Subject: Branagh's Hamlet
Skimming through a list of fall and early-winter movie openings, I found the
names of Billy Crystal and Robin Williams in the cast of Branagh's Hamlet.
Perhaps this is old news.
But I must confess I literally howled when I read it. At any rate, I reserve
judgment. Does anyone know the actual roles they'll be playing? (I could see
Robin Williams as the grave-digger...) I hope it won't turn out like Keanu
Reeves and Michael Keaton in Much Ado. However, I was heartened to find
Charlton Heston in the cast too. That should be interesting. But no Thompson.
