Disney’s live-action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast is beginning to shape up. Earlier this year, it was announced that Emma Watson had been tapped to play leading lady Belle. With Watson on board, I’m confident this project will be top notch. She’s shown extremely good taste selecting films post Harry Potter.
The Mouse studio is taking a huge risk with this adaptation. Beauty and the Beast became the first animated film to be nominated for the Academy Award for Best Picture and beloved by so many. Thankfully, they have a stellar team working on it.
Bill Condon (Dreamgirls and The Fifth Estate) directs the Stephen Chbosky-penned script. Watson previously worked with Chbosky on The Perks of Being a Wallflower. Find out below, who’s taking on the roles of Gaston and the titular Beast. Let’s just say, it’s an all UK affair.
With the success of black-ish and other ethnic-centric programming this season, this latest project from the alphabet network is a no-brainer.
When ABC announced its Uncle Buck reboot featuring an all African-American cast, I half expected the network to tap Kenan Thompson to fill John Candy’s shoes. Admit it, you thought so too. Alas, someone else will play the titular character. Find out who below.
CBS is keeping it in the superhero family for its DC Comics series, Supergirl. The network has tapped two stars who’ve previously donned the red cape to appear in the pilot.
Dean Cain played the Man of Steel in Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman back in the 90s on ABC. Meanwhile, Helen Slater played Supergirl in the campy 1984 feature film. Coincidentally, both the 48-year-old actor and 51-year-old actress appeared in another Superman spin-off, Smallville on The WB. No word on what roles they are playing.
They join Glee alum Melissa Benoist who plays the female superhero in the new CBS offering. Supergirl is slated to premiere on CBS this fall. Find out who else is starring in the show below and also check out a photo of Benoist and Slater together on set.
Earlier this week, Kelly Osbourne threatened to quit E!’s Fashion Police over dreadlock-gate. Even though Giuliana Rancic apologized to Zendaya for her culturally-insensitive comments and Zendaya accepted her mea culpa, Kelly is still jumping ship.
“I WILL NOT BE DRAGED INTO THIS! The situation is being rectified like ADULTS by both parties. I hope you can leave it to them & do the same,” Kelly previously tweeted.
After five years on the panel, the network confirmed that Osbourne quit. Read their official statement below.
Make your reservations now. Mother Monster is ready to check you in.
Apparently, the fifth season of the popular horror anthology is American Horror Story: Hotel. Not only that, but Lady Gaga has snagged a series regular role. The 28-year-old made the announcement in a video teaser via Twitter.
This marks Gaga’s biggest acting gig to date. She’s previously made minor appearances in such films like Machete Kills, Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For and Men in Black 3.
The “Bad Romance” singer is clearly re-inventing herself these days. From classing it up with Tony Bennett, stunning the entire world with her Oscars performance and now this. It’s definitely a far cry from the same woman who once wore a meat dress. Check out the announcement below which could’ve easily been taken from her Fame era.
Bryan Singer is wise and has good taste. He knows not to pass on a good thing when he sees it.
Ben Hardy initially auditioned to play a young Cyclops in X-Men: Apocalypse but lost out the role to Tye Sheridan. Singer was so impressed with him, he cast the 24-year-old actor in another role. No word on exactly what key role he’ll play, but speculation is that it might Angel. Hardy is best known for his work in the BBC soap, EastEnders.
Ben joins fellow newbies Alexandra Shipp (Storm), Sophie Turner (Jean Grey) and Sheridan (Cyclops) in the superhero franchise. They’ll be welcomed by a returning star-studded cast including James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult and Evan Peters.
Get to know this sexy little twunk in several shirtless photos below. X-Men: Apocalypse is scheduled to hit theaters on May 27, 2016.
The upcoming Season 20 of Dancing With The Stars marks the tenth anniversary of the popular dance competition. To mark the milestone, producers have fashioned a brand spanking new gold mirrorball trophy to give to the winner. Personally, I prefer the original one. The gold one looks a little tacky.
So who’s in the running? It’s not the most star-studded cast, but it’s an interesting one. The NFL’s first openly-gay player Michael Sam along with double amputee motivational speaker Noah Galloway provide the eye candy for the Spring 2015 edition. Fingers crossed that their respective female pros put them in very revealing outfits often.
Suzanne Somers and Patti LaBelle are representing for the veterans while Hunger Games actress Willow Shields checks in for the tween demo. Shields, at 14-years-old, is the youngest ever to compete on the show. For me, the addition of Rumer Willis is the most fascinating. I never thought I’d see Bruce Willis or Demi Moore in the audience, but they may just pop up to support their daughter.
The odds-on favorite to take Season 20 is Olympian Nastia Liukin. Athletes have a great track record on the show. To boot, she’s partnered up with the winningest pro, Derek Hough. He wasn’t supposed to take part this season, but the powers-that-be made it happen last minute. Speaking of Hough, his cousin, Riker Lynch, is also one of the stars strapping on their ballroom shoes. Check out the entire cast below, along with watching the reveal on Good Morning America.
Hedwig and the Angry Inch initially was to end after Neil Patrick Harris’ run but has enjoyed healthy ticket sales even after Harris’ departure. It’d be silly to close down the Tony-winning production now.
Andrew Rannells, Michael C. Hall and the musical’s co-creator and its original star, John Cameron Mitchell, have all stepped in to take on the titular role since. In April, the production will see another cast rotation. Find out which Glee actor is playing the East German transgender singer next.
