Kevin Spacey who? House of Cards’ final season may be all about Robin Wright’s Claire Underwood, but hers won’t be the only familiar face. Both Diane Lane and Greg Kinnear have joined the eight-episode sixth season in key roles, amid other returning favorites.
Diane Lane was barely in Batman v. Superman, but nonetheless provided some much needed resolution to the heroes’ initial smackdown. The fight ends as soon as Bats and Supes both learn that their mothers had the same name: Martha. It’s probably more meaningful than that, as they realize that they are both men who had mothers and look into each other’s eyes and see their own humanity (metaphorical, in one case) staring back at them, etc., etc., but it’s still a very silly moment.

Even before the early reviews began rolling in, the trailers solidified Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman as the most exciting attraction in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Audiences agreed, as Wonder Woman — whose name isn’t even in the title of the film — ranked highest in a recent poll that asked fans which character they were most eager to see in Zack Snyder’s superhero epic.

With Nixon long gone and his own health starting to fail him, a former FBI spook named Mark Felt ‘fessed up to cooperating under the Deep Throat moniker.
Here’s a new fictional couple for all of us to joyously ‘ship: Kyle MacLachlan and Diane Lane have just joined the voice cast of Disney and Pixar’s ‘Inside Out.’ The pair will voice the parents of 11 year-old Riley in the upcoming animated film, making us all wish that Kyle MacLachlan and Diane Lane were our parents in real life. Not only that, but as an added bonus, the film will apparently venture inside the minds of Riley’s parents, giving us a glimpse at their emotional journey as they cope with their daughter’s own growing pains.
Among the multiple ongoing developments from the Television Critics Association press tour, NBC has reaffirmed their commitment to doing more limited series, announcing several new projects. Not only will the network look to reboot horror classic 'Rosemary's Baby,' but also a new adaptation of Stephen King's 'The Tommyknockers,' a Hilary Clinton miniseries starring Diane Lane, and a 'Plymouth' sto
