If ever you wondered which alien race might have the largest presence in CBS’ Star Trek: Discovery, the latest round of casting isn’t exactly subtle. Three new stars have joined the All-Access cast, and all three of them playing Klingon roles.
We’re just a few weeks away from seeing Supergirl and The Flash team up in live-action, but from the sounds of it the “Worlds Finest” have more in common than just superpowers. Cast and crew tease Barry and Kara’s big teamup, including a surprising spark, a legendary race, and an “infectious and exciting and upbeat and happy” tale to remember.
CBS’ adaptation of Antoine Fuqua’s Training Day made clear early on that it would reverse the racial dynamic between its two leads, but there is an obscure bingo winner out there who had Bill Paxton replacing Denzel Washington. That’s right, the guy from Big Love is your new corrupt cop, and King Kong … well, probably has a thing or two on him.
CBS’ Supergirl has gone pretty all-in when it comes to depicting outlandish DC characters, and the next to pop up on the comic drama is downright scary. Following a Flash-y cameo, the first full look at Italia Ricci as DC big bad Silver Banshee has arrived, howling makeup and all.
Crowded TV landscape as it is, no one was terribly surprised to hear Training Day had been added to the list of TV’s many movie properties, albeit with the benefit of director Antoine Fuqua aboard. Now, we’ve learned Ethan Hawke may have in mind to reprise his role from the 2001 film as well, though the level of involvement may change in development.
After a season’s worth of Supergirl awkwardly cutting around any actual Superman appearances on the small screen, Kal-El will finally come forth in this coming Monday’s Alan Moore-inspired “For the Girl Who Has Everything.” Well, we’ll meet him as a child. On Krypton. In a dream. Anyway, here’s some photos!
A ways back, we’d heard that the ever-clever MacGyver had reinvented himself with a new CBS series under Furious 7 helmer James Wan, returning to that faithful well of a young origin story. That dream is today reality for he Eye, as CBS grants an official pilot order to a new generation of MacGyver, with sexy results.
Oh you, reign of TV reboots, long may you ride. Following the likes of Limitless and Rush Hour, CBS has officially elected to move forward with a new take on Antoine Fuqua’s iconic Training Day, shaking up the casting and confirming Fuqua himself to helm the pilot.
