Infectious Trailer: The Strain Season Two!

Nora, Eph & Fet - 10-04-14

The creepy series The Strain – based on the trilogy by Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan – is poised to return. Judging from FX’s new trailer, it’s going to be darker, creepier and messier than season one. I can’t wait!

Check it out after the jump. The Strain returns this summer.

Archer’s Aisha Tyler Talks Being a Spymom and More!

aisha tyler

Archer’s Lana Kane has had to work through some horrendous missions while pregnant and now, in season six of Archer (Thursdays, FOX, 10/9C), she’s a working mom in a workplace where no one is anywhere near what you might describe as a good babysitter. Even better, this week, she gets to introduce the father of her child, Sterling Archer, to her parents

Last week, a group of bloggers/journalists got to chat with Aisha Tyler about Lana trying to handle life and work as a working mother – and tease the upcoming meeting between Archer and her parents. While we were sitting in our homes/offices, Tyler spoke with us from her car. It was interesting…

Judy Greer’s Still Having A Ball On Archer!

Judy-Cheryl

Judy Greer is practically the definition of a working actor – she’s got 98 credits to her name, beginning with a small role on an Early Edition episode in 1997. Since then, she’s been pretty much a fixture in films big and small, and on television (usually in series that were brilliant but cancelled).

 

Since 2009, she’s voiced everyone’s favorite huffing firebug billionaire receptionist/country-singer-wannabe, Carol/Cheryl/Cherlene on TV’s best animated series, Archer (FX, Thursday, 10/9C). Recently, I had the pleasure of taking part in a conference call Q&A with Greer about what has turned into her longest-running gig. She was, as always, charming and enthusiastic.

Archer’s Matt Thompson Talsk Season Six – Continuity, Drinking, The Baby, Drinking and ISIS No More!

Matt+Thompson

Archer (Thursdays, 10/9C) returns to FX this evening. Earlier I had the opportunity to sit in on a conference call Q&A session with Executive Producer Matt Thompson. Not unlike a lot of folks we talk with, Thompson doesn’t like to give too much away about what’s coming up in his show – but he does have fun talking about behind the scenes stuff (it’s almost awe-inspiring how many guest stars come to the show as a result of the sharing of alcohol at industry parties, for instance).

 

To be fair, Thompson is really good at teasing upcoming events of Archer (he could write tags for Marvel’s SHIELD, no problem). So we get to learn that some favorite characters (Bionic Barry, and sexy/deadly Katya) are returning and that we are finally going to meet Pam’s sister. We also learn about the importance of continuity – and the strange forms it takes.

 

It’s one of the more entertaining Q&As I’ve done. See what I mean following the jump.

FX’s hit series Sons of Anarchy closes down shop tomorrow night (10/9C) for the last time and late last week, Jimmy Smits took part in a conference call Q&A session to talk about the final season of Sons Of Anarchy and how Nero had gone from a character with a few episodes to making it to the end, ‘but maybe not the end end.’

 

Smits, who has several memorable roles over the years – from NYPD Blue’s Det. Bobby Simone to Dexter’s sociopathic Miguel Prado – talked about how he came to SOA and how pleased he was to have made such a substantial contribution to series’ mythology.

Brad Carter chats about FX’s “Sons Of Anarchy”

 

Brad Carter Sons Of Anarchy 10-29-14

FX’s Sons Of Anarchy is back for season 7!  This season begins ten days later with Jax in jail on a parole violation and dealing with the loss of the woman he loved.  He then plans for complete and merciless retribution with the support of the outlaw motorcycle club (MC).  The illegal arms business hidden behind the guise of the automotive shop continues to be driven by the seduction of money, power, and blood. As the last season of this popular show, be prepared for anything.

Jax tries to ally with Ron Tully (Marilyn Manson), a shot caller for Aryan Brotherhood who is currently incarcerated by trying to meet Leland Gruen (Brad Carter), the right hand of Ron Tully.  I had the opportunity to chat with Brad about his current role on “Sons Of Anarchy” and his upcoming role on “Ascension”.
