'Masters of Sex' Star Lizzy Caplan in Talks for 'Now You See Me 2'

15 October 2014 4:15 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

From "Mean Girls" to "Masters of Sex," Lizzy Caplan is everywhere we want to be and in everything we want to see. That might include next year's sequel to the surprise hit "Now You See Me," which the actress is currently in talks for.

Isla Fisher was one of the few the lone women holding down the fort in 2013's "Now You See Me," which co-starred Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Mark Ruffalo, Dave Franco, Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, and Mélanie Laurent. Fisher, who appeared in the acerbic 2012 comedy "Bachelorette" with Caplan, had to bow out of the sequel because she's pregnant. Daniel Radcliffe will also appear in "Now You See Me 2" as the son of Michael Caine's character's Arthur Tressler.

Of course, whether or not Caplan joins the film depends on her "Masters of Sex" schedule. Her performance as researcher Virginia Johnson has won over viewers and critics alike, »

Lizzy Caplan Is Eyeing The Female Lead In Now You See Me 2

14 October 2014 2:16 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Last year’s magician thriller, Now You See Me, didn’t exactly receive universal critical acclaim. While it was certainly an enjoyable romp with a couple of twists chucked in, it failed to revive the genre after the 2006 double-whammy of The Prestige and The Illusionist. Still, putting its critical reception aside, it raked in a sufficient haul at the box office to warrant a sequel that we’re not sure is entirely needed.

Nevertheless, it’s been a while since we’ve heard official word on any new casting for Now You See Me 2, but today’s scoop from The Wrap has now transformed the second outing into a far more enticing affair. The outlet reports that Cloverfield‘s Lizzy Caplan is currently deep in negotiations to snag the female lead. The biggest hurdle surrounding her involvement is her role on Showtime’s Masters Of Sex, for which the »

CNN Digital Cooks Up New Niche With Reality News

2 October 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

CNN is carving out a vibrant niche somewhere between the breaking news of earthquakes and wars, and reality TV, with its celebrity divorces and people foraging on islands. The cabler calls this category “reality news,” and it’s a format that has been extremely successful with Anthony Bourdain’s multiple-Emmy winning “Parts Unknown.”

CNN Digital Studios, overseen by Chris Berend, launched earlier this year to introduce programming and personalities that could either cross over to the cable network or remain on digital platforms. One of the division’s first shows was urban futurist docuseries “City of Tomorrow,” which appeared on both digital and cable. Other original videos will focus on technology, entertainment, lifestyle and travel.

The influence of Bourdain’s gonzo approach to food and culture is clearly seen in CNN Digital Studios’ upcoming series “Street Food With Roy Choi,” which premieres online Oct. 13. In eight five-minute episodes, L.A. »

Daniel Radcliffe to Play Michael Caine's Son in Now You See Me 2

2 October 2014 8:50 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe is set to star in the magician heist film Now You See Me 2. The news come from Michael Caine, who reveals in an interview with HeyUGuys that Radcliffe will be playing his son in the story.

"There's a sequel to Now You See Me and we're shooting in London. I shoot in December, the whole of December in London, and my son is Harry Potter. I thought it'd be funny, me and Daniel Radcliffe as father and son."

That's pretty cool that these two talented actors will be playing father and son. I'm sure they'll make a great on-screen team. I liked the first movie, even though it was utterly ridiculous, I thought it was entertaining. I'm also just a sucker for magic, heist movies, and Isla Fisher

Daniel Radcliffe will trade his wizard's robes for a magician's hat, with the "Harry Potter" star set to join the cast of "Now You See Me 2."
