“James Bond” Author Says Idris Elba Is ‘Too Street’ to Portray 007

September 1, 2015 // 0 Comments

Sony/Screen Gems(LONDON) -- If left up to current James Bond author Anthony Horowitz, British actor Idris Elba would never portray 007 on the big screen.

"Idris Elba is a terrific actor, but I can think of other black actors who would do it better," Horowitz told the U.K.'s Daily Mail. "For me, Idris Elba is a bit too rough to play the part. It's not a colour issue. I think he is probably a bit too 'street' for Bond. Is it a question of being suave? Yeah."

Instead, Horowitz can see Hustle's Adrian Lester as Bond.

Horowitz is the latest author to be tapped by Bond creator Ian Fleming's estate to continue writing novels about 007. Unlike the earliest Bond films, which were adaptations of Fleming's original novels, the latest Bond films -- with the exception of Casino Royale -- have been stories written specifically for the screen. And Horowitz doesn't agree with some of what he's been seeing of the next Bond film,Spectre.

"I'm looking at the trailer and I am seeing a photograph of Bond's family. The mum and the dad are in there and their faces are missing because the picture has been burned in a fire. This is going to be to do with his family background, and I know the fans are all terribly excited to know more, but I'm saying, 'Don't tell me, I don't want to know,'" he said. "I don't want to know about his doubts, his insecurities or weaknesses. I just want to see him act, kill, win."

At least Horowitz likes Daniel Craig, calling him "a terrific Bond."

Spectre isout November 6.

September 1, 2015 // 0 Comments

Eddy Chen/The CW(LOS ANGELES) -- Jaime King is still trying to comprehend that she's a mother to two boys.

The actress, who gave birth to her second son, Leo Thames, last month, told ABC News that having two children under the age of two is "surreal." "It feels like I'm living in a dream," she said in Los Angeles last week. "I feel like I'm so blessed that I'm still not even processing the fact that I have another child."

King and her husband of seven years, Kyle Newman, welcomed their first child, James Knight, 22 months ago. At nearly two years old, King said he's "in this magic time where he's just discovering everything every minute."

Meanwhile, "Leo Thames is a beautiful newborn. He's very sweet and he sleeps and he eats and he does what newborns do," she dished. "I don't ever want to be away from either of them!"

This baby has a very special godmother in pop superstar Taylor Swift, one of King's closest friends.

Monty Brinton/CBS(NEW YORK) -- Ne-Yo is engaged to model Crystal Renay and she's having a baby.

The singer made the official announcement on Twitter, commenting. “Clearing the air..@mscrystalrenay and I are ENGAGED to be married next year. And yes we are expecting. #FromTheHorsesMouth."

He addressed that issue on Twitter, saying, “Clearing the air..I didn't force Mo to tie her tubes. Mutual decision. And the procedure is reversible. #SheCanHaveKids #FromTheHorsesMouth.

“Bachelor in Paradise” Recap: New Women Arrive, Ashley I. Makes a Bold Move with Jared

September 1, 2015 // 0 Comments

ABC/Rick Rowell(NEW YORK) -- Monday night's episode of Bachelor in Paradise marked the arrivals of a few new cast members.

We were reintroduced to Chelsie Webster late in the previous episode. On Monday night she asked out Nick Peterson, who was eager to end his relationship with Ashley Salter. The breakup left Ashley feeling upset; she told the cameras she'd felt deceived.

Chelsie and Nick became acquainted on an ocean cruise, but they lacked chemistry.

Mackenzie Deonigi, from Chris Soules' season of The Bachelor, joined the crew in Mexico and paired up with Justin Reich, who on Sunday night's episode went out with Amber James. Mackenzie and Justin took part in a Spanish ceremony led by a shaman that involved smoke and mud. It ended with the shaman telling them, "You're married."

Jaclyn Swartz, previously a contestant on Ben Flajnik's season of The Bachelor, showed up to paradise and had her sights set on Jared Haibon. Jared was interested in her, too, but Ashley Iaconneti -- who's had a crush on Jared all season -- had a trick up her sleeve.

Ashley I. obtained an overnight fantasy suite date card from host Chris Harrison and approached Jared with it. Jared agreed to the date, and Ashley I. implied to the cameras she was considering losing her virginity to him.

That left us with a cliffhanger for the two-night season finale, which begins Sunday night on ABC.
