Say What: Nicole Who Never Sleeps

This might sound strange to y'all given the common knowledge that I am a Kidmaniac but I have real trouble keeping up with her career. Lately it seems as if the Aussie/Nashville goddess lives, eat, drinks, breathes acting and exists not outside of film sets. In addition to the potentially high profile releases like the troubled Grace of Monaco, the children's film Paddington, and the biopic Queen of the Desert (which I wholly suspect will find a distributor since Werner Herzog movies are good and it has three famous men in support: Robert Pattinson, James Franco, and Damian Lewis) and the just announced Genius and Family Fang,  there are two more obscure titles on the way which both released stills this past week. One of them I hadn't even heard of and I pay attention! So here are two images for your "say what" amusement. Add dialogue or caption in the comments for a chance to win a walk-on part in Nicole's eighth 2015 release*

Joseph Fiennes & Nicole in "Strangerland"

Nicole in "Before I Go To Sleep"

After the jump, the winners from the last Say What contest!

* this is not a real prize.

To catch us up to date -- good grief I'm forgetful -- here are the winners of the last rounds... They each win their choice of week-long Banner themes up top the site.

Adri found a way to combine both new MacBeth stills

Mac: Should I wear the gold sash or the red?
LadyM: Do what you want. I don't care anymore.

Mac: I knew it! The gold sash is completely wrong for the occasion. 


A tie between James T and Ryan T


That kid was bleeding an awful lot but I wasn't going to walk home."


Trying to get a part in the new Lance Armstong biopic, Banks bikes to audition dressed as a Livestrong wristband.

And this exchange between Meryl & Glenn at the Oscars had lots of fun responses. The only way I could choose was to go with the one that made me LOL based on Glenn's facial expression. So the winner is... Joey M

Meryl: I still haven't seen Albert Nobbs...

Before I Go to Sleep.

(looking at the Oscars selfie)

Why, oh, why I wasn't there?

I can't think of something particularly interesting for banner theme so I'll just go with people rolling their eyes.

Before I Go To Sleep: "No, this is not my Wagner look. Let's try again."

Strangerland: "Rainier shouldn't have let me come back to Hollywood"

May 6, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterJames T

Strangerland, Joseph Fiennes: " This is it, TFE Podcasters! I'm holding Nicole hostage until you retract that I am the lesser Fiennes brother!"

Before I go to Sleep, Nicole: "If Harvey and Olivier can argue over the final cut of Grace of Monaco, I can come up with my own version too! Now, disheveled Grace Kelly weeping in a basement, that's an angle no one explored before!"

"Harvey, please.No more reshoots for Grace Of Monaco."
