Chris Noth and Neve Campbell Join Titanic Mini-series

Now that the image of young Leonardo DiCaprio slipping away into the Atlantic Ocean has had nearly a decade and a half to lose (some of) its sting, it seems that the world is ready for another round of Titanic-focused projects. In addition to ABC's upcoming Simon Vaughn–produced mini-series, simply called Titanic, the BBC is doing a fourteen-episode take on the tragedy: Titanic: Blood & Steel will chronicle the construction of the ship against the backdrop of the political unrest of Edwardian Belfast. Neve Campbell has signed on to play a reporter covering the Titanic's maiden voyage, while Chris Noth will play J.P. Morgan (who, based on our limited knowledge and imagination — tall, cigar-smoking American financier — was basically the Mr. Big of his time). [Deadline]
