I'd be happy to :) . No definite date as yet, just Summer 2014, but here's the trailer - brought to you by the good men and women who created Homeland:

I looked to see whether there were any clips from Accused, and found this.



The International Emmy Awards ceremony is November 25th. I hope he wins :) .

:yay: At last!

I didn't see anybody else's work, but that little clip of him as Tracie, is so powerful. Way to go, Mr. Bean :yes: !

I've been watching Legends from the beginning and I'm hooked.

Bean plays Martin Odum, an undercover FBI agent who changes himself into a different person - or legend - for each case. The trouble is a 3 week blank in his memory. The people close to him insist that he'd been in a coma from a car accident, but he's also had run-ins with guys who are telling him that he's part of a special unit that he has no memory of being in.

In addition, his 'legends' have this tendency to bleed into one another. So, he'll be one individual, when suddenly his whole character will change into someone else (his wife divorced him after going through some of that, and who can blame her.)

The episodes are raw and take-no-prisoners. In one of them, he is forced to kill a man to prove his loyalty. You can see him attempting to stall, hoping that the cavalry will step in and make the murder unnecessary, but nobody does, and it unnerves him. Odum does have opportunities of tenderness with his son, his ex and the people he cares about, but they are few and I treasure them.

It's not the kind of show that I would normally gravitate to, but I couldn't pass up on it when I saw who was in the lead, and I'm watching.

According to several newspapers, Sean is to marry for a 5th time... :roll: Will he ever learn that his relationships go downhill from the moment he marries? :roll: I guess not.... :D However, I wish him luck this time, because his girlfriend seems to be a nice person, and from what I've seen, I actually like her. I doubt she's only 29, though. I've seen pictures, and to me, she looks like she's in her forties... (much better for him!)

I had to peek, and I think you're right, Paddy. But, five times...oy!

One of my dad's sisters was married seven times, and she's still living :lol: (she's a half-sister, and while I was growing up, I always thought that she looked like Zsa-Zsa's and Marilyn Monroe's love child.)

Well, best of luck to the both of them :cheers: .

This is so very, very good about Boromir, and I must admit that I never appreciated him as much as I should. Please read...

FYRichard III is one of my favorite tumblr sites (she teaches uni-level English lit. and just finished up with Richard III and Tolkien (what I wouldn't give to have been in her class!)

more about Boromir...


...Many people seem to think that Boromir is a quote-on-quote "bad character" or "morally grey" because he makes literally one mistake, which is ironic considering the one mistake he does make is the same mistake that we are told throughout all the Lord of the Rings films is only too easy to succumb to--almost no one can resist the power of the Ring.

And besides that, the only reason that Boromir even desired the Ring in the first place was for the sake of saving the people of Gondor, because he was such a pure-hearted and just man, and after the Ring takes him and he lashes out at Frodo, he shows IMMENSE remorse, and is seen next calling out softly for Frodo and sobbing on the forest floor, saying he is sorry. When next we see him, he runs to the aid of Merry and Pippin when they are ambushed by the Uruk-hai pack heading for Isengard, and he defends them with his life, fighting even after he has been shot by an arrow multiple times (in severely vulnerable locations, I might add).

With his final breaths, he tells Aragorn that he would've followed him as his captain and king, and we see that he has not forgiven himself for what happened with Frodo even as he draws his final breath. Do not ever insult Boromir in front of me. Ever. Be at peace, son of Gondor. I'm sobbing.
