AUTHOR APOLOGIZES FOR SAYING IDRIS ELBA IS 'TOO STREET' TO BE JAMES BOND
Anthony Horowitz, the author of the next James Bond novel, has issued an apology after coming under fire for saying Idris Elba is "too street" to play 007. The writer told UK's Daily Mail last weekend, "For me, Idris Elba is a bit too rough to play the part. It's not a color issue. I think he is probably a bit too 'street' for Bond. Is it a question of being suave? Yeah."

His comment went viral which prompted him to issue an apology to the press and on social media on Tuesday (September 1st) which read, "I'm really sorry my comments about Idris Elba have caused offense. That wasn't my intention. I was asked in my interview if Idris Elba would make a good James Bond. In the article I expressed the opinion that to my mind Adrian Lester would be a better choice, but I'm a writer not a casting director so what do I know? Clumsily, I chose the word 'street' as Elba's gritty portrayal of DCI John Luther was in my mind but I admit it was a poor choice of word. I am mortified to have caused offense."

  • Anthony has written continuation novels to the Bond series originally written by Ian Fleming. His latest novel, Trigger Mortis, will be released next week.
  • Idris has not responded to Anthony's comment but he discussed the idea of taking on the role back in April saying, "Honestly, it's a rumor that's really starting to eat itself. If there was ever any chance of me getting Bond, it's gone."

ANDREW GARFIELD COMPARES 'SPIDER-MAN' ROLE TO PRISON
Andrew Garfield is glad to be passing the Spider-Man torch. The 32-year-old was promoting his new film, 99 Homes, to Indiewire when he compared the experience of making The Amazing Spider-Man movies to being in prison.

Andrew explained, "The pressure to get it right, to please everyone...it's not going to happen...You end up pleasing no one, or everyone just a little bit. Like, 'Eh, that was good.' The films are mass-marketed, like 'We want 50-year-old white men to love it, gay teenagers to love it, bigot homophobes in Middle America to love it, 11-year-old girls to love it.' That's canning Coke. So, that aspect of it was a bummer. Especially for the group of us trying to infuse it with soul, trying to make it unique, something that was worth the price of entry. It was about authenticity, flavor, and truth, but at the same time, I understand people want to make a lot of money, and they're going to spend a lot of money so the playpen can be as big as it was. I can't live that way; it sounds like a prison, to be honest, living within those expectations."

  • When asked if he'd ever sign on for another big-budget franchise, he responded, "I'm not going to shy away from something that a lot of people are going to see. F*** it. Bring it on. Life's short."
  • 19-year-old Tom Holland will take over the role to appear in upcoming Marvel films as well as a planned reboot of the Spider-Man series.

BILL MURRAY EXPLAINS HIS DECISION TO APPEAR IN NEW 'GHOSTBUSTERS'

Bill explained, "I thought about it for a very long time. Like, many, many months. No, that's not right. I was seriously thinking about this for years, really...It kept eating at me, and I really respect those girls. And then I started to feel like if I didn't do this movie, maybe somebody would write a bad review or something, thinking there was some sort of disapproval."

  • He went on to discuss his cameo saying, "You know, they were incredibly nice to ask me, and I really enjoyed being there. They have such a jolly group, and they are going to have great success with this project. I didn’t want to overshadow them or anything, and I feel really good about it."
  • The third Ghostbusters movie stars Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones. It was directed by Paul Feig and will hit theaters on July 15th, 2016.

I got up, and we just came back from St. Barts -- we were on a family vacation filming our show about a week ago. And I feel like, I don't know what happened. I feel like I got a bite on my face and like half of my face blew up. They gave me everything they could possibly give me in 12 hours. It went down a little bit, but not quite enough. I'm a little too vain, I think, to go on live TV with a huge lip." Kris did manage to look red carpet ready when she attended the MTV Video Music Awards with her kids on Sunday (August 30th.)
