There’s typecasting, and then there’s very, very, specific typecasting. And then there’s Charles Manson casting, which Australian actor Damon Herriman has fallen victim to. He’s been cast to play Charlie in two different productions. According to Collider, Damon has already filmed scenes as Charlie for the upcoming season of David Fincher’s Netflix series Mindhunter. And it’s just been announced that he was signed to play Charlie in Quentin Tarantino‘s Once Upon a Time In Hollywood which maybe they should considering renaming Twice Upon A Time.
Anyone who was looking forward to rushing out on opening night to watch Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio in vintage Sears catalogue models realness in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood just realized that everything good comes at a price. And this price of admission now includes Lena Dunham. You wish on a haunted monkey’s paw for Brad Pitt to look hot again, and this is what you get.
The Hollywood Reporter has some new casting news regarding Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming Manson Family film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. Lena has been cast in an unknown role, and this will be her fist big studio appearance on film (she’s been in movies before, but mostly indies). It will also be her first onscreen role since her show Girls ended in 2017.
Also added to the cast list along side Brad, Leo, Al Pacino, Dakota Fanning, Damian Lewis, James Marsden, Luke Perry, and Margot Robbie as Sharon Tate is Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman’s daughter Maya Hawke (huh, I wonder how she landed that gig). Also former wife of Eli Roth, Lorenza Izzo, and Vanessa Hudgens’ boyfriend Austin Butler.
The movie is still a bit of a secret, so we don’t really know who is playing what, besides Brad, Leo, and Margot. But my guess is Lena might play the only Manson Family member who is specifically asked to leave for talking too damn much and having less of a filter than Charlie.
Margot Robbie is playing Sharon Tate in the Quentin Tarantino movie about the Manson Family murders, the movie that Sharon’s sister was against but is now okay with. Margot took to Instagram today to show off her lewk that actually looks pretty decent – Brad Pitt, who did you piss off in the makeup trailer??
Back in the 90s, all Julia Roberts had to do was fart on camera (or just do Mona Lisa Smile…same difference), and a production studio would fork over $20 million. These days, Hollywood is pinching pennies, realizing audiences care more about the CGI than who is starring in a flick. Why pay for Meryl Streep when you can just hire one of those Westworld robots? It doesn’t mean you’re going to see The Rock and other actors in line at the soup kitchen…it just means they’re paid differently (aka back-end deals). Or, if you’re him, you just say you won’t Tweet about the movie you have opening on Friday unless the studio forks over a cool million dollars. Continue reading
A couple of months, Uma Thurman revealed that she had sustained major knee and back damage while filming Kill Bill and Kill Bill Vol. 2 back in 2003. The car she was driving was about as iffy as Quentin Tarantino’s dye job, and she ended up crashing. At the time, she accused Quentin of trying to kill her. If you ask Uma’s knees whether they’d like to work with Quentin again, they’d probably answer by knocking out “NO” in Morse code. But if you ask Uma, like someone recently has, she’d answer yes.
Leonardo DiCaprio And Brad Pitt Are The Most Dynamic Duo Since Paul Newman and Robert Redford, According To Quentin Tarantino
That’s a Photoshopped picture of Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio’s faces on the wax figures of film legends Robert Redford and Paul Newman (as their characters from Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid). But if Quentin Tarantino’s instincts prove to be correct, then Madame Tussauds better get ready to retire Bobby and Paul and start working on carving a new legendary duo out of wax. But maybe they can keep that sassy pose for Leo?
