The other day we were exhaustively relieved to learn that FX's Guillermo del Toro vampire pilot 'The Strain' had officially been picked up to series, following a long development process. However, scheduling conflicts forced out del Toro regular and 'Doctor Who' star John Hurt, which is why 'Game of Thrones' baddie David Bradley has now joined the cast!

Finally! We've been hearing for months about the incredible casting choices for FX's adaptation of Guillermo del Toro's iconic vampire trilogy 'The Strain,' though the network had yet to issue an official series order. Now, the day has at long last come, for vampire horror-drama 'The Strain' will see the light in 2014 with a full season!
Regardless of the mixed reception Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' has come to endure, there remains the exciting prospect of Marvel's TV future, especially with possibly four new series on the way. Getting 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' off the ground was no easy feat, however, as Marvel TV boss Jeph Loeb recently opened up about Guillermo del Toro's failed 'Hulk' series, and the big names in the running for future Marvel TV.
By now, you may have already seen Guillermo del Toro's epic, guest-directed opening for the next Halloween-themed episode of 'The Simpsons.' But have you really seen it?

But are you ready for the whole enchilada? From Hellboy to Harryhausen, see what the 'Pacific Rim' creator unearthed for what might be the most impressive 'Simpsons' gag yet!
Though we got to see the sequence in full at Comic-Con 2013, Guillermo del Toro's contribution to 'The Simpsons'' upcoming Halloween special, "Treehouse of Horror XXIV," might make the episode the scariest yet. The visual horror master dug through the vaults to present an extended opening sequence chock full of classic monsters and those of his own design, so who made the cut?
It's nigh impossible to believe at this point that we're still talking about Guillermo del Toro's forthcoming FX-adapted pilot 'The Strain' without an official series order, though it seems the vampire drama has continued casting for recurring parts all the same. '24' and recent 'Revolution' star Leslie Hope is the latest to catch 'The Strain,' but whom will she play if the FX series finally gets off the ground?
