Now, about Johnny's hair... Scientists, at least in biological sciences, tend to be somewhat non-conventional, but I'm not sure if that holds for computer sciences. A part of me hopes that Johnny can keep his hair long, maybe in a ponytail. But I am thinking that there's about a 95% chance that he'll cut it for the part, and in fact I'm kind of expecting the axe to fall at any time Time will tell, I guess, but what do you all think- does Will (when not a computer program) have short hair?
Hmmm, in companies I've worked for, the tech guys were pretty much split between those who wore it very conservative short, and those who wore it very long, either in a pony tail, or the long, greasy "I only come out of my mother's basement playing video games to come in to work" kind of way.

House of Cards Star Kate Mara Joins Johnny Depp Epic Transcendence Kate Mara has had a pretty stellar 2013 so far, and she's only three months in: In addition to starring in Netflix's addictive series House of Cards, Vulture has learned that Mara just locked down a coveted, top-secret role in Transcendence, a sci-fi epic directed by Oscar-winning cinematographer Wally Pfister. Johnny Depp will star in the film as a brilliant scientist whose mind is uploaded into a computer, while Rebecca Hall and Paul Bettany co-star. (If you've been following the project, you may remember that Mara's sister Rooney was one of the finalists for the role that went to Hall.) Annie Marter, Marisa Polvino, and Kate Cohen will produce Transcendence along with David Valdes and Alcon Entertainment co-CEOs Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove; the big-budget project is due out April 25, 2014.
Thanks HG! I knew I knew who Kate Mara was, but forgot what I've seen her in, so I checked IMDb. Yikes, she played the psycho-bitch pregnant mistress in the first season of American Horror Story A lot of the fans put down her performance at first, but she kind of settled into the role. She was certainly good at being over the top! ;D By the way, I'm pretty sure she's Rooney Mara's sister (older, I think). (ETA- duh, the blurb already mentioned that )
Morgan Freeman Joins Wally Pfister's 'Transcendence' With Johnny Depp, Rebecca Hall, Kate Mara & Paul Bettany

Hey wait, shouldn't this be: Morgan Freeman joins Christopher Nolan's "Interstellar"? What gives? At any rate, Nolan is producing Wally Pfister's directorial debut, and it seems it's all about keeping it in the family.
The distinct voice and undeniable presence of Freeman will now be heard and felt in "Transcendence." Freeman joins Johnny Depp, Rebecca Hall, Kate Mara and Paul Bettany in the movie which of course is surrounded by secrecy. But we do know the Black List script by Jack Paglen (one of our Screenwriters On The Rise) revolves around an assassinated scientist who gets his brain uploaded to a computer.
There's nothing much else to add except that production begins next month in Los Angeles. And with "Interstellar" slated to shoot later, maybe Freeman will be able to do both. "Transcendence" will be achieved on April 25, 2014.
