It was bound to happen - BBC creating its answer to Game of Thrones
With all of our iPhones and internet and what not, we sure love living in the past. We can't get enough of mud and arrows and sexy Viking types and don't TV execs know it. It's come as no surprise therefore, that BBC are developing their own take on the the medieval trend.
BBC America have announced that they'll be bringing Bernard Cornwell's series of books The Saxon Stories to life. Blending fictional characters with real historical events, it's no anything-goes Game of Thrones but it sounds fascinating. The author is well known for his Sharp series which was also adapted for the screen and starred Mr. Blood and Mud himself Sean Bean. It was a hee-uge success and we expect that The Last Kingdom (as the new series will be known) will follow suit.
It Was Bound To Happen (UPDATE: But It’s Not Going To Happen)
Since most of Hollywood is sneezing out babies everywhere, it was only a matter of time before Jennifer Foreveralone-iston gets in on the dirty diaper action. CORRECTION: It was only a matter of time before a magazine reports that Jennifer Aniston is getting in on the dirty diaper action. Star Magazine is saying that Jennifer has made space in her Cabbage Patch nursery for a real-life baby friend from Mexico!!! Mexico is Jennifer’s favorite locale to sun her nipples while miserably weeping into a Corona bottle, so it’s the perfect place for her to get a baby of her very own. And apparently, Jennifer volunteers at an orphanage there. A source claims Jennifer has already signed the adoption papers.
UPDATE: Shit. Just as I hit publish, Jennifer’s rep told People that Star Magazinemust have ripped this story out of her dream journal, because it’s not true at all.
