An Important Ode to Charlie Hunnam's Days on Undeclared

28 January 2015 9:00 AM, PST | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Before Sons of Anarchy and before Charlie Hunnam became a bona-fide heartthrob, the sexy Brit appeared on the short-lived TV series Undeclared. Created by Judd Apatow back in 2001, the show followed a group of college freshmen, and along with Hunnam, the series also starred familiar faces like Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, and Carla Gallo. As Lloyd Haythe, Charlie played the main character's hot British roommate - a theater major who was all about the ladies. Whether you loved all 17 episodes or never watched the show, relive Charlie's best Jax Teller moments, then take a trip down memory lane with this ode to his Undeclared days, including GIFs, clips, and must-see photos of 21-year-old Charlie. »

What does the latest British invasion say about the state of American acting?

28 January 2015 6:00 AM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent - Inside Movies news »

Martin Luther King Jr., is a celebrated American icon. His wife, Coretta, was a beloved American public figure. President Lyndon Johnson was a colorful Texan, and Governor George Wallace was a good ol' boy son of the South from Alabama. In director Ava DuVernay's Best Picture nominee about the 1965 Selma civil-rights march, however, they're portrayed by David Oyelowo, Carmen Ejogo, Tom Wilkinson, and Tim Roth, respectively, who share at least one thing in common: They're British. Selma isn't an exception—rather, the Brits seem to be everywhere lately. Last year's Best Picture winner, 12 Years a Slave, about a 19th-century »

'Ghostbusters' Reboot Gets a Summer 2016 Release Date

27 January 2015 5:21 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After revealing the main cast members on his Twitter page earlier today, Ghostbusters director Paul Feig also used the social media platform to announce the July 22, 2016 release date. The reboot, which stars Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon, will be going up against Warner Bros.' medieval adventure Knights of the Round Table: King Arthur, starring Charlie Hunnam, and Lionsgate's action reboot Power Rangers on that same date. Ghostbusters also falls between the animated sequel Ice Age 5 on July 15, 2016 and the Untitled Matt Damon Bourne Sequel on July 29, 2016.

Just hours after the cast members were confirmed, another report surfaced that Sony wants Bill Murray to play Martin Heiss, a professional ghost debunker who tries to prove that these new Ghostbusters are faking the videos that they're posting online. The character is described as similar to William Atherton's Walter Peck from the original Ghostbusters. Peter Dinklage, »

New ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ Footage Will Quiet Jamie Dornan Doubters Once and for All

22 January 2015 10:20 AM, PST | | See recent news »

Before today, I wasn’t sold on the idea of Jamie Dornan playing the almighty Christian Grey. I mean, it’s Christian Grey — Dornan didn’t seem manly or devastatingly handsome enough to fill his shoes. But now, never before seen footage from Fifty Shades of Grey is here, and the man proves he’s serious about making our dreams come true.

In Ellie Goulding‘s “Love Me Like You Do” video Dornan’s muscles are on display, as well as a large-and-in-charge demeanor, and some sweet, sweet love making. Suddenly, my top picks to play Christian Grey on the big screen (Matt Bomer, Charlie Hunnam) have disappeared from memory.

For those who wondered if Dornan was manly enough to play Mr. Grey, or if he could live up to the S&M King’s stature, your questions are about to be answered. I’m still bummed »

Queer As Folk cast - Then and Now: What the show's stars did next

17 January 2015 3:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

A Russell T Davies TV project is always something to be excited about. From gifting us Queer as Folk to saving Doctor Who, he has given us a lot to be grateful for over the years. Hence why his various comeback series on Channel 4, E4 and online later this month are being greeted with such a sense of anticipation.

Cucumber, Banana and Tofu come 16 years after Davies shook up TV with Queer as Folk and his new shows look likely to be just as exciting, exploring the passions and pitfalls of 21st century gay life with a candid sense of humour.

But will it create as many stars as Davies's previous Channel 4 series? Here's what happened to the Queer As Folk stars after it ended in 2000.

15 January 2015 11:14 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After playing one tragic outlaw across multiple years on FX’s recently concluded Sons of Anarchy, Charlie Hunnam is taking on another anti-hero role. The actor just signed on to star in a drama that Legendary is adapting from the 2011 Rolling Stone article “An American Drug Lord in Acapulco.” Legendary is moving quickly ahead with the project and has already set American Sniper scribe Jason Hall to pen the script.

Brad Pitt, Christian Bale and Ryan Gosling — what more do you need? Well, when it's a studio-driven drama about the housing bubble and financial crisis that features no superheroes, you'll take as many people as you can get. And thus, Steve Carell has joined the Adam McKay-directed "The Big Short." The adaptation of the Michael Lewis bestseller will find the Oscar-nominated "Foxcatcher" actor playing "Steve Eisman, a money manager who shorted subprime mortgages" in a movie that "chronicles multiple storylines and juggles various characters against the backdrop of the housing and credit bubbles of the 2000s that led to the 2007-08 global financial crisis." No word yet on when filming will begin. [THR] Legendary Pictures is developing an adaptation of the 2011 Rolling Stone article "American Drug Lord" as a vehicle for Charlie Hunnam.

Cruise, Hunnam Plan Drug Cartel Dramas

14 January 2015 3:40 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Tom Cruise and his "Edge of Tomorrow" director Doug Liman are in talks to re-team on the crime drama "Mena" at Universal Pictures and Cross Creek.

The fact-based tale follows Barry Seal, a 1980s pilot who was also a gun runner and trafficker that smuggled contraband for both the CIA and the Medellin cartel.

He ultimately was shot to death by the cartel in Baton Rouge. Cruise already has one qualification for the role as he's an accomplished pilot in his own right.

Gary Spinelli penned the drama which Doug Davison, Brian Grazer, Brian Oliver and Tyler Thompson will produce. Filming aims to begin later this year.

Cruise isn't the only one planning a true story drug trade tale. Legendary Pictures is planning a film adaptation of a 2011 Rolling Stone article which would be a starring vehicle for "Sons of Anarchy" and "Pacific Rim" actor Charlie Hunnam.
