David Tennant Reveals He Almost Turned Down Doctor Who Role

It’s hard to imagine Doctor Who without David Tennant, as the Scottish actor’s portrayal of the Tenth Doctor remains – and likely always will – one of the most popular versions of the Time Lord ever. The Jessica Jones star has revealed, however, that he almost turned the part down when he was first offered it.

While speaking at a C2E2 spotlight panel, Tennant recalled that his relationship with the show started with his leading role in the BBC’s Casanova, which was made by the same production team as Doctor Who. As a Whovian since childhood, Tennant hoped that he might find himself a part on the show.

“Maybe they’ll give me a nice guest spot, maybe even recurring,” the actor remembers thinking. He even pushed to get himself hired but was given the brush-off. He later discovered that that was because they wanted him to replace Christopher Eccleston in the lead.

Man like a lion, man like a prince: 12 Malayalam songs that deify male heroes

MollywoodFrom 'Drona' to 'Narasimham,' here are 12 hyperbolic songs that introduced the hero in Malayalam cinema. ScreenshotBy, Mini Mathew Around the turn of the millennium, Malayalam cinema started looking to Tamil and Telugu songs for inspiration, notably tunes that eulogise the hero. If you look at some of our superstar films, the hero always gets a swashbuckling entry and is even compared to deities and superheroes in their introduction songs. We bring you 12 such hyperbolic gems that range from silly and laughable to fun or believe-it-or-not. We're also adding a few song taglines that are also out of this world. 'Prince' (1996) It’s not surprising that this Mohanlal film set the precedent for such hero-worshipping ditties in Malayalam cinema. After all the film was directed by Suresh Krishna, the man who created Bhasha, one of Indian cinema’s biggest mass heroes. Mohanlal plays Jeeva, a mafia don who is called ‘the Prince’ in his circles.

Michel Legrand, Oscar-Winning Composer, Dies at 86
Michel Legrand, three-time Oscar winner and composer of such classic film songs as “The Windmills of Your Mind,” “I Will Wait for You,” “You Must Believe in Spring” and “What Are You Doing the Rest of Your Life?,” along with the groundbreaking musical score for “The Umbrellas of Cherbourg,” has died. He was 86.

Legrand died at his home early Saturday in Paris, his publicist told Agence France-Presse. His wife, French actress Macha Meril, was at his side.

His most recent film score was “The Other Side of the Wind,” composed for Orson Welles’ last film, which was finally completed and released in 2018. Decades ago, after their 1974 collaboration on “F for Fake,” the legendary director had asked for another Legrand jazz score. “I take it as a gift from Orson, through the clouds,” he said early last year.

The Paris-born Legrand was active in all musical fields, composing classical works, stage musicals,

‘A Very English Scandal’s Russell T Davies Focuses On AIDs in The 1980s For C4 Drama ‘The Boys’ – Edinburgh
Fresh from the success of A Very English Scandal, writer Russell T Davies is focusing on AIDs in the 1980s for his next British drama project.

The Doctor Who writer (above) has created The Boys, a five-part series for Channel 4. The series is produced by Studiocanal-owned Red Production Company, which recently made Netflix’s Michael C Hall-fronted thriller Safe.

The Boys follows the story of the 1980s, the story of AIDS, and the story of three boys, Ritchie, Roscoe and Colin, across the decade. The young trio, strangers at first, leave home at 18 and head off to London in 1981 with hope and ambition and joy. However, they’re walking straight into a plague that most of the world ignores. Year by year, episode by episode, their lives change, as the mystery of a new virus starts as a rumour, then a threat, then a terror, and then something

Rayland Baxter was ready to get away from the world in the autumn of 2016. In this, the Nashville singer-songwriter was hardly unique, but in the three months that he spent living in an old rubber factory in rural Kentucky, with little more than a mattress, a guitar, and a Wurlitzer, Baxter did something with his political angst: he wrote an album.

David Tennant Reveals How He Was Offered The Role Of Doctor Who

It’s hard to imagine Doctor Who without David Tennant nowadays. While Christopher Eccleston, Matt Smith and Peter Capaldi all have their ardent fans, the man who played the Tenth Doctor is routinely voted the most popular of the revived series, with his tenure in the Tardis – which stretched from 2005 to 2010 – often seen as one of the golden eras of the show.

While speaking with BAFTA in New York recently, the Scottish actor opened up about how he was originally cast in the role of a lifetime. He revealed that he had no idea that this was on the cards when he was suddenly offered the part of the Doctor, as he thought his meeting with then-producer Russell T. Davies was just about giving him a sneak peak at Eccleston’s season.

“I was in Russell T. Davies’s front room, who was the showrunner. He’d just completed season

Donald Sutherland (‘Trust’) on how he could have been kidnapped in the ’70s just like John Paul Getty III [Watch]

Donald Sutherland (‘Trust’) on how he could have been kidnapped in the ’70s just like John Paul Getty III [Watch]
Donald Sutherland stars as oil tycoon J. Paul Getty in the FX drama series “Trust,” which follows the lives of the wealthy Getty family starting with the infamous 1973 kidnapping of his grandson John Paul Getty III. But Sutherland knows a thing or two about how to avoid getting kidnapped. He and his “Trust” co-stars discussed the new series during a luncheon in New York City on March 15. Watch him above.

Sutherland worked on multiple films in Italy in the 1970s, and while shooting “Casanova” (1976) for Federico Fellini he had to wear a “white cloth bag” over his head as a requirement of the kidnapping insurance — “And the other requirement was that they not tell me that they had insurance,” he added. “I wish they had, I could have gone with [Getty].”

To prepare for the role of Getty, Sutherland read the magnate’s New York Times obituary, which was “extraordinary. It

The Mystery of Kinka Usher

The answer to the eternal question: What ever happened to the director of ‘Mystery Men’?

The first thing to notice about Kinka Usher’s Twitter account — which we’ll assume is the real deal, even in the absence of a blue check mark — is its profile description: “I directed the movie that actually made All Star by Smash Mouth popular.” As far as legacies go, we can agree this would be an ignoble one, assuming that’s all there was to it. The description does not clarify the movie in question however.

So then, the second thing to notice, after a bit of scrolling, is the title of said movie: Mystery Men. The film, based on marginal superhero characters from an obscure comic book (where my Flaming Carrot fans at?) and released in 1999, stars Ben Stiller, William H. Macy, Janeane Garofalo, and an almost literally unbelievable list of others. Smash Mouth is indeed heard on the soundtrack
