Pre-Reviews : Hopkins As Lear

http://filmexperience.blogspot.com/2008/06/2009-sneak-king-lear.html Over at Film Experience Blog they’re having a lengthy discussion on the pros and cons of casting for the upcoming Lear, starring Sir Anthony Hopkins (most of the comments scream “Why not Ian McKellen?”), Gwynneth Paltrow, Keira Knightey and Naomi Watts. If I understand it correctly, McKellen’s version is in fact coming to DVD as well.    So short answer, I’ll see them both :).

  1. For the love of God, go to D.C. a year from now and see it played by Stacy Keach. I had the good fortune to be in the original production, and he is stunningly good. Really, you won’t regret it. Order your tickets now – before the show launches an international tour and becomes the stuff that legends are made of.
