I think Emma has a career in modeling…and maybe law! Her skills don’t seem to fit the silver screen. But she may prove me wrong.

Rupert does quality films: That statement was based on the content of the paragraph you didn’t read. The people behind the two non hp films he’s doing next year represent a quality in cinema that a lot of young actors can only dream of. I told you to read the imdb page, Sonja.

Driving Lessons, Cherrybomb, and Wild Target all have big name successful actors, some have big directors, and all have renowned writers. That what I would call quality films.

I haven’t seen a good made for TV movie since the ’60’s’ miniseries. I hope Rupert never does one.

I hope Dan sticks to theater. He wows me there.

Rupert gets reviews indicating his talent is “woefully underused”. That’s enough proof right there that he does quality work. And he’s the only HP person with three films coming out in 2009. And after that, he’ll have the same about of films as Dan.

This is not a competition. I think they both are amazing young men to be sure. But I’m trying to prove that the anti-Rupert bias is unfounded and not based in any rational piece of opinion.

Eruditewitch, funny, you seem to think that your opinion of what they should all do is something solid. It’s not. And your dismissal of tv films is strange. Have you not seen Boy A, The Girl in the Cafe and the Elizabeth 2 parter that Mirren did? These are prime examples. You really should go back to the 60s and stay there if you can dismiss a whole medium so easily. And i’d love to see rupert move into tv, just to annoy your narrow mind.

I’m talking about the miniseries entitled “The 60’s”. It had Julia Stiles. I can’t really go back there, my mother was still a baby.

I hated The Girl in the Cafe and the Elizabeth movie. I’m from America. I think the only good movies that are on TV are ones done by premium channels, but those aren’t technically made for tv because they are subscription based. IE “Empire Falls”

My opinion is solid, I back it up with rational explanations.

I think that all mediums are promising. And chances are, Rupert may do a tv movie, because it seems to me (at least from my observation from the US), that in Britain, you can easily move from tv to movies and back without it having a stigma.

Whereas, here in the US (again just from my observation, and I’m not trying to say it’s fact), you are labeled as a movie actor, a tv actor, etc.

Many times, tv actors "move up’ to movies, ex. Micheal J. Fox, or film actors “move down” to tv, ex. Keifer Sutherland (which was a great move for him, right?) Movie actors might do a cable movie, or something special for tv (especially if say, Oprah produced it), but usually you stay in your place. (Unless you are Steve Carell….sp?)

Anyway, back to the issue at hand. And sticking strictly to Rupert. You can dislike his looks, you can dislike his acting, but I never understood the need of some folks (cause it’s always the same folks), to harp on him.

Like, it’s your mission or it’s your job. I once read somewhere that someone got off on talking smack about him, cause they knew that it would upset his fans. What does that say about that person? They don’t have anything else better to do.

sigh

I suppose, when news post here that I’m not interested in, I just don’t open it. But, that’s just me.

But, like I said before. They are ALL doing good things. And as for Rupert, I DEFINITELY think he has a promising career ahead of him if he wants it.

And to the Rupert fans, I suppose the bright side to all of the negativity is that you have to take the good with the bad, and it shows interest in him, even though it’s negative interest….shrugs

As for the naysayers (not the ones who just don’t like him, but the ones who make it their mission to dog him at every turn, even when the news is good…) I honestly hope that he has a long career so that you can continue to have something to do…. :)

And that entitles you to be snob, erudite? Perhaps you haven’t realised that being an actor requires versatility, in acting and medium. Unless of course you think rupert would be arrogant enough to turn down a very good role just because it is for tv?

Didn’t you just read Ajwc1’s post, Miriam, or are you still ignoring what posts actually say in order to stir up trouble?

In America, it’s a terrible thing for actors to be in a TV movie once they’ve done films. It does not help the career and they are never good.

“Driving Lessons, Cherrybomb, and Wild Target all have big name successful actors, some have big directors, and all have renowned writers. That what I would call quality films.”

Well, Eruditewitch, a dozen of “quality” actors does not necessarily make a quality movie

And you still haven´t anwersed my question: What if Rupert does a “low-quality” tv movie???

“And i’d love to see rupert move into tv, just to annoy your narrow mind.”

Miriam..well said

If Rupert does a bad movie, then my faith in him as an actor will be severely diminished.

But considering he’s not a bad actor and seems to make very wise choices…I strongly doubt that.

good writers and good directors MAKE a quality film. Most of the time good actors do too. And Jim Nesbitt, Emily Blunt, and Bill Nighy are definitely top quality.

“If Rupert does a bad movie, then my faith in him as an actor will be severely diminished.”

What a “lovely” fan you are…No you see a real fan sticks with their favourite actors/actress NO matter what happend….

You know what, I really really feel sorry for Rupert for having so called “fans” like you.

I want to ask other Rupert fans: "will you dismise (spell) him if his does a “low-quality” tv movie?

Now you’re just being mean. I think Rupert is too good for a bad movie. Him doing a bad movie means he’s not as good of an actor as I thought he was. A good fan encourages them to be great. If you were sticking with Rupert even if he was talented, then you are a fan for other reasons.

I honestly think you are just here to start something.

Edit:

If you’re sticking with Rupert even if he WASN’T talented, then you are a fan for other reasons and that’s a bit shallow.

I’m extremely disappointed with fans who has to bring up others into a topic that does not concern them. It’s annoying that people fight over little things that may not be important in the next years to come. And, I’m extremely angry with people expressing bias opinions and predicting the future when they do not know it certainly.
