On Fridays our plantains are freshly fried! Here's our "Fryday" fry up:
Christian Bale to Play Dick Cheney
The method actor of all method actors has once again undergone an amazing transformation - Christian Bale's next role will be former Vice President Dick Cheney.
Directed by Adam McKay ("The Big Short"), "Vice" is a biopic telling the story of Cheney's career in Washington.
As you will see from the trailer below, Bale is unrecognizable - he put on 40 pounds (almost 3 stone), shaved his head and bleached his eyebrows for the role. However, for Bale this is a walk in the park - for "The Machinist" he lost 60 pounds (4 stone!), then bulked up the very next year to play Batman.
Harriet Tubman was born into slavery and, after escaping, helped others escape via the Underground Railroad. Not only did she save the lives of many, she was also a spy during the Civil War and a campaigner for women's suffrage.
Directed by Kasi Lemmons (who co-wrote the screenplay with Gregory Allen Howard), a release date has not been set yet.
Stay tuned for more news on this exciting project!
Afolayan stars as Chike, an athlete with a bright future ahead of him. Chike has everything going for him - he's talented, a rising star and he's met the woman of his dreams (played by Toyin Abrahim). However, everything changes when he starts abusing drugs - his life spirals out of control and his career is left in ruins.
As filming of "Truncated" has just begun, we have yet to find out a release date - as usual, we'll keep you posted!
