Stumbled across a description of a BBC version of “Gormenghast” today. Seems they cast Jonathan Rhys-Meyers as Steerpike! Now, I would wager that anyone familiar with the Titus Groan/Gormenghast books would agree this is inspired casting. It makes me want to rent the DVD.
Have you guys ever had similar experience? Wanting to see something on the strength of the choice of actor? (Casting can so make or break a film).
