Entourage stunner Emmanuelle Chriqui is joining The Mentalist as a major new love interest for Simon Baker’s Jane, TVLine has learned exclusively.
The actress has been cast in the recurring role of Loraliei Martins, a mysterious new woman in Jane’s life who may be too good to be too good to be true.
Chriqui is set to debut in the CBS drama’s May 17 finale and then return for at least five episodes next season.
According to an article on Shalom Life, Emmanuelle Chriqui is set to star in a new film called “Standby”. Emmanuelle plays the lead character Gigi and its scheduled for a release sometime this year.
Gigi Robinson is a beautiful woman in her late 20′s who has worked very hard to put her boyfriend through medical school and wants to get married, have kids and live the fairy-tale life. Unfortunately, she’s in a holding-pattern on standby because her boyfriend won’t commit. Ironically, while flying standby at an airport she meets Race Monroe, a successful businessman in his 50′s who is funny, charming and shares her values. There’s one small problem: He’s married, has kids and his own baggage to deal with. With a crew of hysterically zany characters surrounding Race and Gigi, it puts them on a collision course of an overnight stay that will change their lives forever.
Emmanuelle Chriqui has ranked #25 on the AskMen.com annual poll of top 99 women for 2012!
2010′s “Most Desirable Woman” dropped a few spots in last year’s Top 99, but nobody is disputing that Emmanuelle Chriqui is still as sought after as ever. The gorgeous Montreal native returned to Entourage for its final season, during which Eric (Kevin Connolly) tried to win his former fiancee back. We don’t blame him. For some reason, the stunning actress still remains woefully underrated outside of premium cable. After having a low-key past few years (except for a crazy-hot lap dance in Elektra Luxx), Chriqui will hopefully see more screen time if the planned Entourage movie pans out.
Actress Emmanuelle Chriqui, star of the hit HBO show “Entourage,” joined a popular petition campaign on Change.org calling on Apple to make products with conflict-free minerals sourced from eastern Congo. Her signature joins those of more than 50,000 people around the world.
“I want the electronics that I use to be conflict-free,” said Chriqui, upon announcing her support for the campaign. “Apple is already a leader in the field and could make the first-ever conflict-free electronics with minerals from Congo.”
Chriqui, a longtime champion of the Raise Hope For Congo campaign at the Enough Project, announced her support of the campaign on Tuesday on Twitter, tweeting the following to her 76,000 followers:
Hi..pls RT I just asked #Apple CEO #TimCook to make a conflict-free iPhone. Help me end conflict in Congo http://chn.ge/tmkcfZ#+changexxE.
Chriqui sent the tweet shortly after learning that Delly Mawazo Sesete, a native of Congo who has fought human rights abuses in the mining industry despite violence and death threats, had launched the campaign on Change.org.
“Apple is perfectly positioned to be the first company to create a Congo conflict-free phone,” said Sesete when he launched the campaign on Change.org. “But they must use minerals from Congo that further stability and economic development and don’t use slave labor or fund mass atrocities.”
Within weeks, more than 50,000 people have joined Sesete’s campaign, which received coverage from CBS, New York Daily News, BBC, The Guardian, and other major news outlets. Click here to join the campaign!
An all-star cast bring the chills to DVD and Blu-ray on November 8th with the Anchor Bay Films thriller “13″.
A remake of the award-winning 2005 international sensation 13 Tzameti, 13 is written and directed by Gela Babluani, the original film’s writer/director, and boasts an all-star cast including Sam Riley (Control, Brighton Rock), Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson (Get Rich or Die Tryin’), Ray Winstone (The Departed, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull), Alexander Skarsgård (“True Blood”), Oscar nominee Michael Shannon (Revolutionary Road, “Boardwalk Empire,” the upcoming Superman film Man of Steel), Ben Gazzara (Saint Jack, They All Laughed), Emmanuelle Chriqui (You Don’t Mess With The Zohan, “Entourage”) with Oscar nominee Mickey Rourke (The Wrestler, Iron Man 2) and Jason Statham (The Expendables, The Mechanic).
The original 13 Tzameti (the Georgian word for “13”) won the 2006 Sundance Grand Jury Prize and Babluani won best director at the Venice Film Festival.
In the film, Vince Ferro is a man in desperate circumstances. While on a quick fix-it job, he steals an envelope containing instructions for a mysterious job that promises a potential fortune. He assumes a false identity and follows the instructions, only to find himself a numbered participant in an underworld Russian roulette competition, where gamblers place bets on who’ll survive when the trigger is pulled.
The stakes are high, but the payout is more than he can resist. Many are competing for the first time, and a precious few have even returned to play again, but are his odds any better than other players in this most deadly game? What will it take to be the last man standing?
Bonus features on 13 Blu-ray™ and DVD will include a behind-the-scenes featurette, and the theatrical trailer.
Emmanuelle Chriqui and her former “Entourage” co-stars Perrey Reeves and Constance Zimmer will be hosting the Environmental Media Awards this year! The show will be taking place on Saturday, October 15th and you can watch the show live at facebook.com/EMAOnline.
In an early announcement to retailers, Starz/Anchor Bay is working on ’5 Days of War’ for Blu-ray on November 29.
This action-packed international thriller from acclaimed director Renny Harlin (‘Die Hard 2,’ ‘Cliffhanger’) is based on the true events of a renegade American journalist, his cameraman and a local woman caught behind enemy lines during the devastating five day war between Russian and the Georgian Republic.
From writers Mikko Alanne and David Battle, ’5 Days of War’ features an all-star cast including Rupert Friend (‘Young Victoria,’ ‘The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas’), Emmanuelle Chriqui (HBO’s “Entourage,” ‘You Don’t Mess With The Zohan’), Richard Coyle (‘Prince of Persia’), Andy Garcia (‘City Island,’ ‘Oceans 12′), Val Kilmer (‘Kiss Kiss Bang Bang,’ ‘Batman Forever’), and proves director Harlin to still be the master of the high-octane action genre.
The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a Dolby TrueHD 5.1 soundtrack, and there doesn’t seem to be any supplements on this release.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.97.
