Josh Brolin Gets a Haircut for the Cable Role in Deadpool 2

Josh Brolin has been very busy in the world of cinematic superhero adventures. In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Brolin plays the role of the all-powerful Thanos. Thanos is the super-nemesis battling The Avengers in the upcoming Infinity War film. Over in FOX’s X-Men Universe, Brolin is playing the mutant Cable in the highly-anticipated Deadpool 2.

 

Whether Brolin’s performance of Cable will be embraced by fans won’t be known until the release day arrives. So far, all we have to go on is the image of the “cool Cable haircut” Brolin is sporting.

 

Yes, the hair style Brolin sports in the preview images for the film garners news among fans of all things X-Men. The haircut is not a perfect rendition of the one Cable sports in the comics, but it is good enough. Fans should appreciate attempt at being faithful to the comic character.

 

Casual fans of comic book movies might not think little touches such as recreating a faithful haircut means anything. Getting the look of the character right really is important and not just to the serious film fans. Crafting the perfect rendition of the character helps Josh Brolin out quite a bit as well.

 

Actors who feel enthusiasm for a role are more likely to perform well. Audiences do take to actors who really get into a role. There is a certain realness associated with enthusiastic performances. When extra care goes into making sure the character created for the screen is faithful to the original concept, a little extra enthusiasm is generated in the actor’s direction.

 

And then there is a big question that needs to be asked. Will Brolin appear in a solo film featuring Cable? FOX absolutely would love to add another hit franchise to their production schedule. Let’s leave it at that.

Omari was granted asylum buy Belgium, and has settled in Brussels where he began painting again. His genius series puts privileged leaders in the shoes of the refugee. Omari’s depiction of Trump forces the mogul into the role of refugee, complete with a family photo of those he left behind or lost. Trump is carrying a child in the other arm, along with all his worldly possessions hanging from his arm in a black plastic sack and paper thin bedroll slung across his other shoulder. His hair, skin and clothes are dirty, as is the barefoot child. To say that Omari had channeled his anger into oil on canvas masterpieces would be an understatement.

While Trump’s portrait may be the piece getting a lot of attention, Omari also includes former President Barack Obama, Angela Merkle, the Chancellor of Germany, and North Korea’s Kim Jong Um among others. Omari also includes an emotion filled self-portrait in the collection. Although his imagination fueled “The Vulnerability Series,” it’s Omari’s meticulous attention to detail that brings his work to life. Each face tells a tale of hardship and restless travels. One powerful piece depicts a long line of refugees in countless numbers under a dark sky. Omari focuses the viewer to see modern political figures traveling among the faceless throngs. Omari’s paintings are poignant, thought provoking and haunting.

Omari’s “The Vulnerability Series” will be on view at Ayyam Gallery in Dubai now thru July 6th, 2017.

Jack Vettriano, the painter of the mural on Dixon Street, has been a painter since the 1970s, where he started with only a set of watercolors given as a birthday gift. Since then, his work has been displayed throughout the world, including his most famous painting, The Singing Butler.

Some of Connolly’s best-known film roles include the voice of Ben in Pocahontas, Il Duce in The Boondock Saints, Uncle Monty in A Series of Unfortunate Events, and the voice of Fergus in Brave.

TV’s Batman Adam West Dies

Adams West — both defined and typecast by the role of the 1960s superhero — has died at the age of 88. West died Friday in Los Angeles after a short battle with leukemia, said his representative.

 

“Our father was always looking to project a positive image to his fans,” said his children in a released statement.

 

West gained international fame as the caped crusader Batman in the 1960s television series that lasted for three seasons. Decades later, he found an entirely new generation of fans for his role on the Fox animated series “Family Guy” as Mayor Adam West. He also performed voiceover work on Adult Swim’s “Robot Chicken.”

 

West’s role as Batman will always define his career. The 30-minute comedy-action show, which aired on ABC quickly gained popularity for its weekly parade of flamboyant villains and onscreen exclamations during fight scenes. After the show ended due to slumping ratings, West was ultimately typecast. Although he remained a working actor all of his career, the alter-ego Bruce Wayne limited his options.

 

West was notably disenchanted with the new Batman movies, which were geared more towards the Bob Kane character’s darker side.

 

In Feb. 2016, West appeared on the 200th episode of the CBS series “Big Bang Theory,” which marked the 50th anniversary of the Batman television series.

 

In an interview with Variety, West said that although Batman kept him from getting some pretty good roles, fans all over the world loved him. “I decided to embrace it. Fans loved Batman, so why shouldn’t I?”

 

In 1959, West began his acting career alongside Paul Newman in The New Philadelphians.

 

A rising star in the 1950s and 1960s, West appeared on many shows before Batman. He appeared in “Cheyenne,” “Lawman,” “FBI Story,” “Maverick,” “77 Sunset Strip,” “The Real McCoys,” “Gunsmoke,” and bewitched.

 

Born William West Anderson in Walla Walla, Washington in 1928, West is survived by his widow Marcelle, five children, six grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren.
