Suffering in Silence; Worthington, Kendrick, Messina & co. Slice into “Cake”

2 April 2014 8:10 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Jennifer Aniston will have quite the “support” group of actors for her next journey into indie film format. Moving away from familiar rom com territory, TheWrap reports that the A-lister and the previously announced Adriana Barraza and Mamie Gummer will be joined by Sam Worthington, Anna Kendrick, Chris Messina, the wife-hubby tandem of Felicity Huffman & William H. Macy, Britt Robertson, Lucy Walters, Camille Mana, Manuel Garcia Rulfo and finally, Marianne Jean-Baptiste. Daniel Barnz’s Cake, a 2013 Black List project, should be lensing fairly soon. Messina will play Aniston’s ex-husband who still cares about her deeply, while Huffman will play the facilitator of the support group. Kendrick will appear as a ghost who taunts Claire. Mana will play Claire’s nurse, who has no patience for her demands.

Gist: Based on Patrick Tobin’s script, Aniston will play an acerbic woman named Claire who becomes fascinated by the suicide of »

Macy (Shameless), Marianne Jean-Baptiste (Secrets & Lies), Britt Robertson (Delivery Man), Lucy Walters (The Brass Teapot), Camille Mana (Smart People), and Manuel Garcia Rulfo (Bless Me, Ultima) have all joined Cake's cast.

Billy On The Streep: Billy Eichner Tests His Meryl Streep Knowledge

25 March 2014 10:25 AM, PDT | TheFabLife - Movies | See recent TheFabLife - Movies news »

If there’s one thing fans know about game show host and comedian, Billy Eichner, it’s that he’s a huge Meryl Streep fan. He’s gone on record about just how amazing she is, sat two feet away from her when she was guest on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen and even getting into a screaming match with one of his contestants over who was better: Meryl Streep or Glenn Close. Needless to say, that kind of fandom means Eichner must know a lot about the Oscar-winning actress. While at PaleyFest 2014 for the Parks and Recreation chat with Retta and his other co-stars, VH1′s Kate Spencer put Eichner on the spot in what we like to to call “Billy on the Streep.”

Similarly to how he quizzes contestants on Billy on the Street, we asked Eichner rapid-fire questions about the actress to find »

Genevieve Angelson Set As Female Lead In Fox Series ‘Backstrom’; Christopher Denham Joins Wgn America’s ‘Manhattan’

14 February 2014 1:00 PM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Genevieve Angelson is set as the female lead opposite Rainn Wilson in Fox’s new drama series, Backstrom. Created by Bones creator/executive producer Hart Hanson based on the Swedish book series by Leif G. W. Persson, Backstrom centers on Everett Backstrom (Wilson), an overweight, offensive, irascible detective who’s engaged in a constant struggle with his self-destructive tendencies. Angelson will play Backstrom’s second in command, Detective Nicole Gravely, tasked with not only keeping the unit together in the face of Backstrom’s behavior but ensuring that his unorthodox investigatory methods hold up in court. Angelson replaces Mamie Gummer, who played the role in the pilot — the only cast change in the project’s transition from CBS, where it was piloted last season, to Fox, where it recently received a 13-episode order for next season. Angelson, repped by UTA and Suskin Management, has an arc on Showtime’s House Of Lies »

Guy Wilson’s “Days Of Our Lives” Debut and Stevie Nicks Joins “American Horror Story”

8 January 2014 4:37 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

News

Despite a parade of offensive comments, Variety says that advertising rates on Duck Dynasty are still high and companies aren’t worried about facing a backlash for sponsoring the program. How disappointing.

In a surprise development, Fox has rescued another rejected pilot. This time its Backstrom, starring Rainn Wilson as an abrasive detective based on a book series by Leif G.W. Persson. The rest of the original cast — including Kriftoffer Polaha and Dennis Haysery — are sticking around for the Fox version, save for Mamie Gummer.

Backstrom

No, there isn’t a new Twin Peaks project in the works. I’m just glad I heard about it at the denial stage so I couldn’t get my hopes up.

Rainn Wilson pilot 'Backstrom' from 'Bones' creator picked up at Fox: Surprise!

7 January 2014 4:36 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

The 2014 TV pilot season is just getting started, but there's still life in some of the shows networks declined to order last year: Fox announced that it has picked up 13 episodes of "Backstrom," a cop show from "Bones" creator Hart Hanson starring Rainn Wilson as a very un-pc, unorthodox police detective.

The show was originally developed by 20th Century Fox TV and Fox in 2011-12. It didn't go, but CBS then ordered a pilot last spring. After CBS declined, the production company eventually found a home in sister network Fox.

Says Fox head Kevin Reilly in a press release, "Hart Hanson and Rainn Wilson are the perfect combination of creative vision and on-screen talent to bring this one-of-a-kind character and story like 'Backstrom' to Fox. I've been in business with Hart for a long time, and not only does he have a rare gift for infusing darker themes with relatable humor, »

After a two-and-and-a-half-year journey at different networks with different writers, the drama adaptation of Leif G.W. Persson’s best-selling Backstrom series of books is finally heading to the screen with a 13-episode order at Fox.
