Some of us here at Thn often get our panties in a pickle when we see some of the talentless goons gracing our small and silver screens. We don’t want to name and shame (perhaps that could be a follow-up feature), but for now we’re taking a look at some of our favourite unsung heroes and heroines – those who perhaps have been unlucky with high-profile projects, and a few supporting actors who may not have had the chance to shine as a major lead in a big-budget blockbuster or dramatic epic.
Now before we start, we want to state that all these actors make a steady living working in television and/or film still, and some have for many years. We are not saying they’re deadbeats living on the streets unable to find work – they’re a successful bunch in there own niche way. But these are »

Dread Central has found a one sheet and a trailer for the upcoming film, which we now share with you.

Sy-Fy‘s Being Human made its second season debut last week, recussetating the nerd tv quotient in my life exponentially. Yes, I watch True Blood, and as you now know all-too-well, if it’s on PBS or BBC America, I’m on board. But there isn’t much I watch that I’m wholeheartedly embarassed to admit to, with the exception of Being Human. Well, Fsr readers, I’m coming clean. Yep, I’m a SyFy watcher, and semi-proud. Being Human, for those of you not in the know, is the story of three unlikely roommates, a vampire, a werewolf, and a ghost. I mean, totally believable, right? Of course not, but if you’re looking for believable TV, then stick to the Law and Order franchise. It’s across-the-pond counterpart appealed to me after popping up in my “recommended for you” Netflix queue so often that I finally succumbed, plowing »
