According to TV Line, the character is "quiet, very intelligent and definitely creepy...attentive and gentle with Mason. He's a professional who cares about his work, but we get a sense he might be as sadistic as his boss — and a perfect fit to become his potential henchman."

“Those Angry Days,” from Sony Pictures TV and FX Prods., will focus on the period between 1937 and 1941, as war spread across Europe while isolationist forces in Congress and elsewhere railed against the prospect of America coming to Britain’s aid in the fight against Hitler.

TNT has been cleaning house in recent months -- cancelling shows like Perception, Dallas, and Franklin & Bash. Will new series The Librarians be cancelled as well or, will it be renewed for a second season?
On The Librarians, Flynn Carsen (Noah Wyle) welcomes four new people to the library organization, to help solve ancient mysteries and recover/protect historical artifacts. Together, they fight against supernatural threats -- including the mysterious and immortal Dulaque (Matt Frewer) and the Serpent Brotherhood. The show stars Rebecca Romijn, Christian Kane, Lindy Booth, John Kim, and John Larroquette. Wyle, Jane Curtin, and Bob Newhart recur in their roles from the movies.
The Hollywood-based theater led by Artistic Producer Noah Wyle wants submissions from playwrights 19 and under. The deadline for getting your script in is March 16. Winning plays will be presented by professional actors and directors from June 4—28 at the Stella Adler Theatre in Hollywood. “Each Spring for the past 23 years, The Blank has found the freshest, most original voices in the American theatre, invited them to Los Angeles, and promoted their work during a month-long festival in June," Wyle said in a statement. "This thought provoking work, performed and directed by seasoned professionals, has entertained thousands of audience members over the years. While these authors are often as different as the states from which they come and the subjects with which they deal, they share something truly improbable. They're teenagers. These are not only the voices of today's theatre — they are the voices of tomorrow's as well.” The theater's Young Playwrights »
Title: The World Made Straight Director: David Burris Starring: Noah Wyle, Jeremy Irvine, Minka Kelly, Haley Joel Osment and Adelaide Clemens The tantalizing and superficial emotional and physical landscapes that are initially introduced in any story makes audiences immediately feel as though they truly know all of the emotions, motivations and ideas of all the characters involved. But ‘The World Made Straight,’ the new drama that marks the feature film directorial debut of ‘Survivor’ producer David Burris, and is adapted from Ron Rash’s 2006 novel of the same name, is the perfect example of how initial appearances aren’t always an adequate representation of how people and situations truly are overall.

Longtime “Survivor” producer David Burris’ feature directing debut, “The World Made Straight,” is an adaptation of Ron Rash’s 2006 novel about some hard-luck folk in 1970s rural Appalachia. This evenly paced drama holds interest with its uneasy character dynamics, interesting milieu and effective performances, though a story so frequently on the verge of violence ought to build more tension than Burris manages, while flashback elements that presumably worked on the printed page feel awkwardly integrated here. Ultimately a solid if not completely successful effort comparable to such recent backwoods coming-of-age character studies as “Winter’s Bone” and “Joe,” the pic launches theatrically and on VOD Jan. 9. The cast’s more familiar names should steer it toward a modest payoff, primarily in home formats.
