Wednesday, December 1 by

Dani Pudi plays the character on “Community” who provides most of the show’s self-referential meta humor. So it makes sense that Abed is responsible for a stop-motion animated episode in the tradition of the Rankin Bass specials.

‘Sons of Anarchy’ Actress Winter Ave Zoli
Thursday, November 25 by

A former stage actress, ballerina, and one-time resident of the Czech Republic, Winter Ave Zoli is best known these days as the hard-headed porn star sweetheart of bearded biker outlaw Opie Winston on FX’s leading series "Sons of Anarchy." And if you have a hard time picturing this tousle-haired beauty as the type who’d get down on camera for a quick couple hundred, it’s all the better; the contrast between Zoli’s disarming look of wide-eyed innocence and the seedy lifestyle played out by her on-screen alter ego is exactly what makes her character a thrilling fixture in the series.
A word from Winter: "Lyla and Opie are drawn to each other because they both have this sort of sweet sadness."
More pics of Winter after the jump…

Fox Developing Ghost Cops and Ghost Lawyers Show
Wednesday, November 17 by

Director Gore Verbinski and writer Terry Rossio are turning the crime procedurial on its ass. They’re putting a supernatural twist on the cop/legal drama, setting up “Magical Law” at Fox. The title makes me think more of wizards than ghosts, not that that would be any less ridiculous.
