Goode to get 'Stoked' for new role?

Matthew Goode starred in the Zach Snyder film Watchmen

Matthew Goode is in talks to take the male lead in Stoker, it has been reported.

The Watchmen actor is tipped to play the role of the mysteriously named uncle, which Colin Firth had previously been linked to, in Oldboy director Park Chan-Wook's English language debut, Variety's Showblitz blog said.

Alice In Wonderland starlet Mia Wasikowska portrays a teenage girl who, while mourning the death of her father must deal with the sudden appearance of an uncle, as people go missing in her hometown at the same time.

Nicole Kidman has been cast as her mother.

Prison Break star Wentworth Miller wrote the script for the fantasy fairytale under the pseudonym Ted Foulke, with Ridley and Tony Scott taking on producing parts.

Since Zack Snyder's Watchmen, Matthew, who played Adrian Veidt (Ozymandias), has had roles in A Single Man, Leap Year and Cemetery Junction.

Escaping the fray will be a relief. Although you enjoy socialising, you also crave private time. Being able to watch movies, read books and listen to music replenishes your batteries. A needy relative could request help. This would be a good time to establish some healthy boundaries. Stop dropping everything for this relative's benefit.More
