Poll: Who Should Play Marc Antony to Angelina Jolie's Cleopatra?

Who Should Play Marc Antony to Angelina Jolie's Cleopatra?

Originally posted 03/30/2011 10:45AM

It's official: Angelina Jolie has signed to star as Egypt's beloved Queen Cleopatra. So, the question is: Who will be her Marc Antony?

Keep in mind that unlike the 1963 Elizabeth Taylor version, the forthcoming Scott Rudin production will focus less on Cleopatra's seductive powers in the bedroom and more on her shrewd appetite for business and politics.

So who should fill Marc Antony's gladiator sandals? We've got a few good men in mind.

From the well-tailored secret agent James Bond to the grubby journalist Mikael Blomkvist, Daniel Craig certainly has range.

Entertainment Weekly confirms that Craig, 42, has signed to play the lead in the American adaptation of Stieg Larsson's best-selling mystery novel The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, to be released Dec. 21, 2011, and followed by two other movies based on Larsson's Millennium trilogy.

Filming will take place in Sweden, David Fincher (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) will direct, and Scott Rudin will produce. So far, no one has been cast in the role of Lisbeth Salander, though Ellen Page, Mia Wasikowska and Rooney Mara have been mentioned.

In a PEOPLE Poll, readers selected Kristen Stewart to play the disaffected and heavily pierced 24-year-old computer hacker with a photographic memory and a violent temper, from a pool that also included Zoe Saldana, Scarlett Johansson, Keira Knightley and Natalie Portman.

If you want to break the box office, you get an A-list star – and Broadway's learning that that's as true in theater as it is on the silver screen.

With movie stars on the marquees of its plays, Broadway is seeing one of its best fall seasons in recent years, selling $21.1 million from Oct. 12 to 18, according to The New York Times.

A Steady Rain has grossed over $1 million, thanks to stars Daniel Craig and Hugh Jackman. Meanwhile, Shakespeare is hot as never before, with Jude Law raking in $904,914 last week, bringing total box office receipts for Broadway to $21.1 million for the week of Oct. 12 to 18.

The applause you're hearing on the Great White Way is for the way Hugh Jackman and Daniel Craig handled an obnoxious cell-phone user in the middle of their sold-out play, A Steady Rain – now one of the hottest tickets on Broadway.

But the clapping for the play itself isn't nearly as passionate.

"It all comes across like an elongated pitch meeting for an over caffeinated buddy-cop movie that might be directed by Sidney Lumet or Martin Scorsese," writes Reuters critic Frank Scheck.

Heard the one about the frog and the prince? Well, make that a frog and three princes ... but this is no fairytale.

Prince William and Prince Harry have joined their dad, Prince Charles in cameo performances in an online video to highlight Charles's fight to save the rainforests as part of the Prince's Rainforest Project.

In the 90-second film, which goes live on several Web sites at 1 p.m. EST Tuesday, the young princes are joined by a digitally-created frog and a few real-life stars: Harrison Ford, Daniel Craig, Robin Williams, the Dalai Lama, soccer legend Pele and singer Joss Stone.

In the short clip, William, 26, and Harry, 24, are shown sitting together discussing their fight to save the environment "for all of us," as they raise awareness of the Prince's Rainforest Project.

Daniel Craig Aims to Take on Tintin

Originally posted 01/27/2009 07:00AM

He may routinely save the world as James Bond, but Daniel Craig is stepping into his bad-guy uniform, to play the evil seaman Red Rackham in the upcoming Steven Spielberg screen adaptation of The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn.

The movie – in which Craig's Defiance costar Jamie Bell (best known as Billy Elliot in the 2000 film of the same name) plays the fearless young reporter Tintin – is already in production, in 3-D, say reports.

Due for release in 2011, this Tintin is expected to be the first in a screen trilogy. Lord of the Rings Oscar-winning director Peter Jackson is set to direct the sequel.
