Wanna see what Battlestar Galatica’s Jamie “Apollo” Bamber is going to be doing on the upcoming season premiere of Dollhouse? The episode is apparently titled “Vows” and Bamber looks to be taking that literally. But hey, if it was Eliza Dushku I would be too…
Have look at the full gallery here.
Remember a couple of months back we told you that a live-action Star Wars TV series was in the works? Yeah, well, apparently things are moving as fast (if not quicker) than we predicted: the Star Wars could start shooting as soon as this year.
The series will take place between Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and Episode IV: A New Hope, during the tumultuous early era of the rebellion and the rise of the Galactic Empire. We’ll be seeing Obi Wan Kenobi and Boba Fett but reportedly no Darth Vader or Emperor Palpatine. Shame.
No word on a potential cast, how many episodes will be initially produced or if George Lucas will be at all involved. We’ll keep you updated as we hear more.

Clive Barker’s Hotel
Thankfully it is NOT a vacation destination (to hell!) – rather it’s the new script from Saw writers Patrick Melton and (director of The Collector) Marcus Dunstan that was recently picked up by ABC. Several networks were eyeing the Warner Bros. TV venture, which centers on the terrible happenings at a haunted hotel – from hell!
Clive Barker is attached to produce (naturally). McG’s Wonderland Sound and Vision is also in talks to co-produce – will we see McG directing an episode or two? Anybody’s guess.
Interesting note: Barker, Melton, and Dunstan all worked together on a draft of the Hellraiser reboot that’s currently over at Dimension films.
My world has been an empty place since Tales From The Crypt went off the air. Here’s hoping this show is a worthy successor.

R.I.P. DON HEWITT
Don Hewitt, creator of 60 Minutes, passed away at 86 on Wednesday, August 19, 2009. Hewitt was a legend in TV news who worked at CBS for 55 years where he made his mark (time and again) directing Edward R. Murrow’s See It Now or the history-changing Nixon-Kennedy Presidential debate in 1960. Hewitt was also the executive producer of the CBS Evening News with Walter Cronkite and created his most enduring series, 60 Minutes, in 1968.
Hewitt is another monument to old school American journalism and he will be missed.
That’s all for now. Talk to you again during commercials.
