The Purge’s original film lead Ethan Hawke will return on USA Network’s Season 2 Finale episode “7:01 AM” to reprise his character James Sandin.

Guess who’s back? Major, breaking news for fans of The Purge that have been following the James DeMonaco created universe since its inception. Ethan Hawke is returning for next week’s Purge Season 2 Finale to reprise his role as James Sandin!

USA Network has confirmed to The Natural Aristocrat that James Sandin will be prominently featured in the Season 2 Finale’s cold open. Which will flash back “one week before the first national Purge and the first time his high-tech security system is tested.” Fans are going to party like it’s 2013 again when the security system salesman we first became acquainted with is finally back on the scene.

Is only a one-shot intro potentially in store for James Sandin then? Similar to the iconic voice of The Purge radio show, Bobby Sheridan [Dermot Mulroney], getting an on-screen guest spot recently… Will Sandin interact with series breakout Ben Gardner [Joel Allen] in some fashion?

Season 1’s finale managed to tie up all loose ends with a pretty red bow as all roads led to Joe [Lee Tergesen]. Is there more to the James Sandin connection than meets the eye? Either way, it’s incredible news to have The Purge return to its roots and pull an absolute top notch actor back into the fold.

USA Network’s The Purge Executive Producers/Writers James Roland and Krystal Houghton Ziv have mentioned being thrilled to receive the okay from DeMonaco to use ‘The God Mask’ on the series… And now the franchise original James Sandin is back! Never say never in the entertainment industry. Certainly a good bet that cold open will be a highly memorable for every Purge fan, new and old.

The Purge Season 2 Finale titled “7:01 AM” airs on Tuesday, December 17 at 9 pm ET / 8 pm Central on USA Network as “Purge night rages on and Esme, Ryan, Marcus and Ben fight for their lives and their loved ones.”

Be sure to check out The Natural Aristocrat’s interview with Joel Allen on Ben Gardner’s connection to ‘The God Mask’, the intense scenes on The Purge’s Season 2 and much more!

The UK’s New Zealand Society will present National Theatre Live’s ‘Julius Caesar’ starring David Morrissey on Tuesday, March 17th 2020 over at National Theatre Studio in London.

‘The Governor’ David Morrissey’s portrayal of Mark Antony in National Theatre Live’s rendition of classic Shakespeare play ‘Julius Caesar’ will be revived on-screen for one night only this coming March. UK based New Zealand Society’s Film and Theatre Club will present ‘Julius Caesar’ (TV Movie Edition) on Tuesday, March 17 2020 at 5:45 p.m. at London’s National Theatre Studio!

The Telegraph called David Morrissey’s performance “electrifying” back on January 30, 2018, giving the show 4 out of 5 stars. Tickets will be free for New Zealand Society members and just £7.50 for non-members / General Admission. National Theatre Studio is located at 83-101 The Cut Lambeth London SE1 8LL.

Alongside David Morrissey in National Theatre Live’s ‘Julius Caesar’ is Ben Whishaw [The Danish Girl] as Brutus, Michelle Fairley [Game of Thrones] as Cassius, and David Calder [The Lost City of Z] as Julius Caesar himself. Directed by Nicholas Hytner, the productions runs at 2 hours and 15 minutes with no intervals.

National Theatre Live’s ‘Julius Caesar’ Synopsis:

Caesar returns in triumph to Rome and the people pour out of their homes to celebrate. Alarmed by the autocrat’s popularity, the educated élite conspire to bring him down.

After his assassination, civil war erupts on the streets of the capital. Nicholas Hytner’s production will thrust the audience into the street party that greets Caesar’s return, the congress that witnesses his murder, the rally that assembles for his funeral and the chaos that explodes in its wake.

Learn more about the production and its extensive critical acclaim over at National Theatre Live’s official Julius Caesar page. The TV Movie of the production to be presented by the UK’s New Zealand Society was originally released on March 22, 2018.

About the UK’s New Zealand Society: “NZ Society UK provides social opportunities for Kiwis to meet up & celebrate both our heritage and our adopted home.”

David Morrissey’s recent Acting Craftsmanship:

David Morrissey has been busy portraying Aulus in TV series Britannia recently, and will soon play a featured role as Walter Blackett in upcoming series The Singapore Grip.

Best remembered as one of Rick Grimes’ greatest all-time rivals on The Walking Dead, David Morrissey’s acting has always been on a whole other level. Dynamite on-screen and on-stage, his presence commands your attention. Thus, it’s no surprise that an ‘actor’s actor’ like Morrissey would return to his roots after The Walking Dead and continue performing in Shakespeare’s lineage of work. Not to mention a strong run on-stage performing in Martin McDonagh’s Hangmen!

Larry David and Jon Hamm get kicked out of a dinner party in a fresh Curb Your Enthusiasm Season 10 Trailer released today! HBO has officially announced the series returns on January 19, 2020.

Larry David is regularly made to feel unwelcome and told to “Get Out!” in a new Curb Your Enthusiasm Season 10 Trailer released by HBO earlier today. He’s even getting others kicked out by association like Mad Men/Baby Driver star Jon Hamm at 1:24-1:25 of the trailer. Jon Hamm accepts being ousted proudly as Larry celebrates the rite of passage… A classic Larry David style un-ceremonial exit! What kind of a role will Jon Hamm have on the series? Is it a one-off episode cameo or will fans see Hamm throughout Season 10 in an overarching story?

The new trailer also features Larry getting under a mailman’s skin, evading a confrontation by telling him to wear something other than shorts next time… That is if he wants to be taken seriously! The moment happens at 1:30 in the trailer. “Can I give you some advice? If you’re going to confront someone, better to put some pants on… Hard to take a person seriously wearing shorts.”

Curb Your Enthusiasm officially returns to HBO on Sunday, January 19th next year with its debuting episode running from 10:30 p.m. – 11:07 p.m. ET. The series last aired Season 9 on December 3, 2017. According to HBO, Susie Essman, Jeff Garlin, Cheryl Hines, Richard Lewis, and JB Smoove are all confirmed to reprise their roles.

Larry David is back – as Larry David – stumbling through one faux-pas after another in an all-new season of the award-winning, hit comedy series.

Returning series regulars include Emmy® nominee Larry David (“Seinfeld”), Susie Essman (“Broad City”), Jeff Garlin (“The Goldbergs”), Emmy® nominee Cheryl Hines (“Suburgatory”), Richard Lewis (“Anything But Love”) and JB Smoove (“The Millers”).

Larry David has maintained that he only wants to do Curb Your Enthusiasm if he finds the right muse to do it justice for a full season. This time around the hiatus between seasons was much lower (Six years between Season 8 and 9) so he’s clearly feeling it, this season will no doubt be magic once again!

Holly Earl meets Hideo Kojima at Gamescom 2019

The actress with the million dollar smile, Holly Earl, met gaming icon Hideo Kojima at Gamescom 2019, opening the door potentially for the star of Erica to be on a future Death Stranding DLC!

London’s Holly Earl [AMC’s Humans] gently stepped into her gaming industry debut as the lead star of Erica on August 19… And already making friends and snapping photos with the best the scene has to offer! Enter Hideo Kojima, creator of the Metal Gear series and off the charts anticipated Death Stranding. Kojima has lent his support for Holly Earl in Erica by retweeting the Sony published release. 

Simple friendly retweet or the start of a professional relationship that sees Holly potentially meet Norman Reedus in a future DLC? Hmmm. Kojima has always been keen on details and revels in the release of clues through social media.

Holly Earl originally became a viral web sensation from a fairly early career interview for the Belgrade Theatre. The kind-eyed Earl was playing the character of Bertha in a production The Father at the time (2012). Though she’d already started professionally acting back in 1997 as Louise Creegan in TV series Touching Evil. Something about Holly Earl’s opening smile in the interview and serene demeanor resonated. That smile soon became a GIF known the world over. The extra boost every rising star needs to make it to the next level.


As the hype around Erica builds to a crescendo on the PlayStation 4, Holly Earl could easily become a go-to talent in the gaming industry. With Norman Reedus leading Death Stranding and Keanu Reeves playing a role in Cyberpunk 2077… It could be Hollywood’s lineup that ultimately decides the future of gaming. A vast untapped market of current non-gamers will be swayed by familiar names to give gaming a try for the first time. Even if Kojima does not bring in Holly Earl to work in some fashion on Death Stranding in these late stages, a future unnamed project is always possible.
