Rodrigo Santoro, who reprised his role as Xerxes in this year’s 300: Rise of an Empire ($330M+ worldwide) and was the voice of Tulio in Fox’s animated fav Rio 2 ($450M ww), has stepped into the indie drama about Welsh poet, Dylan Thomas. Dominion, which is based on the last day of Thomas’ short life at the White Horse Tavern in New York, is being shot in black and white by Steven Bernstein (cinematographer on Monster, Like Water for Chocolate) from his own script. The film also stars John Malkovich and Rhys Ifans.

Santoro will play the bartender at the White Horse, a pivotal role as a character who continues to communicate with Thomas throughout the film. Diego Luna was previously being talked up for the role. The tavern, which opened in 1880, became a well-known Bohemian hangout in New York in Greenwich Village in the 1950s and is still a going concern on Hudson and 11th St. The film is being produced by Richard Gladstein, who noted, “It’s not a biopic at all, but rather a testament to the man and his legacy.” Thomas died at the age of 39 of pneumonia but was a voracious drinker.

Santoro is hot as can be right now starring alongside Will Smith and Margot Robbie in the heist movie Focus and having just wrapped The 33, the true film about the Chilean miners. He also starred alongside Natalie Portman and Bradley Cooper in the western, Jane Got a Gun. As if that’s not enough, he is also associate producing the biopic Pele about the legendary soccer (or football, depending on your country) player, a project that’s currently in post with Brian Grazer. Speaking of soccer, he just starred and produced Heleno about Brazlian soccer star Heleno de Frietas which recently sold to HBO for distribution. Not bad timing since we are heading into the World Cup which kicks off June 13th and continues through mid-July.

The title of this film, Dominion, is obviously drawn from one of his most famous poems, And Death Shall Have No Dominion. As an aside, Ifans is a huge Dylan Thomas fan and is an expert on the poet. He is even planning a documentary on the Welshman.

Also included in the cast are Zosia Mamet (playwright David’s daughter who is best known for Girls), Tony Hale, and Philip Ettinger. Romola Garai (Emma mini-series) who has twice been nominated for Golden Globes, plays Caitlan Thomas.

He is repped by ICM Partner and Brillstein Entertainment Partners.

Welcome to RODRIGO-SANTORO.COM, your first and best resource dedicated to the talented actor Rodrigo Santoro. I’m Abel, the new owner of this amazing fansite.
Here you will find everything about him and his projects (news, interviews, photogallery…).
Thanks for visiting and please return to us daily;

Hey, I’m going to the coast for a couple of days to make some photos of the sea and spanish beaches – Yeah I’m a future professional photographer and this is part of my everyday practice :P .
Anyway guys, I see you all hopefully, on Friday night.

Rodrigo will appear on “Heleno” a movie dedicated to the Brazilian Football player, Heleno de Freitas. Along Rodrigo we’ll see the cute Alinne Moraes, who will play Heleno’s wife. The movie will start shooting next week and will have Rodrigo as the main star,
We can’t wait to see it. Stay tuned.

I manage to win the battle against spam. so the affiliationally script will stay with us – which will help a lot by the way. I see these days Rodrigo it’s a bit quiet, maybe not in Brazil, that’s why I’m asking to any of you if you have any piece of information and want to share it, please, send it to me. Just write on the subject “Rodrigo Web” in order for to know which site is about – as I run several.
I really want Rodrigo to be active again, cause I love him.

Lately I’m receiving huge amount of spam on my e.mail adress – for that reason, I’m trying to work out the affiliationally script, to check if I can get rid of it. If I’m not successful I’ll be obligued to deleted the script, cause it’s a nightmare – each morning I have like 150 emails of spam sites wanting to be affiliates.

I just want you all know what’s going on. Take care.

I decided to give Rodrigo a new look. what do you think??

I found this video surfing on the internet and I thought it would be nice to share it with all of you.


I know I shouldn’t do this, LOL. But… I’m terribly bored right now it goes. If any of you by chance likes Jared Leto or 30 Seconds to Mars , I highly recommend you to check this site.
