And the exciting business of following the casting process for STARZ' upcoming new epic series OUTLANDER officially starts! The first actor that could join the television adaptation of Diana Gabaldon's famous bestselling saga is Scottish actor Sam Heughan! He is apparently in negotiations to take the role of Jamie Fraser! The mix of history, fantasy, action, romance and adventure, OUTLANDER has been sold in more than 20 million copies so far and will be made into a TV show of 16 episodes! 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!

  DELIGHTFUL 'POPULAIRE'
 FRENCH COMEDY TRAILER
Here's something charming and uplifting - US trailer for delightful French comedy POPULAIRE which has played in most of the worldwide cinemas already but will hit US cinemas this summer. Rose Pamphyle (Déborah François), 21, is determined to break free from her stifling existence. Living with her widowed father and dreary husband, she seems destined to remain a bored housewife. That is, until she applies for a job at an insurance agency and the charismatic boss (Romain Duris) offers her a job. Despite making a terrible receptionist, she types exceptionally fast. Suddenly, Rose finds herself entering a typing contest and is thrust into a completely new world.

  1. I saw Gabaldon's tweet about Heughan after she saw his audition tape. She was impressed, to say the least. :))

    1. yep, I almost thought she would pee herself from excitement... not that it surprises me... we've seen Sam's naked pics :) He is quite a man of metamorphosis.... he was blonde, he was dark haired, he will be redhead, he played a king, a prince, now a warrior... he even had gay scenes and smooched naked with boys :) Quite a versatile man, isn't he?

  9. I'm not an Austen fan but this is a very funny trailer. All the cliches are there and it looks like a marvelous satire.

    Populaire has so much style to it. There's that classic 50's look that I find so appealing.

      They certainly enjoyed fashion back in the 50s and 60s :)

  11. Populaire looks really cute - although a speed typewriting competition sounds a little outdated in today's world!

  15. I am now catching up the posts I have missed. I will definitely watch Austenland. Seems like a very entertaining film. I'm a big fan of Romain Duris so I'll definitely be watching out of Populaire. :)
