Jesse Plemons black mass

It’s really cause for celebration any time Jesse Plemons books a new role, but his latest gig may be something of a mixed blessing. Plemons has entered talks, along with Juno Temple, for Scott Cooper‘s Black Mass, a biopic of gangster Whitey Bugler starring Johnny Depp.

That’s the good news. The bad news is that this might mean Plemons is no longer involved with Star Wars Episode VII, since the timing looks off. Hit the jump for all the details.

Jesse Plemons as Landry Clarke in Friday Night Lights

It’s pretty clear at this point that the Friday Night Lights movie sequel isn’t happening. Even Peter Berg, who’s been pushing the idea for years now, seems to have given up. But that doesn’t necessarily mean we’ve seen the last of the Dillonites.

NBC revealed today that FNL characters Landry Clarke (Jesse Plemons) and Billy Riggins (Derek Phillips) are slated to appear in an upcoming Parenthood web series. It’s one of several that the network has planned for the near future; Chicago Fire, Parks and Recreation, and Grimm will also get digital spinoffs during the Olympics hiatus. Hit the jump for plot details and more.

Update: The first part of the web series is online now. See it below.

We heard last month that Disney was expecting J.J. Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan to turn in a Star Wars Episode VII script in January, and it looks like they’ve met their deadline. Abrams confirmed at a recent event that the script was indeed complete, and that they were “deep” into pre-production.

Part of that process is finding some stars, of course. While Disney has yet to officially announce any new actors, Abrams verified a recent casting rumor that Jesse Plemons was up for a part — though he dismissed a lot of other casting reports as “a lot of noise.” Hit the jump for his comments on the script, Plemons, shooting in IMAX and on film, and more.

Plemons Saber

After playing eye-catching roles in Friday Night Lights and Breaking Bad, you might have had a feeling that Jesse Plemons was ready to bust out in a big way. Now it seems that breakout potential could take him to a galaxy far, far away.

The Wrap reports the actor is being eyed for one of the major leads in J.J. Abrams‘ highly anticipated Star Wars Episode VII. Plemons has not yet been cast but is in what the source believes to be the final stages of the casting process. He’s considered by insiders to be a leading contender.  Read More »

As we promised in “The Ones Who Knock” Kickstarter, I will be doing weekly recaps here for each episode of Breaking Bad. For those of you unfamiliar with my recapping style, it’s less of a straightforward plot summary and more a distillation of the most interesting elements of each week’s episode.  The recaps will spoil everything up through the current episode (S5E15 “Granite State”), but won’t spoil any future episodes or even scenes from the “Next Time” segment of the show.  There will, however, be some light speculation and straight-up crackpot theories.  No theory or speculation is based on foreknowledge of the show.  So hold on to your pork pie hats, because here we go.
