The actor who played Klingon Leader and Diploma, Kang through three different Star Trek shows died last Wednesday. Michael Asnsara, a Syrian born actor who moved to the United States at age 2, started attending college in Los Angeles to become a doctor before finding his passion. He starred as Cochise in 'Broken Arrow' from 1956-1958, and was once married to 'I Dream of Jeannie" star Barbara Eden.
Ansara had an illustrious career as a character actor on the small and silver screens. He leaves behind his wife of 36 years, Beverly. Us Trekkies, will remember him always as Kang, the Klingon Captain who worked with Kirk to avoid violence in 'Day of the Dove'.
Disney and Lucasfilm have announced plans for a new Star Wars film every summer, beginning with Episode VII in 2015. The news comes from CinemaCon, where Disney also premiered new footage from the Lone Ranger, starring Johnny Depp.

Warner Bros. has been sitting on the film adaptation rights to ElfQuest for a long time. They were close to actually making a movie, but now the rights have been acquired by independent filmmakers Stephanie Thorpe and Paula Rhodes. Who are they? They're the people who made this ElfQuest fan-short back in 2011.
Holy s**t, please let this happen! Nothing is officially set up yet, but there is interest from both sides. Matt Smith said in a recent interview:
"Let's get Peter Jackson to direct one and go and make it in New Zealand. I would love to, I will campaign endlessly to come over and film there."
And Peter Jackson thinks that's a good idea too.
"I'm a huge Doctor Who fan, and I think Matt's fantastic. Just name a time and place, and I'll be there!"
What kind of episode do you think Jackson would direct?
