Timmy Atticus in Red, is dancing for you.
Australians! Are you ready to watch Tim cavorting naked on your telly screens? Well get excited because that’s exactly what’s going to happen! (Of course, if that doesn’t float your boat, it’s also a chance to check out how good he is at pretending to be someone else.)
From Monday 25th November 2013, airing at 10:30pm, Eleven will be showing season 6 of Californication, which features Tim’s silky-smooth acting skills in the role of the washed-up, drugged-up, frequently nude rock ‘n’ roll star Atticus Fetch, as he attempts to turn one of Hank Moody’s books into a Broadway musical. There will be laughs, tears and, of course, songs.
Atticus will feature in the vast majority of episodes, alongside other
rock stars guest actors like Steve Jones from the Sex Pistols and Marilyn Manson from Marilyn Manson, so if you don’t want to miss out on any of his debauched antics, be sure to watch the whole season!
If you haven’t seen the preview clip yet, here it is again to lull you into a a state of excited anticipation:
The cast of the Royal Shakespeare Company’s production of Roald Dahl’s Matilda The Musical will be kicking off the annual BBC Children in Need 2013 Appeal tomorrow night, Friday 15th November from 7:30pm on BBC One with a very special performance.
Viewers will be treated to a marvellous medley of numbers from the show. So if you’ve not yet seen it you can enjoy a fabulous taster of Tim’s music and lyrics. If you have seen it you’ll be able to re-live some of your favourite moments.
Since 1980 Children in Need, the BBC’s UK charity, has raised over £600 million to change the lives of disadvantaged children and young people across the UK. To donate please visit: www.bbc.co.uk/pudsey.
We already let you know, here, that the Broadway production of Matilda The Musical would be releasing its own original cast recording, but that was quite a while ago, so here we are again to tell that you it’s now available to buy in the shops, as well as from various digital retailers.
Apart from the brilliant Broadway cast, it differs from the equally marvellous London Cast Recording in that it includes ‘The Chokey Chant’ as well as all three of the acrobat and the escapologist stories as bonus tracks! (Bertie Carvel and Lauren Ward reprise their West End roles as Miss Trunchbull and Miss Honey).
The Deluxe Edition has yet more bonus tracks: ‘Perhaps a Child’, which had to be cut after the first Stratford-Upon-Avon performance and another version of ‘Naughty’ featuring all four of the original Broadway Matildas: Oona Laurence, Milly Shapiro, Sophia Gennusa and Bailey Ryon. Of course, all tracks can be downloaded individually too, if you simply wish to complete your collection.
For the full tracklist and to preview the songs, simply search for Matilda The Musical on your favourite digital retailer’s site, to yield all the editions available in your country or take a quick look on the iTunes listing at the Matilda the Musical (Deluxe Edition) [Original Broadway Cast Recording].
