Joshua Jackson has jumped on board a campaign to save the oceans of the world.

Speaking in the video campaign, he said: "The health of the oceans affects all of us. It's amazing how interconnected we all are. When fish populations decline, it really impacts people and marine animals everywhere. Orcas in the Pacific Northwest rely on salmon for food. Fishers around the world feed their families with what they catch or sell. Restoring our oceans helps feed hungry people while supporting vibrant ecosystems. I am excited to work with Oceana so we can save the oceans and help feed the world." Watch video

Anna Torv took home the award for Most Outstanding Actress this week at the 59th annual TV WEEK Logie Awards in Australia for her role as political correspondent, Harriet Dunkley in the Foxtel Showcase series Secret City.

"Of course I grew up watching the Logies so this is really special and I feel incredibly honored. Thank you so much. There’s so many people I want to thank- Chris Uhlmann and Steve Lewis who wrote the book that Secret City was based on. Thank you for your generosity and also for allowing Harry to become Harriet so that I could play her. Foxtel, Brian Walsh and Penny Win, thank you. Matchbox Pictures, Joanna Werner and Penny Chapman thank you so much. And I want to thank Emma Freeman who really did steer this great big ship. That collective and our incredible writers, our outstanding cast and amazing crew came together to create a show that I am so proud of and I’m thrilled to accept this award as a direct result of everyone who worked on the production of Secret City. Thank you." [1] Watch video

Anna Torv cast for David Fincher's new Netflix Drama "Mindhunter"
March 08 2016

Anna Torv will portray FBI psychologist Wendy in the new Netflix series, set to debut in 2017. The project is based on the 1996 book Mind Hunter: Inside the FBI's Elite Serial Crime Unit by John Douglas and Mark Olshanker. Taking place in 1979, it revolves around two FBI agents who interview serial killers in an effort to help them solve current murders. Torv will also be working with Fight Club alum Holt McCallany (who played the Mechanic).

With Torv familiar with playing an FBI agent and McCallany familiar with Fincher's work, these two together will definitely make Mindhunter a hit. Jonathan Groff, who was recently in HBO's Looking series, was also cast in an unknown role.[2] about the storyline and Torv's return to US television. Read More

'Fringe': Winter finale
LA Times, Show Tracker blog February 4, 2010 | 11:45 pm

I want to applaud Fox for running with the concept of winter finales. Considering most shows are going on hiatus while the Olympics, “American Idol,” and “Lost” battle it out (my eyes will be on the one with parallel timelines), why not tie up some loose ends and give the audience a cliffhanger to hold them over until spring? “Glee” did a marvelous job of closing out its first chapter, and “Fringe” gave us some juicy bits to chew on while we eagerly await April.

Over the last two weeks, “Fringe” has shown us how good they have gotten with stand-alone episodes. Thursday night, “Fringe” dives straight into a mythology-heaving hour. Read More
