Good news for Patrick, he’s joining Fargo season 2!

Putting FX’s “Fargo” at No.1 on my list of 2014’s Best TV Shows has not, apparently, landed me magic casting power on the second season. FX announced casting for the season’s lead on Thursday (January 8) and, sorry Twitter followers and podcast listeners, it’s not Joel Kinnaman.

Patrick Wilson is set to play Young Lou Solverson, Vietnam veteran and clean-cut Minnesota State Patrolman, the character who was played by Keith Carradine in the anthology’s Emmy-winning first season.

While I will continue to insist that side-by-side pictures of 1975 Keith Carradine and 2015 Joel Kinnaman would have made this a no-brainer, Wilson’s a pretty fine choice. The “Little Children” and “Watchmen” star was an Emmy nominee in 2004 for “Angels in America” and should been nominated for an Emmy for “Girls” in 2013. Wilson’s most recent regular TV role was on CBS’ short-lived “A Gifted Man.”

Lou’s wife Betsy has yet to be cast, nor has four-year-old Molly, though my proposal of Allison Tolman wearing shoes on her knees remains available.

Also landing regular roles for the season are multiple Emmy winners Jean Smart and Ted Danson, joining previously announced Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons.

Danson, who will be completing his work on “CSI” before beginning production on “Fargo,” will play Hank Larsson, sheriff in Rock County, Minnesota and Lou’s father-in-law. Hank is described as “an unflappable WWII vet who embodies a certain cowboy poetry.”

Smart will play Floyd Gerhardt, the matriarch of a Midwestern crime family finally getting to take control after 40 years of standing by her husband.

In addition to those three regulars, an assortment of recurring “Fargo” players have been announced.

That casting is as follows:

*** Nick Offerman will play Karl Weathers, the town lawyer for Luverne, Minnesota. Karl is “a Korean War vet, Karl is a flowery drunk blessed with the gift of gab and the eloquence of a true con artist.”

*** Brad Garrett will play Joe Bulo, frontman for a new crime syndicate trying to push in from Kansas City, while Bokeem Woodbine will play Joe’s enforcer Mike Milligan.

*** Jeffrey Donovan is set as Dodd Gerhardt, Floyd’s eldest son, a hothead who isn’t pleased to now be reporting to his mother. Angus Sampson will play Bear Gerhardt, Floyd’s middle son, with Kieran Culkin as youngest Gerhardt Rye.

Production on “Fargo” Season 2 begins on January 19 in Calgary. The 10-episode prequel anthology will premiere next fall on FX.

Now that James Wan is free to return to direct ‘The Conjuring 2,’ and after a little release date shuffling, New Line has decided to move the upcoming sequel onto some prime movie real estate: ‘The Conjuring 2′ will hit theaters in the summer of 2016, as New Line looks to duplicate the success of the first film, which hit theaters in the summer of 2013.

Wan had previously stated that he wanted to distance himself from horror films after directing ‘The Conjuring,’ but after completing work on ‘Furious 7,’ he’s getting back into the genre with ‘The Conjuring 2.’ New Line had scheduled a pre-Halloween release date of October 23, 2015 for the sequel, but replaced it with an untitled horror film and delayed the release of the follow-up, presumably to work with Wan’s schedule.

Variety now reports that the studio has scheduled ‘The Conjuring 2′ for a June 10, 2016 release, looking to replicate the first film’s success — which shouldn’t be too hard now that they’ve got Wan back in the director’s chair.

The first film was based on real-life paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren, played by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga, who are called upon when a family is being tormented by evil spirits in their new home. ‘The Conjuring’ led to the spinoff ‘Annabelle,’ which was also based on a real-life case investigated by the Warrens.

Wilson and Farmiga are expected to return for the sequel, but it’s unclear which of the Warrens’ cases the new film will explore. The pair are responsible for investigating famous cases like the Amityville house and the case that served as the basis for the horror film ‘The Haunting in Connecticut.’

Patrick Wilson, Matt Gerard and Kevin Weisman will no longer appear in Marvel’s Ant-Man.

The project has been in a state of flux after the abrupt exit of director Edgar Wright in May due to creative differences.

A source tells The Hollywood Reporter that the trio of actors, who were attached to Wright’s version, will no longer appear in the film. Wilson’s exit is due to scheduling conflicts.

Marvel, which will hit Hall H on Saturday, hired Peyton Reed to replace Wright in early June.

Paul Rudd is attached to star in the superhero project, with Michael Douglas and Evangeline Lilly also signed on.

The story will follow con man Scott Lang (Rudd), who has the ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength. He must embrace his inner hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym (Douglas), protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.

New project for Patrick:

Patrick Wilson, Jessica Biel, Imogen Poots, and Toby Jones have signed on to star in The Blunderer.

The story, adapted from Patricia Highsmith’s novel of the same name, follows Walter Stackhouse (Patrick Wilson), a successful architect with a lovely wife (Jessica Biel) in the 1960s. While Walter appears to have the perfect life, he becomes obsessed with an unsolved murder case, which spirals out of control as he faces both a deadly killer (Toby Jones) and an ambitious detective, all while lusting for another woman (Imogen Poots).

Andy Goddard (Torchwood Declassified) is directing from an adapted screenplay by Susan Boyd, with Christine Vachon, David Hinojosa and Ted Hope producing, and Nick Meyer, Marc Schaberg and Kelly McCormick serving as executive producers. Sierra/Affinity is handling international sales at the Cannes Film Festival, with CAA overseeing domestic sales. Production is scheduled to begin later this year.

Patrick Wilson will next be seen in Stretch, The Man on Carrion Road and Ant-Man. Jessica Biel has The Truth About Emanuel and Nailed awaiting release. Imogen Poots starred in Need for Speed, and she has upcoming projects such as Filth, All Is by My Side and A Long Way Down coming out later this year. Toby Jones is coming off roles in Muppets Most Wanted and Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Great news! The Conjuring Sequel is coming next year. Set for October 23rd, 2015

New Line has set its “Conjuring” sequel for a pre-Halloween release on Oct. 23, 2015, with Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga returning to star.

The yet-to-be titled sequel, which does not have a director yet, is the first title to land on the date.

New Line scored a massive surprise hit last summer with James Wan’s supernatural thriller “The Conjuring,” which amassed about $320 million in worldwide box office on a $20 million budget.

New Line had already begun development of a sequel before the movie opened last July. Chief exec Toby Emmerich told Variety in December that “Conjuring 2” would tap a similar vein as the first film, which largely avoided conventional horror film ploy while exploring demonic possession.

“‘The Conjuring’ is incredibly effective and scary without the use of blood, gore and death,” he said at time. “It’s a horror film that emphasizes atmosphere and suspense in the tradition of classics like ‘Psycho’ or ‘The Others.’”

Set in Rhode Island in 1971, the story is based on the work of real-life paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren — portrayed by Wilson and Farmiga. Ron Livingston and Lili Taylor played the father and mother of the five Perron girls who were terrorized by the haunted house.

The team of Carey Hayes and Chad Hayes, who penned “The Conjuring,” came on board as writers for the sequel last summer. The brothers interviewed Lorraine Warren extensively as part of developing the script.

Warner Bros. had originally dated “The Conjuring” for Jan. 25 of last year but then decided to move it back to the summer as a result of the test screening results. Producers are Rob Cowan, Peter Safran and Tony DeRosa-Grund.

Emmerich has said Wan is expected to be involved in some capacity with the sequel.

New Line has already started filming “Annabelle,” a spin-off based on a possessed doll introduced in “The Conjuring.”
