Are Alan Cumming’s ‘Celibacy Challenge’ Undies Too Risqué for Instagram?

27 February 2015 5:31 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

On Thursday, Alan Cumming, The Good Wife actor and current star opposite of Sienna Miller in Cabaret, became the latest celeb Instagram user to have his image deleted from the social media platform.

The image at hand? A close-up shot of Cumming in a red pair of underwear branded with a closed lock -- the symbol of the actor and GLAAD’s cheeky Celibacy Challenge, which is raising awareness of Fda’s restrictions on blood donations from gay and bisexual men.

Watch Alan Cumming's Entertaining New 'Pro-Abstinence' PSA (Video)

19 February 2015 10:35 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The Fda recently changed its rules regarding blood donations from gay and bisexual men. Following a blanket "ban for life" since the '80s, the agency announced it will begin accepting blood donations from gay and bisexual men, but only if they remain celibate for a year. Alan Cumming and GLAAD are not happy about this. In their words, "Straight guys can have safe sex with woman after woman and still donate blood. But gay and bi men who have had safe sex for an entire year — even with a monogamous partner - would still be banned." Which brings us to Cumming's ad: In it, »

Horror / Sci-Fi Round-Up: Nightcrawler Cast for X-Men: Apocalypse, New Fright Rags Shirts, The Pyramid Blu-ray / DVD Release Details

18 February 2015 9:44 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Welcome to another horror/sci-fi round-up! We have news on who will play the marvelous mutant Nightcrawler in X-Men: Apocalypse, a look at four new fright-styled T-shirts from Fright Rags (including an ’80's-esque Freddy Krueger), and home media release details for 20th Century Fox's The Pyramid.

Nightcrawler: He can teleport with his unique dimension-hopping ability, he's extremely agile, he knows how to handle a saber with expert ease, and he at times has a gleeful sense of humor. The X-Men mutant Nightcrawler has many admirable traits and was memorably portrayed by Alan Cumming in Bryan Singer's X2. With Singer back behind the camera for X-Men: Apocalypse, a film that will introduce more mutants to the growing ranks of the X-Mansion, it's been revealed by the director on his Instagram page that Kodi Smit-McPhee will play a young Nightcrawler.

Smit-McPhee recently played Alexander in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, »

New Nightcrawler Cast In ‘X-Men: Apocalypse

18 February 2015 6:06 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It may not be released until next year but Bryan Singer is making sure that we don’t forget about X-men: Apocalypse as he earlier announced yet another cast member. Jennifer Lawrence, Oscar Isaac, Nicholas Hoult, Evan Peters, Sophie Turner, James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender are already attached to the project, but they now have a new addition to welcome into the ever expanding fold. Kodi Smit-McPhee whose body of work includes The Road and Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes has signed on to play Nightcrawler.

Brought to the big screen first by Alan Cumming Kurt Wagner aka Nightcrawler is a firm fan favourite. For those mot in the know Nightcrawler’s mutant abilities include superhuman agility, adhesive hand and feet and the ability to teleport! He also has a rather altered physical appearance; blue skin (or fur), two-toed feet and three-fingered hands, yellow eye, pointy ears and a tail. »

Kodi Smit-Mcphee Is The New Nightcrawler In 'X-Men: Apocalypse'

18 February 2015 6:05 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The more things change, the more they stay the same....or something. Bryan Singer is gearing up "X-Men: Apocalypse" for a spring shoot in Montreal, and we're seeing a lot of young faces taking on the roles of established mutants. And it's actually a pretty terrific ensemble getting together for this one, with Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Oscar IsaacEvan PetersTye Sheridan, Sophie Turner, and Alexandra Shipp as part of the new school cast, with Ian McKellen reportedly returning in some capacity. And now, the group is growing one larger. Kodi Smit-McPhee ("The Road," "Dawn Of  The Planet Of The Apes") has bagged the role of Nightcrawler in the movie. It certainly suggests a different tenor from Alan Cumming's more flamboyant role, perhaps more introspective and pained than flashy. But Smit-McPhee is a great talent, so we're excited to see what he can do with the character. »

Kodi Smit-McPhee Is Nightcrawler In X-Men: Apocalypse

Bryan Singer has used Instagram to announce the recasting of Nightcrawler for X-Men: Apocalypse. He’s picked Kodi Smit-McPhee, the Australian kid from The Road and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

Seems like this boy has a thing about Hollywood apocalypses.

It’s increasingly popular to soft-reboot film series with new casts. Usually there’s a time travel loop as a big red reset button.

2009’s Star Trek was first, I believe, and Terminator Genisys will be next, the time hops allowing the filmmakers an excuse – a flimsy excuse, but anyway – to recast everybody with younger, better looking and cheaper alternatives but still say the film is part of established continuity.

And so it is with X-Men. Skipping back to the 60s »

'X-Men: Apocalypse' Finds Its Nightcrawler With Kodi Smit-McPhee

18 February 2015 1:40 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

What's the best way to up your follower count on Instagram? If you're Bryan Singer, you use your account to tease your upcoming movie. Yesterday he dropped some concept art for "X-Men: Apocalypse," and late last night, Singer revealed his new Nightcrawler. Singer posted a professional-looking headshot of Kodi Smit-McPhee, with the caption, " Excited to welcome @kodismitmcphee to the cast of #XmenApocalypse as young #Nightcrawler." Smit-McPhee doubled up on the message by posting a similar Instagram announcement.

Kodi Smit-McPhee first snagged our attention as the nameless young boy in "The Road," followed by roles in "Let Me In," "ParaNorman," and "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes." However, the character of Nightcrawler, a fuzzy blue mutant with a prehensile tail, is probably the weirdest of them all. Alan Cumming transmogrified into a super creepy Nightcrawler in "X-Men 2," complete with yellow eyes, two-fingered hands, and scarred blue skin.

'X-Men: Apocalypse' Gets Kodi Smit-McPhee as Nightcrawler

17 February 2015 8:17 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Some late night casting news has just broke courtesy of Bryan Singer. The director welcomed young actor Kodi Smit-McPhee to the X-Men: Apocalypse cast courtesy of his personal Instagram. Kodi Smit-McPhee is confirmed to be taking on the role of Kurt Wagner, otherwise known as Nightcrawler, in this latest Mutant adventure.

Introduced in Giant-Size X-Men #1 way back in 1975, Nightcrawler has superhuman agility, can teleport, and is endowed with adhesive hands and feet. His physical appearance includes dark blue skin which allows him to become nearly invisible in shadows, two-toed feet and three-fingered hands, yellow eyes, pointed ears and a prehensile tail. In Nightcrawler's earlier comic book appearances he is seen as a happy-go-lucky practical joker, and is a fan of swashbuckling adventures. Nightcrawler is also a Catholic, and while this is not emphasized as much in his earlier comic book appearances, in later depictions Nightcrawler is more vocal about his faith. »

It was made known recently that the Colossus character will be featured in the film, but as far as who will replace Cudmore there are no details available just yet, or if the character will appear in Apocalypse...

From navel-grazing necklines (Jennifer Aniston’s vintage John Galliano at the Screen Actors Guild Awards) to thigh-grazing hemlines (Madonna’s Givenchy bodysuit at the Grammys), the stars have been pulling out all the stops. If this year’s awards season offers any clues as to what we can expect on Oscar’s big night, it’s that we should expect the unexpected.

“Everyone is doing something different,” says Brit designer Emilia Wickstead, who created Diane Kruger’s stunning Golden Globes gown. “There are so many stories being told on the red carpet.”
