The angry young man of Bollywood turned elder statesman can now add another hyphenate to his stellar career, Hollywood actor with top-tier representation!  In a great piece of news, Amitabh Bachchan has signed with hot, new Hollywood agency Resolution.  No doubt that Anil Kapoor had a hand in bringing Amitabh over to stateside representation as Anil is represented by mega-agent David Unger at Resolution.

It’s likely that Resolution is seeking to build on Amitabh’s great cameo as Jewish gangster Meyer Wolfsheim in ‘The Great Gatsby‘.  He more than held his own in pivotal scenes with Hollywood mega-stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire in the Baz Luhrman directed vehicle. The film was based on the classic F. Scott Fitzgerald novel of the same name and went on to gross over $330 million worldwide.

No word on any upcoming Hollywood projects to Amitabh yet, but he’s currently filming Bollywood film ‘Welcome Back‘ with stars Anil Kapoor and John Abraham.  We’ll keep you posted on any of Amitabh’s future films, both Hollywood and Bollywood, and we’re sure there will be many more Hollywood projects in his future with such strong representation.

It’s no surprise that the worlds most beautiful woman, Aishwariya Rai, was offered to appear in an international cosmetic advertisement, along with beauties Sonam Kapoor and Hollywood starlet, Freida Pinto.

A few months back a little birdie told us that the diva’s were shooting an international advertisement abroad, and insider’s say Aishwariya shot her portion while in Cannes earlier this year.  Other international cosmetic ambassadors such as; Eva Longoria,  Jane Fonda and Julianne Moore were also present.  The brands spokesperson said, “The campaign for this very exclusive collection has different versions featuring different groups of ambassadors including Aishwarya Rai and Sonam Kapoor.”

Although both actresses were present during the shooting, the only Indian actress seen in the ad was Freida Pinto.  So what happened, you ask?  Well, from the looks of it, both Aishwariya and Sonam did not make the final cut after all. “The ad has been beautifully made with all the actresses looking stunning. But Ash and Sonam’s absence is quite conspicuous and has taken the industry by surprise. Freida is unmistakable in the sequence but the two are nowhere to be seen.” sources said.

Hmm,  so that leaves us a little confused. Why were Aishwariya and Sonam left out?

Cannes Film Festival has come and gone and the Coen Brother’s latest film, ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ is emerging as the big winner from this years festival as the Grand Prix (runner up) choice from the Steven Spielberg led jury.  Oscar buzz is already building about this 1960’s fictional look at a folk singer struggling to make it in ’60’s New York.  Although the movie won’t be released until fall, prime Oscar season, critics have been praising the movie and even mentioning a possible Best Actor nod for Oscar Isaac in the titular role.  Carey Mulligan, Justin Timberlake, Garrett Hedlund, and Carey Mulligan round out the latest from the helmers of ‘No Country for Old Men’ and ‘True Grit’ in a movie sure to be heavy on Dylan in the soundtrack.

Here’s a look at the compelling trailer:

 

If you pay attention you’ll notice a period appropriate Justin Timberlake in the film, which dovetails nicely with his recent retro album release and music.

The Palme d’Or went to ‘Blue is the Warmest Color’, although expectations for audience reception of this film should be tempered by the film’s three hour running time and controversial, highly eroticized lesbian romance subject matter.

Another movie making waves at Cannes was Nicolas Winding Refn‘s followup to ‘Drive’ called ‘Only God Forgives’ once again starring Ryan Gosling‘Only God Forgives’ is even more violent than Refn’s previous film, but let’s hope the auteur continues to push the cinematic envelope with his realistic/sickening displays of violence in his films.

Here’s a trailer for ‘Only God Forgives’ to wet your appetities:

 

Kristen Scott Thomas is receiving rave reviews for her turn as Gosling’s unabashedly Machievellian mother.

The flick is set for a July 19th release date in the U.S.
