Many of the races at Sunday (March 2) night's Academy Awards seem pre-determined as the ceremony is about to begin. Those guys from "My So-Called Life" and "True Detective" seem like locks. Etc. However, Best Picture is wide open. So let's hope that adds drama, while Ellen DeGeneres adds comedy. Click through and join my 2014 Oscars Live-Blogging. And comment below! 8:25 p.m. Et. So how many times do we figure Jennifer Lawrence is going fall down on tonight's Oscars telecast. Five? 10? Twice that many if she wins? Actually, if she wins, Lupita Nyong'o fans are going to be tripping her. Not Lupita, though. She's too classy for that. 8:27 p.m. There are dozens of people in the HitFix office right now, but I'm hiding out in my office, because I'm dedicated to you, the readers. Because I'd just keep eating lasagna if I were with the main group. Also, »

The poster for Voyage of the Damned makes a bold claim, and maybe those who saw Stuart Rosenberg’s star-studded blockbuster in 1976 have remembered it ever since. Until a couple of weeks ago, however, when I saw it in a list of past Oscar nominees, I had never heard of it, and I don’t think it would be unfair to say that it is a film that has not stood the test of time.
Voyage of the Damned, which chronicles the tragic failed escape of 937 Jewish refugees from Nazi Germany, was nominated for three Oscars (for Best Score, Best Adapted Screenplay, and for Lee Grant for Best Supporting Actress, the lone acting nominee among a boatload of international heavyweights).
Oscar nominations, especially for acting, tend to confer a certain amount of immortality on their recipients (you are forever “Academy Award nominee Lee Grant”) and there are many films and »

Whew! A flurry of casting news has come out over the past few days for The CW's potential spinoff series "Supernatural: Tribes," and we have all the details here on who'll be playing a werewolf, a shapeshifter, and a mentor with a dirty little secret.
As previously announced, Nathaniel Buzolic plays David Hayden, a shapeshifter from one of Chicago’s ruling monster families, while Lucien Laviscount portrays Ennis Roth, a human police academy trainee who learns the truth about what lurks in the shadows and becomes a monster hunter himself.
Now, as for the newbies, TVLine reports that Sean Faris (pictured above), currently recurring as Officer Gabriel Holbrook on "Pretty Little Liars" (he also appeared on "The Vampire Diaries" as Ben McKittrick), will play Julian Durant, the son of a wealthy family of lycanthropes who has no love for the Hayden clan.

During the closing ceremonies of the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics, NBC managed to sneak in a promo for their new reboot of 'Heroes' coming in 2015. The new limited run series — touted as 'Heroes: Reborn' — doesn't have much in the way of information yet. No idea if stars such as Zachary Quinto and Hayden Panettiere will make appearances or if they show will go the way of 'American Horror Story' and 'True Detective' and take a stab at an anthology. But does it matter? Ughhh. NBC we need to talk. There are ways to hop on the superhero bandwagon guys but reheating off-brand leftovers definitely isn't it. »

The upcoming Supernatural spin-off continues to pluck talent from the vast Vampire Diaries alumni files.
The latest? Stephen Martines, who has been tapped for a series regular spot on Supernatural: Tribes and most recently played ultra-violent vamp Frederick (a.k.a.: Pearl’s tomb buddy) on Tvd in seasons 1 and 3. Martines will play Det. Freddie Costa, a world-weary Chicago cop who serves as a mentor to main character Ennis (Lucien Laviscount) but is also secretly on the payroll of one of the city’s most powerful monster families.

Danielle Savre (Heroes) is set as one of the female leads in Supernatural: Tribes, the CW’s planted Supernatural spinoff, which will air as an episode of the veteran sci-fi series on April 29. Also set for a lead role in the project is former Vampire Diaries recurring player Stephen Martines, who will be joining fellow Tvd alums Nathaniel Buzolic and Sean Faris as well as Lucien Laviscount. Written by Andrew Dabb and directed by Robert Singer, the sweeping drama revolves around the various mafia-esque monster families that unknowingly to humans “run” the underbelly of Chicago and are being tracked by a newly minted Hunter who’s trying to stop them and rid Chicago of anything or anyone supernatural. Savre, repped by TalentWorks and Zero Gravity, plays Margo, the acting head of the leading shapeshifter family, an ex-punk rocker-turned-corporate professional who feels threatened only by the return of her prodigal brother David (Buzolic) into the family. »

Well, I think it’s about time I put my foot in my mouth when it comes to Heroes. In the past, I would never hesitate to speak my mind about what I really thought of that series. It wasn’t the first TV show about people with special abilities and it won’t be the last, but it definitely had the most impact. It started strong – who doesn’t remember “Save the girl, save the world”? – but it floundered quickly. It’s audience steadily declined in accordance to the decline of quality until the series was cancelled in 2010 during its fourth season. But time apparently heals all wounds and NBC is ready to give Heroes another chance.
NBC aired the below announcement teaser for what it’s called Heroes Reborn. In the vain of 24: Live Another Day, this resurrection will be a 13-episode miniseries, functioning as a standalone arc. »

If there’s one thing Arrow is good at, it’s hitting the ground running. This week’s episode comes after a brief hiatus due to the Olympics, but it was definitely worth the wait. Packed full of great action, character moments and teases for what’s to come, ”Time of Death” was another winner for The CW’s hit show.
The episode opens with a great introduction to the villain of the week, William Tockman, Aka The Clock King. Tockman is played by Heroes alum Robert Knepper, who brings a great deal of depth and grit to the potentially cheesy character who’s faced off with Green Arrow in the comics since his debut in 1960. The writers managed to update him for the grounded, realistic approach taken in the show, while keeping the majority of the character’s origin story intact.
“Time of Death” opens with Tockman maneuvering two »

(Cbr) Three actors have been added to The CW's "iZombie" pilot, as reported Tuesday by Deadline: Malcolm Goodwin, Alexandra Krosney and David Anders. Goodwin, best known for his role on A&E's "Breakout Kings," will play "co-lead" Clive, a police detective and main character Liv's boss. Krosney, who appeared on a 2009 episode of "Lost," has been cast as Peyton, Liv's best friend and roommate. Anders, best known for his roles in "Alias," "Heroes," "Once Upon a Time" and a one-episode appearance in "Arrow," will play show villain Blaine, described by Deadline as "an entitled rich kid who bites off more than he can chew in the drug business." These are the first cast announcements for the Vertigo adaptation, in contention for a spot on The CW's 2014-2015 schedule. Notably, none of these character names -- including lead character Liz, who was named Gwendolyn Price in the comic -- are from the source material, »

Creator Tim Kring is bringing back Heroes for a 13-episode fifth season, entitled Heroes: Reborn, on NBC in 2015. It's said to have “a standalone arc”, and will be preceded by a web series (hopefully one that international viewers can watch this time).
NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke said: “Until we get closer to air in 2015, the show will be appropriately shrouded in secrecy, but we won't rule out the possibility of some of the show's original cast members popping back in.”
With Heroes returning for a 13-episode event series, titled Heroes Reborn, in 2015, what does that mean for the original cast? Will all the superheroes return? We can’t say for certain, but we do know one actor who’d happily reprise his role.
Robert Knepper, who played evolved human/carnival runner Samuel Sullivan in the original series, told us he would gladly return to the show. “It’s funny. I just did hear about that and I haven’t been approached yet, but I’m hoping that’s just because it’s just happened so quickly. I would love to be a part of it, »

David Lynch knows exactly when he started transcendental meditation: "On July 1st, 1973, at about 11 am." Although Lynch is most famous as a director of delightfully twisted movies from Eraserhead to Inland Empire, he is also a painter, an actor (most recently on Louie), a coffee seller, and the founder of the David Lynch Foundation for Consciousness-Based Education and World Peace. The foundation is dedicated to spreading transcendental meditation (the practice developed by the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, who famously taught it to the Beatles)—particularly to groups at risk, such as the homeless, »
Update: Heroes alum Greg Grunberg is returning to primetime.

We've been talking about the "Metal Hurlant Chronicles" around these parts for what feels like forever, and finally we have some good news... We'll finally be able to see it too!
According to Variety, Syfy has acquired the first two seasons of the French science-fiction/action series "Metal Hurlant Chronicles."
Helmed by Guillaume Lubrano, the English-language show was produced by We Productions and is co-produced by Belvision and Nexus. “Metal Hurlant Chronicles” is based on the French sci-fi and fantasy comics anthology published in the U.S. as “Heavy Metal” and created by comic artists Jean Giraud (a.k.a.
