On Wednesday we were given a shortlist of actresses up for the lead role in Marvel’s upcoming Jessica Jones Netflix series, and now we have one more name to add to the list of contenders. Deadline has updated their original post, and now cites The Divide, I Am Legend, and Homeland actress Marin Ireland as being in the mix for the coveted role.
Based on Brian Michael Bendis’ Alias comic book series, Jessica Jones is being spearheaded by former Dexter showrunner and Twilight screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg and will deal with a former superhero suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, who hung up her costume and opened her own detective agency, where she lends a helping hand to people and assists other superheroes.

Agents of Shield, Season 2, Episode 8: “The Things We Bury”
Written by DJ Doyle
Directed by Milan Cheylov
Airs Tuesdays at 9pm (Et) on ABC
Warning: This review contains major spoilers this episode of Agents of Shield.
The best way to sum up “The Things We Bury” is Grant’s observation that, “Nothing stays buried forever,” and wow, this episode finds some dark stuff buried in the past. Hydra’s human experimentation in Nazi Germany, Grant’s troubled family history, and what exactly happened to Skye’s mother is all revealed in full, gory detail. Agents of Shield is generally a family-friendly show, but “The Things We Bury” is violent and disturbing in a way that audiences have not seen before. It also might be the best episode of season two.

With production already under way on Marvel's Daredevil, Marvel and Netflix are currently meeting with potential cast members to fill out two of their remaining three superhero shows, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage.
Actresses Krysten Ritter (Breaking Bad), Alexandra Daddario (True Detective), Teresa Palmer (Warm Bodies) and Jessica De Gouw (Arrow) have been invited to read for Jessica Jones, with all of the actresses falling between the 25-33 age range listed on the breakdown.
Melissa Rosenberg (Twilight, Dexter, Birds of Prey) is writing and producing the series, which follows the title character suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, which causes her to retire as a superhero and form her own detective agency where she helps out other heroes. Deadline reports that Luke Cage will also appear in six or seven of the 13 Jessica Jones episodes, before moving on to his own series.
With Marvel’s ever-expanding Cinematic Universe crammed so full of characters, plots, and crossovers, it’s no surprise their bag of tricks has burst onto the small screen. Their new roster of TV shows has already found a home with streaming giant, Netflix, where they will all debut exclusively. Thanks to Deadline, who landed the scoop this morning, we now have an inkling as to who will be heading up one of those series: Jessica Jones.
Testing on the show has begun with Alexandra Daddario, Krysten Ritter, Teresa Palmer and Jessica De Gouw all in contention for the lead. Landing on a Marvel shortlist of course does wonders for any actor, even if they don’t bag the role. The fact that their resume has linked them to what’s bound to be a well-watched piece of entertainment is an achievement in itself.

James Cameron's 1986 film Aliens is an awesomely badass movie and one of my favorite sci-fi action films of all time. The movie was released with Michael Biehn in the role of Marine squad Leader Corporal Dwayne Hicks. But before Biehn came along, James Remar had originally been cast in the role. He even filmed a good chunk of the film before he was fired. Today we have a set of rare photos from the movie that feature Remar as Hicks.
It's really weird seeing him in the role because after seeing Biehn kick ass as the character it's hard to imagine anyone else play him. Remar was most recently in the Daniel Radcliffe film Horns, but he might be best known for his part as Harry Morgan in Dexter.
When Remar was let go from Aliens, it was said that it was because of "creative differences," but the actor »

A second series of the mega-popular ITV drama Broadchurch will air in January 2015 according to a new teaser that was released yesterday. Olivia Colman (Hyde Park on Hudson) and David Tennant (Doctor Who) will reprise their roles as DS Ellie Miller and Di Alex Hardy – who in the first series was tasked with finding the killer of a young boy in a small, close-knit Dorset community.
Broadchurch picked up the BAFTA earlier this year for Best Drama Series with Olivia Colman and David Bradley also receiving awards for Best Actress and Best Supporting Actor. Colman was also nominated for an International Emmy award. David Tennant had previously revisited the role for Us remake Gracepoint alongside Anna Gunn (Breaking Bad) but his character was renamed Emmett Carver.

“My problems always go away. I’m Teflon! Nothing sticks!”

In the exclusive sneak peek below, Will learns of a mystery girl (Dexter‘s Aimee Garcia) who insists she co-wrote “Runaway Sleigh,” aka Will’s Christmas gift that keeps on giving. But how can he handle a lawsuit when his comely attorney has already seen his, er, legal briefs?

There’s enough swaggering cynicism for three pictures but barely enough soul to sustain even one in Rupert Wyatt’s “The Gambler,” a stylish, energetic but disappointingly glib remake of Karel Reisz’s still-potent 1974 drama of the same title. Mark Wahlberg tears into one of his meatiest roles as an English professor drowning in a sea of blackjack debts and self-destructive impulses, a born risk-taker who’s aptly described as everything from “the kind of guy that likes to lose” to “the world’s stupidest asshole.” But it’s that surfeit of macho attitude in William Monahan’s script that keeps Wahlberg from coming anywhere near James Caan’s sly brilliance in the earlier film, making this a movie of slick, surface-level pleasures that’s unpersuasive at its core. In a roll of the awards-season dice, Paramount is launching “The Gambler” Dec. 19 with a one-week Oscar-qualifying run before its Jan. »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.
"Interstellar" star Anne Hathaway was on "The Tonight Show" Monday night, talking about how she got the date wrong for a Matthew McConaughey party and she and her husband accidentally showed up at his house the next day. She actually got the date wrong twice. She also crashed a different party with McConaughey. Anne had to talk about McConaughey at the American Cinematheque gala and she didn't know him too well so she wasn't sure what to say. Then it turns out she had to follow Sandra Bullock, who is not someone you want to follow. Then Anne went to say the first line of her speech ... and the teleprompter broke. »

In the very first image from cannibal western Bone Tomahawk, Kurt Russell is doing exactly what you’d expect – being damn cool. For first time director S. Craig Zahler’s dusty horror yarn, Russell plays Sheriff Franklin Hunt, who heads up what’s been described as a brutally-violent tale. There’s little doubt about the violence, at least judging by today’s picture debut, which showcases Hunt atop his trusty steed with a rifle strapped on. You know, just in case.
Over the course of the film, Russell leads a group of four men played by Matthew Fox, Patrick Wilson and Richard Jenkins. The story follows the group as they venture across the plains to rescue a handful of captives who’ve been kidnapped by a bunch of nomadic cannibals. It’s based on an original screenplay by director-writer Zahler, and one that’s garnered an equally impressive supporting roster. »

Nerdist Industries has debuted a fall show perfect for this Halloween season. The company acquired by Legendary Entertainment premiered a new episode of The Real Housewives of Horroron October 30, 2014, with special guest star Chris Hardwick. Created by Kevin Pereira (from G4’s Attack of the Show) and Brea Grant (Heroes, Dexter), The Real Housewives of Horror parodies all those reality TV shows about the daily lives and “struggles” of rich housewives. However, the web series takes on a decidedly darker yet more comedic angle as the women in Nerdist’s version are all married to or interested in monsters, killers, or demonic spirits. In the newest episode “Dawn of the Dawn: The Dawnening,” Grant’s character Heather decides to host a speed-dating night for her friend Barbara Dawn (Brooke Seguin), who’s just getting over the death of her late, hatchet-wielding husband Cage Trollman. Barbara meets several eligible men, including »

It’s Halloween! Icicles are glistening from window sills. Chestnuts are roasting on open fires. North Pole elves are… hang on, no. None of that nice, fluffy stuff is happening. At Halloween, demonic creatures hunt for flesh, monsters creep out of their graves, and TV does its level best to freak us all the hell out.
In the spirit of all that, we asked our writers to select and share the TV episodes, horror or otherwise, that have made them whimper with fear. Here they all are, 31 of them, because, well, at Halloween, we like things to add up to 31.
Note that this isn’t a Top 10, or a Best Of, nor is it listed in order of scariness. It’s a collection of the particular »
