Re: Black Mass

To be honest I think that rumour was made up, too...what Mark Gatiss would refer to as "click bait"!!
Back to the Movie though - I wonder what his accent will be like in this?
I hope it's well received !

Re: Black Mass

(I disagree, but I shouldn't be talking about it anywhere on the board!)
Looking forward to the film!

Re: Black Mass

Well I would prefer his part to be a big one, but as long as he's doing what he loves I'm happy! 

I can actually see a bit of him in that picture, but I'd hate for him to put on weight, not that I should judge or anything... but the strict diet he would have to go on to continue his other projects would scare me a bit! 

I can't wait to see pictures from the set, and to watch this film in the future!

Re: Black Mass

Wiki entry for William (Billy) Budger:

  wrote:

William Bulger's role in his brother's escape from authorities is a matter of some dispute. On June 19, 2003, he testified to a House of Representatives committee about an incident in which, while still President of the Massachusetts State Senate, he "went to an arranged location in 1995 to take a call from his fugitive brother, apparently to avoid electronic eavesdropping. He said that accepting the call from the gangster without bothering to inform the FBI was 'in no way inconsistent with my devotion to my own responsibilities, my public responsibilities.'"[7]During the hearing, when asked what he thought James (Whitey) did for a living, William Bulger said:
[quote888]I had the feeling that he was in the business of gaming and... whatever. It was vague to me but I didn't think, for a long while he had some jobs but ultimately it was clear that he was not being, you know, he wasn't doing what I'd like him to do.[7][/quote888]
He added that he loves his brother and hopes that the most brutal rumors concerning him will be proven false. As fallout from these remarks, he was forced out by then-Governor of Massachusetts Mitt Romney from his position as president of the University of Massachusetts in 2003.Bulger also testified that the FBI never asked if he knew of Whitey's location. Those remarks were disputed by a former FBI agent who claimed Bulger declined to submit to an interview with the bureau.[8] Months later, the committee report found Bulger's testimony "inconsistent" about whether the FBI had contacted him in its search for his fugitive brother.[8]Upon Whitey's arrest in California in June 2011, William Bulger issued a statement expressing his "sympathies to the families hurt" in the case, and asking for privacy for his family.[9]

Re: Black Mass

As for me, I'm super psyched that they are filming this in Boston - where I am!!!.  I will be on the look-out constantly
The Bulger story has been and continues to be HUGE news around these parts.

Hey Susi, wouldn't it be funny if after going to London hoping to catch a glimpse of lovely Ben, I run into him here in Boston. LOL!

Re: Black Mass

Yikes!  One of our local newscasters mentioned on the news tonight that an A list actor had joined the cast of "Black Mass" - Benedict Cumberpatch.  OMG! 
I tweeted her and said it was Cumberbatch with a "B" and reminded her to be careful because he has a lot of fans out here.  She tweeted me back an apology and said she didn't know why she kept saying it with a "p" and that she promised never do it again.
I tweeted back and told her she was forgiven - as long as she let's us know where he's spotted around town.

I'm beginning to wonder if he will actually come to Boston for filming. If most of his stuff is interior work there may be no need to be here.  Oh well, I'll keep my ear to the ground; in fact, I just emailed a Cumberwatch type person to see he/she knew if Ben would do any filming in Boston. 

Interesting that he's going to play Billy.  Billy was/is sort of a patrician Boston politician with a Boston partrician accent who probably worked hard to drop the South Boston working class accent so he could disassociate himself from his roots.  He sounds rather a Mycroft type when I've heard him speak. I'm sure Ben will do a great job pulling this character off.

Re: Black Mass

And there could be some good brother-to-brother scenes depending on their relationship. I read that he had to resign his office as president of the University of Massachusetts because he phoned his brother while he was hunted by the FBI and did not tell the authorities.

Re: Black Mass

It's the kind of film that I'd probably watch even if Benedict wasn't in it, though not necessarily at the cinema.
The only thing is, I don't think Johnny's films have been that great lately, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed for this!

Re: Black Mass

But the director of the film should give us reason to be quite optimistic that it will turn out rather good.
