    Some very cool casting news regarding who is to play Walter Bishops ex lab partner, now billionaire founder of Massive Dynamics: http://ausiellofiles.ew.com/2009/04/exclusive-fring.html

    X-Men Origins: Wolverine

    Note that this is NOT an April Fools Day joke: In what may be the biggest pre-release movie leak of all time, a high quality work print rip of Fox Studios' X-Men Origins: Wolverine has hit the internet a month before the movie is scheduled for cinema release. While the Work Print contains some unfinished effects work (Some wire work is yet to be removed, some special effects need polishing), and is rumoured to not contain 10 minutes of footage that was shot during recent re-shoots, it still represents a huge slap in the face to Fox, and could cost them 10's of millions of dollars. The movie release date may be pushed forward to minimise the damage - especially if the fan boy reaction of those that have seen it is negative. Check out the coverage: http://www.aintitcool.com/node/40609 http://www.hitfix.com/blogs/2008-12-6-moti...nt-leaks-online http://chud.com/articles/articles/18792/1/...RNET/Page1.html http://www.slashfilm.com/2009/03/31/x-men-...-leaked-online/

    Friday Night Lights...

    It's official, Friday Night Lights got a renewal for 2 seasons of 13 episodes. http://www.variety.com/article/VR111800187...yid=14&cs=1 From what Jason Katims is quoted as saying it sounds like season 5 will be the last, but at least that gives the writers 2 years you bring the series home. I can't wait to see what season 4 brings. The closing moments of season 3 really opens the series up to go in many interesting directions. I also like that they introduced new characters to pick up the slack for those departing as regulars.

    One very cool Easter-egg in the Christian / Sun scene was the blond haired women ((ghost?) Claire?) hidden in the corner of the room. Other cool stuff: - The landing strip being on the secondary island, partly thanks to Sawyer and Kate breaking some rocks early in season 3 - I wonder if Ben knew his life would depend on it at the time? - The kid's name is Ethan. - When the pilot attempts to make a mayday call, the transmission of "the numbers" can be heard. - We get to meet Radzinsky (The guy building the model of "The Swan"). In the flashback of the season 2 episode Live Together, Die Alone, Kelvin tells Desmond that his original hatch partner Radzinsky committed suicide by a shotgun blast to the head, hence the blood stain on the ceiling. - Sawyer's smackdown of Jack was on the money, in re-guard to thinking instead of just reacting.

    I really liked that episode, especially all the parallels between the original Oceanic 6 flight and the Ajira flight 316. - Jack on both occasions escorting a dead(?) body. - Jack was offered condolences by an unknown man (played by Saïd Taghmaoui) waiting in line to board the same flight, Sayid offered his condolences in the same way before boarding Oceanic 815. - Jack reading a letter on the flight, like Sawyer was on Oceanic 815. - Frank Lupidas takes his place as the pilot after missing out on piloting the original Oceanic flight. - Ben arriving late and only just making the flight, like Hurley did on the Oceanic flight. - Ben is injured, as was Locke when travelling on the original flight. - Ben gets up to use the bathroom, like Charlie on the original flight. - Hurley reading a foreign comic book like Walt was on the original flight. - Hurley has brought a Guitar, like Charlie did. - Sayid is handcuffed and being escorted by a Marshall, like Kate was on the original flight. - Sun is holding Jin's wedding ring - Rose was holding Bernard's ring on flight 815. I also think we can expect some new Castaways, perhaps even "Tailies": - The unknown man who offers his condolences to Jack and who Hurley tells to 'Buckle up" is played by Saïd Taghmaoui who has starred in many movies (Three Kings, Spartan, Traitor, Vantage Point, G.I. Joe) - The Marshall played by Zuleikha Robinson (A series regular on New Amsterdam) - The flight attendant played by Kavita Patil (she is seen often in "The Unit" as the chief comms officer) could be the new Cindy. - The women who is lingering in the background while Jack is drinking at the bar is played by Patti Hastie, who played a nurse in the Shannon flashback episode 'Abandoned". She could be the new Anna Lucia, who also met Jack at a bar. Lastly, when the original Oceanic Flight 815 crashed Jack saved Hurley and a pregnant Claire. After returning to the island Jack saves Hurley and Kate - could Kate be pregnant? (this would also make her mirror Claire from the original flight).

    No, I only cast the winning vote on the four as highlighted above. On the other occasions I voted for the loser and simply made the result closer then it would have been.

    Movie Tournament 2009 Round 1

    By my count I only cast the deciding vote in 4 of the 64 match-ups, the best being All The President's Men over Lawrence of Arabia. As for The Godfather over Reservoir Dogs, it was probably one of the toughest choices on the list, but I had watched The Godfather Trilogy only a month ago, which put it over the edge.

    Anna Torv probably didn't have to sleep with anyone to get the role, family connections is a more likely scenario - she is Rupert Murdoch's niece.
