Hannibal Stars Are Released From Their Contracts
As Gaumont International Television and creator Bryan Fuller attempt to find a new home for recently cancelled cult TV show, Deadline reports that the show’s stars Mads Mikkelsen and Hugh Dancy have been let out of their contracts. The biggest challenge it seems in finding a new home is showrunner Fuller’s commitments to Starz’s upcoming adaptation. Fuller told Deadline, “The question would be for the potential new distribution partner is how comfortable they are in waiting. Because I do have an obligation to American Gods and a passion for American Gods, so I absolutely want to service that in the way that it needs to be serviced.”
The internet is truly the gift that keeps on giving. As Stephen Colbert prepares to leave The Colbert Report (he starts his new gig hosting the Late Show on Sept. 8), a video has appeared on the show’s YouTube channel of Colbert hosting a public access show in Michigan entitled Only In Monroe. In the 41-minute video, Colbert reads the local news, interviews a former Miss America, and spends twenty minutes with Eminem aka Marshall Mathers, giving the rapper financial advice and quizzing him on Bob Seger, among other delightfully bizarre bits.
