Something Is NOT Rotten In The State Of Denmark Now That Benedict Cumberbatch Is Set To Play Hamlet In 2015!!

benedict cumberbatch as hamlet next year

To be or not to be, that is the question!

And the answer is to be, clearly, since Benedict Cumberbatch is now confirmed as Hamlet, Prince of Denmark in an upcoming production of the famed William Shakespeare play in London!

From one iconic literary character to another!

Benedict is set to take the stage of the Barbican Theatre in London starting August 2015 and will play the Hamlet until October.

Book your tickets now, Cumberb*tches!!

We just hope he'll have time to film Sherlock either during his stage run or long before!

Otherwise the fans will NOT be happy!!

A Contemporary Romeo & Juliet Musical TV Series Is Apparently In The Works For FOX & With It Would Come A Stage Version Too?!

Filed under: TV NewsGlee

romeo and juliet contemporary musical tv series coming

Oh no, this does not sound good.

Apparently a contemporary version of Romeo & Juliet is possibly coming to FOX as a TV series in the near future.

AND the worst best part is that it will be a musical show as well.

Wait, what?!?

The series will, basically, be something like if Glee were to meet William Shakespeare and they had some strange, music singing, rebellious, 21st century love-child.

Yeah, doesn't sound too appealing to us either.

Kanye West's Rants Are Back & This Time They've Got So Many F-Bombs He Might've Beaten Wolf Of Wall Street's Record!

kanye west goes on another rant

Oh no, looks like someone's grown bored of wedding planning with Kim Kardashian!

Kanye West is on that rant-train again and this one includes as many F-words as The Wolf Of Wall Street

If not more.

Good ol' Yeezus was at his Penn State University tour stop when he decided to compare himself to the likes of William Shakespeare & Ludwig van Beethoven.

Oh AND he completely went off radio DJs and anyone who disses him, specifically Sway & Charlamagne Tha God!

He said:

"If I go to a radio interview, SHUT THE F*CK UP!!! Diss me, talk shit. What the f*ck did you do? What have you done with your motherf*ckin' life, Charlamagne? Sway?"

Shots were DEFINITELY fired.

Ch-ch-check out the whole, rambling, f-bomb ridden rant…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Michael Fassbender Swings His Long Sword In Other Dude's Faces On The Set Of Macbeth! Uh, We Mean That Scottish Play!

macbethfassbender

Oh, we'd come clutch his dagger all night long!

Michael Fassbender was seen hovering through the fog and not-so-filthy air in Farnham, United Kingdom practicing his fight moves for Macbeth!

Michael plays the title role in this Shakespearean tragedy, which is being produced by the same company that made The King's Speech.

Macbeth is kind of like The King's Speech, because both future monarchs are afraid to rule. One takes speech therapy, the other brutally murders a lot of people. Other than that, pretty much the same story!

To paraphrase Lady Macbeth, Michael totally looked like the innocent flower in this makeshift battle, but he's totally being the serpent under it…and since he's Michael Fassbender, it's probably a rather large serpent!

According to the film's website, the flick will have a "modern themed take on a timeless story." Macbeth potentially set in 2014? Aw yeah!

Word of advice, Michael…lay off Macduff! Trust us…do NOT piss that guy off.

Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow will creep in this petty pace from day to day until this movie will finally come out! We're so excited!

Troy Co-Stars Orlando Bloom And Diane Kruger Reunited On Broadway

orlando bloom diane kruger reunited

Reunited and it feels so good!

Movie star turned broadway hunk Orlando Bloom's wife Miranda Kerr wasn't the only one to support the multitalented actor!

Orly's former Troy co-star Diane Kruger reunited with him on Broadway during his opening week!

As much as we WISH the two were reunited on stage, they were actually seen chatting backstage.

Bummer! How awesome of a performance would that be?!

The Bridge star stopped by the new broadway star's performance of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet to congratulate him on his success!

Who would’ve known Legolas would be bringing his acting talent on stage in front of a live audience?

Penn Badgley FINALLY emerged this week from wherever good-looking people go when we don’t see them for a while to make movie in New York with Ethan Hawke!

We’re soooooo happy to see Dan Humphrey back in action, even if it's in Brooklyn and not on the Upper East Side! LOLz!!!

Penn plays an orphan named Posthumus in Cymbeline, an adaptation of William Shakespeare’s play of the same title. Ethan plays Cymbeline, Posthumus’s father-in-law.

TOTES excited to see Penn take on such a challenging role!

Ch-ch-check out more photos of the Gossip Girl alum (below)!

Milla Jovovich Goes From Resident Evil To Resident Thespian By Joining Cast of Cymbeline!

Filed under: Film FlickersMilla Jovovich

milla

We can't remember if there are more Resident Evil films or Shakespearean plays, but now we don't have to, since Milla Jovovich has switched from one franchise to the other!

One Milla in her time plays many parts, forsooth!

Milla was just cast as Cymbeline's evil Queen of Hearts who tries to position her weak son on the throne at the expense of the King's daughter. Sounds like a good ole trip to Dr. Phil might solve that problem!

Plot! Intrigue! I-am-bic-pen-ta-me-ter! What's not to like?

This filmed Shakespearean adaptation is sure to be AH-Mazing as it has a too, too solid cast to disappoint! With co-stars like Ethan Hawke and Ed Harris, how can it fail? That is the question!
