Xavier Dolan’s “Heartbeats” sealed the deal for me. I was hooked on his genius vision as a film director. Proving to be a true formidable talent to watch with “Laurence Anyways“, and recent release “Mommy“, which could be nominated for a 2015 Oscar award, Dolan’s next film, titled “The Death and Life of John F. Donovan“, will introduce Jessica Chastain in a role you’ve never seen her portray before- “a full-on b!t$h” tabloid editor. Also starring Kit Harington of “Game of Thrones” fame, this movie is already on my list of must-see films of the future.
I LOVE me some Ezra Miller. As a part of “Young Hollywood” today, he keeps his business private and let’s his work do the talking. From the moment I saw him in “We Need To Talk About Kevin”, I knew this young man was destined for an enviable film career. After watching “The Perks of Being A Wallflower” for the 100th time recently, I started to wonder what Ezra was up to lately. Well, besides starring in this Sophie Barthes’ film production of “Madame Bovary” alongside another young thespian whose work I love, Mia Wasikowska, the Amy Schumer/Judd Apatow collabo, “Trainwreck“, and the (personally) highly anticipated “The Stanford Prison Experiment“, Miller has signed up to portray Barry Miller/The Flash for a 2018 release in a stand-alone movie. The chances of the actor making an appearance as the superhero character in other upcoming movies such as “Batman v. Superman” and “Justice League” are highly likely as well.
So far, we also know that Greg Berlanti is attached to this project, whose name is also credited with the small screen version of “The Flash” starring Grant Gustin (who will forever remember as the deliciously evil “Campbell Price” from 90210). The television version is wonderful thus far, gaining great reviews, likely to be picked up for a second season, and was recently named as the most watched CW premiere EVER. EVER!
So, even though Ezra Miller would not have been the first actor to initially come to mind as a casting choice for this role, I am very excited to see the acting choices that he has decided to make as The Flash in the film adaptation. If the CW version is still going strong in 2018, I hope that Gustin and Miller team up for those Comic Con panels!
Jason Blum, Jon M. Chu, and Scooter Braun are not playing with their live action reboot of Jem and the Holograms. Let’s meet the main cast of the upcoming movie:
(From upper left, clockwise: Aubrey Peeples as Jem, Hayley Kiyoko as Aja, Stefanie Scott as Kimber, Aurora Perrineau as Shana)
The anticipation is real over here. I can’t wait to see who gets cast as the drummer, Raya, and The Misfits!
His face may look familiar to you, thanks to roles in “The Hunger Games”, “The Spectacular Now”, “Runner Runner”, and “Endless Love”, but I believe that his upcoming role as Danny Dyson in “Terminator: Genesis” will make Dayo Okeniyi a household name in the states. (John Boyega was a contender for this role as well!!!) He will join Emilia Clarke, Jai Courtney, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and J.K. Simmons in the anticipated action flick. He is one of my favorite up-and-coming young actors, so this movie just climbed up many ranks on my must-see movies of 2015.
The news of Keke Palmer being cast in the new season of “Masters of Sex” is so very, very delightful. I praised this show when I saw a sneak preview screening of it a few months ago and am due for a binge session because my time spent with this wonderful series has been short. But believe me when I say that you should give “Masters of Sex’ a chance and ever more so now before seeing the acting prowess of Ms. Palmer on it.
