Here’s some great news to kick off the weekend. Many AHS fans were hoping for it and their wishes were granted today by Ryan Murphy. The 49-year-old producer confirmed Evan Peters will appear in American Horror Story: Hotel. He even has a room number.
And then there were four. When Grey’s Anatomy first premiered back in 2005 on ABC, the medical drama featured nine series regulars. Isaiah Washington was the first to leave, after controversial comments. Shortly thereafter, T.R Knight followed and then Katherine Heigl and Sandra Oh. After Thursday night’s shocking development, another original bit the dust. If you’ve been watching this season, you probably have a good idea who. Find out below.
The Devil Wears Prada actor is the latest to join the star-studded live action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast. Unlike Emma Watson, Ian McKellen, Ewan McGregor, Emma Thompson and company, Stanley Tucci won’t be playing a beloved character from the 1991 animated classic. Instead, a brand new character has been created for the 54-year-old thespian to play. Find out below.
When Mo’nique teamed up with Lee Daniels, she earned an Oscar statue for her stunning work in Precious. Since nabbing the Academy Award, the 47-year-old actress has been practically MIA. Not for lack of trying though.
A couple of months ago while promoting her film Blackbird, Mo’nique revealed she was set to reunite with Daniels on two projects- The Butler and Empire. Eventually, the roles went to Oprah Winfrey and Taraji P. Henson respectively.
After she claimed she was initially offered the juicy role of Cookie Lyon, Danny Strong, the writer for The Butler and co-creator of Empire, stated that Mo’nique was never offered the roles. Turns out, the actress wasn’t lying one bit.
During an interview with Sway, she pulled out the emails, proving her claims were valid. While I can’t picture anyone else as Cookie than Taraji, I’m glad that Mo’nique cleared her name. Many thought she was making things up as retaliation for Daniels saying Mo’nique ‘blackballed herself‘ in Hollywood after winning the Oscar. Check out the emails and interview below.
With a female director finally locked down to helm the Wonder Woman film (Patty Jenkins stepped in after Michelle MacLaren quit), focus can now be shifted to casting some of the key roles, specifically the superheroine’s love interest.
Rumor has it, Scott Eastwood was offered the role but was also eying a smaller part in Suicide Squad. When pressed to make a decision, the 29-year-old stud decided to participate in the star-studded antihero film instead. That sucks big time. He would’ve been perfect to play United States Air Force pilot, Steve Trevor. Find out below who producers are test-screening for the part.
Ewan McGregor is no stranger when it comes to big budget musicals. The 44-year-old Scottish actor dazzled alongside Nicole Kidman in Moulin Rouge. Til this day, I play the soundtrack frequently, especially “Your Song” and “Elephant Love Medley.”
If reports are true, moviegoers will soon see McGregor showing off his vocal chops once again on the big screen. According to the Hollywood Reporter, he’s in final negotiations to join the live action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast. Find out which character he might play below.
Anyone else going through Empire withdrawal? I definitely am. It’s not the same without a weekly sassy one-liner from the one and only Cookie Lyon (Taraji P. Henson).
TVLine.com reports that two cast members featured during the freshman series of the hip-hop drama have been promoted for Season 2. Have any guesses? While I was hoping for either Naomi Campbell or Courtney Love to make more appearances, I’m okay with the lucky duo. These two characters are fan favorites and made memorable splashes whenever they appeared on screen. Find out who below.
Talks of a Zoolander sequel have been swirling for years now. Things finally kicked into high gear when Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson reprised their fashionable roles to walk the runway during Paris Fashion Week, officially ushering in Zoolander 2. Since then, everyone’s been trying to learn more details about the film.
Stiller has wisely kept everyone informed via his Instagram. In the past several days, the 49-year-old actor revealed two more additions to the already ridiculously good-looking cast. As you’d expect, he shared the news in irreverent ways.
For Penelope Cruz, Stiller posted what appears to be a school picture taken during Cruz’s awkward growing up phase. While for Billy Zane, he filmed the Titanic star wearing a Hansel-looking wig. For the latter video, you can hear Ben talking in his Zoolander voice. I can’t wait for the comedy sequel. Check out both announcements below.
