Marvel Comics' Star Wars: Rogue One — Cassian & K-2SO Special No. 1 will detail the first meeting between Diego Luna’s Rebel captain and his trusty reprogrammed Imperial droid K-2SO (voiced, in the film, by Alan Tudyk), and explain how the unlikely odd couple became one of the most fearsome galactic duos this side of Luke Skywalker and R2-D2.
“Powerless” co-showrunner Justin Halpern took to Reddit to respond to fan questions about the show and its untimely cancellation by NBC.
You know who seems really tired of superheroes? The people involved in "Powerless," the superhero sitcom premiering on NBC Thursday night. Set in a subsidiary of Wayne Enterprises — Batman’s day-to-day business operations — the new show has permission from DC Comics to poke fun at DC superheroes. But what comes across more forcefully is a weariness with the superhero overload in TV and movies right now.
Much like a phone booth costume change, NBC’s Powerless has gone through a revamp so drastic, the show is almost unrecognizable. Well, it is if you’re one of the Metropolis dwellers who can’t tell Superman from Clark Kent. All he did was take off his glasses, people!
Alan Tudyk is quickly becoming a favorite among Star Wars fans for his performance in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Alan played the brutally honest droid K-2SO and got a pretty funny compliment from fellow droid actor Anthony Daniels, who played the beloved C-3PO. Alan visited Conan Monday night, where he told the the host about the couple of interactions he’s had with Anthony.
To avoid spoilers, security while making any "Star Wars" film is very intense, and the security for the most recent episode, "Rogue One," isn’t any different, one would assume. So imagine the terror Alan Tudyk suffered when he found he just couldn't find his copy of the day's pages, which actors are supposed to hand in so they can be shredded...
'Godzilla' director Gareth Edwards makes the first 'Star Wars' movie targeted directly at adult fans of the original, a gritty war movie with few kid-friendly ingredients
C-3PO may know over 6 million languages, but Alan Tudyk, who plays new droid K-2SO, is fluent in Star Wars impressions. Tudyk, who also loaned his voice talents to this year’s Zootopia and Moana, steals his Rogue One: A Star Wars Story scenes with a motion-capture performance as a gruff security droid. In this video, Tudyk and co-star Riz Ahmed (who plays Rebellion pilot Bodhi Rook) accept our challenge, giving us such never-before-scene moments as “Yoda doing his taxes” and “Darth Vader having an asthma attack.” Watch it above.
It’s easy to imagine that the only thing as cool as being in a Star Wars film is getting your own Star Wars action figures. Thus, when we sat down with the cast of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, we made sure to ask what they thought of their toy likenesses. In our exclusive new video (watch it above), Riz Ahmed gives Alan Tudyk a lesson on the proper way to handle action figures when you’re playing “fighty-fight” — the British term for playing with toys, apparently?
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story actor Alan Tudyk is married! Tudyk and choreographer Charissa Barton tied the knot Saturday at The Paramour Estate in the Silver Lake neighborhood of Los Angeles, PEOPLE confirms. The actor looked dashing in an Armani tux, and Barton wore a stunning Vera Wang wedding gown. Guests dined on food brought by Contemporary Catering, and later were treated to cake and ice cream sandwiches by Vanilla Bake Shop & Ron’s Artisanal Ice Cream. Florist Catalina Neal provided the flower arrangements. ...
Nicole Scherzinger, Jemaine Clement, Alan Tudyk, Rachel House and Temuera Morrison have joined the voice cast of Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Moana. Disney, which is opening Moana on Nov. 23, 2016, had previously announced that Auli‘i Cravalho is voicing the title character Moana, a teenager who dreams of becoming a master wayfinder, and Dwayne Johnson as the voice of Maui — half god, half mortal. Co-directors are Ron Clements and John Musker, who were behind The Little Mermaid and Aladdin.
For more than a year now, the cast of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has had to remain tight-lipped about the characters they’re playing in Lucasfilm’s first standalone adventure in the beloved saga. “Loose lips sink starships” was the motto J.J. Abrams drilled home on the set of The Force Awakens, setting the tone for Rogue helmer Gareth Edwards (Godzilla). Today, though, at Star Wars Celebration Europe in London, the cast could finally, finally spill some intel on the folks they’re playing.
NBC has given series orders to two new comedies. “Powerless,” set in the DC Comics universe, and “Trial & Error,” starring John Lithgow and Nicholas D’Agosto, have both been picked up by the network.
Are you ready to go deep with nerd icon Zachary Levi? Creator of TheNerdMachine.com and star of Chuck, Levi now plays the lethal Luke Collins on NBC’s Heroes Reborn. “I want to play a character that’s really different from what I typically have done,” he told the show’s creator, Tim Kring, who cast him as a bereft father whose “vigilantery” involves taking out evos rather than being one of them.
