Two French articles have recently announced that Jack Coleman will be a guest at the Monte Carlo Television Festival between June 10 and 14 this year. This festival celebrates great television shows and promotes popular shows currently shown in Europe or upcoming shows likely to be bought by European networks (esp. French-speaking ones). Here are some translated excerpts:
From the CW’s network, we’ll meet Rachel Bilson, star of Hart of Dixie and two members of the cast of Nikita: Xander Berkeley and Sarah Clarke. There will also be Jack Coleman, previously seen in Heroes and recently in The Vampire Diaries as Caroline’s father.

The next Monte Carlo Television Festival will welcome a smart set of people from June 10 to 14. The 2012 edition of this event is preparing to see the very best of American TV shows, with important figures like Chad Michael Murray (One Tree Hill), Jack Coleman (The Vampire Diaries, Heroes and also The Office), Jennifer Morrison (Doctor Cameron in House and the star of the new fantasy show Once Upon a Time that she will be presenting)…

It looks like Jack will likely be there to promote upcoming seasons of The Vampire Diaries and The Office, since France is usually a season behind compared to the USA. Or, you know, just because he’s awesome and very popular in French-speaking countries since Heroes. In any case, wishing him a great stay on our side of the world!
