I know many of you will have seen the picture of Jonny meeting with producer Kevin McGann last week in London but an Irish newspaper has picked up the story and has also announced new additions to the cast. Should he accept the role he will be joining the newly announced Brendan Coyle (Downton Abbey), Colin Morgan (Merlin) and David O’Hara who starred alongside him in The Tudors as Henry Howard. It is not yet known what the role will be but it is believed to be a pivotal one. Hoping to hear more on this soon!
The Cork native met producer Kevin McCann in London to discuss his involvement in the film, which is slated for release on St Patrick’s Day. Rhys Meyers previously played the assassin that shot Liam Neeson’s Michael Collins in Neil Jordan’s 1996 film about the revolutionary leader.
Filming is due to begin in October and McCann has spent the last few weeks on a promotional tour in the US to “gain financial interest from investors”

Unfortunately due to circumstances out of my control JRM Source has had to move to another host due to problems I can’t go into. One major change is that I have had to buy back the sites original URL which it first started out with. I am hoping once the issues that have stopped me from continuing to use the .com domain have been resolved I can buy it back. Our new domain is below this post so if you have us saved in your favourites/bookmarks/RSSFeeds please change it because as of tomorrow at 12pm Atlanta time, you will no longer be able to access the site using our old address. If anyone has any problems anywhere along the line with anything at all, please let me know as there is bound to be something that may have been overlooked – H x

Today Jonathan is celebrating his 38th birthday and I would like to wish him as always, a very Happy Birthday. I hope he also has a wonderful day and gets lots of gifts as he is one of the people who deserves it most. I would also like to take the chance to thank everyone who contributed to this years birthday gift/project. The grand total that was raised for Los Angeles Mission in Jonnys name was £587 so again, a massive thankyou! Feel free to leave a birthday wish within the comments

After having the other wonderful theme online for well over a year it’s time for change again. I have had this one for quite a while and have been desperate to get it up but decided to wait until it was the sites 6th anniversary. Again it has a matching gallery theme and features a picture from one of my favourite shoots Jonny has done. It has been designed by the wonderful Lora who’s designs I absolutely adore. I hope you love the new look as much as what I do! If you spot any broken links, errors etc please let me know and don’t forget to subscribe to the site to receive all of the latest posts via email. I’ve also started to post again on the sites Instagram so if you’re on there too do give us a follow!
I am still replacing pictures in the gallery slowly but surely with the majority of categories aside from the filmography replaced with higher quality images. All lower quality should be at the bottom of the page with the better versions taking pride of place at the top. Some pages including the career section are still under construction so some links in the navigation may be broken but that will be rectified in time. Thankyou as always for your constant support <3
After seeing rumours circulating the past few weeks regarding the new London fanmail address I can now tell you that the address that was given for Pips new office is no longer in use. Unfortunately Jonny and Pip parted company earlier on in the year. The new address is situated in Los Angeles which I sent his birthday present to earlier in the year and this will be the main one for now until I hear otherwise. The gifts sent to London are still there and I’m sure the next time Jonny is in town and has time they can be sorted through so if you sent birthday mail there earlier in the year, don’t worry. The only address for fanmail is now to be sent to is the following;
Brillstein Entertainment Partners
9150 Wilshire Blvd, Suite 350
I had the pleasure of going to the awards ceremony and created some of the best ever memories which I will never forget and will post about my encounters with Jonny soon. I have added pictures to the gallery of the event in high and under high quality some of which are mine and some which were taken by the Irish Post. More fan pictures have been added also, all of which belong to their respective owners. Thankyou for posting them! Make sure to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter and I *may* just post my pictures with him. Watch this space..
According to the Irish Post and Irish Central, Jonathan is to be honoured for his work in film this October in London!
The date is set for the 2014 Irish Post Awards gala, and actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers will take the stage upon accepting the 2014 Legend Award. The Irish Post is the biggest selling national newspaper to the Irish in Britain, widely loved and respected by the Irish community. Award winning Northern Irish broadcaster and journalist Eamonn Holmes will be returning as Master of Ceremonies, and this year actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers will be receiving the 2014 Legend Award. “Jonathan has worked very hard from an early age in life and the story of his own career development is fascinating,” Loane said. “We are delighted to be able to recognize and honor his remarkable accomplishments.”
Jonathan Rhys Meyers’ achievements in film and television are to be recognised at this year’s Irish Post Awards. The Cork-raised actor will receive the Irish Legend award in recognition of his 20-year long career. He will also attend the black-tie event in London this October
HUGE congratulations to Jonathan, I can’t think of anyone more deserving for the award nor anything more fitting to pay tribute to his 20 years in the film industry ♥
