ABC’s “Agents of Shield” is adding another Marvel character from the comes, and they’ve cast a familiar face to play her. THR reports “Friday Night Lights” alum Adrianne Palicki is joining the season 2 cast as Bobbi Morse, aka Mockingbird. The appearance of the super-spy from the comics was first teased by Patton Oswalt – who plays Billy Koenig and Sam Koenig – at the show’s Comic Con panel last month. Palicki will first appear as Mockingbird in the season’s 5th episode, with the door open to return for more.Read More

About a Boy - Season 1
When NBC renewed “About a Boy” for a second season earlier today, one of my first thoughts was I hope that Adrianne Palicki will return to reprise her role as Samantha Lake. But these first stills released from the show’s first season finale teases that may not be where the show will be heading next season, as Sam and Will (David Walton) are pictured at an airport security checkpoint. These sorts of scenes never bode well for romantic couples, especially in season finales, especially when half of the couple isRead More
'Hannibal' Episode 2.10, 'Naka-Choko'
It’s been a mixed bag of a day for the most passionate fans of NBC’s bubble shows. “Hannibal” fans got good news as the Peacock network has renewed Bryan Fuller’s serial killer procedural for a third season, but the timeline has turned decidedly darker for fans of “Community,” the little sitcom that could which is now over after 5 seasons. Let’s hope the rumors swirling that Dan Harmon has already been reaching out to Hulu and Netflix about picking up the show are true. #SixSeasonsandaMovie! Elsewhere at the network, “AboutRead More
About a Boy - Season 1
With Dakota (Leslie Bibb) taking a “nomadic year,” we knew it couldn’t be long before a new woman drew the eye of ladies man Will (David Walton). In the first stills released from “About a Boy” episode 1.06, we have our first glimpse of Adrianne Palicki, joining the show as Dr. Sam Lake, a doctor who cares for Marcus (Benjamin Stockham) and attracts his manchild buddy. Judging by these stills, Will certainly manages to work his charm well enough to get a date out of Sam, but will this newRead More
In the dozen years since “About a Boy,” the movie, premiered, comedies about adult males who can’t grow up have become a dime a dozen and even a little bit stale, so it would take an extraordinary amount of talent and impeccable casting to make such an archetype somehow fresh and watchable again. Enter NBC’s sitcom redo of the classic Nick Hornby novel, with Jason Katims behind the camera and David Walton in front of it as the perpetual man-child. No, it doesn’t necessarily do anything new for the genreRead More
It’s a “Friday Night Lights” reunion (sort of)! THR reports Adrianne Palicki, an alum of the critically acclaimed NBC series, has landed a recurring role on the network’s new series “About a Boy,” which was also created by “FNL” showrunner Jason Katims, who is rather fond of casting his “FNL” graduates on his new series, which also includes “Parenthood.” The film is based on the Nick Hornby novel (and Hugh Grant film) of the same name, and stars David Walton as Will, a single-and-loving-it musician who bonds with the nextRead More
Maybe we don’t need another version of Nick Hornby’s “About a Boy” after Hugh Grant and a very young Nicholas Hoult brought it to life on the big screen over ten years ago, but this just looks super charming and fun. NBC tasked Jason Katims with adapting and modernizing the novel for American series format, and we’ve got the first trailer featuring single and worry-free David Walton reluctantly taking neighbor kid Benjamin Stockham under his wing. Walton’s Will Freeman is dying to get into Leslie Bibb’s schoolteacher character’s pants, andRead More
