NBC's 'Revolution' seems to be doing well enough on its own, but it certainly didn't hurt that the J.J. Abrams-produced series had a bit of a boost in its pilot episode from director Jon Favreau. Now, NBC hopes Favreau will bring the same lucky charm to Jason Katims' forthcoming 'About a Boy' pilot, putting Favreau once again in the directors' chair. Casting has yet to begin, but what's the buzz 'About a Boy?' New details inside!
For as many big name guest stars as 'The Office' has seen walking through the halls of Dunder-Mifflin over the years, the long-running NBC series has had quite a bit of talent behind the camera as well.

More 'Star Wars: Episode 7' news? Well, it's clear that, from now until summer 2015, we'll have at least one 'Star Wars: Episode 7' rumor for you per day. Not that we're complaining, mind you: has there ever been a movie in development more fun to speculate about? Hard to think of one.
Today we'll be bringing you updates from three of the "potential" directors of Episode 7: J.J. Abrams, Jon Favreau and out-of-left-field contender Colin Trevorrow ('Safety Not Guaranteed'). The initial names are just two of many dream directors of the sequel for fanboys, while the latter is someone who has actually been connected - however tentatively - to the film. Let's get to it!
It was only a few months ago that a 'Jersey Boys' movie based on the hit Broadway musical was in the works through Warner Bros. with Jon Favreau attached to direct.

In fact, it might not even happen at all.
With '30 Rock' and 'The Office' both coming to a close, and 'Saving Hope' getting the boot after just one season, NBC has already been churning out a buttload of new shows.

If that weren't enough, we've got new shows popping up from Jimmy Fallon and Cee Lo Green, but those were just the tip of the iceberg. NBC even more recently bought a couple comedy shows from 'The Office' producers, Jon Favreau and a 'How I Met Your Mother' writer, on top of a new TV adaption coming from the guys behind 'Homeland.' We know it's a lot, so let's break it down.
While we won't see a new movie from Jon Favreau the director for a while yet, Jon Favreau the actor seems busier than ever.
Actor, writer and director Jon Favreau has found his next directorial project: 'Jersey Boys.' Don't worry, it's not about those Jersey boys -- the ones that hang out at a particular Shore. This one is based on the Broadway smash 'Jersey Boys: The Story of Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons.'
We're used to seeing the last minute additions of actors join the cast for random superhero movies, but the character that's being cast for 'Iron Man 3' has some fans scratching their heads. It's not that they don't want to see the character on the big screen, but how will he fit in the grand scheme of the story?
