Jessica Chastain In Talks For Film Adaptation Of The Division

One day, the quest for a decent narrative film adaptation of a popular video game might end. Today is not that day, however, and the mission continues. Academy Award nominee Jessica Chastain is now in talks to join the planned adaptation of Tom Clancy’s The Division – one of Ubisoft’s bestselling titles – which is being packaged for sale by Ubisoft Motion Pictures.

The project has been on the radar for some months, with the involvement of Academy Award nominee Jake Gyllenhaal as star and producer already confirmed. The Division will also be co-produced by Ubisoft’s Gerard Guillemot, and Chastain would presumably come aboard as co-lead cast member. The story would be a great fit for the actress, too, who has built an impressive career combining heavy duty drama (Zero Dark Thirty, A Most Violent Year), with more action-based fare (The Huntsman: Winter’s War).

Though the adaptation does

TV on Tap: Spartacus' Final Stand, Patrick Duffy Wants a "Step By Step" Reunion and "Copper" Gets Alfre Woodard

Da Vinci's Demons spreads its wings tonight.

News

Patrick Duffy says he'd like to participate in a Step by Step reunion movie and that it would be interesting to see how the Lambert family grew up. I just hope such a series spawns a serious topical drama that desperately adds a laugh track when ratings tank, giving the Tgif generation a The Bradys of their own.

You've seen me complain that the dark side of a golden age of television is a too-full DVR that make it challenging to keep up with all the good shows (as well as the guilty pleasures and hate watching) available. It also means that shows like Southland and Switched at Birth don't quite get the attention they deserve. I'm still looking for time to get caught up on Game of Thrones, much less time to get to that third episode of Top of the Lake.

TV on Tap: Evan Peters and Sarah Paulson Returning to "American Horror Story," Geena Davis Has a New TV Show and Betsy Brandt is Michael J. Fox's New TV Wife

It's time for Fringe fans to say goodbye.

News

We're starting to get details of American Horror Story's third season. Evan Peters and Sarah Paulson will return for the third story. Ryan Murphy added that he had promised Jessica Lange she'd get to wear some designer gowns to get her to return after playing Sister Jude, so her character this time will be a "glamour cat leading lady."

Meanwhile, the big industry news is that Fox might split American Horror Story's network into two channels. Broadcasting & Cable reports that FX would keep the dramatic content while the new network would focus on comedy (similar to the division between TNT and TBS) and inherit shows like Archer and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. The new channel would take over the Fox Soccer channel.

After quitting Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, Meredith Viera might be entering the daytime talk show scene.

Whatever Happened To Mandy Moore?

Whatever Happened To Mandy Moore?
You know those stars who blow up for all of about five minutes -- or five years, if they're lucky -- and then disappear into the ether? The ones whom you're reminded of only upon seeing a late-night commercial for "Totally R&B" or gasping with excitement as they pop up on the latest episode of "30 Rock"?

The Huffington Post has been scouring the Web for juice on some of your old favorites, from pop-music princess Mandy Moore to "Cruel Intentions" heartthrob Ryan Phillippe. Find out what these and plenty of other stars are actually up to. Believe it or not, most of them are in fact still working. (We didn't believe it either.)

Music:

Ginuwine

You might not be aware, but R&B slow-jam aficionado Ginuwine is still making music. He released a greatest hits album in 2006, and his most recent effort, 2011’s “Elgin,” debuted at a crisp No.

TV on Tap: Kal Penn to Host Discovery's "Big Brain Theory," "Fairly Legal" Is Cancelled and Is the Door Finally Open to "Muppet Babies"?

Lets hope Malibu Country turns out to be a show worthy of Lily Tomlin.

News

Kal Penn will host a competition series on Discovery, The Big Brain Theory, that will focus on engineering challenges. I have to admit, I'm intrigued by the concept.

A day after it made the cancellation of Common Law official, USA announced that it cancelled Fairly Legal. Since the gay character stopped appearing by the second season, I gave up trying to endure it.

Revolution and Supernatural creator Eric Kripke says that the reason why the power went out is at least somewhat scientifically possible and repeated that we won't have to wait very long to get some answers.

HBO has ordered eight episodes of Hello Ladies, the comedy from Ricky Gervais' frequent collaborator Stephen Merchant.

ABC will work to adapt the BBC series Rev. I've been hearing about the original, so I guess its time I tried harder to check it out.

In unsurprising news, PETA is thrilled that Animal Practice has been cancelled.

  • Comicmix
Alex Rocco, best known for his role as gangster Moe Greene in The Godfather, returns to his mobster roots as Carmine Falcone in Batman: Year One, the next entry in the popular, ongoing series of DC Universe Animated Original Movies.

The appearance in a Dark Knight-related project brings Rocco’s 44-year career full circle. The Massachusetts-born actor, who was once an adjunct member of Boston’s Winter Hill Gang, got his first on-screen role in the 1960s Batman television series.

Rocco appeared as the thug Block in the back-to-back episodes “A Piece of the Action” and “Batman’s Satisfaction,” which premiered on March 1 and 2, 1967.

NBC Orders Full Seasons of The Event, Law & Order: Los Angeles and Outsourced

Hot on the heels of the full season upgrade for Chuck, NBC announced today via press release that they have now ordered full seasons for three of their newest TV series. The hour-long drama The Event, the half-hour comedy Outsourced and the legal drama spin-off Law & Order: Los Angeles all had their stay on NBC extended for at least one full season. Network president Angela Bromstad said, ““We are pleased with the quality of The Event, Law & Order: Los Angeles and Outsourced, and feel they are an important part of helping to re-build our schedule and our studio pipeline. We believe in these new series and the creative auspices behind them.” Honestly, I feel almost the exact opposite way.
