Gormenghast press

There is a small feature on “Gormenghast” in the new May 2000 Vanity Fair (thanks Taarna). No new images but the first major mention of “Gormenghast” in a US publication. Here’s a particularly nice quote: “As for Steerpike, the lithe Lucifer who escapes from the kitchen, he’s played by Jonathan Rhys Meyers in a protean performance. Don’t let the Burne-Jones mouth fool you–he’s Irish, with quicksilver instincts at his service. His energy, his beauty, his punk abandon–Meyers makes Steerpike a Mozartean antihero, the wrong kind of sublime. He gets...

Clearing up Rumors

There is a wonderful feature on “Titus” in the February 2000 issue of American Cinematographer. And you can catch Jonny in the February issue of Cult Times. He’s been popping up in numerous publications over in the UK. Which has lead to some rumors that I’ve been asked about. The incident of Jonny being held up at gunpoint is something that happened to him several years ago and not something that has just occured. That is why I haven’t posted anything about it. And Jonny did state in an...

Sneak peek at Titus

Miramax has pushed back “B. Monkey” once again for release September 9 of this year. Will it appear before the century is over? I wonder. “Velvet Goldmine” is nominated for 2 BAFTA’s for Best Costume Design and Best Makeup/Hair. It should win both. Sandy Powell won an Oscar for her work in that other Miramax film, but it was nice she mentioned “VG” in her speech and it was hilarious that Whoppi Goldberg attempted to dress like Brian Slade. At the Independent Spirit Awards, “VG” did win for best...

Model or not?

Jonathan was set to model in the New York Versace show, but missed his flight to NY. Instead he’s been in Ireland getting ready to film his next movie after spending time back in Rome for reshoots and additional shooting for “Titus”. Miramax has not listed or done any press for “B. Monkey” so no word on when or if this film will be released. Over at Young Hollywood.com, Jonathan has been picked as one of the most promising new faces of 1998.

Off to Rome

Due to a delayed plane, Jonathan was late to the premiere of “Velvet Goldmine” at the Edinburgh Film Festival. Jonny recently did a lot of press in New York and London, so be on the look-out for interviews and features in the coming months. Right now, he is vacationing in Africa before he is off to Rome to film “Titus Andronicus”, which has been confirmed.
