Crayen news Comments Off on James Marsden, Amber Heard Among Four Cast in ‘The Stand’ at CBS All Access
CBS All Access has set four of the leads for its upcoming series “The Stand.”
Based on the Stephen King novel of the same name, “The Stand” will star James Marsden, Amber Heard, Odessa Young and Henry Zaga in main roles. The streaming platform has also revealed that the prolific author himself will write the final episode of the series, providing a “new coda” that goes beyond the book. The announcements were made by Julie McNamara, executive vice president of original content for All Access at CBS’ summer Television Critics Association presentation.
“The Stand” presents an apocalyptic vision of a world decimated by plague and embroiled in an elemental struggle between good and evil. The fate of mankind rests on the frail shoulders of the 108-year-old other Mother Abagail and a handful of survivors.
Crayen news Comments Off on Quentin Tarantino Tapped James Marsden to Play Burt Reynolds in Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood
Quentin Tarantino packs a million stars into Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood, his meticulous ode to a bygone era. Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, and Margot Robbie lead the film, which is rounded out by dozens of other famous faces, including Al Pacino, Kurt Russell, Dakota Fanning, Lena Dunham, and Luke Perry, among others. One more star could have been added to the mix: James Marsden, who was announced as part of the film’s cast last June. However, his role was ultimately cut. According to Collider, though, it’s come to light that the Westworld actor was supposed to play a young Burt Reynolds.
Reynolds, who died in 2018, got his start in Hollywood in a number of Westerns, like the series Gunsmoke and the film 100 Rifles. So it makes perfect sense that he would have popped up in Once Upon a Time, a film set during 1969. Tarantino is an avowed Western fan; in the film, DiCaprio plays a fictional actor named Rick Dalton, who makes a name for himself by starring in several Westerns. It’s unclear what happened with Marsden’s role. Reps for the actor have not yet responded to Vanity Fair’s request for comment.
In a recent interview with Deadline, Tarantino said that he initially gave Reynolds the Once Upon a Time script, so the actor could vet the accuracy of the story and the Western references. As a result, the pair struck up a friendship.
Crayen news Comments Off on James Marsden Circling Lead Role Of Stu Redman In ‘The Stand,’ CBS All Access Adaptation Of Stephen King Classic
James Marsden is circling the role of Stu Redman In The Stand, the CBS Studios/CBS All Access limited series adaptation of the classic Stephen King horror novel. Josh Boone (The Fault In Our Stars) is directing the nine episode arc that he’s scripted with Ben Cavell, based on the post-apocalyptic horror novel by King that vividly outlines the total breakdown of society after the accidental release of a strain of influenza that had been modified for biological warfare and causes an apocalyptic pandemic which kills off the majority of the world’s human population.
Played in the 1994 miniseries adaptation by Gary Sinise, Redman is a former military man who is immune to the virus. He found patient zero in the original quarantine zone but never got sick so the government was precious with him in order to try to find a vaccine from his blood.
Boone is exec producing with Cavell, Jimmy Miller and Roy Lee.
Marsden most recently has been starring in Netflix’s Dead to Me, this after his work in HBO’s Westworld and he has a role in the upcoming Sonic The Hedgehog. CAA and Authentic rep him.
Crayen interview Comments Off on James Marsden on going from ‘Westworld’ to ‘Dead to Me’
James Marsden knows a thing or two about being pegged as the bad-guy love interest. Hello, this is the guy who has spent the better part of the last 15 years being considered the “villain” in the modern-day romantic classic ‘The Notebook’ with his portrayal as Lon, the non-Ryan Gosling war veteran and interim love interest to Rachel McAdam’s Allie. It’s a reputation he still challenges.
“There was nothing wrong with Lon in ‘The Notebook,’” Marsden says matter-of-factly, with a layer of playfulness. “But for some reason, he’s the bad guy. And it’s like, wait, [he’s] letting her actually go figure her stuff out. He’s understanding! But some people think he’s the bad guy.” With his role in ‘Dead to Me,’ Marsden at least understands the animus. (Warning: spoilers ahead.)
The buzzed-about Netflix traumedy, released earlier this month, stars Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini in a story centred on the unlikely — and darkly twisted — friendship between two women. Judy (Cardellini) befriends Jen (Applegate) at a grief counselling group not long after the hit-and-run death of Jen’s husband, Ted. Viewers soon learn that Judy was driving the car that killed Ted. And she’s been covering it up at the urging of her smarmy, narcissistic, money-laundering ex-fiance Steve (Marsden), who was in the car with her when it happened.

Crayen news Comments Off on Sarah Paulson, Uzo Aduba, Rose Byrne, James Marsden Join Cate Blanchett in FX Drama
FX is adding a who’s-who of top talent to join Cate Blanchett in Mrs. America.
Uzo Aduba, Rose Byrne, Kayli Carter, Ari Graynor, Melanie Lynskey, James Marsden, Margo Martindale, Sarah Paulson, John Slattery, Jeanne Tripplehorn and Tracey Ullman have boarded the nine-episode limited series, which focuses on efforts to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment.
The project looks at the unexpected backlash led by a conservative woman named Phyllis Schlafly (Blanchett). Through the eyes of the women of that era — Schlafly and second-wave feminists Gloria Steinem (Byrne), Betty Friedan (Ullman), Shirley Chisholm (Aduba), Bella Abzug (Martindale) and Jill Ruckelshaus (not yet cast) — the series will explore how one of the toughest battlegrounds in the culture wars of the 1970s helped give rise to the Moral Majority and forever shifted our political landscape.
