COLIN FARRELL IS WIZARD IN
FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM MOVIE
By now, you've probably already heard that Irish star Colin Farrell has joined HARRY PLOPPER prequel FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM! In the story that is set 70 years before the Harry Plopper series of movies, and that is revolving around a magizoologist named Newt Scamander (Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne) as he sets out to chronicle the history and locations of several magical creatures, Colin Farrell will play wizard Graves who meets with Scamander in New York. Katherine Waterston stars as the female lead Tina, Ezra Miller is the magical Kredan and Alison Sudol is Tina's younger sister Queenie. David Yates is directing movie scheduled for November 2016!

'EMPIRE' 2ND SEASON CASTS
MARIAH CAREY AND PITBULL!
When it comes to television, beside the news that Fox is preparing both X MEN live action TV series and PRISON BREAK mini series with both Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell, there's also an info that Mariah Carey and PitBull are the latest music stars to appear in the second season of mega popular EMPIRE TV series, which already has Ne Yo, Alicia Keys, Kelly Rowland, Lenny Kravitz, Ludacris, guest starring alongside Adam Rodriguez and Marisa Tomei as new actors in the cast! Pitbull will perform a song with Jussie Smollett's Jamal. It isn't known whom Mariah will play and will the diva fight with the mother of all divas Cookie Lyon (Taraji P. Henson)! Carey previously worked with show's writer and director Lee Daniels on his critically acclaimed movie PRECIOUS in which she had an unexpectedly stunning performance. There are also talks that EMPIRE will be soon getting a spin-off prequel series focused only on Cookie Lyon!


'THE GREAT GATEWAY' 
JAMIE BACON IS SCOTLAND'S BONNIE PRINCE CHARLIE
Meanwhile, in the news from our epic front, 'Digital Spy' reports that English actor Jamie Bacon will play the lead role in THE GREAT GATEWAY historical movie on Scottish hero Bonnie Prince Charlie. The story of the movie will follow the Young Pretender's escape across the Western Isles, after defeat at Culloden in the failed Jacobite rising of 1745. With filming scheduled to begin later this month including a scene of battle with half a thousand extras, the movie will also star Mhairi Calvey as Flora McDonald, along with Angus Macfadyen and James Cosmo.

  2. Dezzy, I have had a secret crush on Mr. Farrell for some time now. I haven't always felt comfortable admitting it, but that is a very fine photo of him, so... :PPPP

    And I'm kind of up for that movie, too. Should be fun. :)

  3. It's funny how many English and European actors they're casting when it's suppose to be set in America.

  4. Colin looks mighty fine in that picture :)

    We'll see how Mariah Carey does this round. She's kind of hit or miss in her roles.

    1. Guess I chose the right pic then, it was in the spur of the moment.. I first wanted to post a photo of him shirtless holding a lamb in his hands :)

      Mimi is such a crazy lady.... and her music has gone to hell ages ago :)

    2. I agree about her music. Her Christmas album will always be my all time favorite, but once she got rid of Tommy Motola (sp?) and tried to go for a sexy vibe, her music just turned whack.

    3. I loved her best with that WE BELONG TOGETHER album with Wenty Miller in her videos.... it had that lovely sexy mellow vibe.. and HONEY and HEARTBREAKER will always be some of my fave pop songs.... but after that she kinda went repetitive and unoriginal and her thinking she is extremely sexy just gets irritating at some point.... Only Celine Dion deserves to act like diva and nobody else :)

  6. Are you being silly, or is there really a "Harry Plopper"?

  7. Mariah... I love her voice but I hate her (new) songs. The pain is killing me Dezz. What am I to do?

    That's right... work 60 hours a week.
