Andy Samberg: ‘Popstar’ Is ‘Amalgam of Everything Happening in Pop Music Right Now’

25 May 2016 10:45 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“You walk into The Lonely Island guys’ machine. You walk into their vision. And it’s going to be funnier than what you can think of,” said Michael Bolton at the New York City premiere of “Popstar” Tuesday night at AMC Loews Lincoln Square. Bolton was just one of many A-list actors, comedians, and musicians who appeared in the film and showed up for the debut.

The documentary-style motion picture surrounds the ups-and-downs of a former boy band member gone solo. Connor4Real, played by Andy Samberg, leaves his childhood boy band, the Style Boys, played by Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer, on bad terms. Now, Connor has to deal with severed friendships and floundering album sales under society’s microscope.

Although, the parody looks to be based on pop sensation Justin Bieber — with Samberg brandishing very similarly placed tattoos and wearing Bieber-esque ensembles — Lonely Island said the film is a bit bigger than that. »

Battle of the Bulge: Is Patrick Dempsey the New Jon Hamm?

23 May 2016 2:58 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Nothing like a good bulge to brighten your Monday, amiright? Just kidding. It's been a while since we've typed something that ridiculous. If you're into that sort of thing, you can take a moment to soak in Patrick Dempsey in some workout pants. McDreamy was snapped Jon Hamm-ing the heck out of some sporty bottoms, and of course, the Internet loves it. In the event you need a refresher, Hamm also turned heads in a similar situation not long ago. The Mad Men star wasn't pleased when people made a fuss about his photos, stating "I mean, it's not like I'm a f---king lead miner. There are harder jobs in the world," he said. "But when people feel the freedom to create Tumblr »

Ron Perlman Wants to Play Cable in Deadpool 2

19 May 2016 2:42 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ron Perlman is never shy about letting his fans and the world know when he wants something to happen, and he has recently made it known that he wants to take on the role of Cable in Deadpool 2. The actor took to his Facebook to post a couple of side by side photos showing his resemblance to the Marvel Comics time traveling mutant who has been confirmed to appear in the Deadpool sequel. He goes onto declare this.

"I'm the only with Cable's friggin hair!"

Ron Perlman campaigning for the role via social media isn't exactly a surprise, because a few months ago he campaigned very hard on Twitter to get fans to rally behind getting Hellboy 3 made. Even though the actor wasn't ultimately able to get the movie greenlit, he did get a lot of traction behind the idea, so this new campaign should at least get him on Fox's radar. »

It's just the latest in a string of high-profile gigs for Cena, who made a memorable turn opposite Amy Schumer in last year's Trainwreck, is heavily featured on E!'s Total Divas (and the upcoming spinoff, Total Bellas), occasionally shows up on the Today show and currently hosts the Fox reality competition American Grit.

Deadpool 2: Dolph Lundgren Eyes Cable Role, T.J. Miller Keen To Return For Sequel

16 May 2016 2:36 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Thanks to a meta end-credits sequence, Cable is effectively locked down for an appearance in Deadpool 2, when the musclebound baddie will surely give even the Merc With a Mouth a run for his money.

Of the three names teased by Ryan Reynolds himself – Mel Gibson, Dolph Lundgren and Keira Knightley – a new report coming by way of Nerdist has revealed that one star has now entertained the idea of joining Deadpool 2. And no, it’s not Keira Knightley.

More News From The Web

Ever since Deadpool blasted into theaters earlier in the year, the likes of Jon Hamm and Avatar star Stephen Lang have emerged as prime candidates for the role, and while he doesn’t necessarily sound overly enthusiastic, Dolph Lundgren did entertain the notion of taking up arms as Cable.

2016 Emmy Predictions: Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series

Quick Hits• Last Year's Winner: Jon Hamm, "Mad Men" • Was It an Upset? No• Still Eligible? No• Hot Streak: More like a cold streak: Kevin Spacey has never won an Emmy, and he's zero for three with "House of Cards."• Fun Fact: Jon Hamm, Bryan Cranston and Kyle Chandler all won Emmys for the final seasons of their respective programs — the only men to do so in the 2000s — but Cranston is the only actor to win for an episode that wasn't the series finale. His submitted, winning episode was "Ozymandias," the third-to-last entry in "Breaking Bad" Season 5. While Spacey's lack of Emmy gold may not be as glaring an omission as Jon Hamm's Emmy-less streak heading into last year's ceremony, the idea that an actor who's won two Academy Awards, a Golden Globe and three Screen Actors Guild trophies is without television's highest honor does seem a bit »

'Deadpool 2': Dolph Lundgren Interested in Playing Cable

13 May 2016 11:09 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Looks like Cable seems to be the part to go for these days. Following the success of Deadpool, and the "reveal" that Cable would likely be making his way into the inevitable sequel, actor Stephen Lang expressed his interest in playing the part, going so far as to post a photo of himself getting ready for the part on social media. Other actors fans have seemed to want to play the role include Jon Hamm and Jefferey Dean Morgan.

Another actor now on the radar is Dolph Lundgren, who fans most likely best remember from Rocky IV and, more recently, the Expendables franchise. Lundgren also played the role of Frank Castle in the 1989 Punisher film. In a recent interview with Nerdist, the outlet asked Lundgren if he was interested in venturing back into the Marvel world.

Lundgren's response was as follows:

This 80's Action Legend Wants To Play Cable In Deadpool 2

13 May 2016 7:04 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The race to cast Deadpool 2's Cable is one that you're going to want to keep an eye on over the next year or so. With Stephen Lang, Jon Hamm, and, naturally, Keira Knightley all in the running, it's going to get quite competitive. Of course, a new candidate as emerged, asking the big question: does Dolph Lundgren stand a chance against the competition trying to snag the role? You can thank The Nerdist for the good news, as they recently interviewed Lundgren on camera, and asked the first man to play The Punisher if he'd ever want to return to making Marvel films. Dolph Lundgren then said that he'd heard the role of Nathan "Cable" Summers was open, which lead to his interviewer asking if he'd be up for the gig. Lundgren's humble, but obviously eager, response was the following: Well.. I guess I could kick some butt »
