It wasn't supposed to be like this. They were not supposed to leave Soldier Field on Sunday afternoon on the losing end of a 10-3 game against the struggling Kansas City Chiefs. The Bears were not supposed to leave Soldier Field unsure if running back Matt Forte would play any time soon. They were not supposed to leave Soldier Field with a fan base questioning who should be playing quarterback next week at Denver. And they most certainly not supposed to leave Soldier Field looking like a team destined to be watching the playoffs instead of playing in them.

When "Shameless" star Jeremy Allen White describes the Season 1 scene in which his character peed on his father, you have to wonder if the actor is sensitive - or demented. "It's kind of beautiful when the father steps out of the stream of urine and realizes, 'this is right,' and he steps back into it," the 20-year-old White, who plays Lip Gallagher in the Showtime series, said. "It's kind of romantic and beautiful in a way. I think he's taking it because he knows he did something terrible.

Detached from his ex (Aubrey Plaza, in a single scene) and apparently not working, Charlie obliges, though maybe he's just...

Niall Matter found the perfect role when he joined the cast of "Eureka. " "I'm not unlike Zane in a lot of ways," said Matter, speaking of Zane Donovan, the snarky, bad-boy physicist he's played since the second season of the Syfy series about a town of genius inventors and scientists.
