Hot on the heels of the news that Topher Grace and Taye Diggs will star in an upcoming film musical entitled One Shot, the production’s added another big name. According to Deadline, *NSYNC veteran JC Chasez has signed on to play a bad guy, the star of the stage musical within the film who sleeps with the ex-girlfriend of Grace’s character, a production manager who has to pull together an eccentric cast and crew for the musical’s opening night.

Bad news, Marvel fans: The studio has put a hold on its popular One-Shot series of short films, and won’t be including one on the Blu-ray release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
Sources close to the studio confirm that the omission of a short in the new list of bonus features for the Aug. 19 release is no accident — and it’s not a bit of H.Y.D.R.A.-like misdirection, either.
This isn’t necessarily the ultimate end of the One-Shot movies, but fans may have to wait until at least the home video debut of Guardians of the Galaxy before seeing another (if Marvel Studios decides to keep the series going). It’s a surprising move, given that the One-Shots have only been growing in scale, and have inspired two prime-time ABC television series.
Marvel One-Shots: Might 'Agent Carter' clear way for Ms. Marvel, Loki, young Nick Fury, or Black Panther?
The Marvel One-Shots keep doubling down.
Last week, EW debuted the first look at Agent Carter, a new short starring Hayley Atwell that focuses on Captain America’s Peggy Carter as she makes the post-WWII transition into a chief operative for S.H.I.E.L.D.
When it debuts at Comic-Con this Friday night, fans will see a big leap forward in scale and style for the short-film series, just like last year’s Item 47, about a down-on-their-luck couple (Lizzy Caplan and Jesse Bradford) who go on a robbery spree after activating one of the alien guns from The Avengers.
So where does the One-Shot series go from here?
Marvel co-president Louis D’Esposito, who directed both Item 47 and Agent Carter, offered some insight by way of what almost was: a stand-alone Loki short, a young Nick Fury story, a visit to Black Panther’s Wakanda, and maybe (someday) a Ms. Marvel or Black Widow film.
How about if we leak a little CLASSIFIED information?
Marvel Studios co-president and short-filmmaking impresario Louis D’Esposito has opened the secret file on the latest “One-Shot” film Agent Carter, and EW has the exclusive look at the retro-comic poster and three images from the movie, which will debut at Comic-Con next Friday.
Adapted from Lee Child’s best-selling novel One Shot, Cruise stars as an ex–military policeman turned vigilante drifter, who finds himself drawn into the case of a sniper who randomly targeted civilians.
While we’re used to seeing Cruise as men who are ambitious, highly-stressed, and inveterate charmers, this film (out Dec. 21) provides him a somewhat darker and more stoic soul to inhabit. READ FULL STORY
If Tom Cruise gives you the option of backing off before he kicks you squarely in the crotch — take it.
Monday night’s (ahem) kickoff to CinemaCon, the annual theater-owners convention in Las Vegas, revealed the first footage of Cruise as a street-fighting man, playing the rugged drifter Jack Reacher in next December’s crime drama One Shot. Let’s just say he’s not interested in a fair game of fisticuffs.
The scenes aren’t being released yet, but EW has all the details after the jump. READ FULL STORY
