Amidst speculation surrounding the casting for Reed Richards, also known as Mr. Fantastic, in Marvel Studios’ Fantastic Four reboot, it appears that the wait may be nearing its end. 

Although not yet finalized, sources indicate that three-time Emmy nominee Pedro Pascal is in discussions to portray the leader of the iconic superhero team. Despite ongoing scheduling considerations, indications are positive for Pascal’s involvement in this project and other future endeavors.

Pascal, recognized for his roles in The Mandalorian and The Last of Us, is experiencing a career surge with upcoming commitments such as Gladiator 2 and Zach Cregger’s Weapons. 

The focus on securing the Reed Richards role first allowed Marvel to progress with casting for the remaining team members. With a potential early shoot next year, director Matt Shakman is gearing up at Pinewood Studios in England, and Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige will produce.

Pedro Pascal’s versatility, evident in his Emmy-nominated performances and franchise engagements, positions him as a leading actor in the 21st century. While other contenders were rumored, Pascal emerged as the chosen Reed Richards, a brilliant scientist with malleable abilities post-exposure to cosmic radiation. 

Pascal’s on-screen intelligence and authority make him a fitting choice for the role.

The announcement of Pascal’s involvement comes from reliable sources, and despite earlier reports of ongoing negotiations, /Film’s insider asserts that the deal is sealed. 

While fans await confirmation on the rest of the “First Family” cast, Pascal’s casting marks a significant step for the anticipated Marvel Cinematic Universe franchise. Amidst industry shifts, Pascal’s entry into the MCU reflects both the evolving landscape and the actor’s continued presence on the big screen.

Critics demanded him to “Unshave it,” and someone humorously remarked that Styles’ Pleasing sweater appeared to be “made out of the hair he shaved off.” 

On the other hand, some supporters welcomed the change, noting how Styles went from looking like a kid to an “uncle” and appreciating his entirely different yet cool appearance.

This isn’t the first time Styles has experimented with his hair, as fans caught a glimpse of his shaved head at a recent U2 concert. 

While some fans expressed dismay, others speculated that this dramatic change might be a temporary shift before his 30th birthday in February. Styles, a former One Direction member, has sported various hairstyles over the years, from shoulder-grazing curls to short and floppy locks. As fans ponder the significance of his latest transformation, it remains to be seen if Styles is simply embracing a new look for the upcoming year.

Drake and J. Cole engaged in a friendly competition featuring chess, table tennis, and basketball in the recently released music video for “First Person Shooter.” 

The video, unveiled on Wednesday, showcased the biracial hip-hop stars recreating a renowned image of soccer icons Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo playing chess, captured by Annie Leibovitz a year ago during their Louis Vuitton collaboration.

This collaboration produced a US Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 hit, featured in Drake’s eighth studio album, “For All the Dogs,” released on October 6. J. Cole achieved his first No. 1 hit, while Drake’s 13th matched him with the late Michael Jackson for the most solo number-one songs by a male artist. 

In a nod to the King of Pop, Drake wore a silver-sequin glove and socks with black loafers.

The five-minute CG-filled music video, directed by Gibson Hazard, pays homage to Drake’s son Adonis Mahbed Graham through the album cover drawn by the five-year-old. 

The video, already nearing half a million views on YouTube, features a cameo by Brian Baumgartner of “The Office.”

Beginning with Baumgartner managing an office of dummies while playing a game on his computer, the video transitions to Drake and J. Cole playing ping pong before a magical transformation into a stadium. 

Dressed as Spider-Man, the Grammy-winning artists showcase their ping pong and basketball skills, with Drake’s cosmic basketball shot landing in Scotiabank Arena.
