He's an extremely good actor and might do very well. At the age of 27 he was terrific as Falstaff for the Public Theater. Also, he played Anthony in A&C for the RSC. Don't knock it if you haven't seen it.Only going 'anon' since google is too boring to set up.
I guess we just learned that Stacy Keach finds google too boring to set up.
Yes, Keach is a good actor. But once you've seen Sir Ian, you'll never see another Lear as good. He is "every inch of a king." If you know what I mean.
Must plug!Slings & Arrows, a Canadian teevee series based on the well-known Sratford Shakespearean festival: their third and final season they do King Lear, and it's amazing to see. Do watch if you haven't and you like Shakespeare and theatre. - PonyPal Liquidps - I'm really sorry to geek out here, but it is *Antony* and Cleopatra.
D'oh!That should read 'Stratford'.
Of course you're right Liquid. I'm afraid I allowed indignation to get the better of me. Stupid, I know. I was in the Henry IV and Keach was very good indeed. Couldn't watch the McKellan version: too old-fashioned. They somehow managed to make the play look bad. But I hear the series about Stratford is very funny.
