ROB RUMOURED TO BE PLAYING HENRY COSTIN




According to Metro News Robs character in The Lost City of Z will be Henry Costin who is the assistant of Percy Fawcett played by Benedict Cumberbatch.

Here is a little information of Henry Costin.

He was a British corporal who in 1910 was bored with military life, he answered a newspaper advertisment that Fawcett had posted seeking an adventurous companion.
Short and stocky with a bold Kiplingesque moustache and heavily hooded eyes, Costin had proven to be Fawcett's most durable and capable assistant.
He was exceedingly fit, having been a gymnastics instructor in the Army, and was a world-class marksman.
One of his sons later on summed him up this way.
"A tough bugger who hated bullshit"

Zoe how is Rob suppose to play short and stocky? He would have to put on 50 or 60 pounds and walk on his knees.  JS  I guess it can and will be done but......short and stocky?

the scriptwriters will have changed the build of the character for the movie..
just like movies adapted from books often change to suit the script for the big screen.
i seriously don't think Rob will be filming on his knees..JS
