  • I like Howard, but really dislike Matt Dillon. So, no.

    • I feel the exact opposite! I love that we all think so differently. Anyway, I’m intrigued by this but being on Fox…. I just don’t know.

  • Cast great or not why would a Network allow the most bomb proof movie guy to do same thing in TV?!

      Best thing Iron Man franchise did was tell him to take a hike.

  • Hmmm, a M. Night Shyamalan “mind-bending thriller”. Let me guess, there’s going to be a “supposedly” big twist at the end.

  • Actually, the novel is just called “Pines”. Pretty good quick read.

  • M Night rips off Twin Peaks. It’s too intruiging not to watch, even if it will be a disaster.

  • I always have a love/hate relationship with Terrence Howard. I did enjoy him on L&O: LA, not so much in a few of his movies though. Probably will check it out though. ^^
