As Grey's Anatomy heads towards its ninth season finale, it seems the impending super storm won't be the only trouble for the Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital docs!

Meanwhile, Owen (Kevin McKidd) and Cristina (Sandra Oh) continue to dodge "the talk," even as

You know Hayley Atwell as the heroic Peggy Carter from Captain America: The First Avenger, but recently the brunette bombshell seems to be lobbying to play another iconic character, this time from the video game realm. Get your imagination caps on fanboys and fangirls, it’s time to see if you can picture Hayley playing none other than that Tomb Raider beauty, Lara Croft.
Yes, with the release of the new Tomb Raider game by Crystal Dynamics came news that MGM would also be rebooting the film franchise, but without previous star Angelina Jolie. Much like the game, the new film would essentially reboot the Lara Croft story, starting over with a brand new arc and brand new actress. There’s no front-runner at the time for who studios are trying to grab for Lara, but some recent retweets by Atwell have started somewhat of an Internet campaign suggesting the »

Hayley Atwell portrayed Peggy Carter in Captain America to great praise, and now she has seemingly started to campaign for the role of Lara Croft in MGM Studios' Tomb Raider reboot as she has been retweeting several fan suggestions for her to get the role over the past few days. Below are several of the tweets that @HayleyAtwell has retweeted that suggests she play Croft in the upcoming film reboot of Tomb Raider which MGM recently picked up. The reboot is said to be in-tune with the recent video game, which had Camilla Luddington star as Lara Croft. Do you think Atwell should portray Lara Croft? If so, why? »
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
When it was first announced that Crystal Dynamics were going to reboot the Tomb Raider franchise, there was a mixture of scepticism and excitement. Lara Croft’s origin story is one that hasn’t really been explored and the character’s development from a vulnerable young woman into a hardened survivor would have been a welcoming experience.
However, the term ‘reboot’ made a lot of people anxious.Where it is one thing to make a prequel, it is another entirely to restart a franchise, potentially configuring the classical characteristics of one of the gaming’s most iconic heroines. Yet I am thrilled to report back that Crystal Dynamics have achieved something that looks gorgeous, plays brilliantly and has a story that redefines Lara while retaining what makes her Croft.
Right from the off, Lara is instantly thrust into danger. Suspended, upside down in some underground cavern, »

MGM announced recently that they have teamed up with Gk Films to bring us a reboot of the Tomb Raider franchise! It was previously revealed that the Tomb Raider reboot is going to be in line with the latest game. I've always been a fan of Tomb Raider, I grew up playing the games, and it's going to be great to see a new action-packed gritty take on the character Lara Croft. As of right now Iron Man screenwriters Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby are whipping up a script.
Crystal Dynamics and studio head Darrell Gallagher had this to say in previous interview,
They are working from this new take that we’ve given them. It’s a good partnership. We’re seeing the challenges through the same lens. It was important for both of us to have a cohesive version of the franchise. We didn’t want to see »

Lara Croft is returning to the big screen -- but who will fill her oh-so-tight t-shirts?Paramount previously made two "Tomb Raider" movies with Angelina Jolie back in 2001 and 2003, but today MGM acquired the film rights to franchise.

Is it a McBoy, or a McGirl? Spoilers ahead!
The newly named Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital was buzzing with excitement as it reopened its ER on the March 21 episode of Grey’s Anatomy. With the hospital finally revamped and moving in a positive direction, the doctors were excited about their new roles as owners of the hospital — but can they handle the pressure?
All of the doctors were super enthusiastic about the ER reopening, especially Owen (Kevin McKidd), who purchased a very expensive state-of-the-art body scan machine. The doctors were eager to try out the new toy, but unfortunately, it would be a while before a patient could christen the machine.
With Meredith’s (Ellen Pompeo) baby growing everyday, the surgeon became paranoid about all the possible things that could be wrong with her. Meanwhile, Derek (Patrick Dempsey) got some fatherly practice when he mentored Shane (Gaius Charles) through a »

I'll admit this right off the top: I was never a Tomb Raider fan. Sure, I've played a few of the early Playstation titles in my day, but never for more than an hour or so, and I still have a few of the later games in my library, even though I have never played them. I don't know, I guess I just couldn't get into a game that put puzzles over action, and running and jumping over combat. That was me. That was then.
In 2010, Square Enix announced that longtime developer Crystal Dynamics was rebooting the franchise as a whole, giving the world a younger Lara Croft, and a game focused on her origin--a reimagined origin from the many that had come before (seriously, Lara Croft has been retconned more times in her 17 years than Batman has in almost 75 years.) And the first screens to be shown verified that this was a bold new, »
It was a closed set at Grey’s Anatomy last week due to the emotionally charged nature of the scenes being filmed, as guest star Sarah Chalke — whose storyline thus far has been kept under wraps — brought an extremely personal tale to the ABC drama.

Charlie’S Close Call
Two years ago, Chalke and her fiancé Jamie Afifi endured a parent’s worst nightmare when their son Charlie, then barely 12 months old, came down with Kawasaki Disease, a difficult-to-diagnose ailment that inflames blood vessels throughout a child’s body and regularly confounds caregivers. »

Could love be in the air for Alex and Jo?
Aside from the hospital having to close its doors, that's been the big question on Grey's Anatomy this season as Alex (Justin Chambers) has grown closer to intern Jo (Camilla Luddington) — whom, to be honest, many fans hated in the beginning of the season. But with the help of Alex, Jo has gone from an amalgamation of the worst traits of the Fab Five to settling into a less neurotic character that we could maybe, possibly get on board with.
