Did you hear about British actor Billy Howle yet?
Well get ready to more and more from now on.
The newcomer – who most recently served as a quite-handsome face of Prada (wouldn’t you agree?) – has landed the male lead in the forthcoming Saoirse Ronan-starring adaptation of Ian McEwan’s On Chesil Beach, which the novelist wrote himself (the script, that is...try to keep up).
Howle will take on the role of Edward, while Ronan will play his betrothed, Florence, in 1960s England, a very prim time. The conflict of the story comes from the couple seeing their relationship explode like fireworks – and not necessarily the good kind – on their wedding night.
And, I am guessing, not because one of them disliked the cake.
