AMC’s The Walking Dead companion series just locked a director for the pilot episode and he’s an Academy Award winner! Adam Davidson snagged the Oscar for Best Live Action Short Film back in 1991 for The Lunch Date and, ever since, he’s been racking up TV credits. He’s worked on a slew of shows including Lost, Deadwood, Dexter, True Blood, Fringe, Big Love, Masters of Sex and so many more. Davidson is expected to start shooting his Walking Dead companion series episode late this year. Hit the jump for more on the show and Davidson. It’s times like this that I wish I had paid closer attention to who’s directing what episode of my favorite TV shows, but sadly, I can’t remember what went down in Davidson’s episodes of Friday Night Lights, Hell on Wheels or Six Feet Under. However, he did just »

Misty Upham found dead in Seattle suburb (photo: Misty Upham and Juliette Lewis) Actress Misty Upham, who had gone missing since October 6, 2014, was found dead on Thursday, October 16, in a wooded area along the White River in suburban Seattle. The cause and time of death remain unclear. Best known for her roles in Frozen River, which earned her an Independent Spirit Award nomination, and August: Osage County, Upham was 32. According to a statement her father, Charles Upham, sent to media outlets, Misty Upham was last seen on October 5, walking from her sister's apartment in Muckleshoot, Washington. Her father added that she suffered from bipolar disorder and had bouts of depression and anxiety — she had gone missing in the past — but said he didn't believe she was suicidal. "The truth is Misty is not stressed over money or career. Her career is going great," he wrote last Sunday, October 12. "As her »

After a body was found in Auburn, Washington yesterday—eight days after actress Misty Upham was reported missing—a family spokeswoman has confirmed the body to be that of the 32-year-old actress. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the body was found by Upham's family and friends during a search of the area. Local filmmaker Tracy Rector, a friend of Upham's, said that the Auburn Police Department was less than helpful in the search process: "The family wants everyone to know that the Auburn police did not help with this situation at all," she told THR.

Charles Upham, father of actress Missy Upham who has not been seen in days, released a statement denying recent claims about his daughter.
Police confirmed yesterday that actress Misty Upham, most recently seen in the film August: Osage County, has been missing for days. Her parents have taken to the internet in an attempt to raise awareness of their missing daughter, and for information as to her whereabouts.
According to authorities, "Officers responded to her apartment where she lives with her parents on Sunday for a suicidal call… When our officers got there, she had already packed up some belongings and left the apartment, so the officers were not able to contact or find her."
Other media outlets, such as People, claim that Upham was "stressed over money" and with her career.
Today, Upham's father, Charles Upham, released a statement on Facebook reading, in part:
After the huge success of "Breaking Bad," many were very interested in seeing which direction Aaron Paul would take his career. His big studio film was "Need For Speed," but before that smash-em-up film played there was a smaller, more intimate tale of a father trying to do right by his young, rebellious son.
Kat Candler's "Hellion" played well at Sundance, and this stark independent film is now making its way to home video this month. Last January, Moviefone Canada got to speak with Paul about this project, and we were joined by Candler as well as the young lead, Josh Wiggins.
Much of the conversation surrounded discussion of Wiggins, an actor Aaron was almost evangelical about in his enthusiasm.
Moviefone Canada: Mr. Paul, you've been a huge proponent of Josh's work -- what does Josh's performance mean to you, and what did you see in his performance that »

Victoria, BC. It's early May on Vancouver Island and rain has temporarily trapped Kevin Rankin in a makeshift press tent just inland at Island View Beach Regional Park. With several of his co-stars in rotation being interviewed, Rankin ends up sitting next to the heat lamp, which means sitting next to me for what turns out to be an in-depth conversation about both his work on Fox's "Broadchurch" and his eclectic and varied career. With his turns as rascally and resilient Herc on "Friday Night Lights" and gloriously unprepared-for-authority Ra Lucien on "Undeclared," Rankin has the rare honor of having been part of multiple shows that earned the Firewall & Iceberg Podcast Summer ReWatch treatment. [Three, if you include "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," though his one-episode appearance came after the season featured in the podcast.] Rankin has also had runs on shows including "Breaking Bad," "Six Feet Under," "Big Love" and "Justified," when he wasn't terrorizing the President in "White House Down" or assisting Matthew McConaughey to his Oscar in "Dallas Buyers Club. »

Forget last years custardgate Wednesdays episode of The Great British Bake Off must rank as one of the most controversial ever. Bearded contestant Iain Watters was sent home for failing to present a pudding after he dumped his baked alaska in the bin.
At the end of the day Mary & I need something to judge, it's not about melted ice cream but about what's presented to Us... #bingate

Contestant Iain Watters was eliminated on tonight's episode (August 27) amid allegations that rival Diana Beard sabotaged his Baked Alaska dish.
Beard was shown taking Iain's ice cream out of the freezer, potentially leading to his Baked Alaska becoming a muddled mess that caused his elimination by Hollywood and Mary Berry.
This week's result led to a flurry of viewer complaints on social media, with Hollywood eventually responding on his official Twitter account.
"At the end of the day Mary & I need something to judge, it's not about melted ice cream but about what's presented to Us... #bingat… I'm glad Mary's not on twitter this would upset her.. #enoughnow," Hollywood wrote.
Perkins added that she remains unconvinced that there was any sabotage at all, despite the hashtags '#BinGate' and '#DirtyDiana' trending on Twitter. »
Beverly Center: Flynn’s Final Scandal Makes for Interesting Cinematic Footnote
It’s been eight years since Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland’s 2006 sophomore film, Quinceanera swept up the Audience and Grand Jury Prize awards at the Sundance Film Festival. The directing duo is back with a re-ignition of an old Hollywood scandal in The Last of Robin Hood, a glance at the final years of Errol Flynn and his romantic entanglement with a female minor. While the material is unerringly fascinating and features a trio of notable names, it’s a rendition that feels a bit too polished and hardly as seedy as it should be. It seems attempts have been made to assuage unnecessary heartache to the relatives of the ingénue at the center of this strange ménage-a-trois, and the resulting film seems a heavily polished reenactment too apprehensive to really get its hands dirty. Yet, the »
