Podcast: Tom Talks Cruel Intentions


Podcast Like It's 1999


Phil Iscove, creator of Sleepy Hollow and current writer for ABC drama Station 19, created a podcast that covers the abundance of excellent movies released in 1999. Each week, Phil and his co-host Kenny chat with guests about a movie of the guest's choice from that year. Tom skyped in for a nice long conversation about the movie Cruel Intentions, starring Reese Witherspoon, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Phillipe and Selma Blair. You can find the podcast on iTunes or wherever you normally get your podcasts (don't forget to leave a review!) or use this link

NOTE: Tom stresses early on in the podcast that he finds this movie pretty problematic and did not actually choose it.

The Way of the World: Final Performances Today



Today marks the final two performances of the Donmar Warehouse's The Way of the World, and we say goodbye to Tom's wicked Fainall. The play was so well received, with many marveling that the cast was able to make a restoration comedy, with its maze of relationships, plot twists and complicated language, such a delight. Congratulations to the cast and the director, James Macdonald, for a job well done!

The Way of the World: Performances Resume

The Donmar Warehouse announced today that performances will resume for their production of William Congreve's The Way of the World, and they will finish out the planned run through May 26th.

The theater went dark for a week following the sad announcement that the very talented and much loved Alex Beckett had passed away. The Donmar has posted the following statement on its website:


In mid-April, we were deeply shocked and saddened by the tragic loss of our dear friend and actor, Alex Beckett.

Alex was a much-loved member of The Way of the World cast, playing Waitwell, and began his career in Hotel in Amsterdam at the Donmar. He was a friend, an inspiration and a shining talent.

Together, we and the company dedicate this joyful production to the memory of this brilliant, funny and gifted man.


Robin Pearce is stepping into the role, having played Waitwell in the 2012 Chichester Theatre's production of the play.

Sending love and support to the company for tonight and the rest of the run. You will undoubtedly make Alex proud.
