Hey All,

Here are the news items for today:


Actress Laurie Holden (The Walking Dead) has landed a role in an episode of Major Crimes that will focus on the Special Operations Bureau (SOB). Holden will play Ann McGinnis, the second in command of the LAPD’s “SOB” unit, a former Air Force Officer, who has moved rapidly up the LAPD chain-of-command due to her intense focus on mission-oriented leadership. This episode also marks the return of Jon Tenney as FBI Agent Fritz Howard, who will figure largely in the introduction of the “SOB” — and possibly setting up what has been described as a potential spin-off of The Closer’s own spin-off. (Matt Mitovich at TV Line)


Boom! Studios will launch a four-issue Sleepy Hollow comic book series, based on the TV series, in October. The stories will take place across different parts of the show’s timeline. The series itself will be back for its second season on FOX starting on September 22. (Graeme McMillian at The Hollywood Reporter)


Actresses Famke Janssen (Hemlock Grove) and AnnaSophia Robb (The Carrie Diaries) have joined the cast of the upcoming box office film Jack Of The Red Hearts that is about a teenage con artist who tricks a desperate mother into hiring her as a live-in companion for her autistic daughter. (Jen Yamato at Deadline)

The 6-part half-hour mini-series Vicious will debut on PBS on June 29 at 10:30 PM.

Partners Freddie (Ian McKellen) and Stuart (Derek Jacobi), who have lived together in a small central London flat for nearly 50 years, are always at each other’s throats, making snide remarks aimed at the other’s age, appearance and flaws. However, underneath their vicious fighting, they share a deep love. Freddie and Stuart are often joined by feisty best friend Violet (Frances de la Tour from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows) and Ash (Iwan Rheon from Game of Thrones), their young, upstairs neighbor.

Vicious will air for six straight weeks, ending on August 3.

Here is a promo for Vicious.
