Harold Perrineau Redefines ‘Angel’ in NBC’s ‘Constantine’

*Harold Perrineau, last seen reprising his role as Julian in “The Best Man Holiday,” returns to television on Friday with the premiere of NBC’s “Constantine.”

Based on the DC Comic book “Hellblazer,” the series follows John Constantine (Matt Ryan), a dry-witted, dark arts expert looking for redemption as a demon hunter bent on saving the world from supernatural threats.

He was played on the big screen in 2005 by Keanu Reeves, which only made this project an easier sell for executive producer David S. Goyer (Christopher Nolan’s “Batman” trilogy, “Man of Steel,” “Blade: Trinity”).

“Look, the fact that the film did well certainly didn’t hurt, but first and foremost, it’s just John Constantine is one of the great characters of modern literature,” Goyer told the TCA in July, explaining his reasons for bring the character to television.

“The best of the best in the comic book world have written him and drawn him. He’s a character that just sort of everyone wants their crack at him. So for me, having worked on Batman and Superman, it was just that was the guy. I would have wanted to do a TV show about him even if they hadn’t done a film, but the film certainly doesn’t hurt.”

Harold Perrineau stars as Manny, Constantine’s supposed guardian angel. But based on the pilot episode, Manny’s intentions in helping John are a bit unclear. In fact, at times it seems he may not be an angel at all.

Below, Perrineau gives us his take on Manny, with Goyer chiming in. (He also compares Manny to other famous angels like Clarence Odbody in “It’s a Wonderful Life,” the Archangel Michael and the Biblical angel Gabriel.

“Constantine” premieres Friday, Oct. 24 at 10 p.m. on NBC.

Halle Berry to Relaunch French Lingerie Line Scandale

scandale paris halle berry

*Halle Berry is looking to promote femininity, sexiness and self-empowerment…through a line of undergarments.

According to Fox411, the Oscar-winning actress is reviving Scandale, a lingerie label born in France in 1932.

“We’ve taken this brand and revamped it,” Berry said in an interview Thursday. “But we’ve kept all the qualities of the Parisian sort of style intact.”

The collection of 10 bras and panties will be sold by Target, and while “rich with history and heritage,” will boast “a very good price,” said Berry, who, beneath her lacy dress displayed a black Illusion demi bra (less than $20).

Berry is an owner of the Scandale Paris line, launching here in 2015, and said she plays a hands-on role in design, declaring, “I think I have a pulse on what American women want.”

She agreed that, for guys, the choice of undergarments is largely a question of boxers or briefs. “But most women know that what you put under your clothes is the first step in making yourself feel good about yourself.”

Women buy lingerie mainly for themselves, she went on, quickly adding, “When they find something they feel good in, and that makes them feel sexy and feminine and empowered, their partners also reap the benefits.”

Berry also discussed her television debut over the summer in CBS’ sci-fi series “Extant.” For this film veteran, series TV, with its faster-than-film pace and longer-than-film hours, was “a rude awakening,” she confessed. But now she’s braced to resume production for next season in February.

Despite the excitement her entry into series TV ignited, reviews for “Extant” were mixed and ratings less than spectacular.

“That was disappointing, you might say,” she admitted, “but at least we got picked up. I think we learned a lot from the first season.”

She noted that many series take time to break through into long-running hits.

“I hope that will be our case,” she said.

Tension in ‘Tamar & Vince’ Season 3 Sneak Peek (Watch)

*Ahead of tonight’s season premiere of “Tamar & Vince,” WeTV released a clip that shows Vincent Herbert not happy with one of his wife’s sultry performances.

In the clip, Braxton, while preparing for the “biggest show of her life thus far,” offers to show Vince a snippet of the choreography, but quickly shows her reluctancy.

“I don’t know if I’m ready for all of this sexual activity in front of my husband. It’s a lot.”

While Tamar reveals that she has worked with the guy since the beginning of her solo performing career, she is a little hesitant as to “how the audience would perceive” their interaction.

“It could be uncomfortable because they know I’m married. But at the end of the day she’s an actress.”

In the end, Herbert confesses he was not happy.

“Of course I don’t like it. But it’s her being an artist. It’s not cool. Nobody wants to see their wife up there with some guy and all that stuff. But if she has respect for me wouldn’t put it in the show like that.”

Watch below. The full episode airs tonight at 10/9c on WeTV.

*Serena Williams says she has received a written apology from Russian tennis head Shamil Tarpischev for offensive comments in which he called her and sister Venus the “Williams brothers.”

“He has reached out to apologize to both myself and my sister,” Williams said at the WTA Finals on Thursday, adding, “It was written. No, I did not speak to him.”

Tarpischev was fined $25,000 and suspended from tour involvement for a year for his comments on a Russian TV show, in which he also said the sisters were “scary” to look at.

Tarpischev said there was no malicious intent, and the quotes were taken out of context.

The WTA said in a statement that “his derogatory remarks deserve to be condemned.”

*Connor Cruise recently returned to the states after a trip through the Saharan Desert in Africa, where “he was soul searching,” a friend of Cruise’s tells RadarOnline.com.

The trip followed reports that the 19-year-old’s recent decision to leave The Church of Scientology left a rift between him and his famous parents, Tom, 52, and Nicole Kidman, 47. The friend says that’s not the case.

“His father is not disowning him,” the insider says. “His parents just want him to be happy and do not care about his religious practices, so long as he is always connected to some form of God and spirituality, which he is.”
