She recently dyed her brunette locks red for her role in Paramount's Ninja Turtles.
But Megan Fox wasn't too eager to show off her tresses on Sunday. The 27-year-old actress donned a baseball cap as she got ready to board a flight with husband Brian Austin Green and nine-month-old son Noah at Los Angeles International Airport.
The actress displayed her toned legs in skintight leggings paired with an over-sized grey sweatshirt and Nike trainers.
Megan carried a floral baby bag over her shoulder as she walked a few steps ahead of Brian, who was pushing the stroller.
The star wore her reddish brown locks in loose waves over her shoulders and appeared to be wearing minimal makeup, opting to display her naturally flawless complexion.
Keeping it casual: The 27-year-old paired her leggings with a grey sweatshirt and Nike trainers as she boarded her plane
Bold accessories: The Transformers star carried a floral diaper bag as well as a large leather handbag
Brian, meanwhile, looked confident and in-charge as he manned the stroller.
The 39-year-old kept it casual in neon Adidas trainers, shorts and a white T-shirt.
He carried a large grey backpack on his back and shielded his eyes with black sunglasses.
Daddy duty: Brian took charge and confidently pushed Noah in his stroller
Peekaboo: Noah could be glimpsed through the side of his stroller, his tiny bare feet poking out
Megan recently admitted motherhood had shifted her perspective on her career.
'I recognise the blessings when they come – like, I recognise I’m so lucky to work with Judd [Apatow, in This is 40] – but the ultimate satisfaction for me is being with my son,' Fox told Marie Claire UK.
'All I wanted to do my whole, whole life was have a baby and, now, I’ve finally done it. I just want to give Noah as much of myself as I can. And I want to have more kids. That is where my heart is.
'It’s very hard for me to do this stuff, because I feel like this isn’t my job any more. My job is to be with him.'
Cool and casual: Brian wore Adidas trainers, shorts and a white T-shirt while carrying a grey backpack on his back
Megan has been shooting the reboot of the beloved comic book franchise about crime fighting mutant turtles for a few months now.
She stars as April O'Neil, the Turtle's love interest in the story, who always wore a yellow jumpsuit, which is homaged through a yellow leather jacket in this latest, Michael Bay-produced version.
Fox dyed her hair reddish brown for the role, which has spurned unsubstantiated reports that after a couple dye jobs to get the color right, the actress's hair began to fall out.
According to a source who spoke to Star Magazine: 'After dying [Fox's] mane red for her role as April O'Neil in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle remake, producers hated the result and sent her back to the salon for a redo, which wreaked havoc on her once-lush locks.'
'She went [back] to a different stylist, and they ended up using a metallic hair dye that reacted to the initial product. Next thing you know, her hair started falling out in clumps!'
However, there has yet to be any photographic evidence of this and friends of the This is 40 star have repeatedly declared it not to be true.
Does any character on "Devious Maids" understand boundaries?
Of course not! And that is why it's so much fun.
If we wanted real life, we would turn off the TV. But it's a fair chance in real life no one is polishing our Rolls Royce, wearing couture gowns to dinner or accompanying us to assist in the ever-so-difficult chore of selecting vegetables at the market.
The third episode does not disappoint. Each character is only more of what he or she was in the pilot and second episode. So far, only Genevieve (Susan Lucci) is proving truly good, but she is ridiculous, which works so well on her.
From the beginning, we knew Marisol (Ana Ortiz) was different, not a real maid. She's too confident. That's not a dis to the other maids, as no one is exactly a shrinking violet, but there is a level of subservience in the work that Marisol does not have.
Her job is far more important than cleaning. She needs to gather information fast to spring her son from jail. He's the lone suspect in the murder that launched the series, and if a few social niceties fall by the wayside in her pursuit of her son's defense, so be it.
With that mind, the top five boundary breaks of the episode are:
Boundary Break 1: Olivia (Valerie Mahaffey) the spurned ex-wife of Michael (Brett Cullen) apologizes to Marisol for her boorish behavior at a dinner party. Marisol, forever instructing everyone in how to behave, tells Olivia to direct her mea culpas to trophy wife Taylor (Brianna Brown) since it was Taylor's dinner party Olivia wrecked, and she is standing next to Marisol in the produce section of a market.
"I don't apologize to whores," Olivia says.
She's not speaking metaphorically.
Nope, Taylor was indeed trading money for sex when she met Michael.
Boundary Break 2: Taylor confides her past to Marisol. Clearly this young woman needs friends, but she tells Marisol way too much and Marisol gives up nothing about her life in return. Taylor even asks Marisol to be with her when she breaks the news to her husband. Bad idea. Marriages tend to get so crowded when more than two people are in them.
Boundary Break 3: Rosie (Dania Ramirez) is far more involved in her employers' marriage than she would like. That happens when you walk in on your employer, Peri (Mariana Klaveno), mid-tryst, as Rosie did last week. The fall-out from that awkward moment starts. Peri screams at Rosie, definitely crossing the line. When Peri's husband, Spence (Grant Show), gives Rosie a large check, tells her it's a secret, then hugs her for too long - as his feelings for her grow very apparent -- it's a whole new boundary that's broken.
Boundary Break 4: We learn this week that Adrian Powell's hobby is "giving prostitutes" to his pals. When Adrian and Evelyn (Tom Irwin, Rebecca Wisocky) have one of their oh-so-loving married couple conversations, he refers to their houseguest, who's also Evelyn's ex.
"I am going to introduce Maxwell Rose to wanton carnality for his own middle-aged good," Adrian says. "The fact that it will hurt you is just a bonus."
Boundary Break 5: Adrian remains so creepy, he needs two categories. The final scene, where Adrian sequesters himself, presumably to watch his wife's ex-lover and a hooker, well, that pretty much defines boundary breaking now, doesn't it?
Meanwhile, Carmen's (Roselyn Sanchez) career is finally getting launched. She talks Sam (Wole Parks) into helping her, but he seems done with chasing her when he watches her allow a hit maker record producer paw her.
Carmen knows what she's doing, and tells Sam, who's besotted with her, that she knows she won't have too many more chances. The scene where she's working on losing her accent and knows that she has probably lost good guy Sam isn't a boundary-breaker -- it is a heartbreaker.
More hearts are broken when Zoila (Judy Reyes) continues to try to thwart the budding romance between her daughter, Valentina (Edy Ganem) and Genevieve's son, Remi (Drew Van Acker), who gets his obligatory shedding of the shirt.
As anyone watching suspected, Zoila's heart was broken -- and maybe Valentina is the product of the union - by a rich guy. We find out it was Henri, Genevieve's brother, who will be visiting soon.
We have high expectations that he, too, will break some boundaries.
Britney’s Las Vegas residency contract should be signed on Monday, an insider tells BreatheHeavy.com.
One reason for the longer than expected delay was because Britney and her camp wanted a large sum of money up front, and Caesars Entertainment wasn’t willing, continued the source. Recently, things became dicey between the two groups because Team Britney felt the public now expected Britney to perform in Las Vegas and yet a deal had yet to be finalized. Until now!
Seeing how this deal’s gone down over the months… nothing’s a surprise. Don’t hold your breath for an announcement tomorrow, but fingers crossed for an inked deal behind the scenes.
Jennifer Aniston is known for her healthy lifestyle, but she admitted she once ate a Big Mac and things didn’t end very well.
“I’ll never forget when Justin [Theroux] and I were on a road trip and we were so hungry,” she told her stylist, when the two interviewed each other for NY Mag. “The only thing around was McDonald’s. I think I ordered a Big Mac. Wow, my body did not react well to that!
“It was like putting gasoline in a purified system,” she continued. “I am always trying to eat organic and natural foods, so that just made my stomach turn and made me feel terrible. And I think what you put in your body, as well as stress, is reflected in the quality of your skin.”
In the interview, Jennifer also revealed her tip to keeping her skin looking good.
“I can never stress enough to my friends that they must do as I do … hydrate, hydrate, hydrate,” she said. “Drink lots of water, get enough sleep, exercise, and eat a clean healthy diet, whenever possible.”
What's the nastiest thing you've eaten?
With the release of the Man of Steel come and gone, fans have finally gotten the answers to our burning questions: will Henry Cavill measure up as Clark Kent? Will the more realistic tone mesh with Supes? Will the action live up to what we expect from the Man of Steel?
But there is another question that was also answered, one of equal importance, but that doesn’t seem to have been asked as much: what about Lois?
Lois Lane is without a doubt the second most important person to the Superman mythos, barring the man himself. Her role is pivotal to the success of any Superman undertaking, and it’s critical that anyone who portrays her be up to the task. Prior to Man of Steel’s release, I had every faith that Amy Adams would be awesome as Lois, and for the most part I was right. But as we are graced with yet another Lois Lane, I oftentimes look back and ask myself, who did it best?
There have been as many versions of Lois as there have been of Clark, and whenever the question arises as to who was the best, several names are usually mentioned: Margot Kidder, Teri Hatcher, Noel Neill. But, friends, I offer to you that the best Lois Lane we’ve been graced with thus far is Erica Durance. Here are 5 reasons why:
5. She Had The Temperament
Lois is, in Clark’s own words, ‘a handful’, and hat’s putting it mildly. As often as Lois Lane is reinvented, one thing typically remains intact: her no-nonsense attitude. Erica Durance brought this to the fore with her depiction, manifesting the spirit of an intrepid, take-no-prisoners reporter well before she even became one.
Durance as Lois had the wit, sarcasm attitude down to a science, more than once making Clark look like an incompetent, and going toe to toe with resident snarkers Lex and Lionel Luthor, and Tess Mercer on a regular basis. She always had some witticism at the ready, whether she was facing a crowd of murdering zealots, a psychotic plastic surgeon, or freaking Darkseid, and even though the temperament is something that just about every version of Lois has to some degree or another (heck, Kidder/Lois flat out threatened to shoot Clark to find out his secret), not many of them were able to exercise it to the extent that Durance was able to.
4. She Wasn’t A Typical Damsel In Distress
The issue I often have with how Lois is depicted is when it seems she exists for the sole purpose of giving Superman someone to save. Granted, Supes saves everybody at some point or another (that being, of course, the nature of his job).
The problem comes when Lois is depicted as not being able to tie her own shoes without needing rescuing. Being a reporter in Metropolis isn’t a hazard-free job, yet she was doing just fine before Superman showed up. Granted, as Smallville went on Clark ended up saving her on a number of occasions.
But it never felt like he was getting her out of situations she couldn’t get out of herself. The two functioned as more of a team (especially in later seasons), rather than him acting as her personal Deux Machina, and she continued to function as, not just another person for Clark to save, but Clark’s partner. She was partly responsible for helping him come up with the bumbling persona he used to hide his secret identity, she knocked a helicopter pilot unconscious to keep him from finding out that secret.
Additionally, the show went to great lengths to establish her as a hero in her own right, counting Lois as a member of the pre-Justice League. And when Darkseid’s planet was hurtling toward Earth in the show finale, it was Lois who was aboard Air Force One, convincing the President not to fire nukes at it. Durance/Lois wasn’t someone preventing Superman from doing his job, like Kidder/Lois or Bosworth/Lois, but she helped him do his job, she grounded him and, in the end, she made him a better Superman.
3. She Had The Physicality
I’m not talking about looks per se (those are pretty obvious). I’m talking about physical presence. Since the late 80’s and continuing on with the current New 52 relaunch, the Lois of the comics is an army brat, her father, Sam Lane, being a General in the US Army. As such, Lois is supposed to be a fair hand-to-hand combatant who knows how to handle a weapon and isn’t afraid of a fight. Durance, more than anyone prior, portrayed her as just such a person.
Throughout her tenure, Durance/Lois got into more than her fair share of fistfights. In one episode, she claims to be a third degree black belt, and in another, she’s arrested for allegedly paralyzing a college football player via kick to the groin (granted, it turned out the paralysis wasn’t her fault, but she did knock him on his back with said kick). In another episode while Clark was de-powered and they were both trapped in a military compound, it was Lois who took the lead in trying to get them out alive, and she did it while armed.
In short, Durance/Lois not only kicked way more butt than any previous or prior incarnation thus far, but all the while she looked believable doing it.
2. She Had A Life Outside Of Clark
Granted, as it is, for the most part, Superman’s story, events tend to revolve around him. But the key to a great supporting character is their life outside the story; how their personality has been developed and shaped before we the audience are introduced to them, so that they impact events in a meaningful way.
More than any other Lois, Durance/Lois doesn’t feel like she exists only to be Superman’s love interest. The first time we meet her, she’s come to Smallville to investigate her cousin’s death. It’s explicitly clear that she isn’t there for him. In fact, she and Clark initially can’t stand each other. Throughout her first few appearances, plenty of the situations she finds herself in have nothing at all to do with Clark. She’s had her own relationships just like Clark has (more so, actually), and has several more after she comes to Smallville.
Later on, she ends up staying in Smallville not for Clark, but in order to help Jonathan Kent as his campaign manager while he runs for senator. It isn’t until later that Lois and Clark’s lives come closer together and they begin to actually have feelings for each other, and this gives us time to get to know Lois as Lois the person rather than as Lois Superman’s love interest.
1. She Was With Us The Longest
Coming on as a guest star in season four, promoted to regular in season five, and remaining throughout the remainder of the show’s five seasons makes seven consecutive years of Durance/Lois, longer than any other actress was in the role. And while time doesn’t necessarily mean things will improve, it can definitely help. In Durance’s case, it definitely did. Not that there was anything wrong with her portrayal from the beginning, but by way of character development, we got to watch her grow from a troublemaking teenaged Lois to the reporter we all know and love.
That journey was, much like Clark’s own, fascinating to watch unfold. Being in love with Superman wasn’t the major issue in her character arcs. She had her own struggles to deal with, like finding her place and purpose in the world, and deciding how best to do what she believed was right, which gave her depth that we often don’t get to see from Lois Lane.
LOIS (Erica) FOREVER!
Spencer Clawson, Big Brother 15 Cast Member, Probably Getting Fired Soon
Spencer Clawson is the latest Big Brother 15 cast member to face the real world fallout from racist and homophobic slurs made on the show's live feeds.
Union Pacific railroad, which employs him as a conductor, says:
"Mr. Clawson is on unpaid leave of absence while participating on Big Brother. Union Pacific does not condone his comments."
It seems unlikely that he'll be paid by them again after this.
Clawson was recently seen/heard on Big Brother cameras calling a gay houseguest "Kermit the F**" ... and praising Adolf Hitler as a "gifted speaker."
UP continued its statement by saying that it is currently "acting in accordance with Collective Bargaining Agreement terms regarding Mr. Clawson."
Basically, they're exploring their options regarding his termination.
A group of cast members on BB15 have been under scrutiny since being overheard bashing fellow contestants on the live, uncensored, online feeds.
CBS edits the thrice-weekly broadcasts, but the feeds are as-is.
Clawson isn't alone in this predicament. GinaMarie Zimmerman and Aaryn Gries have already lost their day jobs due to racist comments they made on the show.
Hope all the vile assholes get fired from their jobs. But my question is WHY hasn't CBS kicked these assholes out of the house? What are they waiting for.
I hope someone sinks JEremy's boat soon cuz he deserves it.
America's Next Top Model is gearing up for a new season, its first co-ed "cycle" to date, although it's tough to imagine Tyra Banks and pals coming up with anything truly new. This will be the show's twentieth cycle! That's a lot of people getting lost on go-sees, a lot of teetering on too-tight heels, a lot of weepy makeovers and grouchy in-fighting, and a lot of photo shoots where people have to confront fears (of bugs, heights, drowning). This all started ten years ago, though, in one of the best seasons, debut or otherwise, that any reality show has ever had. That first season of Top Model is unimpeachable.
ANTM helped usher in the era of profession-based reality contest shows, and plenty of good ones followed: Project Runway on Bravo, Dream Job on ESPN (I am the only person who liked this show, but I loved it enough for all of us), Design Star on HGTV — hell, even The Apprentice. But Top Model still feels like the gold standard, partially because it stayed good for so long. Season two gave us the amazing Shandi phone fight ("You had sex!?"). Season three had Yaya's "respeito" T-shirt. Season six had Jade claiming that elephants were part of the "dinosaur family." CariDee, Jaslene, Saleisha — even up through season ten's winner, Whitney, things were going okay.
But nothing has ever quite lived up to the perfection of season one. The majesty of Elyse's hyperarticulate griping. The wonder of Adrianne's weird, snoozy monotone. The agony of Robin's exaggerated facial expressions and proselytizing. The ridiculousness of Ebony getting her lotion all over the doorknobs in the house. This was only ten years ago, yet the reality-TV landscape is so very different now. In cycle one, many of the contestants didn't seem to know how to do the "confessionals," which is something today's reality-show contestants learn to do in the womb. The editing was pretty straight-forward, unlike the super-choppy and dishonest patchwork storytelling we've come to expect from this kind of show. Cycle one of ANTM had conflicts about Christianity and atheism, for crying out loud. Tyra Banks seemed earnest back then. Jay Manuel seemed like an actual human creature. Janice Dickinson had an ostensibly stable iteration of her face. Kimora Lee Simons was impossible to impress. Were we ever so young?
So, happy ten-year anniversary, Top Model. While the revolving door at the judges' table, the grossness of Tyra's constant idiotic catchphrases, and the repetitiveness of the challenges eventually eroded my passion for the series, my devotion to season one remains pure and true — even though I am still a little miffed that Elyse didn't win.
the show started flopping after it lost The World's First Supermodel, really. But full-length episodes of The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency are available online! highly recommend

Teen Wolf season 3, episode 6 just finished airing on the East Coast! Come read our recap and discuss “Motel California” with your fellow fans.
Teen Wolf season 3, episode 6 “Motel California” began with a flashback to the 1970s. We see a man enter a hotel room, injured and bitten. He puts a shot gun to his head and pulls the trigger, and afterwards we get a close up of his license and see the name Argent.
Flashing to the present, the cross country bus stops at the same hotel for the night. Lydia feels apprehensive, but doesn’t have much choice. It’s the closest hotel with the most vacancies.
Stiles tells Scott his list of suspects, the main ones being Cora, Deaton, and Lydia. He doesn’t trust the other two, but it’s obvious he doesn’t like suspecting Lydia. However, they can’t deny something strange is going on with her.
Meanwhile, Ms. Blake takes Derek to his apartment after he comes to her bleeding and half dead. He seems very touch and go for a while.
Teen Wolf Season 3 Motel California Boyd
Back at the hotel, things start to get strange right off the bat with Boyd acting more stoic than usual (who thought that was possible?) and Scott being a little too forward with Allison. Lydia goes to the front desk to get new towels and sees a number on the wall. The woman tells her the hotel is number one in terms of most guest suicides — 198 and counting.
Lydia hears voices coming from another room. They belong to a young couple, who promptly makes a pact and kill each other. When she and Allison go to investigate, they don’t find anything. The others begin to have their own experiences, with Boyd finding a young girl in the freezer and Isaac thinking he hears his father yelling at him.
When Lydia and Allison go back to the front desk, they notice that the number on the wall has gone from 198 to 201.
Next, Scott gets a call from his mother. She’s outside the hotel room with Deucalion, who proceeds to slash her throat open. It’s another hallucination (thank God), and is followed up with Ethan and Boyd having their own experiences. It seems Ethan has some fears having to do with his brother, and Boyd appears to have witnessed his sister dying.
Lydia is, naturally, upset when Stiles tells her he’s wondering if she’s behind the murders. She walks away, but stops when she hears a baby crying. She says someone is drowning, and as she comes to this conclusion, we see Boyd attempting to kill himself in the bathtub.
Lydia and Stiles break Boyd and Isaac of their trances by putting flames to them. As they leave the hotel room, they come upon Scott holding a flare over a can of spilled gas. Stiles won’t let him go out like that, though, and risks his own life, telling Scott he’ll have to take him out too.
Stiles saves Scott, but something blows the flare toward the gasoline. Lydia knocks them to the ground, but when she looks at the fire, she sees the Darach amongst the flames.
Later, Lydia figures out that the Darach put wolfsbane in the coach’s whistle, and that’s how everyone was posisoned.
At the very end of the episode, we see Chris visiting none other than Gerard, who proceeds to tell him that Deucalion is the Alpha that bit his uncle, the man we saw commit suicide in the beginning of the episode.
I'll need to rewatch to be sure but this my fav episode so far even tho its technically a filler. The creepy factor was just right plus the continuity/character development/Team Human/Sciles Bromance...even Dethan/Jennerek (as limited/lulzy worthy as it was). I vote Christian Taylor to write/direct all future episodes.
NBC's new series Hannibal recently ended its first season but fans are already hoping for news on the upcoming second season airing in 2014. Showrunner Bryan Fuller last left us with the news that he had reached out to David Bowie to play Dr. Lecter's Uncle, Count Robert Lecter. No information besides the initial offer has come up, but we do have some sort of an update for you today. What exactly do you know about the actor who plays Hannibal Lecter?
Mads Mikkelsen is a seasoned actor hailing from Denmark who started acting in 1996. You might recognize him as the villain from Daniel Craig's first movie as James Bond, Casino Royale, or maybe even his role in King Arthur opposite Clive Owen (and Hannibal co-star Hugh Dancy). Also, director Nicholas Winding Refn (Drive) used to consider Mikkelsen his muse before coming overseas and meeting Ryan Gosling!
But before his impressive acting resume, Mads was a trained gymnast and dancer! Is it hard to picture the serial killer you know from Hannibal as a ballet dancer? Well, here is an old video to help you out (keep your eye on the guy with the red handkerchief):
Perhaps this means that Mads will bust out some dance numbers in season two or Hannibal? Maybe one with Bowie, too!
In terms of the second season and how Fuller and his team are planning to approach it, he says that he will not be relying on the literature as much as he did in season one."We're going to see Will Graham institutionalized and what we know from 'Red Dragon,' the backstory that is given, which is very, very thin, explains that Will Graham was so psychologically compromised from investigating the Minnesota case that he had to be institutionalized. And that's sort of one sentence that we can do quite a bit with," Fuller explained.
Billboard has released their weekly top 40 radio update. (July 8, 2013)
Gomez, who has been accused of using payola to get her #1 (which evidently failed), released a video of her reaction of her topping radio (on an unofficial chart found by her team), which can be seen below.
"Come & Get It" hasn't hit #1 on radio yet, please request it as soon as you can

In celebrating the 10 year anniversary for her debut album ‘Dangerously In Love‘, The Official Charts Company have released Beyonce’s highest selling British singles, listing them from the highest to smallest using sales generated by them since release.
With most of these cuts shifting what they sold via physical copies, even we were surprised to see what came out on top and which songs didn’t make the cut.
I didn't know Beyoncé's last #1 hit was in 2008, why would she write a song asking bitches to Bow Down when she's struggling to get a hit?
such a good episode!
boo hiss go away ty.
Responding to reports of a nascent boycott against the upcoming movie version of his beloved 1985 sci-fi novel Ender’s Game because of his stated opposition to same-sex marriage, author Orson Scott Card has released a statement exclusively to EW. He declares the gay-marriage issue “moot” due to last month’s Supreme Court rulings. He also makes a plea for gay-marriage supporters to “show tolerance toward those who disagreed with them when the issue was still in dispute.” His full statement is below.
Ender’s Game is set more than a century in the future and has nothing to do with political issues that did not exist when the book was written in 1984.
With the recent Supreme Court ruling, the gay marriage issue becomes moot. The Full Faith and Credit clause of the Constitution will, sooner or later, give legal force in every state to any marriage contract recognized by any other state.
Now it will be interesting to see whether the victorious proponents of gay marriage will show tolerance toward those who disagreed with them when the issue was still in dispute(well, coming from this gay person, i hope you and your ilk die as painfully as possible, so...).
- Orson Scott Card
The best-selling author has come under fire in some quarters for his stance on same-sex marriage. In 2009, he joined the board of the National Organization for Marriage, which opposes same-sex unions. That year, he also wrote a piece in Mormon Times that railed against “dictator-judges” and argued, “Married people attempting to raise children with the hope that they, in turn, will be reproductively successful, have every reason to oppose the normalization of homosexual unions.”
Those views have prompted a backlash. In March, artist Christopher Sprouse backed out of plans to work on a Card-penned Adventures of Superman comic book for DC Comics. More recently, a small online group called Geeks OUT announced plans to boycott Summit’s upcoming $110 million Ender’s Game movie because of Card’s anti-gay-marriage views. “Hopefully, it will send a message that people who are actively vocal against the LGBT community don’t really have a place within the greater geek culture,” says Geeks OUT board member Patrick Yacco.

Writer/director Neill Blomkamp is still very much at the start of his career, his second effort, Elysium, not due out until August, but already he's shown that he works at a fairly deliberate pace. It's been nearly a full four years since the release of District 9 in 2009, and Blomkamp has spent that time tending to the details of Elysium and getting it through production and ready for theaters. It's entirely possible that we won't be able to see his third feature, Chappie, until 2017, matching the time gap, but at the very least Blomkamp is starting to put the pieces for it together now.
As we previously reported, the movie will once again unite Blomkamp with actor Sharlto Copley, who is set to play a police robot in the movie. THR says that should Patel sign on the dotted line he will be playing the film's "human lead, a young man in the impoverished town."
According to The Hollywood Reporter, actor Dev Patel, best known for his starring roles in movies like Slumdog Millionaire and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, is now in early talks to join the cast of Chappie, which has been described as a sci-fi comedy. Set to be both directed and co-written (with Terri Tatchell) by Blomkamp, the movie is based on a short film that the filmmaker made called Tetra Vaal. While it's unclear at this point how the idea will be stretched into a feature length story, the short was a fake commercial for a highly-advanced robot that could be used during police exercises in the slums of South Africa. You can watch the short below.
In addition to Patel's film work - which also includes M. Night Shyamalan's The Last Airbender - the young actor has actually had a great deal of success on the small screen. His career began playing Anwar in the UK series Skins, and can now be seen starring alongside the likes of Jeff Daniels and Emily Mortimer in Aaron Sorkin's HBO series The Newsroom. He recently starred in the porn drama About Cherry.
Well all I got to say is interesting,
I know next to nothing about him so I can't comment on much haha
The on and off again couple had not been seen together in almost 5 months until recently, when the two were spotted enjoying a movie date night.
Today, a lucky fan got to meet both Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth, while also giving hope that the relationship is still going strong.
James Badge Dale plays the hero in The Lone Ranger. He’s Dan Reid, a Texas Ranger with scruffy facial hair and pained sky-blue eyes. He’s soft-spoken but quick with a one-liner, half jocky frat-boy and half wounded warrior. He makes fun of his little brother but clearly loves his little brother, and when he sets off on his third or fourth dangerous mission of the day, he says goodbye to his wife and child with a mixture of apology (because he’s a man who can’t help how much he likes his dangerous job) and tremendous care (because he’s a man who loves his family and knows that every time he sees them could be the last time). He’s a little bit John Wayne and a little bit Han Solo, a hero who’s also clearly a scoundrel, a fraternity president who’s also a noble lawman. He’s dead by around the half-hour mark.
There’s no place for obvious heroes in contemporary Hollywood blockbusters, is what Lone Ranger tries to say over and over again; Dan Reid needs to die so his nerdy younger brother can become him. (The fact that his nerdy younger brother is played by genetic superhuman Armie Hammer is one of several thousand indications that The Lone Ranger is too stupid for its ambitions.)
Fortunately, contemporary Hollywood blockbusters do have a place for James Badge Dale. The actor has popped up in three memorable supporting roles in this summer blockbuster season, all of them variations on a theme: The Dude Who Gets the Job Done. They’re all military dudes, or thereabouts. In World War Z, he played the modern version of Dan Reid: A drawling soldier who seems mildly amused by the zombie epidemic even as he’s bravely leading his men into the undead terror. In Iron Man 3, Dale played Eric Savin, a cocky enforcer for the movie’s Big Bad who steals all his scenes; he’s the first supervillain in a while who makes villainy look like a blast. I’ll just get the Mild Spoilers out of the way now: Dale dies in World War Z and in Iron Man 3 too. Dale has been dying a lot lately: In Flight, he played a cancer patient; in the incredibly misunderstood The Grey, he survived a plane crash just to die in the wreckage.
There’s something a little bit old-fashioned about Dale; he looks like the guy who was starring in movies before the nerds took over. It’s that chin, that jocky demeanor, the fact that his middle name is “Badge.” Dale has been around for a while now; he played a pivotal role in 1990′s Lord of the Flies. (He died.) He had a season on 24 where his character had two purposes: Play second banana to Jack Bauer (he was great) and have believable chemistry with pre-funny Elisha Cuthbert (an impossible task). He bounced around the background of TV screens for a while — he was on all three CSI shows — before his leading role in The Pacific suddenly reintroduced a whole new Badge Dale paradigm. As real-life soldier-turned-author Robert Leckie, Dale exuded confidence shading into vulnerability and melancholy; it was like watching the hero from a World War II movie suddenly realize he was trapped in a Vietnam movie.
The Pacific landed Dale a lead role in an AMC drama back when AMC could do no wrong. Unfortunately, that drama was Rubicon, a conspiracy thriller with a funny name that played like an episode of 24 on Quaaludes. (It rewarded people who stuck with it; nobody did.) But if TV didn’t work out for Dale, then this summer has shown him entering a new fascinating phase. He’s a character actor whose character would’ve been The Hero 30 or 40 years ago. He plays men who have a job to do, and do it, even if it’s dangerous. They don’t complain; they don’t have origin stories, or daddy issues; they aren’t Christ figures. His exit in World War Z is one of the most shocking deaths in any blockbuster movie this year because it’s so nonchalant. He plays a guy whose job is killing zombies. He gets bitten by a zombie; he does the math, puts a gun to his head, and that’s that.
In many ways, the 2013 model of James Badge Dale feels a little bit like the American counterpoint to Sean Bean. Like Dale, Bean specializes in playing two kinds of characters: old-fashioned heroes draped in nobility (see Game of Thrones or Troy) and grinning villains (see Goldeneye). Bean’s Boromir in The Fellowship of the Ring is a cousin to Leckie in The Pacific; they’re both a little bit too good for the bad war they find themselves in. Like Dale, Bean usually plays the guy who could almost be the main character: Boromir is mini-Aragorn, and John Reid is a proto-Lone Ranger. And like Dale, Bean dies onscreen. A lot. But there’s a sense of cheerful, All-American cynicism in Dale’s recent performances; his characters seem to know they’re going to die, and they tend to accept it without much fuss. He’s a cancer patient smoking a cigarette; he’s a soldier doing his job.
The Summer of Badge hasn’t led to any leading roles yet; he’s playing Lee Harvey Oswald’s brother in the JFK assassination flick Parkland (playing second fiddle to Zac Efron) and he’s in the ensemble of Joe Carnahan’s Stretch. Dale’s not too old and he’s got those blue eyes, but he seems unmistakably grown-up, and Hollywood doesn’t have much place for grown-up heroes right now. (Although Charlie Hunnam does an inadvertent Badge Dale imitation in Pacific Rim.) TV still seems like the best bet. You can see him in an FX drama like Justified. In an alternate universe, he could’ve been The Walking Dead‘s Rick Grimes, another old-fashioned cowboy in a confusing new world. But in a trio of gigantically budgeted movies that run the gamut from good to okay to terrible, Dale has emerged as the stealth MVP of the summer box office season. He’s the hero who dies so lamer heroes can live; he’s the only guy grinning through the end of the world.
