Pardon, but what is a 'dogie'?
Inspired casting for The Ancient One in Scott Derrickson's DOCTOR STRANGE!

Doctor Strange's mystical mentor has been traditionally drawn as an old Asian man. The actor up for the part is not old. Or Asian. Or a man.

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. Scott Derrickson's Doctor Strange is one of my more anticipated flicks coming in Marvel's Phase 3. Sure, there are the big team movies and the beginning of the Infinity War, but Doctor Strange is such a fuckin' weird character that I'm just dying to see brought to cinematic life, especially with Benedict Cumberbatch wearing the cloak.
I'm not going to pretend I'm the world's foremost Strange expert... My knowledge of the character comes almost solely from his crossover appearances in the Marvel books I did read and the '90s relaunch of The Defenders. But I do know that his mentor, The Ancient One, has traditionally been an old Asian man, so when news came down from The Hollywood Reporter that the role was close to being cast it was a little bit of a surprise that the actor named was... not old. Or Asian. Or a man.
 

 
Yep, it's Tilda Swinton and I gotta say that's inspired. Not just because of the gender swap, but because of the alchemy involved. I can't wait to see Swinton paired with Cumberbatch. She's got a mystical presence already!
It's a great choice as far as I'm concerned. What do you folks think?

News in Brief: Director Seeking Relatively Unknown Actress For Next Affair

LOS ANGELES—Saying that he’s going for a certain look and will know it when he sees it, feature film director Peter Hastings, 52, confirmed to reporters Wednesday that he hopes to find a relatively unknown actress for his next extramarital affair. “I’m definitely looking for someone fairly new to Hollywood, a face that isn’t already too familiar,” said Hastings, who noted that going with an ingénue in her early 20s over a better-established actress could provide just the kind of novelty he has in mind. “With the right person, youth isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Younger actresses are often more willing to take chances, and they tend to take direction well, too.” Hastings later acknowledged that the process may take some time, but said he is prepared to evaluate as many actresses as necessary in order to find the perfect fit.

News in Brief: Alarming Report Finds Hundreds Of Items Still Not Available In S’Mores Flavor

WASHINGTON—Calling it a glaring and unacceptable gap in the nation’s diet, an alarming study released Thursday by the Center for Science in the Public Interest revealed that hundreds of everyday food items remained unavailable in s’mores flavor. “Our research found that numerous items—even staples such as milk and bread—are still rarely found in a s’mores variety,” said CSPI senior nutrition policy counsel Jessica Almy, adding that it was all too easy to fill an entire shopping cart with products completely untouched by artificial graham cracker, chocolate, and marshmallow flavoring agents. “Until all food items are chemically manipulated to taste like s’mores themselves, or at least contain s’mores filling, we urge consumers to read food labels carefully before purchasing.” Almy went on to praise Nabisco for its recent introduction of S’mores Oreos, and expressed hope that other brands such as Minute Maid ...
