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


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


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!

Family Feud Answer Gone Terribly HIGHlarious!

Filed under: TV NewsHIGHlarious

What's in a name?

Seriously, that's what Shakespeare Steve Harvey was asking, when he had the Fisher family try to come up with a boy's name beginning with the letter H.

Hmm, you'd think having a host that has a phone book listing of Harvey, Steve might provide a clue!

Ch-ch-check out the Fisher family's response (ABOVE)!

Orlando Bloom and Condola Rashad Are Tragically HOT In Romeo And Juliet FIRST LOOK!

romeo and juliet

Can anyone say star-crossed seXXXy?!

Orlando Bloom and Condola Rashad are heating up Broadway with their revival of the Shakespearian standard, Romeo and Juliet!

The Lord of the Rings star and two-time Tony nominated actress are serving us with an interracial take on the classic tale for the first Broadway production in 36 years!

And the pic (above) is a seductive preview for what's to come!

Oh la LOVE!

Rashad reveals:

“We’re using all the classical text, but it’s not necessarily in a classical setting. The setting is still kind of being talked about, but it is contemporary. Not jeans-and-shorts contemporary, but more of an extraction.”

We can't wait to see this ishh modernized for the stage!

Romeo and Juliet begins previews at the Richard Rodgers Theatre on August 24!

Best Shakespeare Inspired Flicks!

Nobody tells a story quite like Billy Shakespeare!

The world's greatest playwright has had his works adapted into movies HUNDREDS of times, including this summer's much anticipated flick Much Ado About Nothing, directed by Joss Whedon.

The early reviews are that this movie might be the GREATEST modern day treatment Shakespeare has ever gotten.

Did you know THESE old favorites were inspired by Shakespeare too???
