We here at Tube Talk are long-time fans of E4's Misfits - we had a camera crew on-set way back during filming of series one, before anyone knew what a sensation the show would become....
And it seems that our readers are pretty fond of the show too -- a 2010 video interview with the drama's then-stars Robert Sheehan (Nathan) and Lauren Socha (Kelly) is currently the fourth most-viewed clip on our official YouTube account, ranking alongside the likes of reality behemoth The X Factor and huge movie franchises Harry Potter and the Dark Knight trilogy.
The team behind the show -- led by creator Howard Overman -- faced an unenviable challenge last year when they were tasked with finding a replacement for the charismatic Sheehan, but the addition of This Is England's Joseph Gilgun as the raucous Rudy was a masterstroke and the show's third series continued to attract critical acclaim and solid ratings.
A fourth series debuts on Channel 4 this Sunday (October 28) at 10pm and once again Overman and company are embracing change -- with stars Lauren Socha (Kelly), Iwan Rheon (Simon) and Antonia Thomas (Alisha) all departing at the end of the last run, it's a fresh start for Misfits with several new faces jumping on board...
Jess (Karla Crome)
The character - Our first newbie is "tough cookie" Jess, who has the power to "see through people's bulls**t" -- oh, and we mean that quite literally. The feisty character -- who ends up on community service in episode 4.1 -- is gifted with the power of x-ray vision. OMG, why is the only girl on this show (for now) stuck with such a lame, passive power???
The star - The phrase "rising star" might be thrown around a lot, but it certainly applies to Karla Crome, who first came to our attention in Sky Atlantic's Hit & Miss and subsequently blew us away with a phenomenal performance in August's one-off BBC thriller Murder.
Finn (Nathan McMullen) Enough with the Nathans!!!
The character - Cheeky, baby-faced Liverpudlian Finn is the second new character to don the famous orange jumpsuit this series and aside from a possible romantic interest in Jess, the newcomer also develops a serious 'bromantic' connection with Rudy... Nooo! I want Rudy/Curtis bromance, dammit.
And his power is telekinesis
The star - Nathan McMullen's past credits include a two-episode stint on Casualty and a memorable role in the ninth series of Channel 4's Shameless -- the 24-year-old previously auditioned for a smaller role in series three of Misfits but impressed producers so much that he was asked back to play the regular role of Finn.
Alex (Matt Stokoe) Way too many male characters...
He's the one on the far right
The character - The third new regular, Alex works alongside Curtis (Nathan Stewart-Jarrett) and though he may not be putting on the orange, he will play a major role in the group - the brooding bartender quickly catches Jess's eye, but his standoffish nature means he keeps her at arm's length...
The star - Stokoe has previously appeared in The Borgias and Black Mirror, but the best is yet to come for the actor - in addition to his Misfits stint, he has roles lined up in new BBC One drama The Village opposite John Simm and alongside Derek Jacobi in Last Tango in Halifax.
In addition to these fresh faces, expect the return of power-dealer Seth (Matthew McNulty) alongside old favorites Rudy and Curtis, plus the gang coming under siege from a killer rabbit (no, really) and the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse (again, really).
Oh, and following the death of yet another probation worker - the smart-mouthed Shaun (Craig Parkinson) - a new unfortunate will be tasked with looking after our ragtag heroes this time around - Greg, played by Shaun Dooley (The Woman in Black, Great Expectations).
With all that and more to come, we've got a feeling that there's still plenty of life left in Misfits yet - eight shocking, funny and utterly bonkers hour-long episodes await...

Revenge’s Madeleine Stowe Appears on The View, Turns Talk to Women’s Rights
about 11 hours ago by Rachel McRady
What happens when you pit Victoria Grayson against the five dominant women on The View? Obviously Vicki trumps. In the course of the five minute interview, actress Madeleine Stowe manages to touch on her powerful Revenge character, her political stance on the contraception ban in Virginia, and her husband’s love of cross dressing.

"We're happy, free, confused and lonely in the best way. It's miserable and magical," Taylor Swift sings in "22," a song on her brand-new album, Red. Those lyrics illuminate the rollercoaster ride that is this 22-year-old superstar's life, while also reflecting the myriad of emotions conveyed on the 16-song project.
But while the same can be said for Taylor's three previous studio albums -- all of which serve as the musical diary of her love life -- Red blurs genre lines more than she's ever dared before. The album's catchy first single, "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together," was her first-ever No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and teams the once-labeled 'country' star with pop heavyweights Max Martin and Shellback, known for their work with Katy Perry, Britney Spears and Avril Lavigne, among a long list of other pop phenomenons. Other tracks stray from the bubblegum into more rock territory, including the anthemic opening track "State of Grace," the daringly defiant "Treacherous" and whimsical ballad, "The Last Time" featuring Snow Patrol's Gary Lightbody.
"For me, genres are a way for people to easily categorize music. But it doesn't have to define you," Taylor tells The Boot. "It doesn't have to limit you. It doesn't have to make up this kind of imaginary rule book of you can only use these instruments, you can only use this kind of song structure and you can't go anywhere near loops or big drum sounds. I love the idea of getting to paint with lots of different colors, musically."
The album's title, Taylor explains, is her signature color when it comes to love. "Red is such an interesting color to correlate with emotion, because it's on both ends of the spectrum. On one end you have happiness, falling in love, infatuation with someone, passion, all that. On the other end, you've got obsession, jealousy, danger, fear, anger and frustration. It's an interesting color to correlate with all the really intense parts of a relationship, whether they're good or bad."
Real-life relationships are, of course, the project's top inspiration, making the true star of Red its mystery. Taylor's fans are obsessed with figuring out which famous ex-boyfriend inspired each song. But the singer stays adamantly tight-lipped ... for her listeners' own good. The Boot sat down with Taylor in a Nashville recording studio to talk about why she'll never reveal the true subjects behind her songs, her new theory on love and the one very important friend in her life whom she'll never, ever write a song about. Watch our exclusive video interview below.

The drama over Oprah Winfrey's dad's divorce continues.
The New York Post reported Wednesday that Vernon Winfrey acknowledged that he cheated on his wife Barbara. He also admitted that he may have chased her with a gun in his hand during a fight “five or six months ago."
Vernon Winfrey filed for divorce, citing "inappropriate marital conduct," last summer. Now, Barbara — Oprah's stepmother since 2000 — is seeking support from Vernon and the right to continue living in their $1.5 million mansion. In the court papers, Vernon reportedly claimed that he makes only $282 a month as a barber and his bank account is overdrawn.
However, she alleged that he receives $25,000 every three months from a trust fund set up by Oprah.
This is not the first report of drama between the two. Last July, Oprah bought her father's barbershop after the property went into foreclosure. Barbara Winfrey, who wanted to take out a loan, said she was furious at the intervention. Vernon said he disagreed, and filed for divorce shortly afterwards.

"The Heiress" Production Stills

For a fifth week, Maroon 5's 'One More Night' and PSY's 'Gangnam Style' place at Nos. 1 and 2. Rihanna and Ne-Yo, meanwhile, enter the top 10
No matter how many laps they make, PSY just can't gallop past Maroon 5 in their weekly race to the Billboard Hot 100's winner's circle.
For a fifth week, the Korean rapper's "Gangnam Style," fueled by its viral video in which he horses around (literally) with his now-famous dance moves, ranks at No. 2, below Maroon 5's "One More Night," which spends a sixth overall week at No. 1. The songs are the first to place at Nos. 1 and 2, respectively, for five consecutive weeks since Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" kept Maroon 5's previous single, "Payphone," featuring Wiz Khalifa, at No. 2 (where it peaked) for five frames in July/August.
The race for No. 1 was again fairly close, as approximately 2,000 points separate the songs, with each title declining by less than 1% in overall chart points. A similar gap separated the songs last week, while just 700 and 500 points made the difference two and three weeks ago, respectively.
"Night" widens its lead over "Style" in radio audience this week, as the former title logs a third week at No. 1 on the Radio Songs chart with a 3% increase to 135 million all-format audience impressions, according to Nielsen BDS. "Style" gains by 1% to 64 million, holding at No. 12 on the ranking.
Despite its runner-up rank on the Hot 100, "Style" returns to No. 1 on the Digital Songs chart and rules On-Demand Songs for a third week. The track rebounds 2-1 for a second week atop Digital Songs (after three weeks between Nos. 2 and 4), registering a 1% decline to 229,000 downloads sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan. ("Style" has sold 1.6 million to date.) It maintains its command on On-Demand Songs with 949,000 on-demand streams (down 3%), according to BDS.
"Night," meanwhile, drops 4-5 on Digital Songs (151,000, down 6%) and gains by less than 1% on On-Demand Songs (803,000), where it rises 3-2.
Below the race to the Hot 100's finish line, fun.'s "Some Nights" rebounds 4-3, returning to its peak to date in its 35th chart week. The title track from the group's second album (which crowns Adult Pop Songs this week) pushes 4-3 on Radio Songs (105 million, up less than 1%) and holds at No. 4 on On-Demand Songs and No. 6 on Digital Song
Ahead of her expected monster debut week, possibly with 1 million sold for "Red," next week on the Billboard 200, Taylor Swift lifts 5-4 on the Hot 100 with her former three-week No. 1 "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together." "State of Grace," the fifth and final track that the country/pop star has released in advance of "Red," meanwhile, scores the Hot 100's top debut at No. 13 ( her favorite number, of course). The first four such songs, including "Never," reached the top 10. "Grace" starts on Digital Songs at No. 2 (209,000).
Ke$ha's "Die Young" bounds into the Hot 100's top five (8-5) in its fourth week, charging 5-3 on Digital Songs (156,000, up 13%), 27-17 on On-Demand Songs (525,000, up 20%) and 16-14 on Radio Songs (63 million, up 13%). The first single from "Warrior," due Dec. 4, also becomes her seventh top 10 on the mainstream top 40 radio-based Pop Songs chart, where it climbs 12-10.
Justin Bieber's "As Long as You Love Me," featuring Big Sean, holds at its No. 6 peak on the Hot 100, while Alex Clare's "Too Close" likewise stays at its highest rank so far (No. 7).
Two new titles infuse the Hot 100's top 10. Rihanna notches her 23rd top 10, as "Diamonds" shines 11-8 in its fourth week with top Airplay and Streaming Gainer honors, and Ne-Yo bounds 12-9 with "Let Me Love You (Until You Learn to Love Yourself)."
"Diamonds" darts 15-10 on Radio Songs (66 million, up 18%) to become her 19th top 10 on the survey, breaking a tie with Lil Wayne for the second-best sum in the list's 22-year history; only Mariah Carey (23) has more. "Diamonds" concurrently climbs 9-7 on Digital Songs (118,000, up 10%) and 35-19 on On-Demand Songs (516,000, up 39%).
Ne-Yo's "Let," his 11th Hot 100 top 10 and first as a lead artist since "Miss Independent" in 2008, lifts 8-7 on Radio Songs (84 million, up 7%) and 44-39 on On-Demand Songs (351,000, up 4%) and gains by 4% to 70,000 downloads sold, despite a 17-18 retreat on Digital Songs.
P!nk's former No. 5 hit "Blow Me (One Last Kiss)" (9-10) rounds out the Hot 100's top 10.
Just outside the top tier, Bruno Mars' "Locked Out of Heaven" roars 33-15 with the Hot 100's top Digital Greatest Gainer nod. Following Mars' well-received double duties as host and musical guest on NBC's "Saturday Night Live" (Oct. 20), the lead single from his sophomore set, "Unorthodox Jukebox" (due Dec. 11), vaults 22-9 (106,000, up 99%) on Digital Songs.
Ex-Britney Spears confidante sobs over death threats
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - The former confidante of pop star Britney Spears broke down on the witness stand on Wednesday, saying his villainous portrayal in a book written by the singer's mother triggered a deluge of death threats that drove him into a suicidal depression.
"If I went anywhere public, people were assaulting me," Sam Lutfi told jurors at a civil trial in Los Angeles.
"People I knew were shunning me. There were numerous postings online on websites ... that were threats to kill me. People wishing that I was dead," Lutfi said, choking up and beginning to cry. "People wishing harm on my family."
Lutfi, who emerged as Spears' closest friend during her 2007 personal and career meltdown, was testifying for the second day in his lawsuit against the "Toxic" superstar and her parents.
He is suing Britney's mother, Lynne Spears, alleging she libeled him in her 2008 book, "Through the Storm," and made him a scapegoat for the singer's problems.
He is also suing Britney Spears for a chunk of her earnings, claiming she hired him as her manager soon after meeting him in 2007. And he is suing her father, Jamie Spears, for assault.
Lutfi said on Wednesday that Spears' father chased him, punched him and threatened to kill him in her Los Angeles home in early 2008.
"(Jamie Spears) was spitting and shouting, yelling at me, telling me that I had hurt his daughter and I had better leave or he was going to beat the hell out of me," Lutfi testified.
The trial, which began last week, has offered a glimpse into Spears' private life during her highly publicized crisis five years ago, including a divorce, a bitter child custody battle, a head-shaving incident and claims of amphetamine abuse.
Lutfi's tearful testimony provided a stark contrast to his cross-examination, during which Spears family attorneys read details from four restraining orders filed against him since 2004 in which the family, and other associates of Lutfi, accused him of threatening and terrorizing them and their relatives.
Joel Boxer, attorney for Britney Spears' estate, asked Lutfi if, during the time he claimed he was Britney's manager, he set up or presented any entertainment industry deals for the singer. Lutfi said no.
Lutfi has said he met Britney Spears at a nightclub in 2007 and that she quickly hired him as her manager and promised him 15 percent of the $800,000-plus she earned each month.
Attorneys representing Spears say Lutfi was preying on the singer during a vulnerable period in her life.
Jurors on Wednesday watched video footage showing a distraught and angry Spears being hounded by paparazzi in 2007. In one clip, the Louisiana native shouted at photographers in a fake British accent. In another, she was seen sitting on the sidewalk, cradling her dog and crying as paparazzi snapped photographs and taunted her.
Spears, now 30, whose personal and business affairs are still overseen by a conservator, has since made a comeback, releasing several hit albums and landing a judging spot on TV talent show "The X-Factor."
She is not attending the trial and is not expected to testify.

It’s Bilbo Baggins time down at Denny’s, which is rolling out a menu and marketing campaign based on the upcoming film “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.”
The 11 new menu items are enough to satisfy the diminutive creatures’ six-meal-a-day habit, with options such as Shire Sausage, Bilbo’s Berry Smoothies, Build Your Own Hobbit Slam and Radagast’s Red Velvet Pancake Puppies.
The film, based on the novel by “Lord of the Rings” author J.R.R. Tolkien, opens Dec. 14. The limited Denny’s offer will run from Nov. 6 through January, according to the chain.
A television ad featuring actual “Hobbit” buffs will air starting Nov. 12. Denny’s patrons will also be able to collect up to 12 “Hobbit” playing cards and find additional content through QR codes on placemats in the restaurants.
The movie will also be touted by the Air New Zealand airline. On-board safety videos will feature crew members dressed in Middle-earth garb.
Two planes will become airborne billboards for "An Unexpected Journey” and its follow-up film “There and Back Again” through a two-year deal with New Line Cinema and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer.
ETA: Here's the menu with pictures:
When Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel were married October 19 in Italy, the former 'NSync boy bander sang his bride down the aisle, crooning an original song that he wrote for the occasion, which left nary a dry eye in the house. However, when it came time for the couple's first dance, they relied on a classic tune — "A Song for You" by Donny Hathaway.
"A Song for You" is actually one of the most-covered songs in modern music history. Written and recorded by music legend Leon Russell, it appeared on his eponymous album in 1970. The love song seems on target for the celebrity couple as it tells the story of a famous singer who hopes to live up to the expectations of his lady love. Noting that they had been through some tough times ("I've treated you unkindly") — making us think of Timberlake and Biel's brief split — he says there is no one more important than she is, she's made him a better man, and he'll love her "for my life."
Russell — a Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee who has played with Elton John, Bob Dylan, George Harrison, and Eric Clapton, among others — has said that when he wrote the song, he was trying to create something that "anybody can sing" because "that's where the money was." Well, he was right on target. "A Song For You" has been recorded more than 100 times. In addition to Hathaway, it's been covered by a diverse range of singers, including Whitney Houston, Willie Nelson, Amy Winehouse, Cher, and Herbie Hancock featuring Christina Aguilera.
Hathaway's inspired cover of "A Song for You" appeared on his second album, which was released in 1971. And although the singer died in 1979, he's influenced many of today's top talents — including Timberlake. When JT released FutureSex/LoveSounds, he said that the track "(Another Song) All Over Again" was his "homage to Donny Hathaway." Timberlake went so far as to declare Hathaway "the best singer of all time." In this week's issue of People, in which the newlyweds share their wedding album, Timberlake gushed about the tune, saying, that it "happens to be one of my favorite songs of all time, and Jess' as well."
When celebrity couples pick their first song, anything goes. As far as recent newlyweds, when Drew Barrymore married Will Kopleman in June, they danced to "No One's Gonna Love You" by Band of Horses. Later that month, Alec Baldwin and Hilaria Thomas hit the dance floor when Luis Miguel's "Contigo" came on. But not everybody is hung up on the old-fashioned wedding tradition. When Matthew McConaughey married Camila Alves in June, they skipped their first song, instead they just boogied to a variety of American pop and Brazilian rock hits performed by a live band.
Nancy Grace stopped by The Wendy Williams Show to talk about her time on Dancing With The Stars, her honesty on her news show, being a crime victim, and even addresses all the haters. She still denies her wardrobe malfunction on DWTS and even gets a sexy birthday surprise from Wendy Williams!
Neil Young spent an hour on Twitter this afternoon (Oct. 24) to answer some fan questions ranging from possibly working with Axl Rose, Jack White and Dave Grohl, to taking another verbal swing at Bono.
It was a dizzy, delirious time in the twitverse, so we've tried to bring some order to the chaos that was #askneil becoming a top trending topic around the world.
Here, then, are some of the things we learned from the Neil Young Twitter Q&A:
1) One fan mentioned how the first four albums of his career had been remastered and reissued and if there were plans for additional reissues.
"I've remastered the whole catalog #askneil," Young said, meaning there will be plenty of remastered material to come from Young in addition to his new studio releases.
2) Young's first answer was to a fellow Canadian musician, Limblifter member Ryan Dahle. Dahle asked Young if it was an "old Firebird pickup in your Les Paul?"
"Yes," Young replied.
3) When asked if Young would record with Guns n' Roses singer Axl Rose in the future, he said "Axl and I are doing a world tour together #askneil".
Neil might have been trolling a bit with that one, although Gn'R did perform at the Bridge School benefit show last weekend with Young and the band tweeted "tell him thanks for the amazing weekend #askneil #SupportBridgeSchool."
4) A Jack White collaboration? "I like Jack White #askneil" Young said.
5) A Dave Grohl collaboration? "Yes, I think we will #askneil" he tweeted.
6) Yes, he likes Radiohead.
7) From the new generation of bands, who would he "rate" as good? Foster the People.
8) Although there were few political questions in light of the upcoming U.S. Presidential election, Young was asked how politics changed his music through the years. "Ask me in two weeks," Young replied.
Young also managed to get another barb in at U2 singer Bono, somebody who he slammed indirectly in his autobiography Waging Heavy Peace for the "long-winded oratory" Bono gave when introducing Frank Sinatra when Sinatra accepted a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Grammys.
A fan named with the username "akemi99" tweeted regarding Young mentioning Foster the People: "btw, bono said he likes them too, it is surprising two super stars like them.." the fan said.
"who is Bono? #askneil" Young replied.
There were many, many unanswered questions during the chat and some notable names got ignored. Justin Bieber's guitarist Dan Kanter, the man responsible for getting the Biebs into Phish, tweeted the following question: "Hey @neilyoung, do you like fellow Canadian @justinbieber's acoustic renditions? #askneil." Meanwhile, rapper D-Sisive asked "How much does the average freight train weigh?"
For the record, none of the questions asked by Spinner editors, which included queries about the favorite wild game he likes to eat, who his favorite musicians under the age of 30 are, what he thought of Fisker electric cars catching fire, or any of the ones blasted through our official twitter account (follow us @spinner) got answered.
Young is currently on a North American tour that sees him playing in Tuscaloosa, Alabama tomorrow night (Oct. 25) before heading to Canada for a string of dates in November.
Have any favorite Neil Young songs, ONTD? What do you think about the possible Jack White and Dave Grohl collabs? I, for one, could not be more pysched.
Here is a video that was made for Laura Marling's (Jack White produced) rendition of Neil's song "Needle and the Damage Done."
