While I'm on the Subject...

Once Mamma Mia drops and everybody's all over Dominic Cooper's jock, just remember that I SAW HIM FIRST TOO.

Exceptions for those who saw him on stage in The History Boys noted. (I suppose.)

Oh, and speaking of Mama Mia, it has increasingly become my go-to guilty-pleasure-to-be for the summer. The lovely Vance at Tapeworthy pointed me towards this video of Amanda Seyfriend singing "Gimmie Gimmie Gimmie (A Man After Midnight)," and I'm no longer able to dent it. I totally cannot wait for this movie.

Damn straight, we who saw him onstage in History Boys get dibs.

(I hope you've watched the making-of-the-film extras on the HB DVD; there's more Dominic to be seen there.)

I've only seen The History Boys at the movie theater and on HBO, so I haven't. But that's going right the hell on my Netflix queue.

Wow, we're sharing a brain today.

Joe Reid said...

HA! I was just about to post the same on your blog. You ended up with way better pics than I did, though.

JA said...

I hope you notice that if you embiggen the top picture I made it look as if he's checking himself out here and there. Cuz that's how I roll.

And (again) that's why we're friends.

I think he looks like Emile Hirsch in the water photo. Cute.

Also, I've been all about Mamma Mia ever since the trailer broke. Meryl Streep in an Abba musical!? My heart leaps with joy at the thought. Two more globe nods this year for La Streep.

Also, why does the opening to that ABBA song sound EXACTLY like the opening of "Hung Up"? Did Madonna lift that shit?

Jon said...

Yes, Madonna did officially sample "Gimme Gimme Gimme" for "Hung Up." One of the reasons why I like "Hung up" so much. After seeing that video, I now can't wait for "Mamma Mia" to come out.

I saw him before he was in the History Boys in Mark Ravenhill's Mother Clap's Molly House (National Theatre, 2001) where he appeared naked, and as Puck in The Midsummer Night's Dream (Royal Shakespeare Company, 2002)- half naked. I'm araid all you History Boys are latecomers!
