On Yon Bloomy Spray: Oyelowo Dominates Lester’s One Set Drama
Director Elliott Lester, best known for his 2011 Jason Statham offering, Blitz, adapts firstime screenwriter Frederick Mensch’s character study Nightingale for the big screen, to surprisingly compelling effect. Cinched into the cozy house of its main character, we witness first hand the unraveling of a mind after a dastard deed. As we’re never really allowed to travel outside of these confines, it sometimes feels like the filmed version of a play. Slight visual texturing aside, everything takes a backseat to a masterful performance from David Oyelowo, the driving force of every single minute of film, a space never shared with any other physical actor. It’s a meaty, multifaceted role, something nearly extinct in modern climes where multiple intersections of storylines stomp all over any given narrative.
Peter Snowden (Oyelowo) is an incredibly lonely and persistently overwrought person. »

With all the ongoing (and upcoming) DC and Marvel television projects on both major networks and digital platforms, NBC is currently working on its own returning superhero property: Heroes Reborn. While a lot of story details are currently being kept under wraps, Heroes Reborn is continuing to expand its cast, with Deadline announcing the casting of Orphan Black’s Dylan Bruce. As most of the series’ cast members, Bruce’s role is unknown for now, and the only detail we have is that he will be appearing as a guest star. Bruce is most well-known for his role as Paul on Orphan Black. However, he’s also appeared in many other series, including Arrow, NCIS, As the World Turns, and Las Vegas. Just a few weeks ago, two of Heroes Reborn roles were revealed: Chuck’s Zachary Levi will play a character named Luke Collins, and Kiki Sukezane will portray Miko Otomo. »
The actor will recur on NBC’s upcoming Heroes Reborn revival. (And if you don’t want to know what became of Ob‘s Paul, don’t read the last paragraph of this story.)

The Peacock network isn’t releasing any details about Bruce’s character, our sister site Deadline reports, but the actor will recur in the event series, which will air Thursdays this fall.
Reborn is a continuation of NBC’s superhero drama Heroes, which originally ran »
The youtube channel The Hillywood Show has made a name for itself by recontextualising popular songs to double as homages to well-known tv shows, with costumes and sets to match, along with dances. They have previously done parodies of Doctor Who and The Walking Dead, repurposing “The Time Warp” and “Another One bites the Dust” respectively.
For their latest video, the duo behind the channel took on the CW series Supernatural, setting the storyline of the show’s just-ended tenth season to Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off”. In addition to getting a Chevy Impala much like the one driven in the series, the show tapped Osric Chau, who played Kevin Tran on the series and has appeared on previous Hillywood Show videos, to play Sam Winchester. In addition, the video managed to snag Rob Benedict, who played Chuck Shurley on Supernatural, to take on the role of Cain, with »

As you probably guessed from the title and accompanying image of this article, Greg Grunberg will be reprising his role as telepathic detective Matt Parkman in NBC’s upcoming Heroes Reborn, the continuation of the original Heroes series.
Greg Grunberg’s character will have a ‘guest arc’ in the new series, which we suppose could mean anything than a string of fan-service cameos to a strong self-contained story. Naturally, we won’t know the full extent of Matt Parkman’s role in proceedings until we seem them play out on TV.
“This highly anticipated 13-episode event series will reconnect with the basic elements of the show’s first season, where ordinary people were waking up to the fact that they had extraordinary abilities,” but also “develops new layers to [returning creator Tim Kring’s] original superhero concept, »
Another original hero is being Reborn this fall.
Airing Thursdays this fall, Reborn is a continuation of NBC’s superhero drama, which originally ran for four seasons from 2006 to 2010.
In addition to Grunberg reprising his Heroes role, Jack Coleman will be back as Noah Bennet, Masi Oka will return as Hiro Nakamura and Jimmy Jean-Louis will once again play the mind-erasing Haitian. »
NBC seems to be working hard to populate its upcoming "Heroes" reboot, "Heroes Reborn," with plenty of familiar faces from the original series, and that casting pattern continues with the addition of Greg Grunberg to the ensemble.
Entertainment Weekly reports that Grunberg, who played telepathic detective Matt Parkman on the original show, is set to reprise his role on "Reborn." According to EW, his involvement is being described as a "guest arc," so it's unclear at this point just how big of a part he will play in the new series (or how many episodes he'll appear in).
There's a lot of secrecy surrounding the show right now (check out the series's first, extremely short teaser for proof of that »

"Bound in human flesh and inked in blood..." The book that brings forth Deadite-induced destruction will be seen this fall in the Ash vs Evil Dead series on Starz, and director Michael J. Bassett recently revealed an image of the series' Necronomicon.

Tucked inside CBS's fall schedule announcement this morning was another surprise: Bradley Cooper will appear in the network's Limitless series, in a recurring role. As with his part in the Wet Hot American Summer prequel, it was generally assumed that Cooper was too famous to stop by the TV version of his moderately well-received 2011 film, but he apparently enjoyed playing mind-boosting drug addict Edward Mora enough to reprise his role for the series. (The fact that he's an executive producer on the show probably helped.) In the show, Cooper's character is now a senator who aims to use star Jake McDornan — who is also on mind-boosting drugs, natch — as his "protégé"; since this show is basically a serious Chuck, does that make him the new Scott Bakula? »

With its miserable fall season, NBC could really use a hit right now, and it’s banking on Heroes Reborn, a continuation of the once-popular superhero series, to provide that boost. Today, the network released the first official images from the upcoming limited series, which will see the return of some old cast members as well as the unveiling of many new ones. The new shots provide our first look at Jack Coleman, reprising the role of Noah Bennet (aka Hrg), and new characters played by Chuck alum Zachary Levi and up-and-comer Kiki Sukezane.
Levi plays Luke Collins, a mysterious character who clearly seems none-too-happy with someone he’s holding a gun on, while Sukezane is taking on the role of Miko Otomo. Details on who these new people are will have to wait, though Collins is believed to be the series’ villain, devoted to tracking »

AMC has announced that production is underway on The Walking Dead companion series Fear the Walking Dead, and to commemorate the occasion a special behind-the-scenes video has been released, which you can watch here.
“Fear the Walking Dead takes us back to the earlier, more dangerous, more terrifying days of The Walking Dead,” said Robert Kirkman. “A time when danger was lurking around every corner and the thing mostly likely to get you killed was your own ignorance of the rapidly changing world around you. The stakes are going to be higher and the ride more intense. We’re going to show people all the insanity of civilization crumbling that Rick Grimes slept through. Buckle up.”

From executive producer Greg Berlanti (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” “The Mysteries of Laura”) comes “Blindspot”: A vast international plot explodes when a beautiful Jane Doe, completely covered in mysterious, intricate tattoos, is discovered naked in Times Square with no memory of who she is or how she got there. But there’s one tattoo that is impossible »

AMC's Fear The Walking Dead has added some more potential zombie fodder in the form of Chuck actress Mercedes Mason. Though her exact role is unknown at this time, she's down as a series regular along with last week's new addition, Elizabeth Rodriguez (Orange is the New Black.) The main focus of the show will be Kim Dickins' guidance counsellor Nancy, and Cliff Curtis as divorced teacher Sean Cabrera. The first six-episode season is set to air sometime this Summer with a second expected to follow in 2016. Frank Dillane and Alycia Debnam Carey will also star, with Adam Davidson (Friday Night Lights, Fringe) directing the pilot. Robert Kirkman has confirmed that the series will start out as a prequel and deal with events leading up to the outbreak, but will eventually catch up to the current timeline of The Walking Dead. »
Here’s one that’s been assumed for a long time. In fact, some news outlets claimed this news was confirmed months ago. It’s nice to say it with 100% surety, though – the Supergirl TV series will get a full season.
Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg of Arrow and The Flash, alongside Ali Adler of Chuck, will serve as executive producers on the show. Those three co-wrote the pilot episode together, too. That's the episode that secured the season order, naturally.
Melissa Benoist of Glee and Whiplash fame will take the title role of Supergirl, Aka Kara Zor-El, Aka Superman’s cousin. She’ll be working at a media conglomerate called CatCo, before deciding to embrace her superheroic abilities that she had previously tried to hide. You »
