Spider-Man Animated Movie Has Found Its Miles Morales

Spider-Man Animated Movie Has Found Its Miles Morales
Just months after Sony Pictures confirmed that their animated Spider-Man movie will follow Miles Morales, the studio has finally found their lead voice actor. Shameik Moore (Dope) has signed on to voice this beloved character in the animated movie, with Liev Schreiber also coming aboard to voice an unspecified villain. Now that the studio is in casting mode, it remains to be seen how quickly the other roles will be filled out.

The Hollywood Reporter broke the news today, which comes just over a month after we reported that Ice Cube was being considered to voice Miles Morales' father, although his casting has yet to be confirmed. Ice Cube has previously worked with writers and producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller before, playing Captain Dickson in 21 Jump Street and 22 Jump Street. Phil Lord and Chris Miller were originally slated to direct this animated movie, but they are now only serving as writers and producers,

Prince Harry Can't Stop Smiling After Meghan Markle's London Visit
Prince Harry could not have looked any happier while visiting Naz, a sexual health charity, in London on Tuesday. The young royal continued his bid to promote HIV awareness by meeting with members of the Joyful Noise Choir and encouraging them to not be scared of the stigma attached to their disease. Harry kept things casual for his visit, sporting a blue flannel shirt and the same beaded bracelet his girlfriend, Meghan Markle, has also been photographed wearing. His latest appearance comes just a few days after Harry linked up with Princess Charlene of Monaco at a rugby match between England and South Africa in London. It was also reported that Meghan paid him a short visit over the weekend after she was spotted grocery shopping near Kensington Palace, so perhaps Meghan is the reason for his smile?

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Wear Matching Bracelets

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Wear Matching Bracelets
First comes love, then comes jewelry—just not the diamond kind. Instead, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are sporting what appear to be matching beaded bracelets. The Suits star has worn a strikingly similar band on her wrist for months, easily spotted in photos shared on her Instagram account. Most recently, the 32-year-old Prince of Whales was seen with the bracelet on in London on Tuesday on his way to a rehearsal for the Joyful Noise choir for Naz, a sexual health charity. Prince Harry has been a staunch supporter of providing sexual resources to communities, particularly HIV testing, which he personally underwent live on Facebook to destigmatize the disease.

7 Films New to Netflix to Watch In September 2016, Including ‘Zootopia’ and ‘The Imitation Game’

7 Films New to Netflix to Watch In September 2016, Including ‘Zootopia’ and ‘The Imitation Game’
Next month over on streaming giant Netflix offers up a giant selection of films of all stripes — modern to classic, animated to live action, Oscar contender to…not so much — and we’ve picked seven (well, really 11) that you should watch as soon as humanly possible, either for the first time or as part of a nostalgic little binge. Enjoy.

1. “Footloose” (available September 1)

If you’ve never experienced the original “Footloose” — no, not the one starring Miles Teller, though he is quite serviceable in a charming role — do yourself a favor and check out Herbert Ross’ 1984 classic. Yes, the concept of a town outlawing dancing is bizarre and outdated, but Ross and his cast (including Kevin Bacon in the kind of star-making role that’s so rare these days) really sell the concept, thanks to some serious drama and hard-earned emotion. But there is also dancing! It’s joyous and gymnastic and pure,

'The Notebook' TV Show Happening at The CW

'The Notebook' TV Show Happening at The CW
The CW is developing a new TV series based on the 2004 romance classic The Notebook, which catapulted Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams to stardom. The original movie, based on the Nicholas Sparks novel, earned $115 million worldwide from just a $29 million production budget. Take a look at the official plot synopsis below, courtesy of Entertainment Weekly.

"This series will follow the romantic journey of the two beloved central characters Noah and Allie, at the outset of their blossoming relationship as they build their lives and their future together against the backdrop of the racial politics, economic inequities, and social mores of post-World War II of the late 1940s in North Carolina."

The original movie was also partially set in present day, with the older version of Noah (James Garner) telling his story to an Alzheimer's-stricken Allie (Gena Rowlands), who can't remember her past. The CW's Mark Pedowitz revealed that this

The CW Eyes Notebook Adaptation

Scream Queens’ Keke Palmer Joins Fox’s Grease: Live as Marty

One of Fox’s Scream Queens won’t be screaming but singing for the network in its upcoming live musical production Grease: Live. Keke Palmer, who will be playing Zayday Williams on Ryan Murphy’s comedy-horror series this fall, is joining the cast of Grease: Live to play the sassy Pink Lady Marty Maraschino. Buzzfeed was the first to report the casting news. While some may not know, Palmer, whose TV credits include Masters of Sex, Grey’s Anatomy, and 90210, is actually very experienced when it comes to musicals and singing live. As Buzzfeed notes, she’s performed songs on film (in 2012’s Joyful Noise), on television (in 2013’s CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story), and on Broadway (in 2014’s Cinderella), so taking on the role of Marty won’t be anything radically new for her.

Why Can’t Queen Latifah Keep a Daytime Talk Show?

  • VH1.com
Queen Latifah turns 45 today, and she certainly has a lot to celebrate. She’s a beautiful, talented, and award-winning entertainer (two Screen Actors Guild Awards, a Grammy, plus an Oscar nomination for her role in Chicago) with a wicked sense of humor. She’s getting some early awards buzz for her portrayal of Bessie Smith in the upcoming HBO film Bessie (due May 16), so her acting return is on the horizon. However, with Latifah’s second self-titled talk show getting canceled in November — the last episode aired March 6 — it seems like she can’t quite conquer the couch-and-coffee world. She has all the equipment, so what gives?

The Queen Latifah Show’s first run lasted a little more than two years (1999-2001), and its recent reboot barely scraped the 15-month mark. Now, it’s not like the show didn’t have promise: the September 2013 premiere was the highest rated talk

'Supergirl' Adds 'Smash' Star Jeremy Jordan as Toyman
Jeremy Jordan, who currently stars alongside Anna Kendrick in the big screen romance The Last Five Years, has signed on to play Winslow "Wynn" Schott in CBS' Supergirl pilot. As you may know from the DC Comics, Wynn Schott eventually becomes the villainous Toyman, but it isn't known if we will see this transformation on Supergirl. Jeremy Jordan will guest star in the pilot episode, with the potential to recur in the series.

We first learned about Wynn Schott's presence in Supergirl after character breakdowns released in August revealed that this character is a 20-something programmer for CatCo, the same company Kara Zor-El (Melissa Benoist) works at as an assistant to company founder Cat Grant (Calista Flockhart). Wynn also lives next door to Kara, and harbors a huge crush for her.

The Last Five Years' Richard Lagravanese Films a Musical for Purists

"It's important to think. It's what separates us from lentils." --Richard Lagravanese, The Fisher King

He did it the hard way, like David battling Goliath this past Valentine's Day. Yes, Richard Lagravanese's latest effort, The Last Five Years, a romantic musical of sorts with next to no spoken dialogue, opened against the whip-wielding Fifty Shades of Grey, a syrupy soft core melodrama with perhaps too much dialogue.

The battle's result so far, at least as of this past Monday: $137,945 versus a worldwide take of $485,791,785. Well, at least David got the better reviews.

Yes, Richard Lagravanese, the Oscar-nominated screenwriter of such acclaimed titles as The Fisher King, Behind the Candelabra, The Bridges of Madison County, and Unbroken, which he co-wrote with the Coen Brothers, and the intermittent director of such fare as Living Out Loud and Freedom Writers, is a survivor of numerous Hollywood battles, many won, some lost. Beloved, for example,

Indiewire Springboard: Jeremy Jordan Sings His Way to Stardom in 'The Last Five Years'
Musical theater geeks have been waiting for this one for a while. Richard Lagravenese's adaptation of the Jason Robert Brown musical "The Last Five Years" stars Anna Kendrick, who has been singing her little head off ever since being nominated for a Tony Award as a child, and relative unknown Jeremy Jordan, who starred in "Joyful Noise" with Queen Latifah and Dolly Parton, in the stage adaptation of the Disney film "Newsies" and in a recurring role in NBC's musical theater-themed drama "Smash." The story follows Jaime (Jordan), an up and coming novelist, and Cathy (Kendrick), an aspiring actress, on the journey of their five year relationship. But there's an unexpected twist: Jaime's side of the story is told in chronological order; his songs moving linearly through time. Cathy's, however, moves backwards -- her side of the story is told from the end of their relationship to the beginning.
