Deadline is reporting that actress Naomie Harris joined the cast of “Southpaw“. She is replacing Lupita Nyong’o who was previously circling the role of Angela.
The Antoine Fuqua-directed drama penned by Sons Of Anarchy‘s Kurt Sutter has added Naomie Harris to its cast. The British Skyfall actress last year earned kudos for playing Winnie Mandela in Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom for The Weinstein Co., which is also producing boxing drama Southpaw. Story tracks a welterweight champ (Jake Gyllenhaal) whose career soars as his personal life falls apart. Harris will play Angela, a social worker who works with Gyllenhaal’s character and his daughter.
Deadline is also reporting that actor Beau Knapp joined the cast of the movie as “Jon Jon, the fighter’s lifelong best friend who came up with him through foster care and is on the payroll”. “Southpaw” is currently still in production in Pittsburgh but will reportedly wrap up filming on Monday (August 11).

Deadline is reporting that “A Most Wanted Man” opened strong in it’s opening weekend.
Bold debuts from two of the weekend’s openers in a crowded specialty box office included yet another Woody Allen film as well as a last starring turn from the late Philip Seymour Hoffman.
Lionsgate/Roadside Attractions opened Anton Corbijn‘s cerebral thriller A Most Wanted Man over the weekend after a glittering mid-week premiere at the Museum Of Modern Art (MoMA) courtesy of the Cinema Society and its usual well-heeled crowd. The film, based on a John Le Carre‘ post-Cold War espionage thriller, grossed $2,717,425, averaging $7,527 in 361 theaters. The distributors noted it is the second-highest number in its history in absolute terms, following The Conspirator‘s $3.5M launch in 2011. Also notably, Most Wanted peeked into the top 10 this weekend.
“With a 91% ‘fresh rating’ on Rotten Tomatoes, the film had fantastic reviews, and was the story of the weekend at the specialty box office,” Roadside said. ”[The feature] opened 20% higher than the Roadside/Lionsgate 2013 release Mud, which [opened] on the same number of screens ( to $2.2M) and went on to a $21M total North American box office. A Most Wanted Man went up a very strong 59% from Friday to Saturday.”
10). A Most Wanted Man (RSA), 361 theaters / $716K Fri. / $1.1M Sat. (+59%) / $855K Sun. (-25%) / Per screen average: $7,505 / Total cume: $2.7M / Wk 1
The movie had a limited release in the US and Variety is reporting will expand to more theaters after a solid box office debut..
“A Most Wanted Man” marks one of Philip Seymour Hoffman’s final starring roles and fans of the Oscar-winning actor are helping to make the twisty spy thriller an art-house success.
“Philip never really got to star in movies,” said Howard Cohen, president of the film’s distributor, Roadside Attractions. “He was always known as a utility player…There’s no question that part of the appeal is the idea of him giving a final, great performance.”
The first video coverage of Rachel during the New York City premiere of “A Most Wanted Man” earlier this week has been added in our gallery. We also added a new movie clip featuring Rachel and her co-stars Grigoriy Dobrygin, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Daniel Brühl titled ‘God’s Will’. The movie is currently playing in selected theaters in the US and will be released on September 12, 2014 in the UK.
Rachel is gracing the cover of Allure magazine’s August 2014 edition like we previously reported. We have added the magazine scans in our gallery. We decided to add both the print as well as the digital/iPad edition in our gallery because the layout is very different of both editions. Many thanks to our friend Ali from Katie Holmes Online and Channing Tatum Online for donating the digital scans! The full transcript of the interview can be found in our press archive as well as the additional articles about Rachel’s cover look and beauty secrets.
Rachel McAdams has starred in more quotable movies than any A-list actress – yet she remains a mystery. But the private actress is willing to reveal some of herself, her famous costars, and her thoughts on true love.
Most actresses have one movie they would rather not talk about. They may even want to erase it from their IMDB profile. Rachel McAdams isn’t most actresses. Though she is a star with serious talent. McAdams doesn’t have an issue with the fact that her major big-screen debut was in the The Hot Chick, a comedy in which she and Rob Schneider swap bodies. In fact, she not only talks about the movie respectfully but also considers the striptease scene to he one of her toughest acting challenges to date.
