Whilst filming “Jane Got a Gun” last year, Ewan also filmed a small cameo in the film on the next set – “A Million Ways to Die in the West”. His cameo is only about 5 seconds long, but I’ve managed to get some Blu-Ray screen captures to add to the gallery.

Hello! Ewan McGregor Online is back, and hoping to be better than ever. I know there are a few things we’re currently missing, but I’m aiming to get the site entirely back up to date in the next few days. To start with, I’ve just uploaded over 200 HQ images of Ewan from the LA premiere of “Mortdecai” which took place last week (Jan 22).

Ewan McGregor is set to be the cover star for Nylon Guys’ March issue, and you can now see the cover and accompanying shoot up in the gallery.

Ever since bursting onto the movie scene as the loveable heroin addict Mark Renton in the 1996 cult classic Trainspotting, Ewan McGregor has been one of Hollywood’s most skilled and reliable leading men. From single-handedly rescuing George Lucas’ Star Wars prequels by lending them a dignity and wit they sorely lacked, to documenting his motorcycle trip around the world in the docu-series Long Way Round, he’s able to mix raffish charm with heroic manliness like no other actor working today. He’s also maybe the only working actor who could credibly portray Jesus and Satan in the same film, as he just did at Sundance. In our latest issue, we accompany the 43-year-old actor, whose latest film Mortdecai hit theaters last week, to the International Motorcycle Show at the Javitz Center, where we look back on his incredibly wild ride.

On Trainspotting’s ridiculous Cannes after party: ““I don’t remember very much of the party, but it was apparently one of the great, legendary Cannes parties. Underworld played. It was fucking amazing. I missed their whole set. I was somewhere else doing something else.

On his pornstar moment with Woody Allen: “And suddenly there was a lull in the conversation. I looked over and there was a wee old lady standing next to what looked like a porn star—this girl with peroxided hair, massive tits, mini skirt, big plastic shoes. They were both stopped. They didn’t know if they should walk all over the equipment. I hear Woody saying, No,bring your daughter through. Bring your daughter through. We both had a little ogle at the girl as she went by. It clearly wasn’t the old lady’s daughter. Anyway, Woody turned to me and rubbed his hands together and went, Well, life could be worse.”

On his wild, late-‘90s London life with Jude Law and Angelina Jolie: “Jonny and Angelina were shooting Hackers, Jude had done Shopping. I’d done Shallow Grave. We were all kicking off. It was happening. We were having a right laugh. It’s the ’90s in London. It was quite fun… That’s all you’re getting.”

On a Trainspotting sequel: “He’s now a Glaswegian running a gym in Amsterdam,” McGregor says with a laugh, thrilled at the prospect. “I haven’t seen a script or anything. But it seemed to be quite real. I spoke to Danny [Boyle] about it. I met him randomly in a restaurant [last year] before he went up to Scotland to sit with our writer John Hodge and Andrew Macdonald, the producer.”

With Joaquin Phoenix dropping out of talks earlier this month, Marvel has resumed its search for someone to play Doctor Strange for director Scott Derrickson. According to Badass Digest, the company’s eye has fallen on Ewan McGregor, though nothing has been decided yet, so keep your giant neon rumour sign handy.

According to the site’s source, McGregor has been doing research (which in this case might just be code for “buying a lot of comics and calling it a business expense”) and the studio is looking at him for the role. It makes some sense: he’s a man used to big franchises (expect the part to come with the usual multi-film contract) and has convincingly played someone who uses powers on screen before, though those were Jedi-flavoured.

He’s not the only person in the mystical rumour-sphere for the character, however. Derrickson’s Sinister star Ethan Hawke was being talked about around the time Phoenix dropped out of the running and, more recently, there have been reports about Keanu Reeves possibly taking it on. Reports that he answered by saying, “Would I be good at that? Would I be right for the role?” Which is unhelpfully non-commital. Given that The Matrix set him up for life, we’re not sure how amenable he’d be to a multi-film contract with Marvel.

As for Strange, the character was originally conjured from the brains of Stan Lee and art genius Steve Ditko, and began life as a selfish New York surgeon (named Stephen Strange) who loses his professional skills in a car crash. After falling on hard times, he visits a healer in the Himalayas known as The Ancient One, and learns to tap into psychic and magical powers. In recognition of his selfless efforts to thwart evil fellow disciple Baron Mordo, he’s taught the mystical arts and sets out to defeat other shady sorcerers and various villains.

Jon Spaihts has written the most recent script and regardless of who ends up in the lead, Doctor Strange is set for a UK shoot followed by a July 8, 2016 release date.

Unwinding together after a day of rehearsal, the four stars of the new Broadway revival of The Real Thing — Ewan McGregor, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Cynthia Nixon and Josh Hamilton — gently tease each other, and the reporter visiting them.

Asked what experience he has drawn on for his character, McGregor declares, with mock indignation, “Is my wife cheating on me? That’s really what you’re asking, isn’t it?”

In the Tom Stoppard play, which begins previews Thursday, with an opening set for Oct. 30, we meet four people of the theater for whom life and art intersect painfully, hilariously and irrevocably. Annie, Charlotte and Max are actors; Henry, a playwright, is married to Charlotte at first, and Annie to Max. But affairs are in progress, both in Henry’s new drama — which casts Max and Charlotte as husband and wife — and in the real world, where Henry and Annie are carrying on.

Johnny Depp’s crime comedy “Mortdecai” will steal into theaters two weeks early, Lionsgate said Wednesday.

The story of a hapless art dealer entangled in larceny on a globe-trotting scale will debut on January 23 as opposed to its original release date of February 6. That sets it up against the Jennifer Lopez thriller “The Boy Next Door.” In its previous perch, “Mortdecai” would have gone toe to toe with the Wachowskis “Jupiter Ascending,” the fantasy adventure, “Seventh Son” and “The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water.” The film co-stars Gwyneth Paltrow and Ewan McGregor.

The studio seems high on the film and even hinted at the possibility for sequels on a February 2014 call with investors and analysts.

To make room for “Mortdecai,” Lionsgate will shift romantic drama “The Age of Adaline” from that January release date to April 24. The film stars Harrison Ford and Blake Lively and centers on a woman who has an accident that prevents her from aging. In its new slot, the film will face competition from Bill Murray’s “Rock the Kasbah” and will get a weekend before “The Avengers 2? debuts and rules the box office.

Obi-Wan Kenobi, from the “Star Wars” trilogy, will reportedly have his own spinoff movie although LucasFilm and Disney have yet to make this announcement official.

MakingStarWars.net claims Disney and LucasFilm are currently developing an Obi-Wan Kenobi spin-off movie. A source referred to the site as “Ewok Massacre” claimed he/she has “heard from quite a few people now that an Obi-Wan Kenobi movie is in the works.”

LucasFilm and Disney allegedly initially wanted to stay away from any Sith or Jedi characters for a spin-off movie. However, Obi-Wan Kenobi’s popularity had supposedly convinced an art team to start working with a writer in creating concepts for the character’s film.

Obi-Wan Kenobi was voted as the most popular “Star Wars” character according to the “This Is Madness: The Star Wars Character Tournament” posted by Star Wars on its official Web site. He beats other characters such as Darth Vader and Millennium Falcon’s pilots Han Solo and Chewbacca.

The character, portrayed by Ewan McGregor appeared in the “Star Wars” prequel trilogy according to Movieweb. If the spin-off movie is indeed true, the site claims it’s uncertain how long the production would be. Likewise, it’s still unconfirmed if Ewan McGregor will reprise his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi in the rumoured spin-off movie.

However, the actor is set to appear in Disney’s animated “Star Wars Rebels” series. There have also been previous rumours that Obi-Wan Kenobi will have a cameo appearance in J.J. Abrams “Star Wars: Episode VII” as “Force Ghost.”

Speculations have it that the character’s story may be focused on in either “Star Wars: Episode VIII” or “Star Wars: Episode IX.” Additionally, it may be for the other three spin-off films LucasFilm and Disney reportedly have in mind.

Regardless, MTV claims an Obi-Wan Kenobi spin-off movie should happen in the future. Rumours of the character’s appearance as “Force Ghost” in “Star Wars: Episode VII” reportedly marks his introduction to the spin-off. Additionally, “Star Wars Rebels” is set between “Revenge of the Sith” and “Star Wars: Episode IV: A New Hope.” “Rebels” might build up the plotline for the movie according to the site. Obi Wan could be headed for Tatooine which will reportedly be part of the locations in “Star Wars: Episode VII.”
