My friend Kaci pointed me today two clips of ‘Dead Cats’, a film Tom made a while ago and it’s not yet released. I can’t embed the videos here, but you can watch them at the source: ‘Wedding Chat Up’ and ‘Burial’. Also, screen captures has been added in our gallery:
Back in 2010, Tom Mison was part of The Royal Court Theatre play Posh (see pictures). It told the story of a dinner at the Riot Club, an exclusive Oxford undergraduate dining society specialising in debauchery, alcohol-fuelled hedonism and ostentatious displays of wealth. Then, had its title changed to The Riot Club when it was given a big-screen treatment.
They recast the actors from the play, but director Lone Scherfig in an interview explained their decision on the recast, and on keeping one of the original actors.
One person from the original cast is in the film, Tom Mison, who opens the film with his speech for Lord Riot. The play has been staged a few times, but we felt it would do most justice to everyone, completely new actors, to start from scratch.
The film is now available to pre-order on Amazon for a January 19 release date. You can check screen captures of Tom’s scene in our gallery, and while we’re here, check this ‘Posh’ photoshoot behind the scenes video:
Added a few pictures we was missing from events Tom attended in 2014:
Screen captures of 2011 Lasse Hallström film Salmon Fishing in the Yemen has been added to the gallery:
Our gallery was updated with promos, stills and screen captures of 2008 mini-series Lost in Austen:
As you noticed, our website can now be accessed through the domain Tom-Mison.org, which I was webmaster for a few months. My friend Holly decided to let go of the website and I took the domain back, so for now the website can be accessed through Tom-Mison.org as well Tom-Mison.us (this one until expires). I also got back the previous Twitter account, so follow us on @TomMisonOrg.
Added screen captures of latest Sleepy Hollow episode, The Akeda, to the gallery:
Sleepy Hollow will be back in January 5th, 2015 for the final part of the season. You can read on Huffington Post an interview with executive producer Mark Goffman discussing the mid-season finale.
In Washington Irving’s “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow,” Ichabod Crane is described thusly: “His head was small, and flat at top, with huge ears, large green glassy eyes, and a long snipe nose, so that it looked like a weather-cock perched upon his spindle neck to tell which way the wind blew.” Luckily, British actor Tom Mison, who portrays Crane on the hit Fox series Sleepy Hollow, cuts a far more dashing figure. But it’s actually the rich mythology the show’s writers have added to the original Irving plot that is the more drastic—and brilliant—change. Borrowing a page from Rip Van Winkle, they have Crane awake from the dead in modern-day Sleepy Hollow only to find himself immersed in an epic knock-down, drag-out battle between good and evil, pitting demons from the Book of Revelation against America’s righteous founding fathers.
It’s an angle that Mison, a film and theater actor new to the “creative variety” of a serialized fantasy drama, finds exciting. “It’s called the greatest story ever told for a reason. Taking pieces from the Bible means we have a wealth of stories to choose from,” he says from the house he’s renting in Wilmington, North Carolina, where the second season of the series is being shot. “We also have some Native American mythology in there and other legends. With the flashbacks, we’re running out of founding fathers, so we’ve gone to other stories. Our producer, Roberto Orci, jokes that we’re trying to offend as many people as we can.”
Even over the phone, Mison’s wry sense of humor comes through. He’s bemused that, at age 32, his career is all Crane all the time. “I won’t lie; that’s a tough prospect,” he admits. “I didn’t become an actor to do a nine-to-five job. I’m lucky, though, because this is a role with so many different sides. One day I could be Inspector Clouseau, the next I could be Bond, all within the same character.” He also is taking advantage of the move from bustling London to pleasant small-town America, even if “it’s quite a culture shock,” as he puts it. “Everyone’s delightful. You sit out on your porch and people walk past and wave hello.” And does Tom Mison sit on his porch in a rocking chair? “Oh, piss off—I have three,” he laughs. “I’ve gone all-out with my Southern charm.”
The International Press Academy (IPA) announced its nominations for the 19th Annual Satellite™ Awards in the Motion Pictures and Television categories, and Sleepy Hollow was nominated as Television Series, Genre. It shares the category with American Horror Story, Game of Thrones, Grimm, The Leftovers, The Strain and The Walking Dead.
