Please read the all-important (so say my lawyers, hahaha) disclaimer before proceeding.
Comments and news are welcome.
Rufians, the newish news starts here... I hope to fill in the history gap (having a lot of the info, only lacking 48 hours in the day and no need to ever sleep) one of these days!
MASSIVE thanks to the Rufus Sewell Message Board, a.k.a. The Rooftop, purveyors of the latest news!
♦ Greetings, after a longer than intended gap! Rufus has been been filming Victoria and has perhaps started on Season 2 of The Man in the High Castle. There hasn't been much news, but there have been a cartload of articles - and here they are:

There are a bunch of nice photos from the premiere of The Man in the High Castle - they will be here soon! (17 April, thanks Rooftop)
♦ Happy New Year Rufians! The Man in the High Castle has come and gone (not really, you can watch it on Amazon Prime). The good news is that it has been renewed for a second season, and, given Rufus's role and developments in the last couple of episodes, it looks like we will get to admire his talents quite a bit more.
Rufus has - happily - not escaped the attention of the Critics Choice Awards folk and he has been nominated as Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series. Fingers crossed!
There have been a ton of articles, including a couple of nice interviews. Read them here: Amazon Prime TV Review: The Man in the High Castle (Episodes 1 and 2) - 'The Man In the High Castle' Is Chilling Alterna-history - 'The Man in the High Castle' Will Make You Sympathise With Nazis, Says Alexa Davalos - TV Review: ‘The Man in the High Castle’ - 'The Man in the High Castle’s' Chilling Alternate Reality - 'The Man In The High Castle': Rufus Sewell Tells HuffPostUK Why Philip Dick's Sci-Fi Novel Is As Relevant, And Painful, As Ever - The Man in the High Castle: Season 1 Review - ‘The Man in the High Castle’ Becomes Amazon’s Most-Streamed Original Series and Interview: Rufus Sewell Talks 'The Man in the High Castle'.
More will be coming!
♦ Despite the silence I am not dead (just overworked and under-brained). So, sign of life: Amazon had a preview weekend for The Man in the High Castle (for certain countries, not including Canada where the series was filmed, cough cough). Read about it here. Also, there have been a series of posters featuring Himself... see them here.
That's it for now... more soon, hopefully.
That's it for now - stay tuned!
♦ Ruf-fans! I'm not dead, just over-worked and running behind the train... thankfully Rufus is still filming The Man in the High Castle in Vancouver, so there is no real new news - but there are more pbotos from the set (taken around the time of the ones we have already seen).
The one piece of real news is that Amazon will screen the first two episodes of The Man in the High Castle at ComicCon in San Diego and Entertainment Weekly will live-stream the event on their website. You can read about this here.
I'll keep you posted!
♦ Hello Rufians! Closer has closed (and very wonderful it was, having had the good fortune to see it) and Rufus is now filming The Man in the High Castle in Vancouver.
All this is gathered on a page, which I assume will grow with time.
More soon I hope!
The other news (article coming soon) is that Amazon has green-lighted The Man in the High Castle so we will have a television series with Rufus! Well, in countries that allow on-demand streaming television without needing endless committee studies in order not to upset the existing monopoly (you know who you are Canada - where, ironically, this series will be filmed).
Till soon, I hope!
For lovely photos of the opening night party visit the Rooftop here!
More soon, I hope!
♦ Happy New Year Rufians! Something nice to start the year - you can watch the pilot of The Man in the High Castle for free on Amazon (you need an account but that is free to get, as I am sure everyone knows). This is the link: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00RSI6NKS/ref=cm_sw_r_fa_dp_xGxUub0FA2WGP. If it doesn't work you may need to experiment a bit.
You can also read a first review of the production.
And the last bit for today: National Geographic has released a behind-the-scenes video for Killing Jesus. You can read an article and see the video (with a glimpse of Rufus at minute 2.22 [thanks Nell]) here.
We have a lot of Rufus to look forward to this year!
