Bono's actress daughter Eve Hewson is heading to the small screen after landing a role in Steven Soderbergh's upcoming TV series The Knick. The This Must Be The Place star, 22, has been cast alongside Clive Owen in the 10-part show, which is based in 1900s New York and will centre around groundbreaking surgeons and staff at Knickerbocker Hospital during a period of high mortality rates and a lack of antibiotics.
Kristen Stewart's ex-boyfriend Michael Angarano has also joined the line-up, which includes Andre Holland and Sinister's Juliet Rylance, according to Deadline.com.
Production on the programme, which will air on America's Cinemax cable network, is due to begin in late September (13).
Dennis Quaid and Meg Ryan's actor son is teaming up with Irish rocker Bono's daughter to make an independent movie. The Hunger Games star Jack Quaid and actress Eve Hewson are asking fans to help them fund new film #Roadies by making donations via their page on the crowdsourcing website Indiegogo.com.
The filmmakers behind the project have set a goal of $7,000 (£4,500) to cover costs on the upcoming road-trip shoot across Los Angeles, Arizona, Texas, and New Mexico.
The cast and crew have agreed to work for free, and Quaid and Hewson are offering prizes such as personal tweets, autographed photos, DVDs and thank-you cards as rewards for those who donate.
A message on the Indiegogo page for #Roadies states, "We are the new generation of filmmakers. We are young. We are passionate. And we are ready to make a difference in the world of cinema."
Bono and Denzel Washington brought some superstar glamour to graduation day in New York on Wednesday (22May13) as the celebrated their daughters' academic achievements. The pair was in attendance at Yankee Stadium for the New York University's graduation ceremony, and watched proudly as their girls graduated.
The U2 rocker's 21-year-old actress daughter Eve Hewson picked her diploma, as did Olivia Washington.
Bono had been offered an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters degree by university bosses, but decided to turn down the honour so he could concentrate on cheering on his daughter's achievements.
Washington had double the reason to feel proud - he attended his son Malcolm's graduation from the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia last week (13May13).
Malcolm excelled at the Ivy League school, playing basketball and earning a degree in film studies.
U2 rocker Bono has turned down the chance to receive an honorary degree during his daughter's graduation ceremony in New York next week (begs20May13). The Irish frontman's 21-year-old daughter Eve Hewson will receive her degree from New York University on 22 May (13), and college chiefs offered her famous father a honorary Doctor of Humane Letters degree on the same day.
However, the musician has decided against accepting the honour so he can concentrate on cheering on his daughter's achievements.
A representative for Bono tells New York Post gossip column Page Six, "Bono was hugely honoured to be asked by NYU to receive the honorary degree of Doctor of Humane Letters. Given his daughter is part of the graduating class, they discussed the invitation as a family and decided they wanted to keep the day a quiet one for the family in which Bono could simply be a very proud father."
"The last time I had a conscious growing-up feeling was probably when I started growing boobs. It's a devastating moment. I always wanted to be a boy when I was younger - I dressed as a boy, I cut my hair off. But then I grew up and people couldn't mistake me for a boy anymore." Rocker Bono's actress daughter Eve Hewson was devastated when she hit puberty.
"My school is very strict. If you miss more than two classes they dock your grades. So if you have to leave for an audition it's not good news." Bono's actress daughter Eve Hewson on juggling her studies at New York University with her career.
The Oscar-winning actor reached the milestone in August 2010 while he was filming This Must Be The Place, alongside Bono's daughter Eve Hewson, in the Irish capital.
He left his birthday celebrations in the hands of the U2 rocker, who organised a bash with guests including the actor's children and country legend Kris Kristofferson - and Penn was delighted with the party.
The star tells Britain's Telegraph magazine, "He (Bono) takes us to lunch, then on a literary walking tour, then up the stairs of some famous pub - and there waiting are (folk band) the Dubliners. They play for five hours, my son sits in on guitar, we drink Guinness...
"And he didn't just sing me Happy Birthday. He sang me (Me and) Bobby McGee (by Kristofferson)."
The Oscar-winning actor reaches the milestone on Tuesday (17Aug10) but he broke out the champagne early for a boozy bash in Dublin, Ireland.
He is currently in the Irish capital filming This Must Be The Place alongside Bono's daughter Eve Hewson, but he took time out on Saturday (14Aug10) to party with the U2 star, his own son Hopper and daughter Dylan, and country legend Kris Kristofferson.
The group gathered at the Samsara Bar for a special party organised by Bono before heading to the nearby O'Donohue's pub, where the rocker and the birthday boy enjoyed a singsong late into the night.
On Sunday (15Aug10), Penn joined Bono for lunch at celebrity chef Marco Pierre White's Steakhouse and Grill - but Penn was clearly feeling the effects of the night before, leaving the eaterie after just two hours while Bono continued to party into the early evening.
U2 singer Bono is a father again. Bono's wife Ali gave birth Monday morning to a baby boy. The child is the couple's fourth, following two daughters, Jordan, 11, and Eve, 9, and son Elijah, 21 months old, Reuters reported. The boy, who is not yet named, weighed 7 pounds, 7 ounces at birth. Bono, named Paul Hewson at birth, left U2's North American tour to be with his family, and expects to rejoin the tour Thursday.
