CAA Signs Taylor Kitsch

6 March 2014 10:13 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: CAA has signed actor Taylor Kitsch. Here’s the guy who – after playing one of the great recent TV characters in fullback Tim Riggins on Friday Night Lights and then a small but showy role as Gambit in X-Men Origins: Wolverine – seemed like he was going to be the next big leading man. That was before he suffered a hellacious summer when the two big movies he starred in, John Carter and Battleship, both flopped. But Kitsch has put himself back on the track with a good showing in the Oliver Stone-directed Savages and most recently playing the Medal of Honor-winning Long Island-bred Navy Seal Michael Murphy in the Peter Berg-directed Lone Survivor. Kitsch was last repped by Wme but has been agent-less this year until now. He continues to be managed by Untitled Entertainment, and he next stars in the ensemble of HBO’s adaptation »

24 February 2014 11:12 AM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

On Saturday, drug lord Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán was captured in a near-seamless operation (reports say not a single shot was fired during the bust) in the Mexican resort city of Mazatlán, where the 59-year-old wanted man was allegedly enjoying some fun in the sun.

Guzman — one of the world’s richest outlaws and the head of a drug cartel responsible for a reported 25 percent of all illegal drugs brought into the United States via Mexico — had evaded capture for years. That is, unless you count a brief imprisonment in 2001, which ended when El Chapo — translated, the nickname means “Shorty »

John Travolta Struts Into London’s West End For A Conversation With Barry Norman

17 February 2014 3:18 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Saturday Night Fever, Grease, Pulp Fiction, Get Shorty, Face/ Off. Just five of the many iconic John Travolta movies in a career that has spanned five decades and over fifty movies. In that time Travolta has appeared in musicals, horror films, thrillers, comedies, action movies, dramas, animated fares and science fiction epics. He is the actor that has seen it all and done it all. In last 35 years, since his career blossomed with a role in a 1977 musical named Grease, he has overcome personal tragedy, critical acclaim and critical mauling, career highs, career lows and at least two movie rebirths in the late 80s and 90s, most notably with the 1994 cult movie Pulp Fiction, from director Quentin Tarantino; and here he is in London, on perhaps the most glamourous nights of the year, BAFTA night, to celebrate his career and his life with the people he clearly adores the most, »

Blake Lively's Winter Leather Short Shorts: Gotta Have Them or Make Them Stop?

13 February 2014 5:00 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Look, if anyone can get away with wearing leather micro minis in a New York City blizzard, it's Blake Lively. But just because she can doesn't mean she should. Is Mrs. Ryan Reynolds looking a little too reminiscent of Miss Serena van der Woodsen in these shorty shorts? The plaid top and knee highs are total co-ed couture. Or is the bigger problem that the Savages star thinks she's above appropriate winter attire? We get that the New York Fashion Week favorite only has to walk from her hotel to her car to the front row of the next show, but this Polar Vortex is no joke. Unless those sheer tights are some kind of genius skin-warming technology, this Cali native could catch a chill that lasts a »

Zoe Saldana & Sam Worthington Will Star in All Three 'Avatar' Sequels

17 January 2014 2:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"Avatar" fans will see some familiar faces -- motion-captured faces, anyway -- in the three upcoming sequels to James Cameron's epic 3D blockbuster.

Cameron just confirmed that Zoe Saldana and Sam Worthington will return for the still-untitled follow-ups to 2009's "Avatar," reprising their roles of Na'vi huntress Neytiri and wounded Marine Jake Sully, respectively. In a press release, the director praised his leads, and noted his excitement to collaborate with the pair once again.

"Jake Sully is a rare combination of passion, strength, street smarts and soul, which requires a lot from an actor. Sam brought to the role a combination of sensitivity, vulnerability and strength," Cameron said. "Zoë captured every aspect of the character I envisioned, bringing to Neytiri a mix of delicacy, fierceness and incredible physicality. I am beyond pleased they'll be returning with us to Pandora."

Actor Stephen Lang, who played Colonel Miles Quaritch, is also returning. »

Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana Confirmed for 3 Avatar Sequels

15 January 2014 7:30 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

No surprises here, but in case you were wondering, Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana have officially signed on to star in the three Avatar sequels being developed by James Cameron. I just assumed they were were already on board, but apparently not. The only other actor that is officially attached at the moment is Stephen Lang, which was much more of a surprise than this latest update. He played Marine Colonel Quaritch in the first movie, and he died. 

Cameron plans to shoot the films back to back to back. He hired several screenwriters to help him through the process of getting these films made. Those writers include Josh Friedman (War of the Worlds), Rick Jaffa & Amanda Silver (Rise of the Planets of the Apes), and Shane Salerno (Savages). Avatar 2 is expected to be released in December of 2016, and each year after that we should get a new one. »
