Speech cast fills out

11.16.2009

Tom Hooper's THE KING’S SPEECH just got a shot in the arm in the form of a team of new actors who have signed on to star alongside Colin Firth and Geoffrey Rush. Helena Bonham Carter, Jennifer Ehle, Guy Pearce, Derek Jacobi, Timothy Spall and Michael Gambon have all officially boarded the project, though their roles remain under wraps for now.

The period drama follows the young King George VI -- the father of the current Queen Elizabeth II -- as he reluctantly assumes the throne after his brother, Edward, abdicates.

Considered unfit to rule and cursed with a nervous stammer, the unprepared monarch turns to an unorthodox speech therapist, Lionel Logue. The two men form an unlikely friendship as King George finds his voice and leads the country into war against the Nazis.

King George led the country into war against the Nazis? What about that one guy, Chamber-something? Yeah.

Extra Tidbit: Guy Pearce? Sign me up.
