Law was born in Lewisham, South London, the second child of comprehensive school teachers Margaret Anne (née Heyworth) and Peter Robert Law; his father later became, according to Law, “the youngest headmaster in London”. in 1989, Law got his first television role, in a movie based on the Beatrix Potter children’s book, The Tailor of Gloucester. in 1997, he became more widely known with his role in the Oscar Wilde bio-pic Wilde. Both films were directed by Anthony Minghella. Using computer graphics, footage of the young Olivier was merged into the film, playing Dr. Totenkopf, a mysterious scientific genius and supervillain. He took on another of Caine’s earlier roles in the 2007 film Sleuth, adapted by Nobel Laureate in Literature Harold Pinter, while Caine played the role originated by Sir Laurence Olivier. Again, the critics failed to agree on the merit of Law’s interpretation: London’s Daily Mail found only positive reviews, but The Washington Post felt that the much-anticipated performance was “highly disappointing”. Also in 2007, he encouraged the Friends of the Earth/The Big Ask campaign, asking British Government to take action against climate change.

Contagion: Watch Gwyneth Paltrow Get Sick and Die [Video] Here’s the trailer for Steven Soderbergh’s latest film, Contagion, in which Gwyneth Paltrow plays the Patient Zero of an avian flu epidemic that [SPOILER ALERT] kills a lot of people. Including Gwyneth! No kale juice cleanses or hot stone massages are going to clear up this nasty little bug, no sir. As if that isn’t a selling point already, you get Matt Damon as her “grieving” husband (he’s so good, you almost believe him), Kate Winslet as a recovering Purellaholic, and Marion Cotillard as a sneeze-ballistics expert. And we haven’t even mentioned Jude Law or Morpheus yet! But whatever, the real breakout star of this movie is the bearded doctor who gets to say, “Your wife is dead.” That guy is about to become the most popular man on the planet. Congrats, dude! You made it. [via NYM] More » [link]
