? Battlestar Galactica‘s Katee Sackhoff is voicing a Mandalorian in tonight’s episode of Clone Wars. The Mary Sue calls Sackhoff’s voice coming out of a Mandalorian helmet “pretty dang cool,” but I call it “someone’s long-awaited sexual fantasy.”
? NBC is making a Dracula show. It has nothing to do with Bram Stoker’s Dracula other than the title character. NBC is describing it as “”Dangerous Liaisons meets The Tudors” and as a big, sweeping international soap opera that is young, sexy and supernatural.” As someone who gets furious whenever Dracula isn’t portrayed as a bad guy, I may need you guys to provide an alibi when I blow up the pilot’s set. Er, if the pilot’s set happens to blow up. (Via Bloody Disgusting)
? ? Sites keep posting this new pic of Johnny Depp as Barnabas Collins in Tim Burton’s Dark Shadow‘s movie (which is a movie based on a TV show, hence my sketchy, pitiful reasoning for including it here). He looks okay, which is to say better than before, when he was a White Walker and Edward Cullen’s love-child. So that’s the hard-hitting news, I guess. He looks marginally all right now.

Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
