'Monday Mornings': Bits 'n' Bobs of News Updates!

Soooo, we've got some odds 'n' ends news about Monday Mornings that has surfaced over the past few weeks, mostly via Twitter. We've been trying to save up for a big post, but... well, it's a decent-sized post. Still, some of it's potentially exciting! :)

— Let's do the exciting part first: Kerry tweeted this out yesterday, causing a fair amount of on-the-spot speculation to begin:

Both asta77 and myself instantly wondered if it might be Ioan Gruffudd - which I will grant you is mainly wishful thinking on our parts. ;) BUT... given that she said "JB fans" and not "BSG fans" we wondered if that would indicate it was someone Jamie worked with on a non-BSG project? Of course, it certainly could be another BSG alum... that's a big cast and many of them are LA based now. The other out-of-the-box former co-star that would probably make me over the moon giddy would be Bradley Walsh... but I'd count that as seriously unlikely not only because he's London-based but going off of Emilia di Girolamo's recent tweets, LOUK is about to resume production again. And I have another guess too, but since it is a book spoiler I will leave it for the spoiler section I'm adding at the end of the post!

(Also worth nothing: dramaturgca asked Kerry if it might be her own self, to which she replied "Haha I said exciting not frightening! ;-) " Oh, Kerry... dear woman, don't you dare sell yourself short. It would be hugely exciting! So there! ;) )

— In other news, actor/director Mario Van Peebles is directing at least one episode, as evidenced by the tweet that MM's make-up artist Jori Jenae posted yesterday.

— Jori also recently mentioned a big cast photo shoot that took place. (No behind the scenes photo evidence of that, sadly, so we'll keep hanging tight till it turns up!) And she tweeted today that of the season order, they have three episodes left to shoot.

— Also, it was mentioned on our Twitter a while back but I don't think we posted it here yet: veteran actor Hal Holbrook is guest starring on the show. (Set pics did get tweeted of this, including Sarayu Rao and Ewan Chung. Well he is pretty much a legend. ;) )

— IMDb appears to have some episode titles posted: There are listings for "Deus Ex Machina" and "Forks Over Knives," although I wouldn't trust the episode order or dates one iota at this point. (It's IMDb, of course, so it's never entirely trustworthy this far out from when a show hits - but for example, one of them is listed as airing two days *before* the pilot. HUH?)

Alright, now for the potential SPOILERS part of our update. I will point out that this stuff is mostly spoilery only if you did not read the book! But I don't recall some of our regulars participating in the book discussions, and if anyone stops by via social media I'm assuming you guys won't want to be spoiled so just in case....

And that about wraps it up! For now. (I don't imagine we'll have a ton to post until after the new year when the premiere gets quite close, but we'll see!)
