Briefly: Here’s a curious piece of casting. Haley Joel Osment has joined the cast of the currently-shooting Entourage movie, written and directed by Doug Ellin. Osment, however, won’t be playing himself, which would have made sense in that wacky world. Instead he’s playing Travis McCree, the son of Billy Bob Thorton‘s character Larsen McCree, who is paying for Vince’s (Adrian Grenier) new movie. Travis is sent to oversee everything and gets a little too caught up in the Hollywood lifestyle. The film doesn’t have a release date, but late 2014 or early 2015 is likely. [Deadline]

True Detective

Things are really heating up on HBO’s True Detective. The crime drama created by Nic Pizzolatto and directed by Cary Fukunaga has sparked all kinds of speculation, debate and praise from critics and fans alike. Last week the focal point of discussion was the epic tracking shot. This Sunday’s episode, The Secret Fate of All Life, finally broke the show’s past and present structure with elements of subtlety and surprise.

There are only three episodes left of the show — at least in this first season incarnation with stars Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson. So now is as good a time as any to delve into the mythology and making of the series. Below, we’ve found two making of featurettes about this week’s episode, plus a free download to the book The King In Yellow by Robert W. Chambers, which is becoming a heavy influence on the show.

Twitter absolutely exploded Sunday night when the fourth episode of True Detective aired. It ended with a six minute long take, which is about 5 minutes and 45 seconds longer than 99.9% of the shots on television. Apparently, it was breathtaking. I wouldn’t know because I haven’t watched it yet, but now you can as the shot has made it online. Below, check it out as well as see the full version of the above image, a brand new Mondo poster for the show by Phantom City Creative. Read More »

Briefly: The second season of House of Cards won’t hit Netflix for another ten days, but a third season is already a definite. The show has just been renewed by Netflix, so exec producers David Fincher and Beau Willimon have a mandate to go back to work. Not that this is a surprise, given that Netflix execs have pledged to continue the show. But it’s good to know that we’ll have thirteen more hours of Kevin Spacey as power-hungry politician Frank Underwood, and (even more so) Robin Wright as Underwood’s iron-willed wife. [LAT]
