So Americans, check your schedules and set your recording devices. We are *finally* getting Casanova! That's right, tomorrow night is the first half! (I'm going rather mad over David Tennant, for obvious reasons, but Rupert Penry-Jones has a nice role as the Duke of Grimani.)
And in two weeks, after Casanova finishes, we'll be getting To the Ends of the Earth, starring Benedict Cumberbatch. (can anyone please figure out who the hell he was in Cambridge Spies? Because he's in the cast list, and yet I've never managed to see his face. I still only know him as Freddy in Tipping the Velvet.)
We're starting to get some buzz on A Good Year thanks to Toronto. The usual - it doesn't suck and Tom is amusing :) (Globe and Mail loved him, Salon thought he was the highlight of the press conference, and IGN says he's amusing.)
Oh, and Londoners, you can go see Tom talk about vibrators - Rabbit Fever is out in the UK.
As for Jane Eyre, there's a lot of dislike for the adaptation but everyone seems to agree that Toby is hot. I'm going to let the Bronte groups chronicle that one and let people who've actually seen it talk about it.
In other Toby news, AFI Fest in LA has announced its lineup - it will include the US premiere of Dark Corners.
More out of Toronto, this one a nice mention of Simon Woods in Penelope, a fable starring Christina Ricci (and a whole slew of great actors, from James McAvoy to Richard E Grant). No word on where this one will go yet as it showed in Toronto without a distributor, but it's produced by Reese Witherspoon and it's got one hell of a cast.
Sam West has a new project for BBC4, starring in an adaptation of a short scifi story from the 1960s.
