The British star has been linked to the role and Variety has confirmed he is being lined up to play Queen Elizabeth II’s husband in the series, which streams around the world on Netflix. He would replace Matt Smith, who has played Philip in the first two seasons.
It would be the latest piece of key casting news after Olivia Colman was confirmed as taking over the role of Elizabeth for the upcoming two seasons from Claire Foy. Helena Bonham Carter will play the Queen’s sister, Princess Margaret, replacing Vanessa Kirby.
Peter Morgan created the show and has always said that he intended to change key cast members in later seasons, to better portray the main characters as they age.

Rob Letterman (Goosebumps) is directing the project, which is due to start shooting this month in London.
The concept of Pokemon sees players acting as trainers who collect cute but powerful monsters called Pokemon in order to compete in battle tournaments.
The tender drama about a father (Nick Offerman) trying to convince his daughter (Kiersey Clemons) to form a band premieres on the festival’s last night. It marks Haley’s third Sundance film in four years — he previously debuted “The Hero” and “I’ll See You in My Dreams” at the mountainside gathering. It’s a showy role for Offerman, allowing an actor best known for his comedic turn on “Parks & Recreation” to flex some dramatic muscles.
The deal excludes North American rights and was negotiated on behalf of the filmmakers by Endeavor Content. Sony’s Michael Helfand, Joe Matukewicz, and Jon Freedberg negotiated the deal for the studio.
The film co-stars Ted Danson, Sasha Lane, Blythe Danner, and Toni Collette, with original music by Keegan DeWitt, and is set

“Monsieur Paul,” as many knew him, passed away outside Lyon, in Collonges where his restaurant the Auberge du Pont de Collonges has held three Michelin stars for over half a century.
Bocuse’s death was announced on Twitter by Gérard Collomb, France’s Minister of the Interior and former Mayor of Lyon.
“Monsieur Paul was France,” Collomb wrote in French. “Simplicity & generosity Excellence & Style of living. The pope of food lovers has left us. May our chefs in Lyon, as in all corners of the world,
What began as a simple Facebook invitation to protest the election of president Donald Trump has become that and a whole lot more, with this year’s march also standing as a symbol too of the global movement of #MeToo and Time’s Up.
Last year, sister marches in all 50 states and six continents across the world mimicked the Women’s March on Washington, D.C.. Stars like Katy Perry,

A recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Society of Camera Operators in 1990, Bettcher died Dec. 21 at his home in Pasadena, his daughter Nancy Hurley announced.
On The Graduate (1967), Bettcher served as a hand-held cameraman for director Mike Nichols and cinematographer Robert Surtees and pulled off a particularly difficult scene — the one where the camera "acts" as Benjamin (Dustin Hoffman) as he...
Letts is a well-revered actor and playwright who is also a Pulitzer and two-time Tony Award winner. On top of his performance in “Lady Bird” voters also had the chance to see him in another Best Picture contender, “The Post.” After every precursor group completely ignored him, the question needs to be asked of whether or not Letts can defy the odds and earn the first Oscar nomination of his career.
Different films will have different strengths: some will do well with acting, others with writing and directing and some will pop up here and there. To be a strong Oscar contender, a film needs to be represented across a range of races.
Last year, Damien Chazelle‘s “La La Land” was the leader of the pack, with a total of 31 boxes ticked out of 35; it only missed out on the nomination and win boxes for SAG Film Ensemble and a writing win at BAFTA and WGA for Chazelle. It was the heavy favorite,
Many branded content studios aspire to the same success, but NBCU’s branded content operations have a secret weapon few of its rivals can match: It recruits talent from NBCU TV shows to staff branded content offerings.
“At NBC we have a team at the Content Studio that actually maps our organization, to help brands create original content by tapping into storytellers,” said Wendy Wildfeuer, senior VP of NBCUniversal’s Content Studio, on Thursday at the Brand Storytelling conference in Park City, Utah (co-located with the start of the Sundance Film Festival).
Later, Wildfeuer told Variety, “When we launched the Content Studio, we created a new capability where we actually
Williams didn’t actually win the award. He was up for his turn as a creepy psycho nerd in “One Hour Photo” (to me, a rather overrated stunt of a performance), and he lost. There was, in fact, a tie that year, with the award going to both the other nominees: Daniel Day-Lewis for “Gangs of New York” and [link=nm
