Phew, Wulff, sounds like you are in love fer sure. Good luck with your new sweetie.

Did you happen to see two girls with dark hair, one Asian-looking and one Mid-eastern looking... the Asian one in a green jacket and long grey/white-flowered skirt, with a blue shirt underneath and.... both girls had long hair?? Because maybe you saw me at the Wondercon, although I wouldn't know!


Yikes. That describes a lot of women at WonderCon! Here's what I looked like yesterday. I'm an agin' Caucasian with long dark brown hair, still curvy figure, and wearing jeans and my black White Tree of Gondor tee-shirt. I was with two friends, who are more striking than I--a man with very long, curly salt and pepper hair and long beard, and a woman with long gingery hair and unusually short arms (birth defect).

We loved Frank Miller. Your description of his talk is great. It was mostly about his work on Batman. Very little discussion was given to Sin City, graphic novel or film. This was Wondercan, after all, where folks are generally more thrilled with Batman, Superman, and Xmen than films or novels--unless they concern superheroes, of course. Miller is planning a graphic novel starring Batman, where the Dark Knight goes up against Osama Ben Laden. I'd like to see that one.

I was annoyed at the woman who only mentioned Gerard Butler in regard to '300.' But I'm glad that she brought up the movie, anyway. The news item was Miller saying that '300' won't be released until 2007, due to the amount of special effects that have to be added. So there's that tidbit for you.

Looks like we have to wait a looooooong time to see Dave as Delios, but I'm betting '300' will get a lot of press coverage and publicity. It should be lots of fun to follow its progress. Meantime, I'm very impressed by Frank Miller, gravely voice and all.

Does anyone remember suggesting that DW should play Vincent Van Gogh? Well, you're getting your wish.

Here's a quote from an article by Rosemary Sorenson under the heading "Art and About" which appeared in the "Courier Mail" (Brisbane?) February 15.

"YES, please. . .David Wenham in anything at all, but how about David Wenham as Vincent Van Gogh. The splendid actor will perform in Songs from the Yellow Bedroom, a staged reading of Van Gogh's letters to his brother, Theo. An idea of the late Richard Wherett, the performance will be directed and adapted by Adam Cook for the Adelaide festival in March."

Rosemary has her appreciation properly adjusted.

What will he do about the ear?

Swooning for DW, red-haired and tormented!

Hello all! My package arrived today, thanks to MoH and Sue! My heart is racing! I'm not sure what to watch first and how much would be suitable to watch in front of my son.

I suppose I'll wait till he's in bed so I can completely concentrate anyway!

Any ideas on what would be a good start? One of the movies like Gettin' Square, Stiff or The Brush Off, or maybe one of the TV show eps?

Best. Valentine's. Day. Ever! Squeeeeeee!

PFaz had the original idea, ages ago. We should all thank her for floating that proposal out into the universe, where it would subliminally reach David's ears. :D

Thanks for sharing the exciting news, MoH!

Not to mention the ears of producers/directors. :)

Lucidity - I watched Stiff today. Murray is just adorable. I can't wait for you to see him. David has such a talent for comedy I think.

MIS has ferreted out some more information about "Songs of the Yellow Room" and posted it at Dessicated Coconut http://dessicatedcoconut.tripod.com/. The Adelaide Bank Festival of the Arts in general seems to be three weeks of a very eclectic and international mixture of theater, music, art, and dance http://www.adelaidefestival.com.au/.

This seems to be a bit of a quickie for DW--only two performances, not too much preparation/rehearsal needed, and he will be doing something for the Australian cultural world that he supports so strongly.

Information on the physical training for the "300" actors http://movies.yahoo.com/feature/300.htm ... ls_mpfVXcA.

This link was found by [/b]Phan[b]--great work! Phan, I coulldn't resist rushing to post this on TORC--I hope you don't mind--it wasn't my intention to steal your thunder :whistle:


Even viewing the clip full screen, it is impossible to identify any of those tortured, writhing, male bodies as DW's. Other than a brief introduction by GB, all the narration is done by the PT instructor. According to him. some of the actors needed to be "reconfigured." Was our slender, fine-boned, hates excercise hero one of them?

Edited to add: Warner Brothers seems to be spreading the publicity around--ComingSoonNews, SuperheroesHype, and now YahooMovies are all getting spots--not that I mind :|

this is awesome :o Yeah I'm pretty sure David had to be reconfigured, but it probably wasn't too hard since he seems to already be pretty fit and he eats healthy so whatever... if *I* had to go through something like that, they'd announce my death on Yahoo! movies and people would be like, "aww, how unfortunate..."

I stand firmly in that I did not see David anywhere in the clip! But I don't want this to destroy my good alliances, of course...

Hello everyone. I actually also put in my fan mail to DW that he should play Van Gogh. Even tho he never replied he at least took my suggestion to heart. :rofl:

Wulffie - congrats on your new love!! I'm so happy for you!!

Thanks for the 300 clip. Very rigorous workout..

Does anyone else love Shaun White aka Flying tomatoe as much as I do?????

I dreamed DW called me last night and we were having a huge discussion about all his roles. :shock:

Hi, all!! Just checking in! :)

MoH and Phaz, thanks for the 300 link!! Gotta check that out! Nice to see some stuff starting to show up-hopefully a prelude to lots of new David material!

SW, your guy sounds wonderful!! Congratulations!

PFaz. Shaun White is a real cutie, isn't he? Very laid-back and mellow-seems to be a fun kinda guy to be around. I foresee his picture going up on a lot of teen girls' bedroom walls!

Then, this thread is partial to redheads! :D

SWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOON for David/ "The Flying Gondorian Tomato" Faramir! :heart:

ouch...

does that mean the wheel base needs to be rearranged or jsut some panel beating and reapinting of teh body...

I thought I caught sight of DW about 30 secs into it.. therer was someone reddish haired doing pushups in background


thanks for the congrats re being in lurve. he is really a lovely man but sdaly he'll be going mountaineering for 3 months in just a fortnight.... I reckon I'll be watching lots ogf DW movies while bawling my eyes out on teh couch :roll:

rewarched stiff after reading teh book... that increased my enjoyment exponentially

ps read something fishy by shane maloney.. there's lots of wet bedraggled murray whelan to feed our imaginations

oh I am happy to translate australianisms as needed :wink:

Stiff and The Brush Off were adorable. I can see why so many people love the Murray Whelan character. Delicious. :o

Were Stiff and The Brush Off made for Australian TV? Maybe it was cable?

Has anyone read 300? Is it worth a gander? I wasn't horribly taken with 'Sin City' -- a tad too much for me.

This will sound silly for sure, but I thought David was a blond, strawberry blond. Is his natural hair more red?

I think David's natural hair is red, really, really red (see those pictures from his visit to Hawaii in 2004). The filmmakers seem to refer him as more of a blonde (BTS, Dust, ATD, the Murray Whelans). DW has probably had so many dye jobs he could give us advice on hair coloring!

A little bit of news concerning "Answered by Fire"--the February 18 "The Age" says it will premiere in May. No precise date, and no mention of a date for Canada.

I've read "300." It's a much simplified and somewhat altered version of the story of the Battle of Thermopylae (Greeks against the Persioans in 480 BC). Very, very violent, very terse dialogue, and not much of it.

Swooooooning for TRHO.

Lucidity - David is a real red head. Like in SdB Babies and I think Little Bit of Soul. See his chest hair in BTS, thats his real hair color.

I read 300 and really enjoyed it. Not much dialogue, like MoH says, but its very interesting if you are a beginner on the Battle of Thermopylae, like I was.

fond memories of Murray Whelan having Devonshire tea ( scones, straawberry jam, cream,leaf tea in a pot)... with a dollop of said cream on the end of his nose

feel like licking that cream off

(BTW I have sore belly muscled form reading teh novel..and I'm only 60 pages into it)

I have to say that Murray and Diver Dan are about my two favorite DW roles, though Alex is up there, too. Is this because I like to think that
the real DW incorporates the best characteristics of all three?

Sw :) :) :) :) :) ning for the multi-faceted one!

Oh, me too, Wulffie. It's weird. I'm still working away at my F/E romance fanfic, and sometimes my characterization of Faramir lapses into Murray Whelan. I can't help myself. An interview from an Australian newspaper quotes Dave as saying that of all his characters he most closely resembles Murray. If that's the case, Kate A. is an especially lucky woman.

BTW, is it possible to get the Shaun Malloney (sp?) series in the US? Maybe through Amazon? I haven't tried yet.

I think it would be unusually awesome if David said, "Actually....I most resemble Faramir."

Wow, I would hunt him down :lol:

:shock: The mind boggles!! It conjures up a wonderful image of a totally hapless and disorganised Faramir (not unlike Raksha's perception of Filmamir ;) ).

I wish someone would do a fanfic like this.

Should we try it on here in true TORC fashion.

Can't get rid of an image now of Faramir walking around Ithilien with a plastic carrier bag.

Mmmmmm. . . .The bullying boss, Angelo Agneli would be Denethor, of course ; Tish, the much-put upon, ever-rescueing secretary would be Madril; Adam-Ant could be Damrod. Is there a place for Trish, the witchy wife?

Denethor: Faramir, just drop whatever you're doing and get over to the Black Gates before lunch. I need someone to show the flag in Mordor. I'd send Boromir, but I really need someone low on the administrative feeding charts. . ."

Madril: "Faramir, you have a meeting with the South Ithilien Resettlement
Commission tonight. Here's the agenda, and don't expect me to do all the work for you next time."

BTW, it looks like we're approaching 300 posts soon and time for a new Faz thread title...."Songs from the Red Bedroom", anybody? :twisted:

M_I_S,

I think you've nominated yourself to start the next thread. "Songs from the Red Bedroom"?--where have you been , young woman? Are we talking red satin sheets, red velvet coverlets, red lacy nighties, or just red. . . .hair?

David's next project is called "Songs from the Yellow Bedroom". It's the Van Gogh one.

I'd volunteer to start the next thread, but I won't be around a reliable computer again until Monday.

Murrimir! :lol:

MoH, we're talking all of the above: a total red makeover. Not just the hair and the sheets, but the drapes, the rug, the sofa, the wallpaper, the ceiling, the dog, the driveway, the surface of the moon, such that all who come into contact with the Red Supernova see nothing but a blinding green afterimage for weeks.
