MATTHEW GOODE MIGHT BE THE NEW "SUPERMAN"! MALIN AKERMAN TO PLAY THE PORN STAR IN "INFERNO". 1ST POSTER AND TEASER FOR "SPARTACUS GODS OF THE ARENA"

Now, everybody who's been a longer time with HOLLYWOOD SPY knows how much I love Matthew Goode (LEAP YEAR, A SINGLE MAN, MATCH POINT, he was even proclaimed HOLLYWOOD SPY'S BEST BRITISH LAD ), so these are some great news to me: in the current mania around the casting for Zack Snyder's reboot of SUPERMAN, the talented and super charming British actor is apparently the new contender for the role of Clark Kent according to "Movienewz".
As you remember, Matthew already worked with Snyder,  giving an amazing performance in WATCHMEN. In that film he portrayed a similar hero (Ozymandias) with the dual identity and plus is tall enough and has stunning acting talent. This could continue the trend of British talents getting the super hero roles after Andrew Garfield got the role of Spider-man.

And here's the part when I post a story on some unpromising film just as an excuse to thrill you with some hot pics - this time the pics of lovely Malin Akerman who starred with the above mentioned Matthew Goode in WATCHMEN as the beautiful Silk Spectre. She will now replace the infamous Lindsay Lohan in INFERNO, the biopic on the famous porn star Linda Lovelace. Well, we've seen that gorgeous Malin doesn't have a problem with sexy scenes and that she also possesses a certain dramatic potential, so lets believe in her, lets believe that she will bring a stunning portrayal of the disturbing life and work of Lovelace.

And here's the first poster for the upcoming prequel SPARTACUS GODS OF THE ARENA, which is coming to Starz next January. The short TV series will have Dustin Clare in the lead role of the original Champion of the House of Batiatus - Gannicus who lived in a more ruthless time before Spartacus' arrival where honor was just finding its way into the arena. Filling up the space before the second season of SPARTACUS BLOOD AND SAND, this show will also star John Hannah as Quintus Batiatus and Lucy Lawless as his wife alongside Peter Mensah as Doctore and Manu Bennett as Crixus. Check out the new teaser for SPARTACUS GODS OF THE ARENA.

  1. So I think Akerman is million times better than Lohan. But should we have a biopic film about porn star?

  2. indeed she is million times better, and indeed I'm not sure we need a biopic on that porn star :)

  3. Yeah, better choice hands down for Inferno. I think the movie could be viewed as a joke if Lindsey was the main star. Do you think she'll ever make it in Hollywood again? She's a mess! But then again, look at Robert Downey,Jr. (though he is more talented).

  4. Ooh, I love Matthew Goode. He's gorgeous! Certainly tall enough to be superman, but he probably needs to beef up. When Superman Returns came out, I probably was first in line to get a look at Brandon Routh in his tights. And I'd definitely be first in line to check Matthew out. I'm sure he's got the Goodes!

  5. Oh, and I went with Chris Evans by the way in your poll. I'm not on the Christian Bale train, as gorgeous as his body was in American Psycho and all. He seems like a jerk in real life. Big turn off. I also can't get into Chris Pine. Something about him irks me... He seems like he might be kind of douche-y. O'donnell never did it for me (a little too fratty) Chris Evans seems like he is the most manly, and I like that he has a sense of humor about himself.

  6. Wow, that girl is hot! And Matthew is a cute pic for superman as well. Great news.

  7. He...he.. your enthusiasm cracks me up, Dez. Yes I heard about this yesterday, it was all over Twitter. I even tweeted about it that I'm totally ok with him as Supes (better than a lot of other candidates) though I'd like him as The Flash as well (he's in my top 5 candidates, remember? :D) I have the same thought as Myra in regards to him having to beef up tremendously for the role, but I think he can do it. He's for sure tall enough and one can't really train to be taller, he..he... Whoever ends up getting chosen, I'm definitely liking the amount of Brits up for American superhero roles, LOL!

  8. Lohan as Lovelace would probably be another strike against her already bad public image. Not that it would be so great for Akerman either. Then again maybe it's a great redeeming script with a positive message. Hmmm.

  10. Loved Leap Year only because of Matthew Goode!

  11. Oh Dezmond my dear, I don't think you will like me for this but I think he's a horrible choice for Superman, isn't The Man Of Steel supposed to be at least a little beefy? The thing is with Goode is that he can make himself look so different in everything, and is a very talentd actor, but for Supes I'm not convinced and thought Joe (and I'm going to spell his name wrong again) Magellinio has been one of the better choices so far.

  12. Hmm. Not that interested in the first two. But anything Spartacus related is always interesting!

  13. Wonder when they'll make the final decision on Superman's cast?

    ah, I don't know what will be with Lohan, we shall keep our fingers crossed for her. I've always thought that there's a reason why people behave the way they behave .... hope she will find a way out of her problems.

    @Mira, Flixy and Dempsy
    the fact is that Zack Snyder plans to make a CGI Superman suit like the one in Green Lantern with Ryan Reynolds, so Matthew doesn't really need to put on too much muscles, although he already has some (I have hot pics to prove it :))

  15. @Clarissa
    Malin is superhot isn't she? :))) And Matt too :)

    @Arlee
    yep, maybe it will be a good social drama on the issue? Maybe even an award winning one?

    @Kristin
    wasn't he great in LEAP YEAR?

    @Matthew
    can't wait for the SPARTACUS prequel :)

    @Alex
    the casting has just begun a few days ago :) So it will probably last for some time.

  16. Matthew Goode seems a bit weedy for the role of Superman and Lohan needs to retire

    ReplyDelete
  17. weedy is healthy, Lyndylove :)
    Lohan is currently in the rehab, she might retire after that.

    ReplyDelete
  18. yeah but we don't want a healthy superman... we want a BUFF superman ;)

    ReplyDelete
  19. Lyndylove, is this actually you trying to convince me that I should audition for the role myself? :PPP

  20. I so want to see those pics of Matthew!!!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Myra, if you click on the red link letters in the part of the post about him above, you will see one of Matthew's hot pics, but if you put his name in the search field in my right sidebar and read all the posts about him, you will see some more hot and naked pics of him :)

  22. I'll give SPARTACUS a look-see but it doesn't seem to hide the fact that it's imitating GLADIATOR in the trailer!

    ReplyDelete
  23. ah, Lisa, I believe people will see GLADIATOR in anything connected with arena :)
