EWAN MCGREGOR JOINS 'AMERICAN PASTORAL'! MERYL STREEP IS MARIA CALLAS IN 'MASTER CLASS'! MARTIN SHEEN JOINS JANE FONDA, LILY TOMLIN IN NEW SITCOM! HILARIOUS 'WHAT WE DID ON OUR HOLIDAY' TRAILER WITH DAVID TENNANT, BILLY CONNOLLY, ROSAMUND PIKE!

EWAN MCGREGOR
JOINS 'AMERICAN PASTORAL'
Our dearest Ewan McGregor has a new gig: according to 'Coming Soon' he will take the lead role in AMERICAN PASTORAL and he will dye his hair blonde for the part. The movie adaptation of Philip Roth's bestselling novel will be directed by another Philip - Philip Noyce. Ewan will portray Seymour 'Swede' Levov, a blonde Jewish businessman living in Newark, New Jersey, whose ordinary life is disturbed by the chaos of the 1960s under the presidency of JFK's successor Lyndon B Johnson.

EWAN'S OTHER NEW ROLES
In next two years you will watch our dearest Scottish star in BORN TO BE KING next to Kate Hudson as an extra on a film set who shares a striking resemblance to a movie star. He will also play Australia's most notorious criminal in SON OF A GUN, and will spend LAST DAYS IN THE DESERT as a holy man and a demon - both roles played by McGregor - on a journey through the wasteland. He will then join Johnny Depp in MORTDECAI which follows an art dealer searching for a stolen painting that's reportedly linked to a lost bank account filled with Nazi gold.

MERYL STREEP IS
MARIA CALLAS IN 'MASTER CLASS'
Here's a lovely piece of TV news: Meryl Streep is returning to HBO after their brilliant cooperation on famous ANGELS IN AMERICA series. Mike Nichols, who helmed ANGELS, will now direct her again in MASTER CLASS, a mini series on famous opera singer Maria Callas. The project follows Callas in the 1970s as she takes charge of a number of lessons at Juilliard School in New York City. The singer then begins to reminisce about her career and personal life.
MARTIN SHEEN IS JANE FONDA'S GAY HUSBAND
Acting legends will be seen in new 13 episode sitcom at Netflix FRANKIE AND GRACE in which Martin Sheen has just joined the lead stars Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin. Coming from  FRIENDS co-creator Marta Kauffman, the comedy series follows two long-time rivals who are stunned when their husbands declare their love for each other. The women, much to their dismay, find that their lives are permanently intertwined and, much to their surprise, find they have each other. Sheen will play Fonda's husband.

HILARIOUS NEW TRAILER
 WHAT WE DID ON OUR HOLIDAY
Straight over from Great Britain comes the first rather hilarious trailer for new comedy WHAT WE DID ON OUR HOLIDAY starring DR. WHO's David Tennant, Rosamund Pike and acting legends Celia Imrie and Billy Connolly! To bring holiday memories (we'd rather forget) into cinemas this September, the story of the comedy revolves around a family of Doug (David Tennant), Abi (Rosamund Pike) and their three children when they travel to the Scottish Highlands for Doug's father Gordie's (Billy Connolly) birthday. As you can see in the trailer all kinds of hilarious things will strike the merry unsuspecting family on their trip! And it soon becomes clear that when it comes to keeping a secret under wraps from the rest of the family, their children are their biggest liability...

  3. I don't know if we've ever seen Ewan McGregor as a blond. And I like the sound of both Meryl Streep's latest as well as Frankie & Grace. Great cast for that last one. :)

    1. He was blondish in one of the movies, but I forgot which one... it was long time ago. FRANKIE AND GRACE will be a riot, methinks :)
