Although, we'll never actually know because someone over at the AMC period drama actually turned down the chance to star on FOX's musical series!

Who???

Apparently, John Slattery didn't think much of Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard's show when creator Danny Strong — who played Roger Sterling's cousin on Mad Men –approached him about making an appearance.

The title of the article is Pilots 2015: The Year Of Ethnic Casting — About Time Or Too Much Of A Good Thing?

Basically the article posits that after scoring big hits with Empire, Fresh Off The Boat, and How To Get Away With Murder, networks are making a big push to put more ethnicities front and center on TV — but that this initiative is wrong because it's hurting white actors!

Call Kraven, because the hunt is on for the next Spider-Man!

And the next up-and-coming actor to throw his hat in the ring for the reportedly much younger Spidey is Freddie Highmore!

"Professionally, I haven't heard anything about it. I've only heard from, like, [rumors] online."

Awww! We were looking forward to the announcement of the Spectacular Stiles as Peter Parker 3.0.

But we aren't the only ones who'll be disappointed with Dylan's denial — and he knows it! He lamented:

Mark Cuban & Ann Coulter Are Taking Over The U.S. As President And Vice President In Sharknado 3!

Filed under: TV NewsFilm FlickersSharkGIFs

no title

We're not sure what the world's obsession with shark-infested tornados are, but everyone wants to be a part of it!

Tara Reid and Ian Ziering are already on board for the third Sharknado film, but the movie can't be made with just those two!

[ Related: Tara & Ian Are Back For Another Sharknado Film! ]

Although we would totally be on board if Tara was named the President for this one, or if we didn't *SPOILER* die in the movie's second installment!!
