This Week's Casting Update

(Pic: MTV Movie Blog)

  • Tom Hardy is unveiled as Bane in The Dark Knight Rises website.  Suddenly, I'm worried for Christian Bale...and his back!
  • Armie Hammer, having great success post The Social Network, joins yet another movie.  This time he will be The Lone Ranger opposite Johnny Depp's Tonto.  Sensing the beginnings of a good career!
  • Somehow I can't imagine Michelle Williams as Glinda the Good Witch in the Oz: The Great and Powerful.  She joins James Franco who'll be Oz and Mila Kunis and Rachel Weisz as the evil witches of the West and East.  I've always pegged her as a dramatic, serious actress.  Even in Dawson's Creek, her character was extremely emo.  
  • Joel Edgerton (Kinky Boots) is Tom Buchanan in Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby replacing Ben Affleck who dropped out to do another film.  Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan are already part of the cast as Jay Gatsby and Daisy Buchanan.  I'm eager to see Luhrmann's next but his decision to film in it in 3D is giving me major doubts.  
  • The other Snow White film (which is how I refer to it), Snow White and the Huntsman, has found its Huntsman.  It's Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth.  The evil Queen in this version will be played by Charlize Theron and Prince Charming will be Sam Claflin (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides).  The movie has also moved up its release date to release before Tarsem Singh's Snow White film.  Ah, rivalry!
