He's British, he's blonde, he'll have the signature trench coat and skinny tie, but whether Constantine in NBC's forthcoming TV pilot will be a chain-smoker is currently under negotiation with the network, according to executive producer David S Goyer.
I Am Rogue stole a few minutes to chat with Goyer, a man currently with more geek pies than fingers to stick in them, about the Constantine pilot, to be directed by The Descent and Game Of Thrones' Neil Marshall. The writer/director assured fans that the series, if it goes ahead, will stick more closely to the Hellblazer/Alan Moore creation than the Francis Lawrence-directed 2005 feature, a film he calls "interesting".
What do we know of the cast so far? Welsh actor Matt Ryan is in the lead, »
J.J. Abrams and Alfonso Cuarón are two of the most exciting and respected filmmakers working today, and their names are often seen as an undeniable sign of quality. Abrams is known for being behind some of the most unique and mythology-heavy television shows of the last decade (Alias, Lost, and Fringe, to name a few), while Cuarón is recognized for his incredible filmography and that nice golden Best Director Oscar that now sits on his shelf for Gravity. So, when it was announced that the duo would be teaming up to produce a show on NBC called Believe, fans of the filmmakers were, as expected, incredibly excited.
Granted, Abrams’ name is often attached to projects that the man himself has little to do with. Often, his production company Bad Robot does most of the legwork, while his name is merely used to sell audiences on the prospect of high-concept television shows. »

Believe, Season 1, Episode 1: “Pilot”
Written by Alfonso Cuarón and Marc Friedman
Directed by Alfonso Cuarón
Aired Monday at 10Pm (Et) before moving to Sundays at 9pm (Et) on NBC
As a producer, J.J. Abrams has been behind some of the more well-regarded series of the past decade, including Lost, Fringe, and Person of Interest. His involvement in a series alone brings a level of interest with it. The move of Alfonso Cuarón to American television, meanwhile, brings with it its own level of excitement. Fresh off an Oscar win for Best Director, Cuarón is well-respected in critical circles, and it will certainly be exciting to see what he does with television, as he returns to the medium for the first time since 1990. Believe, however, has the benefit of having both these individuals onboard, which gives the show a lot of potential. Aided by Cuarón, the »

The director of Gravity + the mastermind behind Lost, Star Trek, Fringe and, now, Star Wars = must-see TV? That's what we're asking you now that you've finally seen Alfonso Cuarón and J.J. Abrams' Believe, which finally premiered on Monday night. The Oscar-winning director's foray into TV is an ambitious drama for NBC, which centers on a very special 10-year-old girl named Bo (Johnny Sequoyah), who is being pursued by various groups looking to protect (or exploit) her supernatural powers. After checking out NBC's special preview of Believe, which makes its time-slot debut on Sunday at 9 p.m.), we're curious to know if you'll be returning next week to see »
Bates Motel Season 2 kicked off last week with the first of ten new episodes. If you want a taste of what goes down in tonight’s episode, we have a preview video, photos, and the official synopsis.

“Believe” is a great villain away from being a show I'd keep watching. Expectations couldn't be much higher for the NBC drama, premiering tonight. It comes from Oscar-winner Alfonso Cuaron, the brilliant mind behind “Gravity,” and J.J. Abrams, who co-created “Lost” and now rules both the “Star Trek” and “Star Wars” universes. Also read: J.J. Abrams and Alfonso Cuaron on Their Garbage First Drafts You know why people like “Star Wars” more than “Star Trek”? Because of Darth Vader. He was so ruthless, so composed, that you couldn't help but root for anyone going up against him. When the prequels made Vader. »

Honey, Scandal's kids are home! After three seasons, Gladiators will finally meet Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) and Mellie's (Bellamy Young) never-before-seen teen offspring in the ABC hit's March 27 episode, "Mama Said Knock You Out," which was actually directed by Goldwyn. So what brings Jerry and Karen, played by Lost alums Dylan Minnette and Madeline Carroll, to the wing of the White House that's actually featured on the show? Politics, of course. And we've got your exclusive first look at the older Fitzgerald children's big debut! (Side-note: who is taking care of Teddy?!) We managed to get our popcorn-dusted fingers on six pictures from Jerry and Karen's highly anticipated »
One theme that runs through much of J.J. Abrams' work as a writer and producer is family, from the ad hoc families of the college students on "Felicity" and the castaways of "Lost" to the father-daughter drama of "Alias," the husband-wife drama of "Undercovers" and the father-son drama of "Fringe."
Whatever situation the characters land in - and some of these shows have very fantastical premises -- the core of the story is people struggling with, or forming, close family bonds.
Expect more of the same when Abrams' latest project, "Believe," premieres Monday, March 10, on NBC. Created by Alfonso Cuaron ("Gravity") and Mark Friedman for Abrams' Bad Robot Productions -- with Jonas Pate and Hans Tobeason as the current showrunners -- it centers on 10-year-old Bo (Johnny Sequoyah), a precocious girl who was also born with a range of unusual powers, including levitation, telekinesis and precognition.
But she's not »
There was a period after the instant, explosive success of "Lost" where J.J. Abrams seemed to be creating every new drama on television. I say "seemed to" because in most of those cases, these shows — "Six Degrees," "What About Brian" and "Alcatraz," among others — were shows from Abrams' production company that traded on his name in their marketing, but didn't have him around as any kind of hands-on creative force. Every now and again he might actually co-write or direct one of the pilots with his name on it (for the short-lived "Undercovers," he did both), but Abrams often seems to be most useful simply using his muscle to get shows on the air, and then as a hook to use in marketing. Some of these shows last a while — "Fringe" went five seasons, and "Person of Interest" and "Revolution" are still around — while others have demonstrated the limits of »

After looking on enviously at Marvel and its multitude of projects for so long, it's quite an exciting time for DC fans at present. Not only is the Man of Steel sequel Batman vs. Superman gearing up for production, but there's also several TV pilots in the works. Last week, the Arrow spin-off The Flash began filming [see the first set photos and video here] and with cameras due to start rolling on Constantine, screenwriter and DC veteran David S. Goyer has shared a few comments about the NBC pilot during a chat with IAmRogue:
"We start shooting next week. Shooting the pilot. We only have four series regulars but we've cast them all now. I'm proud to say that Constantine is actually being played by a British guy, Matt Ryan, and he is going to have blond hair. [Whether he will smoke is] a tricky one on network TV. We're negotiating right now. He will have his signature trench coat and skinny tie. »

In a week that's seen Bryan Cranston (Godzilla, Breaking Bad) confirming that he was never approached about the role of Lex Luthor for Batman vs. Superman, director Zack Snyder and his wife and producing partner Deborah Snyder have spoken about leaks, with Deborah stating that: "Things get leaked so often these days, it's a shame because even casing announcements, or whatever, you're in the middle of a process and sometimes they're so off base -- and then it gets picked up by »

In practical terms, that’s meant shifting from everyone banded together in a communal (if usually fractious) home environment – seeking strength and safety in numbers – to what amounts to breaking up into condominiums.
Granted, AMC’s zombie hit and ABC’s island-bound drama have some key differences. Both deal with forging societies under harrowing circumstances, but the first is essentially a battle for survival without end, while the latter, imbued with some of those qualities, pivoted on a central mystery that both initially propelled the show and, eventually, consumed it.
Still, with “Dead” characters scattered in every direction – and the producers using this season to delve into individual back stories – the show has taken on a “Lost”-like feel, which has become possible thanks »

You see them all the time: the sort of actors that pop up, are amazing, and then disappear. Sometimes they get a bit part in a big picture; sometimes the Academy throws them a bone with a conciliatory Best Supporting nod.
More often than not, they toil in obscurity, until they’re either plucked out and made famous, land a sweet lead role on an AMC or HBO drama, or end up getting a Lifetime Achievement Award and a contrite handshake at the Oscars when they’re 70 years old.
Here, I’ve put together ten whom I consider to be among the most deserving, and underutilized, actors currently working. Maybe someday they’ll get the recognition they deserve.
10. John Hawkes
You’ve Seen Him In: “Deadwood” (2004-2006)
John Hawkes is one of the all-time “that guy”s; he’s been working consistently since the mid-80s in both film and television, »
