The actor sent out a cryptic Instagram post that read: “While I was filming XXX, guys on set called me Air Diesel… The time to return has come. Filming starts December in the Philippines. #ILiveForThisShit”. Could this be the official announcement of Xander Cage’s return on the big screen? Diesel made the extreme sports/ espionage actioner a hit in 2002, which spawned a sequel xXx: State of the Union, which starred Ice Cube. We’re not sure if Diesel is jumping the gun on the announcement or just having a little fun but it remains to be seen if this action project is officially green lit in the coming weeks.

Jon Stewart Gets An Attitude Adjustment
Many wondered what Jon Stewart would be up to after his Daily Show career and we now know that he’s tipped his toe into the realm of the WWE.

A day later, Stewart received a memento for his actions when Cena appeared in an in-ring segment to deliver an Attitude Adjustment to the former host. Let’s see if Stewart will extend his WWE shenanigans to a lengthier stint in the coming months.

Sons of Anarchy Spin-Off
sons_anarchy1It looks as if Kurt Sutter is ready to rev up one more time for the small screen with a spin-off of Sons of Anarchy. The FX series based on the motorcycle club was a huge ratings pull for the channel and it’s certainly not surprising why an idea for a spin-off is being mooted. Reportedly, the Sons of Anarchy spin-off may not focus on the shenanigans of SAMCRO but possibly their rivals, The Mayans. Is a prequel tale on Jax’s dad too much to ask?
