Morena Baccarin On Short List For Avengers!

Morena Baccarin jessica lucas cobie smulders Mary Elizabeth Winstead

Morean Baccarin [V, Firefly] is among the actors shortlisted to play Nick Fury’s ‘sidekick’ – the word used by Samuel L. Jackson to describe the character on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Others on the list include: Jessica Lucas [Cloverfield], Cobie Smulders [How I Met your Mother] and Mary Elizabeth Winstead [Scott Pilgrim vs. The World].

Initial speculation was that the character for which they are testing was The Wasp/Janet Van Dyne, but with Jackson’s revelation it seems more likely that the character could be Contessa Valentina De Fontaine, fury’s long-time confident and fellow S.H.I.E.L.D. operative.

Whatever the case, given that Baccarin has worked with Avengers’ director Joss Whedon before, she might have an edge in the casting process.

TELEVISION REVIEW: V – Welcome to the War: Is It Getting Intense in Here or Is It Just Me?

V vs. Erica

It’s been a while since we saw an original episode of V and, after a better-than-average clip show to bring us up to date, the series returns this evening [ABC, 10/9C]. Welcome to the War picks up with a number of plot threads that were left dangling off the proverbial cliff way back before the Winter Olympics – and resolves them in manners both expected and… not so much.

TV Recap: V: There Really Isn’t Normal Anymore!

Father Jack & Erica

The second episode of V opens literally seconds after the conclusion of the premiere with Father Jack and Erica sitting on that roof. A V shuttle flies by and the follow it to the scene of the underground’s meeting. The aliens are cleaning up – removing all the bodies, including Erica’s late partner, Dale’s. Erica calls 911 from a nearby payphone [we still have those?] but the call is intercepted by the V’s who sent a flying metal globe after them. As it closes in, it sprouts nasty-looking spikes, but Erica destroys it with a major league swing of an improvised club. She and Father Jack go home. They can’t take the V’s on directly.

TV Recap: V; There is No More Normal; Cue The Lizard Men!

Anna's Team

What a morning! FBI Counter Terrorism Agent Erica Evans [Elizabeth Mitchell] awakens to a rumble that might be taken to be the harbinger of an earthquake and discovers her son, Tyler [Logan Huffman], hasn’t been home all night. The rumble intensifies as she calls him on his cell – he answers in a hospital, where he’s been treated for bruises from an accident. Elsewhere, Father Jack Landry [Joel Gretsch] is talking with the wheelchair-bound Roy [Stefan Arngrim] and Ryan Nichols [Morris Chestnut] is buying an engagement ring and wondering if getting down on one knee is too corny [“A classic, responds the jeweller. “Respect the knee”]. TV anchor Chad Decker is climbing out of the shower as the morning loop of his late night newscast is being broadcast. [I don’t have to tell you that there are big honkin’ spoilers throughout, right?]

Look Wa-a-a-a-ay Up!

V [ABC, Tuesdays, 8/7C] begins with an early morning rumble that awakens FBI Counter Terrorism Agent Erica Evens [Elizabeth Mitchell, Lost] to the discovery that her son, Tyler [Logan Huffman] hasn’t been home all night. Father Jack Landry [Joel Gretsch, The 4400] chats with the wheelchair-bound Roy [Stefan Arngrim] by the entrance to his church, and so on. In another home, anchor Chad Decker [Scott Wolf] reads the news on TV – clearly on a loop – as he also steps out of his shower. People are buying engagement rings, eating breakfast, and so on… Life is proceeding pretty much normally, even through the rumble, until an ominous shadow glides overhead – and an enormous alien craft moves into place overhead.
