AARON JAKUBENKO IS ELVEN PRINCE IN 'SHANNARA' EPIC FANTASY TV SERIES! 'WHILE WE'RE YOUNG' TRAILER WITH BEN STILLER, NAOMI WATTS. 'BOY IN THE DRESS' TRAILER WITH DAVID WALLIAMS, KATE MOSS, JENNIFER SAUNDERS

AARON JAKUBENKO IS
ELVEN PRINCE IN 'SHANNARA'
In today's TV news, MTV's small screen adaptation of famous epic fantasy novels SHANNARA has a new cast member: ten episode series based on Terry Brooks' books will see Aaron Jakubenko starring in the story set in our world, thousands of years after the destruction of our civilization. The focus is on the SHANNARA family, whose descendants are empowered with ancient magic and whose adventures continuously reshape the future of the world. Aaron Jakubenko will play Ander, Amberle’s uncle, an Elven Prince with the reputation for being the wild party boy who has yet to find his way in the world. I've reported recently that Poppy Drayton will play Amberle, an Elven princess who is the guardian of the ancient Ellcrys tree.

BEN STILLER & NAOMI WATTS
Two trailers for you today, starting with the comedy one for WHILE WE'RE YOUNG which is out next March starring Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts as a middle aged couple whose career and marriage are overturned when a disarming young couple (Adam Driver and Amanda Seyfried) enters their lives.

    1. Although I find them extremely embarrassing, I do find most of Stiller's comedies funny unlike Adam Sandler's ones which I mostly cannot stand

  3. Ahh...so Ben Stiller has officially reached the age where he's landing "middle aged" roles! Depressing for those of us who are around his age (I think?).

  4. Aaron Jakubenko - beautiful eyes - crystal like.
    Stiller is not a favorite but the movie seems cute. I enjoyed the trailer.
    Boy with the dress - honestly, I don't think orange is his color.

  5. While We're Young looks like it will be fun and a good reminder for those of us at that age we can still act young. :)

  6. Stller's generation of comedians isn't very funny. I miss Steve Martin, Bill Muray, Rick Moranis, John Candy, Tom Hanks... You know, when I was still young?

    1. Muray being funny is very debatable if you ask moi :)

  9. The Boy In The Dress looks fantastic and filled with humour. It astounds me that people today still have so many misconceptions about cross dressing. It's not gender confusion, it's not about sexuality, it's simply about preference. Eddie Izzard made great strides in the UK whilst performing cross dressed. I hope this movie does more good as well..

    1. I agree, dear, it is so thoughtful of BBC to make such a movie and air it in the family festive time!

  10. "The Boy in the Dress" looks charming! I'd love to be able to see it but who knows if it will be shown over here? Can't really see PBS picking up this one.

    1. It should show up on the Netflix but it will take six months to a year.
