Vince Vaughn

Vince Vaughn could be landing a starring role in Tony Scott's next action drama. Meanwhile, the Joss Whedon-written film "In Your Eyes" lands its two romantic leads, Hugh Grant explains his role roles in "Cloud Atlas" and Laurence Fishburne heads to Canada for a new sci-fi flick.

It's February 16, and you're tuning in for today's casting call.

Francis Ford Coppola's Vietnam War masterpiece "Apocalypse Now" hit Blu-ray today in both two-disc and three-disc special editions, giving fans their first-ever look at the original 1979 film and 2001's 49-minutes-longer director's cut, "Apocalypse Now Redux," in 1080p high definition. As if that weren't cool enough, both editions are packed to the hilt with "lost" scenes, never-before-seen interviews (including a Coppola-Roger Ebert Cannes Q&A) and illuminating making-of featurettes.

MTV has exclusively procured one such featurette, which shows a very young Laurence Fishburne reading for the part of Tyrone "Clean" Miller. Just how young was Fishburne? So young that he had to lie to get the gig. "He told us he was 17 or 18," said the casting director. "He was really 14... but we didn't find that out until we got to the Philippines." And yet the filmmakers kept Fishburne in the movie and the future Morpheus got his big break. After seeing just how badass Larry was, even at 14, we can't really blame them. See for yourself below...

A few weeks ago, word slipped that Laurence Fishburne had joined the cast of "Predators," the Robert Rodriguez-produced and Nimrod Antal-directed continuation of the beloved action franchise. But aside from the character's name of Noland, very little was known about Fishburne's role at the time.

Today, we're getting a clearer image not only of Fishburne's involvement in the project, but also the scope and setting of "Predators" at large thanks to actor Louis Ozawa Changchien, who spoke with Gigazine about his role as a Yakuza warrior and the film's setting. Read More...

Editor's note: This story ran yesterday, but it had to be pulled for a variety of reasons. It's back now. Fishburne's in the movie. It's gonna be cool.

What could possibly make producer Robert Rodriguez and director Nimrod Antal's "Predators" any cooler? For a start, they could send Morpheus after the four-jawed creatures... and thankfully, that's exactly what they're doing.

Almost exactly, at least, as Bloody Disgusting has learned that Laurence Fishburne is plugging out of "The Matrix" (or stepping out of the "CSI" crime lab, if you'd prefer) to join the fight against the "Predators," the third installment in the much beloved franchise, if you're not counting the significantly less beloved "Aliens vs. Predators" movies.
