Brad Pitt and Hugh Grant News

Hollywood Actor News!


Trying to catch up on some papers that have stacking up on my desk over the past couple weeks. Most days I come across various entertainment news stories that are interesting, but, don’t necessarily fill an entire post. Today as I was organizing some papers, I figured it was time to put a couple news stories together into one post.

  • Brad Pitt Won’t Appear In Sherlock Holmes
  • Hugh Grant To Quit Acting

No Holmes For Brad Pitt

No one really knows how Brad Pitt’s name got connected with the new Sherlock Holmes movie set for release later this year. But, Warner Brothers is denying a report that claims the actor planned to shoot a cameo in the film which starts Robert Downey Jr. in the title role. Pitt, who was reportedly going to play Moriarty, the arch nemesis of Sherlock Holmes, had allegedly been wooed by director Guy Ritchie to appear in the flick. Warner Brothers has now released a statement saying the story “is completely inaccurate. Brad Pitt is not joining the cast of Sherlock Holmes and we’re extremely pleased with the production of the film.

Sherlock Holmes, which also stars Jude Law and Rachel McAdams, is set to hit the big screen on Christmas Day.

Hugh Grant Quits Acting

Hugh Grant says he’s hanging up his star! Why? Grant says he’s suffering from panic attacks, and it’s making it very hard for him to continue acting. Grant told the U.K. tabloid The Sun that he’s “had really bad attacks” where he “froze up.” Grant went on to say he likes filming, but the acting bit creates the panic attacks.” As a result, Grant said – “I’m packing it in.”

Hugh Grant’s latest, and what could now be his last comedy, Did You Hear About ‘The Morgans’? opens in December. Grant stars opposite Sarah Jessica Parker in the upcoming flick.
