Aidan Turner SWEARS He’s Not Being Courted As The Next 007

While I don’t really know who Aidan Turner is, I do know that he’s about to be a star AND his name keeps popping up when we talk about who the eff is going to be the next James Bond. So I’m learning more about the dude, in anticipation. And while at first glance I’m like, wow, this dude looks beard-y, apparently he’s shaved and is also denying he’s going to be the next Bond. Hmph.

Aidan Turner has slammed “rumours” that he’s set to be the next Jame Bond. The Dubliner, who has been rumoured to be the next 007 since early this year, has now dismissed the claims – because Daniel Craig hasn’t stepped down from the role yet. Speaking to Nick Grimshaw on BBC Radio 1, Aidan aired his frustration at getting asked about James Bond every day.

“It’s just rumours, there is nothing in it,” Aidan said. “There is still someone else playing the role and that’s why I don’t like to talk about it. There is a James Bond.

“You’re chatting about someone else’s part, and Daniel Craig is well hard,” he added.

Unlike our dear friend Tom Hiddleston, Turner doesn’t sound like he secretly wants the gig. Turner also probably knows he’s not exactly a logical choice for the role- dude is 33 years old, but he looks younger when he’s clean-shaven. But another Irish bond? Color me intrigued.

Here’s What Julie Andrews Thinks Of Emily Blunt Playing Mary Poppins

68th Annual Cannes Film Festival - "Sicario" Photocall

Passing the torch!

Julie Andrews has given her blessing for Emily Blunt to play the iconic Mary Poppins in the remake of the 1964 Disney classic film, and (as I’d imagine) Blunt felt…relief, but also more pressure to be GOOD.

Blunt revealed to Entertainment Weekly that Mary Poppins Returns director Rob Marshall met up with Andrews in the Hamptons where he spilled the beans on casting for the Poppins reboot. And that Emily’s glad things went OKAY:

“Rob said he was in the Hamptons, and he saw [Andrews], and he said, ‘It’s top secret, but Emily Blunt’s paying Mary Poppins,’” Blunt said. “And she went, ‘Oh, wonderful!’”

“I felt like I wanted to cry,” she continued. “It was lovely to get her stamp of approval. That took the edge off it, for sure.”

The Devil Wears Prada actress explained why she’s so nervous to take on the musical role. “I feel a little more trepidation with this [character] because she’s so emblematic of people’s nostalgia,” she said. “It’s such an important character in people’s childhood.”

However, the Girl on the Train star has a different take on Poppins than Andrews’ interpretation of the character, first created by author P.L. Travers in a series of eight books. “We’re delving into the books a lot more, which is a different version of the character, I’ll say that much,” she said. “She’s a little meaner, yeah.”

Hamilton’s Lin-Manuel Miranda will star alongside Blunt as a lamplighter, Jack, and Meryl Streep is also in talks to join the remake, which is scheduled to hit theaters in December 2018.

Are you excited about seeing Emily as Mary Poppins? Emily’s a good pick, in my opinion, and I think she’ll do justice to the role.

Britney Spears Is Getting Her Own Lifetime Movie

Britney Spears NOT planning third baby!

Yep. You heard right.

Days ahead of Britney Spears‘ latest record release, Lifetime just gave the green light to a TV movie biopic focused on the singer, The Hollywood Reporter reports. Which means, another weirdly watered down life story? Or something amazing? You be the judge:

Natasha Bassett (Hail, Caesar!) will star as Spears in Britney, which will detail what Lifetime described as the “tumultuous true story” of her rise to fame, fall from grace and triumphant resurrection.

The two-hour movie will follow Spears’ early career as a young girl from Louisiana and her relationship and breakup with Justin Timberlake as well as her personal struggles following her parents’ divorce. Also set to be examined are her marriages to Jason Alexander, Kevin Federline and her downfall that saw her lose custody of her sons before she rebuilt her career and proved herself to be a force in entertainment.

Britney will be produced by Asylum Entertainment (The Kennedys, Ring of Fire). Anne-Marie Hess will pen the script with Leslie Libman (Manson’s Lost Girls) directing. Exec producers include Steve Michaels, Jonathan Koch and Joan Harrison. Production is set to begin Sept. 19 in Vancouver for a 2017 premiere.

Brit Brit releases her 9th studio album Glory on Friday and is set to perform on the MTV VMAs on Sunday, not to mention she’s still doing that  residency. Britney’s busy, people! Why she needs a biopic? I don’t know. More money?

Who do YOU think should play Britney Spears in a biopic about the pop star?
