Grant is accused of murdering a female classmate he states he never knew. Episode seven in which he first appears, titled “The Next Week,” is set to airRead More
“Transformers” is moving on with a brand new cast of characters, but of course we need new incarnations of the archetypes that worked in the first trilogy.

Testing for these roles willRead More
Now that the circus of deciding who will be directing “The Hunger Games” sequel “Catching Fire” is finally over (in case you haven’t heard: “Hunger Games” director Gary Ross is out, and “Water for Elephants” director Francis Lawrence landed the coveted job), we can move on to more fun speculation about who might play some of the fan-favorite characters that begin showing up in the sequel. We could begin nowhere else but with Finnick Odair, the 24 year old former Hunger Games victor from District 4 who becomes one ofRead More
Hands down, one of our most highly anticipated upcoming movies is the long-gestating big screen adaptation of worldwide blockbuster musical “Les Miserables”. Australian actors Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe – both acting and singing heavyweights, well done, Tom Hooper – have been officially set for the lead roles of Jean Valjean, a reformed escaped convict and Javert, the by-the-numbers police inspector relentlessly on his tail, but there are plenty of other crucial roles to be cast. As Jean Valjean journeys through 19th century France with Javert hot on his heels,Read More
We already gave our suggestions for who should play Mia, the teenager who must decide to live or die after a car accident claims the life of her entire family in Gayle Foreman’s successful teen novel “If I Stay”, and now with the release of its sequel “Where She Went”, the first person narrative turns to that of Adam, the aspiring rock star boyfriend who stayed by her side and now must deal with the aftermath of her choice. With Brazilian director Heitor Dhalia taking the reins on an adaptationRead More
With the firestorm of Jennifer Lawrence officially confirmed for the starring role of Katniss Everdeen in Gary Ross’s adaptation of “The Hunger Games” dying down, attention has quickly shifted to who will play Katniss’s support group, most importantly her rival, partner and love interest in the games, Peeta Mellark, and Gale Hawthorne, her best friend back home and the third point in the inevitable love triangle. THR reports that for the role of Peeta, actors Hunter Parrish, Alexander Ludwig, Josh Hutcherson, Evan Peters and Lucas Till tested opposite Lawrence lastRead More
