We at ASSIGNMENT X know that absolutely nothing fictional can match this year’s election cycle for sheer horror. However, we’ve done our best to find an interview about a reasonably scary show to fit the national mood. In Fox Network’s Friday-night series THE EXORCIST, Alan Ruck plays Henry Rance. Henry sustained brain damage in a car accident, but he’s got much bigger problems. Casey (Hannah Kasulka), one of Henry’s two teenaged daughters, is demonically possessed. Meanwhile, Henry’s devoted and devout wife Angela (Geena Davis) turns out to have been keeping quite a secret. In other words, Henry is coping with […]Read On »

David Mazouz [pronounced Da-VEED Ma-ZOOZ] is now in his third season of playing the young Bruce Wayne on Fox Network’s GOTHAM, Mondays at 8 PM. For those who are somehow totally unfamiliar with DC Comics mythology, Bruce will grow up to be Batman. He’s already meeting youthful versions of his future adversaries, including Oswald Cobblepot/the Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor), Edward Nygman/the Riddler (Cory Michael Smith) and, perhaps most significantly, not-yet-Catwoman Selina Kyle (Camren Bicondova), a street-smart thief who is Bruce’s age. This season, Mazouz is playing two roles – there’s Bruce, and then there’s an unworldly, pain-resistant copy of Bruce, […]Read On »

In Season 3 of GOTHAM, Mondays on Fox Network, Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) discovers he has a lookalike with a very odd background, the heroic Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) has gone from being an upright police detective to a cranky bounty hunter and Oswald Cobblepot/the Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor) is running for mayor.

In the series THE EXORCIST, forty years have passed since the events that we saw in the 1973 film, based on William Peter Blatty’s novel (we see a news clipping that […]Read On »
