Jonathan Rhys Meyers already played one of the most iconic fictional rock stars of all time in 1998’s Velvet Goldmine when he portrayed a mash-up of David Bowie, T. Rex’s Marc Bolan and gender-bending 1970s singer Jobraith. Now, in the upcoming feature London Town, he gets to dig in for real as The Clash leader Joe Strummer.
Rhys Meyers is captivating as Strummer, capturing the late Clash singer’s manic stage energy and in-your-face urgency as part of a cast that also includes Dougray Scott and Natascha McElhone.

Before the release of Roots in the US 3 new stills of Jonnys character have been added to the gallery in lovely high quality. I’m still hoping the ones already uploaded can be replaced but until then, enjoy!

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!

Whilst there is a bit of a quiet spell I am updating the gallery with missing files and also replacing current ones such as events and projects with better quality versions. The first of the batch is back from 2008 where Jonny was unveiled as the Hope Foundation’s Ambassador

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
