Jesse Eisenberg To Write, Direct & Star In J.J. Abrams-Produced TV Comedy

15 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Given that he doesn’t necessarily look or act like a traditional idea of a leading man, the enduring stardom of Jesse Eisenberg is a pleasing thing. It’s now 15 years since we first saw him on screen, in Dylan Kidd’s “Roger Dodger,” and he’s consistently made strong choices that have kept him on the A-list, whether it’s working with acclaimed auteurs like Woody Allen, Noah Baumbach and David Fincher, excelling in smaller indies like Kelly Reichardt’s “Night Moves,” Richard Ayoade’s “The Double” or James Ponsoldt’s “The End Of The Tour,” or selling out while holding onto his credibility in “Now You See Me” or “Zombieland” (though we’ll skip over ‘Batman v Superman‘).

‘Doctor Who’: The Next Doctor Rumored to Be ‘Chewing Gum’s’ Black Female Star — Report

21 April 2017 10:37 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every time the star of “Doctor Who” has announced they’re stepping down, speculation regenerates about his possible replacement. Ah, but what if this time, instead of a white male Doctor, the BBC finally listened to fans who’ve been seeking some diversity for the role?

According to a Nerdist, a source close to production insists that Michaela Coel will replace Peter Capaldi as the next Doctor, which would make her the first female and first black actor to play the role. This source is not an official BBC spokesperson though, and the statement the BBC released to Nerdist didn’t confirm anything: “No casting decisions have been made yet for ‘Doctor Who’ Season 11.”

Stop-motion connoisseurs Aardman Animations are getting back into the game with Early Man, a prehistoric adventure starring Eddie Redmayne, Tom Hiddleston and Game of Thrones starlet Maisie Williams.

Slated for January of 2018, today brings forth the very first teaser trailer for Nick Park’s old-timey adventure flick, and fans of Aardman’s decorated body of work (see: Wallace and Gromit and Chicken Run) ought to feel right at home.

Placed at the forefront of his hapless tribe – here we see Dug’s allies scuppering a hunting trip, blissfully unaware that they’re creating too much noise – Redmayne’s protagonist spearheads a fight against the mighty Lord Nooth (Hiddleston), a ridiculously pompous governor/tyrant who hails from a neighboring Bronze Age town.

Tilda Swinton is the new favorite to replace Peter Capaldi in Doctor Who

16 February 2017 1:20 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ladbrokes has updated its odds with regards Peter Capaldi’s replacement in Doctor Who. According to the bookmaker, the new favourite is Doctor Strange star Tilda Swinton, which would put her in the history books as the first ever female Doctor.

Keep in mind that these are just betting odds founded on a great degree of research, taking into account statements from actors, historical trends, and the push to finally give audiences a female Doctor (Ladbrokes are offering just 5/4 that a female actress will be cast).

Some other interesting names under consideration are Olivia Colman, Ben Whishaw, and Richard Ayoade, while Kris Marshall is 4/1 second favourite following his departure from Death in Paradise.

The Outsider’s Opinion: Who Can Play the New Doctor Who?

6 February 2017 8:45 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tom Jolliffe with an outsider’s opinion on who could play the next Doctor in Doctor Who

There’s a certain level of fandom reserved for a select type of film or TV show. Think of Trekkies, or Star Wars nuts, or Adam Sandler fans…okay, forget Adam Sandler, but as well as those who know the exact design breakdowns of the Enterprise or the Death Star down to the amount of coffee dispensers, there’s also a group of fans who know all there is to know about Doctor Who. They can explain exactly the science behind the Tardis, or that screwdriver thingy that the Doctor uses. Hell, they know what that thingy is called. Maybe they’ve been avid fans since the relaunch in 2005, or perhaps some of the elder Who geeks have stood by since the days of the Bakers’ or Davison, Pertwee, McCoy etc.

I’m not a Who fan. »
