First of all, I’d like to wish all of our visitors and contributors all the best in the new year! Thanks a lot for visiting the site. Now onto Eddie related news, I have added two new official show pictures from “Richard II” and replaced the ones in the gallery with high quality ones. Check them out!

More information on the movie adaptation of “Les Misérables”, in which Eddie will star in, has surfaced:

The actors Tom Hooper hired for his planned adaptation of the Broadway smash Les Miserables are being told they’ll have to sing their songs live on camera.

A source close to the production has told the Sun UK that, in order to attain the most authentic feel possible, the Oscar-winning King’s Speech director is requiring his cast to record their vocal live on camera during their scenes. Usually, cast members pre-record their vocal tracks in a studio, then lip-synch to the mixed and mastered songs while filming their scenes.


Show pictures of Eddie in “Richard II” have been added to the gallery as well as the scans of an interview for Metro (a very nice read, totally recommended!) thanks to the lovely Lorna again. Enjoy!

The first pictures of the “Richard II” rehearsals have surfaced!

Remember ‘Richard II’ opens on December 6th at the Donmar Warehouse in London. Here‘s a very interesting interview of Eddie talking about this particular project.

‘Kenneth Branagh, who plays Laurence Olivier, says in Marilyn at one point: “Welcome to the circus,” and it does feel like that at times. It’s easy to get caught up in the bulls***. But there’s that amazing line in Richard II that I get to say every night: “Nor I nor any man that but man is/ With nothing shall be pleased, till he be eased/With being nothing.” And it gives me back perspective.’

Eddie posed today next to the portrait of Richard II on display at Westminster Abbey. I have added the pictures to the gallery, enjoy!

Richard II by Michael Grandage opens on December 1, 2011 at The Donmar Warehouse.

A new still of Eddie as Colin Clark in “My Week with Marilyn” has surfaced. The film is set to premiere at the New York Film Festival this weekend and will hit theatres on November 5th. Take a look!

In other news, according to broadway.com the full cast has been announced for the Donmar Warehouse’s production of Shakespeare’s Richard II in which Eddie stars.

In Shakespeare’s epic tale of destruction, ruin and decay, King Richard banishes his noblemen and seizes their land to fuel his own wars. As anger mounts, a battle for the soul of England begins and one man’s divine right to rule is called into question.
