For a major new comic book property, FX’s X-Men TV series Legion has been curiously silent in recent weeks, following its first casting, and a few TCA updates. Now, showrunner Noah Hawley drops a huge X-bomb, as Dan Stevens, Aubrey Plaza and another Fargo alum have been tapped for the lead roles of Professor Xavier’s child David Haller, and support cast.
The cast for director Nacho Vigalondo’s ambitious new sci-fi project just keeps getting better — in addition to Anne Hathaway, Colossal also stars Tim Blake Nelson and SNL vet Jason Sudeikis, but the latest member of the cast might be the coolest yet: The Guest and former Downton Abbey star Dan Stevens has joined the lineup. Nacho Vigalondo, you had our curiosity, but now you have our attention.
Dan Stevens has quickly become kind of a big deal, and for good reason—the guy has immense charisma and superhero-quality good looks. After turning in great performances in The Guest and A Walk Among the Tombstones, the actor has been picking up high profile supporting gigs left and right. But his latest job is the biggest yet: Disney has chosen Stevens to portray the titular Beast in their live-action update of Beauty and the Beast.
Well this cast definitely sounds awesome. The upcoming rom-com ‘How to Be Single,’ which already stars the great Alison Brie, has just added a whole bunch of talented actors. Leslie Mann, Dan Stevens, Rebel Wilson, and Dakota Johnson have joined the film, which is based on the novel by Liz Tuccillo, the co-author of ‘He’s Just Not That Into You.’ Honestly, who even cares what this movie is or who it’s about, as long as we get to see something starring all these fantastic faces, right? Maybe.
Hollywood has been mining the seminal ‘1001 Arabian Nights’ for ideas for the better part of a century, borrowing characters, details and story beats from the folklore collection and weaving them into all kinds of movies. And for good reason: many of the tales collected within it are astonishing, reflecting a rich, complex society that is completely different from our own. It's the perfect gateway to Islamic culture and often the first step for students of literature who have exhausted what the western world has to offer. And now a bunch of white people are going to make a film version of its most famous story starring, you guessed it, a bunch of white people!
The guys who brought us the horror film 'You're Next' now turns Dan Stevens from the charmingly handsome gent on 'Downton Abbey' to a trained ex-military killer for 'The Guest,' and the new trailer makes this next effort seem like another home run.
The gents behind that horror hit 'You're Next' are back, and 'The Guest' trailer looks like the duo have another winner on their hands. We've already seen Adam Wingard (director) and Simon Barrett (writer) give audiences a fresh take on home-invasion slasher flicks, and 'The Guest' is another creative spin on classic horror tropes.
While the third series of acclaimed period drama 'Downton Abbey' won't officially premiere in the United States until January 6, U.K. viewers are still up in arms about the actor departure from the most recent Christmas special, one which could drastically alter the series. We warn readers about potential spoilers for the upcoming series, but what does ITV have to say about the shocking character exit?
