1ST 'MR. HOLMES' CLIP WITH IAN MCKELLEN! AMANDA SEYFRIED & THEO JAMES IN 'BLACK LUNGS'! HBO'S COMEDY SERIES 'MAMMA DALLAS' CASTS AUGUSTUS PREW, NICO TORTORELLA, HUGH COX

'BLACK LUNGS' THRILLER
AMANDA SEYFRIED AND THEO JAMES IN LEAD ROLES
The two of them will certainly make an exquisitely hot couple on the big screen, won't they? According to 'The Hollywood Reporter' gorgeous Amanda Seyfried and Divergent's young hunkster Theo James will take the lead roles in BLACK LUNGS supernatural thriller which will centre on Del (Amanda Seyfried), the wife of a Utah coal miner who has a premonition about an impending disaster, which ultimately saves her husband's (Theo James) life. This puts the husband under suspicion when a mine explosion traps several other miners, as the wife's visions keep getting worse and worse, hinting at a sinister, supernatural force within the mountain.

HBO'S 'MAMMA DALLAS' CASTS
AUGUSTUS PREW, NICO TORTORELLA, MARY GARRISON
In television news today, here's something that sounds possibly fun: HBO has gathered up cast for their new comedy series MAMMA DALLAS! The half hour comedy follows a couple, Carrie Cox (Mary Catherine Garrison) and Hugh Cox (Paul Fitzgerald), who unwittingly hire a hard-living drag queen as their live-in nanny. Liberty (Augustus Prew) appears to be an attractive woman with a flirty side — but she’s really a drag queen with an upbeat personality. On a path that leads to jail or prostitution or both, Liberty (also known as Albert) sees a future that will destroy his basically optimistic spirit and re-invents himself to get a job as a nanny to three children of a conservative Texan family. With her decorating business taking off, perfectionistic Carrie needs a nanny to help with the kids, and it doesn’t occur to Carrie that she’s having a long talk about childrearing with a drag queen. Hugh is an earnest, successful man with political aspirations who is deathly afraid of any hint of scandal. Nico Tortorella will play Liberty’s lowlife boyfriend Jesse, who runs a chop shop and steals high-priced sports cars with Liberty’s help. He’s horrified that his macho friends will find out he’s dating a guy.

'MR HOLMES' 1ST CLIP WITH 
 OUTSTANDING IAN MCKELLEN
The first clip has been released for Ian McKellen's MR. HOLMES directed by Bill Condon!  It’s 1947, and upon returning from Japan having witnessed the atomic devastation, the world’s greatest detective has settled into his remote farmhouse. The 93-year-old Holmes has only the company of his housekeeper (Laura Linney) and her young son (Milo Parker). Grappling with diminishing mental  powers, Holmes relies on the boy as he revisits the circumstances of the unsolved case that forced him into retirement and searches for answers to the mysteries of life and love – before it’s too late.

  1. I'm looking forward to "Mr Holmes" so much! I love both Ian McKellen and Sherlock Holmes, so how can the combo not be fabulous? Aging and the diminishment it brings interest me as well, in a kind of anxiety-ridden, dreading way.

  2. Mama Dallas sounds like an updated Mrs. Doubtfire. Might be funny, but we'll wait to see what others say first.

    1. I just hope they won't make it weird and overly rude, given that she goes stealing cars with Nico.... that kinda made me less optimistic

      Delete
    2. Probably will be. It seems a lot of tv shows are going for raunchy and rude instead of wholesome and funny :(

    3. it's either rude and crude humour, or extreme bloodthirsty violence... that is the way America rolls these days :( Sometimes I feel they are preparing for WW3 by first making the nation totally insensitive

  5. I remember when you told us about MR. HOLMES the first time. I've wondered when it would come out.
    Amanda Seyfried better not have that dress on in BLACK LUNGS, can you imagine getting coal dust out of that!
