Peter Bishop has it pretty easy. Well, actually, it's Joshua Jackson that has it pretty easy. You see, he's the only guy on "Fringe" who doesn't have to play like a million different versions of his character on the show.
And he's not complaining.
"I mean, I can see the fun that everyone's having with their doppelgangers. But I'm not gonna lie, the extra six weeks off this summer was pretty awesome," he joked in an interview with MTV News. "So, while I was sitting there on vacation, I was not thinking to myself, 'Gosh, I wish I was having a conversation with myself right now as a different version of me.' It seems like it would be fun once and then a bit of a pain in the ass after that, so I'm not terribly jealous."
As Peter Bishop tries to work back into the fold on "Fringe," he's now struggling to figure out how to act around the people he used to know and love. The two relationships he's having the hardest time with are the ones with his mad scientist dad, Walter, and his detective lady love, Olivia. Joshua Jackson explained to us how he thinks it's all going to shake out on "Fringe."
"I think Peter went on an interesting journey for the first three years," Jackson told MTV News during a phone interview recently. "We meet him, he doesn’t want to be there, he doesn’t like his father, this crazy blond girl keeps on trying to rope him into ridiculous things that he doesn’t want to be a part of and he's basically just begging for an exit strategy. He just wants to get out of there."
Now you'll get to kill off all of your favorite characters yourself! A new action-RPG based on George R.R. Martin's hit fantasy series, starting with "Game of Thrones," is hitting PC and next generation consoles in early 2012. French developers Cyanide Studios have posted a couple of screen shots to their blog.
From the look of the grabs, the video game will pull more directly from Martin's books instead of the HBO series, so unfortunately, you won't have the pleasure of seeing an Eddard Stark that looks like Sean Bean. What you will recognize is the snowy landscape and dirty looking brutes. Cyanide put out their first "Game of Thrones" game this fall, a strategy game called "Game of Thrones: Genesis."
MTV Geek has more on the news.
Ever since the clock ran down on the real-time thriller "24," fans have been itching for more Jack Bauer. Sure, it's nice that we'll get Kiefer Sutherland back on the small screen in the new Fox drama "Touch," but it's just not the same. We want Jack. We want endless hours of counter-terrorism and espionage badassery. We want more "24."
Well, though we're still waiting on official word about the movie, "24" is making a comeback… albeit in quite the unexpected way.
Out of nowhere, Peter Bishop has been dropped back into the "Fringe"-verse, much to the delight of the show's fans. Without giving away too much, this week's episode, "Novation," sees the back-to-life Bishop struggling to return to the fold that he was once the center of. As he works to convince his girl, Olivia, his dad, Walter, and everyone else for that matter that he's actually Peter Bishop, Walter's deceased son, fans are also trying to figure out just what the deal with Peter is these days.
"He comes back to a pretty bad situation here," Joshua Jackson told MTV News this week about Friday's episode. "One: he's completely confused because the time that you have spent in season four with the characters, for him happened in one second. So the whole thing has to be explained to him. But then he gets dropped out of his world and brought back and all of sudden it's 'ut-oh, it's not good.' It's a bad, anti-'It's A Wonderful Life.'"
FROM MTV NEWS: It's been almost 14 years since the slackest slackers of a generation, Beavis and Butt-head, filled the airwaves with their shenanigans, but when the duo returns to television with new episodes Thursday (October 27), the MTV they return to is quite a different one.
Creator Mike Judge had to address the changes to the channel when deciding which direction to take the show in. Without music videos playing as regularly on MTV, there is less of an opportunity for Beavis and Butt-head to sit around and comment on them as they did during the show's original run. Reality shows like "Jersey Shore" and "16 and Pregnant" have replaced what were formerly blocks of music videos, and Judge said he wanted the new "Beavis and Butt-head" episodes to reflect that shift.

FROM MTV MOVIES: The characters in the fairy tales you grew up listening to are people too. That's a big part of the story behind ABC's fantasy series "Once Upon a Time." From the minds of former "Lost" writers and producers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis, "Once Upon a Time" follows the lives of a number of storybook characters who find themselves trapped in the real world after a curse is placed on them.
Jennifer Morrison ("Warrior") stars as Emma Swan, the woman tasked with saving the fairy-tale world and bringing back the happy endings. Morrison says that there's much more to the series than the familiar faces, like Snow White, and that the show is about something bigger and much more relatable.
"It's relationship driven. There is this sort of underlying universal thing," Morrison said. "We're in a time in our lives where the economy's kind of tough and jobs are tough, a lot of struggles people are facing. In a sense, our show really represents that in the curse that is on the characters and the hope that there is a way out, that you can band together and find a way out."

Don't get attached to any of your favorite characters in the upcoming second season of "Game of Thrones," because star Lena Headey warns that "it can be bye-bye any time."
Her costar Sean Bean found that out the hard way in season one, but Headey teased that her character Cersei is splintering off on a very different path in season two. Westeros's favorite mad queen is on top of the world after she managed to kill off some of her many enemies in season one, and Headey teased that Cersei's power hungry tendencies might start to get the better of her.
"It's intriguing because she's crazy," Headey said with a laugh. "Under the whole stoic thing, she's a little nuts."
[Editor's Note: there are some big spoilers ahead for the first season of "Game of Thrones." Proceed at your own risk if you haven't seen the series yet -- but really, what are you waiting for? Watch it already, it's awesome! -JW]
Sean Bean is ready to head back to the set of "Game of Thrones," with or without his head.
"Fringe" has literally entered a new era with its currently airing fourth season. Following the explosive events of the season three finale, Peter Bishop (Joshua Jackson) has been erased from existence. The result: a brand new timeline for Olivia Dunham (Anna Torv) and the rest of her colleagues, one in which Peter — both the one from our universe and the one from over there — never survived to adulthood.
Torv stopped by MTV News earlier in the week to talk about the new season of "Fringe," and we asked her to tease what's going down in tonight's fourth episode, titled "Subject 9." Though she initially had some trouble dropping hints — "I'm just such a bad tease," she laughed — she did offer a very tantalizing clue regarding how Olivia's past has changed in light of this new continuity.
