halle berry headed to television

Halle Berry has been cast as an astronaut in the upcoming CBS television drama series 'Extant,' slated to air next summer.

CBS Entertainment president Nina Tassler said, "Berry is the type of actress you dream of collaborating with for an event project such as 'Extant."

Berry, 47, received a huge vote of confidence from the CBS network, who gave the green light to a 13-episode straight-to-series order, bypassing the pilot stage.

The futuristic thriller will feature her character as a astronaut returning home to her family after a year in outer space.  Her experiences lead to events that change the course of human history.  Executive producing the project is Steven Spielberg.

The pregnant actress and her French husband Olivier Martinez are anxiously awaiting the birth of a baby boy in early October.  After a short maternity break, the Academy Award-winning actress will be tasked with getting back into shape in order to begin filming the television series.

Halle is already mother to a 5-year-old daughter, Nahla, who was born during her 2005-2010 relationship with French Canadian model Gabriel Aubry.  The couple settled a long standing custody dispute in late November 2012, a week after Olivier Martinez viciously assaulted Aubry in Berry's driveway on Thanksgiving morning.

Halle, who normally gravitates to big screen roles, acknowledged, "I'm always on the lookout for amazing roles.  When the material is strong, it compels me to run toward it no matter the medium."

jennifer garner tesitifies for a protection law against the pap

Hollywood actress Jennifer Garner testified yesterday in favor of legislation that would make it illegal for the paparazzi to photograph children without the permission of a parent or guardian.

Garner got emotional while urging members of an Assembly Judiciary Committee in Sacramento to support legislation that will put an end to the aggressive and intrusive behavior that adversely affects her family on a daily basis.

Jennifer and her actor husband Ben Affleck, of 'Argo' fame, have three children: Violet, 7, Seraphina, 4, and Sam, 1.  They are, hands down, the most photographed family in California.

Halle Berry, another strong advocate of the measure, told the same group that her daughter Nahla is afraid to go to school because of the media presence during her daily school commute.

In New York City the dubious distinction falls to Sarah Jessica Parker, who is photographed on a daily basis while walking her three children to school.  Surprisingly, she appears to enjoy the experience ... if the constant smile on her face is any indication.

halle berry weekend wedding

Halle Berry and her fiance Olivier Martinez are planning to wed this weekend in Europe, according to PEOPLE magazine.

The couple flew from LAX to Paris Tuesday with her 5-year-old daughter Nahla in tow.  It remains a closely guarded secret whether the nuptials will take place on Martinez' home turf or whether the couple will travel to the Mediterranean - an area that he reportedly loves.

The actress revealed in April that she was pregnant - calling it "the biggest surprise of my life."

While the pair was attending the Champs-Elysees Film Festival in mid-June, the Frenchman revealed that the baby due in early fall is a boy.

Olivier gushed to Paris reporters, "My son will be an American."

Berry, 46, was previously married to baseball player David Justice and singer Eric Benet, relationships that were reportedly abusive and led her to attempt suicide.

She went on to co-habit with model Gabriel Aubry - the father of her daughter.  That partnership ended badly, with a contentious custody battle and a brawl in her front yard on Thanksgiving morning 2012.

Halle said emphatically in 2007, during an InStyle interview, "I will never, never get married again."  It appears that the mother-to-be has changed her mind.

halle berry and olivier martinez

Actress Halle Berry and boyfriend Olivier Martinez have confirmed during a trip to Paris that they are expecting a son.

He proudly revealed the news to PEOPLE, “My son will be an American, but I remain French."

Martinez shared the gender news at the opening night of Champs-Elysées Film Festival, where he is serving as this year's honorary president.

He claims walking the red carpet isn't really a big deal for him, “It’s not the first one, not the last I've been on. It’s part of the job.”

For the past two years he has lived in the United States with his actress fiancee and her daughter, “I’m French — it’s less important. Meaning, I remain a Frenchman in America, but I adapt to American culture. I feel good there — but I’m still a foreigner.”

Then he added for the second time, “My son will be an American.”

Berry, due to deliver her second child this fall, will be the special guest of honor Thursday night at another high profile festival event, where photographers will be swarming to capture her baby bump on the red carpet.

The actress shares custody of her 5-year-old daughter, Nahla, with ex-boyfriend, French model Gabriel Aubry.

Halle Berry was dressed to stun last night during a guest appearance on the 'Tonight Show,' a situation that wasn't lost on her host Jay Leno.

She wore a low-cut strapless dress that revealed a great deal of cleavage.  Frankly ... we aren't even sure what she talked about. We kid, we kid.

During her chat with Leno, the actress commented on another sexy gown, the Donatella Versace dress that she wore to the Oscars.

Berry said, “I had a conversation with Donatella Versace and told her that I really wanted to go to the Oscars as a Bond Girl, if a Bond Girl would go in 2013. So she came up with her idea of what it was, but she’s out of the country."

"She put it in a suitcase and shipped it here, and I got it the day before the Oscars.  I had some other dress I was going to wear, which was beautiful. But I pulled this out and it fit perfectly, and I just thought, ‘Wow.’”

Halle said she felt like she was "wearing a Ferrari" and then Jay of course took that to a whole different level --wondering if she could drive a stick.  It was kinda creepy coming from Jay.

Halle confirms she'll reprise her role as the weather-manipulating mutant Storm in 'X-Men: Days of Future Past.'

Check out Halle's Leno dress below.  Love it or hate it?

father and daughter reunited

Canadian model Gabriel Aubry has been reunited with his 4-year-old daughter Nahla one day after making peace with his ex-girlfriend Halle Berry.

Lawyers from both sides met on Thursday and "reached an amicable agreement."  A written statement indicated that terms of the settlement would not be shared with the media.

Reports indicate that Halle agreed to pay Aubry's medical bills and legal fees and would not seek a permanent restraining order against him if he would agree not to seek a restraining order against her fiance Olivier Martinez, the man who beat him to a pulp on Thanksgiving.

It appears the actress feared that if Aubry's lawyer was successful in court, a judge would legally forbid her boyfriend from coming in contract with Aubry and Nahla ... a move that would have forced him to move out of Halle's residence.

The viciousness of the attack against the male model certainly suggested that French actor Martinez is harboring a great deal of anger because he can't move Halle and Nahla to live with him in Europe.  Judges aren't fools and it appears Halle was led to understand she was treading on thin ice.

For now a truce is on and Gabriel was allowed to pick his young daughter up from her preschool yesterday afternoon and presumably resume his custodial rights.

Check out the latest photo of the reunited father-daughter duo.

halle berry and gabriel aubry feud

The tide may be turning against Halle Berry regarding the fierce beating Gabriel Aubry received on Thanksgiving at the hands of her French actor fiance Olivier Martinez.

The Canadian model's high profile lawyer Shawn Holley has already secured a temporary restraining order against Martinez and is heading back to court today to ensure that her client is able to resume parental custody visitations with his 4-year-old daughter Nahla.

We find it hard to imagine that Halle's ex-boyfriend would have come gunning for Martinez just days after winning yet another court victory that will ensure his daughter remains in California.

The French actor, on the other hand, is only in the country on a work visa and had hoped to move his fiancee and her daughter to Europe.   That certainly seems like the proper motivation to go after Aubry and then claim it was the other way around--with his high-profile girlfriend backing him up on what happened in her driveway.

Both men are in the country on work visas and Aubry's is coming up for renewal in December.  A crime conviction could spell disaster for him and possible deportation.

It seems likely that Martinez would suffer the same fate if he were to be convicted of assault and battery, though he has yet to be charged.  No wonder he was photographed at a Beverly Hills liquor store at 7:30 a.m. on the morning after the brawl.

Legal eagle Shawn Holley has gotten Lindsay Lohan out of numerous scrapes in the past but something tells us this will not be a slam dunk.

Check out the graphic injuries to Aubry's face below:

thanksgiving brawl at halle berrys home

Halle Berry watched in horror Thanksgiving morning when her ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry engaged in a physical brawl with her fiance Olivier Martinez.

The Canadian model was returning 4-year-old Nahla to her mother's home yesterday, when Martinez approached him in the driveway and reportedly told him, "We have to move on."

The comment was a reference to a recent court ruling that has blocked Berry's efforts to relocate with their daughter to Paris.

Punches were exchanged and when the dust settled Aubrey was rendered unconscious.  Both men were taken to Cedars Sinai Medical Center for treatment.  Gabriel, the most seriously injured, suffered a broken rib, facial contusions and a possible head injury.

He was later arrested and booked for misdemeanor battery with bail set at $20,000.

Olivier was treated for a hand and neck injury before returning to Halle's home. Check out the images below showing Martinez heading into her residence, with his Cedars medical release documents that indicate he used the alias James Smith.

The actress was reportedly granted an emergency protective order that will require Aubry not to get closer than 100 yards away from Halle, Olivier, or his daughter Nahla.

Despite the fact that police didn't cite Halle's fiance for possibly instigating the melee in retaliation for Aubry's recent court victory, we assume the Canadian will be filing charges of his own against Martinez.

In the meantime, it looks like Halle won't have to share custody of her daughter--something she has been been seeking for a very long time.

Developing story...
