Oliver Powell does it again, and we have another actor to add to the cast:
Ian McElhinney (62) is a Northern Irish top actor with stage, movie, and tv experience. As far as period pieces go, you may have last seen him as Pope Clement VII in the first season of The Tudors, and when it comes to more fantastical works, he was in City of Ember shot in the Paint Hall studios just two years ago. An interview with him in the capacity of a stage director can be found here (first of four parts).
Hear Me Roar: We are slowly filling the ranks, and the quality of choices made does not seem to be subsiding. Based on what I have seen of McElhinney, he fits the role more than well, and no surprise. This is the first of the many promised announcements this week, so brace yourselves.
