Thor, Gale, Meryl Streep, and Tom Hanks Star In the Epic, The Groundbreaking… Bitman Begins

Jimmy Kimmel, as is his wont, took to his late night show to have some post-Oscar fun. This year he enlisted the help of celebrities to dramatize that most enduring, most highbrow of subjects: The Internet meme. There’s David After Dentist (starring Joseph Gordon Levitt), Ain’t nobody got time for that (with Queen Latifah), and …I don’t want to ruin it, but Gary Oldman is there.

But Bitman Begins is our favorite, because superheroes. Hit the jump for a behind-the-scenes video in which Meryl Streep talks working with the Hemsworth brothers.

Update: YouTube appears to be giving some people trouble. Sorry if you’re affected. Hopefully everything will be back to normal soon.

Meryl Streep Takes Walt Disney To Task In Emma Thompson Speech

“Some of his associates reported that Walt Disney didn’t really like women,” she began. “There is a piece of received wisdom that says that the most creative people are often odd or irritating, eccentric, damaged, difficult; that along with enormous creativity comes certain deficits in humanity or decency. We are familiar with this trope in our business: Mozart, Van GoghTarantino, Eminem. Ezra Pound said, ‘I have not anyone worth a damn who was not irascible.’ Well I have: Emma Thompson. Not only is she not irascible, she’s practically a saint…Streep then couldn’t resist returning to Disney the man: “Disney, who brought joy arguably to billions of people was, perhaps, or had some racist proclivities. He formed and supported an anti-Semitic industry lobbying group and he was certainly, on the evidence of his company’s policies, a gender bigot,” she said, before reading an actual 1938 letter from Disney rejecting a female applicant to the animation trainee program. “When I saw the film, I could just imagine Walt Disney’s chagrin at having to cultivate P.L. Travers’ favor for the 20 years that it took to secure the rights to her work. It must have killed him to encounter in a woman an equally disdainful and superior creature, a person dismissive of his own considerable gifts and prodigious output and imagination.”Entertainment Weekly reporting on Meryl Streep’s speech on Emma Thompson at the National Board of Review dinner.

Variety cited a line from that letter…

Mind Blown: Meryl Streep Might Be In Talks for The ExpendaBelles

Over a year ago we told you that Millennium Films, the company behind The Expendables, is doing a female-focused version of their action franchise called, yes, The ExpendaBelles. There are certain people you’d expect to pop up in an film like that—say, Sigourney Weaver or Linda Hamilton. Or actresses like Gina Carano and Katee Sackhoff, though not them specifically, because they’ve already hitched their stars to another female Expendables movie.

One name I definitely didn’t expect to see pop up in the first slate of ExpendaBelles casting rumors? Meryl Streep. And yet.
