Carl Lumbly Joins Marvel's 'The Falcon and The Winter Soldier'

Dixon is joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe! Carl Lumbly is joining Marvel Studios’ series The Falcon and The Winter Soldier for Disney+. Lumbly will appear in an as-of-yet unannounced role.

The series, which follows the popular Avengers characters played by Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan, is filming now in the Atlanta area, with a premiere set for August on the popular streaming service.

There is a possibility that Lumbly will portray Isaiah Bradley, aka the "Black Captain America." According to the Marvel Comics, Bradley was one of the original test subjects of the Super Soldier program during World War II, which eventually created Captain America.

Lumbly already has a history portraying DC Comics characters. Recently, he starred on the CW's "Supergirl" as M'yrnn J'onzz, the father of J’onn J’onzz the Martian Manhunter. Previously, Lumbly voiced Martian Manhunter in the animated series "Justice League."

Genre fans will also remember Lumbly as the star of the sci-fi series "M.A.N.T.I.S.," which aired on Fox in the mid 1990s and was created by Sam Raimi.

Lumbly has recently appeared on "This Is Us," "God Friended Me," "NCIS: Los Angeles," and "Altered Carbon."

In addition to Mackie and Stan, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier also stars Emily VanCamp, who reprises the role of Sharon Carter, and Daniel Brühl, who returns as Zemo.

Joining the cast is Wyatt Russell, who will appear as John Walker, aka the USAgent.

Ron Rifkin Insists He Isn't a Celebrity (VIDEO)

Arvin Sloane really wants to be left alone.

Ron Rifkin was really interviewed by X17 as he was walking through an airport, a common tactic for tabloid shows to catch celebrities.

The 79-year-old actor was having none of it, however. Channeling his best Sloane, the actor aggressively suggested he wasn't a celebrity. He seemed genuinely annoyed that he was even recognized and video-taped. It's a funny exchange.

Here's the video.

Post your thoughts on the Ron Rifkin video in the comments section below.

J.J. Abrams, Jennifer Garner Reunite for Apple TV Series

Apple TV has ordered a new mini-series from J.J. Abrams, which will reunite him with Jennifer Garner.

According to a report from Variety, the limited series is based on the memoir by Amy Silverstein “My Glory Was I Had Such Friends.” The book tells the story of Silverstein's friends, a group of women who supported her as she underwent a life-saving second heart transplant. Garner will play Silverstein.

It has been 17 years since Garner shot to fame playing spy Sydney Bristow in "Alias," winning a Golden Globe and scoring four Emmy nominations. Abrams, who has become one of Hollywood's most celebrated filmmakers, will executive produce along with Ben Stephenson and Silverstein under the Bad Robot banner. Karen Croner will serve as writer and executive producer.

A premiere date has not been announced.

Jennifer Garner Confirms an Alias Reboot Is The Works

Our prayers may have finally been answered: Jennifer Garner's return to ALIAS may be in the works!

After five seasons, ALIAS was cancelled in 2006, and stars Jennifer Garner, Michael Vartan, Victor Garber, and some guy named Bradley Cooper went on to bigger things.

Now, with the reboot craze hitting TV, it seems the "spy-fi" show is getting a second look.

The Hollywood Reporter spoke with Garner, who was promoting her new HBO show "Camping." During the interview, she dropped the ALIAS reboot bombshell, making clear it appeared to be in the early planning stages.

"I've heard that there's an Alias reboot happening, but no one's talked to me about it," she tells The Hollywood Reporter. "I mean it would be totally different. But if they didn't have me on as a guest, I would be very, very angry. But I can't imagine it being that serious yet because I haven't heard anything about it at all."

The comment marks a change from her past remarks, in which she said that she feels like a revival of the spy series is up to creator J.J. Abrams, and comes as Garner will soon be back on TV.

It's not clear if a reboot would continue with Garner in the lead, minus the actors whose characters died in the finale, including Victor Garber, Ron Rifkin, and Lena Olin. They were vital elements to the show, and going on without them would change the essence of the show.

We could also see a continuation using mostly new characters, with Garner and the rest of the original cast in supporting or cameo roles. This seems to be what Garner is referring to, as she mentions being a "guest" on a possible reboot. Or, we could see an entirely new cast and premise, with only the name to connect the two.

An entirely new show under the Alias name would likely not go over well. In 2010, Abrams tried to do another spy show focused on personal relationships: "Undercovers." It starred Gugu Mbatha-Raw and focused on former CIA spies who were now married. Though it had a definite "ALIAS" vibe, it only lasted one season. That would imply any ALIAS reboot would have to include the original characters to have any chance of success.

What are your thoughts on a possible ALIAS reboot? Let us know, and share this article on social media!

Jennifer Garner Would Like to Sell You Cookies

Jennifer Garner is one dedicated mom - and she doesn't let her superstar status get in the way. With Girl Scout Cookie season upon us, Sydney Bristow has a new mission - moving some boxes into the hands of hungry cookie lovers.

CNN reports.
Jennifer Garner shared a photo of herself over the weekend selling the cookies outside a store. 
"Why yes, kind sir, we do have Thin Mints," read her caption on the photo, which showed a man pointing in her direction as the actress held a sign advertising the sale. 
Garner is a mother of two daughters, Violet, 12, Seraphina, 9, and a five-year-old son Samuel -- all by former husband Ben Affleck. They live in Los Angeles. 
The couple, who announced their split in 2015 and filed for divorce two years later, have been vocal about co-parenting. 
"The main thing is these kids — and we're completely in line with what we hope for them," Garner told Vanity Fair in 2016. "Sure, I lost the dream of dancing with my husband at my daughter's wedding. But you should see their faces when he walks through the door." 
"And if you see your kids love someone so purely and wholly, then you're going to be friends with that person," she added. 
The actress is often photographed by paparazzi engaged in activities with her kids like any other mom. That includes helping to raise money for the local Girl Scout troop.

Alias fans, soak it in. This photo, taken at the Vanity Fair Oscar party, was posted to Instagram and only gets us wondering about the possibilities. We know all involved have downplayed the idea (and Garber's participation is problematic, as we all know), but still, it's nice to dream.

Angus Scrimm, 1926-2015

Angus Scrimm autograph card from the Inkworks Alias set
Angus Scrimm, who played the memorable SD-6 interrogator McCullough on Alias, has passed away at the age of 89. Although Alias fans remember him for his grilling of Jennifer Garner's Sydney Bristow, Scrimm had a lengthy acting career, and is perhaps best known as "The Tall Man" from the Phantasm horror film series.

Actor Doug Jones (Hellboy, Fantastic Four), who made two films with Scrimm, reacted to his passing on his Facebook page. "Anyone who ever met Mr. Scrimm knew him as the kindest most gentle soul...When lunching or dinnering with him socially, you would find me with my chin in my hands just soaking up his stories and wisdom about life. Always an artist. Always a gentleman. Always Angus Scrimm. He will be missed."

Jennifer Garner launches kid's craft project line at Jo-Ann Fabric

Jennifer Garner is launching a new line of creative kits and projects for kids ages 4 to 11, and it is coming exclusively to Jo-Ann this June.

"We Made It by Jennifer Garner" is more than 100 durable, high quality choices designed to last as long as your memories. Kids learn to garden, make costumes & dress up, paint, sew, craft, bake sweet treats & more.

In celebration of the launch, Jo-Ann is proud to support Save the Children with a $75,000 donation for programs helping children in need in the U.S. As Artist Ambassador and trustee, Garner advocates for Save the Children's early education programs with the goal of ensuring that every child in America has access to quality education from cradle to cap and gown.

“As a mom and children’s advocate, I believe it’s very important we encourage children to express themselves and explore their imaginations,” said Jennifer Garner. “The We Made It line makes it easy and fun for families to form lasting memories together while developing their children’s creativity and intellectual abilities. I am excited to share We Made It with families and have a portion of the proceeds benefit Save the Children, a charity that is so important to me.”

The kits feature four creative categories, each encouraging inspiration and collaboration in a different way: Grow, Memorable, Playful and Sweet:

*Grow – foraging baskets, flower press kits and bird feeder projects are a few examples of the grow category which aims to stimulate exploration and observation of the natural world.

*Memorable – from framed family portraits to custom treasure boxes, the creative kits in the memorable category help children form lasting memories while developing personal interests and style.

*Playful – the playful category inspires self-expression and improvisation with creative kits including DIY wooden playsets and cute costumes.

*Sweet – there are more learning benefits related to baking treats than one might imagine – think of all the math – but the colorful kitchen prep mats, cookie stamps and other creative kits in the sweet category help keep children focused on the fun.

Victor Garber confirms Flash spinoff going straight to series

Victor Garber fans are likely aware of his recent run on the hit CW show "The Flash," where he played Martin Stein, a scientist who can merge with Robbie Amell's character of Ronnie Raymond to create the superhero Firestorm.

In a new interview with Broadway World, Garber confirmed that the previously-announced Flash-spinoff he is starring in will skip the pilot process and go straight to series. "We haven't filmed any of it yet - but, it is going straight to series. We start filming in August and it will be on in January," he said.

Garber is also excited about the cast he will join. "It's so many interesting people involved with it - Ciara and Arthur Darvill and Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell and Brandon Routh and Caity Lotz. I am very much looking forward to working with all of them on it. They are all really great people."

Sydney Bristow makes list of top 99 modern TV characters

Yahoo TV has been publishing a list of the top 99 TV characters since Tony Soprano hit TV screens in 1999. I usually hate lists like this as totally pointless, and I wonder why they set Tony Soprano as a starting point to begin with. However, they put Jennifer Garner's Sydney Bristow on the list, so we're mentioning it here.

They put Syd at #51, which we think is still too low, considering she set off the modern TV trend of "girl power" roles that are everywhere today. Of course, we're a bit biased. Anyway, to see the section of the list containing Sydney (they broke it up into multiple articles just to string us along), you can click right here to read it.

Album Review: Mia Maestro's "Si Agua"

Editor's note: I recently had the opportunity to check out Mia Maestro's debut album on behalf of We're reprinting it here for your enjoyment!

Whenever you hear about actresses making the leap into music, the result is often an overproduced, autotuned pop mess that ends up as gathering dust in your iTunes library as a regretful purchase. And so it was with some trepidation that I approached reviewing "Si Agua," the debut album from actress Mia Maestro, known to American audiences for her roles in The Strain, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Alias, and Frida. I was afraid I would have to slam the musical offerings of an actress I had been a fan of since she first played Nadia Santos in Alias ten years ago.

Maestro is no stranger to music, however; she had previously contributed a song (“Llovera”) to The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 soundtrack, which is also featured on this album. Even so, I wasn't sure what to expect from "Si Agua," an album that was recorded in Iceland with a number of local musicians and composers but was also inspired by Maestro’s Argentinian heritage.

I was pleasantly surprised to find "Si Agua" (which translates to "If Water") was not a pop album that echoed every other Top 40 album, but rather a unique mix of light jazz, wispy ballads, and traditional folk songs with both Latin and European influences. And the result is something both inspiring and deeply moving.

Maestro doesn't follow the tired trend of singers who think overpowering vocals and multiple runs equal talent. Her voice has a breathy, graceful delivery that blends so beautifully with the stringed instruments that you often cannot tell one from the other. There isn't even a hint of digital manipulation or autotuning of Maestro’s voice, which is absolutely refreshing and highlights just how good she is. Her voice is as comforting as a mother singing a lullaby, and the accompanying arrangements are smartly mixed, never overpowering the vocals, but supporting them fully. The songs alternate between both English and Spanish lyrics (the song title is an indicator), but even if you don’t speak the language, you won’t mind it a bit.

The songs all have a sweet, intimate feel, and have the sound of a live recording, in all the right ways. At one point, if you listen closely enough, you can even catch a musician count down the start of the song. “Si Agua,” the title track, leads off the album, mixing a Latin rhythm with a chorus of stringed instruments. Both “Wedding” and “Time to Go” have a feel of the best light jazz, with a stringed accompaniment.

“Blue Eyed Sailor” which features Irish folk rocker Damien Rice, is the standout track, evidenced by the music video produced to promote the song. Led off by a strong guitar riff reminiscent of classic 1960s rock (I suppose we can thank Rice for that), the song settles down into a pure ballad. Rather than allowing the instrumentals to go over the top, however, Maestro’s voice keeps the song grounded. It’s a fantastic song, and the video is just as good. “Otra Vez” is a beautiful ballad with a nice piano foundation, that builds to an outstanding symphonic chorus of violins. It is one of my personal favorites of the album. The piano/violin motif continues with “Llovera,” the song featured on the Twilight soundtrack.

“Kidnapped by Snow” is a nice fusion of light electronica and violins, with a Latin beat beneath. It must be heard to be appreciated. “Goodbye” will remind you of the better folk ballads of the 1970s, and the album ends strongly with “Barca,” which showcases Maestro’s voice with light violins.

With the participation of artists including Ben Frost, bass saxophonist Colin Stetson, pianist Thomas Bartlett, Shahzad Ismaily, Valgeir Sigurosson (producer for Bjork), composer Nico Muhly, and the Icelandic Symphony Orchestra, Si Agua is a unique and fulfilling musical experience that perfectly showcases Maestro’s angelic voice. The album can be sampled on both iTunes and Amazon Music, and I highly recommend it.

Release Date: October 7, 2014
Running time: 41 minutes
Genre: International, Latin
Label: Nacional Records
Producer: Valgeir Sigurosson

Jennifer Garner sells sitcom to Fox

Jennifer Garner is heading back to television...sort of. Her production company, Vandalia Films, just sold a half-hour single-camera comedy, Half Full, to Fox, according to a report by The Hollywood Reporter. Garner will executive produce.

The comedy centers on a newlywed couple forced to put on hold their dream of moving to New York City because of impending (unexpected) parenthood. Instead, they have no choice but to stay at home in "beautiful" Agawam, Mass., keeping themselves within a five-mile radius of the husband's five bitter older siblings.

Matthew Nicklaw will pen the script and co-executive produce the comedy, with Vandalia's Juliana Janes on board to produce as well. Last season, Garner teamed with Butter screenwriter Jason Micallef for a strip club drama set up at Fox, and now she is prepping the mystery dramedy All the Pretty Faces at Bravo.

Guillermo del Toro's FX series The Strain is one of the creepiest and most entertaining shows we've seen in a while, made all the better by the fact that Mia Maestro appears as one of the leads. She plays Dr. Nora Martinez, a CDC scientist trying to save the world from, well, a strain. But there's more to it than that. I won't spoil it, but if you aren't watching it, you should. Just be warned: the violence can get quite gory, so it definitely isn't for young children.

Bradley Cooper is GQ's cover man, discusses his Alias days

Bradley Cooper is on the cover of the new GQ, and in an interview he talks about leaving Alias. Cooper says he was upset over his diminishing screen time, and asked J.J. Abrams to write him off the show. He even says he was suicidal during his final days on the set, but it sounds like he meant that figuratively, as he doesn't elaborate. In the months that followed, Cooper says he began drinking and using drugs, but straightened his life out, and we all know the rest.

I wonder how many of the Alias female fanbase is now willing to admit that they hated him on the show back then. The outcry from female fans against the Will Tippin character (for creating a love triangle with Sydney and Vaughn) was so huge, it played a big part in his character being marginalized in the second season.

Jennifer Garner goes shopping with an Alias bag!

Usually we don't post paparazzi pics. but we couldn't resist this time. Jennifer Garner and her family went out shopping recently, and she was photographed using a tote bag from her Alias days. We thought it was kinda cool, especially when we were able to get the exact same bag years ago. They were made for promotional purposes, and Jennifer obviously got one for herself as well. Nice to know she's grounded enough not to go out and spend $1000 on a trendy bag like other actresses; she's practical enough to raid her closet and find something to use.

Showrunner Friedman leaves J.J. Abrams' show "Believe"

Here's the scoop on the changes going on at J.J.'s new show "Believe:"

LOS ANGELES ( - Changes are still going down over at the much-buzzed about J.J. Abrams/Alfonso Cuaron show "Believe." Series co-creator and showrunner Mark Friedman ("The Forgotten") has decided to leave the series over creative differences, TheWrap has learned. We hear his last day on the production was Friday.

An individual close to the production says that though it was Friedman's decision to leave, the split was amicable. Warner Bros. Television, which is also producing the series, and NBC declined to comment. "Believe," which Friedman co-created with director Cuaron ("Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban," "Children of Men") and is being produced by Abrams' Bad Robot Productions ("Revolution," "Person of Interest") has been undergoing rewrites as the writers room has been taking a new direction for the series. 

"Believe" follows Bo Johnny Sequoyah, a young girl with mysterious powers who's destined to change the world, and her protector Tate (Jake McLaughlin), who are both being hunted down by assassins. As part of the recent changes in direction for the supernatural drama, actress Sienna Guillory, who played a hit-woman on the pilot, was written out as the series in order to focus on multiple international assasins after Bo and Tate. The search is currently on to replace Friedman, who co-wrote the pilot with Cuaron. Bryan Burk executive produces the series alongside Abrams. NBC ordered "Believe" to series in March and slated it for a midseason debut.
