On Thursday, Netflix confirmed to Entertainment Weekly that Golden Globe-winning period drama The Crown has cast Michael C. Hall (Dexter) and Jodi Balfour (Quarry, Almost Anything) to play the charming and widely adored Jack and Jackie Kennedy in season 2 of the hit series.

Hall will be joined by “Quarry” star Jodi Balfour as Jackie Kennedy. Season 2 of the English drama, which doesn’t yet have a premiere date, will segue into the 1960s, as Queen Elizabeth II loses her third prime minister to scandal amidst the illegal use of Her Majesty’s Armed Forces in Egypt.
“The Crown,” produced by Sony Pictures TV’s Left Bank Pictures, is rumored to be the streaming service’s most expensive production, clocking in at over $150 million. The series won two Golden Globes last month — for best drama series and best actress in a drama, Claire Foy.

The first trailer has arrived online for The Hatton Garden Job. Based on the true story of the 2015 London Hatton Garden Vault robbery which was planned and carried out by four elderly men who are believed to have stolen items up to the value of £20o,000,000, the films stars Matthew Goode, Larry Lamb, Phil Daniels, Mark Harris, Joely Richardson, David Calder, Clive Russell, and Stephen Moyer; take a look below after the official synopsis…

Back in 2015, Britain witnessed a robbery that could have been straight out of the movies. It was a throwback crime to the days of the Great Train Robbery of 1963, a crime which made the likes of Buster Edwards and Ronnie Biggs household names. It was only a matter of time before this new story was adapted for the big screen and The Hatton Garden Job is just that film.
The Hatton Garden Job is directed by Tower Block and I Am Soldier writer and director Ronnie Thompson, though looking at the new trailer anyone would think this has a touch of Guy Ritchie about it. The cast is none too shabby either; the gang of aging criminals is lead by Brian Reader who is played by Larry Lamb who may be most recognisable as Gavin’s Dad in Gavin and Stacey. He also had the evil role »

Actor Matthew Goode, who in past years has become a go-to actor of sorts for period films and TV shows, will be adding another one to his list of credits, as TV Line reports that he is joining the cast of Netflix’s The Crown for its upcoming second season.
For those unaware, The Crown is a Golden Globe-winning Netflix show that focuses on the life of Queen Elizabeth II and her reign of the United Kingdom. Goode will play Antony Armstrong-Jones, aka Lord Snowdon, the society photographer who Princess Margaret, the youngest daughter of King Geroge VI, was married to for 18 years before getting divorced. In real life, Snowdon passed away just earlier this year at the age of 85.

Netflix is reviving another small-screen relic — and, we fear, all the problematic stereotypes that come along with it.
The hit makeover show Queer Eye for the Straight Guy — in which five gay men worked together to enlighten heterosexual slobs in the ways of fashion, food, etc. from 2003 to 2007 — is being rebooted by Netflix. But even though a decade has passed since the Bravo series wrapped its 100-episode run, its general conceit — that all gay men are expected to be fun, fit and fashionable — remains remarkably unevolved. »
The Crown is adding a familiar face to make Queen Elizabeth’s family dynamics even more complicated.
Matthew Goode (The Good Wife, Downton Abbey) has joined the Season 2 cast of Netflix’s Golden Globe-winning period drama, according to the UK’s Radio Times. And he’s playing a big role: Lord Snowdon (aka Antony Armstrong-Jones), the society photographer who was married to Elizabeth’s sister Princess Margaret from 1960 to 1978. Season 1 saw Elizabeth and Margaret bicker over the princess’ ill-fated romance with divorced airman Peter Townsend; we’ll see if Liz takes to Lord Snowdon any better. (No spoilers, please!)
The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that the British actor has joined season two of The Crown, Netflix's Golden Globe-winning series about the rule of Queen Elizabeth II. He'll play Antony Armstrong-Jones, better known as Lord Snowdon, the society photographer who was married to Princess Margaret (Vanessa Kirby) from 1960 until 1978. The couple, who had two children together, divorced after 18 years of marriage. Snowdon died earlier in January at the age of 86.

Although Netflix declined to confirm/comment, TVLine has learned exclusively that Arrested Development‘s long-gestating fifth season will likely have a major prequel element, with potentially half of the action unfolding in flashbacks featuring much younger versions of all the principal characters (played by different actors).
