I had the chance to talk with Eduardo Castro, the Emmy-nominated costume designer for Once Upon a Time, and the person behind some of those amazing, beautiful, and crazy costumes we have seen on characters ranging from Rumplestiltskin to Snow White. Castro, the winner of a Costume Designers Guild Award, talked about a range of topics, from the pilot to what to expect for the rest of the season.
Music In the Dark: Red has been very present throughout the show, with Emma in the red dress in the opening shot of the pilot, and then the red leather jacket, and Charming’s red leather. What made you choose to use that color as the sort of signature color?Continue reading →

“When I found out they were making this movie, I begged my agents to get me a meeting with Oliver,” says Shailene Woodley, pouring out a herbal tea in a buzzy SoHo bar in New York. Oliver is thrice-Oscar-winning writer/ director Oliver Stone, who is about to release Snowden, in which Woodley stars, unfolding the story behind CIA whistleblower Edward Snowden’s decision to leak thousands of classified National Security Agency documents.
Working with Stone is a big deal for the star of the Divergent series and The Descendants; she is breaking out of teen roles to play Lindsay Mills, the girlfriend of Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s Snowden. Not that those roles are to be sniffed at; they earned Woodley, who has been acting since she was four, critical acclaim and a loyal fan base – a gauntlet of teens waving iPhones in the rain had to be navigated before she could sit down today. At just 24, she is considered a big box-office draw – but apparently that meant little to Stone. “I just wasn’t on his radar,” shrugs Woodley. “I don’t think he’d seen anything I’d done.”
So what does a tenacious young actress do in such a scenario? Write him a letter. And it worked. “I just wanted to sit down with him and say, as a young woman entering adulthood, thank you for making a movie that will change my life, and my peers’ lives,” she says. “And thank you for doing it so soon. Really, there is no one else who could except Oliver Stone. It’d be easier 10 years from now.” Continue reading →
Sam and Dean go to investigate an outbreak of Swine Flu. Driving away from the town, Crowley shows up in the backseat of the Impala. He tells them he can get them Pestilence.
Crowley doesn’t know where Pestilence is, but he knows the demon that knows, and he tells Sam and Dean that if they can bring the demon ti him, he will get the information.
Crowley invites Dean but tells Sam that he isn’t invited. Dean decides to accept. Sam calls Bobby to complain. Then Sam suggests that he say yes to the devil and he jump into the cage. Bobby loses it on him.
Meanwhile, Crowley takes Dean to the pharmaceutical company that Pestilence operates out of and send him to the 12th floor on his own. When Dean gets up there, the demon says he isn’t interested in the rings from Death and Famine, and instead tries to kill Dean. Dean gets in the elevator, and when he gets out on the ground floor, the demon is about to kill him from behind when Crowley attacks the demon and bashes him in the head, knocking him unconscious.
