Last week it was reported that Glee and Whiplash actress Melissa Benoist had been cast as the lead in Greg Berlanti’s (Arrow, The Flash) and Ali Adler’s (The New Normal, Chuck) Supergirl TV show that is coming to CBS. Now, we have even more casting news to report, as CBS and Warner Bros. TV have announced that True Blood’s Mehcad Brooks has been cast as James Olsen. To Superman fans, they will recognize him as Jimmy Olsen, although based on the reports: it seems that he will mostly be referred to by his full name, James. On the show, James is a photographer at CatCo (Cat Grant’s company) where Kara (Benoist) works as well. He has been working and living in National City recently; however, the reason is being kept as a secret. In addition, James is being aimed as a love interest for Kara. In addition to True Blood, »

If you're betting on "Boyhood" to win big at the upcoming Academy Awards, think again! Richard Linklater's "Boyhood" was deemed to be the big Oscar frontrunner but a double-dose of guild awards over the weekend tamed those prospects down. First, the Producers Guild of America gave their top honor to Alejandro González Iñárritu's "Birdman," and the Screen Actors Guild followed suit!
"Birdman" took home the Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture award! But, since the movie is about acting, this award is just fitting.
My biggest surprise, and it'a welcome surprise indeed, was "The Theory of Everything's" Eddie Redmayne taking home the Outstanding Male Actor trophy. Sorry Michael Keaton! I think Redmayne truly gave the Performance of the Year award!
Amongst this years Screen Actors Guild Award winners are Eddie Redmayne, who won Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role for his portrayal of Steven Hawking in The Theory of Everything, Birdman, which took home Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture, and Orange Is the New Black, whose star Uzo Uduba claimed the Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series category.
Redmayne, dedicated his award to sufferers of Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (Als), the illness which Hawking himself suffers from. He also went on to congratulate fellow actors such as Bradley Cooper, David Oyelowo and Timothy Spall.
It has been a big weekend for Birdman, which not only won best ensemble »

If you’re a Den Of Geek regular, you’ll probably already be aware of the selection box of online treats that accompanies many of your favourite TV programmes.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, The Boy will be produced by Lakeshore Entertainment and Vertigo Entertainment.
It is believed a shooting start date is set for March in British Columbia.
Stacey Menear has written the script, which focuses on a nanny (Cohan) who is hired to care for a lifelike doll by a couple who treat it as a real child.
The pair use it as a coping mechanism to deal with the death of their young son, but with strange happenings occurring the nanny starts to believe the doll is alive.
Featuring narration from The Craft's Fairuza Balk (and with clips of Robin Tunney, Devon Sawa and co), it made us feel a sudden pang of nostalgia and sent us on our own trip down memory lane to find out where they - and the rest of the '90s teen movie crew - are now.
So, here are 11 stars from some of our favourite '90s teen movies, and what they've gone on to do since:
He went on to play teenage prophet of doom Alex Browning in Final Destination (2000), and appeared as similarly unstable Stan in Eminem's controversial music »
The Walking Dead star Lauren Cohan has signed on to star in the upcoming horror-thriller The Boy from Lakeshore Entertainment and Vertigo Entertainment. While the actress has appeared in features such as last year's Reach Me and 2010's Death Race 2, The Boy will mark her first leading role in a feature.
The story centers on a young nanny (Lauren Cohan), who has been tasked with caring for a lifelike doll by a strange couple, who use it as a coping mechanism following the death of their young son. The nanny eventually starts to believe more and more that this doll is actually alive.
William Brent Bell (The Devil Inside, Wer) is directing from a screenplay by Stacey Menear. Lakeshore's Gary Lucchesi and Tom Rosenberg are producing alongside Jim Wedaa and Vertigo's Roy Lee and Adam Stone. Production is scheduled to begin this March in British Columbia.

Comic-book heroes – particularly from the DC universe – have rarely been more successful on TV. Word arrived in October that Us network CBS (the home of the CSI franchise and other crime procedurals) was looking to get in on the action by commissioning Supergirl. We now know that Melissa Benoist will be playing Kara Zor-El in the show.The plot will follow Kal-El’s cousin, who escaped Krypton as he did and ended up on Earth. Initially unwilling to acknowledge her powers, she starts to come into her own in her mid-twenties and accept her heroic destiny. It’s the brainchild of Greg Berlanti, the man behind two of the bigger superhero shows on TV right now, Arrow and The Flash and Ali Adler, who worked on Chuck and short-lived super-powered domestic drama No Ordinary Family."As you can tell from the strength of the female characters we have on television, »
Early in the second episode of AMC's "Breaking Bad" prequel "Better Call Saul!," our hero Jimmy McGill — who will one day go by Saul Goodman — is taken out into the desert and threatened by someone who in the future will tangle with the man called Heisenberg. "Saul" creators Vince Gilligan (the man responsible for "Breaking Bad" in the first place) and Peter Gould (who wrote the episode that introduced Saul Goodman) have been very candid about how long it took them to figure out exactly what this new show would be. Sequel or prequel? Comedy or drama? Half-hour or hour? Everything seemed a possibility, and watching Saul cower in the New Mexico sun before a familiar "Breaking Bad" villain, I wondered if Gilligan and Gould had simply taken the path of least resistance and decided to wedge actor Bob Odenkirk into a kind of "Young Walter White Chronicles," simply giving »

There were a lot of quick finishes and long soliloquies last night, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. There was also a legends panel and a Raw reunion, not all of which was necessarily great. But all anyone will remember is Sting staring down Triple H and Brock Lesnar launching Big Show like he was a duffel bag stuffed with down.
So without either of my feet touching the floor, here are the five things I took away (in addition to some sidebar observations) from the January 19, pre-Royal Rumble edition of Raw. »
Comic book fans have been campaigning for Yvonne Strahovski to be cast as Captain Marvel since the character was still known as Ms. Marvel. The former Chuck star has since impressed in both Dexter and 24: Live Another Day, and may even star in her own Jack Bauer-less spinoff a couple of years from now. Will Marvel Studios listen to fan demand and cast her as Carol Danvers? We'll have to wait and see, but for now, enjoy these photos from GQ Magazine (via Movie Hotties) »
Let’s play a game. I’m going to describe a character, and you’re going to tell me who it is and what show they’re on. No cheating by looking ahead. Or at the title of this article. Alright so, this character lost his wife, came into the show in the third season, got in the way of the main pairing of the show, and is generally disliked by the fandom. Oh, and he’s played by Brandon Routh. If you’re confused because you can’t think of just one character who fits this description, that’s because there isn’t just one; there’s two. Both Daniel Shaw from Chuck and Ray Palmer from Arrow fit this description. And I’m here to argue how they are not just played by the same actor, but are essentially the same character. During the third season of Chuck, »

Brandon Routh is making the case for Ray Palmer!
Introduced at the start of Arrow’s third season, the charming, fast-talking and super-witty Palmer Technologies billionaire breathes a different energy into The CW comic-book show. Not weighed down by the vigilante lifestyle or a cursed family name, he has a perspective and approach on life far different from that of Oliver Queen (who will be M.I.A. for a while). And, he can hold his own against Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards)!
Routh is well aware of the mark Ray is making on Arrow (there's even talk of a potential spin-off!), especially when it comes to the passionate “Olicity” fans – and he has to be. Routh has been a part of a major TV love triangle before (see: Chuck), but this one may take the cake.

Zachary Levi is returning to NBC for the reboot of one of the shows that shared network airtime with "Chuck." NBC announced on Friday (January 16) morning that Levi will be one of the stars of the network's event miniseries "Heroes Reborn" playing... nothing we can discuss. The network release says only that Levi will play "a key yet undisclosed role." Well Ok! One actor whose "Heroes Reborn" role we can, indeed, disclose is Jack Coleman, who will be back as Hrg/Noah Bennet for the series, which has a yet-to-be-determined premiere date on NBC. Although Levi's role remains nebulous, he was able to produce an enthusiastic quote for NBC's analysis. “One of my first, and fondest, memories of joining the NBC family in 2007 was having the pleasure of getting to know Tim Kring, and the cast of ‘Heroes,’" Levi states. "I was a fan of their collective work and always »
