My So-Called Life: where are they now?

24 August 2014 10:34 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Oscar-winning to Homeland and more, here's what the cast of My So-Called Life have been up to over the past 2 decades...

Twenty years has passed since we were first introduced to the characters of My So-Called Life, twenty years! Where has the time gone? And more importantly when did I get so old?

While most of you won’t really care too much what I’ve been up to since the show finished, let’s take a look at what the actors have been up to in the years since the cancellation of what is frankly the greatest teen TV drama ever.

Claire Danes (Angela Chase)

After breaking out in My So-Called Life, Danes focused on her film career first with a leading role in 1995’s Little Women and then supporting roles in smaller but interesting films like Home For The Holidays, How to Make An American Quilt and »

Amazon Studios Headed For ‘Promised Land’ In Biblical Drama

15 August 2014 7:12 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Since becoming a fully-fledged producer/distributor of drama and comedic content, Amazon has been dealing with some big names. Its upcoming slate features a project from Steven Soderbergh and the company are even courting the indie scene via director Whit Stillman (Barcelona). But the studio’s latest announcement sees them talking to God and entering what could be choppy waters with an epic Biblical pitch called Promised Land. A dramatization of The Book Of Joshua from the Old Testament, their idea is to develop a pilot based around the story of two brothers leading up to the formation of the Israelite nation. An epic saga involving slavery and a perilous journey, the series concept will also no doubt feature the bloody battles that occurred in the name of conquest.

A complex tale to summarize, but it should be intriguing to see Amazon’s approach in this age of historical output like Spartacus, »

Emmys: A Glut of Great TV Will Lead to Big Snubs

10 June 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

We live in a world where every kid gets a trophy just for showing up to soccer or gymnastic camp. But unfortunately, that’s not so among grownups. The morning of July 10 is going to bring disappointment for many actors, writers and producers. Despite lavish “For Your Consideration” ad campaigns and much-debated category jockeying, plenty of deserving names are not going to get called.

Consider that Michael Landon — star of “Bonanza,” “Little House on the Prairie” and “Highway to Heaven” — was never even nominated once. Not once.

Small comfort, then, that Hugh Laurie, crown prince of the era of misanthropic main men, never claimed the golden statue, despite being nominated six times.

Perhaps this will finally be Jon Hamm’s year: He’s earned a nod every year for “Mad Men” but has gone home empty-handed.

Bob Newhart finally won an Emmy last year as guest star for “The Big Bang Theory, »

Highway To Heaven Reboot in Development at A&E; Mark Wahlberg on to Executive Produce

16 January 2014 4:00 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Highway to Heaven is returning to television if executive producer Mark Wahlberg has anything to say about it.  For those of you who didn't have a chance to watch this delightful series during its late 80s run on NBC, it followed Jonathan Smith (Michael Landon), an angel on probation given assignments by God to help troubled humans overcome their difficulties.  Assisting him on Earth was his human companion, Mark Gordon (Victor French), whose cynical personality often clashed with Jonathan's to humorous effect.  A&E's planned reboot will have an edgier take (of course) and will be penned by Hell on Wheels showrunner, John Wirth.  Hit the jump for more. News of the Highway to Heaven series reboot comes courtesy of THR.  While I'm happy to see this particular series making a comeback, the decision to go "edgier" with it makes me a bit concerned.  It was one of the more »
