Blog Number 58 - Andrew Tiernan cast as Ephialtes in Frank Miller's '300'

The latest news according to IMDB has British actor Andrew Tiernan assuming the role of Frank Miller's hunchback Ephialtes in '300'. What is interesting is that even though Dominic West and David Wenham's announcement to the cast of '300' has preceded that of Andrew Tiernan's inclusion by several weeks, their roles haven't been revealed as of yet, which has created even more speculation as to whom that they will be portraying.

It seems that now since the role of Ephialtes has been cast, the only other character from '300' who has yet to be named is Dilios the storyteller, which seems to be tailor-made for the Aussie Wenham.

Andrew Tiernan was in fact the first person after Gerard Butler to be cast in the film!!! his name wasn't added to IMdB for ages for unknown reasons! He's notoriously publicity shy.

Thank you for the info about Andrew Tiernan. I suspect that his visibility will increase with the success of '300'.
