Erykah Badu, Lance Bass join guest cast of Amazon's 'Hand of God'

Amazon's upcoming drama series "Hand of God" is currently shooting around Los Angeles and now it's revealing some of the performers who will guest star, including recording stars Erykah Badu and former 'N Sync member Lance Bass.

Ron Perlman stars in the series as Judge Pernell Harris, a wild-man justice with a drinking problem and a mistress, who has a mental breakdown and goes on a mission for vengeance against the rapist who destroyed his family. He also believes he's getting messages from God through his son, who's on a ventilator.

The series from former "Burn Notice" writer Ben Watkins and filmmaker Marc Forster, already features a strong cast, including Dana Delany as Harris' wife, Garret Dillahunt as a sociopath carrying out Harris' wishes, Andre Royo as the town mayor, Alona Tal as Harris' daughter-in-law, Julian Morris as a local preacher, Elizabeth McLaughlin as the preacher's girlfriend and Emayatzy Corinealdi as Harris' call-girl mistress.

'The Nightly Show' introduces its newest contributor, Hand Gun

If Conan O'Brien could have Triumph the Insult Comic Dog and Jon Stewart could have the Michael Steele puppet, then it stands to reason that Larry Wilmore, host of "The Nightly Show," should have his own inanimate contributor. And on Tuesday, he got it with Hand Gun, the talking handgun, portrayed by "Nightly Show" contributor Mike Yard.

Hand, as he insists on being called -- "Mr. Gun is married to my mother," he says -- showed up to weigh in on the issue of whether or not college students should be allowed to carry firearms on college campuses.

"It's the ... worst idea I've ever heard," he said. "And I've spent a fair amount of time with some straight-up murderers."

As Hand Gun explained, lethal killers such as his previous owner "Baby Killer" live by a code. If someone does wrong by them, do pay it back. But college kids?

"They're unpredictable," Gun explained. "One minute I'm in a backpack listening to 'em type up a psych paper. Next thing you know, he's on Molly and I'm shooting up...

'The Voice' recap: Fits, face-offs and forgotten promises

At the outset of the fourth night of “The Voice” Season 8 blind auditions, the coaches had filled only seven (Christina Aguilera and Blake Shelton) or eight (Adam Levine and Pharrell Williams) seats on his or her team of 12. By the end of the show, all the coaches had just one open spot remaining, save for Williams, who had two.

On Monday, all the teams will reach capacity and -- in the same show -- the battle rounds will begin. (Wednesday night's episode is a “Best of the Blinds” highlight show.)

Yes, things are flying along. But along the way we’ve gotten coach alliances and betrayals, face-offs, thrown fits and hug-fests.

Here’s how the talent shook out on Tuesday night:

Ashley Morgan: This “all-American”-looking, as Blake pointed out, 26-year-old California-based backup vocalist hit all the right notes with her “I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me),” yet spun only Shelton and Williams. Shelton told her she’d never return to the background and that he could help her “move...

TruTV makeover continues with first scripted comedy 'Those Who Can't'

TruTV, once a haven of reality shows and legal-themed programming, is amid an overhaul, and as part of its new "Way More Fun" motto, the channel has greenlighted its first full-length scripted comedy series, "Those Who Can't."

The series was created by and stars Adam Cayton-Holland, Andrew Orvedahl and Ben Roy, members of the Denver-based comedy troupe the Grawlix. 

It follows dysfunctional high school teachers joined in their immature exploits by the school's new librarian, played by Maria Thayer.

The channel has ordered 10 episodes of the series, set to debut in early 2016.

"Those Who Can't" will join the other comedy series recently launched on the channel, including the sketch comedy series "Friends of the People," "Impractical Jokers" and the musical reality series "Branson Famous."

The pilot for "Those Who Can't" was originally commissioned by Amazon in 2012, but the streaming service declined to pick up the series in 2013. According to the Denver Post, the pilot was reshot in...

Sarah Michelle Gellar joins 'Star Wars Rebels' for Season 2

"Star Wars Rebels" continues to offer up gifts for the fans. On Monday's first-season finale, it reintroduced the beloved character Ahsoka Tano from "The Clone Wars" animated series. Now it's recruiting a former vampire slayer.

On Tuesday, "Rebels" executive producer Dave Filoni announced that Sarah Michelle Gellar would be joining the voice cast of the series in Season 2 in an unidentified recurring role.

Gellar is known to most genre fans as the title character from Joss Whedon's much-beloved "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" series. But she's also married to Freddie Prinze Jr., who voices Kanan Jarrus, the Jedi survivor of the "Rebels" series.

Perhaps he did a little persuading?

Gellar joins an already-impressive voice cast that also includes David Oyelowo (from "Selma"), Vanessa Marshall, Steve Blum, Tiya Sircar and Taylor Gray.

According to Prinze, the second season will be nearly twice as long as the 13-episode-plus-a-pilot, first season. However, there's no word yet on a premiere date....
