Walking Dead fans have likely heard some of the development struggles it took getting AMC’s horror powerhouse off the ground, including an NBC that didn’t want zombies, but it seems the series very nearly looked quite different. Original showrunner Frank Darabont actually wanted ex-Punisher Thomas Jane for the role of Rick Grimes, before Andrew Lincoln came along.
A sleepwalking Bruce Willis. A premise torn straight out of ‘Westworld.’ A robot borrowed from the hard-drive containing assets from ‘I, Robot.’ A blank-faced blonde dodging bullets. Thomas Jane looking like he just wants his kids back. Yes siree, the ‘Vice’ trailer has it all!
Long before Joss Whedon made the hit TV show 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer,' he wrote the film of the same name -- released in 1992, 'Buffy' follows Kristy Swanson as the titular heroine, a cheerleader who discovers that it is her destiny to hunt and kill vampires. Co-starring Luke Perry and Donald Sutherland, the film was a moderate success, though it's often forgotten in the shadow of Whedon's wildly popular TV show starring Sarah Michelle Gellar. Twenty-two years later, we take a look back at the cast of this '90s classic and see what they're up to now.
Thomas Jane premiered a new 'Punisher' short film, in which he reprises the role of Frank Castle alongside co-star Ron Perlman. The short, titled 'Dirty Laundry,' played at Comic Con 2012 over the weekend. The catch? Marvel doesn't know about it (yet).
It was a curious oddity that we hadn't heard any news about TNT's upcoming mobster drama pilot 'L.A. Noir' amidst the flurry of renewals and pickups for the 2012 upfront season, what with all the incredible star power it boasts. Created by former 'The Walking Dead' show-runner Frank Darabont and starring the same series' Jon Bernthal, guess who's about to get 'Hung' up on 'L.A. Noir?'
