Jonathan Ross – former BBC presenter of Film 2010 – has found a new job. Despite intending to take a year off from television after leaving the BBC this summer, he’ll be back next week. As the new face of Cinemoi– the French specialist channel shown on Sky Channel 443 and Virgin Media channel 445.
The film buff, who has taken shares in the channel, will take up a varied role as a presenter, producer and creative director. His first interview for Cinemoi will be with Marion Cotillard, the Oscar-winning star of La Vie en Rose, which will be screened next month.

Marion Cotillard is on the cover of the new Paris Match in France – together with French sailor Maud Fontenoy. The pictures were taken mid-November in La Rochelle on Maud’s boat. The interview gives us insight into their collaboration that properly took after Marion attended the Maud Fontanoy Gala on world ocean’s day back in June. Check back later this week for more about their collaboration and the actual scans.
I don’t think I updated about this last year but I did in 2008 and 2007. Marion Cotillard is featured on the Most Beautiful Faces list for the 9th time – this year at #12. This is an international list and is different from your usual Sexiest… lists. Camilla Belle, Emma Watson and Tamsin Egerton occupy the first 3 spots. See the full list here.
The previously mentioned dolls created by Marion Cotillard herself and by Dior HOMME for Guillaume Canet have since been shown in the exhibition at the Petit Palais in Paris with all the other dolls. This is the page for them on the official site. UNICEF’s press release reports that all the dolls were sold at an auction on Tuesday for a total of €285 000. Marion & Guillaume’s dolls were sold together for €4 000. The money will be used to help vaccinate thousands of children in Darfur.
In the beginning of 2011 the new comedy series ‘Platane‘ written by Éric Judor will start airing on Canal+. There will be 12 30-minute episodes. Many stars will be making a guest appearance, including Marion Cotillard, Monica Bellucci, Guillaume Canet, Gilles Lellouche, Matthieu Almaric, Vicent Cassel, Clotilde Coureau and Pierre Richard. Main actors will be Éric Judor, Jean-Baptiste Shelmerdine, Arnaud Henriet, Romain Berger, Hafid Ferdjioui and Ramzy. What is it all about?
One sad evening, Eric crashes into a tree – at 70 km/h. After a year in a coma while his comrade Ramzy’s landed a hit with “HP” (sequel to the “H” series), Eric has a revelation: he will get into Arthouse Cinema to prove that he can make a serious, profound and moving film. Despite general skepticism, he decides to write a sequel to “La Môme” (La Vie en Rose) and call it: “La Môme 2.0 Next Generation.” Surrounded by a production team with unproven skills, his clingy friend squatting at his place and rejected by the woman he attempts to win back… Will Eric find the strength to successfully complete this ambitious project which could forever change the image of French cinema?
Already the description sounds hilarious, can’t wait to hear more!
