Yes No Maybe So: "The Goldfinch"

by Ilich Mejía

Before you ask,five times.Five times I've tried to get past the first half of this book.Five times I've had to put it down to rewatch that one extra-good episodeBojack Horsemandrops every season and then forgotten to pick it back up.To seem cultured,I will lie and say I was in the middle of a sixth try when the trailer for the movie dropped.Naturally,I've neglected to pick it back up since because I've been busy picking the trailer apart to decide how I feel about it.Join me in deciding,fellow philistines!

West Side Story Casting Pt 2: "When you're a Jet,you're a Jet all the way"

If you missed part 1,The Sharks,that's here.

With the casting of Steven Spielberg's remake ofWest Side Storycomplete,and planning to shoot this very summer,let's meet the Jets.We've done the research to familiarize you with the new cast which is thankfully extremely heavy with very talented dancers and singers so we hope Steven Spielberg has a heretofore unknown gift for filming big dance heavy musical numbers! Links go to their instagram pages if we could find them...

PRINCIPALS


Ansel Elgort(Tony)
The 25 year old movie star has been threatening to do a movie musical for awhile now (he was once attached to a Hans Christian Anderson biopic that seems to have been trapped in development hell) and is finally getting around to it withWest Side Story.Major credits include leading roles inThe Fault in Our Stars,Billionaire Boys Club,Baby Driver,and the forthcoming dramaThe Goldfinch.

Ansel Elgort...is a Jet 'til his last dying day.

by Nathaniel R

The first casting announcement has hit for Steven Spielberg's remake ofWest Side Story: Ansel Elgort will play doomed romantic Tony,a sensitive white boy who falls for Puerto Rican Maria in the mean streets of NYC.Tony can't quite extricate himself from his friendships with local gang The Jets in order to live happily ever after.

Elgort has definitely proved that he can move onscreen (Baby Driverwas basically a musical without songs) andhe sings,too.In fact he has already tried to start up a dual career as a singer and this might not be his only upcoming musical role as there was also talk of him headlininga Hans Christian Anderson bioearlier this year.But the West Side Story news will probably rankle a lot of people,if not me,because any remake ofmy favoriteis suspect to begin with -- more after the jump...

The Undefeatedan amazing longread about the careers of several non-household name black actors from 1990s television series
Coming SoonAnsel Elgort in talks to play fairy tale writer Hans Christian Andersen in an original screen musical composed by Stephen Schwartz (Wicked).The huge success ofLa La LandandGreatest Showmanis already taking effect which is nice because we were worried it wouldn't.
/FilmKristen Wiig in talks to play the villain Cheetah inWonder Woman 2.Looooove this idea

MNPPArmie Hammer getting his chest waxed.Nooooo
The GuardianCasting for Quentin Tarantino's Charles Manson movie has begun.Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio are officially returning to the director's filmography.Margot Robbiemightbe joining them.
Coming SoonHave any of you read the Witchers series of fantasy books?It's being adapted to Netflix series with several characters confirmed

Stage (Pssst.Tony Season is almost upon us)
W MagazineLee Pace sorta comes out...in that tortured 'I won't say it,but I'm saying it' Jodie Foster kinda way in this interview about taking on the Joe Pitt role in the revival ofAngels in America
Theater ManiaHarry Connick Jr is now in rehearsals for the debut of a new musical based on Best Picture winnerThe Sting.It's going to premiere at New Jersey's Papermill Playhouse (which is a great place to see shows)
Show-ScoreA list of all the current NYC stage shows offering lottery tickets (i.e.cheap seats for lucky winners) not that I want to give myself competition as I'm already losingAngels in AmericaandFrozendaily.But these lotteries do actually send people to shows every single  day who couldn't afford it otherwise.I only ever enter sporadically (if I remember / am dying to see a show / friends visiting NYC etc) and I've won thrice over the years and seenWest Side Story,Wicked,andKinky Bootsquite cheaply.Though I suspect it's harder to win now that all the lotteries are online instead of in person (i.e.less commitment to enter so way more competition).
