Dear Gossips,

Coming soon to television: Keanu Reeves.

As reported by Deadline yesterday, he’ll be starring in and producing a series called Rain based on Barry Eisler’s books. John Rain is an assassin whose murders are set up to look like natural cause. He’s an international man of mystery and a lonely loner. Oh, but aren’t they all?

Professionally, this is the right move. Keanu seems to know about playing his position. And, happily, he’s playing it without having to resort to joining The Expendables. You know, I still can’t breathe when Speed is on TV and I’m watching him stare intently forward out of the front window of the bus.  Read Full Intro

Watching Teenagers in your Thirties

It’s not a fair fight. It isn’t.  Because they start playing Bell Biv Devoe’s Poison before you even have a chance to form an opinion on whether you want to watch the movie or not. The fact is we shouldn’t, really. A movie about the behind-the-scenes of Saved By The Bell – starring teenage actors as teenage actors – is not exactly going to change our world. Full Story

Unless he pulls a Mel Gibson in the next week, Matthew McConaughey is going to win the Emmy for True Detective on August 25. That means he’ll hold the Oscar and the Emmy in the same year. And it brings him half way to EGOT. Could he? A Time To Kill was on last night. Jacek and I stayed up late to watch it because he’d never seen it, never heard McConaughey deliver the closing summation and that line, that disturbingly powerful line: “Now imagine she’s white”. Full Story

FX has released a trailer for the final season of Sons Of Anarchy premiering on September 9. Still deciding whether or not to recap it. Thoughts? The club is the only thing Jax has left now. And the desire for revenge. Oh…and his psychopath of a mother, played by Katey Sagal, perhaps the most underappreciated character in television. Full Story

Since… the great escape. I mean she’s done some press for makeup here and there, but The Giver is her first major acting project since the divorce. She made the rounds today in New York, first on The Today Show and also on Sirius Radio. Soundbites? Come on, now. It’s Katie Holmes. Full Story

Mrs Timberlake continued to work on New Girl yesterday. As mentioned, she’s guest-starring in an upcoming episode as the “hottest scientist in the world”. Check her out leaving set yesterday, presumably in her own clothes, but also similar to Zooey Deschanel’s wardrobe. Am also attaching shots of Zooey Deschanel in costume with Jake Johnson. Full Story

Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson were photographed walking around NYC yesterday. Cute dress. Would be cuter if the top was smocked. Smocking is forgiving. That said, she wouldn’t need it. You know, these two have been together since 2006. That’s 8 years now. Almost a decade. I didn’t realise, did you? If someone were to ask me off-hand how long, I’d probably answer off the top of my head, maybe 3 or 4 years? 5 tops? It works for them. Full Story

Elisabeth Moss has been making some solid career choices outside of Mad Men in advance of the series finale. Her performance in Jane Campion’s Top Of The Lake was widely acclaimed. Her new film The One I Love, in theatres this month, is receiving decent reviews. And now it’s being reported that she’s being considered for season 2 of True Detective, alongside Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn. Full Story

Check out my #1, Oscar Isaac, at an event in New York earlier this week. Oscar’s been working on Star Wars VII. Before that he was shooting A Most Violent Year, scheduled for release in November, with some talk of possible award season inclusion. Yesterday it was announced that Oscar will star in the upcoming HBO miniseries Show Me A Hero based on the true story of Nick Wasicsko who was, in the late 80s, then the youngest mayor in America. Full Story

Guys…what’s the problem? Seriously. Yesterday there was an announcement about Allison Williams playing Peter Pan in NBC’s live staging of the musical (you remember ‘The Sound of Music’ last year, right?) and immediately there was a massive storm on Twitter and the mainstream media was picking it up and the more I looked, the more my early suspicions were confirmed – it was about nothing. Full Story

Lea Michele continues to work on Sons Of Anarchy. Here she is shooting a scene with Katey Sagal yesterday. As I wrote earlier this week, with the imminent conclusion of Glee, Lea’s professional strategy seems to be an image change. This is not Rachel Berry hanging out with Gemma Teller Morrow. Full Story

THR reported yesterday that Mrs Timberlake has signed on to guest-star in an episode of New Girl next season. She’ll play a girl called Kat, described as “the hottest scientist in the world”, who’s an obstacle to Zooey Deschanel’s character when they’re all at a wedding trying to hook up. Full Story

No, it’s not for Better Call Saul (but can I just say this is looking more and more promising every day?), it’s for a new Netflix animated series for grown-ups, BoJack Horseman. Aaron is an executive producer, along with Will Arnett. Full Story
