Zach Galifianakis is making a movie version of his popular talk show Between Two Ferns.

The comedy star kicked off the Funny or Die online video series by interviewing actor Michael Cera in 2008, before going on to have celebrity guests such as Natalie Portman, Steve Carell, Bruce Willis, Jon Hamm, Charlize Theron, Ben Stiller, and Justin Bieber.

Now, it seems Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis is to get the big screen treatment, with editors at The Hollywood Reporter reporting that production is already underway on a film version of the programme, having been greenlit by executives at Netflix.

Scott Aukerman, who has directed a number of episodes of the low-budget talk show, will helm the movie. However, it is not yet known whether the feature will follow the same format as the original, in which Galifianakis chats with stars while sitting between two potted ferns.

He often trades barbs and insults with his A-list guests for the duration of the interview, and in keeping with the amateur aesthetic of the show, on-screen graphics often contain deliberate comedic errors.

Apart from Galifianakis, no other casting details have been shared. However, The Hollywood Reporter’s article indicated that the likes of Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage, TV host David Letterman, and actor Keanu Reeves may appear. In addition, the 49-year-old’s co-stars from The Hangover franchise, such as Ed Helms and Bradley Cooper, are likely to be involved.

Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis has aired sporadically on Funny or Die in recent years, with some of the most popular episodes involving former U.S. President Barack Obama and Brad Pitt. The 2016 episode with then-presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, the first new show in two years, received 30 million views in its first 24 hours, and became one of the top videos in the website’s history. The last Between Two Ferns show, which starred Jerry Seinfeld, Wayne Knight, and Cardi B, aired in June (18).

Emilia Clarke has debuted a new haircut inspired by styles once sported by Gwyneth Paltrow and Brad Pitt.

The Game of Thrones actress often experiments with hairstyles, having previously rocked long brunette locks and platinum blonde strands.

Now, Emilia has gone for the chop once again and taken inspiration from a surprising source – the matching blonde crops Gwyneth and Brad wore while they were a serious couple in the mid-’90s.

“Me: I’m thinking when Gwyneth and Brad had the same haircut. @jennychohair: I got ‘chu,” she captioned a snap of her new look on her Instagram page on Thursday (27Sep18), adding the hashtags: “#nowijustneedanextra2feetoflegs”and “#slidingdoors4lyfe.”

In her post, Emilia credited her hair transformation to Jenny Cho, a celebrity hairstylist who has also worked with the likes of Amanda Seyfried, Evangeline Lilly and Jennifer Garner.

And the star indicated that she was very pleased with the “low maintenance” style.

“@jennychohair I would follow you into any battle anytime anywhere you my GURL! ️#fortheloveofthelowmaintenance,” the 31-year-old commented.

Meanwhile, Jenny posted a video illustrating how she cut Emilia’s tresses and explained that she enjoys working with the British star because she can pull off just about any colour or style.

“Emilia has been a sultry brunette to the recent platinum goddess and everything in between. She’s one of the few lucky ones who has a huge colour range. I know, I know, some of you guys are sad to see the Platinum go. It’s stunning but not always kind on the hair. @emilia_clarke You’re a dream,” she added.

Damon Herriman has been cast as Charles Manson in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

The upcoming crime mystery is set to tell the story of a TV actor and his longtime stunt double as they try to find success in the Los Angeles film industry in 1969, with the actor happening to live next door to Sharon Tate, who is later tragically murdered by the followers of cult leader Manson.

While the shoot is already underway, editors at The Wrap have now confirmed that Herriman is to play Manson in the film, joining already established castmembers such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie and Al Pacino.

The Australian actor is best known for his role as Dewey Crowe in FX’s Justified, and has also had minor roles in Breaking Bad and Top of the Lake: China Girl, as well as parts in The Lone Ranger and The Water Diviner.

Empire star Rumer Willis has also been cast as British actress Joanna Pettet, a friend of Tate who had lunch at her house just hours before her murder, while Dreama Walker will portray actress and singer Connie Stevens.

Costa Ronin, Victoria Pedretti, Margaret Qualley and Madisen Beaty have landed parts too.

In addition to directing, Tarantino has written the screenplay and will produce the feature in collaboration with Gravity’s David Heyman and Shannon McIntosh, who previously worked with the 55-year-old on his movies Django Unchained and The Hateful Eight.

The film was originally scheduled for release on 9 August 2019 to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the murders, but is now expected to debut on 26 July.

Lena Dunham was also recently added to the ensemble cast, as well as Kill Bill star Uma Thurman’s daughter, Maya Hawke, and Inglourious Basterds actor Eli Roth’s estranged wife, Lorenza Izzo.

Angelina Jolie isn’t afraid of ageing.

Over the years, the actress has frequently been cited as one of the world’s most beautiful women, receiving particular attention for her full lips and vast tattoo collection.

Having now been in the public eye for decades, Angelina feels no less beautiful than she did in her younger years, and has encouraged others to ignore the notion that “femininity fades after 40”.

“It is just simply not true,” the 43-year-old insisted in an interview with Vogue Australia. “Wisdom, understanding, clarity of thought – all the things that come with age – are also beautiful and feminine qualities. I’d like to think we all get better with age, men and women.

“There is nothing more attractive than someone being fully themselves, without inhibition, in whatever form that takes.”

Angelina, who is mother to six children, adopting three internationally, with ex-husband Brad Pitt, has served as the face of Guerlain’s Mon Guerlain fragrance since 2017, and went on to become the first Hollywood actress to ever co-create a fragrance when the brand released an eau de toilette version of the scent.

She has also involved her 14-year-old son Pax in the project, inviting him to one of Guerlain’s bespoke perfume ateliers with in-house perfumer Thierry Wasser.

“Pax and I each made a perfume. We laughed that his was so much better,” she smiled, before emphasising the reason she agreed to collaborate with the French house.

“For nearly 200 years they’ve been making perfumes that celebrate femininity in all its forms. But I’d never endorsed a perfume before, and would not have unless I was sure of the values and ethos of the company.”

A jacket worn by Harrison Ford as Han Solo in Star Wars is estimated to sell for over $1 million (£762,000) at an upcoming auction.

The navy jacket featuring four front pockets that Ford donned in 1980 cinema classic The Empire Strikes Back is part of 600 lots being sold off by Prop Store during a live auction on 20 September (18) at London’s BFI IMAX cinema.

The fedora hat worn by Ford’s other famous alter ego, Indiana Jones, in Raiders of the Lost Ark is also going under the hammer, with experts estimating it will fetch up to $397,000 (£300,000), while adventurer Indy’s bullwhip from The Temple of Doom is poised to fetch up to $92,000 (£70,000).

There will also be lots of other Star Wars props on offer for fans of the sci-fi franchise, including a Stormtrooper helmet from the first Star Wars film as well as a similar helmet from 2017’s The Last Jedi.

And judging by a recent auction held in Las Vegas, appetite for original Star Wars props is high, with a blaster used by Han Solo in Return of the Jedi fetching $550,000 (£419,000).

Among the other lots at the upcoming Prop Store sale is the costume worn by Johnny Depp in the 1990 film Edward Scissorhands, the robe worn by Brad Pitt as Tyler Durden in Fight Club, the Jumanji game board from the 1995 film, Marty McFly’s (Michael J. Fox) hoverboard from Back to the Future Part II, Forrest Gump’s (Tom Hanks) Bubba Gump Shrimp hat and a Wonka Bar from Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory.

And for movie fans whose pockets aren’t that deep, all items will be on display for the public to view from 6 September.

“Our auction on September 20 2018 will once again raise the bar, presenting some of the most iconic cinematic artefacts of our time,” Stephen Lane, chief executive of Prop Store, said in a statement.

Leonardo DiCaprio has amped up the buzz about his new star-studded Quentin Tarantino film by posting a shot of him in character with castmate Brad Pitt on Instagram.

DiCaprio plays washed-up western star Rick Dalton in Sony Pictures’ Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, opposite Pitt, who portrays his longtime stunt double, Cliff Booth.

In the first-look picture, Leo looks like a 1960s cool dude, wearing cowboy boots, brown trousers, a mustard turtle neck and leather jacket, while Brad resembles vintage Robert Redford/Steve McQueen sporting an all-denim look with a black T-shirt and shades.

DiCaprio was the first actor to commit to the film, which will also feature Margot Robbie as tragic Manson Family murder victim Sharon Tate, Timothy Olyphant, Luke Perry, Burt Reynolds, Al Pacino, and Tarantino regulars Tim Roth and Michael Madsen. Dakota Fanning is part of the ensemble too, with the actress signing on to portray Lynette ‘Squeaky’ Fromme, the Manson Family devotee who tried to assassinate U.S. President Gerald Ford in 1975. Brit Damian Lewis has been cast as movie icon Steve McQueen, and Emile Hirsch is playing the role of Jay Sebring, the hairstylist who was another victim of what became known as the Tate murders.

Tarantino has described the film as “a story that takes place in Los Angeles in 1969, at the height of hippy Hollywood”.

In the movie, DiCaprio’s character lives next door to Tate, who was slaughtered by cult leader Charles Manson’s followers while pregnant with filmmaker Roman Polanski’s child in 1969.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is slated for release in August, 2019.

Al Pacino has been added to the all-star cast of Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming movie Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

The Pulp Fiction director is quickly pulling together an ensemble cast for his new project, which will follow the story of TV star Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt), who are trying to make names for themselves in the film industry at the time of the Charles Manson murders in Los Angeles in 1969.

On Thursday (07Jun18), Variety reported that Pacino is joining the film too and is set to take on the role of Dalton’s agent, Marvin Shwarz. No other details about his character have been announced but the film will mark the first time he has worked with Tarantino.

The Hollywood veteran, known for his performances in The Godfather and Scent of a Woman, recently wrapped production on Martin Scorsese’s mob drama The Irishman, which also stars Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci.

Pacino’s casting news comes shortly after a string of high-profile names were attached to star in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. Also joining the cast is Margot Robbie as murdered actress Sharon Tate, Burt Reynolds as ranch owner George Spahn, Damian Lewis as iconic actor Steve McQueen and Dakota Fanning in the part of Lynette ‘Squeaky’ Fromme, the Manson Family devotee who tried to assassinate U.S. President Gerald Ford in 1975.

Emile Hirsch has been cast as Jay Sebring, the hairstylist who was another victim of what became known as the Tate murders, and Luke Perry is set to portray Scott Lancer.

Nicholas Hammond has been cast as director Sam Wanamaker and Tarantino regulars Michael Madsen, Tim Roth and Keith Jefferson have landed supporting roles, while Timothy Olyphant and Kurt Russell are also set to appear.

Scott Eastwood fed up with ‘pretty boy’ label

Scott Eastwood is doing a ‘Brad Pitt’ by growing his hair out in the hope that he’ll stop being cast as a pretty boy

The 32-year-old, who is the son of movie legend Clint Eastwood, has been carving out his own Hollywood career over the past 12 years, with roles in films like The Fate of the Furious, Suicide Squad and brand-new action flick Pacific Rim: Uprising.

But the actor is now looking to take on some more serious roles, like his Fury co-star Brad.

“Having long hair is so weird,” he told Men’s Journal. “It’s the longest it’s been since I was a teenager. I’m trying to grow it out for a year or two. Commit to something.

“I’m trying to get out of the pretty boy thing. I want to do what Brad Pitt did – get a little down and dirty. Hollywood loves to put you in a box: ‘You’re the good-looking military guy.’ But I really want to play some complex characters with more depth. Real roles that have real demand for acting.”

And when it comes to his classic, all-American good looks, Scott disagrees that he’s anything special.

When asked by Haute Living what he thinks of his heartthrob status he replied: “I don’t know what to make of that. To me, there are a tonne of good-looking people in California. There are a tonne of better-looking people than me. I’m just trying to be in good movies, produce movies, put together stories that people respond to and like.

“I guess people (call me a heartthrob), but for me, it was never about being that. I’m just a guy, just a normal guy. I go up there and try to work hard and put my head down. I try to be a better person every day.”

Brad Pitt has been cast as the stunt double of Leonardo DiCaprio’s ageing western star in Quentin Tarantino’s new movie.

DiCaprio recently signed on to reteam with his Django Unchained director for the project, which will be called Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, and now reports of Pitt’s involvement have been confirmed.

In a release obtained by Deadline, Tarantino has described the film as “a story that takes place in Los Angeles in 1969, at the height of hippy Hollywood.”

“The two lead characters are Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio), former star of a western TV series, and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt). Both are struggling to make it in a Hollywood they don’t recognize anymore. But Rick has a very famous next-door neighbor… Sharon Tate.”

He adds, “I’ve been working on this script for five years, as well as living in Los Angeles County most of my life, including in 1969, when I was seven years old. I’m very excited to tell this story of an L.A. and a Hollywood that don’t exist anymore. And I couldn’t be happier about the dynamic teaming of DiCaprio & Pitt as Rick & Cliff.”

Tarantino has reportedly asked Suicide Squad star Margot Robbie to play actress Tate, who was infamously slaughtered by members of the Manson Family cult while pregnant with movie maker Roman Polanski’s child.

This won’t be Pitt’s first film with Tarantino – the movie star led the cast of the director’s 2009 World War Two drama Inglourious Basterds.

Tom Cruise has also been linked to a role in the movie, but his involvement has yet to be confirmed.

Timothee Chalamet has landed a regal new role in upcoming Netflix movie The King.

The 22-year-old has been professionally acting for 10 years but was launched to superstardom in January 2017 after the critically acclaimed drama Call Me By Your Name premiered at the Sundance Film Festival.

The coming-of-age drama, about a 17-year-old boy who embarks on his first gay relationship, earned Timothee a Best Actor Oscar nomination, and it seems bosses at Netflix are keen to tap into the rising star’s talent.

In The King, Timothee will play the young Henry V, reports Deadline. The website adds: “After his brother is killed in battle before his coronation, a young king is coronated in the late 1300s. The reluctant ruler wears the crown at a time when England was near a war with France, and the empire is teetering.”

War Machine director David Michod is helming the flick, and he also co-wrote the script, with Joel Edgerton.

Brad Pitt’s Plan B production company is making The King, with Brad producing alongside colleagues Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner, as well as Joel and David.

Shooting is expected to start in June.

Timothee recently told Frank Ocean in an interview for V Man that he was beefing up for a new role, though didn’t say if it was The King.

“The project I’m jumping into is exactly that. I’m going to put on 25 pounds—I’m like a skinny little s**t right now,” he laughed.

The young actor will battle it out with three-time Oscar winner Daniel Day-Lewis, British star Daniel Kaluuya, Denzel Washington and Gary Oldman for the Best Actor gong at the 2018 Oscars on 4 March.
