Will Arnett Cast As Deathstroke In Teen Titans Go! To The Movies

When we think of the quintessential villains to have been a thorn in the side of DC’s more prominent adolescent heroes, it’s only understandable that Deathstroke be among the first that come to mind. Thus, it makes sense that he show up in some capacity in this summer’s animated feature Teen Titans Go! To The Movies.

Normally, that slot’s been reserved for Ron Perlman, whom we know to have voiced the character in the TV series that gave way to the big screen sibling. But in a way not dissimilar to how the studio acquired a bigger name to voice Superman such as Nicolas Cage, some recasting was apparently in order here.

When it comes to this particular iteration of Deathstroke, he’ll be voiced by none other than Will Arnett, whom we knew to be attached to the project from the beginning. The problem, however,

Nicolas Cage keen to move from acting to directing in “three or four years”

Having dipped his toes into the directing game back in 2002 with the James Franco-headlined Sonny, it seems that Nicolas Cage is keen to get back behind the camera in the near future – and he’s even weighing up calling time on his acting career in order to focus on his directorial aspirations.

“Directing is something I look forward to down the road,” said Cage. “Right now, I’m primarily a film performer and I’m gonna continue doing that for three or four more years and I’d like to focus more on directing.”

Of course, given the rate that Cage knocks out movies, we’ve probably still got another thirty of so performances to look forward to over that time period…

‘211’ Trailer: Nicolas Cage Puts Our Love To The Test With Another Film We Haven’t Heard About

Another day, another Nicolas Cage film that we’ve never heard of gets a trailer.

As we recently mentioned, the “Face/Off” actor has announced that he probably only has another 3 years left in his acting career before he goes behind the camera to pursue directing. This sent our own Will Ashton into freefall, as he pleaded with the actor to never call it quits. Well, as if it wasn’t apparent already, maybe it is time for Cage to hang it up if he’s only going to do films like “211.”

In the trailer for his newest (direct-to-vod) film, Cage plays a cop about to retire.

Tuesday Blus: Come Up w/Fleas for Donaldson’s Sleeping Dog (1977)

Director Roger Donaldson is one of those mainstream minded filmmakers whose body of work quickly and quietly dispelled his Australian origins. His glossy Hollywood movies of the 1980s (1987’s The Big Clock remake No Way Out or 1988’s Cocktail) segued into knock-off genre brands, like his remake of Arthur Penn’s The Getaway in 1994, or B-grade sci-fi classic Species (1995). His most noted item might still be 1998’s Dante’s Peak, one of the two dueling volcano action epics which premiered within the same period. Lately, he’s churned out risible fodder for fading action idols, like Nicolas Cage in Seeking Justice

Paul Schrader: Masterclass and Shows His Latest ‘First Reformed’
Taken from the Rotterdam (Iffr) Blog.Paul Schrader has always been exceptional, Though he is of the period of the first independent filmmakers, Coppola, De Palma, Lucas, Spielberg, he fits into no category. His screenplays and the films he directed are proof of this.Ethan Hawke, Amanda Seyfried and Pau Schrader at a First Reformed event.

His strict Calvinist parents refused to allow him to see a film until he was 18. And what is perfect for his attending Rotterdam, is that his ancestors come from the Dutch.

He came Iffr with First Reformed, starring Ethan Hawke, Amanda Seyfried, and Cedric the Entertainer, a (kind of) spiritual follow-up to his screenplay for Taxi Driver, and in a masterclass he conjured up a cinematic resurrection of a troubled Nic Cage pic. As always with Schrader, the devil is in the detail.

Wesley Snipes

The “Blade” star spent three years in prison after being found guilty on three counts of failing to file a federal income tax returns in 2008. Snipes dodged $7 million in taxes between 1999 and 2000.

Lindsay Lohan

The “Mean Girls” star was caught trying to stiff the IRS three years in a row (2009, 2010, 2011), leading the IRS to seize her bank accounts in 2012. Charlie Sheen eventually helped pay back some of her debt.

Chris Tucker

Rush Hour” star Chris Tucker reached a settlement with the IRS in 2014. A federal tax collector filed a $2.5 million lien against the actor, but it was described as a formality necessary to the settlement.

Dennis Rodman

The former NBA star may need to put his friendship with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un to the test by taking out a loan to pay off the $450,000 he owed to the states of California and Michigan, plus the federal government, in back taxes in 2014.

Teri Polo

The Fosters” star Teri Polo filed for bankruptcy in 2014, with Chapter 11 filings that showed she owed $745,000 in back taxes to the IRS and another $27,000 to the state of California.

Sean Kingston

Lauryn Hill

This Grammy-winning singer paid her tax debt to society, failing to file returns on $1.8 million earned between 2005 and 2007, by serving three months in prison in 2013.

O.J. Simpson

Richard Hatch

The original “Survivor” winner Richard Hatch was convicted of tax evasion in 2006 for failing to pay taxes on the show’s $1 million prize. He served 51 months in federal prison.
