HammRad has a nice ring to it, don't you think? Well, we hope so because it might be a nickname you start hearing quite often. "Mad Men" star Jon Hamm and Harry Potter himself, Daniel Radcliffe, are rumored to be cast together in a four-part British miniseries playing Russian doctors at the end of World War I. And here's the really awesome part: Hamm and Radcliffe would play the same role in different time periods.

The news was originally reported by The Sun and we were a little skeptical as to whether it could actually be true, but Vulture has weighed in today to say the rumors line up with what they've been hearing.

Prepare for an epic battle of ferocious girl power-ness when Chloe Sevigny faces off against “American Horror Story” alum Jessica Lange on the second season of FX's horror anthology series.

The actress is set to join the show playing “Shelly the Nymphomaniac,” which EW.com describes as “one of the mortal enemies of Jessica Lange’s character.” So. Freaking. Awesome. The site also reports that the writers wrote the part especially for Chloe. Even. Better.

Star Trek

Though Bryan Fuller is busy prepping his Hannibal Lecter TV series, he definitely hasn't given up on his dream to return "Star Trek" to the small screen.

The "Pushing Daisies" creator recently spoke with Entertainment Weekly about the long-planned project, and he confirmed that he and director/producer Bryan Singer have talked about the idea for a series. It turns out that the show still could get lift off, but not until J.J. Abrams releases his upcoming "Star Trek" sequel.

"Bryan and I are big fans of 'Trek' and have discussed a take on what we would do, and we would love to do it," Fuller said. "I don’t think anything is going to happen in any official capacity until after the next movie comes out. And I'm sure it would be wisely under J.J. Abrams' purview of what happens. He’s the guardian of 'Trek' right now."

Development Arrested

The new "Arrested Development" series is still coming, but now we've learned that a couple of major changes to what we heard about the project in October are going to be taking place.

Development has been arrested for the past few years, but it seemed like the show was finally going to be going full steam ahead when Netflix picked up its fourth season back in November. Now scripts are being written for the new episodes, and series creator Mitch Hurwitz revealed at the National Association of Broadcasters convention in Las Vegas that filming should begin over the summer.

There have been some changes to the original plan, however. Most of them are good, though we're sure some die hard fans will find something to blue themselves over here. Honestly, we don't care what form it takes, because we'll just be happy to have a new season of "Arrested Development" on a Netflix-ready device near us next year.

Westeros has seen better days. Franky, it's never been pretty over there, but the Seven Kingdoms are in even rougher shape than usual, as evidenced by the third episode of "Game of Thrones" season two, titled "What is Dead May Never Die." The Arya Stark-heavy affair saw the brutal deaths of two recurring characters, not to mention the reintroduction of Renly Baratheon, now fancying himself a king. With his return came the debut of Brienne of Tarth, the six-foot-four warrior woman now serving as part of the king's Rainbow Guard.

Get more of our thoughts on the latest "Game of Thrones" in this week's episode of "Watching the Thrones," our weekly video recap!

There just might be some trouble brewing for Jessica Lange on season two of "American Horror Story." What kind of trouble? The catty kind, which just so happens to be our favorite kind.

Per The Hollywood Reporter, French actress Lizzie Brochere has been confirmed for a part on the second season of the creepy, drama-filled FX series. And, according to sources, she could serve up some trouble for Lange, who will take on a new role as the show takes on a whole new set of story arcs.

TV Line reports that Brochere’s character will go by the name Gia. Sources add that while the role has been revamped a bit, Gia was previously described as a "fierce, ferocious, extremely sexual and dangerous wild-child sexpot, the character—billed as a nemesis for Jessica Lange—was likened to Angelina Jolie in ‘Girl, Interrupted.'"

Celebrities, they're just like us! Turns out they also obsess and geek out over outstanding and/or guilty pleasure television like we do. The latest example is one Lindsay Lohan, who inadvertently confessed her love of "Homeland" as the reason she was at home glued to her TV set rather than at a L.A. nightclub last Thursday where she allegedly punched a woman in the back.

The most intriguing part of this story to me, as reported by TMZ, is not that Lohan was at home instead of at a nightclub but that she was watching "Homeland." How's that for an alibi? Everyone should be watching Showtime's expertly-crafted and acted drama, led by Claire Danes and the under-appreciated Damian Lewis, even problem-plagued former child stars.

This got me thinking about other random celebrity fans of shows - those who you wouldn't peg to be familiar with, let alone obsess over certain scripted and unscripted drama. Some unexpected pairings lurk beyond the jump!

After last week's Bastard Hunt, I've finally been able to scrub away the seared image of Joffrey's nauseating visage from the inside of my eyelids just in time for the second episode of the second season of "Game of Thrones," titled "The Night Lands."

A brief preamble: While I can’t claim that I was there from the beginning and have devoured all of George R. R. Martin’s fantastic series in literary form, I have been claiming my right to the throne ever since marathoning the first season of “Game of Thrones” over a weekend. In other words: I’m not an expert, I’m just a fan who now annoys all of his friends by constantly asking them if they’ve watched the show yet and gets frustrated when Auto-Correct messes up all of my texts in Dothraki.

By some miracle divined by the Internet Gods the shocking reveal of Ned Stark’s beheading at the end of season one remained unspoiled for me – so I approached season two not with the question of how would the death of the Stark patriarch effect the characters in the realm but rather how would it effect the show as a whole? To the Westeros virgin, Eddard seemed to be the glue of the show, and without him I was curious to see whether “Game of Thrones” would thrive or languish. Thrive it does.

Warning: spoilers are coming.
