Who’S It For? If you like horror/action, get in line. The 3D is a quality gimmick here, so that part is totally up to you.

Expectations: I never saw the first, and it’s not available on Netflix Instant, so I tried, Ok people? While I’m a fan of the cast, I really wasn’t expecting much from this end of summer flick. Plus, it’s directed by the guy who did the horror film Lars and the Real Girl … wait a minute, that’s not a horror film, that’s a quality movie. What’s going on here?

Saturday Night Live Recruits Three New Cast Members, But Are More Veterans Leaving the Show?

Upon first inspection, it would appear that Will Forte’s recently reported departure from Saturday Night Live is warranting a trio of comedians to replace him. However, The New York Post’s report that three new rising improv comedians are joining the cast in September suggests that more veteran departures may be on the way. Of course this is only speculation, but getting three news cast members to join the sketch comedy series while only one is leaving just seems a bit excessive and unnecessary. So who are the lucky young comedians who will be performing live from New York? Find out after the jump.

First up and the most well known of the additions is Taran Killam. The young comedian has had recurring roles on both Scrubs and How I Met Your Mother, the latter certainly helped by the fact that he’s long been in a relationship with

Talks heat up over a return for Scrubs

According to Variety, talks are ongoing between ABC and “Scrubs” producers to come to a new agreement to lower license fees in order to bring the show back for a ninth season. “Scrubs” has never achieved any significant ratings success, but it maintains a loyal audience in an attractive demographic for advertisers, and ABC sales staff are eager to bring the show back and take advantage of this potential revenue. DVD sales of the series have also been decent.

Lead star Zach Braff is believed to still be interested in returning for another series, but perhaps in a reduced role, as is the case with most of the other cast members who have no contract after they expired. Executive producer Bill Lawrence would also return to the show with likely reduced involvement if his new comedy series, “Cougar Town” starring Courteney Cox, is picked up by ABC.

Scrubs in Talks for 9th Season

Talks continue over the possibility of Scrubs returning for a ninth season next fall, according to Variety.

ABC has been in talks with the show's producers about ways to lower the license fee on Scrubs, and that star Zach Braff is now believed to be interested in returning for at least a portion of the episodes.

Insiders at the net said that ABC's sales team remains high on the show, which they said remains popular with advertisers because of its upscale demographics. Scrubs hasn't been a ratings hit on ABC, but it's performed decently enough -- and the Alphabet doesn't have many half-hours in its arsenal.

As for the cast, key players John C. McGinley, Donald Faison and Neil Flynn have all landed pilots this spring -- and no thesps are signed for Scrubs beyond this year. But some of those actors are likely to return, as least on a recurring basis.
