Claire Danes Says She 'Didn't Want' Titanic Role Opposite of Leonardo DiCaprio: I 'Couldn't Do It'

Claire Danes Says She 'Didn't Want' Titanic Role Opposite of Leonardo DiCaprio: I 'Couldn't Do It'
Claire Danes was almost the Rose to Leonardo DiCaprio‘s Jack in Titanic.

The Homeland actress, 40, opened up about turning down the role that eventually went to Kate Winslet on Monday’s Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard.

When Shepard asked if she’d been offered the part of Rose, she said, “I think I did. I’m not entirely clear on that. There was strong interest.”

Danes had already starred as Juliet in Baz Luhrmann’s 1996 film Romeo + Juliet with DiCaprio as Romeo.

“I had just made this romantic epic with Leo in Mexico City, which is where they were going to shoot Titanic,

Kobe Bryant’s Death Cuts Short a Promising Second Act in Entertainment

Kobe Bryant’s Death Cuts Short a Promising Second Act in Entertainment
In all things, Kobe Bryant was nothing if not exacting. He was driven, demanding and relentless in pursuit of greatness.

His tragic death in a helicopter crash on Jan. 26 at the age of 41, an accident that also took his 13-year-old daughter and seven others, means that the entertainment industry will never know what the legendary basketball player might have accomplished in the second chapter of his career.

With trademark focus, Bryant was clear about where he wanted to direct his energy after retiring from the NBA in April 2016 following 20 storied seasons and five NBA titles with the Los Angeles Lakers.

Bryant wanted to “impact lives through storytelling,” as he told CBS News’ Dana Jacobson in a podcast interview last November. “Nothing in the world happens without story.”

“Content to Kobe was a means to an end,” says filmmaker Gotham Chopra, who worked with Bryant on the 2015 Showtime documentary “Kobe Bryant’s Muse.

You've Been Pronouncing Timothée Chalamet's Name Wrong This Whole Time

  • Popsugar
Timothée Chalamet just keeps getting more and more buzz every year. He's starred in huge movies like 2019's Little Women and Call Me by Your Name, which really got everyone talking about him in 2017. But we have some big news for you - you've probably been pronouncing his name wrong all along.

Timothée was born and raised in America, but his father is from France, which explains his unique name. Despite the accent mark, he pronounces his first name how you would imagine - "Timothy." However, he has said in various interviews that's supposed to be "Tim-o-tay," not Timothy. Sounds like he's fine with you saying it either way, though!

The actor's last name is a tad bit trickier. You may have been thinking it's "Shal-met" or even "Chal-met," but it has way more flair. Thankfully, back in 2014, when he was starring in Showtime's Homeland, Timothée was interviewed by

Peter Bart: Is Winning Oscar Worth All the Stress For Stars And Distributors?

Peter Bart: Is Winning Oscar Worth All the Stress For Stars And Distributors?
“I just won an Oscar, but will that help me earn a living?” So asked F. Murray Abraham in a note sent to me in 1984 – one that I have faithfully saved. Unlike some Oscar winners, Abraham was both modest and bewildered by his Amadeus triumph. He also correctly predicted the uncertainties of his future.

I thought of him last weekend in witnessing the “cool” displayed by Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio at the SAG Awards. Where some stars may stumble over their fame, Brad and Leo deploy their celebrity to advance both their talent and their social conscience; even Brad’s personal peccadillos serve his cause – witness his playful backstage interactions with ex-wife Jennifer Aniston.

While Pitt and DiCaprio relish the awards rituals, other stars, and indeed companies, are troubled by the time and money that fuel the now greatly shortened process. Actors cherish their kudos, but still ask if

Erik Barmack’s Wild Sheep, The Mediapro Studio Forge Alliance (Exclusive)

  • Variety
Miami — In a coup for both parties, The Mediapro Studio has forged an alliance with Wild Sheep Content, the new and fast-growing Los Angeles-based content production company of Erik Barmack, the former Netflix executive who spearheaded the U.S. streaming giant’s game-changing drive into original non English-language productions around the globe – which is now a centerpiece of the U.S. streaming giant’s business model.

A game changing former Netflix vice-president of International Originals, Barmack’s philosophy was that “international shows can come from anywhere and be seen everywhere,” as he said at MipCancun. At Netflix, he proved that with shows like “La Casa de Papel” Part 3 and “Elite” from Spain, Denmark’s “The Rain,” Germany’s “Dark” and “Sacred Games” from India.

That philosophy remains at Wild Sheep whose first development slate includes a French-language version of the Stephen King novel, “The Plant,” produced with France’s Edouard

Ray Donovan Finale Recap: Ghostbuster
Liev Schreiber’s titular brute figuratively and quite literally buried the past in Ray Donovan‘s brutal, bloody Season 7 finale. When the dust settled, multiple characters — including at least one series regular — were left for dead.

The episode largely centered on Ray learning that his late sister Bridget was pregnant when she took her own life as a teenager some three decades ago. Ray also pieced together that the pregnancy was a byproduct of her being raped by Jim Sullivan, a discovery that forced him to confront his own complicity in her death, doomed his present-day romance with Jim’s daughter,

Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Michelle Williams just matched Sarah Paulson’s TV grand slam sweep with their SAG Awards wins

Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Michelle Williams just matched Sarah Paulson’s TV grand slam sweep with their SAG Awards wins
Break out the brooms because Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Michelle Williams just completed a very tough sweep. With their Screen Actors Guild Awards wins Sunday for “Fleabag” and “Fosse/Verdon,” respectively, the actresses are now the second and third people to have won all five major TV acting awards in a single season.

The first to do so was Sarah Paulson, who claimed the Television Critics Association, Emmy, Golden Globe, Critics’ Choice and SAG Awards in 2016-17 for her turn as Marcia Clark on “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.” Like Paulson, Waller-Bridge and Williams also started their runs at the TCA Awards in August, where they were honored with their respective Individual Achievement in Comedy and Drama prizes — both gender-neutral categories.

In September, Williams won her first Emmy, taking Best Limited Series/TV Movie Actress for her incandescent performance as Gwen Verdon.

Keshet & HBO’s ‘Rise And Kill First’ Sets Yuval Adler To Write/Direct Limited Series On Hunt For Hezbollah Co-Founder Imad Mughniyeh By Mossad & CIA

  • Deadline
Exclusive: Rise and Kill First, set up last year to be developed into a limited series by Keshet and HBO based on the bestselling Ronen Bergman book about the secret history of Israel’s targeted assassinations, has set Yuval Adler to write and direct its first season. The focus: an unprecedented joint operation of the CIA and Mossad to assassinate Imad Mughniyeh – a Hezbollah co-founder who, with the exception of Bin Laden, topped the CIA and FBI Most Wanted list.

Mughniyeh was purportedly behind dozens of terrorist operations, including the embassy and barracks bombings in Lebanon, multiple kidnappings of Americans, hijacking of airlines, and attacks in Buenos Aires, including the bombing the Israeli Embassy there. U.S. intelligence officials accused him of killing more United States citizens than any other man prior to the September 11 attacks. He was also a close ally of General Suleimani, working with him to export

"What keeps you up at night?" That's the question Homeland showrunner Alex Gansa annually posed to Washington insiders before putting fingers to keyboard on a season of his Emmy-winning Showtime drama.

What began as a slick spy thriller driven by a potent sexual chemistry, courtesy of leads Claire Danes and Damian Lewis, evolved into an exposé on the greatest dangers to an America that finally had some distance from 9/11. Threats from Isis, the surveillance state and Russian interference punctuated clandestine meetings with the intelligence community — part of a yearly writers and cast symposium in D.C....

Homeland Ep: 'Quinn Is Definitely Dead' But Not Forgotten in Final Season

If you’re one of the Homeland fans who’s holding out hope that Quinn somehow survived that bloody Season 6 finale… well, we have an answer for you.

“Quinn is definitely dead,” executive producer Alex Gansa tells TVLine. If you’ll recall, back in Season 6, Rupert Friend’s ex-sniper character sacrificed himself to save Carrie and President-elect Keane, ramming his SUV through a barricade and taking a half-dozen bullets to the chest, and though some fans still think he may have lived through it — to be fair, Quinn survived a lot over the years — “I think the manner of his death was pretty definitive,
