    Sound the cowbells! Christopher Walken is officially the ruler of the known universe. On Thursday, it was announced that the legendary actor has been cast as Padishah Emperor Shaddam IV in Dune: Part Two. He joins a stellar, stacked cast which includes Timothèe Chalamet, Zendaya, Javier Bardem, Rebecca Ferguson, and Josh Brolin. The Emperor was the final major role to be filled in the anticipated Denis Villeneuve-directed sequel. Florence Pugh and Austin Butler will also be appearing as new faces in the upcoming film. Pugh is reuniting with her Little Women love interest, Chalamet, to play Princess Irulan, Shaddam’s daughter. Fresh off his performance as the King of Rock and Roll in Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis, Butler will be playing Feyd Rautha, moody, smoldering bad boy and nephew of Baron Harkonnen (Stellan Skarsgård). Walken will surely lend an air of eccentricity to Shaddam, who is typically characterized as stern and fearsome—and decidedly lacking a meandering Queens accent. He was played by Puerto Rican stage actor José Ferrer in David Lynch’s 1984 adaptation of Dune. The villainous character did not appear...

In fact, Stephen Merchant was left with no other option but to fax the script for “The Outlaws” to his co-star, a self-described Luddite. “He’s always wanted to work with me,” the English comedian jokes in an exclusive interview with Page Six of persuading Walken to join his comedy series. “No, he had no idea who I was, I’m sure,” Merchant concedes. “But somehow we managed to get the script to him. Chris doesn’t have a cellphone or a computer, so I think maybe we faxed it to him, and I went up to see him in Connecticut.” (Walken’s agents confirmed the 79-year-old does not have a cellphone or computer, something he has also discussed himself.) Merchant, 47, says that the first thing the “Deer Hunter” actor asked him...

    Talk about changing your colors. Jamie Dornan famously played Christian Grey, the wealthy BDSM-loving protagonist, in the billion-dollar making "Fifty Shades" movie franchise based on the best-selling books.  But the 38-year-old actor says he identifies more with his quirky, shy character from his new film "Wild Thyme Mountain." "What I share with [the character Anthony] is I'd say probably a lack of confidence and a total not at all sort of self-belief. I understand that part of him," he told Fox News while promoting the movie. Dornan is Irish and the movie is shot in his home country which the star found comforting.  EMILY BLUNT SAYS THAT BEING WITH HER KIDS HAS BEEN A 'SAVING GRACE' AMID CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC "I did also have an idea growing up [in Ireland] that there was more.

The actor, 77, appeared virtually for an interview on "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" where he noted that doing things via video chat is a rarity for him since he stays away from any and all technology.  "Yeah, somebody had to come and set this up because I don’t have a cell phone or a computer," he said.  That prompted Colbert to ask if he was "morally, philosophically or emotionally opposed" to such things.

    President Donald Trump compared himself to an aging lion being attacked by a clan of hyenas on Friday morning when he quote-tweeted a meme promoted by White House Deputy Director of CommunicationsDan Scavino. The meme was produced by Parler user @Solmeme, which features footage of an aging lion getting hectored by a pack of hyenas. The footage comes from BBC documentary Earth, and audio of Christopher Walken’s speech from the 2002 film Poolhall Junkies is laid over the top of the of: You watch those nature documentaries on the cable? You see the one about lions? You got this lion. He’s the king of the jungle, huge mane out to here. He’s laying under a tree, in the middle of Africa. He’s so big, it’s so hot. He doesn’t want to move. Now the little lions come, they start messing with him. Biting his tail, biting his ears. He doesn’t do anything. The lioness, she starts messing with him. Coming over, making trouble. Still nothing. Now the other animals, they notice this. They start to move in. The jackals;...
    A new rom-com Wild Mountain Thyme set in rural Ireland has been blasted for perpetuating outdated stereotypes, with one outraged critic summing up the feelings of a nation by branding it 'worse than the famine'. The film, set to air next month, released its first trailer on Tuesday to much anticipation, but left disappointed Irish social media users howling at the screen due to its 'clichéd script, outdated costumes and "criminal" accents'. It stars British actress Emily Blunt - with dyed red hair and sporting a selection of shawls last in fashion in the 1800s - and Belfast-born Jamie Dornan as neighbouring farmers struggling to find love with each other.  They are joined by Christopher Walken and Jon Hamm, who is the only character speaking in his natural accent as an American visitor, leading audiences to hit out at the rest of the casts' 'terrible West of Ireland brogue.   Viewers even speculated that the film could outdo Tom Cruise’s much-maligned lilt in the 1992 drama Far and Away.  'Even we think this is a bit much,' tweeted the National Leprechaun Museum...
    The film adaptation of Robert Kimmel Smith’s The War With Grandpa was originally supposed to hit theaters in February of 2018, but it got thrown into film purgatory when its original distributor, The Weinstein Company, filed for bankruptcy. Now, in 2020, it’s set to see the light of day, with a theatrical release scheduled for Oct. 9. Robert De Niro stars as Ed, an old man who comes to a compromise with his daughter Sally (Uma Thurman). Instead of being sent to live in a nursing home, he’ll come to live with Sally, her husband (Rob Riggle), and her two kids, Mia (Laura Marano) and Peter (Oakes Fegley). Unfortunately, the arrangement doesn’t suit Peter, who has been kicked out of his room so that Ed can move in. He declares war on his grandfather, and rallies his school friends to help him out, while Ed recruits his pals — Jerry (Christopher Walken), Danny (Cheech Marin), and Diane (Jane Seymour) — to retaliate. The trailer has exactly the kinds of pranks you’d expect — foam sealant in place of Ed’s...
