As if he actually needs to say anything to get us all hot and bothered for this. I mean, seriously.

Charlie spoke out a little while back about how ready he is for this role, and was basically like Yeah, I got this. He’s speaking out again, and everything he says just sounds so hot!

Watch: Ben Affleck Talks Batman On ‘Late Night With Jimmy Fallon’

"I look down on the first comment...the first one just goes, 'Nooooooooo!'"
"I handle shit. I'm very tough."

Last month, when the world learned the shocking news that Ben Affleck has been cast as the new Batman in an upcoming series of new films, pretty much every person on Earth had something to say about his casting … except for Ben himself. Last night, during his appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Ben broke his silence for the first time and talked openly about his new gig as Batman. The video embedded above starts out with Ben talking very cutely about his children and then at around the 1:45 mark the subject of Batman is brought up and discussed. Ben talks about the criticism from fans online and offers a minuscule bit of insight about the new films directed by Zack Snyder (“It’s an incredible take on it … it’s something different“). Honestly, he seems to have a great attitude about everything and he has a LOT of time to get comfortable in his new role (the Superman vs. Batman movie won’t be out until 2015) — which is great — but it’s going to take me a while to be convinced that he’s the right man for the Batsuit. We’ll see. For now, check out this interview and see/hear what Ben, himself, has to say about the whole matter.

‘Glee’ Star Grant Gustin Has Been Cast As The Flash On The CW

Coming first to 'Arrow'

Back in July we learned that The CW was planning the creation of a TV series based on the DC Comics superhero The Flash and today we learn that Glee star Grant Gustin has been cast in the lead role as Barry Allen (aka The Flash). According to reports, Gustin will first appear as the superfast superhero in the upcoming second season of their other superhero TV series Arrow and then he will spin-off a series of his own. Gustin, as you Gleeks may know, plays a villainous Warbler on Glee so this turn as a good guy is a nice change of pace for the handsome young actor. More »

Justin Bieber Shows Off A Personalized Script For The ‘Batman Vs. Superman’ Movie

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?!?

So … late yesterday Justin Bieber posted a photo on his official Instagram profile where he shows off an alleged script for the so-called Batman vs. Superman movie that is emblazoned with his name on it (the photo also, incidentally, shows off The Biebs‘s new iPhone 5S — which hasn’t been released yet) prompting many to believe that JB may be suggesting that he is up for a part in the movie (folks are guessing that he may play Robin in the film). It’s impossible to tell from just the photo but the script does look like a real script … tho, Bieber does have the resources to have someone work up a fake script for him. Is Justin Bieber breaking big casting news with this photo … or is he just trolling us all because he can? More »

Julianne Moore Has Been Cast In ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay’ Parts I & II

Meet the President

Acclaimed actress Julianne Moore has just been announced as the newest castmember of the forthcoming sequel films The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Parts I and II in a role that might be considered spoilery to some. If you have not read the Hunger Games books and do not yet know what happens after the events of the second novel Catching Fire (which will debut in theaters this Fall as a film, as you should well be aware) then the role that Moore has secured in the 3rd and 4th films might be considered extremely spoilery. But, since the books were published years ago and the information is out there, I have to assume that this casting news cannot really be considered “spoilery”. Even still, I’ll keep the full information reveal below the cut. Click below to find out the role that Julianne will play in the Mockingjay films and rejoice! She is going to be amazing in the films.

Emma Watson Will Play A Bipolar, English Writer In ‘Your Voice in My Head’

Based On The Memoir Of Emma Forrest
Los Angeles premiere of A24's 'The Bling Ring'

Last night there was some kind of Harry Potter marathon on ABC Family, and I’m not gonna lie– I got caught up for a minute! I’ve mentioned before that I missed the Harry Potter movement when it first popped off, but I can’t wait to (one day) sit down and read the books… then watch the movies… then wonder at how I lived my life without them, LOL. Anyway, it was so fun to see young Emma Watson doing her thing, and it’s equally exciting to see the new projects she has lined up. After successful performances in movies like The Bling Ring and The Perks Of Being A Wallflower, Emma‘s taking on the role of Emma Forrest, a bipolar English writer who wrote about her journey and struggles in a memoir titled Your Voice In My Head.

Matt Bomer Responds To The ‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’ Petition

'I’m so grateful for the fans and touched...'

Yesterday we learned about a pretty hilarious petition on Change.org (which has now been signed by over 60,000 real, live people) to change the casting for the new Fifty Shades Of Grey movie. Like me, many of you thought it a little sad that– of all the causes in the world one might take up– folks had decided to bring ‘change’ about in this way. Oh, and there’s also the part where Charlie Hunnam is hawt and there needs be no casting change there. At all. Well, actor Matt Bomer was named in the petition as THE guy to play Christian Grey, and now he’s speaking out. Click inside for more! Oh, and since his name and hotness keep coming up, I went ahead and made a photo gallery above. He’s no Hunnam, but he’s definitely a cutie, lol.
