Werewolves and rednecks and misfits, oh my! Also: space thieves, performance art, Big Bads, Mark Wahlberg and other scary things.
Remember when Fox announced that they were creating a lady-werewolves-in-the-city show called Bitches? Well, since that idea seems to have thankfully returned to the wild, they've shifted their focus to a show about rival Alaskan werewolf clans called Howl. Of course, by the time this show actually comes out, everyone will be into mummies.
In great redneck guest star news, ATV-riding, beer-can tossing wrestler "Stone Cold" Steve Austin will guest star on Chuck as a close-combat expert named "Hugo Panzer," and My Name is Earl alumnus Jaime Pressly will guest-star on Rules of Engagement as a surrogate mother for Patrick Warburton's character and his wife. Will this finally get us to watch RoE? Only if Austin gives us a Stone Cold Stunner.
Don't worry, guys, James Franco's guest stint on General Hospital was just performance art. Why tell the Wall Street Journal? He's telling everybody.
Mark Wahlberg would like to see two more seasons of Entourage, and then a movie. As long as we don't have to watch any of it, we will agree to those terms, and consider this a victory.
The British answer to Heroes, titled Misfits, is about juvenile delinquents who get super powers and... is actually pretty awesome, based on the one episode we've seen. So, Britain -- can we trade? Please?
Firefly fans, prepare to get your hopes up. This trailer for the British TV show Slingers, about a group of thieves who operate in space in the year 2263, is only a proposal for the series. And since it looks awesome, it will likely A. never get made, or B. get made, then get unceremoniously cancelled. The future is now!
Apparently, Barack Obama is not the Big Bad that Buffy the Vampire Slayer has been fighting in her "Season 8" comic books from Dark Horse Comics. A recently released publicity image of the cover, with Obama's head on the body of unmasked villain Twilight, was actually a gag by the publisher. We're thoroughly pleased.
Finally, there will be an exhibit of Lost poster art in Los Angeles in a couple of weeks. Those of you flying in from Australia... good luck with that.
