When Mitch Glazer pulled together the cast for Passion Play, it seemed like there might be reason to pay attention: Mickey Rourke is a faded trumpeter who encounters what may be a real-life angel (Megan Fox) being held in a sideshow by Bill Murray. But the film was savaged at TIFF last year and is scoring only a limited NY/LA theatrical release on May 6 before it hits DVD on May 31. There’s a new trailer for the movie, which you can see below. Only the most die-hard Bill Murray fans need apply. Read More »

While many people find Megan Fox‘s performances in the Transformers films to be comedy gold, contrary to popular belief, they were not meant to elicit laughs. Her next major role could be, though, as she’s currently in talks to co-star in Judd Apatow‘s next film, a spin-off of Knocked Up that will feature Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann reprising their roles from the 2007 hit. Apatow is keeping the plot under wraps so there’s no word on who Fox will be playing, but there’s a good chance she’s not being cast for her mind. Read more after the break. Read More »
Here’s the first image of Megan Fox from the romantic drama Friends With Kids. It’s not a very exciting pic, but it’s notable for placing the actress squarely in a dramatic role, rather than a sexed-up mode. You might not remember details on this one; it’s the film featuring Jon Hamm, whose partner Jennifer Westfeldt wrote, and is directing, producing and appearing in the film. Adam Scott and Kristen Wiig are also in the cast.
The image comes from Megan Fox’s own Facebook page, which is also the source of a couple behind the scenes images that are after the break. Read More »
In her first big hire since Michael Bay decided not to ask her to return for Transformers 3, Megan Fox has scored a new gig. She’ll be in Jennifer Westfeldt‘s film Friends With Kids, which stars Westfeldt’s partner Jon Hamm.
The film also features Adam Scott and Kristen Wiig, and we now know that it “revolves around a pair of thirtysomething best friends who observe the toll that having kids has taken on the couples they know and resolve to bypass that stress by having a child and then date other people.” Adam Scott and Jennifer Westfeldt will be one couple, Jon Hamm and Kristen Wiig another, and Megan Fox will be a woman Mr. Scott’s character dates.
After the break, Andrew Niccol’s next gets another cast member, and Mr. Popper’s Penguins gets two. Read More »
We should soon start hearing about Mitch Glazer‘s film Passion Play, which screened for the first time last night right before James Gunn’s Super. Passion Play stars Mickey Rourke, Megan Fox and Bill Murray, and sounds like a messed-up carny-flavored romance. In the meantime, in the absence of a trailer, there’s a clip online, and you can see it right here. Read More »
As you know, Academy Award Winning screenwriter Diablo Cody (Juno) is hosting a new internet interview show titled “Red Band Trailer”, “the world’s first talk show conducted in an an airstream trailer.” Her first three guests were actor Adam Brody, Chelsea Handler, and Jason Bateman. In the latest episode, Megan Fox enters the airstream and talks with Diablo about moving to Hollywood and being an outsider, dreams about Luke Perry, moving to the Oakwood as a child, working with the Olsen Twins,the stress of fame, being typecast as the vixen/bitch, about being misquoted by the media and plays a product price guessing game. Watch it now, embedded after the jump.

Here’s another pack of new images for you. Bridesmaids may sound like a boilerplate matrimonial comedy to bookend the truly awful Bride Wars, but the film is from Kristen Wiig, Paul Feig and Judd Apatow. So barring any continued sense of Apatow fatigue (that is: hopefully the movie is under two and half hours long) this one might be a lot more than the title implies.
After that, we’ve got a pic of Jennifer Connelly and Ed Harris in What’s Wrong With Virginia?, a shot of Megan Fox and Mickey Rourke (above) in Passion Play, and Keanu Reeves and Vera Farmiga in Henry’s Crime, co-written by the director of Anvil! The Story of Anvil. Read More »

We’ve known for a couple months now that Victoria’s Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley would be taking over as the love interest for the third entry of Michael Bay‘s Transformers series, and have even got a few glimpses at her showing off her assets on set. But there still hasn’t been any explanation as to what her place in the film would be, or if her cleavage’s screen time would be able to compete with that of Megan Fox.
Finally, we have a little bit of insight into what character she’ll be playing. No word on the cleavage yet though. Learn more about Whiteley’s character’s affiliation with the Transformers mythology after the break. Read More »
