Jude. Hey. Oh. Anyways, he’s signed on t’dotted line for-to be in Hamlet, as Hamlet, in a production that’ll be directed by Kenneth Branagh off-of (formerly) Emma Thompson. At the Donmar Warehouse in Covent Garden, in 2009. S’nice.
Michael Grandage, artistic director (ooooOOOOooooh) at the Donmar said the following, in relation to the above matter:
‘He is a muscular, visceral actor who has a very direct connection with raw emotion. It will potentially be a very different take on a play we have seen a lot in recent years.’
We’ll be the judge of that, blah.
ps. ‘Muscular, visceral actor’?
