A couple days ago, rumors had spread around the internet saying Jonathan Rhys Meyers is cast as Valentine, well a day later, Cassie confirmed it! I don't know about you, but he's not at all what I pictured at Valentine in the books, but I'm sure they'll work magic on him for the movie! Plus...it's Jonathan Rhys Meyers. Hotness walking. *fans self*
Here's the post Cassie posted on Tumblr.
I’ve liked JRM since he was in Velvet Goldmine and I have to admit that image was what sprang immediately to mind when the producer called me and said “…Jonathan Rhys Meyers?”I was like, “Velvet Goldmine!”And Robert, who is German and very practical, was like, “I hope you have seen things he is in since then or I will assume you do not go to the theater.”So yes I should probably also mention that JRM plays Henry the 8th on The Tudors, and does a very good job of being charismatic, power-hungry, and cold.
Did Henry the Eighth own unbuttoned white shirts? And unlaced pants? Either way I suppose we now see why Valentine got so many people to follow his crazy schemes. I suspect by the end of the movie everyone will be going “Just do what that good-looking guy tells you to do, you crazy kids!”I should probably also mention that he was great in Match Point and Bend it Like Beckham and lots of my other favorite movies. So, in sum: Ireland, we have cleaned you out of your hot men. Sorry about that. You can have them back in three months when they’re done filming. In the meantime, Sarah Rees Brennan has offered to go onset and paint shamrocks on all the trailers.
What do you guys think? :D
