Eight Great Photos of Toby Jones as Alfred Hitchcock in 'The Girl'
Normally we keep the non-theatrically released films away from our news flow, but every now and then HBO comes around with a promising film that we just can't ignore. Such is the case with The Girl, a film originally produced by the BBC with Toby Jones (Captain America: The First Avenger) as the iconic director and Sienna Miller as Tippi Hedren, the star of The Birds and Marnie. The film chronicles the obsessive relationship Hitchcock had with the actress, and though we've already had a great black and white first look, these new photos show Jones is going to give Anthony Hopkins a run for his money as Hitchcock and Miller looks just like Tippi Hendren in some of these recreated shots from The Birds. Check them out!
Here are the two new photos from Julian Jarrold's The Girl courtesy of TV Line:
These new images also just showed up with better looks at Sienna Miller (via Collider):
The Girl is directed by Julian Jarrold (Becoming Jane, Red Riding: 1974) and written by Gwyneth Hughes (Miss Austen Regrets). The BBC is behind the film, but HBO will premiere the film here in the United States on October 20th, so be sure to set your DVR's accordingly. We'll post a trailer as soon as one surfaces!
why does toby jones seem to just hop on projects as a far more mediocre version of the hollywood versions of films? First Capote and Infamous and now this...? I'll definitely still see it though. It's just funny he gets those roles

I don't think his versions are necessarily more mediocre, they're just not as high profile, and usually more independent. Infamous may not be as good of a film as Capote, but it was also completely different tonally, so it's a little hard to compare. HBO makes some damn good movies, and I think there's a chance for this to be every bit as good as Hitchcock with Anthony Hopkins.

Hopkins looks better. At least from that one picture.

A part of me thinks Toby looks gimmicky, and the other part of me thinks he would be really good. I had the same problem with Infamous - half of me couldn't take him seriously, the other half thought he was as good as Phillip. Guess I'll have to wait and see!

Toby Jones has a far too "distinctive" face to disappear into any well-known real life person, looks nothing like Hitch.
