Ralph Fiennes Returning to New York Stage as Robert Moses in ‘Straight Line Crazy’

Click here to read the full article. New York’s theater scene has its next impossible to come by ticket. Ralph Fiennes, Tony winner, Oscar nominee, recovering Voldemort and Monsieur Gustave for the ages, will tread the boards again as Robert Moses in David Hare’s new play “Straight Line Crazy.” The show has already played in the West End, where it scored rave reviews. Variety wrote that in the title role as the super controversial city planner, “Fiennes is all boldly convincing, controlled threat, his monomania teetering on the edge of malevolence.” It will now have a nine-week run at The Shed’s Griffin...

Ralph Fiennes Almost Became James Bond Before Bossing Daniel Craig Around

In 2004, if you were a handsome young actor from the British Isles (or thereabouts) with any degree of notoriety, you were in the running to succeed Pierce Brosnan as James Bond. Producer Barbara Broccoli cast the widest of nets, bringing in the likes of Henry Cavill, Ewan McGregor, Rupert Friend, and the man who was almost Wolverine, Dougray Scott, to audition. They even considered Aussies like Sam Worthington, Julian McMahon, and Alex O'Loughlin. And if Ralph Fiennes is to be believed (and what kind of maniac wouldn't believe Ralph Fiennes), you can scratch the "young" part of the requirement as well.

The Grand Budapest Hotel Hit Close To Home For Ralph Fiennes

Wes Anderson's 2014 period dramedy "The Grand Budapest Hotel" is a fetching cinematic confection with a profound sense of sadness at its core. The movie pays homage to the work of artists like English filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock and Austrian writer Stefan Zweig, both of whom used populist genres to explore the changing social and political landscape in Europe during the 20th century. In the same way, Anderson's film examines the rise of Euro-fascism (both in the years leading up to and just after World War II) through the lens of a whimsical, irreverent, and even raunchy caper plot.

Ralph Fiennes really didn’t like putting on the Voldemort make up

The wizarding world of Harry Potter is full of recognisable faces. However, few are as distinctive as the nose-less villain Voldemort – played by Ralph Fiennes. Now, actors undergo transformations every day in their career, but let’s be honest, changing into the ‘Dark Lord’ doesn’t seem like the easiest process, and Fiennes has come out to confirm that he hated the lengthy makeup routine he endured every time he had to embody the Harry Potter character.

Voldemort's Makeup Was A Miserable Experience For Ralph Fiennes

The movie images that haunt my mind are rarely from places you would expect. For instance, there is a scene in Park Chan-wook's incredible film "The Handmaiden" where Kim Tae-ri's character shares a powerful intimate moment with Kim Min-hee's character by filing her tooth. The intention is clear. One character literally has the other's fingers in her mouth. Their urges coming to the forefront without anything explicitly sexual happening. However, I was horrified by this, as the thought of someone filing my tooth makes me break out into a cold sweat. Park Chan-wook has created plenty of cinematic moments where he wants to unnerve me, but this was not one of them. Yet unnerved I am.
