Lol, that is not Ben Barnes – that’s his co-star from Killing Bono, Robert Sheehan. Sad times, I saw the picture and got excited that Rob was attached to the project!

Just pointing out that your picture of Ben Barnes is not Ben Barnes.
It’s his co-star from Killing Bono, Robert Sheehan, who is also in the E4 series Misfits.

It’s Funny, I tought Olivia Wilde was older than Ben Barnes. She looks like she’s 30-35 years old.

Sounds like it’s going to be a good film! Olivia, Bradley, Zoe, Dennis – loving the cast too! :)

When is Olivia going to leave House already? I understand loyalty, but her film career is exploding. I’d rather see her in movies.
