28 May 2015 5:53 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Michael Rooker Reports To The Belko Experiment

24 May 2015 9:36 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

It’s hardly the most surprising piece of casting news given their long professional association, so we’re more shocked it took this long for James Gunn to announce. But announce it he has: Michael Rooker will be part of the cast for horror thriller The Belko Experiment. Rooker, who has worked with Gunn on the likes of Guardians Of The Galaxy, Slither and Super, is set to play Bud Melks, the head of maintenance for the Belko building in the film, who is concerned when mysterious forces make his colleagues start killing each other lest they die themselves.Wolf Creek’s Greg McLean will be directing Gunn’s script for the film, which already features John Gallagher Jr., Tony Goldwyn, Melonie Diaz and John C. McGinley in its cast. The cameras are set to start rolling in Bogota, Colombia, next month. Rooker will next be seen in a drama called Bolden! »

Michael Rooker reuniting with James Gunn on The Belko Experiment

23 May 2015 1:57 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Well this won’t come as a surprise, but James Gunn has announced that he’s reuniting with Michael Rooker for his newest project, horror-thriller The Belko Experiment.

“Rooker plays Bud Melks, the head of maintenance in the Belko building. He’s not a racist thug like Merle in The Walking Dead, and he doesn’t have a flying arrow like Yondu in Guardians of the Galaxy – in fact, he’s a pretty nice guy – so he’s ill-equipped to deal with the mysterious forces who start making all of the employees in Belko start killing each other unless they want to be killed themselves,” states Gunn on Facebook.

The Belko Experiment has been scripted by Gunn and will be directed by Greg McLean (Wolf Creek), with Rooker joining a cast that so far includes John Gallagher Jr. (The Newsroom), John C. McGinley (Scrubs), Tony Goldwyn (Scandal) and Melonie Diaz »

The Walking Dead” star Michael Rooker will reteam with James Gunn on a new horror film, “The Belko Experiment.”

McGinley, “Fruitvale Station’s” Melonie Diaz, “The Newsroom” star John Gallagher Jr. and “Scandal” president Tony Goldwyn.

“We’ve done three movies, two reality shows, a video game and a Web series together, been on a bromantic trip to Paris with just the two of us, and spent many nights as the last two maniacs at a party, so did you ever think there was any possibility that my pal Michael Rooker would not be cast in our horror/action/thriller ‘The Belko Experiment,’ especially when it’s been comprised of such overwhelming talent? Of course not.”

Following on from the casting of John Gallagher Jr. (The Newsroom, Short Term 12), James Gunn has taken to Facebook to announce that John C. McGinley (Office Space, Scrubs) has signed on for a role in his latest project The Belko Experiment.

“John will play Wendell Dukes, one of the top execs at Belko, and longtime friends with Tony Goldwyn’s character, Barry Norris,” states Gunn. “Wendell is a bit socially awkward, and has never been at home with the other employees at Belko… I’m not sure his social problems will be eased much when mysterious forces start compelling them to kill one another or be killed.”

Gunn has written the script for The Belko Experiment and is also producing, with Greg McLean (Wolf Creek) directing. The film tells the story of an American company in South America which a company who seals off its building and orders its »

The Guardians Of The Galaxy director has announced that John C. McGinley and Melonie Diaz are now aboard the film.Wolf Creek’s Greg McLean is handling the directorial chores on this one, since Gunn has his hands full wrangling together another script about Rocket Racoon and co. The Belko Experiment, which Gunn wrote several years ago and has since polished, is set at a facility of the Belko company in South America which is mysteriously sealed off at the beginning of a work day, and its employees ordered to either kill each other or be killed themselves.

‘Scrubs’ Alum John C. McGinley Joins James Gunn’s ‘Belko Experiment’

21 May 2015 11:33 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

John C. McGinley has joined the cast of “Guardians of the Galaxy” director James Gunn’s new horror film, “The Belko Experiment.”

Gunn made the announcement Thursday on his Facebook page. He also revealed castings this week of “Fruitvale Station’s” Melonie Diaz, “The Newsroom” star John Gallagher Jr. and “Scandal” president Tony Goldwyn.

“When I think of John, I often think of Bob Slydell from ‘Office Space,'” Gunn said. “Fortunately, in that film, the characters only had to murder each other spiritually, and not physically, as they do in ‘Belko.’ John may be most recognized from ‘Scrubs,’ but he’s an eerily dexterous actor who can do almost anything and has shone in any role he’s been given. He most recently got rave reviews for his performance in ‘Glengarry Glen Ross’ on Broadway with Al Pacino and Bobby Cannavale.”

Ground Floor: Sitcom Cancelled by TBS After Two Seasons

14 February 2015 8:10 PM, PST | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

There won't be a third season for the Ground Floor sitcom. A couple weeks ago, it was reported that TBS had cancelled the comedy but a representative for the cable channel said that a decision hadn't been made about the show's future. Now, that all of the second season episodes have aired, TBS has officially decided they won't be ordering any more.

Ground Floor follows the romantic relationship of a young hotshot banker (Skylar Astin) and a beautiful maintenance worker (Briga Heelan). The rest of the sitcom's cast includes Rory Scovel, Rene Gube, James Earl, Emily Heller, and John C. McGinley.

Season two ended up averaging a 0.6 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 1.47 million viewers. That was essentially on par with the first season's performance but apparently not good enough to earn Ground Floor a third season renewal. The last episode aired on »

Ground Floor: TBS Sitcom Cancelled? No Season Three?

31 January 2015 4:27 PM, PST | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

It looks like Bill Lawrence's low-rated sitcom may be ending soon. TVLine reports that TBS has cancelled Ground Floor after two seasons on the air. A rep for the cable channel however maintains that the series hasn't been officially cancelled.

Ground Floor follows the romantic relationship of a young hotshot banker (Skylar Astin) and a beautiful maintenance worker (Briga Heelan). The rest of the sitcom's cast includes Rory Scovel, Rene Gube, James Earl, Emily Heller, and John C. McGinley.

Airing on Tuesday nights, Ground Floor is currently averaging a 0.6 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 1.49 million viewers. That's about what the first season drew so the sitcom's performance has been pretty consistent.

On the negative side, the third season of Sullivan & Son did about the same in the ratings and it was cancelled after three seasons. »

Zach Braff and Donald Faison Kick Back and Relax on Mlk Day

19 January 2015 5:44 PM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Zach Braff posted a supersweet photo of himself and Bff Donald Faison hugging in a pool on Instagram on Monday. The cute snap was captioned, "Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day. This was one of his dreams." Don't you love seeing the former Scrubs costars kicking back together? This is just the latest encounter between the two besties this month. Last week, Zach crashed Donald's Reddit Ama, just days after watching the Golden Globes at home with Donald's 1-year-old son, Rocco; the Wish I Was Here star shared an adorable photo of them together, writing, "My Golden Globes date cracking up... Mini-Faison." Donald and his wife, CaCee Cobb, are currently expecting their second child, a baby girl. At the beginning of the year, we got another great Scrubs-related moment when Donald and Zach reunited with their former castmate John C. McGinley, who played Dr. Perry Cox. »

It seems that TBS is raising their ratings standards for their original sitcoms. After all, the cable channel has cancelled Men at Work and Sullivan & Son and, Cougar Town is ending.
