K-2SO is not the first robot Alan Tudyk has played. He also portrayed one in the 2004 Will Smith film I, Robot—and he initially thought that’s what Rogue One director Gareth Edwards wanted to talk to him about the first time they spoke.
A new video just came online that seems to show several Rogue One characters suffering a fate different than the one they have in the film.
The most moving moments in the history of Star Wars are always the darkest. The end of The Empire Strikes Back and the deaths of Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda are a few examples on a much longer list.

There are loads of exciting things coming with the release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story but high on that list is K-2SO, the surly droid voiced and motion-captured by Firefly’s Alan Tudyk. The actor dropped a few new details about the droid’s history and his less-than-sunny personality.
Con Man is the star-studded parody show created by the ubiquitous Alan Tudyk, where he and Nathan Fillion play parody versions of themselves as they traverse the world of comic book conventions. Season two is coming soon and the first trailer is finally here.
We already knew that DC’s new office comedy Powerless, about regular people who must endure sharing the world with the superpowered, would have at least one obscure hero in its midst: Crimson Fox.

While the first Rogue One trailer revealed Felicity Jones was playing a character named Jyn Erso, all the other characters remained nameless, forcing us to refer to them by their actors’ names. No longer!
Alan Tudyk and Nathan Fillion’s Con Man already had a bit of a twisty turn-y satirical premise—it was a series about actors in another series within it, a Firefly-esque show called Spectrum cancelled before its time. But now Spectrum is going to live on in our world, if not in Con Man’s, as a new comic miniseries.
Alan Tudyk and Nathan Fillion have mined their collective Firefly experience to launch Con Man, a webseries focusing on the misadventures of Wray Nerely (Tudyk) who was once on a short-lived cult classic science fiction show called Spectrum. Sound familiar? We asked Tudyk and Fillion what about conventions are so…
Once again, Comic-Con was a massive Thunderdome in which entertainment properties entered...and only some of them left. Studios and creators battled to create buzz for their projects, and some triumphed. Here are the biggest winners and losers of Comic-Con 2015.

Disney's new film, Big Hero 6, is a celebration of science and the joy of innovation. In the guise of a superhero origin story, it tells a smart, inventive tale about young science geeks who grapple with issues around the responsible use of technology. It's one of the best science-fiction films in ages. Minor spoilers…
Wreck-It Ralph was a revelation: a fairytale for the videogame age about the true meaning of villainy and heroism. Now Ralph's cowriter, Jennifer Lee, has written and co-directed a new film, Frozen, in which one of the all-time great fairytale villains gets a whole new outlook.
We've certainly wondered what other plot lines the Firefly writers had in store for the crew of Serenity, but we had no idea how many plots were spilling out of actor Alan Tudyk's brain. Nathan Fillion shared one of stories Tudyk pitched for Firefly, and it involves two words: dog pheromones.
Alan Tudyk is obviously deeply attached to the character of Firefly's late, great Hoban "Wash" Washburne. He spent a lot of time coming up with his own Wash story ideas — including the big reveal that Wash has tons of tattoos from the Alliance's toughest prisons. In a terrific new interview with SFX, Tudyk talks about…
Yesterday Nathan Fillion tweeted this very interesting picture of Joss Whedon, Adam Baldwin, Alan Tudyk and himself. But what were they meeting for — to talk about reuniting for a new project? Or is Fillion just being a big tease?
V exceeded many people's expectations last night, getting 13.9 million viewers and coming first among adults aged 18-49. But is the show just one big anti-Obama screed, as some have claimed? We'll answer that question... with spoilers.
