13 February 2015 12:43 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Bad Robot Hulu series based on Stephen King’s 11/22/63 has found its lead – Mr James Franco

It has been a while since we heard anything about the televisual adaptation of Stephen King’s 11/22/63. If you missed our initial story, the 2011 best-selling novel is set to become a 9-episode series on Hulu, thanks to the involvement of Jj AbramsBad Robot production company.

The show has now found its star, in the shape of James Franco, who will play ‘unassuming divorced English teacher’ Jake Epping.  In case you're bad with names, Franco is the star of 127 Hours, The Interview, This Is The End and the former Harry Osborn to Tobey Maguire's Spider-Man. He's toyed with comedy a lot lately, but this sounds like a return to serious drama.

The plot focuses on Jake’s attempts to stop the assassination of John F. Kennedy, after stumbling across a time portal to the late fifties, »

James Franco Puts 11/22/63 In His Calendar

12 February 2015 12:34 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Never happier than when he’s trying to do 300 things at once – write, direct, study, poet…ise? – James Franco is taking on another job, this time one for the small screen the Freaks And Geeks veteran occasionally still frequents. He’s signed onto lead Hulu’s adaption of Stephen King’s time-travelling novel 11/22/63. King’s book, which hit shelves in 2011, follows 35 year-old high-school English teacher Jake Epping, who becomes obsessed with John F. Kennedy’s assassination and finds a way to travel back in time to try to prevent the shooting in 1960s Dallas. Franco is set to play Epping, and while that’s clearly not enough for him, he’ll also be a producer. The art walk inspired by the show must surely already be bubbling away in his noggin.After the project lingered in cinematic development limbo for a while, Hulu splashed the cash last September to bring King, »

10 February 2015 10:58 PM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

It has almost been four years since the final football was thrown at East Dillon High School on Friday Night Lights. The series, which debuted on NBC in 2006, was never a ratings winner but was very loved by the critics and we here at TVOvermind. Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton played the parents we wish we all had and were successful television actors before joining the show. The actors that played the teenagers on Friday Night Lights were virtually unknown before being cast on the awesome series. Now that the show has been off the air since 2011, you may have seen one of these talented actors on another one of your beloved TV series, or even starring in a blockbuster film. Here is what the cast of Friday Night Lights has been up to in the last four years. Kyle Chandler as Coach Eric Taylor Kyle Chandler was not stranger to the world of… »

Netflix’s First Bloodline Trailer Introduces Us to the Dark, Dysfunctional Rayburn Family

9 February 2015 11:27 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

“We’re not bad people,” promises Kyle Chandler’s John Rayburn at the end of the first full trailer for Netflix’s new drama, Bloodline, “but we did a bad thing.” And since that sentence appears to be the dark and ominous slogan for the series, I’m guessing John is going to be a much different and, potentially, a much dangerous character than Coach Eric Taylor in Friday Night Lights. Although Chandler is the headlining star, the cast of Bloodline features many familiar names and faces, including Ben Mendelsohn (The Dark Knight Rises), Linda Cardellini (Freaks and GeeksMad Men), Sam Shepard (The Right Stuff), Sissy Spacek (Carrie), Norbert Leo Butz (Dan in Real Life), Jamie McShane (Sons of Anarchy), Jacinda Barrett (Suits) and Enrique Murciano (Without a Trace). The series was created and is executive produced by Todd A. Kessler, Daniel Zelman, and Glenn Kessler (Damages) and takes place in the Florida Keys, »
