His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco Attends the Davis Cup Match at the Monte-Carlo Country Club. Plus, Other News.

On Friday, April 6, 2012, His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco was at the Monte-Carlo Country Club to attend the Davis Cup match between Ryan Harrison and Jo-Wilfred Tsonga.  The sovereign prince also met with the quarter-final Davis Cup teams as well as the President of the FFT, Mr. Jean Gachassin, and team captains, Mr. Guy Forget and Mr. Jim Courier.

Meanwhile, the Hollywood Reporter claims that actress Nicole Kidman is in “talks” to play the late Princess Grace in Olivier Dahan’s upcoming movie, Grace of Monaco.  The script, written by Arash Amel, apparently is not a:

… biopic and instead focuses on a six-month period in 1962 when the city-state got into a heated dispute with France, which grew tired of the petite principality being a tax haven. Kelly, still relatively new in her role as princess, maneuvered behind the scenes to save Monaco from a coup.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, again, the film is being compared to “…the tone of the King’s Speech.”  Great.  But, Nicole Kidman as the amazing late Princess Grace of Monaco?!

I don’t think so.
