Last week Rob Zombie revealed that his next film, titled 31, will be a crowd-funded project. The film’s official FanBacked page was unveiled, along with a plot synopsis from Zombie and several videos. Now a new piece of concept art from the film has been revealed, and it comes with a brief bio of someone we could see in the movie.
This new production sketch was revealed on 31‘s website and was drawn by artist Alex Horley. The sketch depicts a man named Cletus who looks to have seen better days. Wearing floppy bunny ears, looking through dazed eyes, and standing on wobbly legs, Cletus has “Lover Boy” tattooed on the visible ribcage of his lean frame. Here’s the official description of this lifer of Murder World:

The cast and creators of ABC’s “Once Upon a Time” enchanted Comic-Con’s Ballroom 20 on Saturday morning, bringing exec producers Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz along with stars Josh Dallas, Jennifer Morrison, Colin O’Donoghue, Jared Gilmore, Lana Parrilla, Emilie de Ravin and Robert Carlyle.
The panel also gave fans a preview of the season four premiere, including the first look at “Frozen’s” Anna and Elsa. The clip showed Anna and Elsa joining hands and visiting their parents’ graves, laying flowers by the stones. “Anna, they would be so proud of you,” Elsa says.
“Both of us, Elsa,” Anna corrects. Elsa says she has a surprise for her sister, and Anna admits that “surprises tend to be hit and miss in this family.”
“You’ll like this one, I promise — it’s for your wedding,” Elsa smiles.

ABC's New Pick Ups
ABC announced this week that it would be adding nine new shows to their line-up, including Felicity Huffman’s return to television and another Marvel spinoff.
Marvel’s Agent Carter is a spinoff of Captain America: The First Avenger and will star Hayley Atwell as Peggy Carter. The show will pick up in 1946, after the Captain’s death in the first Captain America film, and Agent Carter returns home to a sexist military and life as a double agent. After her dealings with Howard Stark in Captain America: The First Avenger, Agent Carter works as a spy for the Ssr (Strategic Scientific Reserve) for Mr. Stark, aka Iron Man’s father. Whether »
Regardless of my personal feelings toward Once Upon a Time in Wonderland, I can’t fault Once Upon a Time for giving the spinoff idea a chance. There are a lot of fairy tales to milk and only so much time in a single season. Not every story can be told, so why not make two shows and cover twice as much ground? Unfortunately, the spinoff didn’t take off and ABC announced it would not be renewing it for a second season. So long Wonderland; it was almost enjoyable. But there’s a silver lining here! Because this was a spinoff that took place very much within the same universe as its progenitor, there’s room for characters, such as the well-liked Knave, to jump ship.

Though Once Upon a Time in Wonderland is ending its run on ABC tonight, at least one of the show's characters is expected to return next fall.
Michael Socha, who plays Will Scarlet/Knave of Hearts on Wonderland, is set to reprise his character on the regular Once Upon a Time next season. The fantasy drama is down in the ratings but is still the network's fifth-highest rated drama so its not going anywhere. Socha would be a series regular.
EW broke the news and noted that other characters from Wonderland could pop up but there aren't any plans currently.
What do you think? Are Socha and his character a good choice to join Ouat? Who else from Wonderland would you like to see join the series? »
Investigation Discovery is getting into scripted mini-series. According to EW, the channel has ordered Heartbreakers, , which will star Jack Wagner, Christopher Knight, Kevin Sorbo, Antonio Sabato Jr. and Rob Estes playing men who start out seeming like dream husbands but turn out to be nasty criminals. Basically, it’s still true crime stories, but without the narrator interrupting the dramatizations and actors you recognize.
TV Guide reports that Bruno Bichir, brother of The Bridge star Demian Bichir (apparently they’re such a prolific acting family, the Mexican MTV Movie Awards have a “Best Bichir in a Movie” category) will join his sibiling in multiple episodes of the upcoming season of The Bridge. He’ll play a Mexican businessman »

Once Upon A Time In Wonderland was a punt that didn't pay off for ABC. An Alice-based spin-off of the parent show, Once Upon A Time, it failed to engage its ready-made audience or attract newcomers, hence the network closing the door to Wonderland after thirteen episodes this coming Friday.
Amidst the disappointment though, is good news for one actor: Being Human and This Is England's Michael Socha. Socha played Will Scarlet, aka the Knave Of Hearts in the short-lived Lewis Carroll-inspired series, and will now be joining the parent show as a regular character in its fourth season.
That fourth season is yet to be officially announced, but according to The Hollywood Reporter, it's merely a formality at this stage.

EW reports that if ABC renews the original series -- which is likely, but ABC has yet to make any 2014-15 renewal decisions -- then Socha's Knave of Hearts/Will Scarlet will head to Storybrooke next season.
This is great news, as Socha was the clear breakout star of the spinoff series and will add a twist of sarcastic and charming humor to the ABC fairytale drama. However, since "Once Upon a Time" has not been officially renewed yet, this is not a done deal.
What do you think of Socha's potential crossover? What other "Wonderland" favorites do you want to see head over to Storybrooke? Let us know in the comments below.
The Knave of Hearts lives on! Once Upon a Time in Wonderland star Michael Socha is set to join the cast of Once Upon a Time as a series regular for its fourth season, E! News has confirmed. Yes, that means Socha, who plays the Knave of Hearts/Will, is crossing realms, leaving Wonderland behind for Storybrooke after the spinoff's recent cancellation. It's worth mentioning that ABC has yet to actually pick up the fantasy drama for a fourth season (or any other series thus far for the 2014-15 season), though this news seems to make it all but official. Entertainment Weekly first reported the news of Socha's move to Ouat. At a press event before Wonderland's cancellation, Ouat's »
Oscar-winning British cinematographer who worked on a wide range of film classics
The Oscar-winning British cinematographer Oswald Morris, who has died aged 98, will be remembered for many classics, including Moulin Rouge, Fiddler on the Roof, Moby Dick and Lolita. He worked with some of the great directors, John Huston, Sidney Lumet, Carol Reed, Stanley Kubrick and Franco Zeffirelli. Many of Morris's films are landmarks in the history of colour cinematography. For Moulin Rouge (1952) he used filters to create a style reminiscent of paintings by Toulouse-Lautrec. For Fiddler on the Roof (1971), which won him an Oscar, he filmed with a silk stocking over the lens to give a sepia effect.
Morris also shot popular favourites such as The Guns of Navarone (1961), Oliver! (1968), The Spy Who Came in from the Cold (1965) and The Man Who Would Be King (1975), and photographed acting luminaries: Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton, Gregory Peck and Humphrey Bogart. »

Though he's a actor of many genres, veteran performer Crispin Glover doesn't like to be defined by any single one of them. He's known worldwide, of course, for playing George McFly in Back to the Future, the villainous Thin Man in Charlie's Angels and more recently the Knave of Hearts in Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland. But whenever he has the opportunity, Glover, who turns 50 next month, marches to the beat of his own drummer. In fact, the film that Glover has declared as his greatest piece of work is a film that probably most people will never get a chance to see because it was shot independently and has never been distributed on video. Co-directed by Glover and David Brothers, the 2007 psychological horror thriller It is Fine! Everything is Fine. has to date only been seen at its Sundance Film Festival premiere, and after that, at Glover's touring »

Crispin Glover stars in the crime thriller The Bag Man with John Cusack, Robert De Niro and Rebecca Da Costa. In the film, directed by David Grovic, Glover plays a motel receptionist with an unnerving quality about him, who befriends the motel's criminal guest, played by Cusack.
For Glover, The Bag Man was something of a diamond in the rough. Following his turn as the Knave of Hearts in Alice in Wonderland, Glover received numerous offers for parts – but not many of the variety that Glover was looking for at this point in his career. “The year that I got this I hadn’t acted in a couple of years. I was in Alice in Wonderland, which was the largest grossing film I’ve ever been in. I expected a lot of offers, and I did get a lot of offers,” Glover told Uinterview exclusively. »
