Anne Hathaway Joins The Cast Of Christopher Nolan’s Next Film, ‘Interstellar’

Good News-- Yes?

We’ve been hearing lots of buzz and casting news for Christopher Nolan‘s next flick, Interstellar. He was officially confirmed as the director, after taking the project over from Steven Spielberg. Then Matthew McConaughey was brought on to play the lead. As we all remember, Anne Hathaway took on the role of Catwoman/Selina Kyle in last year’s The Dark Knight Rises. And even if you weren’t a fan of her performance (I was) the whole move was kind of a big deal. It looks like Chris Nolan was digging her work for sure, because the director and Oscar-winning actress are teaming up again for Interstellar. Click inside for more!

Tim Burton Will Direct Christoph Waltz And Amy Adams In ‘Big Eyes’

The Movie Sounds Pretty Awesome

Ever since Django Unchained swept through my psyche, Christoph Waltz has become one of my new favorite actors. He picked up the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for the film and went on to further blow me away when he hosted Saturday Night Live. He can do no wrong! So I was psyched to hear that he’d been cast in Tim Burton‘s new film Big Eyes. Waltz will play alongside Amy Adams in a film based on the lives of two famous artists from the 60s who were best known for their paintings of children with large eyes, although the drama really began when they got divorced and folks discovered that one of them was a fake.

NBC Announces That Jimmy Fallon Will Replace Jay Leno On ‘The Tonight Show’

Jimmy Will Take the Reigns Next Year, Production Moves to NYC

Welp, it’s official, y’all. For weeks now there has been lots of chatter going around suggesting that Jimmy Fallon would be replacing Jay Leno as the host of The Tonight Show … and just this morning, NBC confirmed the rumors as true. Leno will leave the show in 2014 and Fallon will step in as the new host! To be honest, I don’t watch late night TV talk shows at all but … I greatly approve of this deal. Jimmy Fallon is amazingly talented (as evidenced by his fun week with Justin Timberlake) and I think he will make a great host on The Tonight Show. I’m also not sad to see Jay Leno go away so … it’s a win/win! More »

The Governor Will Return For ‘The Walking Dead’ Season 4

His 1 Season Stint Has Been Extended!

Great news for fans of The Walking Dead, David Morrissey has signed on to continue his role as The Governor in the upcoming 4th season of the show which is set to premiere later this year. Altho Morrissey had initially signed on to appear in just the 3rd season, it would appear that his popularity on the show has required that he be added to The Walking Dead as a series regular. None of this information is necessarily spoilery, I don’t think, but I’ll keep any further discussion about The Walking Dead (particularly the events that went down in the season 3 finale that aired Sunday night) below. Click thru to learn more about The Governor‘s return to The Walking Dead. More »

Hey Girl, About That Acting Hiatus ...

Last week we learned the HORRIBLY UPSETTING NEWS that Ryan Gosling is thinking of taking a break from acting but today we learn of a new rumor that may refute Ryan‘s plans. According to the British tabloid The Sun (not exactly a bastion of verity but …), Gosling is being considered for the lead role of accused murder/Olympian Oscar Pistorius in an upcoming planned biopic about his life. Absolutely NOTHING has been officially confirmed by anyone at all so it’s prolly best not to take this rumor as gospel but … if it turns out to be true, it looks like Ryan‘s plans to take a break from acting might not actually happen.

Alan Ritchson Will Play Raphael In ‘Ninja Turtles’

Cowabunga!

Late last month we learned that actress Megan Fox mended fences with director Michael Bay and accepted an offer to play the female lead role in the upcoming live action/CGI film adaptation of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Today we learn that a second actor has been added to the cast. Alan Ritchson (who previously guest starred on Smallville and will be seen in the upcoming The Hunger Games: Catching Fire) has been cast in the role of Raphael, one of the 4 ninja turtles.
