When you meet Bobby Cannavale in person, he’s very friendly, but you quickly get the sense that he doesn’t put up with nonsense. Not that Cannavale doesn’t have a sense of humor—he uses this humor to great effect in the upcoming ‘Annie’ remake; playing a political strategist named Guy who is in charge of William Stacks’ (Jamie Foxx) New York City mayoral campaign; spoiler alert: they meet a little girl named Annie (Quvenzhané Wallis)—it’s more that he doesn’t really like to do the things that actors have to do when they are not acting … like putting up with someone like me while I ask him questions.

When Edgar Wright left Marvel’s ‘Ant-Man’, many wondered if the superhero film would ever happen. Peyton Reed was hired to direct from a retooled script by Adam McKay and the film is still on track for its original release date, so everything worked out OK in the ‘Ant-Man’ world but, it almost didn’t work out that way.
