Greetings!

I just saw on a Spanish newspaper website that a movie about Jane Birkin's life is being made. In case you don't know, she was married with John Barry. And Barry is gonna be a role in the motion picture performed by Ian Hurt.

Here is the link (but it's in Spanish language, sorry!): http://www.elmundo.es/elmundo/2006/05/14/cultura/1147621498.html

So, do you think Hurt is a good choice?

Hurt is only 7 years younger then Barry.
So if he's gonna play John Barry in the 1960's I'd say he's wrong for it.

He's a great actor though, and I could see him as an older John Barry.

Well, although the linked article mentions John, the original post mentions Ian Hurt, not John. I took that as a misprint of Ian Hart, who's 41 now.

I don't really know if he's a good choice.
Like someone said earlier, if he's gonna play Barry in the 60's, i'd imagine a younger actor would be more suitable.

Rather see a movie about John Barry's life than Jane Birkin's life.

Someone please remind me of the Gainsbourg-Birkin-Barry connection. Who dated who and were married to whom first?

Jane was married with John Barry (I think they met while filming "The Knack"), but she left him when she met Serge while filming the film "Slogan" in France in 1968. She later divorced Serge (with whom she has a daughter Charlotte) and then married the French director Jacques Doillon.

A young Peter Sellers would have been perfect to play a 1960's Barry.

Can't think of anyone current who could play him?

How about Michael Giacchino?

For John Barry when he met Jane Birkin: Tom Hiddleston.

Barry met Birkin when she was one of the girls in Barry's musical Passion Flower Hotel (lyrics by Trevor Peacock) along with Francesca Annis and Pauline Collins.

I think John Hurt would be good for older Barry, but since he died a year ago, maybe not.

Ian Hurt? Couldn't find him. Ian Hart? No.

Whoever cast the actor who played Bernard Herrmann in RKO 281 got it wrong, also.
