Hey All,

Here are the news items for today:


Actor Jose Zuniga (CSI: Miami and the first Twilight film) will make a guest appearance on an upcoming episode of Burn Notice, playing a vicious cocaine smuggler named Vasquez, who is being described as clever and sadistic who isn’t shy about using torture to locate a missing cocaine shipment. (Kimberly Roots at TV Line)

Actor Charles S. Dutton (Roc) will appear in the season finale of the new A&E drama Longmire, playing a detective from Colorado who comes to Absoroka County to follow up on a mysterious case from Walt’s past. (Matt Mitovich at TV Line)

Actor Chris Zylka (The Secret Circle and 10 Things I Hate About You) has joined the cast of American Horror Story. There are no details on what role he will play when the FX thriller returns for a second season later this year, though. (Carrie Bell and Tim Stack at Entertainment Weekly)

The USA Network has picked up the new drama called Graceland from White Collar creator Jeff Eastin. The series will star Daniel Sunjata (Rescue Me), Aaron Tveit (Gossip Girl), Manny Montana (The Chicago Code), Vanessa Ferlito (CSI:NY) and Brandon Jay McLaren (The Killing) as agents for the FBI, DEA and U.S. Customs who are forced to live together in an undercover beach house in Southern California. The pilot will also feature guest stars Scottie Thompson (NCIS), Courtney B. Vance (Law & Order: Criminal Intent) and Jay Karnes (The Shield). (Vlada Gelman at TV Line)

TNT has given a fourth season pick-up order to Rizzoli & Isles and renewed the new reboot of Dallas for a second season. (The Futon Critic)


It looks like the Lost Boys – the ones from Peter Pan lore – will be getting their own show, as long as the powers that be can find a home network for them, of course. Twentieth Century Fox and Imagine TV are developing The League Of Pan, a fairytale-themed drama series that takes on the story of Peter Pan. The series will be based on an idea by up-and-coming writer Brian McCauley Johnson and is described as a re-imagining of the Peter Pan mythology. It will be set in modern day, centering around the Lost Boys and takes place 10 years after they’ve left Neverland. (Nellie Andreeva at Deadline)


Actor Dylan McDermott (American Horror Story) has joined the cast of the box office film Olympus Has Fallen that will star Gerard Butler and Aaron Eckhart. The story follows a former Secret Service agent (Butler) who becomes America’s only hope when the building is overtaken by terrorists. McDermott will play another Secret Service agent. (Variety)

Actor Tommy Lee Jones (Men in Black franchise) will join actor Robert De Niro and actress Michelle Pfeiffer in the dark comedy film called Malavita. De Niro and Pfeiffer play a married couple with Mafia ties who relocate to France under the witness protection program. But of course, while trying to fit in, they quickly go back to their old mafia ways of dealing with certain problems. Jones will play an FBI agent tasked with handling the mob couple and all their problems. (Variety and First Showing)

Q&A SECTION (with Sandra Gonzalez at Entertainment Weekly)

Question: Please tell me there’s something in store for Abby this season on NCIS. There wasn’t nearly enough of her last season. — Lorie

Sandra: According to Pauley Perrette, this season will not only see returns from Abby’s brother and bestie (played by Meredith Eaton), but it will also take us deeper into her life beyond NCIS. “The only thing I do know in general [about the season] is we’re going to go a little bit more into Abby’s life more. People have been asking for it for a long time,” she says.

Question: Could you at least offer some seriously juicy spoilers for Teen Wolf so I’ll have *something* spooky to look forward to? — Lyssandri

Sandra: As we saw this week, Jackson turned out to be the kanima, but Crystal Reed (who plays Allison) tells me the trouble really starts for the teen when he starts to put the pieces together for himself. And the audience, she says, will “see how it psychologically affects him.” Meanwhile, something will rock Allison’s family life in the next two episodes, introducing an Allison we’ve never seen before. “People don’t recognize her anymore or — she becomes a little psycho,” she says. “But she’s doing it for justice. That’s her rationale.”

Question: I know you can’t say who bites it on Covert Affairs. But got any other good scoop? — Angie

Sandra: Oded Fehr will be back! “He’ll be in the summer season and we’ll see him a lot in the fall season as well,” reveals executive producer Chris Ord. Meanwhile, I urge you to mark July 10 on your calendars. This is a premiere that is NOT to be missed.

That’s it. Enjoy!

Have a great weekend!!

The following is verbatim via a press release:

Comic-Con and Warner Bros. announced today that the Studio will once again follow the official Comic-Con® International: San Diego ticket distribution system for autograph signings at Comic-Con 2012, with the Con implementing a new procedure for 2012. The Studio will present more than 20 signings at the booth this year, including TV and digital series, as well as motion pictures (see current signing dates below). All signings will be held at the Warner Bros. booth, #4545 on the Comic-Con exhibition floor. For the second straight year, Warner Bros. will distribute wristbands for signings via daily ticket drawings held at the Sails Pavilion inside the San Diego Convention Center, under the long-standing Comic-Con system


* For 2012, The Following modifications will be in effect for the wristband line procedure:
* All ticket drawings and wristband distributions for all signings will begin in the morning of the day of the specific signing, when the Sails Pavilion opens to attendees. Badged Comic-Con members can begin lining up as soon as the Sails Pavilion area opens to attendees. The ticket drawings will begin at 8:00 a.m. or shortly thereafter.
* All of the drawings for all signings will now take place in one line on the morning of the signing
* Advisory to fans and attendees: Lines will likely be much longer this year, and we appreciate your patience and understanding

Here’s how it works:

1. Fans identify the signing they want to attend
2. On the morning of the day of the signing they hope to attend, fans should arrive at the Sails Pavilion floor (between Ballroom 20 and Rooms 6A, 6BCF and 6DE) in the morning
3. Ticket distribution for Comic-Con’s random draw will begin when the Sails Pavilion opens to attendees. Badged Comic-Con members can begin lining up as soon as the Sails Pavilion area opens. 4. The ticket drawings will begin at 8:00 a.m. or shortly thereafter.
5. A limited number of wristbands will be available for each signing, via Comic-Con’s random draw process
6. There will be one line for all drawings and signings. We appreciate your patience!
7. The random drawing will determine which fans receive wristbands granting access to each autograph line
8. Fans who obtain wristbands should arrive at the Warner Bros. booth 30 minutes before the signing to line up

See below for the current signing dates for TV and digital series. The feature film signings will be announced at a later date. All signings are at the Warner Bros. booth #4545.

Hey All,

Here are the news items for today:


Actress Charisma Carpenter (Buffy and Angel) has been made a series regular on the ABC Family teen drama The Lying Game. (Megan Masters and Vlada Gelman at TV Line)

The cast for the first scripted drama on the History Channel – Vikings – has been announced: actresses Jessalyn Gilsig (Glee) and Katheryn Winnick (Bones) as well as actors Gabriel Byrne (In Treatment) and Travis Fimmel (The Beast). Byrne will play Earl Haraldson, a former warrior and the most important ruler in the Ragnar’s district who clashes with the king. Gilsig will play his enigmatic wife, Siggy, who may not be completely loyal to her husband. Fimmel will star as Ragnar, the first great Viking leader who is frustrated by the unadventurous policies of his local chieftain, Earl. The show will look at Viking culture from within as well as an adventure and family saga. (Lesley Goldberg at The Hollywood Reporter)

Bradley Cooper & Jennifer Lawrence in ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ Trailer

SPOILER CHAT (from E! Online)

Question: I’m dying without my Vampire Diaries fix! Anything at all on season four? – Jenna in Miami:

E! Online: Looks like we’ll be meeting beauty and the badass next season! April, 16, is a sweet and pretty private school girl, but her father’s passing has led her back to Mystic Falls. Even though she seems naïve, beware: She’s smarter than she looks. Connor on the other hand is 100 percent in-your-face at all times. This thirtysomething is described as a “scary hot” Navy SEAL type. We’re not quite sure if he’ll be a vampire, but we do know that he’s going to be a “highly trained killing machine.” Yikes!

Question: When is The Lying Game coming back?! – CountryBlondeB:

E! Online: Instead of prescribing a large dose of medication for that anxiety, we’re just gonna give you some casting scoop instead! Although season two doesn’t premiere until winter, production is already beginning for these little liars. (Déjà vu, anyone?) In the first episode back, “The Revengers,” we’re going to meet a new Beverly Hills babe, Jordan Lyle, who’s handsome, athletic and confident but not cocky. Sounds too good to be true? Well then maybe we should mention that when this bad boy is not riding around on his motorcycle, he’s keeping busy with a secret agenda.

That’s it. Enjoy!

Hey All

Here are the news items for today:


Actor Nathan Lane is the latest addition to the guest star ranks for The Good Wife when the series returns to CBS this fall. He will play a bean-counter assigned by the bank to trim the fat at Lockhart & Gardner and get the firm back to fiscal health. As such, he will find himself at odds with Will, Diane and others at the firm. Lane joins the recently Maura Tierney, Kristin Chenoweth and Marc Warren as guest stars. (Matt Mitovich at TV Line)

Actress Diane Neal (Law & Order: SVU) is in talks to return to her role of Special Agent Abigail Borin on NCIS next season. (Matt Mitovich and Vlada Gelman at TV Line)

Actor Rob Morrow (Northern Exposure and Numb3rs) will guest star in the first two episodes of CSI: NY when it returns this fall. He will play a previously convicted arsonist who has recently been released from prison; but when a new rash of fires erupt across New York City, the NYPD and the CSIs turn to Morrow’s expert firebug for help. (Matt Mitovich at TV Line)


The sad news hit Twitter last night that well-known Director-Writer Nora Ephron passed away after a battle with leukemia. She is the writer of the classic romantic comedy When Harry Met Sally and the director of films like Sleepless in Seattle, You’ve Got Mail and Julie & Julia. She was 71. (Twitter and E! Online)

ME: Rest in Peace, Ms. Ephron! Deepest condolences to her family, friends and fans!



Actors Josh Henderson (Dallas) and Dermot Mulroney (My Best Friend’s Wedding) have joined the cast of the independent psychological action film called Swelter, which centers on four violent escaped prisoners arriving in a small dusty and sweltering California town in search of the fifth man who fled with over $10 million in cash. (Variety and Dark Horizons)

Actor Kevin Durand (Lost) has joined the cast of the upcoming film called Devil’s Knot, playing the father of one of the murdered children in the West Memphis Three case. The real-life father loved talking to the press and was initially a person of interest in the murders since his story changed from his initial police statement. (Variety and Dark Horizons)

Actress Catherine Keener (Percy Jackson & the Olympians) has joined the cast of the upcoming film called Can a Song Save Your Life?, which stars Keira Knightley as a woman who moves to New York to pursue her dreams of a singing career and befriends a down-on-his-luck record producer (Mark Ruffalo). Keener will portray a successful music writer and Ruffalo’s estranged wife. (The Hollywood Reporter and Dark Horizons)

Actor James Marsden (Enchanted) will play a naval commander in the upcoming film called Two Guns, which will star Mark Wahlberg and Denzel Washington as a Navy SEAL and a DEA agent, respectively, who work together despite not knowing that the each is doing so undercover. When they steal millions from the CIA, they discover double-crossing associates who will do anything to retrieve the money. (Variety and Dark Horizons)

It looks like actor Ryan Reynolds (Green Lantern) could be taking over the helm of the long-in-gestation Highlander reboot. Yes, you read that right – Highlander. He will supposedly play Connor MacLeod in the reboot. The synopsis of the proposed film is this: An immortal Scottish swordsman must confront the last of his immortal opponents, a murderously brutal barbarian who lusts for the fabled “Prize”. (The Tracking Board and Blastr)

Q&A SECTION (with Natalie Abrams and Adam Bryant from TV Guide)

Question: Will there be a time jump on Once Upon a Time? — Jimmy

NATALIE: Negative, Jimmy. You’ll get to see how magic comes to Storybrooke in a big way. “Don’t worry, we won’t be skipping over any big moments,” consulting producer Jane Espenson tells us. “We love these characters and we want to see how they navigate their way through their new situation. And not just the Charming Family… expect big moments for everyone in town!”

Question: How does Maura track down her birth mom on Rizzoli & Isles? — Jessica

ADAM: With a case, of course! Maura reaches out to her mom, Dr. Hope Martin (guest star Sharon Lawrence), who just so happens to work in the same field. But don’t think she tells Hope up front that she’s her long-believed-to-be-dead daughter. “It’s drawn-out,” Lawrence, who will appear in three episodes, tells us. “Hope has a daughter from her marriage. There’s a lot to play. Maura’s too smart to throw in a bit of information that could blow up in everybody’s face, so it’ll take a bit.”

Question: I liked The Newsroom’s first episode. But is Will always going to be so grumpy? — Daniel

ADAM: Yeah, probably. That’s partly because Will’s new vision for “News Night” doesn’t exactly sit well with ACN’s corporate overlords, who very quickly threaten to fire him if he doesn’t go back to the safety of the middle of the road. But that doesn’t mean Will won’t soften up a bit before the season’s out. He might even make amends! “Will travels a thousand miles from the season opener to the season finale,” creator Aaron Sorkin tells us. “He even runs into the sorority girl he berates in the opening minutes of the series and gives her a very different answer to the question she first asked.”

Question: Give us some Awkward scoop. — Liam

NATALIE: Just as the writer of the “carefrontation” letter gets revealed, a new mystery will kick off when Jenna finds a mysterious commenter on her not-so-secret-anymore blog. “It’s a running [thread] and ultimately motivates something really big,” series creator Lauren Iungerich tells us. Just like the carefrontation letter, Iungerich promises that the commenter will be revealed by season end.

That’s it. Enjoy!
