Joan Collins Says She'd Love to Return for a New 'Dynasty'

Joan CollinsEarlier this year the much-vaunted 'Dallas' reboot became a reality. Now, in news to gladden the hearts of fans of shoulder-pads, sequins and shoving matches everywhere, Joan Collins has said that she'd love to return to TV for a second round of 'Dynasty,' should the opportunity arise.

And that's not all. She reportedly let slip that there may even be a script in place. According to 'The Sun,' Collins said she's been in "constant contact" with 'Dynasty' creator Esther Shapiro, "and apparently they've written a script."

But, Collins added, "I can't tell you anything about it -- it's top, top secret. ... I would love to be Alexis again because it was a great role."

A Battlestar Galactica movie reboot ... say what?

Battlestar GalacticaThere have already been rumors, but we all know how studios have this annoying tendency to milk franchises until they're dead, and then milk them some more before the corpse gets too cold. Well, Universal seems to think that now that Ron Moore's operatic space war version of the show is done, now would be a great time for Bryan Singer to direct yet another reboot of the Battlestar Galactica franchise.

Singer is said to be a big fan of the original 70's series, but the supposedly $10 million dollar paycheck for Singer probably also has an effect on his directorial willingness. Despite the talent behind it, this reboot is a bad idea. Singer did X-Men, but he also did Superman Returns. Plus, too many reboots in too short a time would only be confusing to people.

Of course, this time creator Glen Larson is on board to produce. While it didn't turn out so bad last time Larson wasn't involved, not having him would be like remaking Buffy without Joss Whedon. Oh, wait.

ReBoot gets a reboot

ReBootNo, this is not an episode of Retro Squad. The kids TV show ReBoot is coming back to awe a new generation of tweens in the form of three feature-length animated films. For those of you not in-the-know, ReBoot was one of the very first commercial computer-generated projects. This way before Toy Story or Shrek or the slew of cheesy 3-D animated children shows on the tube today.

Tony Jay dead

Tony JayYes, the headline would usually include the "at (age)," but I can't find anything that says what his age was. Nothing on the IMDB, and nothing on his site either.

You would recognize Jay's voice as much as his face, as he voiced an incredible number of cartoons over the years, including The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Reboot, Spiderman, Teen Titans, Superman, The Mighty Ducks, Gargoyles, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, as well as a massive number of videogames: World of Warcraft, X-Men Legends, Lionhearts, various Star Trek games, Return to Castle Wolfenstein, and just about every other video game ever made that used a voice. But he had live action roles in TV and movies too, including Lois and Clark, Newhart, The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr., Mr. Belvedere, Twin Peaks, Beauty and the Beast, Eerie, Indiana, Matlock, Murphy Brown, Picket Fences, and The Golden Girls. He was also a Royal Shakespeare Company actor and a singer.

He died earlier this week after surgery for removal of a non-cancerous growth on his lungs.
