Entertainment Weekly’s Michael Ausiello reports that the geek duo are near to a deal to appear on Heroes for multi-episode arcs. True to type, it seems they will be playing comic-book nerds.
Peter Clute adds to the the geek cool factor of Hasbro’s new Falcon with detailing, a motion sensor, and additional lighting.
Also at the Giz: Heroes’ writer Jesse Alexander guest-reviews the (unpimped) Falcon.
While I don’t doubt there were still plenty of Star Wars fans still roaming around Saturday and Sunday, with most of the panels being on Friday there wasn’t much new floating around. Well, except for the Mandalorian wedding. (Oye vey.) And Cinematical posted a brief review of Fanboys. And the official site has more pictures, of course, while Rebelscum continues exhaustively documenting the booths and products of every licensee.
- The Dollhouse panel featured Joss Whedon, Eliza Dushku and Tamoh Penikett.
- SPOILERS: They showed the entire first episode of Heroes S3. That’s so not cool. Well, for us, anyway.
- Sorry Paula, but they just won’t shut up about Battlestar Galactica.
- Video: The Movie Blog nabs a few minutes with Paul Ens; Naomi Novik gets a gift from a fan; See a teaser for Pixar’s next, Up.
- Also: Neil Gaiman’s new project, Lost, Futurama, Terminator Salvation, and The Sarah Conner Chronicles

Producers are starting to drop tidbits to get us all excited for the upcoming season. (And I am all for that.)
It looks like Heroes is going to go for the more philosophical bent in the upcoming volume. And E!’s Watch with Kristin has some dish on which cast members will be regulars and which will be floating.
We just have to hold out until the end of September!
This is shaping up to be an odd TV season. Things are good. (Many new attempts at genre shows.) Things are bad. (Writers’ strike.)
- And why is Heroes struggling? Well, producer Tim Kring is admitting to making some mistakes with how this season’s story is unfolding. (I’m still enjoying it, but there are some valid points.)
Let us bow our heads at the (hopefully temporary) passing of the planned Heroes spin-off Origins.
Okay. The writers and the studios are having some “issues.” But did they have to kill a shiny new Heroes show? ::sigh::
Geez. How many people are going to be in this movie?
Oh, the drama!
