There has been a small storm of casting news for Marvel/Netflix’s Luke Cage of late, which is hardly surprising since the show is kicking off its shoot. But while the most recent word has been less official, Marvel has now announced that Mahershala Ali will present a real problem for our hero as Cottonmouth. To give him his full name, Cornell “Cottonmouth” Stokes will be a Harlem nightclub owner in the series, a man whose criminal activities don’t sit well with Cage’s hero-for-hire attitude. “Mahershala is an actor of extraordinary range and gravitas. As Cottonmouth he will really let loose,” says Marvel Television boss Jeph Loeb. “Luke Cage won’t know what hit him.” Cage, of course, is played by Mike Colter, and he’ll pop up in Jessica Jones before seeing his own story told in his show, set to hit Netflix next year.Already »

“The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2,” the final film in the popular series, is the most anticipated fall movie, according to a recent survey by Fandango. That distinction comes with a big caveat. The online ticketer polled 1,000 moviegoers on the films they’re most excited to see between September and November, but that excluded a certain blockbuster-to-be because “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” doesn’t hit theaters until December.
The two most recent “Hunger Games” sequels topped Fandango’s list of most anticipated fall releases, making this the third consecutive year it’s topped charts. The first “Hunger Games” was released in March of 2012.
The last “Hunger Games” attracted 36% of the vote. The second and third most anticipated films were the latest James Bond mission, “Spectre,” which 26% of respondents picked, and the Ridley Scott and Matt Damon collaboration, “The Martian, »

Bobby Fischer first makes waves in the elite world of chess as a 6-year-old whiz-kid from Brooklyn famous for his laser-like concentration and ability to dominate all challengers. By his teens, the boy wonder has gone from chess savant to international grandmaster, but his meteoric rise is punctuated by unpredictable personal behavior and escalating demands that raise hackles in the conservative chess establishment.

Wes Bentley was the It Boy of 1999 when he starred opposite Kevin Spacey, Annette Bening and Thora Birch in "American Beauty" ... but then, things took a shocking turn. The then-20-something actor fell into a drug spiral and began working on projects that didn't receive quite the same acclaim as the Oscar-winning film. While he's since resurrected his career with roles in "The Hunger Games," "American Horror Story," "Interstellar" and the upcoming live-adaptation of "Pete's Dragon," he is very open about his struggles with sobriety. "I didn’t do anything in high school. I was one of those kids in high school who looked down on people who smoked pot or you know partied and even drank," he says in a new interview with "Larry King Now." "It really became a problem in 2006 when it really started to take hold of me and the drugs got harder and I got deeper in it. »
