Halle Berry gave birth to her second child, a son with Olivier Martinez, but she has another new arrival on the horizon. It is being reported that the erstwhile Catwoman has been cast in an upcoming television series from Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Television in conjunction with CBS.
Berry is set to play ”an astronaut who returns home from a year-long solo mission in space and tries to reconnect with her husband and son in their everyday life.”
Great timing since the new Sandra Bullock/George Clooney flick, Gravity, is killing it at the box office right now. Looks like audiences might be ready for some space adventures!
Of the project, Berry said: ”I’m always on the lookout for amazing roles and when you see material that contains this strong of auspices, nuance and complexity it compels me to run toward it no matter the medium.”
Well, she’s also not exactly winning on the big screen so I’m sure that factored in to her willingness to consider a role on a television show.
The series is set to air sometime in the summer of 2014.
