Enver Gjokaj and Chad Michael Murray Join Hayley Atwell in Marvel’s Agent Carter

29 August 2014 1:05 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Hayley Atwell will reprise the role of Peggy Carter on the small screen in early 2015, and Marvel have announced two additions to the cast of the eight part Agent Carter TV series. It will air when Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. takes a hiatus and is set before the events of the Marvel One-Shot which was included on the Iron Man 3 Blu-ray.

Chad Michael Murray (Fruitvale Station) has been cast in the role of Ssr Agent Jack Thompson, while Enver Gjokaj (Dollhouse) will portray Agent Daniel Sousa, both of whom will meet Carter while she takes on a new role at the Ssr in New York City. Both are newly created characters, so we can’t turn to the comic books for details!

Agent Carter picks up in 1946, and peace has dealt Peggy Carter a serious blow as she finds herself marginalized when the men return home from fighting abroad. Working »

Mike Epps Lands the Role of Richard Pryor in Lee Daniels-Directed Biopic

28 August 2014 5:23 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

As confirmed through a photo posted to Lee Daniels’ Twitter feed earlier this week, comedian Mike Epps will play the late iconic stand-up Richard Pryor in the forthcoming biopic directed by Daniels, and produced by media mogul Oprah Winfrey.

As Deadline reports, Epps claimed the role after a phenomenal audition that made it difficult to pass over the actor. He beat out several higher profile young actors, including Marlon Wayans (whom, according to TMZ’s, was the favorite choice of Pryor’s kids), Nick Cannon, and Fruitvale Station’s Michael B. Jordan. Additionally, Deadline has stated that both Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway have been auditioning alongside the potential Pryors, with the actresses being looked to for the role of Richard’s widow, Jennifer Lee Pryor.

Fans of the late Richard Pryor should be satiated by the selection of Mike Epps. Though many know of Epps through his roles in Next Friday and The Hangover, »

Star on the Rise: Why Michael B. Jordan Should Be on Your Radar

28 August 2014 1:49 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

There are a number of promising young actors raising their profiles at the moment, but one of the most exciting of the bunch is Michael B. Jordan.  You may remember him breaking your heart during Season One of The Wire or making you swoon with his recurring appearance on NBC’s Parenthood, but he broke out in a big way with last year’s gut-wrenching drama Fruitvale Station, garnering him dramatic clout and even awards consideration.  His most high-profile role is yet to come, as he plays the Human Torch in Fox’s 2015 superhero reboot The Fantastic Four, but the actor has given us plenty of reasons to take notice of his talent.  Head over to Pepsi Pulse to find out why.

Film Scholar David Bordwell pens sharp essay on ‘reflectionism’ in film criticism, New York Times

25 August 2014 1:31 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

David Bordwell, one of film criticism’s eminent scholars and arguably most knowledgeable film historian working today, took to his blog, Observations on Film Art, Sunday to criticize the New York Times for a new series they’ve launched called “The Moviegoers“. In his piece titled “Zip, Zero, Zeitgeist“, Bordwell addresses a trend in film criticism he calls “reflectionism” and cites the Times piece as a somewhat unfortunate example.

Bordwell’s piece questioned whether movies can reflect the “national psyche”, “contemporary history” or “national debates” of the American populace. Do movies and the reception they get at the box office capture the pulse of the nation right now?

“These ideas enjoy an astonishing popularity. They are staples of movie journalism. The trouble is that they don’t hold up,” Bordwell writes, adding, “Movies are worth studying for themselves, not just as channels for Op-Ed memes.”

Michael B. Jordan Talks About Playing the Human Torch in 'Fantastic Four'

15 August 2014 7:50 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When Michael B. Jordan was cast as Johnny Storm (aka The Human Torch) in Josh Trank's The Fantastic Four reboot, many a fan balked due to the color of his skin, claiming this was not a true representation of the Marvel character. The news has been confirmed for a while now, and it's been rather quiet in terms of whether or not audiences will accept this new interpretation of the Human Torch. Speaking with The Source, the actor hints that the color of Johnny's skin may not be the only thing that has changed.

Michael B. Jordan, who won raves for his performance in Fruitvale Station, but may be best remembered for his role as Haddie Braverman's boyfriend on Parenthood, had this to say about taking on such an iconic Marvel character.

"It's been a lot of fun. Johnny Storm is such an iconic character. There's a lot of »

‘Fruitvale Station’ DVD Review

28 July 2014 5:08 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Michael B. Jordan, Melonie Diaz, Octavia Spencer, Kevin Durand, Chad Michael Murray, Ahna O’Reilly, Ariana Neal | Written and Directed by Ryan Coogler

You may recall back in 2009 the news story about a young 22 year old man named Oscar Grant who was shot by a police officer in a train station in an out-of-control situation that was actually caught on camera by on-lookers on their cell phones. These videos were shown by numerous news stations and made their way across the internet.

The story is a sad one, a tragic one, and one that it is impossible to watch unfold without becoming emotional and feeling angry, yet this film is important and director, Ryan Coogler, does a commendable job, especially when one takes into consideration that this is Coogler’s first feature film. We follow the final day in the life of Oscar, played with conviction by star-in-the-making Michael B. »

Axes of Fulfillment: Williams Explores the Lives of Malcontented Young Adults

There’s a certain way to make multiple, intersecting storylines breathe life into a narrative structure, though it’s a rather abused formula of narrative free form often masking the lack of substance at hand. To be certain, director Ryan Piers Williams makes better use of this structure than a variety of recent examples, giving us a quiet, simplistic approach of four interrelated early thirtysomethings in Manhattan instead of bludgeoning with caustic twists a la Paul Haggis. If the material isn’t innately virginal, Williams takes some unexpected turns (not to mention the added attraction of having his wife, actress America Ferrera starring as one of the main characters). At the end of the day, some of their stories in X/Y are stronger than others, but even throughout the more familiar tics, it’s a well-acted quartet, divided »

Required Reading: Gonzo Films and Failing Black Audiences

The best movie culture writing from around the internet-o-sphere. There will be a quiz later. Just leave a tab open for us, will ya? “10 Huge Tentpole Movies That Should Have Been Low-Budget Gonzo Films” — Charlie Jane Anders at io9 offers us an alternative universe where Hancock was closer to Tonight, He Comes. On the other hand, there’s something vilely appealing about gigantic budgets that produce overwrought insanity. “The six-second movie stars” — Noel Murray at The Dissolve checks in with an evolving sense of creative celebrity and the blurring lines between stars and their fans. “Why Think Like a Man Too is proof that Hollywood fails black audiences” — Dominick Mayer at The Week recognizes a thin alleyway of success replicating itself into oblivion. “It’s not that these films are just bad — or derivative. It’s that they’re homogenizing the black film to a point where anybody could sit down and enjoy it, lest »

Nick Cannon as Richard Pryor in Lee Daniels' Biopic? The Actor All But Confirms His Attachment

3 July 2014 8:46 AM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

He may just be publicly campaigning for the part; clearly he's very interested, But he does seem to all-but say that Lee Daniels wants him for the part, and it may just be a matter of key pieces coming together before an official announcement is made. Time will tell. It's a project that's long been in development, with a number of different names attached (both in front of and behind the camera) over the years; A year ago, the news was that the project had changed hands yet again, as Forest Whitaker took over as producer (this came shortly after the huge success of "Fruitvale Station" at the Sundance Film Festival last year - a film he produced).
