Casting Call: Bardem… New Bond Bad Guy? Plus, Wahlberg's Sports 'Game' & Streisand's Road Trip
Has Bond found its new baddie in Javier Bardem? With the end of “Entourage” near, Mark Wahlberg finds a new “Game” to play. Plus, who is the first star moving to the “Dallas” TNT reboot?
It’s all in the latest edition of the AccessHollywood.com Casting Call…
Javier Bardem is on a roll.
Earlier this month, the actor received a Best Actor Oscar nomination for his role in the Spanish film, “Biutiful.” Then, he and Penelope Cruz welcomed their first child together. Now, the actor has reportedly been offered a major part in the upcoming 23rd James Bond movie!
According to Deadline, while details of the role haven’t been revealed, it’s assumed the part would likely be the villain opposite Daniel Craig, who will return to reprise his role as super smooth super spy 007.
As previously reported earlier this month on AccessHollywood.com, the 23rd installment in the iconic film franchise was finally green lit after much speculation if it would ever see the light of day.
The as-of-yet untitled film, directed by Sam Mendes, is due to hit theaters on November 9, 2012.
Seth Rogen and Barbra Streisand’s family road trip is finally ready to roll.
The duo’s long-talked about comedy, “My Mother’s Curse,” has finally been given the green light by Paramount, per The Hollywood Reporter.
The film, which has been in the works for several years, focuses on an inventor (Rogen) who invites his mom (Streisand) on a cross-country road trip to hawk his newest gadget, all the while searching for his mom’s long lost love.
The project keeps Streisand’s comic turn going, following her work in back-to-back Focker films – 2004’s “Meet the Fockers” and 2010’s “Little Fockers,” respectively.
Funnyman Rogen currently stars as crime fighter Britt Reid in “The Green Hornet.”
With “Entourage” nearing the end of its run on HBO, Mark Wahlberg has come up with a new TV “Game” plan.
Wahlberg, who executive produces the long-running HBO series, has developed a new sitcom pilot called “Home Game,” based on the story of real-life former NFL star Mark Schlereth.
Schlereth won three Super Bowls during his time with the Washington Redskins and Denver Broncos during the 1990s, before retiring from the game to be home with his wife and daughters. Schlereth currently works as an NFL analyst for ESPN.
CBS has picked up the pilot, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, the upcoming eighth season of “Entourage” will be the show’s last. However, there has been discussion of bringing Vince (Adrien Grenier) and the boys to the big screen for an “Entourage” movie.
Wahlberg is also an executive producer of HBO’s recent Golden Globe and SAG Award Best Drama winning series “Boardwalk Empire.”
Jordana Brewster better dust off her 10-gallon hat and her cowboy boots – she’s moving to “Dallas.”
The brunette bombshell has been tapped as the first new cast member for the upcoming TNT reboot for the popular ‘80s soap series, according to Deadline.
The reboot will focus on the kids of feuding brothers J.R. and Bobby Ewing, who constantly clash over the Ewing family fortune.
Brewster will play Elena, the daughter of the Ewing family ranch’s cook, who finds herself in love triangle with J.R. and Bobby’s sons.
Original series stars Patrick Duffy and Linda Gray will reprise their roles as Bobby and Sue Ellen Ewing, while Larry Hagman has been in talks to come back as J.R., although no deal is yet in place for his return.
No airdate has been announced yet for the pilot’s premiere.
