Решила все в одну тему собрать, потому как а) ничего особо примечательного б) нет времени пока разбираться в) если что-то значительное таки найдется, уйдет в новый топик))
Вот, к примеру, на IMDb значится проект с участием Тоби: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1935947/ Говорят, фильм еще с 2009 года числится в проектах, судьба его как-то пока туманна. Хотя, конечно, появление такого фильма было бы dream come true в чистом виде... Но подождем...
The VIPs: Sam Mendes, Kevin Spacey, Haydn Gwynne, Gemma Jones, Sir Ian McKellen, Toby Stephens, Alan Rickman, Edward Norton,
The Gossip: (1) But soft, what light through yonder window breaks? Why, it¢s only Sam Mendes and Kevin Spacey! They finally reunited last night for the highly anticipated production of Richard III, having previously worked on the Oscar-winning 1999 film American Beauty.
(2) Mendes is also directing the new Bond film, tentatively titled Bond 23. His actors were rumored to attend the production, but seeing as none of them have been announced officially, we don¢t know who they were! Fingers crossed for Spacey as a Bond villain.
(3) Spacey was joined by a company of both British and American actors, including Annabel Scholey, Haydn Gwynne, Gemma Jone and Chuk Iwuji. We must say, the English accents were remarkably strong all round.
(4) This new interpretation of Shakespeare¢s historical English play runs from 18 June to 11 September, and will hit stateside January 2012 – hardly a winter of discontent, if you ask us.
WHO will be on the A list for our literary editor Illtyd Harrington’s 80th birthday in Brighton this weekend?
Old acquaintances include 007 actor Daniel Craig, a friend of Illtyd’s from his days as a council member on the National Youth Theatre, and the actor Toby Stephens.
Perhaps Prince Phillip will drop by with a fine bottle of single malt?
They have been pen pals since the 1970s and regularly exchange correspondence.
Of course, Illtyd, a former deputy leader of the GLC, has his old comrades in the Labour Party to fall back on. Former business secretary Peter Mandelson, the communications chief Alastair Campbell and his partner Fiona Millar.
"Obsession requires a commendable mental agility", according to Nick Hornby and this edition of Words and Music wrestles with ideas that inexorably take hold of the brain. Readers are Olivia Colman and Toby Stephens.
There is nothing more absorbing than being in the throes of love, and the more unrequited it is, the more obsessive the lover becomes - from the idée fixe of Berlioz, in his almost gothic passion for Harriet Smithson, to the hormone-fuelled obsession with the teen idol, as suffered by the young Allison Pearson.
But this passion can disintegrate into something more sinister, and so enter the stalker, courtesy of Ian McEwan and The Police, and the narcissist, taken to fantastical extreme in The Portrait of Dorian Gray.
And there are those whose minds work in a way they struggle to control - Dr Johnson may have had a form of obsessive compulsive disorder, there is the hoarder, the hypochondriac, and the keeper and interpreter of minutiae, like Nick Hornby's football obsessive.
And finally the all-absorbing, all-encompassing epic grand passion, the inability to concentrate on anything else - Ahab's quest for the white whale, and the Arthurian knight's mission to find the Holy Grail.
Music from jazz, pop, rock and classical, including Cole Porter's rather unsettling (in this context) "Night and Day", the romanticism of Schubert, Berlioz and Wagner, and the joyous piling up of insistent ostinati by Herbie Hancock.
“Obsession requires a commendable mental agility”, according to Nick Hornby and this edition of Words and Music wrestles with ideas and habits that inexorably take hold of the brain.
There is nothing more absorbing than being in the throes of love, and the more unrequited it is, the more obsessive the lover becomes.
The programme starts with the rather chilling, in this context, insistent drum beat and stalkerish sentiments of Cole Porter¢s “Night and Day” before poems by Yeats and Ronsard on the sheer helplessness of passion. Berlioz was a sucker for unrequited love throughout his life, a great exponent of the idée fixe in music, and here he is in the early heady days of his highly gothic fixation with Harriet Smithson (he went off her after he finally won her…), both in his own words, and in part of his Symphonie Fantastique, where he dreams he has killed his love and is about to die himself.
Shakespeare and Sondheim admit to being incapable of doing anything except constantly wonder where their love is and what they are doing, but with Ian McEwan¢s “Enduring Love” things tip over into something far more dangerous – the stalker. Police¢s classic song “Every Breath You Take” was designed not as a love song, but as a sinister piece about surveillance and control.
Teenagers are the world champions at obsessive love, and Rosamond Lehmann¢s “Dusty Answer” and Allison Pearson¢s “I think I love you” show that basic sentiments haven¢t changed over the decades. Romantically dying of love is also popular in the world of lieder, with Schubert¢s “The Brook¢s Lullaby” taking it to the inevitable conclusion.
The quietly insistent music of Philip Glass leads away from romantic love to other passions that are just as all-consuming. Nick Hornby writes for the football obsessive, Shel Silverstein for the hoarder, Jerome K. Jerome for the hypochondriac, doing the 19th century equivalent of googling his symptoms. And more seriously, Boswell appears to be describing something very like obsessive compulsive disorder in the great Dr Johnson.
For self-obsession, who else but Dorian Gray, read against part of Schumann¢s “Forest Scenes”, music he demands that his portrait painter should lend him.
Richard Strauss¢s tone poem “Don Quixote” describes the beginning of a magnificent mad chivalric obsession, disintegrating into music from Dutilleux as an unsettling background to Captain Ahab¢s uncontrollable sheer force of will in his hunt for the white whale.
And finally – the ultimate obsession – the quest for the Holy Grail, which brings us to Masefield¢s Grail knight, Sir Bors, nearly all passion spent, and the glorious appearance of the Grail at the close of Parsifal.

A fairyland quarrel causes a night of midsummer madness for two pairs of Athenian lovers and a group of amateur actors in Shakespeare's magical play featuring an all-star cast including Lesley Sharp, Toby Stephens, Freddie Fox, Robert Pugh and Roger Allam.
The play revolves around the adventures of four young lovers – Hermia, Lysander, Helena and Demetrius – a group of amateur actors, and their interactions with the fairies who inhabit a moonlit forest.
Their romantic intrigues are confused and complicated further still by entering the forest, where Oberon King of the fairies (Toby Stephens) and his queen, Titania (Lesley Sharp), preside.
With Freddie Fox as Puck, Robert Pugh as Peter Quince, Roger Allam as Bottom and Nicholas Farrell as Theseus, the production was recorded this summer on location in 22 acres of Sussex woodland, and features music by Stephanie Nunn.
One of ITV1's best loved and most consistently performing dramas, Lewis, has been recommissioned by the channel.
Attracting a regular audience of more than 7 million viewers, Lewis regularly features in the top three most watched dramas in the UK on both ITV and the BBC.
Kevin Whately, who has been playing Lewis for nearly 25 years, and Laurence Fox will both reprise their roles as Inspector Robbie Lewis and his partner DS James Hathaway investigating very modern murders amidst the exquisite architecture of the ancient University of Oxford.
An ITV Studios production, Lewis is produced by Chris Burt who has been the series producer since the launch of Lewis in 2006. The executive producers are Mammoth Screen's Michele Buck and Damien Timmer, who continue to work on the series for ITV Studios.
Three of the new films are currently titled – Generation of Vipers, The Age of Foolishness and Death of the Author.
Generation of Vipers is written by Patrick Harbinson whilst the other episodes in this series will be written by Rachel Bennette, Simon Block and Russell Lewis, who created Lewis as a spin-off from Inspector Morse in which Kevin Whately starred with John Thaw.
The Director of the first episode will be David O'Neill (Law & Order: UK), and Toby Stephens (Jane Eyre, Die Another Day) will be guest starring.
The new series will once again feature beautiful locations in and around the city of Oxford, including the Cherwell and Isis rivers and the magnificent university colleges.
“Lewis and Hathaway have become a formidable partnership not only in terms of cracking murders cases, but also in terms of their popularity with ITV1 viewers, “ said Controller of Drama Commissioning Sally Haynes. “ We're thrilled they are returning to work on some great new stories.”
Executive Producer Michele Buck said: “Lewis and Hathaway's partnership has grown in popularity with every series as viewers enjoy the fine writing, acting and excellent production values Lewis has to offer.”
Added Executive Producer Damien Timmer: “We're delighted to be producing a set of new films with Chris Burt and have two strong additions to the writing team this year, with Rachel Bennette (Bel Ami starring Robert Pattinson) and Simon Block (the award winning The Shooting of Thomas Hurndall) both joining us.”
The creator of Morse, Colin Dexter, continues his association with Lewis and will act as a Consultant on all aspects of the production.
Гы..придётся ещё одну серию энтого Льюиса посмотреть - буквально на днях смотрела (получается из предпоследнего сезона) из-за Руперта Грейвса в гостевой же роли очень симпатичного, но алкоголика. Кстати, крепко сварганенный такой сериал.
И еще, Тоби сыграет в британском "Законе и Порядке" (в какой-то одной серии, как я понимаю). Подробнее здесь. Внимание на предпоследнем абзаце: "Quality guest stars join the cast for series six including Tamzin Outhwaite, Toby Stephens, Eva Pope, Luke Roberts and Tim McInnerny".
И еще, Тоби сыграет в британском "Законе и Порядке" (в какой-то одной серии, как я понимаю)
О, это качественный сериал - я большая поклонница его американской версии. Из английского варианта видела только одну серию - из-за Грейвза естессно, и тоже в гостевой роли - впечатлил очень, было что играть и сыграл великолепно. Надеюсь, и Тоби блеснёт.
Дайте женщинам насмотреться, наслушаться и помечтать.
А у меня еще новость))) я давно прочитала об этом, но на уровне слухов, поэтому не стала заранее распространятся.... а теперь инф-я появилась на IMDb, так что ура-ура, нас ждет еще 6 серий Vexed, и с другой партнершей: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0827170/
