What We Did On Our Holiday
Over a decade on from playing a Bond girl, British actress Rosamund Pike is about to enter a whole new act of her career. Hot off acclaimed recent roles in the likes of "An Education" and "The World's End," Pike landed one of the most hotly sought-after parts around: the female lead in David Fincher's adaptation of best-selling thriller "Gone Girl," opposite Ben Affleck. It's easily the most high profile gig she's ever had and stands a good chance of attracting awards attention and vaulting her to a new level of stardom.

Review: 'Doctor Who: Day Of The Doctor' Is A Fitting & Hugely Enjoyable 50th Anniversary Tribute

Writing for a pop culture institution like long-running British sci-fi series "Doctor Who," you're bound to feel a certain degree of pressure. Generations of children (of any age) have grown up on the series, it's now bigger than ever, with a growing audience in the U.S, and capable of making headlines at home and abroad. But to write a special episode to mark the 50th anniversary of the series (making it by far the longest running science fiction show in the world)—one that would be broadcast simultaneously around the globe (including special 3D screenings in movie theaters), one that would satisfy fans both new and old, casual and hardcore, and one that would justify the acres of hype that have led up to the screening last night—requires even more delicacy.

Since actor David Tennant stepped away from the dimension-jumping tendencies of “Doctor Who,” you might assume those sorts of existential dilemmas had come to an end, especially since he'd taken a role in the BBC's police procedural “Broadchurch.” Well, after a massively successful first series run in the UK and on BBC America, it seems just the opposite, as the actor has agreed to next play two separate versions of the same character.

Former "Doctor Who" star David Tennant will return to the small screen starring in eight-part drama "Broadchurch" alongside Olivia Colman and Vicky McClure. The story centers on the media circus that descends on a small coastal community after the murder of a young boy. The project is being produced by Kudos Film & Television who are responsible for programs such as "Life On Mars," and "Law And Order: UK." "Broadchurch" will begin shooting in mid-August and later air on BBC Four. [Deadline]

Angela Bassett is the latest to join "Olympus Has Fallen," Millenium Entertainment's rival to Sony's "White House Down." Set to be directed by Antoine Fuqua, the premise is pretty much the same: White House + terrorists/bad guys = hero saves the day. In this case, it's Gerard Butler with Aaron Eckhart along for the ride as POTUS. Basset will play Secret Service director Lynne Jacobs.

Let's fave it, "The Office" hasn't been the same since Steve Carell left the show and frankly, it was already on the decline during his last season. James Spader was kind of wasted as the new David Wallace (of sorts) and Ed Helms' position as the new office manager was constantly undermined by tepid writing and a recycling of plotlines and running themes from previous seasons. So perhaps it's no surprise NBC may want to start over. With contracts up at the end of the season for Helms, John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer and B.J. Novak and not yet renewed, executive producer Greg Daniels is pitching a reboot of the show that would keep some key cast members, but essentially start fresh. Hmm. Remember how well that worked out for ABC and "Scrubs"?

Few thought that when Beastie Boy Adam Yauch set up distribution label Oscilloscope Laboratories to put out his 2008 directorial debut "Gunning For That #1 Spot," it would turn out to be anything other than a vanity side-project. But in fact, the company has evolved over the past four years to become one of the most forward-thinking indie distributors around, having released films like "Dear Zachary," "Wendy And Lucy," "Treeless Mountain," "The Exploding Girl," "Howl," "The Unloved," "We Need To Talk About Kevin," "Bellflower," "The Messenger," "Exit Through The Gift Shop" and "If A Tree Falls," the latter three all turning out to win Oscar nominations for their trouble.
