Mark Rylance: Acclaimed Theater Actor Turned Mainstream Film Actor
Rylance seems to be landing roles in every major movie right now. He may be new to film, but the esteemed actor has an impressive theatrical past.By Lexie Hammesfahr | December 29, 2015
Thanks to some overzealous journalists in France, we now know what Christopher Nolan's next film will be. It's an action film called "Dunkirk," and it's set during the evacuation of the French city during World War II.
And not only did we learn the name of the film, we learned who might join the ensemble cast. Tom Hardy, Kenneth Branagh and Mark Rylance are reportedly in negotiations.
OK. Tom Hardy is a big name. Kenneth Branagh is a multiple-Oscar-nominated actor. But you might not be as familiar with Rylance unless you are a theater buff.
