“I don’t like change,” Peggy declares at one point in this week’s Mad Men. “I just want everything back the way it was.” Too bad, Peg, because your entire world is about to shift in seismic fashion. After a very methodical start to the season, the AMC drama ramped up, big time, with the packed “For Immediate Release.” Let’s take a good look at what went down.

Greetings from the apocalypse! This was a scary-ass week for my homies in Boston. Why we gotta blow each other up, people? If we keep exploding ourselves all we'll wind up with is Charlton Heston screaming at the Statue of Liberty. Truth. Love, peace and chicken grease, y'all. Now, movies …

When Scarface said, "The World is Yours," there should have been an asterisk that read "*As long as you're not a complete knucklehead." That's the heavy-duty lesson Mark Wahlberg, The Rock and Anthony Mackie learn as a trio of gym rats-cum-criminals in "Pain & Gain," the latest filmsplosion from the Michael Bay ejaculatory system.

Suicide Squad Volume 2: Basilisk Rising is this comic equivalent of a ‘90s action movie starring Casper Van Dien directed by Renny Harlin. If that sounds good to you then you’ll love this book, but for anyone with taste, this book will be both dumb and tedious to read. It’s also hella confusing due to poor (or, in places, no) plotting. But I digest…
The Squad are as dysfunctional as ever with the unlikeable and cold Amanda Waller keeping Task Force X (as they’re alternately known) in check with the threat of bombs planted in their necks and her finger over the detonation button. Depending on your knowledge of the DC Universe, they’re mostly made up of lesser-known characters like Iceberg, King Shark, Yo-Yo, Captain Boomerang and others; the two exceptions being Batman villain Deadshot and Harley Quinn, the Joker’s kind-of girlfriend.

Casting for the TV version of popular film franchise Beverly Hills Cop is gathering pace. According to The Hollywood Reporter, David Denman (The Office) will join the new show as a character called Brad Fullmer, “a strong, loyal and socially awkward detective and a good guy to have on your side”. It appears this character will be in the vein of the role played by Judge Reinhold (Vice Versa) in the film franchise.
The pilot from Shawn Ryan (The Shield) centres on Aaron (Brandon T. Jackson), the son of Axel Foley, who takes down the criminal elements of the rich and famous in Beverly Hills while working to escape his famous father's shadow. Eddie Murphy (Tower Heist) is set to reprise his role as Axel Foley and will have a recurring role in the series if it gets picked up. Denman joins Kevin Pollak (Shark) who also recently signed on »

John Leguizamo's last effort to get a show on ABC didn't work out -- the network passed on "The Kings of Van Nuys," a comedy he starred in, last season.
He's taking another shot with the network, though, this time with a show based on his own life.
Leguizamo will star in a pilot based loosely on his life as a husband and father living on Manhattan's affluent Upper West Side while trying to stay connected to his roots in the Bronx. Leguizamo also co-wrote the story for the pilot with Chris Sheridan ("Family Guy," "Titus").
Other pilot news:
- Kevin Pollak ("The Usual Suspects," "Shark") has joined the cast of CBS' "Beverly Hills Cop" series, which stars Brandon T. Jackson as the son of Axel Foley (Eddie Murphy, who will appear in and is an executive producer of the pilot). He'll play the in-house counsel for the Beverly Hills Pd, »
