Chad Michael Murray doesn’t quite have a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it appearance in Fruitvale Station, but his supporting role is a somewhat surprising turn for the actor who probably has a lifetime parking space at CW network HQ. Still, teen stars who make it big on soaps or period high school flicks aren’t beholden to playing those types of characters forever, despite what the career trajectories of certain performers might suggest.
The buzz from Cannes is that two biopics about Marilyn Monroe are now in the works. One is an adaptation of Joyce Carol Oates’ imaginary memoir ‘Blonde‘. Naomi Watts has been roped in to star in it, while. Andrew Dominik (‘Assassination of Jesse James’) is going to direct. The second biopic is going to be distributed by the Weinstein Co. It’s called ‘My Week With Marilyn,’ and is about the filming of ‘The Prince and the Showgirl’ , in which Marilyn starred opposite Laurence Olivier (who also directed and produced the movie). This Marilyn will be portrayed by Michelle Williams. Who do you think will work the role better?
