Do you know who is utterly delightful? Richard E. Grant. Remember when he got nominated for an Oscar this year and didn’t win it, even though he totally deserved to? I do. I think about that a lot. Thankfully, Grant is returning to the spotlight in a big way this month because he is a star (if not THE star) of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. If you thought you were excited for this casting then think about how enthused Grant is. Thankfully, for those of you who missed it, he’s taken to Twitter to let everyone know how wonderful this all is. Guys, we don’t deserve Richard E. Grant. He’s so pure!
Just seen the 1st cast screening of @starwars #THE RISE OF SKYWALKER. What it achieves, weaves & resolves, is a total emotional meltdown & resurrection of the Spirit. Bravo to @jjabrams & his astonishing cast & creative crew 💥🚀💥🚀💥🚀💥🚀💥🚀💥🚀 pic.twitter.com/EwtYghYTXK— Richard E. Grant (@RichardEGrant) December 4, 2019
If you’re not following Grant on social media, rectify that error now. You definitely won’t regret it.
Bonus fact: Grant will soon appear in the movie adaptation of the British musical Everybody’s Talking About Jamie as a drag queen and he has clearly loved the experience. That is a fabulous shade of blue, Richard!
Seriously though, dude was robbed of his Oscar. He’s phenomenal in Can You Ever Forgive Me?
