Although Paula Marshall originally had the part, word has come down that Kristin Bauer van Straten (“True Blood”‘s fan favorite Pam) will now be portraying Maleficent, the evil sorceress from Sleeping Beauty, in one episode of ABC’s upcoming “Once Upon a Time”. She’ll appear in Episode 2, airing Sunday, October 30th.
“Once Upon a Time”, from the inventive minds of “Lost” executive producers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis, is a bold new imagining of the world, where fairy tales and the modern-day are about to collide.
And they all lived happily ever after – or so everyone was led to believe. Emma Swan knows how to take care of herself. She’s a 28-year-old bail bonds collector who’s been on her own ever since she was abandoned as a baby. But when the son she gave up years ago finds her, everything starts to change. Henry is now 10 years old and in desperate need of Emma’s help. He believes that Emma actually comes from an alternate world and is Snow White and Prince Charming’s missing daughter. According to his book of fairy tales, they sent her away to protect her from the Evil Queen’s curse, which trapped the fairy tale world forever, frozen in time, and brought them into our modern world.
Of course Emma doesn’t believe a word, but when she brings Henry back to Storybrooke, she finds herself drawn to this unusual boy and his strange New England town. Concerned for Henry, she decides to stay for a while, but she soon suspects that Storybrooke is more than it seems. It’s a place where magic has been forgotten, but is still powerfully close… where fairy tale characters are alive, even though they don’t remember who they once were. The epic battle for the future of all worlds is beginning, but for good to win, Emma will have to accept her destiny and fight like hell.
I don’t know much, but if Kristin is in this I’m sure she will rock her role…just like she does in True Blood. I think she would make one wicked sorceress!
Alexander Skarsgard shoots film in North White Plains via PortChesterPatch.com
If you are a fan of “True Blood,” then you may have seen someone you wanted to sink your teeth into at Saveway Cleaners on Monday.
The HBO series’ hottest star—Alexander Skarsgard, who plays the tall blonde and handsome vampire Eric Northman—was seen filming his latest movie “Disconnect,” at dry cleaners located at 615 N. Broadway in North White Plains.
The North Castle Clerk’s office confirmed that they approved a film permit for the production to shoot from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Monday.
According to Lucia Sorio, a North Broadway resident, her street was crowded all day with film crews—though she didn’t find out what was going on until she went to pick up her dry cleaning.
“It is not until I got inside the store that one of the guys who works there told me ‘before you ask what is going on let me tell you, we are in the middle of shooting a movie,’” said Sorio.
Sorio was then told that one of the actors from the series “True Blood,” was about to get close to the counter, and to act like nothing was going on.
“And there he was,” said Sorio. “An awesomely hot tall blonde guy.”
According to IMDb.com, the film is set to be released in 2012, is directed by Henry Alex Rubin and also stars Jason Bateman of the television sitcom “Arrested Development,” and Paul Patton who was in the film “Precious.”
According to a letter from the production’s assistant location manager, the film “tells three interconnecting stories of life in an Internet focused world, and explores how we are more often connected to and affected by online relationships than with the people who are physically in our lives.” Click on the PDF to read the permit application letter.
That makes me think I need to start using a cleaner:)
Joe Manganiello to Guest Star on Two and a Half Men via TVology.com
The True Blood star and Sex Bomb Of My Dreams Joe Manganiello is set to guest star on That Really Weird Show That Charlie Sheen Used To Be On That Still Isn’t Funny but I think it’s called Two And A Half Men for short. He’s going to be playing the new boyfriend of Walden’s (Ashton Kutcher’s) ex-wife Bridget (Judy Greer). To which, I respond: that Judy Greer chick is one lucky hooker. All I’m hoping for is at least one shirtless scene. Then maybe I’d actually have a chance to watch Why Is Ashton Kutcher Back On TV Again? because why else would I? Joe will be featured in the show’s October 24th episode.
