July is almost over and I can’t believe I haven’t posted my Monthly Murphy yet! I was sort confused of what to write. Bits of news of what he is been doing lately is the last I can think of…but I actually wanting to do something else as I have shared bits of his news last month.
Fortunately the movie everyone so excited about (I wasn’t that excited as I am not into superhero flicks anymore) was just been released 🙂
…And it seems that my favorite actor, Cillian Murphy has reprised his role as Dr. Jonathan Crane…therefore, it is a perfect time to write about Cillian Murphy with glasses.
NO…I am not talking about him wearing this black eye glasses that makes him looks incredibly yummy and definitely have ruined my life 😉
Now…enough with the fangirling mode…If I don’t control myself, this Monthly Murphy can turn into my obsessive tumblr page 😉
Out of all Cillian’s movies I have seen (see the list here), as far as I can remember (I could be wrong tho) Cillian has 3 characters wearing eye-glasses, each with a different look…It’s amazing how he can look so different while still wearing the same property.
Dr. Jonathan Crane – Batman Trilogy
This is the first time I saw him in a movie…he was looking so yummy and took away my attention from Christian Bale. Dr. Jonathan Crane is a corrupt psychiatrist. Cillian came to Nolan wanting to be Batman but as we all know he was too skinny , but Nolan ‘fell’ in love with him and gave him the part as Crane which he actually had chosen other actor for that part. He said Cillian has the most amazing blue eyes, he had to keep inventing reasons to ask him to take off his glasses (hehehe…so don’t give him glasses! 😉 )
Edward Dillinger, Jr – Tron: Legacy
Showing up for less than 2 minutes in Tron Legacy. He looks like an annoying smart-ass! But I still like him 😉
Mike – Broken
I haven’t seen this yet because the movie hasn’t been released to public yet. Cillian plays a teacher. From the image below, we can see that he looks just like ordinary school teacher…although if I ever had a teacher looking like him, I definitely couldn’t process the lesson he gave me because I was too busy admiring his face structure, his sexy voice and his beautiful eyes 😉
I take this pictures from this clip> Broken
Maybe…no scratch that…I am sure you haven’t seen all the movies above, just looking at the images I had uploaded…In which character do you think he looks the best?
Please vote … I love to know which Cillian is looking at his best while wearing eye-glasses 😉
As for me, I think he looks best as Dr. Crane. Nice hair style, very tidy, killer eyes and twisted personality…and his eye-glasses looks expensive 😉
As always, I will share bits of news and other things related to this gorgeous Irishman 🙂
- I made my first Guest post at Inspired Ground by sharing My Movie Influence in which I shared how Breakfast on Pluto has changed my way in enjoying movies
- Check this poster!! I don’t know whether it’s real or just a fanart…but whichever it is, it looks great. I got it from Tanya23
- I remembered all the interview where Cillian always tried to avoid the subject of him being in The Dark Knight Rises…it was fun hearing him trying to avoid the questions. It turns out, he did show up in TDKR (review coming up on Monday)
I think he is Nolan’s favorite Cameo 😉
a Quote from Nolan in Examiner.com
“Michael, Morgan, Gary, Cillian, Liam, Heath, Christian . . . Bale. Names that have come to mean so much to me”
- Cillian Murphy has revealed that he wants to star in “smaller films” in order to be closer to his family. (RTE.ie)
The Cork-born actor, who lives in London, played Dr Jonathan Crane/Scarecrow in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, and while he reprised the role in the latest blockbuster The Dark Knight Rises, Murphy said he doesn’t want to be part of any big movies for a while.
He explained to the Chicago Tribune: “I have lots of friends that live in Los Angeles, and they love it. I just feel like I’m European, and I want to do theatre, and I want to do TV, and I want to do smaller films, and I love the big studio pictures, but I want to be near my family. It’s just a priority.”
Murphy, who spent much of the past year starring in Enda Walsh’s one-man play Misterman, said of the acting profession: “I’ve always admired the actors that do both film and telly and theatre and are just like working actors – not movie stars or film stars, but actors who just want to do the best work wherever.
“I’m interested in stories that put people under pressure. I’m interested in what pressure does to the human psyche, and I’m interested in dramas where there’s a lot at stake.”
I often enjoy his smaller film than his blockbuster ones…but the problem with smaller films is the fact that they are rarely shown in Indonesia whereas I am addicted to seeing him in big screen 😦
I love how he still refuse to be a movie star, it really shows how down to earth he is.
- Horay….RED LIGHTS is Coming Soon. I honestly thought it won’t be played here, Today when I went to the cinema to see TDKR, I saw the poster in Coming soon area. Sooooooo happy!! I will check 21cineplex.com everyday because I don’t want to miss it like I miss Retreat in some movie festival.
- I received an Email from Myriam saying this:
“Check the Cilliansite! There is an interview with Ciilian in wich the interviewers are US!! (WE DID IT VIA SKYPE, they were in NYC) Now we can say that we co-starred in a video with him, ha, ha.. The “interviewers” are: Angelica (owner of the cilliansite, me (Myriam) Shannon and Valentina all of us participant on the fan book. Oh, and Susan, who sent a written question.

I don’t want to share it at my tumblr as my tumblr is just for fun. Here is the video…I envy them sooooo much 😉 The original post in The Cillian Site is here.
