Alas, FBI Special Agent Kurt Weller. The BLINDSPOT leading character, played by Sullivan Stapleton, has just had his girlfriend Nas (Archie Panjabi) break up with him. On the bright side, in the NBC series’ second season on Wednesday nights, Weller is starting to trust the tattooed woman often known as Jane Doe, played by Jaimie Alexander.

Martin Gero created and is an executive producer on NBC’s BLINDSPOT, which begins its second season Wednesday, September 14. Last season, we were introduced to Jaimie Alexander’s character Jane Doe, an amnesiac covered neck to toes in elaborate tattoos, all interlinked but each with their own secret, hinting at a criminal activity that must be stopped. The most prominent tattoo spells out “Kurt Weller,” which happens to be the name of an FBI agent played by Sullivan Stapleton. The producers promise that Jane Doe’s identity will be revealed almost immediately in Season 2 and that Archie Panjabi of THE GOOD […]Read On »

In NBC’s new series BLINDSPOT, premiering Monday, September 21 at 10 PM, Jaimie Alexander stars as Jane Doe. We meet Janes as she emerges from a duffel bag in the middle of Times Square, naked, amnesiac and covered in elaborate tattoos. The most prominent tattoo is the name of FBI Agent Kurt Weller (Sullivan Stapleton), so even though they’ve never met before (to their knowledge), Kurt and the remarkably physically capable Jane collaborate in working on the mystery surrounding her appearance. Kurt’s FBI boss, Bethany Mayfair, is played by Marianne Jean-Baptiste. This isn’t the actress’ first stint playing U.S. law […]Read On »

In the (so-far) two-season history of MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD, ABC Tuesdays at 9 PM, just about all of the characters have gone through massive changes. Agent Phil Coulson, played by Clark Gregg, has learned that he was actually brought back from the dead courtesy of alien technology; not only that, he’s been appointed Director of the whole S.H.I.E.L.D. organization, courtesy of secretly-alive former Director Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson). Chloe Bennet’s orphan computer hacker Skye has discovered she’s an Inhuman, with the ability to bring buildings down; she’s also found that her father Kal (Kyle MachLachlan) is alive and […]Read On »

Cast: Clark Gregg, Ming-Na wen, Brett Dalton, Chloe Bennet, Elizabeth Henstridge, Iain De Caestecker Writer: Shalisha Francis Director: John Terlesky Network: Airs on ABC Tuesdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: March 11, 2014 Well it took seeing some crazy half alien being used as a miracle cure drug source (as well as perhaps, you know, dying and being brought back to life) in order for Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) to get the idea that maybe S.H.I.E.L.D. aren’t necessarily the good guys here. MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD has taken a long time to get here – like 14 episodes too long […]Read On »

Walt Disney Studios held the U.S. Premiere of MARVEL’S THOR: THE DARK WORLD not so long ago. I’m sorry Assignment X readers that this is late going up, but I had computer problems, which is now fixed, so I hope you still enjoy seeing everything. Unfortunately, Nathan Fillion walked half of the carpet, then went and posed with Zachary Levi and Tom Hiddleston and decided not to walk the rest of the carpet and wouldn’t stop no matter how loud everyone yelled Nathan. Of course, I was at the end where he didn’t pose. The premiere was held at the […]Read On »

Interview: THOR composer Patrick Doyle wields the mighty musical hammer

Thor soundtrack © 2011 Buena Vista Records

Save those puny electronic action scores for mere mortals. For if there’s one composer who’s brought down the symphonic thunder of the composing gods, then his name would be inscribed as Patrick Doyle. Receiving his musical and acting education in his native Scotland, Doyle’s dual artistic threats would strike up a winning collaboration with Kenneth Branagh, whom Doyle beat for an actual billing when both starred in CHARIOTS OF FIRE. Branagh would scantly toil in the background for long, as his theatrical flair allowed him to take a 9 million dollar gamble behind, and in front of the camera with […]Read On »
