Los Angeles Times

Jonathan Rhys Meyers: Creating a king By Denise Martin Los Angeles Time, June 4, 2008 Jonathan Rhys Meyers gives King Henry VIII chiseled good looks and an intensity to boot. BY NOW, it’s hard not to think of Henry VIII as the smoldering monarch. As played by Jonathan Rhys Meyers in Showtime’s “The Tudors,” young Henry may as well be a rock star.

Details on “Shelter”, which wrapped yesterday in Pittsburgh: Super scary ‘Shelter’ wrapping up here today Tuesday, May 13, 2008 By Barbara Vancheri, Leave it to the Swedes. Bjorn Stein and Mans Marlind have found a civilized, common-sense way to make a movie: by co-directing it. They flip a coin to see who gets the first day and take turns from there. They do all the pre-production and post-production together, but each directs every other day and serves as “best buddy” on the off days. That is how they’ve been...
