Tom Holland gets animated
It’s finally here,” Tom Holland, 22, wrote on the Instagram caption for the trailer of “Spies in Disguise,” his first animated feature.
In the high-profile project, Holland voices the young genius Walter, who works with super spy Lance, voiced by “Men in Black” star Will Smith.
“So cool working with [Will Smith], whom I hope to, one day, meet,” Holland said.
Holland has been extra-busy lately, as his other films are set to be released next year.
On Instagram, he posted about getting “sidetracked” by a pingpong game while on-set for “Chaos Walking,” directed by Doug Liman and costarring Daisy Ridley.
Also scheduled for a 2019 release is “Avengers 4,” which will finally reveal his character Spider-Man’s fate. The actor also shared a behind-the-scenes photo of his solo film sequel, “Spider-Man: Far From Home,” which showed him wearing a slightly different costume beside costar Zendaya. The “Far From Home” shoot has wrapped up, he announced.
It has been reported that Jake Gyllenhaal will be in the movie as the supervillain Mysterio.
Betty Gilpin: Actors are insane
Betty Gilpin, who currently plays soap actress-TV wrestler Debbie, aka Liberty Belle, in Netflix’s “GLOW” (Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling), recently told E! that her relationship with Alison Brie, who plays her offscreen and onscreen frenemy Ruth/Zoya, is actually familial.
“I’m obsessed with her,” said Gilpin, who had roles in shows like “Nurse Jackie” and “American Gods.” “She’s my sister. I used to think the job was the dream and she was the perk, but it’s the other way around.”
Gilpin received a supporting actress nomination at the recent Emmys for her portrayal. She described the unstable nature of the job and its effects on actors’ self-worth as a Hollywood Reporter guest columnist.
“So here’s why all the actors you know are insane,” she started. “Being an actor feels like your ego is on a violent pendulum swing between a field of cashmere and a casual tub of knives.”
It can be downright humbling at times, she elaborated. “You catch your reflection in the mirror. Since there is no longer a team of people to make you look like a preteen perfume ad, you remember what you really look like: a serial-killer toll worker, age 67,” Gilpin quipped. “Your agent calls, and you dive for the phone. Looks like you’re too fat for the superhero movie, but they are pushing to get you in for the grandmother in ‘Farts 2.’”
Gilpin, 32, added, “The seesaw of death is unhealthy and stupid. When I am, or an actor friend is too mired … a stable friend must gently lead us back into reality.” —OLIVER PULUMBARIT
