May 22nd: Katharine McPhee & Daniel Gillies To Topline Lifetime’s ‘The Lost Wife Of Robert Durst’

Jen | Categories: Casting News, Daniel Gillies, Non TVD Projects | Comment

Lifetime has given the green light to original movie The Lost Wife of Robert Durst, with Katharine McPhee and Daniel Gillies set to star as Kathie and Robert Durst.

Based on Matt Birkbeck’s book, A Deadly Secret: The Strange Disappearance of Kathie Durst, the movie centers around the wife of Robert Durst, subject of HBO’s documentary The Jinx. Young and wide-eyed, Kathie (McPhee) falls in love with charming, yet quirky real estate scion Robert Durst (Gillies), only to find their marriage turning stranger, darker and more disturbing as time passes. But when Kathie disappears in 1982, her family and friends are deeply disturbed that her disappearance isn’t taken seriously by police. While Durst is currently in jail awaiting trial for the murder of his close friend, journalist Susan Berman, the questions linger as to what really happened to Kathie. The Lost Wife of Robert Durst pulls back the curtain on the world of Robert Durst and explores what may have happened between him and Kathie.

A movie about Robert Durst had been in development at Lifetime since last summer.

The Jinx examined Durst’s ties to his wife’s disappearance and Berman’s death, as well as the 2001 death and dismemberment of his neighbor Morris Black, for which he was tried and acquitted. The HBO series ended with Durst blurting out on a hot microphone that he “killed them all.”

The Lost Wife of Robert Durst is produced by Lincoln Square, A+E Studios and Lifetime.

McPhee stars as Paige Dineen on CBS drama series Scorpion, which recently was renewed for a fourth season.

Gillies plays Elijah on CW’s The Originals, which was renewed for a fifth season, and can next be seen in CBS’ new fall drama series SEAL Team. Gillies also directed an episode of The Originals, which airs June 2, as well as feature Broken Kingdom and documentary Kingdom Come. Gillies is repped by APA and LINK Entertainment.

Feb 28th: Rogue Magazine Interviews Daniel Gillies

Jen | Categories: Daniel Gillies, Interviews, Magazines, The Originals | Comments Off on Rogue Magazine Interviews Daniel Gillies

In the past six years alone, Daniel Gillies has been performing in front of a camera for over 150 episodes of television. A tremendous number really, if you consider the fact that The Vampire Diaries spinoff, The Originals, has 66 currently aired episodes in its three short years of production–with another 13 on the way. Naturally, a solid fraction of these episodes stem from his originating role as debonair vampire Elijah Mikaelson in The Vampire Diaries–later carrying forward to his starring role on The Originals– but miraculously, Gillies also managed to muster in the time to star in the Canadian medical drama Saving Hope.

He’s probably still trying to catch up on his sleep.

In this time Gillies has seen a lot of sets, memorized countless lines, and worked with many, many directors. And as the episodes went by, Gillies described feeling a growing frustration with many of the directors he worked with in television.

Dec 2nd: The Originals cast explains the show’s plot in 30 seconds

Jen | Categories: Charles Michael Davis, Daniel Gillies, Danielle Campbell, Interviews, Joseph Morgan, Leah Pipes, Phoebe Tonkin, The Originals, TV Series, Videos | Comments Off on The Originals cast explains the show’s plot in 30 seconds

For any show, it’s difficult to summarize the plot in 30 seconds. But for a show about vampires that have been around for more than 1,000 years, it’s even more complicated.

And yet, we got the cast of The Originals to attempt it anyway. The biggest takeaway? In case you didn’t know, this show is really about family.

The Originals airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET on The CW.
