A Reign Community
Thursday 9:00 PM on The CW


SOFTCORE ON THE CW

... The same show that inspired our TV's Best Masturbation Moments list at the beginning of the 2013-2014 TV season is now making headlines once again with the news that Reign will release a "sexier" cut of tomorrow night's big royal wedding episode, "Consummation," which The CW will post online after the broadcast version has aired. Apparently it contains two racy sex scenes that the network's Standards & Practices department said were too hot for TV (but that are probably pretty tame for the internet). One scene occurs at the beginning of the hour, while the other closes it out and features Adelaide Kane's Mary Queen of Scots, who will be forced to choose between Francis (Toby Regbo) and Bash (Torrance Coombs). The "uncensored" cut of the episode will be posted on The CW’s website on Friday morning, you know, in case you care. Bonus news: Future episodes of the drama will include a character dying during sex and a threesome. LOL this show. [EW]


BUSINESS TIME

... If you're like me and you separate your television viewing habits into two categories—Lee Pace Shows and Not Lee Pace Shows—you should know that Lee Pace stars in AMC's upcoming computer-pioneering drama Halt & Catch Fire, which finally has a premiere date! Mark your homemade Lee Pace calendars for June 1 at 10pm, Pace-ties! (Is that a thing? If it wasn't, it is now!) [AMC via press release]

... Someday very soon, we're all going to have to come to terms with the fact that Psych is ending. Today is not that day. Today is the day when I tell you that Kevin Pereira (Attack of the Show) has been tapped to host Psych After Pshow, the one-hour live Q&A with the series' cast and creators that will air following the series finale on March 26 at 10pm. Pysch-Os can enter to win tickets to the event on USA's website, and will be encouraged to submit personal video questions to the cast. [USA via press release]

... HBO has opted not to move forward with David Milch's (Deadwood) new drama pilot The Money. The project starred Brendan Gleeson and dealt with wealth and corruption among America's elite. Keep trying, Milch. Maybe after Justified ends in 2015, you can snag Timothy Olyphant for a new pilot. Maybe also hire John Hawkes and Ian McShane. I'd watch it. [Deadline]

... Fox has already ordered a third season of MasterChef Junior even though production on Season 2, which was ordered in December, hasn't even begun. Calm down, Fox, you're looking a little bit like the desperate dweeb who calls a girl 30 seconds after dropping her off at home. Seasons 2 and 3 will now film simultaneously this spring. [TV Line]

... Go ahead and file this one in the "Things We Don't Need/Want" column: TLC has ordered a new reality series starring former King of Queens star and The Talk cohost Leah Remini. The entire basis of the series is that you can take the girl out of Brooklyn, but you can't take the Brooklyn out of the girl. Yawn. [TLC via press release]

...  VH1, which is apparently not content to let MTV have a monopoly on really horrible reality TV, has ordered four new unscripted series. The first, This Is Hot 97, debuts March 31 and goes behind the scenes of NYC's HOT 97 radio station. The second is White Girls Of Rap, which will definitely not be starring yours truly, although they asked me several times. It follows five up-and-coming white female rappers as they attempt to establish credibility in the industry (my credibility cost $2.75 at a shop on the Venice boardwalk). I ♥ Nick Carter (literally with the heart and everything) will follow Backstreet Boy Nick Carter as he prepares to get married—presumably not to himself, but that title is misleading. And we all know it won't ever be able to match the hot mess that was House of Carters, so why bother? And lastly, Swab Stories—hold on, I just threw up—follows Jared Rosenthal, the owner of “Who’s Your Daddy,” a mobile DNA testing service in NYC. [Deadline]

... HBO and Game of Thrones have teamed up with people claiming to be musical professionals to release Catch The Throne: The Mixtape, which is, as you've probably guessed, a Game of Thrones-themed mixtape. The album includes tracks from Wale, Big Boi, Common, and Daddy Yankee, in addition to songs from newcomers like Snow Tha Product, Bodega Bamz, Magazeen and more. I literally have no idea what I just typed. Are those people? Are those band names? Are those species? Am I old and out of touch? (At least I know the answer that that last one.) The entire album will be available to download for free from Soundcloud beginning this Friday, March 7. [HBO via press release]

... Oprah is teaming up with David Simon, creator of shows like The Wire and Treme, for a new HBO miniseries about Martin Luther King, Jr. The six-hour series is an adaptation of Taylor Branch's Pulitzer Prize-winning trilogy America: In the King Years. According to Simon, however, it's still a ways off, as he's currently working on another project for HBO, which will be announced shortly. [Deadline / Baltimore Sun]

... Conan O'Brien will host the MTV Movie Awards for the first time on Sunday, April 13 at 9pm ET/PT. Nominations will be announced Thursday, March 6. [Variety]


CASTING NEWS

... Former Weeds star Mary-Louise Parker has officially joined NBC's new pilot Feed Me. The single-camera comedy follows a dysfunctional family tied to each other by the restaurant they own together. [Deadline]

... Patricia Arquette, who won an Emmy in 2005 for Medium and enjoyed a guest-stint on Boardwalk Empire last season, has joined the cast of CSI's newest spin-off. The backdoor pilot will debut later this spring as part of CSI's regular season, and is set at FBI’s Cyber Crime Division, where Arquette's character, Avery Ryan, is the special agent in charge. [EW]

... Lindsay Lohan has booked a guest spot on 2 Broke Girls, which, yeah, sounds about right. Lohan will play a bride-to-be who hires Max and Caroline to make her wedding cake. The episode is slated to air April 14, which will also be the first 2 Broke Girls episode to air in the time period that's been reserved for How I Met Your Mother for the last several years. [CBS via press release]

... The CW has already brought to life "Sexy Nostradamus" (via today's News Briefs headline act, Reign) so maybe it's not very surprising that the network has cast "Hot Jesus" from The Bible in its upcoming sci-fi pilot The Messengers. Diogo Morgado will play a character named The Man in the project about a group of strangers who all die after a mysterious object crashes on Earth, only to eventually wake up and find out they have to stop the Apocalypse. If I ever die and then return, the first and only thing I want to hear is, "Here's some coffee and also some whiskey!" Not, "Help us, Kaitlin, you're our only hope of saving the human race." Because if that's the case, the world is f*cked. [E! Online]

... NBC's Constantine pilot, which is based on the comic book character John Constantine and has been in development since September, is finally getting around to doing some casting. Lucy Griffiths, who's familiar to American audiences for her role as Nora on True Blood, and to U.K. audiences as Lady Marian from Robin Hood, will play Liv, the female lead and daughter of a late friend of Constantine's (Matt Ryan). She finds she has the ability to see the supernatural world, which makes her important in the battle of good versus evil. Harold Perrineau (LostSons of Anarchy) has joined the cast as Manny, an angel assigned to watch over Constantine and who can possess other people's bodies. Lastly, Charles Halford, most recently seen in HBO's True Detective, has landed the role of Chas, who's basically Constantine's BFF. [Deadline]

... The Hunger Games' Leven Rambin, who will forever be All My Children's Rambin to me, has joined The Tomorrow People in a "dangerous" new role. She'll appear in the final three episodes of the season (series?) as Natalie, a paranormal who has no love for humans. Dun dun dun! [TV Guide]

... Jamie Gray Hyder, who appeared as werewolf Danielle in two seasons of True Blood, has joined the cast of Graceland for Season 2. She'll play Lucia Solano, a grad student whose brother Carlito (Erik Valdez) runs the cartel the Graceland team is trying to bust. Lucia, unfortunately, gets saddled with the job of keeping her brother in check. Girl, tell me about it. Brothers are the worst sometimes. [THR]

I'll take Master Chef Jr. Season 3 as quickly as they can produce it. FOX's schedule is sorely missing Gordon Ramsay.

I know I'm in the minority here, but I find Lucy Griffith very strange looking - enough that it distracts me when she's on screen.

I really do hope they make another season of The Tomorrow People. Didn't they give a chance to something called Beauty and the Beast?

I feel like CW bit off a bit more than it can chew with Reign, it feels like every other episode we hear about something having to be changed so it can make it to air. Maybe who ever's brain child this is should have looked for a different network to produce it.

*looks up Charles Halford* Ahh, they're actually going more with the comic version of Chas, not whatever the hell Shia Labeouf was supposed to be. Lucy Griffith AND Harold Perrineau??? Constantine is looking pretty darn good already even despite Matt Ryan looking like a bit of a weak casting choice.

"Am I old and out of touch?"
Ya a little I'm afraid. Jk

You may not know the names at a glance but you would probably recognize the songs. (at least a few of them).

I call Henry, Kenna and Diane for the threesome.

I wonder if Constantine's bi-ness will be glossed over.

It was barely ever addressed in the comics, why would they make much of an issue of it on TV?

Shouldn't the Psyche Q&A show be called something like "Psyche-Out"? Seems more appropriate, if not clever.

Rambin was also John Connor's somewhat girlfriend in Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles show and Dr. Sloan's daughter on Grey's Anatomy. I like Tomorrow People, but I'm not sure why. It's not awful, but it's not perfect either. maybe I am able to just go with it, as nothing really bad seems to jump out at me (ha - sounds like a pun due to the teleport aspect, but not intended).

Well, the outtakes shown at the end of Psych episodes are the Psych-Outs, so maybe this should be the Psyn-Off? Psyonara?

Are they? I didn't know that. Also have not seen those in some time either unless On Demand, through which I watch it, isn't including them.

They still air during the closing credits of the initial broadcast on USA and its first repeat a few hours later. Subsequent broadcasts (probably including OD) don't include them. They're often one of the high points of the episode.

I believe you can see them (and many more that aren't shown on TV) at Psych's portion of USA Network's website. Fun stuff.

The only name I recognise is 'Common' and that's because he's the actor who plays Elam Ferguson in Hell on Wheels. He's apparently a pretty successful rapper with lots of soundtrack credits for writing and performance. The rest of the artists........well.........I'm sure they're professionals, whoever they are!

the only thing that really caught my attention was when you went... dun dun dun.... made me think back to watching my nephew a couple weeks back and he was watching the Croods and the monkey, Belt.
That is all.... goodnight

I don't like streaming, would rather it be on iTunes or something... but I'll probably watch it to see what all the fuss is about.

I'm so happy that Lee Pace is coming back on tv but a show that is a computer-pioneering drama just doesn't sound interesting to me. I will give it a shot though for the love of Pace.

Maybe he touches dead computers and they come back to life for 60 seconds?

Reign can have severed horse heads, half decapitaions and a very detailed birth scene with placenta still on the baby but a sexier sex scene than what we've already had isn't allowed, I love reign and I'll watch it regardless but how sexier can it be

Well the one at the beginning isn't with anyone you would expect. And the one at the end…. lets just say that there is an element that makes that scene awkward, and I can't imagine why they would want to prolong it. Of course maybe that just my sour grapes ;)

I will say that the wedding felt rushed, and wasn't the beautiful spectacle I expected it to be. But that ending…whew, that's gonna have us chatting it up for days.

After "The Rains of Castamere" no TV wedding is ever going to matter again.

I learned today (or rather, someone told me) the John Constantine character is based on Sting. I'm sure everyone will reprimand me if I'm wrong and then I can go reprimand that other guy.

But if I'm right, then....there you go, perfect stunt casting.

If you look at Constantine's first appearances in Swamp Thing in the mid-'80s, he was definitely based on Sting initially, although the similarity in appearance has diminished over the years.
Reply

Sorta, the look (and sound) of him is based on Sting. Even though the guy they chose isn't blond, he has the overall rough and sketchiness of the comic book character, so I'm hoping he'll be good.
Reply

They don't often address his sound, other than the times he insists his name is pronounced Constan-TINE, not Constan-teen. Somehow doubt they'll address that in the new series.
