Daniel Craig wants a raise from Sony

This one is pretty simple. Daniel Craig allegedly (Hollywood Reporter) wants a raise for his appearance in Sony’s planned The Girl Who Played With Fire. Sony is refusing and may even be trying to wrangle a pay cut. Sony is allegedly digging its heels out of the desire to cut costs, as the first film grossed $232 million worldwide yet still barely broken even due to its frankly absurd $90 million budget. Had the film cost a more reasonable $60-$70 million, it would have been quite profitable for Sony. But it didn’t so it wasn’t. If we must see the two other chapters in the original series, then they damn-well shouldn’t cost nearly $100 million apiece. You could argue that Rooney Mara is an essential component of any sequel and should be hired even at a token higher cost this time around. But everyone else involved is expendable. Daniel Craig, whose character was as bland a male lead as you can ask for, is not a box office draw, period. If Sony sees fit to write out his journalist protagonist, I imagine it won’t affect the film’s financial fortunes one iota. Daniel Craig is one of countless actors who do just fine in a marquee role or a popular franchise but flounder elsewhere. If Daniel Craig wants a raise from Sony, he is welcome to ask for one for the next James Bond film. But outside of the 007 series, Daniel Craig isn’t a box office draw, period.

Adam Lambert clears up Queen frontman rumors

HollywoodNews.com: Adam Lambert is doing some rumor control after it came out that he may be the new frontman for Queen for an upcoming tour.
A report quoted Adam as commenting on his performance with the band for last year’s MTV EMAs: “The intention is to pay tribute to Freddie and the band by singing some f***ing great songs. It’s to keep the music alive for the fans and give it an energy that Freddie would have been proud of,” states The Hollywood Reporter.
However, while that quote was used to interpret Adam as claiming he’d be a part of a tour with the band, the young singer cleared things up over Twitter: “Oooh them clever reporters takin my quotes outta context…. I haven’t confirmed any guest appearances. I was talking about the EMA’S. That being said, I’m truly flattered by your jump to such glorious conclusions mr journalist!! .”

Nir Rosen apologizes for “insensitive” Lara Logan Twitter jokes

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: The journalist who took to Twitter to poke fun at Lara Logan and Anderson Cooper – both of whom were attacked while covering the political uprisings in Egypt – has apologized for his insensitive statements.
“I deeply regret making insensitive but completely insincere jokes to a couple of friends on Twitter,” Nir Rosen said in an e-mail to THR. “I am deeply ashamed because they do not represent who I am, and I would like to convey my most heart felt apologies to Ms. Logan, her family, her friends, all women and to everyone I have hurt, angered and disappointed.”
Rosen has written for the New York Times and the New Yorker. He made a comment on Twitter that the vicious attack on Logan, while not supported by him, “would have been funny if it happened to Anderson too.” Logan, CBS News’ chief foreign correspondent, was beaten and sexually assaulted. She remains in a hospital recovering from severe wounds.
“I hope that my eight years of work dedicated to finding justice for the weak will show my true nature and that in time I will be forgiven for my hurtful statements, which I did not mean at all,” Rosen concluded.
