People casually calling Chris Evans ‘Captain’ is my new favorite thing. [x]
This fucking guy…
I am haunted by all the editions of books that are prettier than the ones I already own.
Those at YOU HQ who were still sitting on the Benedict Cumberbatch fence practically flung themselves over it on seeing this vision in a wet shirt. BC found his inner Darcy for a shoot with Jason Bell (he of cute Prince George photo fame), who was commissioned by TK Maxx to shoot a variety of famous faces, including Liam Neeson, Kate Winslet and Jerry Hall, to celebrate ten years of its Give Up Clothes For Good campaign, which has raised more than £17 million for Cancer Research. Bell’s photographs will be exhibited at La Galleria on Pall Mall, London, from Tuesday until Saturday. tkmaxx.com.

Brett Ratner’s RatPac Entertainment, Bron Studios and Creative Wealth Media Finance are producing and financing. Production is scheduled to begin in October in Louisiana.
Veteran producer Marc Abraham will direct from his own script, which is based on the 1994 book “Hank Williams: The Biography” by Colin Escott, George Merritt and William MacEwen.
Aaron L. Gilbert will produce with Ratner, Abraham and G. Marq Roswell. James Packer, Ratner’s partner in RatPac, will exec produce.
Producers have obtained rights from Sony ATV for Williams’ songs, including “Your Cheatin’ Heart,” “I”m So Lonesome I Could Cry” and “Hey Good Lookin’.”
Williams was born in 1923 in Alabama and broke out in the post-World War II era with the song “Move It on Over.” Among his hits are “Lost Highway,” “Jambalaya (on the Bayou),” “Ramblin’ Man,” “You Win Again” and “Lovesick Blues.”
He suffered from spina bifida and died at age 29 of heart failure after struggling with alcoholism and addiction to prescription pills.
Olsen recently completed “The Avengers: Age of Ultron” and was seen this summer in “Godzilla.” She is repped by Gersh and Brillstein Entertainment.
How can you not love this man? [X]
When Ben got interviewed by kids… [x]
There were plenty of famous faces at the Variety at Holt Renfrew photo studio today, but Benedict Cumberbatch and Eddie Redmayne had eyes only for each other!
In one of the sweetest moments of the morning, the two greeted each other with big (very manly, we assure you) hugs, Redmayne actually bounding across the room when he saw his fellow Brit was in the house. While Benedict sipped on a Fiji water, the two then proceeded to have a proper chinwag, joined by Redmayne’s fiance.
The two are both serious Oscar contenders in 2015 (Cumberbatch for his film at TIFF, The Imitation Game, and Redmayne for The Theory of Everything, also at the fest) but somehow we don’t think they’re letting the competition get in the middle of this bromance.
There may also be a third member to this wolfpack (he at least has ribbing privileges): Sam Worthington. When the room needed to be silent for Worthington’s interview, Cumberbatch (very loudly) announced to the room: “Oh, it’s just Sam Worthington. Everybody keep on talking!”. [x]
As some people had asked here’s the full article from yesterday’s Times on the Stand up to Cancer campaign which Benedict has been photographed for.
I’ve also included all the images in case people are interested (hello Tom Hardy!)
Photos by Greg Williams.
When the photographer Greg Williams took these pictures, he was looking for one thing: urgency. Gillian Anderson flung off her heels and ran barefoot along the pavement; Idris Elba bolted down a London street; Steve Coogan leapt over a hedge. It was all in aid of the Stand Up To Cancer campaign, which launches this autumn.
Williams lost his mother to ovarian cancer in 2008, after three relapses that spanned 19 years. For this project he asked his subjects to sprint towards him “as fast as they can, as if trying to save a life”.
The first person Williams enlisted was his good friend, the actor Tom Hardy, who charged down the road near his house in a dressing gown and boxer shorts. The idea was that, “He could have just been making his breakfast at home and then suddenly it’s this mad call to arms. He drops everything and the most important thing in the world is saving that life,” says Williams.
Other stars soon came forward to support the campaign. Benedict Cumberbatch, Eddie Redmayne and Anna Friel all took part in a bid to increase awareness. “The quicker we move, the faster we can find cures and help people,” says Williams. “It makes perfect sense really.”
Stand Up To Cancer is a joint national fundraising campaign from Cancer Research UK and Channel 4 (standuptocancer.org.uk)
