JAI COURTNEY IN "DIVERGENT"! HEATHER LIND, JAMIE BELL IN "TURN" EPIC SHOW! ROBERT BUCKLEY IN "HOLDING PATTERNS" SITCOM! KRISTIN DAVIS IN "BAD TEACHER" SITCOM

And it is interesting that  only a few days after Maggie Q joined the movie adaptation of fantasy saga DIVERGENT, we have another casting info: charismatic Jai Courtney, who started his career as brave gladiator in
SPARTACUS epic show and went over to Hollywood to play Bruce Willis' son in GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD, has joined the cast too. Based on the Veronica Roth novel the film will depict a futuristic America that is divided into five factions: selflessness (Abnegation), peacefulness (Amity), honesty (Candor), bravery (Dauntless), and intelligence (Erudite). Each citizen must choose which trait they want to devote the rest of their lives to, at the age of 16. Jai Courtney will play the leader of the Dauntless tribe Eric, who serves as one of the primary antagonists for Shailene Woodley's Beatrice "Tris" Prior, who struggles with the Dauntless initiation when she makes a powerful discovery about her hidden strength.

HEATHER LIND IN "TURN" HISTORICAL SHOW 
Yet, another of the upcoming historical shows we are anticipating - TURN has a new cast member. Young Heather Lind will join Jamie Bell in the story set in the summer of 1778 which tells the story of New York farmer Abe Woodhull (Jamie Bell), who bands together with a group of childhood friends to form The Culper Ring, an unlikely group of spies who turn the tide in America’s fight for independence. Heather, whom you might have seen in BOARDWALK EMPIRE before, will play Anna Strong, the beautiful wife of the local tavern owner who is Abe’s first love, and clearly there is still a tension between the two.

ROBERT BUCKLEY IN "HOLDING PATTERNS" SITCOM 
One of HOLLYWOOD SPY's favourite faces to stare at - Robert Buckley (who was brilliant in LIPSTICK JUNGLE and GOSSIP GIRL and most recently in 666 PARK AVE) has scored a role in a new sitcom. "Deadline" reports  that HOLDING PATTERNS will be an ensemble multi camera comedy about a group of friends whose lives completely change after they survive a plane crash. Robert Buckley will play one of them, Chad, Griffin’s (Humphrey Ker) and Leah’s (Chyler Leight) arrogant, misogynistic friend, now a successful chick-lit author who returns home for the wedding.

  KRISTIN DAVIS IS BAD TEACHER
Meanwhile always delightful and lovely Kristin Davis, whom we all remember as elegant and kind Charlotte from SEX AND THE CITY, is coming back to comedy shows. She just landed a role in the television adaptation of BAD TEACHER, Cameron Diaz movie from a few years ago.  The sitcom centres on hot, confident, unapologetic former trophy wife Meredith Davis (Ari Graynor), who becomes a teacher to find a new man after her husband leaves her without a dime. Davis will play Ginny, a history teacher, choir director, Faculty President and Meredith’s nemesis.

  2. I'm reading Divergent right now and Jai looks very much like Eric as I picture him. And I concur; Robert Buckley has a face one could get used to having around ;)

  8. Divergent sounds like Hunger Games, yawn...Jai Courtney is HOT though. I seriously hope Shailene is NOT his love interest. She's too young and looks anemic. I frankly do not understand the attention she's getting as she is a terrible actress.

    1. I agree, I don't seen anything special in her either, while Jai is so very special :) It's been a very poor period in movie news and I have nothing else to write about :(
