Wednesday Link-A-Mania

Christopher Lee returns to Middle-earth; Sarah Connor travels to Mega City One; Fringe will get freakier; and more…

Bit of a whistle-stop round-up today… normal service will be resumed…

Torchwood: Miracle Day
According to TVLine ’s Mike Ausiello, “Captain Jack’s own immortality will figure into the plot in a big way.”

Rosenbaum To Return To Smallville
And in the same column Ausiello reckons that the Smallville producers are, “at the very least cautiously optimistic that the very busy Michael Rosenbaum will be back.”

Fringe Will Create Freaky Fridays
And staying with TVLine yet again, the site reports JJ Abrams as saying that Fringe ’s move to a Friday night slot in the US will result in the show becoming even freakier. “When we made the move and [executive producers] Joe [Chappelle] and Jeff [Pinker] started pitching stuff, we thought, ‘Well, this will probably get a little pushback. But they [at Fox] were like, ‘Okay, sounds good!… They have been amazingly and gloriously lenient in what were able to do. It feels like unbridled, unhinged Fringe .”

New Chuck Chick
Swapping to a different TV gossip column now, TV Guide ’s Mega Buzz reveals a new character coming to Chuck : “The show is casting a major recurring guest star, a sophisticated Oxford socialite whose father is a criminal mastermind.”

Cowboys And Aliens Trailer For Superbowl
Director Jon Favreau has confirmed on Twitter that there will be a brand spanking new trailer for Cowboys And Aliens ready to air during the US Superbowl on 6 February.

Sarah Connor For Dredd ?
Although strictly unofficial at the moment, Judge Dredd Movie News reckons that Sarah Connor Chronicles star Lena Headey has been cast as the main villain and gang-leader, Madeline Madrigal in Dredd . Hang on, isn’t that a character from Harry Potter ?
