New Articles: Odin, “MIB,” JJ and “Glee”



These are my latest posts for AOL at Inside TV and Inside Movies. Please feel free to click over and read these posts in their entirety.

Story continues below.

The first post is on the latest casting of Sir Anthony Hopkins:

The Norse god of thunder, Thor, may be thunderous — but is he any kind of match for his father?

Oscar-winner Sir Anthony Hopkins has signed to play patriarch Odin, father of Thor and hard-line ruler of the mythical Asgard, in the upcoming Kenneth Branagh-directed feature ‘Thor.’

The second post is the mystery around “Men in Black 3”:

Now that Columbia Pictures has green-lit ‘Men in Black 3’ — the first new installment in the sci-fi comedy franchise since 2002 — the question is whether Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones will be lured into a reprise of their roles as Agents J and K.

The third post is what J.J. Abrams isn’t planning to do:

If it’s a spousal role, apparently January Jones knows how to say “I do.” The actress, who plays wife and mom on TV’s ‘Mad Men’ and plays yet another wife in the soon-to-open film ‘Pirate Radio,’ has signed on to two new films — both thrillers, both playing wives.

The fourth post is a little factoid about “Glee”:

It goes on and on and on and on: The buoyant, jubilant cover of Journey’s ’80s hit ‘Don’t Stop Believin’,’ performed by the cast of Fox’s monster-hit-in-training ‘Glee,’ is now certified gold, topping more than 500,000 downloads.
