TERRITORY TIDBITS Sundance fun NT-raised acting brothers Liam and Chris (pictured) Hemsworth have been enjoying themselves at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah, US. Chris told a source about the gruelling diet and training regime he endured to pack on the muscle for his starring role in the upcoming Marvel Comics film adaptation of superhero Thor, including waking up at 3am to drink a power shake and do a punishing weights routine. Chris was making his first public appearance with his new wife, Spanish actress Elsa Pataky. Liam told the source about the epic bar crawl he and his brother enjoyed in Los Angeles to celebrate his 21st birthday after flying in from Phillip Island. Guesswho A shot of Tequila didnt go down very well or at all for one media identity on Friday night. She hurled over the table at a Darwin bar after attempting to consume the potent beverage and was seen leaving the venue not long after TVgig for Dan Multiple ARIA award winner and Territorian musician Dan Sultan performed at the launch of Adam Hills new show Adam Hills In Gordon St on Monday night. The show will premiere on February 9 at 8.30pm on ABC1. Rescuemission in CHARITY EVENT firies aid Face of the NT2NY firefighters campaign, Michael Hamilton TEN Territorian celebrity maidens will be living the female dream this Friday afternoon, when they play damsels in distress and are rescued from NT Parliament House by 16 burly firefighters. To launch the NT Fire and Rescue Service and NT Aviation Fire Fighters NT2NY initiative, the firemen will participate in a time-trial challenge. Donning full turnout gear, they will run up 14 flights of stairs to the top of NT House and each rescue a celebrity maiden on the way out of the building, before carrying her across the finish line. The line-up of ladies includes Hot 100s BackSeat announcer Sarah Passalick and Member for Solomon Natasha Griggs. Passalick said she was looking forward to being rescued by a firefighter. It will be interesting to see what a firefighter has to go through when rescuing someone in real life. The day is about showing us exactly how its done, she said. More than 200 community members are expected to attend the event. Funds raised via sponsorships and donations will help send 25 of the Territorys finest firefighters to New York from August to September for the 2011 World Police and Fire Games. NT2NY coordinator and firefighter Manny Koulakis said the project was very close to the firies hearts. While attending the games, we will also be in New York to commemorate 10 years since the devastating September 11 World Trade Centre attacks that claimed the lives of more than 2000 people, including 400 emergency service personnel, he said. Were very keen to be there and show our respects to our fallen comrades, and represent Australia and the NT in the World Games. Series held to ransom TELEVISION A scene from the new mini-series Kidnap and Ransom By CAINE EDWARDS IT APPEARS that recent rain and the TIO stadium curators inability to get the ground fit for use will upset more than just Darwin footy fans. Territorian viewers waiting for the anticipated ABC1 mini-series Kidnap and Ransom will have to wait for another week. The first episode which was due to screen on Friday February 4 has been pushed back to the 11th due to the venue change for the NTs AFL Indigenous All Stars Game. The AFL show-piece was due to be played at TIO stadium on February 5 but had to be re-located to Alice Springs after TIO was deemed un-playable. The re-location of the venue meant a resheduling of game-day as Traeger Park in Alice couldnt host the game on Saturday due to prior schedule commitments. Due to ABC1s commitment to broadcast the footy live, the premiere was forced to play second fiddle and was pushed back. The three part miniseries follows hostage negotiator Domonic King in his quest to bring down kidnapper Willard. The whole debacle is testament to the fact that you can never keep 100 per cent of people 100 per cent happy all of the time. COMPETITION Go on boys, bewild and enter Cleos comp Firass Dirani youve gotta be in it towin it FOR many Australian men, being crowned the countrys Most Eligible Bachelor in 2011 is a title worth fighting for. But Territorian blokes although renowned for their rough edges and no-holdsbarred approach seem happy to sit this one out. Wildcard nominations for the 2011 Cleo Bachelor of the Year competition remain open but so far the NT only has one entrant. The wildcard round winner will gain a spot in the Top 50 Most Eligible Bachelors, then be critiqued by judges who will announce the winner at the Cleo Bachelor of the Year party. Cleo editor Gemma Crisp said: The Cleo Wildcard winner will get to attend glamorous parties, events, photo shoots, meet swarms of admiring ladies and even go on to win one of the biggest media competitions of the year. Were on the hunt for a guy who has bucketloads of charisma but isnt up himself; who loves a good time but also has a serious side; who looks after himself but cant say no to a chicken parmigiana while watching the footy at the pub on Friday nights . . . the Cleo Bachelor Wildcard could change your life, but remember, youve gotta be in it to win it. Eligible bachelors can nominate themselves or be nominated by their friends via Cleos website. Last years Wildcard winner was New South Wales personal trainer and model, Todd Finlay. Underbelly actor Firass Dirani was named 2010 Cleo Bachelor of the Year.
