ooh shiny  
From the RSC Shakespeare feed: Ben Whishaw is playing Ariel in Julie Taymor's production of The Tempest!

Less pleased about Russell Brand as Trinculo... but if I recall from set photographs, Felicity Jones is Miranda, which makes me happy, because she can clearly do innocent and sympathetic (see Catherine Morland).

I had to go look him up before I could remember where I saw him. He was Sebastian in the "Brideshead Revisited" remake. I'm afraid I don't remember his performance very well; I was too busy being mad at him for not being Anthony Andrews. (Which, I have to admit, was not his fault.)

Heh. If you get a chance to see Bright Star, I recommend it--he plays Keats.

Seconding the recommendation of Bright Star. *SWOON*

I definitely need to see it again.
