There May Be a NEW INDIANA JONES in Town…

Bradley Cooper the a team shirtlessNerds, flex your gag reflex. People who thought Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was a completely acceptable movie: I have good news for you!

Disney may be recasting Bradley Cooper as Indy, replacing 71-year-old Harrison Ford after four runs as professor Jones beginning in 1981 with the spectacular Raiders of the Lost Ark. (I love the smell of melting Nazis in the morning.)

A source for Latino Review says the studio is “100% prepared” to move ahead with a younger actor for Indiana Jones 5, with Cooper at the head of the list. LR adds that Frank Darabont (The Walking Dead, The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles) is being considered for lead script writing duties.

Charlie Hunnam Drops ‘Fifty Shades’ Faster Than You Can Say ‘Inner Goddess’

Charlie Hunnam slicked back hairCharlie Hunnam, beloved shirtless star of Pacific Rim and Sons of Anarchy, has backed out of Fifty Shades of Grey.

An official statement from the studio cites a scheduling conflict, saying Hunnam’s leather-clad role on Sons doesn’t allow him the time to prepare for the equally leathery role of Christian Grey.

This is clearly bullcrap, because he knew his exact schedule when he signed on.

A source tells Hollywood Life that Charlie didn’t want Fifty Shades to be “his version of Showgirls,” which seems much closer to the truth, because he’s too decent of an actor to become the laughing-stock of Charming, L.A. and England all because of a paycheck.  Continue reading “Charlie Hunnam Drops ‘Fifty Shades’ Faster Than You Can Say ‘Inner Goddess’”

Jax a.k.a. Charlie Hunnam IS Christian Grey

Charlie Hunnam gif eyebrows Christian GreyForget that Sons of Anarchy and Pacific Rim star Charlie Hunnam is too tall, too blonde and too British to play Christian Grey!

He’s sexy and that’s apparently all that matters when you’re casting 50 Shades.

Hunnam has been confirmed as the male lead in the erotic movie version of the bestselling book by middle-aged pervert E.L. James (I’m just jealous of her giant pile of $), after months of casting rumors mainly involving Ian Somerhalder and Robert Pattinson.

I really don’t wonder how he’ll do as a wealthy control freak abuse victim with a box full of ball gags because Fifty Shades of Grey is literally the stupidest, least tantalizing book I have ever read (still jealous).  Continue reading “Jax a.k.a. Charlie Hunnam IS Christian Grey”

Disney Brings Grandma Leia to ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’

Grandma LeiaCarrie Fisher confirmed her return to Star Wars in an  interview with Palm Beach Illustrated (a publication that usually features wine tasting advice and tips for maintaining “beach beauty”).

Her comments tie in with those made by veteran Mark Hamill (who speculated that Luke would be “living out in some kind of desert igloo with a couple of robots”), and the rumor that Harrison Ford was also being propositioned for Star Wars Episode VII: An Old Hope.

These three are in their 50’s, 60’s and 70’s, and as much as I admire them all, I DO NOT WANT to see them wheeling around the Millennium Falcon cracking wise about their age all bloated and grey like Ford in The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.  Continue reading “Disney Brings Grandma Leia to ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’”

Who Could Possibly Play Pennywise In Stephen King’s ‘It’ Besides Tim Curry?

Hollywood is running out of movies to remake, especially in the horror department. We’ve revisited the obvious – Texas Chainsaw MassacreFriday The 13th, Halloween and Psycho. To the slightly less obvious choices of The Wicker Man, Sorority Row, The Thing (a remake of a remake) and My Bloody Valentine.

One movie destined for the revamp treatment was Stephen King’s It, which originally aired as a TV movie on ABC. It was low-budget and half-assed, despite Tim Curry’s memorable performance as the ancient manifestation of fear in Derry, Maine.

Judy Greer Joins ‘Two And A Half Men’ Cast

Why does anyone bother going on Two And A Half Men? It’s not even a real show. I get that it pays well, really really well, but going on the show is like admitting your career is about to be over.

Or maybe it’s being revitalized, in this one moment for one show and nothing else, ever again! Look at Charlie Sheen, he’s about as likely to have another movie career as Lindsay Lohan is. Less, even.

Judy Greer, on the other hand is a respected comedic character actress. She’s been in everything. Jawbreaker, What Women Want, Californication, the wonky-eyed lady on Arrested Development, The Village. EVERYTHING.
