- Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Connor Jessup calls the Falling Skies Season 2 finale “a nice midpoint in Ben’s storyline”:
“All season long, Ben’s been walking a tightrope between alien and human. The conflict with this character has been which way is he going to fall and there has been forces pulling him in different directions,” he said. “In the finale, you finally figure out which side he’s fallen on. The angst and conflict that has driven him has taken another large step. It’s a nice midpoint in Ben’s storyline.”
- James Wolk spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about the future of USA miniseries Political Animals, noting that while “there are so many places that all these people still have to go,” the finale offers a certain degree of closure:
“As the audience will find, the six episodes will wrap up in a way that I think everyone, in one respect, will feel very fulfilled. And in another respect, perhaps wanting more”.
- ER‘s Goran Visnjic has been cast in ABC’s midseason mob drama Red Widow, Deadline reports. He’ll play Schiller, the mafia mob boss.
