I’ve been lagging on casting news! I’m sure there’s been more than this, but here’s what I’ve stashed up over the weeks.
If you loved Columbiana, the sequel’s coming!

Marisa Tomei is joining Empire Mimi Whiteman, a venture capitalist, lover of hip-hop, and, according to the title of the Vulture article, a lesbian. The rest of the article doesn’t state this, though. Other Empire casting news includes Kelly Rowland playing Lucious’ mother (I’m assuming in a flashback).

Here’s another image as well. At first, I thought the jumpsuits looked ugly. But I do have to say that I’m glad they’re actually jumpsuits and not form-fitting sexist machinations posing as “jumpsuits.” mechanic/plumbing/electrical jumpsuits are supposed to be ugly and utilitarian, and I’m glad to say these fit the bill.
