CATE BLANCHETT IS "CANCER VIXEN"! LOUISE LOMBARD IS QUEEN IN SF SHOW "SELECTION"! TORRANCE COOMBS IN "REIGN" EPIC SHOW! LYNN COLLINS, JOSH LUCAS IN "OCCULT" TV SHOW

The best actress that has ever lived, Cate Blanchett, who is currently preparing to star in George Clooney's THE MONUMENTS MEN
a film about a team of experts who tried to save art pieces from Hitler's Nazis in World War II, has got herself a new role: "Deadline" reports that she will star and produce the movie adaptation of Marisa Acocella Marchetto's bestselling book CANCER VIXEN. The protagonist in the story is a cartoonist for magazines like "The New Yorker" and "Glamour" with a supercharged Manhattan lifestyle who is about to get married but must re-examine her life through wit and her animation when she is diagnosed with breast cancer. Before she does this one, Blanchett will probably have to shoot Kenneth Bragnah's CINDERELLA in which she is playing the evil stepmother!

LOUISE LOMBARD IS QUEEN IN "SELECTION" 
In television news, beautiful blonde Louise Lombard (STARGATE UNIVERSE, HOUSE OF ELLIOTT) has scored the royal role in CW's upcoming science fiction pilot THE SELECTION an epic romance 
centring on America Singer (Yael Grobglas), a working class young woman chosen by lottery to participate in a competition with 25 other women for the Royal Prince’s (Michael Malarkey) hand to become the nation’s next queen. "Deadline" reports that Lombard will play the current queen, Queen Amberly. Refined, intelligent and beloved by the people, Queen Amberly is a canny political player within the palace, and knows everything there is to know about every single girl in The Selection competition. The King is played by MERLIN's Anthony Head!

  TORRANCE COOMBS IN "REIGN" EPIC SHOW
And another of our most anticipated upcoming historical shows has landed a new cast member! CW's epic series REIGN, which chronicles
 the rise to power of Mary Queen of Scots (Adelaide Kane) when she arrives in France as a 15-year-old, betrothed to Prince Francis (Toby Regbo), and with her best friends as ladies in waiting, has added handsome Torrance Coombs to the cast! He will play Sebastian, Francis’ resourceful illegitimate half brother, a favorite son of King Henry II and his most favored mistress, Diane de Poitiers. He offers Mary some sage advice! It is also interesting that one of Mary's ladies in waiting will be portrayed by Anna Popplewell, the little girl from NARNIA saga! She will play Mary's lady Lola!

  LYNN COLLINS & JOSH LUCAS IN "OCCULT" TV SHOW
Interesting casting can be seen in A&E's new supernatural drama OCCULT! Two movie stars, Josh Lucas and breathtaking Lynn 
Collins (you remember her as divine Princess Dejah Toris from JOHN CARTER sf blockbuster),  have joined the show described as similar to X-FILES and FRINGE. According to "Deadline" the story centres on Dolan (Josh Lucas), an FBI agent who returns from administrative leave after going off the deep end while investigating his wife’s disappearance. Eager to be back on the job, he is paired with Noa Blair (Lynn Collins), an agent with her own complicated backstory who specializes in the occult. Together, they will solve cases for the newly formed occult crimes task force!

    Oooh lala Lynn is looking quite sexy there. The boys will be eating that up.

    Oh yes, Kate as the wicked stepmother. I can't picture it, but it should be interesting.

  7. Cate Blanchett really does shine in every movie she's in.

    Sorry to hear you have to put up with uncomfortable bandages. The intergalactic Imperial Pash...what did you call yourself?...should have minions to do the suffering for him. Feel better soon. ((hugs)).

  11. I actually said, 'Holy crap' out loud when I saw that picture of Noa-Blair-Lynn-Collins-What's-her-name. Could you put in a good word for me, Dezz, and ask her to adopt me? Yep, Cate is a great actress, but... is she the best?

  13. I am so happy you are back among us and out of that dreadful clinic. I worry about you sweetie. Hugs :)

    Yay for Cate. I love her and adore most everything she has done. I am really tired of hearing about The Selection. It sounds like such a boring show.

    1. I'm anxious to see SELECTION to judge whether it will be a sf epic, which we want, or just a superficial teen soap.

      They took out my drainage tubes today so I'm feeling a bitsy better, but still quite zombified :)

GIVE SOME LOVE TO YOUR DEZZY :)
