Details on the project are scarce, but it’s said that the film will present “a fictional exploration of the real historical friendship between the great writer Mark Twain and the genius inventor Nikola Tesla.”
Nikola Tesla is also set to appear as a character in the currently-in-production The Current War, where he is being portrayed by Nicholas Hoult. He was also played by David Bowie in Christopher Nolan’s The Prestige back in 2006.
He's been starring on some of the best shows on the small screen since his career first began in 1995, with a small role on a made-for-tv movie about Oj Simpson.
Over 20 years later after featured roles on For Your Love, Las Vegas and Men at Work, he's wooing Lisa Edelstein's Abby on Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce.
As Coach Mike Brady, Lesure is the feared leader of little league Abby can't resist. He gets to turn otherwise disgusting habits sexy and play at turning Abby's head.
He carries on a warm and inviting conversation and has a genuine and infectious laugh. Get to know him better by reading more below.

He’ll play Poop – no, really – and we understand that Stewart has climbed on board alongside a whole host of newcomers including Jennifer Coolidge, Bridesmaids alum Maya Rudolph as Smiler, and Jake T. Austin as the human character of Sony’s twee animation. Anthony Leondis is at the helm for The Emoji Movie, which largely centers around Gene (Deadpool’s T.J. Miller), a sprightly symbol who has essentially been rendered the outcast of Textopolis after displaying more than one emotion. In order to course-correct his internal code,
To be fair, similar questions were raised in anticipation of The Lego Movie and this year’s Trolls, and Sony has crafted something of a workaround in Gene (T.J. Miller), a symbol whose ability to express more than one emotion renders him the outcast of Textopolis, a bustling digital utopia in which much of Anthony Leondis’ animation is set to take place. Think Zootopia, only overrun by sprightly pixels as opposed to an entire animal kingdom. And so, what follows is an “app-venture” like no other, after Gene is left with little choice but to buddy up with Hi-5 (James Corden) and a stealthy
Written and directed by Anthony Leondis (Igor), and co-written by Eric Siegel (Men At Work), The Emoji Movie promises an adventurous ride through your favourite digital landscapes – but whether the finished product will deliver on that promise is not clear from this promotional footage.

“The Emoji Movie unlocks the never-before-seen secret world inside your smartphone. Hidden within the messaging app is Textopolis, a bustling city where all your favorite emojis live, hoping to be selected by the phone’s user. In this world, each emoji has only one facial
T.J. Miller will lend his voice to “EmojiMovie: Express Yourself” in a leading role, Sony Animation revealed on Sunday.
Miller will play Gene, who was supposed to be a “meh” emoji like his parents. However, the optimistic character has a glitch that causes him to have multiple expressions outside of his control. Of course, he wants to be normal, but will his “glitch” end up being a gift?
The studio also released a video of Miller’s “audition” for the film. The joke clip shows Miller trying to imitate several popular emojis (Kissy face! Fried shrimp!), and Miller comments on how great it is that there’s going to be a live-action emoji movie. He’s informed, however, that it’s actually
The Hotel Transylvania franchise
Recently, Sony announced that the director of the first two instalments of the highly successful franchise – Genndy Tartakovsky – had opted not to return for the third movie. This was widely acknowledged to be the result of his return to the Samurai Jack fold, since he was that show’s creator, and he just headed up a brand new season. However, having performed a rather nifty about-face,

TBS has given a series order to People of Earth, a comedy starring Daily Show alum Wyatt Cenac as a skeptical journalist investigating a support group for alleged alien abductees.
In the series, from Conan O’Brien and Greg Daniels (The Office) and formerly known as The Group, Cenac’s Ozzie Graham slowly becomes sympathetic to the survivors’ stories and eventually comes to suspect that maybe he is an abductee, as well.

Sony won rights in July to the project, based on a pitch by Eric Siegel and Anthony Leondis about the round-headed figures that have become ubiquitous in social media. The duo are co-writing the script with Leondis directing. The logline is under wraps.
Michelle Raimo Kouyate is producing. She stepped down in July after five years as production president of Sony Pictures Animation and signed a first-look deal.
Leondis directed the short “Kung Fu Panda: Secrets of the Masters” and the DreamWorks Animation feature “B.O.O.: Bureau Of Otherworldly Operations.” Siegel was a producer on the TBS series “Men At Work” and a consulting producer on ABC’s “Family Tools.”
Leondis is repped by Wme. Siegel is repped by Apa and New Wave.
