Netflix Casts Deborah Ann Woll in Marvel’s Daredevil

With True Blood taking a bow after its sixth season this year, Deborah Ann Woll who plays vamp Jessica Hamby, has already booked her next gig as Daredevil’s love interest, Karen Page. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Woll joins a cast which will also include Charlie Cox as Daredevil, Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson, Vincent D’Onofrio as Kingpin, and Rosario Dawson in “a mysterious role.” Netflix picked up 13 episodes of Marvel’s Daredevil, which will drop sometime in 2015.

Game of Thrones Shares Season 5 Director Roster

Entertainment Weekly has shared the line-up of Game of Thrones directors for season five. On the list: Michael Slovis (Breaking Bad, Law & Order: SVU); Mark Mylod (Shameless, Entourage); Jeremy Podeswa (Boardwalk Empire, The Tudors); Miguel Sapochnik (House, Fringe); and previous Thrones director David Nutter. Surprisingly, past directors Neil Marshall, Michelle MacLaren, and Alan Taylor did not make it onto season five. Also, showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are stepping down as directors next season — but they’ll still running the show, so don’t lose your head over it.

Nasim Pedrad and Three Freshman Cast Members Leave SNL

Nasim Pedrad, known best for her impressions of Kim Kardashian, Barbara Walters, and Arianna Huffington, is leaving Saturday Night Live after five seasons to co-star in the upcoming Fox sitcom, Mulaney. Adding to the personnel shake-up at 30 Rock, Saturday Night Live will not be renewing contracts for three of their freshmen cast members: Brooks Wheelan, Noel Wells, and John Milhiser.

Bryan Cranston to Star in HBO’s All the Way

As suspected a few weeks ago, All the Way — the Broadway play by Robert Schenkkan about President Lyndon B. Johnson’s life — will be made for TV by HBO. Bryan Cranston will reprise his role as LBJ and Schenkkan will adapt All the Way for screen. Not only did Cranston win the Tony this year for his portrayal of Johnson’s early days in the White House, but he also took the Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle and Theater World Awards. He is currently nominated for an Emmy in the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series category for his role as Walter White in Breaknig Bad. Dr. Tim Whatley sure has come all the way!

Hot In Cleveland Goes Tooney

Just when you thought Betty White couldn’t get any cuter, she’s becoming a cartoon. On Wednesday July 30, TV Land will air an animated episode of Hot in Cleveland. In addition to the cartoonization of Melanie (Valerie Bertinelli), Joy (Jane Leeves), Victoria (Wendie Malick), and Elka (Betty White), Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler will make an animated cameo as he guides the women through a psychedelic adventure which will include homages to The Walking Dead and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. See a sneak peek here.
