20th Century Fox Picks Up Men Who Kill For Michael B. Jordan

17 April 2014 1:35 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Hoping to continue working with their Fantastic Four/Chronicle star, Michael B. Jordan, 20th Century Fox has picked up a pitch by T.J. Fixman for a star vehicle titled Men Who Kill. Said to be an “international Bad Boys,” the project will be produced by Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter, with Kenny Goodman exec producing.

We won’t blame you if you’re unfamiliar with Jordan. Although he’s been around for a while now, having had television roles on shows like The Wire, Parenthood and Friday Night Lights, he didn’t really break out until 2012′s Chronicle. Even then, it took another full year for him to really put his name on the map, which he was able to do thanks to his powerful performance in Fruitvale Station.

Now, he’s an extremely hot commodity in Hollywood and is being groomed to become the industry’s next bankable leading man. »

'Friday Night Lights' showrunner Jason Katims does a deep dive on the series finale

17 April 2014 12:04 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

It’s not easy to stick the landing when it comes to series finales. Just ask fans of Dexter and How I Met Your Mother, who continue to debate the merits of those final hours. Which is why it is that much more remarkable when a show receives universal acclaim for its last chapter. Friday Night Lights is one of those shows. The saga of Eric and Tami Taylor (played to perfection by Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton) and the Dillon Panthers and East Dillon Lions ended on Feb. 9, 2011 when DirecTV aired the final episode. Then it ended again when »

Channing Tatum revealed in a recent interview at the MTV Movie Awards that he has met with X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner about playing the mutant Gambit in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse. Though nothing is official just yet, the actor said that he would “die” to play the role.

“I met with Lauren Shuler Donner. And I would love it. Gambit is really the only X-Man I’ve ever loved. I mean I’ve loved them all, they’re all great, but I guess from being down south – my dad’s from Louisiana, I’m from Mississippi, Alabama, Florida – I don’t know. I just related to him. I hope it [comes together]. You never know it’s a weird industry. If the stars align, I would die to play it. I’m already working on the accent. It’s crappy at the moment.”

Watch: Justin Theroux Searches for Answers in HBO’s ‘The Leftovers’ Teaser

14 April 2014 12:10 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A bright blue ribbon tied to a post and words from Walt Whitman’s poetry serve as an ominous start to the teaser for HBO’s new drama series “The Leftovers.”

Based on the bestselling novel by Tom Perrotta, the series follows police chief and father of two Kevin Garvey (played by Justin Theroux) as he tries to maintain normalcy in a world in which two percent of the population has disappeared without explanation.

While the majority of the teaser is rather calm, the intensity amps up in the final seconds, giving viewers the sense that they should expect the unexpected in a world where people vanish without a trace.

The show, exec produced by ‘Lost’ co-creator Damon Lindelof along with Perrotta and ‘Friday Night Lights’ exec producers Peter Berg and Sarah Aubrey, also stars Amy BrennemanChristopher EcclestonLiv Tyler, and Ann Dowd. Lindelof, no stranger to shows about mysterious disappearances, »

'Parenthood': Matt Lauria previews Ryan's emotional return (and a Luke Cafferty appearance?)

10 April 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

If the previews for this week’s penultimate episode of Parenthood tell us anything, it’s that we’re going to need even more tissues than normal. And a key factor in that tear-jerking equation is, of course, the return of fan favorite (and love of Amber’s life) Ryan.

Last we saw Ryan, he was re-enlisting after having come to the realization that he is and always will be a soldier. And as an effect of that decision, he and Amber broke off their engagement. But now, after weeks of Amber drowning her sorrows in ice cream and pot, »

A&E Renews Bates Motel For a Third Season

7 April 2014 2:33 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Halfway through its second season, Bates Motel has been renewed by A&E for another ten episode run.  The engrossing and underrated drama was developed by Carlton Cuse (Lost) and Kerry Ehrin (Friday Night Lights), and acts as a prequel of sorts to the 1960 Alfred Hitchcock film Psycho. The series' greatest strength has been creating a world that leads up to, but isn't dependent, on the story on which it is partially based.  Actually, scratch that -- the series' greatest strength is the Emmy-nominated Vera Farmiga, who plays Norma Bates.  Farmiga's Norma is crafty, vulnerable, and hypnotic to watch -- she's completely unpredictable as the character and in the way Norma is portrayed.  Hit the jump for more on the series (spoiler-free), and its current ratings.  According to A&E, Bates Motel's second season premiered with 4.6 million total viewers, with 2.6 million being adults between 18-49, and 2.2 million between 25 and »

Jesse Plemons signs on for Johnny Depp's 'Black Mass'

4 April 2014 1:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) There’s good news, and potentially bad news, for Jesse Plemons fans today. Let’s start with the good. The Hollywood Reporter reveals that the "Breaking Bad" and "Friday Night Lights" veteran has been cast in a new project opposite Johnny Depp: "Black Mass", the biopic about South Boston crime legend Whitey Bulger. Plemons will play a blue-collar thug named Kevin Weeks, part of Bulger’s inner-circle. But here’s the rub: Does "Black Mass" mean Plemons won’t be in "Star Wars: Episode VII", as has been rumored over the past several weeks? The Warner Bros. gangster pic is expected to begin production in May, the same month that "Star Wars" is supposed to start shooting. On top of that, there’s this line from THR’s article on Plemons’ "Black Mass" casting: “He was one of the actors who had some meetings for a role in »
