While at 2012 Comic-Con, Bryan Fuller mentioned that he was working on a new “Pushing Daisies” project that was neither a comic book nor a miniseries. In a new interview (video above), Michael Ausiello added that the upcoming revival isn’t a film, either. When pressed if it was moving to Broadway, Bryan merely shrugged and said “perhaps.” What do you think, guys? Will we be seeing “Pushing Daisies” as a stage performance soon? An official announcement will be made once everything is arranged, but hopefully we can expect it soon!
A new film clip from 30 Beats has been released via Vulture, this one featuring Lee Pace acting alongside Paz de la Huerta (“Boardwalk Empire”). At just over two minutes, it depicts her desperate struggle to connect with Lee’s character, Matt Roberts, a doctor determined to dissuade her sexual desire for him. It’s probably considered NSFW (Paz is in lingerie the entire time), but it’s not too revealing otherwise. Remember: 30 Beats hits theaters and VOD this Friday, July 20th.
The first film still from Breaking Dawn featuring Lee Pace has been added to the gallery. It features Lee – as the nomadic vampire, Garrett – in the woods with fellow vamps. This picture appeared in EW a few days ago, but a larger version is now available courtesy of ScreenSlam.
With Comic-Con underway and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn (Part II) a featured component of this year’s convention, it’s no surprise that some promotional materials are starting to surface. Yahoo revealed a handful of character posters for the film, depicting the numerous new vampires to be featured in the second half of Breaking Dawn. Among those vamps, Lee Pace is finally given a better look. With the disheveled hair and red contacts, is he what you imagined Garrett to look like? Check out a larger version in the gallery, or head over to Yahoo if you’re interested in seeing his co-stars (including his love interest, Kate, played by Casey LaBow).
Take a look at the amazing new scroll from The Hobbit, depicting numerous scenes from the upcoming film. Unfortunately, there’s still no official look at Lee Pace as Thranduil; however, the rest of the cast on their unexpected journey look great (and so do the featured elves). When you check out this “poster” in the gallery, remember to enlarge it for best viewing.
Peter Jackson just posted the above poster on his official Facebook, citing that it would be handed out at this year’s Comic-Con. The gorgeous artwork seems to call back on the pastoral elements of The Shire while incorporating the whimsy LOTR fans know and love, highlighting Sir Ian McKellen’s legendary Gandalf in the process. Here’s what he had to say about the newest poster for The Hobbit:
Hi everyone. Here’s an exclusive Comic Con poster. Be sure to get your copy in San Diego and let me know what you think of it! Cheers, Peter J
With 30 Beats finally getting ready for release, some new information is surfacing. First of all, another version of a poster can be seen above, which is seemingly being used for online promotion only. Considering there’s no cast list or distributor information, I’m not entirely sure it’s official.
There will be a New York premiere for the film on July 17th. Although it’s been confirmed that Jason Day will be there, there’s no word yet on whether or not Lee Pace will make an appearance. (Considering The Hobbit is now wrapped and Lee is based in NYC, however, hopefully fans can expect him there and there’ll be pictures/interviews to report on.) When – or if – I find out the location of the event, I’ll edit the post in case anyone is close by and wants to drop in.
Remember: 30 Beats will conveniently be available on VOD, but it will also be released in select cinemas on July 20th. To see if it’ll be shown near you, check the theater listing guide.

This week’s Entertainment Weekly highlights numerous projects that will be seen at Comic-Con 2012, and that happens to include The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn (Part II). There’s a small article talking about the final film in the franchise, and Kristen Stewart herself claims that “the ending is nuts.” Though Lee Pace is not explicitly mentioned, there is a photo that was printed with the article and he can be seen in it (on the left). Breaking Dawn hits theaters November 16th.
Congratulations are in order for the hard-working cast and crew of The Hobbit, as the films officially wrapped earlier today in New Zealand. (That’s Friday, July 6th, observing time differences.) Peter Jackson posted the above photo on his official Facebook with the following words:
We made it! Shoot day 266 and the end of principal photography on The Hobbit. Thanks to our fantastic cast and crew for getting us this far, and to all of you for your support! Next stop, the cutting room. Oh, and Comic Con!
The films will now enter into the post-production phase, with part one – An Unexpected Journey – gearing up for a December 14th release date.
Yesterday in Wellington, New Zealand, numerous actors from The Hobbit joined Sir Ian McKellen on stage at the State Opera House. The intention was to help raise money for the Isaac Theatre Royal in Christchurch, as it was damaged in the headline-causing earthquake in NZ just last year. Lee Pace was, in fact, in attendance, along with co-stars (of course) Ian McKellen, Richard Armitage, Aidan Turner, Luke Evans, Billy Connolly, Dean O’Gorman, and Bilbo Baggins himself, Martin Freeman. Director Peter Jackson was also there.
No professional photos or videos from the show seem to be available, but RichardArmitageNet was awesome enough to round up a bunch of accounts from fans attending the event. Check them out below (Lee is the obviously tall one with a light blue shirt on):

Evidently, Lee announced to a couple of fans that Martin Freeman and Richard Armitage would both be at this year’s ComicCon in San Diego. He didn’t mention his own appearance, however.
