There are several things that even movie magic won't help me buy: Charlie Hunnam as a learned doctor in Crimson Peak, Denise Richards as a nuclear physicist named Christmas Jones in that Bond movie, and Nicole Kidman as Jason Momoa's mom. Nevertheless, all three of these things are real and I'm not buying any of them even a little. However, if a casting notice posted on some strange website is to be believed, the redheaded Aussie will indeed be playing the birth mother of swarthy actor Jason Momoa.
According to the website Acting Auditions, the rumored casting of Kidman as Aquaman's mother is indeed legit as she is listed as part of the cast...
“Aquaman” will center on Aquaman as a reluctant ruler of the underwater kingdom of Atlantis who is caught between land dwellers that are always polluting the globe and his own people who are ready to invade the surface. Screen Actors Guild Award nominee Jason Momoa will play Aquaman. Also starring is Academy Award winner Nicole Kidman as Atlanna, Hollywood Film Awards winner Amber Heard as Mera, two-time Academy Award nominee Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko, two-time Golden Globe Award nominee Patrick Wilson as Orm/Ocean Master, New Zealand Film and TV Awards winner Temuera Morrison as Thomas Curry, and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta.
Wait, wait, wait, I'm sorry. Amber Heard won what now? A Hollywood Film Award? What the fuck is that? Is that like the Cleveland Rock and Roll Award? They could have just said "2-time Johnny Depp domestic abuse accuser Amber Heard," and we wouldn't have chuckled as much.
