    Why TV?

  • Robert

    Wow, she is looking wonderful!!

  • Jess

    Sounds really interesting!

  • kace


  • Matty

    The character description from another site it: Sonya North is described as a dogged cop who lacks tact, warmth and empathy. CLEARLY this is a case of amazing type casting!


  • H

    Waiting for the spammer-troll.

  • kathmigi

    future aniston

  • pace

    most b’ful woman on tv if ever

  • GGGive

    she is great! she deserves better than a tv show.. but good luck anyway

  • Rob

    She needs to invest in some bangs.

  • lol

    NO Jared I´m not excited. Her dry, cold aura on screen just would kill me. I have difficulties to just look at her picture for a few seconds.

  • Peapo

    Darn I gave lol a thumbs up when I meant it to be down. They don’t deserve any thumbs up for their nasty comment.

    I love Diane but cannot picture her with a Texas accent. I suppose they don’t HAVE to give an accent. But I can’t picture talking in anything but a German accent. I figure she’ll nail it.

  • Happy_Evil_Dude

    Well at least if she’s on a TV show, people will stop claiming that she doesn’t have a career because they can’t comprehend that there are movies that aren’t made in the US.

    @Peapo: she speaks flawless English, no German accent.

  • baba

    I see this woman ugly and unpleasant maintain the rating of a tv show this program will certainly sink like his films B

  • wa

    i guess that baby, joshua jackson wants so badly has to wait?

  • ddd

    What baby? Are you kidding?

  • nelly

    she is really a busy beel. She makes movies in FRANCE and the US. and now she’s going to add television work? damn girl, slow down.

  • CF98


    What? Nobody is going to say he already has a certain 6 year old running around

    ; )

  • nelly

    * a busy bee

  • ddd

    @nelly: She won´t. Giving her current situation the best thing she could do is to work as much as possible.

  • Jane

    She landed a job? Good for her!

    Lets hope this means, Diane is going to attend less events (which is what she’s known for). She’s become a professional at posing for the cameras.

  • laura

    Diane on a weekly basis? Sweet!

  • clémontine

    oh classe! J’adore Diane Kruger

  • Eve

    I can’t stand her. She always plays the Ice Queen, out of reach and cold. She never shows her warm side. Dunno what to think of her.

  • astrid


    uh,….she makes a lot of movies each year. just go and check her imdb page.
    she has 2 movie coming out and she is working on an other one with terrence mallick!
    but she often makes frenche movies, that’s why you barely see her in movies. but people from europe like me, we are used to seeing her on the big screen, she is really, famous in france.

  • mary

    any tv show has more audience than his movies have of box office

  • mary


    The film’s director is AJ Edwards, not Terrence Malick

  • Piper


    She’s here!!!!

  • mode

    That is quite brilliant casting for the role of Saga Noren or whatever the comparable role is in this remake. This makes me even more excited for the series!

  • dean

    yay! cant wait

  • eric

    So FX is remaking The Bridge! All right! Plus they got some Homeland writers to work on it. Plus Diane Kruger!

  • shattered

    And now I’ll be checking this show out.

  • samrob

    diane on a show! imagine if joshua jackson guest starred in one episode.

  • girish

    She’s far too talented and gorgeous for this.

  • ian

    that’s a hell of a get

  • tara

    Oh wow. Meredith Stiehm who wrote Homeland’s brilliant The Weekend ep adapted the Bridge and Diane Kruger’s going to star? Nice.

  • Jon

    Any age given to the partner?
    Might I suggest: Wilmer Valderama, Michael Peña, William Levy or Freddy Rodriguez.
    or Freddie Prinze Jr., Ricardo Chavira, Rafael Amaya, Eduardo Verastegui, or Gabriel Soto.

  • sharon

    If the FX pilot makes it to series, she’ll be one seriously busy lady, that is, if she keeps up her feature work on the side.
