On NBC’s CHUCK, now in its fourth season on Mondays at 8 PM, Zachary Levi may play the title spy with Intersect-given superpowers, but it’s Chuck’s brother-in-law Devon Woodcomb, played by Ryan McPartlin, who is nicknamed – without irony – Captain Awesome. There’s good reason for this: Devon is the perfect doctor, friend, boyfriend-turned-husband and now dad to baby Clara (Chuck’s niece). He’s also pretty awesome in appearance, which the other characters remark upon with regularity. Chicago native McPartlin seems to take everything in stride as easily as Devon does, sounding happy and relaxed as he talks about the character […]Read On »

Stars: Amanda Seyfried, Gary Oldman, Billy Burke, Virginia Madsen, Julie Christie, Lukas Haas Writer: David Johnson Director: Catherine Hardwicke Distributor : Warner Bros. Release Date: March 11, 2011 The Big Bad Wolf in RED RIDING HOOD is not the real villain of the piece, but the script itself by David Johnson – a messy, TWILIGHT-infused Tween disaster directed by TWILIGHT’s Catherine Hardwicke. So desperate to match TWILIGHT’s main beats (innocent girl enticed by a Big Bad), RED RIDING HOOD blows every opportunity to be its own movie. Hell, Shiloh Fernandez who plays Huntsman Peter opposite red riding hood Valerie (Amanda […]Read On »
