A few weeks back, we learned that Scott Frank and Steven Soderbergh’s new Western miniseries Godless has begun initial casting with none other than Newsroom alum Jeff Daniels, and the official report brings yet more good news. Not only is Daniels confirmed, but so too is Walking Dead alum Merritt Wever, a Game of Thrones member and more.
Just when you thought you’d lost count of the Netflix original series in development, here comes number … uh, moving on! Scott Frank and Steven Soderbergh’s new Western miniseries Godless has begun casting, with none other than Newsroom alum Jeff Daniels and Batman v. Superman bomb Scoot McNairy eyed for leading roles.
Whatever your take on Aaron Sorkin’s three-and-done HBO Newsroom, one can only imagine what the fictional ACN’s take on the current election cycle would have been. Imagine no further, as Jeff Daniels brings the Will McAvoy rant out of retirement for a meta-look at the clash between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.
In case you didn’t know (Shailene Woodley only mentions it twice), the next installment of The Divergent Series is heading beyond the wall, to see what lies outside the confines of Chicago. A new trailer for Allegiant promises that, if nothing else, things are going to get real weird, and real CGI-heavy when these kids diverge (get it?!) from their fortified city.
The 2015 Emmy Awards have already taken some wild swings, but everyone saw this one coming. After many years without recognition, Mad Men star Jon Hamm has finally taken home the statue for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama. He didn't even need to devise a world-renowned Coke commercial
We sure have been seeing a whole lot of images from The Martian lately — Ridley Scott’s new sci-fi film starring Matt Damon has been dropping images left and right, and we still haven’t even seen a trailer yet. The latest stills from the movie feature Matt Damon (of course) and Jeff Daniels, while a new video introduces us to the crew of the Ares 3, giving us our first look at footage from the film.
Much like the casting of Philip Seymour Hoffman in a key role for the final installments of The Hunger Games franchise, Lionsgate has cast another older, distinguished actor to play a crucial part in the final parts of the Divergent series. Jeff Daniels has joined the cast of Allegiant – Part 1 and 2 in a fairly important role.
After months of bumps in the road, Danny Boyle and Aaron Sorkin’s Steve Jobs biopic is finally heading into production. Universal has announced ‘Steve Jobs’ as the official and not-very-surprising title for the film, along with a full cast lineup and breakdown, as well as the official plot. It’s all happening.
A sequel to 1994’s ‘Dumb and Dumber’ seemed like a silly idea until ‘Dumb and Dumber To’ went and made $36 million in its opening weekend. Now, the sky is the limit for the aging idiots played by Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels and the thought of a third film (‘Dumb and Dumberer’ is not official canon) doesn’t seem all that crazy. In fact, the new film is already waaay ahead of you. If you stuck around through the end credits of ‘Dumb and Dumber To,’ you already know that the post-credits scene teases a theoretical third entry in the series.
This week we learned that Jennifer Lawrence opted to have her cameo cut from 'Dumb and Dumber To' for reasons that may become clear to you depending on how you feel when you see the film for yourself (or it may disappoint you if you end up enjoying it, like our own Mike Ryan). But there's one cameo that did remain in the film, and although it's a pretty big one, audiences won't be able to recognize the actor -- much like Cate Blanchett's cameo in 'Hot Fuzz.' The clip is now online and labeled merely as "Old Apartment," with nothing about the notable cameo mentioned at all.
