Project has been in development since early this year with South African director Darrell Roodt attached to helm and David Harewood on board to play the lead. Roodt is no longer attached and producers have opted to read other actors for the role.
Robeson, born in 1898, was a singer, actor and orator from the 1920s through the 1950s best known for his acting in “Othello” and his singing of “Ol’ Man River.” Robeson’s political activism brought him to the attention of Sen. Joseph McCarthy, leading to the revocation of his passport for eight years despite his contributions as an entertainer to the Allied forces during WWII.

Thanks to his Emmy-winning antics on Boston Legal and his portrayal of the ultimate corporate survivor and parasite (Robert California) on The Office, James Spader’s electric performance on The Blacklist can’t be described as “surprising,” but it has been well-received and it appears to be one of the major draws for the serialized crime thriller.
How successful has The Blacklist been for NBC? The word “behemoth” comes to mind, with the show standing as the best-rated new broadcast drama this season (among the key adults 18-49 demo), while also outdrawing all other broadcast dramas (new or not) in that same demo. With that kind of performance, it’s no wonder that the network has decided to give the Jon Bokenkamp-produced show a gift in return – a bit of security ...

The Good Wife, Season 5, Episode 9, “Whack-a-Mole”
Written by Nichelle Tramble Spellman
Directed by Kevin Hooks
Airs Sundays at 9pm Est on CBS
Ah, The Good Wife. You’re always good for a thinly veiled riff on a relevant piece of internet culture, aren’t you? “Whack-a-Mole” focuses on Scabbit, a website that is distinctly not Reddit (just kidding. It totally is.) which the FBI uses to crowd source an investigation of a terrorist attack, leading them to suspect Alicia’s kindly professor, who is writing a book on jihad, but not that kind of jihad.
The show’s interest in social media and internet culture occasionally leads to it being silly and obtuse in a vain attempt to be hip and relevant, but it returns to these issues again and again for a reason. Say what you will about it, but The Good Wife is incredibly skilled at keeping tabs »

Most would agree, Jj Abrams has had a successful career which has gone from strength to strength. Undoubtedly, Star Wars now offers an opportunity for him to reach a creative zenith, but represents also his largest risk. His stylistic choices may not be to everyone’s tastes and he himself admits that there are elements over which he has an obsession (lens flares & secrecy) but these are still a matter of personal taste (I’m ambivalent over the former, and truly appreciate the latter). All that aside, outside his burgeoning film directing career, as an executive producer Abrams has been responsible for an incredible amount of television in a very small space of time. »
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Season 1, Episode 7, “The Hub”
Directed by Bobby Roth
Airs Tuesday at 8 Pm Et on ABC
In “The Hub”, Agent Coulson and the team meet their first long-term adversary, and this character is far more dangerous than anything they have faced because technically, they are all on the same side. Saffron Burrows joins the cast as Victoria Hand, a S.H.I.E.L.D. bureaucrat who lives by the motto, “Trust the system.” She taps Coulson’s team, specifically Grant and Fitz, for a mission to sneak into a separatist’s base and disarm a weapon. As Coulson reassures everyone to trust her and S.H.I.E.L.D., however, she is keeping a big secret about Grant and Fitz’s mission.
“The Hub” continues the difficult balancing act of setting up two major story arcs for season 1 and probably season 2 while still keeping the audience engaged and unfortunately, »

1997's giant snake feature "Anaconda" was a straight up creature feature about a "National Geographic" film crew taken hostage by an insane Paraguayan hunter who is out to capture the world's largest snake. Jennifer Lopez, Jon Voight, Ice Cube, Own Wilson, Eric Stoltz, and Danny Trejo starred.
"Boston Legal" creator David E. Kelly wrote 1999's "Lake Placid" about a giant crocodile terrorising an idyllic lake in the United States. The cast included Bridget Fonda, Bill Pullman, Oliver Platt, Brendan Gleeson, Mariska Hargitay and a foul-mouthed Betty White.
Both turned out to be solid little earners from relatively tight budgets. As a result, increasingly silly and lesser seen sequels were greenlit - both franchises ending up with four entires, almost all of which went direct to disc.
Now, rights to both franchises have ended up at »

The good news continues to roll out for the upcoming Almost Human on Fox. It hadn’t been made completely clear whether the “two night series premiere” would be the pilot on that Sunday and a rebroadcast of the pilot on Monday, or if Monday would be an episode 2. Rejoice, fans, it’s episode 2.

With his writing partner Jeannie Roshar, Gary Anthony Williams (known for providing the voice of Uncle Ruckus on The Boondocks, for his work on Weeds and Boston Legal, and much more) has sold an interracial romantic comedy feature pitch to Lionsgate, titled I Own You. Centered on the peaks and valleys of an interracial couple, I Own You is said to be based on a 2008 short film of the same name that the duo also wrote and starred, with Anthony Williams directing. Whether Williams will also direct this feature film adaptation of the short, remains to be see. Currently, there's no director attached. It's not even a definite that Williams and »

“Almost Human” just added another human in the form of actor John Larroquette.

“What Spader’s Reddington demonstrates is a dark, glittering intelligence and that makes him a fascinating character,” wrote my pal and fellow columnist John Ostrander here on ComicMix yesterday, discussing James Spader’s work as the protagonist (antagonist?) on NBC’s The Blacklist (Mondays at 10 Pm Edt USA).
I read John’s column after reading A House Divided: Extremism And The Lessons Of History by Sean Wilentz and its accompanying article, Inside The Gop’s Suicide Machine by Tom Dickinson in the National Affairs section of the current Rolling Stone Magazine.
Over the last decade, my imagination has sometimes taken me to sinister places when I have thought about the future of the United States of America. Since George W. Bush became President through the manipulation of the vote in Florida and the engineering of his election to office by the Supreme Court, it has seemed not unbelievable to me that a cabal, »

If you’ve been tuning in to Hawaii Five-0 Season 4, you know that a familiar TV face is now in the mix.
Chi McBride - best known for roles on Pushing Daisies, Human Target and last season’s Golden Boy - has joined the show as Captain Lou Grover, who, from the start, does not take kindly to the antics of Five-0 and its leader, Steve McGarrett.
TV Fanatic was on location on the island of Oahu recently and sat down with the cheery McBride – in between shooting scenes involving some pretty intense gunfire – to talk about his new gig on the series and his character’s history with Hawaii Five-0.
TV Fanatic: So Grover is a character from the original series…

Revolving around three interrelated families living in Los Angeles, Modern Family is a witty, feel-good and refreshingly original take on 21st Century family life, with arguably television’s finest ensemble cast. Starring Ed O’Neill (Married with Children), Julie Bowen (Boston Legal), Ty Burrell (The Incredible Hulk), Eric Stonestreet (Bad Teacher) and Sofia Vergara (Four Brothers), the show spotlights three sprawling families held together by recently re-married patriarch Jay Pritchett (Ed O’Neill), who introduced his hot, young, feisty wife Gloria (Vergara) to the frenzied family dynamics. Together the three families offer a candid and repeatedly hilarious insight into the sometimes warm, sometimes twisted embrace of the modern family.
Season 4 opens with a bang when Gloria announces she is pregnant. As expected, this news causes a wave of reaction throughout the family, »
