Ryan Reynolds and Allan Loeb's recently launched TV company DarkFire has made its first sale, and it was a quick one. The comedy project Guidance, from feature writer Tim Dowling (Just Go With It, Role Models), was just taken out by 20th TV where DarkFire has a first-look deal. In their first stop at Fox, the network took the show off the market and the rest of the pitch meetings were canceled.

Reynolds has been very involved in the project, which has received a put pilot commitment from Fox, including attending pitch meetings. He is executive producing with the rest of the DarkFire principals, Loeb, Steven Pearl and Jonathon Komack Martin. Dowling has ties to both Loeb and Reynolds.

So I have a list of five or so actors who are so charismatic, so effortlessly likeable, so charmingly cool, that I would watch any dross that they appear in. Sadly, most of those actors appear almost exclusively in dross but its always a pleasure regardless.
In my debut 10 Reasons To Love . . . article we covered my first cinematic man-crush – The Cuse. A man who’s been lucky enough (or clever enough) to land himself a bevy of interesting and varied roles. Well now we come to the second in my personal favourites and sadly it’s rather difficult to collect together 10 quality titles he’s been involved with, but I can safely say that if you’re willing to disband your pre-conceptions, throw out your regulating taste buds, and allow a little joy into your heart then you’ll find plenty to love in my top picks to represent the »

New superhero adaptation will 'laugh at itself', says Reynolds. But questions about Scarlett Johansson are no laughing matter
Ryan Reynolds has two small, single-colour tattoos on his lower left arm. One is a series of words engraved into the tender part of his wrist, the other some kind of military gun. I ask about them and his right hand moves quickly and instinctively to cover his left arm. He forces a laugh. "Oh, it says, 'You'll regret this one day, you idiot.'" And do you? He shrugs: "Yes."
Reynolds doesn't particularly appreciate questions that creep into his personal life, although when I later find out that the words simply say "Know Thyself" and that the gun is in fact an old naval cannon, I wonder if he's being slightly sensitive. Anyway, it's clear that the personal is private: his assistant has already issued a friendly warning that there are »

The 2011 upfronts (a week where each major TV network unveils its official Fall lineup) doesn't begin until next week, but Fox is getting an early start on its announcements. The network has revealed its plan to cancel five current shows: Lie to Me, Traffic Light, The Chicago Code, Breaking In, and Human Target. All of those shows were on the bubble, so it's no major surprise that they won't be returning next year. (In case you missed it, Fox has renewed Fringe, Glee, House, Bones, Family Guy and The Cleveland Show). As always, upfronts mean out with the old and in with the new, and the network has greenlit a handful of pilots to take the place of the shows that have been axed. To read more about those, just read more. The New Girl: Yet another comedy about twentysomethings, this one stars Zooey Deschanel as a teacher who moves in with three guys. »

Fillion, Elisabeth Moss, Henry Rollins, Jason Isaacs and Arnold Vosloo have all joined the voice cast of "Green Lantern: Emerald Knights", the latest direct-to-disc animated effort from the DC, Warner Premiere and Warner Bros. Animation reports Awn.
Fillion's visage was used in a popular "Green Lantern" fan trailer back in 2009 and many fans hoped he would score the role in the big-budget live action feature - a role that ultimately went to fellow Canadian and his former "Two Guys and a Girl" co-star Ryan Reynolds.
Moss will voice a young Gl recruit Arisia, Rollins voices Kilowog, Isaacs plays Sinestro and Vosloo plays Abin Sur. Rowdy Roddy Piper, »

Following in the tradition of "Batman: Gotham Knights," an animated short anthology tying into director Christopher Nolan's 2008 sequel "The Dark Knight," Warner Bros. is prepping a similar release to arrive alongside this summer's Ryan Reynolds-starring DC Comic adaptation, "Green Lantern."
Dubbed "Green Lantern: Emerald Knights," the home video release will arrives on June 7, 10 days before the release of the film. And today brings us our first official look at the anthology's version of Green Lantern Hal Jordan.
The "Emerald Knights" still (shown above) appeared on TV Guide alongside an image of Nathan Fillion, who voices the animated superhero, wearing a "Green Lantern" T-shirt. The voice cast also includes Elizabeth Moss, Jason Isaacs, Kelly Hu, Henry Rollins and "They Live" star "Rowdy" Roddy Piper.
Fillion will, of course, voice Hal Jordan, member of an intergalactic police force known as the Green Lantern Corps. Earth's space is where his jurisdiction lies, »

Nathan Fillion admitted in an interview with TV Guide that when he was offered the chance to voice Hal Jordan in the DVD movie Green Lantern: Emerald Knights he totally "geeked out". While the DVD is due to be released on June 7, only a week before the feature film starring Ryan Reynolds, Fillion does not feel any competition with Reynolds. In fact, the two are old friends, having gotten their starts on the same show, Two Guys and a Girl. Fillion reportedly is pleased to share the character with a friend.
Nathan Fillion can currently be seen in the series Castle, and has long been a favorite of fans of Firefly and Dr. Horrible. Green Lantern: Emerald Knights also includes the voice talents of Henry Rollins (of Black Flag and Sons of Anarchy), and Rowdy Roddy Piper (They Live). With these three on board, this might be the greatest cast ever assembled, »
