Scottish actor David Tennant, who recently wowed critics as the star of BBC America's Broadchurch, is set to star in Fox's U.S. adaptation, TV Guide Magazine has learned.
Tennant, perhaps best known as the tenth doctor on cult fave Doctor Who, will play a character similar to his role in the original Broadchurch, but this time he'll use an American accent. As in the U.K. Broadchurch, he'll play the lead male investigator in the case of a young boy found dead on a beach under a jutting cliff-face.
David Tennant and Matt Smith are set to share the screen in November's Doctor Who 50th anniversary special. But Cartoon Network's MAD jumps the gun, bringing together the two Time Lords in the Sept. 2 episode, mashing them up with Whose Line Is It Anyway?

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic
This weekend, more than 6,000 attendees are expected at BronyCon, the largest convention for My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic fans, most of whom are young adult males. Since the revamped series debuted on The Hub in October 2010, it has developed a devoted following outside its intended demographic of girls ages 2 to 11. These unexpected fans, known as bronies, have grown into a diverse and impassioned community, united over one thing: a sincere love of ponies.
There's nothing ironic or perverse about bronies, though at first mention one might assume so. But this hesitation is understandable. Even a lot of bronies were reluctant to start watching the series. "I actually didn't like it the first time I saw it," explains Sethisto, who runs the popular pony site Equestria Daily.
