Earlier today saw FOX stealing a bit of British thunder with its own adaptation of ‘Luther’ but it seems FX intends to mine far deeper in bringing the A-list Tom Hardy to the small screen. The cable network has officially picked up the rights to air Hardy’s forthcoming period drama collaboration with Ridley Scott and ‘Locke’’s Steven Knight, diamond adventurer drama ‘Taboo.’

'Tonight Show' host Jimmy Fallon is, perhaps, not quite ready to take to the skies in service to the mythos and magic of a Peter Pan tale, but when star Allison Williams asks him to do it, he kind of can't say no. After all, Williams is about to go high-flying on live television for an all-new 'Peter Pan,' the least Fallon can do is try it for a bit within the safety of his own studio.

Well, if FOX’s American remake of ‘Broadchurch’ didn’t send mobs of flaming pitchforks to the ‘Gracepoint’ set, we suppose this was bound to happen. Idris Elba’s revered detective drama ‘Luther’ looks to get its own FOX remake as well, with series creator Neil Cross on board to write and Elba in line to produce.

Jimmy Fallon’s supposedly good time games are becoming increasingly more complicated, threading in generally fun ideas (“let’s tell a story together!”) with weird constraints (“put you can only use three words!”) with one final, seemingly impossible demand (“and then you have to make me say this mystery word!”). Fortunately for the ‘Tonight Show’ host, he picked a game (tee hee) partner for his first crack at “Three-Word Stories.”

14 Moments That Made Us Unintentionally LOL During This Week’s ‘Gotham’ Episode, “Harvey Dent”

Monday night’s episode of ‘Gotham,’ ‘Harvey Dent,’ as advertised, introduced us to a new assistant DA named Harvey Dent. At this point, at least Harvey Dent isn’t a little kid. ‘Gotham’ is slowly improving, but it’s still caught in that awkward space between being a serious drama and a campy farce. I truly think the reason I laugh so much while watching ‘Gotham’ is that it will be in the middle of taking itself so seriously, then something stupid will happen. Anyway, here are the 14 times that I laughed out loud during last night’s episode of ‘Gotham.’

A great many eons ago, revered Alan Moore-Eddie Campbell graphic novel ‘From Hell’ slashed into theaters with a mediocre Johnny Depp-led take on the Jack the Ripper tale. And while Moore famously criticized the adaptation to hell and back, 20th Century Fox may yet try again to adapt ‘From Hell’ as an FX event miniseries in the future.
