Joe Manganiello Doesn’t Mind Getting Nekkid On Camera

"It's just a typical day at the office."

It was announced a few weeks ago that True Blood star Joe Manganiello has been cast in the male stripper film Magic Mike and today we hear his thoughts on the requirement to strip nekkid on camera for the film. As you may know, Joe strips nekkid most weeks on True Blood so the thought of baring his bits isn’t too foreign a notion to him. Now, I wonder if that means we can count on some full frontal action … HMMM. More »

Bradley Cooper Will NOT Star In The Reboot Of ‘The Crow’

THANK GOODNESS !!!!!

After about a year of talk, serious traction on the planned reboot of The Crow seemed to take shape back in April when we learned that director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo was hired to helm the film which is SUPPOSED to come out in 2012. Apparently, actor Bradley Cooper was up for the role of Eric Draven/The Crow in this planned reboot but today we learn that he is no longer associated with the film. To that, I say THANK THE GODS!

The Deal is Still Being Finalized

Now that the judging drama that hounded the US launch of The X Factor is now a long-forgotten memory, the show can more forward with the business of bringing on big name music stars to beef up the show. Each week, a music star will come on to the show to mentor the contestants … and top on that list of stars is Mariah Carey. Simon Cowell is working to finalize the deal to have new mama Mimi on The X Factor as one of the mentors … but, IMHO, it’s pretty much a sure thing. More »

First Look: Reeve Carney Has Been Cast To Play Jeff Buckley In An Upcoming Biopic

The Film Remains As-Yet Untitled

For years, ever since rocker Jeff Buckley tragically drowned back in 1996, there has been Hollywood talk about making a biopic about his short but hugely talented life. Today we learn that Spiderman: Turn Off the Dark star Reeve Carney has been cast in one of 2 planned Jeff Buckley films. IMHO, Carney is a great choice to play the late singer … not only does he bear a striking resemblance to Buckley but he deffo has the musical ability to pull off the role successfully. I am so on board with this casting. More »

Behold: The WORST Looking Royal Family Movie EVER

Worst. Casting. Ever.

Back in March, to capitalize on the hype surrounding the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, we got our first look at the Lifetime TV made for TV movie William & Kate. That film told the tale of how the young royals met and fell in love. While I didn’t really think the actors looked very much like the real Wills and Kate, I didn’t think they looked so dissimilar as to look foolish. The Hallmark Channel is about to release their own Royal Family film and the casting is SO INCREDIBLY HORRIBLE that I cannot even consider the possibility of taking this joke of a TV movie seriously. Check out the promo photos and trailer below and I DARE YOU to try and see any similarity between the actors and the real people they portray. More »
