To start us off, here are a few casting announcements:

United States of Tara/Big Fan’s Patton Oswalt is joining Battlestar Galactica’s spin-off Caprica in a recurring role. He should play Baxter Sarno, a Caprican comedian. He also has this talk-show where the two of the main characters appear (Daniel and Amanda Graystone).

Alias’ David Anders is back on TV finally (not counting Heroes).
He is indeed joining 24’s 8th season cast next to all the other new peeps like Katee Sackhoff, Freddie Prinze Jr., Callum Keith Rennie and Anil Kapoor.

Lionsgate meanwhile just bought US rights to Matthew Vaughn’s Kick-Ass for a 2010 release.

There’s also gonna be yet another DC/Vertigo property is heading to TV.
A live-action drama adaptation of Midnight, Mass has received a script commitment
The potential show is being written by Mercy’s showrunners, Gretchen Berg and Aaron Harberts
a sexy globe-trotting couple (Adam and Julia Kadmons) solving crimes and mysteries of the supernatural throughout the world.
So it’s like Mr. and Mrs. Smith meets Supernatural?

And finally, A Nightmare on Elm Street reboot scribe Wesley Strick is set to write the pilot for a(nother) potential HBO series based off Andrew Logg Oldham’s memoirs (Stoned and 2Stoned). The guys was the former Rolling Stones producer and manager.
