The couple, whose on-screen characters in 'The Americans' are also in a relationship, are expecting their first baby.
The couple began dating when they met on the set of the FX spy drama in 2013, and a report by Us Weekly on Wednesday suggested that they were expecting their first child together. “Keri is more than four months along. It’s so exciting for them,” a source told the publication.
Russell, 39 years old and a former star of ‘Felicity’ and of movies like Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, has two children (daughter Willa, 4, and son River, 8) from her seven-year marriage to ex-husband Shane Deary, which ended in 2013.
Mel Gibson is honoured at Czech festival, while the Apes sequel and What If premiere in New York, and Legend and Grimsby film on streets around London. Plus new trailers for heavy-hitters Exodus, Gone Girl and Foxcatcher...
This is a week when most attention was on the sporting world, with the Wimbledon finals, the Formula One British Grand Prix and the Tour de France starting in Britain, and of course the World Cup in Brazil. So most people didn't notice that the Karlovy Vary Film Festival kicked off in the Czech Republic by awarding Mel Gibson with the Crystal Globe for outstanding artistic contribution to world cinema. The festival wraps up on Saturday. Here's Mel Gibson at the 49th Karlovy Vary International Film Festival - Mad Max screening .
Meanwhile in New York, the stars turned out on Tuesday for the premiere of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Cast members Andy Serkis and Keri Russell were joined by visiting filmmakers Darren Aronofsky and Paul Haggis and actors Alex Karpovsky and Bridget Moynahan. The film opens this week in the US and next week in the UK. Here's a Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes clip to get you in the mood.
In a post-apocalyptical Earth inhabited by only the few humans who survived the viral pandemic that wiped out most of human civilisation less than ten years ago, man and ape are at war. A troop of genetically modified apes have taken over the planet led by the enraged and long-suffering Caesar; the first ape to have been modified enough to develop human speech and intelligence. Determined not to let humankind rule over them as they once did, the apes will stop at nothing to make sure they are never subjected to brutal scrutiny ever again. However, Caesar knows deep down that there are still good men in the world, and he also knows that if those men and his primate family don't work together to create peace in the world, it will be the end of all of them.

Jon Favreau's new movie 'Chef,' has got our mouths watering. Here's our top five favourite films about food. WARNING: Don't watch on an empty stomach!
Jon Favreau’s new film Chef was released last weekend to nearly unanimously positive reviews. Gary Goldstein of the Los Angeles Times raved, “Favreau is flat-out terrific. Warm, dimensional and intuitive, his Carl proves an ideal combo of top dog and underdog - as well as a thoroughly credible kitchen master.”
Jon Favreau's new movie Chef has gone down a storm with the critics
Praise for Favreau and the script aside, hardly a single critic doesn’t recommend making sure you watch Chef on a full stomach. The tantalising dishes served up are just too much to take if you’ve skipped lunch. We recommend stocking up on snacks before watching these fantastic food movies, too.

'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' star Danny Devito is seen looking cheerful as he arrives at the Media Presents: 'Fargo' event at The Paley Center in New York alongside his 'Taxi' co-star Carol Kane and daughter Lucy DeVito.
If Matt Reeves' synopsis doesn't get you pumped, the new stills should do the trick.
Let’s just slip into geek out mode for a few minutes with these ten new Dawn of the Planet of the Apes stills released by Empire Magazine and USA Today, among others. The stills reveal nearly the entire cast of Dawn characters, some really cool CGI and the biggest news of all – it looks like the formerly mild-mannered and lovable Caesar is now wielding a shotgun.
Watch the Dawn teaser trailer below.
We also get several glimpses of the apes, which have well and truly taken over the world by the time of the film. The virus, released in Rise has by this point wiped almost all of humanity, including James Franco’s character from the previous film (or his contract expired, both valid possibilities). Either way, the main protagonist is now Gary Oldman’s character, the leader of a small band of survivors, whom we’ve already seen give a rousing speech in one Dawn trailer. Oldman stars alongside Jason Clarke and Keri Russell, the other leaders of the colony, which settles just outside of San Francisco.
True Detective and House of Cards might have a contender in The Americans as its second season impresses the critics.
Returning to a series that has enjoyed a strong first season is always a risk: expectations are doubled, and the job of pleasing fans increasing exponentially the further you go on; the further you desensitise them from what you have to say. The Americans, which is primarily a drama about relationships and marriage while the backdrop of war and espionage provides its steely edge, premiered last night on FX with its second season, and re-enters a TV space filled with stern competition. But if the critical response is anything to go by, it’ll soon become one of the most talked about shows of 2014.
“FX's The Americans does the near-impossible of making viewers cheer for Russian spies in America and at the same time for the American FBI agents who are trying to unmask those Russians living in suburbia. It's an incredibly deft balancing act that's accomplished through strong character development all around,” writes Rob Owen of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Keri Russell splits with Shane Deary - and the news comes after frightening burglary at her New York home.
Keri Russell had announced her separation from husband Shane Deary only days after being subjected to a burglary while she slept.
It's been a tough time for the 'Felicity' star as she confirms to People that she and her husband of nearly seven years have split up, separating in the summer of 2013. "They have been separated since early summer," a representative told the publication.
"The separation is amicable and their focus is on their children." The pair married on Valentine's Day in 2007 and subsequently had two children named River Russell Deary and Willa Lou Deary.

Fans of romantic fiction may enjoy this gimmicky comedy, which cleverly plays around with Jane Austen's fiction but kind of misses its own joke. The screenwriters seem to think they're combining sudsy fantasy with darker realism. But actually everything on screen is plainly ridiculous, only livened up by a couple of the actors.
The story starts in America, where Jane (Russell) is so obsessed with Austen's novels that she's sure Mr Darcy is coming for her any day now. So she spends her savings on a holiday at Austenland in England, where Mrs Wattlesbrook (Seymour) lets her clients live as if they're in a 19th century novel. Jane's only fellow guests are Elizabeth and Amelia (Coolidge and King), both of whom flirt shamelessly with Nobley, Andrews and East (Feild, Callis and Whittle), the actors on hand to play dashing bachelors. But Jane is more interested in sexy stable boy Martin (McKenzie).
As the script strains to layer romance and fantasy into this goofy set-up, there are a few snappy one-liners that get us laughing, thanks mainly to the expert improvisation skills of Coolidge, who can make anything funny. By contrast, Russell is annoyingly naive and sulky, while King tips the opposite way into broad farce. The men are more interesting because we occasionally get to see them as the actors they really are, but none of them are very complex, and we can guess where the story is going from the start.

Take a look at this trailer for Austenworld.
The premise of Austenland is simple – by today’s standards at least - Jane Hayes loves everything Jane Austin and Pride & Prejudice. She loves the regency era, the clothes, the accents and the drama, but most of all, she well and truly loves Mr. Darcy. We’ve all been there, right? (I’m talking to the boyfriends).
McKenzie and Russell look wistfully into the sky
As if filling her with bedroom all manner of Austen-themed memorabilia wasn’t enough, Hayes – played by Keri Russell – embarks on an adventure to the ultimate Austen experience in England, something that strips her of her life savings. But, hang on a minute; the world that Austen brought to life in her books isn’t actually that swell. Where’s the Internet? Facebook? NO CONTACT MUSIC?! Well this won’t do.
Keri Russell plays an undercover Russian spy in the new FX series The Americans, which premieres tomorrow (January 30, 2013). In an interview with USA Today, Russell explains what attracted her to the role. And for the record? It really wasn’t the costume designs. The Americans is set in the 190s and we all know what that decade did for fashion. Luckily for Keri, the complexity of the role was enough of a draw that she was able to overlook the contents of her character’s wardrobe.
“I wanted to do it because I love high-waisted jeans, and I'm trying to bring them back,” joked Keri, sarcastically (though possibly unaware that people have been bringing back high-waited jeans for some months now). Any fashion that accentuates wide hips and tapers in at the ankles is amazing and something everyone should wear.” Look beyond the attire, though and Elizabeth (Keri’s character) is an interesting proposal. She’s so indoctrinated into the world of spying, that she is in an arranged marriage with another spy, with whom she lives a seemingly idyllic life in suburbia.
“It's so far from a procedural show," explains Keri. "Elizabeth is not the best mom. She's kind of cold. As we get deeper, we get to really explore the characters and ideas and the intricacies of how everything will affect this bizarre situation, this arranged marriage." Russell was drawn to Elizabeth’s determination and commitment to her job, too: “She wants to be a really good soldier. That's her identity, and she wants to do it well. She's given everything to (the KGB). She's had kids with this stranger. She can't back down now.” The Americans airs at 10pm ET/WT, Wednesday.
