    Michael Peña To Partner Up With Jake Gyllenhaal In Cop Thriller 'End Of Watch'

    Michael Peña is one of those great character actors whose always just short of finding the project to break him into larger roles. He's been slogging it out in films like "World Trade Center," "Observe and Report," "Lions For Lambs," "The Lucky Ones," "My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done," "Shooter" -- all stuff that was probably great on paper but just didn't translate onto the big screen. Even this year, he's appeared in "World Invasion: Battle Los Angeles" -- savaged by critics -- and "The Lincoln Lawyer," mostly noted for not being terrible and being the rare movie in which Matthew McConaughey keeps his shirt on. He's got a few more movies ...

    'Fringe' Writers Monica Owusu-Breen & Alison Schapker Rewriting Secret J.J. Abrams Project 'Zanbato'

    Have you been watching Fox's J.J. Abrams-produced sci-fi drama "Fringe?" The show's position in the so-called "Friday night death slot," and its subsequent ratings plunge (ratings which were not that high to begin with), suggest that you're not.
