Fantastic news to hear Roots will premiere at the opening of Cannes this year! While the article states Jonathan is expected to attend conflicting schedules are always a possibility and that could change but keeping my fingers crossed!
A+E Studios’ historical drama miniseries “Roots” is set to have its international premiere on the opening night of the Cannes-set conference MipTV.
Anna Paquin, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Anika Noni Rose and Malachi Kirby are all expected to attend the premiere screening along with exec producer Mark Wolper and co-exec producer LeVar Burton.
￼￼Developed by History and based on Alex Haley’s 1976 novel, “Roots” charts the journey of a family fighting against the adversity of slavery while witnessing and contributing to notable moments in U.S. history, including the American Revolution and Civil War.
Screen captures from Jonnys role in Stonewall have now been uploaded to the gallery. I was fairly surprised to see him in more scenes than I was expecting so if you haven’t seen the film yet and don’t want to know what happens I suggest avoiding looking until you’ve had the opportunity to view it. For those who didn’t get the opportunity to view it at the cinema on it’s release it is now available to purchase on the US iTunes store

The eight-hour event series — which examines one family’s struggle to survive during the era of American slavery — is set to premiere on History, Lifetime and A&E on Memorial Day, May 30, at 9/8c (two days before the Emmy cutoff period). It will then continue for the next three nights, with the finale slated for June 2.

A lot of people have emailed me and left comments regarding the posting of candids. I have decided to keep posting them for now but only selected ones depending on whether Jonny looks comfortable. In this particular encounter he acknowledges them by shaking their hand hence why I have uploaded. To start off some high quality pictures of him out in Malibu on Friday are now in the gallery. Enjoy!

A new promotional still from Stonewall has been released by Lionsgate and can be found in high quality in the usual place. Also a massive Happy New Year to everyone as I have not been on due to the limited content I have to post but as always I appreciate everyone who still continues to visit in the more quieter periods. Stonewall will be available to purchase on DVD January 19th
As many of you will have noticed I’m a site that (sometimes controversially) still posts candids. During the quiet spells I found it was a nice stop gap due to other areas of the site also being rather much of the same. After the candids posted the other day in Los Angeles I am re-thinking the sites candid policy about whether I should continue to post and if they have any place on the site which is why I took the decision not to post on here or any of our social media accounts. I will make a decision based on that in the coming weeks but until then enjoy all of the wonderful pictures already available in the gallery

*CUTENESS ALERT* I have added lots of lovely pictures to the gallery of Jonny departing from LAX yesterday accompanied by a gorgeous fluffball called Toccoa who is apparently an Emotional Support Animal. Enjoy (because I know I did before I eventually got round to uploading them)
