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.

nicole-scherzinger-cats

Before you get too excited, Nicole Scherzinger isn’t reuniting with the Pussycat Dolls. Although, it wouldn’t surprise me if she did in the future, if her new solo album flops like her previous attempt. Rather, the 36-year-old singer is joining the West End revival production of Cats. She’ll play “Glamour Cat” Grizabella for a 12-week run starting in December at London’s Palladium.

“I am really thrilled to be making my West End debut in such an iconic show and I couldn’t be more excited,” Nicole shared in a statement. “To have the opportunity to work with Andrew [Lloyd Webber], Trevor, and Gillian is a dream come true. I grew up listening to Andrew’s extraordinary music and was lucky enough, a couple of years ago, to record Cats’ beautiful song ‘Memory.’ Andrew’s score is breathtaking and I am truly honored to have been asked to take part in what I know will be a very special time in my career. I can’t wait to begin rehearsals.”

This isn’t the first time Scherzinger has performed songs from an Andrew Lloyd Webber musical. She’s previously sang songs from Phantom Of The Opera and Evita for various music specials. Check out the performances below.

7th-heaven-cast

Stephen Collins is best known for playing the patriarch of the Camden family on the long-running drama 7th Heaven. The 67-year-old actor is in hot water after a recording of him admitting to child molestation surfaced. According to EW.com, Collins has been fired from Seth MacFarlane’s upcoming sequel, Ted 2.

On the tape, Collins is heard confessing about an 11-year-old New York girl, specifically admitting to placing her hand on his penis and then exposing himself to her on other occasions. His estranged wife, Faye Grant, reportedly taped the admission during a therapy session back in 2012. In California, it is legal to record a conversation if the purpose is to gather evidence of a felony.

The New York Police Department is currently investigating Collins for alleged “inappropriate sexual contact” with at least three children. No charges have been filed yet. Listen to the taped conversation below.

After several attempts, it appears Paramount’s plans for a big screen adaptation of Baywatch is finally coming together. Over the years it’s gone through vastly different iterations ranging from serious fare to a screwball comedy and everything in between. With comedy writer Justin Malen rewriting the script and Sean Anders and John Morris, the team behind We’re the Millers and Horrible Bosses 2 directing, it appears it’s a straight comedy.

Don’t get too excited. It’s not another Harry Potter movie, although Daniel Radcliffe finds himself in another magical role.

“There’s a sequel to Now You See Me and we’re shooting in London,” Michael told Hey You Guys blog. “I shoot in December, the whole of December in London, and my son is Harry Potter. I thought it’d be funny, me and Daniel Radcliffe as father and son.”
