Thread to talk about the actor...oh fuck it. You know what to do

>>489 Simon Cornwell! My auto correct changed the name.

>>489 Gossip Cop gave their denial a "1" rather than a "0." So does he blame her for losing Bond, but just a little bit? Wasn't in talks for Bond so blames her for losing other work? Or someone GC contacted forgot about the NDA for a minute?

>>489, >>491 Oh, and could they have used a less flattering photo of Tom? All neck and no chin!

Yay for career news! TH is speaking in June 2017 at the Cannes Festival of Creativity.

>>484,486 Ruh roh. Has anyone informed the veranda? The rose tinted glasses had to fog up at some point. Of course Fuckery '16 was going to affect his career. The Pollyannas were mad to think that it wouldn't. We sensible lot never suggested that he would never work in Hollywood again. All we said was there would be repercussions - maybe small, maybe large but something.

>>493 Also note the descriptors: Oscar winning actress, multi-Grammy award-winning, Academy award-winning, actress and entrepreneur. TH gets 'heart-throb actor.'

Are we not mentioning the Oldengay Obeglay because of the circumstances which followed?

>>494>>495 I am in favor of any new conversation that is not about personal life rumors : ) I'm having an idea. Tom seems to idealize his coworker from High Rise and the Hollow Crown Series, Jeremy Irons. Irons worked with a series of phenomenal international directors in smaller art house films. With Louis Malle in the deliciously twisted Damage film based on the Hart novel, and in the Schlondorff adaptation of the Proust novel Remembrance of Things Past, the french period piece Swann in Love, where a wealthy intellectual falls in love with his courtesan lover to the detriment of his social standing in 1890s Paris. Does anyone else remember Irons as a diplomat in M. Butterfly, who accidentally falls in love with a Japanese performer who turns out to be a man? Anyway,I think Tom would be awesome working in a small french film with a costar like Isabelle Huppert in a film like Elle, or just working in any cohesive and innovative sexual thriller wih GB director, Adrian Lyne? I think TH has to find a well written script and a proven consistent director, and he has a much better chance of that with smaller projects, with a French or Danish director? Cannes networking could be great for this. Alternatively, he could try for a supporting role in a Wes Anderson film? Would love to see him in a comedy.

>>496 This would be great; it's a respectable career trajectory. You should probably be directing his career. Problem is this doesn't seem to be what he wants or what he can get. He's not busy emulating JI and working with IH. He's busy making monkey movies, voicing an animated caveman and fauxmancing with popstars.

>>493, >>494 This could be really productive networking for him - there's an Entertainment sub-conference:

And while it's not performing, I think he'll find it intellectually stimulating. (Plus, if he's given a talk rather than being interviewed, he'll get to work on his public speaking....) Agree that it probably is a paid gig, though likely at an honorarium level.

>>496, >>497 He should be so lucky as to have a JI kind of career! And I think Tom is well suited to be a leading man in those kinds of films. But I agree that may not be what he wants at this point, especially since his last few indies weren't well reviewed (even if his performances were).
