Hulk REBOOT!

  • 33comments

... Sure, since we're already redoing every single other property out there, let's reboot The Hulk as well. ABC is giving the green guy another spin with a new series, but details aren't out in the open yet. Also in talks to be adapted for TV is Marvel's Cloak and Dagger. Let's hear it: Who should play the Hulk? I say that wheelchair kid from Glee. [THR]

... No Ordinary Family just got a boost of confidence, as ABC has ordered four additional scripts for the freshman family superhero drama comedy (or whatever it is). This isn't quite a full-season pickup, but it's a good sign, as ordering additional scripts usually precedes a pickup. [Variety]

... Also getting more script orders are Life Unexpected (two), Brothers & Sisters (four), and the yet-to-be-aired Shonda Rhimes medical drama Off the Map (one). [The Live Feed]

... Former Prison Break star Wentworth Miller might be filling the loin cloth of cancer-stricken Andy Whitfield on the Starz series Spartacus: Blood and Sand. Whitfield had to drop out of the show after doctors advised him to rest up. Miller was last seen about twice his previous size, so he'll have a bit of lifting in the yard to do. [EW]

... ABC Family's saucy Pretty Little Liars has added Lindsay Shaw to its cast for a guest stint. Shaw, from 10 Things I Hate About You and my sorta favorite comedy of all time Aliens in America, will play a member of Emily's swim team for two episodes. [MTV]

... The Gates star Frank Grillo tweeted that he didn't think his show was coming back for a second season, which surprised me because I figured the show was canceled already. [Digital Spy]

... And finally, the news you have been waiting for... the first guests for CBS' The View rip-off The Talk have been announced! Yay! Expect Christie Brinkley, Jennifer Lopez, Melissa Rycroft, Jamie Lee Curtis, and some other broads to do the yakkety yak. [THR]
