New Playback trailer, Ben Cotton & Michael Eklund on Alcatraz, new projects for James Marsters and Avan Jogia, and more updates

A quick round of updates, in very random order.

A new trailer for Playback, with Alessandra Torresani, has been released on iTunes. You can watch it here. The film will be available on iTunes on February 3 and hit theatres in early March.

James Marsters will make a guest appearance in The Wedding Band, a new comedy with Brian Austin Green, Harold Perrineau and Melora Hardin that will premiere on TBS in the summer. More details on James-Marsters.eu.

Avan Jogia directed a zombie film in Vancouver over the holidays. Nickutopia has an article and a BTS pic.

Born to Race with John Pyper-Ferguson was released on DVD and Blu-ray in France last week. You can see the French trailer here.

Two things on TV tonight.

There is Glee 3x10, "Yes/No," at 8 pm on Fox. Eric Stoltz directed it. Preview:

And a new episode of Arctic Air airs at 9 pm on CBC. You can find a few promotional pics on Facebook. Here is the teaser, with Leah Gibson, Brian Markinson and Steve Bacic from Razor:

Ben Cotton played one of the jailbirds in Alcatraz yesterday, in episode 1x02, "Ernest Cobb."

If you haven't seen the episode, you can watch it on Fox.com. If you have a DISH Network account, you can watch it now and if you don't, it will become available in about a week.

If the second episode looked particularly pretty, it's because they had Stephen McNutt as the director of photography.

Here is a teaser for next week's episode, "Kit Nelson," with Michael Eklund playing Kit Nelson, the menace of the week:

Here are some details about Defiance, the new show Michael Taylor is working on that just got its lead -- Grant Bowler from True Blood (via Deadline):
Set on a future Earth, Defiance introduces players and viewers to a world where humans and aliens live together on a planet ravished by decades of war and transformed by alien terra-forming machines. It centers on Jeb Nolan (Bowler), the law keeper in a bustling frontier boomtown that is one of the new world’s few oasis of civility and inclusion. Nolan is a former Marine who fought in the alien conflict and suffered the loss of his wife and child in the war. The trauma transformed him into a lone wanderer in the wilds of this new and dangerous world. Defiance seems to be blending Western and alien themes, something that last year’s feature Cowboys & Aliens attempted to do, but the series is set in the future.
