Eyes up, Brody!
Adrien Brody has signed on for cuckoo bird director Tony Kaye's Detached. Brody will star as a substitute teacher who becomes attached to a teenage prostitute while working at a troubled school. He later gets in trouble when he shows a gay film in class in an attempt to teach tolerance. I'm going out on a limb here and guessing it was Victor Salva's Clownhouse.
Christina Hendricks also stars as a teacher and potential love interest who encourages Brody's sub to go full-time. Brody has proven talented in a number of complex roles but this may be his greatest challenge yet. Can you imagine trying not to look at Christina Hendricks's boobs all day, every day? That's a test of endurance even David Blaine wouldn't be able to pass. (The Playlist)
While talking with HitFix, Nicolas Cage eschewed the rumors that he hired a Voodoo Priestess to remove a curse from the set of Sorcerer's Apprentice. Of course he didn't hire a voodoo woman to remove a curse from his set. He hired her because she has the best weed.Check out these other morning headlines… Just because Tony Kaye wants to direct Mickey Rourke's script doesn't mean that Tony Kaye will get to direct Mickey Rourke's script.
