We told you Friday that Zachary Quinto was returning for the second season of American Horror Story, joining Jessica Lange. At the Paley Fest round table it was announced that hottie Evan Peters, along with Sarah Paulson and Lily Rabe would also return. All Ryan Murphy will say is they're playing characters who are the opposite of what they played before, which is a shame, because I found Tate all sorts of sexy, in an ax murderer sort of way.

Scientists are anxious to launch Justin Bieber into space. No, really.

'Arrow' Pilot Seeks Daily Planet Reporter Cat Grant

27 February 2012 8:16 AM, PST | MTV Splash Page | See recent MTV Splash Page news »

With the casting of Colin Donnell as Tommy Merlyn last week, we were starting to think that we'd reached the end of the road of big "Arrow" casting announcements. But perhaps we were wrong.

The TV Addict, the same folks who posted the initial "Arrow" character breakdowns some weeks ago, have revealed that there's another familiar DC Comics character making her way into The CW's planned Green Arrow pilot: none other than Cat Grant, fearless reporter for the Daily Planet.

In a recent post, the TV Addict wrote:

Smallville fans who are still in mourning over their dearly departed Superman series will be pleased to discover that Arrow isn’t wasting anytime when it comes to bringing familiar faces back into the fold. Less pleased, will be actress Keri Lynn Pratt, who it appears will have to re-audition for the role of Cat Grant that producers have re-imagined as a »

Comic Book Bites: Bleach manga to become movie, Colin Donnell is Merlyn in TV's Arrow

25 February 2012 12:41 PM, PST | The Geek Files | See recent The Geek Files news »

Japanese manga series Bleach is to be turned into a live-action feature film by Get Smart director Peter Segal.

According to Variety, Segal will produce and possibly direct the project for Warner Bros, while Wrath of the Titans scribe Dan Mazeau is on script duties.

Writer-illustrator Tite Kubo's hit comic (as seen in artwork above) was also adapted into anime in the form of a TV series and four films. It follows the adventures of a teenager called Ichigo who is transformed into a Soul Reaper and must fight evil spirits and guide souls to the afterlife.

DC's Green Arrow, meanwhile, is heading back to television. Justin Hartley played the vigilante in Smallville but this time the character is getting his own show, called Arrow and starring Stephen Amell as 27-year-old billionaire Oliver Queen and his arrow-slinging alter-ego. Oliver is shipwrecked on a South China Sea island for five »

Comic Book Bites: 2 Guns, Karate Kid 2, 300: Battle of Artemisia, Green Arrow

9 February 2012 4:22 PM, PST | The Geek Files | See recent The Geek Files news »

After having only Mark Wahlberg (The Fighter, The Big Hit) attached since the departure of Vince Vaughn, the film adaptation of 2 Guns is rumored to have its second gun in place in the form of Denzel Washington.

Based on the graphic novel by Steven Grant, the film - first announced last August - will follow a DEA agent and an undercover naval intelligence officer who unwittingly investigate one another as each steals money from the mob.

Deadline reports that Washington (pictured above in The Book of Eli) is in discussions to join the project. No stranger to action flicks - including his upcoming thriller Safe House - the actor would work in front of director Baltasar Kormakur who recently guided Mark Wahlberg in this year's Contraband.

Judging from Kormakur's previous work, it's safe to assume a gritty, hardboiled tone for the film, which may be a different flavor than original »

8 February 2012 12:01 PM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

The CW’s Arrow is going to be pretty different from the Green Arrow character on the network’s recently retired hit Smallville. Think Bourne Identity with lots of arrows.

Fans of the DC Comics archer figured they were in for a change the moment the project was announced. The producers include Greg Berlanti (Everwood), Marc Guggenheim (FlashForward), and Andrew Kreisberg (Vampire Diaries, Fringe). Then the formidable-looking Stephen Amell was cast, taking over the role from Smallville’s Justin Hartley.

CW’s development head Thom Sherman tells EW.com there will be several other differences as well.
