Sam Jones (Kim Catrall) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) together on TV!
Two of my top TV broads of all time have been cast in a juicy British TV movie.
Confession, Geek Out readers: I want to believe. This nerd boy was SUPER into X Files. And not just for the Foxy Mulder (David Duchovony) in all his moody magnificence. Gillian Anderson was the first girl I would (solely in jest) switch teams for . As Scully she was funny, gorgeous, and radiating smartsâ€¦ and that amazing fiery hair! I still remember that sizzling Rolling Stone cover.
A few short years later, gay men around the world found a kindred spirit in the self-reliant, self-assured, and sexually empowered Samantha Jones, played by leggy looker Kim Catrall. She wore great loud fashions, had hot affairs with sexy studs, and was ever-quick with a filthy (yet funny) comment. She would so be our BFF for brunch and shopping, give or take the rest of the SATC ladies.
Apparently, across the pond theyâ€™re smart enough to utilize these two terrific talents.
â€śBritain's Channel 4 network have announced plans for a four-part series based on best-selling novel Any Human Heart, starring Jim Broadbent, Matthew Macfadyen and newcomer Sam Claflin. The X-Files actress Anderson will take on the part of a British Duchess, while Sex And The City star Cattrall will play a love interest.â€ť
Bully for you, Brits!
