Welcome to Sizzling Samachar of the day on OTTplay, I'm your host Nikhil

Sizzling news first up,

Helena Bonham Carter

Helena Bonham Carter has come onboard ITV’s new project Nolly. The Crown actress plays the British yesteryear soap star, Noele Gordon. The limited series has been penned by Russell T Davies (known for his works like Doctor Who and Queer as Folk). 

The series will delve into the life of Noele, a widely popular TV star of Crossroads, that ran for 18 years. She was abruptly asked to leave the show without proper justification. One of the popular beliefs was that the producers sacked her since they had anyway wanted to cancel the show. Her exit would result in a drop in fan following, giving them a justified reason to axe it. 

Steve Burton

General Hospital actor Steve Burton has confirmed that the show’s makers asked him to leave after he refused to take the vaccination against COVID-19. “I wanted you to hear it from me personally. Unfortunately, ‘General Hospital’ has let me go because of the vaccine mandate,” Burton said in his official statement released on social media. 

John Krasinski

 John Krasinski has confirmed he’ll voice star as Superman in DC’s upcoming animated comedy League of Super-Pets. Krasinski has joined the likes of Dwayne Johnson, Keanu Reeves, and Kevin Hart in the movie, which marks the actor’s debut into the DC universe. The film, earlier set to hit the theatres this year, will now release in May next year. 


The second season of HBO hit series Euphoria will debut in January next year, the show’s star Zendaya has announced. The trailer for the upcoming season has also been dropped. This season will see many of the cast members from the earlier installment return, including Jacob Elordi and Maude Apatow. 

Anarkali Marikar

Anarkali Marikar is reportedly playing the female protagonist in director Midhun Manuel Thomas’ untitled directorial. The movie also stars Aju Varghese, Indrans, Vijay Babu, and Saiju Kurup, and has reportedly wrapped up its shooting. 

Casey Affleck

Academy Award winner Casey Affleck has been cast alongside Laurence Fishburne and Emily Beecham in the upcoming sci-fi thriller Slingshot. The film will be directed by Mikael Håfström, and is about an astronaut struggling to maintain his grasp of reality while on a dangerous mission to Saturn’s moon Titan. 

Law & Order

Popular legal drama Law & Order has announced that Anthony Anderson will return to the long-running series, reprising his role as Detective Kevin Bernard. Hugh Dancy will join the cast for season 21, alongside Jeffery Donovan, who will play the lead role.

Well, that's the Sizzling Samachar of the day for today, I shall be back again tomorrow with more news from the world of movies and entertainment. Until then it's your host Nikhil out of here.
