From LA Examiner: Justin Kirk Preps for 'Animal Practice'; Tracy Spiridakos Teases 'Revolution'; 'Major Crimes' Advance Review; What's Stacy Carosi Up To Today?...



The Botwin clan of Weeds are anything but your typical family, though they have proven to stick together through the rough times more than most. As we prepare to say good-bye to them, the family is split apart more than we’ve ever seen them, including when Nancy (Mary-Louise Parker) was in jail. Sure, they may all be living under one roof, but they’re all focused on their own, individual dramas, from Shane (Alexander Gould) starting work as a beat cop, to Andy (Justin Kirk) about to become a dad and therefore looking for a job that is somewhat respectable as well as highly paid enough to support a family of his own.

"Tracy Spiridakos: Prepping for Revolution for years, teases Charlie's journey"

We're not going to lie to you: we have quite the need-hate relationship with technology.

But it's not a nightmare for star Tracy Spiridakos... [MORE]


"TNT’s Major Crimes complicates crime politics even more"

Instead, Major Crimes delivers a series premiere, “Reloaded,” that drops the audience directly into the action of the LAPD and hopes you will keep up... [MORE]


"Family Tools star Leah Remini considers what Stacy Carosi is up to today"

ABC’s newest family comedy, Family Tools, sees Leah Remini’s sitcom return. Though she last grabbed headlines for her personal honesty as co-host of CBS’ daytime talk show, The Talk, Remini admitted to LA TV Insider Examiner that she really was only biding her time with that gig until she could return to scripted comedy. CBS was trying to develop something for her, but when that contract ran out, she turned her attention elsewhere and ended up alongside J.K. Simmons and Kyle Bornheimer in Family Tools... [MORE]
