'Arrow': 'Broken Dolls' Sees Oliver In Laurel's Crosshairs As Black Canary Makes Her Move
Huffington Post - over 3 years
This week's episode of "Arrow" (Wed., Oct. 23 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW) is titled "Broken Dolls," and judging by the cliffhanger at the end of "Identity," things are likely going to get very messy in Starling City in tonight's installment. We last saw the Arrow (Stephen Amell) surrounded by an entire SWAT team after walking into a trap set by Laurel (Katie Cassidy), and during a recent interview, Amell teased that when the episode begins, "there is no cut, it’s the same scene, and it actually picks up with all the guns on Oliver, and him lowering his bow. That's his only move." Oliver is now caught between a rock and a hard place, eager to make Starling City safer as the vigilante, but clearly still in love with Laurel, who now has a vendetta against his crime-fighting alter-ego in the wake of Tommy's (Colin Donnell) death. Amell admitted that things will come to a head between Laurel and the vigilante fairly soon: "We do resolve Laurel’s mission against the vigilante relatively e ...

'Arrow' Season 2: Take A Look Inside The New Arrowcave!
MTV News - over 3 years
By Charles Webb One of the casualties of the massive earthquake in the season one finale of "Arrow" was the bow-wielding hero's hideout, the Arrowcave. Oliver Queen's (Stephen Amell) combination lab/dojo was a mainstay of the first season--a place for allies Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) and Diggle (David Ramsey) to help Oliver in his mission to combat the conspiracy at the heart of Starling City. But as we detailed yesterday, the vigilante has a new mission, and with that, new digs for his team. We visited the set of the new and updated Arrowcave, which will make its debut tonight in the season two premiere of "Arrow;" and of course, snapped some pics of all the bow-wielding action! Sure, it's not the Batcave, but the updated Arrowcave has a new and improved lab and computer area. Instead of packing up and moving somewhere else in the city, Oliver and the gang have opted to remain underneath the club, albeit with some modifications to what was a previously claustrophobic ...

Welcome Back To 'The O.C.,' Bitch
Huffington Post - over 3 years
It has been a decade since Ryan Atwood (Benjamin McKenzie) had his first entree into life in "The O.C.," bringing fans of teen soap along for a look at life inside the mansions of Newport Beach. The Fox drama, which premiered on August 5, 2003, was filled with envelope-pushing sexual encounters, Juicy Couture jumpsuits, Death Cab for Cutie, trips to T.J. and much, much more. Josh Schwartz was a day shy of 27 when "The O.C." first hit the airwaves, which made him the youngest TV creator ever and probably, one of the only ones who would admit to penning a highly-acclaimed pilot in his boxer shorts. From the real story behind Mischa Barton's departure to the Cohens' original name, and the missed coupling opportunities to the star who didn't even make it onto "The O.C.'s" first poster, read on to see what Schwartz revealed to The Huffington Post while looking back on "The O.C." 10 years after its debut.

'Arrow' Casts Its Black Canary
Huffington Post - over 3 years
"Arrow" has found its Black Canary ... and it's not the Katie you think it is. Actress Caity Lotz is set to play the alter-ego of Dinah Drake Lance on The CW superhero series, The Wrap reports. According to the website, Lotz will recur as the Black Canary on "Arrow's" upcoming second season. She is expected to eventually become a series regular, since her character is a potential love interest for Oliver Queen/Arrow (Stephen Amell). The Black Canary casting news comes as a bit of a surprise to "Arrow" fans who long believed that Katie Cassidy's character Dinah "Laurel" Lance would become the legendary superhero, as she does in the DC Comics franchise. Throughout "Arrow's" first season, there were a few references to Laurel becoming the Black Canary, including the character saying she wore fishnets to a Halloween party (a staple of the Black Canary's costume) and mentioning that her sister Sara had a black canary. The Black Canary character, who possesses the super ...

Are you there, Hollywood? It’s me, Judy Blume
The Palm Beach Post - almost 5 years
It took two decades for Judy Blume to see her book 'Tiger Eyes' adapted for film. (Washington Post file photo) It took Judy Blume two decades to find someone, anyone, who had the passion to make Tiger Eyes, her beloved novel of a young woman’s coming of age through grief, displacement and self-discovery, into a movie. Turns out he was very close by. "I’m always looking for someone with passion, in any (situation) in life, from who to donate money to, to who to trust with your book being adapted into a movie," explains Blume, the famous children’s author of Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret, Blubber, Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing and others. "I needed a person who really had an understanding of it," adds Blume, whose books have guided young readers through issues ranging from racism to divorce to menstruation. "If that person happens to be your grown-up son, then OK." That filmmaker, indeed, was her son, Lawrence Blume, who with his mother will present the big-screen v ...
