SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A 5-year-old leukemia patient's wish to be Batkid was fulfilled Friday in San Francisco with help from the Make-A-Wish Foundation and the city. As Miles Scott dressed in a Batman costume battled the Penguin and the Riddler and solved "crimes" around the city, he attracted attention in the region and from around the country. Here's what was said as word of his exploits spread:
The American actor will join Ben Foster and Chris O'Dowd on the set of this Stephen Frears feature, according to Thewrap.com. Lee Pace, introduced to US audiences through his role on "Pushing Daisies," has joined the cast of this still untitled feature, produced by Working Title and StudioCanal. The actor's role in the Lance Armstrong biopic has not been revealed. Stephen Frears is already filming the feature, which will follow the career of the American cycling champion.
After showing his vocal prowess in "Les Misérables," the Australian actor may join the cast of another film adaptation of a Broadway musical, titled "The Drowsy Chaperone." Hugh Jackman, who recently appeared in the drama "Prisoners," plans to continue his eclectic career through a role in a musical comedy. Australian actor Geoffrey Rush was reported to be attached to the film in late August.
