Sneak Peek more clips of footage from AMC's "Breaking Bad" prequel series "Better Call Saul", debuting February 8, 2015, starring Bob Odenkirk reprising his role as Irish 'criminal' lawyer 'Jimmy McGill' aka 'Saul Goodman':
"...set six years before 'Saul Goodman' meets 'Walter White', 'Jimmy McGill' is a small-time lawyer searching for his destiny...
"...and, more immediately, hustling to make ends meet.
"Working alongside, and, often, against Jimmy, is 'Mike Ehrmantraut' (Jonathan Banks). The series will track Jimmy’s transformation into Saul Goodman, the man who puts 'criminal' in 'Criminal lawyer'..."
"He seems to be a pretty happy-go-lucky guy, and that makes him everything that 'Walter White' is not, " said creator Vince Gilliagn about Saul Goodman, "...and that also makes for tricky drama. When I say drama, even in a comedy, you want drama, you want tension and conflict, and a character that at heart seems at peace with himself is intrinsically undramatic. »

James Franco is set to direct an adaptation of John Steinbeck’s realist-style novel In Dubious Battle, which tells the story of the struggle between labor and capital in 1930s America, portraying is as close to all out warfare.
The project has been scriped by Matt Rager (As I Lay Dying) and will see Franco joined in the cast by Selena Gomez, Vincent D’Onofrio, Robert Duvall, Ed Harris, Bryan Cranston and Danny McBride. Here’s the official synopsis:
Set in a fictionalized valley in California, the story explores themes Steinbeck continued to develop: group behavior, social injustice, man’s inhumanity to man— all themes which continue to be relevant today. A labor conflict between migrant apple pickers and the local growers’ association is the backdrop against which Jim Nolan (Franco) becomes involved in the labor movement and rapidly matures as he learns what it means to do organizational fieldwork. »

CBS on Friday night ordered another two drama pilots, each with interesting pedigrees.
Having already made a production commitment to the project, CBS officially greenlit a pilot for Sneaky Pete, which is being written and exec-produced by House creator David Shore and Breaking Bad Emmy winner Bryan Cranston.
The series follows a thirtysomething con man who upon leaving prison assumes the identity of a cellmate and then hides from debtors by toiling for his “new” family’s bail bond business. There, he uses his prowess to take down bad guys worse than himself, all while his pretty “cousin” grows suspicious of his motives. »

With little meth in sight, the cast and crew of “Better Call Saul” gathered Thursday night at L.A. Live for the AMC/Sony Pictures TV drama’s premiere, with “Breaking Bad” cast members including Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, Dean Norris, R.J. Mitte and Betsy Brandt in attendance, along with Jonathan Banks, who also has a role in the new series.
No meth, of course, because this isn’t Walter White’s show — it’s Saul Goodman’s. Or, more appropriately, it’s Jimmy McGill’s, as the story begins in 2002, long before Jimmy McGill, attorney at law, becomes Saul Goodman, modern-day Tom Hagen.

Warner Bros. has picked up the action-comedy package Mad Dogs, setting Jay Roach to direct. The project is loosely based on the novel of the same name by Three Days of the Condor author James Grady, with the studio planning an action-comedy update of the 1970s conspiracy thriller genre, with a tone that is described as a cross between One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and The Hangover. Wes Jones, whose screenplay Young Republicans topped the Black List in 2010, has been set to write the screenplay adaptation.
Mad Dogs will use the book as a "jumping off point," centering on three U.S. intelligence operatives who have been deemed crazy by their superiors, thanks to their dysfunctional lifestyles. They are sent to a secret government-run mental hospital for spies, where they become convinced that someone is trying to kill them. They try to hatch an escape plan, but when it »
If you’re going to try and get Selena Gomez to go to prom, you have to go big, right?
Well that’s exactly what Cole Labrant did.
The senior from Enterprise, Ala. spent 10 days making an over-the-top, hilarious promposal video complete with lip syncing to Selena’s songs -- and even a few from her Bff Taylor Swift.
Cole also showed off his serious dance moves in corn fields, on train tracks, and in one number that involved a boy band routine. And we can’t forget to mention the beach scene of him confessing his love for Selena while drawing her name in the sand.
For those who are Internet-savvy, you may know Cole is part of the popular Vine group, Dem White Boyz, which have over 5 million followers, so naturally they had to make a Vine about the prom.
Selena must be »
