Katie Holmes is to star in 'Ray Donovan'. The former 'Dawson's Creek' star - who has eight-year-old daughter Suri with ex-husband Tom Cruise - is joining the Showtime drama as ''shrewd and chic'' businesswoman Paige, the daughter of billionaire producer Andrew Finney (Ian McShane) who hires fixer Ray (Liev Schreiber). The 35-year-old beauty has a bust few months ahead as she will reprise her role as Jackie Kennedy in 'The Kennedys: After Camelot' in the spring. She is also preparing to make her directorial debut in 'All We Had, in which she will also star, and she will be seen in 'Woman in Gold' opposite Ryan Reynolds and Dame Helen Mirren. Katie recently admitted she is pleased to be back working after a few years off, and is ''excited'' about what other acting roles she might be offered in the future. She added: ''Work ebbs and flows »
At this point, watching the development of The Huntsman has become something of a sport. The sequel to 2012’s phenomenally successful Snow White And The Huntsman is now a case-study in what can be achieved when Universal has the commitment of two stars, a confirmed release date, and then just holds on tight.
When the first film opened to great fanfare and financial success, the idea of a sequel was immediately and predictably bandied about. The main cast – Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron – was on board and happy to return. Then came a wave of high profile controversy surrounding Stewart and the film’s director, Rupert Sanders – which led to both of them stepping away from the project. But, with Hemsworth and Theron still attached, a release date was set for April 22nd 2016, and attentions turned to the development of a screenplay, without Snow White in it.

Deadline reports that only two of the seven dwarves from the first film will be back, though which dwarves they are is still unclear. Three of them though - actors Nick Frost, Toby Jones and Eddie Marsan - are Not going to return.

She is described as “a shrewd and chic businesswoman” and should be a challenge for movie stalwart Holmes, who made her name on the small screen in Dawson’s Creek. She returned properly to TV in 2011 for The Kennedys mini series (a sequel to which is coming next year) but this recurring role is an interesting change of pace. The actress was most recently seen in The Giver.
Entering production for its third season, Ray Donovan concerns a “fixer” for the great and good in Los Angeles who has to juggle the personal and the professional whilst keeping one step ahead of an ever-inquisitive FBI. In the past it’s boasted an array of meaty acting names, such as James Woods, Elliott Gould and Rosanna Arquette. »

It’s interesting that the titular figure (Keanu Reeves) in John Wick, a visceral and vivid actioner of uncommon simplicity, is presented as the fresh face of a brand-new action franchise when he’s actually a throwback to the unstoppable juggernaut in James Cameron’s The Terminator. That’s not a knock so much as a raised eyebrow aimed at the kinds of characters that directors Chad Stahelski and David Leitch and writer Derek Kolstad think modern-day audiences want to watch. And after sitting through the slick and stylish feast of action trash they’ve whipped up, it’s easy to nod your head and acknowledge that they’re onto something.
After all, even though Wick – an ex-assassin who goes back to work when the pig-headed son (Alfie Allen) of New York’s uppermost Russian mob boss (Michael Nyqvist) steals his prized Mustang and brutishly kills the puppy that Wick »

Holmes, whose breakthrough role came playing Joey Potter on Dawson's Creek, will guest star in the Showtime crime drama's third season, set to debut this summer.
Ray Donovan, Showtime's second-highest rated drama behind the political thriller Homeland, stars Liev Schreiber as a "fixer" in Los Angeles who is hired by the rich and famous to make their problems go away, often outside the means of the law.

Universal Pictures is currently moving forward with The Huntsman, a sequel to their 2012 action-adventure Snow White and the Huntsman that will primarily focus on Chris Hemsworth's title character and Charlize Theron as the evil Ravenna, with Emily Blunt also in talks for an unspecified villain role. We already know that Kristen Stewart is not returning as Snow White, but a new report from Deadline reveals that Nick Frost, Toby Jones and Eddie Marsan, who played three of the seven dwarfs in Snow White and the Huntsman, will not be back for the follow-up.
The sequel will only feature two of the dwarfs, although it isn't entirely clear yet which two they will be. Eddie Marsan was forced to bow out due to schedule complications with Showtime's Ray Donovan, while both Nick Frost and Toby Jones "appear not to have agreed on terms for the second installment." The remaining dwarfs »
Nick Frost ("Shaun Of The Dead"), Toby Jones ("Captain America: The First Avenger") and Eddie Marsan ("The World's End") will not reprise their Snow White & The Huntsman roles in Cedric Nicolas-Troyan's The Huntsman, according to Deadline. In fact, only two dwaves will be back for the follow-up. Who are they? Deadline doesn't know at this time. Well, you count out Bob Hoskins too. The actor passed away shortly after the film came out. That leaves Ian McShane, Johnny Harris, Ray Winstone and Brian Gleeson as possibilities to return. Deadline did provide reasons as to why Frost, Jones and Marsan aren't coming back. Marsan was never a consideration. His schedule is too busy based on his role in the Showtime series, Ray Donovan. As for Frost and Jones, they couldn't agree on the terms Universal offered them. Boo! The sequel sends the Huntsman on a quest to find the magic »
It sounds like a George Rr Martin title, but a dearth of dwarves is apparently the situation in The Huntsman, the follow-up to Snow White And The Huntsman. There's no Snow White this time, but there's also a scarcity of the little fellas.Given that The Huntsman is a prequel, taking place well before Snow White encountered the dwarves in the first place, we might have guessed this anyway. If you're raving about the decision, however, rest assured that at least two of the previous eight (yes, there were eight, rather breaking with Disney tradition) will appear again.Which two? That's unclear at this stage. Bob Hoskins is sadly no longer with us, while Deadline reports that Nick Frost, Toby Jones and Eddie Marsan are all already out of the running for various reasons. That leaves Ian McShane, Ray Winstone, Johnny Harris and Brian Gleeson as the four actors possibly still drawing straws with Universal. »
Katie Holmes is ready to meet Ray Donovan. The Dawson’s Creek actress will be joining the cast of the Showtime drama for its third season in what is being described as a “major” role. Holmes will play Paige, a businesswoman that is described as “shrewd” and “chic” and who also happens to be the daughter to another new Ray Donovan character, Andrew Finney, who will be played by Ian McShane. As we already reported last week, McShane’s Finney will be “a prominent movie producer and billionaire who hires Ray (Liev Schreiber) to get his family out of a potentially catastrophic situation.” While McShane’s casting creates the possibility of a Deadwood reunion between him and his former co-star Paula Malcomson, who plays Ray’s wife Abby on the Showtime series, Holmes’ casting also allows for a reunion of sorts, since she and her former Dawson’s Creek co-star »
