The Good News:
They just cast Prince Caspian and he looks like this:
... rather than this ...
The Bad News:
Apparently the new Caspian, one Ben Barnes, walked out on a professional show he was doing so that he could take the role, leaving his fellows in the lurch.
Ben Barnes abandoned the production this week, telling his fellow actors that he had been offered the title role in The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, Disney’s £50 million sequel to The Lion, The Witch and The WardrobeScore thus far for those of you keeping track at home.
A source close to the production team at Wyndham’s Theatre, where the second revival of The History Boys has been running since December 2006, said: “Ben told everyone that he had been offered a three-film deal to play Caspian. It’s the chance of a lifetime, but the National are furious at him for leaving them in the lurch and are thinking of suing him for breach of contract.”
