At Wednesday's Walt Disney Studios Showcase, the Mouse announced a ton of new projects, most of them starring Johnny Depp. Not only will the actor definitely be playing the Mad Hatter in director Tim Burton's motion-capture CGI Alice in Wonderland (as rumored back in July), he'll also be returning as Jack Sparrow for yet another Pirates of the Caribbean movie (that's four now, for those of you not counting at home). What are they going to call this one, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Successful and Still Mildly Enjoyable Franchise?
These days, you can't fire up the Internet without hearing more casting news about Quentin Tarantino's Inglorious Bastards. Today is no exception, as we bring you not one, not two, but three new bastards and one bastardette who have joined the cast. German actors Christoph Waltz and Til Schweiger, American comedian Paul Rust and National Treasure star Diane Kruger are the latest additions, according to reports in Variety and The Hollywood Reporter. I'm pretty sure roughly one-third of the globe's population are playing roles in this movie, or have at least been considered for a role. In fact, just a few weeks ago, Tarantino even tried to tap me for a part.
