News Brief: Lucy Lawless, 'Friends' Reunion on Kimmel, 'Full House' Reboot, Kathryn Prescott, Shonda Rhimes

* Marvel has released the first image of Lucy Lawless as Agent Isabelle Hartley in the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 2 premiere.

* Despite all the pieces heralding this as a golden age of television, the Emmys — or more accurately, those who mounted and attended them — still haven’t gotten over their infatuation with movie stars, or retired their age-old inferiority complex. Not only does this fly in the face of history — movie stars aren’t exactly a new feature of Emmy voting — but it does a general disservice to those who have rightfully garnered praise for their television work.

* Grey's Anatomy and Scandal creator Shonda Rhimes is set to make her acting debut in a fall episode of The Mindy Project.

* Finding Carter star Kathryn Prescott has joined CBS' upcoming miniseries The Dovekeepers, playing a teenaged tomboy named Aziza. Blessed with expert archery skills, Aziza disguises herself in her brother’s armor to join the male warriors of Masada — even managing to fool her lover Amram (played by 90210's Diego Boneta).

* Could a Full House return be in the works? The family sitcom, which aired on ABC from 1987 to 1995, is still a ratings juggernaut via repeats on Nick at Nite. Now Warner Bros. TV is mulling a new take on Full House, with some of the original cast intact. Leading the charge is John Stamos (Uncle Jesse) — who has an ownership stake in the show, which gives him good reason to champion the new series.

* Susan Sarandon's first job in New York? "A soap opera called A World Apart. I think I was about 21. No, wait, actually I did the movie Joe before, as soon as I got to New York. It was so much fun that I decided to be an actor."

* Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow reunite on Jimmy Kimmel for Friends fan-fiction. Watch below:
