Jem And The Holograms Movie Casting News

In: Donovan, Movies
jem-and-the-holograms-movie

This is truly truly truly outrageous. The second I heard a live-action version of the classic 1980s cartoon, Jem and the Holograms, was in the works, I squealed like a teenage girl. The closeted boy that I was, loved watching the show as a kid. Jon M. Chu (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) and producers Scooter Braun and Jason Blum are the men bringing the project to life. Hollywood Reporter exclusively revealed the actresses playing the four main parts.

Landing the coveted role of Jem is Aubrey Peeples. You might recognize the 20-year-old actress if you watch Nashville. She plays Layla Grant on the ABC drama. For those unfamiliar with the story, Jem is the rock-star alter-ego of teenage orphan Jerrica Benton. Find out who have been cast as the Holograms below.

Madonna infamously portrayed the titular character in the 1996 musical Evita. Now it’s Christina Aguilera’s turn.

The Voice judge will take on the iconic role for a new revolutionary film titled Broadway 4D. The film will featured several high-profile names performing iconic tunes from classic Broadway musicals. It’s slated to hit theaters sometime next year. The 33-year-old will perform Andrew Lloyd Webber’s legendary “Don’t Cry For Me Argentina” for the project. Find out who else is involved below.

Meg Ryan Tapped As The Next Bob Saget

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Once again, Meg Ryan is playing a character named Sally. As any rom-com viewer knows, the 52-year-old famously played the titular lead in the classic When Harry Met Sally.

This time around, Ryan will voice the “future Sally” in the potential CBS sitcom, How I Met Your Dad. Greta Gerwig will play the present-day Sally. Much like Bob Saget in How I Met Your Mother, Meg will narrate the show and never be seen on the spinoff.

If the network picks up the series, CBS might not be the only place you can catch Ryan this Fall. She’s executive producing and starring in an untitled show for NBC. That series’ premise finds her as a single mother returning to a New York publishing house where she was once a top editor. Since she’s left, her former intern is now her boss. The show will follow Ryan’s character as she tries to balance her neurotic new boss with her teenaged kids, her soon-to-be ex-husband and his overbearing mother.

Do you think CBS was wise to cast Ryan in the narrator role? If not, who do you think should’ve snagged the role? Sound off below.

Is Gwen Stefani Joining The Voice?

According to TMZ, it’s a done deal. Gwen Stefani will be replacing Christina Aguilera on the seventh season of The Voice.

Even though the network had hoped X-Tina would return, the 33-year-old singer is taking another season off due to her second pregnancy. Reportedly, X-Tina is coming back for Season 8. If Cee Lo Green remains adamant about not returning, I’m curious which other judge X-Tina will be paired with. Might I suggest another female.

Stefani’s addition shouldn’t come as a surprise. Recently she resurfaced at Coachella pulling off a surprise cameo during Pharrell Williams’ set. The two performed “Hollaback Girl” which Pharrell produced.

As you know, the “Happy” singer also joins the singing competition next season, taking over for a departing Cee Lo. Both Stefani and Williams should gel well with regular mainstays, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton. Will those two ever take a break?

Is Gwen a good choice to sit in those red swivel chairs? Why or why not? Sound off below.

Hilary Duff Signs On For New Darren Star Comedy

Not that I wish singledom on any individual, but I’m sorta on board with Hilary Duff separating from Mike Cromie. It’s not that I’m not a fan of the retired hockey player. Rather, since their separation, Duff has slowly come out of her cocoon and started lining up project after project. She recently announced a forthcoming fifth studio album and now is staging a television comeback.

The 26-year-old just signed on to star in a new comedy for TV Land. Younger comes from the brilliant mind of Darren Star. The prolific producer is the man responsible for Beverly Hills, 90210, Melrose Place, the short-lived GCB and Sex and the City. The single-camera comedy is set to premiere Fall 2014.

“There’s nothing better than making a single-camera film comedy in New York — and I’m thrilled to be doing this one with TV Land,” Darren Star says in a press release. “Looking forward to working with our awesome cast led by my Broadway crush Sutton Foster.”

Jeremy Irvine Cast In Stonewall Movie

In: Donovan, Movies, Totally GAY!

The Stonewall Riots that took place on June 28, 1969 in New York are arguably one of the most important moments in LGBT history. Roland Emmerich who gave the world Independence Day, The Day After Tomorrow and 2012 is recreating those historic moments for an upcoming film aptly titled Stonewall. Emmerich might seem like an odd choice, but it’s a passion project for the openly-gay director. The film just signed its first actor.

Jeremy Irvine who starred in Steven Spielberg’s War Horse has been tapped to star in Stonewall. In his relatively short career, the 23-year-old English actor has built up quite an impressive resume. He’s appeared in Great Expectations with Helena Bonham Carter, The Railway Man co-starring Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman and The Reach with Michael Douglas.

Emmerich will start production on Stonewall while he continues prepping Independence Day Forever, which has a July 1, 2016 release date. Yup, there is a follow up to the 1996 Will Smith film. Check out more pics of Jeremy below.

Sorry Enlisted fans, it appears your beloved sitcom isn’t coming back. Two of the three brothers have landed a new gig.

Parker Young and Geoff Stults have been cast in a CBS pilot titled Cuz-Bros. The co-stars go from playing siblings to cousins. Maybe there’s a way for their other on-screen brother Chris Lowell to drop by during sweeps month should CBS pick up the series. Deadline.com reports that Nick (Stults) is a ladies’ man living in Los Angeles who takes in his cousin Barry (Young) who needs a place to crash.

Hopefully, the two engage in some shower sudsy time as they did on the FOX sitcom. In the off chance that FOX renews Enlisted, it has first dibs on the actors and their roles on Cuz-Bros would need to be recast.

Just in case you don’t watch the FOX comedy, check out the aforementioned shower scene below. If you haven’t cast your vote on our Who’d You Rather: Enlisted poll, click here.
