Seth Rogen to Play Walter Cronkite in David Gordon Green’s ‘Newsflash‘
Seth Rogen, who stays about half as busy as The Rock (which is still, like, 20 times busier than you’ll ever be), is stepping behind the news desk for his next gig. In what could be a surprising dramatic turn for Rogen the actor, he’s signed on to play the late Walter Cronkite for director David Gordon Green’s Newsflash — which chronicles the evening news host’s coverage of the assassination of President John F.

By now you’re all familiar with Aquaman, the walking collection of action figure one-liners and whiskey swigs played by Jason Momoa in the DCEU. Thanks to Justice League, we know what Aquaman looks and sounds like — it might not even be crazy to suggest that we kind of know what he smells like, too. Salt water, whiskey, and leather, right? So while the latest image of Aquaman isn’t exactly a first look, it is most definitely our first look at Jason “MY MAN!” Momoa in his superhero’s solo movie.

Bryan Singer Fired From ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’; Director Claims He Left to Care for Sick Parent
News broke late last Friday evening that Fox had halted production on Bohemian Rhapsody, curiously citing the “unexpected unavailability” of Bryan Singer. Although a representative for the director released a statement citing a “personal health matter,” many suspected that Singer’s absence and subsequent production interruption signaled the director’s imminent exit — whether by choice or by force.

Adam Driver Just Dropped a Hint About Rey’s Heritage in ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’
Rey’s heritage remains one of the biggest mysteries of the new Star Wars trilogy. Director Rian Johnson has previously confirmed that the identity of Rey’s parents will be revealed when The Last Jedi hits theaters this December, but the cast and crew are keeping particularly tight-lipped because, as Johnson has said, there’s another element of secrecy tied into that plot point.
