'24' fans still eagerly await news of the first castings from 2014 revival '24: Live Another Day,' but for now, we can take comfort in the fact that one of its fan-favorite fallen characters is returning to TV. Louis Lombardi has joined the ranks of TNT's forthcoming period noir drama 'Lost Angels' (formerly ‘L.A. Noir‘) in an important recurring role, though the series has yet to set an official premiere date.

Ever since Frank Darabont made his controversial exit from 'The Walking Dead,' we've been intrigued to see what TV projects the director would tackle next. We've long heard about Darabont's TNT follow-up, the ambitious period gangster drama 'L.A. Noir' featuring a host of stars alongside 'Walking Dead' alum Jon Bernthal and Jeffrey DeMunn, but we were surprised to learn after the pick-up the series might change its title. Well, it seems they've settled on 'Lost Angels' as the new moniker, but find out more about the controversy inside!

The last we heard on the 'Godzilla' reboot front was that Legendary Pictures ran into some legal drama after booting out their old producers. While that's being worked out, Frank Darabont is busy at work revamping the script one final time for the film's 2014 release, and he's so graciously revealed a few tidbits about what we can look forward to.

Finally!  After months of radio silence and plenty of speculation, it seems former 'Walking Dead' show-runner Frank Darabont's new TNT drama is a go.  Though the network apparently refers to the series as untitled, 'L.A.

Ordinarily, we'd be wary of the notion that a high-profile pilot continues adding notable and recognizable genre actors to its ranks, but since great art often comes out of the ashes of failure, Frank Darabont's 'L.A. Noir' is on track to be one of the more anticipated debuts of the year. And now the series has added another talent actor to its ranks.

Boy, that Simon Pegg has his hands in a lot of different cookie jars these days.  One day he's throwing  his voice to one of the most dangerous bounty hunters in the galaxy for 'Star Wars: The Clone Wars,' the next it's back to beaming up for 'Star Trek 2,' so where might the UK funnyman pop up next? Back in time?  Well, that's one frontier Pegg has never boldly gone before.

'The Walking Dead's Jon Bernthal Officially Joins 'L.A. Noir,' Because, Well...

Well, there's no point in hiding it now.  Fans of 'The Walking Dead' on AMC all know that Shane got himself all corpsified and deadzo after trying to murder his best friend, so it's safe to say that Jon Bernthal is free to pursue other projects.
And pursue them he has!

Boy, that Frank Darabont just has to have every great actor on TV right now for his upcoming TNT crime-drama pilot 'L.A. Noir', doesn't he?  Well, as long as he's going to, could he at least wait until after their existing TV characters have been conclusively killed off?  Sheesh.
