No Liz For Megan

We're not sure how this one even got started, even though Megan Fox does kinda look like a young Liz Taylor!

Either way, Megan has just spoken up and denied that she's in talks for the role:

Fox is pushing the Academy of Motion Pictures and Sciences for an Best Supporting Actor Oscar nod for Andy Serkis and his role in Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

But Serkis's face never on screen.

Fox CEO Tom Rothman is asking the Academy to consider Serkis who he feels was snubbed for his work on the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Serkis is famous for his motion capture roles.

Having played Gollum in LOTR, Serkis played Caesar, the main chimp in the Apes flick.

Rothman said the following about Serkis's push:

More Apes! Check Out The Full Trailer For Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes

We showed you the trailer for Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes a couple months ago, but now a newer, more action-packed trailer has been released. And this time, we get a closer look at Caesar, the ape.

The story centers around James Franco's character who is testing a potential Alzheimer's cure on Caesar. When the ape gets a hold of the drug and releases it to his fellow apes, an uprising begins.

The CGI effects are out of control in this movie. Andy Serkis is the man behind Caesar. Freida Pinto, John Lithgow, and Tom Felton (yes, Draco Malfoy!!!) also star in the movie!

It looks pretty amazing! We can't wait to see the final cut in August.

Wow! This must be such a cool opportunity for him!

Andy Serkis will not only be reprising his role in The Lord of the Rings trilogy as Gollum in the upcoming Peter Jackson-directed prequel, The Hobbit, but this time around, he'll also be the second unit director on the fantasy epic!

He revealed:

"There is really a sense of [director] Peter [Jackson] wanting people around him who totally understand the material and the work ethic. I will be very much on the live-action sets and locations helping Peter to tell the story."

Wow! Talk about a trusting relationship!

We're sure must be thrilled to take on this exciting new role!

Best of luck, Presh!

Gollum Returns For The Hobbit!

Filed under: Film Flickers

Casting's coming along nicely, we think.

Sources are reporting that Andy Serkis has closed his deal to reprise his role as Gollum in The Hobbit.

So far, he's joining pretty much the entire original cast, including Cate Blanchett and Elijah Wood.

Still waiting on a done deal from Ian McKellen's corner though.

C'mon, precious! Ink that up!
