Oscar nominee Sharon Stone is set to star in a TNT action-drama pilot Agent X, TVGuide.com has learned.
The actress will play Natalie Maccabee, the first female Vice President of the United States. But things in the White House aren't exactly what she expected. Natalie discovers it's her duty to protect the Constitution in times of crisis with the help of her Chief Steward and secret operative, Agent X...
A secret agent with a computer chip in his head may sound like a familiar premise, but CBS' new drama Intelligence is a far cry from Chuck.
Lost's Josh Holloway stars as Gabriel Black, a man whose computer chip allows him to access every piece of information on the internet through a program called Clockwork. If that doesn't sound nearly as cool as Chuck Bartowski being able to do kung-fu with the Intersect 2.0, that's because Gabriel doesn't need those skills — he's already a badass on his own. His "powers" include being able to render a 3D version of a crime scene so he can walk through it, and also get a fact sheet on his enemies so he can exploit their weaknesses. And you better hope your compound isn't controlled by electronic doors, because it'll be far too easy for him to escape.
It's hard enough adjusting to any new job, let alone a top-secret trainee position within the CIA. In Covert Affairs, a new spy series on USA (Tuesday 10/9c), Annie Walker (Piper Perabo) is pulled out of training and sent on a mission — with no clue as to why she was chosen. The 33-year-old Perabo spoke with TVGuide.com about wanting to do the action-heavy show and how affairs of another sort (read: of the heart) become "quite the problem" on Annie's team.

Michael Westen of Burn Notice isn't the only spy on USA anymore. Covert Affairs has joined the cable lineup, the network announced Thursday.

The Bourne Trilogy
Jason Bourne explodes onto Blu-ray with Universal's release of The Bourne Trilogy consisting of The Bourne Identity, The Bourne Supremazy and The Bourne Ultimatum. This 3-disc set collects the three Bourne movies together for the first time on Blu-ray, and is the only way you can buy the movies; they aren't sold separately.
Amber Tamblyn, whose The Grudge 2 opens this weekend and whom I hope to Q&A later today, hint-hint to her publicist who may be reading has joined Blackout, an indie thriller about three people trapped in a hospital elevator for almost 24 hours.... Also per the Hollywood Reporter: Randy Quaid is in talks to play the mentor of Gary the Tennis Coach, starring Seann William Scott.... Brit actor Paddy Considine will play a London journalist sniffing around the CIA in The Bourne Ultimatum, now filming in Europe and Africa.
Jane Lynch, Lovespring International
Who put the overly amorous boss from The 40 Year Old Virgin in charge of a dating service?! Part of the credit goes to Will & Grace's Eric McCormack, one of the executive producers of the Lifetime series Lovespring International (premiering tonight at 11 pm/ET). In this improv comedy, Jane Lynch plays Victoria, the head of an "elite Beverly Hills" dating service... based out of Tarzana, California... whose staffers are as pathetic as its pretend pedigree. At the
Good news — Nicole Kidman has picked her next project, and it isn't Bewitched 2! Rather, the Oscar winner will star in and produce what the Hollywood Reporter is calling a female version of The Bourne Identity. Meanwhile, fellow Academy darling Tom Hanks has also selected his next big-screen outing: How Starbucks Saved My Life. In it, the producer-headliner will play an ad man who gets canned and winds up slinging lattes for a living (or, as I like to think of it, the recurring nightmare Matt Webb Mitovich has when I'm subbing as news editor). Gus Van Sant is the front-runner to direct, the Hollywood Reporter says.
Question: In a Saab TV commercial, the background music sounds similar to the music in the chase scene from either The Bourne Identity or The Bourne Supremacy. Can you find out the title of that music and if it's available for purchase? It's very catchy. Thanks.
Answer: That's Paul Oakenfold's "Ready Steady Go," and it is indeed the same song featured in The Bourne Identity, as well as Collateral, some Fox NASCAR promos and a few other places I can't think of at the moment. Mr. Oakenfold has very considerately made the song available for purchase. You'll find it on his 2002 release Bunkka (Maverick).
