Hugh Laurie

The more I hear about Brad Bird’s upcoming sci-fi film, ‘Tomorrowland’, formally known as ‘1952’, the more excited I become.  The film already landed George Clooney to star, and now it looks like we may have our villain, and I think it’s the best choice possible. The Hollywood Reporter has exclusively learned Hugh Laurie  is in talks to play the film’s villain. As of right now, the whole production is still is shrouded in secrecy, with the only indication of what to expect being that the film will be in the same vein of ‘Close Encounters of the Third Kind’. It makes sense that the film is shrouded in so much secrecy, since it’s written by Damon Lindelof, as many of his films and shows have that air of secrecy around them.

I love the choice of having Hugh Laurie play the villain in the film. He’s one of the finest actors currently working in Hollywood, and he has a presence that few actors can match. After his eight years on TV’s ‘House’, we know he can play a brilliant anti-hero, so I can’t wait to see him go full villain mode in this. Bird seems to be getting a rather strong cast to headline the film, and I can’t wait to learn more about what the film is going to be about. For now though, the thought of having Clooney and Laurie together on screen is something I’m very excited about. ‘Tomorrowland’ is set to open December 19, 2014. Are you excited about ‘Tomorrowland’?
