Here's the Scoop...

Superman is going on an impossible mission in Mission: Impossible 6.

Henry Cavill has been cast in Paramount's next installment of its long-running spy series, Mission: Impossible 6.

Cavill joins a cast that includes franchise star Tom Cruise along with Rebecca Ferguson, Simon Pegg and Jeremy Renner.

Plot details remain under wraps with Cavill being rumored to portray a right-hand man to the head of Cruise's spy unit, Variety reported.

Director Christopher McQuarrie announced Cavill's involvement Thursday on Instagram writing, "Say, @henrycavill. Had a thought. Curious if you're interested in a role in the 6th installment of Mission: Impossible. No pressure."

The actor then responded to McQuarrie in the comments section writing, "How can I say no to a man with such perfect hair." The exchange ended with the filmmaker referencing Mission: Impossible by replying, "Welcome aboard. Your social media account will self destruct in 5 seconds."

Cavill, best known for his role as Superman in Warner Bros. DC extended universe, will next be seen as the Man of Steel in Justice League, due in theaters Nov. 17.

Mission: Impossible 6 marks the second spy film for Cavill, who previously starred in Guy Ritchie's 2015 reboot of The Man from U.N.C.L.E. Mission: Impossible 6 is set to arrive in theaters July 27, 2018.

I haven't seen any of them beyond the third one, but I've heard good thinks about the last two. Does Cavill coming to the franchise peak your interest?

Be Well,
Steve

David Bowie commemorative stamps launched into space
Britain's Royal Mail sent sets of commemorative stamps featuring rocker David Bowie into space using helium balloons.

The mail service sent 52 sets of the stamps to represent the iconic singer's 52 years spent as a professional musician so that they could fall back down to Earth in recognition of Bowie's role in the 1976 film, The Man Who Fell to Earth.

The stamps feature some of the covers to Bowie's most famous albums including 1971's Hunky Dory, 1973's Aladdin Sane, 1977's Heroes, 1983's Let's Dance, 1997's Earthling, and his final album, 2016's Blackstar.

The Royal Mail shared an image of one of the stamps floating in space on Twitter in addition to a video capturing the stamp's journey back down to Earth.

Fans who can correctly guess the location where the stamps landed by March 26 can win one of the sets sent into space.

The stamps represent the first time the Royal Mail has "dedicated an entire stamp issue to an individual music artist or cultural figure" after previously issuing stamps featuring the likes of Pink Floyd and Star Wars.

Bowie died in January 2016 following an 18-month battle with liver cancer.


Tyra Banks to return as host of 'America's Next Top Model'
Tyra Banks will return to host the forthcoming season of America's Next Top Model.

The 43-year-old model and television personality confirmed Thursday that she will replace singer Rita Ora in Season 24 after one season away from the VH1 reality competition.

"I missed my ANTM baby so Mama's back! #ANTM #ANTM24," she tweeted to her 13.9 million followers. "Mizz @ritaora, you exemplify Business Boss Brand to the fullest! Thank you for all the amazingness you brought to ANTM."

Banks created America's Next Top Model, and hosted and executive produced the show throughout its initial 22-season run on UPN/The CW. She stepped down as host after the series was canceled and subsequently revived on VH1.

"I'm overwhelmed and humbled by the intensity of the ANTM fan base whose deep affection for the show led me to have a change of heart," Banks said in a statement. "After giving it a lot of thought, I realized that remaining behind the camera wasn't enough because ANTM is woven into my DNA."

"Tyra has always been the heart and soul of the franchise and her absence was deeply felt by our fiercely loyal fans who missed their Queen of the Smize," executive producer Ken Mok added. "We'd like to thank Rita Ora for being a great partner and total pro."

News of Banks' return follows word she will replace actor Nick Cannon as the host of America's Got Talent Season 12. The NBC reality competition completed an 11th season in September.

The actor was an original cast member and appeared in 251 episodes 2005-16.

'Aquaman' release date pushed back to December 2018
Warner Bros. says its Jason Momoa-led, superhero picture Aquaman is now set for theatrical release on Dec. 21, 2018.

The opening has been re-scheduled to more than two months after its former, planned debut of Oct. 5, 2018.

Deadline.com said the change came after James Cameron announced Avatar 2 would not be ready on the desirable Dec. 21, 2018 date, as expected.

"Merry Christmas," director James Wan tweeted after the new Aquaman date was announced.

Momoa first played Aquaman in a cameo in 2016's Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and he will next be seen in the role in this fall's Justice League.

The Aquaman standalone movie's ensemble will also include Amber Heard, Willem Dafoe and Patrick Wilson.

Which star said that Jake Gyllenhaal is a 'better' cook than Blake Lively?

Ryan Reynolds says Jake Gyllenhaal is a "better" cook than wife Blake Lively.

The 40-year-old actor couldn't help but gush about his 36-year-old Life co-star on Thursday's episode of Good Morning America.

"I easily think he's the most interesting actor working in Hollywood today," Reynolds said of Gyllenhaal. "Definitely one of my favorites. At the same time, he's just one of the kindest guys I've ever met."

"We're hanging out all the time. We live near each other," he shared. "He comes over and Blake, my wife, is very good at cooking, [but] Jake might be just a little bit better. He can throw down."

Reynolds and Gyllenhaal play Roy Adams and David Johnson, two crew members aboard the International Space Spation, in Life. The movie follows the crew as they discover -- and later try to destroy -- an extraterrestrial organism from Mars.

"It's hard to find great stories these days like this one. Great stories that contain real tension," Reynolds recently said in an interview with Collider.

"I think there are numerous third and fourth dimensions in this movie that play psychologically with these things that we fear and then, being out of control in more ways than one. Not just physically in space," Gyllenhaal added.

Life co-stars Rebecca Ferguson and opens in theaters March 24. Reynolds married Lively in 2012, and shares two daughters, 2-year-old James and 5-month-old Ines, with the 29-year-old actress.
