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

    maybe it will be one of those strange celeb baby names

  • vanca

    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.

    Diane is VERY pretty!

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

  • barrett

    This is really the type of show that interests me.

  • radijs

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

  • johny

    That seems awesome! I’m SO watching it

  • pfft

    This woman and her paid troll are pathetic.

  • vanden elke

    i wish her all the best

  • cammie

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

  • Jessica


    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.

  • lulumon

    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.

  • danny

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

  • bene

    diane ist der beste Schauspielerin in der ganzen Welt

  • vogue

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

  • Elinor

    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

  • hamlet

    Great choice

  • Caitlim

    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!

  • smith

    it’s GENIUS casting.

  • Sammy

    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.

  • bobby

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

  • Bellabooz

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

  • Sammy


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

  • CF98


    If you believe the conspiracy theorists she probably already has.
