with maximum impact, his mighty cues throttling from one explosive crescendo to the next. But while Tyler’s action-centric scores are all about energetic attitude, he rocks out in a way that shows his old-school understanding for the importance of themes, let alone melody. It’s exactly this dynamic way of incorporating an orchestra with cutting-edge chords that’s made Tyler into …Read On »

THE ALMIGHTY JOHNSONS has already shot and aired three seasons in New Zealand, but its first season just started airing on Syfy Channel in July, Fridays at 10 PM.

More, Axl’s three brothers are also incarnations of Norse gods. Their powers aren’t all that powerful yet, but they will be if Axl can complete a quest. If he doesn’t complete it, they all die and possibly the world will come to an end. …Read On »

Complications abound in Season 2 of FX’s drama THE BRIDGE, Wednesdays at 10 PM. The series was developed for U.S. television by Elwood Reid & Meredith Stiehm, based on the Danish BRON, but this year, THE BRIDGE diverges greatly from its source material. In Season 1 of THE BRIDGE, Demian Bichir’s character, Mexican police detective Marco Ruiz, suffered the loss of his son at the hands of his murderous ex-partner. Marco’s quest for revenge has caused him to make a deal with one of Ciudad Juarez’s biggest crime lords. To hold up his end of the agreement, Marco must return …Read On »

SHARKNADO 2: THE SECOND ONE star Judah Friedlander takes a bite out of sharks

Judah Friedlander spent seven seasons playing Frank Rossitano on NBC’s 30 ROCK. Since NBC and Syfy Channel have the same parent company, NBC/Universal, it’s perhaps not totally surprising that the Maryland-born actor/comedian – whose many other credits include the films AMERICAN SPLENDOR, MEET THE PARENTS and THE WRESTLER – wound up in Syfy Channel’s SHARKNADO 2: THE SECOND ONE. However, as Friedlander explains at a party thrown by NBC/Universal Television for the press, it wasn’t a case of anybody at either network approaching him about the sequel, which concerns a Sharknado hitting New York City. “I went to them. I …Read On »

In 2013’s surprise hit SHARKNADO, Ian Ziering played heroic Fin Shepard, who almost single-handedly – with a chainsaw in that hand – saved Los Angeles from a tornado full of sharks. In SHARKNADO 2: THE SECOND ONE, which premieres on Syfy Channel Wednesday, July 30, Ziering is back as Fin. Fin and reconciled ex-wife April Wexler (Tara Reid, also reprising her original SHARKNADO role) are on their way to New York City to promote April’s book about surviving the previous year’s event. However, they don’t even land in the Big Apple before they’re once again grappling with storm-borne Great Whites, …Read On »

A strange coincidence has landed Judd Hirsch at Syfy Channel’s Beverly Hilton poolside screening of SHARKNADO 2: THE SECOND ONE for the benefit of the Television Critics Association press tour. The sequel to last summer’s surprise Syfy hit is being projected onto a gigantic blank wall next to the pool prior to its Syfy Channel premiere on Wednesday, July 30. The atmosphere is deliberately drive-in theatre, with couches decorated to look like car seats and popcorn and soda stations (as well as regular drive-in dinner fare). Hirsch was nominated for an Supporting Actor Oscar for his work in ORDINARY PEOPLE, …Read On »

THE STRAIN creator Guillermo del Toro on his new nasty vamp series

FX’s new series THE STRAIN, Sundays at 10 PM, brings horror back to the vampire mythology. Forget the charmers of TRUE BLOOD, BEING HUMAN, et al, or even Bela Lugosi – these things are hideous, terrifying and breeding like Ebola virus. Worse, they’re in New York City. Center for Disease Control researchers Ephraim Goodweather (Corey Stoll) and Nora Martinez (Mia Maestro) want to combat the plague, but so far aren’t sure how to do so; pawn shop owner Abraham Setrakian (David Bradley), who’s had experience with the creatures before, and city exterminator Vasily Fet (Kevin Durand) may have some ideas. …Read On »
