Today's talk you might've missed:
Let's start with the bad news: the "Fargo" you keep hearing about - the one airing on FX Tuesday night - isn't a repeat of the 1996 movie.
Instead, it's a new 10-episode "limited series" from Noah Hawley ("Bones") that's like an homage to the Coen brothers' classic: it takes some of "Fargo's" elements and then applies them in an original way.
And that's the good news: FX's "Fargo" isn't a remake, and it's better off for it.
With his plan to appear on both "Good Morning America" and "Live! With Kelly and Michael," Michael Strahan is going to need lots of coffee.
Thankfully, his new co-workers at ABC's "GMA" are a thoughtful bunch, as they presented the former pro athlete with a coffee mug twice the size of his head when he debuted on the morning program Tuesday.
For movie inspiration, Brad Pitt is looking no further than his bookshelf.
The actor/producer, who just won an Oscar with 2013's adaptation of Solomon Northup's slave narrative, "12 Years A Slave," is now working on an adaptation of late journalist Michael Hastings' examination of the nation's military commanders.
Called "The Operators: The Wild and Terrifying Inside Story of America's War in Afghanistan," Hastings' 2011 account has as its central set-piece the downfall of General Stanley McChrystal, who resigned after a damaging profile of him and his team ran in Rolling Stone magazine in 2010.
Now, Pitt's Plan B production company is teaming up with New Regency and RatPac Entertainment to develop the project. "Animal Kingdom" writer/director David Michod is attached to write and helm "The Operators." On top of producing, Pitt's expected to play the role of McChrystal himself.
Every marriage has problems, but the couple in Gillian Flynn's "Gone Girl" are a special case.
As fans of the runaway best-seller know, Flynn's Nick and Amy Dunne have a five-year marriage stuffed with secrets, half-truths and flat-out deceits that all begin to slowly tumble out after Amy's mysterious disappearance on their wedding anniversary.
