I’m not sure if I’m happy or frightened. The Hollywood Reporter is saying that the WB has ordered a pilot for Young MacGyver, an update of the television show that starred Richard Dean Anderson from 85-92. This new show focuses on MacGyver’s nephew, is being written by Sam Baum, and reunites the production team of John Rich, Henry Winkler (yes, the Fonz), and Stephen Downing.
A couple of bits of Harry Potter news – after denying he had major health problems, the agent for actor Richard Harris, who plays Professor Dumbledore, says he is in fact hospitalized for treatment of Hodgkin’s Disease. Fortunately Hodgkin’s is very treatable, and he’s done well, and is expected to be available for filming the third movie. In the meantime, catch the UK trailer.
