Hollywood Joseph Encounters The Americans

Why has a submarine mysteriously appeared  in the middle of Hollywood?  Our favorite Hollywood Wax Museum employee, Joseph, has some answers!

It’s not every day you see a submarine breaking through cement at Hollywood & Highland center!  YES, you are reading correctly…I couldn’t believe my eyes either!  Turns out this was FX Network’s imaginative way of promoting its much-anticipated series The Americans that premiered last Wednesday.  After checking out the massive replica of a Cold War era Soviet submarine – complete with USSR propaganda and Russian soldiers – I immediately added the show to my DVR recordings.  It’s quite a thriller!!

Submarine At Hollywood & Highland Center to promote The Americans

Set in the 1980’s, Phillip (Matthew Rhys) and Elizabeth Jennings (Keri Russell) appear to be a typical American couple living in Washington DC with their two kids.  In reality, they are both KGB spies!!!  Side note: Do any of you remember the WB hit Felicity starring Keri Russell?  Well let me tell you, she’s a far cry from a sweet and lovable character in “The Americans”!

Joseph With Russian Soldier From The AmericansI had just enough time to walk over during my lunch break from The Hollywood Wax Museum and snap some photos of the scene.  Felt like I was right in the middle of the Cold War – very eery with all those Soviet soldiers marching around the courtyard.  I’d guess the promotion was quite a success – it definitely caught my eye!!

 

 

Secrets, spies and lots of action…sounds intriguing, Joseph!  Thanks for the full report! Will you be watching “The Americans” tonight at 10pm on FX Network?
