Leading the true life tale is James Franco as gay activist Michael Glatze, who denounces his sexuality after a health scare. After leaving San Francisco, he turns to the church to become an anti-gay pastor. Fulfilling the difficult role of his former partner is American Horror Story‘s Zachary Quinto. Over in the supporting docket, Chris Zylka is set to play one of Michael’s ex-lovers, with Emma Roberts cast as his newly-found girlfriend.

'Sons of Anarchy': Brad Carter on Leland, and other roles his mom can't watch

15 October 2014 3:51 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Spoiler alert: In the Oct. 14 episode of Sons of Anarchy, "Smoke 'Em If You Got 'Em," Leland (Brad Carter) and the Aryan Brotherhood made a return appearance to have a fistfight with Samcro, view the corpses of the ambushed East Dub crew, and taste-test the Mayan heroin that Tully (Marilyn Manson) is going to now distribute in Stockton under Jax's (Charlie Hunnam) new plan. Viewers may recognize the Texas-born, Georgia-raised Carter, who'd auditioned to play an Irish biker on Sons years ago, from HBO's True Detective—he played Ab inmate Charlie Lange.

Alex Kurtzman Talks Venom And Choosing The Right Man For The Symbiote

16 September 2014 2:09 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Not much is known about Alex Kurtzman’s Venom film for Sony, apart from the fact that it will feature the famous Spider-Man villain in an anti-hero role. Kurtzman recently talked about how the character provides a darker entry point into the Spidey franchise, as “there are certain lines that Spider-Man won’t cross… Venom, in a weird way, is the representation of every line that will get crossed.” While some characters provide straight-forward adaptation possibilities, Venom is a bit of a different story, because there have been a handful of different versions over the years.

The Venom symbiote has been worn by several characters in Spider-Man lore throughout the years and in various forms of media, the most notable of which are Peter Parker, Eddie Brock, Mac Gargan a.k.a. The Scorpion, Flash Thompson, and Harry Osborn.

Making Eddie Brock the Venom of choice is perhaps the safest bet, »

Blu-ray Review – The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)

3 September 2014 11:25 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Amazing Spider-Man 2, 2014.

Directed by Marc Webb.

Starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Campbell Scott, Embeth Davidtz, Colm Feore, Paul Giamatti, Sally Field, B.J. Novak, Felicity Jones, Chris Cooper, Chris Zylka and Denis Leary.

Synopsis:

When atrocities threaten New York, Spider-Man must protect the citizens of New York and his loved ones before New York’s heart befalls into tragedy.

Despite helping to change the face of the superhero movie in 21st century Hollywood, the Spider-Man franchise died before our very eyes, delighting and enthralling before crashing and burning. The best intentions of director Sam Raimi notwithstanding, Spider-Man 3 failed, even if it was the franchises’ highest grosser. While many blamed the excess of villains and characters, which led to a horribly disjointed script, it was the studio’s insistence on things (namely Venom) that ultimately derailed our friendly neighbourhood Spidey. Now, 10 years since Spider-Man 2 »
