'The Vampire Diaries' Originals: 10 people who should emerge from the coffins

5 December 2011 8:41 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Last season, we made some predictions as to which lucky actor might play Klaus, "The Vampire Diaries" most-feared villain. Of course, we were way off, because Joseph Morgan didn't even cross our minds, and he's perfection.

Still, we haven't given up on our dream of being the best backseat casting director ever, so we're back with some new suggestions as to who will play the remaining two Originals.

At least, we think there are only two left. If Mama Original bore 7 children, then only two remain to be met, since one died in Europe, Henrik was killed, and we already know Klaus, Elijah, and Rebekah. Some fans speculate that the first dead kid doesn't count and that Stefan is actually carting around four coffins, including Elijah's. We'll see!

There's no word yet on who the remaining Originals may be (though other sites have reported an Original named Finn is on his way, »

Guardian young arts critic competition: 2010 winning entries

Alice in Wonderland by Rebecca Grant, 15

Tim Burton has snatched the beautifully eccentric odyssey that we once lovingly knew as Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, wrung it dry of anything resembling the endearingly capricious originality of the children's classic, and slung the disgusting dregs into a pretentious, Disneyfied quest movie replete with, frankly, un-special effects.

Burton's insistence that his film was not a re-imagining or sequel to other "Alice movies" made me wonder whether he had actually read the book at all. Nineteen-year-old Alice, played by the apparently tranquilised Mia Wasikowska, spends a disproportionate amount of time at the beginning of the movie prancing around in a tediously twee caricature of Victorian high society. When the dopey antagonist finally wiggles her way into Wonderland, we are ambushed by the White Rabbit, the Dormouse, the Dodo, Tweedledum and Tweedledee all at once, »

New TV Season Breakdown: ABC

17 May 2011 9:27 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The Fall TV Season presentations for all the new network shows take place this week with the third announced today. Here's a full breakdown of which concepts have made the final list over on ABC.

With one strong reality performer ("Dancing with the Stars"), one solid light procedural ("Castle"), one acclaimed comedy ("Modern Family"), one decent rated comedy ("Cougar Town"), and two former flagship sudsers past their best buy date ("Desperate Housewives," "Grey's Anatomy"), the Alphabet is in need of hits to fill some big gaps in its schedule.

Only two shows last season survived and both are modest raters at best - meaning this year the network is trying out thirteen new shows, easily more than any other, in their efforts to score hopefully a few hits. Seven of them will launch in the Fall and six more around mid-season.

The network is keeping most of its returning shows »

Fall 2011-12 drama and comedy pilots: What's the next hit (and what's headed to the trash bin)

10 May 2011 2:46 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

After spending untold amounts of cash on hundreds of dramas and comedies — most of which will never make it to your living rooms — the five broadcast networks will begin announcing in New York next week which projects are good enough to earn a coveted fall pickup. (NBC and Fox will present their fall schedule to advertisers on Monday, followed by ABC on Tuesday, CBS on Wednesday and the CW on Thursday).

Buzz is already strong for several projects (for more on the hot ones, click here). But every year, we always wonder what diamond-in-the-rough was left on the cutting room »

Pilots update! Latest buzz on Gellar, Sutherland, Allen projects

5 May 2011 8:40 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

We’re only a couple of weeks away from broadcasters unveiling their fall schedules and intriguing pilots are emerging as front-runners to land coveted series orders.

Of the two most high-profile super-girl-power pilots, ABC’s Charlie’s Angels has ridiculously strong odds; we’re told its screenings have gone very well. NBC’s Wonder Woman is considered less certain despite heavy online interest in the costume. Should the David E. Kelley project make the cut for fall, it will be interesting to see if the Peacock grants his request to to air the pilot commercial free (but with a sponsor, »

20 TV Pilots We Want To See

26 March 2011 7:00 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

It’s pilot season in the Us. The time of year where the networks finance and film the best (well, most marketable) pilot scripts that grabbed their attention, with the hope of a few being strong enough to warrant a series commitment for 2011/12.

Many will be so heinous they’ll never air; some will impress execs enough that they’ll go to series, only to be axed amidst low ratings; a handful may be lucky enough to last a whole season on-air; and a few may even be popular with audiences and justify a second season. Well, you never know!

Below is a list of 20 pilots that have my interest right now, based solely on their premise or the talent involved. Obviously, it’s unfair to judge these pilots before we’ve seen them, but this is intended to be a quick overview of the positive and negative buzz surrounding them right now. »

And they’re off! Casting is all but completed and production has already begun on scores of pilots for the five broadcast networks. But not every comedy and drama will go the distance. Which project has the right stuff? What pilot already has you feeling like you popped a Lunesta? Check out the mammoth slate for fall consideration. (And remember, all projects are whittled down in late April/early May before the nets present their fall slates to advertisers in New York):

Kristin Kreuk reports to '17th Precinct'; Terry O'Quinn sings 'Hallelujah'

9 March 2011 4:48 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Former "Smallville" star Kristin Kreuk is joining another show about beings who are not of this world.

Kreuk has been cast in NBC's pilot "17th Precinct," a drama that blends cop-show and fantasy elements and takes place in a world where magic and mythical creatures are real. She'll play the wife of Jamie Bamber's detective character, TVLine reports.

She'll be billed as a guest star in the pilot, and if the show makes NBC's schedule her role will likely be recurring. It would be Kreuk's second show at NBC, following a guest arc on "Chuck" last season.

Other notable names in the latest round of casting:

"Lost" star Terry O'Quinn has joined the cast of ABC's pilot "Hallelujah," a Marc Cherry-created drama about a battle between good and evil in a small town. The Emmy winner will play a wealthy man who has huge influence over the town. »

Natalie Dormer Grabs a Piece of Poe

9 March 2011 9:42 AM, PST | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Add former “The Tudors” star Natalie Dormer to the cast of ABC’s period crime procedural “Poe”, which will find former “Kings” man Christopher Egan playing the titular horror writer, who also happens to be “the world’s first detective” in Boston during the 1840s. That imagination should come in handy when he starts investigating bizarre crimes that, one presumes, leaves the “regular” cops baffled. Dormer will play a character name Celeste, though who Celeste is or what she does, is currently unknown. She joins a cast that already includes Kevin McNally, “Legend of the Seeker’s” Tabrett Bethell (playing Poe’s “muse”), and Leslie Odom Jr. as Poe’s forensics partner. The show is from producer/writer Chris Hollier, with Alex Graves directing the pilot. »

Meet Your New Edgar Allan Poe

9 March 2011 7:19 AM, PST | Planet Fury | See recent Planet Fury news »

A couple of months ago, we told you about Poe, the upcoming ABC crime procedural depicting Edgar Allan Poe as "the world's very first detective." Well, the series leads have been cast and FanGirlTastic thought you might be interested in learning which dark and dreary actor has been chosen to portray the father of contemporary horror. Here's a hint: The producers of Poe decided to cast against type — but no surprise there, I suppose.

Edgar Allan Poe will be played by hunky, blonde Australian actor Christopher Egan. Egan got his start on the Aussie soap opera Home and Away, but he's probably best known to American audiences for his work in the recent Amanda Seyfried romantic drama Letters to Juliet. He also appeared in Eragon, the film adaptation of the fantasy novel about a boy and his dragon.

Joining Egan in Poe will be Natalie Dormer as Celeste, who, according to Deadline, »
