These New ‘Sleepy Hollow’ Season 2 Photos Reveal Michelle Trachtenberg As Abigail Adams

Prepare for the second half of season 2

Back in October we learned that Buffy the Vampire Slayer star Michelle Trachtenberg had signed on to join the cast of Sleepy Hollow on Fox and today we get our first look at Michelle in character on the show. Trachtenberg plays First Lady Abigail Adams on the supernatural TV series in a part, I’m guessing, will be more of a guest spot rather than a full-on castmember. The other photos in the gallery are promos from the forthcoming new eps of the show which returns on January 5 for the second half of the second season. Have a look and get ready, Sleepy Hollow will be back among us soon.

Watch: Dr. Evil, Kristen Wiig & Fred Armisen Crash ‘SNL’, One Direction Crooned & The Skits Were Kinda Funny

It's a veritable Xmas miracle!
"It's time to get a Trapper Keeper & some loose leaf ..."

After a very unfunny season of episodes, I must admit that I wasn’t expecting to enjoy last night’s episode of Saturday Night Live all that much. So you can imagine my surprise to learn that last night’s ep of SNL was wholly entertaining from start to finish. SNL alums Mike Myers, Kristen Wiig and Fred Armisen made guest appearances on the show last night which, I must admit, made all the difference in the world. Amy Adams did a fine job as host and One Direction made all the girls and boys swoon just by showing up. Click the embed above to watch Mike Myers as Dr. Evil open last night’s episode of Saturday Night Live and then click below to watch all of the skits and musical performances. Honestly, you will laugh more than once so, yes, Xmas miracles really do happen. More »

Watch: Marilyn Manson Releases A Music Video For ‘Deep Six’

Totally Tubular
Let's Talk About 'Six'

Earlier this week, Marilyn Manson released a new song from his as-yet unreleased new album The Pale Emperora song titled Deep Six. Today we get to see the just-released music video for the track. Directed by visual artist Bart Hess, a somewhat bloated Manson howls the lyrics to the song while a naked woman is enveloped by a computer-generated tube which then envelops Manson. Tho, it could also be interpreted that MM becomes the phallic-looking tube. Why don’t you check out the video above and see what you can glean from it.
