Public Appearances • 2014 • February 26: “Leadership in the 21st Century” Event
Joshua Jackson and Diane Kruger went to Berlin to prestigiate the Berlin Film Festival, in which premieres a movie where Diane lands her voice. While she was all dressed up in a beautiful Chanel ensemble, Josh was wearing a sleek suit. Since Germany is Diane’s homecountry, I assume the two lovers will stop by her parents’.
You can see photos of them ont he red carpet of the event below:
Josh Jackson and his girlfriend Diane Kruger showed their passion for the environment in this challenge proposed by Mercedex-Benz. The couple took two days camp out in California’s Death Valley – one of the hottest places on Earth – with the purpose of only drinking water created from the emissions of their B-Class F-Cell.
We’ve become absolute fans of the fuel cell. The car usage is so easy. On a day-to-day basis our normal mobility isn’t restricted at all – and we had no water problems in Death Valley either.
said Diane. Josh added,
It takes three minutes to fill up, drives about 400 kilometers and gives off zero emissions – simply perfect.
The whole big adventure was recorded and you can watch it here:
Above you can see some pictures taken during the camp.
The Affair has a different atmosphere, an ambivalent one. It’s a small town in Long Island. In the show, Noah (Dominic West, The Wire) is a New York public school teacher and aspiring novelist who is spending the summer at his in-laws’ estate out on the island. He is married with Helen (Maura Tierney, ER), his wife from 17 years and mother of their two children (one of them played by Julia Goldani Telles, Burnheads). The problem starts when Noah begins an affair with Allison (Ruth Wilson, Luther), a woman waiting tables at a very popular Hamptons diner. She is emotionally destroyed, trying to put her life back together, since the death for yet unknown reason, of her child with Cole (Joshua Jackson, Fringe and Dawson’s Creek), her husband. Cole is a ranch owner who is also struggling with the recent tragedy and with the financially strained ranch that has been in the family for generations. Cole and Allison’s perspective will be very interesting to watch, since they really suffered a tragedy and Cole seems overloaded with too many problems to deal with an affair. On the other side, Helen has a temper issue and gets stressed very easily. She’s bipolar and will explode strongly in some s cenes.
The show focuses on the emotional and psychological effects of an extramarital affair. The drama will be told separately from the male and female perspectives using the distinct memory biases to both misdirect and intrigue.
On the pilot episode, both Noah and Allison will be at a police station by the end of the episode being interrogated for some sort of crime. It is yet unknown the reason for them to be there, but that’s probably gonna be a flashforward to be revealed only by the end of the first season.
The show will be deep and very emotional. The Affair will focuse on the details and mainly on the reactions of the two couple while dealing with the discovery of the affair. The affair itself will be less explored than their feelings in general.
Award-winning playwright and writer-producer Sarah Treem (House of Cards) wrote the original script from a story co-created with Hagai Levi, whom she worked with on In Treatment. Treem and Levi will exec produce alongside Jeffrey Reiner (Friday Night Lights). Mark Mylod (Entourage, Shameless) directed the pilot.
Joshua Jackson‘s new pilot The Affair has been picked up by Showtime,Deadline reports.
The announcement about the pilot came yesterday at the Showtime TCA panel. The show also stars Dominic West, Ruth Wilson and Maura Tierney. The Affair is a “provocative drama exploring the emotional and psychological effects of an extramarital affair.” No premiere date is currently set, but Showtime says the Dexter spot in Sundays 9PM EST on the Summer Season is empty. We can’t wait to check it out!
We translated the pilot script review of the series, so you can know exactly what it’s about.
The playback pitch of Showtime’s The Affair makes it impossible not to think about ABC’s Betrayal, launched this fall without meeting the expected success, which won’t surprise anyone. I admit that I really like the pilot script of Betrayal, but the result is far from having seduced me. Because of the major players, at first, absolutely not convincing and then slowly getting less unlikable. There was too much time lost in the two cheaters. As I feared, this sort of project can only have a shot at a cable network. So ABC decided to make it more accessible, less intimate, but forgot to make it energetic. As a result, it ended up as a cold and boring product, whose potencial was not enough to make you want to follow the story. The question is: will The Affair be a successful version of Betrayal?
I don’t have the answer to this question, because I’m torn. And, frankly, I wouldn’t be schocked if Showtime chose not to greenlit it for a full season. The theme of adultery is likely to affect many people. Has adultery ever been wrong? Who hasn’t ever cheated? “Lots of people”, you’ll answer me. An “I” perhaps. But are the faithfull the majority? I don’t believe so. That’s not the debate, though.
Even though this pilot has something special, an ambivalent atmosphere as bright as dark and the heart of a small town on the East Coast, it seems at least trifling. What I’m trying to say is that the subject is basically made for a single season or even a mini series. But several seasons of 13 episodes? This would fall into a soap opera. Add many complications, a whole bunch of additional characters and let’s see how interesting it can get. In the first episode it isn’t the path followed. Everything is oversimplified to keep only the emotion of the meeting, disorder pain is never far away. It’s beautiful, but is it enough?
The pilot is told through two perspectives: first Noah’s and then Alison’s. An interesting concept but it doesn’t really make the story any more interesting. For example: It would’ve been interesting if the stories of the two protagonists could differ a little bit, even if it was on silly details, but it is exactly the same. However, in the scenes, not everything is discovered. While reading it’s pleasant. I fear they can get a bit boring on the screen. Specially Noah’s (scenes of family life fairly basic). Going on vacation, teenagers who shun a woman slightly upset (Maura Tierney, who has not much to do at the moment). Alison’s situation is more singular. Her husbad, Cole, played by Joshua Jackson, is quite enigmatic! Should she be afraid of him? Is he a good person? Gradually, many questions arise. How did their child die? Is one of the parents responsible?
But the greatest mistery surrounding this pilot resides in a scene where Alison and Noah are being interrogated by the police. The writer gives any information toward when and where and most importantly why it is happening. Has there been a murder? A suicide?
The Affair could be a real deep, challenging and beautiful drama. The difficulty is not to produce a good pilot, especially if you have a cast as good as the one the Affair has, but also produce a second episode and then a third… and then dozens of them while remaining relevant and sober.

I’m sorry if there are any mistakes in the translation (my french is not fluent). I did everything I could to make it as faithful as possible.
