Apparently, when he's not cutting hair, Zach Galifianakis is living in a haunted house with Tim & Eric. Well, that's at least what his new Adult Swim pilot would like you to believe. Entitled Tim & Eric’s Bedtime Stories: Zach’s Haunted House, the show would feature those three knuckleheads as relatives whose grandfather dies and leaves them each $1,000, but in order to collect, they must live in his haunted mansion for the rest of their lives. Just a guess, but it'll probably be super weird.At today's Upfronts, Adult Swim also announced pilots from Paul Scheer, former Space Ghost writer Matt Harrigan, the creators of Robot Chicken, and two live-action pilots from Boondocks creator Aaron McGruder. They'll be looking to join the new series from Dan Harmon and Mike Tyson. We already knew about Harmon's animated show about an inventor and his grandson, Rick and Morty, but Mike Tyson? »

Even before Mark Romanek yelled "Action!" on "One Hour Photo," his debut feature film, he was already a trailblazer behind the camera. The filmmaker had made a name for himself as a music video director, helming iconic spots for Lenny Kravitz ("Are You Gonna Go My Way"), Nine Inch Nails ("Closer"), Madonna ("Bedtime Stories"), Michael Jackson ("Scream"), Fiona Apple ("Criminal"), Johnny Cash ("Hurt") and much, much more. His videos were bold and found Romanek able to easily switch genres musically and stylistically without batting an eye, delivering evocative spots that both defined the director and the artists he worked with. But when it came to his feature film, he largely kept the flashy stylization at bay. "One Hour Photo," starring Robin Williams playing a photo developer at a mega chain who develops an obsession with his favorite customers, is an exercise in control, with the thrills and dread coming as »

Richard Griffiths, who played the cruel Uncle Vernon Dursley in the "Harry Potter" franchise, has passed away on Thursday from complications following heart surgery. He was 65 years old. "Harry Potter" star Daniel Radcliffe commented on the death of his friend. He said: "Richard was by my side during two of the most important moments of my career. In August 2000, before official production had even begun on 'Potter,' we filmed a shot outside the Dursleys, which was my first ever shot as Harry. I was nervous and he made me feel at ease. Seven years later, we embarked on 'Equus' together. It was my first time doing a play but, terrified as I was, his encouragement, tutelage and humor made it a joy. In fact, any room he walked into was made twice as funny and twice as clever just by his presence. I am proud to say I knew him. »
Why exactly did Tim & Eric decide to make a reality show that records their lives through GoPro cameras? As Tim Heidecker said while on a panel at SXSW promoting Jash, a new YouTube channel with whom they're partnering, it's because GoPro gave them some free cameras and they didn't know what else to do with them. Based on the trailer above, we're glad they did.
This marks only one project the dadaist duo have coming out this year. Eric Wareheim told BuzzFeed that they are working on a new Adult Swim show, "Tim & Eric's Bedtime Stories," which will be an anthology series similar to "The Twilight Zone" that he described as a "fourth-dimensional nightmare." »

The Scorecard Review news
News: Keri Russell is joining the cast of Matt Reeves’ Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. She joins Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke, Kodi Smit-McPhee, and Gary Oldman in the sequel to Rise of the Planet of the Apes. The film is set to be released on May 23, 2014.
Thoughts by Tsr: Well, I guess this settles it. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is my new favorite movie. Sure, I’m getting a little ahead of myself, but just look at this cast! Last month we learned about the involvement of Zero Dark Thirty’s Jason Clarke. Clarke, Andy Serkis returning as Caesar, and Matt Reeves directing would have been enough for me. Then Gary Oldman joined the cast as leader of the human resistance, thus boosting my excitement even higher. Now we have Keri Russell’s casting to cement this as an »

Hopefully you’ve been watching this really fun, entertaining supernatural show. If not, now’s the time to get going on that. Lost Girl brings us new supernatural creatures nearly every week as well as longer story arcs, some nice fight scenes, great cast chemistry, and lots of sex between pretty people. What’s not to like?
The series is produced in Canada and airs on Showcase there; Showcase and Syfy both announced the new season pickup yesterday. Unfortunately, while Canada is getting the next season in late 2013, we in the U.S. have to wait until 2014. Hopefully that isn’t set in stone…

With Hannibal, The Munsters, Sleepy Hollow, Penny Dreadful, The Following, and another season of American Horror Story coming to TV, it’s a wonderful time to be a horror TV fan. Add ABC’s Gothica to the mix.
Not to be messed up with the crappy Halle Berry movie Gothika, Gothica features a stable of our favorite literary horror characters, from Dorian Gray to Victor Frankenstein, Dracula, and others. It’s moving faster than Penny Dreadful, a similar sounding project at Showtime, and has found its Dorian Gray, Victor Frankenstein and “Grace” Van Helsing.

“Maybe I was straitjacketing myself because even back when I was doing Tulsa or Teenage Lust, I wouldn't go see movies about teenagers. I wouldn't look at books if they were about teenagers, because I was afraid that either I would be influenced or that someone had already done something that I had done, or someone was doing it better. I was just afraid to look at anything, because I didn't want any ideas. I don't know why, but I didn't. Just frightened. Scared to death.”
“I am a complete man, having both sexes of the mind.”
When you have nothing, the very wise Luc Moullet tells us, you should cultivate relentless artifice. These days, Larry Clark is almost there, down to one thing: Marfa, a bitty town in Texas. And Marfa has been oft blessed, first just obliquely by Edna Ferber, then harder by George Stevens, »
