Fish Mooney Will Resurface on ‘Gotham’ Season 2

Jada Pinkett Smith as Fish Mooney in Gotham

Surely you didn’t think Gotham had seen the last of Fish Mooney, did you? Sure, the vixenish villainess got a dramatic sendoff at the end of season one — but in superhero shows, as in superhero comics, no character ever really stays gone if they’re popular enough. And so Jada Pinkett Smith is set to return as Fish Mooney in season two, as revealed today. Read More »

Rebecca Ferguson Movie

Last summer, Rebecca Ferguson became the actress everyone wanted for their movies after proving to be a tough, sexy spy in Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation. She’s got plenty of projects coming out over the next couple of years, and now she’s lined up a sci-fi project that will reunite her with the Mission: Impossible producers.

Rebecca Ferguson has been set to star in Life, a sci-fi flick set up at Skydance’s David Ellison and Dana Goldberg producing along with Bonnie Curtis and Julie Lynn. And the good news is that it’s an original sci-fi story, not an adaptation or a remake. Find out more about the new Rebecca Ferguson movie below. Read More »

The Finding Nemo sequel Finding Dory hits theaters in just a handful of months and we haven’t seen much. Because Pixar Animation Studios operates almost completely off the grid in Emeryville, we often don’t find out about some of the voice cast until the month or so before release.

But every once in a while an actor slips up and reveals themselves as part of a new Pixar animated feature. This time the actor is Golden Globe-nominated actor Michael Sheen (Kingdom of Heaven, The Queen, Masters of Sex). Hit the jump for more on the Michael Sheen Finding Dory casting.

Fifty Shades Darker inherited its two leads from the last installment of the nascent BDSM franchise, Fifty Shades of Grey, but it’s got some new characters to introduce as well. The first addition to the sequel cast is Kim Basinger as Elena Lincoln, sort of the Mrs. Robinson to Christian Grey’s Ben Braddock. But kinkier, of course, because Fifty ShadesRead More »

A few days ago, it was announced that Straight Outta Compton star Corey Hawkins was set to lead 24: Legacy, Fox‘s reboot/continuation of their infamous real-time action series. His casting came with an additional note – he would soon be joined by a female co-lead to help him make those tough calls about whom to kill and maim in the name of a not-blown-up United States. New name or not, 24 is gonna 24.

Joseph Fiennes Playing Michael Jackson

UPDATE: We have been informed that this project isn’t a full TV movie but rather a half-hour comedy special for British television. However, that doesn’t make this sound any better. Our original story follows.

There’s a lot of controversy surrounding the lack of diversity among the Academy Award nominees this year, so much that The Academy is going to be making some changes to how membership and voting works. You would think that would be enough for filmmakers to start making better casting choices that allow for more diversity, but a certain production outfit across the pond doesn’t seem to care as evidenced by a recent casting decision.

A new report reveals that Shakespeare in Love and American Horror Story star Joseph Fiennes, a white actor, will be playing African American pop star Michael Jackson in a decidedly weird movie that takes place after the terrorist attacks of 9/11. Find out more below. Read More »

Woody Allen Amazon Series

Last summer, a few months after we learned writer/director Woody Allen would be taking his first TV series to Amazon, the filmmaker revealed that the deal was giving him some serious anxiety and even said, “It was a catastrophic mistake. I don’t know what I’m doing. I’m floundering. I expect this to be a cosmic embarrassment.” But at least the director has two stars for his series now

Chart-topping singer and former Disney Channel star Miley Cyrus seems to be Woody Allen’s latest muse, as the actress has confirmed taking a lead role in the series. But perhaps more interesting is the addition of actress and filmmaker Elaine May to the Woody Allen Amazon series. Find out more below. Read More »

24 legacy lead

Television shows never die anymore – they just take breaks. 2014’s 24: Live Another Day limited series may have officially closed out the story of Kiefer Sutherland’s indefatigable and unforgivable government agent Jack Bauer, but it certainly didn’t mean the end of 24. Like clockwork, a new series, titled 24: Legacy, was just announced a few weeks ago and today, we’ve learned that Straight Outta Compton and The Walking Dead star Corey Hawkins has been cast in the lead role.
