It always seemed a bit like an odd fit when Colin Firth signed up to voice the beloved bear "Paddington," and it seems he finally realized too, dropping out of the project, which already has a November 28th release date and has released a couple of trailers. But at least as far as PR goes, everyone is totes cool with it.

2013 will close out nicely for Bob Odenkirk, with the actor saying farewell to "Breaking Bad" and soon to be seen in Alexander Payne's "Nebraska." And while he waits for things to get moving on that Saul Goodman spinoff, he's joining another TV show that is already getting all sorts of attention. FX's Coen Brothers produced "Fargo" series has finalized its cast with Odenkirk, Kate Walsh, Joey King and Oliver Platt joining Martin Freeman, Colin Hanks and Billy Bob Thornton in the show. Plot details thus far are being kept under wraps, but it's another "true crime" story with a Minnesota nice vibe. Production on the 10-episode series gets underway next month, and it will air in the spring.
