Remember that “Bigga Than Ben” is out on Friday, October 10th in the UK.
“We slept on mattresses in a flat in north London together with a case of vodka and cigarettes and Susie [the director] literally said ‘don’t come in looking pretty in the morning’ and so we didn’t.
“I also bought a phonetic Russian phrasebook to be able to communicate at all because it was very difficult for the first week or two.” Source
Also, yesterday a “Behind The Scenes” look at “Dorian Gray” aired in BBC UK, here it is!
Shock Till You Drop has posted a larger version of the first picture of ‘Dorian Gray’. The film, which is currently being filmed in London, stars Ben alongside Colin Firth, Ben Chaplin, Rebecca Hall, Fiona Shaw and Rachel Hurd-Wood.
There’s been much discussion regarding Ben’s looks for ‘Dorian Gray’ as Dorian is described as a fair haired and blue eyed young lad which is not how Ben looks in the promotional pic (I personally do not mind). However, I tried giving Ben a Dorian Gray look just to see if he could pull it off, and he indeed can. Take a look:
What do you think? Discuss away!
Also, IMDB confirms a US release for “Bigga than Ben” scheduled for November 18th, 2008.
First of all, THANK YOU for all your birthday messages in this post! They seriously made my birthday so much better, so thank you. I really appreciate it and I did not expect it at all (though I think that what Tran did was a little over the top). Anyway, thank you!
I have quite a lot of stuff to update you on… I hope you didn’t think I abandoned the site.
Thanks again to our lovely scan provider Debbie for sending these amazing scans our way.
This spread is from an unknown Bulgarian publication (if someone does know, please let us know!):
Also, here’s the cover for an (again!) unknown Israeli publication, the cover of the May issue of TopMagazine and the cover for the August issue of Aera – all thanks to Debbie. Enjoy!
New “Bigga than Ben” Promotional pictures, check them out! Cobakka is looking fierce.
» News on “The Picture of Dorian Gray”:
Thompson’s frequent film partner Oliver Parker is already in preproduction on a dark version of Oscar Wilde’s Dorian Gray, with Barnes and Firth joined by Rebecca Hall, Rachel Hurd Wood, Fiona Shaw, Emilia Fox, Charlotte Riley, Johnny Harris, Maryam D’Abo and Douglas Henshall. Source
Principal photography is set to begin July 28, 2008, with Oliver Parker directing a script by relative newcomer Toby Finlay. According to producer Barnaby Thompson, “the idea is to give it a sexy, contemporary feel but still doing it in period.” Source
So, apparently filmimg starts on July 28, that’s tomorrow! and a good friend of Ben, fellow actor Colin Firth, is in it too.
If anyone has/finds more information, do not hesitate to let us know!
I have opened a Youtube channel for BBF. Make sure to suscribe to our videos as I will be uploading more videos soon.

I am accepting submissions until Tuesday. Moreover, if you want to submit just text (a story, a song, a poem, etc…) because you are not good with graphics, you can do so. If you haven’t heard back from us, your entry has most likely been accepted, though I will let everyone know if their submissions have been accepted. Thanks to everyone who has participated so far!
