Ben Whishaw Special: SPECTRE, LONDON SPY & More

Ben Whishaw

2015 has been a hugely exciting year for our brilliant client BEN WHISHAW, and it’s about to get even better! As his star shines ever brighter, BEN can be seen performing in numerous current and upcoming film, television and theatre roles, including the latest instalment to the James Bond franchise, Spectre, and soon-to-air contemporary spy thriller London Spy. Read on for a full breakdown of all BEN‘s exciting projects…

Untitled-99

Released this week after its massive world premiere at the Royal Albert Hall on Monday night, Spectre is now showing in UK cinemas, starring BEN in the iconic role of technical wizard ‘Q’. BEN first appeared as the character in 2012’s monumental Skyfall, which has since gone on to become the best performing James Bond film of the franchise, topping $1.1 billion worldwide. Looking set to follow in its footsteps, Spectre sees Daniel Craig reprising the role of Bond as he trails an undercover, sinister organisation, slowly peeling back layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind its operations.

BEN‘s role as MI6 gadget guru ‘Q’ is even bigger this time around and, according to The Guardian, he “steals the show, even from James Bond!” If you haven’t seen the movie yet – go immediately, it’s awesome!

BEN can also be seen starring in two more feature films currently screening in UK cinemas. The first is The Lobster, director Yorgos Lanthimos’ blackly hilarious science fiction comedy drama set in a dystopian near future where finding love is a matter of life or death. BEN stars opposite Colin Farrell, Rachel Weisz, Olivia Colman and HH client JOHN C. REILLY in this unconventional film, which won the Grand Jury Prize at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival.

BEN also stars as Carey Mulligan’s unsympathetic husband Sonny in Suffragette, Sarah Gavron’s big screen dramatisation of the early feminist movement. He stars alongside Meryl Streep, Helena Bonham Crater and Brendan Gleeson, and the film is now showing across all mainstream cinemas. dividerLONDON-SPY-_FIRST-LOOK-IMAGE_BBC-AMERICA-1024x614

High up on our list of “must-see” television this year is the BBC’s upcoming espionage thriller London Spy, which premieres on UK television screens on November 9th at 9pm on BBC Two, starring BEN in the lead role.

The exciting and fast-paced spy thriller was created by acclaimed best-selling author Tom Rob Smith (Child 44), directed by Jakob Verbruggen (The Fall, The Bridge [US]) and consists of five one-hour-long episodes.

In what is set to be a gripping, contemporary and emotional thriller, BEN stars as Danny, an innocent, gregarious, hedonistic young romantic who is drawn into a dangerous world of espionage when he falls for the anti-social, enigmatic and brilliant Alex (played by Edward Holcroft) who works at the headquarters of the Secret Intelligence Service. But just as they realise they’re perfect for each other, Alex disappears. Danny, utterly ill-equipped to take on the complex and codified world of British espionage, must decide whether he’s prepared to fight for the truth.

BEN is joined on screen by award-winning actors Jim Broadbent and Charlotte Rampling OBE, as well as HH clients SAMANTHA SPIRO and ZRINKA CVITESIC. London Spy will also be distributed by NBC Universal and BBC Worldwide in America, with a transmission date still to be confirmed. But in the meantime, do not miss the UK television premiere on November 9th! Check out the trailer below:

And if that wasn’t enough, BEN can also be seen starring in two further mainstream cinema releases this year: he will appear in Tom Hooper’s The Danish Girl, falling in love with a transgender Eddie Redmayne, and as Moby-Dick author Herman Melville in the the massive whaling saga In the Heart of the Sea, directed by Ron Howard. Both films will be released this Christmas and you can check out the trailers below.

dividerUntitled-1

Finally, you can see BEN back on the stage next year as he heads over to Broadway to star as John Proctor in a new revival of Arthur Miller’s classic Salem witch trials drama The Crucible, opposite Saoirse Ronan as selfish accuser Abigail Williams and HH client SOPHIE OKONEDO as Elizabeth Proctor. Directed by Ivo van Hove and with a newly-composed score by Philip Glass, the production is set to premiere on Broadway next spring in a 20-week limited engagement, with previews beginning on February 29th and Opening Night set for April 7th. Get your tickets here!

THE LAST WITCH HUNTER Arrives

Untitled-2

Director Breck Eisner’s big-budget, supernatural action film The Last Witch Hunter opens in UK cinemas this weekend, starring HH clients ROSE LESLIE and JOSEPH GILGUN.

Set in present day America, the film stars Vin Diesel as an immortal witch-hunter tasked with the job of coming between the covens of New York City and their goal to destroy humanity by way of a horrific plague. In order to accomplish this, he must enact something he thought he would never do and partner up with a beautiful female witch – a ‘dream walker’ named Chloe – played by ROSEJOSEPH stars as the villainous Ellic, a shapeshifting, child-and-priest-murdering baddie! Elijah Wood and Michael Caine also star.

Go check out all the supernatural fun on the big screen this weekend. Here’s the massive trailer to get you in the mood:

Oyelowo’s OTHELLO!

othello

Exciting news! It’s just been announced that Daniel Craig and HH client DAVID OYELOWO will star opposite each other next year in an Off Broadway stage production of Shakespeare’s Othello.

The production is sure to be one of the hottest tickets of the next theatrical season, with DAVID starring in the title role and Daniel Craig playing his infamous tormentor, Iago. On board to direct is one of New York’s most in-demand directors, Sam Gold, who this year won the Tony Award as best director for his work on the musical Fun Home. This will be the first time Gold has professionally directed a play by Shakespeare.

Othello will be staged by New York Theater Workshop, a prestigious but small nonprofit theatre that plans to present the work in a 199-seat venue for a limited run in the autumn of 2016. The theatre has not yet announced the production’s dates or duration, but we’ll let you know as soon as the tickets go on sale.

We can’t wait!

CUFFS – Starts Next Week!

cuffs pic for blog

Cuffs is a fresh, authentic, contemporary eight-part cop show for the BBC, introducing HH client JACOB IFAN in his first leading television role. It premieres next Wednesday 28th October at 8pm on BBC One.

A visceral drama that takes the audience on an exhilarating ride through the challenges of frontline policing in the vibrant and alternative seaside city of Brighton, Cuffs is BBC One’s first drama commission in the 8pm slot in eight years and is packed full of humour, humanity and colourful characters. JACOB stars as PC Jake Vickers opposite Ashley Walters as PC Draper and Amanda Abbington as their Detective Sergeant Jo Moffat. HH client LUCY RUSSELL also stars in the show as Meredith Pryce.

Both a character-led drama and a police procedural, Cuffs is a show where the cops are forced to deal with everything the job throws at them and where work-based pressures are never left at the station door. Every episode sees the characters put their lives on the line to protect the public: from a booby-trapped cannabis farm in a suburban semi, to an elderly farmer’s wife with a shotgun – this is a job fraught with danger. But the high stakes are also matched with more absurd altercations such as a middle-class dog-napping and naturists fighting on the beach!

The show is produced by Tiger Aspect Productions and created by Julie Gearey (Prisoners’ Wives). Make sure you tune in for its debut next Wednesday. Here’s the trailer:

4 Major HH Movies Released This Week

Untitled-1

It’s a great week for big screen releases as four major feature films starring HH clients open in UK cinemas tomorrow.

First up is masterful director Guillermo del Toro’s highly anticipated gothic horror Crimson Peak, starring TOM HIDDLESTON. It tells the story of aspiring horror novelist Edith (played by Mia Wasikowska) who soon finds herself drawn into a nightmare horror story of her own when she is swept off her feet by dashing young nobleman Sir Thomas Sharpe, played by TOM.  Leaving for England to start a new life together at the Cumbrian ancestral home of Thomas and his sister Lucille (played by Jessica Chastain), Edith soon discovers the house to be bursting with hellish secrets.

Beautifully designed from the opening frame, Crimson Peak is drenched in rich colour and a beautiful score, paying homage to 50s and 60s big-screen gothic along the way. It’s simultaneously frightening, gory, camp, creepy, mysterious and fun, with a spectacularly sinister performance from TOM, all combining to create a pleasurably grand piece of classic horror. Go see!

dividerUntitled-2

Also released this week is Suffragette, starring HH clients BEN WHISHAW and ROMOLA GARAI. The film tracks the story of the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement; women who were forced underground to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an increasingly brutal State. Radicalised and turning to violence as the only route to change, they were willing to lose everything in their fight for equality – their jobs, their homes, their children and their lives.

Carey Mulligan stars as Maud, a character who sets out on a heart-breaking and inspirational fight for dignity. BEN stars as Maud’s husband Sonny, ROMOLA plays Alice Haughton and Meryl Streep appears as leading revolutionary figure Emmeline Pankhurst. Helena Bonham Carter, Brendan Gleeson, Anne-Marie Duff and Samuel West also star.

dividerUntitled-3

The third of this week’s big screen releases is The Lobster, starring HH-ers BEN WHISHAW and JOHN C. REILLY. This unconventional and thoroughly entertaining science fiction comedy drama is the English-language debut of Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos and also stars Colin Farrell, Rachel Weisz, Olivia Colman and Lea Seydoux.

This blackly funny love story takes place in a dystopian near future where finding love is a matter of life or death as single people, according to the rules of The City, are taken to The Hotel where they are obliged to find a matching mate in forty-five days. If they fail, they are transformed into beasts and sent off into The Woods. BEN plays a character called the Limping Man and JOHN is the Lisping Man!

The Lobster was selected to compete for the Palme d’Or at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival, where it won the Jury Prize. It was also shown in the ‘Special Presentations’ section of the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival and its script was awarded the A.R.T.E. International Prize for Best CineMart 2013 Project at the 42nd Rotterdam International Film Festival. It opens in selected UK cinemas tomorrow. 

dividerUntitled-4

And last but by no means least, the fourth big release this week is director Stephen Frears’ The Program, an adaptation of Sunday Times journalist David Walsh’s exposé of cyclist and doping cheat Lance Armstrong and his fall from grace. Ben Foster stars as the deceitful and manipulative Armstrong, Guillaume Canet plays his pusher, the Italian physician Michele Ferrari, Dustin Hoffman makes a cameo as Bob Hamman and Chris O’Dowd stars as Armstrong’s foil Walsh.

Throughout the film, we watch as O’Dowd’s journalist is shunned by the rest of the reporting pack after confronting Armstrong, and how Walsh’s colleagues side with the cheating celeb, star-struck and self-interested, despite knowing he’s suspect. Such dishonour is nicely counterpointed with the comradeship between cyclists, one of whom is captain of the U.S. Postal Service cycling team Frankie Andreu, played brilliantly by HH client EDWARD HOGG.

The film acts as a comprehensive demolition of a disgraced cheat who was the focus of one of sporting history’s biggest scandals. Go see it on the big screen this weekend, along with all of this week’s other releases.

THE HAIRY APE at The Old Vic

thehairyape2

A brand new stage adaptation of celebrated playwright and Nobel prize-winner Eugene O’Neill’s iconic piece of American drama The Hairy Ape opens at London’s Old Vic Theatre this weekend – Saturday 17th October – starring Olivier Award-winning HH client BERTIE CARVEL in the lead role.

A timeless story of class and identity, The Hairy Ape tells the story of Yank, played by BERTIE, a labourer who revels in his status as the strongest stoker on a transatlantic ocean liner. But when Yank is called a ‘filthy beast’ by the overbred daughter of a steel merchant, he experiences an awakening of consciousness that leads him on a journey through the wealthy neighbourhoods and disenfranchised underbelly of New York society. Searching for a way to belong, Yank is forced to confront primal questions about his true place in the world.

Directed by the acclaimed, multi-award-winning director Richard Jones, the show opens at the Old Vic this weekend for a limited run until 21st November. We urge you to get your tickets asap as they’re selling like hot cakes! See all dates and book your tickets here.

BERTIE has most recently appeared as the fantastically odious Simon in BBC One’s Doctor Foster and we can’t wait to see him back on stage in what is sure to be another incredible performance. Get your tickets asap and you can check out a short interview with BERTIE and Richard Jones below:

CHINA: TREASURES OF THE JADE EMPIRE

Untitled-1

This Sunday 18th October, tune into Channel 4 at 8pm for the fascinating documentary China: Treasures Of The Jade Empire, narrated by HH Voice client PAUL McGANN.

The Han emperors led sophisticated, opulent lives and were buried with stunning treasure in magnificent mausoleums. Now archaeologists are using cutting-edge technology to look inside these tombs for the first time, revealing the extraordinary treasures and relics found in the tombs of China’s Han Dynasty. The era is generally considered the golden age of ancient China, rivalling the Roman empire for international power, and has been a defining influence on the country’s cultural identity ever since. This cutting edge documentary examines how the emperors arranged to have their dead bodies mummified in the search for immortality and looks at a newly discovered version of the famous terracotta army.

Tune in on Sunday to witness these fascinating new discoveries (and to hear PAUL‘s excellent narration talents in full swing!)

Marking the great poet Dylan Thomas’ centenary and beautifully shot in black-and-white, the fascinating semi-biographical drama Set Fire To The Stars focuses on a week in the life of the alcoholic Thomas as he prepares for a series of performed readings in the USA. CELYN wrote the BAFTA-nominated screenplay for the film and also stars in the lead role as Dylan Thomas himself, opposite both Elijah Wood and SHIRLEY, who plays the neurotic ‘Shirley’.

Congratulations team!

BILL – In Cinemas Now

662

Brand new movie comedy Bill is out now and showing in UK cinemas nationwide, starring HH client MATHEW BAYNTON in the titular role.

This irreverent slapstick comedy tells the hilarious tale of William Shakespeare as you’ve never seen him before. The movie shows what really happened during Shakespeare’s ‘Lost Years’ – how hapless country bumpkin and hopeless lute player, Bill Shakespeare, leaves his family and home to follow his dream. It’s a fun tale of murderous kings, spies, lost loves and a plot to blow up Queen Elizabeth!

Bill was created by and stars the BAFTA Award-winning lead cast of the BBC’s Horrible Histories and Sky One’s Yonderland – MATHEW, Simon Farnaby, Martha Howe-Douglas, Jim Howick, Laurence Rickard and Ben Willbond, who together play 40 roles in the film, with MATHEW playing the lead role of the Bard himself! The cast is also joined by Helen McCrory (Skyfall, Harry Potter) and Damian Lewis (HomelandBand of Brothers) and the film was cast by HH client ROSALIE CLAYTON.

Follow the movie on Twitter @BillTheFilm and, most importantly, go see it now on the big screen! Check out the trailer below:

THIS IS ENGLAND ’90

thisisengland90

Shane Meadows’ nostalgic, multi award-winning, hit drama series ‘This Is England’ returned to our television screens on Sunday night with its latest instalment, This Is England ’90, starring our brilliant client JOSEPH GILGUN.

A spin-off from the 2006 film This Is England and a sequel to previous series This Is England ’86 and This Is England ’88, this latest installment takes a trip back to 1990, with all the sublime music, baggy fashions, rave culture and crazy shenanigans that marked that decade’s beginning. The new show also sees us reunited with the characters we’ve loved and followed along the way, including Milky, Gadget, the lovelorn Shaun and his perpetually worried mum, and the wonderful husband and wife duo Woody (played by JOSEPH) and Lol (Vicky McClure) who, two years down the road, are now a house husband and dinner lady, raising two kids in chaotic but cosy domesticity.

With Sunday’s opening episode showing scenes that perfectly captured the political landscape of the time, the hedonistic joy of that era and the comedowns that soon followed, we can’t wait to see where the four-part show takes us next. Tune in every Sunday at 9pm on Channel 4.

And if you missed Episode One, watch it now on 4OD. Here’s the series trailer:

A gripping drama that examines human emotions and the decisions we make, this is gearing up to be a big summer hit! Tune in tonight at 9pm on BBC One for the opening episode. Here’s the trailer:

Amazon’s HAND OF GOD

Untitled-2

Tomorrow, Friday 4th September, brand new Amazon Original Series Hand Of God will become available in its entirety for exclusive streaming on its Amazon Prime platform.

Hand Of God is a 10-episode psychological drama examining themes of vengeance, faith and justice and stars Ron Perlman, Dana Delany and HH client JULIAN MORRIS in the leading roles.

Ron Perlman (Sons Of Anarchy) plays Harris Pernell, a morally corrupt judge who, in the middle of a breakdown, believes God is guiding him on a path of vigilante justice as he attempts to hunt down the man who raped his daughter-in-law and caused his now comatose son to attempt suicide. Dana Delany (Desperate Housewives) plays his take-no-prisoners wife and JULIAN stars as Reverend Paul Curtis, a smarmy soap-star-turned-preacher who leads up a fringe religious group.

You can start streaming the full series over on Amazon Prime Instant Video from tomorrow. In the meantime, check out the official trailer below:

STEPHEN FRY IN CENTRAL AMERICA

Untitled-11

STEPHEN FRY becomes our favourite tour guide once again when his brand new four-part television series Stephen Fry In Central America starts tonight, Thursday 27th August, at 9pm on ITV.

It’s been seven years since STEPHEN embarked on an epic journey to each of the USA’s fifty states for the BBC’s Stephen Fry In America series. This time, as the title suggests, he is sampling the delights available just south of the border, most of which he has never seen before.

Hot air balloons, zip wires, piñata-smashing and swimming with manatees are all in store for STEPHEN as he sets out for the trip of a lifetime. Beginning in Mexico, the journey takes him through the entire Central American isthmus to the Panamanian border with South America. As ever, STEPHEN proves a warm, intrepid and insightful tour guide as he travels from place to place in a yellow American school bus, visiting countries such as Mexico, Belize and Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras and Nicaragua.

Starting in Mexico for tonight’s opening episode, STEPHEN visits the pyramids in the ancient city of Teotihuacán, takes part in a soap opera in Mexico City, learns of the magical migration of the monarch butterfly on the Pacific coast and the courage of cliff divers in Acapulco, takes a trip to Chihuahua and learns about the darker side of the country when he witnesses an emotional demonstration sparked by the ongoing drug wars, which most recently saw 43 students disappear.

“Overall it was a terrific experience, it really was amazing,” claims STEPHEN. “It was full of colour and variety and astonishment. I hope if this series does one thing, it might make people think, ‘Let’s go to Guatemala for our holidays,’ Or ‘Let’s go to Costa Rica for our holidays’ – instead of to the obvious places.”

Tune in tonight at 9pm – don’t miss it!
