The Office Spin-Off Casting News — The Farm – TVLine

I still feel like this Dwight-centric spin-off of The Office is a bad April Fool’s Day joke (wait, what’s today? Oh, we’re in June). Much as I like Dwight’s character, it really shines in contrast to the “normal” people at The Office, especially Jim.

So who will we be left with at The Office if The Farm’s planted pilot gets the green light for a full-blown show? Michael Scott’s been gone for a year, and while I loved Andy’s turn as manager, Robert California’s head honcho role was terrible. But even as annoying as he was, new character Nellie is even worse, so losing him and gaining her as a full cast member doesn’t improve things. Kelly’s gone as well, and Ryan will only be stopping by occasionally. And now Dwight will either leave the show completely or take a reoccurring role.

Whose love story do we have to root for now? Jim and Pam, and Andy and Erin don’t need any more drama. Who will Jim play pranks on?

Comic-Con 2012: Firefly 10th Anniversary Panel – TVLine

Firefly at Comic-Con?!? Is the Serenity is a time-machine? Nope, fans just really love the show, even after it’s been gone a decade. This panel features Joss Whedon, Nathan Fillion, Adam Baldwin, Alan Tudyk, Sean Maher, and Michael Fairman (Niska), as well as never-before-seen footage.

Top 15 TV Villains

Here are TV’s top villains, as voted by all of you! I expanded this to the top 15 since many of the villains were from the same shows. Also, I’m posting this a day later than usual since I was away yesterday.

Monday Madness: Favorite Summer Show

This Monday Madness, it’s time to bask in the delights of summer TV! As many broadcast shows go on hiatus for the summer, cable shows get a chance to shine! Also, we here in the US get the chance to experience some Canadian and British shows over the summer as well.

The selection of shows is based on US scheduling, and features shows within the past decade. I included some newer shows that had aired at least 3 episodes (giving Bunheads a little leeway since its third episode airs tonight). Not all of these shows air all their episodes in the summer – many have a split schedule, with the second half of seasons airing the following winter. Also, not all of these are still summer shows – for example, Psych has transitioned into a fall show, but since 5 of the past 6 seasons have started in July or August, I felt it qualified for the poll.

This poll will be open for one week, and you can choose up to 10 of your favorite summer shows. Be sure to spread the word so your favorites will make it into the top 10! Fans have used Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, forums, Reddit, blogs, and chatboxes to get the word out about past polls. Get creative!

Even though there are 30-some options on this list, I know there are TV shows I left out! You can nominate ones I missed in the comments until Thursday night, and I may add them to the poll (live-action scripted shows only, please).

Want more of a say in who makes it onto the poll each week? Be sure to follow me on Twitter or like TV Breakroom on Facebook, since I usually ask for nominations for the next Monday Madness the weekend before the new poll. Please help out with nominations! There are only so many shows I can watch personally, so I’m counting on you to fill me in!

Without further ado, here’s the poll for this week’s Monday Madness! Voting ends around 1AM July 2nd.

Save The Finder!

Fox has cancelled one of my favorite shows of this past season, The Finder. While cancelled shows rarely get renewed because of fan effort, there’s a bit more hope that they get picked up by a cable network instead.

I think USA Network should pick up The Finder.

The Finder is a perfect match for USA – zany, original characters having hilarious adventures while solving very real problems in unorthodox ways. In fact, when my brother first told me about the show, he thought it was on USA Network.

USA Network has a feedback page, where you can offer suggestions for shows. Scroll down to the email form, fill in your info, select USA Network Programming (Shows, Movies, Specials) under topic, then select Other – Suggest a Program near the bottom of the programs drop-down box. Write a brief note in the message box suggesting that USA Network pick up The Finder and explaining why the show would be a great fit for them.

Then spread the word to get other fans of The Finder to do the same! If enough people suggest the show, they will be able to see the strong fan support The Finder has, and be more willing to consider picking it up!

Once Upon a Time Season 2 — Emilie de Ravin Promoted to Series Regular – TVLine

My Once Upon a Time wish came true! When Meghan Ory was promoted to series regular, I hoped Emilie de Ravin would receive a similar promotion, and she has! I’m looking forward to seeing a lot more of Belle in season 2 of Once Upon a Time, and I’m sure RumBelle fans are rejoicing! Rumpelstiltskin and Belle were recently voted as the #2 speculative couple here on TV Breakroom, beating out fellow Once Upon a Time couples Emma and Sheriff Graham, and Snow and Charming!

Eye on Emmy 2012: White Collar and Glee’s Matt Bomer – TVLine

Fun interview with White Collar’s Matt Bomer! He talks about his upcoming movie, guest-starring on Glee (yes, I just played his rendition of Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know” for a friend this evening!), and how long he plans to stay on White Collar. There’s some discussion on more serious topics, including a bias against USA Network shows in the Emmys. But there are also some lighthearted yet insightful questions. For example, this:

Q: Neal Caffrey has to be one of the funnest characters to play.

A: He is. It’s so rare, especially as a younger actor, to find a role where it’s not just one-dimensional and it’s not just a stock leading man. He is smart, intelligent, slick. He has grace under fire. He’s excellent under pressure. He’s on point. He’s firing on all cylinders. But at the same time, he’s really a 4-year-old. He has terrible impulse control. He makes really irrational decisions, especially when it comes to anything romantically-inclined. He is a hopeless romantic to a fault. … It’s a real dream of a role to get to play. More and more, as I play the role over the years, I come to find so many things in my life that I thought were futile or silly at the time, that I may have studied or read about or practiced, led up to this opportunity for me.

Top 10 Favorite TV Dads

Here are TV’s top 10 dads, as chosen by all of you! I find it especially appropriate that the on-screen daughter of this poll’s winner helped spread the word to get people to vote for her “dad”! Also of note – nine of the 10 dads are from shows that are currently airing or will return in the fall.

Exclusive: Leverage Hosts an Angel Reunion – Today’s News: Our Take | TVGuide.com

Okay, this news is just amazing! Adam Baldwin (one of my favorite actors) is guest-starring on Leverage (one of my favorite shows)!

Baldwin and Leverage’s Christian Kane both appeared in Angel’s fifth season, and Kane’s character was one out of only two characters to appear in both the pilot and the finale of the show. Baldwin is best known to TV fans for playing Jayne on Firefly and John Casey on Chuck.

TV Guide shared this:

Baldwin will play the possibly recurring role Col. Michael Vance, an ex-Army Ranger who now runs a government counter-terrorism unit. However, Vance often ruffles the feathers of other intelligence community bureaucrats with his unorthodox method of recruiting small teams of agents — and even civilians — from a wide range of expertise. Sounds like the kind of guy who might call on Nate & Co. for help, right?
