Mary Anne Butler
Mary Anne Butler (Mab) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), Bleeding Cool (where she was News Editor), and now NerdBot as News Editor. Over the past 10 years, she’s built a reputation at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always). Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence. Though she be but little, she is fierce.

When we first read this recasting news about the currently halted production of “Mission: Impossible 7,” we had to reread it a few times. Nicholas Hoult (“X-Men,” “Mad Max: Fury Road,”) was set to the play the villain for M:I7, but that isn’t the case anymore.

Esai Morales, who once scuffled with security guards during a SAG AFTRA meeting (he was running for president of the organization at the time), will be taking over the reported villain role.

Of COURSE Morales has done a wealth of projects across his storied career, winning an Oscar for his portrayal of Bob Morales in the 1987 film “La Bamba.” He’s done numerous genre series, like “From Dusk Til Dawn: The Series,” “Titans” as Slade Wilson, “Mars,” and “Battlestar Galactica” prequel series “Caprica.” There’s his non-genre work too, like “Criminal Minds,” “Ozark,” and “How To Get Away With Murder.”

There isn’t a lot known about why this sudden casting shift, outlets are chalking it up to the current quarantine shutdown of the production in Italy, which has pushed Hoult’s schedule, and thus interfered with his next project.
