The Lrm Interview with A United Kingdom’s Rosamund Pike

13 February 2017 7:30 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Hard-working British actress, Rosamund Pike, has remained quite visible in a number of films since her breakout role as “Bond girl” Miranda Frost in Die Another Day. Despite the vast number of films she’s appeared in, Pike only started to really get recognition on these shores when she starred in David Fincher’s Gone Girl, for which Pike received an Oscar nomination.

In between, she could be seen in a wide variety of films that include Pride and Prejudice, Doom, Edgar Wright’s The World’s End, and Tom Cruise’s Jack Reacher. After a maternity break, Pike is reunited with another star from that latter film, David Oyelowo, for A United Kingdom from director Amma Assante (Belle).

In the film, Pike plays Ruth Williams, a British working class woman in the ‘40s, who encounters Oyelowo’s Seretse Khama, who happens to be the heir to the king’s thrown of Bechuenaland, »

Bad News: It Turns Out the Real Mr. Darcy Wouldn’t Have Been as Hot as Colin Firth

10 February 2017 7:10 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Much to the dismay of Pride and Prejudice fans everywhere, the real Mr. Darcy would have been no Colin Firth.

For years, film and TV adaptations of the iconic Jane Austen novel have cast as handsome, brooding men in the iconic role of Mr. Darcy. But the authors of a new study into the 19th-century British character suggests he may not have been the dark, tousled haired, strapping hunk we’ve all imagined.

In the new study billed as the first historically accurate portrait of the fictional character, scholars found that Fitzwilliam Darcy would have probably had “sloping shoulders, powdered white hair, »

Steve's Favorite New Jazz Albums of 2016

9 February 2017 3:20 PM, PST | www.culturecatch.com | See recent CultureCatch news »

Okay, it's time for me to stop trying to listen to more 2016 albums and just wrap up this list. In the past I would split my jazz list into a new releases part dedicated to current recordings and a historical part combining first releases of archival material with reissues. This year I'm skipping reissues, partly because some projects were so gargantuan that little guys like me weren't serviced with them, partly because the vinyl renaissance means everything is being reissued at once, and partly because so much stuff is just rehashing the same material in new packaging, with or without a gimmick or a little additional material added. So first releases of archival material are lumped in here. Maybe that's not entirely fair to the current guys, but on the other hand I don't include many archival items on my list.

Portrait of 'real' Mr Darcy unlikely to set 21st century hearts aflutter

9 February 2017 2:49 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Experts believe Jane Austen’s ideal Darcy would bear little comparison to the one played by Colin Firth in BBC’s 1995 series

A dispiriting portrait of the “real” Mr Darcy, showing Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice hero as a pale, slope-shouldered, weedy character, thin of mouth and chin with his hair powdered white, has been created by a panel of experts through studying contemporary fashions and social history.

Their conclusions have been embodied in a portrait by the illustrator Nick Hardcastle, unlikely to set many 21st century hearts aflutter.

How to Identify the Four 'Peak Tom Hardy' Types

17 January 2017 9:46 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

He's created a series of performances that have taken advantage of his intensity, his brutish physique and his way around a multi-syllable sentence – and now, Tom Hardy has somehow created a role for himself that feels more Tom Hardy than almost anything else he's done. In Taboo, the new FX series the actor co-created with father Chips Hardy and Peaky Blinders showrunner Steven Knight, he plays gruff protagonist James Delaney, an early 19th-century explorer who returns home to London to find out he's inherited land sought after by the East India Company. »

The week in TV: To Walk Invisible; The Witness for the Prosecution; Delicious; Maigret’s Dead Man; Mrs Brown’s Boys – review

1 January 2017 1:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Sally Wainwright’s Brontë sisters drama was a triumph, and a dark Agatha Christie classic was brilliantly revived, but Dawn French was badly miscast as an Italian chef

Mark Twain had Jane Austen and all her mimsy fripperies nailed about right when he said: “Every time I read Pride and Prejudice I want to dig her up and beat her over the skull with her own shin-bone.” The Brontës are, on the other hand, a phenomenal tale, often told, but never better than in this week’s offering from Sally Wainwright.
