Men in Kilts: How Did They Fit in That RV?

Well we are in to week two of the new series, Men in Kilts: A Roadtrip With Sam and Graham, with Sam Heughan and Graham McTavish. So far, so good. We see lots of amazing Scottish countryside, that just makes you want to have a tantrum over travel restrictions. Or makes you that much more determined to get back to Scotland.

The first two episodes went from “Food and Drink” to “Scottish Sports”, and a few things in between. The sport episode just shows you how much manly challenging these two do to one another, the jabbing and ribbing, and the gratuitous clips from Outlander. In episode two, Sam challenges Graham to several sports, and surprisingly, or not, Graham is much better at throwing a hammer than Sam. Very competitive these two are. And how two such big personalities could fit in the wee RV is amazing, it must be like a TARDIS on the inside.

Next week it’s “Song and Dance”, time to hit the cultured road of Scotland. Hope you can join us and have some repast from the Outlander Droughtlander.

What Happened to Graham McTavish and Paul Kavanagh’s TGOS Film?

As many of you were waiting for filming to start up on This Guest of Summer, Graham McTavish’s project with Paul Kavanagh, and many actors from both The Hobbit and Outlander series, delays in filming due to location changes were bumping production out into 2020. The this thing called the COVID pamdemic hit and filing all over the world shut down. Is this production many of the fans have been waiting for fated to sit on the shelf another year?

In the Fall of 2019, we were told that funding had been secured for production, and it was explained to many of us initial Indiagogo contributors that the monies we pledged were just for start up costs. Production had moved to the UK as filming was more cost effective. We thought we had something solid going again, alowing for productions ther actors were working on. Adding in production conflicts for all involved, was COVID 19 and McTavish’s commitment to Men In Kilts that killed TGOS filming? Or is it just shelved for another year? Inquiring minds want to know.

Recent searches for the now removed Facebook pages show it has been removed. Indeed, Graham’s own Facebook page hasn’t been updated since 2018 or so. IMDb shows the production is slated for a November 2021 release date and that it is still in pre-production. You can still see the Indieagogo page here.

Jacki Lippman, posted on the Indiagogo page in August to “Hang In There”.

So, here’s hoping that the production is just waiting for the industry to get going again, which may be some months. Recent large productions, such as Batman, have had to shut down because actors, in this case Robert Pattinson in the reboot, have caught COVID-19. It may be spring 2021 before any new filming can begin.

Incidentally, I contacted Lippman through the Indiagogo links and am waiting for a response. I made suggestions that videos with some of the actors lamenting the recent setback might be fun for us fans. Here’s hoping.

Sam Heughan and Graham McTavish Continuing Clanlands Production: Men In Kilts

Back in March, film production shut down all over the world with COVID-19 lockdowns. Sam and Graham’s new show Clanlands had finished the majority of the filming for the new Series on Starz®. Happy to report the Starz App has a preview placeholder for the series that showed up recently. And of course, Starz decided the show needed a name upgrade to Men in Kilts.

Outlander Star Duncan Lacroix May Just Pop Up in Men In Kilts

Sam and Graham have been posting on Instagram these last two weeks some great BTS shots. They were finally able to get together again and they are finishing up filming that was planned before the lockdown, and possibly filming for a second season? We’re waiting on the details for that. Lucky for us they spent the time in lockdown putting their book together for the series, that is being released in November this year. If you haven’t been to Scotland before, it’s sure to wet your appetite for travel to this fantastic country.
