This is a pleasant surprise. I just hope he plays the leading role because he is certainly a leading man. I just hope they don’t make him play a part/parts that are odd-ball like he played in “Artificial Intelligence ” ( a robot ) . The trouble with those sort of roles is that they don’t really show off his most outstanding asset – which is his FACE ! Of course his acting is excellent; I have never seen him do a bad or wishy-washy or blah job . But a lot of actors are good- the thing is they don’t have his kind of face. Comb his hair right or add a little strand here and there and he’s classic. Not many actors are .
Isn’t there anyone going to join me in these comments ? Come -on -lets have some fun.

I am overjoyed at the news of a Jude-Sascha team up! What glorious fun! Jude should consider more comedy- he makes me laugh. Hey, STELLA! you’re right, why aren’t people commenting? I agree with you that he should be leading man in more movies, but they could shave him bald for all I care. It’s what the man exudes! He’s animated and alive from the inside out, and I love to watch him be-bop about.
