This Actor Actually Trains Like A Superhero - And He's Freaking Impressive!

Stephen Amell, star of the CW's hit TV show Arrow, runs, soars, climbs, and flips his way through the gym.

Actors playing superheroes are fit. In order to wear those unforgiving costumes, they have to be. But thanks to digital effects and stunt men, they can concentrate more on their acting chops than trying to attain their character's super-human strengths.

Then there's Stephen Amell, star of the CW's hit TV show Arrow. The guy moves like a superhero on screen and offscreen. Watching him train, you might believe he really is the hooded vigilante who leaps on and off moving semi-trailer trucks and scales tall sections of scaffolding in the show's fictional crime-ridden city. He soars, dives, climbs, flips, and runs his way through the gym. And like Arrow, Amell makes it look easy.

"He's a fitness freak," says BJ Gaddour, C.S.C.S., a Men's Health fitness advisor. "He has cat-like reflexes, complete mastery of his own body weight, and a high level of conditioning that allow him to flow seamlessly between different movement skills. To do what he's doing takes world-class athleticism."

Could "The Running Man" Be Revived?

Next year we'll see Arnold Schwarzenegger returning to the role that made him famous, the Terminator. Yet it isn't the only role the actor and former governor is planning to return to as follow-ups to both the comedy "Twins" and his two "Conan the Barbarian" movies are in the works.

Surprisingly though, Schwarzenegger revealed at a Q&A in England this past weekend that another films of his may be getting a revisit - 1987's "The Running Man". Talking with Digital Spy about his return to the "Terminator" franchise, he said:

"It's an honor to be asked back after all these years, back to the franchise. This is really wild --- They're doing a Twins sequel, to be called "Triplets" Iv'e read the first draft. There's rumblings of a new "Running Man" movie, so it's a great honor to be asked back ---- [Getting in shape for these sequels] comes back to bodybuilding, I'm used to doing cardiovascular training every day. Therefore I'm still in good shape, and I can do the action and have the energy to do these movies."

The original film, an adaptation of the Stephen King novel, was a dystopian sci-fi action thriller which also sent up reality TV. Set in a totalitarian state, Schwarzenegger played a police pilot framed for a massacre and forced to participate in a popular game show in which he must escape death at the hands of professional killers.

If a follow-up were to go in to production in the next few years, it would be released around the time that the events in the original film were set.

Actors Sought For Young Jean Grey, Cyclops

Chloe Moretz, Hailee Steinfeld, Elle Fanning, Ben Hardy, Charlie Rowe and Timothee Chalamet are all reportedly under consideration for two key roles in Bryan Singer's upcoming "X-Men: Apocalypse" at 20th Century Fox. The two roles are that of the younger incarnations of Jean Grey and Cyclops in the 1980's set project. 

Moretz and Fanning have reportedly met with Singer in recent weeks for the young Jean Grey, but official test offers for the role have not been made yet. Singer seems to be going with an established name for Jean as the role is expected to recur in future X-Men movies. 

The trio of guys trying out for cyclops aren't as well known though. Hardy is a UK soap star, Rowe is a regular on Fox's "Red Band Society." and Chalamet just had a role in "Interstellar".

A younger version of Storm is also expected to appear in the film, but no word yet as to whom will be cast. Production is slated to begin this spring ahead of a May 27th 2016 release.

Cowardly Lion Costume Goes Up For Auction

One of the original Cowardly Lion costumes worn by Bert Lahr in the 1939 Wizard of Oz film is going up for auction on Monday. The costume will be auctioned by Bonhams and has been authenticated as one worn in the film. A secondary costume from the film went for close to $1 million in auction earlier this year.

The costume is currently owned by James Comisar who has a lot of Hollywood memorabilia including stuff from I Love Lucy and Lost. He plans to use the money from the Cowardly Lion costume sale to exhibit the rest of his collection.

On a side-note as we all remember, 'The Wizard of Oz' was mentioned in TSCC in the episode 'Goodbye To All That' (2008) differences between the movie and book are discussed. Sarah and little Marty start reading the 'The Wizard of Oz'.

Yes, among others.
And don't forget the nod in Arrow 2x18 "Deathstroke".

# 308  Poor Fox it couldn't of happened to a heartwarming and such a pleasant and kind network my heart bleeds for them or Poor Fox  biggrin How on earth Kevin Reiily got away with it, I wouldn't care he got paid thousands absolutely criminal. He made a massive mistake choosing 'Dollhouse' over 'Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles' that was one awful move he made for Fox. 
Without a shadow of doubt should of at least been given a third season, even if it came to a slightly shorter season three just to give the story a chance to develop further. 
I must admit the Fox Network are absolutely clueless and guess what they have lost the plot!  yes

10 Best Androids From Sci-Fi Films

5. T-800 - Terminator 2: Judgment Day

Rewriting Arnold Schwarzenegger's terrifying Terminator as a protagonist sounds on paper like a cynical attempt to cash in on his "action star" fame, and to some extent it was. But who would have thought that the cold emotionless robot works better in that capacity? His appearance in the original 1984 film is brilliant, don't get me wrong, but by recasting him as the hero, director James Cameron puts Schwarzenegger's mechanical speech patterns to their best possible use.

And what exactly is the Terminator franchise's take on the difference between human and android? It's a simple enough answer: tears, The T-800 spends the entire movie (between explosions that is) trying to figure out why this is such a special thing. He becomes almost a bizarre father-figure to young John Connor, and their scenes together could spark a number of discussions on the formation of basic morality. Arnold is so good in this role, he practically transcends his movie star persona, a feat few action stars manage.

'Walking Dead' Ratings Set Mid-season Finale Record

AMC's The Walking Dead mid-season finale spiked to its biggest ratings ever.

Sunday's hour delivered 14.8 million viewers and an incredible 9.6 adults 18-49 rating. That's up 23 per-cent from last year's winter finale and marks the highest-rated mid-season finale in the show's history.

Overall, TWD is up about 13 per-cent from this point last year - just when you think this show might have peaked, it surprises you once again. Post-show Talking Dead also had its highest-rated mid-season finale, with 6.6 million viewers and 4.2 million adults 18-49.

Top 10 TV Shows of 2014

1. FX's 'Fargo' 

I'd call FX's "Fargo" a gloriously bad idea magnificently realized, so don't thinking this is a formula that can be reproduced. Using none of the characters and only fleeting whisps of the narrative from The Coen Brother's Oscar-winning favorite, Noah Hawley created his own frost-bitten parable of unspeakable evil, the corrosive nature of weakness and greed, the redemptive possibilities of quiet heroism and the visual wonderment of a Blizzard. Character acting gets no better than the performances by Billy Bob Thornton, Martin Freeman, Oliver Platt, Adam Goldberg, Keith Carradine and a dozen other familiar faces, but it was unknown Chicago theater actress Allison Tolman who grounded this perfectly contained gem of a season. 

This show is one of my all time favorites it was absolutely brilliant. The acting was out of the top drawer and the show was a real gem. Absolute must watch!

Breakout Stars Of 2014

Caitriona Balfe

An ex-fashion model and a relative unknown before landing the starring role of Outlander's time-traveling WWII combat nurse Claire Randall, Balfe appears in nearly every scene of the Starz drama based on Diana Gabaldon's best-selling novels, holding court among a clan of 18th-century Scottish warriors. Fan reaction has been so positive that admirers have sent the 35-year-old Balfe-branded tartans and whiskey---though the fantasy has proved a bit too real for some. "I was in Scotland at a restaurant and a lady sort of grabbed me and said, 'What are you doing here?!''' she recalls. Balfe will go back to the past soon enough when Outlander returns in April. "The second half of the season really ramps up; the action is a lot stronger. It's going to be heartbreaking and exciting,"Balfe promises. We trust you, Sassenach.

Enjoying her very much. such a talented actress where on Earth has she been what a find for Outlander.

I will second that Chris!  I've got a real soft spot for 'Outlander' absolutely love the show much to the anticipation of the cruel wait for spring to arrive. Boy it's been a while since the last episode of 'Outlander'  Still it will be worth the wait I suppose.
