Much of the massive cast of the 2003 holiday favorite romantic comedy Love Actually are about to reunite for a sequel to show fans of the movie what the characters are up to 14 years later in the year 2017.
The sequel won’t be a full movie, however, but a short created for the charity event Red Nose Day. It will even be called Red Nose Day Actually. Stars of the original expected to appear include Hugh Grant, Keira Knightley, Colin Firth, Liam Neeson, Bill Nighy, Andrew Lincoln, Martine McCutcheon, Rowan Atkinson, Lucia Moniz,Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Olivia Olson, and Marcus Brigstocke.
Going into Star Wars: The Force Awakens, I tried to forget all I knew about the highly anticipated film, including all the rumors of plots, characters, and cameos. So, it wasn’t until after I saw the movie in IMAX 3D that I took a look back at what rumors turned out to be true, as well as where those reported cameos and other roles showed up.
Here’s a look a some of the familiar faces, and some hidden ones as well, that showed up in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
And obviously, this will contain spoilers for the film.
Game Of Thrones is lobbing out the casting news recently. On the heels of the announcement that Ian McShane has joined the cast for season 6 (in an unnamed role), comes the announcement that legendary actor, Max Von Sydow will play the Three-Eyed Raven next season, replacing Struan Rodger, who made a brief appearance in the season 4 finale, as the seer who cannot help Bran walk again, but “he will fly.”
Fox has just unveiled our very first look at Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, the sequel to the successful adaptation of the first Maze Runner.
The film will center on Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) and the group of survivors who successfully navigated their way out of the Glade, where they discover that they have all just been a part of a devious program appropriately named WCKD. When they learn that there is only more trouble if they stay where they are at, they decide to break out to see if there are answers in the Scorch, the outside world that has been obliterated by a massive solar flare. You can read a synopsis and check out the trailer below.
Many new faces will be joining the cast of HBO’s hit series, Game of Thrones, for its third season (which makes me quite nervous for the well-being of the familiar faces of the show), including Diana Rigg (The Avengers , The Great Muppet Caper), as Olenna Tyrell, the Queen of Thorns, Mackenzie Crook (Pirates of the Caribbean, The Office) as Orell, and Thomas Brodie-Sangster (Love Actually, Nanny McPhee) as Jojen Reed.
During the panel for Game of Thrones at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, a video was shown to introduce the 14 new actors joining the cast, as well as who from George R.R. Martin‘s books they’ll be playing.
