47 Ronin Set Visit: Keanu Reeves Interview

by Edward Douglas

The journalists on set got to speak to Keanu Reeves fairly early in our visit, all of us sitting around a table in a conference room specifically set up just for that purpose. It may surprise some who only know Reeves from his movie roles what a good interview Reeves can be, but he covered a lot of territory in this interview in which he talked a lot about being a Westerner taking on so many Japanese traditions, from the story to the language to the samurai's "bushido."

Here's a challenge for you ONTD! Japanese show makes gay guys blow straight guys.

JAPAN: Gay man tries to bring straight porn star to climax in ‘Orgasm Wars’

Yesterday’s prostate exam segment on the Today Show, which saw Matt Lauer and Al Roker both get their cornholes fingered on live TV, really raised the bar on what television can accomplish. But today I bring you a reminder that how ever far we’ve come, Japan is still three steps ahead. As they prove in this segment from “Orgasm Wars,” in which a gay porn star attempts to bring a male porn star to climax against his will. That’s right, while we may have consensual, non-sexual butt fingering, they’ve got competitive, adversarial blow jobs. Taking place inside some sort of fancy glory hole contraption. Advantage: Japan.

Here’s the video. I don’t know if I’d call it SFW, but there isn’t any nudity or anything. There’s a better chance you’ll get fired for laughing too hard.

Myah Marie SLAMS reports she sang in place of Britney

'I most certainly can't take credit': Britney Spears' backup singer denies claims she dubbed pop star's upcoming album... as track list is revealed


Britney Spears was hit by dubbing allegations over the weekend after her single Passenger from her upcoming album was leaked online.

Fans took to Twitter, alleging Britney's longtime backup singer Myah Marie provided the bulk of the vocals for the song from new album Britney Jean.

But Myah has hit back at the claims, insisting she 'most certainly cannot take credit for [Britney's] tremendous talent as a singer.'

Lady Gaga: I'm 'Too Beautiful' on Glamour Cover

Lady Gaga was both grateful to Glamour and critical of the magazine while being honored Monday night at its Women of the Year awards in New York.

Her complaint? That the photo of her on Glamour's December cover is simply "too beautiful."

In fact, the pop star, 27, said she shouldn't have been the cover in the first place.

"Who really belongs on the cover is not me. If I could forfeit my Glamour cover, I would give it to Malala," she said, referring to Malala Yousafzai, the 16-year-old Pakistani education activist who was shot by the Taliban last year – and who was also among Glamour's honorees Monday.

ALMA Award Winning Actress Jennifer López works on her new thriller!

She plays an older woman who has an affair with a 17-year-old boy in The Boy Next Door.
But Jennifer Lopez wasn’t exactly dressed for seduction as she filmed scenes for the movie dressed down in jeans and a striped top in Los Angeles on Tuesday.

Jennifer, 44, wore minimal make-up, pulled her brown hair back off her face and kept warm between takes in a large, and not particularly sexy, green puffa jacket. Wedge sandals were the only girly part of her outfit.
It’s a busy time for the actress as she was also on set on Monday night with co-star John Corbett, who plays her former husband.

Jennifer was dressed in the same outfit she wore on Tuesday as they worked on scenes where she takes out the trash while engaged in a heated discussion with him.

Liam Hemsworth Is "Extremely Happy" for Ex Miley Cyrus, Says He's Not Dating Eiza González

Liam Hemsworth is finally ready to discuss his love life. Until now, the Australian actor had not publicly addressed his September breakup with Miley Cyrus, his fiancé of 16 months, nor had he talked about his fleeting hookup with Mexican actress Eiza González. The 23-year-old broke his silence while promoting The Hunger Games: Catching Fire with costar Woody Harrelson.

Asked where he stands with Cyrus today, Hemsworth offered a diplomatic response. "I'm extremely happy for all of her success," he said of the 20-year-old pop star, who just announced that she'll be hitting the road with Icona Pop and Sky Ferreira in 2014.

He also confirmed that things with González ended as quickly as they began.

"I don't have a lady at the moment," the actor told Extra.

Harrelson then offered to set Hemsworth up with another A-list celebrity: Oprah Winfrey "Who knows? I don't want to count anything out," the young star laughed. "She's a wonderful woman, very strong woman."

Perhaps Hemsworth should set his sights on someone else, however, as the TV mogul has been in a monogamous relationship with Stedman Graham since 1986.

Cyrus first opened up about her broken engagement to Hemsworth during an Oct. 11 appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. "I keep saying I'm the happiest I've ever been, and that's not even a dig," the pop star said. "That's just me, because I really am genuinely happy finally with myself which I think sometimes it takes you separating yourself from someone else to really be happy with who you are."

Paramount is developing a TV adaptation of 'Ghost'

Paramount is working on a pilot for Ghost, a TV series based on the cinematic tearjerker starring Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore. The 1990 film about a murdered man who tries to avenge his death as a ghost won two Oscars for Best Original Screenplay and Best Supporting Actress (Whoopi Goldberg), but is perhaps better known for its famous pottery wheel scene.

The studio hired writers Akiva Goldsman (who won an Oscar for A Beautiful Mind) and Jeff Pinkner, who worked with Goldman on Fringe. Paramount launched a new TV division over the summer. It hopes to spin old hits (like Ghost) into small screen successes, as well as develop new projects.

Nathan Stewart-Jarrett for Mr. Porter

Mr Nathan Stewart-Jarrett's career may be in the ascendancy, but from the point of view of his inner geek, you suspect that he's going to find it difficult to top his most recent role. In Dom Hemingway, a new British crime caper starring Mr Jude Law, the 27-year-old actor plays the love interest of Ms Emilia Clarke - otherwise known as Daenerys Targaryen of Game of Thrones fame. It was an experience that he tactfully describes as "a bit of an honour".

IndieWire Playlist Dishes Out The Good, The Bad, And The "Meh." About "Thor: The Dark World"

After rolling out first in the rest of the world, this past weekend saw the U.S. release of "Thor: The Dark World," the third adventure to feature the Norse god of thunder, after "Thor" and "The Avengers," and the eighth movie in Marvel's cinematic masterplan. As you might have assumed, the movie's a massive hit: an $86 million opening weekend, to add to the $240 million it's already taken abroad.

But unlike this summer's "Iron Man 3," it hasn't been met with absolute love. An A- Cinemascore suggests that Joe Public is having fun with it, but critical responses are more muted: we called it "the most deeply flawed Marvel movie since 'Iron Man 2' " and the film holds the lowest Rotten Tomatoes and Metacritic score of any Marvel film to date. With the film now in release pretty much everywhere, we wanted to dig a little deeper into it, so as we've done with many major movies before, we've laid out what we think worked (or was Thor-some) and what we think didn't (Thor-ful) about the movie. Take a look below... and duh, spoilers ahead.

Poster and teasers for Darren Aronofsky's "Noah"

The last time we talked about Darren Aronofsky's Biblical epic "Noah," the conversation was all about the battle that was/is going on behind the scenes over the final cut. The issues seem to surround the third act, with it being described as "a major challenge" and the studio worried about the reception from Christian audiences after a series of test screenings. And unlike the brouhaha surrounding "World War Z," Paramount and the filmmaker have both remained mum about whatever troubles are going on this time around. Why? Well, there's a $125 million movie to market.

It looks like the first trailer for the movie is right around the corner, as Entertainment Tonight has dropped a first look at the footage that will be coming in the spot. And unlike the bootleg trailer that floated a couple weeks ago, this is obviously much crisper and cleaner, and more effectively sells the epic scope of the endeavor by the simple fact that you can see what's going on. Interestingly, the movie is still being tinkered with even as the promo machine starts rolling with The Los Angeles Film Critics Association tweeting that another test screening went down last night.

But it looks like cylinders are firing to hit the spring release date of March 28, 2014.

Isla Fisher Told Julianne Hough to Wipe Off Her Blackface on Halloween

Friends don't let friends wear offensive Halloween costumes. Isla Fisher knew Julianne Hough was flirting with disaster when she showed up to a Halloween party on Oct. 25 in blackface makeup, but her efforts to save the Dancing With the Stars alum from controversy turned out to be too little, too late.

A source reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly that the Great Gatsby actress, 37, "was mortified" when she saw Hough, 25, dressed as Orange Is the New Black character Crazy Eyes, complete with orange prison attire, a knotted 'do, and darkened skin. (Crazy Eyes is played in the Netflix original series by Uzo Aduba.)

In an attempt to help, the Wedding Crashers comedienne recommended that Hough "go to the bathroom and wipe her face off," the source says. (Fisher's rep denies that she intervened.) "Isla hoped she got to Julianne before photos were taken," the insider adds.

No such luck. Pictures of the Safe Haven star in costume quickly made the rounds online, sparking outrage and criticism. By the next day, the backlash was so intense that Hough felt compelled to issue an apology on Twitter.

"I am a huge fan of the show Orange Is the New Black, actress Uzo Aduba, and the character she has created," Ryan Seacrest's ex wrote on Oct. 26. "It certainly was never my intention to be disrespectful or demeaning to anyone in any way. I realize my costume hurt and offended people and I truly apologize."

Aduba's OITNB costar Laverne Cox, for one, believes Hough simply didn't know any better. "I wasn't offended," she revealed to Us a few days after the incident. "I thought it was a shame that she is in this country, that she would wear blackface and not understand the historical implications of that. I don't think Julianne is making a specific informed choice to comment on blackness. I just think it's out of this ignorance. That's really sad."

Sinking to New Lows: NBC Greenlights Shane Dawson Workplace Comedy

Shane Dawson may soon be heading from computer screen to TV screen, as the YouTube sensation has set a halfhour comedy at NBC.

“Losin’ It,” from Sony TV and based on Dawson’s real life experiences, is a single-cam laffer set at a suburban weight loss center franchise. The workplace is thrown into upheaval when its most successful client decides to share his inspiration by becoming a consultant there, only to then find himself promoted to manager by the end of his first day. “The Big C” creator Darlene Hunt will pen “Losin’ It” and exec produce alongside Dawson. Will Gluck and Richie Schwartz are also slated to exec produce through their Olive Bridge banner. (Gluck and Hunt both hold overall deals at Sony TV.)

Dawson’s producing partner Lauren Schnipper is also on board to produce the comedy. Dawson has a sizable digital footprint, with over nine million subscribers across his three YouTube channels, over 1.5 million Twitter followers, and over 3 million Facebook page likes. He has been in talks for TV projects over the last few years, often discussing his concepts and network meetings with his YouTube subscribers during comment response vids posted to his channels.

Dawson, Hunt and Gluck are all repped by UTA. Additionally, Hunt is repped by McKuin Frankel, Dawson by attorney Matt Saver, and Gluck by Sloane Offer.

Live Nation to buy the management companies behind U2 and Madonna

Live Nation Entertainment, the giant concert company that includes Ticketmaster, is in advanced negotiations to buy the management companies behind U2 and Madonna, according to several people with direct knowledge of the talks.

If the deal is consummated, it will further strengthen Live Nation’s already deep ties with U2 and Madonna, two of the highest-earning and most durable pop acts of the last 30 years.

As part of the deal, Live Nation would pay more than $30 million for both Principle Management, the company of U2’s longtime manager, Paul McGuinness, as well as Maverick, run by Guy Oseary, Madonna’s manager, according to these people, who spoke on the condition that they not be named because they were not authorized to discuss the deal publicly.

In what would be one of the most surprising shifts in years among the forces behind pop megastars, Mr. Oseary, 41, would take over the day-to-day management of U2. Mr. McGuinness, 62, who has managed U2 almost since its inception — and in doing so became one of the most highly esteemed executives in the music business — would become Principle’s chairman, with a role that was not fully clear.

“I am delighted that Live Nation, who with Arthur Fogel have been our long term touring partners, have joined us in creating this powerful new force in artist management. I have long regarded Guy Oseary as the best manager of his generation, and there is no one else I would have considered to take over the day-to-day running of our business.”

According to Pollstar, a concert industry trade magazine, the top 10 highest-grossing tours in history include four by U2 and two by Madonna. U2’s last tour, called 360, had more than $700 million in ticket sales and was seen by nearly seven million people around the world.

Live Nation, which besides its concert promotion and ticketing business manages the careers of some 200 acts through its Artist Nation division, has had close ties with both U2 and Madonna for years. In 2007, it struck a $120 million deal with Madonna that covered touring and recorded music rights for a decade, and it later sold the recording rights to Universal. In 2008, it made a deal with U2 to handle the band’s touring and merchandising exclusively for 12 years.

Along with other arrangements Live Nation made around that time with Jay Z, Shakira and Nickelback, those deals came to symbolize a major change in the music business, as artists looked to concerts, merchandise and myriad other outlets to make up for lost record sales.
Happy for Guy Oseary, he's a great manager.

Xbox One won’t play games out of the box, requires day-one patch


If you unbox and turn on an Xbox One on November 22nd, make sure you have an internet connection nearby. Microsoft has revealed that a day-one patch for its upcoming next-gen console will be a requirement to play games and access basic apps on the console. "Functionally, you will be able to do very little without taking the day-one update," said Microsoft’s senior director of Xbox product management Albert Penello in an interview with Engadget recently. Out of the box you can do “nothing” according to Penello: “You need the Day One update,” he said. Microsoft confirmed Penello's comments to The Verge. "An initial, one-time system update is required for your Xbox One to function," says a Microsoft spokesperson.

The day-one patch, expected to take around 15 or 20 minutes to download, will update the Xbox One to the latest dashboard operating system. Microsoft previously revealed details of the day-one patch in June, but it wasn’t known that the console would be rendered useless without it. "You're gonna need to take this update. It's not gonna be really an optional thing,” adds Penello, noting that a lot of the new apps come with the update. Sony has a similar update for its PlayStation 4 console. Out of the box, the PlayStation 4 won’t play Blu-rays or DVDs without Sony’s patch. However games are still expected to function out of the box on the PS4.


This is turning into a real-life infomercial, tbh.

'Love Actually,' to Andrew Lincoln, is perfect: The actor looks back, 10 years later


Ten years ago, Love Actually hit theaters, and with it came an endlessly re-watchable Christmastime collection of love stories that are actually, well, all around us. The film explored 10 separate vignettes — some heartwarming and hilarious, some tragic and heartbreaking – that saw its characters “get the sh–” kicked out of them by love. To celebrate the film’s legacy, we reached out to the film’s cast to talk about their storylines, and for the rest of the week, we’ll be sharing some of their behind-the-scenes takes.

Richard Curtis’ ultimate romantic comedy contained a treasure trove of iconic scenes: Hugh Grant as the prime minister dancing through the halls, young Joanna (Olivia Olson) singing “All I Want for Christmas Is You” at the end, Colin Firth’s Jamie and Lúcia Moniz’s Aurélia swimming in the pond to save Jamie’s work.

But one of the most iconic scenes from the film is undoubtedly the story of lovelorn Mark, played by Andrew Lincoln, who quietly pines for Keira Knightley’s Juliet, the wife of his best friend Peter (Chiwetel Ejiofor). For those who need a refresher, Mark visits Juliet after she awkwardly discovers the truth — and uses a stack of posters showing the words he can’t express out loud.

And though Lincoln now slays zombies as Rick on The Walking Dead, he had no problem reminiscing about his scenes in the film. The actor talked to EW about his role, what story he wishes he could have been a part of, and what happened to his character after the film’s events. (Hint: The undead are involved.)

Reality Show Addict! Naomi Campbell 'Prefers' The Only Way Is Essex To Made In Chelsea

Supermodel Naomi Campbell has confessed to being a huge fan of ITV's reality series The Only Way Is Essex and admits she has stayed “loyal” to it while she gave up watching Made In Chelsea.

The model is currently a judge on Sky Living's The Face UK, a modelling competition series, alongside two other supermodel coaches, Caroline Winberg and Erin O'Connor.

''I watched 'Made In Chelsea' when Chloe Green was on it, but I fell off watching it after that. The Only Way is Essex was the first one I watched, so I stayed loyal to that,” she told Heat magazine. ''I like a bit of 'Downton Abbey' too.''


Adding: ''I guess I could call last Sunday a day off. I did try to lie in bed, but I feel a tremendous guilt for doing it. I don't know why, I just do.''

The 43-year-old stunner also revealed by appearing on her new modelling show, the public get to see the “real Naomi Campbell".

''Everything you see on camera is how I am. I'm not playing for the camera, for me there's a fine line between a reality show and real. I'm a Gemini, I don't hold things in,'' she continued.

Rihanna’s Pacific Palisades home for rent

A monthly rent of $65,000 might seem like a lot, but it’s actually a temporary 35 percent discount on this modern home in the Pacific Palisades area of Los Angeles. The real rent is $100,000 a month starting in January, according to the listing. Why the high price? The house measures 9,595 square feet -- and it’s owned by Rihanna.

The singer bought the home just over a year ago for around $12 million, but she’s been plagued by break-ins. In February, a man broke into her neighbor’s home and slept in a bed he believed to be hers. In June, police arrested a man on the roof of her home, and in October, another man was reportedly arrested after an attempted break-in.

Why We Need a Carmilla Movie (And Who Should Be In It)


Similar to zombies and witches, vampires are popular in today’s culture. From the animalistic villains of 30 Days of Night to the romantic heroes of Twilight and True Blood, vampires are showing up in all forms of pop culture and for all ages and genres. Both Twilight and True Blood are coming to a close, leaving us with classical approaches to vampires including Dario Argento’s film version and NBC’s television version of Bram Stoker’s famous Dracula. Dracula is one the the most reproduced stories of all time and although it’s a classic that I always enjoy, it’s not the only gothic vampire tale worth telling.

Starz to Rename One of its Encore Channels ‘Encore Black’

encore black

*Starz has made changes to its Encore pack of channels citing the nation’s evolving demographics and focusing on groups who turn up in numbers within the premium pay TV category.

That translates to shuffling some of its eight Encore-branded channels to target baby boomers, African American and Latino audiences and the company acquiring older TV series to serve them – something rarely done on premium cable, which is traditionally built on movies and original series.

Beginning Dec. 2, 2013, Encore Drama will be replaced by Encore Black, a channel catering to the African-American community, traditionally over-indexed on premium channel viewership.
The channel’s programming lineup will include “Martin Lawrence’s 1st Amendment Stand Up” and off-network series “What’s Happening!!,” “Diff’rent Strokes,” “227,” and “Amen.”

The December launch will spotlight actor Samuel L. Jackson with films such as “Unbreakable,” “Losing Isaiah,” “Freedomland” and “One Eight Seven.”

Axe hangs over X Factor US as ratings plummet below 4M

The future of The X Factor USA appears uncertain after its ratings dropped to a new low – and even Nicole Scherzinger made her feelings about the show clear.

While Simon Cowell had predicted big things for the American equivalent of ITV’s Saturday night staple, just 3.6m viewers are reported to have tuned in to the most recent edition of the show, currently in its third series.

And speculation is rife that the show will not return for a fourth run, with some reports even suggesting it could be axed ‘within days’.

Meanwhile X Factor UK judge Nicole Scherzinger has expressed concerns to Cowell – telling the mogul that he needs to focus more on his efforts across the Atlantic.

‘Simon, honey, you need to worry about those ratings in the US!’ she pointed out. ‘Our show is way better than the American one.’

Cowell – who is the only male panellist alongside Paulina Rubio, Kelly Rowland and Demi Lovato – had reportedly been aiming to attract 20m viewers to the series when it first began, although ratings topped out at around the 12m mark.

By contrast The Voice USA – currently in its fifth series – pulled in an audience of 10.2m for its most recent edition last week.

The X Factor USA also fell victim to an unfortunate voting glitch during last week’s live show which resulted in all 13 finalists having to perform again the following night in a bid to win votes.

Speculation over the show’s future may also further fuel rumours that Cowell is set to return to the panel of The X Factor UK in 2014, following Gary Barlow’s recent announcement that he would be leaving at the end of the current series.

YouTube co-founder wonders 'why the f***' comments require a Google+ account

Jawed Karim joins those slamming Google's changes to video site, which enforce use of its Google+ social network.

After clearing his profile of all but the very first video uploaded to the site, YouTube's co-founder Jawed Karim added another comment – fuelling the controversy over Google's changes to its comments system.

On April 23rd 2005, Karim uploaded YouTube's first video, of himself at the zoo. But his profile shows nothing else until the question asked yesterday on his channel:

"why the fuck do i need a google+ account to comment on a video?"

Google's overhaul of YouTube comments has sparked controversy: the YouTube video announcing the change has nearly 30,000 comments, many including harsh criticism of the move through the medium of ASCII art.

Warner Bros. To Take Smartphone Game Temple Run To The Big Screen


Gravity's David Heyman to produce

Angry Birds is getting a movie. Assassin's Creed is getting a movie. And now, if a deal with Gravity producer David Heyman, Warner Bros. and game creators Imangi Studios goes through, Temple Run is getting a movie.

That's right, Temple Run - the endless running game that sees an Indiana Jones-a-like explorer who's just stolen an idol from a jungle temple pegging it away from evil beasties at a brisk pace, dodging death traps as he hoovers up gold coins and magical power-ups.

If it sounds a bit too far fetched - and a little bit too much like the beginning of Raiders - fret a little less, because there won't be any power-ups in the film. At least, we hope so.

The original game was released in 2011, quickly becoming a phenomenon as bored commuters, excitable kids and pure-and-simple fans of a good game got hooked, and soon it was at the top of the iTunes free game charts, using the freemium model of free-to-download-but-in-game-add-ons-cost-more to earn its way in the world. Spin-offs such as Temple Run: Brave and Temple Run: Oz followed in its wake, and copycats tried to cash-in with Temple Guns, Temple Jump and Pyramid Run.

Game studio Naughty Dog and their Uncharted team must be thinking about whether they can take their fellow Indy wannabe Nathan Drake to cinemas sooner rather than later. No release date is earmarked for the Temple Run project, but considering the traffic jam that's hitting 2015, sometime in 2016 or later is a safe bet.


Lol. It'll be interesting to see how this turns out.

Apatow has certainly raised the bar with that comment!

This news comes a week or two after Comedy Central renewed Key & Peele for a 4th season.

Chris Pratt in early talks for "Jurassic World"

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Chris Pratt, who leads next summer’s Marvel movie Guardians of the Galaxy, is in early talks to star in Jurassic World, Universal’s latest installment of the Jurassic Park movie series.

Pratt would star as the movie’s male lead, a rugged ex-military man, whose foil is the already cast Bryce Dallas Howard, who plays a smart corporate scientist.

The part was initially earmarked for Josh Brolin but reports of Brolin’s involvement proved premature as the actor’s talks didn’t get very far. The same could happen here. There is an offer on the table but it it's still early going.

Ty Simpkins and Nick Robinson are also part of the cast, playing Howard’s nephews. Colin Trevorrow is directing the movie, which is being produced by Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley.

Trevorrow and Steven Spielberg, who is exec producing, are working in tandem to handpick the actors for the movie.

Pratt may be on the verge of stardom and Jurassic could tip that balance.

He has the potential to becoming a leading man with his portrayal of Star-Lord in Guardians of the Galaxy, based on a group of lesser known heroes but since it carries the Marvel imprimatur, will have massive awareness. If he does eventually end up doing Jurassic, it puts Universal in prime position to capitalize on Pratt’s growing stardom.

Nick Cannon Slams the Surging Popularity of Slave Movies in Hollywood

If you’ve been paying close attention to the latest movies centered around black characters for the last few years, you can probably notice a trend. The increasing popularity of slave movies as well as films centered around blacks being maids and butlers is pretty hard to ignore. And although these movies keep finding a way to the big screen to a point of redundancy, they seem to instantly garner critical acclaim and Oscar buzz.

Apparently Nick Cannon has noticed the trend too because he recently took to his Twitter account to slam slave movies. And with all the Oscar buzz currently surrounding the hit film “12 Years a Slave” and the recent confirmation that “Roots” will be remade, his timing surely can’t be coincidental.

But it looks like the popularity of slave films has inspired Nick Cannon to make a different kind of movie that shows Blacks in a much-needed light. Read the tweets under the cut

The Dunphys of “Modern Family” might not eat at “Bob’s Burgers” — and fans of the shows might not eat at the same restaurants, either.

The two comedies are at opposite ends of the spectrum in terms of their average viewers’ median incomes. The median “Modern Family” viewer in the 18-49 demographic rake in $81,100 annually, according to Nielsen data. “Bob’s Burgers” watchers in the demo, on the other hand, earn around $48,000 per year.

Steve McQueen to play Nightwing in "Arrow"

Not content with Black Canary, Arsenal, the Huntress, Deathstroke, Deadshot, Bronze Tiger, China White, Doctor Ivo, or upcoming characters like The Flash and Amanda Waller, Arrow has just added Batman's protégé Nightwing to its ever-increasing cast, to be played by Steve McQueen of The Vampire Diaries fame.

Apparently McQueen is pretty excited about the role, as he tweeted this pic of himself getting ready for the show:

Here's the million dollar question: If the rumors about Man of Steel 2 adding in members of the extended Bat-family are true, could Nightwing be the character that ties the DC movie-verse and the DC TV-verse together? Could McQueen be playing Nightwing in both? Or will DC/WB keep a firm line between church (TV) and state (movies), either by keeping them separate or hiring another Nightwing for the movie? Hmm...


Better start doing squats to build that Nightwing ass, boo

Coming Soon: True Detective

True Detective, starring Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson premieres January 12, 2014.

HBO is bringing a new detective drama onto the air next year, and the network has released a dark new trailer to introduce it to viewers. The show, True Detective, will star Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson as detectives for its first season — but, like series such as American Horror Story, subsequent seasons will revolve around a new set of characters and a new mystery, rather than continuing the initial plot. The show kicks off as a murder from 1995 comes back under investigation in 2002, and will follow the pair of detectives across different timelines. It's set to begin airing next year on Sunday, January 12th, and if the series' eight episodes are all as eerie as the trailer suggests, it could turn into yet another hit for HBO.
