Maggie Q and Zoe Kravitz Join Divergent

Written by Marica on March 12 2013

The cast of Divergent has expanded by three. Maggie Q, Zoe Kravitz and Ansel Elgort will be joining Shailene Woodley (The Descendants) in the feature film adaptation of the first book in Veronica Roth’s young adult series. The books are similar in tone to The Hunger Games and have a loyal (and large) fan following.

The plot: “Divergent is a thrilling adventure centered around the monumental choice of deciding who you are and discovering who you can be. Set in a future where America is divided into five ideological factions to stabilize society and uphold peace, every citizen must choose a permanent faction at age 16 – either their own or another. Struggling to survive her initiation into the most aggressive and physically demanding of the factions, Beatrice Prior must uncover her true hidden strengths and risk her family, her new found love, and her very own life to defuse a mysterious conspiracy which could change the balance of power forever.”

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Maggie Q will play ‘Tori,’ one of the people who helps divide the citizens into factions. Kravitz will play a member of the Dauntless faction who becomes a friend of Tris (played by Woodley). And Elgort will handle the key role of Woodley’s character’s twin brother.


Official Nikita Season 3 Description

Written by Alexa on September 11 2012

When Nikita (Maggie Q, “Live Free or Die Hard,” “Mission Impossible 3?) was a troubled teenager on death row, she was “recruited” by a secret U.S. black ops program known only as Division. They faked her execution and turned her into an assassin. Nikita never lost her humanity, and when she learned that Division was a corrupt organization, she went rogue, exposing their covert operations, destroying their plans, righting their wrongs.

Two years later, she finds herself working for a new Division, fighting alongside a team of allies she’s gathered throughout her adventures. They have vowed to clean up the mess left behind by the old Division – rogue spies, violent assassins – Nikita is hunting down killers just as skilled as she is.

In her campaign to end Division’s legacy, Nikita teamed with Michael (Shane West, “ER,” “Once and Again,” “A Walk to Remember”). He’s the man who trained her – and the man who loves her. A stalwart soldier in the fight, Michael is determined to build a life for himself and Nikita, a life beyond the turmoil of their day jobs.

Entertainment Weekly’s Comic-Con Scoop

Written by Alexa on July 13 2012

The Panel: Melinda Clarke, Aaron Stanford, Lyndsey Fonseca, Shane West, Maggie Q, and executive producer Craig Silverstein. Moderated by HuffPo’s Laura Prudom.

The Big Revelations: Many! The only way to break it down is by subject.

Owen’s ‘agenda’: Devon Sawa, who was recently promoted to series regular, will return in the fourth episode of the new season and all of the audience’s burning questions — like why he didn’t participate in the raid on Division — will be answered. “He’s going to come back with a mystery and an agenda,” said Silverstein.

Casting scoop: The bad guy in the first episode, which is set a month after the finale, will be played by Alcatraz alum Jeff Pierce, who played Jack Sylvane on the dearly departed show.

Nikita vs. Ryan?: CIA agent Ryan Fletcher (Noah Bean) is another new regular on the show, and his dynamic with Nikita will be conflicted. “I think Nikita being behind a desk all day would have been less interesting for [fans], so as partners, there’s a [new] dynamic,” said Maggie Q. “As you know, Nikita has a huge problem with authority, and she has a new boss now…So she’s gotta make — this is not sexual — Ryan happy…They’re two characters with strong convictions. So we’ll see what happens there.”

The CW Reveals 2012-2013 Schedule

Written by Alexa on May 17 2012

Just call Wednesday night hero night on The CW’s 2012-2013 schedule. The network has moved Friday night player “Supernatural” to Wednesdays and is pairing it with the new DC Comics series “Arrow.”

Meanwhile, Tyra Banks’ “America’s Next Top Model” moves to Friday nights paired with “Nikita

New medical drama “First Cut” joins “Hart of Dixie” on Tuesdays and the vampires of Mystic Falls will meet the beast on Thursdays with the programming block of “The Vampire Diaries” and “Beauty and the Beast.”

“The Carrie Diaries,” the “Sex and the City” prequel and one of The CW’s highest profile projects, doesn’t make its CW debut until midseason. When it does, Carrie Bradshaw will take over the “Gossip Girl” timeslot. The CW’s other new scripted series, “Cult,” is also being held for midseason.

“One of our biggest priorities this year at The CW was adding more original programming, and we’ve added 50 original hours to our schedule in 2012,” Mark Pedowitz, president of The CW, said in a statement. “With dynamic new dramas for the fall and midseason, and our first-ever summer schedule leading into our October fall launch, this is poised to be a transformative season for The CW.

The CW Renews Nikita for Third Season

Written by Alexa on May 11 2012

Such wonderful news! Congratulations to all those involved in the show and of course to all the fans who have worked so tirelessly to support the show.

The CW has renewed Gossip Girl and Nikita as well as freshman drama Hart of Dixie and ended the run of buzzy freshman dramas Ringer and The Secret Circle.

In a bid to fill its schedule with more original fare, the network’s new president Mark Pedowitz is going on something of a pick-up/renewal spree. Earlier today, the CW ordered to series five new offerings, including Arrow and The Carrie Diaries.

Gossip Girl’s sixth season pickup doesn’t come as a surprise as there had been conversations about bringing back the Blake Lively-Leighton Meester hourlong for a final round as the actors’ contracts expire next year. In January, executive producer Stephanie Savage told reporters that the Gossip Girl writers were leaving the story open at the end of season five. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter later that month, she suggested that next season felt like “an organic ending point.” Savage will remain showrunner, while Sara Goodman has been promoted to executive producer.

Nikita, too, will be back for another go-round. In its second season, the Maggie Q-Shane West action drama moved from its plum post-The Vampire Diaries time slot to Fridays at 8 p.m., where it faced stiff competition from the final season of NBC’s outgoing spy dramedy Chuck. Thus far this season, it’s averaging an 0.6 rating in the 18-49 demo.

11 of The Toughest Women Ever on Film

Written by Alexa on May 05 2012

This weekend, the hugely anticipated blockbuster “The Avengers” hits theaters, bringing together a motley crew of super heroes, including Robert Downey Jr.’s “Iron Man,” Mark Ruffalo’s “The Hulk,” and Chris Hemsworth’s “Thor.” The lone butt-kicking lady of the bunch? Scarlett Johansson, who plays the Black Widow — a role she first played in “Iron Man 2” — in the flick. “There is no magic wand to wave over oneself to look good in a latex catsuit,” she famously said about the role. And yet, she makes it look so easy. In Scarlett/Black Widow’s honor, here are 10 other kick butt female film and TV characters and the women who played them.

6. Maggie Q in “Nikita.” The role has a history — first, as a French film called “La Femme Nikita” and then as an American adaptation called “Point of No Return,” starring Bridget Fonda — but Maggie Q brings her own bad ass vibe to the televised version of the assassin.
