Seated in a chair, Graham McTavish was trying to remain as motionless as possible as makeup artists morphed him into his evil character on the AMC series “Preacher”: the Cowboy, aka the Saint of Killers.
The actor, who played the super-entertaining character of Angus on the Starz series (also, RIP Angus) is working alongside fellow Outlander actor Andrew Gower (Prince Charles Edward Stuart) on a new documentary entitled Humpty Dumpty that is all about the life of one Tommy Quickly. He’s a man who is relatively forgotten in the world of music today, but he was a Liverpool artist with many connections to The Beatles, largely because of the presence of manager Brian Epstein.
Lionsgate is negotiating with Outlander star Sam Heughan for the male lead opposite Kate McKinnon and Mila Kunis in The Spy Who Dumped Me, an Imagine Entertainment comedy that Susanna Fogel will direct from the script she wrote with David Iserson. Brian Grazer is producing. The pic shoots this summer for release on July 6, 2018.
McKinnon and Kunis will play best friends who unwittingly become entangled in an international conspiracy when one of the women discovers the boyfriend who dumped her actually was a spy. That’s where Heughan comes in. The Scottish actor has established himself in the role of Jamie Fraser in the Starz series Outlander, and this becomes his first big starring role in a Hollywood feature.
The film is being overseen by Lionsgate’s Peter Kang and Geoff Shaevitz and Imagine’s Erica Huggins and Julie Oh, the latter of whom brought in the project. Heughan is repped by Ruth Young at United Agents, UTA, and attorney Steve Warren.
Looks like 2017 is looking bright for fans. Not only is Outlander supposed to come back sometime in 2017 but Tobias will be starring in The Terror on AMC (based on the 2007 bestselling novel by Dan Simmons). I don't know about you but I've had enough Jack Randall to last me a lifetime; however, I could always use some more Tobias in my tv line-up and we are going to get it.
I have to be honest, when I read the headline announcing this, I had no clue what it meant except it sounded big for Sam. Then I read the article and got it. See Barbour is an English luxury fashion brand founded by John Barbour in 1894, that designs, manufactures and markets weatherproofed outerwear, ready-to-wear, leather goods, shoes and accessories for men, women and children under the Barbour brand. You can see their 120 year timeline HERE.
Barbour International was founded by John Barbour (as it says above) who lived only a short distance away from where Sam grew up in Galloway.
Working with our design team Sam will also develop his own signature capsule collection incorporating our renowned exclusive tartans, which are based on the Ayrshire District Tartan from where the Barbour family originated in the 13th century.
THE Scots actor, who plays Dougal MacKenzie in the Starz show, said it was a "dream come true" to be involved in AMC's new Preacher series.
OUTLANDER fans will have seen Graham McTavish make his long-awaited return to their screens in the latest instalment of the time travel series.
And the Scots actor, who plays Dougal MacKenzie in the Starz show, has revealed his involvement in AMC's new Preacher series.
The American show, which is adapted from DC's comic book series, was developed by Evan Goldberg, Seth Rogen and Sam Catlin and first aired on May 22.
McTavish has regularly spoken of his love of the comics and says his role in the show is "a dream come true".
He tweeted: "After months of not being able to tell anyone delighted to announce my involvement in @PreacherAMC. As a fan of the books...a dream come true".
Caitriona Balfe joins cast of new action/thriller movie 'Trust No One'
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D actors Brett Dalton and Simon Kassianides star in the movie and are raising funds to make the film through Kickstarter
$65k to be raised before filming begins this summer
Elizabeth Henstridge, also from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D is among the first of the movie's backers
Caitriona Balfe, winner of a Saturn Award and and Golden Globe nomination for her role as Claire Beauchamp in Outlander, is joining a star cast of young actors making an action/thriller movie funded through Kickstarter.
Trust No One has been written by Simon Kassianides, who will direct and act in the film when shooting begins this summer. No stranger to the action/thriller genre, Kassianides played Eva Green's treacherous lover Yusuf opposite Daniel Craig's Bond in Quantum of Solace. More recently, Kassianides appeared as agent Bakshi in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D where he met Brett Dalton, who stars as agent Grant Ward. The pair enjoyed working together so much they decided to make their own movie.
"Films like Bond, The Bourne Identity, Mission Impossible and Ronin have all been an inspiration for the film's action sequences," explained Kassianides. "But the big difference with this movie is that the combat scenes aren't between trained assassins. They are between ordinary men and women, fighting for their lives in an extreme situation."
