Captain America costar Hayley Atwell explains why her character Peggy Carter is more than a match for Steve Rogers. Daniel Radcliffe and director David Yates discuss the most scintillating scene in all the Harry Potter movies. Bring out your spoilers!
Hayley Atwell explains how she sees her character, Peggy Carter:
"I likened her character to that famous Ginger Rogers quote. She can do everything Captain America can do, but backwards and in high heels. She's an English soldier through and through, although she always looks fabulous. She might stand there with a machine-gun shooting Nazis, but she's obviously gone to the loo beforehand and applied a bit of lipstick. She doesn't need to be rescued. That's exciting to me – her strength."

Stanley Tucci says he's finished filming his scenes as Professor Erskine, and that everyone else has about three weeks of shooting left. He also explained that Erskine was originally envisioned as "the elderly German scientist", but he joked that they obligingly changed the character to "very tired looking man" when he took on the role.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
Honestly, this reads a lot more like locker room gossip than actual spoilers, but Daniel Radcliffe says his kiss with Emma Watson was "a very vigorous kissing scene", and as director David Yates explains, "That was mainly Emma, I have to say." He apparently wanted something "pagan and mad" from the scene. Their kiss is part of Ron's rage-induced vision that Harry and Hermione secretly hate him and are madly in love with each other. The scene also features simulated nudity. [Fancast]

The Walking Dead
We may be in for a long wait for the show's second season. The show comes back in 2011 with a longer 13 episode season, but that reportedly won't occur until October, so that AMC can develop another Halloween-themed month to ramp up excitement for the show's return. It's also a recognition that AMC already has two summer shows, Mad Men and Breaking Bad, and their relatively small operation means that's really the limit for how many original shows they can support at once.
Frank Darabont is also reportedly going to write and direct another episode next season. [Hollywood Reporter]
