Oh lordy, lordy, lordy.
Can't you see this man on the cover of a historical novel??? He looks exactly as I imagine Olivier Duchon, my gold-mine manager who goes up against my lawyer when one of his men is injured the mine refuses to pay-out. I haven't written this novel yet, but now I have a visual to inspire me. I'm expecting to release it in early 2019.
Luke Evans IS quite a Tuesday treat. Not only is he delicious to look at but he has a fantastic singing voice. I'm sure this is because he had lots of practice on the London Stage before transitioning to Hollywood, playing in Avenue Q, Rent, and La Cava. Here's a fun clip from the Ellen DeGeneres Show >
He's currently staring in the new TNT show, The Alienist. According to TNT Drama, "The Alienist is a psychological thriller set in 1896 about the hunt for a serial killer responsible for the gruesome murders of boy prostitutes that have gripped New York City." Obviously not a rom com but it's received good reviews. Please leave a comment if you've seen it! Let us know what you think.
Have you seen the live action Beauty and the Beast? Luke plays one of my favorite villains of all time: Gaston. He is amazing in the part because he brings a humanity to Gaston that makes him almost believable; certainly believable within the context of the fairy tale; especially believable when compared to all the other characters, including Belle. If you haven't seen the live action Beauty and the Beast because you were afraid it would ruin your experience of the animated version? Put your fears aside and SEE IT this week! It's on Netflix. Then come back here and let me know that I was right, hehe. Or hell, let me know I was wrong. :-)
For your visual delight, Luke has been in the following movies that I would see:
The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies as Bard (2014)
Dracula Untold as Vlad (2014)
The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug as Bard/Girion (2013)
The Three Musketeers as Aramis (2011)
Immortals as Zeus (2011)
Robin Hood as the Sheriff's Thug (2010) - you get a two-fer treat with this one as it stars Russell Crowe
Clash of the Titans as Apollo (2010)
