Will Beall, the executive producer and writer of CBS’ “Training Day,” minced no words when it came to describing the experience of working with series star Bill Paxton. “It’s f—ing unbelievable,” Beall told TheWrap. “All of us grew up quoting the guy’s lines. He is one of the most universally liked actors of his generation. When I told people I was doing this show and they asked me who was in it and I said ‘Bill Paxton,’ they would all say, ‘Oh, I love that guy!'” The series, based on the Oscar-winning 2001 movie of the same name, »

Cinemablend recently caught up with Law to discuss her role in the Training Day TV adaptation from CBS but also asked about a possible Arrow guest spot. "There’s always talk. Whether or not those talks will ever come to fruition is another matter, but I would love to have a reunion with Talia. I just think having the two sisters either fight side by side together or fight with each other would be epic either way. And then if we could somehow do some sort of flashback with Ra’s al Ghul coming in as well… Let’s petition to make that happen." But before you get your hopes up, Law »
