'GENIUS' SERIES SEASON 2
ANTONIO BANDERAS AND ALEX RICH TO PLAY PABLO PICASO
If you enjoyed the first season of National Geographic anthology series GENIUS in which Geoffrey Rush played Einstein, you will be happy
to hear that they have the cast for the second season which will focus on Pablo Picaso! Antonio Bande- ras and Alex Rich will play him older and younger. Cléme- nce Poésy (as French painter and author Francoise Gilot, who had two children with him), Robert Sheehan (as Carlos Casa- gemas, a poet, Picasso’s closest friend), Poppy Dele- vingne (as Picaso's lover and muse), Aisling Franciosi (as Fernande Olivier, a French artist and model who Picasso painted more than 60 portraits of) and Sebastian Roché (as Francoise’s tyrannical father) will also star! Some of the stars from the first season will return to the cast like, for example, Samantha Colley who will again play Dora Maar!

'KRYPTON' SF SERIES
BLAKE RITSON IS BRAINIAC
While we are still waiting for SyFy to announce the airtime finally
(it is not happening any time this year) their KRYPTON series is casting
new names! Da Vinci's Demons' Blake Ritson will be a baddie again
playing Brainiac, a parasitic, hyper advanced alien android of immense
intelligence, one of Superman’s oldest and most dangerous foes. As you
know, KRYPTON is set two generations before the destruction of the
legendary Man of Steel’s home planet following Superman’s grandfather
(Cameron Cuffe), whose House of El was ostracised and shamed, as he
fights to redeem his family’s honour and save his beloved world from
chaos. Paula Malcomson has also joined the cast as Charys, the matriarch
of House El who helps her son Seg navigate the treacherous pitfalls of
Kandor City, their Kryptonian home embattled with oppression and revolt.
It is interesting that the cast already has another Da Vinci's Demons
star Elliot Cowan. The pilot was shot last year in Serbia.
