Over a storied and celebrated career, actor Bruno Ganz has logged time with a handful of famed filmmakers including Eric Rohmer, Werner Herzog, Wim Wenders and more, and is perhaps best known for his roles in international hits like "Wings Of Desire" (directed by the latter) and "Downfall." And now, it looks like he's found another role that could gain him all kinds of attention thanks to nothing more than some good timing.

Last night, "Girls" closed out its second season with a rather lacklustre finale, and while "Game Of Thrones" is HBO's next big series out the gate, later this spring they'll be returning with more laughs. The second season of "Veep" will kick off in April, with a new trailer recently arriving, and then in May, Christopher Guest will make a long awaited return with "Family Tree." And the first teaser promises a lot of familiar faces from his usual collective...

"Girls" and "Enlightened" might be over for now, but we don't have too long to wait for another quality HBO sitcom to start up, as we're four weeks from the start of the second season of "Veep," the Emmy-award winning political comedy starring Julia-Louis-Dreyfus. Created by Armando Iannucci, the man behind "The Thick Of It," and "In The Loop," the first season might not have quite hit the peaks of brilliance of the earlier show and movie, but it's still one of the most consistent and enjoyable sitcoms on TV.

Recap: After An Adventurous Season 2, 'Girls' Finale Plays It Safe & Conventional

It has been a pretty adventurous second season for "Girls," and one has to look no further than the experimental, format-breaking mid-season episodes. The nearly standalone short film "One Man's Trash," the Staten Island-set "Boys" and Jessa one-off "Video Games" were all fascinating detours from the show's more traditional HBO comedy format, and often delivered bigger dramatic and emotional payoffs. But as the series wound down, the return to a more conventional approach has been less satisfying, and this weekend's finale is certainly a let down for anyone hoping that Lena Dunham might regularly be taking "Girls" into bolder waters structurally.

The last we heard about Steven Spielberg's potential Moses movie "Gods And Kings" was well over a year ago, when word circulated that he might be eyeing a start date this spring. But obviously, a lot of things have happened since then. The director's "Robopocalypse" started moving to follow "Lincoln" until he delayed it, essentially freeing up his summer, part of which he'll spend as the Cannes Film Festival as the jury president, while also looking over newly tasked director Colin Trevorrow's work on "Jurassic Park IV." And oh yeah, he's also developing Stanley Kubrick's lost "Napolean" project as a TV miniseries on top of the many other big and small screen efforts he has his hands in. And it appears that he won't be parting the Red Sea any more.

Karl Urban Minka Kelly JJ Abrams TV Robot Cops
We’ll never be able to comprehend just how he finds the time, but every week it sounds like we’re reading about another J.J Abrams project, so it's very easy to lose track of them all. One of his TV projects -- which formerly went by the title of “Inhuman,” but is now going simply by “Human” – is busy casting its pilot for Fox at the moment, and it looks like Karl Urban will be joining the already-cast Michael Ealy as one of the leads.

When considering a stay at the “Bates Motel,” it’s probably worth remembering that couple who were looking for a quiet night at the start of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show.” Judging by its Gothic ambiance and mentally unstable management, teased in a new 6-minute clip from the upcoming A&E drama, the place is just ripe for this brand of freakish escalation.
