R3 - You have GOT to be fucking kidding me.

That performance was brilliant. He outshone every other lead in the rest of The Hollow Crown series, including Rory Kinnear as Bolingbroke, Jeremy Irons as Henry IV, Hiddleston as Prince Hal and Henry V, Tom Sturridge as Henry VI, and Cumberbatch as the worst Richard III I have ever seen. And except for Cumberbatch, the rest of those named were very, very good.

No, he isn't handsome but he's very intense. First came across him in "The Hour". I think frankly that he's probably one of the five best actors of his generation.

Perfume was weird. I knew a frau who loved it.

Whishaw plays a guy who targets beautiful virgins to murder and use their vagina fat to make perfume. Would virginal vages smell better than nonvirginal? And do vages on beautiful virgins smell better than those of ugly virgins? Apparently, yes.

We love him, but besides being a fantastic talented actor he's kind of boring in real life? Which I appreciate, it makes me respect him more than desperate insta-whores posing in speedos for paps like Luke Evans. I think he could be the first openly gay actor to win a Best Actor Oscar if the right role comes along (Freddie Mercury SHOULD have been it) and if Sir Ian doesn't get there first

[quote]Maybe it's just a partner.

They had a civil partnership in 2012.

He's a jobbing actor in that he takes on anything. Nothing is too big or too small for him. Considering he's in the James Bond franchise, and he's won BAFTAs and an Emmy (or was it the Golden Globe?) he still does short films that play in film fests and he's still the voice of Paddington for the Nickelodeon series. He'll be in the next season of Fargo for FX and he's doing another BBC series.

He's not handsome, and so he was pretty cruelly miscast as Sebastian Flyte in the awful film version of "Brideshead Revisited."

But he is a singular screen presence, and has been terrific in multiple films and TV projects, including "Bright Star," "A Very English Scandal," and "The Hollow Crown." I will say that he does have a pretty narrow range (he's always playing anxious artsy types), but within that range he is superb.

Wishaw's Richard II (and that entire production) was my first exposure to the play and I fell for it big time. The incredible poetry, the "this happy breed" speech (among many), the resonant garden embarrassment of riches...I subsequently saw the David Tennant production, which, but for its superb incidental musical score, didn't have the same impact. I'm curious to see the Fiona Shaw film which is currently on Prime, I believe.

R65 The movie is terrible (but the trailer is fantastic).

Cloud atlas was not made for being a film, it's too complex to translate well into a film. Even a tv show will have problems to adapt. The estructure of the novel, six linked stories (narrated till the middle of the story before going to the next one and going back in inverse order till end in the first story) is not the easies to make it easy to follow when you put that on images.

But even after reading the novel the film is extremelly confusing

Cloud Atlas: I've read the book right before the movie came out and saw the movie maybe two weeks after finishing - and actually loved both. Books and movies are different medias and can (and should and need to) tell stories differently.

My most favorite roles of Ben Wishaw are London spy (probably totally underrated) and Q in James Bond/Skyfall. Just love him.

He's more McKellen than Courtenay, though Courtenay's steady sixty-year career, 3 BAFTAs and many other awards/nominations seem to remedy whatever infection lurked.

Did anyone see him in "The Crucible"? He seems wrong for the part.

by Anonymousreply 17307/31/2020

Is he a slut?

by Anonymousreply 17407/31/2020

I saw The Crucible, Whishaw was good, as was Saorsie -- it was the staging that was all wrong. Ivo van Hove's showy shtick can really get in his own way sometimes. He never gave us any reason for setting it in a schoolhouse with everybody in uniforms, it was distracting

Of course.

He may be a fine actor but he does nothing for me sexually. Too pale. Too skinny, almost anorexic.

He gives great head.

Well you got it half right - he IS gay and married.

All this "ugly" talk is ugly. He's a remarkably talented man, and he's not a DL fave because he's not a mess.

So shut up, girls.

by Anonymousreply 18711/22/2020

Kind of plain to me.

Devastatingly attractive to me. The eyes, humility, intelligence, expression, lithe and feline.

The year he won his Golden Globe or Emmy for "An English Scandal" there were rumors that he and his partner broke up, but he thanked him during the speech. Now in The Times interview are hints that there were problems in the relationship.

I tell him about an Instagram live show I did called Love in the Time of Corona, about the problems when the dynamics of relationships suddenly changed and people couldn’t get away from each other. The divorce rate went up. “Yes,” he nods sagely.

Did he survive? “Yes, I’ve survived, but I’m not going to talk about it.” There is no point in meandering around how the dynamic of Whishaw and his partner might have changed – he just looks too done in to talk about it.

He's one of the best things about this season of "Fargo."

I quite like Ben Wish and his acting.

The WW button next to the comment left by R54 should have been dinging nonstop! VERY witty!

********That should have been R55's comment I referenced. R55, and his comment deserve multitudes of WWs**********

I find him attractive but I also find Adam Driver attractive.

by Anonymousreply 19511/22/2020

No question he is a talented actor. He was great in "Spectre" as Q and thank God they let him out of the office for once. But he never has appealed to me sexually. He looks to me like someone who has trouble smiling. And IMHO he's way to pale and skinny.

Lucky husband, he's gorgeous, absolutely my type. Even with the beard he's lovely, and I dont normally like beards.

Thanks you to those upthread that posted cock pics too.

R200 I prefer my answer to Adam Driver:

No, go away now.

He was excellent in London Spy. If you haven't seen it then make sure you do.

I don't know if I'd call him handsome, but he does have an interesting face, and he's a very fine actor.

by Anonymousreply 20301/04/2021

Good thing he's not American - much harder to make it as an actor when you're not attractive, no matter how talented you are.

by Anonymousreply 20401/04/2021

Wrong...acting is a talent, not a beauty contest!! Such different dynamics across the pond

Where’s that Shug Avery “You sho is ugly” meme when you need it?

by Anonymousreply 206Last Wednesday at 7:45 AM

He's not handsome in the least. He's homely and slight.

He was insanely miscast as Lord Sebastian Flyte.

by Anonymousreply 207Last Wednesday at 8:33 AM

He was awful in A Very English Scandal and gets a BAFTA every time he farts.

Clearly someone has a vendetta against beautiful Ben or is simply blind and brain dead.

[quote] beautiful Ben

Have you met him face-to-face? without makeup-up and photoshopping?

He'd be OK if you were a midget (or a dwarf) but as far as I'm concerned he's a satisfactory character with a pleasant face and a bird-like physique.

by Anonymousreply 210Last Wednesday at 2:31 PM

No, r209, he’s just homely.
