TV News Roundup: Tia Mowry, Ed Begley Jr. Set to Recur on CBS’ ‘Me, Myself & I’
In today’s roundup, “Me, Myself & I” adds recurring cast members, and Amazon announced the premiere date of “Lore.”

Casting

Ed Begley, Jr., and Tia Mowry are joining the cast of “Me, Myself & I” on a recurring basis in Season 1. Begley Jr. will play Governor Justin, the future version of Alex Riley’s stepbrother. In 1991, Justin (Christopher Richards) is constantly coming up with half-baked schemes that end in failure. Fifty-one years later, he’s the Governor of California. Mowry will play Wendy, the wife of Darryl (Jaleel White). Wendy relates to present-day Alex Riley’s (Bobby Moynihan) frustration over missing out on his daughter’s formative experiences. The series stars Moynihan in a comedy about the defining moments in one man’s life over three distinct periods — as a 14-year-old in 1991, at age 40 in present day, and at age 65 in 2042. “Me, Myself & I” premieres Monday, Sept. 25 at 9:30 p.m. on

Ian McShane on His First Movie Role and Breaking Into the Business

Ian McShane on His First Movie Role and Breaking Into the Business
Decades before “Lovejoy” and “Deadwood,” Ian McShane was first mentioned in Variety at age 19, when he was cast in “The Wild and the Willing” (later renamed “Young and Willing”), a film about university students. It starred Paul Rogers, Virginia Maskell, and five unknown actors, including McShane and his best friend from drama school, John Hurt. Hurt and McShane are friends to this day, after making their joint film and stage debuts together. A few months after that May 30, 1962, mention, Variety reported that McShane was recording singles from the movie. Perhaps the producers were seizing on the young actor’s brilliant voice, which would go on to filthily embody Al Swearengen in “Deadwood.” McShane will next be featured on Dr. Dre’s upcoming “Vital Signs” and Starz’s “American Gods.”

Tell me about your first two mentions in Variety. I was surprised to see that they’re two soundtrack mentions!

The Week in Star Wars – No opening crawl for Rogue One, Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens reviewed, Han Solo has “best Star Wars script” ever, James Cameron criticises The Force Awakens and more

It’s year two of The Week in Star Wars and we’ve got some big news for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, a review for Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens, news from Han Solo’s solo movie and more…

Kicking things off this week with Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and it was revealed by Kathleen Kennedy that some big changes are coming to the franchise – including the removal of the iconic opening crawl. Blasphemy, surely? “The crawl and some of those elements live so specifically within the ‘saga’ films that we are having a lot of discussion about what will define the [stand-alone] Star Wars Stories separate and apart from the saga films,” Kennedy told EW. “So we’re right in the middle of talking about that.” Not having the crawl would help separate the spin-offs from the main timeline, but – personally – it would feel like it’s missing something.

Hand Of God: a rare misfire from Amazon Studios

With Transparent, Bosch and more picking up plaudits, Amazon Studios' Hand Of God, feat. Ron Perlman, feels like a rare mis-step...

Amazon Studios have had a pretty good year. Comedy drama Transparent has become an awards darling, and holds the distinction of being the first series shown on a streaming video service to win the Golden Globe for Best Series. The recent release of other popular shows including Mozart In The Jungle and Bosch has cemented their place as a rival to Netflix and other streaming services currently producing their own content.

Unlike their rivals, Amazon Studios let the audience have a major role in choosing what content they produce – each year Amazon orders a series of pilots, and it is down to audience viewing figures as to what shows are picked up for a full series run. Sometimes this system works, and other times it

Recap: 'American Idol' Season 14 - Top 12 Performances and an Elimination
Sorry about the delay, kids. I had to be doing PaleyFest 2015 red carpet coverage for Starz's "Outlander," so I was talking about wedding nights and spankings and I missed doing my normal Eastern Time "American Idol" live-blog. And, in fact, I got home nearly 20 minutes into the Pacific Time airing of "Idol." So let's play a game and see how quickly I'm able to catch up with the live broadcast... Follow through for my full recap of Thursday's (March 12) Top 12 performances and the first solo elimination of the season. 8:00 p.m. (in show time, but 8:24 in my time) Fortunately, I remember last night, so I can trim a minute off here. 8:01 p.m. I missed last night's Top 12 Party because of timing. I'm just missing everything. 8:02 p.m. I can't fast-forward through Ryan Seacrest, because he's going to explain the show. Also, I can't miss the Jennifer Lopez Fashion Show.

Contest: Win a WolfCop Prize Pack, Including a Blu-ray Copy, Flask, Signed Poster, Comic Book & More

  • DailyDead
Imagine if high school student Scott Howard from Teen Wolf grew up, traded his letter jacket for a police uniform, and became a barely functioning alcoholic. Sound interesting? Then you'll likely dig Lowell Dean’s WolfCop, a creature feature with a wicked sense of humor that's packed with blood-soaked practical effects. Today, Image Entertainment unleashed WolfCop on Blu-ray and DVD, and to celebrate the release, they've provided us with two prize packs to give away to a couple of lucky Daily Dead readers. The grand prize contains a Blu-ray copy of the film, a flask (to go with the bottoms up spirit of Lou Garou), a signed poster featuring WolfCop sprawled out on his own human skin, and more.

"Officer Lou Garou isn’t the best cop in small-town Woodhaven – in fact, he’s probably the worst. He mostly just looks to avoid anything that could possibly interfere with his goal of getting wasted.

'WolfCop' Movie Review

WolfCop (2014)

Written and directed by Lowell Dean (13 Eerie) and starring Leo Fafard (Corner Gas: The Movie), Amy Matysio (Lawrence & Holloman), Jonathan Cherry (Final Destination 2), Aidan Devine (Outlander) and Sarah Lind (Severed).

This weekend has been dubbed “Werewolf Weekend”, as I have not one, but two movies to review, that just both happen to be werewolves. I wasn't sure what to expect, when I was asked if I wanted to review WolfCop. Any werewolf movie immediately has my attention, but this just had 'cheesy schlock film' written all over it. It just raised a whole lot of questions in my mind, and I wasn't certain I'd be able to give it a good review, let alone finish the thing.

However, WolfCop is a perfect example of why you shouldn't judge too harshly, before giving something a chance. Was it cheesy? Absolutely. Was it schlocky?

Looking back at the Wing Commander movie

  • Den of Geek
The movie adaptation of the hit Wing Commander videogame series came out in 1999. We find out whether time's been kind to it...

Feature

It’s easy to forget just how greatly visual effects shifted in the late 1990s. Techniques that had survived more-or-less unchanged since the dawn of cinema - scale models, matte paintings, stop-motion, to name a few - were suddenly joined by a new generation of jaw-dropping computer graphics.

Such groundbreaking movies as Tron, Young Sherlock Holmes and The Abyss paved the way, but the digital revolution pretty much exploded in the 1990s, starting with the eye-popping morph effects of Terminator 2: Judgment Day, the dinosaur shots in Jurassic Park and the CG-assisted bullet time of The Matrix in 1999.

In the midst of the CG revolution sweeping through cinemas by the close of the decade - as seen in The Matrix and the year’s other gargantuan release,

Now Myles is about to take her biggest leap into blockbuster territory by signing on to co-star in Transformers 4.Her role is being kept quiet, though The Wrap has ferreted out that she’ll be a scientist, and a major supporting part of a cast that already includes Mark Wahlberg, Jack Reynor, Nicola Peltz and recent addition Kelsey Grammer.Ehren Kruger is back writing this one, which is set after the devastating events of Dark Of The Moon with the Transformers largely gone from the planet.

British Lovely Sophia Myles Will Class Up Transformers 4

Looks like Michael Bay has decided to classed up his latest transforming robots from outer space movie with British actress Sophia Myles, an honest to goodness actress who was last seen on TV as the lead in the vampire show “Moonlight” and the Brit spy show “Mi-5″, though some may recall her from the Kate Beckinsale franchise “Underworld” and “Outlander” with Jim Caviezel. Myles joins new franchise leading man Mark Wahlberg on “Transformers 4″, which would find Wahlberg playing a military badass type who, along with his daughter (Nicola Peltz) and her boyfriend (Jack Reynor) will run afoul of human bad guy Kelsey Grammer and, of course, a slew of dangerous transforming robots from outer space out to enslave all of humanity and whatnot. It’s a good thing for them that the Autobots are still around to lend a hand. Myles’ role in the film is murky, but she

Ronald D. Moore Adapting Outlander

Ronald D. Moore Adapting Outlander
The last time that Diana Gabaldon’s bestselling fantasy romance book series Outlander flared on our development radar, it was back in 2008, when Randall Wallace was hired to bring it to the big screen for Essential Pictures. Or at least, that was the plan. That version seemingly vanished into the mire, but now Spartacus-producing cable network Starz has picked up the rights, with Battlestar Galactica’s Ronald D. Moore overseeing the writing.This should not be confused with either the Jim Caviezel-starring sci-fi film or the Sean Connery-starring sci-fi film. Outlander, the first novel, launched a seven-book series, which will add another tome next year. It focuses on Claire, a married World War II combat nurse sent back in time to the Scottish wilds circa 1743.Dropped into a world of adventure and mystery, she’s forced to marry Jamie, a romantic Scottish warrior, and finds herself torn between

Ronald D. Moore To Adapt 'Outlander' Novels To Series

Life after "Battlestar Galactica" may now continue for Ronald D. Moore. The acclaimed developer and executive producer of the signature Syfy series is set to take on a fantasy romance project based on the "Outlander" novel series from author Diana Gabaldon. It's a project that Sony Pictures Television expects to pitch to cable networks as early as this week, according to Deadline.com. "Outlander," which is not related to the 2008 film flop that starred Jim Caviezel, was first released in 1991 by Gabaldon, and involves an accidental time-travelling World War II combat nurse who lands in 18th century Scottish Highlands. The nurse, Claire, is forced to marry a warrior, which creates a love triangle that only science-fiction could tell. It was the first in a series of seven, which in ...

Trailer for Transit Starring Jim Caviezel

  • ReelzChannel
Just last week, it was announced that Joel Silver's Dark Castle Home Entertainment and Courtney Solomon's After Dark Films were joining forces on a new action movie franchise titled "After Dark Action," which kicks off with five movies to be shown theatrically as a "commercial film festival" before hitting VOD on May 11th. Now, the first trailer for the first of the After Dark Action movies, Transit, has been released online.

Written by Michael Gilvary (According to Greta) and directed by Antonio Negret (Seconds Apart), Transit stars Jim Caviezel (Outlander) as Nate Sidwell, an ex-con attempting to restore his relationship with his family by taking them on a camping trip only to become a pawn in a game of "cops and robbers" with $4 million — and his family's lives — on the line.

The top 25 cult film actors

They may not be household names like their A-list colleagues, but the actors on this list have appeared in some of our all-time favourite geek movies...

Some actors dabble in sci-fi; others dip their toe into fantasy; some may even make an appearance in the odd horror film - all before returning to the safety of the genres in which they feel more comfortable - perhaps a nice, award-chasing period drama, or a well-paid romantic comedy.

A-listers may see the geeky films that we on this site enjoy and celebrate as fun little side-projects, but there are actors out there who commit full-time to these types of movies. It is high time, therefore, that we credited these individuals with the recognition they deserve.

Besides the stipulation that, in order to be included, an actor had to still be alive and working today, there were no strict criteria that had to

Boardwalk Empire Renewed for Season 3 by HBO

HBO has announced the renewal of Boardwalk Empire, its Prohibition-era drama that follows the life of Atlantic City baron Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi). The show, which debuted last season with pilot directed by Martin Scorsese, has been an awards favorite, picking up multiple Emmys, SAG Awards, and Golden Globes for its well-received first season.

While telling the story of the power struggle over Atlantic City and Nucky's bid to hold on to control of the area, Boardwalk Empire has brought several historical figures into the fold (Al Capone, Arnold Rothstein, Lucky Luciano) as well as introduced intricate side plots featuring those in Nucky's orbit (Mrs. Schroeder, Jimmy, Chalky White), whether they want to be there or not. The show stars Buscemi (Fargo), Kelly Macdonald (No Country for Old Men), Michael Pitt (The Dreamers), and Michael Shannon (Revolutionary Road), and features the likes of Michael K. Williams (The Wire), Jack Huston
