Michael Douglas Cast As Ant-Man

Fresh from last night’s Golden Globe win for his performance in Steven Soderbergh’s Behind the Candelabra, Michael Douglas has joined the cast of Marvel Studios’ Ant-Man in the role of Hank Pym! Douglas will star opposite Paul Rudd (now confirmed to be playing Scott Lang) in the Edgar Wright film, set for release on May 1, 2015.

“With Hank Pym’s rich history in the Marvel Universe, we knew we needed an actor capable of bringing the weight and stature to the role that the character deserves,” said Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige. “We felt incredibly relieved when Michael Douglas agreed to step into the part with the charm and fortitude he brings to every character he inhabits, and couldn’t be more excited to see what he will do to bring Hank Pym to life.”

Set to begin production shortly in Georgia, Ant-Man will be directed by Wright, who co-wrote the script with Joe Cornish (Attack the Block).

In the movie we will see Pym as Ant-Man in action in the 60’s and then flash-forward to Scott Lang’s story, and how he comes to acquire the suit, how he crosses paths with Henry Pym, and then teams up with him.

The film, which is supposed to launch “Phase Three” of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, will follow Avengers: Age of Ultron’s May 1, 2015 release.

Exclusive Book Excerpt: Artie Lange’s ‘Crash And Burn’

Artie Lange shocked the literary world in 2008 when his memoir Too Fat To Fish became a mega bestseller, debuting at Number One on the New York Times Best Seller List. He was one of the most successful comedians in the country at the time, selling out theaters and reaching millions of listeners a day as Howard Stern’s sidekick. But a little a year over after the book came out, Lange stabbed himself in the stomach nine times while deep in the throes of heroin addiction. He wouldn’t appear on a comedy stage for the next year and a half, and to this day he hasn’t stepped foot back inside Howard Stern’s studio.

Lange’s new book, Crash and Burn, co-written with Anthony Bozza, hits stores on October 29th. It chronicles Lange’s dark descent into depression and heroin addiction and his agonizingly slow return from rock bottom. Here’s an exclusive excerpt from the book.

Comic Genius: Portraits of Funny People By Matt Hoyle

9780733630705

This star-studded tribute to the kings and queens of comedy draws together such legendary names as Steve Martin, Tina Fey, Steve Carell, Eddie Murphy, Robin Williams, Ricky Gervais, and many more.

Granted extraordinary access, photographer Matt Hoyle has captured his subjects in portraits that are works of art in themselves—by turns zany and deadpan, laugh-out-loud and contemplative. Accompanying them are first-person reflections from each of the comedians on life and laughter that always cut straight to the heart of comedy: it’s funny because it’s true.

Page after sidesplitting page in Comic Genius: Portraits of Funny People ($40) offers prose as engaging as each portrait is memorable. Here, in one handsome package, is the gift of laughter itself.

The 200 page book published by Chronicle Books will be released on October 15, 2013.
