Outlander Is Finally Casting Brianna - And Why The Timing Is Verra Interesting

We have a feeling there's about to be a run on red hair dye in Hollywood. 

At long last, Outlander has issued a casting call for Brianna, which TVLine has exclusively obtained. And if you don't want to be spoiled about what's ahead on the Starz series, get yerself outta this wee post now. 

As fans of Diana Gabaldon's series of Outlander novels know, the second book --- Dragonfly in Amber, on which Season 2 is based --- involves a huge time jump and introduces Claire and Jamie's ginger-haired, statuesque 20-year-old daughter Brianna --- whose last name happens to be Randall. 

The official character description describes Brianna as a young 20-something American who's "strong-minded, intelligent beyond her years with an effortless charm and sparkling sense of humor (traits inherited from both her mother and father. She also has a scholastic mindset, with a healthy dose of American strength, having been born and bred in Boston under the watchful eye of professor and historian Frank Randall."

The part also calls for tall (5'8" and over) actresses who can play Brianna as "earthy and grounded and not girly" but "with the inexperience and vulnerability" that accompanies being a rather young woman. Hair color isn't an issue, the notice explains that the series will dye if necessary. 

Here's the biggest potential diversion from the books: Brianna, who's sometimes called Bree, is introduced at the start of the second novel in the 1960s-era Scotland. But the casting notice states that "Brianna has secretly followed her mother back in time to find the father she never met and the family she never knew" --- which does happen in the novels, but not until the fourth installment, Drums of Autumn. Hmm

Sony Pictures Television, which produces Outlander, confirmed that the casting process is underway. "Fans of the books will know that [Brianna]first appears in the second book, Dragonfly in Amber, which corresponds to the season we are currently filming, but continues on to have several major storylines as noted in the casting search, "Sony said in a statement.

The Dome Is Coming Down! CBS Cancels Steven Spielberg And Stephen King's Under The Dome After 3 Seasons

The dome is coming crashing down, now that CBS has cancelled sci-fi series Under the Dome.

Network chief Nina Tassler promised today (August 31) that Under the Dome's September 10 series finale will give viewers answers about its central mystery. 

A plot description for the finale hints that "many questions about [the dome's] origin and power will be answered" as "two groups of residents engage in one final conflict". 

"Two years ago, Under the Dome broke new ground in the summer and became an instant hit on CBS, as well as with viewers around the world," Tassler said in a statement. 

"Dome's event storytelling and multi-platform business model paved the way for more original summer programming with the successful rollouts of Extant and Zoo. 

"We're excited to present the final chapter in Chester's mill as the story comes full circle, with the Dome coming down as dramatically as it went up."

While it was originally billed as an event series, CBS surprised viewers by renewing Under the Dome for both a second and third season. 

Once Britt Robertson's character got killed off, the show never really ever recovered, the storylines just got worse and ridiculous. It did well to get three seasons!

R.I.P. Wes Craven

Legendary horror filmmaker Wes Craven died earlier today in his Los Angeles home.

The 76-year-old director was the iconic man behind the creation of the "A Nightmare on Elm Street" and "Scream" franchises, but he was also a prolific writer, producer and even novelist.

Though dabbling in dramas, Craven was also known for his horror work starting with the controversial "The Last House on the Left" in 1972 which he then followed with the original "The Hills Have Eyes" and its sequel along with the comic book adaptation "Swamp Thing".

The real breakthrough came in 1984 with the first "A Nightmare on Elm Street" which also launched the career of megastar Johnny Depp. He returned to the series twice penning the third entry and then writing and directing the meta-style "New Nightmare".

He also directed a bunch of standalone horror films like "Shocker," "The People Under the Stairs" and the true story inspired "The Serpent and the Rainbow"

He and writer Kevin Williamson went on to create the "Scream" franchise which he directed all four entries in. He also tried his hand at other genres including thrillers like "Red Eye," comedy with "Vampire in Brooklyn" and feel good drama with "Music of the Heart".

Wow what a legend. Those movies bring back a few memories hiding behind the sofa!

Syfy Renews Both "Killjoys" & "Dark Matter"

U.S. cable channel Syfy has ordered further seasons of its two recent space-set science-fiction series "Dark Matter" and "Killjoys" which both wrapped their initial runs this month.

"Dark Matter," from "Stargate" show runners Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie, will get a further thirteen episodes. That series, which averaged 1.8 million viewers during its first season, follows six mercenaries who awaken on a derelict spaceship with no memory of who they are and how they got there.

"Killjoys," from "Orphan Black" creator Michelle Lovretta, will score a further ten episodes. That show follows a trio of interplanetary bounty hunters who chase deadly warrants throughout a distant planetary system on the brink of a bloody class war. The first season averaged 1.5 million viewers.

Both shows will premiere their second seasons next Summer.

# 396 I stopped watching "Killjoys" after about five episodes I just wasn't feeling the vibes and just couldn't connect with the characters of the show.

On the other hand I've seen some good reviews regarding "Dark Matter" so I shall give that one a whirl! 
Season finale, sounds interesting Chris if the show brought some great twists.  smile

When Does Your Favorite Comic Book TV Show Come Back?

Gotham

Season Two Begins: September 21, 2015.

Where Last Season Left Off: Penguin emerged as the unexpected winner of Gotham's gang war, defeating Fish Mooney, Carmine Falcone and Don Maroni. Barbara Kean was locked up in Arkham after she tried to kill her ex-fiancee's new girlfriend Leslie Tompkins. And Bruce discovered that his father had a hidden staircase in his study.

What Might Happen This Season: While Gordon's quest to rid Gotham of corruption is aided by a new police captain, more future Batman villains will continue to appear. In addition to Firefly and Hugo Strange showing up in some capacity next season, a new version of the classic DC villain the Tigress will also appear and will shake Gotham's underworld up with the help of her brother Theo Galavan, a billionaire businessman with an unknown agenda. We'll also see the return of Jerome, the boy who may or may not become the Joker, as an Arkham inmate and ally to the recently incarcerated Barbara.

The Flash

Season Two Begins: October 6th, 2015

Where Last Season Left Off: Barry resisted the urge to save his mother and disrupt the timestream. After the Flash stopped the Reverse-Flash from returning to the future, Eddie committed suicide in order to erase the Reverse-Flash from the timeline. Barry, Iris and their friends had little time to mourn Eddie's sacrifice, as a giant timeline anomaly erupted over Central City, threatening to suck the whole city inside of it.

What Might Happen This Season: The Flash is meeting --- The Flash! Multiversal shenanigans will abound next season as Barry travels to Earth-2 and meets Jay Garrick, his counterpart from another universe. Fellow speedsters Wally West and Jessie Quick will also appear this season, and Barry will have a new love interest in Detective Patty Spivot. Opposing the Flash and friends is Zoom, a new speedster described as even more dangerous than the Reverse-Flash. Also, Harrison Wells will return to the show, although how and why has yet to be revealed.

Supergirl

Season One Begins: October 26th, 2015

What Might Happen This Season: Since the show hasn't come out, it's hard to say what direction the show will go. We know that a lot of classic Superman and Supergirl villains will appear, including Vartox, Reactron, Livewire, Hellgrammite and Non. We also know that T.O Morrow and Red Tornado will play a part in at least one episode and that a love triangle of sorts will emerge between Jimmy Olsen, Supergirl and Lucy Lane.

Jessica Jones

Season One Begins: November 20th, 2015.

What Might Happen This Season: We know that Jessica Jones will come into conflict with the Purple Man, who in the comics caused an end to Jones' superhero career. Both Patsy Walker (aka Hellcat) and Luke Cage will also play roles in the new Marvel/Netflix series. However, just as Daredevil kept its plot pretty close to the chest, don't expect to learn much about the show until Netflix releases all the episodes at once in November.

Legends of Tomorrow

Season One Begins: Sometime in January 2016

What Might Happen This Season: We know that the motley team of DC heroes and villains will fight Vandal Savage across both time and space and that Hawkman will also appear as a series regular. The annual Arrow/Flash crossover will set up Legends of Tomorrow and introduce Hawkman to the DC Television Universe.

Daredevil

Season Two Begins: Sometime in 2016.

Where Last Season Left Off: Daredevil got an official supersuit from the Gladiator and took down the Kingpin, exposing his criminal empire and stopping him from leaving the city in a brutal beatdown. Matt, Foggy and Karen reunited and sparks started to fly between Matt and Karen.

What Might Happen This Season: Bullets. Lots and lots of bullets. The main antagonist for season two is the Punisher, whose brutal methods will force Daredevil to examine his own morals and style of vigilante justice. Elektra, Daredevil's ninja assassin ex-girlfriend, will also appear on the show.

Preacher

Season One Begins: Sometime in 2016. Producer Seth Rogan briefly hinted that the show will come out in May 2016 before backtracking and saying that nothing was official yet.

What Might Happen This Season: From what little AMC has released about the show, Preacher appears to be a pretty straightforward adaptation of the comics, which features the preacher Jesse Custer searching for god with his ex-girlfriend and an Irish vampire.

Forever Season 2: Find Out What Would've Become Of Henry And Jo 

It was no Netflix pick-up, but Forever fans got a small gift from series creator Matt Miller on Thursday when he used Twitter to answer their queries about what would've happened next on the cancelled ABC series. 

Fans will remember that the drama, which followed immortal physician Henry Morgan (played by Ioan Gruffudd) as he worked with the New York City Police Department, ended with the doctor poised to tell Det. Jo Martinez (Alana de la Garza) his long-held secret after she saw a photo and noticed that he hadn't aged in decades. 

On the social media site, Miler acknowledged that he wasn't going to give away too much - "still have dreams about the show living on in some way some place," he tweeted - then proceeded to outline how the action would've continued had the series been granted a second season (and beyond). Below, the highlights:

Would Henry Have Ever Actually Died? "That would have been part of the long term plan but I don't think Henry would ever have achieved death."

Did Henry Have Children Other Than Abe? "Yes and a family, "He later elaborated that these biological kids would have been introduced "In flashbacks of Season 2."

How Would Henry Have Answered Jo's Question About The Photo? "Was going to be complicated then interrupted, then he tries to tell her then---"

Did Henry Inspire Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes? "Yes, Plan was to have a wink-wink that he inspired Holmes."

Who Would Henry Tell First About His Condition? "Lucas would have found out."

Would Henry And Jo Have Made It To Paris? "Yes. That was the plan someday."

Thanks for mentioning this! You know I was a fan of the series smile

Now a certain show creator of a certain cancelled robot show would be well inspired to do the same and give fans some answers.

# 401 Your Welcome! I saw this article and thought of you Chris, I think I remember one or two hints that the show was one of your favorites mate.  smile

Well and truly he could get his finger out and come out of the closet and give us a bit of a closure for the dedicated fans of the much missed greatest series of all-time. 

 By the way awesome photo! From Born to Run.

"Blindspot," "Minority Report" Ratings In

The Fall TV season gets properly underway this week with a bunch of shows returning and new ones premiering across the major networks.

NBC's "Blindspot" opened to strong start with a 3.1/10 share and 10.6 million viewers overall in Live+Same Day ratings, the best numbers for any NBC series since "The Blacklist" two years ago.

Jaimie Alexander ("Thor") and Sullivan Stapleton ("300: Rise of an Empire) star in the high-concept thriller series about a woman (Alexander) covered in tattoos who has been dumped naked in Times Square and has no memory but strong skills in languages, shooting and fighting. An FBI agent (Sullivan) is assigned to her and they soon figure out the tattoos point to a major conspiracy.

"Blindspot" also topped the combined demo scores of veteran timeslot competitors "Castle" and "NCIS: Los Angeles," with both these shows hitting series lows."Castle" (1.2/4, 7.1 million overall) fell 40% from last year's premiere.

CBS' "Scorpion" (2.2/7, 11 million overall) fell 30% in its second season premiere, but was up on its first season back half average of 2.1. Fox's "Gotham" (1.6/5, 4.5 million overall) fell 50% from its launch and charted 15% lower than its first season back half average of 1.9.

Off to a very soft start, Fox's "Minority Report" opened quietly with just a 1.1/3 rating and 3.1 million viewers overall.

Bat-baby! Gotham Co-Stars Ben McKenzie And Morena Baccarin Are Expecting Their First Child

Gotham co-stars Ben McKenzie and Morena Baccarin are having a baby!

A representative for McKenzie confirmed to Digital Spy today (September 24) that the couple are expecting their first child together.

The couple are fresh off making their red carpet debut at promotional events for the Emmy Awards over the weekend.

On Gotham, McKenzie's Gotham City police detective James Gordon is currently romancing Baccarin's Dr Leslie Thompkins.

Baccarin was upped to Gotham's main cast following recurring appearances throughout the Batman prequel series's freshman season.

Previously, the Brazilian actress played the alluring escort Inara Serra in cult hit Firefly and earned an Emmy nomination as Damien Lewis's long-suffering wife in Homeland.

Prior to their work together in Gotham, Baccarin also had a three-episode arc on McKenzie's classic Fox series The OC as socialite Maya Griffin.

Speaking about his on-screen chemistry with Baccarin, McKenzie recently joked: "It's all acting. She's really hard to work with. She's difficult - it's hard to look at her!"

More seriously, he said; "She's a good soul, a good person! We had actually worked together on The OC. Apparently we worked together, but I don't remember this! There was one episode where she came on, and sort of interacted with me. I don't remember!"

Baccarin was previously married to August director Austin Chick, with whom she has a son named Julius.

Congrats! You guys.

Minority Report Looks Like It Will Be The First Cancelled Show Of The Season 

We're only one day into the third week of the fall season and one show has already signed its death certificate. If you've been following weekly ratings wrap-ups (Week 1, Week 2,) then you know Fox's Minority Report is not long for this world. 

But with Monday's ratings released this morning, Minority Report's demise may come even sooner than we thought. Last night's episode thudded to the ground with just 2.28 million viewers and a sad 0.7 rating in the 18-to-49 demo, according to TV By the Numbers, a considerable drop off from its Gotham lead-in, which posted 4.21 million viewers and a 1.5 rating. That's a drop of over 50 percent in the precious young money-spending crowd. Minority Report's three-week ratings look like this: 1.1, 0.9, 0.7. The good news? Minority Report beat The CW's Whose Line Is It Anyway?

Sounds like Minority Report is heading the same way as Almost Human 13-episodes and then bye-bye. At least Almost Human got better ratings like.
