The crazy thing is that Cruise is actually a good actor. His roles in 'Interview with the Vampire' and 'Rock of Ages' are proof of that. So why doesn't Cruise challenge himself more? I know that he's an a-lister, but similar a-list actors have had much more diverse careers. I for one would like to see Cruise stretch himself in films like 'Collateral.' My favorite Cruise role continues to be 'Interview.' Given Cruise's career trajectory that's not likely to change. I guess we should be thankful, at least he's not pulling a "Nick Cage."
Lest we forget, Goyer is the person who wrote the disastrous 'Man of Steel' and will be writing 'Batman versus Superman,' which will include Wonder Woman's debut. Between Goyer and Zack Synder, there is good reason to worry. Wonder Woman fans--be afraid, be very afraid!
'Revolution' has been cancelled and I can't say I'm sad to see it go. I tried to watch it, but I just couldn't get into it. It was just such a weird little show and it never seemed to find its rhythm. You can read all about the cancellation on Deadline.
Khal Drogo himself (Jason Momoa) has long been a fan favorite to play Lobo in the new 'Batman versus Superman' film. Momoa used some "colorful" language when discussing the rumor at Detroit's ComicCon. Momoa would be perfect for the role, but I seriously doubt Synder and Goyer have enough sense to cast him.
Speaking of 'Game of Thrones,' several new characters will debut next year for Season 5. Seriously George R. R. Martin needs to finish these books. The show is very quickly moving through the material.
And now for my happy dance...in the form of Jean Claude Van Damme from the 1984 film "Breakin." Yes, that's Van Damme in the black leotard. It was a movie about break dancing. Deal with it.
