Billy Crudup is NOT a huge name in Hollywood, but a BIG talent. He’s an American actor known for his skill in film & theater. He is gifted w/ accents, physical grace, and the abiltiy to delve deep into a role.
In Charlotte Gray (starring the always great Cate Blanchett) he’s a committed freedom fighter in WWII France.
In Stage Beauty he’s the last famous female actor in Elizabethan England who fears being replaced by a REAL woman onstage. Claire Danes is his assistant/love interest/competition onstage. Their chemistry, the dialogue, and music are SUPERB!!! I don’t wanna give much away- check out the film ASAP!
