Lovely quote from Empire's review of Florence Foster Jenkins - "We hear it for the first time along with Cosmé, a camp, innocent young pianist who has absolutely no idea what he is in for. Watching Helberg is flat-out hilarious. He puts in a wonderfully nuanced comic performance as a range of emotions - from disbelief to hysteria - flicker across his face."

Well done, Simon :-)

Simon Helberg: from Big Bang nerd to Meryl Streep’s cartoonish pianist

Last year, Stephen Frears had a man round for tea. His name was Simon Helberg, and Frears had just cast him as an accompanist in his new film, about a howlingly awful operatic soprano in 1940s New York who somehow still managed to sell out Carniege Hall faster than Frank Sinatra. Frears needed someone who could play piano as well as act – his composer, Alexandre Desplat, tipped him off about Helberg. A happy meeting with the film’s star, Meryl Streep (“I just think he fell from heaven,” she explains), cemented the deal.

Anyway, after tea, Frears took his young protege for a stroll round Notting Hill. “People came out of their houses just to stare at him,” the director remembers. “They were wide-eyed. They couldn’t believe he was here. It was then I thought: ‘That show really is popular …’”

That show is The Big Bang Theory, the long-running US sitcom about science nerds that is watched by about 15 million people each week – few of them of an age to be the target market for Florence Foster Jenkins.....

Just come back from watching the film and have to agree with this comment.  Simon was great both in acting and piano playing really enjoyed it.
