RIDLEY SCOTT’S ROBIN HOOD STARTS SLINGING ARROWS

Wednesday, March 25 by

Universal Pictures has announced that Ridley Scott's Robin Hood project – once of many names, now dubbed… Robin Hood – has finalized its supporting cast, and has started shooting in foggy London town.  "Joining Crowe and Blanchett for the film are Oscar® winner Vanessa Redgrave (Julia, Atonement) as John and Richard’s mother, Queen Eleanor of Aquitaine; Mark Strong (Body of Lies, Stardust) as King John’s vicious henchman, Sir Godfrey; Oscar Isaac (Che, Body of Lies) as King John; and Léa Seydoux (13 French Street, upcoming Inglourious Basterds) as the woman who will become queen, French Princess Isabella. Playing key members of Robin’s band of men are Scott Grimes (television’s ER, American Dad) as Welshman Will Scarlet; Kevin Durand (upcoming X-Men Origins: Wolverine, 3:10 to Yuma) as Robin’s right-hand, Scotsman Little John; and newcomer Alan Doyle as their troubadour, Irishman Allan Adayle."Read the full press release after the jump.  In the meantime, here's some of the morning's headlines:The Truth Behind the REAL Haunting in Connecticut (Dread Central) Tom Hanks brings action figure to life in "Major Matt Mason" (Variety) Dennis Quaid will play Bill Clinton alongside Julianne Moore's Hillary and Michael Sheen's Tony Blair in HBO Flick (/Film) Alex Proyas called possibility of Crow remake "ridiculous" (IGN)

LET’S NOT NEGLECT THE ORPHAN TRAILER

Tuesday, March 24 by

The trailer for The Orphan has been hanging out on the 'nets for a little while now, and Screen Junkies have been feeling really guilty about not showing it any love.  It has tinges of The Good Son, as well as Joshua.  (It even features Vera Farmiga in an eerily similar role to the one she played in that latter film.)  But it could end up being a bit more supernatural than its predecessors…  Adopt your own thoughts after the jump…

STAR WARS’ AT-ATs: THEY MAKE GREAT PETS

Tuesday, March 24 by

Manchester-based photographer Nick Drummond has snuck behind enemy lines to uncover the secret life of the AT-AT Walker from Star Wars – and it seems like we might have been giving them a bad wrap.  I guess years of breeding have brought them down to a more manageable size, but I still wouldn't trust them around your Empire Strikes Back Rebel Alliance action figures.  They're still bound to get trounced like a mouse under a cat's claw. In his interview with the Star Wars blog, Drummond said:"I took a few photos before I handed everything on [to my nephew, as a gift] and noticed that the AT-AT was very photogenic. As it was getting on for Christmas I took a few more shots hoping to make one into a puzzle for a present. I was much happier with the results than I expected and the ideas just haven’t stopped yet. Turns out my nephew already has an AT-AT, so I get to keep ATilla."I'll bet Drummond's nephew never ever saw ATilla.  Check out a handful of Uncle Nick's handiwork after the jump.

But switch it over to Snoop, he's got the guys from 'Bizkit' talking about their long awaited reunion tour. More nookie after the break.

12 ROUNDS WITH ASHLEY SCOTT

Tuesday, March 24 by

This Friday, Ashley Scott will play the Damsel in Distress to John Cena's Prince Smackdown in the Renny Harlin-directed 12 Rounds.  She looks like she could take care of herself in a fight, but then Fox wouldn't have a movie, I guess. Where You've Seen Her: One of Scott's first roles was as "Gigolo Jane" in A.I.: Artificial Intelligence, then to TV as "Helena Kyle" in the Bat-Universe spinoff Birds of Prey.  She also played "Amanda" in Into the Blue (pictured above) and as "Emily Sullivan on the now-cancelled Jericho.   Fun Fact: At her first audition, she worked with Al Pacino.  She didn't get the role.  But when ju owdeeshun weet Tony Montana, you owditioneen wit de f**keen best!  So it all worked out.   See her photos after the jump!

She tells him that Juma and Dubaku are dead, that everything's over, and that Olivia has joined the staff. The first man is relieved. They hang up.Kanin walks in. "He's expected to make a full recover! Maybe, just maybe this day will end on a positive note," says President Taylor.Yeah right.Kanin tells the President that Senator Mayer has been apparently slain by Bauer.

This Friday, John Cena's gonna be kickin' ass, takin' names, breakin' necks and maybe cashin' checks if 12 Rounds doesn't gets squashed by the competish.  Why is Mr. Cena so riled up?  Well, in 12 Rounds, he's gotta go all Wrestlemania twelve times over to get back his girlfriend, Molly Porter (Ashley Scott) from the clutches of vengeful douchebag Miles Jackson (Aidan Gillen).  Ahhh, the old Damsel in Distress blunder.  Don't these bad guys ever learn?  Nothing gets under a hero's skin worse than his leading lady getting bogarted by some goon.

Colbert Beats Out Porn Star “Serenity” for Space Station Name

Monday, March 23 by

An Associated Press report unveiled but moments ago that TV's Stephen Colbert came in first in NASA's online contest to name a new room at the international space station.  The name "Colbert" beat out NASA's four suggested options in the space agency's effort to have the public help name the addition. The new room will be launched later this year.Of course, this is what happens when you let write-in votes count, especially when week after week, Colbert has proven that his viewers will do anything that he asks them to do, especially if it means getting something named after their idol.  [Colbert's 230,539 votes] clobbered Serenity, one of the NASA choices, by more than 40,000 votes. Nearly 1.2 million votes were cast by the time the contest ended Friday. I think Serenity is a totally serviceable name, and I think the Wicked Pictures star whose name all the NASA computer geeks threw into the hat would agree.In fact, this whole thing makes me long for the days when NASA just named their spacecraft after porn stars.

JENNIFER BEALS TRADES LESBIANS FOR LIES

Monday, March 23 by

According to EW's Michael Ausiello, Jennifer Beals – she of The L Word – has joined the cast of Fox's Lie to Me.  I have to admit I'm going to miss all those L Word billboards and print ads with Beals and the girls in suggestive, nude positions, one of which I've shamelessly posted after the jump.
