Actress Laurie Holden Has Abruptly Quit Her Role On Upcoming Hospital Drama Chicago Med, Three Months Before The Series Premiere.
The Walking Dead star had been cast as troubled surgeon Dr. Hannah Tramble on the Chicago Fire spin-off, and featured in scenes for a crossover episode in April (15).
However, Holden has since departed the show, which is due to debut on America's NBC network in November (15), simply citing "family reasons" for her exit.
In a statement, Holden writes, "I am so grateful to (creator) DICk Wolf, my fellow cast members, NBC and the entire Chicago Med team for their understanding.

'Desperate Housewives' star Eva Longoria was among the star arrivals at the 2015 NBC Upfront Presentation held at Radio City Music Hall in New York. She looked typically stunning in a calf-length, slim-fitting white dress, her long hair slicked back.
Be warned: this is a movie meant only for hardcore fans of the 1994 original, and other moronic comedies in which plot, character and filmmaking coherence aren't important. If any fart joke makes you laugh, don't miss it. Everyone else probably already knows that they should avoid this movie, which is even more idiotic than it looks. Although for those forced to suffer through it, there's at least a strand of witty, absurd comedy faintly running through each scene.
After an utterly pointless 20-year practical joke, old buddies Harry and Lloyd (Jeff Daniels and Jim Carrey) are once again a team, causing chaos everywhere they go due to their inability to understand pretty much anything that's happening around them. Now Harry needs a kidney transplant, just as he discovers that he fathered a child with Fraida (Kathleen Turner) nearly 23 years ago. So he and Lloyd head off to find his daughter Fanny (Rachel Melvin). She has been raised by a Nobel-winning scientist (Steve Tom) and his money-grabbing wife (Laurie Holden), who's plotting with the handyman (Rob Riggle) to steal his millions. All of them converge on an inventors' convention in El Paso, where Harry is mistaken as a genius, Lloyd falls in love with the wrong woman and everything climaxes in a vortex of mistaken identity and wacky slapstick.
While absolutely everything about this film is painfully stupid, filmmakers Peter and Bobby Farrelly have learned from making solid comedies (like There's Something About Mary and Stuck on You), and the script has an underlying wit to it that hints at a much better movie screaming to get out. But the Farrellys simply leave everything as mindless as possible, using a strangely clunky directing style that feels cheap and underplanned. While there's a steady stream of amusing throwaway gags, the plot and characters never develop into anything engaging, mainly because both Carrey and Daniels are encouraged to overplay every moment so badly that we begin to wonder how anyone could think this was even vaguely funny.

After getting held hostage and nearly killed in 'Dumb and Dumber', the only trauma Lloyd Christmas appears to be feeling is from the rejection of a beautiful woman. Or not, as the case may be. After a 20-year long prank on Lloyd's part, he and Harry Dunne are back in action and return to their home in Rhode Island. Soon, though, Harry gets the shock of his life when he finds out that he has a 23-year-old daughter after finally opening his mail and the pair excitedly decide to track her down. However, it seems the mother gave her up for adoption a long time ago so their search becomes more difficult than they imagined. Lloyd will do anything to help Harry find her though, after falling in love once again when he claps eyes on her photo. The question is, does she really want to be found? And, if she does, how does she feel about having a father who barely knows how to take care of himself?

Chicago's Comic & Entertainment Expo saw Q&As and signings from the stars of some of the biggest TV shows and movies of recent years, plus some of their rather enthusiastic fans!

Chicago's Comic & Entertainment Expo has always brought together a diversity of stars and artists from a range of films, TV shows and comic books every year and 2013 has been no different!
Among the Spotlight Guests from this year's Entertainment category were Natalie Dormer and James Cosmo of the Emmy award winning fantasy series 'Game of Thrones' who sat in for a Q&A session on the Sunday (April 28th). Vampire drama 'True Blood' star Janina Gavankar was spotted at the Photo Op Booth where fans could get their picture taken and bag the actress' autograph. Fans of the zombie series 'The Walking Dead' got a lucky deal too with a 3 hour signing session following a Q&A from stars Chad Coleman and Laurie Holden while the Golden Globe winning Ron Perlman was available on the Saturday (April 27th) for those bursting with questions about his roles in 'Hellboy' and 'Sons of Anarchy'. Creator and star of the sitcom web series 'The Guild' Felicia Day appeared at the Expo on the Friday (April 26th) for any loyal fans willing to pay $25 for an autograph from this avid gamer.
The third season of The Walking Dead rumbles on, with Collider pointing out that some 11 zombie kills were made during the course of the latest episode, with about 15 casualties on the side of the live ‘uns. It was nothing outstanding in terms of the body count compared to some episodes of the show, and allowed the plot to focus heavily on Andrea and Michonne (played by Laurie Holden and Danai Gurira).
The first surprise of the episode – titled Walk With Me – came when our old friend Merle’s voice was heard off-screen, before it became apparent that he’d aligned himself with that dastardly Governor! Gosh. Andrea and Michonne discover this after seeing a helicopter crash into some trees and heading to check out what’s gone on. It’s there they meet the Governor who takes them to a settlement that looks almost too good to be true – Woodbury. In typical fashion, Andrea seems swept up in this relative utopia among the decay of the wider world, though Michonne is more suspicious, and we’re pretty sure she has good reason to be.
What was interesting about this episode was that the entire hour unfolded in Woodbury; you might remember that the season kicked off back at the prison the previous week, but those characters have been left out this time round, which means only one thing – we now get to wait until the two camps become aware of each other. Then things are going to get really interesting.
The season finale of The Walking Dead, series two, aired in the United States last night and there are plenty of hints as to what can be expected from the comic book adaptation's third series. The New York Daily News have summarized some of the hints divulged when they 'probed' the programme's executive director Glen Mazarra for details.
The central character, Rick Grimes (played by Andrew Lincoln) is surrounded by an ever-dwindling group of fellow survivors, in a land plagued by a zombie apocalypse. Fans of the show have been shocked by the deaths of some of the main characters recently, including Shane and Dale. And the bloodshed doesn't stop here; Mazzara has hinted that no character is indispensible, although it looks likely that Rick is there to stay. In a conference call, he revealed "No character is safe, we have examined at different [times] killing every character. No one is safe on this show," before adding "I'm very interested in focusing on Rick for the time being."
