"PLAYING FOR KEEPS" TRAILER WITH GERARD BUTLER, CATHERINE ZETA JONES, JESSICA BIEL! JONATHAN RHYS MEYERS IN "THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS"! RYAN REYNOLDS IN "THE QUEEN OF THE NIGHT"! "IVAN THE FOOL" ANIMATED FILM

A few days ago I reported that Irish thespian Jonathan Rhys Meyers is about to take the lead role in NBC's epic series DRACULA, and there are now news that he will take a role in the movie adaptation of fantasy saga THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS. In the story about a girl (to be played by MIRROR MIRROR's Lilly Collins) who finds out that she is the descendant of half-angel warriors called Shadowhunters and joins the battle against demons, Rhys Meyers will play Valentine Morgenstern, a powerful Shadowhunter looking to purify the world at any cost.
HOLLYWOOD SPY HEADLINES
Another hunk that my ladies like, Ryan Reynolds has added another less ambitious project to his future gigs: according to "Deadline" he will
 star in QUEEN OF THE NIGHT, as a dad whose daughter is abducted, and then years later he discovers a series of clues that leads him to believe the girl is still alive. The film will be directed by Atom Egoyan. Meanwhile, the Brits are preparing animated adaptation of Leo Tolstoy's story IVAN THE FOOL. Vanessa Redgrave, Edd Stoppard, Timothy Dalton and Michael Gambon will lend voices in the story about Ivan, the constant object of ridicule, bullied by all those around him. Though various twists of fate, Ivan, good natured and generous stumbles upon unexpected good fortune and those who once ridiculed him must now rely upon Ivan for their own success and survival. Stylishly animated film will tell the story of the triumph of virtue. 

PLAYING FOR KEEPS
 And here's the long awaited trailer for delightful romantic comedy PLAYING FOR KEEPS which will hit cinemas this December with a
 rather stellar cast lead by Gerard Butler and Catherine Zeta Jones. The Scottish star plays a former professional athlete with a weak past and an irresponsible, deadbeat dad who tries to redeem himself by coaching his son's soccer team, only to find himself unable to resist when in scoring position with his players' restless and gorgeous moms. The cast also includes Uma Thurman, Jessica Biel, Dennis Quaid... The estimated budget of the film was $35 million. You might wanna enjoy this one, because the rest of Gerard's future films are pure action and no romance.

  1. Don't slap me me Dezzy...but I think I'm digging Ryan right about now...I know you're a big fan of Gerard Butler but my goodness, nom nom nom, that poster is just too yummy!!! =PPP

    Sure, sure, the movie Butler is in is the just the type of movie I adore...but, those abs on Ryan...whew!! he he he

    Seriously though, the movie trailer for Playing For Keeps looks very, very good. Especially with him focusing on action flicks as of late. I love when actors have the ability to show different sides of their personality and can do it well.

      I have so many naked pics of Ryan that I sometimes feel a strange guilt when I take a non revealing pic of his in order to put it here, and I often go back to the sexy ones and post them :)

      he does look amazing with this wavy hairdo... I know ladies love us men either bald or with wavy hair :)

    7. Elsie I will always adore Bruce, but I think what I'll have to do is think about a threesome. I do love Bruce bald and when the Hubby went bald, he got sexier.

      Darling you know I always found Yule Brenner to be sexy as hell and Patrick Stewart-nom nom nom

  10. Oh but you've done well for your ladies today darling. Such nice beefcake today and for women of all kinds.

    JRM on the telly and in a movie-now that's a sandwich I'd like to be in the middle of.

    Gerard gets better looking as he ages I think. So much more character on that masculine face of his. He is the epitome of all things male.

    1. yep, I was catering for my ladies today :) And my boys can stare at those two girls in the banner above :)
      I think Gerry would know how to handle an Irishwoman, Annzie.

    2. I fit perfectly with Scotsman. My dear departed Bobby was a Scot and the Hubby is third generation Scot. These men have so much fire in them and they can handle my moods and my temper just fine.

  12. Well, I won't be seeing this one. As a rabid soccer hater (lol), I would probably sleep through it.

    The Dracula series does look promising. I wish I knew what the next fad was after zombies, vamps and werewolves.

    1. I can't stand soccer either, Jerry! But you can't possible sleep through a film with Zeta Jones :)

      Probably mutants, or possibly goblins :) I wish it was angels. Good angels.

  13. I don't think I'll be seeing any of these. I don't think my girlfriend likes any of them in particular.
