KB: 360, 11.30.11 – Justified, Ender’s Game, and The Walking Dead
Mark your calendars now. Justified is set to return on January 19th. As you’ve probably heard, Carla Gugino is joining the cast as assistant director of U.S. Marshals who has some sort of history with Raylan. Also joining the cast as new villains are Neal McDonough (Boomtown) and Mykelti Williamson (24). Justified may not be the best show on TV right now but it is my favorite. Teasers and more info here.
The star of Martin Scorsese’s Hugo, Asa Butterfield, has signed to star in the screen version of Orson Scott Card’s Ender’s Game. Also rumored, Harrision Ford.
Speaking of AMC, Michelle Forbes will be back for season 2 of The Killing. Expect her to cry and yell at her husband some more.
JJ Abrams’ new show, Alcatraz, is set to premiere in January on Fox. New promo here. I’ll give it a shot.
Christian Bale says Dark Knight Rises will be his last as Batman.
Gary Oldman might finally get that elusive Oscar nomination (can’t believe he’s never received one) for his starring role in John Le Carre’s Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. It might be the one movie I’m looking forward to the most this holiday season.
