Nathan Fillion is right at home at Comic-Con

Among TV stars, no one (with the possible exception of "Dexter's" Michael C. Hall) has a more devoted following at San Diego Comic-Con each year than Nathan Fillion.

His popularity has grown by leaps and bounds among fanboys and fangirls ever since the cult series "Firefly," and within the past year, he's broken into the mainstream with the ABC detective show, "Castle."

"Castle" was not the only cop show at Comic-Con (see "Hawaii Five-O"), but if it didn't star Fillion, it probably wouldn't be there.

Excelsior! Stan Lee conquers Comic-Con, again

Stan Lee has always been a draw at San Diego Comic-Con, even before Hollywood came calling.

This year, Lee was busier than ever at the age of 87, promoting his new partnership with BOOM! Studios, signing autographs on the convention floor and speaking on a panel following the world premiere of the documentary, "With Great Power: The Stan Lee Story."

When Lee was told that there would be a documentary made about him, he said, "I thought they were kidding. When they finally convinced me, I thought, 'Well, it will be a little 12 minute thing.' It's incredible, they've been filming it for over two years."

Behind the scenes on 'Showbiz Tonight': Mel Gibson vs. James Bond?

The staff of "Showbiz Tonight" surely did not see this one coming: Mel Gibson vs. James Bond?!

RadarOnline.com has released another angry voice recording, allegedly of Mel Gibson jealously berating his ex-girlfriend Oksana Girgorieva about her last lover, former "James Bond" star Timothy Dalton.  She and Dalton had a son together, Alexander, who is now 12.

It seems to be a big point of contention because, on the newest tape, a man who sounds like Gibson screams about Dalton, saying, “Did you get my last message about me being a bad father, and Tim being a great dad now?” Listen to the full tape on "Showbiz Tonight!"

Things are heating up on 'True Blood'

Editor’s Note: This post contains spoilers for the Sunday, July 25 episode of HBO’s “True Blood.”

Remember the days of season three, when we lay awake at night wondering if anything was ever going to happen on our beloved hot mess of a show? Well, Jackson was definitely where the action was last night.

After Bill and Sookie were ambushed at Alcide’s, they were brought back to Russell’s place, where Lorena and Eric appeared from various nooks and crannies in the house.

Russell was displeased that Bill sought out Sookie to tell her to flee the city, but before he could go into further detail, Bill staked one of the vampire guards! And then he tried to stake Russell! Bill failed, of course, and Russell banished him to the old slave quarters on the property and instructed Lorena to kill him.

'Mad Men': Who is Don Draper?

Editor’s Note: This post contains spoilers for the Sunday, July 25 episode of AMC’s "Mad Men."

The ad men of Madison Avenue are back! The fourth season picked up during Thanksgiving week, 1964, and the firm of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce is new and improved. They’ve got new offices and new secretaries, but (thankfully) still the same old smoldering Don Draper.

As the face of SCDP, Don sat down for an interview with Ad Age, and was as vague and mysterious as ever. Unsurprisingly, the resulting profile painted him as, well, vague and mysterious.

Since SCDP is still drumming up new clients, Roger, Pete and Don met with representatives from swimwear manufacturer Jantzen. The company is looking to market a two-piece bathing suit, not to be confused with a bikini, as they’re all about modesty and maintaining their family-friendly reputation. Don, on the other hand, thinks they're uptight.
