Christina Hendricks on the cover of Esquire

Posted by LiveFor on April 19, 2010

Why another photo of Christina Hendricks? Well she has been good to Live for Films and has consistently been in the top posts of all time on the site so I know a lot of you out there dig her. Plus she was in Firefly.

Here is a little of what she has to say:

We want you to order Scotch. It’s the most impressive drink order. It’s classic. It’s sexy. Such a rich color. The glass, the smell. It’s not watered down with fruit juice. It’s Scotch. And you ordered it.

Stand up, open a door, offer a jacket. We talk about it with our friends after you do it. We say, “Can you believe he stood up when I approached the table?” It makes us feel important. And it makes you important because we talk about it.

Panties is a wonderful word. When did you stop saying “panties”? It’s sexy. It’s girlie. It’s naughty. Say it more.

You can check out the Mad Men star’s Letter to Men over at the Esquire site. I still think she would make a great Power Girl.

UPDATED: The Walking Dead – Will Rick Grimes be Sick Boy? 6 episodes ordered

Posted by LiveFor on March 29, 2010

The other day news was out that Jon Bernthal (Night at the Museum 2, The Ghost) was to play Shane in Frank Darabont’s small screen adaptation of the Robert Kirkman zombie comic, The Walking Dead.

Now Bloody Disgusting have news on a possible actor to play the main character Rick Grimes. That man is Jonny Lee Miller (Trainspotting, Hackers, Dracula 2000, Eli Stone). Let me get this clear. He hasn’t been cast yet, but is the current favourite. Not sure about the choice, but I think it could work.

The Walking Dead is going to be on AMC who also show Mad Men and Breaking Bad so that should be a good indication that this is going to be a quality show.

Do you think Miller is the right fit for Grimes?

UPDATE: This from THR

“The Walking Dead” will become AMC’s fourth original series with a six-episode order.

“Dead,” based on Robert Kirkman’s popular graphic novels, has been on the fact track ever since AMC acquired the rights to the books in August after a bidding war.

The project, written and directed by Frank Darabont, was ordered to pilot in January, followed by the early series pickup with the pilot still in the casting stages.

“Dead” will begin production in June in Atlanta. The series is set to premiere in October 2010 during AMC’s Fearfest, the network’s annual marathon of thriller and horror films.

Kirkman serves as an executive producer alongside Darabont, Gale Anne Hurd, David Alpert.

Joining the show as exec producer is Charles “Chic” Eglee (“Dexter”).

“AMC strives to make original shows that play like movies and ‘The Walking Dead’ is a perfect complement to the network’s celebrated movie franchise, Fearfest, which has always been an important destination for our audience,” said AMC president Charlie Collier. “With its depth of story and the remarkable talent attached, The Walking Dead gives us an opportunity to raise the bar significantly within this popular genre, and continue our commitment to being the home of premium programming on basic cable.”

Mad Men Barbie Dolls – Now you can play with Christina Hendricks

Posted by LiveFor on March 11, 2010


The dolls are part of a premium-price collectors’ series for adults that Mattel calls the Barbie Fashion Model Collection. Although there have been Barbies and Kens based on other TV series, among them “I Love Lucy” and “The X-Files,” the dolls will be the first licensed line for that collection, Mattel says, with a suggested retail price of $74.95 each.

Mattel is licensing rights to the characters from Lionsgate, the studio that produces “Mad Men” for the AMC cable channel. There will be 7,000 to 10,000 copies of each doll, to be sold in specialty stores and on two Web sites, amctv.com and barbiecollector.com.

The characters to become dolls are Don Draper (Jon Hamm), the show’s leading man; his wife, Betty (January Jones); his colleague at the Sterling Cooper agency, Roger Sterling (John Slattery); and Joan Holloway (Christina Hendricks), the agency’s office manager who was Roger’s mistress.

That two dolls represent a relationship outside wedlock, and Don Draper’s propensity for adultery, may be firsts for the Barbie world since the brand’s introduction five decades ago. But for the sake of the Barbie image, her immersion in the “Mad Men” era will go only so far: The dolls come with period accessories like hats, overcoats, pearls and padded undergarments, but no cigarettes, ashtrays, martini glasses or cocktail shakers.

Fright Night heading to remake

Posted by LiveFor on November 12, 2009

fright_night11Mad Men writer-producer Marti Noxon will script DreamWorks Studios’ remake of the 1985 horror comedy Fright Night.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, before her work on the hit AMC series, Noxon was a writer-producer on the bloodsucker series Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel, so fangs and stakes are in her blood.

The original Fright Night, released in 1985, was written and directed by Tom Holland and starred Chris Sarandon, Roddy McDowall and William Ragsdale. Ragsdale played a teenager who discovers his neighbors are vampires.

The new version will keep the comedy-horror tone while modernizing the effects.

January Jones sees The Hungry Rabbit Jumps

Posted by LiveFor on October 28, 2009

gallery_main-1013_january_jones_gq_00January Jones is jumping with rabbits.

The “Mad Men” star has been cast to play the female lead opposite Nicolas Cage in vigilante thriller “The Hungry Rabbit Jumps.” The move follows her casting in the thriller “Unknown White Male.”

“Rabbit” is slated to begin shooting in early December, giving Jones enough of a window before the late-January start of “Unknown White Male.”

The film centers on a man (Cage) who, after a crime is perpetrated on his wife, gets more than he bargained for when he enlists a vigilante group to help him settle the score. Jones will play the wife. “It’s a very meaty role,” Stern said, “not just reactive, but active.”

Roger Donaldson is attached to direct from Robert Tanen’s script.

Jones is best known for playing the seductive suburban mother Betty Draper on “Mad Men.” She has had bit small roles in features but never played a feature lead part. The actress, who is gaining notoriety for a splashy spread in the current issue of GQ (that’s where the photo is from), has a role in The Boat That Rocked aka Pirate Radio and also had a part in the sports tear-jerker “We Are Marshall.”

Christina Hendricks gets Life as We Know It

“Mad Men” co-star Christina Hendricks is set to star alongside Katherine Heigl and Josh Duhamel in Warner Bros. romancer Life as We Know It (plus she’s recently worn a corset on the cover of NY Magazine) and is on the cover of Esquire magazine.

Hendricks was also in Firefly, but I always wonder which comic book character she should play – Power Girl maybe? Anyone else agree or have any other suggestions? Would she make a good Catwoman – go vote in our poll if you think she would.

Greg Berlanti will direct Life As We Know It and will start shooting in Autumn.

The film follows two unattached adults whose worlds are turned upside down when their mutual best friends die in an accident and name them as caregivers of their orphaned daughter. Hendricks will portray the best friend to Heigl’s and Duhamel’s characters.

Heigl and her mother Nancy Heigl are exec producing the film.

Hendricks will soon be seen alongside Emily Mortimer in the indie drama Leonie.

Update: Now it looks as if fellow Mad Man hottie, January Jones, is heading to the big screen – more here (she should really do her jacket up).

Here is a pic of Hendricks at the 2010 Golden Globes. Check out the winners.
