It has been awhile since I've made a big entertainment update, so I'll give it a shot for you. There haven't been a lot of solid meaty this to talk about but some things have popped up, so we'll see.
Are you a fan of Kevin McKidd? Even if you don't watch Grey's Anatomy and have never wanted to watch it, there is an episode comine in March/April called “Suicide Is Painless". Yeah, that's a MASH reference there and it looks like it will be PTSD and Kevin McKidd centered. Rumors are that he kills it, too. He's been nothing but awesome on this show. And can I make mention of how AWESOME the triad of Mark, Callie and Arizona are? They're forming this little tribe of people and I love it. Keep Izzie off the show. It is MUCH better for it.
Supernatural got renewed for a sixth season and then the creator left as he'd told his five season story. So, that'll be all kinds of interesting to see what happens there.
Why wasn’t Kate’s name on the cave wall in Lost? Were there people that made it to the island that weren't candidates? It seems likely that is so but why? Did the MiB have his own candidates?
It seems that the Obama girls are Glee fans and have twisted mom and dad's arms a bit because the stars of Glee have been asked to perform at the White House’s annual Easter Egg Roll.
Columbia Pictures has hired Shane Black (he did Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang and Lethal Weapon) to direct Doc Savage. Which is interesting in a few ways.
Do you watch Caprica? I'm not sure if I like it yet or not - it seems to ride the line between interesting and creepy (and sometimes just overkill) but there is some awesomeness to it - http://www.chicagonow.com/blogs/show-patrol/2010/02/exclusive-caprica-producer-jane-espenson-explains-sam-adamas-tattoos.html
I love shows that build mythology.
Warner Brothers bought a controlling interest in Rocksteady. One might recall that there was this video game Rocksteady made last year... Had something to do with a guy in a suit with pointy ears... I have a feeling there will be a lot more to come here. WB and DC Entertainment are making a lot of moves that seem to make sense to me recently.
Buttercup is the newest toy to be introduced in the Toy Story 3 line-up. Yes, she's a unicorn. http://www.latinoreview.com/news/the-character-poster-is-filling-up-for-toy-story-3-9272?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+latinoreview+%28Latino+Review%29
Ian McShane is in negotiations to play the villain (AKA Blackbeard) in "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides," which makes it a HELL of a lot more interesting to me all at once.
According to a report on IGN, Gil Bellows has been cast as Smallville's Maxwell Lord. Huh.
It is confirmed that Paul McGuigan will be working on a show for BBC Scotland written by Grant Morrison and starring Stephen Fry. That's the hell of a combination of people. Paul described it as "If you know Grant's work you might have an idea of what it will be like. It’s like Twin Peaks meets Brigadoon!" There is more at Bleeding Cool if you're interested.
Bruce Willis is talking about a Die Hard 5. There isn't anything solid, yet, I think just press junket talk but... C'mon. Really? Ugh. He's also talking Unbreakable 2, which I'd be a little more interested in but still uncertain about.
Filming has started on The Tourist. This one is about an American tourist (Johnny Depp) who finds his life in danger when a female Interpol agent (Angelina Jolie) uses him as a dupe to flush out an elusive criminal with whom she once had an affair. Because that's all kinds of awesome.
Dietrich Bader will be on Chuck in the second half of the season as some Buy More upper level executive.
Thandie Newton, Jason Isaacs and David Tennant are set to be in "Retreat", reports Screen Daily . The film follows a couple (Newton and Isaacs) who are seeking to rebuild their relationship by taking time out on a remote island but their peace is shattered when they find a man in uniform (Tennant) half-dead who tells them there is a lethal virus killing millions on the mainland. DUN DUN DUN!!!
And.... I think that's it for now.
