the prestige

August 31st, 2006


I’m still waiting for someone — anyone — to explain his creepy role as “Phillip Jeffries” in Fire Walk With Me, but nonetheless David Bowie continues to show up in interesting sounding movies:

David Bowie will join the Christopher Nolan-directed “The Prestige,” the Touchstone Pictures/Warner Bros. drama that stars Hugh Jackman, Christian Bale and Michael Caine… Here he’ll play inventor and electrical wizard Nikola Tesla, who is approached by one of two competing magicians for help in pulling off the ultimate magic trick in 1878.

  1. David Bowie does what David Bowie wants. He’s like a Christopher Walken with a singing career. “Though I’m and excellent hoofer,” Says Walken.
