The lovely and talented Lake Bell has been a mainstay of film and television for over a decade, stealing scenes in films like "No Strings Attached" and on television series such as "Childrens Hospital" and "How to Make it in America." This week she's an average girl out for a weekend of fun who finds herself in a battle for survival in the indie thriller "Black Rock."
We had an exclusive 1-on-1 with Bell to discuss shooting a film without bathrooms, girl talk during life or death situations, her directorial debut "In a World ... " and her continuing quest to one day play Wonder Woman.
Was the shoot for "Black Rock" as isolated as it looks? Were you guys confined to this island location?
We shot in Milbridge, Maine, which is an incredibly tiny town. Not only is it really tiny but we were sequestered to the girl's cabin and then »

• Michael Fassbender (Shame) is attached to play the title role in a film update of Macbeth, William Shakespeare’s classic tragedy about a scheming nobleman intent on ruling Scotland. The play has been adapted for the big screen a number of times, including Orson Welles’ 1948 version in which he also played the character of Macbeth, and Roman Polanski’s 1971 version which starred Jon Finch.

Katie Aselton's new survival thriller 'Black Rock' is heading to the Us next month and will land simultaneously on VOD and into selected theatres on 17 May. So thankfully at least the previous, and unimaginative, poster released has been one-upped by this new modern and more minimalistic example which borrows heavily from the iconic 'Jaws' poster artwork. Director Aselton also stars in front of the camera alongside fellow hotties Kate Bosworth ('Straw Dogs') and Lake Bell ('Childrens Hospital') and also with Alana Costello, Jay Paulson and Anslem Richardson. Check out the new poster below. »

Go the Fuck to Sleep is a brilliant picture book for grown-ups. How it'll be transformed into a full-length film isn't entirely clear, but Party Down's Ken Marino and Erica Oyama (a writer on Childrens Hospital and Burning Love; married to Marino) are on the case. We already know Charlize Theron reads the book to her young son, so there's a head start for casting. »

Once upon a time a cutely illustrated, explicitly written “children’s book for adults” burst onto the scene. Adam Mansbach’s ode to parents who can’t get their children to, well, go the f–k to sleep, was a bestseller before it was even available (under the “advice” category on the New York Times list).

Guys With Kids and Childrens Hospital co-star Erinn Hayes will play the female lead in NBC‘s comedy pilot Holding Patterns. She replaces Chyler Leigh who was originally cast in the role. Holding Patterns is an ensemble multi-camera comedy about a group of friends whose lives completely change after they survive a plane crash, caused by Leah (Hayes) ruining Griffin’s (Humphrey Ker) proposal dinner. For Hayes, the casting is in second position to Guys With Kids, which is at the same network and studio, NBC/Universal TV. Because of her relationship with NBC and Uni TV, Hayes was asked to step in for Leigh, who was out of town and under the weather, for the pilot’s table read. Ultimately, during rehearsals, NBC brass concluded that Leigh is not how they envisioned the Leah character. This is the second recasting on Holding Patterns, which also replaced Robert Buckley with Nelson Franklin. »

David Krumholtz has found a new onscreen bestie. (Sorry, Louis.)
Krumholtz will play a very close pal to Ellie Kemper‘s Brenda, a 31-year-old who does her own thing. He’ll appear as a guest star in the pilot; if the project goes to series, there’s a good chance he’ll be back.

Childrens Hospital‘s Rob Huebel is set to star opposite Patrick Warburton in CBS/Sony TV’s comedy pilot Jacked Up. Written by Greg Malins and directed by Fred Savage, it centers on Jack (Warburton), a beloved, recently retired baseball player who sets out to find a new purpose in life…starting with finding a wife with the help of his energetic and lovable best friend Barry (Huebel), the divorced owner of the local sports bar. This marks the second pilot for Huebel, repped by UTA, Principato-Young and Karl Austen. He also has a guest star/potential recurring role in ABC’s comedy Bad Management. On the feature side, he starred in Hell Baby, which premiered at Sundance and was sold to Millennium Entertainment. Stand-up comedian Griffin Newman is set as a lead opposite another comedian, John Mulaney, in Mulaney’s untitled multi-camera NBC comedy pilot, from Lorne Michaels, 3 Arts and Universal TV. »

One of my favorite things to do when a show comes to a conclusion – whether natural or forced – is to track what happens to the stars afterward, seeing what jobs they might be interested in. With Private Practice over and done with, Kate Walsh has been getting plenty of pilot offers, which isn’t much of a surprise. What might surprise some of you is she’s getting more than enough comedy pilot offers. In fact, NBC is zeroing in on her as we speak for the lead role in its comedy pilot produced by none other than Will Ferrell via his and Adam McKay’s Gary Sanchez Prods, as well as Anne Heche. Now, doesn’t that just seem like an unlikely combination of individuals?
It’s actually not that out of the ordinary when you pull back for a second and look at things from a different vantage point. »

Happy Days vet Marion Ross has been cast in the season finale of ABC’s Wednesday-night comedy as the vice principal of Brick’s elementary school — and yes, she’ll be having a run-in with the Heck family’s idiosyncratic youngest child.

If CBS head honcho Les Moonves is to be believed (which, let’s be honest, he is), Dexter will really, truly wrap its eight-season run this summer.
The corporation’s president and CEO seemingly spilled the beans during a conference call Monday, per Broadcasting & Cable, when he referred to the Showtime saga’s upcoming outing as its “last.”

Patricia Cornwall went on Katie yesterday with her partner to discuss how she was cheated out of millions by her financial management company. I learned a lot about Pat's "lavish lifestyle" as they kept saying.
Carrie Brownstein watches The Bachelor, which is apparently a favorite show among many a queer woman I know. Maybe I need to start getting in on that Bachelor bracket my friends have.

It’s pilot season, which means your favorite out-of-work TV actors, actresses, creators and writers are getting a chance to return to the small screen once more.
Although we have yet to know what new series we’ll see next year, the networks have been busy selecting projects to consider for their schedules. So far, almost 100 scripts have been chosen, and audiences will only get to see a handful actually come to fruition.
Several are duds, but there are a few promising prospects that I hope network executives will keep around for the 2013-2014 season — even if it means they have to cancel old favorites to make room (just keep Parks and Recreation, Ok, NBC?).
Check out my choices for the best prospective ABC and Fox pilots, and read my selections for NBC and CBS if you missed them yesterday:

Is 2013 going to be the year of Ken Marino? Well, no, according to the Chinese zodiac it’s actually the year of the snake. But the Wet Hot American Summer star and Childrens Hospital actor-writer does have a lot of upcoming projects, including the second season of his dating show parody Burning Love — which debuts on February 14 — the Lake Bell-directed, Sundance-screened In a World…, and the comedy-horror film Milo, which will premiere at next month’s SXSW Film Festival.
