Emmy-nominated actor Hugh Dancy (”Hannibal”) will guest star in a multi-episode arc on the award-winning drama series “Homeland”, starring Emmy and Golden Globe winner Claire Danes and Emmy and Tony winner Mandy Patinkin. Dancy will recur as John Zabel, a savvy Washington consultant who joins the White House as a new foreign-policy advisor to the President and a formidable opponent to Saul Berenson (Patinkin). The acclaimed series is currently in production on its eighth and final season and will premiere later this year.

Acclaimed filmmaker and sometime actor Werner Herzog revealed a little about his role in upcoming live-action “Star Wars” series “The Mandalorian” this week. “Now this is not a secret anymore, a small part, real small part, in ‘The Mandalorian,’ the ‘Star Wars’ sequel or whatever you call it. I like to do it because I know I’m good on screen, but only if I have to play a real villain.” [More…]
Maisie Williams teases a lot of death on the eighth and final season of “Game of Thrones”. “There’s a lot of death this year,” the actress, who stars as Arya Stark in the series, recently told Entertainment Weekly.  “After reading the scripts I went back and watched season 1 again because so much of it refers back to that season. There are so many scenes that will look similar. And also I watched just to remind myself of the arc I’ve taken already. I wanted Arya to go full circle and try for some kind of normalcy like when she was younger,” she told the publication.

Sony has settled on an Alex Rider, selecting Otto Farrant (”Mrs Wilson”, “War & Peace”) to headline the small-screen reboot of the Anthony Horowitz-created character.

The studio flung a wide net to fill the lead spot of a reluctant teen superspy who goes on global missions saving the world.  The series is based on a literary offering that comprises eleven novels, as well as five graphic novels, three short stories and a supplementary book. The first novel, “Stormbreaker”, was released in the United Kingdom in 2000 and was adapted into a movie in 2006 starring Alex Pettyfer.

The Sony Pictures Television-Eleventh Hour Films produced series will run an initial eight episodes.

WARNING: Embargoed for publication until 00:00:01 on 01/12/2018 – Programme Name: Mrs Wilson – TX: 11/12/2018 – Episode: n/a (No. n/a) – Picture Shows: Nigel (OTTO FARRANT) – (C) ©WP Films Ltd. – Photographer: Steffan Hill

“Das Boot”  director Andreas Prochaska is helming.

Prochaska said, “We met a lot of people for the role of Alex Rider, but when Otto entered the room, there was something magical about him. He has the perfect combination of youth and skilfulness, innocence and professionalism, to bring this iconic character to the screen.”

No network is currently attached to the series.

Actress Lili Simmons (“Banshee”, “Bone Tomahawk”) has been cast as Catwoman – an older incarnation of – on FOX’s “Gotham”.

Camren Bicondova, who has been playing a teenage version of Selina Kyle on the series, tells social media followers that she opted out of playing an older version of the final episode of the series.

I wanted to give (the character) Selina Kyle as much respect as possible. Some will say that giving her respect would include seeing the character through to the end of the show, which I understand. But, I firmly believe that part of leaving a legacy and being part of a legacy means knowing when to pass the torch to someone else. I was blessed to be the vessel for Selina Kyle for her formative teen years, and it only felt right to give someone else the torch for her adult self.

Simmons, 25, best known for her role as Rebecca Bowman on Cinemax series “Banshee”, stepped in to play the character for the finale – which features a 10-year-time jump. Bicondova assures fans she’s “perfect” for the role.

The woman who will be playing the older Selina Kyle is the glorious Lili Simmons, who, when I met [her] for the first time, made me cry tears of joy. She is perfect for this role, and she really wanted to do Selina right. We spoke about Selina Kyle for hours; I shared journal entries and scenes that were prime examples of Selina’s characteristics, and she shared thoughts of backstory for the 10 years that the audience doesn’t see. I want to clearly express how much thought and care went into this decision, as well as how much respect for the character and legacy of Selina Kyle there is within it.

Not only will the series finale of the ‘Batman’ series feature an older caped Crusader (18-year-old David Mazouz will again play the role) and Lili Simmons’ Catwoman, but Cameron Monaghan will finally make his full transformation into The Joker.

The series flash-forwards 10 years into the future, as Bruce is set to return to Gotham for the opening of the new Wayne Tower. A series of crimes leads Gordon to believe Penguin and The Riddler are up to their old tricks. However, when Bullock is framed for a murder, Gordon begins to piece together an even more sinister plot targeting the city, and a new figure emerges from the shadows to be the hero Gotham desperately needs in the all-new “The Beginning… ” series finale episode of GOTHAM airing Thursday, April 25 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
