Why Not Do It With Some Style?

Salma Hayek has been working on adapting one of the best selling books of the 20th century, Khalil Gibran's The Prophet, into an animated film, and has now gathered Liam Neeson, John Krasinski, Frank Langella, Alfred Molina, and Quvenzhané Wallis to join her in voicing some of the characters from the many stories and poems in the famous work.  The project has also attracted a large group of well-regarded animators to direct specific chapters under the direction of writer and director Roger Allers.

Lex Luthor or Jim Halpert Possibly to Star in Guardians of the Galaxy?

Elsewhere on the internet

There have been a ton of Guardians of the Galaxy casting rumors floating around as of late. By my count there've been seven actors reportedly in contention to play the lead role of Star-Lord (aka Peter Quill), the latest being Joseph Gordon-Levitt. And now you can add two more to the list: Michael Rosenbaum, best known for playing Lex Luthor in Smallville, and The Office's John Krasinski. And Drax the Destroyer has gotten in on the rumor mill as well, with three actors reportedly vying to play him.

Muppet Movie Celebrity Cameos May Include Lady Gaga?

We already know that Lady Gaga has a certain affection for the Muppets. Any performer who could actually get Kermit the Frog to drop her off at the VMAs must have some pull with our felted friends (Especially when you consider that it is Muppet company policy to only have one performer per character. Kermit only goes where Steve Whitmire goes). And so if Production Weekly, Hollywood trade magazine, tweets that Eric Stonestreet, John Krasinski and Ed Helms are cast as members of "Lady Gaga's entourage," we say: Well, that sounds pretty likely. The new movie, titled simply The Muppets, began filming two weeks ago, according to writer and star Jason Segel, so it's very likely that any cameo actors who are appearing in the movie are already sure things. Who are the others that Production Weekly mentioned?

Does Anyone Really Care Who Plays The Next Captain America All That Much?

The horserace that is the casting of the next Captain America for the Joe Johnston-directed 2011 movie of the same name -- The First Avenger: Captain America -- has been covered by entertainment media like the nomination of a Pope.

A brief timeline. We've had:

  • An initial pool of contenders including John Krasinski, Chace Crawford, Scott Porter, Michael Cassidy, Patrick Flueger, Mike Vogel, and Garrett Hedlund. Much excitement.
  • The rumor that the role was "John Krasinski's to lose." Maybe so, but he had other obligations, and as the rumor blew up into "John Krasinski is FOR SURE going to be the next Captain America," a lot of people looked foolish.
  • Ryan Phillippe added to the mix; Phillipe and Channing Tatum trying out.
  • Now, the possibility that (gasp!) a Romanian, Sebastian Stan, will get the role.

Each iteration of this has witnessed a flurry of articles, listicles, further speculations, and, of course, fan polls -- not only at superhero movie-devoted outlets like MTV's Splash Page and fansites like ComicBookMovie, but among the heavy hitters. Here's the thing: Does anyone really care who plays Captain America is that much?
