Paul Feig’s The Heat took a genre that has traditionally belonged to men — the buddy cop movie — and gave it a female twist. Feig’s new movie, Spy, does much the same thing, this time for spy films, a world that has long been by, about, and for dudes and their power fantasies. Spy explicitly subverts the genre’s typical gender dynamics by casting Melissa McCarthy as a lowly, desk-bound CIA analyst named Susan Cooper, who has spent her entire career in the shadow of a glamorous James Bond-esque spy (Jude Law) and then finally gets her opportunity to step into the spotlight and become a full-fledged field agent.

The spy comedy is a genre almost as venerated and beloved as the spy genre it mocks. There’s Our Man Flint, Casino Royale (the original Woody Allen one), Austin Powers, MacGruber, and now the simply titled Spy. It stars Melissa McCarthy as Susan Cooper, a desk-bound CIA officer who is sent out into the field for her first time after a fabulously well-dressed super-villain (Rose Byrne) learns the identities of every working CIA agent. Now the woman who’s always taken a backseat to her boss (Jude Law, the Bond to her Moneypenny) gets to step into the spotlight.

‘Knights of the Round Table’ directed by Guy Ritchie, is scheduled to open in July of 2016. It’s already got Charlie Hunnam lined up to play King Arthur and Astrid Berges-Frisbey as Guinevere. But there’s no Round Table without an evil square to battle against, a part that Variety says will likely be played by Jude Law, who is now “in negotiations” to co-star in the film.

'Dom Hemingway' Review

The story of ‘Dom Hemingway’ is a familiar enough one – a tough-talking safecracker endures years in jail, thanks to keeping a locked jaw when it comes to the involvement of his mastermind boss, only to be let loose to commit one last job and do right by his family – but Richard Shepard’s energetic and entertaining spin on what could be just another genre picture, along with star Jude Law’s bold and amusing performance as the eponymous antihero, make ‘Dom Hemingway’ a heist film with its own unique heart.

Jude Law Imitates Your Kid's Best Funny Face on 'The Tonight Show'

Last week, Jimmy Fallon asked his loyal 'Tonight Show' audience to send in videos of their children making their best funny faces -- classic kid antics -- without indicating exactly what said videos would be used for. Of course, this is Jimmy Fallon, so the news that the late-night host employed the videos for another one of his celebrity-baiting games shouldn't be too shocking.
