Matthew Macfadyen Meets Topix Fans in New York!

There are 17 comments on the www.topix.net story from Aug 7, 2007, titled Matthew Macfadyen Meets Topix Fans in New York!. In it, www.topix.net reports that:

Matthew Macfadyen, fresh off a triumphant 8 week run of his starring role in London's Royal Court Theatre production of "The Pain and the Itch" by Bruce Norris, comes to New York City on Tuesday evening August 7, 2007 to view the theater production of Frost/Nixon. Matthew is to portray John Birt, Frost's producer in the film adaptation of the theater production, directed by Ron Howard.

While on his "working holiday" Matthew, looking incredibly handsome, was accompained by Ron Howard as they entered the Bernard B. Jacobs Theater. They were greeted by gleeful TOPIX Matthew fans Mojo, Kathy CT, Andie and JenNYC. Matthew signed autographs and posed graciously for photographs with them!

Imagine Entertainment Chief and famed actor, director and producer Ron Howard won much sought after rights to produce and direct the movie adaptation of Frost/Nixon which will commence filming at the end of August 2007. Other actors joining Matthew are Frank Langella and Michael Sheen reprising their critically acclaimed roles for the small screen as well as Kevin Bacon, Sam Rockwell and Toby Jones among others.

Frost/Nixon, written by Peter Morgan and directed by Tony® Award nominee Michael Grandage, is now in its final two week run at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre (242 West 45th Street). Starring three-time Tony® Award winner Frank Langella as President Richard Nixon and Michael Sheen (The Queen) as Sir David Frost, the production will play its final performance on Sunday, August 19 to begin filming on the Frost/Nixon movie.

The stage production transferred to London’s West End following a sold-out run at the Donmar Warehouse. Before Broadway, the production played at the Gielgud Theatre through February 3, 2007.

More to come...stay tuned!;)

Thanks Anna for alerting us all and a special thank you to Matthew for being so gracious!

Thank God you were there, Andie. We needed your boldness, and your attractiveness was certainly an asset! We each had our own little contribution that helped to keep the encounters going without getting too intrusive. It was a tough line to walk: interested but not prying, admiring but not too gushy, joking a bit flirtaceously(sp?)(Andie...the fountain comment, Jen...the being his NY guide offer, Mojo... the e-mail offer) but not crudely, going up to him but not "stalking" (OK, there was a little stalking). And we were good...we didn't try to hug him or get a piece of his hair or something! LOL.

Mojo said something like " I can give you my e-mail address" in response to something he or we said ... I can't remember exactly... and we all just chuckled as he politely shook his head or made a slight comment communicating that wouldn't be necessary.

Kathy, what a fantastic article.
I'm with Andie...."Yippeeee, I'm in Topix News!!

Funny, I just wrote about the e-mail comment in another thread!
Andie offered us all up to him, as escorts to various fountains around the city, if I remember correctly. That's when I said, he might want to get our e-mail addresses to set this up and he politely declined the offer...damn!!

Tell me when this thread is updated:
