You know how Disney often announces major movie news late Friday afternoon, to the eternal annoyance of entertainment journalists? Well, they do. And they’re not the only ones. Per Variety, feast your eyes:
“What? That’s not major news! That’s just a B-list actor getting cast in the Love Actually sequel. And it’s not even a full sequel—it’s just a ten-minute short film for charity that already aired in the UK. What gives?” Wait, my darling cheese nips. Wait.
Dempsey will join Laura Linney in a scene in the 10-minute piece catching up with the characters 14 years later. He is one of the few cast members of “Red Nose Day Actually” who did not star in the original “Love Actually.” Kate Moss will also be joining the cast despite not having acted in the original film.
Laura Linney’s finally going to get to bone someone. Probably. Granted, Dempsey is a step down from Rodrigo Santoro. Most men are. But Hot Karl punked out after one admittedly pretty awkward sexual encounter, so I’m all for Sarah boning down with a love interest who actually has a spine.
*Did Sarah finally put her brother in a hospital that doesn’t suck?
*Will there be any more scenes in the American airing of Red Nose Day Actually that weren’t in the UK version?
*Why am I still having emotions about Love Actually given A) it’s May and B) I don’t even like this fucking movie?
We’ll find out. Or we won’t. Is this how the world dies?
