Walsh will play Jason Prosser, a hedge-fund manager and a rival to Conrad Grayson (Henry Czerny), according to EW. Prosser will be a rival to the Grayson family in every possible way -- he has just as much money as they do and has a high style to match. Considering the many legal and financial woes faced by Conrad so far this season, the arrival of a new business rival can't mean anything good.
In addition to his "Nip/Tuck" role, Walsh co-starred in "Unforgettable" as Detective Al Burns on CBS during the 2011-2012 season. He will presumably resume that role when the show returns in the summer of 2013.
Will Jason Prosser be a good guy? How will he cross paths with »
"Picks and Pakes," meanwhile, opened with a debate on Nancy Grace about celebrities' privacy. A point was argued that "once you're in the public eye, you can't ask the public to turn a blind eye." Interesting way to open an episode that is featuring someone people often bitch about as being famous for being famous.
Honestly, I don't give a flying fart if Kim Kardashian is on the episode or not. Truly, I'm apathetic. The guest star that had me fan-girling all over myself? Dylan Walsh! For those of you unfamiliar with his work as Sean McNamara, one half the sexiest doctor duo of all time, please add Nip/Tuck to your Netflix queue. I promise, the other »

A feature film about Jessica Watson's solo, around-the-world sailing adventure will be filmed early next year.
True Spirit will recount Watson's story as the youngest person, at just 16 years of age, to sail solo around the world non-stop and unassisted in 2010. However she said the film will delve into more than her solo voyage, which lasted several months.
.There.s so much more to the story than that, you know, the drama I went through before I left, hitting the ship, the personal side of it and the relationships amongst the team that got me there,. she told If Magazine. .There.s a lot of stories and certainly there was a long period of time at sea by myself but what people don.t realise is that was a small part of the story..
The role of Watson has yet to be cast although she will have some input »

The brainy thesp who was discovered by Scott Rudin when he saw the then 12-year-old on "Jeopardy!" has just booked not one, but two new feature films.
According to Deadline, Horn will first star in "Space Warriors," a coming-of-age story (we assume) about five kids who win coveted spots at Nasa's space camp and spring into action when something goes wrong aboard a space station. Sean McNamara, who most recently brought us sugary sweet Carrie Underwood starrer "Soul Surfer," is directing.
Next, he'll play the lead role alongside Kris Kristofferson in the Chuck Rose-directed "Joe's Mountain," which follows a former ladies' man (Kristofferson) who's miraculously cured of cancer and then, in turn, tries to save a boy with bad lungs by taking him to a magic lake to heal him. »

I never actually saw Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close — if only on the grounds of some kind of moral indignation — but this writer was, nevertheless, curious to see what happened with the film’s debut star, Thomas Horn. What’s more, a divergent reaction after the film’s release only further amplified said curiosity; although some have told me that he carried all that grief with a conviction and range impressive for any age, I’ve heard less-than-kind things from just about as many folks. But that’s only personal. No matter how people reacted, there is one question on everyone’s mind: What’s next for the former Jeopardy! champ?
Well, he won’t go the way of Danny Lloyd. Deadline reports that Horn has found himself a big role in two new films — one of which stars a living legend, no less. The first of these would be Space Warriors, »

• Seth Rogen and Kevin Hart are attached to star and produce a buddy cop comedy pitch Paramount picked up from Get Him to the Greek producer Rodney Rothman, who will also pen the screenplay. The script is reportedly about the first interracial police partners in the history of law enforcement, which sounds either like a compelling notion for a period film, or a significantly short-sighted notion of Hollywood history. Probably the former. [Variety]

Thomas Horn was plucked from near-obscurity to co-star alongside Sandra Bullock and Tom Hanks in Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close. He’s showing no signs of giving up the acting lark after that experience, and has just booked two very different movies: Space Warriors and Joe’s Mountain.While they both sound like they could be theme-park rides, only Space Warriors has the potential to become an attraction. Sean McNamara is directing the film, which appears to be an updated version of 1986’s Space Camp. The plot finds a group of kids who win places at Nasa’s training camp for wannabe astronauts, and who must rocket into action (literally) when something goes wrong on a space station. There’s no word on whether a cute/annoying robot will be involved at any point.Once he’s finished pretending to be weightless and bonding with his fellow astro-nuts, Horn will switch »
Exclusive: Thomas Horn, the youth Scott Rudin saw as a 12-year-old Jeopardy! winner and then cast him to make his acting debut in the Oscar-nominated Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close, has been set for two more feature roles. Now 14, Horn will star in the Sean McNamara-directed Space Warriors, about five kids who win coveted spots at Nasa’s space camp and spring into action when something goes wrong aboard a space station. He’ll then star with Kris Kristofferson in the Chuck Rose-directed Joe’s Mountain. In the film, Kristofferson plays a former ladies man who’s miraculously cured of cancer and tries to save a boy with bad lungs by taking him to a magic lake to heal him. Horn plays the kid. He’s repped by ICM. »
