The Project December 8-12

This week The Project has Nicole Kidman, Kevin Pietersen, Daniel Ricciardo, Damon Albarn and Jason Lewis.

We sit down with Nicole Kidman to talk about her latest film, Paddington. Based on the story of Paddington Bear, the movie also stars Hugh Bonneville, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent and Ben Whishaw as the voice of Paddington. The film, which is already a box office smash in the UK, opens in cinemas around the country on Thursday.

English cricketer Kevin Pietersen is one of the most prolific batsmen of all time. In 2013 he became England’s highest run-scorer in all international forms of the game. Kevin is in Australia to play for the Melbourne Stars and join TEN’s commentary team for the KFC T20 Big Bash League. He joins us at the desk to talk about his remarkable career.

We catch up with homegrown Formula One racing hero Daniel Ricciardo about his amazing year behind the wheel.

American actor Jason Lewis is sure to get pulses racing when he joins us at The Project desk. Best known for his role as Smith Jarrod in Sex And The City, he drops by for a chat.

In a television exclusive, we talk to UK musician and former Blur singer Damon Albarn. Described as one of the most important performers of his generation and one of the world’s most influential artists, Damon is in Australia playing concerts to celebrate the release of his critically acclaimed solo album, Everyday Robots.

Comedian Adam Hills is our special guest co-host on Wednesday and Thursday. Plus our regulars Anthony “Lehmo” Lehmann, Matt Doran, Steve Price, Fifi Box, Gorgi Coghlan, Natasha Stott Despoja, Meshel Laurie and Waleed Aly are with us across the week.
