Joss Whedon’s Firefly is perhaps one of the greatest cult series’ to have ever graced our TV screens. This space western drama – based around the fallout of a civil war (the Unification War), smuggling and the opposition of the superpower known as the Alliance (or the Central Federal Government) – was cancelled after only eleven of its fourteen episodes and has since become a cult show, resulting in the release of a film, Serenity (2005), a line of graphic novels and even a role-playing game.
The show is set in a new star system in the year 2517 and follows the crew of the ship Serenity, a firefly class of craft. Aboard the ship are, as Whedon describes them, “Nine people looking into the blackness of space and seeing nine different things”. Led by the ship’s Captain and former Independent Army Sergeant Mal Reynolds (Nathan Fillion), are his second-in-command and war-time »

Browncoats -- lovers of the unfortunately short-lived series "Firefly" -- are some of the most passionate fan bases out there even 10 years after the show was canceled. Their loyalty is about to pay off: Joss Whedon's sci-fi space Western is returning.
Though the one-season-wonder won't be getting any more seasons, it will be brought back to life by Dark Horse Comics. Dark Horse has published "Firefly" books before, and revealed the return of Mal and his Serenity crew on its website with this image:
"Joss Whedon's beloved 'Firefly' series and 'Serenity' film's lifespan may have been short-lived, but managed to produce one of the most dedicated fanbases in the history of modern science fiction," the blog read. "Dark Horse is proud to be able to keep Mal and his crew flying with new comics and products. Look for the hashtag #WheresSerenity over the next few months on our Twitter, »

Is "Castle" bringing a "Chuck" star back to the future? Joshua Gomez, who played the main character's bearded sidekick on five years of "Chuck," will guest star in the fifth episode of "Castle" Season 6.
Oddly, he's claiming to be a time traveler in that episode.
According to EW.com, Gomez will play a murder suspect who claims to have traveled into the past in order to stop some terrible event from occurring. The police, however, think that he is just a murderer.
This isn't the first time that an actor from "Chuck" has shown up on "Castle." Adam Baldwin, who played John Casey on "Chuck," reunited with his "Firefly" co-star Fillion on a 2012 episode of the police procedural. Bonita Friedericy, General Beckman on the spy comedy, also guest-starred on "Castle," playing a nun. »

New Episode Airs Saturday, August 17 10:00 A.M. on Cartoon Network
Synopsis: Responding to a break-in at Stagg Industries, Batman rescues a security guard named Rex Mason (Adam Baldwin) who had been exposed to a weaponized toxic gas called Project Metamorpho. Soon, Rex begins to mutate, with the ability to control the elements in his own body. Terrified and unable to control his new abilities, Rex becomes a fugitive. Realizing that this metamorphosis is slowly killing Rex, Batman sets out to find a cure. But Rex is only concerned about the woman he loves – Sapphire Stagg (Emmanuelle Chriqui) – and he’d risk all of Gotham to be with her. But her father – Simon Stagg (Jeff Bennett) – holds secrets of his own and will do anything to keep them apart.

Bill Paxton is a legend. Here at Den Of Geek, he needs little introduction, as his work with James Cameron alone has been enough to secure his reputation as a cinema icon - from the small role as a punk in The Terminator, to the hysterical Hudson in Aliens, as well as a sleazy Simon In True Lies and a rather more grounded Brock in Titanic, there’s nothing he hasn’t excelled at.
While Paxton’s mortality rate in movies is high enough to give Sean Bean a run for his money – he has the dubious honour of dying by Terminator, Predator and Alien, although there’s some debate about whether his character dies during the T-800 scuffle - the beauty of his »
Admittedly, I have a bit of a soft spot for the latest superhero guest star reveal on Cartoon Network's "Beware the Batman." Rex Mason aka Metamorpho is a character that I feel is vastly underutilized and has such an interesting powerset. He'll be voiced by Adam Baldwin in an upcoming episode. Also joining the voice cast is the lovely Emmanuelle Chriqui who will voice Sapphire Stagg, girlfriend of Mason. In the pilot episode of Beware the Batman, we were introduced to Simon Stagg, the CEO of Stagg Industries and an instrumental figure in the creation of Metamorpho. Also, last Saturday's episode featured a cameo from Barbara Gordon (voiced by Batman: The Animated Series' Tara Strong) who showrunners confirmed will feature more prominently in upcoming storylines. The showrunners also teased that the second half of the season will introduce a well-known villain and left the audience with »
Producers and actors from Beware the Batman joined at Sdcc to talk about their new take on the Dark Knight.
Voice actors Anthony Ruivivar (Batman) and J.B. Blanc (Alfred), along with producers Glen Murakami and Mitch Watson, had a few things to say the new show, starting with their version of Bruce Wayne/Batman.
“He's not the jaded, indestructible, gruff Batman later on," said Ruivivar. "He's figuring out where he belongs and his own history. He's got a razor-sharp mind. His relationship with Alfred ventures into new territory as well since Alfred has history as a member of Mi-6." J.B. Blanc added, “The truth about Alfred is yeah, he's different, but the relationship between him and Bruce is very fundamentally true to the franchise.”
Talk then moved onto the villains, with this latest animated adventure eschewing the well know bad guys in favour of the more obscure. Watson said, "We »

Just because "Independence Day 2" is coming to theaters in two years doesn't mean that Will Smith is coming with it. Director Roland Emmerich has revealed that the star of the 1996 blockbuster "Independence Day" will not be returning two decades later for its sequel.
"Will Smith can not come back because he's too expensive, but he'd also be too much of a marquee name," Emmerich tells the New York Daily News. "It would be too much."
He adds, "We have like maybe half of the people that you know would know from the first film [in the script] and the other half people who are new."
"The Amazing Spider-Man" scribe James Vanderbilt is currently polishing Emmerich and producer Dean Devlin's initial script. It remains to be seen whether "Independence Day" actors like Jeff Goldblum, Vivica A. Fox, Judd Hirsch or Adam Baldwin will be back for more. Bill Pullman has previously implied there's a role for him. »

Laura takes a closer look at what Castle episode The Final Frontier says about changing attitudes towards geek actors and fans...
Castle, as a result of its male lead—Firefly’s Nathan Fillion—has an established history of geek referencing. Usually, these references are winks at itself: Richard Castle dressing up as Malcolm Reynolds for Halloween (although he identifies as a “space cowboy” rather than as Mal), Kate Beckett referring to a party as “shiny,” Martha asking Castle (with great incredulity) “You haven’t heard of the Serenity?” and appearances by Fillion’s old shipmates Adam Baldwin and Gina Torres.
But it goes a bit deeper than this. Fillion, himself a mammoth geek, has made Richard Castle into one as well. The mystery writer collects toys, is an avid gamer, and has a full-size Boba Fett in his bathroom. In an industry where actors »
Also, TV vet Jerry O’Connell is set to guest on his wife Rebecca’s new series, which bows June 10.

Twenty years ago, when I first started reading credits of movies I loved to see who'd written the screenplay, one name leapt out at me: Eric Red. In the space of three years in the late 1980s he wrote the terrifying Rutger Hauer road movie The Hitcher and two brilliant genre movies for a young director called Kathryn Bigelow: the trailer-trash vampire movie Near Dark, and Blue Steel, a feminist cop movie with Jamie Lee Curtis as a rookie up against an amorous serial killer. The first two of those have gone on to become bona fide cult classics. But Red remains little known – as does the film of his I really loved, one he wrote and directed in 1988, Cohen and Tate. »

Speaking of Morbidity & Mortality… TNT has opted not to renew the hospital drama Monday Mornings for a second season — news that comes on the heels of the cabler’s longer-running Southland getting the hook.
