Peter Sarsgaard Joins The Magnificent Seven Remake Cast

Peter Sarsgaard to join The Magnificent Seven. The Garden State star and The Man in the Iron Mask actor, who played Raoul, the ill-fated son of Athos will now be a villain in the Director Antoine Fuqua upcoming movie remake. Variety has reported that Sarsgaard has signed up and he will play the story’s chief antagonist. Joining Sarsgaard will be Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Haley Bennett, Ethan Hawke, Wagner Moura, Byung-hun Lee, Matt Bomer and Vincent D’Onofrio.

Originally drafted by “True Detective” scribe Nic Pizzolatto (since rewritten by The Blind Side‘s John Lee Hancock), The Magnificent Seven will remake the 1960 film directed by John Sturges that itself was inspired by Akira Kurosawa’s 1954 classic Seven Samurai. Sturges’ version starred Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson, James Coburn and Robert Vaughn as a group of disparate gunmen who come together to protect a Mexican village from bandits led by Eli Wallach. It led to a number of sequels as well as a CBS television series.

The new film is said to feature a victimized mining town, taken over by a gold baron (Sarsgaard), rather than the Mexican village of the original.

Sarsgaard is from Scott Air Force Base, Illinois, the son of an Air Force engineer and later worked for Monsanto and IBM. Sarsgaard served as an altar boy and once wanted to become a soccer player and took up ballet to help improve his coordination.

Alexander McQueen Made Previous Suicide Attempts Before His Death

Alexander McQueen made some previous suicide attempts. Well, this is according to his older sister Janet, she is claiming that the British fashion designer and couturier known for his work as chief designer at Givenchy did make a number attempts in taking his own life.

The late fashion designer’s sibling has claimed that a number of people close to Alexander knew of his previous suicide attempts before he ultimately killed himself in February 2010, but his family were kept in the dark about his state of mind and she feels as though those individuals let him down.

In an interview with The Times newspaper, she said:

”People knew his state of mind and his family didn’t … other people did know. They knew about the other suicide attempts. We didn’t. We knew he took cocaine, but when we approached him he’d say, ‘You don’t understand. There’s such pressure. I need to relax.”’

Janet insists she and the rest of the family, including his other two sisters, would have done everything they could to help Alexander if they knew how unhappy he was at the time of his death.

She said:

”If we’d known the extent of it, we would have been bashing down doors, but we didn’t. We all spoke to (Alexander) about the drugs, but he was a man in his late thirties. It didn’t matter what we said.”

The East London native was just forty years old at the time of his death, as he committed suicide just one day before his mother Joyce’s funeral and nine days after she had died from cancer at the age of seventy-five, such as sad story.

Janet claims she and the rest of Alexander’s family are not allowed any input into the Alexander McQueen brand, but she appreciates the efforts of Sarah Burton – the label’s creative director – to keep them involved.

She said:

”We’re not included at all. In fact, I think I’m enemy number one with all of them … but throughout all this, the one person that wanted to keep us on board was Sarah.”

Sam Smith’s Underwent Successful Vocal Cord Microsurgery

Sam Smith‘s surgery was a success. Smith is an English singer and he rose to fame when he was featured on Disclosure’s breakthrough single “Latch” had a hemorrhaged vocal cords operation. Just last month he had no choice but put a halt to his Australian shows and putting his recording album on hold, well now the expectation is that he will make a full recovery. He had the surgery done on Thursday, May 14, 205 in Boston.

In a statement, Massachusetts General Hospital, which treated the British star, said:

“Sam Smith underwent vocal cord microsurgery by Steven Zeitels, MD, to stop recurrent vocal cord hemorrhage (bleeding). This condition is the result of unstable blood vessels in the vocal cord that can rupture and prevent vocal performance.

“Sam came to Boston to consult and undergo corrective voice surgery with Zeitels, the director of the Massachusetts General Hospital Voice Centre. Zeitels, who is also the Eugene B. Casey Professor of Laryngeal Surgery at Harvard Medical School, has pioneered many vocal cord surgery procedures for benign and malignant problems including the use of specialized lasers to stop vocal cord bleeding in singers. He has performed this unique procedure for many vocalists – including Steven Tyler, Lionel Richie, and Adele – allowing them to return to full performance. Similarly, Zeitels expects Sam to make a full recovery from his laser microsurgery.”

The twenty-three-year-old, who just celebrated a birthday explained to his fans that he would not be able to speak for three weeks following the procedure.

In a post on Instagram, he wrote:

“Enjoying my last day of speaking. After today no speaking for three weeks. So if you see me on the streets sorry if you think I’m a d***head and can’t say hello. Also gonna be silent for my birthday. Sounds fun aye? (sic)”
