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!
♦ Ladies and gentlemen - the answer to Rupert Everett's Hello Darling, Are You Working? is : YES! Read about Rufus's next role here and here, with a word on new casting here. Casting is ongoing, so there will be more articles, I assume.
As well, and mea culpa for getting this news up so late, the Dr. Syn audio series is being rebroadcast on the BBC. There are two days left to listen to episode 1, three days for episode 2, etc. and then you will be set up to listen to episodes 6 (10 March) to 19.
An older article I put up last time but forgot to mention in the news: World Stars Support Belarusians In Their Fight For Freedom (a couple of months later it seems hard to be optimistic...).
More soon, I hope!
♦ Greetings! A few new items...
Rufus attended the Golden Globes, it seems...not quite enough photo documentation for my taste, but there are a few photos you can see here and here is a mention from an article in The Telegraph the next day:
"Savile Row-based tailors Spencer Hart dressed some of the biggest stars of the night in bespoke suits, including Benedict Cumberbatch, Dan Stevens, Alfonso Cuaron, Tom Felton, Rufus Sewell and Jason Statham."Looking good! As always!
So, in the whatever happened to that movie category, there is news about Where the Devil Hides. From Bloody Disgusting (a site, not a judgement, hahaha), 5 February 2014:
First it was "The Occult". Then it was "The Devil’s Rapture". Now the film starring Rufus Sewell, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Colm Meaney and “Dexter’s” Jennifer Carpenter is being released as "Where The Devil Hides".This was followed a couple of days later by an article stating that the sales rights to the film have been picked up. So... we may be peeking at where-the-devil-hides through our fingers at some point.
That is all for now. Stay tuned!
♦ Happy New Year Rufians! It's been an appallingly long time since I managed an update - apologies! (I'm doing a two-person job alone - very 21st century, but mind-numbing...)
Last year's news has gone to the News Archive.
There are items scattered all over the virtual desk and I hope I don't miss anything.
Catching up with articles... a few stragglers from the promotion of All Things to All Men: here, here and here. There was also an audio interview with Graham Norton here. (You can find all these gathered together on the All Things to All Men page.)
Mixed bag of goodies:
Thanks to one Rachel you can hear Rufus's siren call for the iPad Air UK here.
The theatre critic Matt Wolf put Old Times on two "best of" lists. Here are the excerpts...
From London Year-End Roundup: Five Best Productions of 2013,Broadway.com, 25 December 2013:
Old Times, Harold Pinter Theatre
And from Theatre: Top 10 of 2013,TheArtsDesk.com, 29 December 2013:
Old Times, Harold Pinter Theatre
And just to complete the "nice adjectives about Rufus" section, here's an excerpt from Book Review: ‘Making Masterpiece’ by Sandra McElwaine, 23 December 2013:
Despite all the Sturm und Drang, in the back of my mind I always knew Sunday would come and my hour, or so, of civilized storytelling would be there, waiting for me like a close and constant friend (On “Masterpiece,” among my favorites are: “The Jewel in the Crown,” “Upstairs Downstairs” and “The Pallisers.” On “Mystery,” it’s “Inspector Morse,” “Hercule Poirot,” “Foyle's War” and “Zen,” a new addition, set in Venice, starring the deliciously seductive Rufus Sewell.)We have a photo finish. First, a blast from the past: Rufus and Ami on the red carpet at the November 2012 Britannia Awards in Los Angeles. Then Rufus caught strolling in Los Angeles, November 2013 and finally, Rufus in looking glam at the launch of the F-Type Jaguar Coupe, Los Angeles Motor Show, November 2013.
That's it for the moment. I hope to be back soon... (afraid to be optimistic).
