New TV project ‘Angelyne’

According to Charlie’s official ARG talent page, he has a new TV project in the works, called ‘Angelyne’. After a Google search, it appears to be a limited mini-series based on the life of Angelyne, an LA billboard diva. You can read more at the Hollywood Reporter.

Angelyne has an official home.

The limited series about the L.A. billboard diva, based on a Hollywood Reporter feature by senior writer Gary Baum, has landed at NBCUniversal’s newly named streaming service, Peacock.

Shameless grad Emmy Rossum and her husband and Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail are teaming with The Hollywood Reporter to adapt Baum’s investigative article about Angelyne, the mysterious billboard icon. Peacock, the ad-supported streamer set to launch in April 2020, has handed out a series order for the drama. The show was rumored in April to land as the streamer’s first original as part of Rossum’s new first-look deal with Universal Content Productions.

Rossum will star as Angelyne, the self-created pop culture icon — whose real name, uncovered in Baum’s August exposé, is Renee Goldberg. Rossum will executive produce via her Composition 8 company alongside Esmail and his UCP-based EsmailCorp banner. Esmail’s manager, Chad Hamilton, will also exec produce via Anonymous Content. The limited series project was shopped to cable and streaming outlets. Baum, who spent months researching Angelyne’s past, will serve as a consultant on the drama. Lucy Tcherniak (The End of the F***ing World) and Allison Miller will also exec produce.

New interview in Fashionbeans

Charlie has been interviewed by Fashionbeans as part of the promo for ‘Rocketman’ (which is out now by the way). You can read the interview at the link and see some new awesome photoshoot images below. Charlie also did a Haul or Nothing for ASOS and you can see a short video of that here.

“He’s a little bit of a joke in the movie”, Charlie admits of his character. “You’re made to feel as if he isn’t up for the task, or he’s this posh kid surrounded by these music talents.” The eyebrows raise, “But I just wanted to portray him as this guy who was into Elton and into his job. I didn’t want Ray to feel like he was a joke.”

Charlie’s role in the film isn’t huge, but Ray Williams plays a pivotal part in Elton’s career – he gave him his big break (in real life too, although the relationship “sort of ended quite badly”). The actor, who grew up in north London, was worried he wouldn’t be in the film at all though.

“I had to go and see it the day before the premiere, because I was so nervous. I didn’t know how much of my part was going to be in it. I hadn’t spoken to Dexter Fletcher (the director) as to whether I was still in it [at all].”
