THR reports that John Karlen, the Emmy-winning actor known for his work on the gothic soap opera Dark Shadows and the CBS police drama Cagney & Lacey, has died. He was 86.

Karlen died Wednesday of congestive heart failure while in hospice care in Burbank, according to Shadowgram, a Dark Shadows newsletter.

After several turns on Broadway and on television, Karlen in 1967 was hired by the new ABC daytime serial Dark Shadows to play the trashy, soon-to-be tortured Willie Loomis, replacing James Hall, who had left abruptly after five episodes.

His character arrives in the town of Collinsport, breaks into the Collins family mausoleum and unwittingly releases the vampire Barnabas Collins (Jonathan Frid), who had spent the past 200 years in a coffin. He's attacked, drained of blood and becomes Barnabas' servant.

Karlen remained on the series through its 1971 conclusion, playing other characters along the way. He also portrayed Loomis in the 1970 feature House of Dark Shadows and the novelist Alex Jenkins in the 1971 film Night of Dark Shadows.

For Cagney and Lacey, Karlen received an Emmy nomination for outstanding supporting actor in a drama series for three straight years (1985-87) and won in 1986 for his work as the understanding and sensitive Harvey Lacey, the husband of Tyne Daly's NYPD detective Mary Beth Lacey. While she was solving crimes, he stayed at home with their two boys and later their baby daughter.

Survivors include his son, Adam, and ex-wife, Betty.

DF News offers its sincere condolences to Mr. Karlen's family, friends and fans.

Possessor

Deadline reports that Neon has taken U.S. rights to Brandon Cronenberg’s sci-fi thriller Possessor, which made its world premiere at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. The distributor will announce a release date in the future for the pic. Well Go USA is handling the home entertainment release.

Possessor, which stars Andrea Riseborough, Christopher Abbott, Tuppence Middleton, Sean Bean and Jennifer Jason Leigh, follows corporate agent Tasya Vos (Riseborough), who works for a secretive organization that uses brain-implant technology to inhabit other people’s bodies – ultimately driving them to commit assassinations for high-paying clients.

Out of Sundance, the movie scored a 93% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
JOE QUESADA ANNOUNCES NEW MORNING STREAMING SHOW

Marvel Watch: Joe Quesada steps in to smooth Cebulski transition ...

Marvel's executive vice president Joe Quesada, like many of us, has been going a tad stir crazy since the ongoing pandemic social distancing, so he has popped a video announcement onto his Facebook and Twitter accounts announcing a new morning show he will be hosting starting Monday.

Joe Q's Mornin' Warm-Up should be, at least in initial stages, as loose as it comes as Quesada familiarizes himself with home streaming tech. From his vid, it sounds as though there will be the usual: Q & A with fans, interviews, behind-the-scences looks, tutorials, live guests over video conferencing tech, etc.

Quesada said the show would start Monday morning, with an announcement coming on Marvel’s YouTube account.

DC COMICS RELEASING LIMITED SELECTION OF NEW TITLES DIGITALLY THIS WEEK DESPITE DIAMOND SHUTDOWN

Last week comic fans and stores were hit with a huge blow thanks to the coronavirus pandemic when Diamond Comic Distributors announced that they will no longer receive shipments of new comics at its warehouses due to the ongoing pandemic, a move that means product dated on or after April 1st will not be shipped. Now, ComicBook.com reports that DC will be going forward with releasing a limited selection of new DC comics digitally on Wednesday, April 1st.

At this point, full details of what DC will release digitally on Tuesday are not yet available. What is known is that at least some of the week's planned new releases will be made available for customers on digital platforms.

Last Monday, Diamond Comic Distributors announced that they will no longer receive shipments of new comics at its warehouses. In an official statement Steve Geppi, chairman and CEO of Diamond’s parent company Geppi Family Enterprises, stated that the move was prompted from what they were hearing from retailers -- specifically that due to stay at home orders put in place by various state and local governments, stores were no longer able to service customers in a business as usual manner. Additionally, Geppi cited the strain and challenges being experienced by supply chain and others due to the coronavirus pandemic as part of the decision to cease weekly distribution of new product at this time.

On Saturday, DC released their own statement on the ongoing issues of distribution and returnability, indicating that they are looking at other distribution methods, something that could long run lead to the end of Diamond's position in the industry and open up other avenues of sales and shipment.

"Additionally, because we anticipate that continued disruption to business operations will create regional volatility, DC is exploring a multi-distributor model to provide us with the flexibility needed during this crisis to get new content to our readers on an ongoing basis," that statement reads. "In the short-term, we continue to engage in active conversations with Diamond to help us solve the distribution issues that have arisen and hope to get new product to stores that want or need it as soon as possible. We will provide additional information about how we’ll make that happen in the coming days."

Stay tuned to DF News for further updates on this situation.
MGM IN TALKS FOR HOT ANDY WEIR SCI-FI NOVEL, 'THE HAIL MARY'

Ryan Gosling Andy Weir

Just what we were waiting for, a hot film deal.

Days after the town jumped all over the new novel by The Martian author Andy Weir, sources said that Project Hail Mary is in exclusive negotiations to be acquired by MGM in a 7-figure deal. Ryan Gosling will produce with Ken Kao. It is the latest bold move for Michael De Luca since taking the reins of the movie side of the studio. The deals are expected to close quickly.

The book is described as a solitary tale of an astronaut on a space ship who is tasked with saving the planet. There are some very clever twists which will not be given away here, but are consistent with the ingenuity that made The Martian a thrilling ride.

Gosling is attached to play the astronaut as well. (via Deadline)
SHIRI APPLEBY IN TALKS TO DIRECT DISNEY+ BODY-SWITCHING MOVIE 'WOULDN'T IT BE NICE'

The actress who helmed episodes of 'UnREAL' and other shows, made her pitch to studio executives via Zoom.

THR reports that in one of the first deals to get underway since Hollywood locked down due to the coronavirus crisis, Disney+ is hiring a director for one of its features.

Shiri Appleby, best known for her longtime acting work on shows such as UnREAL and Roswell, is in negotiations to direct Wouldn’t It Be Nice, a body-switching romantic comedy in the works at Disney+.

Appleby, who also directed episodes of unREAL as well as several other shows, would make her feature-helming debut with Nice. The way she nabbed the gig is very much of the moment in the way Hollywood is operating in these times of lockdown: Sources say Appleby presented her take on the project to Disney executives via Zoom. If a deal makes, she is likely to be the first director to be hired by the studio in this fashion. The project has not been greenlit and is still in development, insiders say.

Nice tells of teenage friends — a star football player on the rise and a brainy girl with few prospects — who wake up 20 years later to find out they are married and living a life neither of them expected.

Alicia Keys is set to perform at the event as well.

"It’s so important to remember that we are all in this together, and our kids and loved ones need outlets to help them process and understand what’s going on and, most importantly, to still feel connected," Bell tells EW about the special. "I hope kids and families come away from this special feeling a little more comfortable and that they enjoy some much-needed moments of humor during this difficult time."

doctor who

Russell T Davies has penned and posted a prequel to the Doctor Who adventure, "Rose" – the episode that marked the series. What we weren't expecting was for Davies to post a sequel to the return episode, "Revenge of the Nestene".

In the sequel, Davies took us back in time to the last days of "The Time War"… and the beginning of the Doctor's return. This time, viewers get a sense of what happened after the final credits rolled on the the Doctor's return. Both were released to coincide with the global anniversary live-stream/live-tweet that took place on Thursday, which Davies also took part in. (via Bleeding Cool)
