Happy 40 to my boy Matthias Schoenaerts today! I was going to say "funny enough I just re-watched A Bigger Splash this past weekend" but given all the Luca Guadagnino I been living I don't think any of you would be surprised enough to find that funny. (I also watched I Am Love the weekend before. I'm out of control!!!) Aaaanyway Matthias has a heap of projects lined up (because of course he does, as well he should)...
... but the ones I am probably most looking forward to are his re-teaming with his Far From the Madding World director Thomas Vinterberg called Kursk (read about it here) and then the one where he plays a drummer (because that will be hot) opposite his Splash co-star Dakota Johnson. I'd love to see him work with Luca again but they don't seem to have bonded the way Luca bonded with Armie & Timothee on Call Me By Your Name - if you look at pictures from the Splash tour Matthias always looks kind of uncomfortable and off to the side. Hmm.
