17 December 2010 7:44 PM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Reid Scott, Tim Simons and Matt Walsh have joined the cast of HBO's comedy pilot Veep starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus. The Washington, D.C.-set project, from British comedian, writer and director Armando Iannucci, centers on former Senator Selina Meyer (Louis-Dreyfus) who becomes Vice President. Former My Boys co-star Scott will play Dan Egan, a DC legend. Simons will play Jonah who works in the President's office, and Walsh will play Mike, Meyer's spokesman. The trio join previously cast Anna Chlumsky. Reid, repped by Gersh and Impression Entertainment, has recurred heavily on Showtime's The Big C as Laura Linney's hot oncologist. After heavily recurring on CBS' Blue Bloods this season, Amy Carlson, who plays Donnie Wahlberg's wife, is poised to become a regular if the cop family drama is picked up for a second season, something that is widely expected. Carlson, repped by Domain and Principal Entertainment, will next be seen in Green Lantern. »

'All Signs Of Death' A No-Go At HBO

8 December 2010 4:00 PM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

HBO has opted not to go forward with All Signs of Death, its dark comedic drama pilot based on Charlie Huston’s 2009 crime noir novel The Mystic Arts of Erasing All Signs of Death. The project, which was picked up to pilot in July, was written by Huston, with Ball directing and executive producing. Word is HBO brass ultimately couldn't find a spot for the show. All Signs, which experimented with smaller, portable cameras for a cinema verite style, centers on an inveterate twenty-something slacker (Ben Whishaw) who stumbles into a career as a crime scene cleaner, only to find himself entangled with a murder mystery, a femme fatale and the loose ends of his own past. All Signs joins another 2010 HBO pilot, Miraculous Year, which didn't go to series. Of the rest of the pay cable network's 2010 crop of pilots, Michael Mann/David Milch collaboration Luck has already been ordered to series. »

ABC's 'Happy Endings' casts comedian Tj Miller to guest star; 'Glee' extends London stay

3 December 2010 4:24 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Just when you thought your Friday couldn't get any better, here's some TV snacks.

We've exclusively learned that ABC's "Happy Endings" has brought on comedian and actor Tj Miller ("How To Train Your Dragon," "She's Out of My League"), pictured left, to guest star as an old friend of the gang, Shershow. He used to be a mess, but when they attend his wedding they find out that he has gotten his life together. The gang (which includes "24's" Eliza Cuthbert and Zachary Knighton) then start to question if their own lives are that "together." The midseason pilot has yet to get a premiere date. [Zap2it Exclusive]

The recently announced "Glee" European tour is selling out quickly, so to satisfy as many British gleeks as possible, Fox announces an additional two shows will be played at London's O2 Arena on June 28 and 29, 2011. Still no word on a North American leg, but co-creator »

True Blood Promotes Jessica Tuck to Series Regular; Julia Louis-Dreyfus is Veep for HBO; Miranda Otto Joins Locke & Key

23 November 2010 10:28 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

As HBO works on the upcoming fourth season of their hit vampire series True Blood, one recurring cast member just got promoted to series regular while three more ladies have also joined the cast. Deadline reports Jessica Tuck (who plays Nan Flannigan) will now be a series regular on the HBO drama along with Janina Gavankar who will play Luna, a super-sexy public school teacher and shapeshifter who is first seen attending an informal gathering with others like her. Someone should start a pool to figure out how long into her debut we’ll see her naked. In addition, Alexandra Brecekenridge (Dirt) and Vedette Lim (As the World Turns) have joined the series as recurring characters. Brecekenridge will play Daisy, a member of a wiccan group founded by Marnie (who we found out will be played by Fiona Shaw) while Lim will play Naomi, a fierce fighter who participates in underground cage matches for money. »

Morning Meme: "Glee" Casting News, Joss Whedon Reacts To "Buffy" Reboot, and Matthew Mitcham Gets Poked

23 November 2010 5:46 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Early reviews of Elling, starring Denis O’Hare, are not particularly kind. It finds O’Hare twitchy, and complains that his costar Brendan Fraser bellows every line. Complaining of a lack of subtlety from Brendan Fraser seems a bit like complaining that water is wet.

That really creepy looking The Nutcracker in 3D that I showed you? It cost $90 million to make, making it the most expensive independent film ever produced.

We mentioned that Julia Louis-Dreyfus was thinking about starring in HBO’s comedy Veep, about a Midwestern Senator who becomes Vice President only to find out the job isn’t what she expected. Now it’s official.

Netflix is going to charge more to mail you DVDs. But the U.S. is finally getting a cheap streaming only plan. That’s enough to make me sign up. Assuming I had time to watch TV.

'Miraculous Year' Not Going Forward At HBO

9 November 2010 2:11 PM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Exclusive: HBO has opted not to proceed with John Logan's hourlong pilot The Miraculous Year, which was directed by Kathryn Bigelow. I hear that the appeal of the project -- an exploration into a high-powered New York family: a self-destructive Broadway composer (Norbert Leo Butz), his powerful painter father Alex (Frank Langella) and his attorney sister Mandy Vance (Hope Davis) -- was probably too narrow. The cast of the pilot also included Eddie RedmayneLinus Roache and Patti LuPone as well as guest stars Susan Sarandon and Lee Pace. HBO has had a busy pilot pickup year starting with the Michael Mann/David Milch collaboration Luck, which has already been ordered to series. The Diane Keaton starrer Tilda is still awaiting word while backup scripts are being written and reshoots on the pilot are being done. HBO's recent pilot orders include the Justin Theroux/Steve Coogan comedy Documental, Armando Iannucci's comedy Veep, »

HBO Orders Justin Theroux/Steve Coogan Comedy Pilot Exec Produced By Ben Stiller

3 November 2010 6:06 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Exclusive: The Tropic Thunder gang is reuniting, this time on television. HBO has greenlighted Documental, a half-hour comedy pilot written and to be directed by Thunder co-writer/executive producer Justin Theroux. Theroux will star in the project with Thunder co-star, British comedian/writer/producer Steve Coogan. The two will executive produce with Thunder director/co-writer/producer Ben Stiller as well as Paul Simms, who serves as a consulting producer on the HBO comedy Bored to Death, and 3 Arts' Michael Rotenberg and Nick Frenkel. Stiller's producer partner Stuart Cornfeld at Red Hour Films, who also was a producer on Thunder, will serve as consultant on Documental, which had been in the works at HBO for awhile. The pilot, which will film in London, stars Theroux as a documentary filmmaker who tracks down his idol, an equally inept filmmaker (Coogan), and documents his return to his craft. The pickup comes on the »
