MERYL STREEP WITH TOMMY LEE JONES IN "THE HOMESMAN" PERIOD FILM & IN "INTO THE WOODS" AS WITCH! NEW TRAILER FOR "DA VINCI'S DEMONS" EPIC SHOW! VANESSA LACHEY IN "DADS" SITCOM



  MERYL STREEP IN TWO NEW FILMS 
Now, here's an interesting cast: Meryl Streep will again work with Tommy Lee Jones after HOPE SPRINGS and they will also be joined by James Spader, John Lithgow and Tim Blake Nelson in new period set movie THE HOMESMAN! Directed and cowritten by Tommy Lee himself, the historical drama will, according to "The Hollywood Reporter", have a story set in 1855 Nebraska,and will revolve around a frontier woman and a claim jumper who ferry a wagonload of women, driven insane by the harsh world of the frontier, eastward to Iowa and back to the civilized world. Meryl Streep is also set to take the lead role in Rob Marshall's INTO THE WOODS in which she will play the Witch which conspires to teach important lessons to various characters of popular children's stories including Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk and Rapunzel.

  VANESSA LACHEY IN 'DADS' SITCOM 
  In television news today, Deadline writes that breathtaking Vanessa Lachey has joined Fox’s sitcom DADS which comes from Seth MacFarlane, and centres on two successful guys in their 30s, Eli (Seth Green) and Warner (Tommy Dewey), who have their lives turned upside down when their nightmare dads (Peter Riegert, Martin Mull) unexpectedly move in with them. Lachey will play Camilla, Warner’s wife, the mother of his kids. 

  NEW 'DA VINCI'S DEMONS' EXCITING EPIC TRAILER 
The only trailer I have for you in the slow Easter week is the new one for upcoming new historical adventure series DA VINCI'S DEMONS which hits small screens at Starz April12th! Titled "Some Mysteries Are Best Left Unsolved" the new trailer shows the mystery side of the show unlike the previous ones which focused on action, historical adventure, exciting sex and Da Vinci's inventions.  Starring deeply delightful Tom Riley, heavenly gorgeous Laura Haddock, dashingly amazing Elliott Cowan and profoundly magnetic Blake Ritson, the opening episode will see rising artisan Leonardo da Vinci being hired by the powerful Medicis to create an Easter spectacle in Florence. Da Vinci is commissioned to engineer war machines. A mysterious Turk captures Leonardo’s interest.

    1. that's a musical, based on some popular book staged before at Broadway methinks.

    2. so is it going to be a musical? Streep is awesome.

    3. Yep, it will be a musical. Streep was already great in MAMA MIA musical (even though the film itself was bad).

  3. Anything Merle does I'm in for - mind you, her last film with Tommy Lee was a bust - I forget the name of it (it was that forgettable) they were a married couple with "issues" going for therapy; I found it dull and slow.

    That being said...I love her! Oh, and I'm a huge Tommy Lee fan too!

  4. LOL. I lived in Nebraska for twelve years. I could have ended up on that wagon in The Homesman. :P

    1. Knowing you, you'd probably be leading the wagon riding on a horse with a gun in your hand :)
      I'm much more modest = I want what's under the coat :) You do remember, that Tom Riley reads HOLLYWOOD SPY and that he said our posts are deeply inspiring :) Such a dear gent! Lurv him so....

  6. I am glad to see Meryl still working; she is a wonderful actress and it's too bad there aren't more roles for women of her age. The DaVinci series looks interesting :)

  7. Meryl, Tommy Lee and John Lithgow in the same flick? What an amazing cast!!!!

  8. Go on Miss Meryl! That movie sounds worth a look just based on the cast! As for Dads...I might have to just say no. No.

    2. I just don't see it being my kinda show...I've been wrong before though!

    3. yep, mine neither probably, I prefer family sitcoms to male oriented ones.

  9. I guess it makes sense for her to be married to Warner. Seth Green certainly couldn't get a girl hot enough like Vanessa Lachey

  10. Come on, Dez get me some candy. LOL At least put up some male deliciousness sans clothes. My candy don't need wrappers. ;)
