The Delicious Dark Side Of “Everwood’s” Good Doctor

As one of the dearly departed WB’s most endearing dads, Treat Williams specialized in heartfelt speeches, kindhearted gestures and crinkly-eyed smiles. In his new Lifetime movie, premiering April 15, however, Dr. Andy Brown will be notably absent. “Every time I do something like Andy Brown, I have to go and play a villain,” Williams says. “Those are the juicy parts!” That juicy part this time is Michael Peterson, the enigmatic center of the based-on-a-true-story The Staircase Murders. A best-selling author and one-time mayoral candidate, Peterson was thrust into a different kind of spotlight in 2001 when his frantic 911 call […]

8 Questions With … Walton Goggins

1. What has been your strangest fan encounter? Walton Goggins: Whenever you pass people, you get that stare — that look, and you know that it’s about to come. [A] guy ran up to me in New York and says, “Speak! Speak!” And I said, “Please, get out of my face!” And he said, “Oh, I’m so sorry, I’m so sorry. I’ve only heard you speak in an Italian accent!” He was from Italy and he was a big fan of the show. 2. You’re at a magazine rack and can pick three magazines. What are they? This is exposing […]

Newcomer Jonas Armstrong Is On Target In BBC America’s “Robin Hood”

When I met British actor Jonas Armstrong at a Los Angeles-area hotel, he had just celebrated his birthday on New Year’s Day (he was reportedly the first child born in Ireland in 1981). “I took my little brother away on holiday. We went to Egypt,” he says of his birthday celebration. “I have to say that I was a bit pissed off, because I just turned 26, my brother’s 19. So you kind of have a short list of what you want on a holiday, and on that that short list of what there was, we didn’t manage to check […]

Rebel Scientist Is Unafraid Of The “Big Bad Wolf”

Shaun Ellis is a wolf behavior expert with a unique approach to studying the creatures — he lives with them and becomes part of their world. Now, before you shrug and say that this is another Grizzly Man just waiting to happen, it should be known that Ellis is not living with the wolves in the wild, but in captivity at a wildlife park in England; wolves are more social animals than bears; and Ellis — though he may look a little odd as he strolls through a luxury hotel in his fatigues during a network press tour — actually […]

Explore The “Cities Of The Underworld”

As any sanitation worker can likely attest, there is a lot going on under our streets. But it isn’t all modern pipes and recently constructed sewer access tunnels. Instead, many of the great cities of the world have beneath them labyrinths of old catacombs, hidden water supplies, dungeons, tombs and even forgotten cities that have miraculously survived the ravages of time and formed the foundations — often literally — of the modern cities above them. These range from ancient ruins beneath Old World cities to the hidden places beneath modern American ones. Each has its own hidden wonders, many of […]

Watching Nature Wake Up

Having set our clocks forward in March already, we humans may feel like spring has sprung unusually early. But animals, not governed by clocks and watches, are going along with their familiar patterns quite nicely. Often we are so busy with our lives that we may not notice the amazing natural transformations that occur during this season of rebirth, but a six-week Animal Planet event will help change that. Spring Watch USA airs Saturdays beginning April 21, and it’s almost like a nature reality series. Filmed prior to broadcast each week, the show has cameras across the country that capture […]
