BILLY LYNN'S LONG HALFTIME WALK
JOE ALWYN (BILLY LYNN) This year will see British actor Joe
Alwyn star in one of the most anticipated movies of the year, as he takes on the
lead role in the upcoming film from Oscar-winning director Ang Lee in Billy
Lynn's Long Halftime Walk. Joe was picked from obscurity to take on the title
role of 'Billy Lynn' in what will be his acting debut.
Joe will also be seen in Ritesh Batra's upcoming BBC Films movie The Sense of an
Ending. Based on a book by the same name, written by Julian Barnes and adapted
for the screen by Nick Payne, the film follows Tony Webster who is divorced and
retired, leading a reclusive and relatively quiet life. One day, he learns that
the mother of his university girlfriend, Veronica, left in her will a
diary kept by his best friend who dated Veronica after she and Tony parted ways.
Tony's quest to recover the diary, now in Veronica's possession, forces him to
revisit his flawed recollections of his friends and of his younger self. As he
digs deeper into his past, it all starts to come back; the first love, the
broken heart, the deceit, the regrets, the guilt. Joe appears opposite Jim
Broadbent, Charlotte Rampling, Emily Mortimer, Michelle Dockery, Billy Howle and
Freya Mavor. The film is due for release in September 2016.
Joe studied English and Drama at Bristol University and then at the Royal
