Score! Television’s favorite curmudgeon with a heart of gold is going to be playing one of film’s greatest curmudgeons with a heart of gold. Parks and Recreation star Nick Offerman has been cast as the cantankerous coach in Amazon’s A League of their Own series.

The series, helmed by Abbi Jacobson and Will Graham, is an hourlong live-action drama that focuses on the women of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League. The show will be inspired by, but not based directly on, the movie with which it shares a name. The young women who make up the Rockford Peaches will still be the focus, but we shouldn’t expect to see the same characters or exact plotlines from Penny Marshall‘s beloved film.

Last Voyage of the Demeter cast dracula

Last Voyage of the Demeter, one of several new Dracula-themed movies on the way, has added some new cast members. One exciting addition is David Dastmalchian, an actor who has been working for a while but who now seems to be on the cusp of really blowing up what with his upcoming role in The Suicide Squad.

More on the new latest Last Voyage of the Demeter casting below.

Well, maybe this time will turn out differently. John Wick 4 recently started production and is still adding to its line-up of heavy-hitters, and the latest news will surely bring a smile to the face of many a genre fan — and maybe just a little bit of angst, too. Deadline reports that Scott Adkins, an icon of countless direct-to-TV action films but who has yet to receive the same treatment from Hollywood blockbusters, is in negotiations to join the next installment of the John Wick series.

knives out 2 cast ethan hawke

Well, well, well. Rian Johnson, you sneaky devil. While we already have a long list of cast members for Knives Out 2, it seems like we don’t know the whole story yet. The Netflix-bound sequel is currently filming in Greece, and recently released set pics reveal that Academy Award-nominee and all-around welcome presence Ethan Hawke is in the film, too. Unless this is all a coincidence and Ethan Hawke just happened to be in Greece and then wander into the middle of a scene being filmed. Which sounds unlikely, but not impossible. You never know where Ethan Hawke is going to turn up.

Dwayne Johnson - Highest Paid Actors of 2020

Ho ho ho nooooo.

Nothing says Christmas like capitalism, so Dwayne Johnson and his Seven Bucks Productions are teaming up with Amazon Studios for Red One, a “Christmas-themed feature project.” Jumanji: The Next Level producer Hiram Garcia penned the treatment for the project. The Fast and the Furious writer Chris Morgan will be penning the screenplay, which Amazon describes as “a globe-trotting, four-quadrant action-adventure comedy, imagining a whole new universe to explore within the holiday genre.”

optimus primal rise of the beasts

At long last, a new Transformers movie will answer the eternal question: “What if Optimus Prime, but ape?” The latest entry in the clanking, cacophonous series, Transformers: Rise of the Beasts, will feature Optimus Primal, a big robot ape that the official Transformers Wiki says might be “the greatest Cybertronian hero who has ever lived.” Bold claim there, Transformers Wiki. And when Optimus Primal shows up in Rise of the Beasts, he’ll be featuring the voice talents of Ron Perlman, which you have to admit, is pretty good casting.

true love cast

If you’re going to make a sci-fi movie, it probably can’t hurt to get a cast that’s intimately familiar with the genre. Director Gareth Edwards apparently agrees, as Deadline reports that the latest to join his next production titled True Love include a trio of sci-fi veterans headlined by Danny McBride, Gemma Chan, and Benedict Wong. The newcomers will be joining previously-announced John David-Washington, ostensibly playing the lead of the True Love cast after navigating temporal pincer movements in Christopher Nolan’s Tenet.

Supernatural ending

There’s some major drama brewing behind the scenes at The CW. Jensen Ackles, one of the stars of the network’s mega-hit genre series Supernatural, is developing a Supernatural prequel series called The Winchesters that he will executive produce alongside his wife, Danneel Ackles.

The problem? Jared Padalecki, who played Jensen’s character’s brother and co-starred with him for all 15 seasons of the original series, is not only not involved with the new show, but he had no idea this prequel project was in the works at all – he learned about it for the first time when the news made the rounds on Twitter. I guess the idea of “brotherly love” didn’t include giving Padalecki a heads up about this.
