Bryan Cranston Has Reportedly Been Cast As Lex Luthor In The Upcoming ‘Superman Vs. Batman’ Movie

A Mastermind VIllain is Born

Now that we know that Ben Affleck has been cast as the new Batman (UGH!) in the forthcoming Man of Steel sequel that will feature both Superman and Batman, we need to turn our attention to other important character casting. According to a new report from Comic Book Movie (a report, I might add, that has NOT been confirmed as official), Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston has reportedly won the role of criminal mastermind Lex Luthor — the famed arch-nemesis of Superman. Altho this casting news has yet to be confirmed as true, it sounds pretty spot on to me so … in terms of Cranston‘s casting, I am thrilled by this news. More »

In Less Upsetting Casting News, Marion Cotillard Will Star Alongside Michael Fassbender In ‘Macbeth’

She's Replacing Natalie Portman, But It'll Be Fine

Today is a difficult day in the world of film casting news. Ben Affleck is the new Batman, and there’s nothing anyone can do about it. I, however, I am hear to bring you good tidings of great joy. A little while back we learned that Michael Fassbender would be starring in an upcoming adaptation of Macbeth. Since then we’ve seen him in two amazing trailers; one for 12 Years A Slave, another for The Counselor. Meanwhile my girl Marion Cotillard has also been cast in some promising upcoming projects including The Immigrant and Blood Ties. And now she’ll be joining Fassy as the new Lady Macbeth.

Ben Affleck Has Been Cast As The New Batman, The Internet Loses Its Shizz

Worst. Casting. Ever. Of EPIC Proportions

So … you may have heard by now that actor/directed Ben Affleck has been cast in the iconic role of Batman/Bruce Wayne in the planned upcoming sequel film to Man of Steel, which will feature Superman vs. Batman in the as-yet untitled film that is reportedly meant to launch a new era of superhero films for Warner Bros./DC Comics. IMHO, this is the biggest mistake ever. On the one hand, we have Ben Affleck: lauded and reasonably respected Academy Award winner. On the other hand, we have Ben Affleck: Razzie award-winning star of the flop superhero film Daredevil (not to mention Jersey Girl … AND GIGLI!!!!!!!!!!!). Honestly, because Batman is such an important character to me, I’ve been trying to be as positive as possible about this casting but I simply can’t get there … not yet, if ever :( More »

Kanye West Reportedly Turns Down Role As Judge On ‘American Idol’

Rumor Has it Dr. Luke is IN, will.i.am is OUT

Altho nothing has been confirmed by anyone just yet, we’ve been hearing that Jennifer Lopez has been offered a LOT of money to return as judge on American Idol for the forthcoming new season of the show. But talk of J. Lo‘s return isn’t the only Idol gossip going around. Apparently, Kanye West was offered a judging slot on AI but reportedly because of the “mainstreamness” of the gig, he turned them down. Additionally, we are hearing that music producer Dr. Luke may be in as judge … and will.i.am is out. HMMM. It sounds like American Idol is still having a devil of a time determining the judging panel for the new season … which sucks for them because interest in the show has been tanking in recent seasons :/ More »

Bradley Cooper May Star In An Upcoming Lance Armstrong Biopic

He's Already Producing The Movie

When the Lance Armstrong fallout hit the world last year, all hell seemingly broke loose. Once he admitted to Oprah that he used performance-enhancing drugs, we just knew the made-for-TV movies and biopics were on the way. And sure enough, within weeks, we learned about two different movies that were in the works. J.J. Abrahams purchased the rights to a book titled Cycle Of Lies: The Fall Of Lance Armstrong, and there was also talk about another film starring Jake Gyllenhaal. Now we’re learning that another Lance Armstrong biopic is in the works, and Bradley Cooper has signed on to produce and possibly star in the film. Click inside for more!

Lindsay Lohan Will Guest Star On HBO’s ‘Eastbound & Down’

She Shot Some Scenes Yesterday

Fresh out of rehab, Lindsay Lohan is not playing around. From her upcoming Oprah Winfrey interview/reality show, to her guest appearance on Chelsea Lately, the actress has been keeping very busy. I gotta say, I’m kind of impressed! If she can keep up this kind of work schedule, I feel like some positive changes could definitely be on the horizon for her. Yesterday LiLo took to Instagram to let the world know that she was ‘grateful’ to be ‘back @ work’ and now we know just what kind of work she was doing. Sorry Trent, it doesn’t look like she’s heading back into the studio just yet (but thanks for putting me on to First, lol). But she is coming to one of my fave HBO shows, Eastbound & Down.

Will Christian Bale Reprise His Role As Batman For $50 Million Dollars?

Will Hugh Jackman Reprise His Role as Wolverine for $100 Million?

Back in July, Christian Bale made clear once and for all that he will NOT be reprising the role of Bruce Wayne/Batman on the big screen ever again … just weeks before Warner Bros. announced that they will be featuring Batman and Superman in the sequel film to this Summer’s Man of Steel. Today we hear that Bale is being courted BIG TIME to change his mind and slip into the Batman costume again for a reported paycheck of $50 million dollars. Dang. Additionally, we also hear that Hugh Jackman is being wooed by his movie studio to keep playing Wolverine in future films to tune of $100 million dollars.
