Fan favorite Warwick Davis was, for a day or two, the subject of rumors that he would appear in the next installment of Star Wars, Star Wars: Episode VII. Then, yesterday, he posted a YouTube video saying, yes, he was cast in the film.

Good news for fans of both the film and the actor. And this video he used to confirm the rumors is pretty cute, too. Davis has appeared in a couple of the other Star Wars installments, as both an Ewok, and as Wald in Episode I. But he’s best known for his tile roles in Willow and Leprechaun, as well as the starring role in HBO’s Life’s Too Short.

Welcome back to Star Wars, Warwick.

He played us all.

We’ve all been made to look as fools. FOOLS!

On Monday, Sylvester Stallone CLEARLY stated in an unintelligible Facebook post that, “We are preparing the film with the same passion and commitment as the previous two. We have confirmed Nicolas Cage, a master actor who gives a veneer intellectual group.” However, now Stallone tells Deadline that he “has no knowledge of Nicolas Cage joining Expendables 3.” Humnha-wha?!

What is going on with Sylvester Stallone? Just days ago he wrote in plain English a string of words that nearly made sense, only to pull the rug out from beneath us all. You can’t play with us like that, Sly. It’s bullying and it’s mean. To make up for this, I demand that an Expendables spin-off starring Nicolas Cage in multiple roles a la Adaptation. The technology exists! And if he’s not willing, can we take his face off and put it on another actor? That technology exists too!

Though you’d think she be sensitive about putting young children from third world countries to work, Angelina Jolie has secured roles for her adopted children Pax and Zahara in Maleficent. They’ll join their sister, Vivienne Jolie-Pitt in the villian-centric take on the tale of Sleeping Beauty in small, non-speaking roles. Shiloh also had an opportunity to appear in the film but reportedly was ”bored and not in the mood during the day her part was supposed to happen.”

Looks like there’s a Lohan in every family. (Us)

‘Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ Finnick Casting Rumors Are Hogwash http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/hunger-games-catching-fire-finnick-casting-rumors-are-hogwash/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/hunger-games-catching-fire-finnick-casting-rumors-are-hogwash/#comments Wed, 06 Jun 2012 19:50:38 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=249106 The role is still up for grabs.

After I devoured The Hunger Games series over a long weekend this past winter, I was hoping that producers would consider switching the character Finnick Odair up a bit for the Catching Fire adaptation. If they’re willing to turn him into a guy in just kinda okay shape with a bad shoulder who wears a pedometer, I’d be a shoe-in. Sadly these last few days it seemed like they weren’t going that route.

The Internet has been totes OMG about rumors that Taylor Kitsch, Armie Hammer, and Garrett Hedlund were the frontrunners to be cast in the sequel. The LA Times caught up with producer Nina Jacobson who poo-pooed this speculation.

“That’s the thing that’s crazy — people are like way ahead of where we are. We’ve not narrowed things down by any means. It’s funny to see how things can take on a life of their own.”

Good. So I’m still in this thing. Time to re-up at Crunch and learn to swim.

The upcoming adaptation of Mark Jude Poirier’s 2000 novel Goats has been gestating for a while now, but the movie finally has what appears to be an actual cast apart from already-attached David Duchovny. Despite the title, it has been confirmed that Goats is indeed not the sequel to last year’s documentary Babies, but about goats instead of babies. Actually, the movie is about a teenager to be played by Graham Phillips who attends the prep school that his father attended. Here the teenager is lucky enough to meet a father-surrogate character played by David Duchovny whose name is “Goat Man” for some reason. Oh, think of how much better the world would be if every young man had a father figure played by David Duchovny who goes by the name of “Goat Man.” Most of us had to settle for father figures played by Jim Breuer (he of stoner movie fame), who insisted we call him “Goat Boy.” Man, “goat” is a funny word, isn’t it? Goats!

Especially interesting is the casting of Will Arnett, who really seems to be blowin’ up after the beloved”Arrested Development.” Perhaps his being cast in Goats means we’ll get to see him add “goat” to his dance repertoire, which currently consists of “chicken.” (IndieWire)
