“With a scandalous uncle, a bohemian childhood on Ibiza and marriage to a comedy star, Jack Davenport has plenty to draw on when acting the part of duplicitous bounder, stuffed shirt or buffoon. Marianne Macdonald meets an old-fashioned player…”

Bookmark the following link for your lunch break! Long article, interesting interview and, you’ll be pleased to hear that, three new pictures.

JUST JACK

I forgot to include the following link in my previous post. There’s more Jack Davenport, better video quality and new clips. Plus Rhys Darby, prettyful Talulah Riley (Girl! Step back from the bleach!) and Richard Curtis again.

“See, that’s the whole point
of being the government:
if you don’t like something,
you make a new law
that makes it illegal.”

It’s only a ten seconds interview, and you have to suffer through the trailer for a guaranteed flop first, but at least it’s an interview, and it’s more fun to look at Jack Davenport than doing the laundry.

The report from the premiere of “The Boat That Rocked” in London also includes Nick Frost, Gemma Arterton, Tom Sturridge, Richard Curtis and others. And snippets from the movie, showing Norrington Mr. Twatt busy at work fighting the pestilence of piracy, poisoning British territorial waters and airwaves with

‘THIS ROCK’N’ROLL PORNOGRAPHY’

Jack says it’s nice doing “Comedy Bad Guy” (TM). Nick Frost complains about non-dancing GoGo girls. It’s raining. In other words: business as usual in London.

Don’t forget: “The Boat That Rocks” officially opens on 1 April – no kiddin’. Go, watch, enjoy yourself and be grateful Hugh Grant was busy elsewhere and let us know how you liked it. Mails containing the word “puerile” more than once or breaking Sparky’s Law (“A movie may not be condemned solely because it will be seen by more than 15 people and the director looks good in a suit.”) will be mocked.

Extra bonus special weekend-goody (with special thanks to Mary):

Good old Getty Images, what would we do without you? Here are the two pictures on which the watermarks do not make Jack look as if he had a really nasty skin condition. Yes, I’m glaring looking at you, AFP.

They both look smashing, and I absolutely love Michelle’s earrings.
You just got to love a couple where the colour of the husband’s tie matches the one of his wife’s tights!

That’s not good.
It’s not great, either.
It’s actually more like friggin’ fantastic!

The London Paper is running a promotion on Monday to win tickets to the world premiere of the Boat That Rocked that night (Monday 23rd March)!

The first 150 people to turn up at the foyer of the Empire cinema Leicester Square at 4pm on Monday 23 March with their copy of THE LONDON PAPER  will receive a ticket to the premiere!!

Wait, wait – there’s a catch (there always  is – competitions are like marriages):

YOU HAVE TO TURN UP IN 1960’s FANCY DRESS!

Now that’s typical – if there’s one thing I have plenty of, then it’s 1960’s style dresses. Alas, I’m not in London, so you’ve got one person less standing in your way. Or take pictures of you while you’re not looking and then posting them on the internet.

Just in case you’re in doubt what 1960’s clothes looked like:

If you want to go for “cool” rather than “colourful to the point of ouch”, I’d suggest the following look, though:

Damian O'Hare - not in the movie, but looking mighty fine in 1960's garb.

There’s also an official MySpace page for “The Boat That Rocked” – quizzes, trailers, behind-the-scenes videos, playlist, news, competitions and lots of other things.

TAKE ME TO THE SOFT, WHITE UNDERBELLY OF THE INTERNET MYSPACE!
