The Knotsynopsis Soulmates Alexandra (Talulah Riley) and Jeremy (Matthew McNulty) are getting married. At least that’s the plan. Unfortunately for them, nonchalant best man Peter (Noel Clarke), bridesmaid Sarah (Mena Suvari) and an army of naysayers haven’t heard they’re meant to be together. Can missing bridesmaids, crashed cars, a trip to A&E, and a delivery of pigs testicles stand in the way of true love? Here are two images from The Knot featuring Talulah Riley...

Image
According to Hollywood Reporter, Jena Malone(who was reportedly in the running for the same role recently) has been chosen to play Johanna Mason, a tribute in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (sequel to the box-office hit The Hunger Games), which means she'll co-star again with her former P&P Co-starDonald Sutherland (as President Snow) along with Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, and Elizabeth Banks. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire will be in theaters on November 22, 2013!

This is great news if she is officially cast (as she is said to be in early negotiations) in the sequel of this film as Jena will be perfect for this role (and will most likely return for the third and final film Mokingjay). She's an amazing, versatile, underrated actress who can play just about any role. So, yeah, let's hope she'll be officially cast as I'm more looking forward to seeing the sequel now of THG (loved the first movie too) with Jena and Donald Sutherland in t…

Pride & Prejudice actors starring on web series, made for TV movies, series and miniseries

Image
The main and supporting cast of the 2005 film, Pride & Prejudice are quite a versatile and multi-talented bunch. They're everywhere on the big or small screen, be it on feature films, short films, webseries, stage plays, or on TV. I love that they don't do just feature films, but also do small independent films as well as lots of made for TV movies, TV series (even a scripted Wigs series via YouTube), and TV miniseries. I love seeing my favorite P&P actors doing (or rather appearing on) various things on screen, be it on the big screen or small screen. A TV series or miniseries on the small screen is even more awesome as you get to see them on a regular bases and we don't have a long time to wait to see them again on screen as films on the big screen often do. The downside, of course, is being cancelled, but there's always another new exciting and different project for them to do, if a previous pilot or project didn't work out. It's great to see some o…
