I've got some brand new casting rumors going on in Hollywood.
Fast & Furious 7 adds Lucas Black
Lucas Black will be reprising his role as Sean in the upcoming "Fast & Furious 7." This makes perfect sense because of the post-credit scene at the end of "Fast and Furious 6." And also because this series has had the oddest chronology of any film series in history. I was wondering if Black would ever get added to the roster and it seems my answer has arrived. I think if Black focuses his energy in the right way, he actually does have talent. I think he'll be having too much fun with the rest of the cast to be bad.
Black will also be joining newcomers Jason Statham, Tony Jaa, Kurt Russell and Djimon Hounsou. It also looks like Black could be signing on for two more movies after "Fast and Furious 7." So I hope you all are ready for more road rage, I sure am!
Arnold Schwarzenegger joining Avatar 2?
One thing I enjoyed about the first "Avatar" was that it united Sigourney Weaver and writer/director James Cameron for the first time in a long time. They had previously worked together on "Aliens" in 1986. Now apparently for the sequel, you won't believe who is closer to finalizing a deal for the bad guy...
Yep, for the first time in 20 years, James Cameron and Arnold Schwarzenegger will collaborate in the science fiction arena. It seems that Schwarzenegger's character will be the main villain in "Avatar 2." Say what you will about the former California governor, but his comeback has been good so far and working with Cameron once again? The possibilities are endless. I am intrigued with what these two are going to come up with.
Who May take over the James Bond franchise after Daniel Craig?
Now that "Skyfall" has been released, we know now that Daniel Craig will appear in at least two more Bond films before he is done. So maybe he'll do another after these planned two, maybe he won't. I have loved Craig, but the nature of this series to keep Bond vibrant. Today, a name has been circling the internet, an actor who could and may very well take over the popular role after Daniel Craig is done with it...
Yep, actor Tom Hardy has been under serious consideration to take over the part in the near future. I say why not? Hardy is handsome, badass, British and suave. He has had experience in both the action genre as well as the spy genre (see "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy"). I think Hardy has also proved that he has great depth and range. Tom Hardy after Daniel Craig? I say yes!
