DAN STEVENS TO LEAD MARVEL'S 'LEGION' SERIES PILOT! DOUGRAY SCOTT JOINS 'FEAR THE WALKING DEAD'! MATT CZUCHRY RETURNS TO 'GILMORE GIRLS'! NBC ORDERS 'ME & MEAN MARGARET' SITCOM

DAN STEVENS TO LEAD 
MARVEL'S 'LEGION' TV SERIES
We've only mentioned him a few days ago and now Dan Stevens is here again! You've probably heard by now that he has been cast to lead the new LEGION series pilot set in Marvel's universe and tied with X MEN! He will play David Haller who has struggled with mental illness since he was a teenager. Diagnosed as schizophrenic, David has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals for years. But after a strange encounter with a fellow patient, he’s confronted with the possibility that the voices he hears and the visions he sees might be real. Aubrey Plaza will play his friend, while Jean Smart will be his therapist. In the comics, David is the son of Professor X.

DOUGRAY SCOTT JOINS
'FEAR THE WALKING DEAD'
In other TV news, Scottish star Dougray Scott has joined the second season of FEAR THE WALKING DEAD series. In the prequel series to WALKING DEAD, he will play a confident man who is still learning to be a leader and regrets but accepts the necessary violence for a new vision! As you know, the series, which follows the early outbreak of zombie virus in Los Angeles, will return with the two part 15 episode second season at AMC from April 11th with the characters boarding a ship to escape the zombies in the final episode of the first season.

'ME & MEAN MARGARET' SITCOM
Over at NBC they've ordered new multicamera sitcom ME & MEAN MARGARET from WILL & GRACE writer Adam Barr. An unlikely buddy comedy follows a fiercely candid and often offensive legendary actress and the ambitious 27-year-old lawyer forced to babysit her.
MATT CZUHRY RETURNS TO 'GILMORE GIRLS'
Meanwhile, it has been confirmed today that Matt Czuchry's Logan  will also return in the farewall season of GILMORE GIRLS which will be produced by Netflix in the form of four TV movies each set in different season. Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel, Scott Patterson and Kelly Bishop are all returning, while Melissa McCarthy said earlier this week she wasn't invited to return. As you remember Rory rejected Logan's marriage proposal in the series finale.

    1. it has only four or six episodes, can't remember :) You will probably binge watch it. But it ain't as good as WALKING DEAD. Has a really unappealing cast :(

  3. OK forget my earlier comment about Mr. Stevens looking like Charlie Hunnam. From that pic above, Charlie is WAY hotter. Seriously not even in the same league.

  4. I went ahead and signed up for hulu commercial free and it has Fear the Walking Dead on it. Right now it's in the queue behind my British detective shows.

    Oooh I finished the Last Kingdom and it was so sad. He lost his son, which broke me up. I kind of expected that, as an innocent would have to die in exchange for the life of Alfreds son.

    1. It is similar to THE WALKING DEAD only being set in the same world. But in quality and casting of much much lower quality. You might still like it, though, since it does have a slow suspense. I just wish the characters were more appealing.

      Not just son, but also both wives :( Poor Uthred. Hope he finds his sister in season two!

  5. Love Dougray Scott. But I don't do zombies...

    I wonder if Matt Czuchry's casting might be a spoiler...

    1. they say they will try to get all of Rory's exes in the final season :) The writer says she already has storylines written. I'd like for her to end up with Logan since he is the only one who understands her. Not that she deserves him.

  6. Dan is getting quite a bit of attention lately! No, he's not in the same league as Charlie, but he is quite easy on the eyes :)

    1. yep he is in a much much higher league :PPP Seriously, I don't know how you and Debs can compare a dashing educated posh and refined and yet warmly charismatic Danzie with that thug Hunnam who looks like drug addict?

    2. Because he is F-I-N-E and has the body of a God lol.

  8. I am going to be watching Fear the Walking Dead very soon. Looking forward to it as I am having withdrawal from the Walking Dead BTW I am with you Dez as I really can't get past Hunnam's bad acting.
