Vince Gilligan Returning to TV, Pyro Is the New Bruce Willis, and Other Casting Things
- Vince Gilligan is returning to television, but not for the Walter White Christmas special we've been hoping for. He's joining a group that includes Walton Goggins, Nathan Fillion, Robert Patrick, Paget Brewster, Tim Heidecker, Eric Wareheim, Ben Folds, and Mitchell Hurwitz in filling a guest star part on Community this season. Maybe Gilligan, Hurwitz, and Dan Harmon can talk about weird it is that they're celebrity television creators now.
- Writer-director-actor Tim Blake Nelson's Anesthesia has reportedly added Kristen Stewart, acting's anesthesia. The film is "about a group of New Yorkers whose lives are touched by the same philosophy professor," and Stewart typically delivers numbing, unfeeling performances, if you didn't catch what I was getting at there.
- Remember how SyFy is making a 12 Monkeys TV show? Well, now they've reportedly got their lead in Aaron Stanford, the Nikita actor probably best known as being Pyro in the X-Men franchise and not at all being Bruce Willis.
