Jon Foo in Tekken

Jon Foo is the new Jackie Chan. Well, for the purposes of CBS’ Rush Hour pilot, anyway. The British actor, stunt man, and martial artist has just been cast as Detective Lee in the action-comedy series, based on the 1998 film starring Chan and Chris Tucker.

Joyful Noise

Supergirl may have a new threat coming her way. Jeremy Jordan (The Last Five Years) has just been cast on the CBS series as Winslow “Winn” Schott, a tech guy who works with Kara in her civilian life.

Which sounds totally innocuous unless you’re familiar with DC Comics lore, in which Schott is the alias of the supervillain Toyman. More on the Supergirl Toyman casting after the jump.  Read More »

Ronda Rousey movie

It took Ronda Rousey all of fourteen seconds to defend her championship by winning her bantamweight title fight against Cat Zingano during UFC 184. Afterwards, it didn’t take Rousey much longer to sign for her next film. She’ll fight alongside The Raid star Iko Uwais in Mile 22, a buddy thriller that will hopefully only team up Rousey and Uwais after giving them a chance to show down in a scene or two.  Read More »

sharknado 3 president

Syfy has announced some new casting for Sharknado 3. It seems like this mockbuster franchise is increasingly being stuffed with celebrity cameos, some of which make little to no sense. (Much like the plot of these films, I’m sure some would say.) The latest casting includes Mark Cuban as the president of the United States of America. I’m a fan of Cuban’s and have been following him online for many years, and the reality television series Shark Tank has certainly brought him into the mainstream. The choice of right wing political commentator Ann Coulter to play the Vice President, however, seems like a move made to stir controversy.

spider-man-civil-war

As you’ve no doubt heard by now, Sony’s on the hunt for a new Spider-Man to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And since the last round of Spider-Man casting was just a few years ago, some fans have wondered if some of the guys who didn’t make the cut the last time around could have better luck this time.

Now a couple of them have gone on the record to respond. Josh Hutcherson says “of course” he’d consider playing Spidey, if only anyone would ask him, while Donald Glover plays coy about his odds. Read the Spider-Man Donald Glover and Josh Hutcherson comments after the jump. Read More »
