JOSEPH FIENNES & TOM FELTON BACK INTO 1ST CENTURY IN 'CLAVIUS' EPIC THRILLER! JOHN STAMOS AS A KNIGHT IN ABC'S 'GALAVANT' HISTORICAL MUSICAL COMEDY TV SERIES

1ST CENTURY EPIC 'CLAVIUS'
 JOSEPH FIENNES & TOM FELTON
While you are watching him currently in Dwayne Johnson's HERCULES and while we are looking forward to watching him as NOSTRADAMUS in the new historical TV series, it seems that Joseph Fiennes will remain in a period costume since, according to 'Deadline', he has accepted a role in the first century epic thriller CLAVIUS from director Kevin Reynolds which will also star Tom Felton. To be released next Easter, CLAVIUS will follow an agnostic Roman Centurion (Joseph Fiennes) charged by Pontius Pilate to investigate rumours of a risen Messiah and locate the missing body of Jesus of Nazareth in order to subdue an uprising in Jerusalem. Along the Centurion’s high-stakes mission, his doubts of such a supernatural occurrence are challenged as he encounters the Apostles and other historical characters while piecing together the mysterious events that unfolded after the crucifixion.

JOHN STAMOS JOINS ABC'S
'GALAVANT' HISTORICAL TV SERIES
In another piece of news from the epic genre today, John Stamos will guest star in ABC's upcoming historical musical comedy TV series GALAVANT in which Joshua Sasse  portrays a knight who is seeking to regain his sterling reputation and his lost love from the villainous King Richard (Timothy Omundson). With the hope for a reoccurring appearance, Stamos will guest star in an episode playing a dashing rival knight who squares off against GALAVANT in a local joust. Coming from TANGLED's Dan Fogelman, the series will air in 2015 midseason while ONCE UPON A TIME goes on a break.

    1. Should be fun if they don't make it overly dark and morbid

  2. Historical musical comedy starring John Stamos? That has "canceled" written all over it!

    1. not neccesarily. It could be a hit or miss, depending on the humour. It is something fresh for sure and ABC audience tends to love fantasy tales

  4. It will be nice to see John Stamos in something new again. I have only seen him on the Full House re-runs my daughter likes to play every night for the past few years, so anything other than Uncle Jesse will probably grab my attention.

    1. We do love those old sitcoms from FULL HOUSE and BLOSSOM to COSBY SHOW, GOLDEN GIRLS and my fave HOME IMPROVEMENT

    2. Yes, we do. That was when television didn't need to push the shock factor to get us to watch. It was just good, wholesome family tv that we could all sit down and enjoy together. What the hell happened to that!?

    3. that is why I still like to surround myself with sitcoms such as BABY DADDY, LAST MAN STANDING, YOUNG AND HUNGRY... they're innocent, but yet modern and delightful fun. I think BABY DADDY is my biggest TV crush ever since FRIENDS

  5. I hope Tom's role is different from his Draco character that carried over into the Planet of the Apes installment he did. He's a better actor than the latter portrayed.

  6. I'm with Stephanie and doubting the success of a historical musical. But...leave out the musical part and I'm in!

  7. John Stamos as a knight, now that should be interesting. Galavant looks like it will be a riot.

  8. As long as John Stamos doesn't break out the drums and start singing Beach Boys songs, I'm good.

  9. John Stamos has always had an ear for music.

  10. Ooooo I like the look of Galavant! Singing and comedy has worked well before-Monty Pythons Holy Grail was rather a LARGE success. I hope this is a hit and sticks around.

    1. This does remind me a bit of Python... although I didn't like that one ... I was more of a fan of ALO, ALO, dear and even ONLY FOOLS AND HORSES and BLACK ADDER naturally
