JOSEPH FIENNES IN 'NOSTRADAMUS' HISTORICAL TV SERIES! SANDRA BULLOCK IN TUPPERWARE MOVIE! JUNE DIANE RAPHALE JOINS JANE FONDA, LILY TOMLIN, MARTIN SHEEN IN 'GRACE AND FRANKIE' SITCOM

SANDRA BULLOCK
IS THE QUEEN OF TUPPER- WARE MARKETING IN A NEW MOVIE
If you're wondering what's Sandra Bullock been up to, she is heading towards kitchen: she will star in the big screen adaptation of Bob Kealing's book TUPPERWARE UNSEALED as the expert who launched Tupperware through famous parties that made the storage product a household name and into the multibillion company it still is today. 'Deadline' reports that Tate Taylor (The Help, Get On Up) will adapt, produce and direct this fun story about a divorcee from Detroit who convinced a plastics inventor to let her go crazy marketing a good product which, up until then, was getting little attention from consumers. The story will focus on her start and the clashes that she had with the company founder Tupper that led to her leaving the company (she left when he sold the company for $15 million, offering her only $35,000 as compensation).

TELEVISION HEADLINES
JOSEPH FIENNES TOPLINES 'NOSTRADAMUS' EPIC TV SERIES
And in TV news today it seems that Joseph Fiennes will again go psychic after miserably failing with his neurotic depiction of Merlin in CAMELOT. He will play the lead role in new television series on famous NOSTRADAMUS! Carnival Films, who are behind DOWNTON ABBEY, are making the historical series about the seer in 16th century France who became world renowned for his self professed ability to predict the future. With story set against the world of the French Royal Court, NOSTRADAMUS will be a complex, brooding character with immense appetites, a charismatic and self destructive man who is plagued with dangerous and disturbing visions and who seeks vengeance for the murder of his family. As you know you can also see the famous clairvoyant in CW's REIGN historical show.

JUNE DIANE RAPHAEL JOINS JANE FONDA & LILY TOMLIN IN 'GRACE & FRANKIE' SITCOM
Over at Netflix, June Diane Raphael has joined the cast of hilarious new sitcom GRACE AND FRANKIE which will see Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin playing long-time rivals who form a bond when their husbands declare their love for each other. In the Marta Kauffman (FRIENDS) created comedy series Martin Sheen and Sam Waterston will play the newly gay husbands, while Raphael has been cast as the daughter of Grace (Fonda) and Robert (Sheen), who has always rebelled against Grace's insistence on keeping up appearances, but finds that her own bluntness serves her well when she takes over her mother's beauty line.

  1. TUPPERWARE UNSEALED sounds interesting. Never really thought about where it got it starts, but the products do come in handy.

    1. it is quite an interesting business story since he turned his back on her after she made his products famous and his company extra rich.

  2. "Gracie and Frankie" sounds FAB! I love all the principal actors! And if it's on Netflicks, it might be much raunchier (and therefore funnier) than it would be on cable TV -- here's hoping, anyway.

    1. And I love the revival of senior actors in films and on TV screens! Bill Cosby is also returning to the small screens next year, and Ian McKellen and Derek Jacobi have their VICIOUS sitcom ordered for second season

    2. "Vicious" makes me laugh so hard I pee. Glad it's been renewed!

    3. yep, it's getting a second season :)

  3. LOL. I read the second headline as "Josephe Fiennes Topless Nostradamus". Which might be okay. :P

    1. she does use tones of botox and can hardly move parts of her face now... not as bad and horrid as Courtney Cox or Nicole Kidman, but close

  7. Grace and Frankie sounds fabulous!! I think this is going to be a really good one and Lilly Tomlin is a genius at comedy. Also the whole cast is made up of heavy hitters. There's lots of room for hilarity in this one.

    Sorry for my tirade earlier dahlink. We've been without water for five days and my feckin' plumber didn't come back to finish the job. A tiny little doo hiky thingy right by the main broke on Thursday. He claims he has the part and will be here tomorrow. My flowers need water desperately and I stink to high heaven.

    1. I really hope they have good scripts, dear, because we need a mature old style sitcom! My faves are LAST MAN STANDING and BABY DADDY, and I'm currently also enjoying YOUNG AND HUNGRY and GUYS WITH KIDS.

      Shite, dahlink, that's horrible! We have a city here which has been without water for five days now and I can imagine the hell. Will you be able to fix all the plumbing in your house before winter to avoid last year's problems?

      Delete
    2. We had the entire house re plumbed. What broke is some small metal piece. Also our hot water heater has broken and needs replaced.

      This guy is a good plumber and his prices are good, he's just so busy it takes him a long time to get to us. He owns his own business and has no workers. He does it all himself which is how he keeps prices down. Supposed to be here today. Fingers and toes crossed.

    3. Water heaters are expensive here :( Maybe you can buy a small one for just the two of you? Or do you have one for the whole house? In my country we have small ones in bathrooms and kitchens.

      Hope you fix it, dear. That and the problem with the heating of the house in winter. Maybe some electric heater which the two of you could use in two rooms when the cold comes

  11. My gosh, Sandra Bullock looks amazing in that pic! She is just one of my all time favorite actresses. Yes, she was great in Crash, but I just loved her in The Blind Side. I can't wait for her new movie!

    2. I still haven't seen Gravity. Waiting for it to become available on 3D on my ondemand service. I think I heard that it was a good one to watch in 3D.

    1. Actually, she started using a lot of botox and I don't think that was the right decision for her. But her body is still lovely
