Neptune Rising: Could a "Veronica Mars" Movie Be in the Works?

Yes, that is the squealing of millions of fanboys and girls you hear.

Just when I thought that my love for Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas couldn't increase, I learned one tiny little thing that made my heart surge: he and Kristen Bell have begun conversations about possibly developing a feature film version of Veronica Mars.

Entertainment Weekly's Michael Ausiello
has the scoop about the possible feature, which is said to be in the early stages of discussion. "Kristen and I ran into each other, and we did discuss a Veronica movie," Rob Thomas confirmed to Ausiello. "It's very tough to focus on it right now with two pilots on my plate [...] But as soon as I have any free time, that's my top priority."

Wowzers. Though with Thomas currently waiting to learn the fate of the two drama pilots waiting for a pickup at ABC (Cupid and my favorite, Outrageous Fortune), it might be a while before Thomas is free to pursue a feature version of everyone's favorite blonde sleuth.

Personally, I'd rather the duo reunite for a six-episode Veronica Mars limited series than begin the arduous process of bringing a two-hour Veronica feature film to fruition but I'll take any Neptune-related goings-on with much appreciation.

Stay tuned.

This news just made my week. I think it's a great idea and hope that Rob and Kristen and the whole cast can get together and get this going soon..
Kristen Bell deserves to be on the big screen! She was fantastic in Forgetting Sarah Marshall and I'd love to see her slide back into the (gum)shoes of Veronica Mars.

Katie Lee Packs Her Knives: Breaking News from Bravo's "Top Chef"

The android has left the building. Or the test kitchen, anyway. Top Chef 's robotic host Katie Lee Joel, the veritable "Uptown Girl" herself (pictured at left), will NOT be sticking around for a second course of Bravo's hit culinary competition. According to a well-placed insider, Joel will "not be returning" to the show. No reason for her departure was cited. Unfortunately, the perfect replacement for Joel, Top Chef judge and professional chef Tom Colicchio, will not be taking over as the reality series' host (damn!). Instead, the show's producers are currently scouring to find a replacement for Joel. Top Chef 's second season was announced by Bravo last month, but no return date has been set for the series' ten-episode sophomore season. Stay tuned as this story develops. UPDATE (6/27): Bravo has now confirmed the above story .

Have a Burning Question for Team Darlton, Matthew Fox, Evangeline Lilly, or Michael Emerson?

Lost fans: you don't have to make your way to the island via Ajira Airways in order to ask a question of the creative team or the series' stars. Televisionary is taking questions from fans to put to Lost 's executive producers/showrunners Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse and stars Matthew Fox ("Jack Shephard"), Evangeline Lilly ("Kate Austen"), and Michael Emerson ("Benjamin Linus") for a series of on-camera interviews taking place this weekend. If you have a specific question for any of the above producers or actors from Lost , please leave it in the comments section below . I'll be accepting questions until midnight PT tonight and, while I can't promise I'll be able to ask any specific inquiry due to the brevity of these on-camera interviews, I am looking for some insightful and thought-provoking questions to add to the mix. So who knows: your burning question might get asked after all.

Televisionary

Back in 2006, I founded a television blog called Televisionary (the very one you're reading now).  At the time, it was a little side-project that I stared while working in television development: something to do during the off-hours or (my infrequent) down-time or at my desk during my lunch breaks.  Over the next few years, Televisionary morphed into a full-time job as I watched almost everything on television and cataloged my thoughts, penning reviews, conducting interviews with talent, breaking news, and aggregating the day’s entertainment news headlines and major listings every morning. It got noticed by Entertainment Weekly and The New York Times , The Chicago Tribune and CNN, Deadline and Variety . Televisionary took on a life of its own. It became discussed in Hollywood and I was always surprised to discover that actors or producers or executives who read my TV blog. It was a secret at first, one that I eventually shared with a few friends before spreading outwards, thanks
