We were excited by the prospect of a 'From Dusk Till Dawn' TV series to arrive on Robert Rodriguez's new Latin-themed network El Rey, though the initial announcement of the horror adaptation's cast brought relatively few familiar names. That changes today, as the supernatural horror drama adapting Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino's 1996 smash has added 'Terminator' and 'True Blood' star Robert Patrick, 'Shameless' vet Madison Davenport, and more!
In 1998, director Robert Rodriguez released the high school horror film 'The Faculty.' Written by 'Scream' scribe Kevin Williamson, the film follows a group of mismatched high school students who must overcome their differences and band together when mysterious alien parasites take over the bodies of their peers and teachers. Fifteen years later, we take a look back at the awesome ensemble cast of the film and see what they're up to now.
'Community' creator Dan Harmon may not have enjoyed his year off from the series in season 4 (read: he despised it), but at it seems at least one positive from the season will return for season 5. Not only will '21 Jump Street' star Brie Larson return as a person of interest to one Abed Nadir, but so too will the cameo-heavy installment feature 'Terminator' and all-around genre vet Robert Patrick, among others.
Sure, we were sad to hear that ABC opted not to renew 'Last Resort,' which maintained relatively meager rating in its initial run despite being recieved as one of the better offerings of the season. But one good show's loss is another of our favorite's gain, as the cancellation frees up series star Robert Patrick to join 'True Blood' full time! The one-time 'Terminator 2' star will return to Bon Temps as Jackson Herveaux, father to Alcide and newly minted series regular, but does that mean the werewolves will have a bigger story?
It's amazing to think that the second episode of 'True Blood' season 5 hasn't even aired yet, and already we're looking toward the end of the season and beyond. Much like last year with actor Scott Foley, 'True Blood' has just picked up a fluid bit of casting for the final episodes of the season that has us wondering if we might be setting up an even bigger year in season 6. So who's the mystery man? Come with us if you want to live!
Pilots can look very different form their initial airings to the time a series debuts in the fall. Not in a liquid metal changing-your-shape kind of way, but more of a customizable machine, with different parts swapped in and out to foster whatever works best. What were we talking about? Oh, right! ABC's 'Last Resort' just can't keep Robert Patrick at bay, even with a vat of molten steel.
