Cinecast: Leto Gets Really Method, Schwartzman Cast in ‘Jurassic World’?

Lynne Ramsay+ In order to really get a feel for his role as a trans woman in The Dallas Buyers Club, Jared Leto reportedly remained in character for the duration of production. In addition to meeting with people in the trans community, he waxed most of his body hair and learned to apply his own makeup. Perhaps his intense method will pay off in the end, as his performance has attracted some Oscar buzz already.

+ Four theaters in Sweden have applied and displayed the result of the Bechdel Test to their current screening films. Those that pass the test (achieved if the film features two female characters who talk about something other than a man) are screened on Sundays. It may not seem like a lot, but it's more than what we're doing here in the States for better female representation in film.

+ Rumors are going around that Jason Schwartzman is set to appear in the upcoming Jurassic World, which is a relaunch of the Jurassic Park franchise. Schwartzman's rep has yet to confirm (nor deny!) the claim.

+ Due to her abrupt absence just days into filming Jane Got a Gun - which stars Natalie Portman and Joel Edgerton - director Lynne Ramsay is being sued by the film's producers for not fulfilling her contract.

+ Jamie Alexander has received more buzz about what she wasn't wearing at Thor 2 premiere than her actual role in the film!

+ Michael Caine and Samuel L. Jackson have been cast in an upcoming dramedy helmed by George C. Wolfe, titled Harry and the Butler.
