First Look: Benedict Cumberbatch In Richard III Adaptation ‘Hollow Crown’

2 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

There’s no cheeky Sherlock-esque grin in sight as Benedict Cumberbatch takes on Shakespeare’s villainous Richard III for a BBC TV adaptation entitled The Hollow Crown: The Wars of the Roses.

In the image, Cumberbatch sports a rather unkempt and angry look, complete with dark clothing and a stunning black horse for him to ride. Though many people now realise that Shakespeare’s vision of Richard III was perhaps a little harsh, that doesn’t stop the play being adapted and revisited. Cumberbatch’s Sherlock co-star Martin Freeman headed to the stage for the Trafalgar Transformed theatre production earlier this year.

For the production of The Hollow Crown: The Wars of the Roses, Cumberbatch will be joined by an all-star cast that includes another Sherlock co-star, Andrew Scott, along with Dame Judi Dench and Downton Abbey’s Hugh Bonneville.

First Look: Benedict Cumberbatch Gets Rugged In 'The Hollow Crown: The War Of Roses'

8 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

"We looked at war films and thought about what it was like to be a soldier. We wanted to appeal to a war film audience, to contemporise it and strip out all the pageantry and pare things down," costume designer Annie Symons told BBC about the network's ongoing Shakespeare series "The Hollow Crown." "I looked at football hooligans, the way they move and wear colours. We thought about war as sport which it definitively was in the age of chivalry." Well, while we certainly wouldn't call him a hooligan, Benedict Cumberbatch certainly looks appropriately rugged in this first look at "The Hollow Crown: The War Of Roses." The second batch of the Bard's works will include an adaptation of "Richard III" with Cumberbatch in the title role. And joining him is a pretty stellar cast including Judi Dench, Keeley Hawes, Sophie Okonedo, and Tom Sturridge. But as cool as this looks, »

Billy Connolly interview: What We Did, Muppets, X-Files

We chat to Billy Connolly about What We Did On Our Holiday, Judi Dench, hot fillings, X-Files, Sean Bean and more...

The incoming British comedy drama, What We Did On Our Holiday, boasts a terrific ensemble cast. But perhaps the standout is Billy Connolly. He takes on the role of Gordy in the film, primarily working with the film's young cast. And on a British Monday morning, we found ourselves opposite an apparently jetlagged Billy Connolly, sipping away at his tea, and in fine form. Here's how our chat went...

Nice to meet you.

Consider yourself met!

I've been told that to knock you off kilter for the rest of the interview that I should ask you something random right at the start. So: have microwave ovens been a good thing for modern cooking?

Nooooo! No! It's been crap! They can't handle pastry. It's its great failing!

Ben Whishaw to star in BBC Two’s London Spy

19 September 2014 12:24 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Skyfall’s Q Ben Whishaw will show off his own secret agent skills in London Spy…

Ben Whishaw is probably best known nowadays as the man who sat in the National Gallery with James Bond and disappointed him with a ‘hardly Christmas’ offering of a gun and a radio.

He has tackled lots of other interesting roles though, including several central parts in Cloud Atlas and a recurring role in BBC drama The Hour. He has also just finished a run with Judi Dench on the West End and has recently replaced Colin Firth as the voice of Paddington Bear.

Now, the BBC want him back, and have offered him a chance to use a few guns and radios of his own in their new five-part BBC Two drama London Spy.

Whishaw will play the eponymous London spy, real-name Danny, described as "a gregarious, hedonistic romantic who gets drawn into »
