It was reported last week that Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black), Felicity Jones (The Amazing Spider-Man 2), Rooney Mara (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) and Kate Mara (The Fantastic Four) were testing out for roles in Gareth Edward’s Star Wars spin-off. Well, the folks over at Total Geek seem to found out who got the part.
According to the website, Maslany landed a role in the movie. There are no details of her character (if she has one), but confirms that this is for the 2016 spin-off and not Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Perhaps coincidentally, Maslany has recently pulled out from doing an Off-Broadway show due to “scheduling conflicts”.

We have long known that this year's Star Wars: The Force Awakens kickstarts a whole new trilogy, to be followed by Star Wars: Episode VIII and Star Wars: Episode IX, not to mention new spinoff movies. It has long been assumed that Disney is aiming for a 2017 release for Star Wars: Episode VIII and a 2019 debut for Star Wars: Episode IX, but now we have confirmation from Disney CEO Bob Iger himself. David Gremillion from Get Your Geek On is a Disney stockholder, who received an annual report from the company that included this quote from Bob Iger, which confirms a 2017 release for Star Wars: Episode VIII and a 2019 debut for Star Wars: Episode IX, and that the Untitled Gareth Edwards Directed Star Wars Spin-Off will hit theaters at some point in 2016. Here's what he had to say, adding that Star Wars: »

Carrie Fisher mocked her mother Debbie Reynolds as she presented her with a Lifetime Achievement prize at the Screen Actors Guild awards last night (25.01.15). The 'Star Wars' actress gave a humorous introduction to her 82-year-old mom and even referenced her infamous feud with Dame Elizabeth Taylor, who had an affair with her first husband, Carrie's father Eddie Fisher. Carrie said: ''She's been more than a mother to me, not much, but definitely more. She is a movie star, recording artist, television actor, nightclub entertainer, Broadway performer and co-founder of the Thalians, a group that has raised more than $30 million for mental health. Well, mental health-related causes, and $4.5 million of that money is allocated just for me... ''This is an extraordinarily kind, gifted, and funny woman who would give you the shirt off her back if Vivien Leigh hadn't once worn it in 'Gone With the Wind'. »

If you're betting on "Boyhood" to win big at the upcoming Academy Awards, think again! Richard Linklater's "Boyhood" was deemed to be the big Oscar frontrunner but a double-dose of guild awards over the weekend tamed those prospects down. First, the Producers Guild of America gave their top honor to Alejandro González Iñárritu's "Birdman," and the Screen Actors Guild followed suit!
"Birdman" took home the Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture award! But, since the movie is about acting, this award is just fitting.
My biggest surprise, and it'a welcome surprise indeed, was "The Theory of Everything's" Eddie Redmayne taking home the Outstanding Male Actor trophy. Sorry Michael Keaton! I think Redmayne truly gave the Performance of the Year award!
The 82-year-old entertainer recalled having "a big, ugly bun" in her best-known movie, Singin' in the Rain.
"Luckily, George gave her two buns."
But later she also called The Unsinkable Molly Brown her favourite. She received her only Oscar nomination for the 1964 film.
"I got to sing a song called 'I Ain't Down Yet,'" she said. "Well, I ain't."
The acerbic Fisher lovingly and bitingly celebrated her mother before turning over the mic. »

It has been a big weekend for Birdman, which not only won best ensemble »

The SAG Awards are the night when Hollywood recognizes its own, and so things can get a bit emotional - who doesn't like being complimented by one's colleagues? To that end, the 2015 SAG Awards featured any number of touching moments, from Uzo Aduba's emotional acceptance speech to Viola Davis mentioning her daughter during her own speech. (The pair made history Sunday - this is the first time in SAG history the two lead television acting awards have gone to women of color.) Carrie Fisher hilariously introduced her mother, life achievement award recipient Debbie Reynolds, and Eddie Redmayne continued to live his best life, »

Quick…name a favorable film where the landscape is run by (or at least partially include) the demographic of little people as part of the instrumental storyline? C’mon…it should not be that difficult, okay? If you want to mention say Darby O’Gill and the Little People then that would fine. How about Bad Santa or Poltergeist for that matter?
In That’s Good Enough, Short Stuff: Top Ten Films Featuring Little People we will take a look at some of the mini megastars that inhabited these movies and contributed their fair share of entertainment value to the on-screen proceedings. The debate as to whether some of these selected films featuring these pint-sized performers are considered positive, exploitative or dismissive are not up for discussion (although one of these considerations could apply in the minds of a few folks). Instead, we want to celebrate the inclusion of »

Every year, stars get together at the SAG Awards to congratulate each other on how awesome they all are with a lavish, unhosted ceremony that speeds along at a quick pace because everyone wants to get their naked man sculptures and hit up the after parties.
Because of the ceremony's weird place in the awards season – after the Oscar Nominations have been announced but before the Oscars actually take place - and the Golden Globes-esque mingling of television and film stars, sometimes the show can get real weird, real quick.

It was all in the eyes at this year's Screen Actors Guild Awards. After inspiring a Twitter account with her specs at the Golden Globes, Lupita Nyong'o stepped up to the SAG Awards stage wearing glasses again - and she appears to have started a trend. For the SAGs, the actress looked amazingly accessorized with thick black frames, even holding her own next to Jared Leto's famous locks. Nyong'o's fashionable four-eyed look was followed by a streak of other bespectacled ladies. Patricia Arquette showed up at the podium in a set of cobalt blue frames, which came in handy »

“She has been more than a mother to me — not much, but definitely more,” Fisher said of the Lifetime Achievement Award honoree
Carrie Fisher took to the stage at the Screen Actors Guild Awards to pay tribute to her mother Debbie Reynolds, as the 2015 recipient of the SAG Lifetime Achievement Award. She was sincere and funny in honoring her mother, who was famous in Hollywood before the “Star Wars” star was even born.
She kicked things off by confusing anyone in the audience who either wasn’t paying attention, or somehow didn’t know that Fisher was the daughter of Reynolds. »

A Tinseltown mainstay since the 1950s, Debbie Reynolds received the annual life achievement award at the 21st annual Screen Actors Guild Awards.

A: It's lovely to see Carrie Fisher honoring her mother, Debbie Reynolds, after all the years of... neither one honoring the other. B: Nice glasses! The author, entertainer and Star Wars legend left the dual buns at home but brought out what appear to be a pair of Bono's spare 3-D glasses. (Hey, we're not the only ones who noticed--Twitter is absolutely wondering why she's wearing 3-D glasses.) »
