    I caught the first episode.

    I'm not in love with the idea or where it feels the story is going, but the production values are surprisingly high and the acting is solid. Some people, maybe quite a few, are going to really enjoy this.

    Sounds like good news overall.

    By the idea do you mean Shakespeare as a young man?

    I don't want to say anything at all about the plot, but there's a threat element I don't really like. Also, I'm not a fan of completely fictionalized accounts of historical figures... Even when we know almost nothing about the figure, who may never have even existed as a single entity.

    All of that aside I'm definitely going to keep watching.

    Nelsan Ellis, Who Played Lafayette in TRUE BLOOD, Dies at 39

    [​IMG]

    Nelsan Ellis, the actor who starred in HBO's True Blood as Lafayette Reynolds, has died, his manager Emily Gerson Saines, told The Hollywood Reporter. He was 39.

    "Nelsan has passed away after complications with heart failure," Saines said. "He was a great talent, and his words and presence will be forever missed."

    On True Blood, Lafayette was a short order cook at Merlotte's. In the books, he was killed off, but because Ellis made him such an enjoyable character, he survived in the series.

    "We were extremely saddened to hear of the passing of Nelsan Ellis," HBO said in a statement. "Nelsan was a long-time member of the HBO family whose groundbreaking portrayal of Lafayette will be remembered fondly within the overall legacy of True Blood. Nelsan will be dearly missed by his fans and all of us at HBO."

    True Blood creator, Alan Ball said: "Nelsan was a singular talent whose creativity never ceased to amaze me. Working with him was a privilege."

    Other cast members took to social media to express their heartbreak.

    "I don't know if I've ever seen the level of humility and kindness that came with the Magnificent Talent that Nelsan Ellis had. Miss u friend," said Sam Trammell.

    "Crushed today by the loss of my friend and castmate Nelsan Ellis. He was a wonderful person, a pioneer, and a one of a kind artist. RIP," said Joe Manganiello.

    "One of the sweetest most talented men I've ever met. A terrible loss for all of us. Rest In Peace Nelsan. You will be missed. I don't know how else to put words to this terribly sad news," said Kristin Bauer.

    "It was an utter privilege to work with the phenomenally talented and deeply kind soul .@OfficialNelsan I'm devastated by his untimely death," said Anna Paquin.

    Ellis appeared in numerous film and TV shows, inclduing The Soloist, The Butler, Get On Up and Elementary.

    OK, not who I was expecting at all... but she'll probably wear the hell out of that costume.

    Three months after being picked up straight to series, Freeform and Marvel have cast the New Warriors

    Following an extensive casting search This Is Us' Milana Vayntrub has landed the breakout role of Squirrel Girl in New Warriors. Baby Daddy grad Derek Theler will stay in business with Freeform after landing the male lead of Mister Immortal in Marvel's first live-action scripted comedy.

    The duo lead the ensemble cast in the 10-episode series about six young people learning to cope with their abilities in a world where bad guys can be as terrifying as bad dates. Joining Vayntrub (This Is Us) are Jeremy Tardy as Night Thrasher; Calum Worthy as Speedball; Matthew Moy as Microbe and Kate Comer as Debrii. (Full character descriptions are below.)
    What say you @Dragonlordxxxxx ? For starters, I think that @GearSolidMetal and @pcptornado are going to be able to put all those pictures from their Vs threads to good use... for research purposes of course.

    A live-action TV series based on Gerard Way's graphic novel, The Umbrella Academy, is coming to Netflix.

    The streaming giant announced it has ordered a ten-episode season of The Umbrella Academy that will debut in 2018. Here's a synopsis of the upcoming series, courtesy of Netflix:

    "The Umbrella Academy is a live action series that follows the estranged members of a dysfunctional family of superheroes (The Umbrella Academy) -- The Monocle, Spaceboy, The Kraken, The Rumor, The Séance, Number Five, The Horror, and The White Violin -- as they work together to solve their father’s mysterious death while coming apart at the seams due to their divergent personalities and abilities."

    "I am thrilled that The Umbrella Academy has found a home at Netflix," said My Chemical Romance frontman Way, who created the series in 2007. "I couldn’t think of a better place for the vision Gabriel Bá and myself had when creating the comic, and cannot wait for people to experience that world as a live action show."

    Netflix VP of Original Content Cindy Holland added: "What drew us to The Umbrella Academy is that it’s wholly unique, visual and stylized. These aren’t the usual superheroes, and this series will embrace the singular tone of the graphic novels -- dark yet humorous, supernatural yet grounded in reality. We’re excited to see this world and introduce these unforgettable heroes to Netflix members around the globe."

    Fargo producer Steve Blackman will serve as showrunner and executive producer. The pilot was written by Jeremy Slater, who co-wrote Netflix's upcoming live-action Death Note movie.

    Watched the first episode of Will and I liked it. William is a very likable, underdog main character, easy to root for. Love the cast. I'm a fan of Jamie Campbell Bower and I think this is a great role for him. I like the look of it, it's grimy yet colorful. Alice looks so pure and clean (and pretty) in comparison to the background or the other women. Lol they even have a pseudo-rap battle.
