Val Kilmer, Ryan Phillippe
After taking over the Super Bowl, Saturday Night Live's favorite inept spy, MacGruber, is ready to explode onto the silver screen — perhaps with a former Caped Crusader in tow.
Val Kilmer and Ryan Phillippe are in negotiations to star in the film, co-written by MacGruber himself, SNL star Will Forte, who will reprise his role, according to the Hollywood Reporter. SNL's Kristen Wiig will also join as his always imperiled assistant.

So I come back from a week away, and what should await me but a time warp to a long-forgotten (and happily so) era of kitschy schlock. Courtesy, naturally, of NBC, whose new regime appears to be operating under an embargo banning anything with a shred of originality. Two hours of American Gladiators (which I skipped) followed by two hours of Knight Rider (which I forced myself to endure). Fasten your seatbelts. Its going to be a forgettable night unless you enjoy the rubbernecking spectacle of watching a network slip further into the abyss of cultural irrelevancy. (You doubt me? I guess you missed the promos for Mondays newest reality gem, My Dad Is Better than Your Dad.)The new (more or less) Knight Rider wasnt really a show, it was more like the longest car ad in human memory: Brought to you by the star of our show, (name of car). Almost made you pine for the good old days of the writers strike.Despite a few contemporary touches on...

Jeers to Knight Rider for stalling at the starting line. I was never a fan of the original '80s series in the Hasselhoff canon, my taste veers more to Baywatch but it was more entertaining than this crap-tastic remake. As the voice of KITT 3000, the monotonous Val Kilmer sounded like he literally phoned in his performance (original choice Will Arnett, who had to drop out due to a sponsorship conflict, would've been more fun). New driver Justin Bruening is one bland slab of beefcake, and the special effects looked slapped together on roughly the catering budget for Transformers. Seriously, the Hoff's drunken-burger video was less embarrassing.For another take on Knight Rider, read the Roush Dispatch.

"Michael, call our lawyers.... "Will Arnett has been replaced as the voice of KITT in NBC's soon-to-premiere Knight Rider TV-movie/backdoor pilot. According to Variety, though Arnett had already recorded what I am sure was some deliciously dry dialogue, it came to light that because the Arrested Development alum has done voice-over work for General Motors and KITT is "played" by a Ford Mustang he'd have to graciously bow out.Val Kilmer instead will lend his pipes to the shape-shifting upgraded supercar.

It's the perfect equation for success. Val Kilmer is reuniting with Top Gun director Tony Scott for the Season 4 premiere of Numbers, airing Sept. 28. "Its a double whammy!" says series star David Krumholtz. "We've had a lot of great actors on the show, but Val takes the cake. We've got to thank Tony for bringing him in." And Kilmer, who also worked with Scott on True Romance and Déjà Vu, is no stranger to mathematical plotlines. "Val played the original math and science genius in Real Genius, reminds Krumholtz. "That was shot at Cal Tech, which is where we shoot our show. Val is revisiting his old roots as an actor. Though Krumholtz doesnt have any scenes with Kilmer, hes psyched to have the star onboard. Hes one of the most provocative actors, he says. It proves our show is a cut above the rest to attract actors like him. Hopefully this will get more eyes on our show. And that means bigger numbers. — Repor...

Rex Linn on CSI: Miami
During CSI: Miami's holiday hiatus, Rex Linn has set aside Det. Frank Tripp's badge to tackle the role of party planner, as the die-hard Texas Longhorn fan prepares to host the pre-Rose Bowl gathering. (You think we're kidding, but we're not. We've talked to the guy — this thing is big.) Might some real-life lawmen need to break up the bash? TVGuide.com talked to Linn about his college-football loyalties, his fantastic deal on beef brisket and what the future holds for Miami's Frank.
