- Twilight vamp Edi Gathegi has been tapped to play Darwin in X-Men: First Class. A character who possess the ability to “adapt to any situation or environment,” Darwin can, for example, grow gills underwater. Which, of course, now means Kanye finally has a friend! [Deadline]
- Steve Coogan is the latest to join My Idiot Brother. The actor will play a “self-righteous documentary filmmaker” in the film, which stars Paul Rudd. [Deadline]
- Cillian Murphy will star in The Retreat, which follows a couple whose vacation is interrupted when they discover an airborne virus has wiped out most of the mainland’s population. I’ll predict the film’s big twist: mainland = Jersey Shore house. [Deadline]
- NBC announced in a press release that William Baldwin will join Parenthood for a multi-episode arc. The actor will play Gordon Flint, a “dedicated bachelor” who forces employee Adam (Peter Krause) to execute grunt work, and develops a crush on Sarah (Lauren Graham). Sarah likely becomes briefly excited when she confuses Gordon for his older, more successful brother Alec Flint, but is ultimately happy it’s not Stevie B. Flint.
Professor X. Then Magneto. Then Emma Frost. Then Beast, Banshee, and Havok. It seems like every time I turn around, a new mutant has been cast, and much like Deadpool at the end of X-Men Origins: Wolverine, my head is spinning (Though, still attached). For now, I’m just trying to ignore all the casting rumors. I don’t know who is going to end up in the final movie. I don’t know if Fox is trying to mislead the media and keep their superhero lineup under wraps. All I know is that there are a few X-Men I’m dying to see on the big screen, and I haven’t heard anything about them yet!The casting decisions surrounding Fox’s forthcoming blockbuster X-Men: First Class have been coming at us faster than a speeding bullet. (Yes, that is a DC Comics reference. Deal with it.) First there was
DISCLAIMER: The X-Men universe is pretty flexible. READ FULL STORY
So far, every piece of news has left me dizzy with anticipation. I’m stoked to see James McAvoy play a young Professor X, I know Michael Fassbender will be great as young Magneto, and I like everything that the movie’s four credited screenwriters have worked on. Now, we’ve got some more advance news to add to the pile. According to The Hollywood Reporter‘s Heat Vision Blog, She’s Out Of Your League‘s Alice Eve is currently negotiating to star as the White Queen, the blonde British bombshell with a penchant for instigating telepathic melodrama.

In the grand tradition of shirtless warriors — see: Brad Pitt (Troy) and Hugh Jackman (Wolverine) — today we add a new hunk to that list: Jason Momoa as Conan the Barbarian 2.0. The founding father of muscle, Governor Schwarzenegger, originated the role in the 1982 film, about a child sold into slavery who must avenge the massacre of his tribe.
This is the first still the studio has released for the film (due out next year), and judging by the long hair, biceps, and steel-cold face, I think Momoa fits the part quite nicely. For those of you less focused on his pecs, what do you think of this first image? Does it fit the bill for you?

- Hipster hero Joseph Gordon-Levitt ((500) Days of Summer) is in final negotiations to star in action flick Premium Rush, and may star in the thriller Looper. My guess is that Gordon-Levitt will have a tough time getting away from the bad guys though, because it’s really difficult to run in skinny jeans. [THR]
- Nerdgasm alert: Stan Lee is teaming with the History channel for Stan Lee’s Superhumans, a show that follows the comic book icon as he discovers people whose genetics give them remarkable abilities. That sound you just heard was Sheldon exploding. [THR]
- Sam Rockwell will play a bar owner in search of aliens in Jon Favreau’s adaptation of Cowboys and Aliens. Well, that’s a step up from expendable crewman No. 6, right? [THR]
- Can you handle the truth? This one’s pretty easy to take in: Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz will present at the MTV movie awards to promote their summer flick Knight and Day. [People]
- Motion Picture Corporation of America has acquired rights to a 2004 Vanity Fair article co-written by Hunter S. Thompson. The article focused on a miscarriage of justice, when Lisl Auman was charged with murder and handed a life sentence for a crime she clearly was not present to commit. Johnny Depp, Jack Nicholson, Benicio Del Toro, and Woody Harrelson helped overturn her sentence in 2005. Are they the new League of Extraordinary Gentlemen? [THR]
- Spike TV is in the midst of developing comedy projects with John Schneider, Danny Masterson, and Denis Leary, who is acting as producer on Rebel League, a show about a team of misfit hockey players. Since the foul-mouthed Leary’s behind it, it really should be called The Mighty F—ks, right?[THR]
- Speaking of: Alex Holdridge (In Search of a Midnight Kiss) is in talks with Fox Searchlight to direct a rom-com called The F-Word. Mmm…fudge… [L.A. Times]
