Favorite Face of the Day Tom Bateman
Amy Schumer's film Trainwreck, was one of my favorite comedies of 2015. I loved her unique way of story telling and laughed out loud all the way through, especially when Lebron James and Bill Hader were on screen together. I had read the bad reviews for Snatched, but thought with Amy there might still be lots to laugh about. There wasn't. I don't think I actually laughed until the movie was almost over, and they were all near the end, at the brilliant facial expressions of actress Joan Cusack.
Despite favorites like Amy, Goldie Hawn, Wanda Sykes and Ike Barinholtz, the best part of the flick was being introduced to the incredibly hot face of actor Tom Bateman. Tom wasn't in the film for long, but enough to have me googling more about the London born actor. A London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts graduate, Bateman was awarded the Leverhulme Scholarship and even before graduation was hitting the London stages alongside Catherine Tate and David Tennant in 'Much Ado About Nothing.'
After several roles on stage, and a few small roles on television, Bateman scored regular roles on The Tunnel, Da Vinci's Demons and one of the leads in Jekyll & Hyde. Bateman will be seen next on the big screen along side Johnny Depp and Michelle Pfeiffer in the remake of Murder on the Orient Express.
