Simon Baker, the Australian star of CBS’s incredibly popular The Mentalist, is headed to the big screen in the critically acclaimed feature film, Margin Call with a staggering ensemble casts that includes Demi Moore, Kevin Spacey, Paul Bettany, Penn Badgley, Jeremy Irons, and Zachary Quinto.
Showtime's The Borgias, starring Jeremy Irons as the ruthless 15th-century Pope Alexander VI and Montreal actor Francois Arnaud as his equally scheming son, Cesare Borgia, returned for its second season on Sunday night after almost a year's hiatus.
Showtime’s latest attempt to make premium programming look more like cinema comes in the form of The Borgias, a new series about notorious 15th century Pope Alexander VI and his homicidal family.
Simon Baker, 42, may star in the new critically acclaimed Margin Call about the financial crisis, but he had to rely on research to brush up for the role. "I pretty much have my head in the sand when it comes to the financial world, so I had a very steep learning curve," he said in an exclusive with Uinterview.
Demi Moore, 48, has been in the news for more than her new anticipated movie, Margin Call, lately, with the rumors of her dissolving marriage to Ashton Kutcher gaining momentum. Monday night, Moore arrived solo at the premiere for the new movie, a thriller about the activity in an investment bank during the early hours of a financial crisis, which features a star-studded cast, including Kevin Spacey, Jeremy Irons, Zachary Quinto, Stanley Tucci, Paul Bettany and Simon Baker.
The Borgias wrapped up its first season with the episode "Nobody,” concluding Showtime’s newest hit series, this one depicting the quasi-history of the Borgias papacy. Oscar winner Jeremy Irons stars as Rodrigo Borgia, the conniving patriarch who buys, bribes, and threatens his way into power.
