First Look At Toby Jones As Alfred Hitchcock in HBO/BBC’s The Girl

One thing positive thing about running  film website/blog it introduces to a whole new world, actors you may have in the past ignored but now the upmost respect for like Toby Jones. I have to selfishly say Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy my admiration for the English actor really kicked off and It should increase when this autumn we’ll see the release of HBO/BBC’s The Girl and we have the first teaser trailer. Jones  portrays the legendary Alfred Hitchcock starring alongside Sienna Miller who plays Tippi Hedren with the drama examining the directors obsession with The Birds actress during the  filming of the film itself. The drama is going to show off a side Hitchcock not many people have seen or in some cases knew about, you could say very dark even sinister side and it looks like Jones may have pulled of a great Hitchcock.

With the The Girl coming out this year this may give the actor the edge this time in similar films, previously he played Truman Capote in Infamous however his great performance was overshadowed by Philip Seymour Hoffman’s Capote, however The Girl’s rival Hitchcock (played by Anthony Hopkins) is not out until 2013. Check out the short teaser below  and watch out for a review of The Girl coming out later this year.
