Matthew MacFadyen

If I wasn't already super excited about the upcoming Robin Hood movie starring Russel Crowe and Cate Blanchett, I am rumor has it Matthew MacFadyen has been cast as the Sheriff of Nottingham. Oh, he would be so good! :) He's one of those actors that can pull off everything from sweet and sympathetic (Little Dorrit)
to proud and disagreeable (Pride and Prejudice)
to a lazy spoiled mama's boy (The Way We Live Now)
I'm confident he would make a brilliant Sheriff of Nottingham. :) Can't wait. And I can't wait to see him in Medieval costume. I think it's funny how all these period drama men seem to make their way into being Robin Hood villains. Richard Armitage, Toby Stephens, and now Matthew MacFadyen. haha I guess it's every boys dream to play the bad guy at some point? :)
Anyway...I'm super excited and can't wait.


  1. Ahh...YES!!! Although I hate to see "Mr. Puppy Dog Eyes" (as we call him) play a bad dude, I'm so glad to have him in there!

    And lol about those Robin Hood villians! (BTW, I'm hoping that Richard gets out of that show - which needs to end, anyway. No season 4, please! - and does a new period drama - he is just fab! :)

  2. EEEEEKKK! I am super excited!!

  3. I'm a little beside myself... love this guy. The perfect reason to watch this new version when it's release as I was a little curious who they would co-star with Russ. Happy now!

  4. ooooooh... That's kinda funnie! I liked him a lot in Little Dorret...that's kinda weird! But you know me! I'm an Aimee



Although I continually talk about movie costumes on this blog, I am not a movie reviewer. Not all the films I discuss are recommended and I do not choose to review weather they are appropriate or not for the simple fact that every person's standards are different. Something that is fine for me may be offensive to some one else and visa versa. If you would like to look into the appropriateness of a title, I recommend I have not seen all the movies I discuss, and am simply interested in the art of clothes in film. I will leave you to decide for yourself if you will watch the movie or not.
