Tom Brooke Joins The Cast Of AMC's Preacher As A Series Regular

20 May 2015 8:10 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Looks like the main cast of AMC's upcoming Preacher pilot just got a little bigger. British talent Tom Brooke has nabbed a series regular role on the show as 'Fiore', one of two Adelphi angels tasked with watching the half-demon, half-angelic creature named 'Genesis'. The show, currently being developed for TV by This Is The End duo Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg, is based on Garth Ennis & Steve Dillion's 90s comic book series of the same name. Brooke joins a cast that so far includes Agent Carter's Dominic Cooper in the lead as 'Jesse Custer', Ruth Negga (Agents Of Shield) as his ex 'Tulip' and Joseph Gilgun (Misfits) as an Irish vampire named 'Cassidy'. A relative unknown, Brooke may seem familiar to Game Of Thrones fans, having portrayed one of Walder Frey's spawn back in Season 3. He has also guest starred on Sherlock, and in British comedy, The Boat That Rocked. »

Preacher pilot: Tom Brooke cast as Fiore

20 May 2015 12:50 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Tom Brooke – seen in Sherlock and Game Of Thrones – has landed an angelic role in AMC’s adaptation of the Preacher comic book…

With the pilot episode of Preacher currently shooting, we’re assuming this is news that AMC has known for a while, but has only just chosen to announce. Regardless, it’s still nice to report that Tom Brooke is joining the show.

Mr Brooke is an English actor, who made a big impression as Bill ‘Wiggie’ Wiggins (Sherlock’s drug-loving sidekick, with an eye for his own deductions) in 2014 Sherlock episode His Last Vow.

That was hardly his first rodeo, though, he also played Lothar Frey in season 3 of Game Of Thrones. He’s also appeared in pretty much every British crime-based show going, including Ripper Street, Lewis, Foyle’s War, Hustle and Thieves Like Us. He also appeared in cinematic comedies Bridget Jones: The Edge Of Reason »

Iona is director Graham’s second film following his award winning Shell in 2012.

A woman returns to the island that is her namesake with her teenage son in Iona - which will close Eiff 2015 Photo: Courtesy of Eiff Scott Graham’s Iona has been announced as the closing film of the 69th edition of Edinburgh Film Festival on Sunday June 28 at the Festival Theatre Edinburgh, where it will receive its world premiere.

Shell director Graham's second feature is described as "part coming-of-age story and part returning-home drama", that tells the story of Iona - returning to the Island where she was born (and after which she was named) with her teenage son Bull to seek refuge from a violent crime in Glasgow. Iona's return exposes Bull to a way of life she rejected when she left the island as a teenager and sends a shockwave through her family.

Far from the Madding Crowd movie review: a woman’s choices

29 April 2015 6:30 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Ridiculously romantic in all the best ways, and more modern, more progressive, and even just plain more grownup that half the movies thrown at us today. I’m “biast” (pro): love the cast; desperate for stories about women

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have read the source material (but not since high school and have no strong memory of it)

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

The novel it’s based on is a century and a half old, and it opens with a mad-sheepdog accident, of all the crazy rural old-fashioned things, but this new cinematic adaptation of Thomas Hardy’s Far from the Madding Crowd is more modern, more progressive, and even just plain more grownup that half the movies thrown at us in our stodgy convention-bound movie landscape. And it’s not always modern in positive ways! The challenges faced by »

Kingsman: The Secret Service movie review: forgets its manners

30 January 2015 7:45 AM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

I cannot recall a film that left me with such a sour taste in my mouth by its end. Does the movie deliberately defy itself with obnoxious intent? I’m “biast” (pro): love Colin Firth

I’m “biast” (con): the trailer did not inspire hope

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

This is not an gentlemanly movie.

Now, most movies are not very gentlemanly, and this isn’t necessarily a problem — except, perhaps, to those of us who lament the passing of true gentlemanliness as a thing a dude might aspire to. But it’s a honking huge problem forKingsman: The Secret Service. Because this movie makes such a big deal about how gentlemanliness is a thing a dude must exude, certainly if he wants to become a member of the titular elite society of gentleman spies and »

Trash movie review: you know, for kids?

29 January 2015 8:55 AM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

This isn’t a children’s movie… and yet it kind of is, too, with its odd mishmash of social realism, action thrills, misplaced comedy, and simplistic drama. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

The police in Rio de Janeiro “treat poor people like trash.” So says young teen Raphael (Rickson Tevez), in case you hadn’t already grasped the double entendre of the title. When Raphael discovers a really nice, surely accidentally discarded wallet while working as a trash picker in a massive Rio landfill, he shares the cash with his pal Gardo (Eduardo Luis), and then the two are off on a sort of treasure hunt to unravel the meaning of the other mysterious items in the wallet, including a train-station locker key, photos of a little girl, »
