Watch Jack Davenport’s latest project to be released, Death Knight Love Story — a World of Warcraft fan film in which he voices one of the characters — HERE.

This is only the first part of the movie. Since it took several years for it to be released, there’s no telling when the next part will come out.

Just released today, “Haven’t We Met Before?” is a short film directed by Anjelica Huston for Donna Karan to advertise their new line of hosiery. Most important, it stars Jack Davenport.

Here he was at today’s Donna Karan film premiere event in New York City.

And here is a screen capture from the short.

Yes, this is one big fancy advertisement, but it’s artistic and, well, it features Jack Davenport. Need we say more? You can view the short here: http://youtu.be/zpEEFWDW4G0

This just in: Christian Borle will be responsible for the music in “Smash”.

AFTERELTON asks a just question:

HOW GAY IS NBC’S “SMASH”?

And while it’s not often that AfterElton praises the inclusion of a homophobic character, here, Dererk, to be played by Flash Forward’s Jack Davenport, in this case, we’re happy to see it.

Having Derek be a straight homophobic choreographer not only gives Tom a foil with which to spar, thus giving him more potential storylines, it also deals with the fact that homophobia is still very much a part of American society. And having it be a supposedly sophisticated New Yorker, rather than a stereotypical rural or conservative character behave homophobically, gives it a fresh spin.

Fully agree with Michael Jensen there. It all depends on how this will be written, of course.
And anybody who knows fandom will prepare for a bazillion of “Derek coming out of the closet” fics…

Next: a new picture of “The Key Man” has surfaced!

In further news, “Mother’s Milk” is rumoured to be out in spring (of 2011, until further notice…)

Hamilton and Hodell have added a show reel to Jack’s page.

Hamilton Hodell, the agency representing Jack Davenport, has updated its website. If you’d like to see Jack’s overhauled official page, you can do so here:

JACK DAVENPORT @ HAMILTON HODELL

I also kindly ask you to read their new “Fans” page, which will answer all your questions regarding autographs, interviews, charity appeals etc.

FANS @ HAMILTON HODELL

In other news: some of you have mailed in the information that Jack Davenport would be in this play. I have no information concerning this event; it’s very much possible that it’s a different Jack Davenport (the Davenportses, they are everywhere!). This should not keep anybody from going and watching the play, though.

Also, I’m still down at the vets for the time being (having my claws clipped and everything), so I have to ask you for some patience when it comes to updates of the website. Frank is working really hard behind the scenes, just give us some time. Thanks!

Media fans are often very dedicated to their hobby, and many of them are amazingly creative. That’s a great thing, because it means we all get more mileage out of a movie or a TV show. And if you’ve ever suffered through “The Phantom Menace”, you’ve learned to appreciate the quality of fan movies.

Philippe Vergauwen is the name of one such fan, and he’s worked 1.5 years on the Lego-version of “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl” (the first half of the movie, that is). And while he skipped some key scenes, he did include all our favourite navy guys, so you can now all enjoy the Lego-version of Jack Davenport as James Norrington.

The Admiralty would probably not have approved of Mr. Norrington’s stubbles and moustache; see, that’s where Lt. Gillette could have been helpful, but he looks rather scruffy as well. And for unknown reasons, he’s joined the Royal Marines.

On his way to the Dauntless, Mr. Gillette has a mid-scene uniform change. Also, he grew a beard. Amazing!

Commodore Norrington and Lt. Groves watch the goings-on through the spyglass (which is… pretty huge…), and we note that Mr. Groves seems to be the only one in possession of a razor blade.

This fan movie is great fun, compliments to Philippe and thanks for sharing!

News can be found in the most obscure sources – for example in the “Car Clinic” column over at The Sunday Times.

“(…) I bought it over the phone from a film director in Ealing who had used it as a prop in a film starring Dexter Fletcher, David Soul and Jack Davenport. I drove it for a few months, couldn’t afford its thirst and sold it for 300% profit.

Until this letter I hadn’t given it or the film a second thought. I’ve discovered it was called Three Men in a Restaurant and was about three no-hopers trying to make a film. It has since had its name changed to That Deadwood Feeling and is due to hit cinemas next year, complete with Cadillac. (…)”

Don’t ask me about cars, I don’t even own a driving license. And if I had one, I’d drive a 1948s Citroën deux-chevaux (commonly known as “The Duck”) – a green one, of course – or a VW Beetle. Anyway, of course this made me scratch my head for various reasons:

Looks like a canard, doesn’t it? But wait…

Amazon UK takes preorders for the “That Deadwood Feeling” DVD, to be released on 16 March, 2009!

Houston, we’re having a “quoi?!” moment.

deadwood01

What’s the secret behind “Deadwood”?
Did the Cadillac audition for the job?
And if “Deadwood” should really hit the cinemas – would the cinemas hit back?

So many questions, so little time…

No, this is not the title of a documentary about the current global finance crisis. It’s an animated short Jack Davenport was/is involved with. Kudos to Vandelsira for finding this!

“PSYCHOTICA”

A black comedy set in insane asylum at the end of the 19th century, where the crazy are strong and the sane are witless. Starring the voices of Helen Baxendale, Jack Davenport and Simon Pegg. For release in 2007. 30 mins 35mm. 1:1.85. A co-production with Big Bang, Montreal. Written and directed by Gili Dolev.

WATCH THE TRAILER

The trailer looks absolutely amazing; a shame it seems to be one of those projects which started out well and then went the way of the dodo, or which were only available to a handful of people. Seeing how “Psychotica” was produced in 2006 and supposed to be released in 2007, we can assume the characters of Psychotica are sitting somewhere in a pub, getting plastered with the Hungry Hamsters.

There’s an official website; no content there, though.

Hey, short movie makers, be it of hamsters or inmates or whatever: how about selling your movies as downloads if you can’t show them anywhere? Yes, yes, I know, not artsy enough, but it’s a pity to see so many promising projects just disappear, and as much as I love them, breakable 78rpm’s have gone out of fashion, too.
