Dom!
We actually made it to I Sell the Dead at the SF Indie Film Festival, and it was quite good. Darling, even. More comedy than horror, so I didn't have to hide too much. I didn't realize Dom narrates the whole thing, and I do love his voice. I even wrote a review on IMDB, I liked it that much :-)

DOM AND BILLY!!!
Together, clowning around at the Independent Spirit Awards. Squeeeee! Small pictures now, I'm sure there are more to come. spikessweetgirl brought those first links.

Viggo!
Good is playing at the Contra Costa Jewish Film Festival, March 5 (scroll way down or do a page search for Viggo). It's way out in the plastic suburb of Pleasanton, but I'm going anyway. If anyone else is going, I'd like to meet up.

Ian!
Ian's King Lear is showing on PBS Great Performances in March. It's on KQED, on Wednesday, Mar 25, at 8:00 pm. As they are broadcasting in High Def, and we have a new TV, I am hosting a Viewing Party, and hope some people will join me. Note that he did not do that scene nude, for whatever reason.


There. I feel much better!

This seems to have been inconsistent during the stage performances too, bizarrely. My parents saw it and he didn't do the nude bit. Two months later I saw it and there was definitely nudity.

I was trying to find a PBS page on this, and I was swamped with articles saying "Not Naked". I guess it's good PR? Anyway, I've only seen the play once so am looking forward to it.

I saw the televised version at Christmas, having seen it on stage last year. He seems to do what he did on stage (i.e. pull his trousers off), they just only show him from the waist up so you don't see anything.

Yay for the Dom & Billy pics!

I have no actual interest in Ian's penis, so am just as happy to avoid it.

Dom & Billy and you-know-who!

Hey, I know MrKinch is going to see 'Good' as she is one of the organizers of the festival. You might want to hook up with her. :)

She's not sure she can handle that movie, and I don't blame her a bit.

I read an interview, recently, in which Ian said he knew they weren't including the nude scene in the filming. He said he wasn't sorry, because perhaps the audience would concentrate more on the play than on his bare bits. With that I have to agree. Lear is not an easy play to start with. It needs concentration! :D xxx

That's pretty much how I was feeling about his bits.

I read King Lear as Kings of Leon.

Obsessed? Me?

ISTD is a fine film, and it's got lots and lots of Dom.

I recently picked up the DVD of King Lear from Amazon UK, and it is my precious now. I so wish that I could have seen it live (really, I chose the wrong year to do my MA, because as soon as I left the RSC began its year-long presentation of the entire canon. *pines!*) but I am so, so grateful that they filmed this production. Lear ismy very favouritest play (if I'm forced to choose) and Ian is...Ian. Masterful. I've never before seen a production that lived up to the vision of this play in my head, but now I can watch it over and over.

Gah. ♥

I'm conflicted -- we could get Bluray for better quality, but that machine can't really be hacked for DVD regions...

Last time I saw Midsummer Night's Dream, I had about seven different layers of memories and perspectives at the same time. It was great but weird!

I just saw the pics of Billy and Dom and it seems like the old times--not that I was there for the "old times," but the spirit of it :).

He did the nude scene - they re-edited it. Be sure to get the UK DVD

Hello - I was just wondering if you would be interested in affiliating with prosechallenge? It's obviously not a LOTR comm but as it's writing based and as fanfiction IS allowed :)
