Fourth Still From The Conjuring Haunts the Internet

12 December 2012 3:17 PM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Another still from James Wan's upcoming The Conjuring has made its way into our inbox, and rather than keep it there contained where it cannot harm anyone, we've decided to set it free into the ether. Dig it!

Synopsis

Before there was Amityville, there was Harrisville. Based on a true story described in the book House of Darkness, House of Light: The True Story by Andrea Perron, The Conjuring tells the horrifying tale of how world renowned paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren were called upon to help a family terrorized by a dark presence in a secluded farmhouse. Forced to confront a powerful demonic entity, the Warrens find themselves caught in the most terrifying case of their lives.

From New Line Cinema comes a feature film drawn from the case files of married demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren. The Conjuring stars Academy Award nominee Vera Farmiga (Up in the Air, »

The Top 10 Actors Who Should Return To TV

11 September 2012 10:43 PM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Rachel Bennett

Television Editor & Columnist

***

Movies used to be gold standard for actors, with George Clooney, Tom Hanks and Leonardo DiCaprio leaving the small screen for the big to achieve great professional and financial success.

However, times are changing, and many actors who left TV to work in movies are coming back, including Eddie Murphy, Robin Williams and Michael J. Fox. Due to the addition of cable and subscription-based original programming, better roles are being created that will give actors a chance for the recognition, awards and job security that movies no longer  provide. Just look at Claire Danes, who returned to TV to star in Showtime’s Homeland, for which she’s nominated for an Emmy.

There are several actors who should return to TV, but not all of them will. Take a look at the top 10 TV stars who’ve left TV but should return:

The Walking Dead Showrunner Glen Mazzara Talks “The Governor,” the Prison, Michonne and More

29 June 2012 5:01 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

There have been quite a few spoilery news tidbits concerning AMC's The Walking Dead lately, but the one safe thing we can talk about right up front is the inclusion of the villainous Governor, played in the upcoming season by David Morrisey (The Reaping). As  he plays the main antagonist (of the non-shambling variety) to Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and the gang, it's probably a good thing to know where the third season of The Walking Dead is going to take us as far as the Governor is concerned.  Showrunner Glen Mazzara recently addressed that question while shooting on location.  I've done my best to keep this spoiler-free, but all bets are off after you hit the jump. In an interview with The Wrap, Mazzara dished on the third season's ending, how it wouldn't end and what kind of story arc we can expect to see for the Governor.  As you »

Hasselhoff: The Night Stalker - Foywonder Salutes Baywatch Nights Season 2

1 April 2012 1:49 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

"Hasselhoff: The Night Stalker" I dubbed “Baywatch Nights” when it aired its fabulously misguided second (and final) season. The “Baywatch” spin-off with lifeguard David Hasselhoff moonlighting as a Pi abruptly transformed into an “X-Files” wannabe with him battling the paranormal.

The results, as you are about to see, were pure trainwreck TV.

Believe it or not, there really was a time when “Baywatch” was the most watched television program in the entire world. Pamela Anderson’s (ahem) buoyancy transcended language barriers worldwide. The primary reason for the show’s global success was obvious to every red-blooded male except perhaps for producer/star David Hasselhoff. I once heard him in an interview try to claim it was the show’s storytelling that kept people coming back week after week and not because internet porn was still a few years away from being at everyone’s fingertips. Yeah, the storylines... That’s »

Video: David Morrissey talks Joining The Walking Dead as The Governor

31 March 2012 1:19 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Last month, it was officially announced that David Morrissey had been cast as The Governor in The Walking Dead Season 3. Fans of Doctor Who and those that watch British television regularly should instantly recognize Morrissey, but for those who are unfamiliar with him, we have a recent video spot where he talks about joining the cast and knowing Andrew Lincoln.

“…David Morrissey has been cast in the role of The Governor in the networks’ critically acclaimed hit series, ‘The Walking Dead.’ The Governor, a character from Robert Kirkman’s graphic novel, is the leader of Woodbury, a small settlement of survivors, and becomes the chief antagonist for Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and his group.

The Governor will appear in ‘The Walking Dead’ season three, a 16-episode order from AMC, which begins production this spring in Atlanta.

A BAFTA Award nominee, Morrissey has appeared in many acclaimed British series including ‘State of Play, »

New *Full* ‘Prometheus’ Trailer Offers More Answers, More Questions And a Reason to Live Until June 8th

17 March 2012 11:44 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Just yesterday we were blessed with a new teaser for Ridley Scott’s upcoming film Prometheus, and it was a glorious event. But that glimpse clocked in at just barely over a minute. Today we get a fresh trailer straight from its premiere at WonderCon where Scott joined Charlize Theron, Michael Fassbender and Damon Lindelof in what was most likely the sexiest panel to grace a WonderCon stage since Joel Silver and Hilary Swank previewed The Reaping in 2007. They didn’t take any relevant questions and offered little in the way of more information, but per EW Scott did tease a little something. “If we’re lucky, there will be a second part of this. The film does leave you with some nice big open questions.” Have a seat. Prepare to smile uncontrollably. And check out the new trailer below. Did you see that man-sized space jockey-looking son of a bitch in the recliner breathing at the »

Carrie Diaries Adds a Butler for AnnaSophia Robb

6 March 2012 7:26 AM, PST | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

We’ve been following the development of the brand new CW pilot, The Carrie Diaries. You already know it is a prequel series to Sex and the City, but do you know who just run the male lead role? We do, and lucky for you, we’re in a sharing mood.

The young actor’s name is Austin Butler and you may have spied the blond on Lifetime’s The Bling Ring. According to Deadline the young Carrie Bradshaw will be acted by AnnaSophia Robb of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Bridge to Terabithia, The Reaping and Soul Surfer.

He may not be Mr. Big, but Austin Butler will enter Carrie’s 80′s era High School kind of the same way Edward Cullen enters the cafeteria at Forks High. He’s going to draw attention. His character’s name is Sebastian Kydd. That doesn’t sound made up at all, »

Comic Book Bites: David Morrissey cast in The Walking Dead, William Fichtner joins The Lone Ranger

27 February 2012 9:21 AM, PST | The Geek Files | See recent The Geek Files news »

Cable network AMC has confirmed reports that David Morrissey (above) is to play the Governor in the third season of The Walking Dead.

It's Morrissey's American TV debut and will see him join fellow British actor Andrew Lincoln, who recently spoke about how he has adapted to the demands of life in the USA and maintaining a convincing accent. Morrissey's previous appearances include The Reaping, Basic Instinct 2, Centurion and Doctor Who.

The Governor is a twisted antagonist who serves as the leader of a small settlement called Woodbury and his inclusion is a big hint that the zombie show is moving at a faster pace than the comic book on which it's based. AMC also revealed that the next season is to have an extended run of 16 episodes.

There's also casting news from Disney, with William Fichtner (right) riding onto the set of The Lone Ranger to play the new bad guy, »

Governor cast for The Walking Dead

25 February 2012 12:22 PM, PST | Corona's Coming Attractions | See recent Corona's Coming Attractions news »

Readers of The Walking Dead comic book have been expecting this news: The Governor has been cast on the Walking Dead TV series. He'll be played by British actor David Morrissey and debut in season three of the show.

The Governor is to The Walking Dead comic book series what Khan is to Star Trek. Sadistic, cruel, drunk with power and the most deadly adversary that Rick Grimes and his band of Atlanta survivors have faced, The Governor is ruler of his walled-off world. He does whatever is necessary to keep himself and his group of followers safe from the zombie horde. Some of the things that The Governor does in The Walking Dead are far more shocking than the acts of violence the mindless undead commit.

Morrissey has a long list of acting credits dating back to 1993, but he's better known to British viewers. His better known American roles »

Breaking News: The Walking Dead Casts The Governor

The executive producers of AMC’s The Walking Dead have always been a bit cagey about if and when they would be including the comic series character known as “The Governor.” Today, however, AMC announced that The Governor will be a part of season 3, and the person to play him will be brilliant British actor David Morrissey, best known to Doctor Who fans as the guest star of the Christmas special “The Next Doctor.” Here are the details:

Meet The Governor of AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead’

24 February 2012 4:44 PM, PST | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

At long last and after months of rumors and speculation, the iconic character known as ‘The Governor’ has been cast.  Since AMC first began an adaptation of Robert Kirkman’s zombie series The Walking Dead in 2010, fans have been anxious to see not only when the character will appear but who will be portraying the vicious leader who rules a group of civilians with an iron fist (and later an eye patch).  AMC has now announced that David Morrissey will play the upcoming villain in Season 3 of the hit show.

I come from the standpoint of being a reader of the comics and a fan of the show.  Without giving away much about the character, I will say that ‘The Governor’ is an interesting character for a lot of reasons.  Yes, he’s cruel, violent, dangerous, and badass – all of the attributes of a great villain.  However he also represents »

David Morrissey Cast As The Governor in Season 3 of AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead’

24 February 2012 4:07 PM, PST | BuzzFocus.com | See recent BuzzFocus.com news »

2012 is an election year and AMC’s The Walking Dead has found its Governor. David Morrissey has been cast as the major recurring role of The Governor for Season 3. Since we do not know how he will be written into the series, we cannot label him immediately as a villain, but he is one of the major villains of comics. It’s best not to assume anything with this TV series. This also means that Michael Rooker, who plays Merle, will once and for all Not be the Governor as so many have surmised after his story played out in Season 1.

Morrissey is a well-known TV actor in England, appearing in several British series including: Blackpool (2004), State of Play (2003), and The Meadowlands (2007). He can also be seen in starring roles in the feature films, The Reaping (2007), The Other Boleyn Girl (2008), Centurion (2010), Hilarie and Jackie (1998), The Water Horse (2007) and Blitz (2011).

The Walking Dead Casts David Morrissey in 'Governing' New Season 3 Role

Brace yourselves, fans of The Walking Dead!  Rick Grimes and his merry band of apocalyptic survivors are about to be…governed.  Or, at least that’s how someone unfamiliar to The Walking Dead comics might see it!

AMC just dropped a major announcement that British actor David Morrissey has been cast to join The Walking Dead’s third season in the role of “The Governor,” which fans of the Image comics know to be a villainous menace that terrorizes Rick Grimes and the other survivors through a major arc.  The Governor is the leader of another group of survivors located in Woodbury, who becomes the chief antagonist for Rick and the others as they set up shop in a nearby prison, at least in the comics.

According to the announcement, The Governor will appear in the start of The Walking Dead »

The Walking Dead Season 3 Gets David Morrissey as the Governor

24 February 2012 3:26 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this year, we chatted with horror legend Tom Savini, who revealed that he was actively campaigning for the role of The Governor on The Walking Dead Season 3. AMC wanted Academy Award-nominate actor John Hawkes, who declined the role.

It looks as though Tom Savini wasn't their ideal replacement. They have now officially cast the coveted and all-important role of The Governor, announcing today that David Morrissey (best known in the states for his roles in movies such as Blitz and Centurion) has won the part.

Here is the official press release:

AMC announced today that David Morrissey has been cast in the role of The Governor in the networks' critically acclaimed hit series, The Walking Dead. The Governor, a character from Robert Kirkman 's graphic novel, is the leader of Woodbury, a small settlement of survivors, and becomes the chief antagonist for Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and his group. »

Oscar night is supposed to be the night where dreams come true and careers are made, but for many actors over the years, it has marked the beginning of a downward trend. Among the list of past winners, you'll find some of Hollywood's most timeless faces. But you'll also find some names that have faded since their night of Oscar glory.

Through no fault of their own, some actors have struggled to escape from under the weight of an Academy Award win — especially if it came early in their career. Despite their best efforts, they have yet to repeat their previous levels of success and live up to the title "Academy Award winner."

Here are some of the steepest falls for Oscar winners in recent years: »
