It Sounds Like Ocean's 8 is Going to Have More Cameos Than We Thought

If you are a fan of Steven Soderbergh's Ocean's trilogy, you might be happy to hear that Ocean's 8 is going to have more cameos from those original films than we thought. We already knew that Matt Damon was going to show up in the film, but in a recent interview with The Toronto Sun, the actor reveals that there are a few others who will pop up. He says:

"It's just a very small cameo. I'm not really in the movie a lot. ... I think there are a few of us who pop up really quickly."

I just assumed that George Clooney would be back as Danny Ocean considering the movie revolves around his sister. He's also producing the film. However, it would be fun to see Brad Pitt as Rusty, Carl Reiner as Saul Bloom, Don Cheadle as Basher, and the rest of the crew.

‘Downsizing’ Star Hong Chau on Some of Her Most Memorable Red Carpet Looks
Hong Chau, who received Golden Globe and SAG Award noms for portraying a Vietnamese refugee in “Downsizing,” is still thinking about Alexander Payne’s film. “Payne makes films that reward repeat viewing — that will outlive him, you, me and our worrisome times,” she says. The actress, previously a regular on HBO’s “Big Little Lies” and “Treme,” also values individualism in fashion. “I appreciate people who sway to the beat of their own tambourine, like Iris Apfel and Helena Bonham Carter,” she says. “I’m never concerned about being first or on trend. I only want to feel like my most rad ‘me.’”

“This No. 21 dress [right photo] had been in my closet for about a year, waiting for the right occasion,” says Chau. She got just the opportunity when the “Inherent Vice” ensemble — including co-stars Joaquin Phoenix and Josh Brolin, and director Paul Thomas Anderson — received the Robert Altman honor at the Independent Spirit Awards.

BAFTA Awards 2018: Sally Hawkins, Lesley Manville could upset due to English pride

BAFTA might throw a wrench into this year’s Oscar acting races, considering the number of British actors nominated. Assuming the four frontrunners repeat at BAFTA, Gary Oldman (“Darkest Hour”) would be the only British acting winner, with Allison Janney (“I, Tonya”), Frances McDormand and Sam Rockwell (“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”) all hailing from America. We saw last year how the British Dev Patel (“Lion”) upset in Best Supporting Actor over eventual Oscar winner Mahershala Ali for “Moonlight,” so could we see a similar surprise in one of the acting categories? (See all the 2018 BAFTA nominations.)

Oscars flashback: Daniel Day-Lewis (‘My Left Foot’) receives 1st Best Actor from swooning Jodie Foster [Watch]
Jodie Foster could hardly hold back her feelings when announcing the Best Actor winner at the 1990 Oscars ceremony. Watch above as she swoons in saying the name of Daniel Day-Lewis for “My Left Foot,” his first ever victory at the Academy Awards.

In the 1980s, Day-Lewis was a young actor known mostly for British stage work and television, but he was building a reputation as an immersive method actor. He had received good notices for his performances in “A Room with a View,” as the wealthy suitor of Helena Bonham Carter, and as a romantic Czech doctor in “The Unbearable Lightness of Being.”

Daniel Day-Lewis movies: 12 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘Lincoln,’ ‘My Left Foot,’ ‘Phantom Thread,’ ‘There Will Be Blood’
In the summer of 2017 Oscar-winning actor Daniel Day-Lewis surprised Hollywood, London, and the entire entertainment world when he revealed that he is retiring from acting and would make no more films. His final performance in Paul Thomas Anderson‘s recently-released “Phantom Thread” has brought Day-Lewis his sixth Oscar nomination and his eighth Golden Globe nom (losing there to Gary Oldman for “Darkest Hour”).

One of the most respected actors of his generation, Day-Lewis is the only man who has won three Oscars for Best Actor. Those victories were for “My Left Foot” (1989), “There Will Be Blood” (2007), and “Lincoln” (2012). In fact he is one of only three men to win acting Oscars three times; the others are Walter Brennan and Jack Nicholson. In addition, he has won two Best Actor awards each from the Screen Actors Guild and the Golden Globes.

Infinity War’s Paul Bettany No Longer Circling Prince Philip Role In The Crown

The search for a slightly older Prince Philip continues today, as Paul Bettany (Avengers: Infinity War) has officially pulled out of negotiations to join Netflix drama The Crown.

It’s an admittedly disappointing, cursory end to what is perhaps one of the quickest casting ‘sagas’ in recent memory. Alas, though he would have made an excellent addition to Netflix’s Royal Family, and a fine replacement for the outgoing Matt Smith (Doctor Who), Bettany didn’t specify his reason for pulling out of the talks, simply that he’s decided to pass on the project.

Indeed, The Crown now joins an exclusive list of close calls for Paul Bettany, who has previously turned down roles in Masters of Sex and The King’s Speech, the latter of which earned Colin Firth an Oscar.

As for The Crown, Netflix has wasted no time in casting its replacements for Claire Foy and Vanessa Kirby.

It's Official: The Crown Will Introduce Princess Diana in Season 3!

If you've been anxiously awaiting the arrival of Princess Diana on Netflix's big-budget British royal masterpiece The Crown, we have some exciting news. The people's princess will make her debut in season three, according to creator Peter Morgan. A previous report from People stated that "Princess Diana will be introduced toward the end of season three and will be heavily featured in the following two seasons." Did you read that?! We're going to see Diana for a whopping three seasons at least! By now, it should be clear that the third season of the series will leap forward in time. We've already seen some more mature picks for other characters on the show. Claire Foy will not return to play Queen Elizabeth again; instead, Olivia Colman has taken her place. And while we haven't received official confirmation, Helena Bonham Carter is as good as locked in to take over as Princess Margaret.

Roles Where Actors Portrayed Much Older Characters

  • Cinelinx
New Year’s resolutions are a time to work towards a transformation of your body and/or your life. To honor these goals, this month we’re going to look at transformative roles in film. This week we look at some prominent examples of actors played characters that are much older than the actors’ actual age.

It’s one thing to mentally prepare to play a character in a movie or a play. It’s another thing to physically transform yourself in order to better identify with the role. Some transformations are only skin deep; extensive makeup or prosthetics may be sufficient to pull of the necessary look. Other transformations are more involved; many actors may take part in weeks, if not months, of preparations for a role. This can include intense training, specialized diets, and exhaustive exercise routines. The end result of an actor going through such a transformation

Paul Bettany To Replace Matt Smith as Prince Philip in The Crown Season 3

All of the lead actors for Netflix's The Crown are being replaced with older actors for the upcoming third Season. This next chapter of the story is set in the later years of Queen Elizabeth's life. So far Oliva Colman has replaced Claire Foy as the Queen and Helena Bonham Carter has replaced Vanessa Kirby the older version of the Queen’s sister, Princess Margaret.

Now we are learning that Paul Bettany is now in talks to replace Matt Smith in the role of Prince Philip. Paul Bettany is an amazing actor and I think he would be great in this role. Smith did a fantastic job in the role the first two seasons and it's going to be interesting to see how Bettany ends up playing the character.

I know this series isn't for everyone but I've found it fascinating. I never really knew anything about the history of Queen Elizabeth,

Vanessa Kirby's Instagram Photo Is a Huge Hint About Her Replacement on The Crown

Season two of The Crown might have hinged around high-profile moments in Queen Elizabeth II's life, like her dinner with JFK or her trip to Ghana, but it's her younger sister, Princess Margaret, who steals the show. Thanks to Vanessa Kirby's exceptional performance, the fashionable, rebellious princess ends up being the second season's most relatable (and entertaining) character. Fortunately, it looks like Netflix has found the perfect actress to replace her in seasons three and four, since there will be a bit of a time jump. Ocean's 8's Helena Bonham Carter is in talks to take over for Kirby. Netflix has yet to officially confirm the news, but it seems like a done deal thanks to Kirby's latest Instagram photo. The two actresses happily posed for the camera, and Kirby even captioned the cute shot, "Honoured @thecrownnetflix." Seeing them next to each other only further proves how
