With 'The Newsroom' locked down for a second season after only 2 episodes airing, it's certainly time to start thinking about expanded roles for the Aaron Sorkin drama's next year. We've just learned that 'The Expendables' and 'The Expendables 2' star Terry Crews will join the show's first season later on, but for how long? And is there a chance of making it into the second season?
We hope you like sexy vampires and hard-hitting journalism, because HBO is about to give you another helping! Though they certainly make for strange bedfellows on Sunday nights, The pay-cabler network has officially given renewal orders for a sixth season of 'True Blood,' and a second season of Aaron Sorkin's hotly-debated newsroom drama, titled eloquently enough 'The Newsroom.' So when might we see new helpings?
Between 'True Blood's upcoming fifth season, and the current run of 'Game of Thrones,' there hasn't been a whole lot of promotion in the way of Aaron Sorkin's return to TV in the Jeff Daniels-starring 'The Newsroom.' No longer! With a June 24 premiere mere weeks away, HBO has given us our third official trailer, but is it more 'West Wing' or 'Studio 60?'
Sure, 'Game of Thrones' is great and all (I mean, did you see last night's "The Ghost of Harrenhal?"), but with 'Boardwalk Empire' still on hiatus, it may feel like we've been a little lacking for down-to-Earth HBO drama. So before we settle in this summer, how about a fresh look at Aaron Sorkin's upcoming news drama 'The Newsroom?'
Most fans know that Oscar-winning writer Aaron Sorkin has a habit of bringing in alumni from his previous work as good luck charms for his next, be it Martin Sheen, Josh Malina or Bradley Whitford, but when HBO debuts Sorkin's latest drama with 'The Newsroom,' which actor from his past will receive the honor?
Ah, the internet. While it can end up driving us crazy looking for tidbits and information on returning seasons of our favorite TV shows, its the freshmen that are usually willing to either share their first episodes early, or at least end up less cavalier about their scripts. So who's the latest leak?
It's summer, and you know that that means on HBO! The cable network has already dusted off their "Waiting Sucks" tagline for the latest season of 'True Blood,' and Aaron Sorkin fans are eager to get their first look at new drama 'The Newsroom.' But precisely what days will be gluing us to our seats?
HBO just released the trailer for the upcoming Aaron Sorkin series, 'The Newsroom' starring Jeff Daniels as a cable news anchor whose career spirals out of control when he - you guessed it - "spanks a co-ed."
