While he might be name-checked as often as someone like John Goodman, Billy Bob Thornton is certainly in the realm of Coen Brothers players. He bagged roles in "The Man Who Wasn't There" and "Intolerable Cruelty," and also starred in the Coen-produced "Bad Santa" but it has been a decade since they've worked together. But now they're aligning on a project that's certain to raise a few eyebrows.

After five years as one of the most acclaimed dramas on television, on August 11th "Breaking Bad" will return for the first in its final batch of eight episodes. To celebrate the occasion creator Vince Gilligan and the cast have been taking one last victory lap to connect with the fans who helped to keep the show on the air despite modest ratings. In NYC this week alone, Film Linc is doing a week long marathon of every season of the show (topped off with special cast Q&As for their favorite episodes), Gilligan sat for an extended Q&A at the Museum of the Moving Image (which has also just opened an exhibit of props and artifacts from the show titled "From Mr. Chips To Scarface: Walter White's Transformation In Breaking Bad" which will run through October) and Gilligan and some of the cast stopped by the Apple Store in Soho before Gilligan and the entire principal cast (Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, Anna Gunn, Dean Norris, Betsy Brandt, R.J. Mitte, Bob Odenkirk) landed at the Times Center last night for an extended conversation with NY Times columnist Dave Itzkoff.

Deadline reports that the two creative partners are developing another comedy series for the network, described as their “look at high school.” The final season of “Eastbound & Down” arrives in September, just in time for the MLB playoffs.

It might seem like "Breaking Bad" is only thing coming up on TV worth caring about but for many the return of "Homeland" for its third season is yet another good reason to stay in this fall. The acclaimed show is riding high at the moment, with 8 Emmy nominations for its second season, following four wins for its first season including Best Drama, Best Actress, Best Actor and Best Writing. Not too shabby, but can they keep it up?

So there's less than two weeks to go until the final season of "Breaking Bad" kicks off and every Monday at the office will be spent dissecting the final movements of Walter, Jesse and everyone else. Details have kept tightly under lock and key but pretty soon the show will be the only thing anyone can talk about. Perhaps speaking to the absurd levels of secrecy around the show, the first reviews, which have landed today, contain exactly zero plot points and read with something of a Kafkaesque obliqueness, so it winds up being a recap of the last season. But we'll get to that in a second...

Hillary Clinton Diane Lane
It looks like Hollywood isn't just obsessed with Lance Armstrong for biopic material. While the cyclist is currently the subject of at least three developing feature films and one documentary, you can you now add Hillary Clinton to the multiple project list. Earlier this year, news broke that "Smashed" and "The Spectacular Now" director James Ponsoldt was going to direct "Rodham," from a Black List finalist script. And while the hunt for the lead actress to continues—names like Jessica Chastain, Carey Mulligan, Scarlett Johansson, Amanda Seyfried and Reese Witherspoon were all rumored/wishlisted—it looks like NBC is moving forward with their own movie on Clinton, complete with an actress attached.
