Clive Owen has recently poses for New York Times magazine. Clive looks dashingly handsome for his age! Can’t wait for The Knick to premiere!
Clive Owen has chosen Fanelli Cafe in SoHo as the place to submit to an interview, and there’s a logic to that. He’s the star of “The Knick” — a television series set in Lower Manhattan at the turn of the 20th century that has featured opium dens and race riots — and Fanelli sits in a 168-year-old building that at various times served as brothel, African-American boardinghouse and speakeasy.
History, though, isn’t the reason the venerable bar has become a favorite of Mr. Owen’s as he’s spent more of his time in New York recently. His piercing gray eyes soften for a moment as he contemplates the pint of Guinness that’s been set in front of him at just the right temperature. “It’s very good here,” he says reverentially, in a tone usually reserved for announcing important putts. “I’ll tell you what, it is very good.”
He’s brought along a fellow Englishman, the actor and director Douglas Hodge, to check out the quality of the stout and to talk about the Harold Pinter play “Old Times,” which they’re in the middle of rehearsing.
The Roundabout Theater Company revival of the play, which opens at the American Airlines Theater on Oct. 6, is a milestone for both men.
Mr. Hodge, who won a Tony as an actor for “La Cage Aux Folles,” is directing in America for the first time. And Mr. Owen, whose intensity, technical polish and striking good looks have been showcased in films like “Croupier,” “Closer” and “Children of Men,” not only will be making his Broadway acting debut, but he’ll also be appearing onstage for the first time in 14 years — and in his first Pinter play.
