British deviser of upmarket period soap operas, Julian Fellowes, has left the Abbey of Downton and put his mind to adapting a story about the trendiest star-crossed couple in literature onto the big screen like never before. It's set in the time that it was set in—so expect flouncy dresses, masks, swordplay, balconies, and probably no Hawaiian shirts or "Verona Beach" goofin'.
1/18 — While cruising the Santa Monica Farmer's Market for breakfast, spotted DAMIAN LEWIS. Haven't seen his latest series but recognized him from Band of Brothers. Cute, doting dad and seemed comfortable with the crowd. He was waiting to put one of his small children on the miniature pony rides (note to Farmer's Market organizers: Please move the ponies farther away from the Omelet Guy). He looked good, but shorter than expected (both the actor and pony). [Hollywood PrivacyWatch is written by and for Defamer readers; send your sightings to firstname.lastname@example.org.]
