While Thomas Jane is best known for -- and usually relegated to -- roles that play on his physique and his overt whiff of testosterone, he's somewhat underrated. As anyone who watched HBO's excellent, funny and sadly cancelled "Hung" knows, Jane's man-meat persona was put to good use playing a gigolo in economically-ravaged Detroit, trying to make ends meet for his ex-wife and kids. He was great in the role, showing both the raw sexuality he can project and a tender, softer side as well. All this to say the dude has more range than you might expect, but then again, if you just want him to knock some heads, he can do that too.

Emma Stone is about to be launched into the stratosphere this summer. The actress who worked her way up the ladder with considerable charm in a string of films ("Superbad," "Easy A," "Stupid Crazy Love," "The Help") features in her first franchise in "The Amazing Spider-Man." Then later this fall, she'll go all femme fatale alongside the macho cast of "Gangster Squad." But lest you think she doesn't have time to have fun anymore, you'd be mistaken.

Earlier this year, Lionsgate bought Summit for big pile of money, and the question more savvy business types began asking was: "Why?" Granted, the indie studio was successful, largely due in part to the "Twilight" franchise, but it remained to be seen how Lionsgate would exploit the rest of their catalog to make the purchase worth the price. Well, now there appears to be some insight into their approach.

TV shows based on films are nothing new, and although many are cynical cash grabs that disappear after a few seasons, a few have transcended their material and become great shows in their own right (see: "M*A*S*H*"). But that ratio hasn't stopped Hollywood from continuing to try, and with shows coming up based on "The Transporter," "Taken" and "The Kids Are All Right" you can now throw one more onto the pile.

To say we're excited for Aaron Sorkin's return to television with "The Newsroom" would be an understatement. Having been fans of all his previous small screen ventures -- "Sports Night," "The West Wing" and even "Studio 60 On The Sunset Strip" -- we can't wait to see what he cooks up here.

When "Pan Am" first aired it looked like ABC might have a hit on their hands. The premiere (which cost $10m) was watched by 11 million viewers, the promos all looked (aesthetically at least) very appealing, while the reviews were cautiously positive and also expressed optimism for what the show had the potential to become. It also didn’t hurt that it arrived at the same time as NBC’s “The Playboy Club” – to which it bore a stylistic similarity – and seemed fantastic by comparison. But by the time the penultimate episode of the season aired the viewership had dropped to just over 2.5 million with a 0.7 demo rating, and by that point the writing was on the wall.

The Power Of Christ Compels 'Martha Marcy' Director Sean Durkin To Remake 'The Exorcist' As 10-Part TV Series

If there has been one constant in "The Exorcist" franchise, it's that none of the sequels or prequels have ever come close to touching the terror or brilliance of William Friedkin's groundbreaking original. Nor have any of the countless exorcism movies since managed the feat either. But that isn't stopping another bite at the apple, as "The Exorcist" (recently named as the greatest horror movie ever by Time Out) is now getting prepped for the small screen in an expansive remake/prequel that will stretch out the terror over ten episodes.

Whether you're a sports nut or not, some of the finest documentaries of the past few years have been found on ESPN's "30 For 30" series. Kicking off in October 2009 and ending in December 2010 (which about a dozen more films added in 2011), the endeavor gave feature filmmakers creative control to helm docs about any sports subject that they were interested in, and the tactic resulted in some very strong work. Some of the highlights that premiered on the channel included "The Two Escobars" by Jeff and Michael Zimbalist; "Catching Hell" by Alex Gibney; "Winning Time: Reggie Miller vs. The New York Knicks" by Dan Klores and much more. In short, the series has spawned some utterly fascinating stories, and the good news is, there's more on the way.
