||In 2004 Jude had no less than six movies opening in cinemas. The sudden flood of new releases sees him playing everything from a frustrated husband to cockney lothario and fearless pilot. And the actor seems determined to accept new challenges, having signed up for several more productions which will see him further flexing his thespian muscles.
He's next signed up to play the journalist-narrator in a big screen version of Robert Penn Warren's famous novel All The King's Men, in which he stars opposite two of America's most revered performers. Oscar winner Sean Penn takes on the role of politician Willie Stark, while Meryl Streep plays his controlling mistress Sadie.
