Colin Firth Will Star in 'The Staircase'; His First TV Role In 25 Years

Colin Firth is headed to television to star in a new HBO Max series.

The Staircase is a limited series is based off the true-crime documentary of the same name, THR reports.

The series will span just eight episodes and will explore the life of novelist Michael Peterson (Firth), his North Carolina family and the suspicious death of his wife, Kathleen.

“It is a thrill to collaborate with Antonio Campos, Maggie Cohn and Annapurna Television for the exploration of this true-life story that’s rife with dramatic revelations,” Sarah Aubrey, HBO Max head of original content, shared in a statement on the project. “With the enormously talented Colin Firth at the center of this adaptation, the story of The Staircase will continue to captivate audiences with every bizarre twist and turn.”

The docuseries aired on Sundance Channel in 2005, and the most recent updates to the case, and second trial, were streamed on Netflix in 2018.

“This has been a project I have been working on in one way or another since 2008,” Antonio, who will also direct a handful of episodes, added. “It’s been a long and winding road, but well worth the wait to be able to find partners like HBO Max, Annapurna, co-showrunner Maggie Cohn and the incredible Colin Firth to dramatize such a complex true-life story.”

The role will mark Colin‘s first television role since 1995′s Pride and Prejudice.

Just recently, Colin can be seen opposite Stanley Tucci in Supernova. Check out the trailer…

Rupert Everett Opens Up About the Time Colin Firth Kissed Him With Tongue

Rupert Everett has worked with Colin Firth on multiple occasions and he’s opening up about something the actor did that left him in shock.

The 61-year-old actor was interviewed on the latest episode of Piers Morgan’s Life Stories show and he talked about his history with Colin.

The actors met while working on the movie Another Country back in 1984, where Rupert says he “fell in love with” Colin.

“Well, I just got a crush on him. I became obsessed by him and we hung out together all the time. And then I realized we were completely different types of people,” Rupert said. This launched a nearly 20-year feud between the actors, which they have since reconciled.

While filming the 2007 comedy St Trinian’s, the guys had a sex scene and Rupert was completely surprised when Colin used tongue while they kissed.

“The weird thing was, I had no idea that Colin was going to tongue me,” Rupert said. He jokingly added, “In the snog. Yeah. Totally going for it. Yeah. I said, Colin, please respect me.”

Rupert added, “Yeah, I was in shock afterwards.”

In an interview last year, Rupert gave an update on a friendship with another very famous friend who he had a falling out with.
