Today’s update is probably the shortest one I have done in a very long time, but most of the news seemed to be about reality programs (boring! – at least to me) and the Twilight: Eclipse red-carpet premiere last night in Los Angeles, making for a very meager update to share with all you kind folk. Hopefully that will change next week.
Jonny Lee Miller (Eli Stone) will appear in a multi-episode arc on Dexter, playing a mysterious man who ends up tangled in a storyline with Julia Stiles. (Variety)
Jordana Spiro has fallen out of Love Bites, the upcoming romantic anthology series at NBC due to her contractual commitment to the TBS comedy My Boys, which returns for a 4th season on July 25. No official word has been announced on whether the pilot that was filmed with Spiro starring alongside Becky Newton (Ugly Betty) will be recast or reshot. (Michael Ausiello at Entertainment Weekly)
Channing Tatum is to star in the sci-fi romantic epic Ion, which revolves around a man who travels to different Earths and dimensions in order to find his reincarnated lover. As you can imagine, comparisons to Avatar are being loosely thrown around as the success of it and the likes of Star Trek and District 9 last year have lead to several sci-fi projects being put into development lately.
