Tim Minchin to Join Californication’s Next Season

 

Source: Deadline

Australian musician-actor-comedian Tim Minchin has landed a major recurring role on the next season of Showtime’s dark comedy series Californication. He will play Atticus Fetch — Bowie, Bono and Lennon all rolled up into one charming yet mad-as-a-hatter rock star. He has been drafted to write the music for the Broadway musical, A Crazy Little Thing Called Love, which is based on the hit romantic comedy of the same name adapted from Hank Moody’s (David Duchovny) breakthrough novel God Hates Us All. Atticus tries to enlist Hank to pen the book for the musical, promising him that together they will turn it into a “rock opera” about “love conquering all.” The role is a case of art imitating life for Minchin, who wrote Matilda: The Musical, based on Roald Dahl’s novel, which has been staged in London’s West End and is coming to Broadway in 2014. He has toured in the UK (including at the O2), Australia (including at the Sydney Opera House) and in North America. Minchin also has done work as a stage actor.

CONFIRMED: ‘Unique’ Not Going Forward

Collaborative Source: TV Wise – Patrick Munn

As confirmed this morning by TV Wise, Chris Carter’s Unique won’t be moving forward as series. As described in the previous months, “Unique was (…) a mystery series which would have a heavy mythological component (a la The X-Files) and told the story of a woman who sets out to exact revenge on the people who murdered her husband, only to find herself drawn into a large global conspiracy.”

While projects that do not move forward to series on this current season can indeed be brought back for the next pilot seasons, as of this moment there’s no information indicating that we could expect this project being picked up in the future. Through the grapevine, sources point that Mr. Carter has been in development of other projects at Sony Pictures, yet we can’t confirm those projects just yet.

‘X-Files: The Musical’

It’s been awhile since the soothing sounds of The Colonel Mustard Amateur Attic Theatre Company filled our computer screens and earbuds with a musical version of The X-Files. For those who missed it or simply don’t know, last summer, the theater group put on two live performances of X-Files: The Musical

Now most of us weren’t able to make it all the way to Lincoln, Nebraska, but lucky for us, they streamed the play online. And if you couldn’t watch it or want to relive the magic again, you can do so at their YouTube page.

You’re guaranteed a good laugh because not even in the wildest of fanfics have Mulder and Scully broken out in song during an investigation. At least we hope so…
