After making his film debut at just 12 years of age in 1990's Lord of the Flies, James Badge Dale returned to the craft with a string of roles in the early 2000s, appearing on 24 as Chase Edmunds, Rescue Me as Timo Gavin, and The Black Donnellys as Samson. He had a breakout year in 2010, starring in the HBO mini-series The Pacific and the brilliant but short-lived AMC show Rubicon, which lead to impressive turns in The Conspirator, Shame, The Grey, and Flight. This versatile actor returns to the big screen once again in Iron Man 3 as the villainous Eric Savin a.k.a. Coldblood, the Extremis-enhanced soldier who does the dirty work for Guy Pearce's Aldrich Killian. I recently had the chance to speak with James Badge Dale about his bad-ass bald look, »
James Badge Dale has been having one helluva year and it's not stopping anytime soon. He can currently be seen as Guy Pearce's hot-tempered henchman in Iron Man 3. Next he'll be staring down the apocalypse alongside Brad Pitt in World War Z. And then after that he'll be seen as the title character's older brother in The Lone Ranger. The man's got one helluva agent, it seems. It also doesn't hurt that he's immensely talented and, for this writer's money, one of the coolest actors of his generation. The man steals scenes no matter how small the role or how big the cast around him (just look at The Departed, Flight and The Grey for evidence of that), and he can anchor complex TV shows (he was tremendous on HBO's The Pacific and...

A few casting stories to share this afternoon. Briefly: Chris Pine will be reuniting with his Smokin Aces director Joe Carnahan on the low-budget comedic thriller Stretch opposite Patrick Wilson. Homeland star and Broadway veteran Mandy Patinkin has been set in the role of Zach Braff’s father in Braff’s partially Kickstarter-funded directorial effort Wish I Was Here. Lust, Caution stars Wei Tang and Leehom Wang have boarded Michael Mann’s untitled cyber thriller starring Chris Hemsworth. Hit the jump for more on the aforementioned projects. Though Star Trek Into Darkness opens domestically this weekend, star Chris Pine certainly isn’t above taking on a smaller role in another film. The Wrap reports that Pine will appear in a cameo capacity in The Grey director Joe Carnahan’s next film, the low-budget actioner Stretch. In keeping with the limousine trend as of late (Holy Motors, Cosmopolis), Patrick Wilson stars »

A long, long time ago, before Chris Pine was Captain Kirk, he had a very different kind of role; one of the three psychotic Tremor Brothers (alongside Kevin Durand and Maury Sterling), "Mad Max"-like neo-Nazis who stole the show in Joe Carnahan's fun-on-paper, less-so-in-practice "Smokin' Aces." The film didn't make much of an impact, and many forget that Pine was even in, but he clearly made an impression on the director; Carnahan wanted to cast Pine alongside George Clooney in his film version of James Ellroy's "White Jazz" (and in his Escobar movie "Killing Pablo") only to be foiled when Pine was cast in J.J. Abrams' "Star Trek" reboot. Neither of Carnahan's pictures ever came together, but with the filmmaker coming off the strong reviews of "The Grey," and Pine about to top up his stardom with this week's "Star Trek Into Darkness," the two are finally set to reteam, »

The Fall TV Season presentations for all the new network shows take place this week with the first announced today. Here's a full breakdown of which concepts have made the final list over on NBC.
The Peacock did not have a good year. Only one of its new shows, "Revolution," was a true hit. Another, "Chicago Fire," got renewed by the skin of its teeth whilst the fate of a third, "Hannibal," remains uncertain.
None of last year's new comedies survived, neither did two mid-season dramas, which leaves the network with some big holes to fill. Three dramas and three comedies will debut in the Fall ahead of three more dramas and two comedies mid-season. Two further dramas and a comedy are presently unscheduled.
Several other pilots didn't make the final cut and won't become series including the high-profile Charlize Theron-produced drama about the Hatfields and McCoys, the Bruckheimer-produced »

Take a look at a complete preview of the shows coming your way, and mark your calendars. It looks good for NBC this year, and while I’m not sure all of these look like winners, I think you’ll find at least a couple that you’re really going to like.
Blacklist – Fall
The Blacklist — (Photo by: NBC)
For decades, ex-government agent Raymond “Red” Reddington (James Spader) has been one of the FBI’s most wanted fugitives. Brokering shadowy deals for criminals across the globe, Red was known by many as “The Concierge of Crime.”
Now, he’s mysteriously surrendered to the FBI with an explosive offer: he will help catch a long-thought-dead terrorist, Ranko Zamani, »

The "Office" alum and longtime "Boston Legal" star returns to the spotlight on the Peacock network and this time, instead of upholding the law (albeit via blackmail, bribery and the like), he's breaking it. In NBC's upcoming series "The Blacklist," Spader stars as Raymond “Red” Reddington, the most wanted man in the world.
Check out Spader and his devilish ways below in NBC's new four-minute trailer for "The Blacklist", as well as two new preview clips, and scroll down for more previews and official descriptions of the new series on NBC's 2013-2014 schedule: the “Ironside" remake starring Blair Underwood, the new Mike O'Malley comedy "Welcome To The Family," Sean Hayes' return to sitcoms with "Sean Saves The World," and, of course, the highly-anticipated "Michael J. Fox Show."

Chicago – When you’re in as much of a ratings struggle as NBC, it makes sense to shake things up and that’s exactly what they’re doing in the Fall with a new show or an old show in a new time every single night of the week. “Chicago Fire,” “Revolution,” “The Biggest Loser,” “Parks and Recreation,” and “Parenthood” are moving. “Community” is being held until a midseason, 13-episode run. No decision yet made on “Celebrity Apprentice” or “Hannibal,” which isn’t that surprising as they are mid-season shows anyway although it shouldn’t give fans of either program confidence as NBC announced a midseason schedule as well and they’re not on it. Anything could still happen with either program however and they could be held as replacements for shows that fail. That may be the best shot for “Hannibal” fans now. The best new show on the »

NBC added one comedy and two more dramas to its 2013-14 roster, all from Sony Pictures TV.
Drama “Blacklist” has major heat. It centers on a white-collar criminal who turns himself in and offers to give up others. “Night Shift” is a medical drama set in a San Antonio hospital.
Here are the descriptions:
Parents Dan Yoder (Mike O’Malley, “Glee,” “My Name Is Earl”) and wife Karina (Mary McCormack, “In Plain Sight,” “The West Wing”) find out on the day their daughter Molly (Ella Rae Peck, (“Deception,” “Gossip Girl”) is graduating from high school with an acceptance to college, »

An update to a project we first alerted you to over a year ago, in February 2012. Danny Glover stars in the indie feature project titled Supremacy, based on a true story about a recently-paroled white supremacist who, "after killing a police officer, takes an African American family hostage." The film is directed by Deon Taylor, whose most recent and maybe most prominent work was the 2010 indie horror/thriller titled Chain Letter. Derek Luke, Evan Ross, Lela Rochon, Joe Anderson (The Grey, The River) and Dawn Olivieri (she plays Don Cheadle's ex-wife on Showtime's House Of Lies) round out the cast, »

Annie: Jamie Foxx may play a “variation” on Daddy Warbucks in the upcoming musical adaptation Annie. Young Academy Award-nominated actress Quvenzhane Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild) is already set to play the titlular role of a little orphan girl for producers Will Smith and Jay-z. If the negotiations are successful, Foxx would be singing on-screen for the first time since 2006’s Dreamgirls. [The Hollywood Reporter] Sugar Bandits: Filmmaker Joe Carnahan, who scored a one-two action punch with The A-Team and The Grey a couple of years ago but has since seen other potential projects such as Daredevil fall through, is now in talks to direct Sugar Bandits, based on a novel by Chuck Hogan (The Town, adapted into Ben Affleck’s movie). The story revolves...

The Grey director Joe Carnahan is in talks to direct a big screen adaptation of Chuck Hogan's book Devils in Exile. The film will be called Sugar Bandits, and the author of the book also adapted the screenplay.
The story follows "an Iraq war vet named Neal Maven who is facing dead-end jobs and small futures in Boston. When he and some other soldiers team up in a scheme to rip off local drug dealers for profit, he soon finds his life in jeopardy. Doesn't help that he ends up sleeping with his employer's girlfriend, either."
This seems like a good project for Carnahan, who's also directed film like Smokin' Aces and The A-Team. His directing style should be a good fit for the adaptation. Hogan also wrote The Town, which Ben Affleck directed, as well as co-authored The Strain with Guillermo del Toro.

Though “The Grey” director Joe Carnahan is generally regarded as purveyor of all things gritty and testosterone-fueled, that doesn't mean his luck with launching projects is always golden. His darker “Daredevil” and “Gemini Man” sizzle reels remained just that, and casting disputes with Paramount led him off the “Death Wish” remake, but we'll see how his chances fare with a new project that similarly suits his distinctive style. THR reports Carnahan is in talks with Universal to direct “Sugar Bandits,” an adaptation of the novel "Devils In Exile" by “The Strain” author Chuck Hogan (who also penned the script). Produced under Marc Shmuger and Tom McNulty's Global Produce label, the film follows an Iraq War veteran struggling with life back in Boston, who then assembles a team of like-minded soldiers to rip off the scores of drug dealers around town. Besides just screaming Carnahan's name, the story »

Despite giving us an excellent film with The Grey, Joe Carnahan hasn’t had the easiest time getting his next movie off the ground. First, he was trying to remake Death Wish, but due to some struggles, he ended up walking away from the project. Then, he had big plans for an R-rated spin on Daredevil, which like Death Wish, fell apart. Now, he’s set his sights on Sugar Bandits, an adaptation of the novel Devils in Exile, written by Chuck Hogan.
If you haven’t read the book, check out the plot summary below:
When Neal Maven and a crew of fellow Iraq War veterans begin ripping off Boston-area drug dealers for profit, their lives are quickly put into jeopardy. As Maven’s involvement deepens, two worrisome things happen: he begins to suspect that their leader has a sinister ulterior motive, and he lusts after the leader’s »

"Papa" Joe Carnahan has faced a weird, long road since he released the critically-acclaimed drama The Grey back in January of last year. First there were his plans to direct a remake of Death Wish, but that fell apart because the filmmaker didn't want to cast Bruce Willis in the lead role. Then there were his plans to reboot the Marvel Comics character Daredevil at 20th Century Fox, but that project couldn't get together fast enough and the rights to the man without fear reverted back to Marvel Studios. We've also heard stories about Stretch with Patrick Wilson, the action flick Continue, and the adaptation of Undying Love, but it's been hard to say exactly what direction he was heading. And today yet another movie has entered the picture. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Carnahan is close to signing yet another deal, this time to direct an adaptation of the »
The story centers on Neal Maven, an Iraq War veteran who is having a hard time finding work after the war in his hometown of Boston. He teams up with a group of fellow veterans, who rob drug dealers for their money, while destroying the illegal drugs at the same time. The novel was published by Scribner in 2010.
It's been a seemingly troublesome year for The Grey director Joe Carnahan. After once being attached to a remake of Death Wish, Carnahan stepped away from the project when casting a lead actor proved to be a bit of a struggle and now Miss Bala director Gerardo Naranjo is in talks to take over the project. And late last summer, his plans for an R-rated take on Daredevil fell apart and now Fox has the rights to the comic book hero (which might give him a second chance). But now THR says Carnahan has set his sights on a new project called Sugar Bandits, an adaptation of Chuck Hogan's novel Devils in Exile set up at Universal. Here's the official synopsis of the book: When Neal Maven and a crew of fellow Iraq War veterans begin ripping off Boston-area drug dealers for profit, their lives are quickly put into jeopardy. »
