    Ruben Fleischer Says Michael Peña Has Also Joined 'Gangster Squad'

    Also Confirms Josh Brolin As Part Of The CastMichael Peña is a great actor who we've been waiting to fall into the right project after breaking out with a strong turn in "Crash." To be fair, he's chosen roles that seemed good on paper but just didn't deliver for a variety of reasons -- "Lions For Lambs," "World Trade Center," "Shooter," "Battle: Los Angeles," "My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done" -- but 2011 seems to find the actor on the uptick. He recently co-starred in the strong indie flick "Everything Must Go," this spring he was part of the sleeper hit "The Lincoln Lawyer" and he's got the comedy "30 Minutes Or Less" on the horizon. But n...

    Chloë Sevigny To Play An Irish Transsexual Assassin In New Miniseries

    Not many actresses would be able to recover from doing "that scene" in Vincent Gallo's "The Brown Bunny," but then again, Chloë Sevigny has hardly played by anyone's rules. She broke out in the controversial "Kids" and from there has amassed an impressive CV working with directors like Lars von Trier ("Dogville," "Manderlay"), David Fincher ("Zodiac"), Woody Allen ("Melinda & Melinda"), Whit Stillman ("The Last Days Of Disco"), Jim Jarmusch ("Broken Flowers") and Harmony Korine ("Gummo," "Julien Donkey-Boy"). And oh yeah, there was that Oscar nomination for "Boys Don't Cry" as well. She's also come on the radar of mainstream America with her ...

    UK's Guardian Doesn't Think Idris Elba Has Done Anything To Earn "Django Unchained" Lead

    "Love him or loathe him, Quentin Tarantino has always been able to cherry pick his actors, and it looks like his forthcoming Django Unchained project may be his most tantalising so far. Until recently there were suggestions that Will Smith was lined up to play the lead role of Django, an escaped slave who learns to become a contract killer and heads home to his old plantation to free his wife in the film's 19th-century deep south setting. The latest rumour is that The Wire's Idris Elba may play the part. Quite what Elba has done to deserve such elevation in a movie career that includes Fatal Attraction rip-off Obsessed and cheap supernatural ...
