For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption as a son.”–Paul The Apostle General writer.

When Kevin Costner is not fixing oil slick mishaps, he sometimes gets to make a movie. Warner Bros. is eyeing up bringing back The Bodyguard to cinemas in 2012, but now it’s Costner’s turn to play the role of the mentor to a bodyguard kind of film super hero.

Costner has just signed to play Jonathan Kent in Zack Snyder‘s Superman reboot film franchise series. The role sees Costner as the adoptive dad of Henry Cavill‘s Clark Kent, playing opposite Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Cavill’s adopted mom in this film.

“I don’t think negative,” says tennis power house Serena Williams from the front page of USA Today. While Henry Cavill of the UK is the latest action star actor to appease Hollywood’s obsession with brawn on film. Meanwhile Japan’s quake crises focuses on the economic impacts on consumers and investors worldwide.

A rescue worker of the United States, David Whitney, 47, who has a history of working alongside Japanese counterparts after an earthquake hit Christchurch City last month, said the Japanese rescue workers who labored diligently in rescue efforts have impressed him so much that he is also committed to continue the same work in Japan.

Two Russian planes carrying a total of 75 rescue workers have been deployed to deal with problems at the troubled nuclear power plant in Fukushima Prefecture – Russia’s Interfax news agency quoted the Russian emergency ministry as saying.

Indonesia has committed 75 workers to help. A total of 116 nations and 26 organizations have offered help to Japan to date.

News source – Japan Today.

Oh… and  this picture of an apple I saw on a truck reminds us how this world belongs to ALL OF US, no matter where we live… not just a few people in power or in the economies game. I don’t see New Zealand or the South Pacific or Asia Pacific on this thing, do you? Could be bad drawing. :)

Trucks need to get with the program in America and update themselves a little, I think!

“As an assistant helped him put on the Super-suit, Cavill recalls: ‘All I could think was: Oh, god. They’re going to look at me and go ‘He’s not Superman. Not a chance.’ The actor inside me was going: ‘You’re not ready! You’re not ready.”‘

“Amongst all the media chatter about the British actor playing Superman, one person has remained mum, and that’s the man himself, Henry Cavill. Well, the Tudors star has broken his silence in a big way: he’s featured on the cover of this week’sEntertainment Weekly, donning a leather jacket over a battered Superman T-shirt. Inside, he opens up about his audition for the role, in which he had to wear the Man of Steel’s spandex suit and shoot a screen test in front of director Zack Snyder (300).

According to EW, “Cavill was feeling less than super in the moment, at least about his ability to fill out the costume: He had just finished shooting a film with Bruce Williscalled The Cold Light of Day, and the part required to him to shed the impressive abs of steel and muscle tone he had put on for the movie he made right before that, the forthcoming mythic fantasy Immortals.

When Cavill was in the suit, “Snyder saw something — or rather someone — different. ‘He walked out, and no one laughed,’ says the director. ‘Other actors put that suit on, and it’s a joke, even if they’re great actors. Henry put it on, and he exuded this kind of crazy-calm confidence that just made me go “Wow. Okay: This was Superman.”‘”–BBC News.

If you want to reboot a successful film franchise of years gone by, then it appears that you must have Twilight Saga superstar Kristin Stewart‘s name attached in some way to the reboot, to make it feasible. She is the spark or the catalyst this year for film franchising’s success.

E! Entertainment reports that Stewart’s name is being bandied around Hollywood to play Lois Lane in the Superman reboot, with newly cast UK guy, Henry Cavill.

Do you think Stewart would make a good Lois Lane, or is she too big as a leading light of cinema to be cast in a passive role, like Lois?

“In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time, and I am honored to be a part of his return to the big screen. I also join Warner Bros., Legendary and the producers in saying how excited we are about the casting of Henry. He is the perfect choice to don the cape and S shield.”–director Zack Snyder describing Henry Cavill (The Tudors) casting as Superman in the well known film franchise reboot.

Reports Film Jabber, “Henry Cavill will play Clark Kent and Superman in the upcoming Superman reboot, to be directed by Zack Snyder and written by David Goyer and Christopher Nolan. Henry Cavill will be seen in the gritty, mythical action movie Immortals, in theaters this Novemeber. Superman is to be released in 2012, presumably in December.”

Congrats. It has to be said that the trend to cast UK actors in leading light Hollywood hero roles in unstoppable right now. A little nod to Prince William‘s rising presence in the world perhaps.

Born this way – I believe that all children of the world were born to have access to clean drinking water whenever they need it.

BTW: At the moment 1 billion people don’t. 2 million children die through not having access to clean drinking water each year.

Born this way to drink clean water – is these kids and their parents’ dream day. We can make it a dream day everyday for them. Let’s make it happen fun people, by clicking on UNICEF’S TAP PROJECT link. Let’s FLOW! Thanks groovy people.
