Now, I must admit that the casting for this one looks terrible or hilarious (admittedly the budget is just 100,000 pounds) to say the least, but who

Poldark Season 4

   ‘POLDARK’ SEASON 4
STARTS NEXT SUNDAY AT BBC!
Are you excited people? The fourth, and most probably the penultimate, season of popular British period set saga POLDARK starts its eight episode run next Sunday, June 10th on BBC, and for the viewers in Northern America on PBS Masterpiecelater next Autumn September 30th! Everybody’s favourite Captain Ross Poldark will, as he himself admits, sell his soul and go into politics after refusing to do so in previous three seasons. Tough times require drastic measures.
Season four starts Sunday, June 10th at BBC
SEASON FOUR OF POLDARK
set in the 18th century Cornwall will see Ross (Aidan Turner) putting himself as a political rival to his dastardly enemy George Warleggan (Jack Farthing), and possibly moving to London. Turmoil will rule in his private life as well after his shameless adulteress wife Demelza (Eleanor Tomlinson) has cold-heartedly cheated on him with Hugh Armitage (Josh Whitehouse), a man whose life Ross saved by heroically risking his own which obviously did not mean much to his flimsy wife. She is obviously still torn between her loving husband and a lovesick Hugh, who is set to rival George in the upcoming election but due to his poor health Ross will obviously have to take over his candidacy and chalange George himself. Their friends Dwight and Caroline Enyse (Luke Norris and Gabriella Wilde) contemplate having a child and the love of Ross’ youth Elizabeth (Heida Reed) seeks the same to secure her marriage with his biggest enemy Warleggan who still does not know their son Valentine is not his but Poldark’s. Meanwhile, their ex nanny Morwenna (Ellise Chappell) uses her husband Osborne’s (Christian Brassington) affair with her sister Rowella (Esme Coy) to keep the reverend’s advances at bay! Harry Richardson and Tom  York return as Demelza’s brothers Drake and Sam ready for a lot of new trouble with law. Series four will cover the happenings until the Christmas period of 1799. The fifth season will probably start with a ten year jump.

VILLAINOUS MONK ADDERLEY

When it comes to new faces in the cast, Max Bennett joins the crew as a villainous member of parliament Monk Adderley who takes a particular interest in Demelza! He is an unscrupulous and very vivid society figure without conscience and loyalty.

FORMIDABLE LADY WHITWORTH

Meanwhile, Rebecca Front also joins the cast as Lady Whitworth, formidable mother of perverse reverend Osborne who does not care that her son loves to suck female toes in his free time. The arrival of his overbearing mother will bring more trouble to Morwenna.

Catch 22 (WW2 series on Hulu)

‘CATCH 22’ WW2 SERIES

GATHERS A HANDSOME SQUAD

 George Clooney is producing CATCH 22 World War 2 television series based on Joseph Heller‘s novel, and that he is also directing and starring in it, but now the rest of the cast has been revealed as well and brace yourself – it is filled with tons of super handsome boys. George Clooney and Kyle Chandler will play their colonels.
Christopher Abbott leads the cast!

 

WHAT’S THE CATCH?

Hulu’s ten episode series will be set in Italy during World War II, following incomparable, artful dodger Yossarian (Christopher Abbott), a bombardier for the U.S. Air Force, who is furious
because thousands of people he has never met are trying to kill him. But his real problem is not the enemy, but rather his own army which keeps increasing the number of missions the men must fly to complete their service. Yet if Yossarian makes any attempt to avoid his military assignments, he’ll be in violation of CATCH 22, a hilariously sinister bureaucratic rule which specifies that a concern for one’s own safety in the face of dangers which are real and immediate is the process of a rational mind; a man is considered insane if he willingly continues to fly dangerous combat missions, but a request to be removed from duty is evidence of sanity and therefore makes him ineligible to be relieved from duty.
Kyle Chandler will play Colonel Cathcart

 

WHO’S IN THE SQUADRON?

Daniel David Stewart will play Milo, a quintessential Brooklyn native, possessed with the fierce determination and charm to bring his grand plans to fruition. Milo is a war profiteer who has figured out how to put himself in the Mess hall supervisor position in order to begin his trading syndicate.

Austin Stowell will portray Nately, Yossarian’s closest friend. He is someone who had lived his young life without trauma and is in love with Clara, a prostitute in Rome. R

 

Rafi Gavron will play Aarfy, Yossarian’s navigator who is frequently lost. When he starts recounting stories we get a glimpse into his darker mind and soon see it manifest on a weekend away.

 

Graham Patrick Martin will portray Orr, Yossarian’s tentmate, and pilot of another plane in Yossarian’s squadron. Orr is very well liked and has a goofy demeanour; he is also a great handyman who has a specific skill set to see him through the war.

 

Pico Alexander will play Clevinger, the pilot of another plane. He and Yossarian enjoy each other’s company, yet each believes the other is a fool for holding the worldview he holds.

 

 

Jon Rudnitsky is McWatt, Yossarian’s pilot. He is a prankster who in his spare time likes to fly too low to any and all structures. He thinks he understands how world works and is not afraid to give his opinions about it.

 

 

 

Gerran Howell will play Kid Sampson, McWatt’s shy, boyish co-pilot, whose unspectacular and unremarkable life will end, spectacularly and remarkably, at McWatt’s hands. 

 

Lewis  Pullman is Major Major, an Air Corps Cadet who later becomes Squadron Commander. He has never had friends and tries to figure out the best way to go unnoticed through the war.
