Tidbit Roundup

I’ve given up on actually posting Cloud Atlas premiere photos.  I think I got a few up, otherwise, the usual photo agencies are worth checking out.

I’ve been searching and searching and haven’t been able to find any interviews with Mr. Whishaw from the premiere.  Pretty much everyone else talked it up on the red carpet, but it looks like Ben’s been missed.  If anyone has found any, send them my way!

Hitfix has an article about Cloud Atlas’s potential Oscar hopes, and they single Ben out (albeit with his name horribly butchered….):

Supporting Actor – Ben Winshaw – If Academy members fall for ‘Atlas’ Winshaw could be its biggest awards season benefactor.


Ben is listed as an attendee for next month’s Skyfall premiere (along with some royals!).  Londoners can stake out Royal Albert Hall on October 23—if you do, send in some photos!

I had previously posted links to Ben’s appearance on the Hamlet episode of Shakespeare Uncovered.  Now, it looks like his other two appearances are available: The Tempest and Richard II.

Shakespeare Uncovered to Air in U.S. Next Year

Via David Tennant News, the Shakespeare Uncovered series is set to air in the U.S. on PBS early next year.  Ben appeared in three episodes—Richard II, The Tempest, and Hamlet—so this will be great!

The Hollow Crown is also set to air on PBS at some point, though no word yet on when.

Found this shortly after lamenting it wasn’t available and now finally have time to post this!  This is part 1 of 4 of the Hamlet episode of Shakespeare Uncovered in which Ben Whishaw appeared last week. 

Part 2, Part 3, Part 4
