Gillian Anderson joins Hannibal

15 December 2012 2:06 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After spending the last few years appearing in British offerings such as Bleak House, Any Human Heart, The Crimson Petal and the White and Great Expectations, Gillian Anderson is set to return to American network television next year, with Entertainment Weekly revealing that The X-Files star has been cast in Bryan Fuller's upcoming series Hannibal.

Anderson will feature in a multi-episode arc as Dr. Bedelia Du Maurier, the personal therapist of Thomas Harris' notorious serial killer Dr. Hannibal Lecter, with Mads Mikkelsen (Casino Royale, The Hunt) stepping in to the role made famous by Anthony Hopkins in 1991's The Silence of the Lambs.

"Every therapist needs their own head examined and we are ecstatic that Gillian Anderson has chosen Hannibal to mark her return to American television after 10 years to portray Dr. Lecter’s personal psychiatrist," said Fuller, who is producing the series for NBC.

Bond far from gentleman portrayed in 007: Author

12 December 2012 4:15 AM, PST | RealBollywood.com | See recent RealBollywood news »

London, Dec 12: James Bond was far from the English gent portrayed in the 007 films, but rather a more troubled, heavy-drinking character, the new Bond author claims.

Novelist William Boyd, famed for "Any Human Heart", said Bond's true character, until now, had been underplayed.

"In the films Bond is a cartoon character but in the novels he is far more troubled, nuanced and interesting," the Daily Mail Wednesday quoted Boyd as saying.

It is the clearest indication yet that the author plans to steer away from what he described as the "cartoon" portrayed on film.

The portrayal of Bond as an English toff is also flawed,. »

Rewind TV: The Fear; The Town; A Young Doctor's Notebook; The Secret Life of Rubbish; Imagine... Jeanette Winterson: My Monster and Me; Inside Claridge's – review

Peter Mullan's bravura performance wasn't enough to rescue Channel 4's incoherent four-part drama about a Brighton crime boss suffering from dementia

The Fear (C4) | 4oD

The Town (ITV1) | ITV Player

A Young Doctor's Notebook (Sky Arts 1)

The Secret Life of Rubbish (BBC4) | iPlayer

Imagine Jeanette Winterson: My Monster and Me (BBC2) | iPlayer

Inside Claridge's (BBC2) | iPlayer

The Fear ran across four consecutive nights for a total of four hours. The question is whether that was two hours or three hours too long. Those who argue that it was four hours too long have a strong case, but that would be unfair to Peter Mullan, who gave a powerful performance in difficult circumstances.

He played Richie Beckett, a Brighton crime boss with fast-moving dementia. He went from administrative incompetence to hopeless incontinence in about as much time as it would have taken him to pull his trousers down. »

Kim Cattrall returns to series TV in Canadian comedy 'Sensitive Skin'

30 October 2012 12:40 AM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Kim Cattrall is returning to series TV for the first time since "Sex and the City" ended in 2004. Cattrall will star in and executive produce an adaptation of the 2005 British comedy series "Sensitive Skin," about a woman's mid-life crisis.

The six-episode series will premiere on Canada's The Movie Network and will also be executive produced by the "Slings & Arrow" team of writer Bob Martin and director Don McKellar, according to Deadline.

Cattrall won a Golden Globe and was nominated for five Emmys for her role as Samantha Jones in HBO's "Sex and the City," and reprised the role in two feature films. Lately she's been concentrating on stage work, but also appeared in the British miniseries "Any Human Heart" and lent her voice to the Canadian animated series "Producing Parker."

The original British version of "Sensitive Skin" starred Joanna Lumley, whose role as Patsy on "Absolutely Fabulous" was something of a precursor to Samantha. »

Watch television with Russell Howard

The stand-up comedian and TV presenter on his viewing habits, from Homeland to Breaking Bad

Unmissable show?

I'm looking forward to Homeland coming back. It's one of the first things in ages where I've been waiting for each episode; I usually watch box sets. I thought the ending was frustrating but I'll definitely keep watching.

Box set?

The standards, really. Mad Men, The Wire ... The West Wing's one of my all-time favourites. I know more about the fictitious Us president than I do the real one. I haven't seen the new Sorkin one [The Newsroom] yet. He did Studio 60 On The Sunset Strip, which was good, but the problem was that the comedy in the show wasn't funny enough. If you're writing a TV comedy show yourself it's quite interesting to watch, especially when Matthew Perry's character is stressed and is using an egg timer to write bits. That side of it is fascinating, »

It’s Official – Sam Claflin Joins ‘Catching Fire’ Cast

23 August 2012 8:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Sam Claflin –  the Ipswich-born actor who has starred in the likes of Snow White And The Huntsman and Channel 4′s Any Human Heart – has been officially welcomed into the cast of The Hunger Games sequel, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

A few months ago, rumours were swirling around Hollywood that the role had gone to Twilight star Robert Pattinson, but that was not to be so. Instead, Claflin has accepted the role of Finnick Odair, who is a favourite amongst fans of the book series. Odair comes from District 4 and is a tough competitor, determined to beat off rivals Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson).

So far, Clalflin has had a varied career, featuring in everything from TV programmes to Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. However, this role could really shoot him into the limelight. It’ll also be interesting to see what he does with the character, »

Hammer's new horror The Quiet Ones starts shooting

Sam Claflin stars in The Quiet Ones, Hammer's new supernatural thriller/horror feature which started shooting today on location in Oxfordshire.

Inspired by true events, The Quiet Ones tells the story of an unorthodox but charismatic Professor (played by Jared Harris from Mad Men) who uses controversial methods and leads his best students off the grid to take part in a dangerous experiment: to create a poltergeist from negative human energy. 

25 year old Sam (represented by Independent Talent in the UK) can currently be seen playing the Prince in Universal’s Snow White and The Huntsman, starring opposite Charlize Theron and Kristen Stewart, and last year starred in Disney’s latest installment of the hit adventure fantasy franchise Pirates of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.

He'll be joined  by 18 year old Olivia Cooke »

Gillian Anderson Returns to Sci-Fi in Non-Gin Blossoms Related Film, ‘I’ll Follow You Down’

30 May 2012 4:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Though Gillian Anderson is best known for her role as Dana Scully on The X-Files, the actress is also a classically trained thespian who has used her talents in such varied fare as the Bleak House mini-series, the Royal-focused series Any Human Heart, and at least two television takes on classic material – Moby Dick and Great Expectations. What we’re saying is, she’s not just Scully, but damn if Anderson doesn’t know her way around some good sci-fi, so it’s heartening news that she’s joined a very intriguing new project with just that kind of bent. Deadline Quantico reports that Anderson has joined Haley Joel Osment, Rufus Sewell, and Victor Garber in Richie Mehta‘s (Amal) new film, I’ll Follow You Down. While we don’t yet know too much about the film (and with its mysterious logline, it’s likely to stay that way), we do know that it centers on »

TV review: Cold Chain Mission; The Voice

30 April 2012 10:56 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Ewan McGregor is nice and caring, but this hero narrative is all a bit icky

Ewan McGregor in Cold Chain Mission (Sunday, BBC2) is delivering vaccinations for deadly childhood diseases to all the kids he didn't catch in episode one. Additional drama is provided by the fact that the vaccines must be kept cold, which, journeying deep into the jungle, down a river that's like a cross between Apocalypse Now and Death on the Nile (translation: these are two films I've seen which also feature a river), is no small matter. Every leg of the journey sees him leaping from the chopper and darting into a hut to find the fridge, like the Tiger Who Came to Tea. "Right, I'm just going to freeze these ice-packs and put the vaccines in the fridge, so that when we set off again, everything really will be as cold as possible."

Booker Prize Nominee Boyd Lands Bond Book Deal

12 April 2012 1:01 AM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Booker Prize-nominated author William Boyd has been given the mission of creating the next James Bond novel.

The A Good Man in Africa writer was personally selected to pen 007's latest adventure by the estate of Bond creator Ian Fleming.

Boyd will follow in the footsteps of peers Jeffery Deaver and Sebastian Faulks, who revisited the superspy in their novels Carte Blanche and Devil May Care, respectively.

The author is refusing to give away any plot points or characters, but he has revealed his novel will be set in 1969 and published in 2013 to mark the 60th anniversary of Bond's introduction to the literary world in Casino Royale.

Boyd admits he didn't hesitate when the Fleming estate administrators asked him to write a new Bond book: "For me the prospect appeared incredibly exciting and stimulating."

A longtime fan, Boyd created a character called Ian Fleming in his 2002 novel Any Human Heart. »

William Boyd Writing Next Bond Novel

11 April 2012 5:01 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Following recent instalments by Sebastian Faulks and Jeffery Deaver, the next James Bond novel will be written by the Scottish author William Boyd. Boyd previously used Bond's creator Ian Fleming as a character in Any Human Heart, in 2002."My father introduced me to the James Bond novels in the 1960s," Boyd says, "and I read them all then, and became very intrigued by Ian Fleming the man. From Russia With Love is my favourite. When the Ian Fleming estate invited me to write the new James Bond novel I accepted at once. For me the prospect appeared incredibly exciting and stimulating. It's a once-in-a-lifetime challenge."Sebastian Faulks' Devil May Care kicked off this occasional series of new Bonds for the Fleming centenary in 2008, and Boyd's novel will mark the 60th anniversary of the publication of the first Bond novel, Casino Royale.
