Jonathan Rhys Meyers has a busy few months coming up.
In addition to saying goodbye to his popular Showtime series “The Tudors,” which begins airing its fourth and final season in January, the Irish actor will also premiere his film with John Travolta, “From Paris With Love,” and begin shooting another project with Kevin Bacon in Belfast.
“From Paris With Love” is a spy caper set in France, and it opens on February 5. Check out the trailer here. It looks pretty interesting.
Meanwhile, JRM will try his hand at comedy with Bacon in a project called “Whole Lotta Sole,” which is due to be filmed in Belfast. According to “Entertainment Tonight,” JRM plays a thief who tries to rob a fish market, resulting in the taking of Bacon’s character as hostage. Irishman Terry George is a co-writer of the script.
“It's very exciting to have one of the best young actors today, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, teamed up with one of the greats, Kevin Bacon,” says the director, Jay Russell.
Rhys Meyers and his on-off girlfriend, Reena Hammer, also did their bit for the environment last week by attending the annual Rainforest Project in London hosted by Prince Charles.
