Chris Fountain: 'Tommy isn't a bad boy'

Chris Fountain has insisted that his Coronation Street character Tommy Duckworth will not be a villain.

Chris_Fountain

The former Hollyoaks actor was cast in the part late last year, following in the footsteps of Darryl Edwards and Joseph Aston, who portrayed the younger versions of the character.

As Tommy's father is bad boy Terry Duckworth, fans have speculated over whether the Weatherfield returnee could take after his dad.

Chris-Fountain

However, in an interview with Soaplife, Fountain explained: "He is the son of Terry Duckworth but I don't think he's going to be as bad a character.

"He's more of a loveable rogue. He could be seen as quite smug and arrogant, but he's very charming. A real Jack the lad probably describes him best."

The star also confirmed reports that Tommy has an eye for the ladies, but added: "He doesn't make a good start. He tries it on with Sophie then with Sian. Later he sees them together and realises they're lesbians. But it's Tina who catches his eye."

Fountain makes his Coronation Street debut on March 28.

Twice as many groups as last year have reportedly auditioned for the new series of The X Factor.

One-Direction1
The Sun reports that out of 18,000 people at recent auditions in London, there were 1,000 groups, all hoping to follow JLS and One Direction by landing record deals after appearing on the show.

One Direction, Viva La Vida

"One Direction have totally changed the ball game this year," a source told the paper. "Every other act is now a band and they have put so much effort into their appearances.

one-direction
"We've been putting far more group acts through than in previous years."
However, the paper also claims that production staff are worried about the level of talent who have auditioned so far.

One Direction, Robbie Williams

"The talent pool is drying up. Production is finding itself in the situation where literally everyone who should have done so has already tried out," the insider added.
"The fact Simon [Cowell] and Cheryl [Cole] might not be there is also having an impact as people are obsessed by them. They figure they'll try out another year when they're back."

Henry Cavill, Man of Steel

Henry William Dalgliesh Cavill (born 5 May 1983) is a British actor. He has appeared in the films The Count of Monte Cristo and Stardust, and played the role of Charles Brandon, 1st Duke of Suffolk, on the Showtime series The Tudors, from 2007 until 2010. He has been cast to play Superman in the 2012 film Superman: Man of Steel.

henry_cavill11

Cavill had been set to star as Superman in director McG’s 2004 film Superman: Flyby. However, McG pulled out of the project and direction was taken over by director Bryan Singer, who recast Brandon Routh as the lead. Cavill was also the cause of a write-in effort of fans to see him cast as Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005). The role eventually went to Robert Pattinson. Stephenie Meyer, author of the Twilight series, was outspokenly in favor of Cavill playing the character of Edward Cullen in the Twilight film, calling him her "perfect Edward". By the time production of the movie began, however, Cavill was too old to play the character, and again the role went to Robert Pattinson. In 2005, Cavill was a final contender for the role of James Bond in Casino Royale. The producers and director Martin Campbell were torn between him and Daniel Craig; reportedly Campbell supported Cavill but the producers preferred an older Bond. Ultimately Craig landed the role. In their December 2005 issue, Empire magazine dubbed Cavill the "Unluckiest Man in Hollywood" for this series of near-misses. Despite reports that he was a contender for Batman in Batman Begins, Cavill confirmed that he never auditioned for nor was offered the role.

In early 2008, Cavill became a model/spokesperson for Dunhill fragrances. The television ad featured a suited-up Cavill walking through the Union Jack flag, before mounting a helicopter. A second television ad featured Cavill driving a car through a deserted London at night, and meeting with a young woman. He starred in director Joel Schumacher's horror film Blood Creek (2008) and in 2009 he had a minor role in Woody Allen’s comedy film Whatever Works.

Director Tarsem Singh cast Cavill in the lead role of Theseus in his mythological, big-budget special effects film Immortals, to be released November 11, 2011. In 2011 Cavill will star alongside Bruce Willis in The Cold Light of Day. On January 30, 2011, it was announced that Cavill had been cast in the role of Clark Kent/Superman in director Zack Snyder's Superman: Man of Steel. Snyder called Cavill "the perfect choice to don the cape and S shield."
