Back in the Day

High school only takes up a few years, and yet to hear pop culture tell it, it’s one of the most defining periods of our lives. The movies are rife with characters either in high school and learning to understand themselves, or characters long out of high school but desperate to relive to the good old days for whatever reason.

The indie comedy Back in the Day falls into the latter category, following an insurance salesman who goes home for his twenty-year reunion. The cast is filled with familiar faces from all over: Michael Rosenbaum, best known as Lex Luthor on Smallville, wrote, directed, and stars; his former flame is played by Homeland‘s Morena Baccarin, and his old gang includes Nick Swardson, Stan from Mad Men, and the Old Spice Guy. Watch the trailer after the jump.

A few months ago we showed you a clip from Showtime’s buzzy new series Homeland, a CIA thriller by 24 executive producers Alex Gansa and Howard Gordon. Based on the Israeli series Prisoner of War by Gideon Raff (who’s also an exec producer here), the story centers around agent Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes), who comes to suspect that recently returned POW Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis) isn’t everything he seems. Though Brody is being hailed as a hero, Mathison alone believes that he’s secretly turned his allegiances to al Qaeda. Mandy Patinkin and Morena Baccarin also star, as Mathison’s boss/mentor and Brody’s wife, respectively.

Since the last time we wrote about the show, it’s screened for a few critics and has quickly become one of the most highly praised pilots of the fall TV season. Though the series won’t actually debut on Showtime for two more weeks, you can watch the first episode online right now. More after the jump.

Update: I’ve heard from reliable sources that Mary Elizabeth Winstead is not testing for The Avengers.

Nick Fury himself, Samuel L. Jackson, recently told Jimmy Fallon that he would be doing tests with “like five” different actresses who are up for a yet-to-be-cast role in Joss Whedon‘s The Avengers. That role is for Fury’s assistant and The Hollywood Reporter says four of the actresses who will be testing are Morena Baccarin (who has previously worked with Whedon on Firefly and Serenity and is now seen on V), Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Scott Pilgrim vs. The World) Jessica Lucas (Cloverfield) and Cobie Smulders (How I Met Your Mother).

Read what little else we know about the role and do some speculating after the break. Read More »
