STUNNING NEW GREEK WARRIORS IMAGES FROM '300 RISE OF AN EMPIRE' WITH SULLIVAN STAPLETON, CALLAN MULVEY, RODRIGO SANTORO! DEBRA MESSING IN 'MYSTERIES OF LAURA' SERIES! NICK ZANO & ELISHA CUTHBERT IN 'ONE BIG HAPPY' SITCOM

DEBRA MESSING
TO LEAD THE CAST IN 'THE MYSTERIES OF LAURA' TV SERIES
Some time ago I've announced that NBC has bought the rights on popular Spanish comedy crime drama series THE MYSTERIES OF LAURA which they are now adapting into an American television version. They have now found the lead actress too: Debra Messing will take the role of Laura Diamond, a female homicide detective who can handle murderous criminals — but not her hell-raising twin children. The series will follow her life and relationships. The show will be set in New York and as you know Debra Messing already worked with NBC before being the star of their sitcom WILL AND GRACE.


ONE BIG HAPPY SITCOM
ELISHA CUTHBERT & NICK ZANO
In other television news, here's something from the comedy department: 'Deadline' reports that Elisha Cuthbert has joined Nick Zano in NBC's new sitcom ONE BIG HAPPY! Produced by Ellen DegGeneres,  the new comedy centres on two platonic friends since childhood — a lesbian, Lizzy (Cuthbert), and her straight male best friend, Luke (Zano) — who have been living together and trying to have a baby via artificial insemination for some time. They finally get pregnant — just as Luke meets and impulsively marries the love of his life.

300 RISE OF AN EMPIRE
NEW IMAGES OF THE WARRIORS OF ATHENS AND SPARTA
Your photo treat for this Monday are new images showing the valiant and courageous warriors of Sparta and Athens in upcoming epic sequel 300 RISE OF AN EMPIRE. Among the warriors in the original film we had Gerard Butler and Michael Fassbender who later on became superstars, will that happen again? Australian star Sullivan Stapleton is leading them this time as brave general Themistokles and he is also surrounded by Australian actors Callan Mulvey as Scyllias, David Wenham as Dillios and with Scottish actor Hans Matheson as Aesyklos alongside Jack O'Connell as Calysto. Opening in cinemas this March, the film starts after the fall of King Leonidas' 300, when the Persian Army under the command of Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro) marches towards the major Greek city-states. The Democratic city of Athens, first on the path of Xerxes' army, bases its strength on its fleet, led by admiral Themistokles. Themistokles is forced to an  unwilling alliance with the traditional rival of Athens, oligarchic Sparta whose might lies with its superior infantry troops. But Xerxes still reigns supreme in numbers over sea and land especially when his fleet is lead by vengeful general Arthemisia (Eva Green).

  1. The Mystery of Laura sounds really good. I love me a strong female character who can still get unraveled at the "regular" things in life.

  2. Hubby and I saw the trailer for Rise back a bit.My oldest son, who majored in art, did one of his senior paintings of a 300 character. I wonder if they'll be able to duplicate the success of the first film.

    1. I hope they will, the first one wasn't overly successful in US but it was around the world, so I'm hoping this one will be too. US audience tends not to like historical movies, because younger audience is usually intimidated by what they lack knowledge of :( POMPEII is currently flopping in US cinemas, sadly :(

    2. The Hubby really likes her and it is a shame that her other work hasn't been well received.

    3. I've heard, and it's no secret in Hollywood, that she is very difficult to work with... apparently she has a diva syndrome... but it doesn't have to be the truth. She was nice in WILL AND GRACE.
