Grace plays Emile, the president’s daughter who is on a goodwill mission to a maximum-security prison in outer space. While questioning an inmate, a jailbreak occurs and Emile is taken hostage.
“It’s a return to sci-fi in space. It’s not a dystopian ruined planet earth,” Grace said. “It’s a throwback, in a
If you’ve been watching Fringe this season, then you’ll recognize Michelle Krusiec as the actress who played one of the new, human shapeshifters. If you haven’t been watching, maybe Michelle herself can convince you to give it a shot! Michelle took the time to chat with us this week about her experiences on Fringe: covering everything from how the show is like an illicit drug to what it’s like to play a superhuman. Michelle also reveals the previously-unknown “shapeshifter” name of her character. The shapeshifter has been known only as Nadine, who was first introduced in the season premiere, and was seen most recently in last week’s episode “Enemy Of My Enemy”. I will say that I myself am curious as hell about what the shapeshifter name may signify…
And now I’ll
The 2012 comeback queen could very well be Helen Hunt, who returns to the big screen in "The Surrogate" after several years of flying under the radar. The film received rave reviews thanks to John Hawkes' star turn as a man confined to an iron lung after contracting polio and Hunt's portrayal as his sex surrogate/therapist.
Aside from receiving some of the festival's biggest buzz, it also got the biggest payday. Reuters confirms that the drama was purchased by Fox Searchlight for $6 million dollars, the largest amount of the 2012 festival so far.
"The Surrogate" is based on the true story of poet and journalist Mark O'Brien, and also stars William H. Macy as a priest who counsels Hawkes' character.
David Duchovny and Helen Hunt are to star in a new screen adaptation of Anton Chekhov's The Seagull.
Deadline.com reports that Larry Moss, their former acting coach, is set to direct Relative Insanity, which will update Chekhov's play to the present day and relocate the action from the Russian countryside to the Hamptons in upstate New York. Maggie Grace, Joan Chen and John Davidson will also star in the film, which will be written by Michael Din and Juri Henley-Cohn.
The Seagull centres on the fading actress Irina Nikolayevna Arkadina's relationship with her son Konstantin, a failing playwright in love with a bright, young actress, Nina Mikhailovna Zarechnaya. Though casting hasn't been officially announced, Hunt is likely to take the Irina
Based on Anton Chekhov’s 1895 play "The Seagull", the story follows the romantic and artistic conflicts between four characters: an ingenue, a fading actress, her playwright son, and a famous middlebrow story writer. This version shifts the action to the Hamptons in contemporary times.
Larry Moss, an acting coach who has been teaching many big names over the past 35 years, makes his feature directorial debut on the project which Michael Din and Juri Henley-Cohn adapted. Both scribes along with Jani Giaime will produce and shooting will kick off next year.

The Case: This week, we're dealing with yet another damn Academy Award winner and perhaps one of the greatest indicators that awards don't matter beyond a short-term improvement of the salary. In 1998, Helen Hunt won the Best Actress Oscar for her role in As Good As It Gets; she subsequently enjoyed a short run in a few high-powered blockbusters but then suddenly dropped off the Hollywood radar. Yet since the tender age of 10 years, Hunt's been working as an actress, although she didn't rise into mainstream popular culture until 1992's debut of "Mad About You." After seven seasons, a few Emmy awards, and a couple of blockbuster movies (including the aforementioned Oscar-winning role), Hunt pulled a Hollywood disappearing act for the most part. Indeed, the 1990s were hers,
