Idris Elba to Team Up With top DJ Jax Jones for a Dance Anthem!

Posted on January 11th, 2018 at 5:29 am by    

And while still on the subject of James Bond favorites… Idris Elba will make his debut into mainstream music later this year. 

With the forthcoming series of Luther rumoured to be the last, the actor and part-time DJ could be stepping away from TV to focus on his love of music. Oo-er!

Idris – who stars in Hollywood blockbuster Avengers: Infinity War this spring – is teaming up with No1 DJ Jax Jones for a huge dance anthem, after bonding backstage at a festival at Eastnor Castle in Herefordshire last summer.

In a recent interview Jax said: “We hung out at El Dorado, he DJ’d after me, he was mad cool and we had a few drinks and stuff, it was pretty chilled we got on straight away.

“And then I saw he had a new film out called Molly’s Game so I went down on the red carpet to support him, we spoke again, got a picture with him and stuff.

“We started chatting about hooking up, he seems interested.

“I pinged him an email with some ideas, so hopefully that can happen this year.” 

Idris will start filming the next season of Luther next month and Avengers is out in April so Jax is hoping they could have a banger ready for festival season.

He said: “It’s always good to have new music for the summer, of course.

“I would love to get Idris just speaking on a record, some sort of social commentary too a bit like Baz Luhrmann’s Wear Sunscreen.”

Plus Idris is also rumoured to be working with king of grime Stormzy after they hung out just before Christmas.

Jax’s latest hit Breathe featuring Ina Wroldsen is out now. 

More updates coming soon!

Could The Rumors James Norton is to Be the Next James Bond Be True?

Posted on January 11th, 2018 at 4:45 am by    

With his cut-glass cheekbones, the sharp dinner jackets, and exotic locations: it’s no surprise that James Norton’s role in McMafia, the BBC One silky new crime drama, has seen him installed this week as the hot favourite to replace Daniel Craig as James Bond. Oo-er!

Bookmaker Coral say Granchester Norton is odds-on favourite to take charge of the franchise next. The firm have given the 32-year-old English actor odds of 1-2 to land the iconic Bond role.

This is despite the fact that Norton claims he hasn’t been approached to play 007. 

John Hill, a spokesperson for Coral, said: “James Norton’s stock as an actor is increasing all the time and we feel it won’t be long before he is approached to replace Daniel Craig as the next 007.”

Norton is followed by Tom Hardy at 7-2 to replace Craig.

After this is The American Hustle‘s Jack Huston (4-1), Polkdark Aidan Turner (12-1), Tom Hiddleston (14-1) and Idris Elba (16-1).

The news comes after a James Bond producer said she “wouldn’t hesitate” to break condition to have a female or black actor play Bond. 

Coral has also given odds of 5-1 that Bond will next be played by a female actress. Please NO!

Bond supremo Babara Broccoli said: “These films tend to reflect the times, so we always try to push the envelope a little bit.”

The producer continued: “Anything is possible. Right now it’s Daniel Craig, and I’m very happy with Daniel Craig, but who knows what the future will bring.”

But while critics call it Norton’s big audition and Twitter hyperventilates, fawning over his bare-chested beach scene, remember we’ve been in this exact spot before, in 2016, when a preening Hiddleston caught the eye as a debonair spy in the not-too-dissimilar-to-McMafia thriller The Night Manager.

After Craig had seemed to announce his retirement from Bond duty with his comment that he would rather slash his own wrists than play the secret agent again, Hiddleston was considered a shoo-in: at one point, betting was even suspended on him taking the role.

But then he began a publicity-ravenous relationship with Taylor Swift, which stripped him of any veneer of cool and unobtainability – essential 007 traits – Broccoli allegedly deemed him too “smug and not tough enough” to play the world’s most famous spy.

Craig, had ruled out returning to the Bond franchise after Spectre.

However, he has agreed to reprise the role for Bond 25.

Speculation is still rife over who his successor will be though.

So, naturally, the question on everyone’s lips is… are we looking at the future 007? Not content that Daniel Craig has signed for the next Bond film, we’re still casting around for his successor, apparently without having agreed exactly what the successful candidate requires.

I shall keep you all posted on this one!

Kate Beckinsale to Star in New Exotic TV Drama The Widow!

Posted on January 4th, 2018 at 6:29 am by    

Hit writers Harry Williams and Jack Williams have enticed sexy British actress Kate Beckinsale with an “ambitious” new script.

The Underworld and Love & Friendship star Beckinsale will take the lead in the new ITV/Amazon Prime Video production called The Widow. Oo-er!

The daughter of the late Porridge actor Richard Beckinsale will play Georgia Wells, who has her life turned upside-down with a telephone call in the middle of the night.

Her husband of more than 10 years, Will, is reported dead after a plane crash in the jungles of Africa. 

Some three years later, Georgia learns something shocking about the disappearance of her spouse.

Believing he may now be alive, she heads to Kinshasa in the Democratic Republic of the Congo in an attempt to uncover the truth.

One of the industry’s hottest writing duos, the Williams brothers said 44-year-old Kate was “perfect” for their gripping storyline, which starts filming later this year.

Jack added: “The Widow is our most ambitious and cinematic piece to date.” 

In a tribute to Kate, he said: “We could not imagine anyone more perfect for the role.”

The pair have a history of getting big names on board for their dramas.

They signed Downton Abbey’s Joanne Froggatt for Liar, bagged Cold Feet’s James Nesbitt, Line Of Duty’s Keeley Hawes and The Walking Dead’s David Morrissey for The Missing and lured Games Of ThronesRichard Dormer for Rellik.

This is a great start to the year for Kate, who is personally one of my favorites!

Neville Longbottom’s Goofy Day’s Are Long Gone! Harry Potter Star Reveals Sexy Six-Pack!

Posted on January 4th, 2018 at 6:08 am by    

Long gone are the days playing goofy teenager Neville Longbottom as Harry Potter actor Matthew Lewis has viewers swooning after making a remarkable transformation in a topless scene in TV hit Girlfriends… Oo-er!

The 28-year-old returned to our screens last night in new ITV series sending the viewing figures through the roof.

And his Longbottom days are clearly behind him as the hunk showed in a topless scene.

His character Tom was seen posing in only his boxers, showing off his muscular physique. 

The scene saw him opposite on-screen mum Zoe Wannamaker – who he also acted alongside in Harry Potter: The Philosopher’s Stone.

It wasn’t long before Twitter was awash with fans in a frenzy swooning over the star.

“Oh hello Neville Longbottom,” one user said. 

Another added: “That weird moment you realise you fancy Neville Longbottom.”

A third disbelieving viewer commented: “I’m not sure Neville Longbottom looked like that in Harry Potter.”

While one user was thankful of the cheeky scene, saying: “Big shout out to the gratuitous nudity of Matt Lewis on Girlfriends.”

Girlfriends follows three friends (Wanamaker, Miranda Richardson and Phyllis Logan) as they struggle with the changes and responsibilities of being a modern woman of a certain age.

The six-part drama continues next Wednesday at 9pm. Can’t wait to see this on U.S television!

BFFs? Cara Delevingne and Paris Jackson Forge a Surprisingly Strong Bond!

Posted on December 28th, 2017 at 2:47 am by    

British model and actress Cara Delevingne and Michael Jackson‘s daughter Paris Jackson raised a few eyebrows when they sneaked out of a nightclub hand in hand by the fire escape at 3am earlier this month. And it’s thought that the pair have grown closer as they spent Christmas together. Oo-er!

I can reveal that Paris and the supermodel hopped between London, Italy and the Czech Republic, where Cara is filming her new Amazon series Carnival Row.

“They really hit it off at the MTV Movie and TV Awards in LA in May and have been hanging out since,” a source told British tabloid The Sun. 

“Cara is quite enamoured by the fact Paris is the daughter of one of her musical heroes. ‘There’s a spark’

“She invited her as guest of honour to her Christmas Burberry X bash in London, before whisking her away to Venice then Prague the weekend after, where they celebrated Christmas early at the markets.

“They’re both really into their music and have been spending nights singing and jamming on the guitar.

“It’s early days, and Cara doesn’t really have time for a proper relationship due to her non-stop filming commitments with Carnival Row, but there’s no denying there’s a spark.” 

On Boxing Day, Paris, who has since joined her brothers Blanket and Prince in Hawaii, shared her first photo of her and a barely recognisable Cara wearing a beanie. 

The picture had been taken during their secret getaway and Paris posted it on Instagram with the lyrics from Home Alone 2’s Christmas Star song.

They included the line “At my journey’s end, will you be my true friend?”

It comes after the two were seen trying their best to leave the Burberry bash at the Glory Bar in Dalston, East London, incognito on December 6 with Cara in a hood and Paris with a scarf around her face.

Hopefully Cara will have more luck with this new friendship than she’s had in the past – the last person she was publicly linked to was bad-boy actor Jack O’Connell, who she dated in 2014, after her break-up with stunning actress Michelle Rodriguez.

Before that she dated singer songwriter Jake Bugg, in 2013 – and turned down an invitation from Leonardo DiCaprio months later.

I shall have to keep a beady eye on this pair!

Lady Victoria Flaunts Her Sexy Abs in a Skimpy Bikini in Barbados!

Posted on December 27th, 2017 at 2:18 pm by    

Lady Victoria Hervey headed for some fun in the sun after Christmas as she frolicked on the beach in Barbados on earlier this week. 

The 41-year-old socialite couldn’t resist flaunting her slender figure in a heavily printed bikini as she topped up her tan. Oo-er!

Victoria looked in her post-Christmas element as she lined the shores in her skimpy bikini which served to accentuate her slim figure. 

The Jump star’s two-piece put focus on her impossibly flat stomach, as well as her long, lean legs. 

Victoria’s long blonde tresses were styled into two braided puns and she shielded her low-key make-up look with gold tinted shades.          

The former Christian Dior model first hit the scenes commanding attention with more than her outfits as a high profile socialite in the late 90s – briefly dipping her toes into reality TV, fashion and journalism.  

However, 2017 has been an amazing year for the stunning blonde after she returned to the small screen on Celebrity Showmance and reality series “Living With” Lady Victoria

I have a feeling 2018 is going to even more successful…Hashtag: #Fingerscrossed!

Meghan Markle Wil Join the Royal Family for Christmas!

Posted on December 21st, 2017 at 5:22 am by    

Meghan Markle certainly knows how to win the peoples hearts that’s for sure… But it would appear she has also won the hearts of the Royal family too according to insiders, by being invited to Queen Elizabeth‘s official Christmas luncheon. Oo-er!

The Queen’s festive lunch at Buckingham Palace is an annual tradition enjoyed by all members of her family – and this year that includes bride-to-be Meghan.

Markle could be seen making her way to the royal party with Prince Harry, who drove them to the Palace on Wednesday afternoon. She chose an elegant lace Self-Portrait dress for the occasion, paired with diamond earrings from Canadian fine jewellery brand Birks.

With a number of royals expected to attend, it’s thought that the event will be an opportunity for Markle to meet Harry’s extended family before they tie the knot in Windsor next year.

The Duke of Cambridge was also pictured driving his family to the lunch, with the Duchess of Cambridge in the passenger seat and Prince George and Princess Charlotte sitting in the back with their nanny.

Many other royals, including the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall, were also due to attend the gathering.

The festive lunch takes place at the Queen’s London residence every year before the monarch leaves the capital for her annual break at Sandringham. It has been confirmed that Prince Harry and Markle will also be joining the family on Christmas Day this year.

The newly-engaged couple are likely to be seen in public again when they attend church on the Queen’s private estate in Norfolk.

Earlier in December, a spokesperson for Kensington Palace said: “You can expect to see the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry and Ms Markle at Sandringham on Christmas Day.”

The are celebrating their recent engagement with the release of their official portrait photographs putting Meghan firmly in the (ahem) frame so to speak… Where the pair appear royally in love in the stunning snaps shared by Kensington Palace on Thursday, which was taken earlier this week at Frogmore House in Windsor by fashion photographer Alexi Lubomirski.

I expect big things from this couple in the years ahead…

Good luck to them! And a Merry Christmas to the loyal readers of Sean Borg Goes LA! and the British Weekly!

John Boyega Wants Lupita Nyong’o to Play Love Interest in New Movie!

Posted on December 14th, 2017 at 6:00 am by    

As Star Wars mayhem grips the world once agian, I can report that British star John Boyega want Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o to play the love of his life in an upcoming movie… Oo-er!

John, who might have ticked off a lot of boxes in the last few years – with starring roles in Star Wars and Pacific Rim, best friends with Harrison Ford, stars with Lupita in new film Star Wars: The Last Jedi, said he’s keen for the 34-year-old actress to play “the love of his life” in a new movie project.

Talking to Complex about his upcoming roles he has in the works, John said: ‘Pacific Rim: Uprising comes out next March and I star in it and produce it as well through my production company, UpperRoom Productions. 

‘It’s been fun. I’m hitting different genres. I’m still trying to convince Lupita Nyong’o to be the love of my life in a movie. That really should happen,’ the 25-year-old said. He also said that even though he’s open to most film genres, there’s one he will not touch. ‘I’m not closed to any genre except horror. It’s never really been a thing to me. But I did watch It and it was bloody good.’

What if Lupita will only play the love of his life in the second It film? Then what John? Meanwhile, John joined Lupita at the London premiere of The Last Jedi on Tuesday night – but John didn’t come alone, he brought his whole family along with him.

I think John and Lupita would make a great on-screen couple… And I for on will hitting the movie theater this weekend to see Star Wars… Roll on the popcorn and hotdgs!
