Neil Patrick Harris Hosting 87th Academy Awards

Someone has graduated to the big leagues. After hosting the Tony Awards and Emmy Awards previously, the 41-year-old actor has been tapped to host the 87th annual Academy Awards. The perfect man for the job if you ask me.

If sometime in the future, Neil Patrick Harris is asked to host the Grammys, he could be the first person to have a hosting EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscars and Tony) to his credit. It’s rare for a performer to win each of those statues, but hosting all events has never been done. If anyone can do it, it’s Harris.

The How I Met Your Mother actor takes over Ellen DeGeneres who hosted last year’s event which was seen by 43 million viewers. It saw ratings rise 6%, becoming the most-watched entertainment broadcast in 10 years. Can he topped those numbers? More importantly, can he outdo DeGeneres’ epic selfie pic?

Neil Meron and Craig Zadan have been recruited to produce the Oscars for the third year in a row. The annual extravaganza will take place Sunday, February 22, at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.

Do you think NPH is a great choice to host the event? He has a very similar hosting style to Hugh Jackman. I fully expect an extremely gay-centric production. I.CANT.WAIT!!! Watch his video announcement below and weigh in afterward.

Several months ago, Warner Bros. revealed a plan to release ten DC Comics films over the next few years. During an investor conference today, the studio revealed the titles of the movies and some previously unconfirmed casting. It’s definitely an ambitious endeavor with a couple years having three major releases.

Not surprisingly, a Wonder Woman film is in the works given that the studio recently revealed her origin story of being Zeus’ daughter. Also in the mix is a Guardians of the Galaxy-like film featuring a band of imprisoned supervillains named Suicide Squad. There’s even another Green Lantern film scheduled for 2020. I highly doubt Ryan Reynolds will return to play the superhero.

Along with the ten films announced, standalone films for Superman and Batman are in the works. Yup, Ben Affleck will headline his own superhero film. Let’s hope this one fares better than Daredevil. Check out the titles below, along with some of the stars playing them.

Hollywood sure does love to recycle. Reboots, remakes and adaptations are all the rage these days. Several films are currently being developing into possible television series. Some examples include projects based on Rush Hour, Mortal Instruments, Guardians Of The Galaxy and Resident Evil.

Cameron Crowe’s Say Anything was also on the docket but was nixed after both Crowe and star John Cusack blasted it via Twitter. Now comes word that the romantic comedy Monster In Law starring Jennifer Lopez and Jane Fonda is the latest feature film possibly headed to the small screen in the near future.

It pays to have Ellen DeGeneres on your side. Especially if you want a part in Magic Mike XXL.

Stephen “tWitch” Boss, who’s frequently the guest DJ on her daytime talk show, already has a gig in the highly-anticipated sequel. DeGeneres even waxed his extremely buff torso on camera in preparation for his role. Her sexy gardener Nick, aka Bill Reilich, has now booked a role in the film.

A couple of weeks ago, DeGeneres blindsided one of the film’s producer into taking an impromptu meeting with Reilich. It appears it was all worth it. Channing Tatum called Ellen while filming to tell Bill the great news.

“Nick! What’s up man?” Channing said. “After careful inspection of your ab region, we have deducted that we need you in Magic Mike XXL.”

I wonder if his ab region was the only part of Bill’s anatomy Channing and the powers-that-be checked out. Recently, alleged nude pics of Bill have surfaced. Let’s just he doesn’t disappoint in any department.

Check out Bill learning about his big break below, along with more shirtless photos. I’ve embedded the video of Ellen waxing tWitch as well for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy.

You know the script must be horrendous if Hugh Grant is leaving a project because of it. Like him but let’s face it… he’s not exactly super busy these days.

The 54-year-old actor has been keen on reprising his role of Daniel Cleaver ever since a third Bridget Jones film was announced back in 2011. Since then it’s been in pre-production hell with numerous script rewrites. He revealed why he left the film in a recent interview. Read it below.

Has Sam Mendes Found His Femme Fatale For Bond 24?

When it comes to James Bond movie rumors, especially involving Bond Girls, I tend to take them with a grain of salt. For some reason, most of them never come to fruition. When Skyfall was in pre-production Freida Pinto, Olivia Wilde, Rachel Weisz, Margarita Levieva and Alice Eve were just a few names reportedly to have snagged the femme fatale role. Eventually, Bérénice Marlohe and Naomie Harris officially joined the ranks of Bond Girls.

For Bond 24 (working title), Penelope Cruz, Downton Abbey actress Joanne Froggatt, Norwegian actress Synnøve Macody Lund have all been mentioned at some point or another. Even Rihanna’s name has been in the mix. I’m thinking she’ll probably do the theme song and make a brief cameo much like Madonna did in Die Another Day. Find out who’s reportedly snagged a role in Bond 24 which begins filming in December.

Sometimes things happen for a reason. Originally Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone were attached to this project but dropped out. Kristen Stewart and Ben Affleck were then set to star in the caper comedy but that fell through as well. Enter Will Smith and The Wolf of Wall Street’s Margot Robbie. After watching the first trailer for Focus, I can’t imagine any of the previously aforementioned actors but Will and Margot in the film. They have undeniable chemistry.

Smith plays a grifter named Nicky Spurgeon who shows upcoming con artist Jess Barrett (Robbie) the tricks of the trade. Things get a tad complicated when Smith eventually romantically falls for Robbie. It sorta reminds me of Hitch but Robbie playing a much prettier version of Kevin James. And of course all the sexual tension ;)

Gerald McRaney, BD Wong and Rodrigo Santoro round out the cast. Focus hits theaters on February 27, 2015. Check out the first trailer below.

The Maze Runner trilogy won’t be following in the footsteps of similar franchises like The Hunger Games, Divergent and Twilight. Thank God finally someone had the balls to buck this annoying trend of splitting the final chapter into two films. We all know splitting them is not about storytelling but rather about milking theater goers.

“I think three is the number; beginning, middle, end, that’s it. Four? I think there’s something off about four. For me, if I have any say in it, there’s three movies basically,” director Wes Ball tells Digital Spy. “We’re not going to [split a book in two], no way. I think three movies is the right number, Star Wars!”
