Yet another reason to get HBO. Obi-Wan actor (and favorite of many in Club Jade) Ewan McGregor will play the role of Chip in The Corrections. The show is based on the award-winning 2001 novel by Jonathan Franzen, which was a best-seller and early pick of Oprah’s Book Club. (Franzen was the author who was infamously less than thrilled for his book to be chosen by the talk-show host.)
While the article states this is McGregor’s first television series, it’s technically not true — one of his first jobs was starring in the UK series Lipstick On Your Collar.
Not that we’re obsessed, or anything.
