Vincent Regan

Rupert Grint

Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard may have their own Macbeth in the works, but all the acting talent in the world can’t replace the box office dynamite that is Ron Weasley. Rupert Grint, the actor who will likely spend the rest of his life in the shadow  Harry Potter has just been cast in Enemy of Man, a reworking of one of William Shakespeare’s most enduring plays. While we don’t know whom Grint will be playing, we do know that Charles Dance has been cast alongside him. You may know Dance via his Game of Thrones character, Tywin Lannister. Factor in that Sean Bean (who also had a stint on Game of Thrones) will be playing Macbeth, and things are setting up nicely for a little fantasy series face-off. Unless all three actors happen to be on the same side, at which point it might become Potter and Thrones vs X-Men, as Jason Flemying (who played the demonic Azazel in X-Men: First Class) has already been cast as MacDuff.


The Holding begins with a dark action and stumbles its way through thriller territory, making pit stops along the way to undermine itself every time it starts to get gritty. Cassie Naylor (Kierston Wareing) is a tough woman whose farm is struggling, whose teenage daughter Hannah (Skye Lourie) is rebelling, and whose youngest daughter Amy (Maisie Lloyd) is beginning to get curious about everything around her. Even though a friendly old man called Cooper (David Bradley) helps out with the cows and the sewage pump, the holding is still not turning a profit. Bills are piling up, and Cassie’s neighbor Karsten (Terry Stone) is overtly obsessed with buying the land one way or another. That’s when aimless drifter Aden (Vincent Regan) enters the picture. He solves a few problems for Cassie and her young girls but ultimately becomes one himself.
