Actress Cynthia Addai-Robinson, best known for her turn as nurse Debbie Hurst on ABC’s short-lived sci-fi mystery series “FlashForward,” is stepping into (and most likely out of) Slave Naevia’s robes on season two of Starz’ hit series “Spartacus: Blood and Sand.”
Robinson inherits the role from fan fav Lesley-Ann Brandt, who announced back in February that she was leaving the show to secure a recurring role on the CBS crime procedural “CSI: NY” and to pursue other endeavors.
“Spartacus: Blood and Sand” is the second high-profile project Robinson has landed. In September, she will star opposite Zoe Saldana in producer Luc Besson’s latin-flavored revenge thriller Colombiana.
DreamWorks has released the first full-length trailer for producer/director Michael Bay’s Transformers: Dark of the Moon. The footage previewed features plenty of impressive Autobot/Decepticon action, but disappoints in its lack of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley bent over a vehicle shots.
The film’s synopsis reads:
When a mysterious event from Earth’s past erupts into the present day it threatens to bring a war to Earth so big that the Transformers alone will not be able to save us.
Stunt-woman-turned-actress Tara Macken is the latest to join Lionsgate’s big screen adaptation of author Suzanne Collins’ young-adult series “Hunger Games.” The exotic 27-year-old newcomer will portray a District 4 tribute.
Hunger Games finds child survivors of an economically and socially collapsed America competing in televised games of death in a new country named Panem. Two kids from each of Panem’s 12 districts are chosen by lottery each year to participate.
