BBC Studios: New independent venture announced by Tony Hall

12 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

The BBC has announced plans for a new production division called BBC Studios.

Director general Tony Hall outlined a new strategy that will be created within the public service, independent of BBC Television.

The move aims to give production "greater visibility within the BBC and an increased autonomy over its long-term strategy," the BBC said.

Speaking at Broadcasting House earlier today (March 2), Lord Hall said: "One only has to look at the incredible richness and range of the current BBC Production portfolio, from a reinvigorated EastEnders to world leading natural history, shows like Strictly that bring the nation together, award-winning comedy and drama and of course our music and arts programming - a range no other studio can match - to understand how important it is that we ensure BBC Production continues to flourish creatively in the future."

The leader of the division will report directly to Hall and sit on the BBC Executive Team. »

16 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Comic book adaptation Lucifer has found its leading man – EastEnders, Doctor Who and Miranda star Tom Ellis

Adding another name to the long list of British actors who have headed to Hollywood to portray American comic book characters, Welsh actor Tom Ellis has now been cast in Fox’s Lucifer pilot, as you may have heard over the weekend.

Depending on your tastes in television, there are many roles you could recognise Tom Ellis from. He landed a small but significant role as Thomas Milligan in Doctor Who’s Last Of The Time Lords, a 29-episode stint as Dr. Oliver in EastEnders and a series regular role as Gary in BBC comedy Miranda. To our cousins across the pond, he might be better known as William P. Rush in the medical-themed TV drama Rush.

He will take the title role in Lucifer, based on Mike Carey and Peter Gross’ comic of the same name, »

X-Men: Apocalypse – 10 Characters Ben Hardy Could Be Playing

25 February 2015 9:05 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

BBC / Marvel Comics

It was announced this week that Eastenders star Ben Hardy had landed a role in the 2016 superhero blockbuster X-Men: Apocalypse, a film now looking busier than the Avengers’ changing room.

24 year old Hardy, who played the sixth incarnation of Ian Beale’s son Peter on the ever-popular London-based British soap opera, has been cast in an as yet unspecified role in the movie, prompting frantic discussion amongst X-fans regarding exactly which character he could be portraying.

Originally rumoured to be playing a young version of existing movie character and key X-Men member Cyclops (he is said to have auditioned specifically for that part), that no longer seems the case – Tye Sheridan beat out Hardy for that particular role.

Still, Hardy’s casting came with the kicker that his role would indeed be an important one in the franchise. Exactly how important that role is – and whether or »

U.K. Soap Star Ben Hardy Set To Join X-Men: Apocalypse

25 February 2015 8:58 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It seems that the recent headline-grabbing live episodes of U.K soap opera Eastenders have provided something of a showcase for series regular Ben Hardy, as The Wrap reports that he is now in talks for a significant role in X-Men: Apocalypse. While Hardy has 188 episodes of the soap under his belt, he had apparently screentested for the X-Men role of Cyclops, before being rumoured for the role of Angel. The part he may ultimately play in the movie, however, is described as “key” and “important.”

X-Men: Apocalypse is the upcoming sequel to 2014’s box office hit, X-Men: Days Of Future Past, and is the newest instalment in the X-Men franchise. Based on the Marvel comic series, the titular superhero team are comprised of mutants – born with superhuman abilities and spurned by humanity – who fight for peace and equality. The franchise currently comprises of five films, with two spinoff films »

British TV Actor Ben Hardy Gets Mystery Role in 'X-Men: Apocalypse'

25 February 2015 7:52 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Another mutant has joined the ranks of X-Men: Apocalypse. Just after Dawn of the Planet of the Apes star Kodi Smit-McPhee was hired to play Nightcrawler in the next installment of the X-Men series, albeit in a new timeline, The Wrap reports Ben Hardy, the British television star of the UK series "EastEnders," is in talks for a key role in the film. Funnily enough, Hardy was up for the role of young Cyclops before it went to Tye Sheridan, and there have been rumblings that he might play a young version of Angel. However, the source notes that other insiders say that he's playing another mutant, though specifics are under wraps. Hardy joins a big cast that includes returning X-Men franchise stars Hugh Jackmanm Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, James McAvoy and Evan Peters, not to mention the return of Rose Byrne as Moira MacTaggert after sitting out »

Eastenders Star Joins X-Men: Apocalypse In “Significant” Role

25 February 2015 6:47 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

BBC / Marvel Comics

Eastenders actor Ben Hardy is swapping Walford for Bryan Singer’s big screen X-Men world.

After missing out on the role of young Scott Summers, Ben Hardy is joining Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse in an unknown role. Variety is reporting that the mystery character is a “significant” one from the Marvel comic book world.

Given Hardy’s appearance, the early speculation is that the role in question could be that of Warren Worthington III. Commonly known by the name of Angel, the character has also had his darker moments alongside the villain Apocalypse, in which he then has the Archangel moniker.

Already confirmed for Singer’s next venture into the X-world are returns for James McAvoy as Charles Xavier, Michael Fassbender as Magneto, Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, Nicholas Hoult as Beast, Rose Byrne as Moira McTaggert, and Evan Peters as Quicksilver. New additions include Tye Sheridan as the young Scott Summers/Cyclops, »

Ben Hardy circling X-Men: Apocalypse mystery role

25 February 2015 3:36 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

According to TheWrap, Bryan Singer has found yet another young cast member for X-Men: Apocalypse, in the form of EastEnders actor Ben Hardy.

Unfortunately, we have no idea who Hardy will be playing, as the role is “another important [one] that is being kept under wraps.”

Hardy was one of the actors who tested for the role of Cyclops, which ultimately went to Mud‘s Tye Sheridan. The new report claims that while he was rumored to be playing Angel, “insiders” claim that that’s not the case. Whether or not Angel is actually in the film is, like a lot of things surrounding this project, still a mystery.

X-Men: Apocalypse is set for release on May 19th, 2016 and stars X-Men veterans James McAvoy (Professor X), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Evan Peters (Quicksilver) and Rose Byrne (Moira MacTaggert) alongside Oscar Isaac (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) as Apocalypse, »
