Sam Neill Cast in Thor: Ragnarok

Sam Niell recently appeared in Hunt for the Wilderpeople, directed by Taika Waititi. He's now revealed that the director managed to land him a small role in the upcoming Thor threequel. The relevant part of the video is at 3:15 (it should start there automatically, but I couldn't get it to).
I can’t tell you what it is, I am actually, I did a couple of days on Thor just before I came over here

Meet the New Boss Clip 1

ABC has released a clip from Tuesday's episode of Agents of SHIELD.

Class BTS Videos

The BBC has posted a couple of short videos introducing the new show.

Katie Cassidy to Appear in Arrow's 100th Episode

We've known for some time now that we haven't seen the last of Katie Cassidy's Laurel Lance. Well, now the actress has confirmed that she will be appearing in the 100th episode of Arrow. This is the winter crossover, by the way.

Brenda Strong Cast in Supergirl

Advance press copies of the Supergirl premiere (and many other shows) are out now, so we're getting into a bit more spoiler territory. Entertainment Weekly has reported that Brenda Strong will be playing an undisclosed recurring part in the new season. Based on the fact that only three of the five new characters they announced in June were ever cast, I'm guessing she's the Cadmus doctor.

Class Premiere Details

The BBC has announced that Class will debut on October 22, with two episodes titled For Tonight We Might Die and The Coach With the Dragon Tattoo. As rumored, Peter Capaldi will appear in the first episode. Unfortunately, in a step backward that the BBC hasn't done since circa 2011, the show will not screen on BBC America for several months. Canadians, however will get it on the same day as the British. The first episode will also screen in Shoreditch on October 20.
The wait is over! Today BBC Three confirm the new YA drama, Class, written by Patrick Ness, will drop its first two episodes on BBC Three on Saturday 22 October.

Coal Hill acts like a beacon across all of space and time to any being who might want to use it for mischief….you’ll have to be on your guard.

Peter Capaldi will join the cast of exciting new talent in the opening episode of the series, For Tonight We Might Die. Coal Hill School holds some very dark and deadly secrets in its shadows… but who will survive?

Commenting on his involvement with the new Doctor Who spin-off series, Peter Capaldi, says: “The Doctor Who family is growing, and it’s fantastic to be able to welcome the young new cast of Class in to the Whoniverse.”

It’s a new term at Coal Hill Academy, and students are preparing for their Autumn Prom. But when the school comes under attack, four alienated students must form an unlikely alliance to defeat them. And this incursion is only the beginning.

Charlie (Greg Austin), April (Sophie Hopkins), Ram (Fady Elsayed) and Tanya (Vivian Oparah), assisted by their physics teacher Miss Quill (Katherine Kelly), are charged with a great responsibility by the mysterious alien known as the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) to guard against the creatures of nightmare that want nothing more than to find a way through to Earth and take it for their own.

Patrick Ness has created intriguing and complex characters that have to navigate their way through more than just teenage hormones, exams and detention. Joining them as series regulars are Jordan Renzo (Chosen, Troubled), Pooky Quesnel (The A Word, Accused), Nigel Betts (Boy Meets Girl, Doctor Who). The first two episodes also feature Ben Peel (The Fall, Vampire Academy), Anna Shaffer (Harry Potter, Hollyoaks), Paul Marc Davies (Doctor Who, Torchwood), and Shannon Murray (The Totally Senseless Gameshow).

YA writer and Class creator Patrick Ness, says: “At last, we can tell you a little more about Class! Though there are still many, many secrets to come. Many. Like, a lot. But of COURSE, the Doctor is in episode one! That’s how these things are done. Truly, though, I can’t wait for everyone to see the show; we’ve worked so hard and I’m so proud of it. Soon, soon…”

Damian Kavanagh, Controller, BBC Three, says: “We know lots of BBC Three fans are Doctor Who fans so Class on BBC Three is a perfect fit. It’s nice to be back as part of the Doctor Who family.”
