Deadpool 2 Fan-Made Poster Unites the Cast, Josh Brolin Teases Cable

19 April 2017 11:20 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Exactly one week ago, after months of speculation, it was finally confirmed that Josh Brolin has signed on to play the iconic Marvel character Cable in Deadpool 2. Today we have new artwork from Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld, who shares a hand-drawn pencil sketch of Josh Brolin as Cable, along with new artwork from celebrated artist BossLogic that brings the sequel's cast together, and even a few behind-the-scenes images from Josh Brolin himself. While these photos doesn't show what he looks like as Cable just yet, he did share the first step in the long process to becoming the time traveling mutant.

Rob Liefeld took to Instagram yesterday to showcase his own artwork, which highlights the iconic scars over Cable's right eye. By the time we finally get to see what Cable looks like on the big screen, he could look vastly different than this depiction, but it's still interesting »

Deadpool 2: Ryan Reynolds Outraged Over Josh Brolin Casting

14 April 2017 7:51 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Canada. Oh Canada. A sprawling, scenic nation of maple syrup and smiles, where the people are diverse, generous, and polite (if a little snobby about their hockey). Sure, we can mostly forgive them for Poutine (look it up) and the last couple decades of Shatner's non-Trek career, but there comes a time when you gotta take a stand... 

Case in point, that overbearing Canadian upstart, Ryan Reynolds

With his newfound Deadpool movie success, Reynolds is... well, there's just no easy way to say this... he's really getting on our collective nerves. 

As Lrm reported earlier this week, Josh Brolin -- a fine, distinguished American actor -- has signed on to play legendary super-soldier Cable in Fox's Deadpool 2. Naturally, one might expect a measure of decorum from Reynolds, as befits an actor of Mr. Brolin's stature, yet to absolutely no one's surprise Reynolds took to Twitter with this oh-so-Canuck-like response. »

Ryan Reynolds welcomes Josh Brolin as Cable in Deadpool 2

13 April 2017 8:29 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

20th Century Fox’s search for its Cable came to an end yesterday as the studio announced that Josh Brolin will be taking on the role of Nathan Summers in Deadpool 2 (along with, potentially, the X-Force film and third Deadpool). Following the announcement Ryan Reynolds took to Twitter to jokingly share his thoughts on Brolin’s casting, as well as unveiling a rather odd piece of promotional artwork…

Ever since the end credits rolled on Deadpool (and even before the movie opened really), speculation was rife as to who would strapping on the gigantic elbow pads to play time travelling, massive gun spawning Cable, forever the straight man to the merc with a mouth.

Josh Brolin will play Cable

13 April 2017 12:18 AM, PDT | The Cultural Post | See recent The Cultural Post news »

Let the speculation end over who will be playing Cable (aka Nathan Summers) in the upcoming sequel to Deadpool (2016).

Lots, and I mean Lots, of names have been thrown into the rumour mill since the first film was released but now it has been announced that Josh Brolin (McU, Oldboy, Sicario) will be joining Ryan Reynolds in the highly-anticipated follow up to the sweary and violent mayhem which is Deadpool.

Whilst this may cause some confusion amongst the fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, especially as Brolin is playing the big, bad and purple Thanos in the Avengers films, I think it is a great casting call.

Brolin can be both intimidating and funny, and he is going to look pretty badass with the scars and shiny eye!

Ryan Reynolds responded to the casting by doing one of the things he does well, Twitter:

Reynolds Responds to Brolin's Cable Casting in Deadpool 2

12 April 2017 4:41 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Today, after months of rumors, shortlists and a bunch of waiting, Fox finally announced who will be playing Cable in Deadpool 2. Surprisingly, it is going to be Josh Brolin, who many Marvel fans know is already playing Thanos in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4. That didn't seem to get in the way of the deal getting done, so we now finally know who is going to be alongside Ryan Reynolds for the ride in the highly-anticipated sequel. And now the Deadpool actor has officially responded to the news.

Not long after the official announcement was made public, Ryan Reynolds took to Twitter in order to address the casting of Josh Brolin in a true Wade Wilson fashion. The actor posted a very bizarre photo, featuring Deadpool's glove, a condom with all of the Gold Girl's names on it, a couple of dominos and a cup of »

Melissa Joan Hart Wonders What Could Have Been With Ryan Reynolds: 'Maybe I Should Have Taken the Chance'

31 March 2017 11:03 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Melissa Joan Hart is pondering past love!

The Melissa & Joey star reminisced about1996's Sabrina the Teenage Witch TV movie, where she shared an on-screen romance with Ryan Reynolds, that, as the 40-year-old actress tells it, had the potential of becoming something real.

"He was very sweet. I had a boyfriend at the time but we were smitten and cute and he was adorable," Hart shared during an appearance on Australia's Studio 10. "He was a really, really nice guy, probably would have been a great boyfriend, and I didn't end up with the other guy, so maybe I should have taken a chance!"

Melissa Joan Hart Sort of Regrets Not Dating ‘90s Costar Ryan Reynolds — Despite His ‘Crazy Hair’

31 March 2017 8:56 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Before Ryan Reynolds was one of Hollywood’s most bankable stars, he enjoyed a momentary fling with ’90s teen idol Melissa Joan Hart — and she says she kind of regrets not giving him more of a chance!

The actors, both 40, costarred together in the 1996 TV movie Sabrina the Teenage Witch, in which Hart played the titular character.

A precursor to the popular spinoff sitcom of the same name, the film cast Reynolds as bad-boy Seth — the object of Sabrina’s affections (until, of course, he tried to hook up with her in his car after the Spring Fling).

Donald Trump Once Hit on Emma Thompson, and the Story Will Give You the Creeps

24 March 2017 8:50 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Just when you thought you couldn't be more repulsed by Donald Trump's interactions with women, another gross story drops from the heavens. British actress Emma Thompson recently appeared on Scandinavian TV show Skavlan, where the 57-year-old shared a story about the time the Sabrina the Teenage Witch guest star hit on her. Exactly one day after she split from first husband Kenneth Branagh, she received a call in her trailer on the set of the 1998 film Primary Colors (in which she plays a character loosely inspired by Hillary Clinton, coincidentally). The phone rang and she heard a voice that said, "Hi, it's Donald Trump here," a sensation that Emma described as "like a moose had just entered my trailer" since that phone had never rung before. He offered her "some accommodation" in Trump Towers because "they're really comfortable" and finished off the call by saying, "Well, you know, I »

Melissa Joan Hart to Direct Anjelica Huston in Lifetime Movie

22 March 2017 2:02 PM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Anjelica Huston in “Smash”: Eric Leibowitz /NBC

Sabrina the Teenage Witch and Anjelica Huston are joining forces to make some magic at Lifetime. Melissa Joan Hart will direct the Oscar winner in “Watcher in the Woods,” an upcoming original movie for the network. Variety reports that Huston will topline the re-imagining of the 1980 cult classic horror film.

Huston plays “Mrs. Alywood, the distraught mother whose daughter vanished in the English countryside over 20 years ago. When Jan Carstairs (Tallulah Evans) and her family move into the idyllic Alywood manor for the summer, the family is warned against entering the surrounding woods, but Jan and her little sister Ellie (Dixie Egerickx) hear voices coming from the forest,” Variety summarizes. “As Jan unravels the dark past hidden by the townspeople, she delves further into the mystery and deeper into danger, but now it might be too late to escape.”

In addition to her directing duties, Hart is executive producing “Watcher in the Woods” along with Paula Hart, her mother. The “God’s Not Dead 2” actress has previously helmed episodes of “Sabrina, the Teenage Witch,” in which she starred from 1996–2003, her comedy series “Melissa & Joey,” and “Santa Con,” a 2014 Lifetime movie about a con man who is forced to accept a job as a department store Santa.

Huston won an Academy Award in 1986 for “Prizzi’s Honor.” “Transparent” and “Smash” are among her recent credits.

A premiere date for “Watcher in the Woods” hasn’t been announced yet. Lifetime did, however, reveal when to expect Kyra Sedgwick’s directorial debut, “Story of a Girl.” The coming-of-age story based on Sara Zarr’s Ya novel will air on the network July 23.

Melissa Joan Hart to Direct Anjelica Huston in Lifetime Movie was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

Kal Penn Shares Old Scripts to Blast Hollywood Typecasting: ‘They Were Awful!’

15 March 2017 9:21 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Kal Penn is opening up about his experiences with what he deemed offensive typecasting in Hollywood — and he’s using Twitter to do it.

The 39-year-old actor shared a slew of photos of old audition scripts for shows like Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Smart Guy and King of Queens to highlight his experience with stereotypes in the industry.

“Jeez I remember this one! They were awful. ‘Can you make his accent a little more Authentic?’ That usually meant they wanted Apu,” Penn wrote alongside one script, as he referenced the name of a fictional Indian-American character on The Simpsons.

(Spoiler alert: Please do not read on if you haven’t watched Thursday’s episode of “Riverdale”) Well, if “Stranger Things” won’t give us #JusticeforBarb, at least “Riverdale” will. On The CW’s Archie comic book adaptation, “Stranger Things” breakout actress Shannon Purser made her debut as Ethel Muggs, who reveals she’s been sexually harassed and humiliated by football player and Riverale golden boy Chuck Clayton — the guy who proceeds to do the same thing to Veronica (Camila Mendes). Wrong move, Chuck. Veronica doesn’t follow rules — she makes them and if she has to, she’ll break them. »

Supergirl Season 2, Episode 11 Review: The Martian Chronicles

6 February 2017 8:23 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

This episode of Supergirl finds the heroine coming face-to-face with the White Martian threat in a version of the show that departs from the typical format presented so far this year. In fact, it is much more like what was shown in season one, where it focuses primarily on Supergirl, Martian Manhunter, and the primary threat. There was no Guardian, powered-up Mon-El, or Kryptonite-suited Alex Danvers present for the entire show.

We get started in the "alien bar" that many have come to despise, and right away it seemed as if it was going to be another sappy episode focusing on things like "feelings," "relationships," and the Barenaked Ladies, as Kara is broken hearted that her sister is ignoring her on her "Earth Birthday." Additionally, Mon-El has accepted her rejection to his advances only for Kara to realize she has feelings for him, and Miss Martian gets emotional with Martian Manhunter. »
