Some interesting casting news hot on the heels of the news yesterday, that Karine Vanasse (Margaux) will be upped to series regular if ABC’s Revenge gets picked-up for a fourth season!

TV Line revealed today that none other than Halle Berry’s husband, actor Olivier Martinez, has signed on with the soap in the Hamptons to play the on-screen father of Vanasse!  Martinez will have the recurring role of Pascal LeMarchal, the media magnate father to Margaux!

What we know is that Pascal is a cutthroat businessman who has a history with Conrad (Henry Czerny), and history with Victoria (Madeleine Stowe).  Is he a love from her past?

With Martinez embarking on his new role on Revenge, this marks the French actor’s biggest TV commitment.  And as for wife Halle Berry, she is set to star on CBS this summer in the drama series, Extrant!

Interesting news; isn’t he a little young to play Karin Vanasse’s father?

She’s 30…he’s 48.

Always thought he was hot…loved him in films. Was totally mesmerizing in Unfaithul. However, once he beat the crap out of Gabriel Aubry I’m no longer a fan.

I’ll continue to watch because I love the show…I have no doubt he’ll be great in the role…but I have no respect for him as a person.

I totally agree with you. I’ll just fast forward through his scenes. Kind of put a dent in the show for me.

Amen, rebecca1!!!! Thought highly of the guy when he was with Kylie Minogue throughout her illness and was disappointed when they parted, but never got the whole Berry thing with him. They both seem bonkers. As for the gorgeous Gabriel, I would have preferred to see him on “Revenge!” Perhaps not as skilled in the acting sense as Martinez, but definitely a far better man and more to my liking in the looks department! (Yes, I know you already consider me to be superficial….can’t help it, I like them blond boys…LOL.) ; )

hahahha…I can be quite the superficial myself when it comes to looks Shay! Naaaa…lemme clafiry. Looks only go so far in REAL life. But there’s no shortage of my boy crushes…from Gabriel to Jonathan Rhys Myers, Orlando Bloom, Jude Law, Henry Cavill, the list goes on and on and on…thank goodness!!! 😉

So you go for those “Brit Boys,” too!!! There is something about them….they just seem more sophisticated and stylish! I’ve been this way like, forever! It started in the formative years of the ’80’s with those pop bands like Duran Duran and Spandau Ballet, not to mention the late, great Robert Palmer! Then it made its way into the acting field. About the only Yank who captured my imagination to the same extent was James Spader….loved, loved, loved him through all his prepster roles and upper crust villainy. Alas, I finally gave up on him when he crossed into “character actor” territory…he is still undeniably talented, but for me it’s just too sad to watch him now when I think of his immensely handsome youth! : ( I know, I know, “superficial!” LOL…..

Not superficial. I have to clarify again. I love/lust with the best of em…maybe more. I just don’t discount people, real or fictional…cause I’m a mushball too. So, if a character is deemed worthy in my eyes, I’ll defend them…again, in real life too. But yes, YES!!! I have such a list of lustees!

Alak and alas, poor James. He was tres sexy in Sex, Lies and Videotape…in his day. Still a superb actor but man! Say no more…

As for the Brit boys…I think it’s the accent…from other countries as well…Jonathan Rhys Is Irish as is Colin Farrell, Keith Urban New Zealand, Eric Bana, Hugh Jackman, Chris Hemsworth, Simon Baker, Alex O’Loughlin from Hawaii Five O is Australian…even Daniel (Josh Bowman) is English…Gunner from Nashville (Sam Palladio…English) there’s way too many to count!

But who am I kidding. Even on mute they’re all stunning! 😉

By the way, sent you a long response on Nashville post…not sure if I didn’t hit send or Michael decided we should take out chat outside!

Shay

Can take or leave Aiden….no biggie. And I don’t even mind that you champion Margaux….although I am really turned off by her, she certainly doesn’t rate “Sabrina” territory for me, so I just say to each their own on that one…LOL. By the way, in total agreement on Simon Baker…have been a great follower of his since “The Guardian!” Some of the other mentions, not so much….you seem more “equal opportunity” on the issue of blond vs. brunette, while I am pretty squarely in the fair-haired boys camp! (And speaking of, I am also loving the actor portraying James “Jimmy” Kent on “Downton”…what a cheeky cutie!) But you are so right on our poor James S…..quite tragic! I have a collection of his best film performances on video from when he was still in his prime…sigh. Will check for the missing Nashville post…sometimes that happens to me, too. I’m never sure if my messages just time out or are moderated out of existence….that does happen sometimes when my observations are a bit too sharp!!!!! Haha….

I’ll be glad to get some back story on Margaux. However, if they don’t “age him up” with make up or something the fact that he doesn’t look old enough to be her father will be a bit of a distraction.

I’m not liking this at all because I’ve hated Margeaux from day 1, almost as much I hate Aiden.

Shay
Shay

Me too….in fact, I wrote a none-too-glowing critique on her in the last Revenge thread regarding her character, and it must have been judged as being too harsh since it didn’t get posted. But yes, there is something very off-putting about her….She is just….. ugh!!!!

rebecca1
rebecca1

haha!! gloves back on! I LIKE Margaux (sp?). I think she’s beautiful, elegant, wise, and a refreshing light amdst the sea of deliciious “evil doers.” Until and if proven wrong…I welcome her sophisticated, sunny disposition. And…I’m curious to see where her loyalties will lie as the PLOT THICKENS… (music please…)

oh. and I think Aidan is hot…
