Colin Farrell is your new "True Detective." After weeks of speculation, the "Saving Mr. Banks" actor has confirmed he'll be starring in Season 2 of the HBO crime drama, telling the Sunday World: "I’m doing the second series. I’m so excited." He then added: "I know it will be eight episodes and take around four or five months to shoot. I know very little about it, but we’re shooting in the environs of Los Angeles which is great. It means I get to stay at home and see the kids." The network still hasn't confirmed Farrell's casting. "True Detective" Season 1 starred Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey and was directed by Cary Fukunaga, who won an Emmy for his work on the show. It was additionally nominated for four more Emmys including Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for Harrelson and McConaughey. Farrell is the first actor to »

HBO, however, officially remains mum on what’s become a rather torturous casting process (in the press anyway), as the network and creator Nic Pizzolatto seek to fill several key roles on the show in the wake of the first »

In Tara Bennett's book "Showrunners: The Art Of Running A TV Show," the job is variously described as being a dictator, a CEO or leading an army. And while we're now in the era of celebrity showrunners—Damon Lindelof ("Lost," "The Leftovers"), Matthew Weiner ("Mad Men"), Vince Gilligan ("Breaking Bad")—it's often forgotten how expansive the responsibilities that come with that position truly are. If you've ever wondered exactly how complicated the machinery is that drives your favorite show, or what the gig actually entails, Bennett's book—a companion piece to the forthcoming documentary directed by Des Doyle—is a slightly jumbled, but still interesting peek behind the curtain. With names like Joss Whedon, Jonathan Nolan, Terrence Winter, Damon Lindelof and more taking part, 'Showrunners' brings a broad spectrum of talent from shows both popular and niche, both successful and failed, to help define what that eleven letter word means. »

Blake Lively, America Ferrera, Alexis Bledel, and Amber Tamblyn had a Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants reunion earlier this week when they met up for brunch.
