".... In FX Pilot ‘The Americans’

I’ve learned that Brothers & Sisters alum Matthew Rhys has landed the male lead opposite Keri Russell in FX‘s period drama pilot The Americans. Created/executive by Joe Weisberg, executive produced by Graham Yost and directed by Gavin O’Connor, the project centers on two KGB spies posing as Americans in suburban Washington, DC in the early 1980s. The arranged marriage of Phillip Jennings (Rhys) and Elizabeth Jennings (Russell) grows more passionate and genuine by the day but is constantly tested by the escalation of the Cold War and the intimate, dangerous and darkly funny relationships they must maintain with a network of spies and informants under their control. The Americans is produced by Fox TV Studios and FX Prods. DreamWorks TV’s Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey are also executive producing. Reps for FX could not be reached for comment Friday night. Brit Rhys is with WME, Management 360 and UK’s United Agents."

Don't let me start with that! :) It's beyond me too but I prefer not to comment on this:

What pisses me more is that Luke is still looking for a job while Marini has landed a role. The homophobia in Hollywood is dreadful :(

Oh, no! He's going to RUIN Scruples for me?!?! Well, f*** that! I have such good memories of the original show. I read the book. I was looking forward to this. Ugh! This is bad news! Oh, well, nothing lost. I will remember the old version and forget about the new one.

I don't know why Luke hasn't resurfaced yet, but I hope he does. Soon! I kind of miss him. :)

LOL! You can always see the show and skip Marini's moments like we do in B&S :)

I cannot NOT watch B&S because of the others, but I haven't grown attached to any of the characters from Scruples yet, so I can pass up on that one. :)

I won't be watching Scruples anyways but Luke is too talented not to get another TV gig. Hope something comes his way soon, Tv wise.

Well, truth be told, I only watched the original version because of Lindsay "The bionic woman" Wagner, who I believe to be a good actress.

But it's not just Marini. Claire Forlani will play Lindsay Wagner's character. And I couldn't stand her in NCIS: LA....

Sigh. I'm too difficult. :)
