After heading to Bon Temps for a heavily recurring role on the final season of HBO’s True Blood, Riley Smith will be heading back to the premium cable network this winter, with word that the actor has landed a part in the hotly anticipated second season of acclaimed crime anthology series True Detective.
The second season of True Detective, set in Los Angeles, revolves around three police officers (Rachel McAdams, Colin Farrell and Taylor Kitsch) as well as a career criminal (Vince Vaughn) who “must navigate a web of conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder.” Smith is reportedly on board to play Steve Mercier, a “boyish Sheriff’s Deputy” and the boyfriend of McAdams’ haunted protagonist.
The role will be Smith’s highest-profile to date, though some may recognize the actor from his past recurring gigs on The CW’s teen-targeted soap 90210 and Fox’s espionage thriller 24.

True Detective Season 2 will revolve around three police officers to be played by Colin Farrell, Taylor Kitsch and Rachel McAdams, with Vince Vaughn signed on to play a career criminal who finds himself trapped in a conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder. At this time, only Vince Vaughn and Colin Farrell have been officially confirmed by HBO.

She is a former showgirl and chain smoker who chugs margaritas as she mourns the lose of any male sexual attention.

It looks as if Peter Berg very much enjoyed working with his cast from Lone Survivor. Just recently he directed a commercial for Call of Duty: Advcaned Warfare starring Taylor Kitsch. Now it seems he'll reunite with Mark Wahlberg for some more live-action fun, this time in the guise of The Six Billion Dollar Man. Based off the show of the (nearly) same name, the story will focus on a man saved by doctors after a horrific crash in an experimental plane, who is then fitted with bionic »

So it looks like Gambit is getting a spin-off movie. The card-flinging, Cajun-speaking, New Orleans-born pick-up-artist has been one of the most divisive and inexplicably popular members of the X-Men introduced during the comics’ resurgence in the early nineties, appearing in the phenomenally popular animated series and countless video games and action figures guises. He already making a big screen appearance, too, played by Taylor Kitsch in X-Men Origins: Wolverine (generally considered to be the nadir of the franchise in all respects).
Well, presumably thanks to all those time travelling reboots in Days Of Future Past, Kitsch is out and Channing Tatum has been cast as Remy LeBeau, due to debut in the next X-Film proper, Apocalypse, before getting his own solo flick. Which is pretty brave, considering how terrible his last appearance in a solo X-Men film was, and rather daring for a series that »

Peter Berg and Taylor Kitsch have enlisted for another tour of duty in the latest commercial for Activision’s video game juggernaut Call of Duty. The duo, who previously collaborated on Battleship and Lone Survivor, are back in battle in this new commercial for the game. As expected, it’s jam-packed with action and spectacle as Kitsch’s character leads the new game’s protagonist through a series of harrowing fights in a futuristic Lagos designed to show off what players can expect when Advanced Warfare hits the local GameStop next week. Kitsch isn’t the only star featured in the new advertisement – Gone Girl’s Emily Ratajkowski also makes an appearance in one of the clip’s funnier moments. Activision has a “go...

Earlier this year, producers announced they were indeed casting Channing Tatum as Remy LeBeau, better known by his X-Man moniker Gambit. Back then, it wasn't clear whether he would be appearing in X-Men: Apocalypse or if he would get his own, stand-alone movie. It now looks like the latter: Deadline reports that RoboCop screenwriter Josh Zetumer is penning the script, which is based off of X-Men writer Chris Claremont's 1990 treatment of the character. Tatum will also be producing the movie along with his Free Association partner Reid Carolin, with whom he's currently producing Magic Mike Xxl. Somewhere, Taylor Kitsch is wishing for a better timeline. »

Gambit, which also goes by the name Remy LeBeau can mentally create, control and manipulate pure kinetic energy to his every whim and desire. He is also incredibly knowledgeable and skilled in card-throwing, hand-to-hand combat, and the use of a bō.
No release date has been set, but it will probably be sometime after "X-Men: Apocalypse," which Tatum himself said he »

Fox is putting some kinetic energy into a new Gambit movie, with Channing Tatum set to star as the card-slinging mutant, sources confirm to EW. The 21 Jump Street star has long been linked to the character, who has the power to imbue any object with a dose of explosive power. (His weapon of choice is a deck of playing cards.) He gave an interview to MTV stating, “Gambit’s the only X-Man I ever loved. He’s the most un-x-Man X-Man that’s ever been an X-Man … he loves women and drinkin’ and smokin’.” The actor and the character also »

It's in Apocalypse that we'll first get to see Gambit as played by Channing Tatum on the big screen. And that appearance is set to be a springboard for a Gambit standalone movie, that will reintroduce the character first played in the movies by Taylor Kitsch (in X-Men Origins: Wolverine).
Fox is moving the Gambit standalone project forward too, and it's now hired a screenwriter to put a draft of the film together. The writer in question is Josh Zetumer, who co-penned the script for the RoboCop reboot that was released earlier this year.
Nearly six months after producer Lauren Shuler Donner revealed that Channing Tatum will play Gambit in a new X-Men spin-off movie, the project is officially moving forward with Channing Tatum officially signed to star and Joshua Zetumer (RoboCop) writing the screenplay.
The script will be based on a treatment written by Marvel comics writer Chris Claremont, who created the character alongside Jim Lee in 1990, with story details being kept under wraps. The mutant character, also known as Remy LeBeau, has the ability to charge matter with an explosive kinetic energy, causing objects to explode on impact. Gambit was previously seen on the big screen in 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine, played by Taylor Kitsch.
Channing Tatum is also attached to produce Gambit with his Free Association partner Reid Carolin, who wrote the script for and is producing Magic Mike Xxl, which is currently in production. Lauren Shuler Donner is also producing alongside Simon Kinberg. »
20th Century Fox is officially moving forward with Channing Tatum's solo Gambit movie. Tatum is officially on board to star in it, and they've just hired RoboCop remake writer Josh Zetumer to to write the screenplay.
According to Deadline, the story for the film will be based on a treatment that was written by legendary Marvel Comics writer Chris Claremont, who co-created the character in 1990 with comic artist Jim Lee.
As of now, no plot details have been released, but fans have been waiting to see the badass character properly brought to life for the big screen. Taylor Kitsch played the character in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but I think most X-Men fans would like to pretend that that movie never existed.
I'm happy to see that this movie is moving forward. I've always liked the idea of Tatum playing the character. He's become quite a talented actor over the »

20th Century Fox wants the world to know that they’ve not forgotten about card-trickster, Gambit. They might not be announcing a nine-film plan with crossovers more tangled than a box of Christmas lights, but they’ve officially revealed that Channing Tatum will lead the X-Men spinoff with Josh Zetumer onboard to pen the first draft.
Tatum’s name has been linked to Gambit for some time now, as the actor first showed interest in the role over a year ago. While today verifies his involvement, he spoke out earlier this month on the direction the story will take, implying it will be a unique origin story.
Now we’ve learned who will be tasked with bringing that tale to light, as Fox has hired RoboCop scribe Josh Zetumer to pen the screenplay. With only one feature to his name, Zetumer might be considered a risky move, but it seems »

These days, it seems hard for me to believe that there was a point where I did not like the work of Channing Tatum. For several of his early movies, I felt like he was a good looking guy with no chops at all, and it didn't seem to me like he was ever going to loosen up. He had some buzz around him when he was in "A Guide To Recognizing Your Saints," and he was certainly busy as the next few years unfolded, starring in films like "G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra," "Dear John," "The Eagle," and "Step Up 2: The Streets," but it wasn't until 2011 that I started to come around to what he was doing. "The Dilemma" is a fairly awful film, but Tatum shows up late in the movie and suddenly things start to come to life. Also that spring, "Haywire" came out, and »
