tom-hardy-leaves-suicide-squad

DC Comics’ upcoming Suicide Squad boasts an all-star cast that includes Jared Leto, Will Smith, Viola Davis, Jai Courtney, Cara Delevingne and Jesse Eisenberg. A few days ago, that list included Tom Hardy. It appears though, the 37-year-old is backing out of the project.

The Hollywood Reporter reveals Hardy will no longer play Rick Flagg due to scheduling issues. Reportedly, Alejandro González Iñárritu’s The Revenant co-starring Leonardo Dicaprio, is filming longer than initially expected. In addition, Hardy is committed to a grueling worldwide promotional tour for his next film, Mad Max: Fury Road. Find out who the studio is reportedly wooing to replace him below.

Ben-Hur Remake Finds Its Jesus Christ

Perhaps it’s my Catholic upbringing but I feel a little guilty saying this. When the Ben-Hur remake hits theaters, it’s going to be hard not lusting after Jesus Christ. Paramount Pictures and MGM has tapped a super sexy Brazilian actor to play the religious figure.

Rodrigo Santoro is the latest actor to join the star-studded cast which includes Morgan Freeman, Olivia Cooke, Toby Kebbell and Jack Huston. The latter steps into the role made famous by Charlton Heston in the 1959 epic that won 11 Oscars.

You might recognize the 39-year-old Brazilian actor from his roles in Love Actually, 300: Rise of an Empire and Charlie’s Angel: Full Throttle. He can next be seen in the upcoming heist film Focus co-starring Will Smith. If you need a refresher on what he looks like without a shirt, check a couple pics below.

I don’t watch too many cooking shows partly because I find myself getting hungry even if I have a full stomach. Masterchef, however, is the exception. Every Summer, I look forward to Gordan Ramsay, Graham Elliot and Joe Bastianich doling out their culinary knowledge to amateur home cooks.

For Season 6, Bastianich leaves his post. Though it’ll be odd to not have the original three back, it’ll be nice to have some new blood injected into the show. Especially from a woman’s point of view.

The network announced Christina Tosi will join Ramsay and Elliott on both the MasterChef and MasterChef Junior judging panels. Tosi is a cookbook author and the owner of New York City’s Milk Bar. Check her out below.

Fans of the ABC 90s cult hit were ecstatic when Showtime revealed their plans to resurrect the series in 2016 for the show’s 25th anniversary. With one of the original stars officially on board, this should put them over the moon.

Kyle MacLachlan is returning to Twin Peaks to reprise his much-loved character Special Agent Dale Cooper. The news was revealed during the network’s Television Critics Association presentation on Monday, Jan. 12. Series creator David Lynch then announced it via Twitter to the delight of everyone who enjoyed the show’s first run.

Jennifer Hudson is halfway to becoming a member of the prestigious EGOT club. The Dreamgirls actress already has a Grammy and Oscar to her credit. All that’s missing are an Emmy and a Tony. It appears the latter might be a possibility sooner rather than later.

Essence magazine reports that Hudson will make her Broadway debut this year in a revival of The Color Purple. Reportedly, she’ll play lounge singer Shug Avery. Oprah Winfrey who co-produced the original will return to oversee the new production. Jennifer’s fellow American Idol Season 3 alum Fantasia Barrino played Celie during the musical’s original run. How awesome would it be if they reunited on stage for the revival.

matt-bomer-monty-clift

It’s been long-rumored and now it’s official. Matt Bomer will play Montgomery Clift in the upcoming HBO biopic titled Monty Clift. If anyone can play the legendary Hollywood actor it’s Bomer. Both have the same stunning matinee good looks.

Clift was best known for his role in From Here To Eternity and his relationship with his A Place in the Sun co-star Elizabeth Taylor. During his hey day, Clift rivaled Marlon Brando and James Dean as one of Hollywood’s biggest male stars. Montgomery was one of the first actors to incorporate method acting and to refuse to sign a studio contract which was popular at the time.

“To see the kind of intense vulnerability and realism that he brought to his work at a time when that was not the style—it’s profound,” Bomer said in an interview last year. “He knew everything he was feeling inside—or if he didn’t, you wondered, why was he feeling that when the scene was this? To get to portray someone who was so formative to me as an artist would be terrifying and daunting and thrilling.”

His life was far from harmonious though. He battled alcohol and drug addiction which were amplified following a devastating car accident that left him with a broken nose and partially paralyzed face.

With Bomer on board, question is now who’ll play Elizabeth Taylor? Let’s hope it’s not Lindsay Lohan. Remember her much-maligned performance in Lifetime’s Liz & Dick. That was horrendous. Check out a shirtless pic of Clift during his prime below. Holy hottie!!!

John Travolta Lawyers Up For American Crime Story

Welcome back Kotter!!! Or should I say John Travolta. The 60-year-old actor books his first series regular TV role since his breakout turn in the classic 1975-1979 sitcom Welcome, Back, Kotter.

Travolta just booked a gig on American Crime Story. He’ll play defense attorney Robert Shapiro on FX’s new anthology miniseries. He’ll also serve as a producer on the project.

The 10 episode miniseries, airing on FX, tells the story of the infamous OJ Simpson murder trial from the perspective of the lawyers involved. It’s based on Jeffrey Toobin’s best-selling book The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson.

He’ll join David Schwimmer, who plays another Simpson attorney, Robert Kardashian, and Cuba Gooding Jr and Sarah Paulson who’ll take on Simpson and prosecutor Marcia Clark respectively. All that’s missing from Murphy’s own version of the ‘dream team’ is who’ll play Johnnie Cochran. Have any suggestions?

What do you think of Travolta’s return to television? Weigh in below.
