Hollywood seems to have entirely dried up the well on fresh ideas, so much so that the 1999 scifi classic Galaxy Quest is being adapted into a TV series.  There are no details about the cast or plot yet, but the film version's writer, director, and producer are all on board for the series, so there's hope!  But if they can't get Alan Rickman to reprise his role? Why bother?

Actors Ewan McGregor and Sir Ian McKellen will make a surely lovable pair as Lumiere and Cogsworth, the candle and the clock, in Beauty and the Beast.  We know McGregor can sing from his time in Moulin Rouge, but I can't wait to see how he tackles "Be Our Guest"!

Coming soon (not really) to BBC near you!

Daniel Radcliffe is set to play Sam Houser, the co-creator and current president of Rockstar Games. Houser is credited with both the creation of GTA and upping the ante as far as video game violence was concerned.

This, as you know from the early 2000s, drew the ire of Florida attorney Jack Thompson who was known for suing a variety of media outlets for racy and violent content.

As of now the part of Jack Thompson has not been cast. I for one am hoping Idris Elba is up for the role, despite looking nothing like Jack Thompson.



See, I think it could work.
