JAMIE DORNAN JOINS
'SIEGE OF JADOTVILLE' AND BRADLEY COOPER'S 'ADAM JONES'
One of our dearest of Irish hunks Jamie Dornan is currently promoting his role in 50 SHADES OF GREY, but he is also getting new gigs: according to 'Deadline' he will star in political thriller THE SIEGE OF JADOTVILLE about the 1961 siege of 150 UN Irish troops, led by Dornan's character, in the Congo after the murder of leader Patrice Lumumba by pro-western leader Moise Tshombe. His battalion held out against a force of 3,000 local troops led by French and Belgian mercenaries working for the mining companies. Jamie will also star in Bradley Cooper's cooking film which changed its title from CHEF to ADAM JONES! Also starring Daniel Bruhl, Sienna Miller, Emma Thompson, Uma Thurman and Richard Rankin, the movie will follow a chef who loses his job in Paris and moves to London where he assembles a crew in an attempt to create the best restaurant ever.

    1. We do love sf shows, too bad SyFy always makes them supercheap and trashy

  2. The Theory of Everything will be tough to watch. But I'm betting Eddie Redmayne will probably get some award love for the part. :)

  3. Theory of Everything looks interesting, but Ghost Brigade sounds right up my alley. As does Absolute Zero.

  4. Is it wrong that I laughed in the Theory of Everything trailer when he receives his voice and she said "its American" "Is that a problem?"

  7. Maybe something is wrong with me, but I do not find Jamie Dornan attractive at all. And I usually think those Irish lads are pretty hunky.

    The Theory of Everything will be amazing. That's the kind of movie that both my husband and I really take an interest in.

    1. I do find him attractive, but that is because I've known him for a long time and I know how modest he is in his private life. He is a mix of modest and naughty for me.

      Delete
    2. Ah, yes, modesty can be an attractive trait. I guess if I followed his private life, then maybe it would be a different story for me.

    3. he recently said that he considers himself unattractive and skinny. I wanted to spank his (naked) bum for saying such nonsense :)

  9. The Stephen Hawking movie does sound interesting. I had no idea he was once healthy and progressed toward his disease until I started reading about this movie.

  10. I won't be watching 50 Shades of Grey as that novel was utter trash. But me loves Jamie Still. I don't know the story of Jadotville and that's one I'd watch.

    The Theory of Everything will be well received I think. Hawking is now over 70. Looks like the doctors underestimated him a tad.
