Julianne Moore Possibly Joining Kingsman: The Secret Service Sequel — As The VILLAIN! Get The Scoop!

no title

This is so exciting!

Kingsman: The Secret Service was one of the most fun and action-packed flicks of last year which is why we're VERY excited for a sequel!

While we knew that director Matthew Vaughn and breakout star Taron Egerton would be returning for more — word is Colin Firth will not be reprising his role in any way (news which we do NOT like just as it is) — now we've got news about the new villain.

Samuel L. Jackson was the baddie in the first one and obviously has pretty big shoes to fill, but if reports are true, Julianne Moore could be signing on to be the evil-doer in the spy movie's sequel!

While we don't know much else about the flick — other than rumors that the film could be taking place in the States instead of London — we're definitely on board with the idea of Moore joining in the action!

And is it just us or are they making all the villains American as a joke on the idea that American villains are always Brits..?

Unfortunately, there is a possibility that the Oscar-winner won't be able to ink the deal as she's juggling several other projects at the moment, including Todd Haynes' adaptation of the children's book Wonderstruck.

Would you be interested in Julianne joining the cast??

Get the deets HERE!

The Fifty Shades Of Grey film franchise is about to introduce a crucial character!

Universal has officially locked down Kim Basinger for a part in the seXXXy sequel, Fifty Shades Darker! The blonde beauty is set to play Elena Lincoln, Christian Grey's business partner and ex-lover, in the movie adaptation of the popular E.L. James novel.

But what makes this character an important one?

Video: See The First Fifty Shades Darker Teaser!

Well, she's actually the one Anastasia Steele refers to as Mrs. Robinson, because she was the older woman who first seduced Christian when he was younger, AND introduced him to the world of S&M.

This casting choice seems pretty legit, since the 62-year-old is super smokin'!

Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan will also return to reprise their roles as the main characters, but director Sam Taylor-Johnson will not.

Instead, the filthy flick will be helmed by James Foley!

Alright, Perezcious readers, who's excited?? SOUND OFF in the comments!

Michael Jackson Told Oprah The Idea Of A White Actor Portraying Him Was 'Ridiculous' & 'Horrifying'! Watch The 1993 Interview Clip!

no title

After it was reported that Joseph Fiennes would be playing Michael Jackson in an upcoming British TV movie, many critics found the casting choice a perfect example of the entertainment industry's lack of minority representation!

The Shakespeare In Love actor claimed due to Jackson's skin pigmentation, casting a white guy to play the King of Pop in the 9/11 road trip comedy Elizabeth, Michael, and Marlon wasn't a big deal, explaining:

"He was probably closer to my color than his original color."

But the late music legend was always against the prospect of a white actor playing him on the screen, telling Oprah Winfrey back in 1993 that the idea was "ridiculous."

We can't even begin to imagine what this show will be like!

We already knew that Woody Allen had teamed up with Amazon to produce an original television series, but now the 80-year-old has picked his leading ladies!

Elaine May will also play a lead alongside the blonde beauty AND the acclaimed filmmaker, himself! And according to IMDB, this will be the 83-year-old actress' first major on-screen role since 2000!

Not much is known about the show, other than the fact that it is set in the 1960s and Woody wrote — and will direct — the half-hour installments.

The series will begin shooting in March, and we're certainly interested to see how it turns out, especially considering this is the first time he'll be working with the pop princess!
