DC Comics movie heroes haven’t excited me in a long, long time. ‘Man Of Steel’ was just okay and ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ disappointed me something ridiculous. I can’t even say that I’m completely stoked over the upcoming ‘Batman V. Superman’ film, which is basically just a ‘Justice League Lite.’ Sure, there’s potential beyond Afflecting my Batman, but I gotta question the cred of a movie where the Aquaman casting is the top thing that intrigues me. But films be damned, whether they know it or not, DC/Warner Bros. are pulling an Alec Baldwin – finding awesome success on TV when that whole cinematic thing isn’t working out. And there’s seemingly a good reason for their sweet fortune: they know what they’re doing on that small screen. That’s why TV’s Flash is outrunning movie Superman, and his show hasn’t even aired yet.

It’s taken a long time, and there’s been an awful lost of speculation up to this point, but now there’s been a semi-official announcement concerning the cast of True Detective season 2. You can hardly blame any actor in Hollywood for the hesitancy, True Detective was the smash success of winter and a new prestige hit for HBO, a network known for prestige hits. All that, and the fact that Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson are going to be a tough act to follow, would scare even the boldest of actors from being the follow-up act in the new season. But fortune, as they say, favors the bold, and Colin Farrell hopes that this is the case because he says he’s just signed up to lead True Detective season 2. (more…)

As April Ludgate on the cult favorite sitcom Parks and Recreation, and Julie Powers in Edgar Wright‘s 2010 film adaptation of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Aubrey Plaza has essentially made a name for herself as Nerddom’s bitter, misanthropic sweetheart. She has accomplished the rare feat of combining an acid tongue and dour demeanor with an undeniable, and almost inexplicable appeal.
Sound like anyone the Internet knows?
That’s right: The sour-faced feline actually named Tardar Sauce, but better known by her “stage name”–Grumpy Cat–will star in her own Christmas special on the cable network Lifetime, and Ms. Plaza will provide the online phenomenon’s voice. More after the jump: (more…)
While Tim Kring’s 2006 television series Heroes may have left a bad taste in some mouths, one thing that most fans had in common was the love of the characters. Viewers were genuinely interested in what would happen to Peter Petrelli (Milo Ventimiglia); audiences cheered anytime the series focused on Hiro Nakamura (Masi Oka); fans truly believed that if Peter saved the cheerleader, Claire Bennet (Hayden Panettiere), he could save the world. While the good guys were fun to rally behind, there is no doubt that audiences absolutely adored big baddie, Sylar (Zachary Quinto). The moment a reboot of the series was announced, titled Heroes Reborn, fans wanted to know who would be returning and started crossing their fingers in the hope that their favorite characters would reappear. Unfortunately, while he played what was undoubtedly one of the most popular roles on the series, Quinto has squashed any hope fans had for the return of the super cool villain. (more…)
