The shoujo anime Kaleido Star dazzled audiences ever since its television debut in 2003. Now, I believe it's high time for it to join the ranks of other popular anime and become a live action movie. A bright girl joins a glamarous American circus, facing rivals, making friends and performing glorious stunts on her way to the top. Wouldn't a premise such as this translate amazingly well to a live action medium? Just imagine the possibilities. Careful casting of talented acrobats…
Joseph Gordon-Levitt(500 days of summer,inception) has been rumored by Hollywood Life to be the frontrunner on a short list of names to play the Riddler in "Batman 3". Now apparently Joseph made an extremely good impression on Nolan on the Inception set and Nolan has shown through the years that he is not ashamed of re-using actors in his films. My personal opinion I think it is a great casting choice if they end up casting Joseph it would be a great move he is a young and upcoming talented… Continue
NATHAN FILLION: I was a huge comic book fan as a kid. The only problem I had with comic books is how expensive they got. I didn’t have a lot of money, so I had to be very specific about what I wanted to collect. I think they’re all somewhere in the basement of my folks’ house. I enjoy the art, and I enjoy drawing. I think my printing to this day looks like the printing right out of a comic… Continue

Last month, Spillio Schizhouse and I were swapping ideas on a possible Bebop flick, when Keanu’s involvement was nothing but an unconfirmed rumor...
“It's pretty far off, from what I can tell, which is good.” I wrote to Schizhouse. ”The farther off a project is, the more likely it is that it could dissolve and not go anywhere. All we can do is cross our fingers and hope that Keanu doesn't come close to sullying the…Continue
Talking to the L.A. Times recently Samuel L. Jackson had this to say about his proposed Nick Fury film and the story being written for him and the character's future:
"I saw Jon Favreau at the Scream Awards and we had a conversation. He said, 'I hope things are working out for you because we're writing stuff for you.' Then all of a sudden last week I talked to my agents and manager and things aren't really working that well."…
Okay, under normal circumstances this is exactly the kind of thing I would ignore and delete. i mean Q&A's are one thing, but the casting director? Will they be sending me interviews with gaffers and the people working crafty next? It was so absurd I had to take a peek...and then I had to swear. It's actually interesting. Really interesting. And then I remembered a few folks blogging about how they HATE the current DC casting - so I thought "Alright, I really do have to post… Continue
Okay, in this installment, ANDREA ROMANO lays out how she chooses who she chooses for DC comic movies. Enjoy!
The DC Universe films are very celebrity-laden voice casts. Do you ever purposely cast against types for those roles, and when is it okay to have an actor reprise a role or be cast in consecutive films?
