EW – Saturday night’s alright for fighting…and so, apparently, is any other night (or day) when it comes to the contentious professional and romantic relationship between Elton John (Taron Egerton) and his manager John Reid (Richard Madden).

Rocketman chronicles Elton John’s rise to fame from his early days as a childhood piano-playing prodigy to the peak of his fame in the 1970s and ’80s and his descent into a drug-fueled haze. The film also gave fans a glimpse into John’s fraught love life, including a toxic relationship with his manager John Reid.

In this exclusive deleted clip, tensions mount once again between the pair as they continue to fight over what’s best for Elton’s career — here, it’s whether or not to disclose his sexuality to his mother, a figure who has been a nearly lifelong source of angst for the rock star. As Elton prepares for a show, Reid corners him about coming out to his mother, even threatening to tell her himself.

“What I love about our scenes in the film is that they are two massive personalities,” Egerton previously told EW about sharing the screen with Madden. “It’s a bit like an unstoppable force and an immovable object and a lot of the conflict in the film lies there. We had great scenes to play with.” Including some that didn’t make the final cut, as seen here.

Though they’d never met before filming, Egerton and Madden became fast friends working together on Rocketman and their friendship has proved a fan favorite ever since, with the pair adorably reuniting at EW’s Comic-Con party last month.

While promoting the film, Egerton and Madden told EW they were highly anticipating the DVD bonus features, including a cut portion of their “Honky Cat” musical number. “It’s very cheeky and naughty and we had a lot of fun with it despite the logistical challenges,” said Egerton. “Richard was better at it than I was. There’s a sequence that’s cut actually, which is slightly heartbreaking because a lot of work went into it.”

The Digital, 4k Ultra HD, and Blu-ray releases boast over 75 minutes of bonus content, most notably four extended musical sequences and 10 deleted/extended scenes, including the one exclusively featured here. Other features include sing-along tracks of 13 songs; interviews with Elton John, the cast, and filmmakers; footage from recording studio sessions, as well as three featurettes exclusive to the digital release.

Watch the clip above for more. Rocketman is available on digital beginning August 6.

There’s out of work, and then there’s out of work. Thanks to the success of ‘Bodyguard’, Richard Madden is enjoying the good kind, kicking back with the world at his feet

Photoshoots > Session 055

 

THE JACKAL – This is not how it should be. Richard Madden, gingerbread-haired and always smouldering, is sitting in the basement of a working men’s club in south-east London, relishing the fact he has absolutely nothing to do. Not now, at least. Tomorrow, the Glaswegian actor is presenting a BAFTA award with his Rocketman co-stars Taron Egerton and Jamie Bell, but he’s so relaxed about it he doesn’t even know the category yet (Special Visual Effects), or the nominees (it goes to Black Panther). The most pressing thing he needs to do today, ahead of an upcoming trip back to the US, is go to his house and locate his razor.

This is not how it should be. Not for the man who played Robb Stark, Game of Thrones’ tragic demi-protagonist whose death at the Red Wedding in 2013 became the TV event of the decade/century/millennium. Once his father, Ned Stark (Sean Bean), lost his head early on in the show’s run, everyone thought Robb Stark would be the new leading man. Maybe it was his hair, tousled and luscious; maybe it was his princely jawline, or his unwavering moral compass. He looked good riding a horse, was that it? This is what a leading man consists of, everyone said. Then he was murdered.

This is not how it should be. Not for the man who played David Budd, central figure in Jed Mercurio’s Bodyguard, the six-part series that brought the country together in an age where we’ve never had more things to watch on TV. It was the biggest Sunday-night drama since Downton Abbey; when a British tabloid ran a spoiler on the front page, the country was up in arms. The show’s distribution in the US on Netflix boosted its profile even further – and Madden
won a Golden Globe. Someone, somewhere whispered Bond and suddenly everyone frothed at the mouth because, of course! To put it another way, it takes him so long to leave the working men’s club, with the pictures, and the adoration, and the swarm of well-wishing locals, that the Bodyguard star may soon need a bodyguard.

‘I had to learn to get over waiting for it to all go to shit.’

VARIETY – Richard Madden, best known for playing Robb Stark on “Game of Thrones,” is in negotiations to join Taron Egerton in Paramount’s Elton John biopic “Rocketman” as the music icon’s longtime manager, John Reid.

 

Jamie Bell is also on board to play Bernie Taupin with Dexter Fletcher attached to helm the project. Lee Hall penned the script. Paramount Pictures will finance and distribute the pic.

 

Reid, a legendary music manager in the ’70s and ’80s who also helped with Queen’s rise to fame in the mid-’70s, managed John from 1970 to 1998. Along the way, the two also became lovers, but their romance ended after five years following the leak of a letter from John’s accountants detailing Reid’s spending that was uncovered by the Daily Mail. The two would continue to work together professionally until 1998.

 

Matthew Vaughn and his Marv Films will produce, along with John and his Rocket Pictures partner David Furnish.

 

The role is a big win for Madden, who has been particular about the film roles he chooses since leaving “Game of Thrones” after Season 3. He did co-star in Disney’s “Cinderella” as the Prince and also appeared with Idris Elba in “The Take.” On the TV side since “Game of Thrones,” he has starred in the Netflix show “Medici: Masters of Florence” and Amazon’s “Electric Dreams.”

 

He is repped by WME and Troika.
