A moment of high praise for FX’s top drama, “Sons of Anarchy,” riding off into the sunset this year as Sutter’s Hamlet on Harleys says goodbye to characters like Gemma (Katey Sagal), Jax (Charlie Hunnam), Tig (Kim Coates), Bobby (Mark Boone Junior), Juice (Theo Rossi), Wendy (Drea de Matteo), Unser (Dayton Callie) and Chuckie (Michael Ornstein) among many stellar acting peers who have served showrunner Kurt Sutter well over the seven years it aired on the network. Sutter even played a pivotal Samcro character – Otto Delaney – in the series.Even FX chief exec John Landgraf’s wife Ally Walker was […] »

One of the best things that Ellen DeGeneres does on her show, Ellen, is parody different movies and TV shows. While I didn’t think Ellen could top her jokes about Matthew McConaughey’s Lincoln commercials (which have also been spoofed by Saturday Night Live and South Park), she may just have done that by debuting her “starring role” in the new 50 Shades of Grey film. That’s right, everyone, don’t believe what you’ve heard about the movie; Dakota Johnson is no longer its female lead—Ellen has now become Anastasia Steele, at least in this awesome and really funny parody. In the video below, you can watch as Ellen cuts Johnson out and inserts herself into the biggest scenes in the film’s trailer, as she pretends to act opposite Jamie Dorman, who will be playing the infamous Christina Grey (a role that was originally nabbed by »

Warning – spoilers for Pacific Rim below…
Having made $411 million worldwide at the box office, it was inevitable that a sequel for Pacific Rim would be in the works, despite the rather definitive editing. So, just how will Guillermo Del Toro continue the story?
In an interview with Collider, Del Toro has given us some insight in what we can expect from Pacific Rim 2, “It’s a few years after the first one,” he said. “It’s not an immediate follow-up. It’s the world having been freed of Kaiju, what happens to the world after – what happens to the Jaeger technology once the Kaiju are not a threat. It’s quite a jump.”
“It’s quite a different movie from the first one,” he adds. “But I think that two of our main characters like in the first one are Burn [Gorman] and Charlie [Day]. They are really, really – I mean, »

With filming scheduled to start next fall, filmmaker Guillermo del Toro is teasing new story details for his highly-anticipated sequel Pacific Rim 2. The director has revealing just how long after the original Pacific Rim this sequel is set, and confirms that Charlie Day (Dr. Newton Geisler) and Burn Gorman (Gottlieb) will both reprise their roles.
When asked about the timeline of this sequel, Guillermo del Toro had this to say, revealing that it takes place a few years after the first movie, in a world now free from Kaiju monsters.
"It's a few years after the first one. It's not an immediate follow-up. It is the world having been freed of Kaiju, what happens to the world after - what happens to the Jaeger technology once the Kaiju are not a threat. It's quite a jump."
Charlie Hunnam is really playing up this whole bad-boy thing. The 34-year-old Sons of Anarchy star is featured in the December 2014 issue of Vogue, and you better believe he's shirtless on a motorcycle! The former Fifty Shades of Grey front-runner isn't half-naked on a bike all by his lonesome—he's joined by 27-year-old Brazilian model Caroline Trentini and one adorable (and coordinated) mixed-breed pup! Another shot in the mag, which is on stands now, features Charlie, sitting on an antique love seat inexplicably placed outside, drawing in his sketchbook as Caroline is sprawled across his lap. He's wearing a button-down in this pic, although it looks easily removable. Is the »
Isn't it too late for another casting shake-up? Jamie Dornan replaced Charlie Hunnam as Christian Grey before production on Fifty Shades of Grey even began, and now, star Dakota Johnson has been replaced—by none other than Ellen DeGeneres! Ok, not really. But as anticipation builds for the sexy movie's Feb. 13, 2015 release date, the talk show host decided to spoof the film's trailer by subbing herself in for Johnson as protagonist Anastasia Steele. "Over the years, I've shown a lot of scenes from different movies that I've been cut out of," DeGeneres told her studio audience. "What happens is I get cast and show up and I work like a professional. I learn my lines and I really »
Director Guy Ritchie is deep in the casting process for his upcoming King Arthur movie, and he has cast Djimon Hounsou (Guardians of the Galaxy) in the role of a character that is equivalent to the wizard Merlin. Idris Elba was looking to play this character at one point but he passed.
The reimagined story of King Arthur that Warner Bros and Ritchie want to tell will potentially span six films. The source material being used is based on Thomas Mallory’s “Le Morte d’Arthur,” which was published in 1485 as a compilation of French and English tales. Arthur was a 6th century King, who defended Britain against Saxon invaders.

The Performer | Charlie Hunnam
The Show | Sons of Anarchy
The Episode | “Suits of Woe”
The Airdate | November 18, 2014
The Performance | Ever since Sons of Anarchy first revved its engines for the series’ final ride, we’ve anxiously awaited the crucial moment when Jax would learn the identity of Tara’s true killer. We knew that moment wouldn’t come until late in the season — Episode 10, to be exact — and we knew that Jax would likely come undone as soon as he discovered his own mother murdered the love of his life.

Charlie Hunnam may be the hottest guy ever to straddle a Harley-Davidson on TV, but the Sons of Anarchy actor admits that he didn't always look like a biker babe's fantasy. The U.K. native, who was selected by People as one of 2014's Sexiest Men Alive, says life as young bloke was much less different than what he experienced over the past six years as the star of FX's addictive motorcycle drama. "I find the awkward phases in life are cyclical more than something you grow out of," Hunnam, 34, told People. "My life has been a long succession of »

Sons of Anarchy's Nov. 18 episode, "Suits of Woe," will go down as one of the series' finest thanks in part to the performance delivered by Jimmy Smits (Nero): First, audiences watched Nero's face as Jax (Charlie Hunnam) told him over the phone that he's learned Gemma (Katey Sagal) killed Tara. (As episode director Peter Weller told EW, "Kurt said as a tone note that he would rarely give an actor a beat where we don’t hear what he’s hearing, so it’s all played on his face, but he would definitely give that to Jimmy Smits because Jimmy Smits is unbelievable. »

Djimon Hounsou is in talks to join the cast of Guy Ritchie's "Knights of the Round Table," to play King Arthur’s mentor who's described as a Merlin-like character who trains Arthur. God forbid he actually plays Arthur; nope, the black man has to be the mentor, the trainer, the guide, the sage, the magical Negro, etc, etc, etc. It's actually a role that was originally assigned to Idris Elba, who moved on to other things due to scheduling conflicts. The Warner Bros./Village Roadshow project stars Charlie Hunnam as Arthur, and Astrid Berges-Frisbey will be Guinevere. Meanwhile, Jude Law is also in talks to play the main villain. The studio hopes that the film will be »

When you hear Merlin, the image that might come to mind is a scrawny old white dude with a long silver beard. Well, Guy Ritchie has just proven his take on the King Arthur tale will break from expectation, thanks to the casting of his Knights of the Round Table's Merlin. Variety reports Djimon Hounsou has entered into negotiations to play the Merlin-like role in Guy Ritchie Knights of the Round Table. The character will serve as a mentor to a young King Arthur just as he has in many legends, but he won't be keeping the long-used moniker "Merlin." Should he sign on, the Benin-born performer would join a cast that already includes English actor Charlie Hunnam as King Arthur and Barcelona-born ingénue Astrid Bergès-Frisbey as Guinevere. Djimon Hounsou has been on a hot streak lately. He lent his distinctively deep voice to the villain of How »
