This is a man thinking "Tis Good to be the King" while his mistress may well be thinking "Johnny, you have a nice big fortune and excellent taste - see me, see proof positive - but alas you're no Llewelyn!"
Well, the character is young and less jaded than all that-- she's actually in love with him.
Well there's no accounting for taste ... and Love remains, as ever, a Law unto itself.
I shall be very disappointed if this particular incarnation of King John does not sound like Mr Claude Rains when he speaks - he looks like one of the more suave John Lacklands.
He can sound like Claude Rains. Good idea
I'm not sure that any excuse to hear Mr Rain's wonderfully-mellifluous voice issuing from the throat of a suitably-stylish malefactor could ever be a BAD idea!
Yes, I think Claude Rains's voice would be a perfect match for John too!
He actually played the role in THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD, which if what made me think of him in the first place (I'd have paid money to see him play opposite Mr George Sanders purely because that would allow a delightful contest of purring villainy!).
I like dis.
