Matthew Goode tells us about playing Producer Robert Evans.

Goode: “I would suggest that Bob Evans was pretty well known. I found it quite terrifying when Dexter and Nikki gave me the job. I felt a lot better when I was doing my scenes with Marlon Brando (Justin Chambers). That actually gave me a lot of comfort. I was like, ‘I’m up against him, but let’s see what you’ve got pal!’. There’s an awful lot you can find on the internet. As Bob himself said, ‘There’s always your version, the other person’s version and then the truth.’. Even just the foreword of his book by Peter Bart, there’s a really interesting idea to play a character we don’t really know much about, which I thought Josh (Zuckerman) did brilliantly. Even in the foreword it gives you quite a bit of information. I found out a lot by talking to people in Hollywood and they’d go, ‘Hey, he used to go to the same hairdresser as me, this, that and the other…’. All the stories, considering there’s a lot of contentious stuff about his history, most of these people would say ‘He was the nicest, he was the kindest, he was the most generous’, and perhaps his downfall was due to his more angel side than his darker side.”.

Entertainment weekly have published the first picture of Matthew Goode in his new movie – ‘Silent Night’ 

BEWARE SPOILERS!!!

From the start, Silent Night is jarringly upfront about what it intends to do with its starry cast: Kill them. All of them. No, really; that’s in the second sentence of the official plot description. But the why of it all is a jolly mystery weathered with wild energy by an expert crop of actors who, whether sharing secrets around a grim Christmas dinner table or drunkenly dancing away their final moments as friends and family, work through mutual joys and shared demons with endearing vigor that makes parting with them a bittersweet sorrow.   [EW]

First trailer for Downton Abbey star Matthew Goode’s new movie The Duke

And it looks absolutely wonderful.

Downton Abbey star Matthew Goode is fighting for justice in the wonderful first trailer for new movie The Duke.

Based on an extraordinary true story, The Duke follows 60-year-old taxi driver Kempton Bunton who stole Goya’s portrait of the Duke of Wellington from London’s National Gallery in 1961.

It marked the first – and still only – theft in the Gallery’s history, and Kempton proceeded to send ransom notes declaring that he’d only return the painting if the government invested more in care for the elderly.

Kempton was specifically interested in his long-running campaign for pensioners to receive free television – but it took 50 years for the full story to emerge and it was revealed he had spun a web of lies.

The only truth was that he was a good man, determined to change the world and save his marriage to Dorothy Bunton, and The Duke tells the story of how and why he used the painting to do just that.

Directed by Roger Michell (Notting Hill), the movie stars acting legends Jim Broadbent and Helen Mirren in the roles of Kempton and Dorothy, with Goode playing Jeremy Hutchinson, the barrister who defended Kempton in 1965.

The Duke received its world premiere at last year’s Venice Film Festival where it received widespread critical acclaim, currently standing at the coveted 100% on Rotten Tomatoes.

After we see him in The Duke, Goode will be reprising his role as Henry Talbot in the eagerly-awaited Downton Abbey 2. The sequel is filming right now and will be released in cinemas this Christmas.

He’ll also be seen in another movie based on true events in Sky original movie The Colour Room, alongside Bridgerton‘s Phoebe Dynevor.

The Duke is released in UK cinemas on September 3.

Matthew Goode has always been very clear that he does not want to participate in social media but for a very short time last weekend he opened a Twitter account [verified by Steven Cree].

Matthew Goode’s Brief Encounter with Twitter. This is hilarious. Matthew had a few drinks and joined Twitter - for a very brief time.  Obviously we can’t rule out a ‘fake’ but whoever it was they know Matthew really well so it could be a family...

 

Thank you to @adow-trash on Tumblr for passing on all of his messages –

Matthew changed his @ to goodey101 shortly after his initial tweet to Steven Cree.

Sadly Matthew deleted his account after gaining over a thousand followers in record time!   It was fun while it lasted.

Thanks to @adow-trash for the screen grabs.

Bridgerton star Phoebe Dynevor brings period piece to Birmingham city centre

A busy Birmingham street was transformed into a scene from the 1920s as a new biopic was filmed there.

Old vehicles from the 1920s era including an open top bus were set outside on Corporation Street, which had been turned into a showroom for The Colour Room.

It also saw stars of popular programmes such as Bridgerton, the Crown, Call The Midwife and Meal for Two take in the sights and sounds of Birmingham city centre during filming.

The film tells the story of Clarice Cliff, played by Bridgerton star Phoebe Dynevor, who became a rising star in the pottery industry in Stoke-on-Trent.

Dynevor, who shot to fame over Christmas for her role as Daphne in Regency romp, was seen filming scenes in Apache’s Bar and Restaurant with the unique brick buildings of Corporation Street forming a colourful backdrop.

She was joined in filming by Matthew Goode, who has taken on the role of Colley Shorter, the factory owner who became impressed by Clarice’s work and helped stoke her talent.

Matthew Goode starred as Antony Armstrong-Jones in the Crown, and was joined by Call The Midwife’s Bronwyn James, Laura White, who appeared on The X Factor, Birdcage’s Safia Oakley Green and Meal For Two star Anna-Kate Golding.

The film shows how Cliff broke the glass ceiling to revolutionise the workplace during the 20th Century and is directed by Claire McCarthy.

Dynevor said: ‘I am so excited to be joining the cast of The Colour Room, especially in the role as one of the nation’s most celebrated artists, Clarice Cliff.

“It’s truly such an honour to take on such a remarkable character.

“The script is a beautifully written contemporary take on the 20th century, and I feel proud to be working with such a strong female team, both in front and behind the camera.”

“I look forward to telling Clarice’s story and of course working with Matthew too.”
