Leonardo DiCaprio May Not Be Taking That ‘Long Break’ From Acting, After All

Producers Want Him For A Movie Set In The Great Depression
70th Annual Golden Globe Awards held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel

A little while back we learned that Leonardo DiCaprio was planning to take a ‘long, long break’ from acting. The actor spoke out in an interview about being completely drained after his last few projects, and said that he hoped to spend some of his free time working on environmental change. I was bummed by the news (having seen his brilliant performance in Django Unchained shortly before the story came out), but I’m also all for people taking time to themselves. Anyhoo, it looks like the break might not be so long after all, as he’s already being eyed for a new project. Click inside to learn more!

Michael Bay Forgives Megan Fox, Casts Her In ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’

... As April O'Neil?

Back in 2010, after Megan Fox had a few disparaging things to say about director Michael Bay in public, he fired her from appearing in Transformers 3 and made it fairly clear that he had no intention of ever working with her again. But oh what a difference a few years makes. It was recently announced that Bay will be helming a new big screen adaptation of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (ugh, I know) and just yesterday he announced officially that Megan Fox has been cast in the film. Because there is only one female lead character in the story, it’s believed that Fox will play intrepid news reporter April O’Neil — ally of the Turtles. It would appear that Michael and Megan have kissed and made up … and plan to work in concert to ruin another part of my childhood :/ More »
