Welcome to Brothers and Sisters Web, your resource for the show Brothers & Sisters. Running on ABC from 2006-2011, this is the place for most up to date information, spoilers, screencaps as well as photos, news and screencaptures of the cast and their other projects, as well as a celebration of all things Walker.
I’m told that Marvel Studios has found its female lead for the sequel Captain America: The Winter Soldier. They are in talks with Emily VanCamp, who makes the leap to the big screen after starring in such series as ABC’s Revenge, the WB’s Everwood and Brothers And Sisters. She joins Chris Evans in a sequel that doesn’t have a firm start date, but will be released April 4, 2014. The film is directed by Joe and Anthony Russo. If you recall, the first film started period and morphed into the present. I’ve heard talk that Scarlett Johansson will bring her Black Widow character to the mix. She is repped by UTA and Thruline.
The CW on Monday afternoon added two more hour-longs to its pilot orders for the season.
The Tomorrow People, adapted from the 1970s UK series, follows several young people from around the world who represent the next stage in human evolution, possessing special powers, including the ability to teleport and communicate with each other telepathically. Together they work to score about a 3.5 demo rating defeat the forces of evil.
Greg Berlanti (Arrow) and Julie Plec (The Vampire Diaries) will executive-producer along with writer Phil Klemmer
“The Americans,” a new espionage series set to begin on Wednesday on FX, stars Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys as Soviet sleeper agents posing as an average married couple in the Washington suburbs in the early 1980s. (You can read more about the series here.) The show, a spy thriller/domestic drama, requires the actors to balance violent fight scenes and other action set pieces with the more delicate work of portraying a coldly professional relationship that is evolving into something more.
“It’s a real acting challenge,” Mr. Rhys said. “You have these extreme moments hand in hand with the relationship they have that grounds it, or makes it a little more human.”
Ms. Russell and Mr. Rhys didn’t really know each other before filming started. But spend any time on the show’s set in Brooklyn’s Gowanus neighborhood and multiple people will remark, unprovoked, on the chemistry between them, something that became apparent during an interview with both actors in Ms. Russell’s chilly trailer (the heat wasn’t working). Mr. Rhys wore a thick black winter coat, earning mocking scorn from Ms. Russell: “Do you want me to get you some earmuffs?”
Add another guest star with a cryptic character description to this season’s Once Upon a Time.
John Pyper-Ferguson has booked a large guest star role on the ABC fairy tale hit. He’ll play Ben, a “widower who wants nothing more than to help his young son heal from the loss of his mother.” See if you can figure out the mythological character being explored there. Ben’s son will be played by previously announced guest star Benjamin Stockham (1600 Penn). They’ll appear in the 17th episode this season.
Pyper-Ferguson had a series regular role on ABC’s Brothers & Sisters and has recently had arcs on Syfy’s Alphas and Caprica. And in case you missed it, here’s the Once Upon showrunners talking about which famous characters they would (and would not) consider for the show.

Brothers & Sisters alum Dave Annable is heading to another sibling-centered show.
Annable will guest-star as a hot college professor on an upcoming episode of Fox’s Ben and Kate, TVGuide.com has learned.
In the episode, Kate (Dakota Johnson) decides to go back to college and is determined to focus on her studies, despite encouragement from BJ (Lucy Punch) to cut loose and have fun. Kate and BJ take an ethics class together that’s taught by Annable’s character, Greg — who “doesn’t always practice what he teaches.”
Annable most recently starred on the canceled ABC show 666 Park Avenue. His Ben and Kate episode is scheduled to air on Tuesday, Feb. 26.
Catch Ben and Kate Tuesdays at 8:30/7:30c on Fox.
To find out more about the new series and, of course, glean some of his thoughts on his B&S past, AfterElton grabbed a few minutes with the uber-friendly (and dreamier-than-ever) Rhys at Fox’s recent Television Critics Association All-Star party.
AfterElton: Obviously this is very different from your last TV gig. Was this role a big adjustment for you, or did you just jump right in?
Matthew Rhys: That was an enormous draw. It’s an actor’s dream, really, to play a wide variety of parts and this couldn’t get any different from dear old Kevin.
AE: We miss Kevin, but this is such a good role, too!
MR: Yes! It was perhaps a dream to step into something so wildly varied.
AE: You and Keri have a great chemistry but it’s complicated how your characters were thrown together for their mission. Is there love between the two of them?
MR: I think what makes it interesting in the beginning with the pilot is you’ve clearly been watching this forced marriage evolve over fifteen years. At the point we meet them you see that there are real emotions coming into play which I think sets off for an interesting journey.
Greg was looking too good not to post this one – he was out at the TCA event promoting Golden Boy, which premieres Tuesday, February 26, 2013 at 10:00 pm ET, and then moves to Fridays starting March 8.
