Exclusive: Warner Bros and Guy Ritchie have set French actress Astrid Berges-Frisbey to play Guinevere in Knights Of The Roundtable: King Arthur. The casting comes after the studio set Sons Of Anarchy‘s Charlie Hunnam as King Arthur.
Berges-Frisbey was in the cast of Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. She was born in Spain, grew up in France and started on French TV in 2007. She had to learn English when she was cast as the mermaid Syrena in the Pirates blockbuster. Since Joby Harold wrote this to span as many as six installments, this is potentially a major star-making role for the young actress.
Berges-Frisby is repped by CAA, Untitled and Artmedia.

Coppola will play Mildred Treal, the Principal at the preschool where Jax and Wendy’s son, Abel, is a student. (As TVLine previously reported, rocker Courtney Love is set to recur as Abel’s straight-shooting teacher, Ms. Harrison.).
• Boardwalk Empire actor Jack Huston will take the chariot reins as the title role in the upcoming remake of Ben-Hur. Previously, Tom Hiddleston had been in talks for the role of slave Judah Ben-Hur in the Paramount and MGM picture. Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted) is directing the film adapted by John Ridley (12 Years a Slave) and Keith Clarke (The Way Back) that is said to be based more on Lew Wallace’s 1880 novel Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ than the 1959 film that starred Charlton Heston. Morgan Freeman has already been cast as Ildarin, the teacher who helps make the slave Ben-Hur into chariot racer champion. »

The face of "Doctor Who" for the last four years, as well as one of the stars of Ryan Gosling's misfire "Lost River," Matt Smith is now bringing this talents to a twisted take on a Jane Austen classic. The actor is joining Lily James, Sam Riley, Jack Huston, Bella Heathcote and Douglas Booth in "Pride And Prejudice And Zombies." Burr Steers will finally get this long developing project moving, and the story follows "Liz Bennett, [who] is pressured by her family to marry into a wealthy upper-class home and chafes at the stiff societal ways of 1800s England. Instead, she feels that she should help defend the countryside against the onslaught of a horrifying zombie plague." Smith will play Mr. Collins, and production starts next week. [THR] "Sons Of Anarchy" star Katey Sagal is joining Miles Teller, Aaron Eckhart and Ciarin Hinds in "Bleed For This." The movie tells the »

Adam Arkin broke out as an actor in 1990 with the recurring Northern Exposure role of Adam, a barefoot, grungy hermit/gourmet chef who popped up now and then to vex Dr. Joel Fleischman. But his biggest moment on the hit CBS show might have come three years later, when he made his debut on the other side of the camera. He quickly found a niche directing shows that he also appeared in, first, during his long stint on CBS’s Chicago Hope; more recently, on the FX dramas Sons of Anarchy and Justified; and just this past Sunday, on Masters of Sex, when he turned up as a PR man our recapper referred to as a “silver fox.” Tonight he joins the cast of The Bridge, playing a role he describes as “an upstanding, well-meaning DEA agent” (it should come as no surprise that he directed an August episode of »

Guys were in control of the remote control during primetime last week, as five dude-driven offerings — four NFL games and the record-setting season premiere of FX’s “Sons of Anarchy” — topped the demo rankings.
NBC’s “Sunday Night Football,” which was once again the week’s top primetime show, joined the premiere of “Thursday Night Football” on CBS and NFL Network and the season-premiere doubleheader of Espn’s “Monday Night Football to win every half-hours on those nights. And college football (first on CBS and then ABC) ruled from start to finish on Saturday.
The week’s most impressive number, though, came from FX’s season premiere of “Sons of Anarchy,” which set series records in both adults 18-49 (3.2 rating/10 share) and total viewers (6.2 million) — especially impressive considering that its long 110-minute run time meant it didn’t end until 11:50 p.m.
“Sons” (pictured) was the No. 1 program on »

Sons of Anarchy, Season 7, Episode 2, “Toil and Till”
Written by Kurt Sutter
Directed by Bill Gierhart
Airs Tuesday at 10pm on FX
After multiple seasons spent on the sideline contributing minimally to any actual plot, Unser finally has the opportunity this week to get out from under the thumb of the club and do some good. At this point in the show, Unser is little more than Gemma’s own personal peanut gallery who occasional finds himself in a dangerous situation that is almost always her fault. With the addition of the always welcome Annabeth Gish as local law enforcement offering another path (a path with health insurance and a gun permit, however improbable) one can only hope he commits to moving away from Samcro’s influence in order to more fully enjoy his old age. Leaving the associated paperwork out where anyone from the club could see it is »

Drea de Matteo is a little sad. She’s finally become a regular cast member on Sons of Anarchy as Wendy, Jax’s ex-junkie baby mama, and the show is riding off the air at the end of its current seventh season. “Now that I’m in there, I want to keep going!” de Matteo says. At least she’s getting lots of juicy scenes as she helps Jax (Charlie Hunnam) raise their son, Abel, as well as Thomas, his infant boy with now-dead old lady Tara (Maggie Siff). The Queens, New York, native talked to Vulture about Wendy’s life expectancy, The Sopranos’ still-controversial finale, and why she’s “too much of a whore for network TV!”Wendy busted herself out of rehab after 9 of 90 days. Is it possible she’s cleaned up her act or will this turn out to be a bad decision?Well, I don’t know. »

Waiting to catch Tuesday night’s “Sons of Anarchy?” Better water those nicotine-laced azaleas and clean up those airstreams because spoilers abound in this review. “Toil and Till” was less poetic than last week’s extended season opener (in large part thanks to its lack of melodramatic musical montages and its faster pace), but it continued down the dark, fiery path that Jax and co. have established that they are in fact on in Season 7. The episode kicked off with Jax, alone in bed and then at his kitchen table, staring at the spot where he found his dead wife. The cameras then panned to Juice, also alone at his table, before flipping to Gemma in juxtaposition to show how the actual person who caused all of this suffering is also the one who continues to win because she has a man who loves her by her side. Sure, we »

I think it’s safe to say the Sons of Anarchy went easy on us this week.
After last Tuesday’s super-sized, thoroughly brutal premiere, the final season’s second installment was much less of a roller coaster ride — y’know, as far as Sons of Anarchy episodes go.
But with this being the Sons’ final ride, even Tuesday’s tame (by comparison) hour wasn’t without its share of bloodshed.
Read on to learn what took place during “Toil and Till”:

Sons of Anarchy returned last week with a slow, but poignant start. For one, Jax (Charlie Hunnam) exacted his revenge on the man he thought was most directly responsible for Tara’s death in a most gruesome fashion (I don’t know about you, but I won’t be eating fortune cookies anytime soon). Elsewhere, Gemma (Katey Sagal) skated through the first hurdle in throwing everyone off the possibility that she had anything to do with the unfortunate events, all while protecting Juice (Theo Rossi). And, Unser (Dayton Callie) scored himself an interesting new position back on the “right” side of the law.
On tonight’s episode, “Toil and Till,” Jax laid out his detailed plan to take down Lin and his operation, as part of his epic supply of payback for Tara’s murder. It’s more than a little unsettling to watch all of his carefully laid out »

Easily the most anticipated new show of the season is Gotham, and if you weren’t able to attend the premiere party, here’s the next best thing.
It was clearly quite the party, and even if you aren’t among the hopefuls looking for this to become your next favorite show, it’s a series that absolutely has to be watched… for a while at least. Just based on the cast and crew, and any connection to Batman, you have to check out what they do with this thing. And, I have to say, Donal Logue. The End.
And again, even if you aren’t already sold, there’s something interesting about the idea of expanding on the early years, beyond just the flashback that sets Bruce Wayne in motion.
Well, you may as well check out what went on, and get all the more excited for next week’s premiere of the show. »

"Sons of Anarchy" had its record-breaking Season 7 premiere last week, making the beloved biker drama's final season even more real (and heartbreaking) for the show's fans.
If there's one "Soa" character that stands out from the pack as a fan favorite, it's Alex "Tig" Trager. The wild, violent, and freaky biker has been a source of bloody entertainment and comic relief throughout the show's run. And we wouldn't have Tig without actor Kim Coates.
Coates has been working on film, stage, and TV for decades, and his career doesn't appear to be slowing down any time soon. The versatile Canadian-born actor has appeared in everything from "Entourage" to "Waterworld" to "A Streetcar Named Desire" on Broadway.
Moviefone had the chance to chat with Coates about what fans will see this season on "Sons of Anarchy," as the show comes to its bittersweet end. He also revealed a bit of what »

It's too bad for FX that motorcycle drama "Sons of Anarchy" is signing off after this season: Its season premiere just set a record as the most-watched episode in the network's history.
The Hollywood Reporter writes that the September 9 debut of the show's seventh and final season has pulled in a whopping 9.25 million viewers, with live-plus-three day viewing factored in. And with encore presentations also added to the calculations, as well as views on the FXNow streaming app, the episode has already notched 10.6 million views in less than a week.
And the jaw-dropping numbers don't stop there. THR writes that compared to the "Sons" series premiere back in 2008, which scored 2.82 million viewers, the audience for last week's episode had increased by 228 percent. Yes, you read that correctly: 228 percent. Yowza.
We're doubting that Kurt Sutter and co. can be convinced to keep "Sons" around for an extra season in light of these stellar numbers, »
