Here’s what the Jouberts had to say about Jeremy Irons as their narrator:

What does Jeremy Irons bring to “Game of Lions” as narrator? 
More than you would imagine. He brings a perfection and voice, obviously, but he reads the script with such authority that it reeks of credibility, and so it should. Jeremy has been a friend and collaborator for 12 years now, on seven films. So he understands every sentence and the behavior that is being described. If he does not understand what I have written, we stop, I convince him that it is correct or we change it. We have come to know Jeremy as a man of such professional integrity and character and personal mettle that very few have.

Jeremy Irons had stepped outside the Golden Globes show and was preparing himself a hand-rolled cigarette when he stopped in mid-roll and pocketed his tobacco.

“Wait, I want to see Jodie,” he said.

He rushed back inside the ballroom in time to see Jodie Foster accept the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement from Robert Downey, Jr.

Jeremy Irons Nominated for a 2012 Golden Globe Award

Jeremy Irons has been nominated for a Golden Globe award, for his role in The Borgias.  Here is his category and the competition:

BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR IN A TELEVISION SERIES – DRAMA
a. STEVE BUSCEMI BOARDWALK EMPIRE
b. BRYAN CRANSTON BREAKING BAD
c. KELSEY GRAMMER BOSS
d. JEREMY IRONS THE BORGIAS
e. DAMIAN LEWIS HOMELAND

——————————————————————————————–

Jeremy’s reaction to being nominated:

“I am delighted to be nominated for my work in Neil Jordan’s The Borgias. In truth I know it reflects the tireless efforts and exceptional talents of all those who bring this splendid series to the screen. Without the magnificent work in the costume and set design, script writing, lighting and camera work, and the constant care in the direction , production, and marketing, this series would not have grabbed its audience as it appears to have done. That I am surrounded by a talented and dedicated cast is self-evident. But, of course, if you want to nominate anyone, and escape with your life, then you’d better first nominate the Pope.”

Jeremy Irons, “The Borgias”

Best Actor in a Television Series, Drama

Jeremy Irons Defends Alfred Stieglitz, Applauds Joan Allen

The Hollywood Exclusive: Jeremy Irons Defends Alfred Stieglitz, Applauds Joan Allen

by Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith

Jeremy Irons, who plays the world-renowned photographer Alfred Stieglitz in Lifetime’s Sept. 19-debuting “Georgia O’Keeffe,” comes to the defense of the man with whom O’Keefe engaged in a turbulent 20-year relationship.

The Oscar, Emmy and Tony-award-winning actor declares, “Stieglitz was difficult, but forgivable. O’Keeffe loved him until the day he died. I do think creative people like she need a partner who excites them deeply, and that person does not have to be the easiest to live with. I wonder if she would have become a great artist without him. Sometimes we need a thorn to make us realize our greatness.”

Irons continues, “Granted, Stieglitz was difficult to live with. He had a record of picking talent for his art gallery and controlling them until it got so bad, they moved on. Georgia had to go to New Mexico to get away from him, but she never stopped loving him.”

Irons has nothing but kudos for his leading lady. “Joan Allen was born to play Georgia O’Keeffe,” he says. And, he adds, the story of O’Keeffe and Stieglitz was born to be made. He just can’t understand why it took so long to make it.

“It was shopped around for about seven or eight years as a motion picture and could never find a taker,” he reveals. And then, he notes, “It was offered to HBO and they turned it down. That was a shame. It was a big mistake. I must tell you, when I saw the completed film, I was thrilled.”
