Check out the second trailer for Garry Marshall’s “Valentine’s Day”. You can also see the teaser trailer here.
For more information on the movie, visit the “Valentine’s Day” official website.
One of my all-time favorite TV shows is “Alias”. “Alias” was created by J.J. Abrams and it began in 2001 and ran for 5 seasons. If you like “Lost” and “Fringe”, I think you would appreciate Abrams creative vision in this series. All five season of “Alias” are on DVD, so if you haven’t watched the show before…definitely check it out. You’ll totally be hooked! 🙂
Even though the show is over, the former cast of “Alias” have certainly flourished in their careers. Jennifer Garner has a growing film career and she has her own production company. Michael Vartan is on the TNT show “Hawthorne”. Greg Grunberg is on NBC’s “Heroes”, and Bradley Cooper is having a breakout year with his recent summer hit “The Hangover” and many upcoming movies on the way.
Thus I created a new category on my blog called the “Alias Alumni Watch” so whenever a former cast member has something new or noteworthy – you will be able to view all posts with “Alias” references in this new blog category. Keep and eye out for updates made in the “Alias Alumni Watch” category in order to stay up-to-date with your former “Alias” cast members’ careers!
Jennifer Garner and ABC will be teaming up again but not in the way “Alias” fans would hope, but still good news nonetheless! Former “Alias” star Jennifer Garner has signed a deal with ABC to develop shows for the network under her production company Vandalia Films.
Very exciting news! I’m interested in what sort of shows Garner’s production company will develop for ABC. Perhaps an Alias-esque show or a possible reunion of the Alias cast? One can only hope!

Ryan Reynolds has been cast as the Green Lantern. Read the full post here.
The latest comic book to movie adaptation looks to be the “Green Lantern”. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. have three front-runners in mind. They are Bradley Cooper (“The Hangover”), Ryan Reynolds (“X-Men Origins: Wolverine”), and Justin Timberlake. Other candidates mentioned include Henry Cavill (“The Tudors”) and Jared Leto.
Interesting choices for the Green Lantern. Upon first glance, I would say Ryan Reynolds would look the part but considering he will be starring in the X-Men Origins spin off Deadpool – there could be some filming conflicts. In my opinion, Bradley Cooper has really emerged as a rising star in Hollywood within the past few years. His latest movie, “The Hangover”, has already grossed $210 million domestically and a sequel is already in the works according to this Variety article. I believe Cooper’s breakout role was on the ABC show “Alias” starring Jennifer Garner. “Alias” is one of my all-time favorite shows and I’m glad that the show’s alumni have really done well after the show ended in 2006. As far as Justin Timberlake, I don’t know if I see him as a super hero. I can understand the commercial appeal of choosing him, Timberlake has starred in some dramas (i.e. “Alpha Dog”) and comedies (i.e. “The Love Guru”), but I don’t know if he’s a fit for the role. On the other hand, I can totally picture Henry Cavill as the Green Lantern. Cavill has been linked to many super hero roles including Superman before Brandon Routh was ultimately chosen for “Superman Returns”. Stephenie Meyer, author of the “Twilight” book series, mentioned on her official website that Cavill was part of her dream cast before Robert Pattinson was cast as Edward Cullen for the movie. Cavill is currently starring as Charles Brandon, on the TV series “The Tudors”.
As with all the other super hero franchises, you need someone that can carry a franchise (i.e. sequels, merchandising, etc.) so my vote goes toward Henry Cavill! What do you think?
