Andrew Lincoln And His Cue Cards Are Back In 'Love Actually' Reunion Teaser
Huffington Post - 8 days
BBC One has just released a teaser for the upcoming “Love Actually” mini-reunion, and to us, it’s perfect.  The 19-second spot features Andrew Lincoln recreating one of the original movie’s most memorable scenes. You know the one: he appears at Keira Knightley’s doorstep to profess his love for her using cue cards. However, his message is a little different this time around.  “Hello, I just wanted to ask without hope or agenda (and just because it’s nearly Red Nose Day) that you’ll join us for a very special reunion called Red Nose Day Actually on Friday 24th March BBC One … Actually,” Lincoln’s cards read. The “Love Actually” mini-reunion was created for Red Nose Day, the biennial event that supports the British charity Comic Relief, which was co-founded by the movie’s director Richard Curtis. Along with Lincoln, Hugh Grant, Keira Knightley, Colin Firth, Bill Nighy, Liam Neeson, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Rowan Atkinson and others will reprise their roles fo ...

Behold The First 'Historically Accurate' Portrait Of Mr. Darcy
Huffington Post - about 1 month
For a novel originally titled First Impressions, Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice spends little time describing what one of its principal characters, Mr. Darcy, actually looks like. This hasn’t stopped readers from surmising ― or from projecting their own favored attributes onto a character who at the beginning of the story seems priggish and by the end is cast as kind-hearted and reserved. Someone so dreamy is sure to have the boyish, devil-may-care looks of James Dean, right? Austen does, briefly, tell us what Lizzy Bennett might look like, from the perspective of Darcy, just after he realizes he has feelings for her. Darcy confesses that she is “rendered uncommonly intelligent by the beautiful expression of her dark eyes,” and he is “forced to acknowledge her figure to be light and pleasing.” function onPlayerReadyVidible(e){'undefined'!=typeof HPTrack&&HPTrack.Vid.Vidible_track(e)}!function(e,i){if(e.vdb_Player){if('object'==typeof commercial_video){v ...

Tom Ford, Newly Enlightened
Huffington Post - 4 months
Tom Ford is not the same person he was 10 years ago.  Recovering from an acrimonious split with Gucci after a decade as the brand’s creative director, Ford had just launched his eponymous line. “I knew I wanted to go back into fashion, but I also still want to do a film — I don’t even want to get into it, because everybody will laugh at me and I’m sick of it, but I am really serious about making movies and I will get one made,” Ford told New York magazine in 2007. Two years later, he self-financed the tender, surreal “A Single Man,” which won enthusiastic reviews and an Oscar nomination for Colin Firth. He has since dressed Michelle Obama for dinner at Buckingham Palace, inspired a Jay Z song and welcomed a son with his husband.  No one is laughing at Ford anymore. His second directorial effort, “Nocturnal Animals,” opens this weekend. The layered melodrama has proven more divisive than “A Single Man,” and that’s a good thing. People pay attention to Ford’s films.  Based ...

The 'Bridget Jones's Baby' Novel Proves Rom-Com Franchises Are A Mistake
Huffington Post - 5 months
You can be highbrow. You can be lowbrow. But can you ever just be brow? Welcome to Middlebrow, a weekly examination of pop culture. “Bridget Jones’s Baby” is that rarest of things: a third installment in a romantic comedy franchise. As someone who likes a healthy dollop of her entertainment served up frothy and sweet, I loved the original book and movie. The second, “Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason,” struck me as silly and superfluous. The third? Well ... huh.   The latest film, “Bridget Jones’s Baby” actually startled me, because I’d read the third Bridget book from Helen Fielding, Mad About the Boy, and it was decidedly not about a baby. Instead, it portrayed a widowed Bridget, struggling to parent her children and get her mojo back after losing Mark Darcy to a landmine explosion during one of his humanitarian trips. Not to worry: Fielding has finally presented us with the book version of Bridget Jones’s Baby, set just over a decade before Mark shuffles premat ...

The End Of 'Bridget Jones's Baby' Sets Up The Potential For A Fourth Installment
Huffington Post - 6 months
Even if it feels like every studio movie garners a sequel nowadays, it’s rare to see a female-fronted trilogy. Except for “The Hunger Games,” no lucrative franchise ― let’s say three or more installments ― with a singular female lead springs to mind. Especially not one that doesn’t involve a weapon more piercing than self-deprecating sass. This weekend, that changed. “Bridget Jones’s Baby” opened 15 years after the original, “Bridget Jones’s Diary,” and 12 after its inferior sequel, “The Edge of Reason.”  That’s a particular point of pride for Sharon Maguire, who directed 2001’s “Bridget Jones’s Diary” but says she skipped out on 2004’s “Edge of Reason” because she’d become a “breeding machine.” If anything, having kids readied Maguire to helm this particular chapter in our beloved Bridget’s life. (Hi, Renée Zellweger! Welcome back.) Paul Feig and Peter Cattaneo were originally tapped to direct, but they exited the project in the wake of delays and reported creative differences. B ...

'Bridget Jones's Baby' Is Worth The Wait, And A Whole Lot Of Fun

I’m ready for this, there’s no denying That lyric ― from Jess Glynne’s song “Hold My Hand” ― has been appropriately featured in the trailers for “Bridget Jones’s Baby,” and pretty much explains our feelings on the new installment of the beloved film franchise finally coming out. The rom-com is definitely worth the wait, and, let us assure you, it will make you belly laugh from beginning to end.  The film sees the long-awaited on-screen return of Renée Zellweger, who took six years off to focus on life outside of Hollywood. Of course, it was the one and only Bridget Jones who convinced the actress to re-enter her career, and our hearts, once again. “It was pretty selfishly motivated, actually,” Zellweger told AOL Build host Ricky Camilleri of reviving the character. “She’s kind of fun. She’s really fun to play!” Thinking back, Zellweger beat out a competitive list of actresses to nab the coveted role of Bridget, an accident-prone, self-conscious, love-hungry ...

    More Details Hide Details It was released in the UK in November 2012 and was a financial and critical failure, attracting many negative reviews. Empire's Kim Newman wrote "Firth starts out homaging Caine with his horn-rimmed cool but soon defaults to his usual repressed British clod mode", whilst Time Out London called his a "likeable performance", although criticised the film overall. Stephen Dalton writing in the The Hollywood Reporter said "To his credit, Firth keeps his performance grounded in downbeat realism while all around are wildly mugging in desperate pursuit of thin, forced laughs.

However, Peter Hitchens writing in the Daily Mail expressed reservations that Firth looked too young for the part (even though he technically was) being "of the post-war generation, who escaped wartime privation," and therefore not "old enough or ravaged enough".
    He received an Academy Award for Best Actor in a motion picture for The King's Speech on 27 February 2011.

    More Details Hide Details
    Firth's most notable and acclaimed role to date has been his 2010 portrayal of King George VI in The King's Speech, a performance that earned him an Oscar and multiple worldwide best actor awards.
    More Details Hide Details Identified in the late 1980s with the "Brit Pack" of rising, young British actors, it was not until Firth's portrayal of Mr. Darcy in the 1995 television adaptation of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice that he received more widespread attention. This led to roles in films such as The English Patient, Bridget Jones's Diary (for which Firth was nominated for a BAFTA), Shakespeare in Love, and Love Actually. In 2009, Firth received widespread critical acclaim for his leading role in A Single Man, for which Firth gained his first Academy Award nomination, and won a BAFTA Award.
  • 2009
    Age 48
    At the 66th Venice International Film Festival in 2009 Firth was awarded the Volpi Cup for Best Actor for his role in Tom Ford's directorial debut A Single Man as a college professor grappling with solitude after the death of his longtime partner.

  • 2007
    Age 46
    Firth was an executive producer for the film In Prison My Whole Life, featuring Noam Chomsky and Angela Davis. The film was selected to the 2007 London Film Festival and the 2008 Sundance Film Festival.
    More Details Hide Details In December 2010, Firth was guest editor on BBC Radio 4's Today programme, during which he commissioned research to scan the brains of politicians to see if there were any differences depending on political leanings. He was then credited as one of four co-authors of an academic paper into human brains, the others being University College London researchers. The results of the study suggested that conservatives have greater amygdala volume and liberals have greater volume in their anterior cingulate cortex.
  • THIRTIES
  • 1997
    Age 36
    In 1997, Firth married Italian film producer and director Livia Firth (née Giuggioli).
    More Details Hide Details They have two sons, Luca (born March 2001) and Matteo (born August 2003). The family now live in both Chiswick, London and Umbria, Italy. Firth started to learn Italian when he and Giuggioli began to date and is now fluent in the language. Firth is a supporter of Arsenal F.C. Firth was awarded an honorary degree on 19 October 2007 from the University of Winchester.
  • 1995
    Age 34
    It was through his role as the aloof and haughty aristocrat Mr. Darcy in the 1995 BBC television adaptation of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice that Firth finally became a household name.
    More Details Hide Details He was producer Sue Birtwistle's first choice for the part, eventually being persuaded to take it, despite initial reluctance as he was unfamiliar with Austen's writing. Firth and co-star Jennifer Ehle began a romantic relationship during the filming of the series, which only received media attention after the couple's separation. Sheila Johnston wrote that Firth's approach to the part "lent Darcy complex shades of coldness, even caddishness, in the early episodes." The serial was a major international success, and unexpectedly elevated Firth to stardom, in some part due to an iconic scene in which he emerged in a wet shirt after swimming. Although Firth did not mind being recognised as "a romantic idol as a Darcy with smouldering sex appeal" in a role that "officially turned him into a heart-throb", he expressed the wish not to be associated with Pride and Prejudice forever. He was therefore reluctant to accept similar roles and risk becoming typecast. For a time it did seem as if Mr Darcy would overshadow the rest of his career, and there were humorous allusions to the role in his next five movies. The most notable of these was the casting of Firth as love interest Mark Darcy in the film adaptation of Bridget Jones's Diary, itself a modern-day retelling of Pride and Prejudice. Firth accepted the part as he saw it as an opportunity to lampoon his Mr Darcy character. The film was very successful and critically well liked.
  • 1994
    Age 33
    Firth's acting career slowed down until they broke up in 1994, and his return to the UK.

    More Details Hide Details The family moved to the Lower Mainland of British Columbia, Canada.
    In 1989 he played the title role in Miloš Forman's Valmont, based on Les Liaisons dangereuses.
    More Details Hide Details This was released just a year after Dangerous Liaisons, and did not make a big impact in comparison. The same year he played a paranoid, socially awkward character in Argentinian psychological thriller Apartment Zero.
    Firth's performance led to a Royal TV Society Best Actor Award and he was nominated for the 1989 BAFTA Television Award.

    Age 27
    Firth portrayed real-life British soldier Robert Lawrence MC in the 1988 BBC dramatisation Tumbledown.

The film attracted controversy at the time, with criticism coming from left and right ends of the political spectrum.
  • 1987
