The title says it all. A lot of people are in a lot of things now that Hollywood has declared diversity the New Best Thing. Because life wasn’t diverse before, apparently. Let’s just get into who’s going to be seen in what and what we can expect from that Bruce Lee biopic.
Eddie Redmayne’s post-Oscars career glow is continuing with the announcement of his role as 1930s Danish artist Lili Elbe in The Danish Girl. In true Oscars fashion, he’s playing a role that will require a complete transformation of himself.
