Carol Peletier (Melissa McBride) has released her official cookie recipe to all of AMC’s The Walking Dead‘s fans. Carol enticed Jessie’s son, Sam, to have an endless supply of her special cookies or be strapped to a tree outside of the gates and become a walker feast. In the zombie apocalypse cookies are a Godsend but especially in the situation that Sam was in, they were a blessing. Do not want to spoil the scene for any binge watchers but that scene was perfect.

Mads Mikkelsen as Hannibal Lector is sporting a very different look in the latest promo art for NBC’s Hannibal Season 3. I really like the TV series a lot. I am especially excited to see how NBC has removed our carefully-calculating Hannibal Lector from his designer suite and clean cut persona. Hannibal returns with season 3 on June 4, 2015. Other great stars cast in Hannibal Season 3 are Zachary Quinto, Glenn Fleshler, Rutina Wesley, Richard Armitage, Nina Arianda, Hugh Dancy and Gillian Anderson.

Big news… James Franco, Danny DeVito, Fred Armisen, Michael Ian Black, Gilbert Gottfried, Jim Norton, Zachary Levi and Finn Wittrock are all joining Hulu’s Deadbeat Season 2 cast. Tyler Labine stars as ghost whisperer Kevin “Pac” Pacalioglu in the horror comedy TV series. Hulu’s Deadbeat Season 2 premieres April 20, 2015. I watched the series and set it on the backburner because it is something more along the lines of a show to watch when you are all caught up with “everything” else for me personally.

Krampus Movie Adds Adam Scott, David Koechner and Toni Collette to Cast

I am stoked to see Michael Dougherty‘s Krampus (2015), this is the man who brought us Trick ‘r Treat (2007). Krampus is the reverse Santa who preys on the “bad” children. Krampus has new cast members announced with Adam Scott, David Koechner and Toni Collette. Scott and Koechner will star in father roles of mysteriously lost children. Emjay Anthony will star as the new Krampus victim with Scott as the protagonist. Collette will star as Scott’s wife. I really hope that I can see Krampus on December 4, 2015 in movie theaters, shooting is going to start soon… not leaving too much time in between.

Zachary Quinto Joins the Cast of NBC's Hannibals Season 3

NBC’s Hannibal Season 3 has just added Zachary Quinto (FX’s American Horror Story: Asylum, Star Trek, Heroes) to their roster. Hannibal is a very deep TV series that I believe is not getting as much traction as it should be. I personally love the show but do not find myself overly excited to see the next episode like other TV shows. Glenn Fleshler (True Detective) will star as Cordell Doemling who is the verbally abused medical aid to Mason Verger. Rutina Wesley (HBO’s True Blood) will also join the Hannibal TV series as Reba McClane, a blind woman who is the love interest of Francis Dolarhyde (Richard Armitage), aka The Tooth Fairy serial killer. Nina Arianda will play the part of Will Graham’s (Hugh Dancy) wife Molly. Other returning stars include Gillian Anderson and Mads Mikkelsen.

Kris Lemche Cast as Lead in Tales From the Darkside Pilot Episode

Kris Lemche Cast as Lead in Tales From the Darkside Pilot Episode

Kris Lemche has been cast as the lead in the Tales From the Darkside Reboot Pilot Episode. This is a full reboot of George A. Romero‘s horror anthology series Tales From the Darkside from the 1980’s. In CW’s Tales From the Darkside Season 1, things play out very different than the original horror anthology. There will be one main character who is present in every single episode named Newman (Lemche). Newman is described as “a weathered and tortured young man… the guide to the unsuspecting who come across The Darkside. Newman - a man with his own desperate, wrenching secrets - knows exactly what’s causing the terrifying Darkside Events that drive the series. What he doesn’t know is how to stop them.” Joe Hill (Horns (2014)) is writing and executive producing the new horror TV series. Other executive producers include Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Heather Kadin, Mitch Galin and Jerry Golod. Joe Hill is also Stephen King‘s son if that means anything in the form of even more expectations of greatness in the new TV series.

'Independence Day 2' Sequel Casts Jeff Goldblum, Jessie Usher, Liam Hemsworth and Release Date

'Independence Day 2' Sequel Casts Jeff Goldblum, Jessie Usher, Liam Hemsworth and Release Date

So just like that, Independence Day 2 (2016) casts Jeff Goldblum, Jessie Usher and Liam Hemsworth for the Independence Day Sequel. Director Roland Emmerich seems to be setting the gears in motion fast trying to make the June 24, 2015 release date for Independence Day 2. This is the sequel to the Summer 1996 hit way back to Independence Day (1996). I have found memories of Will Smith punching the alien in the face… Smith was not mentioned in the casting to return however. Jessie Usher plays the son of Captain Steven Hiller (Will Smith), Liam Hemsworth is somehow related to President Whitmore (Bill Pullman) while Jeff Goldblum returns as David Levinson.
