Sounds really interesting!

# 6

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!

most b’ful woman on tv if ever

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

She needs to invest in some bangs.

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.

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 @ 09/20/2012 at 2:03 pm

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.

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

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

What baby? Are you kidding?

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.


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

; )

* a busy bee

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

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.

Diane on a weekly basis? Sweet!

clémontine @ 09/20/2012 at 2:49 pm

oh classe! J’adore Diane Kruger

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.


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.

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


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


She’s here!!!!

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!

yay! cant wait

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

shattered @ 09/20/2012 at 3:09 pm

And now I’ll be checking this show out.

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

She’s far too talented and gorgeous for this.

that’s a hell of a get

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

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.

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.

I am rather excited about this Diane Kruger Bridge remake news.

Diane Kruger as a cop hunting a serial killer…………Awesome!

This will be the best new drama by next year. I’m super excited.

she is a great talent.

21 comments out of 42 are from the same person.

big fan! I just adore the way she carries herself, so classy and sophisticated.
i can’t wait for this show


Amazingly talented

Can’t wait for this!

she’s a flawless human being and a great actress, i wish her the best

i’m sooo happy diane kruger got the leading role!

I like Diane but this spamming has to stop.

Yeah, good for her! Great actress.

the troll is here

the troll is here

she’s a lovely humble and talented woman. So happy!

OMG can’t wait

I really enjoy seeing diane kruger on television as well as on the big screen

I absolutely adore diane! She’s a wonderful actress and I can’t wait for her new show!

excellent news

that’s amazing news! i just love her, she’s a fantastic actress, very talented and gorgeous

diane kruger is off the wall brilliant

diane kruger is perfection!

Knockout woman and actress! Great casting.

I loooooove diane kruger…she’s such a talented and pretty lady
and I have a feeling i will become addicted to her character on her new show…LOL

diane is a national treasure! that acting….wow..just wow!

nice, as long she doesnt stop making movies

sounds good. Count me in on this.

Diane is a talented actress starring in what looks like a very smart TV show with an interesting premise. good for her!

TV is hard work. Joshua Jackson knows that Diane will be working long hours and won’t have much time for him. This is the time that Josh needs to wake up and realize that she doesn’t really want kids with him. He probably thought that after Fringe, they would start trying for a family. He needs to find a woman who can give him what he wants which is a marriage and family. If this show gets picked up and is a hit for the network, then I don’t see this relationship lasting much longer. A person can only take so much, even Josh.

thanks so much for posting this, jared. i will make sure to check this out.

I think she looks great! She’s very talented too!!

This is the time that Josh needs to wake up and realize that she doesn’t really want kids with him.
@Deanna: He realized it a long time ago, IMO. But you don´t have to worry about him. He´s fine. ; )
I´d be more scared about Diane´s anorexia. She needs to take care of herself.

and for those who wonder how katie holmes could have contacted/found joshua jackson after all those years:

katie holmes and diane kruger have the same publicist.

I’ll be checking this out. I has like Diane Kruger, so…it’s a no brainer.

Congratulations, diane! You deserve it, girl. great news and you are so talented!

How shocking, she was cast as a woman who lacks tact, warmth and empathy; I guess it’s real life imitating crappy art. This has to be some kind of a joke, Diane is one of the worst actors I have ever had the displeasure of watching. This show will be a flop, at least a few people who tune in to watch it will discover what we all know, she can’t act and isn’t as beautiful as we have been spoon fed to believe.

Diane Kruger, who was terrific in Tarantino’s Inglourious ********
( nominated for SAG award) and farewell my queen, is perfect for this role!


oh yes, i liked farewell my queen alot. director Jacquot goes straight to the point and that is something I tend to appreciate. Seydoux and Kruger are both great, especially the last one in marie antoinette final moments

no matter how much say she’s pretty, I do not see it

what a beauty with a beautiful new upcoming tv-show! perfect being perfect!

for me she is a skeleton bald, smug, narcissist, shallow ,vain, boring,futile empty with no talent, who uses her personal life to promote herself

@true love:

I doubt Katie would ever contact Josh through Diane’s publicist considering past history. He knows more about her split from Tom than he’ll ever let on. The fact he brought her up after all this time is no coincidence not to me at least.

yes, yes, yes, diane on my tv every week. i like this very much

diane just magnificent

Killerbee @ 09/20/2012 at 6:33 pm

i really like diane kruger’s work. A tremendous actress.

I don’t get it. How on eath can someone be so beautiful?It’s amazing to me. And not only beautiful, but intelligent. talented, stylish …
DIANE i love you fearlessly … invariably …

femme fatale @ 09/20/2012 at 6:48 pm

whatever you do, diane, i’m happy for you, But just DON’T.GET.PREGNANT.
don’t lisen to joshua. He will leave you after you had the baby, just like his father did to him .It runs in the family. Don’t ruin your perfect body!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
kids are messy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

They really should ban the troll.

I don’t find her beautiful and she seems like an ice queen.

as she will be able to act with this face of botox

The troll should mix it up a bit…all of the compliments sound alike…like they are coming from the same person. Who would take the time to ship this woman?????

@zaineb: Are you serious?

ik ben in ieder geval een kijker. super getalenteerd die diane!

She sure gave the most critically acclaimed performance of her career– as Marie Antoinette in the French drama “Farewell, My Queen,”
What a performance! no wonder they gave her a tv-show as the LEAD.

she is not popular!

@true love:

Katie has got some nerve contacting Josh all these years. She is the one who broke off their friendship to be with Tom Cruise and now that she’s divorced, she all of a sudden decides to be friends with him again? Who does she think she is? Josh and Diane have been together for six years. Did Katie ever consider what Diane might think of her contacting him?

I’m not defending Diane as I’m not a fan of hers, but you would think that Katie would have better sense/class in not contacting her ex-boyfriend who has been with another woman for six years.

She will be fantastic in her new tv role!

true love @ 09/20/2012 at 7:46 pm

i know katie has a lot of nerve, but you know joshuajackson personality. He is someone who never seems to get really angry, bitter or resentful. He is an easy-going guy and katie KNOWS that about her ex-boyfriend. She knows that she can call him anytime and he will pick up and be nice to her. Because that’s just the way he is.

Diane Kruger is gorgeous, possibly the best dressed woman in the world and is certainly not lacking for work. Hope she still has time for joshua.


Don’t worry. She will. There is always time for some “joshua jackson lovin”.

Joshua Jackson holds hands with girlfriend Diane Kruger whilst window shopping in Malibu:

Diane Kruger! Luv ya!!!


Eh if he didn’t want to hear from her he could’ve always not taken her call but like I said they’re a lot closer than he’s letting on. I think its not as cut and dry as you think

i watch everything with diane kruger in it (movies and tv). And she never dissapoint!

i watch everything with diane kruger in it (movies and tv). And she never dissapoint!

so i get to see her every week on my tv! YAY!!
but it’s cable right? that means 13 episodes….so she has plenty of time for other things like making movies and of course her darling josh! double YAY!

No talent,balding,plain faced ice queen.

Baby-daddy @ 09/20/2012 at 8:33 pm

That’s AWESOME that Josh and Katie are talking again. Maybe now that Diane has a real job, he can be a proper dad to Suri. Suri deserves a brother or sister, maybe Josh can help out with that!

Why are some of you so mean? Diane is a hard working actress who doesnt do stupid sh*t just to get attention for herself. Look at all of these moron celebrities and what they stoop down to just to get their names current. They leak a crappy porn, or stage a drama for the media and act f*cked up for awhile just to create a comeback story. Personally, If i had to go selecting somebody to have a child with, Diane just might be at the top of my list. She speaks French, German and English fluently, is extremely intelligent and has a face that is so exquisite that most men would break down and want to worship her. Keira Knightley, Zoe Saldana, Jess Alba, Nat Portman, among others dont resort to nonsense just to get attention, and frankly, i respect any actress who sets an example and handles their fame respectably nowdays. So go hate on, losers, cause it sucks to be you much more than Diane.

you are talking about a person who is everyday promoting herself on gossip sites,which is best known for gossip sites and events,and uses her personal life to promote herself

Gossip sites do what they do, she has nothing to do with their decision to post pics and talk about her. wtf? And all celebrities attend events, that is a normal part of being a celeb!

@intric8:you meant: wrinkled face that most men would vomit

@intric8:you meant: wrinkled face that most men would vomit

@Janne See, that’s what i dont get. Maybe you dont care for her as an actress, but why the vitriolic hate? Put that energy to much better use and go after someone like Kim Kardashian, who doesnt deserve anything near here celebrity status or fortune.

atrizes são conhecidas por seus trabalhos em filmes tv teatro e não em eventos de moda She appearing on this kind of site because she uses her personal life to it

Freshierrose @ 09/20/2012 at 11:30 pm

I love her! If you hate its bad karma guys!


Don’t let the haters get a rise out of you. At the end of the day, Diane and Joshua have a great life together and are not even aware of the people who heap criticism upon them for no good reason. They seem incredibly happy and are busy in both their careers and social lives. Living well really is the best form of “STFU” anyone can dish out.

I’m excited to see how the pilot will do. It sounds different from anything she’s tried in the past and could work out very well for her.

Her boyfriend is like a synchopantic puppy dog following her around wherever she goes. That in itself s annoying. She is also a terribly mediocre

@femme fatale:

Patty, that’s just mean.

love this actress. What an honour to be able to watch her on a weekly basis.

Diane is such a sweetheart. She is very cool and i love her relationship with joshua jackson.
He is a great actor, funny & extremely intelligent .. & gorgeous as well!

i’m so jealous of her. Joshua jackson is suppose to be with me! lol!
no, seriously, i like her and Joshua Jackson has a Ewan McGregor thing happening, and it is beyond.

pretty girl and wonderful actress. THANKS FX

true love @ 09/21/2012 at 2:20 am

patty is here AND crazy anna torv troll (juli, janne,intric8,… ) is here too, people! She is spreading the hate and jealousy, because nobody cares about anna and nobody takes paparazzi shots of anna! i’m on to you, troll!

true love @ 09/21/2012 at 2:21 am


here, here!

Diane kruger is really something. Men clearly adore her. Her famous ex-husband (married for 6 years) Guillaume Cannet asked her to marry her and she did. And now beau Joshua Jackson is dying to marry her.
What a woman!

Katie has got some nerve contacting Josh all these years.
@Deanna: don´t believe everything Josh says in interviews, especially when he talks about women. Don´t believe everything celebrities say. Diane said her next project will be “being a mother”. But “The Bridge” doesn´t sound like a baby name, does it?


I second that Freddie Prinze Jr. mention. He’d be great.

@Happy_Evil_Dude: People are stupid. they wouldn’t know what a career is if it hit them in the face. Perhaps because they lack one. Good luck, Diane!


you’re welcome :)

@intric8: Most of the comments are posted by 2 trolls, one praising Diane and the other one berating her. I don’t like trolls of any kind, but the one berating her is the ugliest filthiest one ever. Ew! Disgusting!

true love @ 09/21/2012 at 3:34 am


there are 2 trolls here indeed. the one who’s praising her is the JJ troll aka patty and the other one who is berating her is the anna torv troll.

magnutude @ 09/21/2012 at 3:37 am

Pretty interesting casting/premise that I’ll be keeping my eye on

@true love: What is an Anna Torv troll doing here? Her job is to hate on Joshua Jackson. I think there are two Anna Torv trolls though.

true love @ 09/21/2012 at 4:11 am


That anna torv troll hates joshua jackson and his girlfriend diane kruger. She comes her all the time. She is jealous, because anna gets no love.

I haven’t seen Kruger in much so I can’t comment on her acting but she has a lot to live up to – Sofia Helin was spectacular in the original version.


oh yes, i recall that interview. You mean this one ( at the 2:35 mark):

oh well, she clearly wasnt serious about it. And maybe she never wants children, who knows. It’s very hard for a woman to admit you don’t want to have kids.

I’m thrilled at the prospect of having Diane Kruger on TV every week.

email me maybe @ 09/21/2012 at 5:24 am

@scarlett: I feel sorry for spouses of celebs. They will always be damned to that stupid criticism “following him/her around like a puppy dog”.

email me maybe @ 09/21/2012 at 5:26 am

@heh!: Tnx for that heads up :-/

Wait a second guys, is it possible that the good troll might actually also be the bad troll? It looks horrible if someone spams a million lame positive comments without being creative. It’s like super-obvious fake support, which looks bad for the celeb in question. Just thinkin..

@intric8: No. Patty’s style is clearly different from the other two.

I’m glad that she’s doing a cable network television show. I know that sounds kind of pretentious, but I feel that the best shows on TV at the moment are on HBO, FX, AMC and Showtime.

Excited! She’ll do well.

@heh!: Ah, ok. U wanna see a classic troll blunder, check out the beginning of the last amanda seyfried post here on jj – ROFL!

Diane Kruger is my favorite actress!.I can’t wait to see the pilot

Stupid spammer, cut it out!

Something about her, very good looking. I’ve liked her in the movies I’ve seen her in. Inglorious ********, Unknown.


maybe it will be one of those strange celeb baby names

looks interesting.

Peut-être Joshua Jackson, la star de Fringe, a-t-il conseillé sa compagne Diane Kruger ? En tout cas l’actrice, habituée du grand écran, vient d’accepter de tenir elle aussi le premier rôle d’une nouvelle série. En tous cas, je n’avais jamais penser que diane pu faire du télé.


Sofia Helin’s portrayal of Saga in the original is hilarious and heartbreaking in equal measure. It’s a lot to live up to. I’m dubious about the merit of this since the Swedish series is so utterly perfect but I’d be willing to give it a chance. The UK are also co-producing a remake with France.

Diane Kruger is A-MA-ZING

@lola: I agree. They’ve picked up some of the best writers. This is exactly why movies have basically sucked over the last year or two.

Gerardo Naranjo doesn’t have a large enough body of work to help us judge whether his work in this series will be a slamdunk or not. I’m hoping he nails it. In terms of roles, this should at least give her more latitude. Hoping the best for her.

television seems to be experiencing a renaissance at the moment.

/JJtrollbot:negcom @ 09/21/2012 at 8:40 am

Diane is not pretty!

/JJtrollbot:poscom @ 09/21/2012 at 8:41 am

Diane is VERY pretty!

Gorgeous! Can’t wait for real talent to come to the small screen !!
She deserves all the success.

This is really the type of show that interests me.

She is amazing and gorgeous. This is going to be an amazing Hit.

That seems awesome! I’m SO watching it

This woman and her paid troll are pathetic.

vanden elke @ 09/21/2012 at 9:20 am

i wish her all the best

This show will for sure be on my must see list! Can’t wait to see how this turns out.


If they’re just friends I don’t see the issue maybe she wanted to reconnect with someone she’s known for a long time?


Diane Kruger most likely has no idea of the craziness that surrounds her persona on this site. I imagine she would find it hilarious like any sane person witnessing extreme craziness should.

I actually don’t think the Diane troll is Patty. The troll’s posts are all positive while Patty’s are mostly angry. The tones just don’t match up. Plus, Patty only cares about how Joshua is being mistreated. I don’t think she cares at all about Diane, at least not enough to spam her threads in this way.

This isn’t a paid troll. Sounds like an overzealous foreign fan dont you guys think? Could also be someone just trying to be a pain in the butt.

It’s not a paid troll. It’s simply Patty. :(

diane ist der beste Schauspielerin in der ganzen Welt

Absolutely gorgeous human being. I
I certainly will watch it.

It seems Josh leaves the TV, and Diana goes there, LOL.
I’d love to see him every week at my home, than her, but god luck to Diane, anyway

Great choice

Her bones are sticking out far to much in that picture! Very pretty , quite plain , average acting thus far!

Her bones are sticking out far to much in that picture! Very pretty , quite plain , average acting thus far!

Diane should try theatre too one day. That would be so amazing. She can do it all!

it’s GENIUS casting.

Most of the comments on this thread are truly disgusting, that one person must have no life. I’m not a fan of Diane nor do I know enough about her to really care. I do know that what I read whenever her name is on this site is enough to turn me away from anything she may do.

wow, great news! vShe is a great addition to the small screen. Can’t hardly wait!

Bellabooz @ 09/21/2012 at 4:53 pm

She’s honestly just gorgeous. Seems pretty down to earth, too.


Maybe Katie could give Josh the child he so badly wants, apparently Diane will be too busy promoting herself.


If you believe the conspiracy theorists she probably already has.
