Lucy Lawless addressed rumours of a ‘Xena: Warrior Princess’ reboot and it’s not good news…
We were all so excited when it was reported a Xena: Warrior Princess reboot was in the works. Sadly, the star of the original series, Lucy Lawless, has since debunked the rumours so it doesn’t look like we’ll see everyone’s favourite 90s female superhero (Ok, except Buffy) back on our screens anytime soon.

Lucy Lawless says it's just a rumour, but we can dream.
So, rumours are circulating that a modern reboot of the 90s cult show 'Xena: Warrior Princess' is set to hit screens in the near future. It would be great to see Lucy Lawless back in that badass leather corset but, chances are, if it does ever return, it's likely to have a new wearer. But who should it be?
In a world where feminism has become re-invigorated and strong female role models are being taken seriously in movies and on the small screen, it seems only right that 'Xena: Warrior Princess' be brought back as part of this phenomenon. According to The Hollywood Reporter, original executive producers Rob Tapert and Sam Raimi are involved in her resurrection (literally) with the series suggested to arrive in 2016 and take on a kind of Katniss Everdeen in 'The Hunger Games' angle. Original star Lucy Lawless is keen to crush our dreams, though, telling Twitter, 'Sorry, friends! news of a #Xena reboot is just a rumor. I'd love it to happen one day but it's still in the wishful thinking stage', but it still got us thinking about who we'd like to see in the role if it ever did come back.

A Xena: Warrior Princess reboot is in the works!
The 1990s cult television series, Xena: Warrior Princess, may be back on our screens fairly soon. A reboot is reportedly in the works as NBC and NBC Universal are already preparing for a new series. The reboot is in the very early stages, reports suggest, and a search for a writer is ongoing. It's uncertain if the show's original star, New Zealand actress Lucy Lawless, will be returning to the show in her role as Xena or if a new actress will start Xena's adventures all over again for a new audience.

'Agents of SHIELD' has added three new cast members.
We were expecting some Agents of SHIELD casting news from San Diego Comic Con and Marvel didn't disappoint, announcing three new actors for season two on Saturday. Most notably, they confirmed the worst kept secret in TV - that Lucy Lawless will be joining the show.
Agents of SHIELD was a big hit for ABC
The actress will play Isabelle Hartley, a long-time SHIELD veteran who's tough and known to brandish a knife. As Slash Film notes, Hartley doesn't appear to have previously appeared in Marvel comics and her name is not in the Marvel comics database. In other words - she's a new character.

Eddie Cibrian was considered a rising star in Hollywood and despite his consistent work, the quality roles are yet to come in.
When Leann Rimes and Eddie Cibrian fell in love on the set of Northern Lights, things were already looking a little bleak for the American actor. Here was a guy with the looks of a genuine Hollywood leading star - a guy who had served his time on U.S. television (Sunset Beach), like many A-listers before him, George Clooney, Kevin Bacon, etc. So why has Cibrian - who turned 40 last week - lost his way in the tangled world of Hollywood?

In 2006, Cibrian joined the cast of Fox show Vanished midway through the series. The show focused on the disappearance of the wife of a Georgia senator, which is revealed as being part of a wider conspiracy. The family of the missing woman, a pair of FBI agents and a journalist are drawn into the ever-evolving mystery - sounds alright doesn't it? Well, it wasn't. And it was cancelled after nine of the thirteen episodes. Yep, that means Fox deemed it wasn't even worth revealing where the wife of the Georgian senator ended up.
Lucy Lawless, the star of Xena, Warrior Princess has been sentenced today (February 7) for illegally boarding the Noble Discoverer ship to protest drilling in the Arctic.
The actress got away relatively easy though, not having to serve any jail time, and with all of the publicity now attracted to her cause, it may have even been worth it. Each of the protesters, who boarded the ship, has been sentenced to 120 hours of community service, in addition to paying $651.44 in reparations to the Port of Taranaki, where they boarded the ship. Not a bad deal, considering all the media coverage the case has been getting.
According to the Washington Post, Lawless is very happy with the result herself, saying: “I consider it a great victory that the court has struck down the reparation demand from Shell, which I think was absolutely ludicrous.”
But the other part of Sandler's "oeuvre" consists of movies like Spanglish and Punch-Drunk Love -- odd hybrids of broad humor and quirk -- and toned-down, frothy mainstream comedies like Click and Bedtime Stories. It would be unfair to accuse Sandler of selling out his artistic vision in these films -- not only because Little Nicky wasn't art, but because the non-manic goofiness of Bedtime Stories may be closer to the real Sandler. And with some script consulting help, someday the real Sandler might make a really good film. Bedtime Stories isn't it, but at least it's mostly aimed in the right direction.

Starring a bunch of nobodies, leavened with a few clever star cameos, and written and directed by guys you've never heard of, Eurotrip wastes no time with the setup and getting its young stars to Europe. Upon graduating from high school, Scotty (Scott Mechlowicz) gets dumped by his girlfriend (Smallville's Kristen Kreuk), who then makes out with the lead singer of the band playing at the graduation party (an oddly-placed Matt Damon, lip-synching a song called "Scotty Doesn't Know"). Simultaneously, Scotty discovers that his German e-mail pen pal, whom he thought was a guy, is actually an extremely hot blonde. Unfortunately, drunk and despondent, he has just told her to stop writing (thinking it was a guy coming on to him). Spiritually devastated, Scotty decides to head across the Atlantic with his friends - requisite crazy guy Cooper (Jacob Pitts), nerd Jamie (Travis Wester), and Jamie's tomboy sister (Michelle Trachtenberg) - to seek the Aryan beauty of his dreams.
