French Canadian hottie Francois Arnaud, 28, is the latest actor, in what seems to be a revolving door of Hollywood studs, to reportedly be considered for the coveted role of Christian in the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey. Would he be the right choice?
Francois Arnaud Reportedly Approached To Play Christian Grey
Charlie Hunnam dropping out of Fifty Shades has really blown the casting possibilities wide open. And now, Francois is the newest guy on the short list, according to JustJared.

Last week, Jon Gosselin, former star of "Jon and Kate Plus 8" on TLC, fired a warning shot at a female photographer as she attempted to take his picture at his new digs out in the woods of Pennsylvania.
Kate Gosselin, his ex-wife and mother of their eight children, tells "Today" that she's fearful for her children's safety and that's why she is suing her ex husband over a tell-all book which she says he only wrote after hacking her computer.
"When we started out investigating the source of what was happening, I made the decision back then to push this. It's a lot of internet bullying and I've lost a lot of employment opportunities over rumor mills circulating false stuff," says Gosselin. "The most unexpected and disappointing thing is who was at the center of it. It's »

I know you’re watching Copper, as well you should, and I had a chance to talk with Ato Essandoh (Matthew Freeman) recently. It was an interesting conversation, filled with a lot of laughter, and surprisingly, we talked about the laughter on set for much of the time. Stemming from my conversation with Donal Logue, I wanted to know if the set was really as light-hearted as he suggested, and apparently it is.
It was a great time, and I’ve interviewed few people who were easier to talk to. As you know already, things are really heating up for the Freemans, and I… well, I didn’t really get the scoop on any of it.
Check it out below.

So, I talked to Donal Logue not long ago, and I thought it would be interesting to throw this out and see what your response was – to listen to him talk, »

Thn’s Craig Hunter recently posted info on the fact that the director of the first post-skyfall James Bond movie could very well be one Christopher Nolan, and while those rumours remain just that, word has hit the virtual street today that another hotter than hot helmer could be in the running too.
Nicolas Winding Refn makes moves about men of action & few words. James Bond is cut from that mold. Refn may not get it but he’s in the mix.

So, what do we think of this? Referring to the Nolan thing, I personally don’t think he will touch it, especially as he has other things on the go, kicking off with original story Intersteller, »

As usual, Tribeca presented quite the diverse batch of shorts this year. There are plenty of new voices from New York City, a whole slew of international filmmakers, and a wide variety of documentary and experimental films. In the mix is some outrageous humor, heartrending human stories and a few uncompromising works of cinematic vision. Yet out of this wide selection, a handful inevitably rose right to the top. Here are the best ten short films from this year’s edition of the Tribeca Film Festival – in alphabetical order. Alberi, by Michelangelo Frammartino Fans of Michelangelo Frammartino’s 2010 critical hit Le Quattro Volte might know what to expect from his new short, which played on a loop at MoMA’s PS1 in Queens in association with Tribeca. His style is one of breathtaking humility, searching for the grand beauty in the simple lives of Italian farmers. Alberi, which is Italian for “trees,” looks »

The BBC has announced that for the 50th Anniversary season they will air a special episode for Doctor Who that will be in 3D. They did something similar for their 30th Anniversary special in 1993. Couldn’t hurt to add a new dimension to our viewing of a show about adventures in time and space, now can it? Of course not.
This special episode is not to be confused with the 50th Anniversary Special: An Adventure in Space and Time. This will be an episode this season that might be featuring some characters and or Doctors from the past, but that’s just my guess. BBC America quotes Steven Moffat as saying the episode will bring “a whole new dimension of adventure for the Doctor to explore.” That’s all the info that they’re letting out about the episode so far, but we have a few goodies for the new season. »

The Ice Warriors are to make their return to Doctor Who, it has been confirmed.
The reptilian-like humanoids first battled Patrick Troughton's Doctor in 1967's 'The Ice Warriors', but haven't been seen since the show was revived in 2005.
Executive producer Caro Skinner told SFX: "We've got the most fantastic episode by Mark Gatiss where we are bringing back the Ice Warriors on a submarine.
"We wanted to bring them back because they're wonderful. In the mix of stories that we were planning for this year it felt as if doing something very bold with a monster that hadn't been seen for a while would be really cool.
"Mark is an enormous fan of the Ice Warrior stories and came up with the idea. The sense of a monster of that scale and that size trapped in a really small, contained environment such as a submarine was a really brilliant »
The sight of Gwyneth Paltrow teetering in six-inch heels on the edge of Cee Lo’s piano, warbling out a shaky rendition of “Forget You” was enough to make me swear off the Grammy’s for years to come. This wasn’t an isolated incident, either. I could name a dozen actors and actresses who, when famous enough, decided to declare their musical talents to the world and drop albums, collaborations, and musical cameos on their unsuspecting fans.
Frankly, I just don’t understand. Aren’t you famous enough, adored enough, and paid enough to be satisfied with acting? Maybe we’re just watching another side effect of the cult of celebrity; the glitterati are so famous, so adored, so well paid that they feel free to indulge their every whim, trusting their brilliance will cushion them.
Actors/actresses aren’t alone in this either. For every Minnie Driver (yes, »

It looks that The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo helmer David Fincher is in some serious negotiations to direct an adaptation of Gillian Flynn‘s novel titled Gone Girl. Funny thing, ’cause we all know that Fincher is still attached to direct that 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea project for Disney, right? Well, apparently, the Girl-thing is “a possibility”, and if you ask me – it sounds like a pretty cool story, so why not?
Here’s the official description of Flynn’s novel:
On a warm summer morning in North Carthage, Missouri, it is Nick and Amy Dunne’s fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick’s clever and »

Over the course of his long career, artist Drew Struzan has worked on some of Hollywood’s most beloved franchises, including Blade Runner, Indiana Jones, Back to the Future and Hellboy. Of course, he’s perhaps best known for his promotional work on Star Wars – he designed the posters for 1978 re-release of A New Hope (actually he co-worked on this one with Charles White III), the Prequel Trilogy and Special Editions, as well as numerous album, novel and comic book covers.
Fanhattan recently had a chat with iconic poster artist and asked the retired master whether he might get back in the business with the new Star Wars films. The good news is that Disney has already approached Struzan to do some work for the new trilogy, which will see the first installment release sometime in 2015, but the bad news is that Struzan hasn’t decided whether he’ll actually do it. »
