    It was just announced Ewan McGregor will be part of season 3 of “Fargo” and Sylvester Stallone “Omerta.” Let’s make some suggestions to some movie stars dragging their feet about making the move to the small screen!

    Let’s try and make this fun AND please aim big!

    My suggestion: Tom Cruise, he keeps making action movie after action movie but remember when he made bolder choices i.e. “Magnolia” or “Born on the 4th of July” or even was charming “Jerry Maguire” or played a semi-villain “Interview with the Vampire.” An HBO limited series could reenergize his career.

    Daniel Day-Lewis. He doesn’t need it but it’d be fun to see him in television.

    Jim Carrey should’ve made the dive ages ago.

    I feel like James Marsden would do well on TV. His movie choices are a bit all over the place so he definitely wouldn’t be boring lol

    the first two names who came to mind are Hillary Swank and Jodie Foster. I feel like both would excel on cable.

    I also feel like both need a little bit of a boost from a high profile project if they ever want their careers to get some hype again.

    I also think Ashley Judd may want to think about television more seriously. Her last big attempt was a total failure (the ABC show “Missing”). But I think with the right script she could easily excel at a broadcast drama.

    Two more who just sprang to mind:

    Jennifer Aniston: I think if she returned to television she would instantly have the most talked about new show of the fall season; it would give her more hype than any of her past films have ever given her and she’d have a real chance at gaining some long overdue momentum for her career.

    and Megan Fox would seem to be a natural fit for a television series. I’d love to see her in a science fiction or genre type show. I feel like she’d be a natural fit in that environment.

    Aniston will definitely be doing at least a limited series within a couple years. Her entire film career has been a mess, and she has to be a little jealous of the work Theroux gets to do on The Leftovers. Honestly though, with Adams, Naomi Watts, Witherspoon, Kidman, McGregor, Jonah Hill, Stallone, Emma Stone,etc all doing TV now, it’s just a matter of time before every big movie star vascillates between both mediums.

    I don’t think Jennifer Aniston counts as a movie star, does she?

    She never broke out as one. But she keeps herself away from booking television to convince the industry she’s a film actress full time.

    I’d like to see Julia Roberts make the jump. She’s done some TV already (“Law & Order,” “The Normal Heart”), but I think she’d be great if she dived deep into a really meaty dark role in a miniseries or anthology like Felicity Huffman in “American Crime.”

    Megan Fox was actually quite good when she guest starred in “New Girl” this season. I think she’d be good in another spiky, witty comedy like that.

    I agree.

    NBC has announced a live production of A Few Good Men for 2017. Tom Cruise starred in the 1992 Best Picture nominee as Lt. Kaffee, and I think casting Cruise to follow Jack Nicholson in his Oscar nominated performance as Col. “You can’t handle the truth” Jessup would be a shot in the arm for TV version.
