Rhys-Meyers’ Cheating Parts 25/04/2000
Irish actor Jonathan Rhys-Meyers, last seen gracing the British small screen in “Gormenghast”, has nabbed two choice roles in Hollywood. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Rhys-Meyers has signed up for two boyfriend roles, requiring him to play the love interests of Christina Ricci and Rachael Leigh Cook in Prozac Nation and Conspiracy of Weeds respectively.
Unfortunately, Rhys-Meyers’ bad boy persona as honed to perfection in Ang Lee’s “Ride With The Devil” and “Gormenghast” looks set to be his stock in trade as both roles show his character cheating on his girlfriend.
