Filed under: TV NewsMad Men

no title

Going from a critical darling like Mad Men to a ratings juggernaut like Empire would probably be the best opportunity there is for an actor.

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.

Hunger Games News! Emmy Winner Danny Strong To Write Mockingjay Films! !

danny-strong-hunger-games-film-mockingjay-writer.jpg

Ahhhh!! The once suicidal Jonathan from Buffy The Vampire Slayer, AKA Danny Strong is all grown up…

And he's been chosen as tribute to pen the screenplay for the last two films in the Hunger Games series!

The Emmy award winning writer/executive producer of HBO's Game Change now has the daunting task of splitting Mockingjay, the final book in the HG trilogy, into two parts.

As we all know, Hollywood likes to squeeze every last cent out of their book-to-film franchises, (Twilight, Harry Potter), so luckily for fans, we get two servings of Mockingjay pie!

As of now, the last two films are set to hit theaters Nov. 21, 2014 and Nov. 20, 2015, respectively.

We are SO excited by this news!! We've no doubt Danny is the perfect mix of mega-talent and nerd to pull a major fantasy/sci-fi franchise flick like this off!!

BTVS super geeks out there, aren't you feeling the tingles! We're so proud of him!!!

Julianne Moore To Play Sarah Palin In HBO Film

Moore Palin casting

Julianne Moore has signed on to play Sarah Palin in HBO Films' upcoming adaptation of the best selling book Game Change by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin.

We can't complain, considering the four-time Academy Award nominee is phenomenal in every thing she does, but we do have one question on our mind…

Why not Tina Fey?!

Okay, okay, we're sure she is a busy with 30 Rock, but c'mon…she is spot on.

Jay Roach will direct the film from a script written by Danny Strong, who previously collaborated together on the Emmy winning political HBO film Recount.

Sounds like this film has some big guns behind it! We can't wait to hear the rest of the casting announcements!

Do U think Julianne Moore is a good choice to play the former Alaskan Governor?
