And her name is Glenn, for God’s sake. So it stands to reason that Glenn Close would make a fine old drag king. The 63-year-old stars as an English woman who disguises herself as a man to get by in a male-dominated society in 1890s Dublin in the upcoming movie Albert Nobbs. Apparently back in 1982 she appeared in the Off-Broadway play and has been trying to get it made into a movie ever since. According to The Daily Mail, the movie, which has a tiny $10 million budget, has been plagued with delays and cast changes, but filming finally got underway on Monday.
Michael Gambon and Jonathan Rhys Myers also star.
