Elmore Leonard Character Coming to FX in LAWMAN

Last December, I wrote that Sony Television production company Timberman/Beverly Prods had signed a deal for the television rights to Elmore Leonard’s U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens. Fire in the Hole is the basis for a series featuring U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens. The show would look at Givens not only working cases, but dealing with issues in his personal life, including his aging father and ex-wife. Givens also appeared in the novels Pronto and Riding the Rap. Here is the hat that Leonard says is that of Raylan. The show is to be directed by Michael Dinner. This has me excited.

Steven Zahn, Kim Dickens in Talks to Join Treme

The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Steve Zhan (Out of Sight, That Thing you do!) is in discussions to join the cast of David Simon’s upcoming HBO drama Treme. According to the site, his character would be a “whip-smart street dancer, local radio DJ, band member and proud New Orleans native with anger issues.” I have always like Zahn, many of his films suck, but I have enjoyed him. It would be nice to see him step into a role that would give him a chance to really show off his acting and musci skills. He sings and plays guitar. In That Thing You Do, he played and sang. Steven will next be seen in A Perfect Getaway, in...
