“Bigga Than Ben” DVD Extras

I have added well over 400 screencaptures of Ben in the DVD Extras of “Bigga Than Ben” – the German Edition. Enjoy!

… More?

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!

‘Dorian Gray’ & ‘Bigga than Ben’ US Release

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.

‘Premiere’ scans & interview, Dorian Gray

Good morning everyone!

First off, thanks to the amazing beckytheelf for donating these scans and translating the interview for BBF!

PREMIÈRE: Ben, are you ready to join the church of Scientology or to study Kabbalah?

Ben Barnes: Mmm…no. Definitely not. Scientology scares me. But if it allows you to have a wife like Katie Holmes, I can understand why some find arguments about it. Not me.

PREMIÈRE: Are you ready to go out with Scarlett Johansson?

Ben Barnes: Only her or are you giving me the choice between all the young actresses? Because I’m ready to attend to some fully.


The interview can be found at our brand new Press Archive.
What is the press archive for, you may ask? It is where all Ben related interviews, articles, etc will be stored. Make sure to add it to your bookmarks!

‘Dorian Gray’ update
It’s good to see I am not the only one extremely excited about this project (being an English major student I can’t help but love Oscar Wilde). Finally, more information on this project has become available like for example this first picture featuring Ben and Colin Firth (who plays Lord Henry Wooton):

As previously announced, Oliver Parker-directed “Dorian Gray” toplines Ben Barnes as Dorian Gray and also stars Colin Firth. Ealing’s Barnaby Thompson produces.

Other cast members announced Aug. 7 are Ben Chaplin, Emilia Fox, Rachel Hurd-Wood, Fiona Shaw, Maryam D’Abo, Pip Torrens, Douglas Henshall, Caroline Goodall, Michael Culkin, Johnny Harris and newcomer Max Irons, son of Jeremy Irons. Source

Therefore, the IMDB Profile page for the film has been updated with the names the rest of the cast.

On a sidenote, Ben was photographed backstage at the opening night performance of Britain’s Got Talent winner George Sampson two days ago. I’m currently working on getting the pictures untagged, so expect an update soon!
