Although it was rumored that Tom Hiddleston was being eyed for the leading role in director Timur Bekmambetov's upcoming remake of 'Ben-Hur,' it seems the epic redo has found its leading man: 'Boardwalk Empire' star Jack Huston. Oh, sorry, guess you might not recognize him unless he's missing half of his face.
Right before Comic-Con 2014, rumor had it that Marvel wanted Joaquin Phoenix to play the leading role in their 'Doctor Strange' film -- which was some pretty magical timing, all things considered. Since then, we haven't heard a peep, and now comes word that the studio has their eye on another possible leading man: 'Boardwalk Empire' star Jack Huston, whom you might not recognize unless he's missing half of his face.
And so another season of 'Boardwalk Empire' has been lain to rest, bringing with it a few expected character deaths, and even more surprising survivals. Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi) will have a world of new troubles for the HBO prohibition drama's upcoming fifth year, but what do cast and crew have to say of the shocking turnout of season 4 finale "Farewell Daddy Blues?"
Due to the size of the screens and budgets, most television auteurs (Aaron Sorkin, David Milch, Louis C.K.) are writers first and directors second, if at all. In contrast, David Chase, the creator of the watershed series 'The Sopranos' and now the impressive feature 'Not Fade Away,' is the total package. His dialogue is always outstanding -- and the rat-a-tat back-and-forth of a New Jersey Italian family in turmoil will sound mighty familiar to 'Sopranos' fans -- but he's also a naturally gifted visual storyteller, equally at home speaking through images instead of words.
