Amanda Seyfried and Jonathan Rhys Meyers join the cast of Albert Nobbs

I always get excited when I hear of an actor or actress that has a pet project that they invest a lot of personal time, energy and money into. So I’m attentively following ALBERT NOBBS, which is nothing short of Glenn Close’s personal project. She’s already starred in the stage version of the short story and apart from starring in the film, she also wrote the script. Today she got good news as Amanda Seyfried and Jonathan Rhys Meyers have joined the cast that already included Close, Michael Gambon, Orlando Bloom and Janet McTeer. Rodrigo Garcia will be directing.
The story is about a woman (Close) forced to disguise herself as a man to survive in 19th century Ireland. Glenn Close has never been beautiful, but it seems like only yesterday she was the sexy seductress in FATAL ATTRACTION and now she’s starring as a woman/man in 19th century Ireland.
