Those who watched last week’s twisty premiere of WEtv’s new scripted drama, The Divide, know that Innocence Initiative case worker Christina (Homeland‘s Marin Ireland) is full of surprises—for example, she drives around Philly singing along to Mos Def’s “Quiet Dog.”
“That was [writer/co-creator] Richard LaGravenese’s pick. He just had a feeling that that is exactly the kind of music she would listen to. Of course it’s like the fastest song in the world. They were like, ‘Can you just learn all the lyrics to this song? We don’t know what part we’re gonna use yet.’ So I was about, for two weeks, walking around Toronto rapping,” says Ireland, who made her own playlist to get into character (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Wu-Tang Clan, and Eminem). “When we shot the scene, I had it playing in my ear, so there was all these guys standing around, and they can’t hear the track, they just hear me going, ‘Simmer down, simmer down, simmer down.’ [Co-creator/director] Tony Goldwyn calls ‘Cut,’ and they all just burst out laughing, and he’s like, ‘Let’s do that again!’ They went five or six times just to make a fool out of me, which was adorable.”
With the season already wrapped, Ireland promises some kind of resolution to the case of who really murdered the Butler family years ago. Having lost the battle to save the death row inmate convicted of the crime in the premiere, Christina has set her sights on helping his alleged accomplice, Terry Kucik (Joe Anderson), who’s serving life and has long claimed his DNA was found on the teen daughter because they were in a hidden relationship.
While fans wait to see how the drama unfolds—did I mention Christina’s father is also on death row for a crime she believes he didn’t commit?—Ireland was happy to lighten things up by taking EW‘s Pop Culture Personality Test. READ FULL STORY
Kate Hudson stopped by EW Radio’s “Bullseye” hour Tuesday to promote her new movie Wish I Was Here. Hosts Adam Markovitz, Tim Stack, and Tanner Stransky also got her chatting about so much more—dressing like a Game of Thrones Wildling last Halloween, why she gave up playing soccer, her mother Goldie Hawn’s best lines in Overboard, and her 10-year-old son Ryder’s friendship with Danny McBride. Listen to the full interview below. READ FULL STORY
Fans of VH1’s Hit the Floor (Mondays at 9 p.m. ET) last saw Dean Cain’s pro basketball coach Pete Davenport unconscious in his bed after another bender. Cain can’t tell you if Peter lives or dies, but he can share a great story about how his house was built as a direct response to an episode of The Brady Bunch that infuriated him. READ FULL STORY
FX has announced that the final season premiere of Sons of Anarchy will air Sept. 9 and be one hour and 45 minutes long. As EW reports in our Comic-Con Preview issue (on newsstands July 18), we’ll pick up 10 days after the tragic events of the season 6 finale. Jax will be behind bars, where he meets Ron Tully (Marilyn Manson), a white supremacist shot-caller whom he uses to expand his power base.
If seeing Jax in prison orange makes you uncomfortable, odds are you’re flashing back to season 5’s “Laying Pipe.” (Yes, the guys were wearing blue scrubs when Opie (Ryan Hurst) was killed, but they started and ended the episode in orange.) Jail has never been a safe place on SOA, which may also have you wondering if Manson’s recurring character will be long for this world. If you were signing on for Sons‘ epic final season, in which essentially everyone is expected to die, wouldn’t you hope to go out in a gloriously grisly way, too?
Let’s revisit the show’s history of prison deaths: READ FULL STORY

Tori Spelling and Jennie Garth reunion, move over. The Facts of Life alums Lisa Whelchel (Blair) and Kim Fields (Tootie) have reteamed to play wedding coordinators in a Hallmark Channel original movie, For Better or For Worse, which premieres July 19 at 9 p.m. ET. When Whelchel stopped by EW Radio (SiriusXM 105), EW Morning Live’s Jessica Shaw and Dan Snierson asked her to sing the Facts of Life theme song. And when she failed to remember more lyrics than Shaw, they asked her to compensate by sharing a secret from the set. It turns out George Clooney wasn’t that memorable of a kisser. READ FULL STORY
