"Actually, though, what marks Whishaw out as an actor more than any lost-boy glamour is his voice. His fastidious diction is unmistakable: he picks up words as if with sugar tongs – as if each syllable needed personal attention."
Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos is making his English-language helming debut with “Lobster.” He previously lined up quite the talented cast: Jason Clarke, Lea Seydoux, Ben Whishaw and Olivia Colman. Now Colin Farrell and Rachel Weisz have signed on to play the leads. Count us excited for this one.
The film is slated to start shooting March 24th in Ireland
"When I had finished working on this play (Richard II) — and maybe all Shakespeare is like this — I had the sensation that the play seemed to be about everything in life. It is at once very specific and completely universal."
"I love the stage too much. Now I actually see far more films than I do theatre, but its the place where I think you really learn the most. So many of these great actors constantly dip back into it, even if they primarily concentrate on film. Its a real testing ground for an actor, I hope I never leave it behind."
