PENELOPE CRUZ NEW BOND GIRL? STARZ ORDERS "OUTLANDER" EPIC SHOW! NEW TRAILER FOR "REIGN" EPIC SHOW ON MARY QUEEN OF SCOTS! IAN SOMERHALDER IN "ANOMALY" SF FILM


  PENELOPE CRUZ IS
 THE OLDEST EVER JAMES BOND GIRL
One of the hottest pieces of news at the beginning of this week was an info on Penelope Cruz taking a Bond girl role in the next JAMES BOND movie which will most probably again be directed by Sam Mendes who scored huge success with SKYFALL. It's interesting that Penelope is married to and has recently had a baby with Javier Bardem who played the villain in SKYFALL. The 24th film on agent 007 should start shooting next year which will give Penelope enough time to get in shape after her pregnancy. If she signs the contract she will be the oldest Bond girl in history being 40 years old. Pussy Gallore was the oldest so far with her 39 years of age.


  IAN SOMER- HALDER 
IN 'ANOMALY' SF FILM 
Digital Spy reports that ladies' favourite TV hunk Ian Somerhalder from VAMPIRE DIARIES has taken a role in science fiction movie ANOMALY! Written by Noel Clarke (STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS), who will also star  in the film and direct it, the movie will revolve around a traumatised ex-soldier (Hemsworth) who wakes up in a van to find that he has only nine minutes and 37 seconds of consciousness to work out how he got there. The soldier will be played by Luke Hemsworth, the oldest brother of Chris and Liam, who is best known for his work in NEIGHBOURS soap.

  STARZ OFFICIALLY ORDERS
'OUTLANDER' EPIC SERIES 
Good news people, we're getting a new epic show! Starz has officially ordered 16 episodes of OUTLANDER! Produced by BATTLESTAR GALACTICA's Ronald Moore, the show will be a television adaptation of Diana Gabaldon's seven book saga.  Sold in over 20 million copies around the world, the fantasy saga follows British Army nurse Claire Randall as she is transported back in time from 1945 to 18th century Scotland, embarking on an epic romance with Scots warrior Jamie! The production begins this October in Scotland which means we can expect casting news in upcoming months!

  NEW TRAILER FOR
 FOR CW'S 'REIGN' EPIC SHOW
You can also check out the new, long, trailer for CW's new historical show REIGN which will hit the small screens this Autumn on Thursdays. The trailer is confusing since the show looks extremely cheap at some moments and then luxurious and rich in others, with costumes that look mostly bad and with strange casting choices (the lead actress Adelaide Kane looks too modern teeny for this kind of genre), but we shall give it a benefit of the doubt. As you can read in HOLLYWOOD SPY's extensive spotlight on the show, the story will follow the teen days of Mary Queen of Scots when she arrives to French court where she falls into the world of intrigues surrounding the king, the queen (Megan Follows), the lords and their mistresses, and two young princes Francis ( Toby Regbo) and Sebastian (Torrance Coombs)!

    1. LOL Daniel Craig has two more Bond films according to his contract, and after that they might switch him too :)

    2. I don't mind I like Craig as bond. Skyfall was just excellent and return to the charm of the older films.

  4. I'm excited for the Outlander series, yet sort of dreading it too. I enjoy the books so much -- at least the version in my head. If they get the casting wrong it will be very painful to watch.

    1. I can imagine. I hear most fans want Kate Winslet for the lead role, but I can't imagine her accepting a TV role. She did MILDRED PIERCE but this is a very long series.

  5. No problem with Cruz, she's a good actress.

  6. A Bond girl who can act... I can't take such a breath of fresh air. Hold me! Not to mention the fact that she's quite a woman. That shorty-what's-his-name should've had his brain checked.

    1. P.S. Do the honors... be #100....

    2. Who says she can act? :) She is pretty, but mostly whimpy in her acting. I'm not a fan, myself. I prefer Salmonela Hayek.

      Delete
    3. I prefer them together... Like in that cowchick flick... Just keep the salmonela if you don't mind.

    4. they're actually best friends in real life :)

    5. One obstacle down. Two hundred more to go.

    6. taking Javier Bardem down would be the next obstacle :)

    7. That's why I've asked you to come. Pun intended. ;)

    1. I'd call her young. I wonder why that is.

      Delete
    2. I myself think that people are young till they're 50 and then between 50 and 70 they're mature people, and only after 70 or closer to 80 they're old :)

      Delete
    3. I'm afraid I'll never be mature, Dezz. I just hope that doesn't mean I'll kick the bucket before I turn 50.....

      Delete
    4. For someone who just turned fifty, I find this exchange utterly depressing. :P

      Delete
    5. DANG, I'm hitting mature zone according to Dez this year. I suppose I can put all those cougar fantasies to rest.

      Delete
    6. @Blue
      yep, you probably never will be :P

      @Luanne
      imagine me a month ago when I turned 35 and read that official medical field considers you young only under 35 :((((

      Delete
    7. @Debs
      Why? Sweet sisters, cougar years start with age 50 :) You can now officially chase tomcats younger than 30 :)

      Delete
    8. Hahaha I thought a cougar started at 40 and was washed up by 50.

      Delete
    9. those are ancient standards, these are new Dezzy standards :) You have the official permission to play the market :)

  8. Lots of good stuff here though I must admit my heart went pitter pat when I saw Ian Somerhalder.

    1. I'm hoping the pic I've chosen had something to do with it :)

  9. I've never thought of Penelope Cruz as old. She's younger than me. So what does that mean - I'm old? ;)

  10. I don't find Penelope Cruz all that attractive. I guess I'm one of the few?

    1. I'm among those few too, Damien

    2. I've her asked to pay you a visit, Damian. Consider it a second opinion.... :D

      Delete
    3. isn't he Damien and not Damian? That is the question :)

      Delete
    4. I call him Damian. Grumpy Damian. Just like in that movie. Or was he Damien? Wait.. I'm not disklexick...

      Delete
    5. I called him Damian too, but then realized that he was actually Damien :)

  11. Penelope Cruz seems like too obvious a choice for a bond girl... if that makes sense.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. agreed. For some reason they always chose the same type - brown haired, simple face, dark eyes.... maybe because they don't want those girls to overshadow Bond or they want Judi Dench to remain the prettiest lass in the film :)

      Delete
    2. Good point, Lynda. I don't even want 'my' Bond girls to be anyone famous. I've got a hard time believing James is Bond, so when I see Penelope, I'll keep saying to myself, 'That's Penelope.' Before you know it, I'll want my money back. Do you know what I mean?

      Delete
    3. and that is why your fave Bond girl was Isabela Scorupco, yes? :)

      Delete
  12. Cruz's baby is going to have an awesome accent.

  13. Ooh! I just saw Noel somewhere...Into Darkness? I think that's it. I can't wait to see Ian on the big screen. Oomph, those eyes. :)
