McGregor in Angels & Demons
Ewan McGregor might seem a strange choice, but he's in line to join the cast of Angels & Demons should the negotiations go well.
What's more surprising is that the film is still moving forward, because we'd heard so little I thought it had died a death, apparently not, and with this casting it seems like it's going strong.
If Ewan McGregor gets the deal then he'll be playing Camerlengo Carlo Ventresca, also known as Janus, who is the late pope's closest aide and who initially helps Robert Langdon, to be played by Tom Hanks.
The story is set to follow the novel by Dan Brown and sees Robert Langdon trying to find out who is behind a plot to blow up the Vatican and overthrow the Church, and the signs are beginning to point to an ancient group called the Illuminati.
Well it's interesting casting choice, and far from bad for the film, but is Ewan McGregor really diluting his career and his acting talent by taking these bigger Hollywood roles like Angels & Demons?
