CHARLIZE THERON INSTEAD ANGELINA IN "SNOW WHITE & THE HUNTSMAN"? ERIC MCCORMACK AS A NEUROSCIENTIST IN "PERCEPTION". "ONCE UPON A TIME" NEW SF FANTASY SHOW ON ABC! JOEL SILVER AND "DEMONOLOGIST"

Eric McCormack, whom we still remember from WILL & GRACE,  has been signed by TNT to play the lead role in their new show PERCEPTION.  Coming from the producers who brought us LEGEND OF THE SEEKER, STAR TREK VOYAGER and SMALLVILLE,
this new show will follow an eccentric neuroscientist who uses his unique outlook to help the federal government solve complex cases. With an intimate knowledge of human behavior and a masterful understanding of the mind, this quirky, crime-solving professor pulls lessons from an odd and imaginative view of the world.

Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis, the authors of popular LOST, will develop a new TV show together with ABC. Their ONCE UPON A TIME will center around a female protagonist with a mysterious background in a small, present-day Maine town. The series will be a modern take on fairy tales, which will include elements of sci-fi, mystery and fantasy. Similar to LOST, the new show will also have a huge cast.

Just a few days ago I told you about Angelina Jolie possibly taking the role of the evil stepmom in SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN, but it now seems Charlize Theron is another contender for the villainous role. Unlike Angelina, Charlize has a more relaxed schedule and it's also interesting that if she gets the role she would play alongside Tom Hardy in the role of the huntsman with whom she will also star in the remake MAD MAX: FURY ROAD for which the shooting has been postponed for 2012.

Joel Silver will produce DEMONOLOGIST, an unusual  horror about a family of ghost hunters who think they're taking on another normal job when they realize that the house has been overrun by demons and just plain ghosts.

And don't forget to check out the music HOLLYWOOD SPY is playing for you in the sidebar - DARIN with his breathtaking voice and stunning new video LOVEKILLER, the best newcomers this year HURTS with their larger than life song STAY, and Latin sensation PRINCE ROYCE whose song will make your hips move from the first beat :)

  1. The best thing I've watched with Eric McCormack in it was the TV series Lonesome Dove. He fit the part so well. He was funny on Will and Grace.

  2. Perception sounds interesting. Sounds like a more serious version of Psyche.

    I'm afraid I've never heard of PSYCHE, but the new show does seem interesting.

  4. DEZMOND - Both Perception and Once Upon a Time sound great. Love Eric McCormack and the concept of OUaT seems twisted enough to be right up my alley. =D

  7. Once upon a time sounds interesting. I think Charlize would be better in SW&H

  11. I know who's the perfect actress for the role of Snow White's evil stepmom and she's no other than the cool and talented Nicole Kidman!

    glad you like it

    @Clarissa
    ah, you're not a picky chooser :)

    @Jaccsy
    There definitely is something evilish in Nicole's screen presence :)
