Darren Criss, GleeYou'll be seeing a lot more Darren Criss on 'Glee' this fall now that the actor has been made a series regular, and his first official duty as a full-time cast member is to hit up the crowded California chaos center known as San Diego Comic-Con.

The Warblers leader will head up the 'Glee' panel alongside fellow full-time newbie Harry Shum Jr. (also known as Mike Chang), Jenna Ushkowitz (Tina) and Dot Marie Jones (Coach Bieste). While Ryan Murphy will be M.I.A., TVLine reports that co-creators Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan, executive producer Dante di Loreto and choreographer Zack Woodlee will be in attendance.

The panel, which will be held in Hall H on Sun., July 24 at 10AM, will be moderated by TVLine's Michael Ausiello and will also give fans a sneak peek at the 'Glee' 3-D concert movie.

Yup, NBC is Seriously Thinking About Picking Up '24'

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 16th 2010 1:02PM
Kiefer SutherlandA couple of weeks ago we told you that the idea was being floated at NBC that they should pick up '24' next season. No, FOX hasn't officially said that this will be the show's last season, but industry sources say that they're thinking about ending the show because it has been on for several seasons and it's too expensive to produce (though a big-screen flick might be a factor too). NBC's Angela Bromstad even confirmed that execs at the Peacock Network are actually considering it, though they too think it might be too pricey.

Now Michael Ausiello says that this isn't just some TV programming fantasy, it's actually something that NBC is seriously considering. In fact, 20th Century Fox has approached NBC about it.

It could be an interesting move. Sure, the show doesn't have quite the buzz that it did a few seasons ago, but it does have a certain quality level and fan base that NBC would love to have. Imagine '24' taking up one of the 9 or 10pm slots now inhabited by a reality show or an episode of 'Dateline.'

'Star Trek' Writers Orci and Kurtzman Sign With Fox TV

by Mike Moody, posted Feb 2nd 2010 5:02PM
orci kurtzman tv dealRoberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, the writing team behind last year's best and worst blockbusters ('Star Trek' and, you know, 'Transformers 2'), have inked a three-year deal to develop new shows for 20th Century Fox.

The 'Fringe' scribes will write and produce TV projects under their own company, which Fox hopes they'll populate with creative moneymaking geeks like themselves.

The duo is gonna be very busy for the next few years. They've already signed to write and produce a 'Hawaii Five-O' reboot for CBS, and they're also launching a new 'Transformers' cartoon for Hasbro's The Hub. (Not to mention 'Fringe', which is still going strong on Fox.)

Orci and Kurtzman's movie projects include the much-anticipated 'Star Trek' sequel and the big budget graphic novel adaptation 'Cowboys & Aliens'.

Merlin Olsen suing NBC

by Bob Sassone, posted Jan 1st 2010 7:01PM
Merlin OlsenMerlin Olsen, who was a football player and then went on to become a sportscaster for NBC and an actor on such TV shows as Little House on the Prairie and Father Murphy, is suing NBC Studios, NBC Universal, and 20th Century Fox for exposing him to asbestos. Olsen was diagnosed with mesothelioma last year and is undergoing chemotherapy.

But the lawsuit doesn't stop there. Because he was exposed to asbestos at a job when he was around 11 years old and also exposed when he was an adult while working at a job involving drywall, Olsen is also suing Sherwin-Williams and Lennox Industries.

Hmmm, I have zero legal training (unless you count watching L.A. Law reruns as legal training), but I wonder if the fact that Olsen says that he was exposed to asbestos when he was younger will affect the lawsuit? Maybe he would have more luck suing the earlier companies rather than NBC?

New Simpsons 20th anniversary poster will make your eyes bleed yellow blood

by Danny Gallagher, posted Dec 16th 2009 9:00PM

Think you can identify every Simpsons character ever in the history of the known universe? Be our guest.

Fox has unveiled a huge new poster of all of the show's characters in the last 20 years. You can see a bigger image of the breathtaking new poster here.

It's actually quite detailed and goes well beyond the two decade long scope of the actual show. A quick scan of the characters turned up a shot of Marge and Homer from their short days on The Tracey Ullman Show.

Introducing the new A-Team

by Brad Trechak, posted Oct 26th 2009 8:02PM
The A-TeamThe upcoming A-Team movie has released its first cast photo (a larger version can be seen here), and I'll give credit where credit is due. Not only has Fox cast the movie perfectly, but they've gone out of their way to make the cast look like their 80's television equivalents. Okay, Rampage Jackson isn't wearing gold chains, but that's about it.

They even made Liam Neeson look like George Peppard. How cool is that? And of course that's the classic van in the background. Even if this movie ends up being a mindless action flick, then it's still following in the footsteps of its originator and will likely make $100 million that weekend.

I just wonder if anybody is actually going to be shot and killed in the movie. It never seemed to happen during the television show. More importantly, will any of the original cast members make a cameo?

No sequel for The Simpsons Movie for now

by Danny Gallagher, posted Oct 7th 2009 10:02PM
Bart and Homer in The Simpsons MovieIf you fondly remember watching the first Simpsons Movie hoping that the sequel would bring you equal amounts of life affirming excitement, keep hoping.

Matt Groening and Al Jean said an interview with Morgan Spurlock, the Super Size Me star and director hired for the show's big anniversary extravaganza, that they have no plans to start doing another Simpsons movie anytime soon.

They didn't rule out the possibility of another movie, but it certainly won't be in the foreseeable future. The pair said the process for the first movie was so frustrating that they couldn't fathom even starting a second one without some kind of heavy duty anti-psychotic medication.

Futurama back on track again

by Danny Gallagher, posted Aug 3rd 2009 10:02AM
Fry, Bender and Leela in New New York during a Futurama episodeDespite a minor derailment that nearly threw all of the show's voice talent head first through a windshield, Futurama is finally full steam ahead ... again.

Variety reports that production on the new Comedy Central episodes has been restarted now that the principal voice talent has been coaxed back to the studio. This means that the show will be able to meet its 2010 target date.

That is, of course, unless there are unforeseen complications like, say, another writers' strike, an animator ink shortage, or an impromptu invasion led by the planet Omicron Persei 8. Negotiations with Lur are still pending.

Futurama gets ALL of its original voices back - UPDATED

by Jason Hughes, posted Aug 1st 2009 9:02AM
FuturamaIt looks like it may have all been tactics after all. At least so far. While I'm thrilled that the majority of the Futurama voice actors have signed deals to reprise their roles, they're still missing two of the key talents. Can you really imagine Futurama with different voices for Fry, Zoidberg, Farnsworth and Bender? At the same time, I can't really see Billy West (Fry, Zoidberg, Farnsworth) and John Di Maggio (Bender) walking away from this.

Di Maggio is currently working on Penguins of Madagascar, but neither is working on anything as high profile as Futurama. I can't imagine they have any intention of truly walking away from a revival getting this much press. They were just trying to play hardball, and realized that 20th Century wasn't going to play.

I think it would have been fun if they'd recast the characters. They would have probably even addressed it right in the episodes, having them talk about how they all sound different and coming up with some ridiculous reason for it.

[UPDATE: - Since the composition of this post, all principal cast members have been signed.]

It's confirmed! Bender is back! And his banjo! And so is the rest of the Futurama crew!

Futurama returning to Comedy Central with all new episodes
What was once just internet gossip that spread across the web like a persistent skin rash has now become confirmed fact.

20th Century Fox and Comedy Central
are not only reviving Futurama, but they want double the initial number of episodes that Collider.com reported meaning fans can look forward to 26 new episodes the sci-fi comedy series around the middle of 2010.

Variety also reports that actors Billy West, Katey Sagal and John DiMaggio have also signed up to once again provide the voices for Fry, Leela and Bender. I believe that sound you just heard was the universe being ripped open by this awesome time loop.

Love, Simpsons style

by Danny Gallagher, posted Mar 10th 2009 9:25AM
I've often heard from married guys that the best way to test your loved one's love is to change the wedding plans at the last minute to something completely outrageous. I'm assuming they mean an idea more outrageous than marriage.

If you're a football fan, tell them you want a cake in the shape of Dick Butkus' head -- or John Madden, if you've got more than 100 people. If you're a Star Trek fan, tell your bride you want a Mr. Spock impersonator as your best man who will say in his toast, "After today, I now understand this human emotion called love."

The whole thing sounds like a foolproof escape plan, which would explain why married guys are the ones who keep thinking of it. But for one groom who is organizing a Simpsons themed wedding, it seems to have either backfired or fulfilled his deepest dream.

24 is stopping the clock for a little while

by Brad Trechak, posted Sep 6th 2008 3:01PM
24Fox's 24 is taking a break from filming so producers can rethink the storylines for the upcoming season. The two-hour special for November is still in the can and shouldn't be affected by this.

This could be an example of analysis paralysis. Due to the writers' strike, the show was not broadcast at all last season. They had a year's break to think it through. They're having second thoughts about the storyline this late in the game? Considering the wait that fans have already had to go through (though no fault of the producers), this better be a kick-ass season.

Of course, the show isn't being broadcast until January and they already have plenty of material ready that wasn't broadcast due to the aforementioned strike. There is ample time to make whatever changes they need and have it ready for broadcast.

I do wonder what sort of enemy Jack Bauer will be fighting in the next season. I'm hoping for Cobra Commander from the upcoming G.I. Joe movie.
