Jason Clarke Terminator John ConnorEXCLUSIVE:  The Terminator reboot is getting more interesting by the minute. Jason Clarke, so good in Zero Dark Thirty, is in early talks to play the role of John Connor, the leader of the rebellion against the Skynet artificial intelligence system bent on wiping out the human race. This comes as Game Of Thrones star Emilia Clarke emerges as the frontrunner to play Sarah Connor (with Brie Larson also in the mix) for Thor: The Dark World helmer Alan Taylor. Arnold Schwarzenegger is also expected to reprise his signature cyborg role in a film that involves time travel into the future.

Paramount has signed on to distribute, and has set a July 1, 2015 release date.

EMMYS Q&A: Anna Gunn, Emilia Clarke, Aaron Paul, Linda Cardellini, Robert Morse

By | Saturday August 17, 2013 @ 3:49pm PDT

AwardsLine Editor Christy Grosz, Managing Editor Anthony D’Alessandro and contributors Paul Brownfield and Thomas J. McLean assist with Deadline’s TV coverage.

Three of the supporting acting drama series hopefuls, Anna Gunn and Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad), Emilia Clarke (Game Of Thrones) and two guest acting drama series hopefuls, Linda Cardellini and Robert Morse (Mad Men), share thoughts on their characters, shows and nominations.

ANNA GUNN (Breaking Bad, AMC)

AwardsLine: Have you enjoyed the way your character Skyler has transformed?
Gunn: When I first talked to Vince Gilligan about the part, there wasn’t a huge amount of information about her in the pilot. I wanted to make sure she wasn’t off in the background as the long-suffering wife. Vince sold me completely when he told me, “She’s going to be Carmela Soprano, but she’s going to be in on the crime.”
