He’s well-known for being brilliantly engaging in front of the camera, whether you look at his starring role in the TV series Spaced or his memorable performances in Edgar Wright’s “Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy” (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and The World’s End), but there’s another dimension to Simon Pegg that’s equally entertaining: his scribing side. As many of his fans know, Pegg penned episodes of Spaced and co-wrote the aforementioned films and he’s now lined up to lend his pen to the screenplay of another movie in which he’ll co-star: Star Trek 3.
Deadline reports that in addition to once again playing USS Enterprise engineer Montgomery “Scotty” Scott, Pegg has also been set to co-scribe Star Trek 3 with Doug Jung (Dark Blue, Banshee). 2009’s Star Trek reboot was co-penned by Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman and 2013’s Star Trek Into Darkness was co-written by Orci, »

J.J. Abrams (Lost, Fringe), Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Terence Winter (Boardwalk Empire), Shawn Ryan (The Shield), Damon Lindelof (Lost) and countless others shift from behind the scenes to become the focus of a new documentary, Showrunners: The Art Of Running A TV Show.

The network is also doing a pair of mixed-world panels. A bit later we have the various heroes and villains of "Arrow" and "Flash," but now it's time for a joint "The Vampire Diaries"/"The Originals" panel. Julie Plec will be joined by "Vampire Diaries" showrunner Caroline Dries and "Originals" showrunner Michael Narducci. Representing both casts are Ian Somerhalder and Joseph Morgan. Follow along! For the record: I'm caught up on "Vampire Diaries" and have definitely felt like this season has been an improvement over last.

It was Laura and I saw her glowing. In the dark woods I saw her smiling. We were crying and I saw her laughing. In our sadness I saw her dancing. It was Laura living in my dreams. It was Laura. The glow was life. Her smile was to say it was alright to cry. The woods was our sadness. The dance was her calling. It was Laura and she came to kiss me goodbye.
The question of who killed Laura Palmer holds a particular and acute power.
