Mad Men

Mad Men and American Horror Story lead the nominations at this year's Emmy Awards with 17 each.

The advertising drama is hoping to gain its fifth Best Drama win, which would make it the only series ever to have won the accolade that many times. At present it is level on four victories with Hill Street Blues, L.A. Law and The West Wing. Other nominees in the same category are Breaking Bad, The Good Wife, Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire, British Drama Downton Abbey and newcomer Homeland. Downton Abbey - which was awarded Best Miniseries in 2011, but has switched categories for 2012 - picked up 16 nominations.

Charlie SheenCharlie Sheen will retire when Anger Management comes to an end.

The 46-year-old actor sees his forthcoming new comedy show as his "swan song," and rather than looking for further acting work, he is looking forward to spending more time with his five kids - Cassandra, 27, Sam, eight, Lola, seven, and two-year-old twins Bob and Max - when the program eventually draws to a close.

"When I'm done with this business it's just going to be about soccer games and amusement parks. And when [Anger Management] ends, I'm done. This is my swan song. I've been doing this 30 years. And there's a lot more out there to do than make-believe, you know? I mean, I'm grateful. I've got a dream life as a direct result of television, you know? But at some point you just get tired of wearing somebody else's clothes, saying somebody else's words and working in somebody else's space. I'm also aware of the fact that you don't get these kinds of shots in the same lifetime. You're only supposed to have one hit show, unless you're Kelsey Grammer."

Joseph FiennesThe cast of the second season of American Horror Story is coming together slowly, but surely...

In addition to a handful of actors returning to the FX show from season one, word through the TV grapevine says that Joseph Fiennes -- whom you may recall from his most recent small screen role as Mark Benford on Flash Forward -- is in talks for the Ryan Murphy/Brad Falchuk-created show.

The anthology series takes place in the sixties -- more specifically, in an East Coast institution for the criminally insane. Fiennes would play the head of the institution, where Jessica Lange's character works (incidentally, her character is a love interest for Fiennes').

Musician-turned-reality show judge Adam Levine is also new to the series, portraying a character known only as one half of a couple known as The Lovers.

American Horror Story's sophomore season is scheduled to premiere this Fall.

Adam LevineAdam Levine is set to make his TV acting debut in American Horror Story.

The Maroon 5 frontman and The Voice coach is in final negotiations to appear in season two of the TV thriller - about a family who move into a haunted house - where he will play a contemporary character, who is one half of a couple called The Lovers, according to Entertainment Weekly.

Bosses at FX channel which makes the show are so keen to sign Adam up that they are willing to shoot around the Maroon 5 singer's summer touring schedule.

Despite the huge success of season one of the American Horror Story, creator Ryan Murphy has decided to change the location of the show to the East Coast from Los Angeles and move the setting to a "horror institution" from a family home.

Original cast members Jessica Lange, Zachary Quinto, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, and Lily Rabe will be returning as entirely different characters although no other details of the program's sophomore season have been revealed.

Russell BrandRussell Brand has signed up to front a new topical late night TV series.

The stand-up comic-and-actor has agreed a deal with cable network FX to present the series on which Russell will give his "unvarnished, unfiltered take on current events, politics and pop culture."

"We're very excited to add Russell Brand's bracingly funny, original, and honest voice to the FX comedy line-up. We look forward to supporting Russell and his partner Troy Miller's ambition to strip down the hosted comedy format to its most fundamental elements and to create something daring and unfiltered for the FX audience," said Nick Grad -- FX executive vice-president of original programming -- in a statement.

The 36-year-old star claims he is "excited" to the "point of climax" about the project, which will hit screens next spring. Making a joke about Fox News political commentator Bill O'Reilly, Russell exclaimed, "I am so excited I'm on the point of climax. In fact, I will put the 'O' into FX, which spells Fox, which is actually the channel's real name. That's the only thing that worries me about all this, to be honest. At least I'll be able to have a Christmas drink with Bill O'Reilly."
