BIRTH OF AN EMPIRE
CASTS MILOSH BIKOVICH AS TZAR PETER THE GREAT
After becoming pretty much a Tom Cruise type of blockbuster superstar over in good old Russia, it was rather logical that Serbian actor and panslavic star Milosh Bikovich will sooner or later get an imperial role. And now he
has! Hollywood Spy can exclusively announce that he is playing tzar Peter the Great in his younger years in new Russian historical epic movie THE BIRTH OF AN EMPIRE (Рождение империи) from director Aleksey Nuzhniy. It will cover 1698-1709 - ten years from the life of Peter the Great, during which he laid the foundations of the future Russian Empire. From the return of the great embassies from Europe to the Battle of Poltava. After the signing of a peace treaty with Sweden in 1721, Russia officially became an empire, and Peter became the first Russian emperor. The film, shot last autumn and winter, should premiere December 29th as the most beautiful New Year's present. The film will also include one of the actors from Western Europe as King Charles XII.

Not sure if I have ever watched a Russian film or TV series. Milosh Bikovich is a handsome man.ReplyDelete
You are missing out on a lot then, their films are often better than Hollywood ones. Historical series not so much, but are still interesting to watch. Milosh is very popular among the ladies both in Russia and Serbia :) And not just ladies....Delete
Fortunato Cerlino, with the C, not the SReplyDelete
Sorry, fixed it, never heard of him before, sadly.Delete
I want to watch just to see Milosh Bikovich!ReplyDelete
You remember that a few years ago I had a post on his comedy SON OF A RICH in which he plays a spoilt son of a millionaire who drugs him and then secretly sends him to his own reality programme set in times of the past in which he no longer son of a rich but a serf lolDelete
I do not, but I'm about to look it up. LOL We are catching up on Stranger Things and there's a very handsome Russian guard that is cast. They look similar. I have to look up that actor too to see if they're the same person.Delete
They aren't, but our actor Nikola Djuricko does star in Stranger Things, I think he plays a Russian pilot or something.Delete
Turns out the handsome russian isn't even russian. He's German! Thomas Wlaschiha is his name. Whatever his nationality, he does make for some good eye candy (which the show desperately needs now that Billy is gone)!Delete
Wlaschiha is German, duh :) And he is almost two decades older than Bikovich.Delete
Milosh is very handsome! I can see why he’s swooned over!ReplyDelete
Willow looks good. I’ll have to rewatch the original first. I know I saw it in the 80s but I don’t remember anything about it.
He is so massive there, they are literally going crazy about him. Hope he earns enough monies at the Ruskies to be able to produce our own epic historical movie.Delete
