NBC originally gave the event series based on L. Frank Baum’s books a 10-episode straight-to-series commitment last year, but then scrapped the project due to ‘creative differences.’ NBC resurrected Emerald City just a couple months ago.

The peacock network’s on-again, off-again The Wizard of Oz-themed drama has found its leading lady. Find out who’s playing Dorothy in the re-imagining of the classic.

Emerald City Logline

“In the blink of a tornado’s eye, 20-year-old Dorothy Gale and her K9 police dog are transported to another world, one far removed from our own — a mystical land of competing kingdoms, lethal warriors, dark magic and a bloody battle for supremacy. This is the fabled Land of Oz in a way you’ve never seen before, where wicked witches don’t stay dead for long and a young girl becomes a headstrong warrior who holds the fate of kingdoms in her hands.”

Fans of Grey’s Anatomy are still reeling from the shocking death of Derek “Dr. McDreamy” Shepherd. While no one can truly replace him in their eyes, it appears producers have found themselves a Patrick Dempsey doppelgänger.

Showrunner Shonda Rhimes has chosen Martin Henderson as Seattle Grace’s newest doctor. This isn’t the first time the 40-year-old actor has starred in a Shondaland series. He appeared in the short-lived ABC drama, Off the Map.

Henderson’s other notable credits include feature films The Ring, Smokin’ Aces and the upcoming Everest co-starring Jake Gyllenhaal. He also played the Ryan Phillippe role in the Aussie Secret and Lies.

Do you think Martin is as dreamy as Patrick? Is there a resemblance? Will fans warm up to another man bedding Ellen Pompeo? Weigh in below.

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.

sendil-ramamurthy-heroes-reborn

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.

grease-fox-cast

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.
