From book to movie to TV

The website Word & Film recently compiled a list of 10 upcoming TV shows based on books. We've already written about most of them (NBC's Dracula and Crossbones, Fox's Sleepy Hollow, etc.), but I was interested to see that NBC has ordered a midseason comedy based on Nick Hornby’s 1999 novel About a Boy. The story has already been turned into fairly successful movie—and helped launch the career of Nicholas Hoult, who I suspect was known as "that weird-looking kid from that one Hugh Grant movie" for years, before his image evolved into "that weirdly hot guy from X-Men and Skins, who used to be that weird-looking kid from that one Hugh Grant movie". Here's hoping his replacement finds equal success.
