'HIDDEN FIGURES' CASTS
TARAJI P. HENSON, OCTAVIA SPENCER, KEVIN COSTNER AND KIRSTEN DUNST
Another movie gathering a rather strong cast is period set drama HIDDEN FIGURES which will have Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, Kevin Costner, Kirsten Dunst and Janelle Monae in its cast. It tells the untold true story of the African American female mathematicians at NASA who provided the calculations that helped fuel some of America’s greatest achievements in space. The story is told through the personal accounts of the four women known as the “Colored Computers,” and their accomplishment is set against the background of the Jim Crow South and the civil rights movement.

 'THE SON' EPIC MINI SERIES
SAM NEILL AND HENRY GARRETT TO LEAD THE CAST
Here's another new historical drama for you! 'Deadline' reports that AMC has done casting for their ten episode epic mini series THE SON with Sam Neill leading the ensemble! Based on the Philipp Meyer book the multi gene- rational epic tale depicts the rise and fall of one Texas family.

THE FIRST SON OF TEXAS
Sam Neill will be Eli, the charismatic patriarch of the McCullough family who was kidnapped as a child and raised among the Comanche tribe and applies the brutal Comanche world view to his business dealings. He was born on the day Texas became an independent Republic, earning the nickname “First Son of Texas” and is a relic of the Wild West, uneasy with the inexorable taming of Texas and the uncertain future of his legacy. Henry Garrett  will be his eldest son  who grew up in Eli’s shadow and struggles to make his impossible father proud while still forging his own identity. Zahn McClarnon is Toshaway, a Comanche war chief who captures young Eli and becomes his father figure. Paola Nunez will play the last member of the wealthy Spanish aristocracy in South Texas, a college educated woman ahead of her time.

  2. Hidden Figures sounds like a movie that will be empowering for girls. While I'm sure a lot of the focus will be not only because they were smart women, but women of color also, I do think this is one that Mariah will enjoy. She just informed us she is switching her major to focus on STEM instead of animal sciences, so I am going to recommend she check this out. Seeing other women succeed in NASA will be a great motivator for her.

  3. It's short for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math, all areas she really excels in. Also, areas that women aren't normally pushed to explore in education. Many of the schools here offer scholarships to help cover the tuition cost for girls who wish to study in these areas since so few girls do. I find it sad that our educational system isn't pushing more girls to explore these fields as we have many bright young women who I think could make so many positive contributions to these fields.

    1. Oh, my, she definitely did not get it from her Fairy GodSpy Dezzy :) I've zero talent in those very fields. It is interesting that our very own Mileva Maric, a renowned scientist, was Einstein's wife and it is believed she actually came up with most of his theories :)

    2. Too bad we don't hear more about Mileva Maric. I don't know it seems a lot of women's contributions to these fields goes unnoticed.

      I don't know where Mariah gets her brains from. Her course load stresses me out just reading through it. She is taking all advanced placement classes, which are pretty much college level and is maintaining the #1 spot out of all 250 of her classmates in her grade level. She gets so angry when the smart ones drop down to a regular class load to try to up their grade point average, since she feels they are taking the easy way out. I admit, the girl is kind of intimidating with her smarts. If she isn't valedictorian next year, I'll be shocked.

    3. maybe she was sent from Mars? Did you see strange lights in the corn fields of Indiana whilst pregnant with her?

    4. No, but I think she stole all my brain cells when I was pregnant with her. Maybe that's why she's so smart. The girl damn near sucked the life out of me. I was horribly sick the entire pregnancy (even throwing up while delivering her!) so I'm sticking with that lol.

  4. No way Sam Neill can pull off a Texan accent. Ever. But I like the guy, so I might have to cut him some slack ;)
