Casting and TV Show News

Emma Watson - Belle

A lot of breaking news stories today, the first one being that Hermione herself has been cast in a live action version of Beauty and the Beast.  Emma Watson will be playing none other than Belle, which is a great role for her.  Watson let fans know on Facebook:

“I’m finally able to tell you… that I will be playing Belle in Disney’s new live-action Beauty and the Beast! It was such a big part of my growing up, it almost feels surreal that I’ll get to dance to ‘Be Our Guest’ and sing ‘Something There’. My six year old self is on the ceiling – heart bursting. Time to start some singing lessons. I can’t wait for you to see it. Emma xx”

I get very excited when I hear that an actor is excited for their role, that always makes me very happy and hopeful.  The movie will be directed by Guillermo del Toro, no word yet on who will be playing the Beast.


In other casting news The Doctor himself has been cast as a villain in the upcoming Jessica Jones TV series on Netflix.  David Tennant will be playing Killgrave who is one of the main villains.  The creators of the show are very excited to have him on board.  Jessica Jones will be played by Krysten Ritter.


In TV show news, Fox is in negotiations with Marvel about creating an a live action X-Men TV show.  While Fox does own the right to the X-Men franchise, the fully extent of the rights are not known.  It is not shocking to see Fox jump on the live action show bandwagon since Marvel has had success with Agents of SHIELD.

Nothing is set in stone, we would not see the show before 2016, but they are hopeful for the show.  Especially since Fox has had such great success with Gotham, some of the people from 24 and Star Trek 3 are being names as producers and writers on the show.

I would love to see a live action X-Men show, it would be interesting to see which of the comics they would use and what storylines they would use.  It could be really interesting because there are a lot of great stories to choose from.  With the younger cast they have for the movies they could start off with a some of the earlier storylines. That is if it will be the same cast from the movies, but that would be absolutely awesome, since it is an ensemble cast, they could very easily rotate people.  I am curious to see what happens with this development.

Those are all the new stories that broke out today, but it was a great day for news.  We will do our best to keep you up to date will all of these stories and more.

Some of our favorite stars at the Oscars

441098-oscars-2014-red-carpet-moments-jennifer-lawrencejennifer lawrence fall

The amazing Jennifer Lawrence our Katniss Everdeen, young Mystique, and everyone’s imaginary best friend.   I love this dress on her she looks absolutely amazing.  She is wearing Dior, which happens to be one of my favorite designers.  Of course being that she is J-Law she fell again, this time it was getting out of the car.  As you can see in the picture there was a horrible orange cone in her way.  Nick Hoult aka young Beast being the good boyfriend that he is, was there to help pick her up.


Chris Evans the handsome Captain America we’ll just forget that he as Johnny Storm at one point.  What man does not look good in a tux?  He stuck to the traditional look which I love, the only thing I am not feeling it all the beard.  I am not a huge fan of beards to begin with so for me that is the only thing I don’t like about his look.


Amy Adams the current Lois Lane, while she might have been an eh Lois Lane (that could have been the scripts fault) you cannot deny that she stuns on the red carpet.  I absolutely loves this blue Gucci dress.  I love how she let the dress be the showcase by not adorning much jewelry.


Benedict Cumberbatch the amazing Sherlock Holmes, was attending the Oscars for the first time.  He looks quite dapper in his tux, but did we expect anything less.  I love how he chose the classic look, which you can never go wrong with. This photo had to be taken before he was photobombing U2.

86th Annual Academy Awards - Show

Sally Field who had taken on the role of Aunt May in the Amazing Spider-Man series.  I do love her look, she looks so elegant.  That dress looks great on her, I love the details on the dress and let’s be fair black looks great on everyone.


Christian Bale aka Batman (until the Superman Batman movie comes out Christian Bale is still Batman), while this does not give a full pic of his tux, he looks good.  I have never not seen Christian Bale not look good in a tux.  As with Chris Evans I am not feeling the whole beard thing.  I didn’t like the whole beard look on him in the Dark Knight Rises.


To compliment Christian Bale we have the lovely Anne Hathaway the most recent Selina Kyle.  I am normally a fan of what she wears but I could not get behind this dress.  While the pictures does not look all that bad, when she was on stage presenting, her dress was flashing so much it needed to come with an epilepsy warning.  This was just not a great look from Gucci.


Emma Watson the know it all Hermione, is usually much bolder when she picks her gowns.  Do not get me wrong I do like this dress and it does fit her really well.  Compared to what Emma normally wears it is rather dull in comparison.  In some ways this Vera Wang dress almost ages her instead of compliment her youthfulness.


Joseph Gordon-Levitt, the new Batman well at least according to Dark Knight Rises, looked great in his tux.  I have not seen any of the guys look bad in any of the tuxs.  JGL is pulling off his Calvin Klein tux rather well.

cate blanchett oscars

Cate Blanchett the lovely Galadriel in the LOTR /Hobbit series, who took home an Oscar last night.  Cate looked great on the red carpet in this Armani Prive gown.  While I am not a huge fan of all the flower like adornments on the dress, I do like the sequins and Swarovski crystals on the dress.  I do appreciate her earrings because they add to the dress instead of take away from it.

chris hemsworth oscars

The sexy lion Chris Hemsworth (that is at least what our lovely Patty calls him) aka Thor, looks great in his David August tux.  While I am usually not a fan of multicolored tuxs, I will admit I am a fan of the classic black, but I like the burgundy jacket and vest on him.

idina menzel oscarsidina menzel oscar

Idina Menzel the voice of Elsa in Frozen, while she only did a voice I had to include her because well Frozen won for Best Animated Feature and Best Song, which she sung last night.  I love this dress on her, it is so flattering.  I just love the color and her perfectly accented frosting.  I was so happy to hear her sing ‘Let It Go’ last night and she wore an amazing dress for that as well.  I love a well done nude dress.

Michael B. Jordan oscars

Michael B. Jordan the new Johnny Storm, well I have to say he look quite good in his tux.  He chose the classic look, which no man can go wrong with.  I am not sure how I feel about his shoes though, what is going on there?

jeremy renner oscars

Jermey Renner otherwise known as Hawkeye, looks very handsome in his tux.  I will admit I am more of a tie kind of girl then a bow tie kind of girl, so the white bow tie is the only thing I don’t like about this look.  It’s really not enough to make me hate it either.

jamie foxx oscars

Jamie Foxx, Electro in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, look very handsome in his tux.  I have never seen Jamie Foxx not look good in a tux so it was no surprise that he looked good.  Jessica Biel also looked great presenting with him, she does get a mention because she was Whistler’s daughter in the third Blade movie.


For our last one Michael Fessbender the lovely young Magneto, he looked great in his tux, he stuck to the classic look.  While he does look good with a beard, I am just not a fan of them.  I do appreciate that he took him mom with him instead of his girlfriend so he gets major props for that.
