Leo To Pay Homage To JFK

Filed under: Leonardo DiCaprio

leonardo-dicaprio-jfk-movie.jpg

Nothing but serious work for Jack Dawson Arnie Grape Leonardo DiCaprio.

Leo is set to star and producer a new film based on the assassination of President John F. Kennedy called Legacy of Secrecy. Though Leo won't be stepping into the iconic presidential role, he's slated to play play FBI informant Jack Van Laningham, the man that Mafia godfather Carlos Marcello supposedly confessed to about ordering the hit on JFK.

Good angle! There's been so many movies about the subject of JFK's murder, but focusing on Jack instead of John could be very interesting.

We're intrigued! Are U?

We're surprisingly impressed!

Check out the just-released promotional poster for the upcoming mini-series on The History Channel, The Kennedys (above), featuring Greg Kinnear as President John F. Kennedy and Katie Holmes as his wife, Jackie Kennedy Onassis!

We don't know if it's just some good photoshop and lighting trickery, but we think that they look remarkably like the real-life versions! Well done!

Let's hope that the actual series doesn't disappoint!

Thoughts??

Want A Piece Of JFK's Birthday Cake From 1962?

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TruePolitik

Delicious AND expensive!

Check out (above) this sugar Presidential Seal, which was featured on President John F. Kennedy's birthday in 1962 and is now up for auction!

According Lois Larkin, her husband, the late NYPD detective Patty Larkin, was working security detail the night of Kennedy's birthday party at Madison Square Garden - the very same one at which Marilyn Monroe sang "Happy Birthday" - and when he realized that the decoration was going to be thrown out, he took it home with him!

The piece is now up for auction on November 17th, at the Heritage Auctions in Dallas, and is estimated at being worth over $5,000!

Holy shiz! That is one vintage, patriotic dessert!

Hopefully it can continue to be preserved wherever it ends up!

Exciting Details On The Plot Of X-Men: First Class!

Filed under: Film Flickers

Oh man. This just keeps sounding better and better.

Now that the entire cast has pretty much been announced, more details about the plot of X-Men: First Class are emerging, and it sounds effing AWESOME!

We're hearing that the film takes place in 1960's reality where there is James Bond-esque 'retro-future technology,' with John F. Kennedy as President and Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X strongly featured in the backdrop.

The story will focus on Magneto and Professor X's friendship and its subsequent deterioration, and Xavier will neither be bald nor wheel-chair bound - although it will explain how that happens! We'll also get to see costumes that are inspired more from the old comics than the recent films!

Although a young Cyclops and Jean Grey will not appear, we've got it confirmed that Kevin Bacon will be portraying the villainous Sebastian Shaw, and January Jones WILL be The Hellfire Club's White Queen, Emma Frost!

Amazing!

It definitely sounds like these guys know what they're doing this time around!

We can't wait to see it! Exciting exciting!

Thoughts??

WTF?? Katie Holmes Is Playing WHO?!

Filed under: TV NewsKatie HolmesSad Sad

How HOriffic!

This is truly a travesty.

The weathered, lifeless shell of Katie Holmes has apparently come out her Scientology zombie daze for long enough to realize that she can't get movie work anymore, so she's going back to television to star as former First Lady Jacequeline Kennedy in the History Channel mini-series, The Kennedys!

Greg Kinnear will be portraying John F. Kennedy, while Barry Pepper will play brother Robert and Tom Wilkinson will be Joe, Sr.

We're actually in shock.

Way to massacre any chance at integrity, History Channel! Not to mention a pleasant viewing experience!
