Trailer for Richard Curtis's Pirate Radio Starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, Billy Nighy, and Rhys Ifans

Movie Preview: Philip Seymour Hoffman in Pirate Radio

I'm an unabashed Richard Curtis lover — he's the writer and director of Love, Actually, one of my favorite movies, and his next one, Pirate Radio is out next month.

The movie stars Philip Seymour Hoffman as a 1960s deejay in Britain who takes to the water when the government bans rock and roll. I'm all for a retro Hoffman (he's totally channeling his rock critic character in Almost Famous here) but I'm just as excited about the British support: frequent Curtis stars Bill Nighy and Rhys Ifans, as well as Simon Pegg's right-hand man Nick Frost. Keep an eye out for Mad Men's January Jones, who gets to embrace the '60s hippie side of things.
