Marlon Wayans was desperate to work with Bill Murray in ‘On the Rocks’.

The 48-year-old plays Dean in Sofia Coppola‘s comedy-drama, a husband who is tailed by his father-in law Felix (Bill) and wife Laura (Rashida Jones) as they try and catch him having an affair and says he was sold on the movie when he heard the ‘Groundhog Day’ star was involved.

Marlon said: “To work with one of the all-time greats. I had to do this.”

The star and co-creator of the ‘Scary Movie’ film series revealed that he admired the way Bill was able to switch between comic and dramatic roles.

Marlon explained: “(I really loved) his transition from wild, broad comedy to great dramatic work and dramedy. ‘Lost in Translation’ is one of my favourite movies; his performance is funny but subtle. He is one of the most brilliant actors of any generation.”

Wayans hopes to get a chance to work alongside stars such as Murray, Eddie Murphy and Tom Hanks and is determined to change his approach to do so.

In an interview with The I Paper, he remarked: “I’ve got to be more consistent in my choices and more aware of the film-makers I work with.”

Marlon also dismissed concerns that ‘White Chicks’ hasn’t aged well since its release. The 2004 flick sees Marlon and brother Shawn star as two FBI who go undercover as white women to solve a kidnapping case but he feels that movies shouldn’t be afraid to poke fun at people.

‘The Wayans Bros.’ star told the I newspaper: “I actually think a movie like ‘White Chicks’ is needed today.

“We need to laugh at ourselves more. A good job is when the people you make fun of laugh about it. What’s great is the people who love ‘White Chicks’ the most are white chicks. It’s an enjoyable movie for every race and gender.”

Tom Felton | Tom Felton wants a Harry Potter reunion

tom felton 2163476

Tom Felton is planning a ‘Harry Potter’ reunion.

The 33-year-old actor played antagonist Draco Malfoy in the wizardry series based on J.K Rowling’s novels and revealed that he is hoping to have a “digital celebration” with his co-stars – including Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint – to mark the 19th anniversary of the first movie, ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone’.

Tom explained: “I saw the Weasley twins (Oliver and James Phelps) the other day. We went out to play some golf. (I’m) always chatting with a lot of the other guys on WhatsApp and staying in touch with them and making sure everything’s alright.

“It’s been nice because it’s the 19th-year anniversary on November 14, so I’m planning some sort of digital celebration … I’m trying to wrangle all the oldies back together again to celebrate the achievement really.”

Tom played Draco throughout the franchise and is glad that the character continues to be a fan-favourite, despite being seen as one of the bad guys within the franchise itself.

The ‘Rise of the Planet of the Apes’ star said of Malfoy: “He’s great. He has so many layers, he’s misunderstood, he’s also a bit of a git.

“He needs a hug really. I think maybe people feel sorry for him, he needs a bit of affection. Either way, I’m highly flattered and intend to do my best to satisfy that desire.”

Tom also plays villain The Grand Guignol in Netflix motion picture ‘A Babysitter’s Guide to Monster Hunting’ and relishes playing darker roles.

He told ‘Entertainment Tonight’: “These guys, they seem villainous compared to the other characters, but they don’t think they’re the villains.

“They’re just doing the thing they want to do, what they think is right. You take such a joy in being the master of menace and the newbie of nightmares, et cetera.”

Enrique Iglesias | Enrique Iglesias is Top Latin Artist of All Time

enrique iglesias 2163729

Enrique Iglesias will be honoured as the Top Latin Artist of All Time at the 2020 Billboard Latin Music Awards.

The ‘Hero’ hitmaker will receive the accolade at the BB&T Center in Sunrise, Florida on October 21 in recognition of his glittering music career including selling more than 180 million records. His music has been streamed 19 billion times and he also has 17 billion video views. Over 10 million people have attended his concerts worldwide, with Enrique set to embark on another tour in 2021.

Afo Verde, Chairman and CEO of Sony Music Latin Iberia, said: “Enrique is an iconic artist, a global star, a high-class professional, and more importantly and amazing human being. His music has transcended generations. This much-deserved award is a testament to his continued impact and influence. It is an honour for us at Sony Music to work with him. Congratulations, Enrique!”

Back in 2018, Enrique admitted he wants to quit touring one day and focus on his family.

The ‘Escape’ hitmaker said of his future plans: “There are days when I’d be lying if I said that stopping didn’t cross my mind . . . that probably could come a reality in the near future. When I was 19 and travelling around the world with my first album, there were times I would think, ‘Oh man, maybe I should stop doing this. I need to take a break’. And that has crossed my mind over the years. But now it has crossed my mind a few more times than before. Maybe I don’t see myself doing anything other than a few albums and that’s it. Then, never doing anything again other than being a dad.”

Enrique has two-year-old twins Lucy and Nicholas and Mary, eight months, with his partner Anna Kournikova.

Jordyn Woods | Jordyn Woods: Fashion should be fun

jordyn woods 2163105

Jordyn Woods wants people to “have fun” with fashion.

The 23-year-old model and reality star recently teamed up with online fashion retailer PrettyLittleThing for a collection of clothes, and has said she hopes people will use the items in her range to experiment with their own style.

She said: “What I love about this collection is that it’s different than anything I have ever done and it’s a lot more fun and out there. I think it’s a good time for people to just have fun with what they’re wearing.”

The collection includes several classic pieces, including a black bikini top and matching blank trousers, but each piece has been amped up to bring a touch of glam to the classics.

The bikini top and trousers are both emblazoned with diamante flames, whilst other items in the collection feature sexy cut-outs, barely-there mesh material, and graffiti prints.

Jordyn also made sure to include dazzling accessory options like faux fur bucket hats, leopard print head scarves and jewelled hair pieces to complete any outfit.

Meanwhile, the FrstPlace founder recently revealed she has signed up to the subscription-based adult content site OnlyFans, where fans can pay a monthly fee of $20 to have access to the content she posts on her page.

Jordyn admitted people often find her pictures “provocative” because of her curvy body shape, and so posting images on OnlyFans will give her the creative freedom to post whatever she wants.

She said: “Growing up, I’ve been shamed a lot. Being a curvy girl, being young and seeing the skinny girls wear short shorts because it’s it’s hot outside, but I want to put on shorts and it’s provocative, or I want to put on a tank top and it’s provocative.

“We’re creating art on here; we’re not posting just random selfies. There’s going to be really edgy, iconic photos of me on there, and it felt like OnlyFans was the right platform to launch this project because it’s completely different than anything that I’ve ever done.”
