Television News & Miscellany


He was in Love, Simon recently. The only other thing I’ve seen him in is a one-season cop show from a few years back:


Leslie Bibb is the only one of that cast I’ve heard of and while I like her, I wouldn’t build a big budget TV show around her.


That’s what I was wondering.


Matt Lanter skews pretty young.
I hope they haven’t merged the two roles or anything.



Don’t worry, they haven’t.



Veep is going to be back on March 31st


I hope so. Skyfox is my favorite character from that series, by far.



They’re making a movie of that now? After the author admitted and apologized for massively exaggerating the effects of Ebola?


It’s going to be measles, polo and tuberculosis now since those are back.


“Scary disease” is definitely something closer to home again. :frowning:


And now official:

  • Duhamel will play Sheldon Sampson/The Utopian, the leader of the storied superhero team The Union. But times have changed, and he doesn’t understand the world we live in anymore. Or his own family.

  • Daniels will play Walter Sampson/Brain-Wave, Sheldon’s older brother. A man of vast intellect and cunning who, unlike Sheldon, isn’t afraid to get his hands dirty. Or bloody.

  • Bibb will play Grace Sampson/Lady Liberty, Sheldon’s wife and one of the most powerful heroes on the planet. She doesn’t always agree with Sheldon, but strives to balance his ideals with the reality of the modern, often violent, world they live in.

  • Lanter will play George Hutchence/Skyfox, who was Sheldon Sampson’s closest friend and ally before turning against him and the rest of his teammates in The Union. Now considered the greatest supervillain in the world, George plots his revenge on the teammates he believes betrayed him.

  • Elena Kampouris ( American Odyssey ) will play Chloe Sampson, Grace and Sheldon’s daughter. Rejecting everything her parents stand for, Chloe has forged her own hedonistic path far away from them — a path that threatens to go against everything her parents have sworn to protect.

  • Newcomer Andrew Horton will play Brandon Sampson, Grace and Sheldon’s son. In training to assume the mantle of The Utopian and become the new leader of The Union, he struggles to live up to his father’s mythic legend.

  • Mike Wade (For the People ) will play Fitz Small/The Flare, the heart and soul of The Union. Despite suffering injuries that ended his career as a superhero, he continues to be one of the most valued members of the team, and is often the only thing holding them together in the face of an increasingly hostile world.


Thos is gonna be gooooooood!



I’m not optimistic about it finding a new home but I have enjoyed the ride immensely.


That…that Catch-22 trailer, kinda blows chunks.


I knew I recognized that name. He’s the guy from Timeless. I loved him in that show. He’ll kill it as Hutch.


He’s playing Hutch Sr.
