Lyndsy Fonseca Boards Marvel’s Agent Carter TV Series

10 hours ago | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Former Nikita agent Lyndsy Fonseca has been recruited by Marvel to finalize the cast for the upcoming Agent Carter TV series set to debut during the Agents of Shield winter hiatus. Though Fonseca's resume, which also includes Kick-Ass, might indicate she'll be kicking Hydra butt alongside Hayley Atwell, that assumption  couldn't be further from the truth.

Instead, Fonseca will play an aspiring actress by the name  of Angie Martinelli. Like Peggy Carter, Martinelli is struggling to find her place as a woman in the post-war world of 1946, and she will befriend Carter as they lean on each other to overcome numerous obstacles.

Here's Marvel's official synopsis for Peggy Carter, based on a character that first appeared in Captain America: The First Avenger, in modern times in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and in the Season 2 premiere of Agents of Shield. She will also appear in next summer's Avengers: Age of Ultron, »

Amazon Studios Preps Next Pilot ‘Down Dog,’ Casts Lyndsy Fonseca

5 September 2014 2:39 PM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Earlier this summer, rumors floated around the web about Amazon Studios ordering a new comedy series called Down Dog. Today, it seems they’ve finally started working on the series as they’ve cast Lyndsy Fonseca in a lead role. The Hollywood Reporter first wrote about the Nikita star’s new role in the pilot, which will introduce viewers to the character Logan (played by Bad Teacher’s Josh Casaubon), a deadbeat guy simply getting by on his “charisma, charm and good looks” until he’s forced to run his ex-girlfriend’s yoga studio. Fonseca will star opposite Casaubon, playing a yoga teacher named Winter who’s “described as stunning if bedraggled, waif and unreliable and always late — and a love interest for Logan.” Down Dog was created by Robin Schiff of Are You There, Chelsea? and the pilot starring Casaubon and Fonseca will be directed by Brad Silberling, director »

Specialty Box Office Preview: ‘The Trip To Italy’, ‘Frank’, ‘Jealousy’, ‘Life After Beth’, ‘Fort McCoy’

14 August 2014 6:29 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

In this weekend’s specialty box-office debuts, IFC Films hopes to replicate the critical and commercial success of Michael Winterbottom’s first amusing little travelogue/talker of a feature, The Trip, with a semi-sequel, The Trip To Italy. The second Trip again stars Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon; the entertainingly garrulous pair on yet another jaunt across restaurants, countryside and philosophy. The latest Trip will bow in NYC and La this weekend after a successful Australian run earlier this summer (or their winter).

Frank, a British-Irish-American drama from Magnolia Pictures featuring Michael Fassbender that had runs at Sundance and SXSW, bows in only one U.S. theater this weekend. Frank centers on an eccentric band, giving Fassy fans a chance to hear the Oscar-nominated actor sing, albeit from behind a mask (he’s not bad, actually).

Other notable new films include Philippe Garrel‘s Jealousy, which Distrib Films will expand »

Female-Fronted Hollywood Remakes We’d Like to See

8 August 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The calls have been heard loud and clear, both on stage and off at the Oscars or in the annals of the web and at the box office: the world demands more movies with women, about women, by women and for women.

Every week a movie seems to be failing the Bechdel test, and every week a separate movie ends up walking away with the lion’s share at the box office. From hits like Maleficent, The Fault in Our Stars and Lucy to monster franchises like The Hunger Games, the old notion that teenage boys are the ones driving the demand at the movies is rapidly eroding. The Hollywood Reporter pointed out that Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy opened to a 44 percent female audience on the film’s opening weekend, the highest share for any Marvel movie to date.
