CECILY STRONG ghostbusters casting rumor

While Paul Feig‘s new Ghostbusters will have four funny actors fighting ghosts in New York City, that’s where the similarities to the original film end. Of course, we know this time all the leads will be played by women (Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones, Kate McKinnon) and that their roles aren’t going to line up with the roles in the original film. We have an idea of what those roles are and now we have an idea of a fifth, key role in the film. A role that might be played by Saturday Night Live actress Cecily Strong. Read the latest Ghostbusters casting rumor below. Read More »

Joel Kinnaman in Robocop

Suicide Squad currently has a Tom Hardy-shaped hole, and over the past few weeks it seems every 30something actor not currently attached to a superhero franchise has tried to fill it. (Or at least been rumored to be trying to fill it.)

Now, at long last, it seems director David Ayer has finally found the right fit in Joel Kinnaman. More on the Suicide Squad Joel Kinnaman casting after the jump.  Read More »

Legend of Zelda netflix

Netflix and Nintendo are at work potentially developing a TV series based on The Legend of Zelda. The news broke last week and got video game fans salivating. Sure there was a short lived Zelda TV show many years ago, but a Nintendo property hasn’t been adapted into a big budget, live-action…well…anything since the early Nineties. And The Legend of Zelda has long been at the top of fan’s wish lists for a new show of movie.

But what is the show going to be? All we know at the moment is Nintendo and Netflix want a family friendly show with the aesthetic of Game of Thrones. Okay, but how old will Link be? Zelda? Which will be the main character? Is Ganon the bad guy? What story will they use? At this point, without a script or showrunner, all options are likely on the table.

Since most of The Legend of Zelda games are about younger characters, that how we went with our casting wishlist. We tried to pick actors who, for the most part, aren’t super famous but are age appropriate. Actors both in the box and way outside it. The resulting list features lots of people who you may or may not have heard of, but you wouldn’t be surprised to hear were cast on a Netflix show. That’s not to say we didn’t stretch here or there.

So below, we’ve got our own Legend of Zelda Netflix casting wishlist for Link, Zelda, Ganon and then a writer/showrunner/director type. Check it out. Read More »
