Lucy Liu and Jonny Lee Miller at Comic-Con!
Comic-Con 2012: 'Elementary' Cast, Creators Defend Female Watson
Sherlock Holmes has crossed the pond and arrived in New York, with CBS' fresh take on the famed detective, Elementary, meeting the make-or-break audiences of Comic-Con.
Starring Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu, the modern-day telling features Holmes relocating to the U.S., where he assists the NYPD in solving difficult cases. Liu takes on the role of Dr. Joan Watson -- that's right, Holmes' right-hand man is a lovely lady -- assigned to oversee Sherlock's newfound sobriety.
Following the premiere screening of the series, one of three first-year shows to panel inside the sprawling Ballroom 20, the cast and creators -- including Rob Doherty (Medium), Sarah Timberman and Carl Beverly (Justified) -- addressed the changes in the project as well as if other famed characters from the Arthur Conan Doyle books.
"When this opportunity arose, I did a lot of research -- psychological assessments of original characters by actual doctors -- and Holmes struggled a bit with women, He struggled with people in general, but there are moments when he doesn’t quite get the fairer sex," creator Doherty said. "It made me laugh: the idea of what would be more trying than Sherlock Holmes living with a Watson who's also a woman. It really shouldn't make a difference; it's a challenge of the series to not turn it into a will-they-or-won't-they. It's not about that, it's about honoring the source material and … the bond." [I love love love this reasoning for turning Watson into a woman! I think it's pretty clear the show isn't going to be pushing a romance angle, so all the Johnlock shipping concern trolls can officially calm their tits.]
Liu noted that Watson is using her job as a sober companion to distract herself from dealing with her own emotional issues [I think this is a really interesting take on the Watson character and I can't wait to see it play out.] and noted that there's a strong link between Watson and Holmes. "There's something special there, and there's potential. I'm not saying it's romanitic, but it gives it a different shift, a little bit of a tingle," she said to applause.
Later, asked about the controversy circulating online about a female -- and Asian-American -- Holmes, Liu and Doherty defended the casting decision and noted they simply went with the best actor for the job. [This is the question that ONTD's own watermeloncholy asked!]
As for whether other famed characters of the Sherlock Holmes mythos would appear, Doherty noted that he'd like to see -- including Sherlock's brother, Mycroft, and archnemesis Professor Moriarty. "It's something we will be looking at as we move through this first season," Doherty said. "It's somebody I'm really looking forward to writing and having our take on [Moriarty]."
Meanwhile, the pilot makes several references to Holmes' unseen father, with the series creator noting that the character will "cast a shadow over a lot of what we do in the early goings."
"I love the idea of him as a mysterious shadowy figure we'll get to build and make a part of the series," Doherty said.
Fans were clearly stoked about the series, screaming their approval following the screening as well as after the panel. Looks like the case of whether Comic-Con fans would approve of the new Holmes is solved.
Elementary premieres at 10 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 27, on CBS.
'Elementary' Comic-Con panel: One Sherlock too many?
How many Sherlock Holmes can simultaneously peacefully coexist in pop culture?
That was the big question hanging over CBS’ Elementary panel at Comic-Con Thursday, with the show seeking to be the third major pop culture vehicle starring the famous detective vying for audiences attention in recent years.
There is, of course, Robert Downey Jr.’s bombastic big-screen steam-punk version, in which Holmes seems more keen on using his fists than his wits. And, more impressively, Benedict Cumberbatch’s marvelous take on the BBC’s Sherlock — a crime drama so brilliant it makes U.S. cops shows look like they’ve been asleep for the past decade. [I think the writer of this article and I might have watched a different Sherlock, but ok.]
Judging from the audience enthusiastic response to the Elementary pilot screened in Ballroom 20 this afternoon, there’s room enough for one more — and we already guessed that, right? The crime drama is the most popular hour-long scripted format on TV. There’s always room for one more, especially a character as iconic as Holmes.
“The fact that there have been so many interpretations over the years actually takes the pressure off,” star Jonny Lee Miller told the audience. “You can take what you want, what you feel hasn’t been seen before.”
Miller is friends with Cumberbatch and says the actor was “very supportive” of him taking the role. “We wanted to be sure it’s very different,” Miller said. “I went back to the books, that’s where I got most of my information.”
The biggest change, of course, was “Starbucking” Watson, who will be played by Lucy Liu. Executive producer Robert Doherty says the change was inspired by Holmes’ amusing discomfort around women in the books. One must also wonder if other factors were at play too — like not making the CBS version too similar to Sherlock (whose production company accused CBS of knocking off their show anyway), and sticking with the tried-and-true CBS format of pairing male and female cop partners. At any rate, one shouldn’t expect much romance between the two.
“It’s a challenge to not turn into a ‘will they or won’t they,’” Doherty said. “The relationship should still function the same way [as in the books].”
“It gives it a different shift,” added Liu about the characters’ relationship. “A little bit of a tingle.”
Judging by producers’ hints, you can expect Holmes’ arch-rival Moriarty to show up, possibly in the first season. But Holmes’ brother Mycroft won’t be introduced anytime soon. The show will instead focus on fleshing out the relationship between Holmes and his father. Elementary premieres Sept. 27 on CBS.

I am really really happy that the reaction to the pilot has been so positive. I feel like all my pre-emptive stanning has not been in vain! And all the people calling Lucy Liu homophobic can kindly sit the fuck down. It's pretty obvious from her answers here that when she said in the preview that changing Watson into a woman created a different dynamic and chemistry than the usual male Watson and male Holmes, she wasn't implying a romantic tension and therefore she wasn't saying that there couldn't be romantic tension between two men.

Louis Tomlinson Interview for 'Seventeen' magazine
Seventeen: What’s “One Thing” you love about each of your band-mates?
Louis Tomlinson: Niall is so carefree. When he wakes up in the morning, he’s quite miserable, but otherwise he just loves life. Liam is very sensible. If I’m going to be stupid and immature, a lot of the time it’s with Liam – we’ve really clicked. Zayn’s good to just sit down and chat to about pretty much anything. At the end of the night, we just sit around and talk about our life before One Direction, or anything at all really. Harry and I have a lot in common and we’ve been really good friends from day one. I sit down and talk to him a lot.
17: What’s the most romantic thing you’ve ever done for a girl?
LT: I can’t really cook, but the first dish I ever made was for my girlfriend, Eleanor. I made chicken breast wrapped in ham, homemade mashed potatoes, and gravy.
17: How did you and Eleanor meet?
LT: Eleanor was a friend of Harry’s. He worked with her friend at a local bakery. One day, Harry met up with his friend, Eleanor came, and we met.
17: When it comes to kissing, how do you like to be kissed?
LT: I like kisses that aren’t too fast or rushed – that’s what makes a good kiss.
17: Since you have a girlfriend, are you a good wingman for the other guys?
LT: I will confess I am a great wingman. Since I have a girlfriend, I’ll start the night with her, but then I’ll help out the guys by making them sound like the most incredible guys in the world.
17: Who is the pickiest when it comes to dating?
LT: We all go for different types of girls – I wouldn’t say one person is necessarily pickier than the others.
17: You’re constantly on the road touring! What do you do on your tour bus to pass the time?
LT: We play cards, Playstation, chat with each other, and watch movies. I just watched Man On A Ledge with Eleanor. I thought it was a great film.
17: What’s your favorite song to perform?
LT: Probably “Up All Night” because it has a certain joy. It’s not really staged – we just walk slowly around the stage. The crowd responds to that song really well.

As the "Vampire Diaries" gets closer to their season four premiere date, we're getting more scoop on what's to come for the Mystic Falls gang! We previously reported that three new characters will be making their way into town, and now we can officially say that one of them has been cast!
Making his way into Mystic Falls come October will be Connor, a "highly trained killing machine." According to Entertainment Weekly, the new trouble maker in town will be played by "Chicago Code" and "In Plain Sight" actor Todd Williams.
Williams character will have a recurring role in the fourth season, and "Vampire Diaries" fans will get their first glimpse of him in the second episode.
Connor will be replacing Alaric, our favorite sometimes history teacher/ vampire hunter turned vampire turned fully dead. While Alaric was generally a good guy before becoming an evil vampire out to destroy all vampires, make no mistake about Connor - he is a serious, intimidating and powerful new player in Mystic Falls.
While it's easy to assume that Connor will be going after our favorite vampires in town (Damon, Stefan, Caroline, Tyler and now Elena), it's possible that he might have a change of heart after meeting the young undead crew. If Connor is as serious about vampire hunting as his character description seems, this could definitely pose a threat for the whole vampire race. We have a feeling that Klaus, Elijah and Damon won't let one little vampire hunter get in the way of their eternal lifestyle.
ZOMG I need some news from the Community panel. Will keep you posted.
Karen Elson Told She 'Needs To Get Raped' After Condemning Daniel Tosh Rape Joke
In case you've been sunning yourself on an Internet-free tropical isle for the past couple weeks, comedian Daniel Tosh has caused a heat wave of controversy after telling a heckler she should get raped by five guys ("Wouldn't it be funny?") at one of his shows.
British supermodel and musician Karen Elson joined a host of others in condemning Tosh's joke, taking to her Twitter to say, "Daniel Tosh didn't get the memo that [rape] never was and never will be funny." (She appears to have deleted the tweet since.)
The 33-year-old model and mother of two soon received a flood of responses, most positive, but some that were downright disturbing. One Twitter user even replied: "@KarenElson_ Needs to be raped, she might lighten up after getting some for once."
YIKES. Elson obviously recoiled, tweeting later, "People's comments to my Daniel Tosh tweet are shocking. Guess we're in the dark ages" and "Until you have walked in a woman's shoes and have to walk in a world were being sexually harassed is common you may understand my point." She then said she was "over Twitter," but thankfully, online encouragers convinced her to come back, as she wrote, "Thanks for all the support today! I got sucked into a vortex but thankfully I got out. Enough said."
Stand strong, Karen! At least you have people like Mickey Boardman watching your back.
screencaps of the actual tweets are at the source but i wouldn't recommend looking

Taylor Swift shows off a slightly darker hair color in her new campaign for CoverGirl!
The 22-year-old musician rocked four new makeup looks for the new campaign: Clean, Rocker, Glam and Country.
“I think in life we have a bunch of different versions of ourselves and that goes with our personality and how we act around a friend, that’s how we act in a job interview…it’s all very different how we act,” Taylor dished in the behind-the-scenes video. “I think it’s all equally different the way we choose to dress, the way we choose our makeup. The cool thing about makeup is that it can be so different on any given day.”
Don't let her fool you. Well know what darker hair means! It's about damn time she admits she IS evil Taylor. There is no good Taylor.
Khia Slams Frank Ocean for "Fooling Women" Over Sexuality
One-hit wonder rapper Khia appears to have fired not-so-subtle shots at Odd Future crooner Frank Ocean after he set the record straight on his sexuality.
Last week, Frank bravely penned a powerful letter in which he revealed he fell in love with a man at the age of 19, putting to rest the rumours of his sexuality. Along with the rest of the music world, Khia has added her two cents in regards to the revelation but seems to have subliminally dissed the singer.
"Hats Off To Frank Ocean At Least He Finally Told The Truth Now All The Women He Fooled Can Finally Know The Truth!!" Khia wrote on Twitter.
"I Wrote A Book About It!! Be Sure To Get It Khia’s New Book Ignoring The Signs!!! LAWD HAVE MERCEY ON THEIR SOULS!!"
Was Khia wrong to say Frank "fooled" women he has been involved with?
gurrrrrrrl, you cause that tacky drama in order to promote dat new album, 'MotorMouf aka Khia Shamone', on iTunes now.
Kelly Osbourne got Kris Humphries kicked out of a Hollywood hot spot in support of her friend Kim Kardashian. No-nonsense Osbourne, the creative director of Beacher’s Madhouse, was at the Sunset Boulevard club Wednesday night when Kardashian’s ex showed up.
Rocker Ozzy’s daughter immediately had him kicked out, says a spy. “Kris was so embarrassed and pissed,” the insider says. “Kim is a regular at the club, and Kelly wanted to stay loyal to her.” The source added, “It was towards the end of the night — Kelly was furious he was in there. You could see the disgust in her face. She sent security over, and they kicked him out. He was mortified.” Humphries was in LA for the ESPYs, and was spotted partying at a bash hosted by Lindsey Vonn, as well as at Beacher’s club, which is frequented by Zac Efron and Miley Cyrus. Humphries is currently embroiled in a divorce case against his reality-star wife, and has been dealing with his ex Myla Sinanaj, who last week stoked rumors she was pregnant before denying it this week.
who knew kris would turn out to be trashier than Kimmie
Madonna is facing legal action after allegedly sampling another track in her hit song 'Vogue'.
Label bosses and VMG Salsoul have accused the star of using horns and strings from Salsoul Orchestra's 1975 hit 'Chicago Bus Stop (Ooh, I Love It)', TMZ reports.
The lawsuit claims that Madonna never paid to use the sample in the song, from which she has made huge profits since its release in 1990.
The alleged sampling was only recently discovered by VMG Salsoul using new technology designed to isolate and identify specific sounds.
VMG Salsoul, who are claiming copyright infringement, are demanding unspecified damages.
Madonna is currently on her world tour, which comes to London's Hyde Park on July 17.
Compare The Salsoul's 'Chicago Bus Stop' and Madonna's 'Vogue' below:
A more detailed report:
A Delaware company has hit Madonna and her label WB Records with a lawsuit claiming the pop star stole portions of one of their songs for her hit 1990 hit "Vogue," reports E!.
Pointing to a song called "Love Break," released around 1977, VMG claims, "The portions of 'Love Break,' which have been copied into 'Vogue' and all its various 'mixes,' 'remixes,' videos, YouTube versions, etc., are numerous but intentionally hidden. The horn and strings in 'Vogue' are intentionally sampled from 'Love Break' throughout."
The company also says music producer Richard "Shep" Pettibone facilitated the process by altering the samples after he was originally hired by VMG to remix "Love Break," later working on "Vogue."
"The unauthorized sampling was deliberately hidden by [Madonna] within 'Vogue' so as to avoid detection. It was only when VMG specifically looked for the sample, with the technology available to it in 2011, that the sampling could be confirmed," VMG said.
VMG claims they served WB Records with a copyright infringement notice in July 2011 and February 2012 and are seeking damages on top of "[Madonna's] profits that are attributable to the copyrighted material." Representatives for Madonna have yet to comment.
thoughts on last night's episode?
Once again, the 6-year-old daughter of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes made her way to the Chelsea Piers recreational center Thursday, where she donned a blue leotard for a gymnastics lesson.
It was another summer outing for the young Cruise and Holmes, who dropped her daughter off at the Piers, not far from their new N.Y.C. apartment.
Amid the divorce drama that began two weeks ago – and peaked when the actress was granted primary custody, according to sources, Monday – the mother-daughter duo, often joined by Holme's mother Kathleen, have enjoyed the city, from the art museum to the zoo (and a little ice cream in between).
Tom Cruise Didn't Pay Katie Lump Sum in Divorce
Tom Cruise did not pay Katie Holmes a lump sum in his divorce settlement, but he will pay handsomely in the child support department ... sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ.
Our well-connected sources tell us ... reports that Katie scored $50 million are "ridiculous." We're told she did not get a lump sum of money at all. As we previously reported, Katie signed a prenup which gave her goose eggs by ending the marriage. And, sources connected with Katie have been telling us from day 1 that she was not after his money. As one source put it, "She has her own money."
We do know, however, that Tom is paying "a lot of money" in the form of child support. Tom will be making regular payments for 12 years. Our sources say all tolled, Tom will be paying "more than $10 million" in child support, though no one would be more specific.

Show Creator Robert Doherty on Genderbending Watson: video
“When this opportunity arose, I did a lot of research — psychological assessments of original characters by actual doctors — and Holmes struggled a bit with women. He struggled with people in general, but there are moments when he doesn’t quite get the fairer sex. It made me laugh: the idea of what would be more trying than Sherlock Holmes living with a Watson who’s also a woman.

You can watch the panel here (sorry. can't embed and it's US-restricted. smh.)
Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4
For tldr crowd:
Jonny: Sherlock struggles with addiction. The Watson relationship is going to help that hopefully.
Lucy: Watson is flawed. She is dealing w/ Sherlock's issues to mask her own, but he sees right through that.
Lucy on the controversy on her casting: You have to be a pioneer. If I didn't try anything different I'd still be doing a Calgon ad.
Robert Doherty: Sherlock's father will cast a shadow - we will eventually get to build & make him part of the series.
Jonny: You can expect an updated version of a classic relationship. Not romantically.Just a great relationship period.
Robert Doherty: it would be a great shame to do a Sherlock project and not have Moriarty appear at some point in time.
The pilot was screened and the general reaction from the viewers is:
PS: BILL HECK JOINS ELEMENTARY CAST
Bill Heck has booked a recurring role on CBS’ new Sherlock Holmes reboot Elementary. He plays Ty, a handsome old friend of Joan’s (Lucy Liu) and a rising star in the New York District Attorney’s office.
Look at that crowd! :'D
1, 2, 3, 3, 5
Premiere date of Elementary: September 27th. Only CBS!
Michael Clarke Duncan is in the intensive care unit at an L.A. hospital after going into cardiac arrest this morning ... and might have died if not for the swift action of his girlfriend Omarosa Stallworth.
TMZ has learned ... Omarosa discovered the "Green Mile" actor in a state of cardiac arrest just before 2:00 AM.
We're told Omarosa performed CPR and was able to resuscitate the 54-year-old.
MCD was transported to a nearby hospital where he was immediately admitted to the ICU.
Sources tell us ... Duncan's heart rate is now stable and Omarosa is by his side. Doctors are performing tests to figure out why the actor's heart stopped in the first place.
Story developing ...
damn werk, Omarosa! Hope he's ok, I will forever love him for Green Mile and for being awesome in general. And also, wtf they're dating?!
"Dexter's" panel at Comic-Con was as lively (sorry) as usual, and stars Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter shared some major scoop about Season 7 -- with a little help from their new guest star Yvonne Strahovski ("Chuck").
"New" Big Bad: Another Trinity killer is on the loose! Not exactly. In Season 7, Dexter is stalking a killer who "ritually murders on New Year's Eve." Whatever happened to resolutions like joining the gym?
A Little Help From a Friend: Strahovski is guesting as Hannah McKay, "a woman of mystery with a dark past," explained the beautiful Aussie actress explained. "She meets Dexter and helps him with an investigation in an old murder mystery" -- presumably the NYE killer. "She's not working with the police," Strahovski clarified to Zap2it at a Showtime party following the panel. "This is why the role was so enticing to me. The last five years I've played a CIA agent on 'Chuck -- it's the complete opposite."
No Seconds Wasted: Season 7 picks up immediately from last year's shocking finale: Deb discovering her brother murdering Travis (Colin Hanks). Dexter tries to justify it as an act of self-defense, but considering Travis is "wrapped in plastic on an altar," he has some splaining to do to his incredulous sister.
Incest Is Best: [Why!!!!!!] Sorry, it doesn't look like "Dexter" producers have any plans to course-correct the show's new controversial storyline: Deb realizing she has romantic feelings for Dexter. "There was certainly a fascination that I thought Deb had with Dexter, so it didn't feel like it was so bizarre to play that last season," Carpenter reasoned, before adding, "I think him stabbing somebody trumps those thoughts." [I hope so].
Daddy Dearest: Dexter's son, Harrison, is still "in the picture" this season, Hall confirmed. (And "very cute," Carpenter piped in.) Being a serial killer parent to a growing boy "becomes a dicier proposition every day," said Hall. "As someone who is also Harrison's guardian, Deb now has a sense of what she's dealing with her brother that changes things as well. He has someone encouraging him to face what he is trying to pull off as a parent.
"Dexter's powers of denial are pretty strong, but he would be hard pressed to really argue that being a serial killer is an ideal hobby for a parent," Hall concluded drily.
"Dexter" returns Sunday, Sept. 30 on Showtime.

OFFICIAL: Jennifer Lopez Leaving American Idol
Jennifer Lopez is leaving "American Idol," the 42-year-old pop star confirmed on "Idol" host Ryan Seacrest's radio show this morning.
Lopez's departure follows yesterday's announcement that Steven Tyler will not be returning to judge the 12th season of Fox's reality show. Musicians from Mariah Carey to Adam Lambert have been rumored as possible replacements for the two judges, both of whom have been with the show for two seasons, since 2010.
"When I signed on to 'Idol' I signed on to one year," Lopez said, "and I wound up doing two years because I just fell so in love with the show and everybody there. I felt like for six months it's fine, but then to go back and do it again I was like 'Oh God!' … You know, I have the movies, my music and my this and my that," said Lopez -- whose voice started to crack by the end of the interview. "And it all kind of worked together for a while but it just gets more complicated. You know, and as the kids get bigger, it just started feeling like it was a lot, and something had to give. Something has to give. And that's where I am right now."
She continued, "I honestly feel that the time has come that I have to get back to doing the other things that I do that I've put kind of on hold because I love 'Idol' so much."
Seacrest told Lopez, "You're breaking up with me… I wanna say that I'm sad as the host of the show. Sad as your friend." Friday morning, he tweeted, "Just confirmed w/ @JLo she's made up her mind...will leave idol. :( gonna miss her," on Friday morning, along with a link to the full audio of his interview with Lopez.
