Visual Proof that "Game of Thrones" Richard Madden Is Dapper Enough to Play Kenneth Branagh's Prince Charming
Did you hear? Kenneth Branagh has cast Richard Madden -- who plays Rob Stark on "Game of Thrones" -- as his Prince Charming, in a live-action version of Cinderella, paring him with Lily James in the title role and Cate Blanchett as the wicked step-mother. The Internet is already erupting with controversy, with as hundreds of Cinderella purists have taken to message boards to argue that Richard Madden isn't handsome enough, isn't dapper enough, doesn't have the requisite James Marsden-ness.1
I disagree. I think Richard Madden is plenty suited to the role. Take a look at this guy. I mean, COME ON.
He's great with animals!
He looks nice in a suit.
He's got the lip biting thing down cold.
He looks great with a companion.
He's stunning in all black.
If Branagh wants to make a contemporary version, he looks handsome in a flat.
He can even do deadly, when the wicked step-mother gets in his way.
He looks nice in flannel.
He has a great come hither look.
Hell, he even looks good standing next to a naked man.
Let's get a second opinion in here. Matt Damon, what are your thoughts on Richard Madden?
I think we can put this controversy to bed.

Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)
