The subway between Grand Central Station and Times Square is going back in time to promote the return of 'Deadwood',' HBO's hit, gritty series about the Old West.

Starting March 1 and running for at least one month, the interior of a three-car S train will be redecorated with fake wood, tiles and even faux cushions to look like western-saloon train cars.

The second season of the popular drama debuts on March 6.
Here's some news combining two different aspects of Toobworld - The League of Themselves and multiverse connections:

Part time pain-in-the-neck, full time genius, Larry David ['Curb your Enthusiasm'] might be set for a role in "Spider-Man 3", says a scooper for
Aint it Cool.

David told BBC Radio 4 that he had been asked to film a part in the forthcoming - still a good year or so away - second sequel to Sam Raimi's original money spinner.

Hard to think of David playing anyone other than himself, so chances are we'll be seeing just that - a cameo as himself.
NBC has ordered a pilot for a comedy starring 'Saturday Night Live' head writer Tina Fey, while ABC has given the go-ahead to a project featuring former 'SNL' cast member Chris Kattan.

The untitled Fey project will star the Weekend News Update anchor as the head writer of an 'SNL'-like variety show, focusing on her efforts to control a volatile star and executive producer. She also wrote the pilot and will serve as an executive producer.

ABC's untitled Kattan comedy centers on an egocentric consumer reporter (Kattan) who thinks the world revolves around him. Kattan will serve as a producer.

NBC has ordered a pilot for 'Notorious', starring Tori Spelling as a version of herself in the period immediately after 'Beverly Hills, 90210', with her character depicted as an underdog in the un-celebrity world that she desperately tries to be a part of.

If there's going to be references to her old TV show and/or other projects, this show sounds like it's going to be one big Zonk! nightmare.
