    Rhys Ifans Not In 'Bond 23,' But Is In Trouble With The Cops Following Brouhaha At Comic-Con

    According to a recent Brit report, Rhys Ifans was joining his "Enduring Love" co-star Daniel Craig in "James Bond 23." Well, you can scratch that. Asked by MTV at Comic-Con yesterday if he was in the film, Ifans joked, "No. I just have a license to kill," before confirming, "No I'm not," in the upco...

    Rhys Ifans Joins 'James Bond 23'

    Longtime Welsh character actor Rhys Ifans is finally cashing in on decades of great work. Perhaps best known for roles in "Notting Hill" and "Enduring Love," you've probably seen Ifans lately in films like "Greenberg," "Mr. Nice" or "The Boat That Rocked."

    Chris Pratt Joins Jason Segel & Emily Blunt In 'Five Year Engagement'; Rhys Ifans In Talks

    The last time we saw the names Jason Segel, Emily Blunt and Nicholas Stoller all together, it was for absolutely wretched "Gulliver's Travels." That said, the talent lining up for the Segel and Stoller-penned "Five Year Engagement" is proving to be promising, and if it lands anywhere in the ballpark...

    Martin Sheen To Play Uncle Ben In 'Spider-Man' Reboot

    Let Bartlett Be Bartlett Ben We're going to come out and say this now -- we're in an uncharacteristically optimistic mood about the "Spider-Man" reboot. Aside from the excellent middle chapter, Sam Raimi's films were fairly disappointing, so it's not like there's room for improvement. There's a sc...
