Mark Ruffalo to actually PLAY the Hulk in The Avengers!

Good news one and all! Not only is actor Mark Ruffalo going to play Bruce Banner in the upcoming Avengers movie but he will also play his green counterpart in a motion-capture performance!

Where the Hulk was solely computer generated in his last two outings (we're talking Eric Bana's Hulk and Edward Norton's The Incredible Hulk – NOT The Incredible Hulk TV series with Bill Bixby and Lou Ferrigno) this time the green hero will be the result of the performance of his main protagonist in actor Mark Ruffalo.

Matt Smith talks about his upcoming appearance on The Sarah Jane Adventures

Being Human Producer teases the return of Herrick for season 3

Herrick played by Jason Watkins

Talking to SFX Magazine, Being Human producer Phil Trethowan has revealed a few tidbits about the upcoming season three of the popular BBC series about a ghost, a vampire and two werewolves living together.

If you recall, Herrick (played by Jason Watkins) was killed at the end of season 1 by George (Russell Tovey) in his werewolf form, but the vampire was resurrected at the end of season 2 in a very shocking twist. Now Herrick will be back in season 3 of course but he won't specifically be the main villain in the series.

Doctor Who Magazine #426 Cover Features the Old Cybermen!

The new Doctor Who Magazine issue 426 is out now in the UK and it features the old style cybermen.

Interestingly, it also says that there will be ''two new seasons'' of Doctor Who to be shown in 2011. Are they saying that series 6 is two seasons? Will the split actually make it series 6 (made of 7 episodes) and series 7 (made of the back 6 episodes)? Will it be explained?

Sadly, I wont be able to read this until about a month or two since we're behind with the publication in North America.

Yesterday, a story broke in The Sun that beloved British actor Martin Freeman -- hot off a successful run on BBC's Sherlock as Dr. Watson -- had been in the run to play the lead role in The Hobbit, that the actor had been offered a seven figure deal, and that he sadly had to turn it down because of his commitment to film the second series of Sherlock.

Night of the Living Trekkies - Book review

Night of the Living Trekkies
Writers: Kevin David Anderson and Sam Stall
Publisher: Quirk Books

After the success of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, which led to more novels in the same vein (Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters for example), Quirk books decided to tackle the worlds of both Dawn of the Dead and of Star Trek -  most especially its fan base, generally known the world over as Trekkies - in its newest release called Night of the Living Trekkies. The result of this mash-up is a book that doesn’t take itself too seriously, but takes all matter of geekiness to a higher level and provides quite a few chuckles along the way.
