'Beauty and the Beast' Star Emma Watson Explains Why She Chose Belle Over Cinderella

12 hours ago | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Emma Watson made her movie debut at the age of 11 in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone and literally grew up on screen. But it wasn't until the series concluded in 2011 that we started to get a sense of her range as an actress, apart from her signature role as Hermione Granger. She acquitted herself quite well in My Week With Marilyn and The Perks of Being a Wallflower, capably handling key supporting roles. Watson really stood out in Sofia Coppola's The Bling Ring, as a fame-obsessed young woman who happily breaks into the homes of celebrities to steal their material goods. Darren Aronofsky's Noah allowed her to showcase her dramatic abilities, such as in this scene opposite Anthony Hopkins. About four years ago, Watson was in very early talks to star...

Fantasy Fridays: Scully & Mfr Cast And Pitch Shazam! w/Dwayne Johnson

13 January 2017 11:57 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Welcome back to another edition of Fantasy Fridays, where two real-life best friends who ended up working at Lrm together get to pretend to be Studio Execs by casting, staffing, and/or pitching fanboy-centric projects. Last week, we made our case for what the next wave of Marvel series on Netflix should center on. This week we turn our attention towards DC's Shazam!

This week gave us the first real updates on Shazam! in quite some time. With both producer Hiram Garcia and star Dwayne Johnson (who's locked in to play Black Adam) taking to social media to hype up how well a key meeting with the WB/DC brass went. Johnson made a statement about how the future of the DC Extended Universe looks to embrace an outlook of "Hope, Optimism, and Fun," and that got us thinking about how to best tackle a Shazam! movie that wants to be all of those things. »

It turns out things could have been a whole lot different, because Robin Williams really wanted the role for himself, but he was ultimately rejected for it.

Janet Hirshenson, who served as the casting director for the Harry Potter movies, was recently interviewed by The Huffington Post and revealed that Robin Williams did indeed reach out to the team behind the movie about the part. Unfortunately, due to a "Brits-only" rule during the casting process, he wasn't really considered seriously for the part of Hagrid. Here is what she had to say about it.

"Robin had called because he really wanted to be in the movie, but it was a British-only edict, and once he said no to Robin, »
