  • cheche

    sounds good. Count me in on this.

  • ben

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

  • Deanna

    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.

  • shleik

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

  • elke

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

  • true love
  • ddd

    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.

  • true love

    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.

  • hamm

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

  • senior

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

  • Peg

    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.

  • xavier

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

  • noemié

    @xavier:

    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

  • juli

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

  • timothy

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

  • juli

    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

  • CF98

    @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.

  • gerard

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

  • OH

    diane just magnificent

  • Killerbee

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

  • zaineb

    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

    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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Anon

    They really should ban the troll.

  • Adam

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

  • Lucy

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

  • Adam

    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?????

  • Cerise

    @zaineb: Are you serious?

  • babette

    cool!

  • else

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

  • olga

    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.

  • juli

    she is not popular!

  • Deanna

    @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.

  • kikker

    She will be fantastic in her new tv role!
