      Original Cast of TRAINSPOTTING Confirmed for Sequel

      It’s been almost twenty years since Danny Boyle‘s Trainspotting brought us breakout performances of Ewan McGregor, Jonny Lee Miller and Kelly Macdonald. Not their first performances, but quite possibly some of the earliest that people remember. (We of course first remember seeing Miller in 1995’s Hackers.) Boyle’s been vocal about wanting to do a follow-up to the film for years and it’s now been confirmed that his sequel to the 1996 film will feature the original cast.

      Based on the 1993 novel of the same name, Trainspotting followed a group of heroin addicts in late ’80s Scotland through their day-to-day lives. A grim look at addiction shown through the direction of Boyle was not just a beautiful film but solidified him as a director and became the example most of his later films have been measured against. There have been talks about a sequel for years that would follow the Irvine Welsh book’s sequel, Porno, (obviously this won’t be the name of the movie) which takes place about 9 years after the events of the first book. With 20 years gone by and everyone involved having aged, it’s safe to say the sequel will pick up a little later than the events of book.

      According to The Hollywood Reporter, a deal has been struck that includes the original cast including Ewan McGregor, Jonny Lee Miller, Ewen Bremner, and Robert Carlyle as well as the first film’s screenwriter John Hodge. If the result of getting the whole team back together results in anything near the original, we’ll be overjoyed.

      It’ll be interesting to see how the sequel is handled in terms of perspective. The Trainspotting novel had shifting narratives between characters (as does Porno) while the majority of the film is shown primarily through the perspective of McGregor’s Mark Renton. Will we get to see the world through the eyes of Sick Boy, Spud, and Begbie this time, or will it all be secondhand through Renton once more? We can’t wait to find out!

          How Lucifer was inspired by David Bowie

          http://nerdist.com/tca-2016-how-luci...y-david-bowie/

          David Bowie‘s presence is going to be felt in a big way this fall on Fox.

          The network’s new drama Lucifer is based on the character created by Neil Gaiman in the DC/Vertigo comic series The Sandman, and developed more later by writer Mike Carey in his long-running spinoff series named after the character. But what isn’t widely known is the fact that the character of Lucifer (played by Tom Ellis in the new series) is actually based on the real-life public persona of Bowie, who passed away earlier this week.

          “David Bowie was what the original character was based on, the sketches and stuff that was in the graphic novel,” Ellis said at the 2016 TCA Winter Press Tour. “What we did do is take some of Bowie’s music and infused it into the pilot. Lucifer is a massive David Bowie fan. Music is a massive part of the show. It was a big thing in the pilot script and it’s something we’re trying to continue for the series. Lucifer’s taste in music is a big thing. He’s a big appreciator of music.”

          But as executive producer Jonathan Littman explained, they didn’t want to straight-up mimic the late, great icon.

          “Because of the way he was so explicitly drawn, unless we could get David Bowie, it’s probably better not to try and mimic David Bowie,” Littman said. “We felt like taking this fresh casting chance.”

          Executive producer Joe Henderson added, “We found a different way to encapsulate that effortless cool that was David Bowie.”

          Something that all the showrunners were excited about is how Lucifer is a procedural, but not in the way that people might be used to on a Fox show. Yes, Lucifer works with LAPD Detective Chloe Decker (Lauren German) on her cases, but for a unique purpose.

          “Lucifer is fascinated by the crimes, why people choose to do evil and deception,” executive producer Len Wiseman said. “He loves it and gets off on it. It’s a study for him where he wants to see why humans are doing what they’re doing. If they get put in prison, he doesn’t care. He just wants to see them get punished.”

          And don’t expect Lucifer to be the pure embodiment of evil. The show is going to explore who he really is deep down, not just what his job used to be, as the leader of Hell.

          “We take our cues from the comic book character,” Henderson said. “The devil is the fallen son of God. He’s not evil. He’s just the rebellious son. He’s mischievous, he’s playful, but he’s also honest and he embraces his desires. Lucifer is all about exploring humanity and exploring desires. There’s no pretense. There’s nothing evil about him. Sometimes, the truth really shall set you free.”

          Ellis explained that the main question of the show is whether Lucifer is the devil because he’s intrinsically evil or because God decided he was.

          “He just wants to be loved at the end of the day,” executive producer Ildy Modrovich said. “He’s the eternal teenager.”

                  Fargo: Ewan McGregor joins season three

                  http://www.empireonline.com/people/e...-season-three/

                  FX's Emmy Award-winning Fargo continues to impress with the announcement that Ewan McGregor has been signed to join the show in not one, but two roles. Said to be the focus of the third season of the show, which is supposed to take place closer to the present than either of the two preceding years did, the actor has been cast as brothers Emit and Ray Stussey.

                  Says the network of those roles, “Emmit Stussy is the Parking Lot King of Minnesota. A handsome, self-made, real estate mogul and family man, Emmit sees himself as an American success story. His slightly younger brother, Ray Stussy, on the other hand is more of a cautionary tale. Balding, pot-bellied, Ray is the kind of guy who peaked in high school. Now a parole officer, Ray has a huge chip on his shoulder about the hand he’s been dealt, and he blames his brother, Emmit, for his misfortunes.”

                  Little more is known about the third season. McGregor, of course, is known for his roles in the Trainspotting films (the second of which, T2: Trainspoitting 2 is currently filming) and his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi in the Star Wars prequels.

                              Los Pollos Hermanos From 'Breaking Bad' Is Coming to NYC

                              https://www.thrillist.com/eat/new-yo...c-pop-up-store

                              If you binged all five seasons of*Breaking Bad*and kind of thought the food from Los Pollos Hermanos looked good, you're in luck: The fried chicken shack/drug front is popping up in NYC (presumably without the meth).
                              The pop-up is tied into the upcoming third season of*Breaking Bad*spinoff/prequel,*Better Call Saul,*which will reintroduce Los Pollos' owner (and Walter White's nemesis)*Gustavo Fring.*

                              Ahead of the show's April 10 premiere on AMC, the pop-up -- which has already hit Austin and LA -- will be stationed at*243 Pearl St, a*Citizen’s Parking*location in FiDi, from*11am-8pm on April 9, and 10am-to 8pm on April 10.
                              According to Eater, the other pop-ups have featured tacos, burritos, and burgers -- but strangely, no fried chicken. Seems like a case for*Mike Ehrmantraut.
