22 September 2014 4:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The final season of "Strike Back" has the potential for even more bad-assery than usual, based on the just-announced guest cast.

Nick Frost Tops Doctor Who Christmas Special Guest List

19 September 2014 12:01 PM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Confirming recently circulating rumors, the BBC announced today that Nick Frost will guest-star in this year’s Doctor Who Christmas special.

Nick comments: “I’m so thrilled to have been asked to guest in the Doctor Who Christmas special, I’m such a fan of the show. The read-through was very difficult for me; I wanted to keep stuffing my fingers into my ears and scream “No spoilers!” Every day on set I’ve had to silence my internal fan boy squeals!”

Nick’s frequent partner in crime Simon Pegg appeared in the Eccleston adventure The Long Game as the Editor of Satellite Five, and servant of the Mighty Jagrafess of the Editor-in-Chief, the Holy Hadrojassic Maxarodenfoe (And yes, I used cut and paste, there’s none of us perfect). Other members of the Pegg / Frost / Edgar Wright repertory company who have appeared on the series include Michael Smiley in »

‘Outcast’ Trailer: Nicolas Cage is the White Ghost with a bloody sword

22 August 2014 5:22 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) Nicolas Cage films bring with them a certain level of excitement. Not so much because fans expect Oscar-worthy material, but because the actor offers performance that range from “intense” to “completely bonkers.” It’s too early to tell where "Outcast" falls, but the trailer certainly shows him doing his thing while wielding a sword and playing the reluctant teacher for Hayden Christensen and Yifei Liu. Cage plays a former Crusader living in the woods who winds up helping Christensen to protect Liu’s young brother, who’s supposed to be the next emperor. "Outcast" is directed by Nick Powell based on a script by James Dormer (Strike Back). This marks Powell’s directorial debut after working for years in stunts. The film is scheduled to hit theaters on Feb. 27, 2015. »

Nic Cage is Unintentionally Hilarious in 'Outcast' Trailer

21 August 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

It's almost hard to believe Nicolas Cage only has 71 films to his credit (not including those in pre-production) on IMDb. It seems like every time I turn around there's a new one to discuss and this trailer for Outcast boy do I have a doozy of a storyline for you. Here Nicolas Cage plays Arken, a mysterious warrior -- "I am the White Ghost!" -- who teams up with the daughter and son of a deposed Chinese Emperor to defeat their cruel Uncle, who seeks their deaths. Hayden Christensen and Yifei Liu co-star with stuntman-turned-director Nick Powell at the helm and a screenplay from James Dormer ("Strike Back"). The accent Cage is putting on here is hilarious and I guess this one also answers that age old question: "Whatever happened to Hayden Christensenc" Come to think of it, wouldn't it have been better if this was set in present day »

15 August 2014 8:44 PM, PDT | BuzzFocus.com | See recent BuzzFocus.com news »

Strike Back may be delayed until 2015, but Cinemax is giving fans a little tease on the upcoming season. In this behind-the-scenes look at the final season of Strike Back, we see Stonebridge (Philip Winchester) and Scott (Sullivan Stapleton) take on Thailand. Needless to say, there’s lots of bullets and bodies in this video as well as some of that patented Strike Back humor we’ve come to love over the past few seasons.

Although this August will be Strike Back-less, we’ll be rewatching the past few seasons to wet our palette for 2015. »

TV on Tap: “Strike Back” Delayed, FX Infected by a Vampire “Strain” and “Constantine” Seeks New Female Lead

Nominations for the Emmys were announced yesterday and that means it was time for Orphan Black fans to cry, “Why do we make jokes about the Golden Globes’ credibility when they at least had the good sense to notice Tatiana Maslany?” (Among many, many other snubs). The Hollywood Reporter‘s Tim Goodman argues that the Emmys should expand to include more nominees in each category to “reflect the magnitude of the industry.”

TVLine reports that while there’s no hope for the original How I Met Your Dad pilot, a series is still being developed and could see a new pilot being made with the original cast, a new cast or a mix.
