The first trailer for Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was released a few days ago, and while it didn't give too much away it did leave us with one particularly pressing question to chew on: Who is J. August Richards playing?
Richards (probably best known as Gunn from Joss Whedon's Buffy spin-off Angel) hasn't been granted the status of a serious regular - at least, not yet - but he has been confirmed as a major guest star in the pilot. Given that he's clearly the only person in the trailer who is definitely manifesting superpowers, it's safe to assume that he'll be the subject of the S.H.I.E.L.D. team's first investigation. But further than that, there's also a good chance he'll be playing »
The rumors are true, Jack Bauer lives again. Any TV fan worth his or her salt has spotted headlines regarding the sudden return of hit Fox series, 24. The show’s star Kiefer Sutherland is primed and ready and today we learned, so is his former executive producer, David Fury.
This news highlights an evolutionary new wrinkle in TV history. Its called the limited series, and I’m seeing more and more of them in the news this year. Case in point, the Fox network has greenlighted the real-time drama, 24, as a limited series. It will continue Jack Bauer’s exploits, as first envisioned by longtime 24 showrunner Howard Gordon. Gordon is a household name now, by the by. He’s currently executive producer of Showtime’s Homeland.

Exclusive: Former 24 executive producer David Fury has closed a two-year overall deal with 20th Century Fox Television, the studio behind the Emmy-winning real-time Fox drama. Under the pact, Fury will become the first writer to join the upcoming Fox event series 24: Live Another Day, joining former 24 showrunner Howard Gordon, who is behind the new installment. Additionally, Fury is working on the high-profile FX drama project Tyrant, executive produced by Gordon and produced by 20th TV’s cable division Fox 21. “We are huge fans of David at this studio and are thrilled to welcome him back,” 20th TV chairman Dana Walden said. “Howard Gordon has a shortlist of writers whom he relies on enormously, and David is one of them. He was hugely important to 24 over the course of its run, and bringing him back for Live Another Day was quite frankly a no-brainer.” During his stint on 24, Wme-repped »

I don’t think there’s ever been a better time to be Joss Whedon. As a writer and creator of fictional worlds his TV series’ have changed the face of modern television, his films have made it to cinemas by defying the odds, and he is currently tasked with bringing Earth’s mightiest heroes to the silver screen… Again. This is not to mention the various comics and graphic novels he has penned over the years, and the fact that he filmed the forthcoming Much Ado About Nothing while he was on holiday. Apparently now when not making films, this guy makes films.
Whedon started out working on TV’s Rosanne as well as various Hollywood films, from uncredited script doctoring (Waterworld) to Oscar nominatied ensembles (Toy Story), and has since become the biggest name in Hollywood. Between the poor reaction to Alien Resurrection and Fox’s unrivaled ability »

And 10 years after the "Buffy" series finale, fans haven't gone anywhere.
"I'm incredibly proud of that show -- proud of everybody on it, of what we did ... You can't be prouder of that show. It still holds up in reruns and I'm blessed every day ... I've been pretty lucky," "Buffy" star Sarah Michelle Gellar told The Huffington Post at the CBS 2013 upfront in New York.

The show ended 10 years ago on May 20, 2003.

It’s been 10 years since Buffy and the Scooby Gang defeated The First, leaving Sunnydale nothing but an imploded crater. Buffy the Vampire Slayer — Joss Whedon’s cult series about the slayer and her ragtag team of friends — aired its final episode on May 20, 2003. In honor of this anniversary, here are 10 reasons why Buffy kicks ass.

Buffy Summers (Sarah Michele Gellar) knows how to stake vamps in style. From her midriff-baring tops to her platform heels, her late ’90s and early aughts’ wardrobe always adds flair to her night job.

"Buffy the Vampire Slayer" ended 10 years ago on May 20, 2003. Yes, it's been a decade since the Slayer and the Scoobies closed the Hellmouth in Sunnydale, California.
Series star Sarah Michelle Gellar is returning to TV opposite Robin Williams with "The Crazy Ones," a new comedy on CBS this fall. At the CBS 2013 upfront red carpet last week, Gellar was surprised by how much time has passed since she last wielded a wooden stake on TV.
"Wait, wait. Hold on. Really?" she replied when The Huffington Post told her the 10th anniversary of the "Buffy" finale was upon us. "Wow. God, you just blew my mind." Williams, who accompanied Gellar on the red carpet said, "It's kind of wonderful."
"It is," Gellar said. "I'm incredibly proud of that show -- proud of everybody on it, of what we did ... You can't be prouder of that show. It still holds up in »

Back in November, I self-published a book, "The Revolution Was Televised: The Cops, Crooks, Slingers and Slayers Who Changed TV Drama Forever." It was a look back at some of the best and/or most influential dramas of the last 15 years — "The Sopranos," "Oz," "The Wire," "Deadwood," "The Shield," "Lost," "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," "Battlestar Galactica," "24," "Mad Men" and "Breaking Bad" — told through both my critical eye and the voices of the men and women responsible for making them. Reaction to the book was so favorable (the New York Times' Michiko Kakutani named it one of her favorite »

Movies based on comic books, books based on movies, albums based on TV shows, TV shows based on movies based on TV shows… the possibilities only get more confusing from there. The world thrives on media that takes them out of their head for a few hours or a couple seasons, but with TV quickly overtaking film as the core entertainment market, a symbiosis between the two is increasingly necessary.
Trying to transfer a two-hour film into a multi-season moneymaking machine definitely has its list of perks, most importantly, an already fully-realized brand. The key to success here is to choose a film with a very strong story or character that can be taken in almost any direction.
We’ve seen a lot of great examples of this over the years: Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Friday Night Lights, Teen Wolf, Nikita, and Clueless. But we’ve also come across some »

Joss Whedon’s a pretty amazing writer when it comes to super-heroes. His too-brief stint on The Astonishing X-Men (and yes, I count 25 issues as too brief when the books were as fantastic as his were; try the motion-comic versions on various streaming services if you can’t get your hands on the books) almost a decade ago demonstrated showed that the guy was not only well-versed in comic book history, but he understood how to use that knowledge of characters and their respective histories and relationships to craft what is arguably the best X-Men run since Claremont/Byrne.
Then the man did the near-impossible by bringing Marvel’s The Avengers to the screen in a way that appealed to not only the geeks, but given its box office take, apparently athletes, basket cases, princesses and criminals too. Given the overwhelming number of moving parts in the script (like trying »

Joss Whedon’s Much Ado About Nothing has been on the festival circuit since September, but no other festival has made ado about the film quite like the Seattle International Film Festival, where Much Ado screened for a crowd of 3,000 on Thursday.
The Shakespeare adaptation – which Whedon shot in a 12-day stealth production at his house during what was supposed to be his post-Avengers vacation – kicked off the festival for its opening night at Seattle’s McCaw Hall in what became a record-breaking event shortly after ticket sales opened. The gala screening and party sold out in six hours on »

Due to his experience writing on beloved genre shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, and Lost, and the fact that his debut as a feature film director, The Cabin in the Woods, was completely awesome, geeks all over the world view Drew Goddard as the next great hope when it comes to their chances of getting more genre-based products that are actually smartly written and funny. Most horror movies and the like are honestly kind of vapid and cheesy, and are the sorts of things that get described as being guilty pleasures, but not Goddard’s work. He’s the sort of talent who makes one proud to be a fan of nerdy things. So for movie fans whose particular brand of escapist poison tends to come from the science fiction side of things, the news that he’s currently negotiating with Fox to write and direct a movie about a man stranded in space should »

Drew Goddard, the longtime writer of such TV classics like Buffy, Angel, Alias, burst onto the directorial scene with last year’s Cabin In The Woods. It appears he has chosen his next project: The Martian, an ebook by Andy Weir.
The ebook is unavailable right now, as Random House is bringing out a print version, but the premise is pretty simple: an astronaut is left stranded on Mars, where excitement ensues. I can’t say it makes me Too excited about the next movie, but Goddard has a long leash with me right now.
The film is coming from Fox, with Simon Kinberg attached to produce alongside Aditya Sood. »
- Andy Greene
The project is based off a 2012 e-book by author Andy Weir, which centers on an astronaut who becomes stranded on Mars, and must find some way to make it back to Earth. The story is said to be a cross between Apollo 13 and Cast Away. Insiders also claim that the story is much different from Gravity, director Alfonso Cuarón's upcoming thriller starring Sandra Bullock as an astronaut lost in space.
Drew Goddard also wrote the screenplay for Steven Spielberg's Robopocalypse, which was put on indefinite hold back in January. His other writing credits include Cloverfield, and episodes of hit TV shows such as Lost, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, »
