Meanwhile, like in the comic books, Cohan's Maggie will be a love interest for Steve Yuen's Glenn.

Diane KeatonIt appears Diane Keaton won't be making her TV series debut this season.

According to Deadline Hollywood, HBO passed on its Keaton-starring comedy series, 'Tilda,' loosely based on Deadline blogger Nikki Finke. The show would've followed a powerful but reclusive writer but fell apart despite high-profile names like Keaton, director Bill Condon and producer Alan Poul aboard.

Ellen Page and Jason Patric were also booked to co-star.

Fear Itself: Eater

Fear Itself - (S01E05) NBC's website says that writer Richard Chizmar's first big project with his writing partner Jonathan Schaech is an adaptation of Stephen King's From A Buick 8. Then, they say that Jonathan Schaech's first big project with his writing partner Richard Chizmar is an adaptation of Stephen King's Black House. I'm not horribly familiar with either of them, though they've written for Masters of Horror and Heroes, nor the director Stuard Gordon (Re-Animator). Yes, that means I've never seen Re-Animator.

I am familiar with Elisabeth Moss who played the female rookie officer, though more for her work on Mad Men than The West Wing. She's one of those girls who isn't classically beautiful and because of that can play both the pretty girl when done up and the mousy girl when needed. For this installment she is cast in the latter role and put opposite the towering Stephen R. Hart as a serial killer named "The Eater." He doesn't even have to be anything more than his 6'11" in height and he's scary as all hell, but with the teeth and make-up added here, he's downright terrifying.
