As always, we're sure Ewan will WOW us!
We've just learned that Ewan McGregor has signed on to make his TV series debut in HBO's The Corrections, which is being put together by Noah Baumbach and Scott Rudin.
The new series is based on Jonathan Franzen's book, and the storyline has been described as follows:
"[It] revolves around the troubles of an elderly Midwestern couple, and their three adult children as they trace their lives from the mid-20th century to 'one last Christmas' together near the turn of the millennium."
The elderly couple will be played by Chris Cooper and Dianne Weist, while Ewan will star as Chip, a middle child "Marxist academic who lost his tenure-track position over an affair with a student and now works for a Lithuanian crime boss defrauding American investors."
We're intrigued! Let's hope this one makes it past pilot!!!
What do U think? Will U check out Ewan's upcoming HBO series???
