In the interest of keeping content flowing onto the blog (it's been two god-forsaken weeks since the last update), I wanted to share with you an amazing clip from a movie I recently watched... Before I get to that, I need to tell you that when I was cast in MOBY DICK, I wasn't told much in regards to the casting, so going into my first big shoot I had no idea who I'd be acting with. I had heard that Ethan Hawke was going to be in the film, as was Charlie Cox (who I knew from STARDUST), but that was it.
My first scene was opposite of a British actor who I recognized, but I wasn't sure what from. And I'm glad that I didn't remember. It turned out that the man I was acting opposite of was Eddie Marsan, two-time winner of Britain's top honors for Best Supporting Actor in HAPPY-GO-LUCKY (2008) and VERA DRAKE (2004).
Check out his ridiculously stacked IMDb page here.
So I wanted to show you a clip from HAPPY-GO-LUCKY which showcases Marsan's heavyweight talents, so you can also revel in awe with me...

Forgive me if this blog entry seems to make no sense, it's just that lately I've constantly been forced to reassess how damn lucky I really am to be doing this for a living, and how much I love it to work with talented people who love to do it too.
I'll have another exciting blog update this week! Stay tuned.
