NICHOLAS HOULT IS "JACK THE GIANT KILLER"! SCOTT SPEEDMAN GOES WW2 IN "EDWIN BOYD". NO LEX LUTHOR IN "SMALLVILLE" FINALE! "CHARLIE'S ANGELS" ADD THEIR HUNKY PROTECTOR

Hear ye, hear ye, we have the new JACK THE GIANT KILLER and it's no one else but young Nicholas Hoult! According to "MovieWeb" he will take the lead role in Bryan Singer's new epic adventure about young Jack, who inadvertently breaks a longstanding peace between the humans and giants when he pursues a princess who was kidnapped by a giant. Nicholas Hoult, whom we shall see this year as Beast in X-MEN: FIRST CLASS, will join Bill Nighy, who will play the two-headed leader of the giants, and Stanley Tucci, who will play the main villain,  in the cast as I reported few days ago.

SHORT HEADLINES ABC's new CHARLIE'S ANGELS show has added Ramon Rodriguez (TRANSFORMERS) who will join Minka Kelley, Rachael Taylor and Annie Ilonzeh, as a hunky, younger version of Bosley, the very tech-savvy protector of the Angels. * Michael Rosenbaum has refused to come back to SMALLVILLE and play Lex Luthor for the last time in show's two hour finale. He played the main villain for seven years before they kicked him out from the show even though he was beloved by the fans and viewers. 

Now here's an interesting plot: as "Variety" reports Scott Speedman will join Brian Cox and Kevin Durand in EDWIN BOYD a true story of a WWII vet and family man turned bank robber, torn between the need to provide for his young family and an unfulfilled dream to head to Hollywood to become a star. He discovers a way to satisfy both needs by robbing banks "Hollywood style", but that leads him down an unexpected path of danger and tragedy.

  3. Rosenbaum should get over it and serve his fans, I think. But too late now, I guess.

    I loooooove him too, I actually stopped watching SMALLVILLE after he left the show

    @Kelly
    what do you mean you didn't realize? I had a post last weekend about all three new angels :)

    @Nahno
    I think he should stand his ground :)

  5. I haven't watched Smallville in years and didn't realize Lex was gone. We was one of the best things about the show.

  7. @Arlee
    indeed he was!

    @Alex
    played mostly in B-movies, and this one will be the same, I guess, since it's an Indie production.

  8. Wow you actually shocked me with the first image! I thought he went bald for that role! Damn! (he never should)

    Anyway some interesting news! Good post Dez =]

    ReplyDelete
  9. oooh, but I absolutely adore Nick's hairdo in that first pic :) Bald men are much hotter than those with hair :))

  10. No Lex Luther, that is sad! Michael Rosenbaum played the part, brilliantly! Best I had ever seen this character portrayed.

    Edwin Boyd sounds good, I like seeing a true story; I hope it has a life changing ending.(in a positive light)

  11. I'm pretty sure he left of his own volition, they didn't kick him out. It was one of those "I want to pursue other avenues of my career" excuse that most of the other actors from Smallville used and then went on to do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. I think Rosenbaum probably has had the crappiest post Smallville career out of them all, so he probably thinks coming back will admit he never should have left, if that's the case he needs to lose the ego. Frankly I got tired of Lex, and I think the show has been better with both Lex and Lana gone, though it would have made a nice finale for him to show up since they've been playing the Lex clone angle this season, now we'll probably get a poor look alike.

    There's also still a slight chance he changes his mind or, he's saying no to keep it a secret.

  12. I have to catch up with the movie world. I'm stuck with reruns of Bachelorrete (can never spell it right but who cares).

  13. A new Charlie's Angels - that should be interesting... :)

  16. There is something about Nicholas Hoults face that bugs me

  17. @Ella
    he really was the best :( And I also hope that the character in the second film will get a positive change

    @Doo
    sa'cu da pogledam :)

    @Answer
    well, I can only hope that they will give him double the money the wanted and that he will then come back, because he deserves all the money he gets.
    PS I know you're not into him :)

    @Ocean
    you really have to catch up with films :)

  18. @Jemi
    it could be if they don't mess it up with bad actresses and bad stories :)

    @Budd
    yep, I like going classic from time to time to freshen things up, especially when I have faces which look great in black and white

    @Zoe
    in a positive or negative way?

  19. Hell yeah Bald=Hot and Sexy.I'm glad Michael stood his ground. I miss him terribly on Smallville and they never should have gotten rid of him.

    ReplyDelete
  20. It looks like that About a Boy's kid has turned into a man and he’s ready to tackle Hollywood :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Hmmm... I stopped watching Smallville after Lex left too. That's interesting he won't come back for the finale. And they kicked him off the show?? Maybe he's difficult to work with?

    ReplyDelete
  22. i opet sam kratko odgovorio haha :)

  23. @Melissa
    glad you agree with me on bald gorgeousness, Melissa :) And I totally agree on Michael too!

    @Jaccsy
    indeed he did! We shall be seeing more of him in the future I reckon ;)

    @Kristin
    maybe he is, but I don't think so, he seems charming and relaxed and cool.

    @Doo
    svratim ja uvek, ne moras da mi saljes depeshu :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Why did they kick Lex out? Well of course he doesn't want to come back.

    ReplyDelete
  25. actually, it seems he's coming back, you'll read it in a few minutes when I publish Sunday's post :)

  26. The Jack movie sounds pretty cool! Hadn't heard if it. SO what does Dezzy have planned for the big Oscar night?? Surely, there is some kind of celebration in store, right? I wanna take part ... I love Oscar night. :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Ah, Dezzy usually hates Oscars :) too many bad actors and films nominated and awarded ... but as always we shall be covering the red carpet :) and you can expect a fashion report the day after :)

  29. Couple years ago I had crush on bald Rosenbaum ;) I wonder if he is playing in other movies somebody who is dark (in mood of course).

    ReplyDelete
  30. Good for Nicholas! I'm excited to see X-Men: First Class w/ the outstanding British cast.

    LOVE that photo of Scott Speedman. I really respect Brian Cox, excellent thespian that Speedman undoubtedly happy to be working with. The premise sounds good too, I'll keep an eye on that one. Thanks Dezzy!

  31. @Vics
    he is, and a hot one as well :)

    @Jonia
    who didn't have a crush on him? :))) I sometimes fancy that all of us bald men have his charms too :)

    @Flixy
    I'm also happy that Nic got the role. He's kinda better than Aaron, although we love him too. And Scott is really photogenic, too bad he doesn't do photo shoots more often.
