We are so close to an official announcement on “Star Wars: Episode VII” casting, we can all basically feel it in the air at this point. But before it’s made officially official, the trades are all out in force to toss out a final rumor or two that may or may not be substantiated in the end. The biggest revelation today, via Deadline, The Wrap and THR, is that Oscar Isaac may be among the names called when the announcement is made. Both THR and The Wrap reporters mention IsaacRead More
Daniel Radcliffe
Adam Driver introduces a rather dejected Daniel Radcliffe to Zoe Kazan as seen in the first released clip off of Michael Dowse‘s Toronto-set romantic comedy “What If.” Based on the play “Toothpaste and Cigars” by T.J. Dawe and Michael Rinaldi, “What If” follows a Medical school dropout named Wallace (Radcliffe) who has a bad luck of repeatedly ending up in failed relationships. However, that all changes after he meets and forms an instant connection with Chantry (Kazan), an animator and cousin of his friend Allan (Driver). The only problem isRead More
Tracks 2
Mia Wasikowska‘s Robyn Davidson may have left everything behind for the remote deserts of West Australia, but as seen in the new poster for John Curran‘s “Tracks,” it looks like she found some romance along the way. “Tracks” chronicles the true story of a then 27-year-old Davidson (played by Wasikowska), who in 1977 embarked on a 2,000-mile trek across the West Australia desert, with only four camels and her dog in her company. Davidson’s journey, which was shared a year later in a memoir she wrote for the National Geographic,Read More
We still don’t even have a cast (save for Adam Driver, probably and some other rumors) but according to a new report, we may already be only six weeks away from the official start of filming of “Star Wars: Episode VII.” Come on, Disney, what’s the hold up? Badass Digest reports that the JJ Abrams directed reboot/sequel of the most iconic sci fi film franchise of all time is gearing up to begin shooting on May 14th, in the sandy dunes of Morocco. The blog suggests the location will likelyRead More
It’s the season three finale of HBO’s “Girls” and as we all gather around our televisions with some popcorn, we hope that this episode, titled “Two Plane Rides,” will provide the characters we’ve come to love (and sometimes hate) with some action and progression. The episode beings with Hannah (Lena Dunham), who bumps into Caroline (Gaby Hoffmann) while checking her mail. Caroline reveals to Hannah that she’s having a baby with Laird (Jon Glaser), one of Hannah’s neighbors, which throws her for a loop. Hannah goes back to her apartment toRead More
The “penultimate episode” of a television show is the second to last episode of the season. The purpose of these episodes is to set up the finale, where everything that has been developing throughout the season will come to ahead.  Unfortunately,  not has been  developing in the third season of “Girls.” This season feels  aimless, with only a few plot lines moving at a very slow pace. However, in this week’s episode, titled “I Saw You,” we finally got some friction. Last week, Hannah (Lena Dunham) and Adam (Adam Driver)Read More
We’ve got Adam Driver as the villain, but who will be the Jedi to take him on in “Star Wars: Episode VII”? Variety reports it just may be one of these five relatively unknown young actors: Ed Speleers, John Boyega, Jesse Plemons, Matthew James Thomas and Ray Fisher. The trade doesn’t specify the character the five men are up for, but does call it “the lead role.” Plemons is the name we’ve heard before in connection with this specific part, and it appears he hasn’t quite locked it down yet,Read More
Have we mentioned yet how insane Adam Driver’s career is? Because it just got even more insane. Variety is now reporting that the “Girls” star is nearing a deal to play the villain in “Star Wars: Episode VII,” said to be “in the vein of Darth Vader.” His deal hasn’t officially closed yet, but it sounds like it’s getting closed, as the trade is confident enough to say he’s the first cast member unveiled for JJ Abrams’ sequel to the most popular sci-fi franchise of all time. Driver’s name hasRead More
Adam Driver’s career is insane. His latest conquest: a role opposite Andrew Garfield in Martin Scorsese’s long-gestating “Silence,” according to Showbiz 411, who heard the news directly from the director himself over Golden Globes weekend. Scorsese has been trying to make the film for over twenty years, but things are finally clicking into the exact right places for him to begin shooting soon. Last we heard, that was June 2014, but Showbiz 411 says “next summer.” It’s unclear if that was a typo or it’s really been pushed back aRead More
HBO knows you were probably watching the Golden Globes last night. Even though we probably would all have been happier if we watched the season 3 premiere of “Girls” (not to mention the series premiere of “True Detective”), it’s hard to look away from a trainwreck (*waves to Jacqueline Bisset*). No worries, because the premium network has decided to throw a freebie at everyone who have a GG hangover this morning and put up the first two episodes of “Girls” which aired last night. We were big fans of theseRead More
