Production is gearing up on The Wolverine 2, which is assembling a respectable supporting cast for Hugh Jackman’s final outing as the iconic superhero. In addition to the recent casting of Narcos’ Boyd Holbrook, the sequel has added two more stars to the lineup, with Richard E. Grant and Stephen Merchant joining Jackman’s farewell to the the famous mutant.
Comedy Central's adaptation of classic FunnyorDie sketch "Drunk History" exceeded our wildest expectation across its first season, bringing in countless celebrities both to inebriatedly narrate and star in their best recollections of world events. Now that season 2 has been set for a summer 2014 debut, Comedy Central has revealed the full roster of guest stars, including some famous faces from 'The Walking Dead,' 'Friday Night Lights,' 'Game of Thrones' and many, many more.
Like 'Homeland' before it, HBO seems to have gotten wise to the fact that this past Sunday may have proven an altogether difficult spot to launch new programs, even after AMC's airing of the 'Breaking Bad' series finale, "Felina." To wit, the premium cable network has made available Kenny Powers' final(-ish) 'Eastbound & Down' season premiere, along with 'Office' co-creator Stephen Merchant's new dating comedy 'Hello Ladies'!
No, not that 'The Office,' but close! Instead, the original 'The Office' co-creator Stephen Merchant is getting into business with HBO once more, working on a series order for 'Hello Ladies,' to be written, directed and headlined by Merchant himself. Picked up for a full eight episodes, the comedy also boasts former 'The Office' writers Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky, but what story does the new series tell? Might it have any connectivity with Merchant's other HBO work?
