Odds and ends from Friday:

  • Billy Zane is the only actor that can go from one of the biggest films ever made in Titanic to Pocahontas II: Journey to a New World. Damn, who the hell is this guy's agent? Anyway, word is Zane has just signed on to star in The Mad for Archetype Films. Pic looks to be ripping a chapter out of George A.

  • In one of the more bizarre stories from Friday, Elizabeth Hurley has decided to give up acting in order to farm organic food in England. Wait -- hold up -- she's becoming a farmer? Says Hurley, "I would like to go for some kind of organic food production and I plan to do it - maybe something Indian." Hmm, organic Indian food? Good luck with that Liz.
  • Not long ago, there was a rumor going around that had Terrence Howard up for the role of James Rhodes in next summer's Iron Man flick. Well, Howard spoke to MTV about the film and, when asked about the part, let out a big old "Mayyy-bee." However he is a bit concerned about the action aspect, saying, "The CGI and special effects, that's a whole 'nother thing. Playing to green screen or blue screen, I've never done that. I want to accomplish it and do it well. I don't want to do anything and not do it well." Will he? Won't he? I guess we'll see ... [via Superhero Hype]
