Re: The Current War

So The Current War will be filmed in England (not very surprising with regard to Benedict's growing family). In case anyone is interested, they are looking for extras:

Re: The Current War

I'd love to be an extra, how much fun would that be! Wonder how long it would take me to commute up from London hehe.

Re: The Current War

I am ready (even though I'm not an Edison fan)! I'm a little confused by the article, though...I thought The Current War was about the rivalry between Edison and Tesla, not Edison and Westinghouse.  I guess I misinterpreted something, or maybe the script is different?

Re: The Current War

I thought the same as you, Yitzock... but then again, isn't that how it always is when you hear something about Edison or Tesla?

Re: The Current War

Yes, I suppose that's what my mind jumps to. I guess it's possible Tesla might still appear.

Re: The Current War

The article says Nicholas Hoult will play Tesla.

Re: The Current War

The dispute was indeed between the firms of Edison and Westinghouse:

Re: The Current War

If I'd known he was filming at UCL today I might have gone and had a look! Wonder if he'll be there tomorrow as well.

There are lots of lovely pics of Ben on Twitter from today!

I cannot live without brainwork. What else is there to live for? Stand at the window there. Was there ever such a dreary, dismal, unprofitable world? See how the yellow fog swirls down the street and drifts across the dun-coloured houses. What could be more hopelessly prosaic and material? What is the use of having powers, Doctor, when one has no field upon which to exert them?

Isn't that one of Benedicts super powers?


And to be serious here... I love how much you can tell from his face in one single frame!
