Well this is certainly different.

Harper's Bazaar dedicated an entire spread to Margaret Thatcher in their September issue.

The mag used celebuspawn Georgia May Jagger to recreate classic moments from the former UK Prime Minister's time in office.

Loving the tank shot!

Netflix To Feature Their Own Original Series!

netflix to feature original series

Uh oh, Amazon Prime & Redbox and maybe even cable networks! Looks like Netflix means business.

Netflix has just outbid HBO and AMC for House of Cards, an original series directed by The Social Network's David Fincher, which will star Kevin Spacey, and is being executive produced by the duo.

Negotiations are still underway, but it appears that Netflix will be the exclusive home for the 26-episode season, which will cost the company over $100 million.

The show was written by former Conservative Party chief of staff Michael Dobbs, and it's a political thriller which is "set at the end of Margaret Thatcher's tenure as prime minister and follows a British politician with his eye on the top job."

This is quite a move for Netflix! And given the fact that The Social Network's David Fincher is attached to the project, we could see where A LOT of people will want to check out the show.

Should be inneresting to see how this affects their business.

Would you be more inclined to sign up for Netflix with the addition of original series'?

First Look At Meryl Streep As Margaret Thatcher In The Iron Lady

meryl streep as margaret thatcher

Check out the photo (above) of Meryl Streep as a very convincing Margaret Thatcher in The Iron Lady.

Here's what Ms. Streep had to say about her Iron Lady role:

"I am trying to approach the role with as much zeal, fervour and attention to detail as the real Lady Thatcher possesses - I can only hope my stamina will begin to approach her own."

Loves it! And you look FANTASTIC, Meryl!

As we said before, we're very curious to see how you fare in this one.

…We're feeling good about it!

Meryl Streep Sits In On Houses Of Parliament Session To Prepare For Margaret Thatcher Biopic

meryl-streep-sits-in-on-houses-of-parliament-session-to-prepare-for-margaret-thatcher-biopic

We're not surprised to hear that she's taking the role so seriously! She is the BEST for a reason, you know!

Meryl Streep recently signed on to play the part of former UK head honcho Margaret Thatcher in a biopic called The Iron Lady, and was reported to be in attendance this morning at the Prime Minister's Question Time at the Houses of Parliament, in order to properly prepare for role.

Although the film will allegedly focus on the 17 days before the 1982 Falklands War, which was between the UK and Argentina, Thatcher was known to take part in two 15 minute Question Time sessions a week, so we think this is probably a smart way for her to start doing her homework!

Good lord, is there anyone this woman cannot play?!

We're very curious to see how she fares in this one!

Thoughts??
