'Tales from the Darkside' TV Reboot Not Happening on The CW

8 May 2015 8:30 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Sad news for horror fans! The CW has officially passed on the Tales from the Darkside revival. A reboot of the popular 80s anthology series has been in development since November 2013. It is not exactly clear why The CW passed, and it's possible that the show could move to another network or digital streaming platform.

Joe Hill, the author of Horns, Locke & Key and the son of celebrated novelist Stephen King, wrote the pilot script, while serving as an executive producer alongside Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci. The author had publicly raved about the pilot, and the revival had been gaining quite a lot of traction among fans. While the pilot is said to have been well executed, The CW was uncertain about the anthology format, even though season long anthologies have been working for FX with shows such as American Horror Story and Fargo.

Martin Freeman’s Role In Captain America: Civil War Revealed?

6 May 2015 11:05 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Yesterday, Marvel threw moviegoers a curveball with the surprise announcement that The Hobbit trilogy and Fargo star Martin Freeman has been cast in Captain America: Civil War. Details on his role were unfortunately undisclosed, but thanks to the scoop-seekers at Latino Review, we may now have an answer.

The site issued a report today saying that Freeman will be playing an interrogator in the film, and that his role will extend to Black Panther in 2018. They also note that their “informed speculation” shows that Freeman’s character will be based on Everett Ross, an agent of the United States government assigned to Wakanda – home of Black Panther and the McU’s vibranium mines – to become an expert on the African country. Seeing as Black Panther will make his big screen debut in Civil War, that makes a lot of sense.

What this also could also mean is that Freeman will become the new Agent Coulson, »

Martin Freeman joins the cast of Captain America: Civil War

5 May 2015 4:18 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Marvel has confirmed that Martin Freeman will have a role in the Age of Ultron follow-up, Captain America: Civil War, which pits Avenger against Avenger in 2016.

Freeman is perhaps best known to movie audience as Bilbo Baggins in Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit trilogy, but the bulk of his overwhelming fan following is from his portrayal of Dr. John Watson opposite Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sherlock Holmes in BBC’s modern day “Sherlock.” 

There has been no word as of yet as to whom Freeman will be playing in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We’re pretty sure Doctor Strange (Cumberbatch) doesn’t have a blogger sidekick – but I may have missed that issue.

The Emmy-winner recently starred as Lester Nygaard in television adaptation of “Fargo” to great critical acclaim, and also hosted one of the best-reviewed episodes of “Saturday Night Live” in recent memory. Freeman first gained notoriety as Tim, the »

37 People Who Have Too Many Feelings About Martin Freeman Joining the Marvel Universe

5 May 2015 3:51 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Apparently Martin Freeman is headed for total fandom domination. Imagine Benedict Cumberbatch saying that in his scariest, deepest, most intense Khan voice: Total. Fandom. Domination. Not only is he one-half of one of Tumblr's favorite ships and shows (talking about Sherlock, folks), but he's also the star of The Hobbit trilogy. And now he's officially joined another fanbase that is just as die-hard as those other ones: Marvel. The company that seems to do no wrong at the box office has announced that the Fargo star has been cast in a unknown (read: spoilery) role in next year's Captain America: Civil War.

'Hobbit' star Martin Freeman joins cast of 'Captain America: Civil War'

5 May 2015 12:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Martin Freeman has joined the cast of "Captain America: Civil War." Freeman's one of those guys who sort of bubbled along for a while, recognizable from his work on "The Office," but hardly a household name, and then all of a sudden he went nuclear. Between "Sherlock" and the "Hobbit" movies, he has become far more recognizable and culturally omnipresent in the last five years, and I'm all for it. He turns in continuously great work in everything, and I love seeing him in something like last year's "Fargo," something I would have never expected to see him in. "Captain America: Civil War" fits into that category. In typical Marvel fashion, they are playing it close to the vest as to who he is playing. I'm having a hard time picturing him as a superhero, and I'm curious to see if this is a sizable role. There are so many »

Martin Freeman Joins ‘Captain America: Civil War’

5 May 2015 11:43 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Having wrapped up his stint in Middle Earth, “Hobbit” star Martin Freeman has joined the cast of “Captain America: Civil War.”

The film is heavily anticipated among fanboys because it is expected to feature a smackdown between Captain America and Iron Man. Marvel released the news on its website, as is its habit, but did not give any specifics about what role Freeman would assume.

The comicbook sequel hits theaters on May 6, 2016, and is directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, who oversaw “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.” The cast is expected to include Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Evans as Captain America, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye and Anthony Mackie as Falcon, among other costumed heroes.

In addition to playing Bilbo Baggins in the “Hobbit” trilogy, Freeman has appeared in “Sherlock,” the “Fargo” TV series and the original U.K. version of “The Office.” Most recently, he has filmed »

Captain America: Civil War Adds Martin Freeman

5 May 2015 11:25 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Well now both Sherlock Holmes and John Watson are part of the McU. Marvel announced today that Sherlock and The Hobbit star Martin Freeman has joined the bursting-at-the-seams cast of Captain America: Civil War. Directed by Captain America: The Winter Soldier helmers Joe and Anthony Russo, Civil War is technically a Captain America movie, but it’s becoming harder to believe it’s not actually The Avengers 2.5. Marvel doesn’t specify what character Freeman is playing, but as of now the lineup for Civil War includes Chris Evans (Steve Rogers), Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark), Scarlett Johansson (Natasha Romanoff), Jeremy Renner (Clint Barton), Sebastian Stan (Bucky Barnes/The Winter Soldier), Anthony Mackie (Falcon), Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch), as well as Chadwick Boseman’s debut appearance as Black Panther, Daniel Bruhl as the villainous Baron von Zemo, and the new Spider-Man who has yet to be cast.

Martin Freeman Joins 'Captain America: Civil War'

5 May 2015 7:50 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Martin Freeman is having a moment: The Emmy-winning actor just joined the cast of "Captain America: Civil War."

The "Hobbit" star will make his Marvel movie debut in "Civil War," in an undisclosed role. While Freeman has made a name for himself on the small screen, with roles in "Fargo," "Sherlock," and the original British version of "The Office," he's been graduating to bigger fare as of late thanks to the "Hobbit" trilogy, and joining the McU juggernaut is a big coup.

"From his roles as Bilbo Baggins and Doctor Watson to Tim in 'The Office,' Martin's range from the dramatic to the comedic has consistently impressed us," said Marvel Studios head honcho Kevin Feige in a statement on Marvel's website. "We couldn't be more honored or excited to have such a talented actor join the Marvel Cinematic Universe."

When is the Right Time to Pull the Plug on a Long-Running Show?

29 April 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

With the broadcast upfronts around the corner, the major networks are tasked with making crucial decisions regarding the fate of series new and old for the 2015-16 season.

Given the massive increase in the volume of primetime television shows, it’s tougher to decide whether to stick with reliable long-running programs or take a gamble on something new that could become a binge-worthy hit. Since viewers have more choices, networks may be less inclined to stick with older shows just for the sake of stability.

“In the platinum age of quality and choice, broadcasters have to be more aggressive about letting go of the past,” said producer and former NBC Entertainment president Warren Littlefield.

But viewers aren’t the only ones distracted by so many options. Actors are demonstrating a new willingness to bow out of successful series. Showrunners, in order to better shape a program’s long-term storytelling arc, »

Aziz Ansari, whose next show will be on Netflix.

MTV has cancelled the thriller Eye Candy after one season. Series star Victoria Justice made the announcement via twitter.

Hi everyone! I wanted you guys to hear it from me first, that the cast and I received news that Eye Candy will not be returning for season 2.  Even though a lot of you are going to feel sad/angry, please know that playing Lindy Sampson, is something that I loved and I will hold dear to my heart. I couldn’t have asked for better cast mates to work with either.  They are the most down to earth, talented and kind souls that I am so happy to have met.

Fargo Casts Adam Arkin to Play Mob Boss in Season 2

22 April 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Even though it doesn’t have a premiere date yet, Fargo Season 2 is one of the most anticipated TV events of 2015. And if fans of the series weren’t already excited enough, this casting news should pump them up. As first reported by EW.com, actor/director Adam Arkin has joined the cast of Fargo Season 2. Per EW, Arkin will play the character of mob boss Hamish Broker, who is described as a “‘mid-level manager in the Kansas City crime syndicate’ (but is likely the highest-ranking member of the crime organization that we’ll actually see).” In addition, Arkin will also be directing the penultimate episode and finale of Fargo Season 2. Initially, he was only supposed to be a director for the series but was asked by Fargo showrunner Noah Hawley if he would play Broker, too. Arkin is no stranger to acting and directing in FX dramas, as he did so in… »

The Peabody Awards announce their 2015 entertainment program winners

17 April 2015 7:13 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Peabody Awards have grown to be a staple of media since their beginning in 1940, as the committee awards programs they see as excellent in quality. Beginning with only awards for radio, the group soon expanded to television, giving tv shows their due credit since 1948.

While the actual awards ceremony has yet to occur, the Awards committee follows an unusual process by announcing the winners ahead of the actual ceremony, where the recipients receive their prizes. With Fred Armisen confirmed as the host of the 2015 festivities, which will take place on May 31st, the group has now announced the Entertainment Program winners for the 74th incarnation of the awards, along with their reasoning. The winners, who join already-announced recipients Sir David Attenborough and Afropop Worldwide, can be seen below.

'Fargo' mastermind Noah Hawley reflects on Peabody Award on the Season 2 set

17 April 2015 7:10 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Calgary, Alberta. There have been so many honors for FX's "Fargo" that it's hardly surprising to find a visit to the set coinciding with yet another award. In this case, on Thursday (April 16) morning, I found myself with a group of reporters on the Calgary set of the second installment of "Fargo" just as the cast and crew were reveling in the announcement that the show's first miniseries/season had been chosen for the 74th annual Peabody Awards. It's an award that recognizes not only quality, but a level of cultural importance. Ahead of a fuller discussion of Season 2 of "Fargo," I chatted with series creator Noah Hawley about what it meant to have his evolution of The Coen Brothers' Oscar-winner recognized in this way. "Look, there's no small awards," Hawley mused. "Know what I mean? Even my award from Rotten Tomatoes for the best reviewed show of the year, »
