Damian Lewis has stepped out of hit U.S. TV series Homeland and into complex negotiations to portray Henry VIII

Claire Foy has been asked to play the ruthlessly ambitious Anne Boleyn, while David Bradley has been in discussions about portraying Norfolk

Damian Lewis has stepped out of hit U.S. TV series Homeland and into complex negotiations to portray Henry VIII in the six-part BBC television adaptation of Hilary Mantel’s mammoth bestselling novels about the Machiavellian machinations at his court.

If a deal can be reached, Lewis, who played Nicholas Brody in Homeland, will join Mark Rylance, already cast as Thomas Cromwell, the monarch’s scheming but family-loving counsellor.

‘To have Damian playing opposite Mark will be electric,’ an executive on the project told me.

Other leading actors have also been offered major parts in the drama.

Claire Foy has been asked to play the ruthlessly ambitious Anne Boleyn, while David Bradley has been in discussions about portraying Norfolk.

Mark Gatiss, who stars in and writes for Sherlock, has been approached about a major part. (Gatiss is currently in Josie Rourke’s excellent Coriolanus at the Donmar.)

Damian has met with Peter Kosminsky, who will direct the epic screen version of Mantel’s two Man Booker Prize-winning fictional novels: Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies.

The actor is hoping he will be able to juggle dates on the film he’s shooting in Morocco — Queen Of The Desert, with Nicole Kidman — so he can portray the much-married king.

In Mantel’s telling, Henry goes from being an athletic, heroic figure to a middle-aged, balding hypochondriac who vacillates between romantic passion and murderous rages as he charges Cromwell to rid him of first wife Catherine of Aragon so he can marry Anne. Read the rest of this entry »

Claire Foy cast in NBC’s ‘Crossbones’

Posted by Mia with No Comments

Great news! Claire Foy has been cast alongside her ‘Going Postal‘ co-star Richard Coyle in NBC’s upcoming TV series ‘Crossbones‘:

British actor Richard Coyle (W.E.) has been cast as the co-lead opposite John Malkovich in the NBC pirate drama Crossbones. Also cast in the series, from Luther creator Neil Cross and producers Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald, are Claire Foy and Tracy Ifeachor.

Crossbones is set in 1715 on the Bahamian island of New Providence where the diabolical pirate Edward Teach, aka Blackbeard (Malkovich), reigns over a rogue nation of thieves, outlaws and miscreant sailors. To gain control of this fearsome society, Tom Lowe (Coyle), a highly skilled undercover assassin, is sent to the pirates’ haven to take down the brilliant and charismatic Blackbeard. But the closer Lowe gets, the more he finds that his quest is not so simple. Lowe can’t help but admire the political ideals of Blackbeard, whose thirst for knowledge knows no bounds. Foy will play Kate, the beautiful Governor’s daughter, now a pirate who works for Blackbeard and is a love interest for Lowe.

Ifeachor, repped by NB Management and UK’s United Agents, will play Nenna, a smart, powerful fighter who exhibits complete loyalty and a slight fear for Captain Blackbeard. Coyle, repped by IFA and Troika, had a major seasonlong arc on USA’s Covert Affairs as Annie’s love interest Simon Fischer. Cross wrote the script and is executive producing with Parkes, MacDonald and Ted Gold for Universal TV. David Slade is directing the opening episode.

Watch out for…

Posted by Anna with No Comments

Claire Foy, who will feature in Rosewater, written and directed by Daily Show host Jon Stewart. The film will shoot later this month on locations in Jordan and the UK.
Stewart’s movie is an adaptation of the 2011 book Then They Came For Me: A Family’s Story Of Love, Captivity And Survival, and is about the imprisonment in Iran’s notorious Evin prison of Maziar Bahari, an Iranian-born documentary film-maker and journalist who travelled from Canada to cover the 2009 presidential election in Tehran.
Bahari, accused of being a spy for MI6, the CIA, Mossad and bizarrely, Newsweek magazine, was held for 118 days, during which time his wife, Paola Gourley (Foy), a London-based lawyer, was experiencing a complicated pregnancy. Gael Garcia Bernal will portray Bahari, with Shohreh Aghdashloo as his mother.
Rosewater refers to the scent favoured by Bahari’s interrogator. Bahari had appeared on Stewart’s show before his Iranian ordeal.

Meet the Macbeths (James McAvoy & Claire Foy)

Posted by Mia with No Comments

from ATG’s Magazine / by Imogen Sarre & Jasper Rees

Roughly how old are the Macbeths?

We know they have had at least one child, presumed dead, but beyond that Shakespeare offers no further clue. Such is the trajectory of their moral degradation that audiences, and indeed casting directors, tend not to think of the Thane of Glamis and his wife as still having the bloom of youth on their cheeks. Thus the lead role can happily be taken on by someone in his 60s, as happened with Patrick Stewart when the play was most recently revived in the West End.

But now the Hollywood star James McAvoy brings the zip and springiness of someone known mainly for playing callow young men in the likes of The Last King of Scotland, Atonement and The Last Station. He turns 34 during his run in the role at the Trafalgar Studios, and the latest King of Scotland is joined in matrimony to Claire Foy, who turns 29 in April but looks young enough to have twice played teenagers in 2012: at the Royal Court in Mike Bartlett’s Love Love Love and in the BBC drama White Heat.
