It may be hard to believe, but Jon Hamm has never actually played the lead character in a movie. That's all about to change -- deadline.com announced Thursday that he's slated to star as a phenom sports agent in "Million Dollar Arm. " (Misleading title: this is not a combination of "Million Dollar Baby" and "Moneyball".) While we look forward to spending even more screen time with a giant Hamm head, we broke down our favorite supporting Hamm roles -- and a certain leading adman -- in pie chart form.

Emmanuelle Chriqui and Emily Osment aren't just breaking out of the box in "Cleaners;" they're exploding the expectations of fans used to seeing them in "Entourage" or "Hannah Montana. " "It was beyond fun. It is what I've wanted to do for a very long time," Chriqui told me during a Sept. 25 call with reporters.

** (out of four) I support liking brie on your burger, but snooty businessman Arthur Shaw's (Alan Alda) extravagance catches up to him when the FBI snags him for securities fraud. Since the stolen money includes the pensions of all the staff in Arthur's building, a ragtag crew of the tower's employees/residents (Ben Stiller, Casey Affleck, Matthew Broderick, Michael Pena) recruit an amateur thief (Eddie Murphy) to help swipe $20 million from the crook. If ever there was a victimless crime, this is it. The buzz: Not only does the plot and rhythm of the occasionally...

**1/2 (out of four) With a good magic trick, you feel just as tickled during the illusion's setup as you do after the big finish. In the magician heist-thriller “Now You See Me,” giddy mind games just give way to indifference. At least the film keeps enough mysterious plates spinning for audience members to miss some of what it's up to. In the introductory sequence, an unknown figure scouts four ambitious magicians as they seem to evade flesh-eating piranhas or read people's minds.

Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys have begun filming "The Americans" for FX in Brooklyn. I'm looking forward to the series, a Cold War spy drama set in the 1980s and scheduled to premiere in January 2013. It comes from "Falling Skies" producer Joe Weisberg, a former CIA agent who became an author and TV producer. Graham Yost, creator of FX's excellent "Justified," and Joel Fields are also executive producers with Amblin Television honchos Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank. "The Americans" is produced by Fox Television Studios and FX Productions.

Philip and Elizabeth Jennings learned many valuable parenting lessons in the first season of FX's "The Americans. " Philip (Matthew Rhys) and Elizabeth (Keri Russell) appear to be a typical suburban Washington, D.C., couple, but they're actually lethal KGB agents plotting to bring down America in Cold War era 1980s. To celebrate the addictive spy thriller, Fox Home Entertainment has released a "Parenting 101" tips video. The video shares these tips, cutting them together with examples that show the Jennings doing the exact opposite.

The ampersand strikes again in TNT's latest crime procedural, "King & Maxwell," but two names in the title doesn't always mean double the quality. Like the network's "Rizzoli & Isles" & "Franklin & Bash," the new series ( 9 p.m. CT June 10, TNT; 1.5 stars out of 4 ) will live and die on the casting - because everything else about it feels as stale and standard as week-old white bread. Thankfully, this one stars the always-likable Jon Tenney, most recently Fitz on "The Closer" and "Major Crimes," and the always-game Rebecca Romijn from "Ugly Betty.
