More News from ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Adaptation

Ok so let’s just catch up on our Handmaid’s Tale news. The series was picked up by Hulu. It’s due out this fall. Elizabeth Moss is the protagonist. Samira Wiley is Moira. Bruce Miller is directing. It’s looking pretty good so far, and looking even better with the newest addition to the cast! 

Ladies and gentlemen, the infamous Commander, Fred Waterford, will be played byyyyy…….Joseph Fiennes! Who is Joseph Fiennes, you ask? It’s Ralph (pronounced Ray, for some reason?) Fiennes’ brother. Who is Ralph Fiennes? It’s Voldemort. Don’t they look exactly the same? 

Personally, I think Joseph is a little too dashing to play the bashful and impotent commander, but maybe they can geek him up a tad.

I’m also excited to see Elisabeth Moss and Joseph Fiennes play scrabble, for some reason. 

Well, that’s all we got. Stay tuned for more updates!
