Mistresses Renewed For Second Season + Jason George On The Show’s Popularity



It’s confirmed, your favorite scandalous summer soap has been renewed for another season.

ABC confirmed this week that Mistresses, starring Alyssa Milano has been picked up for a second season. Over the summer, the show became the second most popular scripted drama in the 18-49 demographic, averaging 5 million viewers.

“For all of you great supporters of #Mistresses, I am so happy to announce that there will be a Season 2 of Mistresses!!! God is good,” co-star Rochelle Aytes tweeted after the big announcement.

“Happy to report that #Mistresses was picked up for a second season. Thank you for all the love and support. I appreciate you,” Milano also tweeted.

HipHollywood caught up with Jason George, who (plot spoiler) plays Milano’s work husband and possible love interest, just days before ABC announced the show’s renewal to talk about the program’s popularity.

“I did not know it was going to become this thing, I had no clue,” the actor told us. “It was a summer show. Nobody knows how to do a summer show, not on network … My thing was it’s a job, it shoots in Los Angeles, I get to sleep in my own bed. These are all positive things,” George dished.

Mistresses, which also stars Jes Macallan and Yunjin Kim, is scheduled to premiere in the Summer of 2014.


Review: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Is Bigger & Better Than The First



If you liked Kingsman:The Secret Service, get ready for The Golden Circle. Hands downs this Kingsman is bigger, badder and better than the first.

Director Matthew Vaughn really takes it up a notch and gives fans much more action and fight sequences. Right off the top we see Eggsy (Taron Egerton) in this amazing car chase scene that will have you applauding as soon as the Prince track ends.

And while we’re talking music the film has an amazing sound track. And if you didnt know, Elton John is also in the film acting and singing some of his classic tunes.

What I also loved were the new editions.  Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges and Pedro Pascal who play the Statesmen – the American version of the Kingsman –  and the dynamic between the two is pretty comical. Vaughn really explores the difference between the two cultures – mannered men in suits versus macho men in jeans and cowboy boots.

Then there’s Julianne Moore who plays the villain, she’s like this maniacal Martha Stewart esque drug lord and she’s quite good at it.

Now there are some obnoxious moments (like that sex scene between Egerton and Poppy Delevigne).  But I think that’s the point. This franchise is all about turning the spy genre on it’s head and introducing the younger generation to a new type of Bond flick … And we think they are going to love it.
