“Glee” and “American Horror Story” creator Ryan Murphy has assembled an all-star cast to help tell his HBO AIDS drama “The Normal Heart,” and we’ve got the first trailer.

Ned “prefers loud public confrontations to the calmer, more private strategies favored by his associates, friends, and closeted loverRead More
He couldn’t quite conquer Mars or battleships, so will Taylor Kitsch have better luck with a slightly smaller film? Canadian indie comedy “The Grand Seduction” was announced this morning to be premiering as a Gala at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival, and now we have the first images of Kitsch in something quite different from the attempted blockbusters of his recent past. The film, directed by Don McKellar and written by Michael Dowse and Ken Scott, who also wrote the original French film on which this is based, centersRead More

Taylor Kitsch heads for “Exit 147″

Looks like Taylor Kitsch has been given one more chance. After box office flops “Battleship” and “John Carter“, the actor has signed on to headline horror-thriller “Exit 147” which will be directed by Julian Jarrold (“Becoming Jane”) Bloody Disgusting (via The Playlist) report that the film is “about a man driving across the desert at night who is arrested by a small town sheriff (Kitsch) and held captive as part of his own sadistic game.” Both The Playlist and Bloody Disgusting use headlines that suggest Kitsch will be fighting theRead More
A list by Emiah Gardner If you’re a Hollywood follower, you know the drill. Small-time star has a bit-part in a big movie and suddenly goes wild. Soon, that star achieves A-list status and is able to choose any part he wants after paying his dues as a walk-on. Well, that’s how it used to be, anyway. With the growing number of movie actors who are TV actors and vice versa, it’s become kosher for TV and movie worlds to collide. In fact, some of the fresh-faced new A-listers areRead More
We thought Peter Berg’s Navy SEAL thriller “Lone Survivor” was all done casting, but apparently not. Deadline reports “The Hunger Games” star Alexander Ludwig has landed yet another SEAL role in the film, joining Taylor Kitsch, Emile Hirsch, Eric Bana, Ben Foster and Mark Wahlberg. Based on Marcus Luttrell’s book chronicling his own wartime experience, Kitsch will play Luttrell as “he and his Navy SEAL team members fought to stay alive after being ambushed in Afghanistan in 2005 by Taliban forces during a covert mission in the Hindu Kush mountainRead More
Looks like Taylor Kitsch‘s SEAL team is nearing completion as Variety reports that indie actor Emile Hirsch is in early talks to take the last lead, joining Kitsch, Mark Wahlberg and Ben Foster. “Lone Survivor” is an adaptation of the book by Marcus Luttrell, chronicling Luttrell’s own experience in Afghanistan. It follows Luttrell (to be played by Kitsch) as “he and his Navy SEAL team members fought to stay alive after being ambushed in Afghanistan in 2005 by Taliban forces during a covert mission in the Hindu Kush mountain region, whereRead More
Looks like the casting process for “The Hungers Games” sequel “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” is still underway, as reports today confirm that no-one has yet been cast in fan favourite Finnick – and those rumours around Armie Hammer and Garrett Hedlund are in “no way true”. Taylor Kitsch already took himself out of the running, and despite reports that director Francis Lawrence had “his mind set on” Hammer, Nina Jacobson, one of the producers for the sequel has told 24 Frames that things are “not narrowed things down byRead More
No, there’s still nothing official yet, but are we one step closer to meeting our Finnick? Lainey Gossip (she who broke the news of Jennifer Lawrence’s initial front-runner status for Katniss) reports “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” director Francis Lawrence has his mind set on Armie Hammer to play the dashing District 4 tribute and fan favorite Finnick Odair and that “if he could start tomorrow with his dream cast, Armie would be Finnick”. But don’t celebrate just yet, ArmieForFinnick supporters. The difference between Lainey’s report this time and theRead More
It’s just about that time. With “The Hunger Games” sequel “Catching Fire” set to film this fall (and rehearsals beginning as soon as July), fans – us included – have been waiting with baited breath to hear news of who will be joining Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth and the rest of Panem’s citizens, with one character at the forefront of everyone’s minds: Finnick Odair, the handsome, charming District 4 victor who becomes one of Katniss’s most trusted allies throughout the two remaining sequels. Today, E! Oline reveals thatRead More
We’re just a couple of months away from the release of one of our most anticipated films of the year, and today we finally have our first look at the poster for Oliver Stone’s drug cartel thriller “Savages.” The trio of young stars, Taylor Kitsch, Aaron Johnson and Blake Lively are joined on the hyper colorful and dramatic poster by John Travolta, Salma Hayek and Benicio Del Toro, playing various friends and foes of the two pot-growing best friends, Ben and Chon, played by Johnson and Kitsch, respectively. Lively playsRead More
