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 Supports the Project

Jeremy Irons has lent his support to the Project.

from the blog post:

“The incomparable Jeremy Irons has also given us his full support. We haven’t yet had the privilege of meeting him, but we’ve been in constant contact with his lovely assistant …who has been filling Jeremy in on our progress. Just a few days ago, Jeremy told us that we had his full support in making “Clovis Dardentor” and following through on the BUYACREDIT.COM project.

It’s an unbeatable feeling to know that such BIG stars back us in what we’re doing. Jude Law, Sir Ian McKellen, Jeremy Irons, Whoopi Goldberg, Rowan Atkinson, Stephen Fry, Phillip Schofield, Joanna Lumley… AH, there are too many!”

Read the full blog entry at Project.

The legendary and incomparable Academy Award winning screen and stage actor, Jeremy Irons is a strong supporter of BUYACREDIT.COM and a producer on the film. Jeremy has been a source of behind-the-scenes support and guidance since early on in the project, and has now given us his full public backing. To have the endorsement of such a revered and respected figure-head in the movie industry is just staggering, and as such, there are no words that can aptly or deservedly describe how we feel about having him involved.

BUYACREDIT.COM is a project aiming to raise a movie’s budget by selling its end credits online. For just $10 you can help fund a film, become a Movie Producer alongside some of Hollywood’s biggest names and see your OWN name roll down on the end credits of the movie. Give enough and you could find yourself amongst the Top 100 Producers, an exclusive club that entitles you to a truck-load of awesome perks. Alternatively, for $100 you can take full advantage of BUYACREDIT.COM by advertising your website on our Pixel-Ad Wall. Every cent raised goes towards the movie’s $2 Million budget.

The movie is “Clovis Dardentor” (IMDB), a film based on a forgotten novel of the same name by the legendary author, Jules Verne. We have turned to the public to help us raise its budget. Through BUYACREDIT.COM we are asking anyone and everyone to become movie producers and to help fund the film.

Because the public are indeed, the movie’s producers, we are keeping the production of “Clovis Dardentor” open. You will be able to keep up to date through the blog, Twitter, newsletters and our regular video blogs. Our aim is to immerse our supporters in every single aspect of the project and the movie’s production, whilst also encouraging our producers to have their say on how things are done. We are essentially creating a real-time ‘Making Of’ for all to see.

Jeremy Irons to be a presenter at Awards

Cat Stars, Sister & Rat Pack Launch WOS Awards
Date: 3 November 2009

Just days after their London opening in the transatlantic transfer of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Broadway stars James Earl Jones, Phylicia Rashad and Sanaa Lathan will help launch one of the biggest events in the West End: the TENTH ANNUAL Awards, the “theatregoers’ choice”. This year’s glitzy launch party, at which all of the artists and shows in the 2010 awards running will be revealed, is held at Cafe de Paris, at lunchtime on Friday 4 December 2009.

The three Broadway stars, who have a collection of Tony Awards and other US accolades between them, will be our special guest co-presenters, reading the shortlists for the shortlists of nominations across the 20+ awards categories. The 2010 Awards cover the 2009 theatregoing year, running from 1 December 2008 to 30 November 2009. (As Cat on a Hot Tin Roof opens on 1 December 2009, the three actors and their production will be considered as part of the 2011 Awards.)

The Americans will be joined by British stage and screen legend Jeremy Irons, presenting on behalf of this year’s adopted charity, Theatre Royal Haymarket Masterclass, which gives young people the chance to learn from and be inspired by leading artists (See News, 29 Sep 2009).

There will also be three live musical performances. Patina Miller, who won rave reviews earlier this year for stepping into Whoopi Goldberg’s shoes as Deloris von Cartier in blockbuster screen-to-stage hit Sister Act at the London Palladium, will prove why she’s “Fabulous, Baby” in the show. And the ever-smooth Frank, Sammy and Dean from Christmas with The Rat Pack at the Adelphi Theatre will get guests in the festive mood with some croon-worthy seasonal classics.

Last but not least, in honour of the tenth anniversary of the Awards, the stars of satirical musical comedy hit Jest End, which returns this month for a five-week season at Jermyn Street Theatre, will perform a special celebratory medley.

Top (l-r): Patina Miller in Sister Act; Jeremy Irons; Bottom (l-r): Cat on a Hot Tin Roof’s James Earl Jones, Phylicia Rashad and Sanaa Lathan with co-star Adrian Lester; Jest End; and Christmas with The Rat Pack.

Charity, voting & sponsors

The nominations phase of the 2010 Awards has now opened – click here to nominate your favourite shows and artists! After the launch party, the race is on to decide the eventual Award winners, with voting on the shortlists opening on Monday 7 December 2009 and continuing until the end of January. Results are announced and awards presented in front of a live audience of theatregoer voters at our Winners’ Concert on Sunday 14 February 2010 at the West End’s Prince of Wales Theatre.

Both Awards events are held in aid of this year’s adopted charity, Theatre Royal Haymarket Masterclass, which gives young people the chance to learn from and be inspired by leading artists (See News, 29 Sep 2009). Set up by the Theatre Royal Haymarket in 1998, the hugely successful Masterclass programme has now welcomed over 40,000 people aged 17-30. Events are given free of charge and occur at least one Friday a month throughout the year, focusing on all aspects of theatre from acting and directing to writing and producing.

Though Masterclass events are designed for those at the start of their careers, theatregoers and others, of whatever age, are also welcome. The Masterclass Benefactors scheme (priced £55 per annum) has been set up for this purpose. It includes: access to over 12 events a year, an annual friends’ party and special ticket offers for Theatre Royal Haymarket productions. Details can be found at

For more information on the charity and our corporate sponsors in relation to the Awards, please visit our awards microsite later this week. For the first time this year, we’re also making a limited number of sponsorship packages available to individuals. For information on theatregoers’ packages, click here.




The View recap

[On The View’s official website, they put “Jeffery” instead of “Jeremy”, so I’ve made the corrections.]

Wednesday, Apr. 22

Today, the ladies celebrated Sherri’s birthday! It all kicked off with a great giveaway of tickets to a screening of Earth. FYI: For every ticket purchased during opening week, Disneynature will plant a tree in Brazil’s Atlantic Forest — which is considered the most endangered rain forest in the world.

The first guest was Jeremy Irons, an actor who’s captivated audiences on the big screen — and now on stage in Impressionism. After Jeremy told audiences about what you can expect to see in the play, we watched a clip of The Lion King — for which both Jeremy and our Whoopi provided voices. Jeremy has won an Academy Award, a Tony award, a Screen Actors Guild award, two Emmy awards, and two Golden Globes for his work! You can see Jeremy in Impressionism at the Schoenfeld Theater in New York City. Everyone went home with a pair of tickets for the show …

Since it was Sherri’s birthday, The View challenged the award-winning cake artists from Food Challenge Network Challenge: Last Cake Standing to make their best creations in her honor! The host of Last Cake Standing, Keegan Gerhard, was here to introduce us to the contestants — and to help chose the winner. All three contestants did a wonderful job, and then Sherri chose her favorite. Be sure to watch Last Cake Standing this Sunday night to see the crowning of the winner!

Sherri’s birthday wish came true when the Clarke Sisters stopped by to perform “Higher Ground” from the new gospel all-star tribute Oh Happy Day — as well as their classic hit “You Brought The Sunshine.” Everyone in our audience took home a copy of Oh Happy Day and the group’s latest CD, The Clark Sisters Live&One Last Time!
