Oscarweb Round-up: Star in more movies, Werner!
Also: Baldwin, Martin and Shankman join forces once more and Searchlight declares a date for 'Shame'
One of the stories linked in today's round-up is yesterday's much-discussed news concerning Werner Herzog being cast as a villain opposite Tom Cruise in the Reacher film "One Shot." I doubt very much I was alone by uttering to myself, "Brilliant," when I read that news. And even though Herzog is so distinguishable that it would probably be a little tough for him to act often, I say screw that. Star in more roles, Werner! How great would it be to see him hit his golden years as an actor consistently popping up in films and in a variety of roles? No? Am I alone here? "The new Herzog movie" would take on a whole new meaning. Anyway, let's see what's going on in the Oscarweb today...
