'Game of Thrones,' 'Sopranos' director Alan Taylor tapped for 'Thor 2'

25 December 2011 10:54 AM, PST | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

Marvel's sequel to "Thor" has found a new director in the land of Westeros.

Alan Taylor, who directed the final two episodes of "Game of Thrones'" first season for HBO, has been hired to helm "Thor 2," Deadline reports. He replaces Patty Jenkins, who parted ways with Marvel earlier this month.

Taylor has only a couple of feature films to his credit -- most notably the 1995 indie "Palookaville" -- but he's a prolific TV director. He's been a go-to guy for HBO, directing episodes of "The Sopranos," "Deadwood," "Sex and the City," "Bored to Death" and "Boardwalk Empire." His other credits include the pilot and several other episodes of "Mad Men" and multiple episodes of "Homicide."

"Thor 2" is currently scheduled for release in November 2013, and you'll see Chris Hemsworth as the Norse god in "The Avengers" next May. »

True Blood: Christopher Meloni Officially Joins Season 5

TVGuide is reporting that True Blood has found its latest guest star in Law & Order: Svu vet Christopher Meloni. Meloni will be playing an ancient vampire with power over Eric and Bill in the show's fifth season, scheduled to debut next summer, in his first TV role since leaving Svu. His character name and any detailed description have yet to be released, but when the show resumes production, the picture will be a whole lot clearer.

This, of course, isn't Meloni's first venture into pay cable drama, as he maintained a role on HBO's Oz for four seasons playing charming sociopath Chris Keller. He's also made appearances in two other Law & Order incarnations (Trial by Jury and the original series), Scrubs, and Homicide: Life on the Street, as well as films like Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, »

Exclusive: CAA has signed Melissa Leo, the reigning Best Supporting Actress winner for The Fighter. Leo had been repped by ICM.

Leo most recently starred in the Kevin Smith-directed Red State and the HBO miniseries Mildred Pierce. »

New Shows from Tom Fontana, J.J. Abrams and Neve Campbell

8 December 2011 7:23 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

In the past few days, several new shows have been approved and it’s a bit hard to keep up, so here’s a catch up.

A&E has decided to work with Tom Fontana, who previously was the showrunner for Oz and Homicide: Life on the Street. The new show stems from a really intriguing premise. It is tentatively called The Box and will focus its half-hour episodes entirely on a police interrogation. The Box intends to take all the drama that surrounds a typical cop drama and unfold it closer to real time in the interrogation room. As Bob DeBitetto, President and General Manager of A&E Network and Bio Channel “The Box takes the most thrilling scene of a crime procedural and puts it at center stage in a unique format.”

If the show is picked up, then Arvin Brown, who has worked on NCIS and The Closer »

A&E Buys Cop Drama With A Twist From Tom Fontana And Barry Levinson

7 December 2011 1:00 PM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

A&E Network has teamed with Homicide alums Tom Fontana and Barry Levinson for The Box, a half-hour cop drama that takes place largely within the walls of the interrogation room. The cable network has ordered two scripts from the project, which will be written by Fontana. The Box features a small ensemble of detectives as they interrogate the key suspect or witness in a case. The spine of each half-hour episode will be the verbal dance between cop and suspect in “the box,” with the complete story of the crime, the investigation and the legal hurdles woven into and around the interrogation. The project expands on a key element from Homicide, where plots often pivoted on what the series called “The Box,” a sterile, rectangular interrogation room where suspects were brought in for questioning. “The Box takes the most thrilling scene of a crime procedural and puts it at »

First off, congratulations on finishing Luv, and of course for getting into Sundance!  Sheldon, what’s your background and how did you get into film?

Callie Thorne on 'daunting' starring role in 'Necessary Roughness' [Video]

29 November 2011 9:17 PM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Callie Thorne, who stars in the new USA hit "Necessary Roughness," admits she was worried about headlining a series after so long as an ensemble player. "It seemed very daunting to me. I liked being part of the supporting layer that is there to push the 'A' storyline along." Inspired by New York Jets psychologist Donna Dannenfelser, Thorne plays Dr. Dani, a recently divorced Long Island mom, juggling her home life with her new job as a therapist for the fictional New York Hawks. This is just the latest in a line of tough-talking women for Thorne that included roles on NBC's lauded "Homicide: Life on the Street" and FX's "Rescue Me." As she tells senior editors Rob Licuria and Chris Beachum, "They've all had a lot of sass; they've had a lot of balls." Meeting the woman that inspired her character, Callie admits to being "very nervous; and it »

Deadwood, The Wire & The Sopranos – Who Is The Best of the Best?

20 November 2011 11:58 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Since HBO taught us how TV should be made, the medium has divided into two. On one side there’s the total shit that’s still being trotted out by the networks; filled with hackneyed characters, formulaic plotlines, endless chase scenes and flashbacks that patronise the audience by spoon-feeding them reminders of why something is relevant to the plot. Then there’s the good stuff; original ideas, realistic scripts and dialogues, compelling storylines, great acting and best of all, a faith on the part of the program makers that the audience has a modicum of intelligence.

Well actually there’s a third category: The stuff that shows a bit of both – Lost, True Blood, even Dexter with its you-need-me-to-explain-everything-you-are-seeing voiceover – all manage to tick the right boxes some of the time, only to let us down the rest of the time.

But we’re focusing on the good stuff.  The shows which, »

House Season 8 and Hugh Laurie Get Wright

House Season 8 and Hugh Laurie Get Wright

Jeffrey Wright might have faced some serious bad guys as CIA agent Felix Leiter in the last two James Bond movies, but not even a Bond adventure can prepare him for his newest adversary – Dr. Gregory House.

Wright hasn’t been on network TV since doing a story arc on 1997’s Homicide, but TVLine reports that he’s headed to network land one more time as he journeys to Princeton Plainsboro on Fox’s House. Not a whole lot is known at this time about his role, other than he’ll be playing a neurosurgeon that acted as Foreman’s mentor and he’ll be locking horns with House. The episode, titled Nobody’s Fault, is scheduled to air in early 2012.

I had always thought of House as Foreman’s mentor, especially since he earned the nickname of House-Lite, but it makes sense »

'House' readies for a showdown with Jeffrey Wright

8 November 2011 12:07 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Jeffrey Wright will guest-star on "House" later this season, and while we don't know a whole lot about what brings him to Princeton Plainsboro, we're going to go ahead and say the acting in his episode will be top-notch.

Wright, an Emmy winner in 2004 for HBO's "Angels in America," will appear in an episode called "Nobody's Fault" that's scheduled to air in early 2012, Fox confirms to Zap2it. He'll play a neurosurgeon who has been Foreman's (Omar Epps) mentor and who will have a confrontation with House (Hugh Laurie).

Just what that confrontation is remains to be seen, but it must be a pretty big deal: The episode will be Wright's first role on a broadcast TV series since he did an arc on "Homicide" back in 1997.

"This is an example of great writing attracting great talent," executive producer and episode director Greg Yaitanes tells TVLine, which first reported Wright's casting. »

It's a different character, a different city, and a different department, but when Andre Braugher returns to NBC for his first appearance on Law & Order: Svu Wednesday (airing at 10/9c on NBC), there will be one very familiar face in his midst.

"It's kind of funny because Munch has been in both of these worlds, and here I am basically in Munch's world appearing as someone else, so there's a cute little meet and greet," Braugher tells TVGuide.com of his reunion with Homicide: Life on the Street co-star Richard Belzer.
