Idris Won't Be Bond - If you’ve been hoping beyond hope that Idris Elba would become the first Black James Bond, we've got bad news for you: he’s basically taken himself out of the running. An MGM insider said that Idris won’t have time to play 007 because of his shooting schedule for the BBC show, “Luther.” Apparently the studio would have a hard time working around it. “It is sad news for those fans who felt he was the prime man to be the first ever Black Bond,” the insider noted, adding, “By taking [“Luther”], Idris has essentially turned down Double-O-Seven.” Other actors up for the role – providing that Daniel Craig doesn’t return – include Tom Hardy, Aidan Turner, Michael Fassbender, and Tom Hiddleston. The 25th installment of the spy franchise is scheduled to hit theaters next fall.
It's official, "Deadpool 2" is underway. Star Ryan Reynolds took to Instagram to announce filming has started.

Playing J.D. in "Thelma & Louise" was Brad Pitt's breakout role and now we're finding out he almost didn't get it. Instead, it was Robert Downey Jr. who was close to landing the part. Why didn't he get it, especially considering he was already a star when the movie came out in 1991? According to the new book "Off the Cliff: How the Making of Thelma and Louise Drove Hollywood to the Edge," director Ridley Scott was worried RDJ would look too short next to star Geena Davis. Brad eventually came in to read for the role last second and had chemistry with Geena. The actress recommended he get it and the rest is history. "Off the Cliff" is in stores now.
"Better Call Saul" is coming back for a fourth season. Season three of the "Breaking Bad" prequel wrapped up this month and fans will have to wait until next year for the new batch of 10-epsiodes.

As you can imagine, Ed’s set featured many of his hits including “Shape of You,” “The A-Team,” “Photograph,” and “Thinking Out Loud” and even included covers of Stevie Wonder's “Superstition” and Bill Wither's “Ain't No Sunshine When She's Gone.” "The aim of tonight is to lose our voices," Ed told the crowd, asking them to sing along to his songs.

On top of that, he’s also accused of dissuading her from taking anti-retroviral drugs. While neither Sheen or the girl are actually named in the suit – which was filed last week in Los Angeles County Superior Court – it’s not hard to figure out who’s who. He’s described as a “confidential male defendant” who found out he was HIV positive in 2011, and gave a national TV interview about his HIV status on November 17th, 2015 and June 21st, 2016. Sheen was on “Today” on both dates. Meanwhile, “Jane Doe” describes herself as a “Russian émigré.” The reason he’s not specifically named is that she signed a non-disclosure agreement.

Depp's response? “I apologize for the bad joke I attempted…in poor taste about President Trump," he offered. "It did not come out as intended, and I intended no malice. I was only trying to amuse, not harm anyone.”
