Kim Cattrall Plans to Play Cleopatra in U.K.; Private Lives on Broadway Also Possible

from Playbill.com:

Kim Cattrall

“Sex and the City”‘s Kim Cattrall will return to her birth city to play arguably Shakespeare’s most alluring female character, Cleopatra, in a new production of Antony and Cleopatra at Liverpool’s Everyman Theatre.

According to a report in London’s Daily Mail, no dates are yet set, but she has been in discussions with the theatre for two years to play the role, which is now on track for a limited run in the fall. Cattrall was born in Mossley Hill, Liverpool, in 1956, before her family emigrated to Canada when she was three months old. She returned to Britain between the ages of 11 and 16, when she studied at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA), before returning to Canada to complete her schooling.

Cattrall is currently in the West End playing the lead role of Amanda in Noel Coward’s Private Lives opposite Matthew Macfadyen, running at the Vaudeville Theatre through May 1. According to the Daily Mail, there are also plans to transfer this production to Broadway, after Cattrall completes her run in Antony and Cleopatra. (more…)

Oh my Gaga! Here we go, Gleeks: The creators of “Glee” have revealed the songs that will be part of the upcoming Lady Gaga and Madonna-themed episodes of the FOX series.

Creator Ryan Murphy told EW.com that Lea Michele will do a stripped down version of Gaga’s “Poker Face” and the cast will unite for “Bad Romance.”

EW.com also reports that the cast will also get decked out in costumes inspired by her outrageous fashions. “I do know that we’re all different Lady Gagas, and at one point I am the Kermit the Frog Lady Gaga,” Michele told EW. “I saw a picture of the Kermit the Frog Lady Gaga with a Post-It on it that said ‘Lea.’ I was like, oh, great. Everyone else has incredible Lady Gaga outfits and I have that one.”

Also coming up is the all-Madonna episode of “Glee,” which will be released as an EP on April 20. The digital-music service iTunes not only lists the songs that will be performed, but reveals that Michele’s former Spring Awakeningco-star Jonathan Groff (who guests on the series) performs in four of the numbers.

‘Sex And The City 2’: Find Out Why The Girls Head To The Middle East!

from: http://hollywoodcrush.mtv.com

With only a few weeks left before the big premiere of “Sex and the City 2”, details about the up-to-date doings of Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda are starting to emerge — and today, the new is all about location, location, location! Sarah Jessica Parkerconfirmed in a new interview with the APsomething we all have known since last year: that the “SATC” sequel will find the famous group traveling far East to spend some time in Abu Dhabi.

What we didn’t know until now, however, is what the heck takes them so far from the confines of New York City? According to the article, it’sKim Cattrall‘s Samantha Jones who packs her pals up to take then overseas where ex Smith Jerrod (Jason Lewis) is shooting a movie.

We wonder, though, how the four actresses really got along during filming on location — the first “SATC” movie premiered amid whispers of conflict and catfighting on the set. SJP told the AP that eight weeks of living and working together (without the company of husbands, boyfriends or family to provide a distraction) helped bring them all closer. “It is the most fun and the hardest we’ve ever worked together.”

The movie promises equal parts culture clash and relationship crazies, with the miniskirt-and-stiletto-wearing fashionistas butting heads with local cultural standards for women’s dress (“How do you sort of live up to the idea of fashion being a component of this particular franchise and be in a culture that requires you to be covered, and how to be sexy or lack a sort of chaste quality?” SJP mused), and Carrie running into (gasp!) her own ex, Aidan (John Corbett).

“We bump into each other halfway around the world?” the actress noted to the AP. “That means something.”

No word on whether we’ll see a reprise of Ms. Bradshaw’s previous pinballing between good-guy Aidan and baaaaad Mister Big (is it wrong that we’re rooting for a little Aidan action?), but we’re expecting to see some desert romance and a designer hijab or two before the film is through! And of course, knowing Samantha, at least one icky instance of sand in… er, uncomfortable places.

What do you think of seeing the “Sex and the City” ladies in the Middle East?

Christian Louboutin isn’t excited about Sex and The City 2

SATC 2 Halston.jpg

With the Sex and The City 2 film looming in the not so far distance, we’re getting ready for backstage gossip, promotions and of course lots of pictures of the girls.

However one person doesn’t seem so excited by all the drama surrounding the film and that’s one of our favourite shoe designers Christian Louboutin.

Following a bust up with Manolo Blahnik, the designer associated with the Sex and The City girl’s footwear, producers decided to enlist Louboutin’s creations for the next film.

Any other designer would be over the moon at the thought of this, but Louboutin doesn’t seem to fussed. (more…)

  • Sam Worthington, recipient of the Male Star of the Year Award, arrives at the ShoWest awards ceremony at the Paris Las Vegas during ShoWest in Las Vegas, Nevada on March 18, 2010

By Eric Anderson

LOS ANGELES, Calif. —

Sam Worthington has gone to battle with the Navi in “Avatar” and taken on the gods in “Clash of the Titans” — but is the Aussie action superstar ready for his fiercest opponent yet – Carrie Bradshaw and the Fab Four?

When Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush caught up with Sarah Jessica Parker and the “Sex and The City” gals in Las Vegas for ShoWest 2010 last week, the girls joked their new movie had added a few exciting new twists to compete with the other blockbusters.

“[It’s] 3-D!” Sarah Jessica told Billy. “It has a lot to do with battles…”

“And there’s a serpent that rises from the water,” Kristin Davis added.

“And Sam Worthington is in it!” SJP concluded. (more…)
