Rumors have been quiet recently surrounding "Star Wars: Episode 7," but once the press gauntlet begins soon for "Star Trek Into Darkness," and J.J. Abrams gets inevitably grilled about his plans, we'll have plenty more updates. But until then, leave it to Patton Oswalt -- who, as fans know, is a man who knows his way around the "Star Wars" universe -- to awesomely and hilariously weigh in on 'Episode 7' with a nearly genius, 8-minute-long outtake from "Parks and Recreation."

Remember a few weeks ago when we broke down the various projects Quentin Tarantino has flirted with in the past? Well, you can take one of them off the list of possible future endeavours, as a British television production company has beaten Tarantino to the punch.

A few months ago there were rumors that another season of "Twin Peaks" might be on the table, although they were quickly nixed. Having said that, they did get an awful lot of people excited while there still seemed to be some potential there. You could argue that excitement was purely about the cult show, but for many it would have been motivated by the potential return of David Lynch to the small screen (and at this point, we take his return anywhere).

Jamie Foxx Wants To Scare With A Syfy Horror Series He'll Produce, Write & Direct

Perhaps the best advice any actor can receive is to diversity and Jamie Foxx -- who first became known for his comedy -- seems to be taking that to heart. Before "Django Unchained," he starred in the hit comedy "Horrible Bosses" (sequel on the way) before stepping into Quentin Tarantino's movie, and he'll next play the President in "White House Down," Electro in "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" and also do a voice role in "Rio 2." And how, he's dipping his toes into a wholly new genre -- well, actually, he's throwing his whole body in the pool....

Bananas and ice cream sandwiches -- if you're a fan of "Arrested Development" you already know what those things mean to show, and if you don't, you should be catching up on all three seasons right now before the batch of new episodes hit Netflix next month. All this to say, there are three new posters for the upcoming not-really-a-season, and with both Jason Bateman and David Cross currently on the interview rounds for their respective indies ("Disconnect" and "It's A Disaster"), the inevitable question about the potential movie keeps rearing its head.

'Breaking Bad' Saul Goodman Spinoff Becomes A Bit More Real As AMC Starts Kicking The Tires

Shed a tear and light a candle (or whatever it is that you do when you lose something) -- there are only eight episodes of "Breaking Bad" to go. The cherished series draws to an end this summer and Walter White and Jesse Pinkman will find their fates decided. But that world may not be closed entirely. Last summer, "Breaking Bad" creator Vince Gilligan said, “I would love to see a Saul Goodman spinoff. I can’t say that it is genuinely in the works at this moment, but certainly Bob Odenkirk and I have talked about it a little bit.” And while he remained cautious about it happening, it's not so farfetched...

Trend alert!? Are we headed for full blown prequel-itis on TV? With NBC experiencing a nearly-there hit with the actually pretty decent "Hannibal" (they're going to rerun the pilot this Wednesday night, before airing the second episode on Thursday), A&E has already gone ahead and declared "Bates Motel" a winner.

Even though the result of their first collaboration, "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone," wasn't so incredible, it seems the unlikely pairing of gritty character actor James Gandolfini and comic lead Steve Carell will continue beyond the magician comedy. Last fall, it was reported the duo were putting together a paleontology comedy (they really seem to love the high concepts). That project has now found a home, and a few plot details have surfaced.

Behind The Candelabra, Michael Douglas
Steven Soderbergh has never been one to resist a challenge (ie. a 12-hour adaptation of John Barth's "The Sot-Weed Factor"), and certainly, his long-developing biopic of Liberace, "Behind the Candelabra," faced its fair share of resistance. The director has been up front about major studios turning down the movie for being "too gay," but it seems it's going to be their loss. HBO has dropped a brand new trailer for the movie and it looks nothing short of great.
