Sitcoms are a notoriously tricky beast to handle in terms of success, simply because if a show grows enormously in popularity and critical regard, so will the cast members who feature prominently in it, therefore leading to tempting offers for them from higher-profile projects. “How I Met Your Mother” is a sterling example of such a conflict, with a breakout cast including Jason Segel, Neil Patrick Harris, and Josh Radnor, who have established major careers outside of the show, but nevertheless CBS are still confidently pushing for a new season.

(Former) shock rocker (is he all that shocking anymore?) Marilyn Manson seems to be enjoying this whole acting thing. He's done bit parts here and there over the years ("Party Monster" and "Jawbreaker" among them), but it seems he's taking a bigger step toward movie roles. He already has a stint in Quentin Dupieux's "Wrong Cops" and how he's headed to cable. Brian Warner will stretch his wings playing himself in a guest spot on Showtime's "Californication" starring David Duchovny. Production on the series is now underway and you can see the longawaited Manson/Duchovny pairing in 2013 on the seventh season's seventh episode. [THR]

Tom Hiddleston Confirmed To Be Coming Back As LokiThat was quick. Just two days ago we were discussing the new frontrunners for the role that turns out to be SHIELD Agent Maria Hill, the sidekick for Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury character in Marvel's "The Avengers" film (for a second there we were thinking they'd turn this character into the Wasp). Names included Mary Elizabeth Winstead (”Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World”), “V” star Morena Baccarin (who also starred in 'Avengers' director Joss Whedon‘s “Firefly” and the film “Serenity”), Jessica Lucas (”Cloverfield”) and Cobie Smulders.

Well, that was fast. Last night Samuel L. Jackson hit "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" and confirmed that Nick Fury would be in both "Captain America: The First Avenger" and "Thor." He also dropped the bomb that tomorrow, he was going to be screentesting with actresses for some kind of companion role in the upcoming "The Avengers" telling Fallon, "I gotta screen test like five actresses on Friday. They have this new character that’s my sidekick or something, that’s with me all the time."
