Eloise Mumford is one of the most exciting cast members of The River, and she was actually the first actor signed to the show. We can’t wait to get to know her and her character Lena Landry. We have 17 pictures of Eloise in a gallery for you.


The River at Comic-Con 2011

14 Jul

The River is going to Comic-Con 2011, which will be a great addition for the conference, but it could be pivotal to the show finding an audience and surviving the cuts of a crowded primetime TV schedule. Here is what you need to know about The River at this year’s Comic-Con.


5 reasons why The River will kick television ass

3 Jul

We’ve blogged about The River for over a month now, which in many ways seems crazy considering the show won’t debut until December at the earliest or as late as March 2012. But it’s NOT crazy because The River will be one of the most talked about shows on television and it’s going to change television. Here’s why The River will be so very awesome.


Eloise Mumford is Lena Landry

As we’ve told you before, Eloise Mumford plays the role of Lena Landry in The River. Her character is often characterized as “sexy and resourceful.” But here’s what else you need to know about Lena.


Eloise Mumford Joins Twitter

Eloise Mumford plays Lena Landry in The River. We can’t wait to get to know her character. Lena is billed as “sexy and resourceful.” We also know that Eloise was the first cast in the show.

Here is a list of some of the Twitter accounts associated with the show:


Luisana Lopilato is NOT in The River

Eloise Mumford; not Luisana Lopilato

Luisana Lopilato, the cast member we were most excited about, is not even in The River. Internet rumors, backed up by sites like IMDB, led us all down a dead-end path. I had my suspicions, which were legitimized by our interview with actual cast member Jeff Galfer.


Paulina Gaitan stars as Jahel in The River

Paulina Gaitan Ruiz

The River will have wide international appeal with stars like Paulina Gaitan (Mexico), Joe Anderson (England), Luisana Lopilato (Argentina), Bruce Greenwood (Canada), Leslie Hope (Canada), Paul Blackthorne (England), Shaun Parkes (England), Daniel Zacapa (Honduras), Eloise Mumford (US), and Jeff Galfer (US). Stars like Gaitan and Lopilato are not yet well-known in the US, but they bring a strong international fan base.

Paulina Gaitan will play Jahel. Her character is a local girl with great mechanical skills. She is very skeptical of the rescue mission because she knows that nobody comes back from that area of the river, called Boiúna. Jahel only speaks Portuguese.

Outside of The River, Gaitan is known for her roles in Sin Nombre, Trade, and We Are What We Are.

We forgot Thomas Kretschmann from Germany!

Eloise Mumford was cast first in The River

14 Jun

Eloise Mumford was the first to sign on to Oren Peli’s The River. She’s pretty green in the acting world, but you may remember her from Fox’s failed Lone Star. She played the sweet, unsuspecting girlfriend.

Here’s a trailer from Lone Star. It’s a coincidence that the music is from Mumford & Sons (no relation).

Why is The River shot with documentary-style footage?

Thomas Kretschmann The River

Thomas Kretschmann stars as Captain Kurt Brynildson

You’d think they wouldn’t need to bring a big production crew along for Emmet’s rescue mission. It all comes down to funding:

To fund the rescue, they agree to let Dr. Cole’s cagey ex-producer, Clark (Paul Blackthorne), film the mission documentary-style. The mixed crew of old friends and new acquaintances includes the sexy and resourceful Lena (Eloise Mumford), loyal mechanic Emilio (Daniel Zacapa) and lethal bodyguard Captain Kurt Brynildson (Thomas Kretschmann).
