Kim Possible’s Next Mission is a Live-Action TV Movie

Stay in the loop on industry and casting news with our write-up on who’s been slated for recent film and television roles! “Kim Possible”“Kim Possible,” the beloved Disney cartoon from the early 2000s, is about to go live action—in TV movie form. The cartoon ended in 2007, but the series has remained a prominent fixture online, due in part to its message of female empowerment. The movie will follow Kim Possible as she encounters a superhuman teen. When her new friend goes missing, it’s up to the high schooler to save him. While all corners of the internet are rallying behind their dream actors, a young actor has yet to take on the role.

Jan Maxwell dead: Tony Awards record holder dies at 61

Jan Maxwell dead: Tony Awards record holder dies at 61
Jan Maxwell, a beloved mainstay of New York City theater, died on Feb. 11 at the age of 61. Over the course of her illustrious career, in which she appeared in 13 Broadway and numerous Off-Broadway productions, Maxwell earned five Tony Award nominations for her work in both musicals and plays, comedies and dramas, displaying a near-unparalleled mastery of both genres.

Maxwell first appeared on the Great White Way in the original production of “City of Angels” as an understudy, swing, and replacement. Her first bid at the Tony Awards came over a decade later for her featured role in the musical “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang” in 2005, for which she won her first Drama Desk Award. She went on to earn Tony nominations for her performances in the play “Coram Boy” (2007) and in revivals of “Lend Me a Tenor” (2010) and “The Royal Family” (2010), taking home her second Drama Desk for the latter.

Former Law and Order Star Diane Neal Running for Congress
If you have ever watched the enormously popular television show Law & Order, you undoubtedly already know who Diane Neal is. If you have somehow managed to miss watching this television show while the rest of the world was tuning in, Neal played Casey Novak on the show, serving as Assistant District Attorney.

Reg E. Cathey, Emmy Winner From House of Cards, Dead at 59
Actor Reg E. Cathey, who co-starred on HBO’s The Wire and Oz and won an Emmy for his role on Netflix’s House of Cards, has died at the age of 59.

The Wire creator David Simon remembered working with Cathey fondly in a tweet on Friday:

Reg Cathey, 1958-2018. Not only a fine, masterful actor — but simply one of the most delightful human beings with whom I ever shared some long days on set. On wit alone, he could double any man over and leave him thinking. Reg, your memory is a great blessing.

Raúl Esparza Quits Law & Order: Svu After Six Years!

Law & Order: Svu just lost a major star.

Raúl Esparza took to Twitter to release a statement shortly after Law & Order: Svu Season 19 Episode 12 aired and confirmed his days with the NBC crime drama are over.

“Goodbye Barba. Thank you. You changed my life. My squad. And you, you always, my Liv, my friend Mariska. I will always treasure my time with all of you,” the actor said.

Esparaza joined the cast during Law & Order Season 14 and emerged as a hit with viewers. This paved the way for him to be upped to series regular.

“It has truly been an honor writing for Raul. The power, sensitivity, and morality he brought to the character of Rafael Barba never failed to elevate our scripts,” showrunner Michael Chernuchin said in a statement.

“Raul is family, and we look forward to seeing his talent shine in new projects. As for Barba, Svu

Law & Order: Svu Season 19 Episode 12 Review: The Undiscovered Country

I was beyond excited when I heard that Sam Waterson and Philip Winchester were going to guest star on Law & Order: Svu.

I've been a fan of the Law & Order franchise from the beginning and Sam Waterson for longer than that. I still remember his role on the short-lived I'll Fly Away, and I love him on Grace & Frankie.

I was heartbroken when Chicago Justice was canceled after only one season, so seeing Peter Stone again was doubly exciting. I didn't expect Ben Stone to die, nor did I expect Barba to resign so that Peter could take his place, though.

Law & Order: Svu Season 19 Episode 12 was a powerful hour of television that was full of surprises. I'm not quite sure how I feel about any of this.

Exit stories are always risky. Viewers get attached to characters and seeing them go is heartbreaking!

I mean, I'm still not

Sundance Review: John Cho's Search is a Good Movie with a Disappointing Ending

Search is the story of one family, specifically, a father and daughter, told completely through computer screens. I wasn't entirely sold on the premise either. It seemed too gimmicky, but from the Windows Xp startup screen, I was hooked. The story unfolds through pictures, emails, home videos, you name it. And within the first ten minutes, I was not only completely invested, but crying like I hadn't cried during an opening sequence since Pixar's Up. 

After the family faces a devastating tragedy (no spoilers), the father David (John Cho) and his daughter Margot have a seemingly typical father-daughter relationship, with David pestering his daughter with iMessages about taking out the trash. But all is not as it seems.

One night, Margot, who claimed to be at an all-night study session, disappears. She doesn't respond to calls or texts, and none of her classmates seem to know where she is.

Stephen King Wants To See A Law & Order Vampire Show

Ok, now picture this TV series: Law & Order: Vampire Squad. It may sound like something that makes for a comedy but Steven King came up with the idea and it actually is one of the best ideas I have heard in a long time for the “Law & Order” franchise. King is certainly capable of pulling it off, and there is little doubt that the series could use some fresh blood. (Sorry, I couldn’t pass it up.) Look, I don’t know about you but there are only so many murders, rapes, and molestations one can watch without becoming depressed

Workplace Romances on TV: Why #MeToo Doesn’t Change Things for Shows Like ‘The X-Files’ and ‘Grey’s Anatomy’

  • Indiewire
In the eleventh season of Fox’s “The X-Files,” fans of the unique bond between FBI agents Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) were privy to a unique moment in the show’s history — a scene in the episode “Plus One” that contained too much evidence to dispute that at least in this one instance, the erstwhile partners enjoyed a physical interlude beyond their previously established platonic state.

After over 200 episodes, two movies, and giving birth to a child who they certainly think is theirs biologically (yeah yeah, hush up about the Season 11 premiere, at least for the moment) the question of whether or not Mulder and Scully have ever (to use a phrase only someone crass and tasteless would use) “gone to Pound Town” now seems relatively moot.

But it’s taken on a whole new flavor here in the year 2018, as the #MeToo movement has many of

TV Ratings: '9-1-1' Bounces Back, Ties 'Modern Family'

Wednesday was another night of overall growth for the broadcast networks. After a resilient Tuesday, the week continued to bring improvement for many series — including Fox's recently renewed freshman 9-1-1.

The drama climbed 20 percent in its third episode, matching its premiere score among adults 18-49, with a 1.8 rating. That had it tying an also improved Modern Family on ABC for top program of the evening. It helped deliver an overall demo win to Fox, which started the night with a steady episode of The X Files (1.1 adults).

Mara Brock Akil, Salim Akil Own Drama ‘Love Is__’ Adds Five Series Regulars

The upcoming Own series “Love Is__” has added five more series regulars to its cast, Variety has learned.

From creators Mara Brock Akil and Salim Akil, the series is based on the true story of the husband and wife team, telling the story of a power couple navigating the landscape of Black Hollywood. The new regulars join the previously announced series leads Michele Weaver, who plays Nuri, and Will Catlett, who plays Yasir.

Idara Victor has been cast in the role of Angela. A member of the same writing staff as Nuri, Angela doesn’t always agree with everything Nuri says, mainly because she is a disgruntled drama writer stuck in a comedy she doesn’t believe in. Victor has appeared on shows like “Law & Order,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” and “Mad Men.” She was also a series regular on the TNT series “Rizzoli & Isles” and recurred on all four seasons of AMC’s “Turn: Washington

‘The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story’ Review: A Very Different ‘Story’ Yields Uneven Rewards

‘The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story’ Review: A Very Different ‘Story’ Yields Uneven Rewards
Virtually everything about the lengthy title “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story” is misleading. For one, it’s less of a crime story — in the “Law & Order,” cops and courtrooms sense — than a biography of Andrew Cunanan, the man who murdered at least five people over a three-month span in 1997. One of those people was iconic fashion designer Gianni Versace, but his relevance to Cunanan’s life, and thus the series overall, is largely symbolic — he’s the American dream, and he’s still damaged.

To the show’s credit, these shifts aren’t problematic or even the most jarring twist on Season 1’s “The People vs. O.J. Simpson.” “Versace” is told in flashforward; it starts with Versace’s death and then works its way back in time through Cunanan’s other homicides and even into his childhood. This structural choice never delivers the emotional
