Kanye West has reportedly filmed a cameo in the upcoming movie, Anchorman: The Legend Continues. As Hollywood.com points out, Yeezy was seen filming scenes for the motion picture in downtown Atlanta earlier this week. According to witness reports, he was on a rooftop set with stars Christina Applegate and Paul Rudd.
Ryan Murphy continues to lure a top-name cast to FX anthology American Horror Story. The showrunner took to his Twitter feed early Sunday to announce that Angela Bassett and Patti LuPone would be joining the cast of the witch-themed third cycle, dubbed American Horror Story: Coven. “Two legends are joining the cast of American Horror Story: Coven — Oscar nominee Angela Bassett and Tony winner Patti LuPone!” he wrote.
Details are again being kept under wraps on who just everyone would be playing … The duo joins recently announced Gabourey Sidibe, Kathy Bates and returning players Jessica Lange, Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Taissa Farmiga, Frances Conroy and Lily Rabe in Coven, which will bow in October.
EXPANSION OF THE WIZARDING WORLD OF HARRY POTTER SET TO OPEN IN 2014
Scheduled to open in 2014, the world’s first centrally themed, multi-park experience expands The Wizarding World of Harry Potter across both Universal Orlando theme parks and allows Universal’s creative team to bring an unparalleled vision to this unique project. The new area will bring to life some of the experiences and places found in and around London in the Harry Potter books and films, offering brand-new adventures for fans and theme park guests from around the world.
Diagon Alley and ‘London’ will be located within the Universal Studios Florida theme park, which is adjacent to Universal’s Islands of Adventure theme park, where guests now experience Hogwarts and Hogsmeade. The new area within Universal Studios will be just as expansive, immersive and authentic as the existing themed environment.”
To bring Diagon Alley and ‘London’ to life, Universal’s creative team is working closely with Warner Bros. and the production design team from the Harry Potter films – just as it did for Hogwarts and Hogsmeade.
“Our vision is to create two amazing theme park experiences that combine into one, complete, magical journey,” said Alice Norsworthy, executive vice president, marketing and sales for Universal Orlando Resort.
The new area is expected to include a Gringotts Bank indoor roller coaster, a themed restaurant, shops and the Hogwarts Express will transport multi-park ticket holders between Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure where the current Wizarding World of Harry Potter is located. The train will run backstage, but guests will be looking at video displays of the U.K. countryside and scenes from the Harry Potter movies instead of windows.
Zachary Quinto vs. Leonard Nimoy: “The Challenge”
New Spock vs. Old Spock in latest Audi commercial
10. Oswin is a regenerated River Song. Probably the most standard theory is that Oswin has some sort of connection to River, even possibly being another incarnation of the half-Time Lady. Problems with this include the fact we know River used up all her regeneration energy to restore The Doctor in “Let’s Kill Hitler” and the Daleks are unlikely to have transformed a Time Lord into one of them. Then again, these were insane Daleks, so there’s that.
9. Oswin is an aspect of the Great Intelligence. Having been intimately connected with The Great Intelligence in “The Snowmen,” Oswin may have become able to astral project as it does and transfer her essence to future bodies in order to survive.
8. Oswin is some kind of divinely appointed companion. Speculation on this draws mostly from the meaning of both Oswin and Oswald, which mean “Friend of God.” Clara means “Bright,” another word for clever. “The Snowmen” makes direct reference to the universe owing The Doctor, very close to being a God himself, something. Maybe the universe finally delivered.
7. At some point in the future, Oswin looks into the heart of the TARDIS to become a Bad Wolf-type entity. Just as Rose did in “The Parting of Ways,” Oswin will later absorb the Time Vortex to stop a tremendous force, and leave clues to her future for herself scattered across space and time. Except instead of graffiti she leaves copies of herself to guide The Doctor.
6. Oswin is the heart of the TARDIS. Her sudden and brazen kissing of The Doctor as Clara, as well as her remarking that the TARDIS is smaller on the outside rather than bigger on the inside, could be clues to this. It’s sort of unlikely, though, knowing what we do of the way the TARDIS works. She could be the heart of another TARDIS.
5. Oswin is actually the computerized little girl CAL from “Silence in the Library.” Both are brunettes, and CAL would have enough information about The Doctor and River Song (spending her afterlife caring for CAL in the Library’s files) to know to coax The Doctor with mention of the Ponds. Possibly she is using projection into flesh-like bodies to leave her digitized safehouse.
4. Oswin is in some way Donna Noble. Somewhere locked away in Donna is the power of a Time Lord waiting to be freed. Since the Meta-Tenth Doctor that is her counterpart can’t regenerate, the implication is that Donna herself might now be able to. Or perhaps her subconscious mind is using Time Lord powers to lead The Doctor through time to a specific event. On the name note, Donna Temple-Noble can translate as “Lady Time Lord” just as Clara Oswin Oswald can translate to “Clever Friend of God.”
3. Oswin is the new Master of Fiction from the Second Doctor serial “The Mind Robber.” Trapped in a world of fiction being forced to create, Oswin is using her appearances as a recurring character to call The Doctor for help in fictional stories. She mentions being an entertainment manager in the asylum, and the birthday on her tombstone is the same as the television show itself, November 23. Considering that Neil Gaiman, the king of fiction in fiction, is coming back to write next season, this isn’t outside the realm of possibility.
2. Oswin is the Key to Time. Possibly the best moments of the Fourth Doctor’s run were in his quest to assemble the Key of Time. Ultimately he sends it through time in six pieces to keep them from falling into the wrong hands. What if Oswin is herself the six different pieces given human form like Dawn Summers in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and The Doctor is reassembling them without knowing it every time he meets her.
1. Oswin is the Twelfth Doctor leading himself to his own creation. Extremely unlikely, but a what-if? Is the world ready for a female Doctor, and if so, could they have possibly picked a better one?
Run you clever boy… and remember
