ryan-phillippeAlso, yesterday, we found out Wilmywood might get their hottie back!  Ryan Phillippe is reportedly in final negotiations to star in ABC’s Secrets & Lies.  If you remember he was here in the 90′s for I Know What You Did Last Summer.   Let’s hope the negotiations go well, because he would be the leading man in this series.  A premiere date has been set for October.  More casting choices will be coming out soon, so stay posted.  READ STORY

Max-SteelVariety’s Dave McNary wrote an article yesterday morning on the unveiling of Max Steel which will happen tomorrow in Europe.  He opens with:

 “The Berlin festival may not unspool on a sunny beach, but the European Film Market, which runs alongside the fest, is becoming much more like Cannes and the American Film Market — at least when it comes to serving as a launching pad for major movies.” 

So get ready for Max Steel which will make an appearance at the EFM (European Film Market) and Mattel and Dolphin Films will unveil more details about the live-action adaptation.  So, that means we can look forward to more details this week!

It’s official, our North Carolina American Idol runner-up who has  six albums under his belt, Clay Aiken, announced this morning that he will indeed run for the Democratic nomination in the 2nd Congressional District.  You know what question we want answered!  Here’s his pitch.
