Coast Guard Drama 'The Finest Hours' Casts Ben Foster

9 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ben Foster has signed on to star alongside Chris Pine, Casey Affleck and Holliday Grainger in Disney's The Finest Hours.

The plot is based on the true story of a 1952 Coast Guard rescue mission, following one of the worst storms ever to hit the East Coast, which literally ripped an oil tanker in half. Facing sub-zero temperatures and waves as high as 70 feet, four Coast Guard members set off in a lifeboat to rescue over 30 crew members who were stranded in the sinking vessel. The mission is still considered to be the greatest 'small boat rescue" in Coast Guard history. No details were given for Ben Foster's character.

Craig Gillespie (Million Dollar Arm) is directing from a script by Paul Tamasy and Eric Johnson (The Fighter), which was adapted from the book by Casey Sherman and Michael J. Tougias. Production is currently under way.

Outlander Recap: Claire Gets Engaged!

14 September 2014 5:15 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

"Are you here by your own choice?" a redcoat asks Claire (Caitriona Balfe) at the start of this week's episode of Outlander. It's a vital question for Claire - she waits to respond and everyone looks shifty while waiting for her to answer. "I am a guest of the Clan MacKenzie," she says at last, surprising Dougal (Graham McTavish). The British decide to take her back to their general anyways, and Dougal insists on accompanying her. Once they reach the garrison, however, he's relentlessly mocked by the British. Claire defends Dougal, coming dangerously close to outing herself as a Scottish sympathizer. »

Outlander Video: Star, Showrunner Deconstruct Filming That Flogging Scene

13 September 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | TVGuide - Breaking News | See recent TVGuide - Breaking News news »

[Warning: The following story contains spoilers from Saturday's Outlander. Read at your own risk.]

Outlander has reached one of many pivotal moments from the first book on which it's based, but even if you knew what was coming, Saturday's episode was still hard to watch.

The hour began with Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Dougal (Graham McTavish) coming face-to-face with the Red Coats, and our leading lady assuring them that she had been with the MacKenzie clan willingly. Still, Claire had to convince another man of her motives: Jack Randall (Tobias Menzies), the man who almost raped her when she first fell through the stones at Craigh na Dun.

13 September 2014 9:31 AM, PDT | Access Hollywood | See recent Access Hollywood news »

"Outlander's" Claire Randall has been involved in a variety of sticky situations since landing in 1743, but in last week's episode of the Starz series, the TV heroine was presented with an opportunity to change her fate after meeting a rather chivalrous young man in red.

As Lieutenant Jeremy Foster, actor Tom Brittney made a splash during the broadcast when his English soldier character twice offered Claire (Caitriona Balfe) assistance during conflicts with her Highlander guard Dougal MacKenzie (Graham McTavish). And, despite the color of his coat (previously, Claire's Redcoat interactions were frightening), Tom's determined and principled Lt. Foster ...

Outlander’s Caitriona Balfe on Feminism, Fans, and Love Triangles

28 August 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

As the cast of Outlander was shooting the last block of the show's first season in Scotland, they got the good news: Starz had picked up the show for a second season. To celebrate, actor Graham McTavish broke out the whisky "for a kind of tasting," as lead actress Caitriona Balfe puts it during a call the following day, by way of explaining that she might be a little out of sorts. "Sorry, the whisky is stopping me from finding words!" she laughed. "The whisky's kicking in!" It has been a whirlwind year for Balfe, who was cast in the part of the time-traveling protagonist Claire Randall and immediately whisked off to the Scottish Highlands to start filming the series, with nary a break since. Balfe chatted with Vulture about good omens, oral sex, time-period feminism, and her Twilight-related worry. How much did you know about this series before you »

Untitled Robert the Bruce Project

"Starred Up" director David Mackenzie is reportedly keen on reuniting with that film's star Jack O'Connell for an upcoming and very gritty film about medieval Scottish king Robert the Bruce which he's working on.

Mackenzie says: "I’m trying to get Jack involved in that.  And I can’t say that’s official, but Jack and I have been in discussion on that.  But not as the Robert the Bruce character, as a secondary character, but a very, very sort of close second." [Source: Collider]
