Fans of FOX's cult Friday night sci-fi series 'Fringe' have long counted themselves lucky that the show made it through a full fourth season, let alone that it was granted an additional 13 episodes for a fifth season to close the show.  Now, there's a bit of troublesome news to report behind the scenes for the upcoming season 5, but one that J.J. Abrams assures won't impact the show.  Either way, there's going to be a shift in the writing talent for 'Fringe's final season, so how will it affect the story?

He is The Gorn! And, if the news out of E3 is any indication, he may be in the upcoming 'Star Trek' sequel.

The most surprising thing about Paramount acquiring the rights to Jonathan Tropper's novel 'One Last Thing Before I Go' is not the price tag (a million bucks is pretty normal for a Hollywood bidding war) nor the fact that the book won't even be on shelves until August (countless books have been optioned prior to release). It's the fact that JJ Abrams, known to most audiences for dabbling in science fiction and action, will be producing this "...moving, funny look at one broken family's attempt to reconnect -- without destroying each other in the process."
