Modern Family Sweeps Board at Emmys

The Modern Family cast at the Emmys

Modern Family swept the board at the Emmy Awards last night winning four prizes. The sitcom took home the top Comedy Series prize as well as gongs for Supporting Actress and Supporting Actor in a Comedy for Julie Bowen and Eric Stonestreet, while the ABC show's helmer Steven Levitan won the Director award.

Psychological thriller Homeland upstaged some of the more established programs by winning four drama series honors including the main prize for the category and Series Actor and Actress in a Drama prizes for Damian Lewis and Claire Danes, respectively. Damian introduced himself to the audience as "one of those pesky Brits" and later admitted he thought Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston, who has won the accolade three times, would be victorious in the category again this year.

Michael J. Fox to Star in New TV Show

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Comedy, Announcements, News,

Michael J. FoxMichael J. Fox is set to return to TV screens.

The 51-year-old actor - who was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in 1991 - will come out of his early retirement to star in an upcoming Sony Pictures Television comedy in 2013 which is inspired by his own life. He is teaming up with Easy A director Will Gluck and writer Sam Laybourne, who has worked on Cougar Town and Arrested Development, Vulture reports.

Michael rose to fame in 1980s sitcom Family Ties before making his big screen debut in Back to the Future as time-travelling teen Marty McFly.
The actor then starred in the hugely popular political sitcom Spin City, but quit his television career in 2000 to focus on his health and set up the Michael J. Fox Foundation to help find a cure for the degenerative condition.

He has made several minor guest appearances on TV shows since, however, including Rescue Me, Curb Your Enthusiasm and The Good Wife. Michael also had a recurring role on comedy Boston Legal.

Daniel Radcliffe Michael J. Fox as Marty McFly

Daniel Radcliffe wants to star in a remake of Back to the Future. The 22-year-old actor - who is best known for playing the title role in the Harry Potter franchise - would be keen to take on the role of Marty McFly if a new version was ever made.

Speaking about the film - which starred Michael J. Fox - Daniel told The Sun, "If there were a Back to the Future remake I would be in it. I fancy myself as a Michael J. Fox - sort of short and quite hyperactive. That sounds like me."
