The more roles Vincent Cassel gets, the better off we all are.

It should be news that Archer is coming back for 3 episodes in the fall. Because that's amazing.

Also, Pacific Rim is gonna kill.

yeah love john goodman and community. Should be a win.

not sure a boba fett movie would be all that great. They simplified his origin and role in episodes 2 and 3. That character was better left a mystery as it stood from the original trilogy.

sorry I didn't add to the news this or last week but I got married this past sunday (24th) so it's been a bit hectic. Then again you all did a great job as usual :)

Have you not watched Treme at all?

Also, I really like Alexander Skarsgard, so I hope that damn Battleship movie is better than the trailer for it.
