(pause for mixed reaction)
Director Zack Snyder says, quote, "Ben provides an interesting counterbalance to Henry Cavill's Superman. He has the acting chops to create a layered portrayal of a man who is older and wiser than Clark Kent and bears the scars of a seasoned crime fighter, but retain the charm that the world sees in billionaire Bruce Wayne."
"Man of Steel" is slated to open worldwide on July 17, 2015.
"American Idol" Wants Bieber's Manager As A Judge
Now that Diddy has turned down the third judges' chair on "American Idol," TMZ claims the head "Idol" honchos are chasing down Justin Bieber's manager, Scooter Braun. Why? Well, "Idol" execs feel like they've sunk too much money into celebrity judging panels. If they can land someone like Scooter, they can save money and have someone on board who can actually develop talent.
Unfortunately, it sounds like Scooter isn't that interested in the gig. Sources tell TMZ that Scooter, quote, "likes being able to go to the grocery store under the radar."
2 Chainz Arrested After Refusing To Get Off His Bus
TMZ reports that 2 Chainz was arrested in Oklahoma City yesterday. He was charged with obstructing a police officer.
The local police pulled over 2 Chainz's tour bus just after midnight because of an illegal tailight... that's when they noticed drug use.
Before the police could board the bus, 2 Chainz and his crew closed the door, locked it, and refused to leave or let the cops in. In response, the police had the bus towed to a nearby police station and got a warrant.
Finally, 2 Chainz and his 10 friends came out of the bus... NINE hours after they were pulled over. All were booked and released on $2,000 bail.
As 2 Chainz walked out of the jail, he flipped everyone off and promoted his new album... : /
