Last night Jonathan attended the premiere for Roots ‘Night One’ in New York held at the Lincoln Center with other cast members. Lots of pictures from the event have been added to the gallery thanks to my friend Emily. It also looks as though due to the drastic change in hairstyle since we saw him last, that he could actually be playing a Viking when Vikings begins filming. Very excited to find out!

The WWII drama from director Harold Zwart tells the true story of Norwegian resistance hero Jan Baalsrud.
Jonathan Rhys Meyers has signed on to co-star in The 12th Man, a drama about the resistance to the Nazi occupation of Norway in World War II. The Tudors star will play German commander Kurt Stage.
The 12th Man is the story of Jan Baalsrud, a Norwegian resistance fighter, one of a dozen saboteurs trained by British intelligence to carry out a raid on an air traffic control tower in the Norwegian city of Bardufoss in 1943. The raid failed, and 11 of the 12 resistance fighters were captured and killed. Only Baalsrud escaped and survived.
TrustNordisk is handling international sales and shopping the project to buyers in Cannes
Whilst promoting Roots at MIPTV in Cannes last month, Jonathan sat down with C21Media to talk about it’s impending release. The interview is so wonderful and I think because they’re so few and far between nowadays it makes them all the more special. Enjoy!
A few days ago, a new trailer to be shown at Cannes Film Festival to prospective buyers was released. Screen captures from it are now available to view in the gallery

Yesterday (edit) Jonny was spotted on the set of Black Butterfly with Antonio Banderas in Subiaco, Rome. In some pictures it appears that he is going over some scenes between takes which I think is super cute. High quality pictures are now in the gallery
