Lady Gaga Will Make Acting Debut In ‘Machete Kills’ (If Lindsay Can Do It, So Can She)

Lady Gaga will make her acting debut in the sequel to Robert Rodriguez’s 2010 grindhouse masterpiece, Machete as “La Chameleón.” It is what I consider a perfect movie for any emerging actress to debut in. In fact, it seems especially fitting for her…

Like its predecessorMachete Kills will be all about the kitschy theatricality.

Theatricality, something Gaga knows a lot about (see the videos for “Paparazzi,” and “Telephone”). On Wednesday the superstar mother of non-dragon monsters Tweeted:

“Yes its true, I will be making my debut as an actress ln the amazing MACHETE KILLS BY @RODRIGUEZ IM SO EXCITED!!! AH! Filming was insane.”

The movie, due 2013, reportedly co-stars Mel Gibson, Sofia Vergara, Amber Heard, and Vanessa Hudgens. Lindsay Lohan, who had a topless supporting role in the original, is not returning.

Jena Malone To Fill Johanna Mason’s Shoes In ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’

Jena Malone, one of my favorite indie actresses, has a confirmed place in the sequel to Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson’s The Hunger Games, which made over $152 million dollars in its opening weekend.

She is set to play the complicated former victor Johanna Mason who, with Katniss, Peeta and the still not-cast Finnick Odair, is thrust into the 75th Hunger Games where former winners are chosen to fight for their lives again.

Many websites would have you believe that Malone is best known for her “work” in Zack Snyder’s disastrous Sucker Punch…  Continue reading “Jena Malone To Fill Johanna Mason’s Shoes In ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’”

Luna Lovegood As Britney Spears? Get On This, Hollywood!

It’s apparent by now to all of you that actors are called upon for a variety of roles daily, whether for TV or movies or depressing ad campaigns like Shannen Doherty’s Education Connection commercials.

Because of this, the news of a Harry Potter side-character actress wanting to play Britney Spears might roll off of you like raindrops on a waterproof coat.

I’m excited because I’m a huge Britney and HP fan (dork alert) so when Evanna Lynch, who played the lovably spacey Luna in J.K. Rowling’s big-screen adaptations told BANG Showbiz“People laugh when I say this but I would love to play Britney Spears in a movie,” I was thrilled.  Continue reading “Luna Lovegood As Britney Spears?

Vanessa Hudgens, Method Actor?

The three edgiest acting gigs Vanessa Hudgens of High School Musical fame has had are as follows…As Zac Efron’s beard, “Blondie” in Suckerpunch and #3, tricking people into thinking Mila Kunis had nude pics.

The edgiest thing she’s done as of now, involves staying at a homeless shelter for two weeks and cutting her own hair for a role in the streetrat pregnancy drama Gimme Shelter.

The movie, which co-stars Rosario Dawson as Vanessa’s junkie mother, shot last year. Hudgens revealed on Friday to Rachael Ray that she got downer and dirtier than usual to get into character.

“My character ends up at this pregnant, homeless teen shelter that’s in New Jersey. I actually went and stayed in a shelter for two weeks before I started filming, I lived there with all the girls, with all the kids. I actually cut my own hair for this movie.”
