Matthew Broderick has joined Annette Bening in the cast of FX’s “Katrina: American Crime Story.”

Broderick will play Michael Brown, the former head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency who was roundly criticized for the agency’s slow response to the devastation caused by the hurricane that hit the Gulf Coast in August 2005.

Bening was tapped earlier this month for the role of Louisiana Gov. Kathleen Bianco. The final death toll from the Category 5 storm was 1,836, most of them from Louisiana. The lack of preparation for such a fierce storm and the bungled federal aid and recovery effort became a black eye for the Bush administration.

In the first sign that Disney’s new take on The Lion King is motoring forward since it was originally announced, director Jon Favreau has taken to his Twitter feed to start announcing the cast for the new movie.

See related  Star Wars: Rogue One review Star Wars: how close were we to Josh Trank's Boba Fett film?

Favreau will be using the same techniques he employed to bring The Jungle Book back to the big screen last year for The Lion King, and that means performance capture and a broad range of voice talent. In this case, Donald Glover is to take on the role of Simba this time around, taking on the part from Matthew Broderick. Meanwhile, Simba’s father, Mufasa, is set to »

17 February 2017 5:49 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With Jon Favreau set to direct Disney's highly-anticipated live-action adaptation of The Lion King, the focus has now turned to casting. Jon Favreau himself has taken to social media to announced that Donald Glover has been cast as Simba, with James Earl Jones portraying his iconic father. It remains to be seen if the filmmaker will continue to make more casting announcements through social media, but it certainly seems possible. The studio hasn't announced when production will begin at this point yet.

Jon Favreau made these casting announcements on Twitter this afternoon, revealing who will play two of the most important roles. James Earl Jones will essentially be reprising his role from the original animated classic, where he also provided the voice for Mufasa. In the original animated movie, the young Simba was voiced by Home Improvement star Johnathan Taylor Thomas, while the adult Simba was voiced by Matthew Broderick. »

From the People Archive: Inside Nicole Kidman and Lenny Kravitz’s Love Story

Nicole Kidman just revealed she was once engaged to rocker Lenny Kravitz, telling The Edit that she was quietly betrothed to the father of her Big Little Lies costar Zoë Kravitz years ago. The actress and musician dated in 2003, and People covered their under-the-radar romance in this vintage cover story below:

One thing you can say for Nicole Kidman: The woman knows how to keep a secret. Throughout the summer, the Oscar-winning actress dismissed inquiries of a romance with rocker Lenny Kravitz with “we’re-just-friends” denials. Yes, she was renting his apartment, but please don’t get the wrong idea. »
