Espionage Thriller Red Sparrow Taps Ciarán Hinds As Russian Officer

15 February 2017 12:09 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Irish actor Ciarán Hinds, best known for his roles in Game of Thrones and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, is the latest addition to Red Sparrow, the espionage thriller in the works from Francis Lawrence (The Hunger Games).

Hinds will play a high-ranking Russian official known as Zyugonov, who presides over much of the country’s intelligence agency. In light of today’s casting coup, he now joins an ensemble that includes Joel Edgerton, Matthias Schoenaerts, Jeremy Irons, Joely Richardson and Jennifer Lawrence, marking the latter’s first collaboration with Francis Lawrence post-Panem. Indeed, the Oscar-winner has laid claim to a juicy role in Red Sparrow, after securing the part of Russian intelligence officer Dominika Egorova more than a year ago.

Under the cast-iron bureaucracy of Russian intelligence, Dominika is trained as a seductress, one considered indispensable in the mission of surveilling budding CIA officer Nathaniel Nash (Edgerton). It tees up »

R.I.P. John Hurt 1940-2017

27 January 2017 11:29 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Legendary British actor Sir John Hurt has sadly passed away at the age of 77. The screen icon passed away after a battle with pancreatic cancer.

John Hurt dies at 77.

Hurt was a veteran of stage and screen making his debut in the 1960s TV show Z Cars.

A Tribute to John Hurt: A Playful Master Who Made His Inner Hurt Ours

27 January 2017 10:55 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

No actor was more perfectly named than John Hurt. It’s not as if the people he played were always in pain (though more often than not, they were). Yet he was graced with a seductively layered and tricky personality — you sensed that his characters were sly, furtive, and complicated because Hurt, who died Jan. 27 in England, was all those things as well. And the deepest layer was the hint of torment he carried around with him. It was like the speck of sand around which a pearl forms.

Hurt was born in 1940, but he was never some impeccable boring well-mannered “Masterpiece Theatre” thespian. Over and over, he gave performances that were daring and surprising and outrageous. Comb through his credits, and it’s hard to find anything that approaches the safe, bland note of costume-drama respectability. And yet, when you think of John Hurt, the first thing you probably »
