Eddie Izzard Plays Long John Silver



With a shaved head and a face tatoo, Eddie Izzard starred as Long John Silver in a televised version of Treasure Island that aired on the Sky 1 channel in the United Kingdom earlier this year. Now Eddie Izzard is my favorite comedian and Treasure Island is my favorite story, but I'll have to actually see this before I can pass true judgement. Elijah Wood plays Ben Gunn and Donald Sutherland plays Captain Flint (so you can tell there is some divergence from the novel). Lets hope this comes to the U.S. of A. so I can see it for meself.

UPDATE: Rumors around the internet are that this will have a stateside premiere sometime in "early spring 2012". On the Syfy channel. Well, here we are in spring...

UPDATE 2: Saturday, May 5 from 7-11PM (ET/PT) on Syfy!
