Chris Klein Talks AMERICAN REUNION
by Adam Chitwood Posted: July 1st, 2011Writer-directors Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg (Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle) have managed to bring every major cast member back for the fourth entry in the American Pie franchise, American Reunion. The film is currently shooting, and actor Chris Klein recently spoke a bit about what to expect from the film and where his character Oz is now:
“[Oz] has moved to a beach house in Malibu. He’s found his way to Hollywood, where he works as a sportscaster on an NFL show. And he has a young girlfriend, Mia, played by Katrina Bowden (30 Rock), who is really, really funny. He gets his invite to the reunion and decides to go with his girlfriend.”Hit the jump to see what else he had to say about the sequel. In addition to Klein, the film reunites Jason Biggs, Seann William Scott, Alyson Hannigan, Thomas Ian Nicholas, Eddie Kaye Thomas, Tara Reid, Mena Suvari, Eugene Levy, Jennifer Coolidge and Shannon Elizabeth. http://collider.com/chris-klein-american-reunion/100022/
Adrianne Palicki to Play Lady Jaye in G.I. JOE: COBRA STRIKES
by Matt Goldberg Posted: July 1st, 2011Adrianne Palicki will play the female lead in Jon Chu’s G.I. Joe: Cobra Strikes. According to Deadline, Palicki will play Lady Jaye (pictured above in what I seriously doubt is an approved military uniform). The cast for the film continues to fill out as Paramount positions the sequel to be one of their summer 2012 tentpoles. Palicki joins returning cast members Channing Tatum (who plays Duke), Ray Park (Snake Eyes), and Byung-hun Lee (Storm Shadow) along with new recruits Dwayne Johnson (Roadblock), RZA (Blind Master), D.J. Cotrona (Flint), and Elodie Yung (Jinx). One of the major roles yet to be cast is original G.I. Joe, Joe Colton. Deadline reports that Bruce Willis is the top choice for the role and he would certainly add some star power to the flick.
Hit the jump for a brief bio on Lady Jaye. G.I. Joe: Cobra Strikes opens August 10, 2012. http://collider.com/gi-joe2-adrianne-palicki-lady-jaye/99998/
Ben Foster Joins PROMETHEUS? Official Synopsis Revealed
by Matt Goldberg Posted: July 1st, 2011Ridley Scott’s Alien-prequel-but-not-an-Alien-prequel Prometheus already has a stellar cast. The sci-fi flick features Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Noomi Rapace, Idris Elba, and Guy Pearce, and now JoBlo is reporting that Ben Foster has signed on. Almost everything about the film is being kept under wraps so we don’t know what role he’ll play, but Foster is a fantastic addition to any cast.
We’re still awaiting official confirmation from Fox on Foster’s casting, but the studio has dismissed yesterday’s rumored synopsis. Instead, they’ve provided an official synopsis which deserves some kind of award for vagueness. Here’s what the synopsis tells you definitively: the movie takes place in outer space (and we already knew that). Hit the jump to read the synopsis and learn nothing. Prometheus opens in 3D on June 8, 2012. http://collider.com/prometheus-ben-foster-synopsis/99966/
