Cinecast: Seth Green on Affleck’s Batman, ‘Pushing Daisies’ Musical, ‘SATC 3’?

Bette Midler+ Seth Green - whom you may recall from Robot Chicken, Family Guy, and Austin Powers - gives Larry King a compelling explanation as to why Ben Affleck is a poor choice as Batman in the upcoming Batman Vs. Superman film.

+ Bette Midler is set to appear at this Oscars this year - additionally, she'll be singing for the first time!

+ Pushing Daisies creator Bryan Fuller is in talks with Warner Bros. and Barry Sonnenfeld to adapt the short-lived (and much-loved!) ABC series into a musical for Broadway, which would star Pushing Daisies alum Kristin Chenoweth. Fuller says that he is also contemplating a film adaptation.

+ Michael Patrick King, who wrote for the Sex and the City series and directed both film adaptations, says that there's one more story to tell for Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda, and Samantha - greatly hinting at the possibility of a third film.

Channing Tatum Writing ‘Magic Mike’ Sequel

Channing TatumChanning Tatum has started work on Magic Mike 2.

The hunky actor announced he is working on the script for a sequel to his male stripper drama - loosely based on his own past - by posting a picture of him staring thoughtfully at a bust of his co-star from the original, Matthew McConaughey.

Referencing Matthew's character, he wrote underneath the picture. "What better way to start writing #MagicMike2 than with my old friend Dallas? #runatribe [sic]."

The first Magic Mike movie had a surprisingly dark plot, but Channing claims the sequel will be more light-hearted: "It will essentially be the movie that everyone thought the first one was going to be: crazy and fun and less slice-of-life and less drama. The first one, we had to make not so cheesy and campy; this one we are going to swing for the fences."

Channing, 33, is also considering directing as well as starring in the movie, which would make it his debut feature.

Brad Pitt Films Cameo for ‘21 Jump Street’ Sequel

Jonah Hill and Brad PittHow could the sequel to 21 Jump Street top its predecessor's Johnny Depp cameo? Simple: cast Brad Pitt!

The 12 Years a Slave producer and star is joining forces (for a little screen time, anyway) with his Moneyball co-star Jonah Hill in the upcoming sequel to the 2012 film adaptation of the 80's television series. Though Pitt is known for dramas and thrillers, funnyman Hill was able to coax the 50-year-old star into appearing in 22 Jump Street.

Pitt's cameo sees him as a lowly librarian when Hill and co-star Channing Tatum come across him as he puts on a poor acting performance. "The scene is very funny and the guys had a great time doing it. Brad was a great sport and the producers were thrilled that he took part," an insider said. While the proverbial beans seem to have been spilled with Pitt's cameo (unlike Depp's, which was suspected but never confirmed prior to release of the first film), the Oscar-nominated actor is sure to still deliver the laughs.

22 Jump Street hits theaters on June 13, 2014.

Channing Tatum to Take Acting Break in 2013

Channing TatumFirst Angelina - now Channing Tatum is looking to take a break from acting! Well, only for a year anyway.

The Magic Mike actor has revealed that he will be stepping away from the camera in order to get behind it. Tatum - who has starred in five films in 2012 alone with four more on the way - talked about his hopes to collaborate with his production partner Reid Carolin in the upcoming year:

"[Reid and I] have about three to four ideas that we love that are all in the hopper. By the end of next year, we're going to shut things down and write the first thing that we're going to direct. We're going to be like, alright, no more acting parts for a minute, let's take a few and really get caring about that section of our career."

The actor - who was named People's Sexiest Man Alive this year - definitely isn't disappearing from the acting world, as he's due to star in a sequel to Magic Mike and a biopic on daredevil Evel Knievel.

Channing Tatum: Ryan Gosling’s Kiss Was Better Than Mine

The Vow and The Notebook

Channing Tatum thinks that his kiss with Rachel McAdams in The Vow wasn't as good as hers with Ryan's Gosling in The Notebook.

The 32-year-old actor is up for the Best Kiss accolade at the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday, but isn't confident his smooch in the film is of the same caliber that his 31-year-old rival brought to the romantic scenes. 
Ryan and Rachel, 33, won in the same category in 2005 and recreated their lip lock on stage while accepting the award.

Jonah Hill Praises ‘Perfect’ Channing Tatum

21 Jump StreetJonah Hill thinks Channing Tatum was "perfect" for the role of Greg Jenko in 21 Jump Steet.

The 28-year-old actor - who co-wrote the script for new action comedy - explained the GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra star was the only person who would be "ballsy" enough to take on the part of the undercover police officer.

"We pictured it would be me and an action star. That was kind of the idea, we wanted someone who was known for action movies who was willing to play with that persona and be in a totally different kind of film. And Channing is the best person working in that field I think, and he was ballsy enough to take a leap of faith and do something different," he said.

Jonah admitted filming 21 Jump Street - which is based on the 80s TV show of the same name - often resulted in a number of impromptu scenes coming about as a consequence of the duo constantly "messing around" on set.

Bradley Cooper Quits The Crow Remake

Bradley Cooper in The HangoverAnd yet another delay, most likely prompting more haunted production gossip: Bradley Cooper has quit The Crow. The Hangover star was due to play the main character in the remake of the 1994 supernatural action movie, but has pulled out because of his busy schedule.

Cooper will start shooting David O. Russell's Silver Linings Playbook in the autumn and then immediately begins filming Paradise Lost - the same time The Crow is set to be made. Although a replacement for Cooper is yet to be decided, Channing Tatum and Mark Wahlberg are reportedly being considered, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

GI Joe Cast Cut to Three for Sequel

GI Joe sequel cast

Plans for the sequel to GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra are underway, and at least one cast member isn’t too happy about it. Rachel Nichols, who played Scarlett in the first film, just broke the news via Twitter: only three cast members from the first flick are returning.

She isn’t one of them (sorry, Rachel Nichols fans). Channing Tatum will reprise his role as Duke, Ray Park will come back as Snake Eyes and Lee Byung-hun is set to play Storm Shadow.

If Nichols is correct, Jon Chu is directing a sequel that will leave Scarlett, Ripcord (Marlon Wayans), Sergeant Stone (Brendan Fraser), General Hawk (Dennis Quaid) and Cobra Commander (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) completely out of the franchise.
