It really is a slow news day people, so let’s venture into rumor territory. It’s a Monday, the first day back to work and school and we’re all fairly miserable so I picked the prettiest rumor I could find.

And we know there will be casting rumors every week from now until production on the project starts. Or will there?

(Note to self: I’ve got to get in the middle of that sandwich.)
