The Big Bang Theory star Johnny Galecki has signed on for a lead role in Paramount's horror sequel Rings, which is set 13 years after the events of the studio's 2002 thriller The Ring. In what is described as a massive departure from his role as nerdy scientist Leonard on CBS' The Big Bang Theory, Johnny Galecki is portraying Gabriel, a "handsome, pleasure-seeking professor" who mentors the young couple Julia (Matilda Lutz) and Holt (Alex Roe). Production is already under way on Rings in Atlanta.
The story centers on Holt and Julia, whose relationship begins to deteriorate after Holt watches a mysterious VHS tape. We reported yesterday that the character Aidan Keller from both The Ring and The Ring Two will be back in this sequel as an adult, but it isn't known if David Dorfman, who is now 22 years old, will reprise his role from the first two movies.

Judging from the evidence in “Danny Says,” there’s probably an incredibly juicy thousand-page memoir waiting for historied rock gadfly Danny Fields to get it on paper. As he may never get around to that, we’ll have to settle for those anecdotes doled out in Brendan Toller’s documentary, which are no less fascinating for seeming like the tip of a personal-lore iceberg. A colorful figure attracted to “crazy people” and envelope-pushing music, Fields seems to have been nearly everywhere any self-respecting hipster would have wanted to be between about 1962 and 1978. That this highly entertaining screen memoir doesn’t even bother mentioning anything he’s done since then is a tad curious, but there’s no doubt that its period of scrutiny proves so rewarding that “Danny Says” should have little trouble attracting specialty theatrical, broadcast and home-format sales in various territories.
Fields was born Daniel Henry Feinberg in 1939 Brooklyn, »
