Just days after opening nationwide in theaters, FX acquired the premiere rights to Green Lantern and Mr. Popper’s Penguins.  Green Lantern, from Warner Bros. Pictures finished first at the domestic box office last weekend at $53.2 million while Fox’s Mr. Popper’s Penguins came in third with $18.4 million.  FX is on a movie pick-up roll after completing recent deals for X-Men: First Class, Super 8 and The Hangover Park II as well as Disney’s Tron: Legacy, Sony’s The Green Hornet and Paramount’s Rango


Lost alum Terry O’Quinn landed a recurring role on CBS’ Hawaii Five-O playing a Navy Seal Lt. Commander who trained Steve McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin). 

Long-running CBS drama Criminal Minds keeps its lead actor Thomas Gibson as negotiations were finalized for Gibson to remain on the show for two more years.  The deal was completed in the nick of time as production on the show’s seventh season begins in two weeks.  

HBO’s True Blood added Scott Foley to its cast roster, cites TVLine.  Foley was cast in a major recurring role though his character will not appear until the season four finale and, if True Blood gets a renewal notice, Foley’s character will continue into the fifth season.  Foley will play Patrick, a tough former army buddy of Terry’s (Todd Lowe) who comes for a visit.  Foley is also expected to continue playing Teddy on ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy since the production schedules of the two shows do not conflict.  True Blood debuts season four this Sunday at 9p on HBO.

Josh Cooke joins Showtime’s Dexter for its sixth season playing the recurring role of Louis Greene, a new lab intern at Miami Metro and a friend to Masuka (C.S. Lee). 

In more Showtime news, Griffin Dunne will play a world-renowned management consultant on the premium network’s new comedy House of Lies, per THR.  Dunne’s character will appear in multiple episodes working with Don Cheadle at his firm.
