Maybe it's wrong to immediately compare the new teaser trailer for HBO's The Normal Heart, based on Larry Kramer's Tony-winning play, with Dallas Buyers Club based on the subject matter alone, but what if we just compare the "compassionate female doctor" roles? From the looks of things, they should have gone ahead and cast Julia Roberts in both productions. Hindsight is always 20/20. Meanwhile, Mark Ruffalo and Matt Bomer look like they're going to jerk the tears right out of our ducts. »

The trailer also features a wheelchair-bound Julia Roberts issue a harsh warning, as emotions run high during the onset of the HIV-aids crisis in the early 1980s.
While panic and controversy ensues against the backdrop of New York City, Ruffalo and Bomer's characters look to expose the truth about the epidemic.

Earlier tonight, HBO released the first teaser trailer for The Normal Heart. Directed by Ryan Murphy (Glee), the film follows the HIV/AIDS crisis in New York City in the early 1980s, and looks at the nation’s sexual politics as gay activists and their allies in the medical community fought to expose the truth about the burgeoning epidemic to a city and nation in denial. While I'll certainly tune in to see it, I'm not a big fan of Murphy's work, and I'm worried this is going to come off as schmaltzy and melodramatic. I hope I'm wrong, because it's certainly an important story and one worth telling. Hit the jump to check out the teaser trailer. The film stars Mark Ruffalo, Matt Bomer, Taylor Kitsch, Jim Parsons, and Julia Roberts. The Normal Heart airs Sunday, May 25th at 9pm on HBO. Via HBO. »

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 »

Dark Horizons Hugh Jackman planning to hang up the Wolverine claws soon. Yes! I 100% co-sign everything my friend Ja says about this one on his blog:
Honestly at seven films down I'm kind of ready for Jackman to do something else, too. As long as he keeps taking his clothes off, of course! But the bulging vein Wolverine look has gotten to be too much. »
