We already know that Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B Jordan and Jamie Bell will play the superhero team in the upcoming "Fantastic Four" reboot. And now comes word that casting has started to find the movie's villain. It was previously reported that Dr. Doom will once again be the main villain, but will be played by a woman. The Wrap has now debunked the latter rumor by revealing the four actors who are being considered for the Dr. Doom role. Those actors are: Domhnall Gleeson (About Time), Toby Kebbell (Wrath of the Titans), Eddie Redmayne (Les Miserables) and Sam Riley (On the Road). Filminng is expected to begin this month in Louisiana, which means that casting will be locked soon. "Fantastic Four" will be directed by Josh Trank (Chronicle) and is set to hit theaters on June 19th, 2015. »
There had been rumblings that Chronicle director Josh Trank and 20th Century Fox were considering turning Doctor Doom into a woman for their reboot of The Fantastic Four, but now a short list of actors has emerged and they’re all male, and all from this side of the pond!
While Boardwalk Empire star Jack Huston was apparently considered at one point, it appears as if there are now only four actors left in the running to play the iconic Marvel villain. Who are they? Sam Riley (On the Road, Maleficent), Eddie Redmayne (Les Miserables, Jupiter Ascending), Toby Kebbell (Black Mirror, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) and Domhnall Gleeson (About Time, Frank).
These are certainly some interesting choices, and each of them will arguably bring something very unique and interesting to a character like Doctor Doom.

After years of residing in limbo and teetering on the edge of having the rights revert back to Marvel, 20th Century Fox’s Fantastic Four reboot has emerged as one of the movies I’m most curious to see in 2015. Chronicle director Josh Trank is at the helm, and we finally know who will be suiting up as the titular super-family this time around.
Miles Teller will play Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic, Kate Mara is set for the role of Sue Storm/The Invisible Woman, Michael B. Jordan will play Johnny Storm/The Human Torch, and Jamie Bell will play Ben Grimm/The Thing. Since that particular bit of casting news broke, fans have been eagerly waiting to see who would land the coveted role of the team’s nemesis, Doctor Doom. Early rumors suggested the part may go to a woman rather than a man, but it seems Fox »

With Jamie Bell, Michael B. Jordan, Miles Teller and Kate Mara lined up to play the title superhero quartet in Fantastic Four, it's time for the 20th Century Fox comic book reboot to find a villain. The film won't be going an alternate route by using someone other than the team's arch nemesis: Dr. Victor von Doom. So who is up to play the metallic bad guy? The Wrap reports the shortlist has been narrowed down to Domhnall Gleeson (About Time), Eddie Redmayne (Les Miserables), Sam Riley (On the Road) and Toby Kebbell (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes). This just might be the youngest superhero cast yet. More below! My personal choice for the role would be Toby Kebbell. The actor isn't well known but you can see him in Wrath of the Titans, and he has a pivotal role in this year's Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. »

Remember when there was a rumor that The Fantastic Four's version of Doctor Doom (aka Victor von Doom) might be a woman? Well, if a new casting shortlist is to be believed, it looks like that rumor doesn't hold water. The villainous role has apparently been narrowed down to these four blokes: Sam Riley (On the Road), Eddie Redmayne (Les Miserables), Toby Kebbell (Wrath of the Titans), or Domhnall Gleeson (About Time). Whoever ends up with the part, it's going to be a 30-something actor from the U.K. who goes up against Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan, and Jamie Bell in the title roles. Hit the jump for more. As The Wrap reports, Riley, Redmayne, Kebbell, and Gleeson are (fittingly) the final four for the role of The Fantastic Four foe of Doctor Doom. Jack Huston was also reported as being in the mix weeks ago, »

There are four more episodes of Raw and five more episodes of Smackdown before WrestleMania gets here. It feels like a marathon in a lot of ways because the hype for WrestleMania is immense and by the time it gets here, everything on the card is usually built up pretty well. That’s different from most PPVs because usually they only build up four or five matches the proper way. For WrestleMania, since there’s six weeks of TV between Elimination Chamber and WM30 there is more time to build everything up properly.
If you head over to WWE.com, they only list two matches as official for WrestleMania at this point: Randy Orton vs. Batista and Brock Lesnar vs. Undertaker. Others will be added, but for now that’s all we know for sure.

"...I have no idea what I'm doing, and that's kind of how I love it," said Stewart. "I had no idea 'Twilight' was going to be huge. Certain movies I've done I thought were going to be amazing did nothing. So it's fun not having so much control. It's kind of a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants lifestyle—it's fun, but it's scary as fuck.
"If it's not scary, it's usually—you kind of have to step back and go, 'You're probably making this decision because it's right on paper.' But unless you get that irking fear, it's not right..."

When Alfonso Cuarón presumably lifts the Best Director Oscar on Sunday, it'll be a deserved individual win, but it'll also be past-due recognition for one of the most versatile and adventurous stylists of the modern cinema. Beyond his name, what connects "A Little Princess" to "Y tu Mama Tambien" to "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" to "Gravity?" In a lovely essay, Michael Joseph Gross has a go at explaining: "All of Cuarón’s films are road movies, to greater and lesser extents. On the road, travelers are challenged to become themselves by transcending themselves, to restructure their perspective by empathizing with the people they encounter; and this act, by its nature, constantly creates new narrative understandings."

We so totally called it! Katherine's secret is a secret no more.
The crafty 500-year-old vamp's plan was working on "The Vampire Diaries" -- everyone really and truly thought she was Elena. Nadia was holding Matt hostage to wait for the vervain to get out of his system so she could compel him to forget that he figured out Elena was really Katherine. And Katherine was wearing Stefan down, getting closer to him while pushing Damon away. Things were going her way.
Until she played her hand too far on Thursday (Feb. 27) night's episode, "No Exit," and pushed just a little too hard, and got busted. So what was her fatal mistake? Let's back up a bit.
Ever since Wes injected Damon with the Augustine vampire formula, everyone's been wondering if that meant lights out for Enzo. But Enzo and Damon came up with an extremely clever idea: Turn people »
The former heartthrob talks about surviving the 90s teen TV series and how he's thrown himself into directing his first full-length feature
Come with me on a journey back to the early 90s. To bleached denim and bare midriffs. To when Beverly Hills 90210 was the biggest teen show on Earth and Jason Priestley was its biggest star. His character, Brandon Walsh, was the perfect all-American high-school heartthrob: white T-shirt, big quiff and eyes to launch a raft of terrible ocean-based metaphors. When I was 11, my friend had a lifesize poster of Priestley on her wall. Now here he is: lifesize and sitting with me in a hotel bar in Glasgow, where his directorial feature debut, Cas & Dylan, is screening at the city's film festival.
Priestley is wearing a flat cap, argyle sweater and grizzly beard. "I was very much Team Dylan," I blurt, referring to the bad-boy character played by Priestley's 90210 co-star, »

One of the great things about this year's Oscars lineup is the fact that the Best Picture category is packed with excellent films crossing a diverse range of genres. Since the introduction of an expanded field there have been a few questionable inclusions (see: Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, The Blind Side), but in 2014 it's fair to say there isn't a duffer in the bunch.
So competitive is the race for the coveted Best Picture Academy Award this year, it's even sparked some heated debate among Digital Spy staff as to which film is most deserving of the prize. With one person's ideal Best Picture winner totally different to another, we decided to throw them all together to make an argument for personal favourites...

We have not heard a great deal from Viggo Mortensen recently. The Lord of the Rings star is very particular in the roles he plays, and the result is that he does not appear in films that often. His last performance in a major film was as a minor character in On The Road, and he has no credits at all for 2013. But that’s all about to change. In addition to his upcoming part in The Two Faces of January, Mortensen is taking on the lead role in Captain Fantastic from Electric City Entertainment.
Captain Fantastic tells the story of a father who has spent a decade living off the grid in the Pacific Northwest and now must return to society. With six children in tow, he must handle all the issues that re-assimilation brings with it. It’s an intriguing plot synopsis, made all the more so when »

The actor will portray a father, who has lived off the grid in the Pacific Northwest forest with his six young children for the past decade. He must now return to acclimate his children to modern society.
"Viggo Mortensen's dedication to his craft and to the world of the story he's telling have been an inspiration to me for years. There is a depth to his art that I greatly admire. Any film he's in is a film I want to see. He's one of the greats. Getting to collaborate with him on Captain Fantastic is quite literally the best thing that's happened to me since my wife asked me to marry her. »
