“Captain America: Winter Soldier” to cast Anna Kendrick as female lead?


Posted by on

Could Anna Kendrick be the next leading lady for “Captain America”? Maybe, according to a new story. found a news story run by Vietnamese newspaper Laodong that quotes co-director Anthony Russo as saying that the role could potentially go Kendrick. Unfortunately, we wouldn’t bet our life on these sources being entirely accurate, but the story does align with what we’ve heard so far about the process to find a new leading lady.

“There are a lot of good talent, but Anna Kendrick gently mixes features tough, especially over time, she has proven her own ability. Can’t say anything, but we do not deny hope to have the opportunity to collaborate with her in the near future,” Russo reportedly said.

Kendrick would follow in the footsteps of Hayley Atwell, the British actress who played Peggy Carter in “Captain America: The First Avenger.” It doesn’t seem like she will be brought forward in time to “Captain America: Winter Soldier,” so Kendrick would assumedly fill her spot as the romantic lead. We’ve heard a number of names up for the role including Kendrick, Felicity Jones and Imogen Poots, so it wouldn’t be much of a stretch if Kendrick does end up taking the role home.

The Academy Award-nominated actress would likely end up playing Sharon Carter, the younger sister niece of Peggy Carter. This would end up being Kendrick’s biggest role to date, following memorable parts in “50/50,” “Up in the Air,” “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World” and the “Twilight” films.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
