"Willa Holland talks Roy and Thea and finding Arrow's lair on season 2"

When you stop and think about it, Thea Queen (Willa Holland) on The CW's Arrow has quite the distant relationships with the men in her life. She lost her father at a young age, and she thought she lost her older brother then, too. He returned home but kept her at more than an arm's length, creating some tension and lots of secrets between them. She rebelled against this-- as any young woman would-- made some bad choices and fell for a bad boy. Roy Harper (Colton Haynes) may be trying to prove his life worthy of saving and clean up Starling City now, but in doing so, he is putting himself and Thea by association in harm's way and keeping secrets from her, too. She fell for a guy who is damaged in many of the same ways her brother is, and now that she has come so far and matured so much in the five months since the earthquake, it may be time for her to clean up both her professional and personal life...

But Astrid won't be pushed out of his life at all, let alone without a fight! ... [MORE

"Smash to get a stage version after all, but for "Hit List," not Marilyn"

Just when you thought NBC's Smash was dead, the most convoluted part of it has been resurrected-- for a live stage show. When Smash was first being developed, producers hoped to actually be able to bring a Marilyn musical to Broadway eventually-- after the show had been airing on NBC for a few successful years and all of the music completed. But Smash had a low-rated, hate-watch filled run which didn't exactly warrant transitioning any of its elements to another medium. Or so we thought. But today we have learned that "Hit List", the other show within the show, is actually coming to New York stages this December! ... [MORE

"Arrow proves two vigilantes are better than one, when Oliver meets Black Canary"

Fans of The CW's Arrow got their first real glimpse at a new vigilante in town-- the Black Canary (Caity Lotz)-- in the second season premiere when she came to Roy's (Colton Haynes) rescue. But soon enough-- like, in two episodes soon-- Oliver (Stephen Amell) himself will be meeting the masked lady... [MORE]
