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 »

Though he was unsuccessful in snagging the services of Idris Elba to once again mentor Charlie Hunnam – this time in King Arthur instead of Pacific Rim – Guy Ritchie is looking to replace him by once again raiding the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He has Guardians Of The Galaxy’s Djimon Hounsou in talks for a role.If he does make a deal, Hounsou will take the part that is reportedly a version of Bedivere, who is credited in many of the interpretations of Arthurian legend as a noble and loyal member of the King’s knights. In Ritchie’s take – which features a script by Edge Of Tomorrow producer Joby Harold – he’s apparently an older, wiser warrior and a right-hand man to Arthur’s father who makes it his mission to train the young man for his true destiny.The film finds Hunnam growing into his role as Arthur, with »
Variety are reporting that Djimon Hounsou is in talks to play the "Merlin-esque figure who trains and mentors Arthur" in Guy Ritchie's upcoming take on the classic tale, which is being envisioned as a six-part saga at Warner Bros. Apparently this is the role Thor: The Dark World's Idris Elba was up for, but scheduling conflicts arose and he was forced to drop out. Hounsou would join Charlie Hunnam in the title role of Arthur Pendragon, Astrid Berges-Frisbey as Guinevere, and Jude Law is still in talks to play the villain. There have been various movies, comics and tv shows based around Arthurian legend over the years, including the underrated Camelot and the mediocre Disney produced flick with Clive Owen in the title role. The most successful take was arguably John Boorman's Excalibur back in 1981. Akiva Goldsman and Tory Tunnell will produce, Joby Harold (Awake, Edge Of Tomorrow »
A few months ago it appeared as though Idris Elba was going to play a "Merlin-esque figure" in director Guy Ritchie's upcoming epic Knights of the Round Table (formerly known as King Arthur). That's obviously no longer the case since Djimon Hounsou is now said to be close to taking the role. He would join Charlie Hunnam, Astrid Berges-Frisbey (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) and probably Jude Law in the long gestating project. Maybe if they get this right they can make it the six film spectacle that Ritchie, Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow seem keen on giving us, even though one has to question the public's appetite for these medieval epics. Perhaps the upcoming Seventh Son (in which Hounsou also appears), will give us an indicator of that appetite (though if that flops it may just be because, by all appearances so far, it looks like »

Djimon Hounsou is in talks to play a Merlin-esque mentor to King Arthur in Warner Bros.' upcoming medieval adventure Knights of the Round Table. Idris Elba was in talks to play this mentor named Bedivere back in July, but the actor was forced to bow out due to scheduling conflicts.
Our report from July described Bedivere as the right-hand man to Arthur's father, who becomes Arthur's mentor and teaches the young king how to lead an army. Charlie Hunnam has signed on to play Arthur, with Astrid Berges-Frisbey portraying Guinevere. We reported last week that Jude Law is in talks to play the villain, but his deal has not closed yet. That report also revealed the Bedivere role was the last major role to be cast.
We first reported on this project back in January, when Guy Ritchie came on board to direct. This will be the first in »
The Mountain Between Us: Gone Girl breakout Rosamund Pike is heading for further leading-lady success with this adaptation of Charles Smith’s romantic novel about strangers stranded in the wilderness following a plane crash.

Guy Ritchie’s multi-film franchise for Warner Bros. has another actor potentially in line to sit at the titular table. From a report by Variety, we’ve now learned that Djimon Hounsou (Guardians Of The Galaxy) is in early negotiations to join Knights Of The Roundtable: King Arthur.
Set to bow in 2016, the film has cast Sons Of Anarchy’s Charlie Hunnam in the lead role of King Arthur for what’s being touted as a fresh take on the age-old tale. Poised to take up at his side is Astrid Berges-Frisbey as the loyal Guinevere, while Jude Law is reportedly in talks to nab the chief villain role. Hounsou is in line to pick up the gauntlet left by Idris Elba, who departed the pic earlier this year due to scheduling conflicts. The role will fashion itself around Merlin, with Hounsou providing Hunnam’s King with much-needed counsel.

Rosamund Pike delivered easily one of the best performances of the year as Amy Dunne in Gone Girl. I hope she gets rightfully recognized for her work in the coming months, because it will be well deserved. I assume, even before all that, she is in high demand given Gone Girl has enjoyed both critical and commercial success, which leads to... Pike is in talks to join Pacific Rim blank face Charlie Hunnam in the film adaptation of Charles Martin's The Mountain Between Us. She would be replacing Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street), who was previously attached to the film, which will be directed by Hany Abu-Assad (Omar, Paradise Now). amz asin="B0036S4CPW" size="small"I have zero issues with this casting decision. Put Pike in anything, and she will bring something to it. My issues lie with the previously announced Hunnam, whom I have only »

Tarsem, the visually impressive filmmaker behind "The Cell," "The Fall" and uh, "Immortals," has a new movie brewing that will make you go "whoa." Keanu Reeves will lead the director's flick "The Panopticon," which centres on "a seemingly ordinary man who receives a mysterious package containing a pre-recorded message from himself, warning that the world is about to end and only he can save it. He must race against the clock to piece together the puzzle before time runs out for mankind." How perfectly Keanu, though we'd rather see a "John Wick" sequel. Add Djimon Honsou to the rumor pile for Guy Ritchie's King Arthur flick "Knights Of The Round Table." The actor is reportedly being eyed to play "Merlin-esque figure who trains and mentors Arthur," and if it happens, he'll join the cast which includes Charlie Hunnam as Arthur and Astrid Berges-Frisbey (“I Origins”) playing »
