Jude Law in Hamlet -- FIRST LOOK

Jude Law in Hamlet -- FIRST LOOK

Jude Law channels his inner Hamlet and grabs hold of costar Gugu Mbatha-Raw (as Ophelia) in this new still from the stage production of Hamlet at Wyndham’s Theater in London.

Other pictures below include Jude leaving Wyndham’s on Thursday (June 11). Hamlet is playing through Aug. 22 at Wyndham’s Theater.

The NY Times reviews Jude in the show, saying, “Fierce-eyed, charismatic, gestural to a degree one wouldn’t expect from a character who makes a point of advising the Players not to ‘saw the air.’ One can imagine his particular empathy for this play given that London must at times seem for Mr. Law one large Elsinore, the tabloid press shadowing this fine actor’s every move to a degree unknown even at Denmark’s intrigue-laden Kronborg Castle.”

Check out a full review at NYTimes.com. 10+ pics inside…

I don’t know if people know where to find the place to comment after
being directed off the patg and then somewhere else. I had to start
all over again to find it. But now that I am here I must say that I love
jude law for his bravery and courage in tackliing thia role which allows
the actor to define himself and Hamlet according to what he thinks
of the perplexities of Hamlets’ life and goal in avenging his father Besifdes being a showcase for thoughts and brains, Hamlet is a showscase for clear and concise thought (even though it’s couched in the wordsof “to be or Not to be” and other soliliquys of his wavering and questioning thoughts that we all find ourselves applying to the great quetions of life..Yes he has reached that maturity level that allows us to believe he knows whereof he speaks and that speaking is reputed o be quite
unforgettable. I will find out for myself next month and can’t wait to
see Jude, up close and in the flesh, immersed in a role he can be proud of to the greatest extent he has yet experienced in his career.
I love you Jude and say it again for the vaunted performance i am
looking forward to.

Bravissimo to my wonderful, beautiful Jude Law.

Love these pictures of the play and of him! The play sold out long before it opened, but evidently there is a line each morning at the theater for 30 tickets that were reserved for sale each day. Apparently you have to get there pretty early if you want a ticket.
I would love to see this so much.

I’m happy for Jude that things seem to be going so well for him and that his Hamlet has gotten such a wonderful response.

Jude Law is one of the most brilliant actors around. The tabloids hound him so much people forget he truly is a wonderful actor. I would KILL to see him live onstage in Shakespeare’s Hamlet! If you really want to see how great he is, rent a movie called “Road to Perdition.” He places a really creepy guy in it. I was shocked at how good he was. It had Paul Newman, Tom Hanks, Daniel Craig and Stanley Tucci in it, too.

is there amore perfect specimen? everything about jude is perfection….that lovely face…the slim sexy body. how ca ybody this cool be that hot? aside from which he’s an academy and tony award nominated actor. he’s the most responsible father in the world and he’s extremely bright…very well read and if you see him give interviews his vocabularly is amazing……..everything is coming together for this lovely man with this production of hamlet…..bravo sweet jude.

Not to make to much of a big point out of this but…I’m so excited that Ophelia’s black. I’ve always wanted to play her. Then again it’s not about what you look like, it’s how well you act so kudos to both.

More than just pretty @ 06/12/2009 at 12:00 pm

Jude IS a wonderful talent – I’ve known it all along! And no, he’s never gotten the credit (imo) that he deserves. It’s been too easy for many to dismiss him as a ‘lightweight’ and a ‘pretty boy.’ I’m so happy to see him finally being recognized for his ability.

It’s absolutely spectacular that Jude Law is back in theatre work. This is where it all started out for this fine actor. Jude is very passionate about theatre and looks like his acting is presenting itself in such an excellent way to the audience and critics. GREAT JOB JUDE!!! I’m very proud of you and so is your family and friends.

Jude represents himself in such a positive light with his family and his highly involved work in the PEACE project awareness. Wishing him more success in his career and love life in the future.

Bright Smiles from me to you Jude!!! Sweet News for a Friday morning.

ciao~

I’ve always thought jude Law was an amazing actor. Great he’s proving it again.

No words!!!
Thanks Jared :)

Jude is bringing the sexy to Hamlet !

#13 tams, Jude has never been afraid to mix it up with his leading ladies. Gugu is beautiful.

Love you Jude.

I think it’s wonderful that he’s finally back at stage and also getting great reviews even though I’m not surprised he’s good – he has always been good. That he’s a beautiful person on the inside and the outside too AND a great father just makes him an even more admirable person. I cannot wait to see the play!

Thanks for the pictures Jared. Gugu looks very beautiful and I hope she’s having a blast.

It’s a whole lot of Jude! : D
Love You Jude and believe me it hurts but you make it hurt so good! ♥

I so wish I could see this. I know Jude is brilliant. The whole production! It looks wonderful.
