Bummer news for fans of the TNT drama as tonight it was announced that Tuesday’s episode of Leverage will be the show’s last. The series will conclude with its fifth season finale which will air on Christmas Day–something that is relatively unexpected, but also should not come off as too shocking.

Shame.

That is why today it is making headlines that talks with the actors to come back have already started. Continue Reading

We remember Kal Penn from those crazy Harold and Kumar movies or possibly from the harsh way he was kill off from the Fox medical drama, House.
