When "Avengers 2" goes into production in early 2014, it will reportedly feature two new characters joining the party. Director Joss Whedon has teased that Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver would be joining the team for their next adventure.
At the same time, Bryan Singer has announced that not only is Quicksilver featured in "X-Men: Days of Future Past," but that he's cast Evan Peters ("American Horror Story") for the role. So that's two Quicksilvers in two different Marvel franchises.
A new report from The Wrap makes everything a bit more strange, though. They say the frontrunner for the role is Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who is best-known for his role in another superhero movie, "Kick-Ass."
That's not a character that's going away anytime soon either, as "Kick-Ass 2" is set for theaters in August.
Complicating matters is the fact that Peters also stars in the "Kick-Ass." However, he won't be back for "Kick-Ass 2, »

Inside the Actors Studio aired a two-hour special in honor of its 250th episode on Bravo last night, and you know what? I actually got nostalgic. I realized I’d seen a whole bunch of James Lipton‘s thespian interrogations at Pace University, and some episodes even contain marvelous insights. I’ve collected my seven favorites from beloved actresses below.
1. Meryl Streep on her “process”
“I come to each job with an open heart and trying to do my best with some connection to a character that I don’t completely understand, although I know she lives in me. I don’t question it. I have it. It’s a thing. It’s undeniable. I know I can’t make a wrong move if I just hold onto knowing what I know is true, knowing what I know is real for me.”
One amazing thing about Meryl Streep is that when she talks about acting, »

Despite years of proving herself with Oscar-nominated performances in such films as Fatal Attraction and her Emmy-winning turn on Damages, Glenn Close has nevertheless failed to win the role of a wisecracking space raccoon in Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy. Instead, director James Gunn—who apparently didn’t see Close’s masterfully disguised portrayals of men in Albert Nobbs and Hook, both not-so-subtle arguments to just let her play a raccoon already—has cast Close in “a leadership role in Nova Corps,” according to Deadline. This non-raccoon part as the head of “the intergalactic space patrol” (a patrol that »
The actress will play a leading member of the Nova Corps intergalactic space patrol, although the character's identity has not been revealed.

According to Deadline’s report, Close will play a Nova Corps leader in director James Gunn’s take on the series, and star alongside Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, and John C. Reilly, who recently joined the cast to play the part of Rhomann Dey. Marvel fans may be excited to learn that Nova Corps will have a role in the big screen adaptation of Guardians. For the uninitiated, Nova Corps is an intergalactic police force »

Jonathan Rhys Meyers to star in Star Wars: Episode VII? Jonathan Rhys Meyers is "in talks" to star in J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: Episode VII, according to Latino Review. Best known for his role as King Henry VIII in the Showtime series The Tudors, which also features upcoming Man of Steel Henry Cavill, Rhys Meyers has already been featured in one Abrams movie: Mission: Impossible III (2003), in which he supported Tom Cruise.

Makeup is an integral part of movies and television: it has the power to transform, and play with the mind of the audience in the same way as CGI and other effects can, and as such it is rightly rewarded every year when the major awards come around.
It can be used to make an actor look like a totally different person; as a collective audience, we have fostered a cinematic environment in which familiarity tends to be rewarded – we go and see sequels in droves, we flock to films based on star quality or the draw of a familiar director, and, though we may grumble, we all buy tickets for the latest remake event. So anything that can transform something familiar so well as an actor wearing a complex make-up piece should be heralded, even in the most basic terms.
And in more specialist terms, make-up can make a man look like a female, »
