Craig is currently shooting scenes for his third outing as the suave superspy in Skyfall, which is due for release in 2014, and shows no signs of retiring from the role.

However, when he eventually moves on from the 007 franchise, Avatar actor Worthington - who was born in Britain but grew up in Australia - is hot favorite to take over the coveted part, followed by English actor Tom Hardy and Shame star Michael Fassbender.

Sam Worthington stars in the action-packed "Wrath of the Titans," which hits theaters today. He plays Perseus, who descends into the underworld on a mission to rescue Zeus (Liam Neeson) from the clutches of Hades (Ralph Fiennes), Ares (Edgar Ramirez), and Kronos.

We love this guy. Why? First, he admits he could have done better in the first film, "Clash of the Titans." He confessed to Empire magazine, "I wanted to do a second Titans film because I personally think I wasn't very good in the first one. I think I could've worked a lot harder on Clash." He's humble!

Liam Neeson & Ralph Fiennes Felt Silly Playing Gods

Liam Neeson struggled to keep a straight face while shooting the two Clash of the Titans movies with pal Ralph Fiennes - because the thespians felt ridiculous playing gods.

Neeson, who portrays Zeus in Clash of the Titans and sequel Wrath of the Titans, admits he had to focus on Fiennes' forehead during tense scenes between the warring brothers - to maintain his composure.

He explains, "When we did Clash of the Titans we found it hard to act with each other, so I would look at his forehead and he would look at my forehead because if we made eye contact it would go quite silly.

Avatar star Sam Worthington has been crowned the Fun Fearless Male of the Year by editors at Cosmopolitan magazine.

The Australian hunk was named the winner of the annual accolade at a star-studded bash in New York City on Monday.

Explaining their choice, Cosmo bosses state, "Just as Russell Crowe and Brad Pitt are getting a little too old to fulfill our hottie-action-hero fantasies, along comes 35-year-old Sam Worthington.

Spotlight: Liam Neeson - The Unexpected Movie Star

Liam Neeson in The Grey
This weekend, audiences will get the chance to see Liam Neeson fight a pack of hungry wolves in order to say alive in “The Grey” from director Joe Carnahan. Though he has become a worldwide action star with films like “Taken” and “Unknown,” 15 years ago the Irish-born former amateur boxer was better known for dramas like “Schindler’s List” and “Michael Collins.” That’s not to say he takes the craft of acting any less seriously now than he did back then. He is still as talented and charismatic as ever, only now he seems to be having a lot more fun.

So how did Neeson go from being a serious ...

Sam Worthington jumped at the chance to star in a Clash of the Titans sequel as he was convinced he "wasn't very good" in the first installment.

The Australian actor played mythical warrior hero Perseus in the 2010 movie, but admits he was less than impressed with his performance - and the criticism his buzzcut hairstyle attracted.

He tells Empire magazine, "I wanted to do a second Titans film because I personally think I wasn't very good in the first one. I think I could've worked a lot harder on Clash. So I wanted the opportunity to get a second bite at the apple, and it is rare to get ...

Aussie star Sam Worthington still can't believe the crazy things fans of his Avatar blockbuster will do to honor the film - Chinese officials have renamed a mountain range so devotees can get married in the fictitious alien world.

The film has become the most successful movie ever and Chinese fans have started dressing up as Na'vi warriors to wed among the Hallelujah Mountains, where Worthington and his co-star Zoe Saldana's all-blue characters fell in love.

Worthington says, "They renamed the mountains in China... People dress up, they're blue. The priest is blue as well."

Australian actor Sam Worthington has defended his recent weight gain, insisting his paunch is "healthy" and "human".

The Avatar star was photographed earlier this week on a beach in Hawaii sporting a fuller figure and the pictures were published with a headline containing the phrase "Clash of the Xmas puddings," a reference to his role in action movie Clash of the Titans.

However, Worthington is adamant he is proud of his bulging belly, as he "hates" working out at a gym and is happy to have normal body issues.

He tells, "Clash of the Xmas puddings, that's good. I like it....

The Danish star, who played villainous Le Chiffre in Casino Royale, has been feted by bosses at the European Film Academy for his "unique contribution to film" with the Achievement in World Cinema Award.

Actor Harry Hamlin had to sign up for criminal rehabilitation before Canadian officials would let him cross the border to shoot a recent movie after they discovered he had once been arrested for running an illegal brothel.

The "Clash of the Titans" star had forgotten about the scandal, which took place when he was a student at the University of California in Berkeley 40 years ago - but it almost cost him a job.

Hamlin, who owns property in Canada, admits the incident inspired him to write his new autobiography, Full Frontal Nudity. His arrest mug shot graces the back cover.

British actress Gemma Arterton's terror in new film The Disappearance Of Alice Creed was for real - her co-star Eddie Marsen has accidentally punched her in the face during one violent scene and she was afraid he'd make contact again.

The Clash of the Titans star plays a kidnapped millionaire's daughter in the film and spent much of the shoot bound to a bed, her character fearing her captors would kill her. But she didn't need to be told to look terrified in one scene - she was.

Arterton tells Nylon Guys magazine, "Eddie was sitting on top of me, fists flailing... and then Eddie punched...

James Cameron Slams 'Clash Of The Titans'

James Cameron
James Cameron is calling for movie bosses to put together a special organization to regulate the quality of 3D films - following the "stupid" decision to add effects to Clash Of The Titans.

The director embraced the technique when making his hugely successful sci-fi epic Avatar, and he's been championing 3D movies ever since. And he is convinced industry officials need to form a new organization to publicize and protect 3D films - because poor quality effects will harm the new genre.

Cameron says, "What I'd love to do is put together some kind of a forum with the DGA (Directors Guild of...

'Dragons' Barely Beats 'Kick-Ass' At Box Office

4/19/2010 9:43am EDT
How To Train Your Dragon
Animated hit "How To Train Your Dragon" has narrowly beaten action comedy "Kick-Ass" to the top of the box office chart, according to early studio estimates.

The family film scraped ahead with a weekend gross of $20 million on its fourth week on release, compared to "Kick-Ass'" opening takings of $19.8 million.

But it will be another close call for the second week running - the two movies could easily switch positions when exact ticket sales for Sunday are calculated on Monday.

Meanwhile, romantic comedy "Date Night" is at three this week with $17.3 million, while "Death at a Funeral" en...

"Clash Of The Titans" has won the battle of the box office a day after early studio estimates suggested comedy "Date Night" was America's top film.

Initial reports put Steve Carell and Tina Fey's comedy on top of the weekend movie chart - by an estimated $200,000, but official figures have the action epic ahead by $1.4 million.

Experts claim "Clash of the Titans" performed much better than anticipated on Sunday and took in $26.6 million to claim the box office top spot for a second successive week.

If I could make a recommendation about going to see “Clash of the Titans,” it would be not to see it in 3-D. While most viewing experiences are enhanced by of 3-D, its use in this film largely detracts from the product. Director Louis Leterrier’s closely pinned shots are unsteady and jarring to the viewer in 3-D, resulting in a headache inducing experience.

The art direction in “Clash of the Titans” is thorough, creating a vivid portrait of ancient Greece and the mythological figures that were part of everyday lore. Corny dialogue and cliché story weigh down this adventure film though. ...

Action remake "Clash Of The Titans" has conquered the competition at the box office, debuting at number one with $61.4 million in earnings at the weekend.

The blockbuster, starring Sam Worthington, Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes, has made a total of $64.1 million in the U.S. including preview screenings on Thursday night.

"Tyler Perry's Why Did I Get Married Too?" was runner-up with $30.2 million in ticket sales - marking a triumph for singer/actress Janet Jackson, who went to work on the comedy just a day after her brother, the late Michael Jackson, was laid to rest in June.

Sam Worthington Hated 'Titans' Owl

Avatar star Sam Worthington lost his cool on the set of Clash Of The Titans over a mechanical owl.

The Aussie actor came to despise Bubo, a replica of the heroic bird which featured in the original 1981 film, and threatened to destroy it when director Louis Leterrier wasn't looking.

The moviemaker tells Entertainment Weekly magazine, "Sam couldn't stand the owl. He wanted to destroy it. He kept threatening to drop it. He'd say, 'This is ridiculous! This is a ridiculous thing to have in the movie! You're going to ruin my career with that owl!'"

Bridget Marquardt's Getting Her Own Reality Show - And Too Much Sun

Bridget Marquardt
While Hef's former girlfriends Holly & Kendra show off their cleavage wherever they can, the third original "Girl Next Door," Bridget Marquardt, appeared at the "Clash of the Titans" premiere in Los Angeles yesterday looking rather low key; but also like she's been spending a little too much time out in the sun lately.

Where has she been? We have no idea, but where she needs to go is to her plastic surgeon for a few shots of botox under those eyes. Yuck.

It looks like she'll be following in Kendra's steps, though, with her own reality show. And a husband. And a baby.

'American Idol' Recap: Usher, Diddy, Ruben & Sam Worthington Bid Didi Farewell + Power Rankings

DiDi on American Idol
Even the Gods, it seems, couldn’t have saved Didi after that performance last week. And certainly not the judges.

“American Idol” is always a study in product placement synergy, but tonight it went a little over the top. It seemed the first half of the show was simply a commercial for “Clash of the Titans”. It seemed that way because that’s all it was. So much so that the producers decided to forego the group number. Maybe over-commercialization isn’t such a bad thing.

Last night was also the last night for Didi. Admittedly, Didi was so forgettable that I really don’t have a whole lo...

'Clash Of The Titans' Star Sam Worthington Is No Hero

Sam Worthington has carved out a new career as a Hollywood action hero. You might not recognize him in Avatar, the biggest movie of all time, because he was a blue alien for most of the movie. He looks more like himself in Terminator Salvation and this week’s Clash of the Titans, but don’t believe he’s the tough guy he plays in these movies.

“I believe a character should be part of yourself, so you bring it out of yourself so it lives in the fabric of your skin for a bit,” Worthington said. “I remember when I was doing the Terminator press, [journalists said], ‘Sam was an angry young man. ...

Is CGI Technology Enough Of A Reason To Remake 'Clash Of The Titans'?

3/31/2010 9:08am EDT
Clash of the Titans
As audiences get set for the update of "Clash of the Titans," many hardcore fans of the classic fantasy film are letting loose with that familiar cry of heresy. Sure, digital effects can look more "real" than the rubber and clay monsters created by legendary stop-motion animator Ray Harryhausen for the 1981 original, but better? "Better" is a subjective term.

Ask "Star Wars" geeks which Yoda they prefer. When Luke Skywalker landed on Dagobah in 1981's "The Empire Strikes Back," the Yoda he encountered was a foam and latex puppet, voiced and manipulated by Frank Oz. The "real" Jedi Master ...

He says, "That's kind of cool. Now I'm the Payless poster boy... All the tinsel of Tinseltown doesn't really bother me. In regards to my shoes, the ones they gave me made me look like a hobgoblin. If J. Lo stood in them, she would've fallen off the stage and ripped her dress....

Why Did I Get Married Too
I’m going to see “Clash of the Titans” this week but honestly I’m not terribly excited about the film. To me it seems like your run-of-the-mill epic action/fantasy with loads of computer generated effects and explosions. I have yet to see a preview that has made me think this movie has anything special to offer. The only things that have my attention are the amusing tagline “Damn the Gods,” and the presence of Sam Worthington, Liam Neeson, and Ralph Fiennes. As a critic though, I often approach films with the hope that they will prove my preexisting notions wrong, and “Clash of the Tita...
