(actually a promo for the rest of the season)
She is said to have split from City Of The Sun rocker Avi Snow just over two weeks ago.
But Lindsay Lohan already appears to have moved on.
The actress was spotted going on what is thought to be a date with wealthy Saudi producer Mohammed Al Turki on Tuesday evening.
That's one way to get his attention: Lindsay Lohan revealed her black lacy bra underneath a cream sheer top as she went on a date with wealthy Saudi producer Mohammed Al Turki on Tuesday evening in New York
The pair were seen heading to Broadway show The Orphans in New York City, where Lindsay is currently spending time with her family before she checks into rehab on May 2.
The 26-year-old Mean Girls star and the film producer, entrepreneur and philanthropist, who produced the 2012 thriller Arbitage starring Richard Gere, arrived together for the show but were 45 minutes late.
They were seen running inside to avoid missing any more of the first act.
Lindsay looked more like she was going to a rock concert that the theatre, wearing a very rock chic-inspired outfit for her evening out.
The flamed-haired star revealed her black lacy bra and her midriff in a sheer cream embellished top which she wore underneath a heavily spiked leather motorcycle jacket.
A pair of black jeans and simple black heels rounded out her look.
Despite it being near dark outside, the actress concealed her eyes with a pair of black-rimmed sunglasses and she wore her signature red hair up in a casual bun.
Lindsay also toted her accessory du jour, an oversized Goyard handbag.
Meanwhile, Mohammed looked suave in a pair of denim jeans, a black shirt and a black bomber jacket featuring red and white striped trim.
Bleary-eyed: It appeared the outing had tired the actress, as she appeared bleary-eyed as she made her way out amongst the theatre goers
Tardy: Earlier the couple rushed into the theatre after turning up 45 minutes late
Night at the theatre: Lindsay is currently enjoying time in New York before she checks into rehab on May 2
During the show, Lindsay made her way backstage where she posed for a happy snap with 30 Rock actor Alec Baldwin.
And after the performance had finished, Lindsay and Mohammad made their way back to their chauffeured car, with the actress's date gently patting her on the back.
And it appeared the outing had tired the actress, as she appeared bleary-eyed as she made her way out amongst the theatre goers.
This is not the first time Lindsay and Mohammed have enjoyed each other's company.
In fact, the pair go way back.
As recent as this February Lindsay was accompanied by the producer to New York's annual amfAR gala.
The duo posed on the red carpet together, even holding hands.
They also attended Lady Gaga's Fame perfume launch at New York's Guggenheim Museum last September.
The very wealthy Saudi is known as a big financial backer in Hollywood and has since gone on to be an executive producer on films, including Arbitrage and What Maisie Knew, starring Alexander Skarsgard.
Lindsay's date comes after she split from rocker Snow earlier this month.
Not the first time: As recent as this February Lindsay was accompanied by Mohammad to New York's annual amfAR gala
The Canyons actress - who began dating the City Of The Sun rocker last month - ended their brief romance, according to reports.
A source told E! News that Lindsay - who was sentenced to 90 days in rehab after pleading 'no contest' to charges for lying to police about driving during a car crash last June and must enter a treatment facility before May 2 - broke up with Avi after returning to Los Angeles from a party-filled business trip to Brazil.
Before leaving for South America, Lindsay attended one of his gigs and he claimed they were having a great time together.
He previously said: 'She's really awesome, and she's a lot of fun.'
The guitarist also revealed that Lindsay was a big fan of his group's music, saying: 'I would definitely call her one of our biggest supporters.'
The couple were then spotted kissing after his band performed at the 41 Ocean club in Santa Monica late last month.
Lindsay is legally bound to enter rehab by May 2 and seems to be making the most of her time while the date looms.
Once she completes rehab, which she has already been to five times since 2007, the actress will be required to perform 30 days of community service and 16 more months of psychotherapy as part of her plea bargain to escape jail for violating her probation.
ENTERCOM Active Rock KRXQ (98 ROCK)/SACRAMENTO has pulled locally-based syndicated morning show ROB, ARNIE AND DAWN off the air for the rest of the week after they aired a bit WEDNESDAY (4/17) in which the hosts spoke about making a "top 5" list of reasons to hate BOSTON.
The hiatus follows criticism from crosstown CBS RADIO Sports KHTK-A (CBS SPORTS RADIO 1140)/SACRAMENTO morning host DON GERONIMO, who ripped the trio for the bit and for spending some of TUESDAY's show asking whether it was too soon to joke about BOSTON.
On ROB, ARNIE AND DAWN's website, the show posted a statement criticizing KRXQ for taking the show off the air, calling GERONIMO "a SACRAMENTO radio host who would love to call himself a 'competitor,' but who instead is just another bottom-feeder looking and hoping for ways to better himself by disparaging and defaming us, our show and others in the local media market. Outrageously, he came out claiming that we in some way intended or were being insensitive or callous to the victims of the BOSTON tragedy. We refuse to stoop to this individual's despicable level, but instead want our listeners to know and understand that we did not, would not, and under no circumstances have intended in any way to have been insensitive, callous, dismissive, disparaging or otherwise to or of the victims of the BOSTON tragedy. To the contrary, of course we are and have been sickened, disgusted and angered at whomever the cowards (are) who carried out the senseless and disgraceful terrorist acts and the terrible injuries and harm caused to innocent victims."
The statement added, "For reasons unclear to us, our SACRAMENTO carrier, 98 ROCK (KRXQ), allowed itself to be bullied and misled by the local radio host who so grossly distorted truth and facts, and in 98 ROCK's ill-judgment, it informed us late WEDNESDAY evening that we are pulled off the air until MONDAY. We understand a radio station's desire and instinct to protect itself for economic and political purposes, but this is absurd. Our SACRAMENTO carrier has elected a knee-jerk reaction to a fabricated and manufactured smear campaign by a local thug who is more than happy and willing to politicize and sensationalize the BOSTON tragedy for his own short-term gain. To this, we at the ROB, ARNIE AND DAWN SHOW say, you're a sad, pathetic character, shame on you, and shame on 98 ROCK and their parent company, ENTERCOM COMMUNICATIONS.
"We encourage our faithful listeners and all other truth-seekers to call in and e-mail. As always, thank you for your support -- and you may hear us again in SACRAMENTO MONDAY!"
ENTERCOM VP/MARKET Manager SEAN SHANNON explained the decision to take ROB, ARNIE and DAWN Show off 98 ROCK with the following statement: "This MONDAY in BOSTON was a tragedy. There is nothing funny about it. We disagree with how ROB, ARNIE and DAWN treated those events and thus took their syndicated show off the air. We prefer the focus to be on our friends, colleagues and the city of BOSTON in this difficult time."
While 98 ROCK stuck with music in the show's absence, GERONIMO opened THURSDAY's show by playing clips of WEDNESDAY's ROB, ARNIE AND DAWN show, including joking about the "top 5 list" (with ROB saying that "that's how we express our solidarity with the people of BOSTON" and ARNIE adding that he'd never been to BOSTON, and claiming he could come up with nine things), discussing how a man whose legs were blown off while watching his girlfriend run could "hold that over her head forever," and asking whether it was too soon for jokes about BOSTON (with one of the three saying "no" while DAWN said "yes").
The hosts were also heard criticizing the NEW YORK YANKEES for playing "Sweet Caroline" ("that's disgusting") and OAKLAND A's fans for chanting "let's go BOSTON" in support of the stricken city (ROB saying "I'd have been standing with my hands in my pockets saying 'really?'") and PHILLIES centerfielder BEN REVERE for taping the words "Pray for BOSTON" on his glove.
I used to listen to this show religiously when I lived in Sacramento but it isn't available in my current area. I missed all of this entirely until I went to download some of this week's regular segments and found their apology on the front page. This isn't the first time they have been pulled off the air, though, so I am certainly not shocked it has happened again. ~ OP

Let's keep their biggest fan filmfreakfranco in our thoughts during this trying and difficult period
When we spoke with "Vampire Diaries" star Joseph Morgan a couple months ago about his upcoming turn as the lead of the spinoff "The Originals," he admitted he was a little bit nervous.
"I have to just take a chance on it," he told us then. "I am putting myself out there a bit, and I am a bit concerned, because I really want it to be a success, and I want to continue exploring this character. That worry comes with the job, doesn't it, really?"
These days, the worry has been replaced by anticipation. The backdoor pilot for the new show will air as an episode of "The Vampire Diaries" on Thursday, April 25. We spoke with Morgan on Tuesday about what fans can expect from "The Originals" -- a more adult tone, a lasting connection with Caroline, compelling new characters, and, of course, "one of the most disgusting emotional choices we've ever seen him make."
Check out our Q&A with Morgan below and don't miss the episode this Thursday at 8 p.m. EST on The CW.
Zap2it: "The Originals" is just two days away! There's been so much anticipation for this show. Are you nervous, at all, for the fans to finally see the pilot?
Morgan: I'm really excited for people to see it. I'm interested, because I've seen the pilot which was presented to the network and the studio, but that's a different version than what's going to air. The episode that's going to air has slightly more "Vampire Diaries" in it, as opposed to just "The Originals." They've got extra scenes. I know the network and the studio really like it, but it's going to depend on people's reactions. I really hope that people respond to the new characters that we introduce and to the storyline. Right now I'm just ready for it to be out there. I'm tired of the world not knowing what's happening, what the storylines are. I think it's time for people to see. There's been so much support and anticipation, I'm looking forward to the fans being rewarded for that.
Klaus's relationship with Elijah and Rebekah is as bad as it's ever been. At this point, it's hard to imagine them deciding to move to New Orleans as one big happy family. Will their relationship improve over the course of this episode?
Things are definitely getting more complicated, but I don't know if that's an improvement or not. At the beginning of the episode, it feels like there's a line. Klaus is on one end of it, Rebekah's on the other, and Elijah is sort of in the middle, the great mediator -- but also still kind of siding with Rebekah. He's trying to bring things together in the family, but I think the most interesting thing about "The Originals" is that their dynamics are complicated. There's certainly some hate for one another, there are things you think they'll never forgive each other for, but there's love as well. As an actor, I make a conscious decision that there's love. When he says these terrible things to Rebekah -- "You're not my family, you're not my sister, you're nothing to me" -- I think that I have to make him go to a place where he shuts off his emotion. He puts up a wall around how he feels for her, as opposed to not ever feeling for her. Those are the things which make it really interesting. I don't know if the relationship is going to improve or not, but I know it's going to have more layers.
Tell us about some of the new characters we'll meet. Camille [Leah Pipes], who has been set up as a love interest for Klaus, is the human figure in the show. From what I've heard, she's not an Elena Gilbert-esque ingenue.
"The Originals" has been pitched as a darker, more adult show, and Camille personifies that. She's the only human regular character that's in the show, but she comes at it very damaged. The characters in "Vampire Diaries," at the beginning, had experienced tragedy, but they came at it from a very innocent place. She's coming in much more jaded, with an understanding of darkness. I have one proper scene with her -- a few run-ins with her, but one proper scene -- and I think that's some of the best work I've done. Even though I don't say much in the scene, it was a challenge for me. I really like working with Leah. She makes interesting choices with Julie. She's a beautiful girl, but to me, she doesn't look like the majority of the fans out there who watch the show, for example. They might have a slightly harder time relating to her, which is what makes her so intriguing. She's a fantastic character.
We'll be meeting Marcel [Charles Michael Davis], who has been holding down the fort in New Orleans. From the trailer, it seems that Klaus is poised to overthrow him.
There's a history there, there's a friendship there, but absolutely Klaus is envious of what Marcel has managed to achieve in his absence. Klaus is by far the more powerful being -- he's an Original vampire, and he's a hybrid, all these things. Marcel is just a vampire, sired by Klaus. But what Marcel has that Klaus doesn't is this army. He runs the town, he runs the vampires, he has the witches in the palm of his hand. They can't do magic without his say-so. What he lacks in personal power, he makes up for in influence. Should things come to a head between the two of them, that's where the challenge will be. Klaus is a one-man army, but Marcel actually has an army.
It sounds as if Marcel has managed to create the family that Klaus wanted, but couldn't create with the hybrids.
That's very astute of you, yeah, because that's absolutely where the envy and the jealousy comes from. Also, people just like Marcel. The characters respond to him; he's charismatic. Klaus doesn't have that, and he can't understand it. He mistrusts people, people betray him, and he betrays them. He doesn't have the leadership qualities Marcel has. He's envious of the charisma this guy has.
Will there be much talk of Caroline in this episode? If Klaus is gearing up to relocate to New Orleans, I imagine she'd be the biggest motivation to stay in Mystic Falls.
It's made reference to in the episode. Klaus makes reference to it and it's acknowledged in the writing toward the end. It's not like he's in this new place and he's like "Well, forget her!" I think the ideal thing for Klaus would be for her to come to New Orleans, and he's still enamored with her. They're not going to introduce a new love interest and immediately go, "Hey, he's with this girl now!" They respect the fans enough to keep acknowledging Caroline and potentially work in some crossovers.
Could there be a last minute twist, with Candice Accola joining "The Originals"?
I think "Vampire Diaries" would suffer greatly losing Caroline Forbes. I really feel that wouldn't be good for that show, for her to come over to "The Originals," and we've got to keep the balance now that the world's got bigger. There's two shows to maintain, potentially, so they might be in a bit of a long-distance relationship, if anything, for a while.
What about Hayley [Phoebe Tonkin]? Is she a viable love interest for Klaus, or was their hookup a one-time thing?
I think that's kind of a one-time thing. I think there's going to be some resolve, some of the aftermath of their liason in the episode. We'll see how they feel about it and how it's affected them both. He's not looking to rekindle that, and I think neither is she. I really loved that that happened between them, because it just goes to show the flawed nature of Klaus' character. I think it was a very bold choice of Julie and the writers, because they absolutely knew the repercussions that it would have, the backlash from all the fans. The Klaus and Caroline fans hate that she'd done that, but he's always been a flawed character. He's in no way perfect. He's made more mistakes in his lifetime than hundreds of people combined, so to show him make a mistake in that way -- I mean, he's a guy, to show him respond to his nature, his instinct -- I think that's a bold and right choice. I supported that.
Now that Klaus is the central figure of the show, should we expect to see him as the hero of this story, or is he still maintaining his villain status?
I think I'd go as far as to say anti-hero. He's definitely not a hero. He does awful things in the pilot; he makes one of the most disgusting emotional choices we've ever seen him make. He's not the villain of this piece. We're rooting for him -- I hope we're rooting for him, or the show's not going to work. That's what attracted me to the show. I would've never thought that the guy who came in and slaughtered Aunt Jenna could have his own show and people would actually be hoping he'd succeed. I think as long as we keep showing the cracks, the glimpses of vulnerability, we'll root for him. He's an anti-hero. I think, if I stand for anything, it's that if this goes to series, the eventual tale could be the tale of Klaus's salvation.

People magazine awarded Paltrow the title for 2013 in their latest issue. The cover boasts that Paltrow has a “timeless look."
The “Iron Man 3” actress told the magazine her kids, Apple and Moses, can’t tell the difference. She said around them, she spends much more time in comfy clothes than she does looking glamorous.
"Around the house, I'm in jeans and a T-shirt. I don't really wear makeup. That's what they're used to.”
And her husband Chris Martin doesn’t mind her casual at-home style, she said.
"He'll make a joke about it. If I've gotten fully dressed up, he'll be like, 'Oh, wow! You're Gwyneth Paltrow!' Because he's used to seeing me in like baggy shorts and frizzy hair."
Paltrow said her workout routine, which she does five days a week, keeps her looking young.
"It makes me look younger and feel strong," she said. "When I first started, I thought, 'I'll never be good at this. This is a nightmare!' But now it's like brushing my teeth, I just do it."
Freida Pinto was the only celebrity invited to be a guest speaker at a meeting about gender equality in education which was held at World Bank recently.Others who spoke at this event includes UN Secretary Ban Ki Moon,World Bank President Jim Yong Kim and UK Sec. of State for Int'l Development Justine Greening.
Eight luminaries of eight different nationalities have joined the jury of the Cannes Film Festival, led this yearfor the first timeby Steven Spielberg — including Austrian actor (and two-time Oscar winner) Christoph Waltz, Taiwanese director (and two-time Oscar winner) Ang Lee, and Australian actress (and… one-time Oscar winner) Nicole Kidman.
Rock legend David Bowie has gone all religious on his fans if his latest video is anything to go by.
67 66-year-old music stalwart was on the set of his latest music video for The Next Day in New York in monk robes, flat shoes and a long brown scarf.
Bowie, who has released 24 albums spanning a thirty year career, even roped in his old pal Gary Oldman to star in the music video.
No clues were given by Bowie what the video was about but by the looks of things it involves a dispute over religion.
The video was shot at the American Legion building and many of the extras were wearing similar religious themed clothes.
With a new album out Bowie is enjoying a revived success.
But it may not stop there.
In an interview with Absolute Radio Noel Gallagher said: 'According to people I've spoken to, there’s another album in the pipeline. There was, like, 29 songs or something.'
Gallagher admitted that he didn't know when the musician might release the new album, saying: "He could disappear for another ten years or there could be another album. He might do the greatest tour of all time or he might never gig again. Who knows?"
There have been rumours regarding a future Bowie tour since the release of The Next Day, his 24th album, earlier this year.
May the glam be with you
NBC is giving Hannibal fans a chance to feast on the show’s fourth episode, which was pulled from the schedule ahead of this week’s airing in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings.
The network is incorporating footage from the lost hour into a series of ”cannibalized” webisodes that will serve as a narrative bridge between Episode 3 and this Thursday’s Episode 5 (NBC, 10/9c) — and TVLine has an exclusive first look at the debut installment (featuring an introduction from exec producer Bryan Fuller).
As Fuller explains, Ep 4 “details the relationship between Hannibal Lector and Abigail Hobbs, played by Kacey Rohl,” explains Fuller. “As the series goes on, this relationship gets much more complicated and becomes a load-bearing element of our storytelling. So we wanted to make sure that you have all the scenes to follow the story along.”
In the first part below — more clips will debut on NBC.com — Dr. Lector has a therapy session with Will Graham, and then secretly inspects the profiler’s home before getting a taste of blood.
You can watch the video here because it won't embed :((
Really glad they're putting this up before the episode airs, but the casual viewer still won't have any idea about these online clips bridging the episodes. Hopefully this doesn't hurt its ratings.
Braff tells THR that he turned to Kickstarter over financiers because, "When you’re trying to make these smaller personal art films, the idea of giving final cut away to someone else, it doesn’t make any sense for me."
Zach Braff is hoping the internet will kickstart his writing/directing career back to life.
The long-time Scrubs actor, who scored a cult classic hit with his 2004 writing/directing debut Garden State, has launched a Kickstarter fundraising page in search of $2 million to power his next film, Wish I Was Here. Oscar-nominated power players Stacey Sher and Michael Shamburg will produce the project, which Braff co-wrote with his brother Adam.
Already, Jim Parsons has been revealed as a co-star in the film, while Braff tells THR that he hopes to work with many of the same people that he has teamed with in the past. The movie, about a struggling actor who agrees to homeschool his young son, will be set in Hollywood but -- as a nod to Braff's roots -- feature characters originally from New Jersey.
This is the latest A-List powered project to turn to the internet for cash. Rob Thomas and Kristen Bell launched a campaign to fund a film version of their cult hit CW show Veronica Mars in the middle of March. Seeking $2 million, that project captured the imagination of fervent fans and Hollywood observers, earning a cool $5.7 million by the end of the campaign. That success inspired Braff, who says he struggled putting together financing for various other films since Garden State.
"I tried to make a couple of films within the studio system and also with traditional independent financing," he explained to THR in an early morning phone call. "I always hit roadblocks, whether it was having to cast a certain person or having to retain final cut with the success of Garden State. With this movie, I’m so passionate about this movie I was really about to sign on the dotted line with a traditional financing arrangement, and it’s been ten years, God I want to make a movie more than anything. I’ll do whatever you want, I’ll give away final cut, I’ll put your brother in it, whatever."
Once Thomas' success became apparent, Braff decided to test the waters himself. He recalls a conversation he had with Gary Gilbert, the businessman who financed Garden State. He was initially brought in as an equity partner for a mini major studio that was going to back the film, but told Braff the idea that they would receive so little money based on any success left him scratching his head. Instead, he offered to make that film for $2.5 million, which Braff accepted.
"And now this many years later, I’m saying again to myself, God, the current model I'm being asked to sign just doesn’t sit right in my stomach," Braff explained. "I don’t want to cast those people, I don’t want to do those many things on that list required of me to get that money, including giving up final cut, because I’ve been in test screenings and I’ve seen the way one person’s commentary can steer the whole way that a financier wants a movie to go. I’m not going to do that with this film, because it’s too important to me, it’s too close to my heart. Now financiers are fine for lots of projects and it works out perfectly for many movies, but when you’re trying to make these smaller personal art films, the idea of giving final cut away to someone else, it doesn’t make any sense for me."
After Thomas raised all that money for the Veronica Mars movie, some suggested that big projects could cannibalize Kickstarter, which has been used by entrepreneurs and filmmakers with little to none of their own capital. Braff, like Thomas before him, disagreed.
"We’re bringing a lot of people to Kickstarter, and hopefully they click on ours and then they say 'Wait a minute, what’s that gadget? What’s that lamp? What’s that documentary?’" he said. "I think there’s room for everybody on there, I don’t think it detracts at all."
The project offers varying levels of rewards for contributions, with a $10,000 gift earning a role with a line in the film. For $8,000, fans can see an early screening and give suggestions for the final cut, and $1,000 earns a premiere and after party invitation.
Not all celebrity-backed projects have worked.
Less successful was Extreme Realities, an environmental documentary featuring Matt Damon. It raised pledges for only $45,000 of the $75,000 it sought, meaning that it received none of the money.
More recently, James Franco sought $10,000 to fund a performance art piece in New York City.
Braff was most recently seen in Oz the Great and Powerful, the massive Disney film that has pulled in nearly $478 million worldwide.

Lets see how ONTD reacts to this. Is it going to be "think of the lowly crew members and you get stuff for donating" or "this looks like begging"?
Divergent, the highly anticipated adaptation of the first book in Veronica Roth’s best-selling YA series, only recently began filming on location in Chicago. But Shailene Woodley, who stars as heroine Beatrice “Tris” Prior, tells EW that the younger members of the Neil Burger-directed movie — which includes Ashley Judd, Kate Winslet, Theo James and Zoë Kravitz — have already clicked. “It’s a good group,” she says. “We’re hanging out on weekends, celebrating birthdays. Everyone just wants to get to know one another. It’s rare to get a big group together and not have any conflicts. It’s really kind of amazing.”
Divergent takes place in a dystopian future where society is divided up into five factions. In this exclusive photograph, Tris is taking the place of a fellow Dauntless initiate, and must stand still while knives are thrown at her head. “It’s about being selfless and standing up for what’s right,” Woodley says. But don’t worry about those knives: “They’re just rubber,” she says.
The "Veronica Mars" movie's reunions won't only take place in front of the camera. Rob Thomas needed help writing the script, so he recruited one of the show's original — and best — writers in Diane Ruggiero to do it with him.
"I had the outline and the first act of the movie written when we launched Kickstarter," Thomas explains. "I had no idea the craziness that would ensue once we launched. I was under the naive impression that I'd be able to handle knocking out the script while handling the sundry demands of running the fundraising -- the press, questions about T-shirt artwork, etc. The day we launched we received 20,000 emails. The press requests and questions that arose about the specifics of the campaign was almost a full time job."
Enter Ruggiero, who was part of the show's original writing staff, and who wrote what Thomas calls "our high-water mark," season 1's "A Trip to the Dentist," where Veronica finds out the truth about the night she was raped. Ruggiero was also a major contributor to the darkly comic voice of the series, and Thomas says it was great to have her for reasons beyond lightening the workload.
"She was really my right hand writing the series," he says, "and it felt good to have someone who knew the voices as well as I did. We were both in a comfort zone, both writing this show and writing with each other."
One month from now, all of your questions will be answered. What dysfunctional disasters have befallen our Bluths since we last saw them in 2006? Did Buster survive that last seal confrontation with his other hand intact? Is the stair car now a hybrid? (Probably not.) And, oh, yes, will the new Arrested Development episodes scratch that seven-year-wait of an itch?
But maybe you can’t wait another month. You need some answers now. So make yourself a breakfast of champions — vodka rocks and a piece of toast, perhaps — and check out this week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly, which celebrates AD with three collector’s covers and fills you in on the revival of one of this century’s most beloved cult comedies. On May 26, Netflix will release 15 new episodes of Arrested all at once, and they are intended to serve as a set-up to that long-anticipated movie (which is not yet greenlighted). We spoke with all nine cast members as well as series creator/executive producer Mitchell Hurwitz about the surprisingly emotional reunion, what to expect from this batch of episodes, and more. “This year is about the enduring entanglements of family,” Hurwitz explains of the new season. “They are 10 years older than when we met, so that means emotionally they’re, like, two years older than we met them. Amazing things happen when one goes from being emotionally 12 years old to emotionally being 14 years old.” Or, as Will Arnett, a.k.a. misguided magician Gob, declares: “It’s the story of shame, cunning, thievery, dishonor, backstabbing, deceit, bold-faced lying, one-upmanship, psychological torture, lust, financial ruin, and magic, all supported by a very broad beam of dysfunctional love.”
This batch of episodes won’t play out exactly like the Arrested of old, as the producers worked around the limited availability of the actors, who were tied up with other projects. Each installment chronicles the adventures of a particular Bluth over the last seven years, with several other characters making appearances as well. The episodes are designed to work as a whole — as jokes and plots from one episode may pay off in a later one — taking advantage of the Netflix paradigm. “When Mitch started to get his arms around how all the action could happen simultaneously and there was an ability to stop one episode, start another, and have all this crossover and braided plotting,” says series star Jason Bateman, “it became clear that he was going to try to accomplish something incredibly ambitious, the kind of escalation that the audience would expect from him.”

Arrow Exclusive: Emily Bett Rickards on Felicity in the Field, A Romance with Oliver and More!
Felicity Smoak won us over the minute she began appearing on Arrow, but life is about to get a lot more complicated for our computer expert.
In fact, life-threatening danger is right around the corner upon the return of this CW smash, with Miss Smoak right in the middle of it.
In this week’s episode, “Home Invasion,” Deadshot returns to stir things up for Ollie and crew, while in the May 1st episode (“The Undertaking") Felicity leaves the computer for a change and goes out in the field.
Last week, I sat down with Emily Bett Rickards to talk about what Deadshot does to our heroes, how Felicity will cope with being in the field and whether she’s on board with a possible Ollie/Felicity romance...
TV Fanatic: Deadshot is a big part of the next episode and I know Felicity becomes involved in the hunt for him but does she come face-to-face with him? Does she interact with him at all?
Emily Bett Rickards: No. She’s got a big involvement in what happens about whether Deadshot is caught or not and we get to see tension around Deadshot and within our trio within Diggle, Felicity, and Oliver and that’s what the episode revolves around Deadshot seems to get in the way of our groove.
TVF: So is Deadshot trying to get into your heads just so he can screw with the dynamic?
EBR: He’s doing it unintentionally, but it’s happening.
TVF: In the ‘Undertaken’ episode when Felicity goes into the field, how was that to play?
EBR: I love Felicity when she’s not in the Foundry. I love her in the Foundry but she even says ‘re-circulate the air and no coffee. What’s going on down here?’ She’s obviously frightened. She’s out in the field but she secretly loves it. She probably watched a lot of spy movies. I mean, she knows what’s going on.
TVF: Does she find that she’s more capable than she might realize?
EBR: I find she is capable. She does find herself becoming more comfortable out on the field as time goes on and it’s interesting the way that she’s being written and the way I’ve looked for little treasures in the script and things.
When she starts to play a character when she’s out on the field she’s more comfortable. It’s really interesting because then you see Felicity slip through and then she kind of composes herself back and it’s like ‘okay I can do this,’ I can be somebody else for 20 minutes or whatever.
TVF: I know you’ve been getting questioned a lot about Olly and Felicity. She definitely, you can tell, has moony eyes over him. Duh?
EBR: How do you not? He’s a babe for one, but he’s also opening up to her, which is not something that he normally does. She can feel that, I think. We can feel that when somebody opens up to us when there is sort of a brick wall usually. Also, he saved her life when she had a bomb collar around her neck. He’s going to save her life again in future episodes so her heart’s pounding a little bit.
TVF: If you were in the writers' room would you want something to happen or do you think it’s better to tease it out?
EBR: I don’t know. I mean, it would be awesome to see. I think the tension is also very intriguing for audience members. I think that’s always a great thing even when you reading a book or watching a show [and] you’re just waiting. Is it going to happen or you’re just heartbroken or left at the end of a movie or something like that, elated or that sort of thing. Yeah, I’m not sure what I would write. I’m not the writer.
TVF: And all this about Ollie and Felicity but what about Diggle? He’s got those big arms.
EBR: They’re actually the size of my thigh. They’re huge. Why not with Diggle right? David Ramsey!
TVF: You said Ollie saves her life again. Does he end up having it jump in and help her in “Undertaken?”
EBR: He does have to help her. She’s out on the field, but she is five foot five little blonde girl so you know she can’t really take down any big muscular guys or anything like that if this were to happen.
TVF: Felicity is always so together and focused at work. Do you think her home life would be the opposite of that?
EBR: I always wonder when I play a character if I would be friends with them or whether or not they would be friends with me and I think I would probably be friends with Felicity because she’s really smart, but she probably wouldn’t be friends with me because my apartment is a little messy.
TVF: Ever since Felicity began appearing, the fans have just gone crazy for her. Does that add any pressure to you?
EBR: No. I never dreamed in a million years that this was how it was going to be. Pressure? No, it’s just really nice. It’s a compliment to the writers and to the team and I’m really grateful, as well. I think it’s fun.
TVF: Who do you think is the bigger fashionista? Felicity or Emily?
EBR: Oh, we’re different. I own leather, I'm pretty sure she owns nothing leather. One of the first episodes working with David, I was leaving set and I said good bye to him and I was dressed in my regular clothes and he looked at me and he goes, “Oh, my gosh I had no idea that was you.” I think I was wearing a black leather bomber jacket you know, something normal in Vancouver cold weather. He just had no idea it was me.
TVF: A lot of the characters on this show have secrets. Do we know if Felicity has any secrets?
EBR: We don’t really get into when she has secrets besides the fact that she’s carrying this huge secret that she knows who the vigilante is…but she’s got her own little secrets. Everyone does, but she’s open with all of them. We don’t really get to see her devouring or holding any back quite yet.
TVF: You came on the show it had already been airing. What was the biggest surprise working with Stephen?
EBR: Working with Stephen was great. He has been continuously offering his help because I’m green to the industry. Well, since Felicity has become more popular there are new avenues that I’m searching and he’s been such a great help. Everyone on this show has been like, ‘anything you need just talk to us.’ Everyone has been really helpful. I think I’m surviving.
'Arrow': 'Olicity,' Felicity's First Solo Mission And More Intel From Emily Bett Rickards And Marc Guggenheim
"Arrow" returns on April 24, and as the episode's title "Home Invasion" suggests, things will hit close to home for Oliver (Stephen Amell), and his allies Diggle (David Ramsey) and Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards).
The Huffington Post recently caught up with Rickards and executive producer Marc Guggenheim to preview what's ahead in the final four episodes of Season 1 and discuss the show's compelling relationships, including the unexpected popularity of what fans have termed "Olicity," the chemistry between troubled vigilante Oliver and tech-guru Felicity -- despite Oliver already being caught up in a potent love triangle with his ex-girlfriend Laurel (Katie Cassidy) and best friend Tommy (Colin Donnell). Superheroes really are chick magnets.
But first things first: Guggenheim previewed what fans can expect from "Home Invasion," which will see our hooded hero "torn between the two closest people in his life ... Diggle and Laurel. It’s really about, 'Where do Oliver’s deeper loyalties lie?' The choice that he makes in Episode 20 will have far-reaching consequences for the remainder of the season."
That conflict stems from the reemergence of Deadshot (Michael Rowe), the assassin who killed Diggle's brother. "In Episode 16, Diggle learned that Deadshot, who he previously thought Oliver had killed, was still running around alive. So, he’s been kind of obsessed with finding his brother’s killer and bringing him to his version of justice. That all comes to a head in ["Home Invasion"]," Guggenheim said. "But unfortunately, it comes to a head at the same time as Laurel is facing a new problem of her own. So Oliver finds himself torn in two different directions."
And while Laurel is never far from Oliver's mind, it's obvious that the writers are also paying attention to the sudden popularity of the "Olicity" dynamic. Guggenheim was recently teasing fans on Twitter with Oliver and Felicity quotes from upcoming episodes, and the executive producer admitted, "That's just been so much fun to do ... I had no idea it would be engendering such a response."
As for whether fans would be satisfied with those lines in context, Guggenheim was coy. "I think there’s a lot of really great moments between Oliver and Felicity in the final four episodes of the season. That’s really what people will respond to. There’s a scene that they share in Episode 22 where just the chemistry is just so palpable. I was actually just on set telling Stephen that you really feel there’s a lot of chemistry and heat between the two of them. So, the shippers are only going to get louder post-Episode 22."
Still, the EP added, "the final four episodes really are about this love triangle of Oliver, Laurel and Tommy. That’s the love triangle that we began the series with so we felt it appropriate to finish the season with a focus on it. That love triangle really starts to come to a boil with Wednesday’s episode, Episode 20. That kicks us off for the remaining three episodes of the season after that. The truth of the matter is that we sort of have to play that out first before we can play out Oliver and Felicity. But I love the fact that people are shipping them. It really is exciting. There’s nothing but love for Felicity among all the people involved in the show. So, stay tuned. But in the meantime, I gained a lot of satisfaction by teasing people."
Read on for our conversation with Rickards on her reaction to the Oliver/Felicity shippers and what's ahead for our favorite IT whiz, including a solo mission and characters she's hoping to work with.
People have really embraced Felicity so passionately, both in terms of her character and her chemistry with Oliver. What's your reaction been to that, being at the center of it all?
It’s so interesting to me because before Felicity, I haven’t been able to explore a character on TV as well as this, and seeing that evolve and watching the fans' reaction, watching the show, knowing what we felt in the scene, knowing what we felt reading it, is all strange along the same lines. It’s really interesting to see what people can pick up on. Because as Felicity, my first scene I ever did -- that I thought was going to be the only scene I was going to do with Oliver -- obviously I was thinking, “OK, Felicity thinks he’s hot.” He walks in there and he’s got that jaw and I’m sure he’s got abs, and I’m in glasses and a really unflattering pink-colored shirt -- which is flattering for Felicity. [Laughs.] I’m glad they want that to happen, because it’s the girl behind glasses trying to win the superhero, and that’s just sort of sweet. It would be nice for it to happen, but it’s also nice having the tension, because everyone loves the tension, the tightrope.
Marc has been teasing the fans on Twitter, throwing out Oliver and Felicity lines from Episodes 21 and 22 ...
He is good at that isn’t he? He has some good lines coming out.
Do you think they'll be what fans are expecting, in context? Do you think they'll be satisfying or disappointing when we actually see them?
I don’t think even I can guarantee Felicity’s delivery on any of these lines, because a lot of them are momentary. They only happen once a certain way, because they are all very unfiltered, those lines that Marc's giving out, with the underlying double entendres ... I think they'll always be happy with how they come out -- I sure hope so.
What can you preview about this week's episode and what Felicity will be up to when Deadshot resurfaces?
She’s doing her thing behind the computer. She’s tracking people, she’s finding people, she’s trying to help the team, and she’s also trying to keep the camaraderie and relationship between Oliver and Diggle and Felicity strong. She doesn’t want it to falter or tip more. With tension -- and breaking through tension -- in any sort of relationship, friendship, family, love, that sort of thing, you get through tension and it makes us stronger. I think what Felicity would always rather do is avoid tension completely. We get to see the balance of Felicity, Oliver and Diggle’s trio waiver. The scales are tipping.
Are the guys actually going to come to blows with Felicity caught in the middle?
Yeah, Felicity gets to spend a little bit more time with Oliver, which I’m sure everyone will be happy with, and she gets to spend time with Diggle too, and she’s trying to be neutral -- she's Switzerland. She knows that they need to figure it out, but she’s just trying to help it move along faster, because there are lives at stake. “Come on, guys! There are people going to die here. There are arrows being shot, and somebody has a gun!"
Next week's episode, "The Undertaking," will see Felicity's first mission in the field alone. What can you reveal about that?
We get to see her out in the field and she’s playing a character, which is also kind of fun. The character has a name actually, so that’s kind of cool. We get to see her sort of step across dangerous borders, and she’s voluntarily putting herself out there. She does volunteer herself to do it. It is extremely dangerous. She has her superhero on standby, but that is the last resort. Her going out on the field is a last resort, and Oliver coming into the field that she’s on is also a last resort, so there are stakes and danger with both situations. We do [also] get to find out a little bit more about Walter [Colin Salmon], and I think the audience will be really happy with where it leads.
We've seen Diggle and Oliver trying to train her in hand-to-hand combat. Is she going to be fighting while she's out in the field?
Not quite. She doesn’t get into close quarters combat quite yet. I think what the training with Diggle and Oliver is doing is building her confidence as well. Just being able to protect yourself in any sort of way or feeling strength, you do become more confident, and I think that’s really important for her. She does volunteer herself in this episode to go out on to the field, and that has to come from confidence. It has to come from some sort of self-security in some way. In Episode 3, there was no way that she was going to be, ”Hey, I’m going to go out and look at a gun." She would be like, “I’m never going to look at a gun ever.”
We don't know much about the penultimate episode, "Darkness on the Edge of Town." Is there anything you're allowed to tease?
The finale …people think it’s going to be big. It’s going to be huge. [Episode] 22 could be a finale -- 22 is also huge, so if you think 22 is huge, what is 23? I don't know: it's enormous.
Might we see a Dark Archer encounter before the end of the season? Obviously, she wouldn't be going head to head with him, but perhaps crossing paths?
We don’t see them going head to head. We do see Felicity learning more about the Dark Archer, as Diggle, Felicity and Oliver learn more about the Dark Archer ... There are episodes that are going to revolve around the Dark Archer, which is really fun, but no.
Felicity has mostly been involved with her core trio so far. Have you had the opportunity to work with characters outside of Diggle and Oliver in the final few episodes?
No Roy, no Thea -- hopefully in Season 2. We do get to see Felicity meet more characters out and about. I was thrilled, personally as a selfish Emily Rickard sort of thing: ”I get to work with more of the cast!” because we hang out, but working with them is totally different. So yeah, Felicity does get to meet more characters, and that’s exciting. It's just nice to see people meet ... I always find it really interesting watching people meet on the street, do you know what I mean? And we never actually get to see it unless you’re really looking for it, and you never really know who the people are, so it’s always interesting in a show or a movie to see characters meet, just cross paths, or say hi, or “Sorry, I bumped into you.” Those things are always really cool. I love that sort of stuff. Felicity gets to say hi to Laurel at some point, but you’ll have to watch for that.
As the freshman season wraps up, Felicity returns to the field, and the deeper she goes, the "more emotionally involved" she gets, Rickards tells THR.
Felicity Smoak isn't just an IT girl, she's turning into one valuable asset on Arrow.
After starting off on The CW superhero drama as a supporting player, the doe-eyed, socially inept tech whiz aiding Oliver Queen/Arrow (Stephen Amell) with his technological inefficiencies became a fan favorite, to the point where producers made Felicity part of the series' central mythology -- and promoted actress Emily Bett Rickards to series regular status.
For Rickards, the response was a shock to the system. "I didn't really understand what a fanbase meant," Rickards admits to The Hollywood Reporter. "I'm glad I'm playing a character who's intelligent and brave and facing huge situations, and being real in how she's facing them."
One of the few people aware of Oliver's double life, Felicity will be facing another big test when she heads back out onto the field, a task she's (hopefully) better prepared for in her second go-around. In a chat with THR, Rickards previews Felicity's return to danger, more "Olicity" moments and why viewers should prepare themselves for the final episodes of the season.
The Hollywood Reporter: Congratulations on becoming a series regular for season two. Have you thought about what next season could bring for you and your character?
Emily Bett Rickards: I get to learn more about Felicity. It's funny when I wrapped on Friday (April 12), I was like, "Wait a second, so am I saying goodbye to her for three months? How does that work?" I'm playing with that right now. I'd be so sad if I had to say goodbye forever. I'd probably be crying right now.
THR: Can you talk a little bit about the Oliver and Felicity moments? Those tend to bring out another side to Oliver that we don't see a lot of.
Rickards: The moments between Oliver and Felicity, they're interesting because they really organically happened when Stephen and I are on-set. Stephen and I don't talk about "Olicity," and Felicity and Oliver don't talk about Olicity. It's really interesting. I've never been able to explore a character this deeply especially going into the second season. Those moments are proof of a friendship, which is important in any relationship too, that's just going to grow and become stronger and more honest.
THR: Felicity gets back into the field in an upcoming episode. What should we expect there?
Rickards: She ventures out once again. We saw in episode 15, she was all dolled up in an art gallery with her bomb collar and that was the first time we saw Felicity in the field, which she didn't quite like because she had a bomb collar around her neck. She volunteers to do it again in episode 21. There's a huge period of time [between], and she's been training with Diggle (David Ramsey) and Oliver, learning more and she's significantly more involved since [episode] 15 for her own morals and judgments. She's changing in how she looks at things. She's becoming more emotionally involved in what is going on with the undertaking, the book, the Glades. She wants to protect people who are going out in the field. She puts her life at risk. She's not working behind a computer, she's dealing with people, which is hard for her.
THR: With her being so socially awkward?
Rickards: She's extremely socially awkward, but I think that's why it's so important for her to go out. You go and you face your fears, and that's maybe the simplest fear -- not to be underrated -- because there are lives at stake and there are guns all around. There are a lot of armed people around, lots of danger when she goes out and she's doing it by herself, so that'll be interesting for the audience.
THR: Will she get herself into a bind?
Rickards: She needs help and she gets help. You've seen her do a little bit of training. You've seen her fall on a mat with Diggle and Oliver, but what we can expect, looking at Felicity she's not going to be able to take on a big, bulky guy. There's just no way. She's going to need help if she gets into a terrible situation which might happen.
THR: Will different shades of Felicity be uncovered?
Rickards: What I like about when she goes out the second time, she is able to fully commit. She becomes braver, she realizes she can play a character and do this, that she doesn't have to be herself.
THR: It seems like on any given day, one other person is let in on Oliver's secret that he's Arrow. Is there a limit to how many people can know?
Rickards: In "The Huntress Returns" we had Felicity, Diggle, Tommy (Colin Donnell) and Helena (Jessica De Gouw) all on-set and in the same scene -- we're coming in and out of the Foundry -- and you could just see Oliver be like "There are too many people who know my secret!" That's extremely dangerous for his protection and our protection. He's playing a dangerous game with people he's telling.
THR: How would you describe the final episodes of the season?
Rickards: When we get to episode 22, Stephen has said this too: It is so big that it can be the finale. You would expect that to be the end, and then we're going to episode 23, and it's even bigger. If we ran both episodes 22 and 23 on the same night, there'd be a lot of strokes happening. [Laughs]
THR: Any specific moments you can point to?
Rickards: There are some Olicity moments, don't worry, and there's a really nice Diggle/Felicity moment too. You get to see her be introduced to a few more characters on the show. I can tell you she doesn't meet Roy [Harper, played by Colton Haynes]. People are expecting her to meet Roy in this season and she doesn't.
THR: Where does Felicity end up at the end of the season?
Rickards: The season finale's called "Sacrifice." If the audience wants to play treasure hunter and really look at the title, every single character in the show is sacrificing something huge. I think every scene you break down, there's a huge sacrifice. You guys will be invested in it, and heartbroken and moved and hopefully you don't have a stroke.
THR: Have the producers given any clues as to what's in store for Felicity and Oliver's partnership in season two?
Rickards: What I know is she's a strong part of that team. She is Team Vigilante, Team Arrow. She is that and I know that. I haven't been given any clues about Olicity, I don't know who Felicity is going to be meeting.
THR: What do you want to see in the new season?
Rickards: I want to see Felicity's home life. I would love for the fans to see her -- for my own selfish purposes -- do some combat. I would love to work with our stunt director.

She's great and I hope they continue to develop her character in season 2.
Bradley Cooper has seemingly put his latest love interest, British model Suki Waterhouse, on the back burner. Life & Style has learned that the Hangover star, 38, shared a very touchy-feely brunch with actress Rachel McAdams, 34, at Santa Monica’s Cora’s Coffee Shoppe on April 14.
“Bradley happily spent nearly two hours with Rachel, flirting and laughing over their meal,” an eyewitness says in the new issue of Life & Style, on newsstands now. “He seemed very into her.”
Strolling into the eatery with matching motorcycle helmets in hand, the couple sat down at the counter. A fellow diner dishes to Life & Style, “Rachel put her hand on his back and he put his on her shoulder. They were laughing and talking, and Bradley would not take his eyes off of her!” Although Bradley’s rep refused to comment, the onlooker confirmed to Life & Style, “It definitely seemed like they were a couple. At one point Rachel put her hand on his hips and he was talking very close to her.”
This isn’t the first time Bradley and Rachel, who recently split from boyfriend of two years Michael Sheen, have been spotted getting cozy. In March, Bradley, Rachel and Emma Stone dined at the Four Seasons Hotel in Boston amid reports that the trio will star in an upcoming film together. And perhaps Bradley's The Place Beyond the Pines co-star Ryan Gosling can give him some advice when it comes to Rachel. Ryan dated the actress, with whom he starred in 2004's The Notebook, on and off for three years!
