    ...and it's Donal Logue's Harvey Bullock? Not the most splashy option to start off your marketing campaign with, but they have a plan, I guess. Reminder: Last week we shared some very ununofficial snaps of James Gordon and the Penguin. (Deadline)

  4. Beast Gets Schooled by JK Simmons in Insurance Commercial [Video]

    Highly Successful Marketing Strategies

    At some point, commercials for insurance stopped being about the drama that befalls us after tragedy and became sources of comedy and entertainment. But one of the more memorable campaigns belongs to Farmers Insurance and its spokescharacter Professor Nathaniel Burke of the University of Farmers, who is played by JK Simmons. The cult-astic actor, who appeared as J. Jonah Jameson in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy, has maintained his Marvel connections by appearing with X-Men: First Class's Beast in this cross-promotional spot. Beast -- not played by Nicholas Hoult here -- is an "X-change student" from "the X-Men school," whose counterpart is used as target practice by Havok (who is played by Lucas Till in a scene from the movie).

  5. New Portal 2 Video Spotlighting Turrets Reminds Us How Funny Portal 2 Will Be

    Not only does this new Portal 2 video remind us of how funny the game is going to be, or how much we all love the sing-songy gun turrets, but it's narrated by Aperture Science Founder and CEO Cave Johnson, voiced by the talented and hilarious J.K. Simmons. Portal 2 releases April 19, which is only a couple of weeks away.

  6. Villain For The Amazing Spider-Man Revealed?

    Spoilery

    Did C. Thomas Howell, co-star of the upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man, just leak the main villain? In a podcast for The Retroradio, Howell said that he couldn't talk about a lot of the details, but may have revealed a fairly major one that had yet to be confirmed. It's been out there, but just in case you haven't seen it and you don't want it spoiled, the quote containing the villain will be after the jump. (Also, it is revealed pretty early in the podcast linked to above, so just be warned if you are avoiding the spoiler.)

  7. About Ten Minutes of Portal 2 Reveals New Main Character [Video]

    Over at PAX East, the guys at Piki Geek were able to capture some footage of a Portal 2 demonstration, which featured some of the intro, and an appearance by J.K. Simmons as new main character Cave Johnson, Aperture Science founder and CEO. The shaky-cam video doesn't contain story spoilers, unless you consider the game's humorous tutorial or the existence of J.K. Simmons a spoiler, but you're already aware of those things after having read the previous sentence, so what harm can watching the video do?

  8. Our First Look At the Next Airbender

    There's an appa for that

    Ever since that James Cameron movie quietly hit the box office, people who want to talk about Avatar: The Last Airbender have had to be specific. So: This is the first official look we've gotten at the face of Korra, the heroine of Avatar: The Legend of Korra, the greenlit miniseries and sequel to the Airbender series, which is happening despite the schlock and awe of M. Knight Shyamalan's The Last Airbender movie. Seven major castmembers have been announced today, as well as the characters they will be playing.
