The procession of Australian actors trying their luck in Hollywood continues with Nikolai Nikolaeff and Damien Bodie the latest to secure Us management.

Nikolaeff has signed with The Schiff Company, which represents A-list talent including Keira Knightley, Eminem, Helena Bonham Carter, Jeff Bridges, Dougray Scott and Dylan McDermott. Bodie signed with Genesis Entertainment Partners.

Exclusive: Adam 8 Filmmaker Tells How a “Someday” Idea Becomes a Sci-Fi Feature Film

Editor’s Note: I met Sean Williams at Comic-Con’s Hall H between panels on the first day of the Con this past July, chatting as people do. It turns out that Sean is a filmmaker, and he’s working on a sci-fi project – travel to another planet! strong women! – that sounds really great.

Last week Sean let me know that he was ready to start “officially” talking about the project, and wanted to know what I’d like to know. I told him I wanted to know, basically, everything. How the project got started, who’s involved, where he is in the process, etc. What follows is the narrative he wrote up on the spot on his phone and sent to me via Facebook Messenger in response. One long narrative that was completely engaging. He even copied and inserted biographies as he went along. It’s no wonder the man has won writing awards.

For those of you in "Fringe" withdrawal, we've got something to tide you over. Despite rumors of cancellation earlier in the year, the casting is ongoing. Not sure if we can do the dance of joy yet, fellow "Fringe" fans, but this can't be a bad sign.

It’s been well known to those of us following the buildup to the network premiere of Terra Nova that the cast roster wasn’t complete as we knew it, and Fox proved that this week by announcing the addition of some new cast members: Simone Kessell, Ashley Zukerman, and Emilia Burns. All three newbies are Australian, by the way. Please see our updated cast bios section for more information on these actors and join the Terra Nova Forums to talk about them.

Simone Kessell is joining Terra Nova as Alicia Washington, who The Hollywood Reporter says is billed as being second-in-command to Stephen Lang’s Commander Taylor, which makes her de-facto next in line as far as colony authority. Kessell is no stranger to the small screen, having had previous parts on Fringe, CSI: Miami, Reaper and other shows. Her character is said to be a “major player” on Terra Nova,

Emelia Burns and Ashley Zukerman Join Terra Nova

  • Boomtron
Fox’s Terra Nova has cast Ashley Zukerman (The Pacific) and Emelia Burns (The Elephant Princess) as recurring characters according to The Hollywood Reporter. Zukerman plays Lucas, a major character that is “mysterious and enigmatic” and has a connection to Commander Nathaniel Taylor (Stephen Lang). You can expect to see him in four episodes of the show beginning halfway through the first season. I’m not sure what his connections to Taylor are but, more likely than not, they’re sinister in nature, although Lang came off as a good guy to me even if he is a bit rough around the edges. He could be someone from Taylor’s past who knows toe curling secrets about him.

As for Burns, she will be playing one of Taylor’s soldiers named Reilly. She doesn’t seem to be as important as Zukerman’s character.

Terra Nova is one this fall

Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth Draw Mixed Reactions in Hunger Games Casting

Lionsgate announced Monday that the roles of Peeta and Gale had been cast for the movie adaptation of Suzanne Collins' The Hunger Games. Fan reaction has ranged from aggravation to confusion to excitement. We talked with the most popular fan sites to get their reactions.

Hunger-Games.net

Personally, I am quite happy with the casting. Jennifer Lawrence is 20, therefore casting older actors for Peeta and Gale makes sense. I have seen Liam Hemsworth in the TV Show The Elephant Princess where he was a part of the main love triangle - so I can totally see him play out Gale. As for Josh Hutcherson, he has the soft boyish charm that Hunger Games fans associate with Peeta. I'm sure we can all trust the makeup artists to create brilliance onscreen.

The Kenneth Branagh Gameshow: Pick Your Thor!

Nikkie Finke reported yesterday about the upcoming Thor film and how Marvel and director Kenneth Branagh are facing a big challenge in trying to cast the lead character. In her report, she lists some of the candidates in the running to wield Mjolnir and become the God of Thunder.

Interestingly, she also points out that they are considering Josh Hartnett not only for the role of Loki, the God of Mischief, but to play The Mighty Thor himself. Now, I can see him giving an interesting performance as Loki but my suspension of belief doesn’t extend to him playing Thor.

While there’s some desire by Marvel to see Hartnett or another recognizable actor to play Thor, there’s also a lot of interest in casting an unknown. Personally, I don’t know which would be best for this movie but I liked the idea of casting a relatively
