Rumor has it that the star of NBC's 'Dracula' will appear in J.J. Abrams' film.
Jonathan Rhys Meyers, seen here for NBC's 'Dracula,' may be in the new Star Wars.
"Star Wars: Episode VII" is coming in 2015 and we can pretty much expect news (and speculation) about the movie to appear on a fairly regular basis from now until then. Currently we know that J.J. Abrams is directing a script from Michael Arndt and that Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, and Harrison Ford are all due to appear.
Now, a report comes from Latino Review that the star of "The Tudors," Jonathan Rhys Meyers, is being added to the cast. They point out that the actor appeared previously in Abrams' "Mission: Impossible III" and consequently already has a relationship with the director.
What is certain at this point is that the Henry VIII actor is going to be appearing on the small screen once again come the fall. NBC announced at their upfront presentation last week that they would be airing "Dracula," which features Rhys Meyers in the title role, at 10pm on Fridays this fall. The actor also appears in the upcoming film "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones."
We will, of course, bring you more information as it comes in.
Right, so it's now... summer, or at least what passes for that in London which means we get to use our marvellous green spaces for weekend practice. And, I'm going on a bit of a recording binge.
Or at least trying to get into the habit... you see, video is a great training tool. When fighting, you're not always sure what you've done and you may not be aware of your habits. These become quite glaring when you watch the fight from the outside. This is also a reason why I should get the class to judge/watch eachother fighting so they can see where the flaws and openings are.
This kind of observation is quite important when you're fighting because it tells you which part of a fight to play on.
Watching back on my stuff... It's a little different because generally I fight to teach, so I don't fight as hard or as surely as I would if it were "proper" stuff. That's not to say that I'm giving my opponent's an easy ride, but I try to leave obvious openings and so-on. (Sometimes, I don't... mostly because it's difficult to deliberately leave an attack unguarded)
My footwork has always been a bit stiff, it's better than it was but it still lets me down. But I'm pretty happy with most of the other stuff. My class is generally looking pretty good, and it's mostly a case of sparring and interpreting original texts to get a wider idea about things.
