Christina Hendricks is in negotiations to join the cast of a new comedy. Fist Fight stars Ice Cube and Charlie Day, and includes in its cast Tracy Morgan, Jillian Bell, and Breaking Bad’s Dean Norris.

Speaking of Dean Norris (Hank): Steven Michael Quezada, who played Gomey on Breaking Bad, is running for the Bernalillo County, New Mexico, Commission, and his former Breaking Bad DEA partner Dean Norris is campaigning for him.

Season 5 of Homeland premieres October 4! Here’s an early review.

Michael Sheen of Masters of Sex will appear in a new movie with Jennifer Lawrence, Passengers.

In the very definition of “light news week,” here’s Jon Hamm playing baseball in LA. Or should I say, here’s Emmy-winner Jon Hamm.

January Jones talks about sharks, claustrophobia, and her four-year old, Xander.

In the kind of obsessive record-keeping that Basket of Kisses adores, Pajiba runs down every Emmy that Mad Men didn’t win.

Kit Williamson, last seen on Mad Men as Ed, making long distance phone calls from the ghost of SCDP’s offices, talks about his new role on Eastsiders.

Here’s an interview with Lennie James (Morgan) of The Walking Dead, with teasers for Season 6 (starting this weekend!).

There’s another new Walking Dead series–a web series. Fear the Walking Dead: Flight 462 will have a 16-episode run telling the story of an airline flight during the zombie outbreak. It will tie-in with Fear the Walking Dead, and air during commercials of the Walking Dead this season.

Ratings for Fear the Walking Dead have leveled off.

The Critics Choice Awards have changed their rules. Gold Derby explains why Mad Men and other favorites are now ineligible.

We don’t link to many reviews in “News”, but Basketcases may appreciate the great Alan Sepinwall exploring how he lost interest in Masters of Sex.

  1. EastSiders…. when I saw EastEnders, I thought it was a British show.
