"As soon as we got in the room and started reading with Dakota, I knew that I definitely wanted to do it, because there was a tangible chemistry between us," the British actor previously told THR. "It felt kind of exciting and fun and weird and compelling, and so that was it." SAUL LOEB/AFP/GettyImages/AFP/Getty Images Fans of Fifty Shades of Grey will now have to recast the lead role of Christian Grey. But according to reports, the British-born actor got "cold feet" about the role and dropped out, contrary to the Universal statement.

Surprise! Roku LT is a better buy than Apple TV

(Credit: Google) Google TV will soon give up on separate branding and going all-in with its operating system by renaming itself Android TV. Related stories: LA Times cuts off climate-change deniers The television-specific, media-focused version of Android has lay more or less fallow since it received its Honeycomb upgrade in 2011 . There's no word if or when Google is planning on upgrading Google TV from its current Android 3.2, but Google developers and hardware partners have begun to drop use of the "Google TV" moniker in favor of "Android TV," reports GigaOm . The rebranding isn't surprising, considering that Google told CNET after the Chromecast launch in July that Google TV was not about to go the way of the Nexus Q . "Google TV is moving forward in a major way," Chrome and Android chief Sundar Pichai told CNET. Google, he said, planned on announcing more hardware partners for Google TV at CES . It's possible that the January tech mega-show also will see the rebranding into Android TV. <br>Source:

LG PH6700 plasma TV a marvelous value

Comcast and Twitter on Wednesday announced they are teaming up to try to capitalize on the hundreds of thousands of conversations about TV shows that unfold each day on the popular micro-blogging site. The two companies have struck a strategic partnership to introduce a feature designed by Comcast engineers called "See It" that will connect consumers with TV shows. ON LOCATION: Where the cameras roll "We are trying to take advantage of all these social media conversations by linking people to our great content," said Sam Schwartz, Comcast Cable's chief business development officer. "Social media has become another way people find TV shows they want to watch, and we want to be right there in that discovery process." In the last two years, Twitter has turned out to be a digital water cooler with thousands of people around the country simultaneously engaging in real-time conversations about favorite television shows or sporting events as they unfold. Television executives have been trying to figure out how best to harness Twitter as a promotional platform to scoop up new viewers. The partnership between the two companies will allow Comcast Cable Xfinity customers to access NBC TV shows including "The Voice," "Blacklist" and "Chicago Fire" ; movies; and sporting events, including "Sunday Night Football" directly from a Twitter message. <br>Source:,0,1532614.story

GLAAD released its seventh "Annual Network Responsibility Index" and its 18th annual "Where We Are on TV" report Friday, and while some networks were praised for their inclusion of gay and lesbian characters, networks as a whole failed to live up to last year's bump. This year, 3.3% of scripted series regulars will be LGBT, according to the reports , down from 4.4% last year. Fox, home to Glee, which prominently features gay and lesbian characters, was found to be the most inclusive broadcast network, while ABC Family is the most inclusive network on cable. On the other side, History and TBS were graded as the worst, with History having no representations of gay or lesbian characters on any of its shows last season. <br>Source:

The technology's deep black levels and nearly endless viewing angles create a more immersive experience than LED TVs can, particularly when it comes to watching films.
