Video Interview With Colin Firth and Ben Barnes

Colin Firth and Ben Barnes are the stars of Dorian Gray, which hits UK theatres today! Watch nearly 7 minutes of a video interview with these two stars as they discuss the movie, their roles and each other. Great poster. As for Colin, I'll watch him do anything, even a deodorant commercial.

This reviewer liked Colin's turn as a baddie, but thought the movie was MEH. The reviewer from Screen.com also thought that Colin's performance was better than the film. Colin's next project will be to play King George VI, Queen Elizabeth II's father. As an aside, I found it interesting that Dorian Gray was scheduled to open on 09/09/09.

Great poster,

and see I told everyone Colin Firth really is a bad guy and now we get to see his true colours!

Yeah..... now you will believe the Nigester (insert determined look of one eyebrow raised).

Из удовольствий наиболее приятны те, которые встречаются наиболее редко. Самые, лучшие духи в маленьких флаконах. Отдайтесь вашему делу всем сердцем и душою, но посмотрите прежде всего хорошее ли это дело. Разумный гонится за тем что приятно, а за тем что избавляет отнеприятностей. Вся Россия, это пьющий Гамлет.

I've wanted a "Dorian Gray" remake -- the original film was good but flawed -- but I'm disappointed in what I've seen of this one. Looks like they've committed the near-unforgivable sin of watering down Wilde's wit.

Man! Colin looks really cute with facial hair!

(sigh) Will this movie even be released in the US? It's like The Young Victoria. We are finally getting it in November!!!

Thanks for sharing interview and poster!!

I have seen Colin Firth as a bad guy and he is good as Nigel says but I prefer him as a good guy...because he's good he is even better playing a bad guy...get it ?
