The week before Halloween will see the commencement of principal photography on Edward Payson’s next project: Our Friend John – The Documentary.
Our Friend Jon, a collaboration between Payson’s prolific production company, An AntiHero Production, and Maria Olsen’s MOnsterworks66, will document the story of how three friends will produce and shoot the short film, Rose Thorn, written by Jonathan Hernandez. What makes this story special is that Jon passed away from complications due to Sickle Cell Anemia while writing the script, and what makes it particularly poignant is that Jon’s three friends, Nick Saporito, Brandon Joyal and Garrett Payson, all lead extremely challenging lives...
What will make this film appeal to horror fans worldwide is that Rose Thorn is a horror film...it was Jon’s wish to become a horror filmmaker, and, by shooting his film and documenting the process, his family and friends will both »
Daredevil has found his mentor.

I’ll most definitely be checking out Marvel’s Daredevil Netflix show (even though my excitement may have dimmed a bit in the wake of writer Drew Goddard’s departure). The last we’d heard on the casting front was that Deborah Ann Woll (True Blood) would be signing up for the role of Karen Page. Now we’ve got confirmed news that Scott Glenn (The Silence of the Lambs, The Right Stuff) will also be joining the series as Stick, Matt Murdock’s mentor. I can definitely see this working, Glenn has a terse reserve that allows him to be commanding without being broad. Charlie Cox (Boardwalk Empire) will star as Murdock/Daredevil, along with Elden Henson (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay) as Murdock’s best friend and legal partner Foggy Nelson, Vincent D’Onofrio as the crime lord Kingpin, and Rosario Dawson, who has an unknown ‘critical’ role on the show. »

Scott Glenn has been announced by Marvel to play the mysterious martial artist and mentor to Daredevil, Stick, in the upcoming Netflix series which is set to debut next year. Glenn is best known for his roles in The Bourne Ultimatum, The Silence of the Lambs, Training Day and Apocalypse Now. This is not the first time that the character of Stick will appear in live action, with Terence Stamp previously playing the role in Elektra back in 2005.
“Stick is one of the most important figures in Matt Murdock’s life and Scott Glenn embodies all the qualities of someone so integral to this hero’s journey,” said Jeph Loeb, Marvel’s Head of Television. “There are few actors who could bring such the authenticity, gravitas and charisma to such a key role in Matt’s journey to become the super hero we call Daredevil.”

With a show as loaded with lazy cop tropes as "The Mysteries of Laura," it's tempting to bust out a few TV critic clichés in kind. Maybe I could suggest that the series — whose promos all suggest that the chief mystery is how in the world a woman could possibly be both a cop and a mom(*) at the same time — is in the running for the best new fall show of 1984. (*) Linda Holmes of NPR has dubbed the show "CopMom, MomCop," and her catchy alternate theme song is probably a better critique of the show than the one you're reading here. But that would be unfair to 1984, whose best new fall show was "The Cosby Show." More importantly, that season led to the first Outstanding Drama Series Emmy win for "Cagney & Lacey," a cop show that dealt with all sorts of questions about the life of a female police »

If you haven’t watched Sons of Anarchy’s season 7 premiere, stop reading now. If you have, you’ve probably found yourself wondering about the actor who played Chris Dun, the Lin Triad member Gemma framed for Tara’s murder. It’s the first and only appearance for 32-year-old Tim Park on the show, but it sets the final season in motion. Not that he knew that when he landed the part.
He was just finishing up a recurring, non-speaking role as a member of the Yakuza on HBO’s True Blood when his agent sent him an email about auditioning for Sons. »

With production underway, we should be expecting some footage or a trailer coming out of the set of Marvel’s Daredevil in the next few months. But with shows like Orange is the New Black and House of Cards pushing the boundaries you can’t push on regular TV via Netflix, will the Man Without Fear be able to take a similar approach?
Less than Spartacus, more than Shield. Rt @TimLydon0: What are you allowed to show on @Daredevil in terms of violence, swearing, etc?

Quite the gap really. DeKnight was the man behind Spartacus: Blood and Sand which aired in 2010 and was known for its high levels of violence and foul language while Marvel »

Once a series has gone off the boil a little, it's rare for it to recover and come swinging back: shows like "Dexter" and "True Blood" started strong before getting steadily worse as the seasons rolled on past the story's natural lifespan. Some have argued that "Homeland" looked to have been following that path: a terrific first season, before two that felt increasingly like the show was scrabbling for ideas, even if isolated scenes or even episodes remained of the same high quality. But things have changed: after the death of one of the series' main characters at the end of season three, the show's now been retooled and virtually rebooted, with a new setting, new cast members, and a storyline essentially starting from scratch. And though we're still a few weeks from the season premiere, we've now had the best look so far at "Homeland" 2.0 thanks to a new »

Nick Loeb just can't help himself.
Is Sofia Vergara's ex-fiancé a little bitter?
"I'm sort of a conservative, so I like a girl to dress a little classier," he said.
And despite having been engaged to Vergara for two years, Loeb apparently isn't a fan of cleavage-baring looks.
"No. I've always sort of liked the more classic, elegant look on a woman," he explained.
"I guess if I was a girl, I'd be dating him, too," he joked.
Loeb and Vergara, 42, split in May. She stepped out with Manganiello, 37, two months later in July.

One HBO drama concluded its first season, the other started its last: Sunday ratings are in for HBO’s The Leftovers finale and the final season premiere for Boardwalk Empire.
Boardwalk matched last season’s opener with 2.4 million viewers, with additional airings lifting the full night total to 2.9 million. So that’s on par.
The Leftovers ended with its typical modesty—1.5 million viewers (1.7 million for the night), which is on par with its slumpy first-season average (despite having True Blood powering most of its run as a lead-in). HBO points out the drama was up against NBC’s Sunday Night »

HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire,” which is wrapping this fall after five seasons, returned Sunday to a regular-timeslot audience of about 2.4 million viewers, according to Nielsen — up from the 2.2 million it drew with its fourth-season finale last November and on par with last year’s opener (which was its season high).
The period crime drama starring Steve Buscemi cumed 2.9 million viewers for the night when including its two replays.
Also for HBO on Sunday, “The Leftovers” followed at 10 p.m. with about 1.5 million viewers for its first-season finale. While this merely matched the show’s average, it did so up against its toughest competition to date: the season premiere of NBC’s “Sunday Night Football.”
According to HBO, “The Leftovers” averaged a gross weekly audience of about 7.3 million viewers during its first season. The network had already renewed the show for a second season.
“Boardwalk Empire” is one of three HBO »
