'CORTES' EPIC SERIES
ADS CAST TO THE AZTEC COURT
Javier Bardem will take the lead role
Last year's series Hernan over at History Channel and Amazon Prime turned out to be a rather monotonous mess, but now we are getting a new chance to view another series on the infamous explorer as Amazon is preparing new historical series CORTES in which, as I've already informed you, the lead role will go to Javier Bardem. The new update is that he is now being joined by Tenoch Huerta as Moctezuma, the tyrant Emperor of the Aztecs, and Yoshira Escárrega as Marina, strategic partner and translator who betrayed her own people to become consort to Hernán Cortés.

The Four Part Mini Series
created by Schindler List's Steven Zaillian, will chart the inexorable march and eventual clash between infamous Spanish conquistador Hernán Cortés
Yoshira Escarrega and Tenoch Huerta will play the locals
and Aztec Emperor Moctezuma II, leading to the annihilation of an empire and tragic downfall of a civilization that took centuries to build, but less than two years to destroy.

    1. In reality he looks much older than in my photo above. Half of Hollywood is now very much old.

    2. The joy of aging. We will one day be old and wrinkly too, if we're lucky enough to make it that long.

    3. Yes, with our luck we will probably die young and beautiful LOL and fat in my case.

  2. This sounds like an interesting series, but how does an entire civilization get destroyed? Was no one left to rebuild? We need more fantasies and less tragedies to feast on.

    1. They haven't taught you that in history lessons? Admittedly, Moctezuma was a nasty bugger who liked to sacrifice thousands to his imaginary Gods, not that the conquistadors and Spanish people of that time were any better.

    2. Nope! Our history classes were probably very different than other country's history classes. I learned that through conversations with my husband. Although, admittedly, so were his. He seems to think Christopher Columbus never made it to America and went to Cuba instead.

    3. Conquistadors killed and butchered a large number of native warriors (who did not have horses, vicious dogs nor swords) and then brought down their empires and enforced their own rule and system over them. Those that did not die after from the diseases brought from the west, were assimilated into the Spanish society that was established there ending up as slaves and over the centuries most of them just died. They did, of course, leave their genes in the blood of the future generations. USA probably does not teach their kids about it much as that is what they did themselves to Native Americans later on. Plus they still like to invade other countries and cultures around the world, especially the oil rich ones in order to 'spread democracy' of course... the same excuse Cortes and Columbus used in their time.

    4. "not that the conquistadors and Spanish people of that time were any better..." Excellent point, Dezzzmeister.
