Mark in Old Vic's production of 'All About My Mother'

Post by Geoff Tipps' Joke Writer » Sat Jun 30, 2007 2:18 pm

Mark has been cast in the Old Vic's production of Pedro Almodovar's oscar winning film 'All About My Mother'.

Mark is playing the role of transexual Agrado.

He'll have to negotiate the Old Vic stage wearing high heels apparently which will make him about 7 foot tall!

The play is on for a 13 week run, opening on 4th September (previews from 25th August) & ending on 24th November.

You listened to Jonathan Ross too then! (I only did thanks to Sotr!)

I loved them giving the gents Spice Girl names: Victorian Gent, Shy Gent, Drowsy Gent and Cocky Gent.
Ace.

(can anyone who didn't hear guess which is which?)

Victorian Gent is obviously Mark
Shy Gent - could be reece or Jez
Cocky Gent - could be reece too
Drowsy Gent - could that be Steve in reference to his new play?!

Yay!
You win!

Reece was Cocky. But it was Jonathan that said that. I fancy Mark (like us) would have named him Handsome Gent.

I would have to passionately agree there.

Is there a pic of Mark's character anywhere? From the film, I mean. I'd love to know what sort of costume he's going to be wearing.

DAMMIT! I didn't listen, I was packing :(

God! I love Pedro Almodovar!! I recently watched Bad Education again, awesome film. I really must try to see this play with Mark in....will be tricky though....in an ideal world I could try and make it a double bill seeing Steve in his show too....

And LMAO@ Reece being called 'Cocky Gent'!
