Goood Morning! Hope you are having a pleasant one! Man, what a week for breaking Wilmywood news!! Yesterday afternoon, we got word that FX is bringing us the pilot “How and Why.” The production will be set up at EUE/Screen Gems Studios by this Spring. Look for Michael Cera and John Hawkes around town in the next few months! A lot of Wilmywood folks met John Hawkes when he was on Eastbound & Down last year and are VERY excited to have him back!
They have been signed to star in this comedy pilot which is coming from Charlie Kaufman. The pilot will focus on Goodman Hesselman (John Hawkes) who is the host of a children’s science show called “How and Why.” But he is one of those book smart kinda guys with no people skills what so ever! He is forced to start over, move to a small town, doing a completely different TV show and working for a much younger boss (Michael Cera). As Deadline puts it, “things get awry when Hesselman encounters elements of the supernatural world during this new excursion.” Yep, sounds like the autobiography of every news anchor I know in Wilmywood. Perfect fit FX!
Meanwhile, FX also announced yesterday our North Carolina boy Zach Galifinakis is also going to star in a new FX comedy series co-written by Louis CK. Congrats Zach!
Did you know that our beloved Iron Man, Robert Downey, Jr. can sing? He was on stage at a Sting concert and he sung the classic, “Driven To Tears” Listen to THIS!! Yep, that is RDJ singing! Wow! You go boy!
Now on with a little Sleepy Hollow fun. The ratings stayed flat, no adjustments with a 2.2 /6 among A18-49 w/ 6.4 million viewers. When they factor in the DVR numbers, it will sky rocket per usual. Here’s what’s in store for us this Monday night!
Oh yeah! Can’t wait! Now, if you missed my interview with Tom Mison yesterday: CHECK IT OUT NOW!
SPOILER ALERT: During those short 4 minutes, Tom did give us some intel about Nick Gonzalez‘s character, Detective Luke Morales. He will be back for season two.
