Patrick J. Adams, Jake McDorman & James Lafferty Mask Up For 'The Right Stuff' Premiere

Patrick J. Adams, Jake McDorman and James Lafferty all step out for the premiere of their new Disney+ series, The Right Stuff, held at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, Calif., on Monday (October 5).

The three actors masked up for the event, where they were joined by their co-stars Eloise Mumford, Shannon Lucio, Nora Zehetner, Micah Stock, and Patrick Fischler.

In a recent interview, Patrick opened up about how he almost wrote to Annie Glenn while he was researching to play her husband, John Glenn, in the groundbreaking series. But, he didn’t.

“I wrote, like, about six different letters on my computer but every time it came down to send one I thought, ‘I think it’s best to just leave Annie Glenn,’ to have what ended up being her final year in peace,” he shared with ET Canada. “So I hope we did it justice and I hope somewhere they are looking down and that she looks positively on it, but I thought it best to leave her be.”

Patrick also revealed that while he had hopes of going to space, being an astronaut wasn’t a real dream for him.

“I always dreamed of going to space, but certainly never felt like I had what it took. I didn’t have ‘the right stuff,’ so to speak, to get up there,” he said.

The Right Stuff premieres on Friday, October 9 on Disney+.

If you missed it, James just announced some big news in his personal life!

Nat Geo Releases First Look at 'The Right Stuff' Series; To Debut on Disney+ This Fall

The first look at Nat Geo’s upcoming space series, The Right Stuff, has been released.

The upcoming show is produced by Leonardo DiCaprio’s Appian Way and stars Patrick J. Adams, Jake McDorman, Colin O’Donoghue, Aaron Staton, James Lafferty, Micah Stock, and Michael Trotter.

Here’s the official summary: At the height of the Cold War in 1959, the Soviet Union dominates the space race. To combat a national sentiment of fear and decline, the U.S. government conceives of NASA’s Project Mercury, igniting a space race with the Soviets and making instant celebrities of a handful of the military’s most accomplished test pilots.

These individuals, who come to be known as the Mercury Seven, are forged into heroes long before they have achieved a single heroic act. The nation’s best engineers estimate they need several decades to make it into outer space. They are given two years.

The Right Stuff, based on Tom Wolfe book of the same name, is set to premiere on Disney+ this fall.

See the first look and images from the series below!

Jillian Bell Gets Support from Tobey Maguire at 'Brittany Runs a Marathon' Premiere!

Jillian Bell happily strikes a pose with Tobey Maguire while attending premiere of her Amazon Studios’ film Brittany Runs A Marathon held at Regal LA Liveon on Thursday (August 15) in Los Angeles.

The 35-year-old actress and Tobey, 44, who is an executive producer of the film, were joined at the event by co-stars Lil Rel Howery, Michaela Watkins, Utkarsh Ambudkar, Alice Lee, Micah Stock and Nadia Quinn, as well as Amazon Studios head Jennifer Salke, writer-director Paul Downs Colaizzo and real-life inspiration of the film, Brittany O’Neill.

Downs, Insatiable‘s Arden Myrin and Camp Camp‘s Dante Basco.

Synopsis: Hilarious, outgoing and always up for a good time, New Yorker Brittany Forgler (Jillian) is everybody’s best friend ― except maybe her own. At 27, her hard-partying ways, chronic underemployment and toxic relationships are catching up with her, but when she stops by a new doctor’s office to try to score some Adderall, she gets slapped with a prescription she never wanted: Get healthy. Too broke for a gym and too proud to ask for help, Brit is at a loss, until her seemingly together neighbor Catherine pushes her to lace up her Converse sneakers and run one sweaty block. The next day, she runs two. And soon, after finishing her first mile, she sets an almost unthinkable goal: running in the New York City Marathon.

Amazon Studios is set to release Brittany Runs a Marathon in theaters on August 23 – Watch the trailer here!

Jake McDorman and Joe Dempsie will star in The Right Stuff!

The 32-year-old Shameless actor and the 31-year-old Game of Thrones star have both signed on for the National Geographic scripted series inspired by Tom Wolfe’s bestselling nonfiction novel, Deadline reports.

Jake McDorman plays Alan Shepard, “one of the best test pilots in Navy history, who is furiously competitive”; Joe Dempsie plays Lt. Gordon Cooper, “the youngest of the seven who was selected to everyone’s surprise”; Patrick J. Adams plays Maj. John Glenn, “a revered test pilot and committed family man with unwavering principles”; Aaron Staton plays Wally Schirra, “a competitive pilot with a gift for pulling pranks”; Michael Trotter plays Gus Grissom, “a no-nonsense test pilot who eventually becomes the second man in space”; Micah Stock plays Deke Slayton, “a taciturn but incredibly intelligent pilot and engineer”; and James Lafferty plays Scott Carpenter, “a soulful man who was dubbed ‘The Poet’ by the other astronauts.”

Production will kick off this fall in Cocoa Beach, Fla., for a 2020 global premiere on National Geographic.
