Nikki DeLoach is 'Taking The Reins' in New Hallmark Movie | Celebrity Page

Giddy up, Hallmark fans!



Nikki DeLoach has starred in several Hallmark movies over the years.

This time around, in Taking The Reins, DeLoach plays Samantha, a writer who returns to her family ranch. While there, she finds the one person she has been running from: her ex husband Luke, played by Friday Night Lights star Scott Porter.

"It's his introduction into the world of Hallmark. I have wanted to pull him into the fray for such a long time... He is not just such a great partner and a great teammate and a great actor, he is such a good human being," DeLoach said.

Although she sings his praises in real life, in Taking The Reins, Samantha and Luke are not quite as fond of each other. At least not at first.

"What we really wanted to explore was people who pursue something their whole life and then wake up one day and wonder 'Am I pursuing this because it's my passion and it's something I love? Or am I pursuing this because it's all I know?'"

Taking The Reins premieres Saturday, September 25th, on Hallmark Channel.

Get ready Netflix fans! The platform just announced that two of its biggest stars are joining together for their newest movie.

Netflix revealed to TODAY that their latest film project is bringing Joey King, from The Kissing Booth, and Chase Stokes, from Outerbanks, together to play the two lead roles.

The new movie is an adaptation based off of the hit young adult sci-fi series Uglies by Scott Westerfield. Rumors about a film adaptation for the series have been circulating since the first novel's release, so Netflix's announcement comes as quite the pleasant surprise for fans.

Netflix had already teased that King was joining the cast for Uglies, however Stokes' involvement in the production was completely unknown until Tuesday. Along with announcing Stokes as the latest addition to the cast, Brianne Tju, from MTV's Scream, and Keith Powers, from the Freeform drama Famous in Love, will also be joining.

Uglies takes place in a dystopian society where beauty standards are taken to whole new extremes. Instead of getting your driver's permit at 16, teenagers are instead forced to get a complete reconstructive surgery, making them absolutely flawless--but that seems to be the flaw.

King is set to play the main protagonist of the film, Tally Youngblood, who will do literally anything to avoid her surgery. The roles of Stokes, Tju, and Powers still have yet to be released.

Uglies will be directed by Joseph McGinty Nichol, also known as McG, and Krista Vernoff is heading the screenplay adaptation. King will be executive producing the film alongside Jamie King, John Fox, and Scott Westerfield himself.

A premiere date for Uglies has yet to be disclosed.
