There were a couple of interesting bits of casting news, a first look, and I have a question.
First, we got to see that awkward moment when you meet your replacement:
Titans stars Brenton Thwaites, Teagan Croft, Anna Diop, Ryan Potter, Alan Ritchson, Minka Kelly, Bruno Bichir, Lindsey Gort, and Seamus Dever and starts October 12th. IGN
Did you see the cute promo for the CW’s new Sunday night programming that features the ladies of Charmed and Supergirl?
The CW ‘s Arrowverse annual crossover event has it’s Lois Lane. If you were a fan of Grimm, than you will be excited to know that Elizabeth Tulloch has been cast as the sassy reporter that captures Clark Kent’s heart. The crossover will span over three consecutive nights and Tyler Hoechlin (Clark Kent/Superman) is slated to be in all three episodes. Deadline
One superhero show that is not part of the Arrowverse has a new cast member. Black Lightning has cast Sofia Vassilieva as the Looker. THR Here is a little intel on the character. The Looker is Emily Briggs, who was a mousy bank teller who lived a quiet life with her husband. Until she was kidnapped by people from the underground civilization known as Abyssia. A group of heroes named The Outsiders rescue her and during the battle in Abyssia, we learn of Emily’s heritage and eventually she has a meta-human moment and turns into a beauty with powers.
Breaking Bad‘s Aaron Paul has joined HBO’s Westworld, no details of who the character is and what his role is in the upcoming third season. EW
The cast for the upcoming NOS4A2 is rounding itself out with the casting of Zachary Quinto and Ashleigh Cummings. This show, based on a book series of the same name by Joe Hill, will air on AMC. Variety
We got our first look of Joaquin Phoenix’ The Joker, thanks to filmmaker Todd Phillips.
There has been a lot of talk of Jon Hamm becoming Batman. That would be interesting to see. What do you think about that?
Have you watched The First on Hulu? This little show that features Sean Penn who leads an ensemble cast in this near-future drama about a crew of astronauts attempting to become the first humans on Mars. Under the direction of visionary aerospace magnate Laz Ingram (Natascha McElhone), the crew contends with peril and personal sacrifice as they undertake the greatest pioneering feat in human history.
I watched all of the episodes and it was a little hard in the beginning, but once you get over the hump of the first two episodes…you will fall in love with the characters of the show. Especially, Anna Jacoby-Heron, who plays Denise Hagerty. She is Tom’s (Sean Penn) daughter and she is still in conflict over the loss of her mother and her father’s desire to return to space. We see her whole life. We see the moment that breaks her. We see the moment where she makes the hardest decision for her father’s sake and then there is a scene towards the end, in a staircase, and it brought me to tears.
I suggest you give this little show a shot.
One last thing. Today is the day! The Emmy Awards will air tonight and if you are a fan of the small screen, you have already started praying for the shows that you love.
The categories that are piquing my interest are:
Best Drama Series…this is a tough one to call and then they tossed in The Handmaid’s Tale, This is Us and The Crown. So, maybe next year for Game of Thrones.
Best Limited Series…oh TV gods, please let The Alienist win!
