TRAVIS FIMMEL, CHLOE SEVIGNY JOIN 'LEAN ON PETE' ADAPTATION! BBC TO TURN 'LES MISERABLES' INTO TV SERIES! ADAM CROASDELL IS LORD BOTHWELL IN 'REIGN' EPIC SEASON 4

 TRAVIS FIMMEL JOINS
'LEAN ON PETE' ADAPTATION
While you are enjoying his role of brave warrior Anduin Lothar in record breaking WARCRAFT movie, you can expect to see Travis Fimmel in another new project: as 'Deadline' reports he and Chloe Sevigny have joined Steve Buscemi and young Charlie Plummer in LEAN ON PETE
An adaptation of Willy Vlautin’s acclaimed novel follows Charley Thompson, the itinerant teen abandoned by his mother as a baby as he embarks on a perilous journey in search of his long lost aunt and a possible home. Charley’s quest carries him from a horse racing track in Portland, through the sagebrush of the Oregon desert, to the city streets of Denver, his sole companion the stolen racehorse Lean on Pete.


 ADAM CROASDELL JOINS 
'REIGN'S EPIC SEASON 4
I've already informed you of the whole slate of new actors that are joining queen of Scots' Mary's court in the fourth season of CW's REIGN, and now the latest one is British star Adam Croasdell!  He is to play Bothwell, Queen Mary’s third husband, a warm hearted bad boy who is deeply loyal, and ultimately deeply in love with Mary Queen of Scots. I've told you before that Steve Lund will play Lord Narcisse's handsome son, and that Will Kemp will play her second husband Lord Darnley! Breezily confident, charming and warm, he was born with a blood claim of his own to the English throne and a wildly ambitious mother whose love hinges entirely on his ability to secure a crown.

 'LES MISERABLES
TO BECOME NEW BBC SERIES
Well, after the great successes of WAR AND PEACE and DICKENSIAN, it was only to be expected that BBC will venture even deeper into the world of literary classics for their new series: according to latest news, Andrew Davies (the same scribe that turned the tragic and deeply moving depth of Tolstoy's classic into an Austenian flimsy affair) will now pen a six episode mini series based on Victor Hugo's LES MISERABLES! But here's the catch = this time it will be without singing! It will, of course, follow Jean Valjean a former convict unable to escape the shadow of his past life while being pursued by his enemy, police officer Javert.

  3. Les Miserables can really only be done justice in a mini-series. It's just too jammed packed with characters, events and ideas to be crammed down into a single movie. But unlike Wendy, I will miss the score from the musical, which I love. Oh well, can't have everything.

    1. they were probably thinking oooh, let us use up the sets from DICKENSIAN and WAR AND PEACE and do LES MISERABLES :) I expect the scribe to make the story superficial, but I do expect a nice cast

  4. I tried to watch Les Miserables movie and couldn't get 15 minutes in before deleting it. The singing grated my nerves. I will be happy to watch the mini series though!

    1. I still have it in my folder and still haven't found enough strength to deal with all the singing :) I just don't need Russell Crowe singing in my life

    4. He definitely lost a little credibility with me with his singing. Just awful. You really don't need to subject yourself to that kind of abuse.

    5. If you ask me, only Ewan McGregor should be allowed to sing in Hollywood... and Luke Evans, naturally... they can lull me to sleep every night
