Who will play the Masters of Sex ? The answer is...

Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan !

He will play William Masters, she will play Virginia Johnson. They are considered "human sexuality pioneers", and this series by Michelle Ashford (The Pacific) would be based upon Thomas Maier's book, The life and times of William Masters and Virginia Johnson, the couple who taught America how to love".

Michael Sheen's previous TV credits include a recurring guest spot on 30 Rock season 4 and his portrayal of Tony Blair in two TV movies written by Peter Morgan : The Deal (2003) on the BBC and The Special Relationship (2010) on HBO — he also played the former prime minister in the feature movie The Queen (2006), also written by Peter Morgan. Paul Bettany walked out of the role of William Masters a few weeks ago.

Lizzy Caplan's previous TV credits include appearances on Freaks and Geeks and season 1 of True Blood, and leading roles in The Class and also in the brilliant comedy Party Down. She's currently playing a recurring role on New Girl.

John Madden (Shakespeare in Love) will shoot a pilot for Masters of Sex next March in New York. Showtime will then decide if they pick it up to series. The other pilot in development at Showtime is Ray Donovan, starring Liev Schreiber.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
