Missy Peregrym (Scarlett Harker) will star as Special Agent Maggie Bell in the upcoming CBS series F.B.I., which will focus on the inner workings of the Bureau’s New York office. Maggie comes from a family with several generations of law enforcement officers in its history, and she has a talent for putting her own emotions and the emotions of others to constructive use. She is protective of and committed to the people with whom she works. Maggie has recently experienced a personal tragedy (we have not been told what that is), and is making an effort to not let it ruin her career or her life. The pilot was written by showrunner Craig Turk and the first two episodes will be directed by Niels Oplev. Agent Bell’s boss, Ellen, will be played by Connie Neilsen (Queen Hippolyta in WONDER WOMAN). Thirteen episodes have been ordered, and F.B.I. should premiere in late 2018. Continue reading →

VAN HELSING – Season 2 Episode 8 – SPOILERS
Sheriff Walt Turner (Tom McBeath), a dark version of SMOKEY AND THE BANDIT’s Buford T Justice, pulls Wanda the Ambulance over as the gang heads south searching for Vanessa (who was taken by a group that Axel assures us was not the military. “They had training, though”, he admits.) Sheriff Turner, an only slightly exaggerated embodiment of the American way, is extremely impressed with Axel and his military record and invites everybody for a barbecue. Overtly sexist and racist, Walt causes Doc (Rukiya Bernard) to tell him to “eat shit” at one point, and when Scarlett (Missy Peregrym) expresses a hatred for guns, Walt asserts that “bullets are life“.
