    2011 Glyph Award Winners List - Recognizing Best In Comics Made By, For & About People Of Color

    I'll be honest and say that I'm not as familiar with the Glyph Awards or the East Coast Black Age of Comics Convention as I probably should be at this point. This is probably the first time we've ever mentioned either of them on Shadow And Act; and it certainly won't be the last.

    Shannon Elizabeth Joins 'American Reunion' Ensuring The Integrity Of The Continuity Is Maintained

    The responsibility weighing on the shoulders of ”Harold & Kumar” series creators Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg is immense. Tasked with writing and directing "American Reunion," the pressure of making a sequel that can match and possibly even better what we thought was the franchise closer, "American Pie: The Wedding," is something we can't even fathom.

    Virginia Madsen Steps In For Annette Bening In Rob Reiner's 'Summer At Dog Dave's'

    Kenan Thompson Also JoinsIt seems that even before it has started lensing, the next effort from the inconsistent Rob Reiner is already trading down. First announced as "The Third Act," the title is now "Summer At Dog Dave's," which sounds like a wacky made-for-Nickelodeon movie that we would never w...

    Peter Jackson Confirms Orlando Bloom's Return As Legolas In 'The Hobbit'

    While this was largely expected to happen, the last time we heard from Orlando Bloom about his possible (inevitable) reprisal of Legolas in "The Hobbit," the actor played it safe. During the press rounds for "Sympathy For Delicious" Bloom told us, “My fingers and toes are crossed, but, yes, I’ll be ...
