''Him And Us'' Casting Continues

Wednesday 1 February 2006 @ 17:19 - GMT

With Billy Elliot winning Best Musical at the 17th Critics' Circle Theatre Awards and the Theatregoers' Choice Awards' Best New Musical, the February 26 Laurence Olivier Awards look promising.

But this isn't the only show on Elton's mind. EJW recently announced that Ashley Williams will join ABC's comedy pilot, Him And Us, based on the superstar's life.

Now another performer has been cast: London-born Anthony Stewart Head has landed the lead. He was in the WB programme, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, and there had been talk of a BBC spin-off with him, called Ripper.
