The Tudors Star Joins Locke And Key
The Tudors’ Sarah Bolger (Mary Tudor) has joined the cast of the upcoming Fox series Locke & Key according to Deadline. She will play Kinsey, one of three teens who move into a spooky mansion in the TV adaptation of the comic book by Joe Hill (son of Stephen King, as he’s no doubt fed up of being referred to). Bolger joins The Lord Of The Rings’ Miranda Otto, who has already been cast the teenagers’ mother.
17 Minutes Of Lost 2001: A Space Odyssey Footage Is Rediscovered
FX guru Douglas Trumbull and David Larson have rediscovered 17 minutes of edited footage from 2001: A Space Odyssey that Kubrick cut from 2001 just after release. The pair made the discovery while working on a now-abandoned documentary on the making of the film. According to Blastr, Trumball revealed the news when he was in Toronto recently giving a presentation that showed off a number of never-before-seen images from the film that will make their way into a behind-the-scenes photo book, now that Warner has pulled the plug on the documentary. The new footage, he said, was recently found, buried in a salt-mine vault in Kansas. So, expect a new cut of the film on Blu-ray and DVD soon… and just pray the extra 17 minutes aren’t just more of the Star Gate sequence…
Here’s a taster for an upcoming film that seems to have slipped in under our radar. Looks interesting…
Summer Glau Joins The Circus
In an interview with IGN about her role as Orwell in The Cape, Summer Glau reveals that she had to do some very unusual training for the show: “I went to Circus School, yeah! I was only able to go twice, but actually Izabella [Miko, who plays Raia] goes to the school regularly. I thought I was going to hate it. I don’t like to go upside down. So I told my coach, ‘I hate to go upside down,’ and sure enough, the first thing I was doing was hanging upside down like a monkey. But I was going, ‘I love this!’ I was having the time of my life. It was really fun!” She also says of her character, “[Orwell] has very creative ways of getting what she wants. Let’s put it that way! She never seems to run out of money. I wish she could let me in on a few of her tips, because I want to go on a shopping spree and buy all of Orwell’s clothes. Because that’s another thing she does: she owns pretty things! Which is an interesting quality to play, because she obviously has a higher calling and what she’s trying to do is selfless in a way, but it’s also very personally charged. And then on the other end, she’s driving these gorgeous cars and she has beautiful clothes to wear and she’s always got a new lair. She’s a girly girl in that way. She’s fighting crime, but she likes to look good too.”
