The Golden Compass

Gina Wilhelm Actress - The Golden Compass

"The Golden Compass," the 2007 movie based on the popular children's book series, has made its regular television debut. Will there ever be a sequel to this picture?

Starring Nicole Kidman as the villainous Mrs. Coulter, the movie won an Oscar for Best Achievement in Visual Effects, a BAFTA award, an Art Directors Guild Award, and a Costumers Design Guild Award.

Nicole Kidman and Dakota Blue Richards, who played heroine Lyra, were both also nominated for Best Performance - Female in the National Movie Awards, UK.

The book "The Golden Compass" was the first in the "His Dark Materials" trilogy written by Philip Pullman. However, to date there has been no sequel to the movie.

Critical reception for the movie was mixed, and it didn't make a profit until its international screening.

While there is a possibility of a sequel, there are no concrete answers as to when - or whether - one will occur. There is no schedule for the release of one at this time.

Amber Tamblyn

Gina Wilhelm Actress - Amber Tamblyn

Amber Tamblyn joins the cast of "House" tonight for a 13-episode arc. When she got the offer, she knew of the show's star, Hugh Laurie, primarily from his work on "Black Adder."

Of Mr. Laurie, Tamblyn said, "He's incredible. He's been so much fun to work with." She was in awe of his ability to carry a program for seven years.

Tamblyn, of course, was the title character of the show "Joan of Arcadia" for two years and knows whereof she speaks.

She originally didn't want to do "House," believing it just a medical show. She has since learned that, "it's a very complex show about complex characters and their dark traits, their light traits, everything."

Tamblyn will be playing the "annoyingly smart" Martha Masters until at least March. "House" airs on Fox on Monday nights at 8 p.m.
