The cast for Fox’s Fantastic Four reboot has been announced and as has been expected  for a while now, Michael B. Jordan will star as Johnny “Human Torch” Storm. I’m really, really excited about this. Not only because Jordan is a good actor and deserves this kind of break, not only as a fan of FNL who likes to see Dillon alums get good gigs, but because this is the first major instance of colorblind casting for a superhero. Full Story

Two members of my 5 List were recognised at the Gotham Awards last night. Oscar Isaac was there representing Inside Llewyn Davis which won Best Film. And Michael B Jordan was named Breakthrough Actor. Early on in the season, especially after Cannes, both were considered to have a shot at an Oscar nomination for Best Actor. Full Story

The Spirit Award nominees were announced today. And Michael B Jordan’s name was on the list for Best Actor alongside Chiwetel Ejiofor, Bruce Dern, Oscar Isaac (!), Matthew McConaughey, and Robert Redford. That’s great company for a young actor who’s had a great, great year, non? There could be more, too. Full Story

Check out Michael B Jordan at the Governors Awards this weekend. As previously mentioned in the Angelina Jolie post, the event honours new recipients of the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award but also is an opportunity for contenders to get some face time in with Academy members, especially critical before nominations are considered. Full Story

Michael B Jordan was one of three recipients of the Hollywood Spotlight Awards last night in recognition for his work in Fruitvale. Are you tired of me talking about him so much? Too bad! He’s the best. There are a few experts who think that Jordan still has a chance at a nomination for Best Actor but…he’s definitely not a frontrunner, especially when you consider some of the veterans in the race. Full Story

You remember when I used to call Zac Efron LipGloss? He used to be so mega manicured it was like looking at an anime character. Here. Like this: Zac’s been working hard to get away from that. Full Story

You know that thing where your dog gets weird before a storm? I think you, me and the rest of us gossips have that same instinct for when a celebrity is being groomed and pushed on us as The Next Big Thing. We’ve felt it SO many times - we all felt it with Anne, we felt it with Amanda Seyfried, we felt it with Ryan Reynolds (and Gosling!), and for a while now we’ve been feeling it with Michael B Jordan. Full Story

If you’ve been reading my blog long enough, you know I’ve been selling you on Michael B Jordan. Of The Wire, of Friday Night Lights, and now, of Fruitvale which is generating a lot of great buzz out of Sundance and opens this weekend in select cities but, f-ck, not mine. The Hollywood Reporter called him the next Denzel Washington – click here Full Story

Who? Well, for the 12 of us who watched and still miss Friday Night Lights, and the 8 of you who watch and love Parenthood, obviously the most important actor in these photos is Michael B Jordan... And Michael B Jordan just happened to have a very, VERY good Sundance. Jordan’s film Fruitvale, about the last day in the life of Oscar Grant who was fatally shot (even though he was not resisting arrest) by a transit officer in Oakland in 2009, was considered one of the major highlights of the festival. Full Story

…Including Billy Riggins. (Lainey: what? Billy Riggins is on this show??? Why didn’t you SAY SO?) I’ve been trying to figure out who the Parenthood viewer is. It’s not everyone, because then the ratings would be, you know, up.  I used to think it was about those of us who fantasize about big families, but it isn’t that either. Full Story
