This is just hilarious. I didn’t know that there was spray tan back in ancient Egypt. The actors in Guardians of The Galaxy looked more realistic as blue and green aliens, than these white people trying to look Egyptian. You do know that there are actors that exist in the world today, that don’t require makeup to make themselves darker right? Its like Ridley Scott didn’t think this movie could sell tickets with actual people of actors of color, even when its set in ancient Egypt. I wonder if he would do a movie about the British royal family, and cast nothing but Asians and Arabs in all of the roles.
Breaking: Director of 'The Stand' Wants Matthew McConaughey & Christian Bale
The role of ‘director’ on the upcoming Warner Bros. adaption of Stephen King’s The Stand has been passed around more times than anyone can count.
The latest name attached to direct is Josh Boone, who’s adaption of John Green's The Fault in Our Stars is set to hit theaters later this year. Despite The Stand’s script only being completed recently, Boone went out of his way to cast Palo Alto actor Nat Wolff in an unknown role that was specifically written for him.
Now our insiders are saying that Boone has two other actors in mind for the film’s leading roles. Matthew McConaughey, who struck gold starring in the HBO television series True Detective and the Oscar-winning Dallas Buyers Club, is being eyed for the role of Stu Redman. Stu was previously played by Gary Sinise in the made-for-television adaption of King’s book.
What would a hero be without a villain? The name being brought up for Randall Flagg, the novel’s Satan-like antagonist, belongs to Christian Bale, star of The Dark Knight trilogy and American Psycho.
It is unknown as of yet as to whether or not any offers have been made to these two actors, but keep in mind that The Stand is still early into production and things could very easily change.
Our sources, however, are confident that an offer will be made to these two actors within the coming weeks.
Ever since Disney ate up Lucasfilm, the whole Internet (including us) has been busy speculating about possible Star Wars spinoffs – and then they went and announced the one project we never saw coming… And by “they,” we mean “someone who has nothing to do with Disney/Pixar.” While being covered by pretty much every entertainment site out there, the story itself comes from a single unnamed source by Latino Review, a site also famous for getting the scoop on Christian Bale playing the role of Batman … in the upcoming Superman vs. Batman film.
In one of his lesser known roles, Christian Bale plays Bobby Platt, a mentally slow young man who runs away from his evil stepfather and finds an old man who buries the animals killed on the road. Bale’s character is so beautifully innocent in the movie. One of my favorite roles I’ve ever seen him in. Such a touching film.
The thing I hate about this society is the way we try to compare ourselves to celebrities. I know people (especially on here) think this is a given, but people still do it. When they see a photo of someone and think “Why can’t I look like that?” they don’t automatically take into account hair dressers, stylists, flattering angles, photoshop, airbrushing and all sorts of other techniques people use. With all that pretty much anyone could look gorgeous. And in regards to people keeping in shape or having really nice bodies, what people don’t realise is that celebrities (though I’m mostly talking about actors) have plenty of time on their hands to change the way they look for a role. We see it all the time, and some actors are even known for being able to rapidly change the way they look for a role (Christian Bale comes to mind). As soon as they get a part, sometimes even before, they have top personal trainers and dietitians who help them, whether they need to bulk up or slim down or anything. The actual filming aspect of a movie doesn’t take nearly as much time as editing and laying down the soundtrack and marketing and all that. Actors have this time on their hands, and they have a trainer and a dietitian and for a while, perhaps the course of a few months, they can do basically whatever they want as long as they stick to a set meal plan and work out for x hours. Us normal people don’t have the same schedule at all. If we want to keep in shape or lose weight or something we have to work it around school, our job, possibly a family. Even mega-celebrities who are busy have tons of help; assistants, nannies and all that. Personally, sometimes I want to become an actor simply so that my only job would be following a meal plan, working out and acting.
“Ridley’s point, which I think is a good one, is what does an Egyptian look like?” said Bale. “Especially at that time when this was the empire, so it would be a crossroads of Europe and the Middle East and Africa, and he cast accordingly. I don’t know the fact that I was born in Wales and suffer with this skin that can’t deal with the sun should dictate that Ridley should say, ‘In that case, he’s not the right man to play the role.’ I did the best that I can. I’m certainly not going to pass it up. It’s a hell of a role.”
