The Emmy-winning 41-year-old will play Dr. Ernesto Clemente, a new supervising physician who brings "cutting-edge technology" and a bunch of big ideas to County General. Leguizamo will appear in 12 episodes of the show's 12th season, which premieres on Thursday, October 20.
Leguizamo will appear alongside fellow newcomer Kristen Johnston (3rd Rock from the Sun), who comes to ER in a recurring role as new nurse manager Eve Payton. Eve's intentions are to bring order to the chaotic department, but of course things will not be as easy as she might hope.
In addition to his one-man HBO and stage show Freak, Leguizamo has appeared in movies such as Ice Age, Summer of Sam, and Land of ...Read more
Reaching beyond the grave, and The Twilight Zone, to hype one of its hits for this month's ratings "sweep," NBC has enlisted the late Rod Serling to introduce a 3D episode of its supernatural drama Medium.
The November 21 broadcast of Medium, starring Patricia Arquette as a psychic crime solver, will feature several spooky three-dimensional effects, and the network is distributing millions of 3D glasses, most of them through TV Guide magazine, ahead of the episode.
The most novel element of the broadcast for those viewers without glasses, perhaps, will be the 45-second opening sequence in which Sterling is "reanimated" in an altered film clip taken from The Twilight Zone, the often-creepy sci-fi anthology he hosted on CBS during the 1960s.
"He basically explains to people about the glasses, when to put them on, and ...Read more
In a statement released by NBC this Monday, the network announced that John Stamos (of Full House fame) will drop by the ER set for a two-episode guest stint. He will appear in the role of a Gulf War veteran who is employed as a paramedic while working his way through medical school.
Earlier this year, E! Online columnist Kristin Veitch reported that Stamos would become a permanent character on ER once his ill-rated freshman sitcom Jake in Progress was canceled. The plan was axed, however, when Jake received a last-minute stay of execution from ABC, tying Stamos to another season as New York publicist Jake Phillips.
"I'm a big fan of the show and [executive producer] John Wells, and we have been trying to work together for a ...Read more
NBC has announced it is making a last-minute adjustment to its fall sitcom schedule. Twenty Good Years and 30 Rock will trade places on Wednesday nights, swapping the 8 p.m.-8:30 p.m. time slots.
Both shows are set to premiere on October 11. Originally, Twenty had been scheduled to appear on October 4, with 30 Rock debuting a week later.
Twenty is a modern-day take on The Odd Couple starring 3rd Rock From the Sun alien John Lithgow and Arrested Development's Jeffrey Tambor. The two men disagree on almost eveything in life, except that there isn't enough if it left.
30 Rock is the anticipated sitcom from ex-Saturday Night Live writer Tina Fey. The show revolves around the antics at an SNL-like sketch comedy show, and stars Rachel Dratch, Tracy Morgan, Jane Krakowski, and ...Read more
One of the most highly anticipated television DVD releases is finally here! Well, sort of. What's being sold exclusively through Best Buy beginning July 26 is the UK version of the boxed set. The main difference between these episodes and what we've seen on the Sci-Fi Channel is that the episodes here feature a different opening than those in the US, as these are the versions that have been shown on SkyOne in the UK. This set has been previously available in the UK, but it has now been formatted so that it's compatible with DVD players in North America. The four discs here contain all 13 episodes as well as deleted scenes.
The remake of Battlestar Galactica has been better than anyone had any reason to believe it would be. First of all, the actors and actresses are fantastic ...Read more
