If Michelle Rodriguez Could Play Any Superheroine She’d Choose One Greg Rucka Has Written [VIDEO]

Michelle Rodriguez recently uploaded a YouTube video in which she answered a fan question: “If you could play any superheroine, who would you want to play and why?” She chose one of Greg Rucka’s characters. We agree, Michelle, Greg is pretty awesome at what he does. And a reminder that Rucka and Michael Lark’s Lazarus just picked up an Eisner nomination for Best New Series.

Ron Moore’s New Show Helix Starts Tonight on Syfy. Here’s the First 15 Minutes.

Still on the fence as to whether to watch Helix, the new show by Battlestar Galactica remake showrunner Ron Moore? Watch the first 15 minutes and see what you think. Personally, the characters look a bit too by-the-book for my tastes (The head of the base has a mysterious secret! The assistant doctor has a crush on her boss! The boss’ estranged wife is on the team!). But the phrase “frakked up” gets dropped, and I appreciate that. Here’s hoping I’ll be pleasantly surprised when the first two episodes air tonight on Syfy.

Fili and Kili Talk About Pronunciation, Barrels, Desolation of Smaug

Aidan Turner and Dean O’Gorman play two members of Middle Earth’s only all-dwarf boy band, Kili and Fili (respectively). Turner received the brunt of the teasing from other actors for being the dwarf who had to put on the least prosthetic makeup (just a bit to pad out the end of his nose). The two actors talk to Steve Weintraub of Collider about Desolation of Smaug. So who’s going to the midnight showing tonight?

Doctor Who Christmas Special Pics Give Us a Taste of the Pain to Come

Warning: Mighty weird-looking Cybermen behind the jump. The non-Clara lady is Tasha Lem, played by Orla Brady, about whom we’ve heard some interesting (and potentially spoilery) rumors. Whoever she is, I’m loving that beehive.

Evangeline Lilly Not a Fan of Butt Shots

We wrote a post last month in which we joked that Tauriel must have put her foot down about butt shots, because in their paired poster, it’s Legolas who’s got his back to the camera, while Tauriel gets an action pose. We had no idea (though we’re delighted to find out) that Evangeline Lilly, the actress who plays her, is also less-than-enamored of the photography trope.

Desolation Of Smaug Synopsis Explains How The Second Hobbit Movie Will Fill 3 Hours

Just the other day I was having a conversation with my brother about Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit. The only exposure he’d had to the story was the Rankin/Bass animated feature we grew up on and he was surprised there would be three whole films from Jackson. “But aren’t they already up to the dragon?” he asked. Yes. Yes they are. Thanks to a new official, and in-depth summary, we now know exactly what to expect from The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. Take a look.
