"People will stop me and ask for a photo," Cavill told HuffPost Entertainment about his burgeoning star status. "Going to Starbucks, I definitely feel that thing of any minute now someone is going to say something -- then it will be photo bedlam. It hasn't quite hit with its full force yet, but it's definitely changing."
As it turns out, however, Cavill could have experienced those photo ops much earlier in his career. The 30-year-old actor was mentioned as possible star for some of the biggest films of the last decade. Ahead, a quick look at the lost roles of Henry Cavill.

"Harry Potter" fans went so far as to start an online petition to get Cavill the role of Cedric Diggory in "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, »

Mark Rylance is pretty great. Mark Rylance x 2 is just beyond. But brace yourself, theater fans, as two-time Tony winner (and could it soon be three and four?) Rylance will perform Richard III (in the title role) and show his lighter side in Twelfth Night as Olivia, in full drag no less, on Broadway this fall in two all-male Shakespeare’s Globe productions. (Look out, Billy Porter!)
And don’t fret about cost, according to the official press release: “the producers are pleased to announce that at every performance, 250 seats will be set aside to be sold for $25. These seats will include the balcony, »

This weekend, "The Internship" hits theaters nationwide, just in time to scare a new crop of college graduates into thinking that their lives are going to be really, really different if they don't find a top tier job right out of the gate. The film stars Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson as a pair of out-of-work watch salesmen (wait, what?) who decide to bluff their way into an internship at the most prestigious place ever: Google. They soon learn that getting hired at Google isn't going to be a walk in the search engine park, and have to band together with a team of ragtag outsiders to complete a series of tasks.
Full disclosure: "The Internship" is easily one of the most excruciatingly painful moviegoing experiences this writer has had all year. Even though it's about a high-tech company, every joke feels like it's been sitting on a shelf for years, »

Zoe Saldana has expressed a desire to direct a movie.
"I was never the man with the plan until recently, maybe two years ago," she admitted.
"It is only because of my desire to make that transition and become a director and that is one of the reasons why I wanted to work with Guillaume because he is an actor and now he has been making a very graceful and solid transition into directing."
Saldana went on to suggest that directing her own film could be far more creatively "satisfying" than acting.
"You are more of a participant in the conception and making of a story, of a movie, as opposed to being an actor that's »
We’re so excited! A source, who’s read the script, tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively that Selena will take risks for her role in ‘Rudderless.’
Selena Gomez is showing off more of her dark side, which she started experimenting with in Spring Breakers. In her new movie, Rudderless, Selena will engage in sex and get involved in a cult. (Oh my!)
The film’s premise is described as follows:
A grieving father in a downward spiral stumbles across a box of his recently deceased son’s demo tapes and lyrics. Shocked by the discovery of this unknown talent, he forms a band in the hope of finding some catharsis.
Selena plays Kate Lucas and a source close to production tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively, “Selena’s character once dated a guy named Josh, the character who is dead. She shares some tears with Emily, »

William H Macy is directing Rudderless, the story of a father who copes with his young song's tragic death through music.
Speaking to E! News, Chung suggested that the drama will be quite a change from her co-star Gomez's past work.
"It's the parents' perspective of being the parents of a murderer, a mass murder like Sandy Hook," she explained.
"You never get to hear the parents' perspective of dealing with the hurt and the betrayal and the anger and the love.
"It's a really interesting angle on a story like that. It's pretty dark but it's kind of beautiful in a way."
Chung went on to praise Gomez, saying: "The thing is, she's so talented, you're really going to see a different side. It's going to be a bit more fragile.

Forget your body clock: any time of day finds film fans watching Nicolas Winding Refn's tense, brutal thriller, Sorrentino's beguiling look at fading beauty or Soderbergh's tremendous Liberace biopic. Then there's the Coens' hoot of a movie and Carla Bruni's sister's comedy. But which will win the big prize?
At 7.30am on Cannes's main strip people wearing dinner jackets and cocktail dresses held handwritten signs that read "Only God Forgives", triple-underlined, and "Please! Only God Forgives!" They might have been members of a doomsday cult, one with an imperious dress code, but no: a Ryan Gosling film was about to premiere in the Grand Théâtre Lumière and this lot were ticketless, hoping by dressing smartly to pick up last-minute invites. They looked on while several hundred of us filed in for 90 minutes of early-morning ultra-violence.

Blue Is The Warmest Color
Sundance Selects has acquired U.S. rights to Abdellatif Kechiche's French-language drama "Blue Is the Warmest Color" starring Lea Seydoux and Adele Exarchopoulos. The story deals with a young girl's first love and includes explicit lesbian sex scenes. It has also drawn rave reviews at Cannes. »

Granted, "Blood Ties" is a bit of mess (and you can read why in our review from Cannes), but there is much to like about it too. Particularly the performances, with Clive Owen giving the best turn he's delivered in a quite a while, matched by Billy Crudup as his emotionally wounded brother and James Caan as their father who comes between the pair, eager to keep the family together. A sprawling two-and-a-half-hour saga set in the mid-1970s, the story chronicles ex-con Chris, recently out of another stint in the joint, who spirals back into a life of crime, while is brother Frank is torn between the affection he has for his brother and his duty to bring him to justice. It's a lot to tackle -- with an extended cast that features Mila Kunis, Matthias Schoenaerts, Zoe Saldana, Marion Cotillard, Noah Emmerich and Lili Taylor too -- and »

Cannes - This is not Noah Emmerich's first trip to the Croisette. The character actor who has appeared in films such as "Little Children," "Super 8" and who now stars as FBI agent Stan Beeman in FX's hit series "The Americans" journeyed to Cannes for the premiere of Doug Liman's "Fair Game" three years ago. Now, he's back to support the ensemble of "Blood Ties" where he plays a NYPD police captain caught in the middle of two feuding brothers (Clive Owen, Billy Crudup) in Guillaume Canet's English-language remake of the 2008 French film "Rivals." It's a nice break for Emmerich whose in the middle of »

You never quite know when the notoriously feisty press corps will boo a big movie at Cannes. It's only clear that at some point, it will happen. Last year, I saw and was hypnotized by the dreamy Post Tenebras Lux — a movie that went on to win the jury’s Best Director award, mind you — and my reverie was broken when the movie ended and my seatmate led an unexpected, theater-wide chorus of jeers. This year, it’s hard to find a single person who likes the Billy Crudup–Clive Owen cop saga Blood Ties or the totally enervating Benicio Del Toro drama Jimmy P. (Psychotherapy of a Plains Indian), and yet both of those media screenings still ended with polite, muted applause. Well, the wait is over.Many of us walked into today’s press screening of Only God Forgives with high hopes: The film reunites impish director Nicolas Winding Refn »

"Blood Ties" is a remake of the French film "Les Liens du sang," yet unspools in a distinctly American setting -- New York City in the height (or depth) of its 1970s »
