‘Marvel’s Inhumans’ ABC Series Casts ‘Lost’ Alum as Karnak

‘Marvel’s Inhumans’ ABC Series Casts ‘Lost’ Alum as Karnak
Ken Leung has been cast in ABC’s “Marvel’s Inhumans,” Variety has learned. The “Lost” alum will play Karnak, based on the character from the comics.

“Marvel’s Inhumans” will explore the never-before-told epic adventure of the royal family including Black Bolt, the enigmatic, commanding king of the Inhumans, with a voice so powerful that the slightest whisper can destroy a city.

Leung’s character Karnak is Black Bolt’s cousin and closest advisor. His gift is an ability to see the fault in all things — people, plans, structures, everything. He’s Black Bolt’s most ardent supporter and strategist and is often seen as the royal family’s planner and philosopher.

“Ken brings both a wisdom and a power to the role that no one else could match. His Karnak will be awesome,” said Marvel head of television and executive producer, Jeph Loeb.

MacGyver TV Pilot Adds Addison Timlin And Michelle Krusiec

When it comes to figuring out why spy series MacGyver is getting a TV reboot, your guess is as good as mine, but today brings some news about what it’s going to look like, in the form of two cast additions.

Addison Timlin, known best for Californication but most familiar to this writer as the love interest for Anton Yelchin in Stephen Sommers’ under-appreciated Odd Thomas, has boarded the CBS project in the lead female role. She’s playing Mickey, an app developer who’s aggressively progressive in her political views but harbors a soft spot for Lucas Till’s MacGyver. Meanwhile, Michelle Krusiec (Hawaii Five-o) will play Agent Croix, who works for the Department of Homeland Security and is sister to a character named Lincoln (George Eads).

'Prison Break' Reboot Event Series in the Works

Can't get enough Wentworth Miller from your standard television diet? Well fret not! In addition to the upcoming series, "DC's Legends of Tomorrow," Fox has now confirmed that they are hard at work at a "Prison Break" reboot event series. Very much in the vein of 2014's "24: Live Another Day," the word "event" seems to indicate a one-time return to a much-beloved series.

For those unfamiliar to the original mid-2000s series, "Prison Break" followed Wentworth Miller's character Michael Scofield, who purposely got himself sent to prison in order to free his wrongfully-accused brother. The series lasted four seasons, and was a perfect companion piece to "24," and it was one of the early examples of American serialized TV before it completely dominated in more recent years.

So far, the details as to what the plot of the series will entail are limited, but according the press release, the juicy details will follow soon.

Trevor Rabin’s Rousing Scores a Testament to Life After Yes

Trevor Rabin’s Rousing Scores a Testament to Life After Yes
Trevor Rabin had no idea that, on Nov. 4, 2008, he was about to be immortalized.

Barack Obama had just been elected president of the United States, and as he finished his acceptance speech, the music that began to play was Rabin’s inspirational theme from the football movie “Remember the Titans.”

For a white South African whose family fought against apartheid when it was not just unfashionable but downright dangerous, this prominent showcase of his music — written for a movie about black and white high-school players learning to get along and win the season — was especially meaningful.

“I was happy I was on the winning ticket,” Rabin says with a laugh.

Yet that’s just one moment in a long, strange trip that began in Johannesburg and ended in Hollywood, where Rabin is now an in-demand film composer with no fewer than 13 Jerry Bruckheimer movies under his belt (including “Titans,” “Armageddon

Review: ABC's 'The Whispers' offers creepy kids and little more
As director and producer, few storytellers have utilized the wonderment and fascination (and sometimes horror) of children as points-of-entry into the wonderment and fascination of the adult world more effectively than Steven Spielberg has.  Conversely, Spielberg has also masterfully used the normalized responses of children to the abnormal as an approach to disarm world-weary grown-ups.  From Cary Guffey in "Close Encounters" to Henry Thomas and Drew Barrymore in "E.T." to Heather O'Rourke in "Poltergeist" to Christian Bale in "Empire of the Sun" to Haley Joel Osment in "A.I." to Dakota Fanning in "Taken" and "War of the Worlds," Spielberg has always know that there's something pure and primal in the reactions of children and that those reactions can be used to steer the reactions viewers of all ages. Steven Spielberg is one of the executive producers of ABC's new "the kids are not alright" drama "The Whispers," but his participation

The Whispers Review: Kids Hear the Darndest Things

In Ray Bradbury’s short story “Zero Hour,” children from across the country become involved in a game called “Invasion.” Like most things kids are into, the parents think it’s harmlessly benign … until the invasion actually occurs. ABC’s The Whispers, produced by Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Television, plays off of the same setup. Once again, the parents think the imaginary friend their child has (despite the worrisome name “Drill”) is all part of their fun and games. Until the kids start killing. ABC’s The Whispers is, for the most part, a fairly rote entry into a TV landscape already clogged with series about mysterious symbols, military conspiracies, possible alien involvement, and an overall question that may never be satisfyingly answered (the show’s creator, Soo Hugh, is also a producer for Under the Dome and was a writer for the short-lived, truly insane series Zero Hour).

Upfronts: USA Network Grabs ‘SmackDown,’ Loads Up on Scripted Development

USA Network is doubling down on WWE, bringing “SmackDown” over from Syfy next year as part of an effort to hike the volume of live programming on NBCUniversal’s flagship entertainment cabler.

The move of “SmackDown,” a slew of development projects, new programs featuring the Chrisley clan and summer scheduling announcements were unveiled Tuesday morning at USA Network’s press upfront gathering held at 30 Rock’s Rainbow Room.

USA Network president Chris McCumber made it clear in his presentation that the cabler is shifting the focus of its original programming to court a millennial audience. He noted that the generational shift of millennials now making up the largest component of the 18-49 audience is well under way. USA’s new shows are built around stories and characters that exhibit “bravery, optimism, self-reliance and hope” — all themes that resonate with millennials, per McCumber.

'Selma' Biopic Adds Carmen Ejogo as Martin Luther King Jr.'s Wife

'Selma' Biopic Adds Carmen Ejogo as Martin Luther King Jr.'s Wife
Carmen Ejogo is in talks to play Martin Luther King Jr.'s wife Coretta Scott King in the upcoming biopic Selma.

David Oyelowo is set to play Martin Luther King Jr., with Tom Wilkinson starring as U.S. President Lyndon Johnson in this drama that details the 1965 march from Selma, Alabama to the state capitol of Montgomery where African-American citizens tried to secure their voting rights, only to be beaten back by the police. It took three attempts for the rally to get off the ground, because the marcher's numbers kept increasing each time. Coretta Scott King, who married Martin Luther King Jr. in 1956, was a part of the march with her husband during the Selma Voting Rights Movement.

Ava DuVernay (Middle of Nowhere) is directing from a script she co-wrote with Paul Webb. Lee Daniels had once been attached to direct, but he is no longer involved in the project.
