Call it The Fairly OddDrake…
Drake Bell will be back on Nickelodeon in 2011 as the pink hat loving 5th grade scamp in the live action movie A Fairly Odd Movie: Grow Up Timmy Turner! Bell, who is 24 years old, takes on the role of Timmy as a twenty something guy who refuses to grow up so he won’t lose his fairy godparents, Wanda (Cheryl Hines) and Cosmo (Jason Alexander.) Butch Hartman, creator of the super popular animated series says:
“I think fans of the series will love seeing the characters in this new way. Our mix of live-action and special effects animation will make them look ‘hyper-real’ and our goal is to make this movie as visually exciting as it will be funny.”
Daniella Monet of Victorious! will play Tootie, the girl Timmy might just decide to grow up for and leave his childhood behind.
The TV movie will debut sometime in 2011. It would be nice to see Drake back on TV.

The Six Flags Discovery Kingdom in California had a visit from The Last Airbender stars Jackson Rathbone and Nicola Peltz as the duo met with fans on Thursday afternoon. Tiger cubs were cuddled, otters were held and pictures were taken.
Rathbone and Peltz will play the live-action version of Sokka and Katara, the Water Tribe siblings who accompany Aang (Noah Ringer) as he journeys to the North Pole, learns waterbending and kicks Fire Nation booty along the way.
More super cuteness inside:

Nickelodeon’s incredibly popular animated series Avatar: The Last Airbender is headed to the big screen with director M. Night Shymalan overseeing the live action film. Jackson Rathbone has left his Twilight character of Jasper Hale behind and plays Sokka, the wisecracking, boomerang-throwing Southern water tribe teen who, along with his sister Katara (Nicola Peltz) help airbender Aang (Noah Ringer) discover his true destiny and restore balance to the world. After casting controversy, Dev Patel has the role of Prince Zuko of the Fire nation and Jesse McCartney is not the banished prince.
The Last Airbender will hit theaters July 2nd, 2010.

Taylor Lautner is potentially the hottest young actor to come out of The Twilight Saga franchise. As much as everyone now talks about Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart when it comes to movie projects, Lautner is securing one heck of a commercial future for himself. With starring roles in Cancun, the Max Steel and Stretch Armstrong action hero adaptations, and Northern Lights, (not costarring Tom Cruise however) the actor who just turned 18 is attached to star in Abduction (a Jason Bourne identity in question kind of role) and that pic is up for a bidding war between at least two studios. The big question remains, Lautner is unproven beyond Twilight for bringing an audience to the theater. Will these movies even get made? Is this all just hype for the actor?
Let’s hear what you think – will you go see Taylor Lautner in any of these films? After Twilight is done, do you think you’ll still be interested in him as a character other than Jacob Black?

The Taylor Lautner movie machine keeps rolling. Hasbro, owners of successful toys-turned-live-action flicks like Transformers and G.I. Joe, are teaming up with Universal Studios to get Stretch Armstrong on the big screen and make some dough.
“In the past two years, Taylor has emerged as a real star at the global box office,” Universal Pictures co-chairman Donna Langley said.
“He brings the perfect balance of energy and athleticism to the role of an unlikely super hero with a fantastic super power. We couldn’t be more pleased that he has agreed to be our Stretch.”
Aiming for a summer 2012 release date, this movie could get crowded with other Lautner pics: Northern Lights, Cancun and Max Steel. Are you ready for Taylor’s turn at super stardom with all these action flicks?

The Last Airbender, the live action version of Nickelodeon’s popular animated show, Avatar, isn’t due until July but we are finally getting a few more set photos. The pics were in Empire magazine and our friends at BackseatCuddler.com have them for us to take a peek at. No shots still of Jackson Rathbone as Sokka or Dev Patel as Prince Zuko (there is one shot of Dev on the movie’s imdb page here.) Guess we will have to wait until the full trailer is released in February.
I am looking forward to this. The series was great and I have high hopes that M Night Shyamalan does craft a great film from the material.

Nickelodeon is stepping up efforts to compete with the Disney Channel for your time and viewership. The cable channel is giving the go-ahead to more shows with live actors versus animated series. Now that Drake and Josh and Zoey 101 have ended, Nickelodeon is trying to fill that gap and help their very popular iCarly and True Jackson, VP by surrounding it with other teen oriented shows. The new series ‘The Troop’ has some sci-fi and action adventure to keep you tuned in.
“Troop,” [...] follows Jake (Nick Purcell), a typical teenager struggling through adolescence who dreams of creating his own comic book. When his school counselor (John Marshall Jones) recruits him into the Troop — a secret society that protects the world from the monsters that walk among us — Jake suddenly discovers a whole new existence. He teams with the smart, athletic and popular Hayley (Gage Golightly) and annoying paranormal expert Felix (David Del Rio) to take on monster missions.”
Filming in Vancouver, Nick is hoping for a fall premiere. What do you think? Will you watch it?
