When Usher compares boxing to dancing in his interview with Men's Health, we totally understand where he's coming from!

Both of them, in the hands of masters, look like an incredible art form — it just so happens one of them is also extremely violent too!

Usher is playing Sugar Ray Leonard in an upcoming biopic, and has been hard at work training! The thing that struck him the most, though (other than fists), was how similar boxing is to something so dear to him.

Here's what he said:

Daniel Radcliffe Set To Replace Sacha Baron Cohen In Freddie Mercury Biopic?!

Could Harry Potter be playing the coveted role of gay rocker legend Freddie Mercury?!

Harry Potter could be playing THE iconically flamboyant Queen rocker on film???

GTFO!

Daniel Radcliffe is the latest name to come out of the casting rumor mill for the Freddie Mercury biopic, allegedly putting producers under his wizardly spell!

While we have no official confirmation he's set to star, a source close to the project revealed:

“Daniel has been told the part is his if he wants it. Despite his youth, Daniel impressed movie bosses with his portrayal of gay poet Allen Ginsburg in this year’s movie Kill Your Darlings. Plus, he’s closer in height to Freddie than Sacha, who’s much taller. Daniel can really sing, too.”

Borat actor, Sacha Baron Cohen, quit the movie this summer following script conflicts with the living members of the band…

But now, producers really like the idea of Danny playing the part, and are prepared to offer him big money to make it happen!

Would you just die to see HP singing rock classics like Bohemian Rhapsody and We Are The Champions?!

We need to make this rumor a reality ASAP!

Matt Bomer Cast As Montgomery Clift In Biopic!

Matt Bomer fans may want the seksi star won't be in 50 Shades Of Grey, but it looks like they're going to have to settle for black and white.

The Magic Mike star will be fulfilling a personal dream to portray actor Montgomery Clift! He told GQ Italia last year:

"I would love to do a Montgomery Clift biopic. I would love to just keep working with really great directors who really inspire me."

And now it's coming true! Matt has been cast in the title role of Monty Clift, the story of the affair between Montgomery and his A Place In The Sun costar Elizabeth Taylor!

After Lindsay Lohan and Helena Bonham Carter, who will be playing his Liz? We can't wait to find out!

But she better be good- because Matt is the spitting image of the iconic Montgomery!

Ch-ch-check out the pics (below) of both actors in their prime.

Gabby Douglas Biopic Heading To TV!

Filed under: TV NewsFilm FlickersZportzInspirationOlympicsGymnastics

You might have watched the real positive side of things happen live during the Olympics, but what you DIDN'T see is why we're getting a tv biopic of young gymnast Gabby Douglas!

Lifetime has just greenlighted The Gabby Douglas Story, which will be an original movie starring Imani Hakim and Sydney Mikayla as the two-time Olympic gold medalist! Gabby also has a role, but we're not sure how she fits in, when the other two ladies are playing Gabby during her childhood/teen years respectively!

Gabby started gymnastics at 6 years old, and has been called a real-life prodigy — she's also had to battle bullying and racism. She also had to leave her mother, three siblings and grandmother in Virginia Beach at age 14 and move to Des Moines, Iowa, to train. Obvs it was the right choice!

If you've ever wanted an interesting true story to be a movie — look no further!

Oh, and if you've ever wanted to know about her life AFTER the olympics… CLICK HERE!

Princess Diana Biopic Gets Royally Panned In Early Reviews By British Critics!

naomi watts1

While we all remember Princess Diana so fondly, early reviews of Diana may prove that her biopic will not receive so royal a treatment.

The reviews are in from across the pond and Britain's critics seem to be, by-and-large, extremely unimpressed with the flick and Naomi Watts' performance.

Peter Bradshaw of The Guardian gave the film just one out of five stars, and made it to be some rubbish:

Naomi Watts Nearly Said No To Diana Because She Worried What Princes William & Harry Might Think!

naomi watts ivan nikolov wenn20559131

The British are so POLITE! LOLz!!

Naomi Watts seems to US like the obvious choice to play Princess Diana in the new biopic about the royal, with her blond hair, blue eyes, and lovely British lilt.

But the actress turned down the role TWICE before saying yes, not because she didn’t think she could do it — come on, we’re talking about an Oscar nominee here, y’all! — but because she worried what Diana’s sons, Princes Harry and William, might think!

Naomi said recently:
