Insurgents from Hollow Earth resurface in the next episode of "Sanctuary," resulting in a happy reunion and an unexpected betrayal. Kate Freelander is back on Earth, instead of inside it. (The best part of that news, however, is that Agam Darshi is back on "Sanctuary. " I've missed her these past few episodes.) In the sneak peek for "Acolyte," airing at 9 p.m. Dec. 9 on Syfy, Kate and Will (Robin Dunne) interrogate an abnormal who is part of the Hollow Earth team plotting an above-ground attack.

Christopher Heyerdahl's name is synonymous with such characters as John Druitt and Bigfoot of “Sanctuary,” Todd the Wraith of “Stargate Atlantis” and the vampire Marcus in the “Twilight” films. Add to that list The Swede, his menacing character in AMC's post-Civil War Western, “Hell on Wheels.” “Isn't he amazing? What a great character, huh,” Heyerdahl said during a recent interview, giving credit to pretty much everyone on the production but himself. Yet Heyerdahl turns in the unforgettable, Emmy-worthy performance as The Swede, who is...

In the political drama "The Reluctant Fundamentalist," Changez (Riz Ahmed) transitions from a financial hotshot in 2001 New York to a man suspected of being a terrorist in 2011 Lahore, Pakistan. Kate Hudson plays Erica, an artist who offers Changez a (romantic) respite from an America that continually closes in around him. On the surface, Hudson ("Bride Wars"), 34, and actor/rapper Ahmed ("Four Lions"), 30, might not seem to have much in common. Yet part of the point of "Fundamentalist" is the importance of looking beyond surface appearances.

Today is the day, people: “Tales of Iceland or Running with the Huldufólk in the Permanent Daylight” is now available from nascent media empire GiveLiveExplore . What is “Tales of Iceland” you ask? Like the press release says, I'm just pioneering a new type of fast, fun, and informative travel literature aimed at the traveler looking for a non-guidebook to Iceland. No biggie. Basically, some friends and I went to Iceland and had some adventures. Along the way we interviewed Reykjavik's actor-comedian mayor Jon Gnarr (available for your ...

And baby makes ... four? Well, not just yet. But Kristin Cavallari says she and her new hubby, Bears QB Jay Cutler, may not be far off. "We are both ready for baby No. 2," she told E! News. "I don't have any announcement today, that's for sure, but we're gettin' there. " (Does Jay know about this?) To give Chicago's No. 1 hottest football/beach-themed reality show couple more time to talk about giving 10-month-old Camden a brother or sister, we decided to plot the next few decades of their lives.

Oh, how far away 2011 feels. As RedEye's sole Giants fan, it's been a long, lonely season for me already. The Giants have gone a miserable 0-5, and I'm beginning to fear this may be the year coach Tom Coughlin's head actually explodes. The Bears have stumbled the past two weeks as well, making Thursday's matchup the opposite of must-see football. It's all we've got though, kiddos, so let's make the most of this NFL lint ball. Here are four reasons to tune in that have very little to do with, well, actual football.

When was the last time you were out for dinner, sharing wine with a few friends over delicious food, only to stand up and realize you were a bit tipsier than you thought? Been there. Done that. Chugged some water in the bathroom. No biggie. Generally this type of overindulgence happens at a casual BYO - not during a $500 dinner. Recently my boyfriend and I were out on a date at a special occasion restaurant - one of those rare dinners that involves high heels and strict budgeting for a month to afford it. We sat down around the same time as the table of four next...

The outlook wasn't brilliant for the Chicago Fifty Three that day; The score stood 19 to 7 with but one quarter more to play And when Robbie Gould unleashed a mighty kick that went awry, The fans at Soldier Field were certain this game was doomed to die   "They've won four straight," said one melancholy chap within the stands And though their run was sure to end, this was not within the plans A loss to Carolina, a team...

Has a modern political party ever shoved a guy center stage so hastily? Has a party ever pushed more of their chips into the pot based on one hand? Has anybody even bothered to point out that Marc Rubio perfectly embodies the white conservative critique of affirmative action hires? You'll recall me explaining why Rubio would have been a much better VP pick than Paul Ryan, and you'll also recall me writing that he's the current frontrunner for the 2016 nomination, but that's simply my political brain thinking through game theory.

I get obsessed with things that are really funny. Funny things, you see, make certain chemicals in your brain go all goofy, thus giving you joy. That's why I follow politics, because the comedic value of politics is of titanic, gobsmacking proportions. Case in point: the media and conservatives' sincere belief that Florida Senator Marco Rubio can reach young and minority voters because he likes Tupac. This is so hysterical I almost fell out of my chair into another chair just so I could fall out of that one too. What is it with tragically unhip political parties and their inability to...
