Jamie Foxx, Mike Tyson
For those with a good memory, Jamie Foxx playing Mike Tyson is way old news. "I've reached out to Mike, and I've been open about it," Foxx told MTV back in 2009. "I think that, of all the biopics that are out there, he has the most interesting story that no one has ever heard." The idea back then was that Taylor Hackford, who directed Foxx to his first Oscar win in 2005 for "Ray," would also helm the project. And as Hollywood is wont to do, there hasn’t really been much a peep since.

Boardwalk Empire, Season 4, Farewell Daddy
“The trick is to stay alive long enough to cash out.” Said by Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi), you can bet that sentiment’s going to drive the final season of HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire” to its conclusion. Well, that and the inevitable tag line “all empires fall.” Yep, it’s all coming to an end and it’s likely not going to be pretty. But when is the right time to “cash out” and will that be the undoing of all these greedy and money-obsessed kingpins? As showrunner and creator Terence Winter (“The Wolf Of Wall Street” screenwriter) told us last year, “That’s a big theme of the show, the whole idea of when is enough, enough?”

When we spoke to "Boardwalk Empire" showrunner and head writer Terence Winter last year, the series creator was hoping to change the paradigm of his HBO show. Season four concluded much more adrift than previous seasons, with the fates of several characters up in the air. It wasn't exactly a cliffhanger per se, but very open-ended as to what would happen.

Though “Boardwalk Empire” has only one season left in the tank, hopefully, fans of the show can find solace in the fact that the Martin Scorsese/Terence Winter rock ‘n’ roll pilot for HBO is still moving forward. Olivia Wilde and Juno Temple have most recently joined the cast as the pilot is set to begin production this summer.

Boardwalk Empire, Season 4, Farewell Daddy
Was he playing it close to the vest, did slow ratings just catch up with the show, or did creative discussions yield a different approach? I interviewed “Boardwalk Empire” creator/head writer Terence Winter at the end of the fourth season late last year, and when I asked him if there was an end in sight for the show, he was fairly adamant that there were no plans to conclude the drama any time soon.
