It’s been rumored for some time and now it’s official. Eddie Redmayne is part of the first Harry Potter spinoff.

The 33-year-old Oscar winner will play the lead role, Newt Scamander, in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. He’s the Wizarding World’s preeminent magizoologist, spending his time traveling the magical globe, documenting its creatures, and publishing a Hogwarts history textbook.

“Eddie Redmayne has emerged as one of today’s most extraordinarily talented and acclaimed actors,” Warner Bros. Pictures’ President of Creative Development and Worldwide Production Greg Silverman said in a statement. “We are thrilled to welcome him into J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World, where we know he will deliver a remarkable performance as Newt Scamander, the central character in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.”

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is scheduled for a November 18, 2016 release in 3D and IMAX. JK Rowling wrote the film’s screenplay. It’s her first. David Yates who directed the last four Potter instalments, returns behind the camera. Check out the full press release below.

Another original cast member has been reborn.

Sendil Ramamurthy who played Dr Mohinder Suresh is the latest addition to NBC’s event miniseries, Heroes Reborn. He joins previously announced returning OGs Masi Oka (Hiro Nakamura), Jack Coleman (Noah Bennet), and Jimmy Jean-Louis (The Haitian).

Ramamurthy’s character was quite integral to the original series. He was a geneticist who had an ability to identify the potential for latent “abilities” to surface. He pretty much assembled the titular “heroes.”

Since Heroes, Sundil has been seen in Beauty and the Beast and Covert Affairs. Are you glad another original cast member is making a brief appearance? Weigh in below.


FOX originally intended to broadcast its live Grease production for sometime in 2015. The musical was pushed to Sunday, Jan. 31, 2016 when the network couldn’t find the right person to play Danny Zuko. Love him or not these days, but John Travolta slayed it back then. Definitely a hard act to follow.

I’m pretty sure FOX isn’t any closer to finding its leading man, but at least the rest of the cast is starting to take shape. Julianne Hough and Vanessa Hudgens were the first to snag roles in the highly-anticipated project- Sandy and Rizzo respectively. Another Pink Lady has joined the cast. Find out who below.

Another hero has been reborn. NBC’s revival Heroes Reborn has snagged another OG cast member from the original series.

Greg Grunberg is set to reprise his telepathic role of Officer Matt Parkman for a guest arc when the sci-fi series returns. The 48-year-old actor reunites with Masi Oka (Hiro Nakamura), Jack Coleman (Noah Bennet), and Jimmy Jean-Louis (The Haitian) for the reboot. They’ll be joined by newbies Zachary Levi (Chuck), Ryan Guzman (Pretty Little Liars) and Robbie Kay (Once Upon a Time).

Like most people, I enjoyed the first season of Heroes. Like most shows though, it lost its way during its sophomore season. In it’s defence, the quality was partially due to the writers strike. Hopefully, it can recapture the magic of its first year.

Are you excited for Grunberg’s return? Who else are you hoping comes back? Weigh in below.


This casting is absolutely brillballs. Reese Witherspoon has been tapped to play everyone’s favorite fairy in a new live-action film based on the classic Peter Pan character, Tinkerbell.

Hollywood Reporter reveals the 39-year-old actress will not only play the titular character in Tink, but she’ll produce it as well. Bruna Papandrea, her partner at their production banner, Pacific Standard, will also co-produce

Survivor: Second Chance Cast Revealed

In: Donovan, TV Shows

After a public vote that lasted two weeks, the cast of Survivor’s 31st season was revealed at the end of Survivor: Worlds Apart Reunion. For the most part, the results weren’t too surprising. Overall, it’s a good mix of original castaways and recent players.

Survivor Seasons 22 through 24 did remarkably well, with everyone eligible making the cut, while players from S28 and S29 were shut out. Probably the biggest shocker was that Carolyn Rivera from the current season didn’t generate enough votes. I’m also curious to know which lucky guy made the cut after Mike Holloway won Survivor: Worlds Apart, thereby making him ineligible. Jeff Probst revealed Holloway ranked in the Top 10. Hopefully, Probst reveals that tidbit in the future.

Check out the castaways being shipped off to Cambodia to vie for the Survivor: Second Chance title. Be sure to weigh in on which ones you’re rooting for? Also share your thoughts on who you’re surprised made the cut and who didn’t.
