The Fast & Furious saga was dealt an unimaginable blow at the end of last year, when leading man Paul Walker died in a tragic car accident. Production on the upcoming Fast & Furious 7 was halted, giving the cast and crew time to grieve for their lost family member, and to make a decision as to what to do with the incomplete film.
It was soon decided that the franchise would continue, using the footage that Walker had already shot for the seventh movie, and production started up again earlier this month.
The way in which the film would continue was still unknown when it did, but now the franchise’s Facebook has revealed that Walker’s brothers, Caleb and Cody, are stepping in to help complete the rest of the film in his place.
We have resumed shooting and now welcome Paul’s brothers, Caleb and Cody, into our Fast family. »

One common trait to new Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon and his future Late Night competitor Stephen Colbert‘s history as late night hosts — they both have made several can’t-miss musical moments, like Carly Rae Jepsen‘s “Call Me Maybe” performed with toy instruments, Stephen’s Daft Punk-free Daft Punk performance or that time Taylor Hicks performed “Friday” with both Stephen and Jimmy.
Meanwhile, Splitsider looks at four directions Comedy Central will likely pick for a Colbert Report replacement. My dream sees Comedy Central managing to lure the hilarious No, You Shut Up! away from Fusion. (Let me remind you, this is a show where Paul F. Tompkins and Muppets — Muppets! — parody Crossfire. If the clips available are a good representation, it would fill that Colbert Report-sized hole nicely.)
They know how to be fun, fun, fun fun.

On Monday, April 14, at 8Pm, Syfy will be premiering its newest series, "Metal Hurlant Chronicles". The show is imported from French company We Productions and follows the sci-fi anthology Metal Hurlant, better known in the United States as Heavy Metal.
We got a sneak peek and will let you know what to expect.
The episode Syfy shared with Dread Central is "King's Crown," based on a bloody tournament being held to determine the new king as the previous ruler is nearing death.
The episode is absolutely loaded with awesome fighting action featuring Michael Jai White and Scott Adkins. The athleticism and choreography displayed in the various dueling scenes is easily worth the price of admission here.
Aside from the fighting, which is obviously the centerpiece of the episode, the acting is okay and the digital effects are very good at times, but not always consistent. There are a few spots »

Tony Jaa is one of the most talked about Action stars in the world, with his ground-breaking action and stunt work, he will certainly be around for a long, long time. The first time i seen Tony in Ong Bak, i could not believe what i was seeing, just incredible stuff i had not seen since the first time i watched Jackie Chan in Police Story. Hard hitting fight scenes, excellent stunt work, incredible flexibility, and just had a fresh approach of Martial Arts movie making.
Apart from starring in movies, Tony has also been stunt work in Mortal Kombat Annihilation for the character Liu Kang (Robin Shou). I recently heard he also doubled Sammo Hung, when he did a commercial which required him to somersault onto the elephant’s back.
Over recent years, Tony Jaa has proved to the world what he can deliver on »
A couple of weeks ago the fan favourite Batman villain Harley Quinn made her live-action debut with a brief cameo appearance in the 'Suicide Squad' episode of Arrow, where she was voiced by Batman: Arkham City's Tara Strong (watch the scene here), and now thanks to actor Michael Rowe (Deadshot) we've got our first look at up-and-coming actress Cassidy Alexa as Harley alongside Deadshot and Bronze Tiger (Michael Jai White), Shrapnel (Sean Maher), Amanda Waller (Cynthia Addai-Robinson), and John Diggle (David Ramsey)....
What do you make of Harley's look, and would you like to see more of the character on Arrow? Let us know your thoughts. »

A month ago, Syfy announced that it had acquired the first two seasons of French fantasy/action series Metal Hurlant. The series premiered on French television on October 27, 2012 on France 4, and soon after, broadcast rights for various European countries such as Germany, Austria, Luxembourg were bought, but no USA rep. At the time, I fully expected that, with a handful of actors recognizable to American audiences, it would surely be available to USA audiences a lot sooner; but better late than never. Recapping... Announced at the MIPCom (the annual TV and entertainment market held in Cannes in October) in 2011, Michael Jai White co-stars (alongside Rutger Hauer, Scott Adkins, Joe Flanigan and James Marsters) in a live-action TV series adaptation of the Métal Hurlant Chronicles fantasy comics magazine. Eriq Ebouaney (likely best know in the west as the star of Raoul Peck's Patrice Lumumba biopic) is part of the supporting cast. »

If you’ve ever wanted to see The Punisher, RoboCop, Hellboy and Spawn together in a film then Skin Trade will probably be the closest you’ll ever get to seeing that epic cheese dream fantasy coming true. Alongside former Punisher, Dolph Lundgren, Peter Weller (RoboCop), Michael Jai White (Spawn) and Ron Perlman (Hellboy) appear in action revenge flick, Skin Trade. For good measure, the man who laughs at Newton’s theory of gravity, Tony Jaa (the Punisher…of Elephant thieves) co-leads the picture with Lundgren. For even further good measure, fans of the recent Arrow series will recognise Celina Jade who also stars in this.
Lundgren plays a New York detective whose family gets killed by a Serbian mobster (Perlman) who runs a sex trafficking ring. Lundgren follows them to Bangkok and ends up reluctantly teaming up with local cop Jaa, who has his own personal reasons for wanting »
- Gary Collinson
The trailer is packed out with action, Jaa performing his usual brilliant flips and stunts, lots of flying knees, so i am sure this will be a hit with the fans. I also heard Dolph Lundgren had written this story in 2006-2007, so it’s great to see him fulfill that and finally make the movie.
Nick, a tough NY cop, runs afoul of the Russian mob engaged in human trafficking, and they end up killing his wife and daughter for revenge. Determined to make them pay, he follows the kingpin to Bangkok, the hub of their activities. He teams up with a Thai detective and they decide to wipe out the entire organization and terminate their business entirely. »

"Following Slade’s (Manu Bennett) return and his promise to make good on his threat to destroy Oliver’s (Stephen Amell) loved ones, Oliver focuses all his energy on preparing for battle with his former friend. Sarah (Caity Lotz) tries to help but, fearing for her safety, Oliver pushes her away.

Always the solider, Diggle agrees to help. However, he’s not prepared when Amanda introduces him to the rest of the team – Deadshot (guest star Michael Rowe), Bronze Tiger (guest star Michael Jai White) and Shrapnel (guest star Sean Maher), all criminals he and Arrow helped put away. Lyla (guest star Audrey Marie Anderson) defends the team and explains the world is a complicated place, »
He objects quite strongly to the team in this clip from the episode. Amanda Waller (Cynthia Addai-Robinson) doesn't really care -- she wants a highly skilled group that can, if necessary, just be written off. No matter how much he hates the criminals, Diggle isn't thrilled about this either.
As for the prisoners, they seem to have mixed feelings. Bronze Tiger (Michael Jai White) is pretty stoic about the whole thing. Deadshot (Michael Rowe) is treating the whole thing like a joke. Shrapnel (Sean Maher), meanwhile, has been reading up on protest literature to make his opinion clear.
Will Diggle lead the team? Could this mission come between Diggle and ex-wife/current-girlfriend Lyla.

The upcoming "Arrow" Season 2 episode, "Suicide Squad," is going to be a tough one for John Diggle (David Ramsey). Not only does he have to supervise a bunch of criminals going on a seemingly impossible mission, he also has to make nice with Deadshot (Michael Rowe), the man who killed Diggle's brother.
In addition to Diggle and Deadshot, the Squad also features A.R.G.U.S. mastermind Amanda Waller (Cynthia Addai-Robinson), Shrapnel (Sean Maher) and Bronze Tiger (Michael Jai White). Diggle is used to dealing with morally vague tough guys like Oliver Queen, but this takes the grey areas to a whole new level.
"Suicide Squad" airs Wednesday, March 19 at 8 p.m. on The CW. »
